📒Ike S Gamble ✍ Michael Doran
📝Ike s Gamble Book Synopsis : In a bold reinterpretation of history, Ike's Gamble shows how the 1956 Suez Crisis taught President Eisenhower that Israel, not Egypt, would have to be America's ally in the region. In 1956 President Nasser of Egypt moved to take possession of the Suez Canal, bringing the Middle East to the brink of war. Distinguished Middle East expert Michael Doran shows how Nasser played the United States, invoking America's opposition to European colonialism to his own benefit. At the same time Nasser made weapons deals with the USSR and destabilized other Arab countries that the United States had been courting. In time, Eisenhower would realize that Nasser had duped him and that the Arab countries were too fractious to anchor America's interests in the Middle East. Affording deep insight into Eisenhower and his foreign policy, this fascinating and provocative history provides a rich new understanding of the tangled path by which the United States became the power broker in the Middle East. -- Back cover.
📒The Compulsive Gambler ✍ Eli Schleifer With Robert Temple
📝The Compulsive Gambler Book Synopsis : Gambling Fever could have been subtitled “The Man Who Must”. That is an apt description of the compulsive gambler whose very existence demands that he must wager in excess . To the compulsive gambler the act of wagering takes priority over eating, drinking, personal relationships, sexual activity , earning a living, supporting a family or looking after his own health problems. Compulsive gambling is the obsession of all obsessions. A person (man or woman) will lie, cheat, steal and embezzle in order to feed his habit. Nothing will deter him. As more and more states expand legalization of all forms of gambling to raise much- needed revenue and create hard-to-find jobs the problem is increasing by leaps and bounds. The book concludes that few resources are devoted to dealing with this issue and raises the question of whether any treatment can cure the obsession. Gambling Fever traces the history of gambling, quotes numerous references throughout history by famous writers such as Shakespeare and Dostoevsky, psychologists such as Sigmund Freud, statesmen, conquerors, clergymen, entertainers and others who have either struggled with gambling or analyzed the gambler. Finally, the book also serves as an insight into Eli Schleifer, the man who struggled his entire life with his demons—those of the compulsive gambler.

Following a general introduction, Muir provides a synopsis and commentary, a list of cast and crew, significant quotations by critics for each motion picture as well as by participants in the film's making when available, and stills for selected films.

📒Gettysburg ✍ Allen C. Guelzo
📝Gettysburg Book Synopsis : Winner of the Guggenheim-Lehrman Prize in Military History An Economist Best Book of the Year A Kirkus Reviews Best Nonfiction Book of the Year The Battle of Gettysburg has been written about at length and thoroughly dissected in terms of strategic importance, but never before has a book taken readers so close to the experience of the individual soldier. Two-time Lincoln Prize winner Allen C. Guelzo shows us the face, the sights and the sounds of nineteenth-century combat: the stone walls and gunpowder clouds of Pickett’s Charge; the reason that the Army of Northern Virginia could be smelled before it could be seen; the march of thousands of men from the banks of the Rappahannock in Virginia to the Pennsylvania hills. What emerges is a previously untold story of army life in the Civil War: from the personal politics roiling the Union and Confederate officer ranks, to the peculiar character of artillery units. Through such scrutiny, one of history’s epic battles is given extraordinarily vivid new life. From the Trade Paperback edition.
