In the liberating atmosphere of the 1930s, Baker rose to fame as the first black star on the world stage, from London to Vienna, Alexandria to Buenos Aires. After World War II, and her time in the French Resistance, Baker devoted herself to the struggle against racial segregation, publicly battling the humiliations she had for so long suffered personally. She led by example, and over the course of the 1950s adopted twelve orphans of different ethnic backgrounds: a veritable Rainbow Tribe. A victim of racism throughout her life, Josephine Baker would sing of love and liberty until the day she died
Weapons of mass diplomacy by Abel Lanzac( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following 9/11, President Bush's "War on Terror" with plans to invade Iraq erupted into a cultural clash between French reluctance and American assurance over the case for "Weapons of Mass Destruction." In Weapons of Mass Diplomacy, diplomat Abel Lanzac reveals the tension and politics through a French insider's point of view, with satirical humor that softens the controversial subject matter. Readers follow Lanzac's fictionalized self, Arthur Vlaminck, a speechwriter for the French Foreign Minister. As part of a team of flamboyant ministerial advisors, he has been tasked with drafting France's response to the growing international crisis in the Middle East, which is then delivered before the United Nations Security Council. A graphic milestone of diplomacy, Weapons of Mass Diplomacy-a bestseller in Europe-provides a revelatory account of a period that saw French fries become "freedom fries" and an alternative perspective on the decisions leading up to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq
