8 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cold War America, 1946 to 1990 offers an in-depth look at American culture during a 45-year period of drastic political, social, technological, military, and economic change, when the threat of nuclear war loomed over millions worldwide and post-World War II ideological tensions took form as an ever-deepening chasm separating the two superpowers - the United States and the Soviet Union. The national and global societies that emerged at the end of this period were nearly unrecognizable from those that existed at its outset."--BOOK JACKET

Conversations of Lord Byron with the Countess of Blessington by Marguerite Blessington( Book )

15 editions published between 1834 and 2011 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Countess of Blessington (1789-1849) met the poet Lord Byron (1788-1824) in Genoa in 1823 she noted that 'the impression of the first few minutes disappointed me'. Despite this precarious start, they struck up a friendship and met nearly every day for two months. Byron had been living in the Italian port city since the previous autumn and Blessington and her family had arrived in April 1823. Her account of their conversations was not published until 1834, a decade after Byron's death. Blessington expresses candid opinions about the poet in this work, writing that Byron 'is a strange mélange of good and evil, the predominancy of either depending wholly on the humour he may happen to be in'. Through her frankness, the author - herself a well-known writer who hosted a distinguished literary salon - also reveals much about herself and the literary world she and Byron inhabited
