Summer in the City

Bright Lights Summer In The City [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Summer in the City by Joseph P. Viteritti Book Resume:

Summer in the City takes a clear look at John Lindsay’s tenure as mayor of New York City during the tumultuous 1960s, when President Lyndon Johnson launched his ambitious Great Society Program. Providing an even-handed reassessment of Lindsay’s legacy and the policies of the period, the essays in this volume skillfully dissect his kaleidoscope of progressive ideas and approach to leadership—all set in a perfect storm of huge demographic changes, growing fiscal stress, and an unprecedented commitment by the federal government to attain a more equal society. Compelling archival photos and a timeline give readers a window into the mythic 1960s, a period animated by civil rights marches, demands for black power, antiwar demonstrations, and a heroic intergovernmental effort to redistribute national resources more evenly. Written by prize-winning authors and leading scholars, each chapter covers a distinct aspect of Lindsay’s mayoralty (politics, race relations, finance, public management, architecture, economic development, and the arts), while Joseph P. Viteritti’s introductory and concluding essays offer an honest and nuanced portrait of Lindsay and the prospects for shaping more balanced public priorities as New York City ushers in a new era of progressive leadership. The volume’s sharp focus on the controversies of the Mad Men era will appeal not only to older readers who witnessed its explosive events, but also to younger readers eager for a deeper understanding of the time. A progressive Republican with bold ideals and a fervent belief in the American Dream, Lindsay strove to harness the driving forces of modernization, democratization, acculturation, inclusion, growth, and social justice in ways that will inform our thinking about the future of the city. Contributors: Lizabeth Cohen, Paul Goldberger, Brian Goldstein, Geoffrey Kabaservice, Mariana Mogilevich, Charles R. Morris, David Rogers, Clarence Taylor, and Joseph P. Viteritti

Bright Lights Dark Days

Bright Lights Summer In The City [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Bright Lights Dark Days by TG Gayner Book Resume:

Gary Gayner was a member of ‘Jack’, a successful pop band from Bristol. In 1977 music agent Barry Sullivan took the band to London, promising to make them national stars under the name of ‘The National Smile Band’. This is a story of youthful ambition, of hopes raised and ultimately dashed, and the fickle world of pop. Funny, wistful, nostalgic and sad this true story is a gripping read as the fortunes of the band rise and fall, to a stunning conclusion. ‘Bright Lights Dark Days’ tells the true story of five school friends from working class Bristol who want the fame, riches and adulation of pop stars. Self-taught musicians they find success on the local pub and club scene before being spotted by London’s leading music agent. What follows is a roller coaster ride as the band’s ambitions seem near to fulfilment only to recede again. With a strong cast of characters that includes household names such as Paul McCartney and Freddie Mercury, the book describes the glamorous but seedy pop world of 1970s London. But it is really about the hopes and ambitions of starry-eyed youth, dashed by a cynical world. Band member Gary Gayner has been driven to tell this extraordinary story. It will appeal to anyone who can remember the 1970s, to those interested in the music scene, but above all to anyone who loves to be gripped by a good read. This is no gilded, happy, recollection. Although light-hearted at times Gary is brutally honest about his feelings as deceit followed flattery, as relationships fell apart under the strain, and as his eyes were opened to a world that, in his youthful naivety, he did not know existed. This unvarnished, open-hearted, honesty makes ‘Bright Light Dark Days’ a powerful as well as an entertaining read.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Bronx Is Burning

Bright Lights Summer In The City [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Bronx Is Burning by Jonathan Mahler Book Resume:

A passionate and dramatic account of a year in the life of a city, when baseball and crime reigned supreme, and when several remarkable figures emerged to steer New York clear of one of its most harrowing periods. By early 1977, the metropolis was in the grip of hysteria caused by a murderer dubbed "Son of Sam." And on a sweltering night in July, a citywide power outage touched off an orgy of looting and arson that led to the largest mass arrest in New York's history. As the turbulent year wore on, the city became absorbed in two epic battles: the fight between Yankee slugger Reggie Jackson and team manager Billy Martin, and the battle between Ed Koch and Mario Cuomo for the city's mayoralty. Buried beneath these parallel conflicts—one for the soul of baseball, the other for the soul of the city—was the subtext of race. The brash and confident Jackson took every black myth and threw it back in white America's face. Meanwhile, Koch and Cuomo ran bitterly negative campaigns that played upon urbanites' fears of soaring crime and falling municipal budgets. These braided stories tell the history of a year that saw the opening of Studio 54, the evolution of punk rock, and the dawning of modern SoHo. As the pragmatist Koch defeated the visionary Cuomo and as Reggie Jackson finally rescued a team racked with dissension,1977 became a year of survival but also of hope. Ladies and Gentlemen, the Bronx Is Burning is a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, and the basis of the 2007 ESPN miniseries, starring John Turturro as Billy Martin, Oliver Platt as George Steinbrenner, and Daniel Sunjata as Reggie Jackson.
