О русском воровстве, душе и долготерпении артикул 1905a.

Национальная русская черта с давних пор - даже не со времен Карамзина и с его "Воруют-с…", а еще раньше, с эпохи кормлений - это всеобщее воровство, коррупция и взятничество овакд И любой их всплеск - не что-то уникальное, а лишь продолжение старинной национальной традиции Почему власть это терпит? Да потому что сама в этом активно участвует А главное, потому что терпит это народ Русский народ долготерпелив и "вынесет" все Все это вместе взятое отличает нас и от Запада, и от Востока Умом нас не понять Измерять - тоже дело бесперспективное Таковы особенности нашей национальной охоты, рыбалки и пр - в общем, национального характера Такая уж у нас загадочня русская душа И последнее С нашей созерцательной православной духовностью, наложенной на лень и разгильдяйство, за всю свою историю ничего нормального в технократическом плане создать якобы мы не могли Вот тезисы, с которыми в этой книге автор спорит Автор доказывает, что если так отчасти и есть сейчас, это совсем не значит, что так было всегда И что по-другому быть не может Читайте, думайте, спорьте Автор Владимир Мединский Место рождения: г Смела Черкасской обл Украинской ССР 1987-1992 - окончил с отличием факультет международной журналистики МГИМО МИД РФ, 1991-1992 - Пресс-служба посольства СССР (РФ) в США, г Вашингтон, стажер пресс-службы, 1992 -.  Серия: Мифы о России.

Why Arnold Matters: The Rise of a Cultural Icon артикул 1909a.

How Arnold Schwarzenegger has shifted the entire American cultural and political landscape, how he--and we--got there, and why we all should care After nearly thirty years in the public eye, Arnold Schwarzenegger's rise to fame and fortune--and statesmanship--represents a celebrity the likes of which we've never seen before As co-authors овакц and longtime collaborators Blitz and Krasniewicz argue in this humorous but heady book, it is not just a matter of his transformation from bodybuilder to megastar to politician Nor is his governorship of California just a matter of another actor assuming the position Instead, at the beginning of the 21st century, "Arnoldness" has spread into every corner of our culture More than a name, more than a spectacular career, he has become a set of ideas--an ultramodern take on the quintessential American dream Having followed the cult of Arnold for twenty years, Blitz and Krasniewicz are uniquely qualified to illuminate his growing hold on our collective imagination As an adjective, as a metaphor, as an easy reference point for anyone talking about things tough, forceful, and successful, they'll explain exactly why Arnold matters--and for better or worse, richer or poorer, America may never be the same Автор Майкл Блитц Michael Blitz.  Издательство: Basic Books, 2004 г Твердый переплет, 224 стр ISBN 0465037526.

Neon Boneyard: Las Vegas A-Z артикул 1904a.
Neon Boneyard: Las Vegas A-Z артикул 1904a.

The garish glow of neon was part of what put Las Vegas on the map—quite literally The city’s most distinctive form of expression, neon signs tell an elaborate story of the history of Las Vegas, from their debut in 1929 at the onset of the Depression, when their seductive tones lured travelers through the Mojave Desert to part with scarce dollars, овакб to today, when their flickering glow is a vanishing facet of the gaudy spectacle that is contemporary Vegas Established in 1996 to preserve Las Vegas’s underappreciated neon heritage, the Neon Boneyard houses many of the city's historic casino signs on a three-acre site at the edge of the city The core of the collection of unrestored signage came from the pioneering Young Electric Sign Company, one of the first to produce neon signs in the area; but, in recent years, it has grown through donations from businesses and individuals who appreciate the key role played by neon in the growth of Las Vegas Through Judy Natal’s photographs, the Neon Boneyard becomes a dynamic archaeological site that brings Vegas’s past to life in startling ways The towering figure of Mr O’Lucky becomes a home for the homeless, while the crumpled sign of a wedding chapel reflects the faded dreams of a lost paradise Through such juxtapositions of success and failure, of past and present, Neon Boneyard: Las Vegas A–Z returns us to an earlier image of Vegas, suffused with the warm, commercial glow of neon, lighting the desert and inventing modern nightlife.  2006 г Твердый переплет, 88 стр ISBN 1930066562.
