Описание: Counterculture icon and best-selling author of the anti-authoritarian novels One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest and Sometimes a Great Notion, Ken Kesey said he was too young to be a beatnik and too old to be a hippie. It s All a Kind of Magic is the first biography of Kesey. It reveals a youthful life of brilliance and eccentricity that encompassed wrestling, writing, farming, magic and ventriloquism, CIA-funded experiments with hallucinatory drugs, and a notable cast of characters that would come to include Wallace Stegner, Larry McMurtry, Tom Wolfe, Neal Cassady, Timothy Leary, the Grateful Dead, and Hunter S. Thompson. Based on meticulous research and many interviews with friends and family, Rick Dodgson s biography documents Kesey s early life, from his time growing up in Oregon through his college years, his first drug experiences, and the writing of his most famous books. While a graduate student in creative writing at Stanford University in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Kesey worked the night shift at the Menlo Park Veterans Administration hospital, where he earned extra money taking LSD and other psychedelic drugs for medical studies. Soon he and his bohemian crowd of friends were using the same substances to conduct their own experiments, exploring the frontiers of their minds and testing the boundaries of their society. With the success of One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest, Kesey moved to La Honda, California, in the foothills of San Mateo County, creating a scene that Hunter S. Thompson remembered as the world capital of madness. There, Kesey and his growing band of Merry Prankster friends began hosting psychedelic parties and living a hippie lifestyle before anyone knew what that meant. Tom Wolfe s book The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test mythologized Kesey s adventures in the 1960s. Illustrated with rarely seen photographs, It s All a Kind of Magic depicts a precocious young man brimming with self-confidence and ambition who through talent, instinct, and fearless spectacle made his life into a performance, a wild magic act that electrified American and world culture. Rick Dodgson has pored over Kesey s published and unpublished writings, interviews, and historical records to write a colorful biography of this charismatic American character. The resulting portrayal challenges assumptions about Kesey s place in the counterculture. Journal of American History Dodgson s painstaking research unearths hidden gems of Kesey s life that marked him as a fascinating figure. H-Net"

Описание: The French writer Francois Mauriac once predicted that when de Gaulle will be here no longer, he will still be here. This insight has proved prophetic. In contemporary France, Charles de Gaulle has become a figure of legend, consistently acclaimed as the nation's pre-eminent historical figure. Central to this popularity is the recognition of his pivotal role as the founder, and then the leader, of the Resistance movement during the Second World War. Once might be tempted to conclude that it is the man who became mythical, not the institutions he created. But here, the paradoxes abound. For one thing, his personal popularity sits oddly with his social origins and professional background. Neither the nobility, nor the Catholic Church, nor the Army is particularly well-regarded in France today: in their different ways, they all symbolize antiquated traditions and values. So why, then, do the French nonetheless identify with, celebrate, and even revere this austere

Описание: The authors of this volume consult Chinese and Western archival materials to examine the Chinese War of Resistance against the Japanese in the Shanghai
area. They argue that the war in China was a nationalistic endeavour carried out without an effective national leadership. Wartime Chinese activities in Shanghai drew upon social
networks rather than ideological positions and these activities cut across lines of military and political divisions.
Instead of the stark contrast between heroic resistance and
ul collaboration, wartime experience in the city is more aptly summed up in terms of bloody struggles between those committed to normalcy in everyday life and those determined to bring
about its disruption through terrorist violence and economic control. The volume offers an evaluation of the strategic significance of the Shanghai economy in the Pacific War. It also
draws attention to the feminisation of urban public discourse against the backdrop of intensified violence.
The essays capture the last moments of European settlements in
Shanghai under Japanese occupation.This is the first serious scholarly endeavour to examine the Sino-Japanese War from a regional as well as international perspective.

Описание: In recent years the study of medieval courts has become a flourishing field. The courts of kings and popes, or of the Burgundian dukes, have usually attracted most attention. This book offers by contrast a wide-ranging study of a little-known, medium-sized court - that of Guelders in the Low Countries. Guelders offers an excellent vantage point for the study of European late medieval court culture. It was surrounded by the vast territories of the dukes of Burgundy, and it felt the growing power of the Valois dukes, yet the duchy managed to remain independent until 1473. Rich archival sources - including a long and virtually unbroken series of ducal accounts - reveal much about the rise of territorial or ‘proto-national’ awareness and about the role of the court in this process. The book also conveys the striking cultural and political richness of the court, poised between French and German spheres of influence.
