Travis McGee 16 The Dreadful Lemon Sky - First edition

2014, ISBN: 9780397010745

Paperback, Hardcover, ID: 828858168

Belknap Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts: 2011. Softcover. Brand new book. The man whom Indian nationalists perceived as the "George Washington of India" and who was President of the Indian National Congress in 1938-1939 is a legendary figure. Called Netaji ("leader") by his countrymen, Subhas Chandra Bose struggled all his life to liberate his people from British rule and, in pursuit of that goal, raised and led the Indian National Army against Allied Forces during World War II. His patriotism, as Gandhi asserted, was second to none, but his actions aroused controversy in India and condemnation in the West. Now, in a definitive biography of the revered Indian nationalist, Sugata Bose deftly explores a charismatic personality whose public and private life encapsulated the contradictions of world history in the first half of the twentieth century. He brilliantly evokes Netaji's formation in the intellectual milieu of Calcutta and Cambridge, probes his thoughts and relations during years of exile, and analyzes his ascent to the peak of nationalist politics. Amidst riveting accounts of imprisonment and travels, we glimpse the profundity of his struggle: to unite Hindu and Muslim, men and women, and diverse linguistic groups within a single independent Indian nation. Finally, an authoritative account of his untimely death in a plane crash will put to rest rumors about the fate of this "deathless hero." This epic of a life larger than its legend is both intimate, based on family archives, and global in significance. His Majesty's Opponent establishes Bose among the giants of Indian and world history. 68 halftones, 3 maps. Sugata Bose is Gardiner Professor of History at Harvard University. "His Majesty's Opponent offers a multifaceted portrait of Subhas Chandra Bose. It presents a captivating account of the life of an intellectual and a cosmopolitan, a revolutionary and a misled nationalist."ÑDavid Motadel, The Times Literary Supplement "This competent biography by Bose's great-nephew, a historian, is the best work to date to clarify some of his paradoxes. With unpublished material from family archives and public records, Sugata Bose supplies a fuller back-story of Netaji's predicaments. The book has illuminated my understanding of a controversial and charismatic Indian militarist who remains inspirational to many in India, despite his questionable status in the global politics of the period."ÑKrishna Dutty, The Independent "[Bose] presents an admirably restrained account of this flawed patriot. Making good use of the family archives, he reaches out to the widest possible audience with a compelling narrative that sacrifices none of its author's academic credentials."ÑJohn Keay, Literary Review "What, I believe, is and will remain the definitive biography of Subhas BoseÉ In terms of sheer craftsmanship and mastery over material, this is an achievement that will evoke the admiration and envy of any historian-biographer."ÑRudrangshu Mukherjee, The Telegraph "Those wishing to learn about the life and times of Netaji will finish the book with their curiosity deeply satisfied."ÑRamesh Thakur, The Australian "It is not easy to be objective about a national icon like Subhas Bose, especially when he happens to be the grand-uncle of the biographer. But Sugata Bose has achieved that critical distanceÉ This biography reveals a lot more about Subhas Bose's intimate life than did the stuffy portrayals in some earlier accounts."ÑSabyasachi Bhattacharya, Biblio "[Bose's] impeccable scholarship is in full view, as indeed is his awed regard for his grand-uncle. The result is a fine biography of a man who is still regarded with some ambivalence in India, not the least because so little is known about him. This book ought to fill that gap."ÑT.C.A. Srinivasa-Raghavan, Business Line "[A] fine, nuanced bookÉ His Majesty's Opponent is a template biography. It is arrestingly written, provides personal details the author is obviously privy toÑbeing the son of Netaji's favorite nephew, Sisir. It is sympathetic but dispassionate and evokes in the reader just the right mix of emotion and regret that Bose's brilliant but truncated life deserves."ÑAshok Malik, The Hindustan Times "This book is very fascinatingÑnot just for those who love history and politics, but for anyone who loves to read an illustrious story about a famous person."ÑVisi Tilak, Indian American "[A] magisterial biographyÉ [Bose] does a splendid jobÉ Bose etches a vivid portrait of Netaji as a protean nationalist of fierce integrity and convictionÉ [He] displays considerable acuity in examining the icon's complex love-hate relationship with Gandhi."ÑSoutik Biswas, LiveMint.com "Here is a biography of one of the most intriguing and powerful men in 20th century India, Subhas Chandra Bose, written with energy and without sacrificing the historical detailsÉ In parts the book reads like a thriller, especially when dealing with Netaji's daring escapes from British clutches. There is a spirited account of a secret submarine escape, and riveting material on Netaji's complex political strategies. But above everything else, the book offers an intimate portrait of Netaji not only as a revolutionary leader but also a loving husband, a man of letters, and an untiring believer in communal amity."ÑArthur J. Pais, Rediff.com "Sugata Bose's book has filled a long-standing gap for an authentic biography of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose."ÑChhanda Chatterjee, The Statesman "[This] new biography of Indian nationalist hero Subhas Chandra Bose could help resuscitate the leader's troubled reputation outside of IndiaÉ His Majesty's Opponent aims to be the definitive biography of a man who, as the author writes, devoted 'his life to ensuring the sun did finally set on the British Empire.'É Bose's life is an action-packed thriller tailor-made for biographical treatment."ÑTom Wright, The Wall Street Journal blog "[A] lucid and meticulous new biography."ÑSudip Bose, Bookforum "Sugata Bose (Subhas's great-nephew) has produced a full-scale biography of this interesting figure, filling in details on his ideas, the quarrel with Gandhi that pushed him out of mainstream Indian politics, and his quest for German support."ÑR. A. Callahan, Choice "Bose, grand nephew of Subhas Chandra, known as Netaji (respected leader), has written an enthralling account of Netaji's life, detailing his lifelong struggle against British rule (he was imprisoned without a trial at a young age), exile in Europe, and political successesÉ This biography of a nationalist leader of the same stature as Mohandas Gandhi should be readÉby all who seek a complete picture of India's freedom struggle."ÑRavi Shenoy, Library Journal "This remarkable book places Subhas Chandra Bose fully in the context of Indian and world history. It should be read by everyone interested in the end of the British Empire."ÑArjun Appadurai, New York University "Larger than life, more profoundly intriguing than the myths that surround him, Subhas Chandra Bose was India's greatest 'lost' leader. In a remarkable narrative that pairs political passion with historical precision, Sugata Bose has beautifully explored the character and charisma of the man, while providing an elegant and incisive account of one of the most important phases of the struggle for Indian independence."ÑHomi K. Bhabha, author of The Location of Culture "This is a definitive biography of Subhas Chandra Bose, written by the person most qualified to do so. It is an epic tale, told in an epic manner."ÑTim Harper, author of Forgotten Wars: Freedom and Revolution in Southeast Asia "Subhas Chandra Bose was perhaps the most enigmatic of the great Indian leaders fighting for independence in the twentieth century. This wonderful book makes a major contribution to the understanding of the political, social and moral commitments of Netaji, the great leader, as he was called by his contemporaries."ÑAmartya Sen, author of The Idea of Justice, Belknap Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts: 2011, Publisher: Orion Publishing Group | Utg. 2012 | | 332 p. | | This book is brand new. | Language: Engelska --- Information regarding the book: The Mistborn trilogy has become a firm favourite with fantasy fans the world over. The imagination that Sanderson brought to the series and his skill at marshalling epic storylines and dramatic action, his ability to create vivid characters made him a natural choice to complete Robert Jordan's epic wheel of time sequence. But with Mistborn, his standalone fantasies and his new series, The Stormlight Archive, Sanderson has shown his bountiful talents in his own fiction. Now he returns to the series that made his name with a new story set years after the events of Hero of Ages. In a world recovering only slowly from evil, a world where allomancers wield immense power through their ability to unleash the magic bound up in common metals someone who can burn metals that no-one has burned before can tip the balance...Sanderson has the knack of giving the epic fantasy reader exactly what they want. This ability has thrown him to the forefront of the genre and the dramatic story within The Alloy of Law shows off this skill to its very best. | We have this book in our store house - please allow for a couple of extra days for delivery., Milwaukie, OR, U.S.A.: Dark Horse Books. 2014.

SYNOPSIS: That waterfront knight-errant Travis McGee is never one to turn away an old friend in need - especially if that old friend is young, lovely, and looks like she hasn't slept for three days. Her name is Carrie Milligan, and at 3 a.m. she turns up on McGee's houseboat with an ordinary box filled with an extraordinary amount of cash - $104,200, to be exact - in old bills all tied up in neat little bundles. She just wants McGee to hold the cash in safekeeping until she can pick it up, no questions asked, and McGee gets ten grand off the top for his trouble. If she doesn't return in a month, the money is to go to her sister. Two weeks later Carrie turns up dead, struck by a truck on a deserted country road. McGee could easily deliver the money to Carrie's sister, but questions keep nagging at him. Was her death really accidental? Where had the money come from? Had Carrie told anyone that McGee had it? Somewhere out there is someone who thinks he can wipe out the past by wiping out everyone who is part of it. And McGee is part of it . . . John D. MacDonald has written more than 60 books and 500 short stories. The Dreadful Lemon Sky is his sixteenth book in the famous Travis McGee series. A finely wrought plot, multidimensional characters, and plenty of action seasoned with humor and wisdom are all part of the style that has made John D. MacDonald one of America's most widely read authors and Travis McGee one of America's favorite fictional heroes.. First Edition 4th Printing. Hard Cover. Fair/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
