New York: Random House. Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 2006. Fourth Printing. Hardcover. 1400064341 . 320 pages; What does it mean to be an American, and what can America be today? To answer these questions, celebrated philosopher and journalist Bernard-Henri Levy spent a year traveling throughout the country in the footsteps of another great Frenchman, Alexis de Tocqueville, whose <I>Democracy in America</I> remains the most influential book ever written about our country. The result is <I>American Vertigo</I>, a fascinating, wholly fresh look at a country we sometimes only think we know. From Rikers Island to Chicago mega-churches, from Muslim communities in Detroit to an Amish enclave in Iowa, Levy investigates issues at the heart of our democracy: the special nature of American patriotism, the coexistence of freedom and religion (including the religion of baseball), the prison system, the "return of ideology" and the health of our political institutions, and much more. He revisits and updates Tocqueville's most important beliefs, such as the dangers posed by "the tyranny of the majority," explores what Europe and America have to learn from each other, and interprets what he sees with a novelist's eye and a philosopher's depth. Through powerful interview-based portraits across the spectrum of the American people, from prison guards to clergymen, from Norman Mailer to Barack Obama, from Sharon Stone to Richard Holbrooke, Levy fills his book with a tapestry of American voices - some wise, some shocking. Both the grandeur and the hellish dimensions of American life are unflinchingly explored. And big themes emerge throughout, from the crucial choices America faces today to the underlying reality that, unlike the "Old World," America remains the fulfillment of the world's desire to worship, earn, and live as one wishes - a place, despite all, where inclusion remains not just an ideal but an actual practice. At a time when Americans are anxious about how the world perceives them and, indeed, keen to make sense of themselves, a brilliant and sympathetic foreign observer has arrived to help us begin a new conversation about the meaning of America. ., Random House, 2006, Thomas McGreevy (July 29, 1825 - January 2, 1897) was a Canadian politician and contractor. Born in Quebec, he was the son of Robert McGreevy, a blacksmith, and Rose Smith. In 1867 he was elected MP for Quebec West (as a liberal conservative), and was re-elected in 1872, 1874, 1878, 1882, 1887 and 1891. He was expelled from the House of Commons for corruption on September 29, 1891, and following his conviction for defrauding the government was sentenced to a year in prison. (Other MPs to be expelled from the Canadian House of Commons include Louis Riel and Quebec communist Fred Rose.) Following his release on March 1, 1894, he was re-elected to Parliament in 1895. He was the contractor for the building of the Parliament of Canada. He was married three times: to Mary Ann Rourke on July 13, 1857, to Bridget Caroline Nolan on February 4, 1861 and to Mary Georgina Woolsey on January 30, 1867. He had several children by Mary Georgina including Stella and Herbert. Mary Georgina came from a wealthy Quebec family, now most famous for being the subject of William Berczy's portrait of The Woolsey Family (1809)." -- WikipediaKeywords: RICHARD ALDINGTON ENGLISHMAN FIRST EDITION THOMAS MCGREEVY First edition.

Very Good/Very Good., Chatto & Windus, 1931, 360 pp. "Carl Carmer writes his first novel, and -- for his background -- has plumbed the rich history of New York's up-state ""Genesee Country"", in the period ten years and more after the Revolution, when various influences were at work to disrupt the young republic. Small religious groups played havoc with emotional balance; real estate actions on a grand scale were used as levers to inculcate disturbing anti-democratic pulses; miniature dictatorships throve briefly and perished. A rich pattern, with the of romance woven through, as Nathan Hart, escaped prisoner of Whiskey Rebellion risings, makes a place for himself, first as an itinerant portrait painter, then as a former, denying the rights of the aristocrats who were seeking to dominate the scene, and upholding the rights of the little land owners. His devious romances -- now with a Philadelphia maid, now with a religious fanatic, now with a Maryland aristocrat who was sure she could convert him -- finally found reality with a girl of mixed blood."Keywords: CARL CARMER GENESEE FEVER FICTION NOVEL LOCAL NEW YORK REGIONAL UPSTATE  Spine cocked, pages toned.

Very Good/Very Good. From Publishers Weekly A youthful marriage frees Ann Pollock from an unhappy home life. While her mother-in-law doesn't initially welcome the shop girl her son loves, the thrifty bride soon proves her worth by supporting her in-laws after Phillip Coulter volunteers to serve in World War II. Crushed by the tortures of a Japanese prison camp, Phillip returns to civilian life to find his once-proud mother incapacitated by a stroke and his dreams of a bright future reduced to an ill-paying job as a law clerk. The birth of a daughter, Eva, brings joy to the Coulters, but as money worries mount, Ann takes a job in a real estate office despite her husband's objections. With each successful deal, the marriage becomes more hollow, and Ann is devastated when Phillip deserts her. Though a new love assuages her pain, that relationship disintegrates after a botched abortion leaves Eva sterile. The Coulters than reunite, and just when things start to work out, Phillip suffers a stroke, followed by Allzheimer's disease. The first third of the book offers a poignant look at an earlier era, but the constant catastrophes and labored solutions make the trials of Job seem minor.

From Library Journal For more than 25 years Ann Coulter devotes her life to her husband, Phillip, and their daughter Evie. Even when she finds a man she truly loves, she refuses to get a divorce because Phillip and Evie trust and need her. Loyalty and integrity seem to win in the end, however, as Ann, freed by Phillip's death, places a call to her lover. Although Freeman's writing is often saccharine, readers familiar with her other works ( Portraits, Come Pour the Wine ) will feel right at home with the Coulters.... read more --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. <br/><br/> <br/><br/>, G.
