Greenback : the almighty dollar and the invention of America by Jason Goodwin( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and German and held by 1,269 libraries worldwide
Money has always been at the heart of the American experience. Paper money, invented in Boston in 1698, was a classic of American ingenuity-and American disregard for authority and tradition. Jason Goodwin has written a biography of the dollar, giving us the story of its astonishing career through the wilds of American history. Greenback looks at the dollar over the years as a form of art, a kind of advertising, a reflection of American attitudes, and a builder of empires. The author shows us how the dollar rolled out the frontier and peopled the Plains, how it erected the great cities, and how it expressed the urges of democracy and opportunity. And, above all, Goodwin introduces us to the people who championed--or ambushed--the dollar over the years: presidents, artists, pioneers, and frontiersmen bankers, shady and upright safecrackers, crooks, and dreamers of every stripe. It's a vast and colorful cast of characters who all agreed on one thing: getting the money right was the key to unlocking liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Greenback delves into folklore and the development of printing, investigates wildcats and counterfeiters, explains why a buck is a buck and how Dixie got its name. Greenback brings together an array of quirky detail and surprising--often hilarious--anecdote to tell the story of America through its best-beloved product

"Join Investigator Yashim for a final exotic escapade in this rich Edgar Award-winning series In four previous novels, Jason Goodwin's Inspector Yashim, the eunuch detective, has led us through stylish, suspenseful, and colorful mysteries in the Istanbul of the Ottoman Empire. Now, in The Baklava Club, Yashim returns for his final adventure--and his most thrilling yet. Three naive Italian liberals, exiled in Istanbul, have bungled their instructions to kill a Polish prince--instead, they've kidnapped him and absconded to an unused farmhouse. Little do they realize that their revolutionary cell has been penetrated by their enemies, who are passing along false orders under the code name La Piuma, the Feather. It falls to Yashim to unravel all this--he's convinced that the prince is alive and that the Italians have hidden him somewhere. But there are just a few problems: He has no idea who La Piuma is, and he's in no mood to put up a fight--he's fallen in love! As he draws closer to the farmhouse and to the true identity of La Piuma, what Yashim discovers leaves him shocked and in the most dangerous situation of his career. Goodwin has an eye for detail like no other, and in The Baklava Club he conjures Istanbul in all its glorious exoticism. This is a breathtaking, extraordinary conclusion to one of the most beloved series in mystery fiction, and its ending will leave you truly astonished"--

Otis : giving rise to the modern city by Jason Goodwin( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 408 libraries worldwide
"Without it there would be no such thing as a city skyline, or even a city as we know it. Yet Elisha Graves Otis invented the safe elevator almost by accident. He wanted simply to build a machine that would hoist a bedding factory's equipment safely. He built it, all right - and in doing so made possible the construction of the skyscraper and laid the technical foundation for dynamic urban centers around the world." "In Otis: Giving Rise to the Modern City, Jason Goodwin recounts the story of the product and the business that Elisha Otis created. It is a peculiarly American tale of continuous growth and reinvention that continues even today at an ever-faster pace. Founded in 1853 in a ramshackle foundry on the Hudson River in Yonkers, New York, the company survived wars and depressions, bested competitors, and never took its eye off technological innovation. It transformed itself from a gritty manufacturer into an inventive engineering power and, ultimately, a sophisticated global enterprise."--Jacket
