Double life : the shattering affair between Chief Judge Sol Wachtler and socialite Joy Silverman by Linda Wolfe( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed true-crime journalist Linda Wolfe presents the bizarre and riveting true story of how the chief judge of the New York State Court of Appeals was brought down by sexual obsession. He was the top justice of New York's highest court. She was a stunning socialite and his wife's step-cousin. In 1993 Sol Wachtler was convicted of blackmail and extortion against Joy Silverman, his former mistress. How did a respected jurist and one of the most prominent men in America end up serving time in prison? Linda Wolfe starts at the beginning--from Wachtler's modest Brooklyn upbringing through his courtship and marriage to Joan Wolosoff, the only child of a wealthy real estate developer. Joy Fererh was three and a half when her father walked out. When she and Sol met, he was fifty-five and nearing the pinnacle of his legal career. She was a thirtysomething stay-at-home mother who, with Sol's help, made a career for herself as a Republican Party fundraiser. They kept their affair a secret--until an explosive mix of sex, power, betrayal, and prescription-drug abuse set the stage for the tabloid headlines of the decade

The Cosmo report by Linda Wolfe( Book )

"The Largest-ever sexual survey of American Women. Bigger by far than the Kinsey Report or any other sexual study of American women, the Cosmo Report is a landmark work about female behavior. The report is based on the responses of more than one hundred thousand readers of Cosmopolitan magazine to a questionnaire about their sexual habits and preferences. But what makes the book more than a mere set of statistics--however revealin--is that many of the respondents augmented their replies with highly personal letters detailing the sexual practices they engaged in, the ones they most enjoyed, the ones they abhorred, and how they felt about the sexual revolution that transformed the lives of women in the 1970s and 1980s"--

Kinsey : a biography by Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

20 Jahre lang erträgt Alfred C. Kinsey das Leben, in das ihn sein streng religiöser, puritanisch verbitterter Vater hineingezwungen hat. Dann befreit sich der junge Mann, studiert Biologie und Psychologie, unterrichtet an der Universität von Indiana und heiratet die Naturwissenschaftlerin Clara McMillen, die mit ihm drei Kinder grosszieht. 20 Jahre lang betreibt Kinsey Insektenstudien, bis er auf ein komplexeres, von der Wissenschaft sträflich ignoriertes Forschungsgebiet stösst. Erstaunt über das sexuelle Informationsdefizit seiner Studenten, beginnt er die menschliche Sexualität mit Hilfe eines engagierten Teams und einer ausgefeilten Interviewtechnik akribisch zu untersuchen. Nachdem er über 18.000 Amerikaner befragt hat, veröffentlicht Kinsey 1948 sein Buch "Das sexuelle Verhalten des Mannes". Es wird ein riesiger Erfolg und macht den Sexualexperten weltberühmt. Doch als er sich mit ähnlicher Besessenheit seinem nächsten Projekt zuwendet, trifft er nur auf Widerstände. Kinsey unterschätzt das konservative Amerika, das sich gegen ihn erhebt. Aber er unterschätzt auch die menschlichen Emotionen und das Chaos, für die seine Theorien vom Ideal der freien Liebe sorgen... (Quelle: cede.ch)
