The Catskills : Its History and How It Changed America by Stephen M Silverman( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Catskills ("Cat Creek" in Dutch), America's original frontier, northwest of New York City, with its seven hundred thousand acres of forest preserve and its five counties--Delaware, Greene, Sullivan, Ulster, Schoharie; America's first great vacationland; the subject of the nineteenth-century Hudson River School paintings that captured the almost godlike majesty of the mountains and landscapes, the skies, waterfalls, pastures, cliffs ... refuge and home to poets and gangsters, tycoons and politicians, preachers and outlaws, musicians and spiritualists, outcasts and rebels ... Stephen Silverman and Raphael Silver tell of the turning points that made the Catskills so vital to the development of America: Henry Hudson's first spotting the distant blue mountains in 1609; the New York State constitutional convention, resulting in New York's own Declaration of Independence from Great Britain and its own constitution, causing the ire of the invading British army ... the Catskills as a popular attraction in the 1800s, with the construction of the Catskill Mountain House and its rugged imitators that offered WASP guests "one-hundred percent restricted" accommodations ("Hebrews will knock vainly for admission"), a policy that remained until the Catskills became the curative for tubercular patients, sending real-estate prices plummeting and the WASP enclave on to richer pastures ... Here the gangsters (Jack "Legs" Diamond and Dutch Schultz, among them) who sought refuge in the Catskill Mountains, and the resorts that after World War II catered to upwardly mobile Jewish families, giving rise to hundreds of hotels inspired by Grossinger's, the original "Disneyland with knishes"--The Concord, Brown's hotel, Kutsher's Hotel, and others--in what became known as the Borscht Belt and Sour Cream Alps, with their headliners from movies and radio (Phil Silvers, Eddie Cantor, Milton Berle, et al.), and others who learned their trade there, among them Moss Hart (who got his start organizing summer theatricals), Sid Caesar, Lenny Bruce, Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, and Joan Rivers. Here is a nineteenth-century America turning away from England for its literary and artistic inspiration, finding it instead in Washinton Irving's "Rip Van Winkle" and his childhood recollections (set in the Catskills) ... in James Fenimore Cooper's adventure-romances, which provided a pastoral history, describing the shift from a colonial to a nationalist mentality ... and in the canvases of Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Frederick Church, and others that caught the grandeur of the wilderness and that gave texture, color, and form to Irving's and Cooper's imaginings. Here are the entrepreneurs and financiers who saw the Catskills as a way to strike it rich, plundering the resources that had been likened to "creation," the Catskills' tanneries that supplied the boots and saddles for Union troops in the Civil War ... and the bluestone quarries whose excavated rock became the curbs and streets of the fast-growing Eastern Seaboard. Here are the Catskills brought fully to life in all of their intensity, beauty, vastness, and lunacy."--Publisher's description

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than 30 years, Kevin Duncan's photographs energized such seminal publications as After Dark Magazine and Opera News. Renowned for this ability to capture the distinctive styles and personalities of his subjects, frequently dancers, he gained widespread acclaim for his gift of celebrating a specific type of performer: the woman whose phenomenal talent and charisma make her more than a star, more than an icon, she is a Diva." "Until his untimely death in 1986, Duncan's camera was like a disco ball illuminating the likes of Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera, Angela Lansbury, Gelsey Kirkland, Joan Rivers, Bette Midler and other luminaries of the stage and screen." "DIVAS! is a celebration of Duncan, his muses, and the time in which they lived, loved, posed, and partied. It includes famous images, such as Anita Morris's controversial body-baring shot from Broadway's Nine, as well as rarely seen photographs of Susan Sarandon, Carrie Fisher, Lily Tomlin, Labelle, and Diane Keaton."--BOOK JACKET

Effect of shock-induced high dynamic pressures on iron-base alloys( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The effect of high dynamic presures generated by strong shock waves on the metallrgical properties of selected iron based alloys was investigated. this investigation incuded a sudy of the effects of shock wave duration, repeated shocks on a single test specimen, inreasing shock wave intensity, and post shock heat treatment on the yield and tensile stren ths of H-11 tool steel and 25% nickel steel. As a result of explosive shock hardening, H-11 steel increased in yield strength from 235 ksi in the preshocked condition to 340 ksi in the asshocked (360 ilobrs) condition, while the 25% nickel steel showed yield strength increases from 235 ksi in the austenitized-plusaged condition to 255 ksi in the shocked-plusaged condition. These increases in yield strength were brought about wthout any significant macroscopic plastic deformtion. (Author)
