Download or read book Summay of Robert Lacey's Meyer Lansky written by Everest Media, and published by Everest Media LLC. This book was released on 2022-05-30T22:59:00Z with total page 75 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The name Meyer is a Jewish name that has no equivalent among the names of other faiths or races. It is thought to have originated in the second century, with a rabbi whose writings won him a special following. #2 Meyer Lansky was born in Grodno, Russia, in 1902. His family were middle class Jews who ran a business and lived in a stone townhouse. His grandfather was a respected businessman who taught him about the hardships of Jewish history and the promise of Palestine. #3 The Jewish community of Grodno was met with anti-Semitism in the late 1800s, and they had to defend themselves. They formed a self-defense organization, and practiced shooting in the woods. #4 The journey to America did not get off to a good start. In the bewilderment of the freight cars, the quarantine stations, and the endless waiting in lines, Yetta Suchowljansky handed over the money for her and her sons’ steamship tickets to a Jew she met who offered to help.

Sample Book Insights: #1 The birth of Prince Harry’s first child in May 2019 offered the two brothers a chance to reconcile and embrace. They had tiffs and troubles before the wedding in 2018, but the birth of a spring baby brings everyone together. #2 The warming pan was the electric blanket or rubber hot water bottle of its day, and it was used in 1688 to smuggle a healthy substitute baby into the birthing bed of Mary of Modena, wife of the hated Catholic King James II. #3 The birth of Prince Charles in 1948 was the first post-1688 heir to the British throne to be born without the scrutiny of the people. In 1982 and 1984, Prince William and Harry were born, and they brought their sons out onto the steps of the Lindo Wing for public inspection. #4 The birth of baby Sussex was delayed for two weeks, and when he finally arrived, he was healthy but weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces. The couple returned to Windsor with their son undetected.
Download or read book Saudi Arabia written by Peter W. Wilson and published by M.E. Sharpe. This book was released on 1994-07-20 with total page 310 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Drawing on personal experiences, hundreds of interviews, and unpublished primary sources, veteran journalists Peter Wilson and Douglas Graham examine the challenges confronting the House of Saud in the wake of the war in the Persian Gulf. Among the provocative topics discussed are: Saudi Arabia's growing indebtedness, and the government's inability to balance its budget; the reasons why the kingdom's armed forces were unable to defend the country despite hundreds of billions of dollars in arms spending; the country's worsening unemployment problem; the growing strength of Saudi Arabia's fundamentalists, who possibly could topple the regime. Saudi Arabia is essential reading for scholars and students of the Middle East, Islamic culture, and international affairs.
Download or read book Dreams of a Saudi Princess written by Karolin Anderson and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2015-03-11 with total page 250 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Teach my children to think!” exclaimed the beautiful young princess. “They’ve had enough facts, facts and more facts stuffed into their heads in our public schools.” She dreamed that her children would be able to speak and negotiate with leaders of countries from around the world as they assumed their eventual roles in governmental leadership. She dreamed that her children would be able to lead Saudi Arabia into the future. Unlike the Wahhabi and Hanbali clerics who considered the faculty of reasoning to be evil, she realized that a Western education was consistent with her Islamic faith stating that American schools taught students how to think without telling them what to think. The Andersons didn’t realize at the time how astute the statement was but would soon learn as they became immersed in the Islamic world of Sharia law.
Download or read book From Servants of the Empire to Everyday Heroes written by Tobias Harper and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2020-02-13 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the twentieth century, the British Crown appointed around a hundred thousand people - military and civilian - in Britain and the British Empire to honours and titles. For outsiders, and sometimes recipients too, these jumbles of letters are tantalizingly confusing: OM, MBE, GCVO, CH, KB, or CBE. Throughout the century, this system expanded to include different kinds of people, while also shrinking in its imperial scope with the declining empire. Through these dual processes, this profoundly hierarchical system underwent a seemingly counter-intuitive change: it democratized. Why and how did the British government change this system? And how did its various publics respond to it? This study addresses these questions directly by looking at the history of the honours system in the wider context of the major historical changes in Britain and the British Empire in the twentieth century. In particular, it looks at the evolution of this hierarchical, deferential system amidst democratization and decolonization. It focuses on the system's largest-and most important-components: the Order of the British Empire, the Knight Bachelor, and the lower ranks of other Orders. By creatively analysing the politics and administration of the system alongside popular responses to it in diaries, letters, newspapers, and memoirs, Tobias Harper shows the many different meanings that honours took on for the establishment, dissidents, and recipients. He also shows the ways in which the system succeeded and failed to order and bring together divided societies.

Book excerpt: A deaf artist and former orphan finds the twin sister she never knew she had in this “gripping, entertaining” novel of family bonds and self-discovery (Cathy Lamb, author of Henry’s Sisters). A proudly deaf artist living in Philadelphia, Lacey Gears is exactly where she wants to be. At twenty-eight years old, she rarely thinks about her difficult childhood in a home for disabled orphans. That is, until she receives a shocking letter that begins, “You have a sister. A twin to be exact . . .” When Lacey learns that her hearing twin, Monica, experienced the normal childhood she was denied, she angrily sets out to find Monica and her biological parents. But the truth about Monica's life and the reason for the twins’ separation is far from simple. And every answer Lacey discovers only raises more questions. “At once a story about love and loss, family and friends, the world of the hearing and that of the deaf, My Sister’s Voice satisfies on many levels.” —Holly Chamberlin, author of The Family Beach House

Download or read book The Crown written by Robert Lacey and published by Bonnier Publishing Ltd.. This book was released on 2017-10-05 with total page 481 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The official book to the Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winning Netflix drama, The Crown, with extensive research, additional material and beautifully reproduced photographs. 'The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me God.' Elizabeth Mountbatten never expected her father to die so suddenly, so young, leaving her with a throne to fill and a global institution to govern. Crowned at 25, she was already a wife and mother. Follow the journey of a woman learning to become a queen. As Britain lifted itself out of the shadow of war, the new monarch faced her own challenges. Her mother doubted her marriage; her uncle-in-exile derided her abilities; her husband resented the sacrifice of his career and family name; while her rebellious sister embarked on a love affair that threatened the centuries-old links between the Church and the Crown. This is the story of how Elizabeth II drew on every ounce of resolve to ensure that the Crown always came out on top. Netflix's original series The Crown dramatised Peter Morgan's powerful portrayal of Britain's longest-reigning monarch. Written by royal biographer Robert Lacey, The Crown: The Inside History adds expert and in-depth detail to the events of the series, painting an intimate portrait of life inside Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street. Here is Elizabeth II as we've never seen her before.
Download or read book Inside The Mirage written by Thomas Lippman and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2008-11-10 with total page 416 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia has always been a marriage of convenience, not affection. In a bargain cemented by President Roosevelt and Saudi Arabia's founding king in 1945, Americans gained access to Saudi oil, and the Saudis sent the dollars back with purchases of American planes, American weapons, American construction projects and American know-how that brought them modernization, education and security. The marriage has suited both sides. But how long can it last? In Inside the Mirage , veteran Middle East journalist Thomas W. Lippman shows that behind the official proclamations of friendship and alliance lies a complex relationship that has often been strained by the mutual aversion of two very different societies. Today the U.S.-Saudi partnership faces its greatest challenge as younger Saudis less enamored of America rise to prominence and Americans, scorched by Saudi-based terrorism, question the value of their ties to the desert kingdom. With so much at stake for the entire, ever-volatile Middle East, this compelling and absolutely necessary account brings the light of new research onto the relationship between these two countries and the future of their partnership.
