Download and read online A Queer Thing Happened to America in PDF and EPUB Forty years ago, most Americans said they didn't know anyone who was homosexual and claimed to know little or nothing about homosexuality. A Queer Thing Happened to America chronicles the amazing transformation of America over the last 40 years, and addresses the question head-on: Is there really a gay agenda, or is it a fiction of the religious right? This could easily be the most controversial book of the decade.

Download and read online What a Long Strange Trip It s Been in PDF and EPUB In 1972, Kelley Culver was a newly married college dropout with few, if any, good prospects. Hoping to avoid the draft and Vietnam, which seemed the most likely course his life would take, Kelley enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. What started out as a short-term goal became a 23-year career. This book recounts many of the events that helped shape his career. From his beginnings as an Air Force airman, Kelley advances through the ranks to eventually retire as a major. Along the way, he finds himself in situations that are often funny, sometimes dark, but always realistic. A career that included service as an emergency room technician, nuclear missile operations officer, and commander of a squadron during Desert Shield/Storm, Kelleys story is full of interesting people and unexpected opportunities and shows that, with a little confidence in yourself, you can accomplish much more than you ever imagined.

Download and read online Thinking Small in PDF and EPUB Sometimes achieving big things requires the ability to think small. This simple concept was the driving force that propelled the Volkswagen Beetle to become an avatar of American-style freedom, a household brand, and a global icon. The VW Bug inspired the ad men of Madison Avenue, beguiled Woodstock Nation, and has recently been re-imagined for the hipster generation. And while today it is surely one of the most recognizable cars in the world, few of us know the compelling details of this car’s story. In Thinking Small, journalist and cultural historian Andrea Hiott retraces the improbable journey of this little car that changed the world. Andrea Hiott’s wide-ranging narrative stretches from the factory floors of Weimar Germany to the executive suites of today’s automotive innovators, showing how a succession of artists and engineers shepherded the Beetle to market through periods of privation and war, reconstruction and recovery. Henry Ford’s Model T may have revolutionized the American auto industry, but for years Europe remained a place where only the elite drove cars. That all changed with the advent of the Volkswagen, the product of a Nazi initiative to bring driving to the masses. But Hitler’s concept of “the people’s car” would soon take on new meaning. As Germany rebuilt from the rubble of World War II, a whole generation succumbed to the charms of the world’s most huggable automobile. Indeed, the story of the Volkswagen is a story about people, and Hiott introduces us to the men who believed in it, built it, and sold it: Ferdinand Porsche, the visionary Austrian automobile designer whose futuristic dream of an affordable family vehicle was fatally compromised by his patron Adolf Hitler’s monomaniacal drive toward war; Heinrich Nordhoff, the forward-thinking German industrialist whose management innovations made mass production of the Beetle a reality; and Bill Bernbach, the Jewish American advertising executive whose team of Madison Avenue mavericks dreamed up the legendary ad campaign that transformed the quintessential German compact into an outsize worldwide phenomenon. Thinking Small is the remarkable story of an automobile and an idea. Hatched in an age of darkness, the Beetle emerged into the light of a new era as a symbol of individuality and personal mobility—a triumph not of the will but of the imagination.

Download and read online They Knew They Were Right in PDF and EPUB From its origins in 1930s Marxism to its unprecedented influence on George W. Bush's administration, neoconservatism has become one of the most powerful, reviled, and misunderstood intellectual movements in American history. But who are the neocons, and how did this obscure group of government officials, pundits, and think-tank denizens rise to revolutionize American foreign policy?Political journalist Jacob Heilbrunn uses his intimate knowledge of the movement and its members to write the definitive history of the neoconservatives. He sets their ideas in the larger context of the decades-long battle between liberals and conservatives, first over communism, and now over the war on terrorism. And he explains why, in spite of their misguided policy on Iraq, they will remain a permanent force in American politics. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Download and read online What the Dormouse Said in PDF and EPUB Most histories of the personal computer industry focus on technology or business. John Markoff’s landmark book is about the culture and consciousness behind the first PCs—the culture being counter– and the consciousness expanded, sometimes chemically. It’s a brilliant evocation of Stanford, California, in the 1960s and ’70s, where a group of visionaries set out to turn computers into a means for freeing minds and information. In these pages one encounters Ken Kesey and the phone hacker Cap’n Crunch, est and LSD, The Whole Earth Catalog and the Homebrew Computer Lab. What the Dormouse Said is a poignant, funny, and inspiring book by one of the smartest technology writers around.
