Nobody sings like Melba, and nobody ever will, proclaimed the impresario Oscar Hammerstein in 1908. Like many others of his time, he considered her the world's greatest singer. The wild acclaim showered on her by American fans led to the coining of the word Melbamania. Year after year she toured America on the Melba train, bringing opera and concerts to out-of-the-way cities and towns; thanks to the new gramophone, she could also be heard in the remotest locales. Ann Blainey's beguiling life of Nellie Melba tells the story of a woman who-in an era when no woman was prime minister, chief justice, head of a church or financial firm, or a universal film star-became perhaps the most famous woman in the world. Ms. Blainey's Marvelous Melba punctures many of the myths surrounding Melba's life and career, and offers a new portrait of the great diva.

Preeminent Kentucky reformer and women's rights advocate Madeline McDowell Breckinridge (1872--1920) was at the forefront of social change during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A descendant of Henry Clay and the daughter of two of Kentucky's most prominent families, Breckinridge had a remarkably varied activist career that included roles in the promotion of public health, education, women's rights, and charity. Founder of the Lexington Civic League and Associated Charities, Breckinridge successfully lobbied to create parks and playgrounds and to establish a juvenile court system in Kentucky. She also became president of the Kentucky Equal Rights Association, served as vice president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, and even campaigned across the country for the League of Nations. In the first biography of Breckinridge since 1921, Madeline McDowell Breckinridge and the Battle for a New South, Melba Porter Hay draws on newly discovered correspondence and rich personal interviews with her female associates to illuminate the fascinating life of this important Kentucky activist. Deftly balancing Breckinridge's public reform efforts with her private concerns, Hay tells the story of Madeline's marriage to Desha Breckinridge, editor of the Lexington Herald, and how she used the match to her advantage by promoting social causes in the newspaper. Hay also chronicles Breckinridge's ordeals with tuberculosis and amputation, and emotionally trying episodes of family betrayal and sex scandals. Hay describes how Breckinridge's physical struggles and personal losses transformed her from a privileged socialite into a selfless advocate for the disadvantaged. Later as vice president of the National American Women Suffrage Association, Breckinridge lobbied for Kentucky's ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, which gave women the right to vote in 1920. While devoting much of her life to the woman suffrage movement on the local and national levels, she also supported the antituberculosis movement, social programs for the poor, compulsory school attendance, and laws regulating child labor. In bringing to life this extraordinary reformer, Hay shows how Breckinridge championed Kentucky's social development during the Progressive Era.

Eine Reise zu den Wurzeln des großen amerikanischen Traums Geert Mak hat sich wieder auf den Weg gemacht. Der Bestsellerautor von »In Europa« ist quer durch die Landschaft, durch Geschichte und Gegenwart, ja durch die Köpfe und Herzen der USA gereist. Dabei trifft er unterschiedlichste Menschen, macht außergewöhnliche Beobachtungen und erzählt hinreißende Geschichten. Mit diesem Buch begibt sich Mak auf die Suche nach den Wurzeln des großen amerikanischen Traums und beschreibt die Mythen und das Selbstverständnis jenes Landes, das uns immer noch am meisten beschäftigt. Was ist aus dem amerikanischen Traum geworden, seit John Steinbeck 1960 die USA gemeinsam mit seinem berühmten Pudel Charley durchquert hat? Dieser Frage folgt der international bekannte Publizist Geert Mak und macht sich dafür selbst auf den Weg durch die Vereinigten Staaten, fernab ausgetrampelter Pfade, quer durch ein Land, das er liebt und zugleich kritisch betrachtet. Meile um Meile dringt er tiefer in das Land und seine Mythen, sein Selbstverständnis, seine Großartigkeit und Zerrissenheit vor. Seine Reise führt ihn von den großen Ostküstenstädten über die Kartoffelacker des Hinterlandes und die Prärie des mittleren Westens bis zum Pazifik. Er trifft Menschen – setzt sich an einen Tisch mit dem Farmer, dem Fabrikarbeiter, dem Fischer, dem Lehrer. Er streift durch die riesigen Malls und die Vororte, und er sucht nach den Wurzeln des Landes, das sich radikal verändert und doch den Glauben an den amerikanischen Traum bewahrt hat.
