By: Timothy Stanley

Price: $10.95

Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books, 2014


Thomas Dunne Books, Hardcover, 2014, Book Condition: New, Jacket Condition: New. To most Americans, Hollywood activism consists of self-obsessed movie stars promoting their pet causes, whether defending marijuana legalization or Second Amendment rights. There's some truth in that stereotype, and in this book you'll find the close personal friends of Fidel Castro, the wannabe cowboys, and the ever-ubiquitous Barbra Streisand. But Citizen Hollywood makes a far more serious... View more info

Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe... It is through the eye of the stills camera that we experience and recall some of the cinema's most memorable events and faces.

How We Got Here: The 70's: The Decade that Brought You Modern Life (For Better or Worse)

By: David Frum

Price: $7.95

Publisher: Basic Books, 0


For many, the 1970s evoke the Brady Bunch and the birth of disco. In this first, thematic popular history of the decade, David Frum argues that it was the 1970s, not the 1960s, that created modern America and altered the American personality forever.

Frum examines this metamor... View more info
