Ghosts of 42nd Street

by Anthony Bianco

Imagine shuffling down Broadway through the hustle and bustle right into the nonstop, neon heart of New York City: 42nd Street. Once a quiet neighborhood of brownstones and churches, the area was transformed in the early 1900s into an entertainment hub unlike any in the world. No place has ever evoked the glamour and romantic possibility of big-city nightlife as vividly as did 42nd Street. It was the dazzle of "naughty, bawdy, gaudy" 42nd Street that put Times Square on the map and turned the Broadway theater district into the Great White Way. Ghosts of 42nd Street stirs your imagination as it takes you on a historical journey of this glamorized strip still known today as the Crossroads of the World. From the bold innovations of Oscar Hammerstein and Florenz Ziegfeld through the porn-laden 1960s and 1970s to the present-day "Disneyfication" of New York's bright lights district, Ghosts of 42nd Street is as fascinating as a tabloid frozen in time.

Ghosts of Boston Town: Three Centuries of True Hauntings

by Holly Mascott Nadler

From the Book jacket: "In all the country. New England holds the richest repository of stories of the supernatural," writes Holly Nadler. "And why not? The region has all the elements of a ghost factory. First you take a foundation of Native American culture trampled underfoot,... Add to that the layers of colorful history-rag-tag militia vs. Redcoats, Puritans vs. witches, pirates and smugglers vs. everyone,... Is it any wonder that Boston, the area's oldest, biggest, and in its own uptight, repressed way, its most passionate city should be overrun with spirits?" Ranging from the eighteenth century to the present and from Beacon Hill to windswept Cape Ann, Ghosts of Boston Town proves that the Boston region indeed offers a remarkable variety of ghostly phenomena. Many of these accounts are satisfyingly ghoulish and creepy; some are colored with a certain poignancy or even a trace of humor, for these are stories of the living as well as the dead. In these pages, experienced ghost researcher Holly Nadler (author of Haunted Island: True Ghost Stories from Martha's Vineyard) takes us on a wonderfully disturbing tour of the supernatural neighborhoods of Boston town.

The Ghosts of Bungo Suido

by P. T. Deutermann

A thrilling WWII adventure set in a submarine in the Pacific, by the Boyd Award-winning author of Pacific Glory. In late 1944, America's naval forces face what seems an insurmountable threat from Japan: immense Yamato-class battleships, which dwarf every other ship at sea. Built in secrecy, these ships seem invincible, and lay waste to any challengers. American military intelligence knows of two such ships, but there is rumored to be a third, a newly-built aircraft carrier, ready to launch from Japan's heavily-defended and mined Inland Sea. Such a ship would threaten U. S. Pacific forces, allow Japan to launch air attacks against the U. S. mainland, and change the course of the war. No American submarine has penetrated the Inland Sea; five boats and their crews have perished in the Bungo Suido strait. Lieutenant Commander Gar Hammond-an aggressive, attacking leader with a reckless streak-is now captain of a new submarine. Hammond may be the navy's only hope to locate and stop the Japanese super-ship before it launches . . . if it even exists. P. T. Deutermann's previous World War II adventure, Pacific Glory, won acclaim from readers and reviewers, and was honored with the W. Y. Boyd Literary Award for Excellence in Military Fiction, administered by the American Library Association. In Ghosts of Bungo Suido, Deutermann presents another sweeping, action-filled WWII novel, based on a true event from the Pacific theater.

The Ghosts of Cannae: Hannibal and the Darkest Hour of the Roman Republic

by Robert L. O’connell

A stirring account of the most influential battle in history For millennia, Carthage's triumph over Rome at Cannae in 216 B.C. has inspired reverence and awe. It was the battle that countless armies tried to imitate, most notably in World Wars I and II, the battle that obsessed legendary military minds. Yet no general ever matched Hannibal's most unexpected, innovative, and brutal military victory--the costliest day of combat for any army in history. Robert L. O'Connell, one of the most admired names in military history, now tells the whole story of Cannae for the first time, giving us a stirring account of this apocalyptic battle of the Second Punic War, and its causes and consequences.O'Connell shows how a restive Rome amassed a giant army to punish Carthage's masterful commander, who had dealt them deadly blows at Trebia and Lake Trasimene, and how Hannibal outwitted enemies that outnumbered him. O'Connell describes Hannibal's strategy of blinding his opponents with sun and dust, enveloping them in a deadly embrace and sealing their escape, before launching a massive knife fight that would kill 48,000 men in close contact. The Ghosts of Cannae then brilliantly conveys how this disastrous pivot point in Rome's history ultimately led to the republic's resurgence and the creation of its empire.Piecing together decayed shreds of ancient reportage, the author paints powerful portraits of the leading players: Hannibal, resolutely sane and uncannily strategic; Varro, Rome's co-consul who was so scapegoated for the loss; and Scipio Africanus, the surviving (and self-promoting) Roman military tribune who would one day pay back Hannibal at Zama in North Africa. Finally, O'Connell reveals how Cannae's legend has inspired and haunted military leaders ever since, and the lessons it teaches for our own wars.Superbly researched and written with wit and erudition, The Ghosts of Cannae is the definitive account of a battle whose history continues to resonate.From the Hardcover edition.

Ghosts of Empire

by Kwasi Kwarteng

Kwasi Kwarteng is the child of parents whose lives were shaped as subjects of the British Empire, first in their native Ghana, then as British immigrants. He brings a unique perspective and impeccable academic credentials to a narrative history of the British Empire, one that avoids sweeping judgmental condemnation and instead sees the Empire for what it was: a series of local fiefdoms administered in varying degrees of competence or brutality by a cast of characters as outsized and eccentric as anything conjured by Gilbert and Sullivan. The truth, as Kwarteng reveals, is that there was no such thing as a model for imperial administration; instead, appointees were schooled in quirky, independent-minded individuality. As a result the Empire was the product not of a grand idea but of often chaotic individual improvisation. The idosyncracies of viceroys and soldier-diplomats who ran the colonial enterprise continues to impact the world, from Kashmir to Sudan, Baghdad to Hong Kong.
