Chicago '68 by David Farber

Book Description

Entertaining and scrupulously researched, Chicago '68 reconstructs the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago - an epochal moment in American cultural and political history. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Farber tells the story of the protests in the three different voices of the major protagonists - the Yippies, the National Mobilization to End the War, and Mayor Richard J. Daley and his police. He brilliantly re-creates all the excitement and drama, the violently charged action and language of this period of crisis, giving life to the whole set of cultural experiences we call "the sixties."

The extraordinary life and times of a colorful capitalist who invented the idea of consumer credit.

What They Think of Us by David Farber What They Think of Us, Hardback (February 2007)

While many people around the world see the United States as a model, the US response to 9/11 has undoubtedly intensified global anti-Americanism. This book reveals that goodwill toward America still exists, and that this sympathy is in peril - and that there is an immense gap between how Americans view their country and how it is viewed abroad.

Taken Hostage by David Farber Taken Hostage, Paperback (July 2006)

On November 4, 1979, Iranian militants stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran and took sixty-six Americans captive. Thus began the Iran Hostage Crisis. This book takes a look at the hostage crisis, examining its lessons for America's contemporary War on Terrorism. It includes fresh insights regarding the central players in the crisis.
