In 1871, five young girls were sent by the Japanese government to the United States. Their mission: learn Western ways and return to help nurture a new generation of enlightened men to lead Japan. Raised in traditional samurai households during the turmoil of civil war, three of these unusual ambassadors - Sutematsu Yamakawa, Shige Nagai, and Ume Tsuda - grew up as typical American schoolgirls. Upon their arrival in San Francisco, they became celebrities, their travels and traditional clothing exclaimed over by newspapers across the nation. As they learned English and Western customs, their American friends grew to love them for their high spirits and intellectual brilliance. The passionate relationships they formed reveal an intimate world of cross-cultural fascination and connection. Ten years later they returned to Japan - a land grown foreign to them - determined to revolutionize women´s education. Based on in-depth archival research in Japan and in the United States, including decades of letters from between the three women and their American host families, Daughters of the Samurai is beautifully, cinematically written, a fascinating lens through which to view an extraordinary historical moment. 1.

A true collective account of President John F. Kennedy´s assassination. There are few days in American history so immortalized in public memory as November 22, 1963, the date of President John F. Kennedy´s assassination. Adding to the wealth of information about this tragic day is We Were There, a truly unique collection of firsthand accounts from the doctors and staff on scene at the hospital where JFK was immediately taken after he was shot. With the help of his former fellow staff members at Parkland Memorial Hospital, Dr. Allen Childs recreates the horrific day, from the president´s arrival in Dallas to the public announcement of his death. Childs presents a multifaceted and sentimental reflection on the day and its aftermath. In addition to detailing the sequence of events that transpired around JFK´s death, We Were There offers memories of the First Lady, insights on conspiracy theories revolving around the president´s assassination, and recollections of the death of Lee Harvey Oswald, who succumbed two days later in the same hospital where his own victim was pronounced dead. A compelling, emotional read, We Were There pays tribute to a critical event in American modern history - and to a man whose death was mourned like no other. 1. Language: English.

The Price of Defiance: James Meredith and the I...

After fighting a protracted legal battle, James Meredith broke the color barrier in 1962 as the first African American student at the University of Mississippi. The riot that followed his arrival on campus seriously wounded scores of U.S. marshals and killed two civilians; more casualties than any other clash of the civil rights era. To restore order, the Kennedy administration dispatched thousands of soldiers to Oxford. In The Price of Defiance, Charles Eagles shows that the stunning eruption of violence resulted from the ´´closed society´s´´ long defiance of the civil rights movement and federal law. Using many previously untapped sources, including FBI and U.S. marshal files, army and university records, and Meredith´s personal papers, Eagles provides invaluable background for understanding the historic moment by demonstrating the university´s - and Mississippi´s - history of aggressive resistance to desegregation from the post-World War II years on, including the deliberate flouting of federal law. Ultimately, the price of such behavior - the price of defiance - was not only the murderous riot that rocked the nation and almost closed the university but also the nation´s enduring scorn for Ole Miss and Mississippi. Eagles paints a remarkable portrait of Meredith himself by describing his unusual family background, his personal values, and his service in the U.S. Air Force, all of which prepared him for his experience at Ole Miss. Based on extraordinary research, Eagles vividly portrays the culture of segregation and the eventual desegregation of one of the last bastions of racial segregation, Ole Miss. 1. Language: English.

On a chance visit to Plymouth Rock, Tony Horwitz makes an unsettling discovery. A history buff since early childhood, expensively educated at university - a history major, no less! - he´s reached middle age with a third-grader´s grasp of early America. In fact, he´s mislaid more than a century of American history, the period separating Columbus´ landing in 1492 from the arrival of English colonists at Jamestown in 160-...something. Did nothing happen in between?Horwitz decides to find out, and in A Voyage Long and Strange he uncovers the neglected story of America´s founding by Europeans. He begins a thousand years ago, with the Vikings, and then tells the dramatic tale of conquistadors, castaways, French voyageurs, Moorish slaves, and many others who roamed and rampaged across half the states of the present-day U.S. continent, long before the Mayflower landed.To explore this history and its legacy in the present, Horwitz embarks on an epic quest of his own - trekking in search of grape-rich Vinland, Ponce de Leon´s Fountain of Youth, Coronado´s Cities of Gold, Walter Raleigh´s Lost Colonists, and other mysteries of early America. And everywhere he goes, Horwitz probes the revealing gap between fact and legend, between what we enshrine and what we forget.An irresistible blend of history, myth, and misadventure, A Voyage Long and Strange allows us to rediscover the New World for ourselves. 1.

In seinem fesselnden Sci-Fi-Thriller ARRIVAL erzählt Regisseur Denis Villeneuve (´´Sicario´´, ´´Prisoners´´) eine faszinierende Geschichte über Zukunft und Vergangenheit, Begegnung und Abschied, Schicksal und Möglichkeit. Zwölf mysteriöse Raumschiffe landen zeitgleich in unterschiedlichen Regionen der Welt. Ihre Besatzung und deren Intension - ein Rätsel. Um globale Paranoia und einen potentiellen Krieg zu verhindern, soll ein Elite-Team um die Linguistin Louise Banks (Amy Adams) und den Mathematiker Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner) im Auftrag des Militärs Kontakt herstellen. Doch das unermüdliche Streben nach Antworten gerät bald zum Rennen gegen die Zeit - die eigene und die der gesamten Menschheit. Denis Villeneuve weiß mit jedem seiner Filme zu überraschen - vom intensiven Familiendrama ´´Die Frau, die singt´´ (Oscar®-Nominierung als ´´Bester fremdsprachiger Film´´ 2011), über das packende Rache-Drama ´´Prisoners´´ bis hin zum knallharten Drogenthriller ´´Sicario´´. Mit ARRIVAL schuf er nun einen atemberaubenden Sci-Fi-Thriller, der mit einer intelligenten, außergewöhnlichen Geschichte und der eindringlichen Darsteller-Leistung der mehrfach Oscar®-nominierten Schauspieler Amy Adams (´´Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice´´, ´´American Hustle´´) und Jeremy Renner (´´The First Avenger: Civil War´´, ´´Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation´´) besticht. In weiteren Rollen spielen Forest Whitaker (´´Der Butler´´, ´´Der letzte König von Schottland´´) und Michael Stuhlbarg (´´Steve Jobs´´, ´´A Serious Man´´). Jóhann Jóhannssons (´´Sicario´´, ´´Die Entdeckung der Unendlichkeit´´) Score überzeugt mit subtiler Dynamik, für die kraftvolle Bildsprache zeichnet Bradford Young (´´Selma´´, ´´A Most Violent Year´´) verantwortlich.
