Bootleg : murder, moonshine, and the lawless years of prohibition by Karen Blumenthal( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,770 libraries worldwide
For more than a decade starting in 1920, millions of regular Americans ignored the law of the land. Parents became bootleggers, kids smuggled illegal alcohol, and outlaws became celebrities. It wasn't supposed to be that way, of course. When Congress passed the Eighteenth Amendment, prohibiting the sale and manufacture of alcohol in the United States, supporters believed it would create a better, stronger nation. Instead it began an era of lawlessness, when famous gangsters like Al Capone rose to fame, and many reconsidered their concept of right and wrong. This is the story of those years in American history--the story of prohibition

His Thompson submachine gun could deliver a hundred bullets in a matter of seconds, but didn't find a market in the U.S. military. Instead, the Tommy gun became the weapon of choice for a generation of bootleggers and bank-robbing outlaws, and became a deadly American icon. Blumenthal tells the history of this famous and deadly weapon
Grande expectations : a year in the life of Starbucks' stock by Karen Blumenthal( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 642 libraries worldwide
Business journalist Blumenthal, like most people, is mystified by the stock market. Just why is it, she wonders, that seemingly good news can send a stock plummeting and bad news can send it skyrocketing again? Here she shows how money is made and lost, by following one of America's hottest growth stocks, Starbucks, through a year of rapid store openings, fancy new products, and clever promotions, revealing how the many players--big and small investors, company management, analysts, and the media--propel its shares up and down. Blumenthal pulls back the curtain on the stock market to expose its quirks and inner workings, from the power of a penny of earnings and the unexpected impact of a stock split to the image-enhancing effects of a brand of bottled water
