The imperial cruise : a secret history of empire and war by James Bradley( Book )

In 1905 President Teddy Roosevelt dispatched Secretary of War William Taft, his gun-toting daughter Alice and a gaggle of congressmen on a mission to Japan, the Philippines, China, and Korea. There, they would quietly forge a series of agreements that divided up Asia. At the time, Roosevelt was bully-confident about America's future on the continent. But these secret pacts lit the fuse that would--decades later--result in a number of devastating wars: WWII, the Korean War, the communist revolution in China. One hundred years later, James Bradley retraces that epic voyage and discovers the remarkable truth about America's vast imperial past--and its world-shaking consequences. Full of fascinating characters and brilliantly told, The Imperial Cruise will forever reshape the way we understand U.S. history.--From the publisher

In this unforgettable chronicle of perhaps the most famous moment in American military history, James Bradley has captured the glory, the triumph, the heartbreak, and the legacy of the six men who raised the flag at Iwo Jima. Here is the true story behind the immortal photograph that has come to symbolize the courage and indomitable will of America. In February 1945, American Marines plunged into the surf at Iwo Jima--and into history. Through a hail of machine-gun and mortar fire that left the beaches strewn with comrades, they battled to the island's highest peak. And after climbing through a landscape of hell itself, they raised a flag. Now the son of one of the flag raisers has written a powerful account of six very different young men who came together in a moment that will live forever. To his family, John Bradley never spoke of the photograph or the war. But after his death at age seventy, his family discovered closed boxes of letters and photos

In his books, James Bradley has exposed the hidden truths behind America's engagement in Asia. Now comes his most engrossing work yet. Beginning in the 1850s, Bradley introduces us to the prominent Americans who made their fortunes in the China opium trade. As they--good Christians all--profitably addicted millions, American missionaries arrived, promising salvation for those who adopted Western ways. And that was just the beginning. From drug dealer Warren Delano to his grandson Franklin Delano Roosevelt, from the port of Hong Kong to the towers of Princeton University, from the era of Appomattox to the age of the A-Bomb, The China Mirage explores a difficult century that defines US-Chinese relations to this day

Au cinquième jour de la sanglante bataille d'Iwo Jima, cinq Marines et un infirmier de la Navy hissent ensemble le drapeau américain au sommet du Mont Suribachi, tout juste repris aux Japonais. L'image de ces hommes unis face à l'adversité devient légendaire en l'espace de quelques jours. Elle captive le peuple américain, las d'une guerre interminable, et lui donne des motifs d'espérer. Pour mettre à profit cet engouement, les trois "porte-drapeaux" sont livrés à l'admiration des foules. Leur nouvelle mission : servir leur pays en vendant les précieux Bons qui financent l'effort de guerre. Le laconique John "Doc" Bradley, le timide Amérindien Ira Hayes et le fringant Rene Gagnon se prêtent au jeu avec un dévouement exemplaire. Ils sillonnent sans relâche le pays, serrent des milliers de mains et prononcent des allocutions. Mais, en leur for intérieur, une autre bataille se livre... (Source : www.allocine.fr, 2017-01-16)

The stark, barren landscapes around Coober Pedy are stunningly photographed by Warwick Thornton, who also directed this outstanding short film. Thornton went on to achieve international recognition in 2009 for his first feature, SAMSON AND DELILAH. This beautiful documentary is a character study of an old man named Norman Hayes Jagamarra who gave up droving and came to Coober Pedy decades ago to work as an opal-miner. Norman is a 'noodler' - someone who sifts through the mining scrap-heaps looking for remnant opals among the rubble. Although Norman qualifies for the old-age pension, he'd rather not take the 'sit-down money' and prefers to keep noodling and be self-sufficient. Norman's reminiscences reveal his dignity and pride in his work. He reflects on his years in the Coober Pedy area, about the devastating impact of the introduction of alcohol and the social dislocation that followed for many Aboriginal people. He also talks about the greed that disrupted the life on the diggings. Norman's story is backed by a superb original music score by the Dirty Three

In the heart of central Australia, the town of Alice Springs has become something of a haven for Lesbians - a place where black and white women mix and mingle, confronting the challenges of loving across racial and cultural gaps. In a delightful parody of a famed TV naturalist, Destiny Attenborough (played by filmmaker Trisha Morton-Thomas) guides us through the habitat and customs of the women who love women in Alice Springs. The origins of the community are traced back to the women's movement against the American base at Pine Gap near Alice Springs in the early 1980s. Three Aboriginal Lesbians provide insight into the complexities of their relationships with other women and with their families. Satirical and funny, this revealing documentary asks the question: is it hard to sustain love when racial and cultural differences seem insurmountable?
