Best of enemies by Gore Vidal( Visual )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1968 television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. William F. Buckley Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement. A Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis, Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, Vidal and Buckley believed each other's political ideologies were dangerous for America. Like rounds in a heavyweight battle, they pummeled out policy and personal insult-their explosive exchanges devolving into vitriolic name-calling. Live and unscripted, they kept viewers riveted. Ratings for ABC News skyrocketed, and a new era in public discourse was born

Hot seat : theater criticism for the New York times, 1980-1993 by Frank Rich( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his nearly fourteen years as chief drama critic of The New York Times, Frank Rich was both admired as a passionate advocate for the best in New York theater and reviled as "the Butcher of Broadway" for his presumed destructive power over the commercial fate of Broadway shows. Hot Seat is Rich's definitive chronicle of his long run - an encyclopedic anthology of more than three hundred of his best reviews and essays, interspersed with further thoughts, entirely new to this volume, about his adventures on the aisle at the tumultuous time when Broadway was decimated by AIDS and colonized by the British musical
The secret way to war : the Downing Street Memo and the Iraq War's buried history by Mark Danner( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Secret Way to War, Mark Danner examines in detail the record of decision-making revealed by the so-called Downing Street documents - a set of memoranda and reports, included here in full - that offer an inside view of members of Tony Blair's government and their American counterparts in Washington, as they struggle to come up with legal and political rationales for invading Iraq. These documents prove, writes Danner, that President Bush had decided on war eight months before invading, and only later choose, under British urging, to use the supposed threat from Saddam's weapons of mass destruction to justify it. The Secret Way to War describes how the documents, with "almost shocking clarity," tell of that deception - and how the US press and public, in large part, are managing not to listen."--Jacket

Arthur Carter : the geometry of passion by Arthur Carter( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Carter, who has spent much of his life in the worlds of finance and journalism, is an artist who has created a range of geometric abstractions and whose Orthogonal series will certainly have an important place in the history of sculpture. Only squares and circles, lines and ellipses, he says, can elegantly explain and simplify the complex meaning of life. In this comprehensive volume on his work, journalist Frank Rich contributes a biographical foreword and critic Robert C. Morgan describes Carter's achievements as an artist, carefully analyzing his place in the tradition of modern abstract art and the recent history of sculpture
