Airlines and Air Mail - hardcover

2002, ISBN: 9780813119397

ID: 9780813122199

Conventional wisdom credits only entrepreneurs with the vision to create America's commercial airline industry and contends that it was not until Roosevelt's Civil Aeronautics Act of 1938 that federal airline regulation began. In Airlines and Air Mail, F. Robert van der Linden persuasively argues that Progressive republican policies of Herbert Hoover actually fostered the growth of American commercial aviation. Air mail contracts provided a critical indirect subsidy and a solid financial foundation for this nascent industry. Postmaster General Walter F. Brown used these contracts as a carrot and a stick to ensure that the industry developed in the public interest while guaranteeing the survival of the pioneering companies. Bureaucrats, entrepreneurs, and politicians of all stripes are thoughtfully portrayed in this thorough chronicle of one of America's most resounding successes, the commercial aviation industry.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/7c28bc65/9780813122199.jpg|9780813122199|Airlines and Air Mail : Hardback : The University Press of Kentucky : 9780813122199 : 31 Jan 2002 : The author argues that the progressive Republican policies of Herbert Hoover actually fostered the growth of US commercial aviation.

Fantasy, Forgery and Byron Legend

Byron was - to echo Wordsworth - half-perceived and half-created. He would have affirmed Jean Baudrillard's observation that "to seduce is to die to reality and reconstitute oneself as illusion". But among the readers he seduced, in person and in poetry, were women possessed of vivid imaginations who collaborated with him in fashioning his legend. Accused of "treating women harshly", Byron acknowledged: "It may be so - but I have been their martyr. My whole life has been sacrificed to them and by them". Those whom he spellbound often returned the favor and in their own writings tried to remake his public image to reflect their own. Through writings both well known and generally unknown, Soderholm examines the poet's relationship with five women: Elizabeth Pigot, Caroline Lamb, Annabella Milbanke, Teresa Guiccioli, and Marguerite Blessington. These women participated in Byron's life and literary career and the manipulation of images that is the Byron legend. Soderholm argues against the sentimental depictions of biographers who would preserve Byron's romantic aura by diminishing the contributions of these women to his social, sexual, and literary identity. By restoring the contexts in which literary works charm or bedevil particular readers, the author shows the consequences of Byron's poetic seductions during and after his life.
