Описание: "NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith galvanized readers with their astonishing "Jackson Pollock: An American Saga," winner of the Pulitzer Prize for biography, a book acclaimed for its miraculous research and overwhelming narrative power. Now Naifeh and Smith have written another tour de force--an exquisitely detailed, compellingly readable, and ultimately heartbreaking portrait of creative genius Vincent van Gogh. Working with the full cooperation of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Naifeh and Smith have accessed a wealth of previously untapped materials. While drawing liberally from the artist's famously eloquent letters, they have also delved into hundreds of unpublished family correspondences, illuminating with poignancy the wanderings of Van Gogh's troubled, restless soul. Naifeh and Smith bring a crucial understanding to the larger-than-life mythology of this great artist--his early struggles to find his place in the world; his intense relationship with his brother Theo; his impetus for turning to brush and canvas; and his move to Provence, where in a brief burst of incandescent productivity he painted some of the best-loved works in Western art. The authors also shed new light on many unexplored aspects of Van Gogh's inner world: his deep immersion in literature and art; his erratic and tumultuous romantic life; and his bouts of depression and mental illness. Though countless books have been written about Van Gogh, and though the broad outlines of his tragedy have long inhabited popular culture, no serious, ambitious examination of his life has been attempted in more than seventy years. Naifeh and Smith have re-created Van Gogh's life with an astounding vividness and psychological acuity that bring a completely new and sympathetic understanding to this unique artistic genius whose signature images of sunflowers and starry nights have won a permanent place in the human imagination.

Описание: For half a century, criminal defense lawyer Leonard Weinglass defended a who's who of the twentieth-century left in some of America's most spectacular trials. "The typical call I get is one that starts by saying, 'You're the fifth attorney we've called, '" he once said. "Then I get interested." Those calls came from the likes of the SDS, the Chicago Seven, Daniel Ellsberg, Abbie Hoffman, and Mumia Abu-Jamal, among many others. In a field dominated by egomaniacs, Weinglass was known for his humility, his common touch, his ability to work collectively, his kindness, and his attention to detail. This long-overdue biography captures the vibrant life and inspiring legacy of an American iconoclast. Praise for Len, A Lawyer in History "For decades Seth Tobocman has been working within the comics vernacular to create a unique language, and with Len he's at the top of his game...brilliantly applying himself not only with pencil and ink on paper, but as an active participant in the same political struggles that Len Weinglass valiantly dedicated his life to solving." --Peter Kuper, author of Ruins "Tobocman has conjoined past and present to create singular, beautiful, volatile images of struggle.... At the center of this explosion--as example and harbinger, but most of all as an incendiary intimate portrait--stands Len himself. Our coalitions will forever be enriched by his presence, and by the demands his legacy bequeaths." --AK Thompson, author of Black Bloc, White Riot "I met Len Weinglass in 1964.... He was learned, funny, and the best damned trial lawyer I ever saw in a courtroom.... The chapters on Newark, Chicago, and the Pentagon Papers case will help a new generation understand the substance behind all the blurry labels about the time." --Tom Hayden, author of The Port Huron Statement "The book is dramatic in its reach and speechless in its words. It's not just about Len, but who we were as people during his journey. Remarkable." --Stanley L. Cohen, attorney and political activist "Len said: 'I would classify myself as radical American. I want to spend my time defending people who have committed their time to progressive social change.' This exemplifies how, along with Michael Ratner, William Kunstler, and other US lawyers around the Center for Constitutional Rights in New York, he was an incredibly important role model for radical human rights lawyers in Europe such as myself." --Wolfgang Kaleck, Secretary General, European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights

Описание: Prominent observers complain that public discourse in America is shallow and unedifying. This condition is often attributed to the resurgence of religion in public life. This title argues that this diagnosis is not primarily religion but rather the strictures of secular rationalism that have drained our modern discourse of force and authenticity.
