Nicholas Miraculous : the amazing career of the redoubtable Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler by Michael Rosenthal( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To those who loved him, like Teddy Roosevelt, he was ""Nicholas Miraculous, "" the fabled educator who had a hand in everything; to those who did not, like novelist Upton Sinclair, he was ""the intellectual leader of the American plutocracy, "" a champion of ""false and cruel ideals."" Ezra Pound branded him ""one of the more loathsome figures"" of the age. Whether celebrated or despised, Nicholas Murray Butler (1862-1947) was an irresistible force who helped shape American history. With wit and irony, Rosenthal investigates Butler's rise to prominence as president of Columbia University, which h

Barney : Grove Press and Barney Rosset, America's maverick publisher and the battle against censorship by Michael Rosenthal( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An incisive, compulsively readable biography of the man the Guardian called "the most influential avant-garde publisher of the twentieth century." An impetuous outsider who delighted in confronting American hypocrisy and prudery, Barney Rosset liberated American culture from the constraints of Puritanism. As the head of Grove Press, he single-handedly broke down the laws against obscenity, changing forever the nature of writing and publishing in this country. He brought to the reading public the European avant-garde, among them Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter, radical political and literary voices such as Malcolm X, Che Guevara, and Jack Kerouac, steamy Victorian erotica, and banned writers such as D.H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, and William Burroughs. His almost mystical belief in the sacrosanct nature of the First Amendment essentially demarcates the before and after of American publishing. Barney explores how Grove's landmark legal victories freed publishers to print what they wanted, and it traces Grove's central role in the countercultural ferment of the sixties and early seventies. Drawing on the Rosset papers at Columbia University and personal interviews with former Grove Press staff members, friends, and wives, it tells the fascinating story of this feisty, abrasive, visionary, and principled cultural revolutionary--a modern "Huckleberry Finn" according to Nobel Prize-winning novelist Kenzaburo Oe--who altered the reading habits of a nation"--

Thomas Gainsborough by Thomas Gainsborough( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The perennially popular paintings of Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) have long been recognised as embodying the sophistication and elegance of Georgian England. The inventiveness and complexity of his techniques remain as dazzling today as they were to his contemporaries. He was among the first British artists to show his work in public exhibitions, and throughout his life he was committed to creating a modern art with modern subjects. Produced alongside Tate Britain's major Gainsborough exhibition, this film explores his portraits and his landscapes as well as the sentimental images of children and the poor which seem so alien to sensibilities now. Detailed interviews with the exhibition's curators Michael Rosenthal and Martin Myrone celebrate Gainsborough's achievements at the same time as outlining the historical and social contexts of his work
