Lady Bird Johnson

An Oral History

Over a span of eighteen years, Lady Bird Johnson recorded forty-seven oral history interviews with Michael Gillette and his colleagues. These conversations, just released in 2011, form the heart of Lady Bird Johnson: An Oral History, an intimate story of a shy young country girl's transformation into one of America's most effective and admired First Ladies. Lady Bird Johnson's odyssey is one of personal and intellectual growth, political and financial ambition, and a shared life with Lyndon Baines Johnson, one of the most complicated, volatile, and powerful presidents of the 20th century. The former First Lady recounts how a cautious, conservative young woman succumbed to an ultimatum to marry a man she had known for less than three months, how she ran his congressional office during World War II, and how she transformed a struggling Austin radio station into the foundation of a communications empire. As a keen observer of the Washington scene during the eventful decades from the 1930s through the 1960s, Lady Bird Johnson shares dramatic accounts of pivotal moments in American history. We attend informal dinners at Sam Rayburn's apartment and opulent social events at grand mansions from an earlier age. Her rich verbal portraits bring to life scores of personalities, including First Ladies Edith Bolling Wilson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman, Mamie Eisenhower, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Pat Nixon. An informal, candid narrative by one of America's most admired First Ladies, this volume reveals how instrumental Lady Bird Johnson's support and guidance were at each stage of her husband's political ascent and how she herself emerged as a significant political force.

Lady Bird

A Biography of Mrs. Johnson

A revealing biography of Lady Bird Johnson with startling new insights into her marriage to Lyndon Baines Johnson and her unexpectedly strong impact on his presidency. Long obscured by her husband's shadow, Claudia "Lady Bird" Johnson emerges in this first comprehensive biography as a figure of surprising influence and the centering force for LBJ, a man who suffered from extreme mood swings and desperately needed someone to help control his darker impulses. Expertly researched and written, Lady Bird draws from rare conversations with the former First Lady and from interviews with key members of Johnson's inner circle of friends, family, and advisers. With chapters such as "Motherless Child," "A Ten-Week Affair," and "LBJ's Midlife Crisis," Lady Bird sheds new light on Mrs. Johnson's childhood, on her amazing acumen as a businesswoman, and on the central role she played in her husband's life and political career. A vital link to the Kennedys during LBJ's uneasy tenure as vice president and a voice of conscience on civil rights, Lady Bird is portrayed here as a political force, strikingly different from the somewhat minor figure depicted in previous works on LBJ. Especially fascinating today, in light of the enormous attention now focused on the private lives of our leaders, are the personal details about her marriage to a man whose extramarital affairs were widely discussed. In this intimate portrait, Russell shows us the private Lady Bird -- not only a passionate conservationist but a remarkable woman who greatly influenced her husband, his administration, and the country.

Im Jahr 79 n. Chr. regnete glühende Asche auf Pompeji nieder. Lava überflutete Menschen, Tiere und Gebäude – und konservierte sie für die Ewigkeit. Jahrhunderte später ist Pompeji eine der wichtigsten Fundstätten der Archäologie. Die weltweit bekannte Historikerin Mary Beard nimmt uns mit auf einen faszinierenden Spaziergang durch die Geschichte Pompejis. Sie schildert, wie die Menschen dort gelebt und geliebt haben, beschreibt Häuser, Kneipen und Gärten, Kunstwerke und Dinge des Alltags. Zugleich entlarvt sie die Irrtümer, die Forschern immer wieder unterliefen, und zeigt, wie es wirklich war. Mit jedem faszinierenden Rätsel, das sie dabei präsentiert, wächst die Sehnsucht, diesen Ort mit eigenen Augen zu sehen. »Pompeji« wurde 2008 mit dem renommierten Wolfson History Prize ausgezeichnet. »Dieses fantastische Buch ... ist ein Vorbild für ebenso scharfsinniges wie spannendes Erzählen über die Vergangenheit.« The Guardian

Von Beethoven bis Obama – 100 Jungs, die die Welt verändert haben! Jungs brauchen Vorbilder – heute mehr denn je. In diesem aufwändig gestalteten Buch finden sie über 100 ganz persönliche Geschichten von Künstlern, Wissenschaftlern, Umweltaktivisten, Fußballern, Politikern und Entdeckern – von großen und kleinen Helden aus der ganzen Welt und aus allen Epochen, die Grenzen überschritten haben und gegen den Strom geschwommen sind. Sie alle hatten den Mut, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen und so ihre Träume zu verwirklichen. Nach dem großen Erfolg von Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls gibt es nun endlich auch eine inspirierende Geschichtensammlung für Jungs. Autor Ben Brooks erzählt von Persönlichkeiten, die Erstaunliches erreicht und die Welt auf ihre Art ein Stück besser gemacht haben – jenseits von stereotypen Männlichkeitsbildern und Rollenklischees. Denn: Man muss sich nicht mit großen Kämpfern identifizieren, die Drachen töten und Prinzessinnen retten, um zum Helden zu werden. Dieses Buch zeigt, dass man auch als Querdenker, als sensibler oder introvertierter Junge Außergewöhnliches zu leisten vermag. Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different ist ein unvergleichliches Buch, randvoll gepackt mit Abenteuern, spannenden Geschichten und mancher Überraschung. Am wichtigsten jedoch: es bestärkt kleine und große Jungs darin, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. "Dieses Buch kann Leben retten. Dieses Buch kann Leben verändern. Dieses Buch kann dazu beitragen eine neue Generation von Jungs hervorzubringen, die es wagen ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen." - Benjamin Zephaniah Mit spannenden Biografien von großen Persönlichkeiten, wie: Ai Weiwei, Barack Obama, Benjamin Zephaniah, Bill Gates, Christopher Paolini, Confucius, Daniel Radcliffe, Galileo Galilei, Hans Scholl, Harvey Milk, Jamie Oliver, Jesse Eisenberg, Jim Henson, John Green, John Lennon, Lionel Messi, Louis Armstrong, Louis Braille, Ludwig van Beethoven, Mahatma Gandhi, Muhammad Ali, Nelson Mandela, Nikola Tesla, Oscar Wilde, Patch Adams, Ralph Lauren, Roald Dahl, Salvador Dalí, Siddhartha Gautama, Stephen Hawking, Steven Spielberg, Tank Man, Thomas Edison, Vincent van Gogh
