Best of enemies by Gore Vidal( visu )
13 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 670 libraries worldwide
In the summer of 1968 television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. William F. Buckley Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement. A Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis, Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, Vidal and Buckley believed each other's political ideologies were dangerous for America. Like rounds in a heavyweight battle, they pummeled out policy and personal insult--their explosive exchanges devolving into vitrolic name-calling. Live an unscripted, they kept viewers riveted. Ratings for ABC News skyrocketed, and a new era in public discourse was born

Lost Delta found : rediscovering the Fisk University-Library of Congress Coahoma County study, 1941-1942 by John W Work( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 471 libraries worldwide
When the Alan Lomax text "The Land Where the Blues Began" was published in 1993, the project study of 1941 and 1942 visits to the Mississippi Delta contained inaccuracies and ignored social issues. Here Robert Gordon uncovers the work of Fisk University's African American scholars who accompanied him: composer and musicologist John W. Work, sociologist Lewis Wade Jones, and graduate student Samuel C. Adams, Jr. These three men captured interviews, notes, and musical transcriptions that reveal an important alternative perspective on Lomax's work in the Delta region. Their work unveils place, religion, social justice issues, and a way of life that is woven into a rich musical heritage
It came from Memphis by Robert Gordon( Book )
15 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 399 libraries worldwide
Unlike previous books about Memphis, this one does not focus on Elvis Presley, Al Green, Sun and Stax studios. Instead, It Came from Memphis prefers the shadows cast by these institutions, focusing on artists like Jim Dickinson and Alex Chilton, and bands like Mud Boy and the Neutrons, the Mar-Keys, and Big Star. The result is an anecdotal, digressive, thoroughly informative and entertaining history of rock and roll's hometown
