"You can't beat this story for drama. . . . An omnibus of everything ever known, spoken, or written about Doc Holliday." -Publishers Weekly «An engagingly written, persuasively argued, solidly documented work of scholarship that will surely take its place in the literature of the Old West.» -Booklist In Doc Holliday: The Life and Legend, the historian Gary Roberts takes aim at the most complex, perplexing, and paradoxical gunfighter of the Old West, drawing on more than twenty years of research-including new primary sources-in his quest to separate the life from the legend. Doc Holliday was a study in contrasts: the legendary gunslinger who made his living as a dentist; the emaciated consumptive whose very name struck fear in the hearts of his enemies; the degenerate gambler and alcoholic whose fierce loyalty to his friends compelled him, more than once, to risk his own life; and the sidekick whose near-mythic status rivals that of the West's greatest heroes. With lively details of Holliday's spirited exploits, his relationships with such Western icons as Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson, and the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, this book sheds new light on one of the most mysterious figures of frontier history.

Shaw George Bernard Pygmalion. My Fair Lady

805 руб.
The ancient Greeks tell the legend of the sculptor Pygmalion, who created a statue of a woman of such surpassing beauty that he fell in love with his own creation. Then, Aphrodite, taking pity on this man whose love could not reach beyond the barrier of stone, brought the statue to life and gave her to Pygmalion as his bride. Centuries later, George Bernard Shaw captured the magic of this legend in his celebrated romantic play, Pygmalion. Pygmalion became Henry Higgins, a professor of phonetics, his statue an untutored flower girl from the streets of London, and the barrier between them the difference in their stations in life.In My Fair Lady, Alan Jay Lerner takes the legend one step further--the barrier is swept away and Higgins and Eliza are reunited as the curtain falls on one of the loveliest musical plays of our time-winning seven Tonys(R) for its original Broadway production, and seven Oscars(R) for its film adaptation.

A story-telling competition between a group of pilgrims from all walks of life is the occasion for a series of tales that range from the Knight's account of courtly love and the ebullient Wife of Bath's Arthurian legend, to the ribald anecdotes of the Miller and the Cook.

Christopher Hibbert Napoleon: His Wives and Women

112.8 руб.
A masterly biography of Napoleon, concentrating on his private life, by the historian described by Stella Tillyard as ‘a master portraitist of great men’s private lives’ and by Amanda Foreman as ‘one of England’s greatest living historical writers’.Modern history has produced one single myth on a heroic scale to rival those of Alexander and Caesar – that of Napoleon. The continuing fascination of this astonishingly gifted man is reflected in the number of books published each year on various aspects of the Napoleonic legend: some 250,000 volumes in all since Napoleon’s mysterious death in 1821.What is still needed is now provided by Christopher Hibbert: an authoritative up-to-date account of Napoleon’s private life at all stages of his developing and extraordinary career, based on the fruits of modern research, his character, interests and tastes, his friendships, enmities and love affairs, his relations with the members of his remarkable family, the impressions he made on his contemporaries away from the council chamber and the battlefield, his personal life at war, in exile and as emperor in peacetime, the mystery surrounding his death: in short, the man revealed behind the soldier, statesman and legend.

Tolkien John Ronald Reuel The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun

1049 руб.
Unavailable for more than 70 years, this early but important work is published for the first time with Tolkien's 'Corrigan' poems and other supporting material, including a prefatory note by Christopher Tolkien. Set 'In Britain's land beyond the seas' during the Age of Chivalry, The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun tells of a childless Breton Lord and Lady ('Aotrou' and 'Itroun') and the tragedy that befalls them when Aotrou seeks to remedy their situation with the aid of a magic potion obtained from a corrigan, or malevolent fairy. When the potion succeeds and Itroun bears twins, the corrigan returns seeking her fee, and Aotrou is forced to choose between betraying his marriage and losing his life. Coming from the darker side of J.R.R. Tolkien's imagination, The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun, together with the two shorter 'Corrigan' poems that lead up to it and are also included here, was the outcome of a comparatively short but intense period in Tolkien's life when he was deeply engaged with Celtic, and particularly Breton, myth and legend. Written in 1930, this early but seminal work is an important addition to the non-Middle-earth portion of his canon alongside Tolkien's other retellings of myth and legend, The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, The Fall of Arthur and The Story of Kullervo, a small but important corpus of his ventures into 'real-world' mythologies, each of which would be a formative inuence on his own legendarium.

Justine Picardie has spent the last decade puzzling over the truth about Coco Chanel, attempting to peel away the accretions of romance and lies. In this critically acclaimed, bestselling biography she shares the history of the incredible woman who created the way we look now.Coco Chanel was an extraordinary inventor – she conjured up the little black dress, bobbed hair, trousers for women, contemporary chic, best-selling perfumes, and the most successful fashion brand of all time – but she also invented herself, fashioning the myth of her own life with the same dexterity as her couture.While Chanel was supreme innovator and vendor of all things elegant and beautiful, what lies beneath her own glossy myth is far darker.

Praise for the First Edition of Quantitative Business Valuation A Mathematical Approach for Today's Professionals «Jay Abrams' book is close to the equivalent of several graduate dissertations rolled into one book. For each topic (covered), he presents a scholarly summary of past research, new empirical research of his own, and his conclusions. It is a well-documented contribution to in-depth understanding of important business valuation issues, and should not be overlooked by the serious practitioner.» —Shannon Pratt, DBAManaging Director, Willamette Management AssociatesCoauthor, Valuing a Business «A must-read for the serious business appraiser.» —Jay E. Fishman, ASA, CBAPresident, Financial Research, Inc. «The problem of simplified valuation procedures and coherent theory still remains complex and is ever evolving. Jay Abrams deals very effectively with this complexity through the use of mathematical formulas. Input to his models is explained with clarity and effectiveness, which adds to the overall value of this advanced text on business valuation.» —Terry A. Isom, Chairman, National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts «Jay Abrams' book strives to provide mathematical modeling for what practitioners often do by reasoning alone. This book is a must-read for practitioners who are searching for additional techniques for dealing with some of business valuation's imponderables.» —David M. Bishop, FIBA, BVAL, ASA, MCBAPresident, American Business Appraisers, Inc. «Jay Abrams' book will not only challenge the top theoreticians in the field; his step-by-step explanations will make advanced quantitative techniques available to the many appraisers who are not capable of independently creating the underlying mathematical analysis.» —Kent Osborne, ASAChairman, Editorial Review Board of the American Society of Appraisers «While a proliferation of business valuation treatises and guides exists in the market, most are very general in nature and do nothing more than rehash fundamental concepts. I am unaware of any author who has stepped into the unknown as Jay Abrams has and compiled and developed a treatise of extremely useful analytical tools for the serious valuator.» —Robert J. Grossman, CPA/ABV, ASA, CVAPartner, Grossman Yanak & Ford «Jay Abrams develops unusual approaches which merit consideration when 'cookie cutter' methodologies are inadequate. This manuscript contributes to the dialogue among practitioners and strengthens the theoretical foundations of business valuation.» —Herbert T. SpiroPresident, American Valuation Group, Inc. «There is no question about it, the use of rigorous quantitative methods is the cure for subjective valuation analysis. This book not only satisfies this need—which has grown considerably in recent years—but is chock-full of new tools that have been carefully developed.» —Edward MurrayValuation Partner, Arthur Andersen, LLP

Paul Preston The Last Stalinist: The Life of Santiago Carrillo

457.3 руб.
The life of the complex, ruthless adversary of General Franco, whose life spanned much of Spain’s turbulence in the 20th century.From 1939 to 1975, the Spanish Communist Party, effectively lead for two decades by Santiago Carrillo, was the most determined opponent of General Franco’s Nationalist regime. Admired by many on the left as a revolutionary and a pillar of the anti-Franco struggle and hated by others as a Stalinist gravedigger of the revolution, Santiago Carrillo was arguably the dictator’s most consistent left-wing enemy.For many on the right, Carrillo was a monster to be vilified as a mass murderer for his activities during the Civil War. But his survival owed to certain qualities that he had in abundance – a capacity for hard work, stamina and endurance, writing and oratorical skills, intelligence and cunning – though honesty and loyalty were not among them.One by one he turned on those who helped him in his desire for advancement, revealing the ruthless streak that he shared with Franco, and a zeal for rewriting his past. Drawing on the numerous, continuously revised accounts Carillo created of his life, and contrasting them with those produced by his friends and enemies, Spain’s greatest modern historian Paul Preston unravels the legend of a devastating and controversial figure at the heart of 20th century Spanish politics.

The dramatic true-life story of George Hogg, a young Oxford graduate who is caught up in the Japanese invasion of China in 1937 and the Chinese Civil war, and who leads a group of Chinese children hundreds of miles across 15,000-foot mountains to safety – only to die tragically in early 1945.The author, James MacManus, was working as a reporter in Shanghai in 1980s when he heard talk of a statue being up in the remote town of Shandon on the Mongolian border in memory of an Englishman called George Hogg. This book is the result of his investigations – and the basis for a major feature film called 'The Children of Huang Shi', directed by Roger Spottiswoode and starring Jonathan Rhys Myers, to be released in spring 2008.One westerner who lived in China throughout the Cultural Revolution described Hogg as «an outstanding young Englishman who fell in love with foreign people and devoted his life to their betterment. What he did made him deeply and widely loved.»MacManus has been back to China to interview the surviving old boys of Hogg's school. Hogg's reputation is kept alive by their loyalty to this day.The dramatic trajectory of Hogg's life took him within a few months from a privileged existence at Oxford to life on the run from Japanese secret police in China.

Praise for the First Edition of Quantitative Business Valuation A Mathematical Approach for Today's Professionals «Jay Abrams' book is close to the equivalent of several graduate dissertations rolled into one book. For each topic (covered), he presents a scholarly summary of past research, new empirical research of his own, and his conclusions. It is a well-documented contribution to in-depth understanding of important business valuation issues, and should not be overlooked by the serious practitioner.» —Shannon Pratt, DBAManaging Director, Willamette Management AssociatesCoauthor, Valuing a Business «A must-read for the serious business appraiser.» —Jay E. Fishman, ASA, CBAPresident, Financial Research, Inc. «The problem of simplified valuation procedures and coherent theory still remains complex and is ever evolving. Jay Abrams deals very effectively with this complexity through the use of mathematical formulas. Input to his models is explained with clarity and effectiveness, which adds to the overall value of this advanced text on business valuation.» —Terry A. Isom, Chairman, National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts «Jay Abrams' book strives to provide mathematical modeling for what practitioners often do by reasoning alone. This book is a must-read for practitioners who are searching for additional techniques for dealing with some of business valuation's imponderables.» —David M. Bishop, FIBA, BVAL, ASA, MCBAPresident, American Business Appraisers, Inc. «Jay Abrams' book will not only challenge the top theoreticians in the field; his step-by-step explanations will make advanced quantitative techniques available to the many appraisers who are not capable of independently creating the underlying mathematical analysis.» —Kent Osborne, ASAChairman, Editorial Review Board of the American Society of Appraisers «While a proliferation of business valuation treatises and guides exists in the market, most are very general in nature and do nothing more than rehash fundamental concepts. I am unaware of any author who has stepped into the unknown as Jay Abrams has and compiled and developed a treatise of extremely useful analytical tools for the serious valuator.» —Robert J. Grossman, CPA/ABV, ASA, CVAPartner, Grossman Yanak & Ford «Jay Abrams develops unusual approaches which merit consideration when 'cookie cutter' methodologies are inadequate. This manuscript contributes to the dialogue among practitioners and strengthens the theoretical foundations of business valuation.» —Herbert T. SpiroPresident, American Valuation Group, Inc. «There is no question about it, the use of rigorous quantitative methods is the cure for subjective valuation analysis. This book not only satisfies this need—which has grown considerably in recent years—but is chock-full of new tools that have been carefully developed.» —Edward MurrayValuation Partner, Arthur Andersen, LLP
