In 1905 President Teddy Roosevelt dispatched Secretary of War William Howard Taft on the largest U.S. diplomatic mission in history to Hawaii, Japan, the Philippines, China, and Korea. Roosevelt's glamorous twenty-one year old daughter Alice served as mistress of the cruise, which included senators and congressmen. On this trip, Taft concluded secret agreements in Roosevelt's name. In 2005, a century later, James Bradley traveled in the wake of Roosevelt's mission and discovered what had transpired in Honolulu, Tokyo, Manila, Beijing and Seoul. In 1905, Roosevelt was bully-confident and made secret agreements that he though would secure America's westward push into the Pacific. Instead, he lit the long fuse on the Asian firecrackers that would singe America's hands for a century

In this unforgettable chronicle of perhaps the most famous moment in American military history, James Bradley has captured the glory, the triumph, the heartbreak, and the legacy of the six men who raised the flag at Iwo Jima. Here is the true story behind the immortal photograph that has come to symbolize the courage and indomitable will of America. In February 1945, American Marines plunged into the surf at Iwo Jima--and into history. Through a hail of machine-gun and mortar fire that left the beaches strewn with comrades, they battled to the island's highest peak. And after climbing through a landscape of hell itself, they raised a flag. Now the son of one of the flag raisers has written a powerful account of six very different young men who came together in a moment that will live forever. To his family, John Bradley never spoke of the photograph or the war. But after his death at age seventy, his family discovered closed boxes of letters and photos

In his books, James Bradley has exposed the hidden truths behind America's engagement in Asia. Now comes his most engrossing work yet. Beginning in the 1850s, Bradley introduces us to the prominent Americans who made their fortunes in the China opium trade. As they--good Christians all--profitably addicted millions, American missionaries arrived, promising salvation for those who adopted Western ways. And that was just the beginning. From drug dealer Warren Delano to his grandson Franklin Delano Roosevelt, from the port of Hong Kong to the towers of Princeton University, from the era of Appomattox to the age of the A-Bomb, The China Mirage explores a difficult century that defines US-Chinese relations to this day

1945: Ein Foto fasziniert die kriegsmüde amerikanische Öffentlichkeit: Sechs Soldaten hissen die US-Fahne auf einer kleinen Insel vor Japan. Die Fahnenhisser werden nach Hause geschickt, um sich als Helden feiern zu lassen und Kriegsanleihen verkaufen, mit denen der Krieg finanziert werden soll. Sie spielen ihre Rolle in der PR-Maschinerie perfekt, doch innerlich empfinden sie anders - sie spüren, dass ein Teil ihrer Seele auf dem schwarzen Sand von Iwo Jima zurückgeblieben ist zusammen mit ihren gefallenen Freunden und Kameraden. Der zweifache Oscar®-Preisträger Clint Eastwood inszenierte eine mitreißende Darstellung des Krieges, wie er von den Soldaten vor Ort erlebt und von den Daheimgebliebenen aus der Ferne wahrgenommen wird. Eine sehr persönliche Geschichte von Freundschaft, Mut, Überlebenswillen und Opferbereitschaft vor dem gewaltigen, infernalischen Panorama der Schlacht um Iwo Jima
