Summary

Woodrow Wilson, a disciple of Walter Bagehot, considered the United States Constitution to be cumbersome and open to corruption. He favored a parliamentary system for the United States and in the early 1880s wrote, "I ask you to put this question to yourselves, should we not draw the Executive and Legislature closer together? Should we not, on the one hand, give the individual leaders of opinion in Congress a better chance to have an intimate party in determining who should be president, and the president, on the other hand, a better chance to approve himself a statesman, and his advisers capable men of affairs, in the guidance of Congress."
Essays presented in this book shed light to Wilsons's political thought and works.

    A frank, smart and captivating memoir by the daughter of Apple founder Steve Jobs.Born on a farm and named in a field by her parents—artist Chrisann Brennan and Steve Jobs—Lisa Brennan-Jobs’s childhood unfolded in a rapidly changing Silicon Valley. When she was young, Lisa’s father was a mythical figure who was rarely present in her life. As she grew older, her father took an interest in her, ushering her into a new world of mansions, vacations, and private schools. His attention was thrilling, but he could also be cold, critical and unpredictable. When her relationship with her mother grew strained in high school, Lisa decided to move in with her father, hoping he’d become the parent she’d always wanted him to be.Small Fry is Lisa Brennan-Jobs’s poignant story of childhood and growing up. Scrappy, wise, and funny, young Lisa is an unforgettable guide, marveling at the particular magic of growing up in this family, in this place and time, while grappling with her feelings of illegitimacy and shame. Part portrait of a complex family, part love letter to California in the seventies and eighties, Small Fry is an enthralling story by an insightful new literary voice.

    Acclaimed as one of the sharpest political intellects of his generation, David Laws saw his ministerial career nosedive before it had begun when, after only seventeen days as Chief Secretary to the Treasury, he was forced to resign when unintended breaches of parliamentary expenses rules came to light. You can’t keep a good man down, however, and he returned to government, where he was also responsible for implementation of the coalition agreement and planning the Lib Dems’ strategy in the run-up to the 2015 election. 
    David began writing a diary in March 2012 and continued writing it throughout his ministerial career and up to the 2015 election, which devastated the Liberal Democrats in Parliament. 
    Frank, acerbic, sometimes shocking and often funny, Coalition Diaries chronicles the historic Liberal Democrat–Conservative coalition government, offering extraordinary pen portraits of all the personalities involved, some of whom were cast aside at the election or put to the knife after Brexit, while others are active in today’s government.

    This Japanese literature collection contains four translated stories from two of Japan's most beloved and acclaimed fiction writers.The Izu Dancer, Yasunari Kawabata's first work to bring him recognition as a writer, is a novella about six Izu Peninsula travelers.  As the six travelers journey together, intimacy develops and friendship overcomes class differences.  Capturing the shy eroticism of adolescence, The Izu Dancer is a charming picture of the times.Yasushi Inoue's The Counterfeiter, although set in modern times, poses universal questions that transcend culture an era.  Abasute and The Full Moon both explore themes of separation, loneliness, and isolation.  Through the gloomy tales, Inoue's compassion shines, revealing yet another aspect of an author known for his vivid precision and economy of words.  Inoue's stories are at least partially autobiographical, and Inoue's attitudes toward human destiny and fatalism are strongly influenced by his separation from his parents at an early age—yet all of his stories reveal his great compassion for his fellow human being.

    This book is a sequel to my first hotel book, Great American Hoteliers: Pioneers of the Hotel Industry AuthorHouse 2009. It tells the fascinating and unpredictable stories of seventeen hotel pioneers who were (and are) important in the development of the hotel industry in the United States. Many of them are relatively unknown and lost in the dustbin of American history.
    
    Their biographies comprise this sequel called Great American Hoteliers Volume 2: Pioneers of the Hotel Industry:
    
    	  Stewart William Bainum (1920-2014) 
    	  Curtis Leroy Carlson (1914-1999) 
    	  Cecil Burke Day (1934-1978) 
    	  Louis Jacob Dinkler (1864-1928) 
    	  Eugene Chase Eppley (1884-1958) 
    	  Roy C. Kelley (1905-1997) 
    	  Arnold S. Kirkeby (1901-1962) 
    	  Julius Manger (1868-1937) 
    	  Robert R. Meyer (1882-1947) 
    	  Albert Pick, Jr. (1895-1977) 
    	  Jay Pritzker (1922-1999) 
    	  Harris Rosen (1939) 
    	  Ian Schrager (1946) 
    	  Vernon B. Stouffer (1901-1974) 
    	  William Cornelius Van Horne (1843-1915) 
    	  Robert E. Woolley (1935) 
    	  Stephen Allen Wynn (1942) 
    
    As you will note, four of these great American hoteliers are alive and productive as I write this sequel: Harris Rosen, Ian Schrager, Robert Woolley and Steve Wynn.
