Home: A Memoir of My Early Years

Editura: Hyperion Books

Anul aparitiei: 2009

Since her first appearance on screen in Mary Poppins, Julie Andrews has played a series of memorable roles that have endeared her to generations. But she has never told the story of her life before fame. Until now. In Home: A Memoir of My Early Years, Julie takes her readers on a warm, moving, and often humorous journey from a difficult upbringing in war-torn Britain to the brink of international stardom in America. Her memoir begins in 1935, when Julie was born to an aspiring vaudevillian mother and a teacher father, and takes readers to 1962, when Walt Disney himself saw her on Broadway and cast her as the world's most famous nanny. Along the way, she weathered the London Blitz of World War II; her parents' painful divorce; her mother's turbulent second marriage to Canadian tenor Ted Andrews, and a childhood spent on radio, in music halls, and giving concert performances all over England. Julie's professional career began at the age of twelve, and in 1948 she became the youngest solo performer ever to participate in a Royal Command Performance before the Queen. When only eighteen, she left home for the United States to make her Broadway debut in The Boy Friend, and thus began her ...

The Flying McCoys: Comics for a Bold New World

Editura: ANDREWS & MCMEEL

Anul aparitiei: 2006

This zany strip enters the comic-collection scene with circus-like zeal. All that's missing is a parade of elephants and a clown-car escort.Gary and Glenn McCoy's delightfully absurd comic panel blends superheroes, office humor, huggable animals, and twisted relationships in a bizarre marriage of Gary Larson, the New Yorker, Conan O'Brien, and Mad Magazine. Put succinctly, the brothers McCoy present "comics for a bold new world." Creating a world where greeting cards heal hospital patients, police officers pull over children driving bumper cars, babies use the patch to quell the pacifier habit, and nudists find out what constitutes a streaker in their colony, the St. Louis area natives alternate writing and drawing duties for the daily panel.The brothers each have been nominated for multiple National Cartoonists Society awards, and Glenn has won in three categories. Gary McCoy's past as a comedian (he won HBO's Stand-Up Stand-Off contest for the St. Louis area in 1995) also shines through in the strip's offbeat humor.Their impressive freelance client list reads like a who's who in cartooning: Disney, DreamWorks, and Hyperion, to name just a few. ...

Invincible: My Journey from Fan to NFL Team Captain

Editura: HYPERION BOOKS

Anul aparitiei: 2006

The true story of the NFL's oldest rookie In 1976, Vince Papale was thirty, a former schoolteacher and part-time bartender, and a season ticket-holder for his beloved Philadelphia Eagles. When he heard that Coach Dick Vermeil was holding open tryouts, he decided to give it a shot. Shocking himself and the coaches, he ran an explosive 40-yard-dash in just 4.5 seconds -- a world-class time -- and was offered a contract on the spot. When he joined the team, Papale became the oldest non-kicking rookie in NFL history, a fan favorite who played for four years and was named a team captain. Invincible is Vince Papale's story, and a tie-in to the Disney Pictures film of the same name starring Mark Wahlberg as Papale and Greg Kinnear as Vermeil. But more than just a tie-in, it tells Papale's story in his own words, covering subjects not included in the film. Like Rudy , Glory Road , and Rookie , it is the true story of an ordinary man who achieves an extraordinary goal.

Anul aparitiei: 2015

La presente edición, quizás la primera que se publica en este siglo, tiene como objetivo revisitar un clásico de suma importancia del periodo colonial novohispano: México en 1554 de Francisco Cervantes de Salazar. Esta obra, además de considerarse una de las crónicas más detalladas de lo que hoy es la Ciudad de México, es un texto seminal sobre los orígenes de la educación superior en el México colonial. En este importante texto, Cervantes de Salazar narra y describe con lujo de detalle no sólo la vida universitaria de la Nueva España, sino que nos habla también de sus cátedras, profesores, aulas, pasillos, y en fin, nos proporciona la historia material de los momentos clave de los orígenes de la Real y Pontificia Universidad de México. Asimismo, presenta una crónica de la Ciudad de México, sus costumbres, su gente, sus calles, entre otras cosas. El género narrativo elegido por Cervantes de Salazar es el de los diálogos muy a la usanza latina de aquella época, siguiendo el estilo y el modelo de grandes latinistas europeos del siglo XVI.

How George Rogers Clark Won the Northwest: And Other Essays in Western History

Editura: DISNEY-HYPERION

Anul aparitiei: 2014

George Rogers Clark's expedition was of immense importance to both the United States and Canada. But for him, Canada's border arguably would be much further south. His younger brother William, in partnership with Meriwether Lewis is perhaps better known for an adventure that gave Americans a continental vision. However, the winning of the Northwest can be laid at the door of George Rogers. This volume is but a sample of the prodigious work of Reuben Gold Thwaites (1853-1913), who enormously increased the collections of the Wisconsin Historical Society as its director, edited 73 volumes of Jesuit activity in North America, produced an eight volume set of the journals of Lewis and Clark, and wrote a cornucopia of essays about America's expansion westward, not only producing his own titles but busily collecting documents for generations of future historians to build upon.

Hymns to the Gods & Other Poems

Editura: DISNEY-HYPERION

Anul aparitiei: 2014

Albert Pike (1809-1891) began writing as a youth, and "Hymns to the Gods" was his first published poem when he was only 23. He subsequently became a contributor to Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine after his book, Prose Sketches and Poems Written in the Western Country, appeared in 1834.Then, in 1872, he published an extended collection, Hymns to the Gods and Other Poems. An admirer of the work of Shelley and Cooleridge, he in turn was admired by Edgar Allan Poe. He is primarily remembered as perhaps the leading scholar of Freemasonry in the nineteenth century but quite apart from that his verses display his incredible linguistic skills and knowledge of mythology. He is always struggling for synthesis, believing, "the great aim is to discover unity in multiplicity". This is key to both his poetry and to the many degrees of Freemasonry that he revised and embellished.

Eugene Floyd DuBois (1882-1959) studied medicine at Columbia after doing his undergraduate work at Harvard and graduating in 1903. At Harvard he was business editor of the Harvard Lampoon, the humor magazine, and rowed. He had a lifelong avocational interest in music but as professor of medicine at Cornell was the author of many important research papers and was medical director of the Russell Sage Institute, an active member of the National Academy of Sciences, and received some of the highest honors that American medicine could confer, including the Kober and Banting Medals. He received the Navy Cross in World War I for dangerous undersea work and maintained a longtime connection with the Navy and in submarine medicine. The collection he gathered as a young student preserves the enthusiasm of another era. Tom Lehrer later made fun of such Harvard songs with his lyrics for "Fight Fiercely, Harvard" Fight fiercely, Harvard, Fight, fight, fight! Demonstrate to them our skill.

Frederick Sadleir Brereton (1852-1957) was a prolific author of children's books, writing over forty tales of heroism. He served in the Royal Army Medical Corps during World War I. Brereton wrote a variety of stories, such as With Rifle and Bayonet: A Story of the Boer War (1900) and Under the Star-Spangled Banner: A Tale of the Spanish-American War (1905), most of which focused on conflicts around the world. Indian and Scout is his imagining of the California Gold Rush. The California Gold Rush really was a bonanza. Between 1849 and 1855 the miners gathered more than $400 million dollars; once adjusted, it is a sum today reaching into the trillions. It was a social phenomenon marked by the carnivalesque. In his work Roughing It (1872) Mark Twain's protagonist remarks as his brother heads West, "Pretty soon he would be hundreds and hundreds of miles away on the great plains and deserts, and among the mountains of the Far West, and would see buffaloes and Indians, and prairie dogs, an antelopes, and have all kinds of adventures, and may be get hanged or scalped, and have ever such a fine time, and write home and tell us all about it, and be a hero...And by and by he would become ...

Arthur M. Winfield was the pseudonym of Edward L. Stratemeyer, who was an incredibly prolific writer. He collaborated in writing over 1,300 books, selling more than 500 million copies. He was behind several incredibly popular juvenile fiction series such as The Bobbsey Twins, The Hardy Boys and the Nancy Drew series. To create so many titles, he developed the Stratemeyer Syndicate, a book-packaging technique. Utilizing a series of freelance writers, editors, proofreaders, and others, all working on long-running series using the same characters in a formulaic structure, the Stratemeyer Syndicate was able to produce millions of books. What helped the Stratemeyer Syndicate stand out was that it was the first book packager to focus on children's literature. The Schooldays of Fred Harley is part of the 1897 Bright and Bold Series, written by Edward Stratemeyer under the pseudonym of Arthur M. Winfield. Stratemeyer used a variety of pseudonyms because he found that the titles sold better when believed to be written by a variety of people. Works like The Schooldays of Fred Harley are representative of popular children's literature during the first quarter of the 20th century because the ...

Los que juzgan el movimiento social y político de México a través de las doctrinas recientes se encuentran generalmente con dificultades teóricas insalvables. No saben que los fenómenos característicos de la revolución fueron ya los motivos determinantes de las luchas por la emancipación a comienzos del siglo XIX. El autor de este libro ha dispuesto de informaciones acabadas sobre la historia primitiva de la nación mexicana, y de la mezcla de ellas con los documentos más recientes emanados de los líderes revolucionarios de hoy, ha podido obtener una obra en la cual se agotan las observaciones. Benévolo para juzgar a los revolucionarios, no se ocultan, sin embargo, las dificultades de la tarea, y en las páginas de Mexico en Marcha se hallarán no pocas de las interrogaciones que se ha formulado más de una vez el hombre de la calle, en presencia de hechos que para el no interiorizado resultan inexplicables. Es una obra ardiente, entusiasta, escrita con claridad y buen método expositivo. Es una obra que hacía falta no solo en Chile, sino en todo el continente americano.

Ritual and Secrecy Confront Reality: Vol.2 No. 1 of Ritual, Secrecy and Civil Society

Editura: DISNEY-HYPERION

Anul aparitiei: 2014

This special issue of Ritual, Secrecy and Civil Society, among other things, questions and explores the ways in which the secret initiatory societies interface with political and social history. It would be a great mistake to think that organizations such as Freemasonry are confined to metaphorics and mythologies. Through the years, as the articles in these pages make clear, rule by ritual is more the norm than the exception. Rather than by gunpowder, many moments in history have been determined by the cadences of rite and ritual. Flags carry armies into battle. As Pierre Mollier well remarks in his introduction to this volume, Anglo-Saxon Freemasonry has often proposed that it "does not do politics." That will surprise historians of Mexico who have to explain that the country's first civil war was between York and Scottish Rite Masons, or students of American political parties who note that the first organized political party was the Anti-Masonic. A comprehensive article on the Mormon religious movement, the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints, provides another example in these pages of the relevance of Masonry to broader issues. In sum then, an effort to wall off ...
