The Avengers : a Jewish war story by Rich Cohen( Book )

31 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and German and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1944, a band of Jewish guerrillas emerged from the Baltic forests to join the Russian army in its attack on Vilna, the capital of Lithuania. The band was led by Abba Kovner, a charismatic young poet and Zionist leader. In the ghetto, Abba had built bombs, sneaking them out through the city's sewer tunnels to sabotage German outposts. His chief lieutenants were two teenage girls, Vitka Kemper and Ruzka Korczak. At seventeen, Vitka and Ruzka were perhaps the most daring partisans in the East, the first to blow up a train in occupied Europe. Each night, the three of them shared a bed, raising gossip, but what they found together was more than temporary solace. It was a great love affair. Then, in the last terrifying days of the war with travel in Europe still unsafe for Jews and the extent of the Holocaust still widely unknown they hatched a plan for revenge: before it was over, they would have smuggled enough poison into Nuremberg to kill 10,000 Nazis. The Avengers is the story of what happened to these rebels in the ghetto and in the forest, how they took revenge, and how fighting for the state of Israel, they moved beyond the violence of the Holocaust and made new lives

When I stop talking, you'll know I'm dead : useful stories from a persuasive man by Jerry Weintraub( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the story of Jerry Weintraub: the self-made, Brooklyn-born, Bronx-raised impresario, Hollywood producer, legendary deal maker, and friend of politicians and stars. No matter where nature has placed him--the club rooms of Brooklyn, the Mafia dives of New York's Lower East Side, the wilds of Alaska, or the hills of Hollywood, with Elvis or Sinatra, Robert Altman or George Clooney--he has found a way to put on a show and sell tickets at the door. "All life was a theater and I wanted to put it up on a stage," he writes. "I wanted to set the world under a marquee that read: 'Jerry Weintraub Presents.'" With wit, wisdom, and the cool confidence that has colored his remarkable career, Jerry chronicles a quintessentially American journey, one marked by luck, love, and improvisation. The stories he tells and the lessons we learn are essential, not just for those who love movies and music, but for businessmen, entrepreneurs, artists--everyone.--From publisher description

"On the South Side of Chicago in the late 1940s, two immigrants - one a Jew born in Russia, the other a black Blues singer from Mississippi - met and changed the course of musical history. Muddy Waters electrified the Blues, and Leonard Chess recorded it. Soon Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry added a dose of pulsating rhythm, and Chess Records captured that, too. Rock & Roll had arrived, and an industry was born." "Rich Cohen tells the engrossing story of how Chess, with the other record men, made this new sound into a multi-billion-dollar business - aggressively acquiring artists, strong-arming distributors, riding the crest of a wave that would crash over a whole generation."--Jacket

When I stop talking, you'll know I'm dead : useful stories from a persuasive man by Jerry Weintraub( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the story of Jerry Weintraub: the self-made, Brooklyn-born, Bronx-raised impresario, Hollywood producer, legendary deal maker, and friend of politicians and stars. No matter where nature has placed him--the club rooms of Brooklyn, the Mafia dives of New York's Lower East Side, the wilds of Alaska, or the hills of Hollywood--he has found a way to put on a show and sell tickets at the door. "All life was a theater and I wanted to put it up on a stage," he writes. "I wanted to set the world under a marquee that read: 'Jerry Weintraub Presents.'" In WHEN I STOP TALKING, YOU'LL KNOW I'M DEAD, we follow Weintraub from his first great success at age twenty-six with Elvis Presley, whom he took on the road with the help of Colonel Tom Parker; to the immortal days with Sinatra and Rat Pack glory; to his crowning hits as a movie producer, starting with Robert Altman and Nashville, continuing with Oh, God!, The Karate Kid movies, and Diner, among others, and summiting with Steven Soderbergh and Ocean's Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen. Along the way, we'll watch as Jerry moves from the poker tables of Palm Springs (the games went on for days), to the power rooms of Hollywood, to the halls of the White House, to Red Square in Moscow and the Great Palace in Beijing-all the while counseling potentates, poets, and kings, with clients and confidants like George Clooney, Bruce Willis, George H.W. Bush, Armand Hammer, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, John Denver, Bobby Fischer . . .well, the list goes on forever. And of course, the story is not yet over . . .as the old-timers say, "The best is yet to come." As Weintraub says, "When I stop talking, you'll know I'm dead." With wit, wisdom, and the cool confidence that has colored his remarkable career, Jerry chronicles a quintessentially American journey, one marked by luck, love, and improvisation. The stories he tells and the lessons we learn are essential, not just for those who love movies and music, but for businessmen, entrepreneurs, artists ... everyone

Israel is real by Rich Cohen( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Rich Cohen's new history of the Zionist idea and the Jewish state--the history of a nation chronicled as if it were the biography of a person--he brings to life dozens of figures, each driven by the same impulse: to reach Jerusalem. From false messiahs to the early Zionists, to the iconic figures of David Ben-Gurion and Golda Meir, Cohen shows how all these lives together form a single story. He examines the myth of the wandering Jew, the paradox of Jewish power, and the triumph and tragedy of the Jewish state.--From publisher description
