When George Washington bade farewell to his officers, he did so in New York´s Fraunces Tavern. When Andrew Jackson planned his defense of New Orleans against the British in 1815, he met Jean Lafitte in a grog shop. And when John Wilkes Booth plotted with his accomplices to carry out a certain assassination, they gathered in Surratt Tavern. In America Walks into a Bar, Christine Sismondo recounts the rich and fascinating history of an institution often reviled, yet always central to American life. She traces the tavern from England to New England, showing how even the Puritans valued ´´a good Beere´´. With fast-paced narration and lively characters, she carries the story through the twentieth century and beyond, from repeated struggles over licensing and Sunday liquor sales, from the Whiskey Rebellion to the temperance movement, from attempts to ban ´´treating´´ to Prohibition and repeal. As the cockpit of organized crime, politics, and everyday social life, the bar has remained vital - and controversial - down to the present. In 2006, when the Hurricane Katrina Emergency Tax Relief Act was passed, a rider excluded bars from applying for aid or tax breaks on the grounds that they contributed nothing to the community. Sismondo proves otherwise: the bar has contributed everything to the American story. In this heady cocktail of agile prose and telling anecdotes, Sismondo offers a resounding toast to taprooms, taverns, saloons, speakeasies, and the local hangout where everybody knows your name. 1.

Ananasschalen und Kakaobutter in handetikettierten Plastikflaschen: die Ingredienzien für ein Imperium. Aus der Reihe ´´Frauen - einfach genial´´, Frauen und ihre epochalen Erfindungen aus zweieinhalb Jahrhunderten: Wissen wir eigentlich, welche genialen Köpfe hinter vielen Erfindungen stecken, die unseren Alltag erleichtern? Häufig sind es eben nicht die männlichen Genies aus Naturwissenschaft und Technik, sondern Frauen, die aus den Erfahrungen ihres Alltags heraus ihre besonderen Talente kreativ zu nutzen wussten. Oft setzten sie ihre Ideen mit Beharrlichkeit gegen Standeszwänge und Ausbildungsbeschränkungen durch. Ihre Findigkeit, Energie und Ausdauer versetzen noch immer in Staunen und Begeisterung. Ihr Vorbild sollte Ansporn sein, die eigene Kreativität richtig schätzen zu lernen und zu begreifen, dass es oft gerade naheliegende Überlegungen sind, die den Anstoß zu großen Veränderungen geben. 1.

When journalist Rory Kress met Izzie, she didn´t think twice before bringing her home. She found the 12-week-old wheaten terrier in a pet shop and was handed paperwork showing Izzie had been born in a USDA-licensed breeding facility - so she couldn´t be a puppy mill dog, right? But a few years later, as Rory embarked on her own difficult journey to become a mother, her curiosity began to tug at her. Sure, Izzie was her fur baby, but who was her dog´s real mother, and where was she now? And where did Izzie pick up her strange personality quirks? Like so many people, Rory had assumed the young puppy was a clean slate when she bought her. Those questions led Rory - with Izzie by her side - on a nationwide investigation, the first of its kind. From a dog livestock auction to the laboratory of one of the world´s leading animal behavioral scientists all the way up to the highest echelons of the USDA, they sought answers about who we´re trusting to be the watchdogs for our pet dogs. The Doggie in the Window is a story of hope and redemption. With Izzie´s help, we learn the real story behind the dog in the window and how she got there in the first place. 1. Language: English.
