The Shakespeare wars : clashing scholars, public fiascoes, palace coups by Ron Rosenbaum( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cultural historian Rosenbaum gives readers a way of rethinking the greatest works of the human imagination, as he shakes up much that we thought we understood about a vital subject and renews our sense of excitement and urgency. Rather than raking over worn-out fragments of biography, Rosenbaum focuses on cutting-edge controversies about the true source of Shakespeare's enchantment and illumination--the astonishing language itself. He takes readers into the midst of fierce battles among the most brilliant Shakespearean scholars and directors over just how to delve deeper into the mind of Shakespeare. He makes ostensibly arcane textual scholarship seductive, and he shows us great directors as Shakespearean scholars in their own right. This book offers a thrilling opportunity to engage with Shakespeare's work at its deepest levels.--From publisher description

Those who forget the past : the question of anti-Semitism( Book )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Something has changed. After the horrors of World War II, people everywhere believed that it could never happen again, but today the evidence is unmistakable that anti-Semitism is dramatically on the rise once more. The torching of European synagogues, suicide terror in Israel, the relentless comparison of the Israelis to Nazis, the paranoid post'September 11 Internet-bred conspiracy theories, the Holocaust-denial literature spreading throughout the Arab world, the calumny and violence erupting on American college campuses: Suddenly, a new anti-Semitism has become widespread, even acceptable to some. In this chilling and important new book, Ron Rosenbaum, author of the highly praised Explaining Hitler, brings together a collection of powerful essays about the origin and nature of the new anti-Semitism. Paul Berman, Marie Brenner, David Brooks, Harold Evans, Todd Gitlin, Jeffrey Goldberg, Bernard Lewis, David Mamet, Amos Oz, Cynthia Ozick, Frank Rich, Jonathan Rosen, Edward Said, Judith Shulevitz, Lawrence Summers, Jeffrey Toobin, and Robert Wistrich are among the distinguished writers and intellectuals who grapple with painful questions: Why now' What is'or isn't'new' Is a second Holocaust possible, this time in the Middle East' How does anti-Semitism differ from anti-Zionism' These are issues too dangerous to ignore, too pressing to deny. Those Who Forget the Past is an essential volume for understanding the new bigotry of the twenty-first century. From the Trade Paperback edition

"Ray Midge's wife, Norma, has run away with her creep of a first husband. She also ran away with Midge's credit cards and his Ford Torino--in place of which she left her lover's 1963 Buick Special, a compact car with 74,000 miles on it and a quarter-turn slack in the steering wheel. But Midge can track the lovebirds' escape once the credit card receipts start rolling in, and he sets off after them to get his car back. The route: from Arkansas through Texas through Mexico to a remote, bedraggled plantation in Honduras. Along the way, Midge meets Dr. Reo Symes, a down-on-his-luck old Texas M.D. with some hapless dreams and a broken-down bus called 'The Dog of the South.' The further south the journey takes them, the wilder their days get. And we're lucky to be along for the ride--plunging headlong into the peculiar world of Charles Portis's (Central) America"--Publisher description
