today. A lifelong moral struggle between duty and desire led to innumerable lovers and four husbands, including a tempestuous marriage to Edmund Wilson.

Sweet chaos : the Grateful Dead's American adventure by Carol Brightman ( Book )
6 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"If paradox is your pleasure, the Grateful Dead will never let you down. Born of the millennial yearnings of Haight Ashbury in the 1960s and founded on the principles of innovation and fierce independence, the Dead became the longest running show in American history and the centerpiece of a vast underground community whose loyalty appears undiminished." "How the Dead, alone among the avatars of the rebellious '60s, survived to speak to successive generations is the subject of this intensely provocative and personal narrative. Social critic and biographer Carol Brightman, who was active in the political struggles of the era, presents a Whitmanesque tableau of America's colliding countercultures." "Here the Dead - with their original fancy for the Beats and fondness for folk, bluegrass, and blues; their immersion in psychedelics; and their longing for a separate reality - appear alongside those they shunned: the radicals across the Bay in Berkeley. The Free Speech Movement, antiwar rallies, and trips to Vietnam and Cuba are re-created alongside Ken Kesey's Acid Tests, San Francisco be-ins, LSD trips, large and small, and rock festivals across the country. And gradually we see that while the zenith of the Grateful Dead experience was the moment of abandon to music, drugs, and dance, it was as a safe haven from the turmoil beyond the gates that the music and the culture won their place in the hearts of fans." "Meanwhile, a new portrait of the nonleader leader emerges, as those closest to Jerry Garcia, particularly his second wife, Mountain Girl, speak of his passions and his demons. We see Garcia as a musical existentialist enamored of tradition, a man possessed of a strange, all-encompassing influence who held to a vision of the Grateful Dead's destiny even as he recoiled from the juggernaut it became."--BOOK JACKET

Total insecurity : the myth of American omnipotence by Carol Brightman ( Book )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Carol Brightman shows how America's obsession with security following September 11, 2001, has prompted a permanent state of war and a permanent war economy, which has been a long time in formation by conservative strategists. She warns of the rise of Iraqi nationalism that US actions have brought about. And she analyzes the US abandonment of international treaties and security arrangements as more countries - including Iraq in 2000 - have switched or threaten to switch from dollars to euros for oil trading." "In a set of personal and historical reflections, Carol Brightman revisits the dissent of the 1960s and '70s and compares it to the protests of today. Brightman suggests that it will take more than regime change in Washington to dispel the myths and illusions about unilateral American power."--Jacket

In this no-holds-barred memoir with a foreword by Elizabeth Hardwick, the bestselling author of The Group recalls her early life in New York, revealing the genesis of and genius behind her groundbreaking fiction Mary McCarthy is a married twenty-four-year-old Communist and critic when this memoir begins. She's disciplined, dedicated, and sexually experimental: At one point she realizes that in twenty-four hours she "had slept with three different men." But she believes in the institution of marriage. Over the course of three years, she will have had two husbands, the second being the esteemed, much older critic Edmund Wilson. It is Wilson who becomes McCarthy's mentor and muse, urging her to try her hand at fiction. McCarthy's powers of observation are on witty display here, as the seventy-something writer recalls events that took place half a century earlier. Her eye for the revealing detail will be recognized by readers of her novels as she describes marching in May Day parades, attending parties for the Scottsboro Boys, and witnessing firsthand the American left wing's response to the Moscow trials and the Spanish Civil War. Picking up where How I Grew left off and unfinished at the time of her death in 1989, Intellectual Memoirs is a vivid snapshot of a distinctive place and time'New York in the late 1930s'and the forces that shaped Mary McCarthy's life as a woman and a writer. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Mary McCarthy including rare images from the author's estate
