Billy Lynn's long halftime walk by Ben Fountain( Book )

71 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 3,503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A ferocious firefight with Iraqi insurgents -- three minutes and forty-three seconds of intense warfare caught on tape by an embedded Fox News crew -- has transformed the eight surviving men of Bravo Squad into America's most sought-after heroes. Now they're on a media-intensive nationwide tour to reinvigorate support for the war. On this rainy Thanksgiving Day, the Bravos are guests of the Dallas Cowboys, slated to be part of the halftime show alongside Destiny's Child. Among the Bravos is Specialist Billy Lynn. Surrounded by patriots sporting flag pins on their lapels and Support Our Troops bumper stickers, he is thrust into the company of the Cowboys' owner and his coterie of wealthy colleagues; a born-again Cowboys cheerleader; a veteran Hollywood producer; and supersized players eager for a vicarious taste of war. Over the course of this day, Billy will drink and brawl, yearn for home and mourn those missing, face a heart-wrenching decision, and discover pure love and a bitter wisdom far beyond his years

Beautiful country burn again : democracy, rebellion, and revolution by Ben Fountain( Book )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twice before in its history, the United States has been faced with a crisis so severe it was forced to reinvent itself in order to survive: first, the struggle over slavery, culminating in the Civil War, and the second, the Great Depression, which led to President Roosevelt's New Deal and the establishment of America as a social-democratic state. In a sequence of essays that excavate the past while laying bare the political upheaval of 2016, Ben Fountain argues that the United States may be facing a third existential crisis, one that will require a 'burning' of the old order as America attempts to remake itself" --

Beautiful country burn again : democracy, rebellion, and revolution by Ben Fountain( Recording )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a sweeping work of reportage set over the course of 2016, New York Times bestselling author Ben Fountain recounts a surreal year of politics and an exploration of the third American existential crisis. Twice before in its history, the United States has been faced with a crisis so severe it was forced to reinvent itself in order to survive: first, the struggle over slavery, culminating in the Civil War, and the second, the Great Depression, which led to President Roosevelt's New Deal and the establishment of America as a social-democratic state. In a sequence of essays that excavate the past while laying bare the political upheaval of 2016, Ben Fountain argues that the United States may be facing a third existential crisis, one that will require a "burning" of the old order as America attempts to remake itself. Beautiful Country Burn Again narrates a shocking year in American politics, moving from the early days of the Iowa Caucus to the crystallizing moments of the Democratic and Republican national conventions, and culminating in the aftershocks of the weeks following election night. Along the way, Fountain probes deeply into history, illuminating the forces and watershed moments of the past that mirror and precipitated the present, from the hollowed-out notion of the American Dream, to Richard Nixon's southern strategy, to our weaponized new conception of American exceptionalism, to the cult of celebrity that gave rise to Donald Trump. In an urgent and deeply incisive voice, Ben Fountain has fused history and the present day to paint a startling portrait of the state of our nation. Beautiful Country Burn Again is a searing indictment of how we came to this point, and where we may be headed."--Provided by publisher

Papers from the 1990 Canada-U.S. Legal Studies Centre symposium on Subsidies Under the FTA, vol. III : manufacturing and regional studies by Ben Fountain( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The papers and notes that make up this set of Occasional Papers focus on the nature and effects of subsidies granted by US and Canadian governments to domestic producers. The papers originated as symposium presentations at the Canada-United States Legal Studies Centre, University of Buffalo Law School, in the spring of 1990. The purpose of the symposium, and of these papers, is to come to some understanding of the issues involved as the two countries attempt to decide what form of domestic subsidies are to be allowed in the two-year-old free trade area of Canada and the United States. On the theme of subsidies in manufacturing 3 papers cover myths and realities, U.S. countervailing duty law, and FTA negotiations around these subsidies. Two papers dealing with regional development subsidies discuss how these relate to Canada-U.S. trade negotiations and the case of western New York
