DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Seven years in the making, this is the complete account of the career, music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix, based entirely on first-person recollections and new, exclusive photographs and documents. Since his death in 1970 at the age of twenty-seven, Jimi Hendrix has been mythologised as a risk-taker who lost it all - and not the serious musician whose sole desire was to play and write great music. Now, authors John McDermott and Eddie Kramer (Jimi's long-time producer) set the record straight. From Jimi's Greenwich Village days to his Electric Ladybird nights, they chronicle the innovative techniques of a pioneer who painstakingly worked to perfect the sounds others couldn't even imagine, despite being modest to the point of shyness about his own singing talent. Key figures in his inner circle such as his manager Chas Chandler shed light on Jimi's whirlwind three-and-a-half year career. Hendrix: Setting the Record Straight is the definitive biography of a legend whose recording career transformed the essence of rock and roll.

Author: Eli Faber

Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Lays to rest the controversial myth of Jewish involvement in the slave trade In the wake of the civil rights movement, a great divide has opened up between African American and Jewish communities. What was historically a harmonious and supportive relationship has suffered from a powerful and oft-repeated legend, that Jews controlled and masterminded the slave trade and owned slaves on a large scale, well in excess of their own proportion in the population. In this groundbreaking book, likely to stand as the definitive word on the subject, Eli Faber cuts through this cloud of mystification to recapture an important chapter in both Jewish and African diasporic history. Focusing on the British empire, Faber assesses the extent to which Jews participated in the institution of slavery through investment in slave trading companies, ownership of slave ships, commercial activity as merchants who sold slaves upon their arrival from Africa, and direct ownership of slaves. His unprecedented original research utilizing shipping and tax records, stock-transfer ledgers, censuses, slave registers, and synagogue records reveals, once and for all, the minimal nature of Jews' involvement in the subjugation of Africans in the Americas. A crucial corrective, Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade lays to rest one of the most contested historical controversies of our time.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In England in 2007 Peter Connelly, a 17 month old little boy - known initially in the media reporting as 'Baby P' - died following terrible neglect and abuse. Fifteen months later, his mother, her boyfriend and the boyfriend's brother were sent to prison. But media attention turned on those who worked to protect children, especially the social workers and their managers, who became the focus of the reporting and of the blame. This book tells what happened to 'Baby P', how the story was told and became focused on the social workers, its threatening consequences for those who work to protect children, and its considerable impact on the child protection system in England. This is the first book to draw together all evidence available on this high profile case and will make a unique and crucial contribution to the topic. It will make essential reading for everyone who is concerned about child protection and the care of children and about the media's impact. This revised edition contains a new Afterword bringing the story up to date.
