Essays on authors whose works range from the traditional or reactionary, to the experimental. During this time, the "problem novel" gained ground. Competition from other media, such as the television, influenced the juvenile-book market. During this period a publishers' group was formed to give serious thought to the direction in which juvenile books should go.

F. Scott Fitzgerald: Der große Gatsby, Neuausgabe 2018 || Wir befinden uns an der Ostküste der USA, im Jahr 1922. Es ist die aufregende Zeit der "Roaring Twenties", als in New York Wolkenkratzer aus dem Boden wachsen und die Menschen lebenshungrig den Tanz auf dem Vulkan üben. Auf Long Island lebt man in mondäner Dekadenz, die harten Seiten des Lebens haben hier keinen Platz. Der junge Börsenmakler Nick Carraway bezieht auf der Halbinsel, die New York vorgelagert ist, ein kleines Haus, das er sich mit seinem schmalen Salär gerade noch leisten kann. In der Villa seines Nachbarn werden alle paar Tage monströse Partys mit Hunderten von Gästen gefeiert; der Gastgeber aber, ein gewisser Gatsby, bleibt im Hintergrund. Doch eines Tages steht Gatsby mit seinem riesigen Wagen vor Carraways Häuschen und bittet ihn wenig später um einen merkwürdigen Gefallen ... || Fitzgeralds Kultbuch wurde mehrmals verfilmt, u. a. 1974 mit Robert Redford und 2013 mit Leonardo DiCaprio als Gatsby.

The "War to End All Wars" did not begin as a popular cause. Americans were reluctant to get involved in what they viewed as Europe's war and reelected Woodrow Wilson on his promise to keep this nation out of it. When war became inevitable, public opinion had to be turned around. To do this, the government mobilized the talents of an incredible cadre of artists to create "pictorial publicity" for all aspects of the war effort -- from recruiting to war relief to food and fuel conservation. Artists of the caliber of James Montgomery Flagg, Howard Chandler Christy, Charles Dana Gibson, J. C. Leyendecker, and N. C Wyeth produced an impressive -- even magnificent -- body of art, yet all but a handful of these posters have been almost totally forgotten. In this handsome volume, historian Walton Rawls combines a stirring popular history of America's role in World War I with a remarkable collection of posters that boldly demonstrate their artistic worth. The text, while providing ample art-historical background, concentrates on the all-absorbing historical and political context in which the posters were created. The result is a fascinating look at these artifacts, which can be appreciated today both as graphic masterworks and as illustrations of a tragic historical episode.

Inspector Lynleys fünfter Fall in neuer Ausstattung. An einem trüben Novembermorgen wird eine Studentin der Universität Cambridge tot aufgefunden. Der Mord an der jungen Frau erschüttert die ehrbare Akademikerwelt. Und nur einer wie Inspector Lynley, der dieses Umfeld bestens kennt, kann die gefährlichen unterschwelligen Strömungen hinter den dunklen Collegemauern erahnen. Mit seiner Assistentin Barbara Havers dringt er immer tiefer in die elitäre Welt ein, in ein tödliches Gespinst aus bedingungsloser Liebe, falschem Stolz, uneingestandenen Schuldgefühlen – und dem Bedürfnis nach Rache.
