Summary

From the author of The History of Diners in New Jersey comes a collection of true stories that capture the spirit of the Garden State.   Diners are where communities across New Jersey go to celebrate milestones, form lifetime bonds and take comfort in food. Daily life at the counter or in the booth inspires sentimental recollections that reflect the state’s spirit and history. In Stories from New Jersey Diners, local historian Michael C. Gabriele documents colorful stories from the Diner Capital of the World.   Late-night eats fueled Wildwood’s wild rock-and-roll days. An entrepreneur from India traveled eight thousand miles to open a diner in Shamong. From an impromptu midnight wedding in an Elizabeth lunch wagon to a Vietnam veteran sustained by a heartfelt note from a beloved Mount Holly waitress, these are true tales from the “Diner Capital of the World.”

    Pamela Smart conspired with her teenage lover to kill her husband. This is her story—told by the acclaimed true crime author of Cellar of Horror.   Pam and Gregg Smart lived a seemingly storybook existence, the newlyweds very much in love. All of this was shattered when Gregg was senselessly shot to death in 1990. In the trial that followed, staggering revelations came out as to the motive behind the killing: Pam Smart had seduced a fifteen-year-old boy into murdering her husband.   Master of true crime Ken Englade paints a portrait of a trial that gripped the nation in its scintillating tale of sex and murder. At its center is a woman who never quite grew up, and the reason why she had her husband murdered is the most stunning twist.   “Ken Englade is one of the most astute observers of America’s wild side.” —Jack Olsen, bestselling author of Salt of the Earth

    "I dreamed of New York, I am going there." 
    On May 31, 1953, twenty-year-old Sylvia Plath arrived in New York City for a one-month stint at "the intellectual fashion magazine" Mademoiselle to be a guest editor for its prestigious annual college issue. Over the next twenty-six days, the bright, blond New England collegian lived at the Barbizon Hotel, attended Balanchine ballets, watched a game at Yankee Stadium, and danced at the West Side Tennis Club. She typed rejection letters to writers from The New Yorker and ate an entire bowl of caviar at an advertising luncheon. She stalked Dylan Thomas and fought off an aggressive diamond-wielding delegate from the United Nations. She took hot baths, had her hair done, and discovered her signature drink (vodka, no ice). Young, beautiful, and on the cusp of an advantageous career, she was supposed to be having the time of her life. 
    Drawing on in-depth interviews with fellow guest editors whose memories infuse these pages, Elizabeth Winder reveals how these twenty-six days indelibly altered how Plath saw herself, her mother, her friendships, and her romantic relationships, and how this period shaped her emerging identity as a woman and as a writer. Pain, Parties, Work—the three words Plath used to describe that time—shows how Manhattan's alien atmosphere unleashed an anxiety that would stay with her for the rest of her all-too-short life. 
    Thoughtful and illuminating, this captivating portrait invites us to see Sylvia Plath before The Bell Jar, before she became an icon—a young woman with everything to live for.

Established within the Royal Air Force Bomber Command, No. 100 Group was dedicated to the complex business of electronic warfare.

In this meticulously researched volume, aviation historian Steve Bond and Squadron Leader Richard Forder RAF (Ret’d) shed important light on the work of No. 100 Group by analyzing one of its Bomber Support Squadrons, No. 223. Equipped with former USAAF Liberators, No. 223 Squadron operated from August of 1944 to the end of the European war. Its primary role was protecting Bomber Command Main Force ops through the use of experimental radio and radar countermeasures against German defenses. With unique access to original documents and firsthand accounts from both sides of the conflict, Forder and Bond present a detailed and comprehensive picture of the secret activities of these special operatives and their effect on German defenses.

    History can hardly be complete without talking about the role women played in forming the history of the world. They changed societies and beliefs, being the reason why empires toppled and rose to glory. There is hardly enough reason to believe that women were insignificant in a society because no matter how many wars men fought and the ways in which they built empires, women often played an extremely important part in many wars and the building of many civilizations. 
    Women were highly regarded in many ancient cultures. The history of woman describes their lives from early times to now. Reflecting the manner in which they lived and how they were treated. We will also shed light on women who were considered luminaries of their times and talk about the changes they brought in the society. 
    This book describes the role of women and their significance in different eras and regions of the world. The place they held in various cultures and how they influenced the growth or downfall of different civilizations and empires. For most of the world’s history, it was written primarily by men and it usually included an account of the activities of men in war, politics and diplomacy. Even traders were mainly men and women usually belonged in the background and hardly history did not account a lot of their works. 
    With the help of this book, you will be able to understand the significance of woman in history and how they led their lives in the past. Since history usually accounts for events that held great value, the presence of women in history is close to insignificant because they were usually seen in a sex-stereotyped form as wives, mothers, daughters and mistresses.
