Toni Tennille: A Memoir

Toni Tennille: A Memoir by Toni Tennille & Caroline Tennille St. ClairSince bursting onto the scene in the mid ‘70s, the pop duo Captain and Tennille have long defined the sparkling, optimistic idea of everlasting love, both in their music and through their image as a happy and, seemingly, unbreakable couple. But underneath the image was an entirely different story that the fans never saw: a woman who fought a lonely struggle against the controlling and often bizarre behavior of her emotionally inaccessible husband. Toni Tennille: A Memoir is a visceral account of Toni Tennille??s life from her childhood in the segregated South to her thrilling rise to fame...

Red Shadows Of The Blood Moon

Red Shadows Of The Blood Moon by MSW-LCSW John Wesley ContwayRed Shadows of the Blood Moon is a history lesson, a memoire, and a slap-in-the-face wakeup call for a country whose first people have been relegated to the basement of our national consciousness. John Contway writes like he lives, with a mix of irreverent humor and biting candor. His version of the native oral tradition ranges from the abduction of his Lakota great-grandmother by a Civil War veteran to the genesis of his rock and roll career on the Montana Hi-Line. He reveals a heart too tender for its environment, contrasted by wit and rage sharpened in a world that will never know how to...

Bullets and Bylines: From the Frontlines of Kabul, Delhi, Damascus and Beyond by Shyam Bhatia

A Joyful Pilgrimage: My Life in Community

A Joyful Pilgrimage: My Life in Community by Emmy ArnoldIn the tumultuous aftermath of the First World War, thousands of young Germans defied the social mores of their parents - and the constricting influence of the established churches - in search of freedom, social equality, nature, and community. Hiking clubs were formed and work camps organized, and hundreds of rural folk schools and communes sprang up across the country. In the 1930s, Nazism swallowed this so-called Youth Movement virtually whole.

A Joyful Pilgrimage is the engaging story of a remnant that survived: the Bruderhof, a 75-year-old community that began when the author and her husband,...

The author of the best-selling Terror and Liberalism on the rise to power of the generation of 1968.

The student uprisings of 1968 erupted not only in America but also across Europe, expressing a distinct generational attitude about politics, the corrupt nature of democratic capitalism, and the evil of military interventions. Yet, thirty-five years later, many in that radical generation had come into conventional positions of power: among them Bill Clinton (who reportedly stayed up all night reading this book) and Joschka Fischer, foreign minister of Germany. During a 1970s street protest, Fischer...

The Naked Shore: Of the North Sea

The Naked Shore: Of the North Sea by Tom BlassSaturnine and quick-tempered, the formidable North Sea is often overlooked - even by those living within a stone's throw of its steel-grey waters. But as playground, theatre of war and cultural crossing-point, it has shaped the world in myriad ways, forged villains and heroes, and determined the fates of nations.

It's not all grim, though: the seaside holiday was born on North Sea beaches, and artists, poets and writers have been as equally inspired by glinting sun on the wave-tops as they have the drama of a winter storm.

With a wry eye and a warm coat, Tom Blass travels the edges of the...

Postcards from Stanland: Journeys in Central Asia

Postcards from Stanland: Journeys in Central Asia by David H. Mould

Central Asia has long stood at the crossroads of history. It was the staging ground for the armies of the Mongol Empire, for the nineteenth-century struggle between the Russian and British empires, and for the NATO campaign in Afghanistan. Today, multinationals and nations compete for the oil and gas reserves of the Caspian Sea and for control of the pipelines. Yet “Stanland” is still, to many, a terra incognita, a geographical blank.

Beginning in the mid-1990s, academic and journalist David Mould??s career took him to the region on Fulbright Fellowships and contracts as a media trainer and...
