Dr. Spock : an American life by Thomas Maier( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Benjamin Spock is a uniquely American figure, a Connecticut Yankee whose name is a symbol of family life and whose Book of Baby and Child Care is revered for its common-sense, down-to-earth voice. At the same time, in many ways, Spock is a revolutionary and a magnet for controversy. The first pediatrician to apply Freud's theories of psychology to children, he wrote his book as a Freudian tract in disguise, intentionally camouflaging Freud for Americans (mixing in a little of John Dewey's progressive educational psychology as well as a great chunk of old-fashioned American optimism). When he applied his ideals to politics, Spock shocked his multitude of fans by protesting against the Vietnam War with Martin Luther King in 1967 and by running for president on the People's Party ticket in 1972. He was attacked by Norman Vincent Peale and Spiro Agnew for fostering a "permissive" society and by feminists for his traditional attitudes about women's role in the family. Perhaps even more startling, however, is Spock's troubled personal life. Thomas Maier's extensive interviews with Spock, his family, and those who knew him draw the first complete picture of this complicated man

Mafia spies : the inside story of the CIA, gangsters, JFK, and Castro by Thomas Maier( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mafia Spies is the definitive account of America's most remarkable espionage plots ever--with CIA agents, mob hitmen, "kompromat" sex, presidential indiscretion, and James Bond-like killing devices together in a top-secret mystery full of surprise twists and deadly intrigue. In the early 1960s, two top gangsters, Johnny Roselli and Sam Giancana, were hired by the CIA to kill Cuba's Communist leader, Fidel Castro, only to wind up murdered themselves amidst Congressional hearings and a national debate about the JFK assassination. Mafia Spies revolves around the outlaw friendship of these two mob buddies and their fascinating world of CIA spies, fellow Mafioso in Chicago, Cuban exile commandos in Miami, beautiful Hollywood women, famous entertainers like Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack in Las Vegas, Castro's own spies in Havana and his double agents hidden in Florida, J. Edgar Hoover's FBI snooping, and the Kennedy administration's "Get Castro" obsession in Washington. Thomas Maier is among the first to take full advantage of the National Archives' 2017-18 release of the long-suppressed JFK files, many of which deal with the CIA's top secret anti-Castro operation in Florida and Cuba. With several new investigative findings, Mafia Spies is a spy exposé, murder mystery, and shocking true story that recounts America's first foray into the assassination business, a tale with profound impact for today's Trump era. Who killed Johnny and Sam--and why wasn't Castro assassinated despite the CIA's many clandestine efforts?"--Jacket flaps

Un excitante retrato del ginecólogo William Masters y la sexóloga Virginia Johnson, la pareja que cambió la forma en que todos pensamos, hablamos y participamos del sexo. Las investigaciones del ginecólogo William Masters y la sexóloga Virginia Johnson supusieron toda una revolución en la década de los 60.

Thomas Maier ofrece una mirada sin precedentes sobre la pareja que cambió la forma en que todos pensamos, hablamos y participamos del sexo.

The American Prospect Puede que debido a su tórrido tema, Masters of sex [...] pueda impactar a algunos lectores por resultar extraordinariamente gráfico tratándose de una biografía, pero este perturbador relato de sexo y ciencia en la teoría y la práctica es en realidad más aleccionador que excitanteO, The Oprah Magazine
