Cultural commentator John Strausbaugh's The Village is the first complete history of Greenwich Village, the prodigiously influential and infamous New York City neighborhood. From the Dutch settlers and Washington Square patricians, to the Triangle Shirtwaist fire and Prohibition-era speakeasies; from Abstract Expressionism and beatniks, to Stonewall and AIDS, the connecting narratives of The Village tell the story of America itself. Illustrated with historic black-and-white photographs, The Village features lively, well-researched profiles of many of the people who made Greenwich Village famous, including Thomas Paine, Walt Whitman, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Mark Twain, Margaret Sanger, Eugene O’Neill, Marcel Duchamp, Upton Sinclair, Willa Cather, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Jackson Pollock, Anais Nin, Edward Albee, Charlie Parker, W. H. Auden, Woody Guthrie, James Baldwin, Maurice Sendak, E. E. Cummings, and Bob Dylan.

The electrifying story of the turbulent year when the sixties ended and America teetered on the edge of revolution NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH As the 1960s drew to a close, the United States was coming apart at the seams. From August 1969 to August 1970, the nation witnessed nine thousand protests and eighty-four acts of arson or bombings at schools across the country. It was the year of the My Lai massacre investigation, the Cambodia invasion, Woodstock, and the Moratorium to End the War. The American death toll in Vietnam was approaching fifty thousand, and the ascendant counterculture was challenging nearly every aspect of American society. Witness to the Revolution, Clara Bingham’s unique oral history of that tumultuous time, unveils anew that moment when America careened to the brink of a civil war at home, as it fought a long, futile war abroad. Woven together from one hundred original interviews, Witness to the Revolution provides a firsthand narrative of that period of upheaval in the words of those closest to the action—the activists, organizers, radicals, and resisters who manned the barricades of what Students for a Democratic Society leader Tom Hayden called “the Great Refusal.” We meet Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn of the Weather Underground; Daniel Ellsberg, the former Defense Department employee who released the Pentagon Papers; feminist theorist Robin Morgan; actor and activist Jane Fonda; and many others whose powerful personal stories capture the essence of an era. We witness how the killing of four students at Kent State turned a straitlaced social worker into a hippie, how the civil rights movement gave birth to the women’s movement, and how opposition to the war in Vietnam turned college students into prisoners, veterans into peace marchers, and intellectuals into bombers. With lessons that can be applied to our time, Witness to the Revolution is more than just a record of the death throes of the Age of Aquarius. Today, when America is once again enmeshed in racial turmoil, extended wars overseas, and distrust of the government, the insights contained in this book are more relevant than ever. Praise for Witness to the Revolution “Especially for younger generations who didn’t live through it, Witness to the Revolution is a valuable and entertaining primer on a moment in American history the likes of which we may never see again.”—Bryan Burrough, The Wall Street Journal “A gripping oral history of the centrifugal social forces tearing America apart at the end of the ’60s . . . This is rousing reportage from the front lines of US history.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “The familiar voices and the unfamiliar ones are woven together with documents to make this a surprisingly powerful and moving book.”—New York Times Book Review “[An] Enthralling and brilliant chronology of the period between August 1969 and September 1970.”—Buffalo News “[Bingham] captures the essence of these fourteen months through the words of movement organizers, vets, students, draft resisters, journalists, musicians, government agents, writers, and others. . . . This oral history will enable readers to see that era in a new light and with fresh sympathy for the motivations of those involved. While Bingham’s is one of many retrospective looks at that period, it is one of the most immediate and personal.”—Booklist

Diese Geschichten verändern den Blick auf die Welt Über acht Jahre hat Robin Black an dieser Sammlung von gerade einmal zehn Erzählungen geschrieben; zehn Geschichten, die von einer seltenen literarischen Reife und psychologischen Tiefe sind und die den Blick des Lesers auf die Welt, auf die Menschen und das Leben für immer verändern. Robin Blacks Erzählungen mögen an Lorrie Moore oder Alice Munro erinnern und haben doch einen ganz eigenen Ton. Denn diese Geschichten, die sich allesamt lesen wie kleine Romane, sind erfüllt von einer zutiefst berührenden menschlichen Wärme und emotionalen Weisheit. Robin Blacks Geschichten sind Erzählungen über die Liebe – und über das Fehlen oder den Verlust von Liebe, und wie unser Leben davon bestimmt und verändert wird. Da ist eine schwerkranke ältere Frau, die an der lieblosen Gedankenlosigkeit ihres Nachbarn zu zerbrechen droht. Da ist der Vater eines blinden Mädchens, den die abgöttische Liebe zu seiner Tochter selbst blind sein lässt für das elementare Verlangen der Tochter, einmal auszubrechen aus ihrem ständig behüteten Leben und zeigen zu können, wie selbständig sie eigentlich längst schon ist. Oder da ist die Frau, die damit leben lernen muss, dass der Mann, den sie liebt, bald sterben wird. In diesen zehn ungemein dichten Geschichten fängt Robin Black nicht weniger ein als die Essenz des Lebens. Sie erzählt von Schicksalsschlägen und davon, wie sie oft noch jahrelang das Leben eines Menschen prägen und bestimmen. Sie erzählt von der Liebe und wie sie sich im Lauf der Zeit verändert. Und sie erzählt davon, wie wenig wir oft von den Menschen, die uns am nächsten sind, ja, wie wenig wir oft von uns selbst verstehen. Sie schreibt über Krankheit, Verlust und Trauer, aber auch über die Kraft zum Neubeginn. Mit einem Wort: In ihrem ganz eigenen unsentimentalen und lakonischen Ton erzählt sie, wie schwierig und wie schön zugleich es sein kann, zu leben.
