Rising Star by , Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Rising Star is the definitive account of Barack Obama's formative years that made him the man who became the forty-fourth president of the United States—from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Bearing the Cross Barack Obama's speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention instantly catapulted him into the national spotlight and led to his election four years later as America's first African-American president. In this penetrating biography, David J. Garrow delivers an epic work about the life of Barack Obama, creating a rich tapestry of a life little understood, until now. Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama captivatingly describes Barack Obama's tumultuous upbringing as a young black man attending an almost-all-white, elite private school in Honolulu while being raised almost exclusively by his white grandparents. After recounting Obama's college years in California and New York, Garrow charts Obama's time as a Chicago community organizer, working in some of the city's roughest neighborhoods; his years at the top of his Harvard Law School class; and his return to Chicago, where Obama honed his skills as a hard-knuckled politician, first in the state legislature and then as a candidate for the United States Senate. Detailing a scintillating, behind-the-scenes account of Obama's 2004 speech, a moment that labeled him the Democratic Party's "rising star," Garrow also chronicles Obama's four years in the Senate, weighing his stands on various issues against positions he had taken years earlier, and recounts his thrilling run for the White House in 2008. In Rising Star, David J. Garrow has created a vivid portrait that reveals not only the people and forces that shaped the future president but also the ways in which he used those influences to serve his larger aspirations. This is a gripping read about a young man born into uncommon family circumstances, whose faith in his own talents came face-to-face with fantastic ambitions and a desire to do good in the world. Most important, Rising Star is an extraordinary work of biography—tremendous in its research and storytelling, and brilliant in its analysis of the all-too-human struggles of one of the most fascinating politicians of our time.

Rising Star by Bates Gill Summary

China's diplomatic strategy has changed dramatically since the mid-1990s, creating both challenges and opportunities for other world powers. Through a combination of pragmatic security policies, growing economic clout, and increasingly deft diplomacy, China has established productive and increasingly solid relationships throughout Asia and around the globe. Yet U.S. policymakers are still trying to comprehend these critical changes. Rising Star provides a coherent framework for understanding China's new security diplomacy and guiding America's China policy. Bates Gill has completely updated his original analysis, focusing on Chinese policy in three areas: regional security mechanisms, nonproliferation and arms control, and questions of sovereignty and intervention. Looking to the future, he offers specific recommendations for a balanced and realistic approach that emphasizes what China and the United States have in common, rather than what divides them. The main arguments and recommendations of the original book continue to hold true and, in many respects, are more compelling now than ever before given China's continued ascendancy.

Rising Star, Setting Sun by John T Shaw Summary

After winning the presidency by a razor-thin victory on November 8, 1960, over Richard Nixon, Dwight D. Eisenhower’s former vice president, John F. Kennedy became the thirty-fifth president of the United States. But beneath the stately veneers of both Ike and JFK, there was a complex and consequential rivalry. In Rising Star, Setting Sun, John T. Shaw focuses on the intense ten-week transition between JFK’s electoral victory and his inauguration on January 20, 1961. In just over two months, America would transition into a new age, and nowhere was it more marked that in the generational and personal difference between these two men and their dueling visions for the country they led. The former general espoused frugality, prudence, and stewardship. The young political wu¨nderkid embodied dramatic themes and sweeping social change. Extensively researched and eloquently written, Shaw paints a vivid picture of what Time called a “turning point in the twentieth century” as Americans today find themselves poised on the cusp of another watershed moment in our nation’s history.

Rising Star by Kendra Lawrence Summary

Centuries ago, an angel’s betrayal left the plane of Celestia reeling. Not long after, mortals and celestials alike fought demons in the War of the Races, mistakenly thinking a battle against the demons would never happen again. Unfortunately, now nearly two thousand years later, rumors are circulating that the Lord of the Hells has a daughter, and demonic activity in the mortal plane of Elyshaeza is increasing. Neil is a rogue demon who has left the Hells for Elyshaeza. But when he encounters Shara Aotallin, an elf ordered to take him to be judged, he is suddenly thrust into a mystery that leads him and several elves to a gruesome discovery. Artemis is a young celestial left on the mortal plane who is questioning its abilities and identity. Another celestial tries to perform his duties, but is haunted by the past and the present. After a village girl, Collie, is brought to Celestia, an incident with a demonic mirror literally leads her to the Hells and back. And it is only the beginning for all of them. Rising Star, the first of the Rain of Stars trilogy, is an exciting fantasy tale that pitches celestials and mortals into the repetition of history as demons lurk in the shadows and all await their destinies.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Red Rising thrilled readers and announced the presence of a talented new author. Golden Son changed the game and took the story of Darrow to the next level. Now comes the exhilarating next chapter in the Red Rising Saga: Morning Star. ITW THRILLER AWARD FINALIST • “[Brown’s] achievement is in creating an uncomfortably familiar world of flaw, fear, and promise.”—Entertainment Weekly Darrow would have lived in peace, but his enemies brought him war. The Gold overlords demanded his obedience, hanged his wife, and enslaved his people. But Darrow is determined to fight back. Risking everything to transform himself and breach Gold society, Darrow has battled to survive the cutthroat rivalries that breed Society’s mightiest warriors, climbed the ranks, and waited patiently to unleash the revolution that will tear the hierarchy apart from within. Finally, the time has come. But devotion to honor and hunger for vengeance run deep on both sides. Darrow and his comrades-in-arms face powerful enemies without scruple or mercy. Among them are some Darrow once considered friends. To win, Darrow will need to inspire those shackled in darkness to break their chains, unmake the world their cruel masters have built, and claim a destiny too long denied—and too glorious to surrender.

CAMION BLANC by Daniel Lesueur Summary

Un demi-siècle tout rond ! Un demi-siècle sépare « Tous les garçons et les filles » (1962), chanson emblématique des sixties, de « L’Amour fou » (2012), album magistral qui va définitivement marquer le XXIe siècle. Entre les deux, une discographie enthousiasmante et foisonnante (1963-1969) qui se fit ensuite intimiste (1970-1973) avant le grand retour (« Message personnel », 1974). Comme le chantait Georges Brassens, tout est bon chez elle, y a rien à jeter, malgré quelques compromissions (« Tamalou », « Musique saoule », « Jazzy rétro Satanas ») qui, paradoxalement, lui permirent d’accéder à une plus grande indépendance artistique. 365 chansons en français et près de la moitié en langues étrangères (anglais, italien, allemand, espagnol, portugais) ont forgé en cinquante ans une reconnaissance internationale bien méritée… Un coffre dont on extrait les bijoux un par un, au gré de notre humeur du moment, du sautillant « Comment te dire adieu » à l’éblouissant mais déchirant « Normandia ».
