    The astonishing story of America's airwaves, the two friends-one a media mogul, the other a famous inventor-who made them available to us, and the government which figured out how to put a price on air. 
    This is the origin story of the airwaves-the foundational technology of the communications age-as told through the forty-year friendship of an entrepreneurial industrialist and a brilliant inventor. 
    David Sarnoff, the head of RCA and equal parts Steve Jobs, Jack Welch, and William Randolph Hearst, was the greatest supporter of his friend Edwin Armstrong, developer of the first amplifier, the modern radio transmitter, and FM radio. Sarnoff was convinced that Armstrong's inventions had the power to change the way societies communicated with each other forever. He would become a visionary captain of the media industry, even predicting the advent of the Internet. 
    In the mid-1930s, however, when Armstrong suspected Sarnoff of orchestrating a cadre of government officials to seize control of the FM airwaves, he committed suicide. Sarnoff had a very different view of who his friend's enemies were. 
    Many corrupt politicians and corporations saw in Armstrong's inventions the opportunity to commodify our most ubiquitous natural resource-the air. This early alliance between high tech and business set the precedent for countless legal and industrial battles over broadband and licensing bandwidth, many of which continue to influence policy and debate today.

    Korea - A Very Short Introduction

    Having spent centuries in the shadows of its neighbors China and Japan, Korea is now the object of considerable interest for radically different reasons—the South as an economic success story and for its vibrant popular culture; the North as the home to one of the world's most repressive regimes, at once both bizarre and menacing. 
    Korea: A Very Short Introduction explores the history, culture, and society of a deeply divided region. Michael Seth considers what it means to be Korean, and analyzes how the various peoples of the Korean peninsula became one of the world's most homogeneous nations, before exploring how this nation evolved, in a single lifetime, into today's sharply contrasting societies. He also discusses how Korea fits into the larger narrative of both East Asian and world history, economically, politically, and socially.

    A heart-warming and hilarious family memoir of growing up as one of eleven siblings raised by a single dad in Northern Ireland at the end of the Troubles. Séamas O’Reilly’s mother died when he was five, leaving him, his ten (!) brothers and sisters, and their beloved father in their sprawling bungalow in rural Derry. It was the 1990s; the Troubles were a background rumble, but Séamas was more preoccupied with dinosaurs, Star Wars, and the actual location of heaven than the political climate. ­  An instant bestseller in Ireland, Did Ye Hear Mammy Died? is a book about a family of loud, argumentative, musical, sarcastic, grief-stricken siblings, shepherded into adulthood by a man whose foibles and reticence were matched only by his love for his children and his determination that they would flourish.  “In this joyous, wildly unconventional memoir, Séamas O'Reilly tells the story of losing his mother as a child and growing up with ten siblings in Northern Ireland during the final years of the Troubles as a raucous comedy, a grand caper that is absolutely bursting with life.”―Patrick Radden Keefe, NYT bestselling author of Say Nothing and Empire of Pain One of NPR’s Best Books of the Year

    The author of The Crack in The Cosmic Egg (Julian Press 1971) and Bond of Power (Dutton 1981) tells of a metamorphosis that has occurred in his life--one he claims is available for each of us, and one based upon our human birthright. Our rational mind can only take us so far, and then we all must tap into the deep well of wisdom residing within.

    The Fourth Force - The Untold...

    Set up in August 1905, the Royal Fleet Auxiliary was originally a logistic support organization, part of the Navy proper but run on civilian lines, comprising a miscellaneous and very unglamorous collection of colliers, store ships and harbor craft. Just over a century later it has evolved beyond recognition: its ships compare in size, cost and sophistication with all but the largest warships, and the RFA itself has developed into an essential arm of all three Services. It is truly the Fourth Force  as it is known to its own personnel  and without it, the current worldwide deployment of British service men and women would be simply impossible.This book charts the veritable revolution that has overtaken the RFA since the end of the Second World War. New technology and techniques reflect the rapid growth in the importance of logistics in modern warfare, while the broadening role of the RFA is to be seen in the history of its operations, many of them little known to the public. Woven together from a combination of technical ship data, official correspondence and personal recollections, it is predominantly about the men and women of the RFA and their stories  an insight into the underreported history of a service whose initials unofficially translate as Ready For Anything.

    A Ukrainian-born British MP’s memoir of being sold into slavery by Nazis as a child—and the long journey that led to his career in politics and business.   Born in a small farming town in Western Ukraine that was under Polish rule at the time—but would soon be occupied and annexed by the Soviet Union and then invaded by the Germans—Stefan Terlezki was torn from his family, abducted and sold by the Nazis into slavery in Austria.   Eventually, after many adventures and misadventures, he made his way to a DP camp and, finally, the UK. He would go on to be elected as a Member of Parliament for Cardiff, and become a close friend of Margaret Thatcher and other major political figures. He was also an accomplished businessman and served as chairman of his local football club, Cardiff City FC. In this book, he tells his “remarkable” story (BBC News).   “A moving life story.” —Wales Online
