Описание: The shocking tale told in How I Helped O. J. Get Away With Murder is unlike anything you've read before; it isn't Mike Gilbert's "version" of what happened--it's the unvarnished truth: the truth about O. J., the murders, and the infamous trial. Not as Gilbert imagined or would like it to be, but how it actually was. Gilbert doesn't spare anyone, not even himself--he helped deceive the jury and feels deeply responsible for the "Not Guilty" verdict. So why is Gilbert speaking out now? Has he gone from sinner to saint? Is he making a play for sympathy or looking to make a quick buck? No. (Proceeds from this book are going to March of Dimes and other selected charities.) Gilbert has written this book because he regrets what he did for his adored childhood idol. He can no longer find any excuse for how he has shielded O. J. Simpson, and he is determined to tell the full truth, including: --O. J.'s late-night confession to Gilbert --How Gilbert was responsible for O. J.'s hand not fitting the murder glove --Why O. J. murdered Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman (it was more than jealousy) --Why Gilbert defended O. J. for so long--and what finally convinced him he could do so no longer -- How O. J. ignored his financial obligations to the Goldman family and milked the tabloids for money --The real reason why an armed O. J. burst in on the memorabilia collectors in Las Vegas (Gilbert had what O. J. was looking for) Told with searing candor, no one comes out of this book with his reputation intact--including Gilbert's own. But he casts a glaring light on how celebrity can corrupt, how power can mislead, and how friendship and loyalty can be perverted. His book is meant to set the record straight, to lay to rest the ghosts of that dreadful night that have haunted him ever since, and to now play what little part he can to forward the process of justice.

A "LOS ANGELES TIMES" BESTSELLER A "NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW "EDITOR'S CHOICE Bestselling author Richard Reeves provides an authoritative account of the internment of more than 120,000 Japanese-Americans and Japanese aliens during World War II
Less than three months after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and inflamed the nation, President Roosevelt signed an executive order declaring parts of four western states to be a war zone operating under military rule. The U.S. Army immediately began rounding up thousands of Japanese-Americans, sometimes giving them less than 24 hours to vacate their houses and farms. For the rest of the war, these victims of war hysteria were imprisoned in primitive camps.

In "Infamy," the story of this appalling chapter in American history is told more powerfully than ever before. Acclaimed historian Richard Reeves has interviewed survivors, read numerous private letters and memoirs, and combed through archives to deliver a sweeping narrative of this atrocity. Men we usually consider heroes-FDR, Earl Warren, Edward R. Murrow-were in this case villains, but we also learn of many Americans who took great risks to defend the rights of the internees. Most especially, we hear the poignant stories of those who spent years in "war relocation camps," many of whom suffered this terrible injustice with remarkable grace.

Racism, greed, xenophobia, and a thirst for revenge: a dark strand in the American character underlies this story of one of the most shameful episodes in our history. But by recovering the past, "Infamy" has given voice to those who ultimately helped the nation better understand the true meaning of patriotism.

Praise for "Infamy"

A compulsively readable, emotionally rich and passionately written account of the internment of 120,000 American Japanese in concentration camps during World War II.... Reeves' excellent "Infamy," the first popular, general history of the subject in more than 25 years, reminds us that not only can it happen here, it did.... Every reader who has lived the post-9/11 era will immediately notice the parallels. "Los Angeles Times"

Highly readable.... The story of this national disgrace, long buried...still has the power to shock. "Infamy" is a] vivid and instructive reminder of what war and fear can do to civilized people. Evan Thomas, "The New York Times Book Review"

History's judgment is that internment...was wrong. Mr. Reeves's excellent book gives us an opportunity to learn from past mistakes.... Reeves is especially good at bringing to life the social experience of internment. "The Wall Street Journal"

Richard Reeves's book on the harsh, prolonged and unjustified internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II is a detailed account of a painful and shameful period in modern American history. "Infamy" combines Reeves's journalist's training with his historian's eye to give us a page-turner on how hysteria at the highest levels can shatter our most fundamental rights. Brace yourself and read this very important book. "Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation"

For years, the unjust relocation and incarceration of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans living on the West Coast during World War II - the majority of them American citizens - was shrouded in shame and secrecy.... "Infamy"'s] greatest strength is probably Reeves's masterful use of anecdotes, which enliven an epic story with poignant tales of individual hardship, courage, and endurance. "The Boston Globe"

"Infamy" tells the story of why and how the American government--with the full support of its citizenry--illegally interned Japanese-Americans. Richard Reeves even-handedly examines this dangerous precedent-setting time when the Constitution was trampled by misinformation, prejudice, and fear. Today as Muslim and Hispanic immigrants are being blamed for America's ills, "Infamy" is a timely and important read. "James Bradley, author of Flags of Our Fathers and

Описание: Humphrey Bogart said of "Confidential": "Everybody reads it but they say the cook brought it into the house" . . . Tom Wolfe called it "the most scandalous scandal magazine in the history of the world" . . . "Time" defined it as "a cheesecake of innuendo, detraction, and plain smut . . . dig up one sensational 'fact, ' embroider it for 1,500 to 2,000 words. If the subject thinks of suing, he may quickly realize that the fact is true, even if the embroidery is not."
Here is the never-before-told tale of "Confidential" magazine, America's first tabloid, which forever changed our notion of privacy, our image of ourselves, and the practice of journalism in America.
The magazine came out every two months, was printed on pulp paper, and cost a quarter. Its pages were filled with racy stories, sex scandals, and political exposes. It offered advice about the dangers of cigarettes and advocated various medical remedies. Its circulation, at the height of its popularity, was three million. It was first published in 1952 and took the country by storm.
Readers loved its lurid red-and-yellow covers; its sensational stories filled with innuendo and titillating details; its articles that went far beyond most movie magazines, like "Photoplay" and "Modern Screen, " and told the real stories such trade publications as "Variety" and the "Hollywood Reporter" couldn't, since they, and the movie magazines, were financially dependent on--or controlled by--the Hollywood studios.
In "Confidential'"s pages, homespun America was revealed as it really was: our most sacrosanct movie stars and heroes were exposed as wife beaters (Bing Crosby), homosexuals (Rock Hudson and Liberace), neglectful mothers (Rita Hayworth), sex obsessives (June Allyson, the cutie with the page boy and Peter Pan collar), mistresses of the rich and dangerous (Kim Novak, lover of Ramfis Trujillo, playboy son of the Dominican Republic dictator).
" "
"Confidential'"s alliterative headlines told of tawny temptresses (black women passing for white), pinko partisans (liberals), lisping lads (homosexuals) . . . and promised its readers what the newspapers wouldn't
reveal: "The Real Reason for Marilyn Monroe's Divorce" . . . How "James Dean Knew He Had a Date with Death" . . . The magazine's style, success, and methods ultimately gave birth to the "National Enquirer," "Star, People, E , Access Hollywood, " and "TMZ" . . .
We see the two men at the magazine's center: its founder and owner, Robert Harrison, a Lithuanian Jew from New York's Lower East Side who wrote for "The New York Graphic" and published a string of girlie magazines, including" Titter, Wink, " and "Flirt" (Bogart called the magazine's founder and owner the King of Leer) . . . and "Confidential "'s most important editor: Howard Rushmore, small-town boy from a Wyoming homestead; passionate ideologue; former member of the Communist Party who wrote for the "Daily Worker, "renounced his party affiliation, and became a virulent Red-hunter; close pal of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and expert witness before the House Committee on Un-American Activities, naming the names of actors and writers Rushmore claimed had been Communists and fellow travelers.
Henry Scott writes the story of two men, who out of their radically different pasts and conflicting obsessions, combined to make the magazine the perfect confluence of explosive ingredients that reflected the America of its time, as the country struggled to reconcile Hollywood's blissful fantasy of American life with the daunting nightmare of the nuclear age . . .

What Are You Looking At?: The Surprising, Shocking, and Sometimes Strange Story of One Hundred Years of Modern Art

Описание: Channeling Bill Bryson's engaging style, a former director of London's Tate gallery wields his wit and expertise in this smart, entertaining narrative tour of modern art.
We all know what modern art looks like. We've seen Monet's water lilies, we've admired Picasso's nudes, and we've gawked at Damien Hirst's shark, as well as the price tag. But what does it all mean? What is modern art? Who started it? Why do we love and/or hate it? And why is it such big money? "What Are You Looking At?" takes readers on a captivating tour of modern art from impressionism to the present day, telling the story of the movements, the artists, and the works that not only changed art forever but also helped create and define the modern world.
Refreshingly irreverent yet eminently readable and informative, the book is rich with extraordinary tales and anecdotes--a morning coffee in Paris with Monet and the impressionists; Marcel Duchamp purchasing his famous urinal; Sir Nicholas Serota, the director of the Tate empire, confessing his terror at not knowing what to think each time he encounters a new work of art.
With his offbeat humor, down-to-earth storytelling, and flair for odd details that spark insights, Will Gompertz is the perfect tour guide for modern art. His book doesn't tell us if a work of art is good; it gives us the knowledge to decide for ourselves.

Описание: Strange Medicine casts a gimlet eye on the practice of medicine through the ages that highlights the most dubious ideas, bizarre treatments, and biggest blunders. From bad science and oafish behavior to stomach-turning procedures that hurt more than helped, Strange Medicine presents strange but true facts and an honor roll of doctors, scientists, and dreamers who inadvertently turned the clock of medicine backward:

- The ancient Egyptians applied electric eels to cure gout.
- Medieval dentists burned candles in patients' mouths to kill invisible worms gnawing at their teeth.
- Renaissance physicians timed surgical procedures according to the position of the stars, and instructed epileptics to collect fresh blood from the newly beheaded.
- Dr. Walter Freeman, the world's foremost practitioner of lobotomies, practiced his craft while traveling on family camping trips, cramming the back of the station wagon with kids--and surgical tools--then hammering ice picks into the eye sockets of his patients in between hikes in the woods.

Strange Medicine is an illuminating panorama of medical history as you've never seen it before.
