Captives: Contemporary Russian Stories

by Natasha Perova

"Now classics in Russian literature, these stories, focusing on the theme of captivity, have again become relevant today given Russia's growing bureaucratic totalitarianism and the unending war in the Caucasus. " "The stories are grouped in two sections: "The Perestroika Chaos" and "Remembering the Soviet Past". " "The first section, often verging on the absurd, conveys the chaos in the lives and minds of ordinary Russians in the face of unfamiliar market conditions. These problems caused many of those unable to adapt to them to feel nostalgic for the seemingly secure Soviet past. The second section is a reminder of that Soviet past for those, including some left-wing intellectuals in the West, who tend to forget its inhuman essence. "--BOOK JACKET.

Car Wars: Fifty Years of Backstabbing, Infighting, And Industrial Espionage in the Global Market

by Mantle Jonathan

An "astonishing...eye-opening chronicle" (Publisher's Weekly) of backstabbing, infighting, and industrial theft and espionage in the world's biggest business. It makes empires; it destroys economies; it shapes history. Welcome to the world's biggest business--the automobile industry. A hundred years ago there were six highly experimental cars. Today there are close to 400 million cars on the planet: set bumper to bumper on a six-lane highway, they would stretch well over 200,000 miles, more than eight times around the earth. With hundreds of billions of dollars at stake, is it any wonder that the major car companies wage a relentless war against one another, where (almost) anything goes? Here is the story of all the schemes and deceits, treacheries and shady deals in the battle for the world's car markets since the dawn of the global economy fifty years ago. The first true biography of the automobile, Car Wars gives us the automotive history as seen through the windshield of the car--with stories so spectacular they are often hard to believe. From Gianni Agnelli's deal to make Fiats in the USSR at the height of the cold war and Jose Ignacio Lopez's defection from GM to VW, through Pehr Gyllenhammar's foiled attempt to merge Volvo and Renault, and on to Nicolas Hayek's deal with Mercedes-Benz to build the Swatchcar in 1997, Car Wars is a roller coaster ride down the freeways and the back roads of the world's premier business, and an eye-opening history of the world's best-known and most-loved cars.

A Carafe of Red

by Gerald Asher

Every wine has a story. In this collection of elegantly written essays from the past thirty years, updated with a new introduction and endnotes, renowned author Gerald Asher informs wine enthusiasts with insightful, engrossing accounts of wines from Europe and America that offer just as much for those who simply enjoy vivid evocations of people and places. Asher puts wine in its context by taking the reader on a series of discursive journeys that start with the carafe at his elbow. In his introduction, Asher says, "Wine . . . draws on everything and leads everywhere." Whether the subject is a supposedly simple red wine shared in a Parisian café or a Napa Valley Cabernet tasted with its vintner, every essay in A Carafe of Red is as pleasurable as the wines themselves.
