My Love Affair with America by Norman Podhoretz

ISBN 0743205766
Language English, Spanish, and French

Book Summary:

In this touching and delightful memoir, Norman Podhoretz charts the ups and downs of his lifelong love affair with his native land, and warns that to turn against America, from the Right no less than from the Left, is to fall into the rankest ingratitude. While telling the story of how he himself grew up to be a fervent patriot, one of this country's leading conservative thinkers urges his fellow conservatives to rediscover and reclaim their faith in America. A superb storyteller, Podhoretz takes us from his childhood as a working-class kid in Brooklyn during the Great Depression -- the son of Jewish immigrants singing Catholic hymns in a public school staffed by Irish spinsters and duking it out on the streets with his black and Italian classmates -- to his later education, his shifting political alliances, and his arrival at a happy personal and intellectual resolution. My Love Affair with America shows us a gentler and funnier Podhoretz than readers have seen before. At the same time, it presents a picture of someone eager to proclaim, against all comers, that America represents one of the high points in the history of human civilizations. In this powerful, elegantly written, and poignant cautionary tale, Podhoretz pleads with his fellow conservatives not to fall, as some have lately done, into their own special brand of anti-Americanism, as he reminds them of the disastrous consequences that followed the assault by the New Left against the United States in decades gone by. Warm in feeling and brilliantly perceptive, My Love Affair with America points the way back to a thoroughly unabashed love of country -- the kind of patriotism that has rarely been encountered in recent years and that is as invigorating as it is inspiring.

Total Pages 148
ISBN 1463437501
Language English, Spanish, and French

Book Summary:

The book is not only a history of development of wireless communication, or the radio, as it was later named. It also presents portraits of fascinating visionaries, experimenters and scientists and the stories of their successes and failures. The history begins as a race between inventors, but later becames a race chiefly between corporations. Even today, there are a great number of contradictory opinions and common beliefs regarding the fatherhood of the wireless. At the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, the exchange of information was slow and unreliable. Many talented individuals worked concurrently in different parts of the world, trying to develop the same wireless apparatus and not knowing that they already had competitors. Sometimes, inflated egos undermined their success. Some of the inventors lacked integrity. Legal battles ensued. So, who was the first at the finish line? To determine who was the winner of the race for wireless, or who can be named the "father of the wireless," substantial amounts of historical and political background as well as a thorough analysis of inventions are included in this book. The story is based on published memoirs and papers, encyclopedias, and countless historical and technical materials in the public domain. In many cases it was necessary to filter out the emotional biases (of traditional or national origin) of the source material and to seek the correct chronology of discoveries. The author uses published patents - their dates of issue, technical claims and drawings - as the ultimate source of judgment. In the appendix, "The Vacuum Tube Sound," the author compares the quality of sound amplified by a vacuum tube amplifier with the quality of sound amplified by modern semiconductor amplifiers. What are the differences, if any? The answer may surprise you.

Book Summary:

Imagine travelling from Europe to the Canadian wilderness in 1926 to marry a man you’ve never met. Imagine carving out a life beyond civilization in the northern forest and lake country of British Columbia. Imagine the hard, backbreaking work. Imagine the privation that can drive you away or drive you mad. Imagine loving the adventure in this young, wild land, only to be told after twenty years that you’re going to be flooded out by your government. Isa Luise Essler is a German writer and intellectual. She immigrated to Canada to marry the trapper and prospector, Wil See. It is now 1946, the Second World War is over and “progress” is king. Because of this post-war mindset Isa Luise and Wil are fighting the fight of their lives. While trying to keep the Nechako Dam Project from flooding their valley, Isa Luise is also corresponding with the incarcerated American poet, Ezra Pound. Wildnis is about strength, survival and civil disobedience: the strength of character to abandon all you know for the unknown; the ability to survive isolation and hardship; and the vision to fight for your rights. This novel was inspired by the life of Else Lücke-Seel. (1894–1973).
