The third coast when Chicago built the American dream by Tom Dyja( Recording )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Though today it can seem as if all American culture comes out of New York and Los Angeles, much of what defined the nation as it grew into a superpower was produced in Chicago. Before air travel overtook trains, nearly every coast-to-coast journey included a stop there, and this flow of people and commodities made it America's central clearinghouse, laboratory, and factory. Between the end of World War II and 1960, Mies van der Rohe's glass and steel architecture became the face of corporate America, Ray Kroc's McDonald's changed how people eat, Hugh Hefner unveiled Playboy, and the Chess brothers supercharged rock and roll with Chuck Berry. At the University of Chicago, the atom was split and Western civilization was packaged into the Great Books. In luminous prose, Chicago native Thomas Dyja re-creates the story of the city in its postwar prime and explains its profound impact on modern America

As the twenty-first century enters its second decade, foreign wars, the recession, and a caustic political environment are taking their toll on Americans. But the party hasn't ended for Aidan Cole and his friends, journalists and bloggers at the intersection of media and celebrity whose frenetic talk of scoops, sexual adventures, and trendy restaurants continues unabated. Then a bomb rips through a midtown office tower. Middle Eastern terrorists are suspected. But four days later, Aidan receives an anonymous e-mail containing the photograph of an attractive young white woman, along with the message, "This is Paige Roderick. She's the one responsible." So begins a journey into the dark soul of modern America - from a back-to-the-land community to a Weather Underground-like bomb factory; from Fishers Island, getaway of the wealthy elite, to the hip lofts of Manhattan's Meatpacking District
On a farther shore the life and legacy of Rachel Carson by William Souder( Recording )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rachel Carson, founder of the modern environmental movement, began work on her seminal book Silent Spring in the late 1950s, when a dizzying array of synthetic pesticides had come into use. Leading this chemical onslaught was the insecticide DDT. Effective against crop pests as well as insects that transmitted human diseases such as typhus and malaria, DDT had at first appeared safe. But as its use expanded, alarming reports surfaced of collateral damage to fish, birds, and other wildlife. Silent Spring was a chilling indictment of DDT and its effects, and it shocked the public and forced the government to take action--despite a withering attack on Carson from the chemicals industry. The book awakened the world to the heedless contamination of the environment and eventually led to the establishment of the Environmental Protection Agency and to the banning of DDT and a host of related pesticides
Hope's boy by Andrew Bridge( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Andrew Bridge was seven years old, he and his mother slid deeper and deeper into poverty, until they were reduced to scavenging for food in trash bins. Welfare officials did little more than threaten to take Andrew away, until a social worker arrived with a police escort and did just that, while his mother screamed on the sidewalk. This began Andrew's descent into the foster care system - 'care' being a terrible irony, as he received almost none for the next eleven years

Bad dog a love story by Martin Kihn( )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Meet Hola. She's a nightmare, but it's not her fault if she tackles strangers and chews on furniture, or if she runs after buses and fried chicken containers and drug dealers. No one ever told her not to. Worse yet, she scares her family. Hola may be the most beautiful Bernese mountain dog in the world, but she's never been trained--at least, not by anyone who knew what he was doing. Hola's supposed master, Marty, is a high-functioning alcoholic. A TV writer turned management consultant, Marty's in debt and out of shape; he's about to lose his job, and one day he emerges from a haze of peach-flavored vodka to find he's on the verge of losing his wife, Gloria, too, if he can't get his life--and his dog--under control. Desperately trying to save his marriage, Marty throws himself headlong into the world of competitive dog training. Unfortunately, he knows even less than Hola, the only dog ever to be expelled from her puppy preschool twice. Somehow, together, they need to get through the American Kennel Club's rigorous Canine Good Citizen test. Of course, Hola first needs to learn how to sit. It won't be easy. It certainly won't be pretty. But maybe, just maybe, there will be cheesecake
