Allen Ginsberg in America by Jane Kramer( Book )

26 editions published between 1934 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Allen Ginsberg came to national attention when his poem "Howl" was the subject of a San Francisco obscenity trial in 1956. Since then, millions of copies of the poem have been read on college campuses and elsewhere all over America. His powerful imagination, political agitation, and magnetic charisma have made him a symbol of the cultural transformation of the past fifty years. Jane Kramer's book is an incisive and passionately human portrayal of Ginsberg's world and the people in it, whirling across America from San Francisco to Midwest college towns, from New York's East Village to California be-ins. Since his passing in 1997, Ginsberg has come to be recognized as a key figure in the American literary pantheon."--BOOK JACKET

The politics of memory : looking for Germany in the new Germany by Jane Kramer( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Politics of Memory Jane Kramer surveys the moral and political landscape of today's Germany, where the reunification of East and West has brought into conflict two vastly different memories of what it means to "be" German. These essays cut straight to the Zeitgeist of Europe's most politically and economically influential country. Self-styled anarchists destroy a filmmaker's Berlin restaurant to protest its "bourgeois" nature, but their ruthless call for freedom is simply German fascism repackaged. A young East German who escapes to the West doesn't know what to do with himself once he gets there - an example of the deep passivity that is perhaps the Communists' most troubling legacy to the "new" Germany. And the bizarre story of a German holocaust memorial reveals a revisionist desire to portray the country as a victim of World War II by "turning the twelve dark years of Hitler into twelve years of resistance to Hitler and occupation by Hitler; an abandonment, for the sake of settling the past into 'history, ' of the very plain historical truth that Germany had chosen Hitler."
Whose art is it? by Jane Kramer( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whose Art Is It? is the story of sculptor John Ahearn, a white artist in a black and Hispanic neighborhood of the South Bronx, and of the people he cast for a series of public sculptures commissioned for an intersection outside a police station. Jane Kramer, telling this story, raises one of the most urgent questions of our time: How do we live in a society we share with people who are, often by their own definitions, "different?" Ahearn's subjects were "not the best of the neighborhood." They were a junkie, a hustler, and a street kid. Their images sparked a controversy throughout the community - and New York itself - over issues of white representations of people of color and the appropriateness of particular images as civic art. The sculptures, cast in bronze and painted, were up for only five days before Ahearn removed them." From the bookjacket
Lone patriot : the short career of an American militiaman by Jane Kramer( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Lone Patriot, Kramer, who covers Europe for The New Yorker, now turns to America with a portrait of the commander-in-chief of an erstwhile Patriot army called the Washington State Militia." "In 1996 Kramer made the first of what would be many trips to Whatcom County, Washington, to talk to John Pitner and some of the veterans of Alpha One, his "leadership" squad. Through their voices, Pitner's in particular, Kramer tells the story of a movement that surfaced in America in the nineties, as the millennium approached, and has continued - its resolve, if anything, strengthened by the events of the past year - into the new century. Her powerful evocations of Whatcom County could easily describe any number of rural communities in the Pacific Northwest today - a place of refuge to a strange assortment of conspiracy theorists, armed "constitutionalists," white supremacists, county secessionists, Freemen, and Christian fanatics, and to the kind of groups that survive on their discontent."--BOOK JACKET
The reporter's kitchen by Jane Kramer( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jane Kramer started cooking when she started writing. Her first dish, a tinned-tuna curry, was assembled on a tiny stove in her graduate student apartment while she pondered her first writing assignment. From there, whether her travels took her to a tent settlement in the Sahara for an afternoon interview with an old Berber woman toiling over goat stew, or to the great London restaurateur and author Yotam Ottolenghi's Notting Hill apartment, where they assembled a buttered phylo-and-cheese tower called a mutabbaq, Jane always returned from the field with a new recipe, and usually, a friend. For the first time, Jane's beloved food pieces from The New Yorker, where she has been a staff writer since 1964, are arranged in one place--a collection of definitive chef profiles, personal essays, and gastronomic history that is at once deeply personal and humane. The Reporter's Kitchen follows Jane everywhere, and throughout her career--from her summer writing retreat in Umbria, where Jane and her anthropologist husband host memorable expat Thanksgivings--in July--to the Nordic coast, where Jane and acclaimed Danish chef Rene Redzepi, of Noma, forage for edible sea-grass. The Reporter's Kitchen is an important record of culture distilled through food around the world. It's welcoming and inevitably surprising"--

Survivors in Ukraine by Stephen Shore( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A powerful and haunting visual record, Stephen Shore's portraits highlight the resilience and hope of Ukraine's Holocaust survivors. Shore's latest project is his most emotionally-charged to date and the first photobook on this subject. An important cultural document, Survivors in Ukraine sits between the traditions of the diaristic colour photobook that Shore himself pioneered with 'Uncommon places'(1982) and 'American surfaces' (2005), and that of the 'concerned' photographer using the camera as witness to conflict and other historic events

Stephen Shore : from Galilee to the Negev by Stephen Shore( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stephen Shore is a pioneering photographer and influential teacher. From Galilee to the Negev is an intimate portrait of a multi-faceted place, exploring the landscape of Israel and the Palestinian territories of the West Bank; its complexities and its contradictions. Shore travelled the length and breadth of the region, questioning and revealing through his camera lens. His visual inquiry explores the landscape itself and the people who live in it - the daily lives and the narratives that combine to create this fascinating place - at once beautiful and ugly, safe and hostile. A selection of texts by a diverse range of writers - who have each selected one photograph as a spring board - will be interspersed amongst the photographs, offering a gathering of voices and perspectives
