GOLF’S FORGOTTEN LEGENDS His father didn’t want him playing golf, he was stricken with tuberculosis at 33, and he used a golf swing pros would never teach today. Yet he is renowned for being the world’s first superstar golfer and greatest of his time. He was America’s first golf hero, yet most American golfers know very little about him. At 19 he won the U.S. National Open and did it again the following year. However, he was ruthlessly maligned by Golf Magazine and the film “The Greatest Game Ever Played. He was arguably the most talented golfer in the history of the game, gaining prominence from the 1930s to 1950s. He was the first golfer in history to be blackballed by the PGA Tour for being too good. The greatest players came to him for instruction, including Ben Hogan. This golf pro threw away a U.S. Open Championship after she finished the tournament with the winning score. Read the story of her innocent mistake and what she could have done to reclaim her title.

Using vintage art and classic storytelling, comics author Kurt Busiek (Astro City) and artist Trina Robbins (Wimmen’s Comix) bring to life a spectacular and endearing retro Amazon Princess in their never-before-reprinted miniseries The Legend of Wonder Woman. This all-new collection also includes Busiek’s tale of “Paradise Burning!” from Wonder Woman #318 (illustrated by Irv Novick and Rick Magyar) and Robbins’ chapter from 1989’s Wonder Woman Annual #2 (written by Lee Marrs). In the aftermath of a universe-shattering crisis, an inanimate clay figure is all that remains of Wonder Woman, champion and defender of Paradise Island…until Queen Hippolyta uses a magic sphere to revisit the past and remind the Amazons of the bravery and fortitude of their fallen princess. When Atomia, the mercurial ruler of a subatomic galaxy, suddenly attacks Washington, D.C. and kidnaps Steve Trevor, Diana must pursue this would-be conqueror around the world to free her prisoners from their deadly bondage—all while looking after Etta Candy’s headstrong young cousin, Suzie. But Diana’s rescue plan falters when she is betrayed in the Land of Mirrors and delivered in chains to Atomia. How can Wonder Woman manage to save the captives and stop Suzie from joining the atomic queen when she doesn’t know friend from foe? And even more important: Will reopening these memories restore Princess Diana to her people?

The Promise And Peril Of Credit

How an antisemitic legend gave voice to widespread fears surrounding the expansion of private credit in Western capitalism The Promise and Peril of Credit takes an incisive look at pivotal episodes in the West’s centuries-long struggle to define the place of private finance in the social and political order. It does so through the lens of a persistent legend about Jews and money that reflected the anxieties surrounding the rise of impersonal credit markets. By the close of the Middle Ages, new and sophisticated credit instruments made it easier for European merchants to move funds across the globe. Bills of exchange were by far the most arcane of these financial innovations. Intangible and written in a cryptic language, they fueled world trade but also lured naive investors into risky businesses. Francesca Trivellato recounts how the invention of these abstruse credit contracts was falsely attributed to Jews, and how this story gave voice to deep-seated fears about the unseen perils of the new paper economy. She locates the legend’s earliest version in a seventeenth-century handbook on maritime law and traces its legacy all the way to the work of the founders of modern social theory—from Marx to Weber and Sombart. Deftly weaving together economic, legal, social, cultural, and intellectual history, Trivellato vividly describes how Christian writers drew on the story to define and redefine what constituted the proper boundaries of credit in a modern world increasingly dominated by finance.
