Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover a fresh perspective on America's greatest moral revolution in "Waging a Good War." Pulitzer Prize-winning author Thomas E. Ricks draws on his deep knowledge of tactics and strategy to examine the surprising affinities between the ethos of nonviolence embodied by Martin Luther King Jr. and the organized pursuit of success at war. With engaging storytelling, Ricks deftly narrates the triumphs and defeats of the Civil Rights Movement, highlighting both well-known and lesser-known figures who played critical roles. This book offers vital lessons for our own time and is a must-read for all those interested in racial justice and social change.

I really loved this book, and I think you will too, especially if you are interested in how social change can be brought about non-violently.      источник

Но в пуританском обществе, где каждый сосед следит за происками дьявола, девушка оказывается мишенью для слухов и подозрений. Вскоре она вынуждена искать спасение не только от мужа, но и от виселицы.

Tennessee Williams
Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh
John Lahr - 2014-09-22
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the life of one of the most brilliant dramatists of his time in Tennessee Williams: Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh. This deeply researched biography sheds light on Tennessee Williams's family, guilt, creative triumphs and failures, sexuality, and numerous affairs. John Lahr explores how Williams's relationships informed his work and brought turmoil to his personal life. With vivid cameos of the formative influences in Williams's life, this book transcends the typical biography to become a trenchant exploration of Williams’s plays and the tortured process of bringing them to stage and screen. Lahr captures not just Williams’s tempestuous public persona but also his backstage life, where major players like Marlon Brando and Bette Davis have scintillating walk-on parts. This is a biography of the highest order: a book about the major American playwright of his time written by the major American drama critic of his time.

My favorite book in last few months is the John Lahr bio of Tennessee Williams. Riveting, stunning. His life and plays, and our lives, too.      источник
