The Lives Of Jack London 2018

The Lives Of Jack London 2018


Category: Books
Description: The many lives of the American literary legend whose works include the classic Call of the Wild. I would rather be a superb meteor, and that each of my atoms shines with a magnificent brilliance, rather than a sleeping planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I will not waste my life trying to prolong my life. I want to burn all my time. - Jack London. Jack London (1876-1916), the author of such classics as Call of the Wild, White Fang and Martin Eden, was the last great voice of the American frontier and a master of the adventure novel. The Lives of Jack London was published first in France as Les vies de Jack London to coincide with the release of the film documentary of the same name in 2016, the centenary of his death. This book's title is apt, for London's adventures and achievements far exceeded his short life. Shared here are stories of a life of magnificent brilliance - riding the rails, pirating oysters, shovelling coal and joining the Gold Rush, sailing the world, immersing himself in island societies, joyous family life, a lifelong 1,000 words a day habit and ultimately tragedy. This engrossing and beautifully illustrated account features 400 period photographs, press clippings and letters, the majority of them never before published: The Golden Gate 1876-1893 Childhood and youth in the San Francisco Bay Area; oyster pirating; seal hunting expeditions in the Bering Strait; The Savage Face of Capitalism 1893-1897 Works at a cannery factory, cross-country protest march with unemployed workers; life as a hobo; participates in Socialist activism; resolves to educate himself; The Call of the Great North 1897-1902 Prospecting for gold in Alaska and the Yukon; returns home to write; first publication of his short stories; Celebrity 1902-1904 Newfound social status; marriage and birth of two daughters; newspaper journalist; The People of the Abyss and The Call of the Wild are published; purchases the Spray; War Correspondent 1904 Reporting in Korea during the Russo- Japanese War; The Valley of the Moon 1904-1906 Divorce, and second marriage; family life; writes White Fang, continues political activism; San Francisco Earthquake 1906-1907 Makes plans to sail around the world; eyewitness report of the earthquake; The Snark, Pacific Travels 1907-1908 San Francisco, Hawaii, the Marquesas Islands, Tahiti and Samoa; The Snark, Conflict in the Black Islands 1908 to 1909 Melanesia ( Fiji, New Hebrides, Solomon Islands). Conflict in the region, illness forces his return home; Return to California 1909-1911 Becomes a landowner; granddaughter dies; purchases the Roamer sailboat; builds Wolf House; moves to Glen Eden cottage; Close Calls 1911-1913 Personal disasters and heartbreaks, wife's miscarriage, loses Wolf House to fire, begins drinking heavily; Jack London Films 1913-1914 Works in Hollywood on film adaptations of his works; Vera Cruz 1914-1916 Reporting for William Randolph Hearst on the American military intervention in Mexico; articles supporting Washington, conflict with Socialist Party; Between Glen Eden and Hawaii 1914 to 1916 Heavy financial losses; health deteriorates; convalesces in Hawaii; discovers psychoanalysis and Jung; death at Glen Eden. Jack London lived his meteoric life during a time of tumultuous change in North America. The Lives of Jack London is an engrossing and beautifully illustrated retelling of the vibrant and ultimately tragic life of one of America's greatest writers.

Magnify Next To Wellington. General Sir George Murray
Next To Wellington. General Sir George Murray

Next To Wellington. General Sir George Murray


Category: Books
Description: It was inevitable that a young George Murray, born into a long established Perthshire family with both Jacobite and Hanoverian loyalties, would soon see action in the campaigns against Revolutionary France and Napoleon Bonaparte after obtaining his commission into 3rd Regiment of Foot Guards (the Scots Guards) in 1790. Murray served with distinction in the Low Countries, which were seen as essential to safeguarding Britain's trade links and in Ireland, where the constant threat of insurrection and invasion required a huge garrison. He accompanied General Abercromby to remove the French from Egypt, where Murray was in the first wave of the landing force at Aboukir, one of the great British military successes. Becoming one of the new ' Scientific' officers, Murray was the brains behind the plans to take a number of West Indian islands from the French, before settling into his career in the Quartermaster General's department. He made a name for himself in the controversial bombardment of Copenhagen in 1807, which resulted in the capture of the entire Danish fleet, the first operation in which Murray and Arthur Wellesley (later the Duke of Wellington) fought together. Sent to Sweden on a delicate diplomatic mission to negotiate with the unstable Swedish King, in support of General Sir John Moore, by now he had earned the confidence of the British Government, as well as his military superiors. On return from Sweden, Murray found himself sailing to Portugal and into the midst of a debacle, culminating in his drafting the highly contentious Convention of Cintra. He was becoming acutely aware of the personal weaknesses of the men who carried Britain's expectations on their shoulders, including Wellington, and recognised his potential role alongside them. Remaining in Portugal, and now serving again with Moore, he planned the advance into Spain, and the dispiriting, and brutal, retreat to Corunna, losing his good friends Moore and Anstruther in the last days of the campaign. A few weeks after his return to England in 1809 he was appointed Wellesley's QMG, again in the Peninsula, and would, from that moment, work closely (if not always in agreement) with Wellesley in the successful actions that followed, including Oporto, Talavera and Busaco. He was one of only an handful who knew of the building of the massive Lines of Torres Vedras. Frustrated by the attitude of Spanish and Portuguese allies, and the slowness of his promotion prospects, he returned home on leave in early 1812, perhaps with marriage in mind, and shortly thereafter resigned his position with Wellington's army, moving again to Ireland. Begged by Wellington to return, he played a major role in moving the army across Spain in 1813 and orchestrating the major battles that saw the French driven back over the Pyrenees. Under his leadership, the role of the QMG department expanded enormously, and Murray became Wellington's most trusted staff officer. Sent to Canada to take command there in the dying days of the War of 1812, and becoming, temporarily, Governor General, he again answered the Government's and Wellington's calls to return to face Napoleon after his escape from Elba, but arrived too late for Waterloo. For three years he was Chief of Staff to the multi-national force occupying France. There he had an affair with Lady Louisa Erskine (sister of Henry Paget, Wellington's cavalry commander who lost a leg at Waterloo), which was to lead to her divorce, an illegitimate daughter, marriage, and long lasting social difficulties for them both. Murray served as Governor of RMC Sandhurst and Commander in Chief in Ireland. Following his election as MP for Perthshire, Wellington appointed him Secretary of State for War and the Colonies in his Government, resulting in the Murray River and Perth, Western Australia being named in his honour. An unhappy period in his life, Murray persevered with his political career until appointed Master General of the Ordnance in Peel's administration, a post he held until his death in 1846. Based on primary sources, in particular Murray's own papers and letters, the book delves beneath the surface of many of the major military and political events of the time, and examines the very close military, political, and personal relationship that bound Murray and Wellington together, as, with demonstrable mutual loyalty and respect, they confronted enemies and opponents over a period of 40 years during an extraordinary period of British history.

The Making Of The President 2016

The Making Of The President 2016


Category: Books
Description: From Roger Stone, a New York Times bestselling author, longtime political adviser and friend to Donald Trump, and consummate Republican strategist, comes an in-depth examination of how Trump's campaign tapped into the national mood to deliver a stunning victory that few saw coming. In the early hours of November 9, 2016, one of the most contentious, polarizing, and vicious presidential races came to an abrupt and unexpected end when heavily favored presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton called Donald J. Trump to concede, shocking a nation that had, only hours before, given little credence to his chances. Donald Trump pulled the greatest upset in American political history despite a torrent of invective and dismissal of the mainstream media. Here is the first definitive explanation about how the silent majority shifted the election to Donald Trump in reliable Democratic Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, thus handing him the presidency. Stone, a long time Trump retainer and confidant, gives us the inside story of how Donald Trump almost single-handedly harnessed discontent among Forgotten Americans despite running a guerrilla-style grass roots campaign to compete with the smooth running and free-spending Clinton political machine. From the start, Trump's campaign was unlike any seen on the national stage-combative, maverick, and fearless. Trump's nomination was the hostile takeover of the Republican party and a resounding repudiation of the failed leadership of both parties whose policies have brought America to the brink of financial collapse as well as endangering our national security. Here Stone outlines how Donald Trump skillfully ran as the anti- Open Borders candidate as well as a supporter of American sovereignty, and how he used the Globalist trade deals like NAFTA to win over three of ten Bernie Sanders supporters. The veteran adviser to Nixon, Reagan, and Trump charts the rise of the alt-conservative media and the end of the mainstream media monopoly on voter impacting information dissemination. This is an insider's view that includes studying opposition research into Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton's crimes, and the struggle by the Republican establishment to stop Trump and how they underestimated him. Stone chronicles Trump's triumph in three debates where he skillfully lowered expectation levels but skewered Mrs. Clinton for the corruption of the Clinton Foundation, her mishandling of government email, and her incompetence as Secretary of State. Stone gives us the inside word on Julian Assange, Wikileaks, Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, Carlos Danger, Doug Band, Jeffery Epstein, and the efforts to hide the former first lady's infirmities and health problems. Stone dissects the phony narrative that Trump was in cahoots with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin or that the e-mails released by Wikileaks came from the Russians. The grizzled political veteran of ten Republican presidential campaigns from Richard Nixon to Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump explains how Trump's election has averted near certain war with Russia over Syria and the rejection of the neocon policies of the Obama/ Clinton Administration. The Making of the President 2016 reveals how Trump brilliantly picked at Hillary Clinton's weaknesses, particularly her reputation as a crooked insider, and ignited the passions of out-of-work white men and women from the rust belt and beyond, at a time when millions of Americans desperately wanted change. Stone also reveals how and why the mainstream media got it wrong, including how the polls were loaded and completely misunderstood who would vote. Stone's analysis is akin to Theodore H. White's seminal book The Making of the President 1960. It is both a sweeping analysis of the trends that elected Trump as well as the war stories of a hard-bitten political survivor who Donald Trump called one tough cookie. Other books by Roger Stone: The Man Who Killed Kennedy, a New York Times bestseller in which Roger Stone makes a compelling case that Lyndon Baines Johnson was the mastermind behind the murder of President John F. Kennedy. Stone maps out LBJ's motives for orchestrating the murder and uses fingerprint evidence and testimony to prove JFK was shot by a long-time LBJ hit man-not Lee Harvey Oswald. Nixon's Secrets gives the inside scoop on Nixon's rise and fall in Watergate. Stone charts Nixon's rise from election to Congress in 1946 to the White House in 1968 after his razor-thin loss to John Kennedy in 1960, his disastrous campaign for Governor of California in 1962 and the greatest comeback in American Presidential history. Jeb and the Bush Crime Family, in which Stone collaborates with Saint John Hunt to make this a no-holds-barred history of the Bush family. After detailing the vast litany of Jeb's misdeeds, Stone travels back to Samuel, Prescott, George H. W., and George W. Bush to weave an epic story of privilege, greed, corruption, drug profiteering, assassination, and lies. This exposition will have you asking, Why aren't these people in prison? The Clintons' War on Women, where Roger Stone and historian Robert Morrow uncover the explosive and ugly truths about Bill and Hillary's crimes and cover-ups. They reveal the details about their actions in Arkansas, Bill Clinton's scandalous time in the White House, who really ordered the deadly attack on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Hillary's federally-investigated tenure as secretary of state, their time at the corrupt Clinton Foundation, and Hillary's failed campaign for president.
