The Complete Unreliable Memoirs features all five volumes of Clive James's memoirs in one ebook omnibus. Including Unreliable Memoirs, Falling Towards England, May Week was in June, North Face of Soho and The Blaze of Obscurity. Unreliable Memoirs: In the first instalment of Clive James’s memoirs, we meet the young Clive, dressed in short trousers, and wrestling with the demands of school, various relatives and the occasional snake, in the suburbs of post-war Sydney. His adventures are hilarious, his recounting of them even more so, in this – the book that started it all . . . Falling Towards England: When we last met our hero in Unreliable Memoirs, he had set sail from Sydney Harbour bound for London, fame and fortune. Having arrived, he finds fame and fortune initially difficult to achieve. May Week was in June: In ‘Unreliable Memoirs III’, Clive details his time at Cambridge, including film reviewing, writing poetry, falling in love (often), and marrying (once) during May Week – which was not only in June but also two weeks long . . . North Face of Soho: Taking us from Fleet Street to Clive James on TV, from Russian department stores to Paris fashion shows — via fatherhood, some killer bees, and a satire starring Anne Robinson as Mrs Thatcher — North Face of Soho is the larger-than-life story of a life lived to the full. The Blaze of Obscurity: Perhaps his most brilliant book yet, The Blaze of Obscurity tells the inside story of his years in television, it shows Clive James on top form – both then and now.

Es war einmal in Colonel Pringles, jenem mythischen Städtchen César Airas: Dort lebte eine Näherin ohne Geschmack, aber von unendlicher Fingerfertigkeit. Wie viele andere Frauen in Pringles hatte sie einen einzigen Sohn. Eines Tages glaubt sie ihn entführt und nach Patagonien verschleppt. Sie rafft das Brautkleid zusammen, das sie noch schnell für die örtliche Kunstlehrerin nähen soll, springt in ein Taxi und folgt ihrem Sohn in wilder Jagd. Als ihr Mann davon erfährt, entschließt er sich, ihr zu folgen, und die Katastrophe nimmt ihren Lauf. Unterwegs verliebt sich ein Wirbelwind in die Näherin und offenbart sich ihr irgendwo am Ende der Welt. Er verspricht ihr, (fast) all ihre Wünsche zu erfüllen. Eine rasante Novelle im unvergleichlichen Stil des großen argentinischen Autors.

The Sixties

From Memory to History

This collection of original essays represents some of the most exciting ways in which historians are beginning to paint the 1960s onto the larger canvas of American history. While the first literature about this turbulent period was written largely by participants, many of the contributors to this volume are young scholars who came of age intellectually in the 1970s and 1980s and thus write from fresh perspectives. The essayists ask fundamental questions about how much America really changed in the 1960s and why certain changes took place. In separate chapters, they explore how the great issues of the decade--the war in Vietnam, race relations, youth culture, the status of women, the public role of private enterprise--were shaped by evolutions in the nature of cultural authority and political legitimacy. They argue that the whirlwind of events and problems we call the Sixties can only be understood in the context of the larger history of post-World War II America.

Collins "The American State and the Vietnam War: A Genealogy of Power," by Mary Sheila McMahon "And That's the Way It Was: The Vietnam War on the Network Nightly News," by Chester J.

The poet William Butler Yeats wrote Things fall apart; the center cannot hold. America in the early decades of the 21st century has become a living hell. There is massive unemployment, uncontrolled immigration, along with overseas war and occupation without end of any land with crude petroleum. Total corruption in a politically correct police state, the legalized murder of the elderly, and the loss of the social safety net have created intolerable desolation and made life for everyday people a nightmare. Finally, Americans can take no more, and in the Pacific Northwest they revolt. Led by embittered Iraq veterans, ex-convicts, teenagers, and blue-collar family men and women driven to desperation, in Portland and along Oregons northern coast, they join The Brigade.
