Design of dissent by Milton Glaser( Book )

28 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 1,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dissent is an essential part of keeping democratic societies healthy; for citizens to voice our opinion is not only our privilege but our responsibility. Without this dialogue, the backbone of what we have fought so desperately for could easily crumble. Over the past decades, the number of democratic societies has increased around the globe, and there is a heightened awareness of increasing conflicts and problems that affect our everyday lives. With the Middle East conflict, the war on terrorism, and financial and environmental crises, people's sense of safety, power, and representation has diminished in part because they feel they have no voice. Designers, however, use their skills to communicate their dissent, even more so now with the World Wide Web and the increasing ease of distributing posters and other printed materials. This book examines graphic work focusing on social and political concerns from around the globe.--From publisher description

Tarzan alive : a definitive biography of Lord Greystoke : Apoligia pro vita Tarzani Simiarum by Philip José Farmer( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tarzan Alive offers the first chronological account of Tarzan's life, narrated in careful detail garnered from Burroughs's stories and other sources. From the ill-fated voyage that led to Greystoke's birth on the isolated African coast to his final adventures as a group captain in the RAF during World War II, Farmer constructs a comprehensive and authoritative account. Farmer's assertion that Tarzan was a real person has led him to craft a biography as well researched and compelling as that of any character from conventional history. This definitive Bison Books edition also includes Farmer's "Exclusive Interview with Lord Greystoke" as well as "Extracts from the Memoirs of 'Lord Greystoke' " first anthologized in Mother Was a Lovely Beast."--Jacket
When they burned the White House by Andrew Tully( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At 9:45 p.m. on August 24, 1814, the British set fire to the White House and, within an hour, the Capitol had been gutted. How could this happen? The war was not widely supported and the defense of Washington had been placed in the hands of two inept and ill-appointed leaders{u2015}Secretary of War Armstrong and Brigadier General Winder{u2015}whose?thimble headed stupidity? meant that the arriving British troops met little resistance. There were heroes in the mix: the U.S. First Lady, Dolley Madison, stayed until the last moment and, with the help of her servants, managed to save important books, a portrait of George Washington, and a copy of the Declaration of Independence. Ironically, the burning of the White House had a galvanizing effect on the divided views of the young country.?Overnight, the nation united in its determination to pursue this unpopular war with new vigor, to take its revenge on a power which had shamed an independent people by burning its capital.? President Madison had, at last, the support he needed. Award winning author and newspaperman, Andrew Tully, has added flesh to the bones of this true story of an often over-looked and confusing period of U.S. history. Well-researched and historically accurate, When They Burned the White House is a fascinating read for U.S. history buffs eager for more information about the War of 1812 and all readers interested in historical drama. Illustrated throughout by celebrated graphic designer Milton Glaser.?Well told ... attractive ... lively????????Allen Drury, author of Advise and Content and A Shade of Difference

Some people by Harold Nicolson( Book )

1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the face of it, bracketing Harold Nicolson and Vladimir Nabokov seems unexpected but the latter paid a remarkable tribute to Some People. When speaking to Harold Nicolson's son, Nigel, he confessed that all his life he had been fighting against the influence of Some People.' The style of that book is like a drug', he said. The critic and biographer, Stacy Schiff, has also admitted 'Some People has exerted more influence than I care to admit. I would reread it any day of the week.' Ever since first publication in 1927 it has been attracting this sort of praise. It is an unusual book comprising nine chapters each one being a sort of character sketch: Miss Plimsoll; J.D. Marstock; Lambert Orme; The Marquis de Chaumont; Jeanne de Henaut; Titty; Professor Malone; Arketall; Miriam Codd. The author himself writes, a little disingenuously, 'Many of the following sketches are purely imaginary. Such truths as they may contain are only half-truths.' In fact, it would be difficult to point to one, other than Miriam Codd, that was 'purely imaginary', some were composite portraits, others skilful amalgams of divers traits from a variety of different people, and others much more overtly drawn from one real-life figure, for example Lambert Orme clearly represents Ronald Firbank, and Arketall Lord Curzon's bibulous valet. There is nothing else quite like Some People and in its own playful way is beyond category. To be tedious for a moment, we have to call it fiction but are then immediately thrown by Virginia Woolf's deft summary, 'He lies in wait for his own absurdities as artfully as theirs. Indeed by the end of the book we realize that the figure which has been most completely and most subtly displayed is that of the author ... It is thus, he would seem to say, in the mirrors of our friends that we chiefly live.' Fiction? Biography? Autobiography? - the category doesn't matter, the result is spellbinding however you choose to read it
