The very idea of writing your biography would seem to be a bit daunting at first. There is no plot, no hero or heroine, just you, the main character, as the artist's brush to paint a picture of your life. Here in My Noble Beginning, Iris Saxon tells it how it is... just like that. This book reads almost like a novel with twists, turns and an amazingly colourful life. We are entertained by her travel experiences to nearly every corner of the planet, but, dear reader, in the words of Iris Saxon, 'I'm getting ahead of myself.'

"This book takes a chronological, film-by-film approach to all of Hammer's thrillers. Each chapter takes a particular theme around which to approach the films in question, exploring their literary ancestry, their reflection of British society and their relation to a wide range of other references, architectural metaphor, sexuality, religion, and even Nazi atrocities"--

The incredible story behind the founder of Noble & Noble and cofounder of Barnes & Noble comes to life in this compelling biography of G. Clifford Noble. From his humble beginnings as a poor country boy to the co-owner of the most prestigious bookstore chain in the country, The Noble Legacy celebrates the life of a true American icon. Already a budding entrepreneur at age twelve, Noble grew up in Massachusetts in the aftermath of the Civil War. Dedicated to his religious faith and driven to succeed, he graduated from Harvard with distinction and moved to New York City in the fall of 1886. His first job as a clerk at a small wholesale and retail bookstore ignited his passion for bookselling. Noble's amazing business sense propelled him to continued success, culminating in the establishment of two premier book companies, Barnes & Noble and Noble & Noble. Noble's granddaughter, Betty Noble Turner, pens a touching tribute to her grandfather and artfully captures his legacy. She also offers a historical dissertation on the origin and challenges of Noble's two companies, as well as a loving life story about the man himself.

Stelio Cro’s revealing work, arising from his more than half dozen previous books, considers the eighteenth-century Enlightenment in the context of the European experience with, and reaction to, the cultures of America’s original inhabitants. Taking into account Spanish, Italian, French, and English sources, the author describes how the building materials for Rousseau’s allegory of the Noble Savage came from the early Spanish chroniclers of the discovery and conquest of America, the Jesuit Relations of the Paraguay Missions (a Utopia in its own right), the Essais of Montaigne, Italian Humanism, Shakespeare’s Tempest, writers of Spain’s Golden Age, Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, and the European philosophes.

Solomon Schechter (1847–1915), the charismatic leader of New York's Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS), came to America in 1902 intent on revitalizing traditional Judaism. While he advocated a return to traditional practices, Schechter articulated no clear position on divisive issues, instead preferring to focus on similarities that could unite American Jewry under a broad message. Michael R. Cohen demonstrates how Schechter, unable to implement his vision on his own, turned to his disciples, rabbinical students and alumni of JTS, to shape his movement. By midcentury, Conservative Judaism had become the largest American Jewish grouping in the United States, guided by Schechter's disciples and their continuing efforts to embrace diversity while eschewing divisive debates. Yet Conservative Judaism's fluid boundaries also proved problematic for the movement, frustrating many rabbis who wanted a single platform to define their beliefs. Cohen demonstrates how a legacy of tension between diversity and boundaries now lies at the heart of Conservative Judaism's modern struggle for relevance. His analysis explicates four key claims: that Conservative Judaism's clergy, not its laity or Seminary, created and shaped the movement; that diversity was—and still is—a crucial component of the success and failure of new American religions; that the Conservative movement's contemporary struggle for self-definition is tied to its origins; and that the porous boundaries between Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform Judaism reflect the complexity of the American Jewish landscape—a fact that Schechter and his disciples keenly understood. Rectifying misconceptions in previous accounts of Conservative Judaism's emergence, Cohen's study enables a fresh encounter with a unique religious phenomenon.
