Book Summary:

Fallaci, who covered wars throughout the world, and was almost killed more than once while doing so, had great personal courage and strong moral conviction. She once said she conducted herself according To The credo that "disobedience toward the oppressive as the only way to use the miracle of having been born." Never shy, bestselling Italian author and journalist Oriana Fallaci was granted access to countless world leaders, politicians and other notables across the globe. Some of her most memorable interviews included in this volume are those with the Dalai Lama, Ariel Sharon, Lech Walesa, Robert Kennedy, Deng Xiao-ping, James Farmer (U.S. Civil Rights leader), Henry Kissinger, Golda Meir, Yasser Arafat, King Hussein of Jordan, Indira Gandhi, Ali Bhutto, Mohammed Riza Pahlavi (former Shah of Iran), and Haile Selassie Fallaci actually preferred to be thought of as a writer and not a journalist, and her articles show this. When writing, she included her thoughts -- passions unhindered -- on the experience of interviewing her subject. In her interviews, Fallaci was never afraid to share her opinions, unafraid of her critics. Where many journalists choose not to take a stance, Fallaci's opinions are always part of her work. She strived to go beyond the apparent -- looking for and gaining revelations from her subjects. In each interview, The descriptions are vivid and colorful with no physical detail too small or inconsequential to notice. The reader feels as if he or she was there at the interview. Eloquent and articulate, politically minded and always opinionated, Fallaci's writing has been translated from Italian into English, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Greek, Swedish, Croatian, and many other languages.

Book Summary:

A posthumous compilation of this award-winning and best-selling writer and journalist’s seminal, historic interviews. Oriana Fallaci was granted access to countless world leaders and politicians throughout her remarkable career. Considering herself a writer rather than a journalist, she was never shy about sharing her opinions of her interview subjects. Her most memorable interviews—some translated into English for the first time—appear in this collection, including those with Ariel Sharon, Yassir Arafat, the former Shah of Iran, Lech Walesa, the Dalai Lama, Robert Kennedy, and many others. Also featured is the famous 1972 interview in which she succeeded in getting Henry Kissinger to call Vietnam a "useless war" and to describe himself as "a cowboy." To this day he calls the Fallaci interview "the most disastrous conversation I ever had with the press."

Book Summary:

We followed the ups and downs of their lives in the media. We know about their mistakes, their struggles, and their joys. But have you ever wondered how celebrities and public figures would reflect on their lives since they passed? In an unprecedented reading experience, Conversations with History sheds some light. Channeled by a psychic medium and written in interview format, this book takes readers on a unique journey with 22 spirits who were famous (or infamous) during their time on earth. Renowned personalities from 600 b.c. to 2011 a.d.—from Charlemagne, Ben Franklin, and Gandhi to Walt Disney, Kurt Vonnegut, and Steve Jobs—have returned to share their most important messages with us. Their passing led them to understand their life lessons and the ramifications of their choices. And now, with the clear-eyed vision gained only from the Other Side, they're taking center stage one last time to offer us insights into their lives that they didn't possess while they were here. These famous spirits open up to share the lessons they've learned since their passing in order to help us live our lives better—lessons in abundance and prosperity, love and relationships, creativity and art, personal responsibility for the world around us, and the legacy we will leave for future generations. In every interview, there are simple but powerful lessons that readers can use to improve their lives every day.

A revealing collection of interviews with one of the greatest artists in the history of rock ’n’ roll—as brilliant, punchy, and blustery as the man himself In this collection of powerful interviews given over thirty years—including his final interview—Lou Reed oscillates between losing patience with his interviewers (he was famous for walking out on them) and sharing profound observations on the human experience, especially as he reflects on poetry and novels, the joy of live performances, and the power of sound. In conversation with legendary rock critics and authors he respected, Reed’s interviews are as pithy and brilliant as the man himself. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Book Summary:

Women and Power in American History provides a coherent group of readings related to the unifying theme of power in women's lives over time. A greater understanding of how power inequalities are organized along gender lines can help us work toward a more egalitarian and just society. Because the work of the women's movement is far from complete, the need for a fuller historical understanding of how women's lives have changed over time remains great. This anthology brings together carefully selected, cutting-edge readings in U.S. Women's History--organized around issues related to gender and power in American society. The twenty-seven individual essays provide students with unifying themes that promote their understanding of women's history and changing gender relations. Both co-authors are highly visible in the field of women's history.
