Michael Shaara reinvented the war novel with his Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece of Gettysburg, The Killer Angels. Jeff Shaara continued his father’s legacy with a series of centuries-spanning New York Times bestsellers. Together at last in eBook form, this volume assembles three Civil War novels from America’s first family of military fiction: Gods and Generals, The Killer Angels, and The Last Full Measure. Gods and Generals traces the lives, passions, and careers of the great military leaders—Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, Winfield Scott Hancock, Joshua Chamberlain—from the gathering clouds of war. The Killer Angels re-creates the fight for America’s destiny in the Battle of Gettysburg, the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history. And The Last Full Measure brings to life the final two years of the Civil War, chasing the escalating conflict between Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant—complicated, heroic, and deeply troubled men—through to its riveting conclusion at Appomattox. Contains a preview Jeff Shaara’s new novel of the Civil War, A Blaze of Glory. Praise for Michael Shaara and Jeff Shaara’s Civil War trilogy “Brilliant does not even begin to describe the Shaara gift.”—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution “Shaara’s beautifully sensitive novel delves deeply in the empathetic realm of psycho-history, where enemies do not exist—just mortal men forced to make crucial decisions and survive on the same battlefield.”—San Francisco Chronicle, on Gods and Generals “Remarkable . . . a book that changed my life . . . I had never visited Gettysburg, knew almost nothing about that battle before I read the book, but here it all came alive.”—Ken Burns, on The Killer Angels “The Last Full Measure is more than another historical novel. It is rooted in history, but its strength is the element of humanity flowing through its characters. . . . The book is compelling, easy to read, well researched and written, and thought-provoking. . . . In short, it is everything that a reader could ask for.”—Chicago Tribune

Iris Barry (1895–1969) was a pivotal modern figure and one of the first intellectuals to treat film as an art form, appreciating its far-reaching, transformative power. Although she had the bearing of an aristocrat, she was the self-educated daughter of a brass founder and a palm-reader from the Isle of Man. An aspiring poet, Barry attracted the attention of Ezra Pound and joined a demimonde of Bloomsbury figures, including Ford Maddox Ford, T. S. Eliot, Arthur Waley, Edith Sitwell, and William Butler Yeats. She fell in love with Pound's eccentric fellow Vorticist, Wyndham Lewis, and had two children by him. In London, Barry pursued a career as a novelist, biographer, and critic of motion pictures. In America, she joined the modernist Askew Salon, where she met Alfred Barr, director of the new Museum of Modern Art. There she founded the museum's film department and became its first curator, assuring film's critical legitimacy. She convinced powerful Hollywood figures to submit their work for exhibition, creating a new respect for film and prompting the founding of the International Federation of Film Archives. Barry continued to augment MoMA's film library until World War II, when she joined the Office of Strategic Services to develop pro-American films with Orson Welles, Walt Disney, John Huston, and Frank Capra. Yet despite her patriotic efforts, Barry's "foreignness" and association with such filmmakers as Luis Buñuel made her the target of an anticommunist witch hunt. She eventually left for France and died in obscurity. Drawing on letters, memorabilia, and other documentary sources, Robert Sitton reconstructs Barry's phenomenal life and work while recasting the political involvement of artistic institutions in the twentieth century.

Der Kalte Krieg ist seit über zwanzig Jahren vorbei, doch das postsowjetische Russland sucht noch immer nach einer neuen Identität. Während man im Westen nach wie vor von der Gorbatschow-Zeit schwärmt, will man sie in Russland am liebsten vergessen. Inzwischen gilt Stalin dort vielen, auch unter den Jüngeren, wieder als großer Staatsmann, wie überhaupt die sozialistische Vergangenheit immer öfter nostalgisch verklärt wird. Für Swetlana Alexijewitsch leben die Russen gleichsam in einer Zeit des "secondhand", der gebrauchten Ideen und Worte. Wie ein vielstimmiger Chor erzählen die Menschen in ihrem neuen Buch von der radikalen gesellschaftlichen Umwälzung in den zurückliegenden Jahren.

Der internationale Spannungs-Bestseller des Jahres 2019. „Ein seltenes Juwel: der perfekte Thriller. Dieser außergewöhnliche Thriller hat mein Blut zum Kochen gebracht." A.J. Finn ( #1-New-York-Times-Bestseller-Autor von "The Woman in the Window") Blutüberströmt hat man die Malerin Alicia Berenson neben ihrem geliebten Ehemann gefunden – dem sie fünf Mal in den Kopf geschossen hat. Seit sieben Jahren sitzt die Malerin nun in einer geschlossenen psychiatrischen Anstalt. Und schweigt. Kein Wort hat sie seit der Nacht des Mordes verloren, lediglich ein Bild gemalt: Es zeigt sie selbst als Alkestis, die in der griechischen Mythologie ihr Leben gibt, um ihren Mann vor dem Tod zu bewahren. Fasziniert von ihrem Fall, setzt der forensische Psychiater Theo Faber alles daran, Alicia zum Sprechen zu bringen. Doch will der Psychiater wirklich nur herausfinden, was in jener Nacht geschehen ist? Einen exzellenten, psychologischen Thriller hat der Brite Alex Michaelides, hoch erfolgreicher Drehbuchautor von "The devil you know", mit "Die stumme Patientin" geschrieben. Eine internationale Thriller-Entdeckung, die Fans von "The woman in the window" oder "Gone girl" elektrisieren und überraschen wird. Hochkarätige Thriller-Autoren wie A.J. Finn, David Baldacci, Lee Child, Joanne Harris und Black Crouch sind sich sicher: hier kommt DIE Thriller-Entdeckung des Jahres 2019. "Ein exzellenter, psychologischer Thriller: Elegant, clever und mit einer Wendung, die mich komplett überrascht hat (und um mich zu überraschen, braucht es eine Menge!) Hut ab vor Alex Michaelides. Bitte mehr!" JOANNE HARRIS "Absolut brillant ... "Die stumme Patientin" hat mir aufregende, atemlose und intensive Lesestunden gebracht - wobei ich das Ende nie vorhersehen konnte - nicht eine Sekunde lang." STEPHEN FRY „Intelligentes, durchdachtes Storytelling plus Hochspannung – ein hervorragender Thriller in jeglicher Hinsicht.” LEE CHILD

9.5 Theses on Art and Class seeks to show how a clear understanding of class makes sense of what is at stake in a broad number of contemporary art's most persistent debates, from definitions of political art to the troubled status of "outsider" and street art to the question of how we maintain faith in art itself. Ben Davis currently lives and works in New York City where he is Executive Editor at Artinfo.
