The first English-language book to document the men who emerged from the gulags to become Russia´s much-feared crime class: the vory v zakone Mark Galeotti is the go-to expert on organized crime in Russia, consulted by governments and police around the world. Now, Western readers can explore the fascinating history of the vory v zakone, a group that has survived and thrived amid the changes brought on by Stalinism, the Cold War, the Afghan War, and the end of the Soviet experiment. The Vory-as the Russian mafia is also known-was born early in the twentieth century, largely in the gulags and criminal camps, where they developed their unique culture. Identified by their signature tattoos, members abided by the Thieves´ Code, a strict system that forbade all paid employment and cooperation with law enforcement and the state. Based on two decades of on-the-ground research, Galeotti´s captivating study details the Vory´s journey to power from their early days to their adaptation to modern-day Russia´s free-wheeling oligarchy and global opportunities beyond.
From the depths of the poverty-stricken West Virginia coal mines to the heights of power as one of the nation´s most prominent and feared labor organizers, ´´Big Dan´´ Huggins is a hero worthy of Harold Robbins´ attention. After its release in 1979, Memories of Another Day spent 24 weeks on The New York Times best sellers list, topping the list at number one and now it´s available for digital download. Recognized as one of the world´s most captivating storytellers, Robbins has written what is arguably the most significant book ever published about the rise of the labor unions in America. Born to a life of violence and tragedy, Dan becomes one of the most powerful and dangerous labor organizers in the country - at the expense of his personal relationships. He´s a man who embraced violence, fierce ambition, lust and a deep hunger for justice even as he accumulated personal wealth, fame, and power. The novel opens at Dan´s funeral, where his estranged son Jonathan is relieved by his father´s death. But Jonathan is quickly thrust into his father´s role and must return to his father´s origins to better understand the man who shaped his past and continues to shape his future. Looking into the lives and childhoods of both father and son, Memories of Another Day gives a close look into the perks - and costs - of power. Robbins´ gift for combining popular fiction with the most pertinent subjects of the twentieth century allowed him to create a snapshot in time. In this novel, Robbins creates a magnificent epic portrait of 50 years of the bitter birth and tarnished maturity of American labor. Relevant, respectful, and engaging, Memories of Another Day proves once again why Harold Robbins´ books have sold more copies than almost any other American writer in history. 1. Language: English.

The New York Times restaurant critic´s heartbreaking and hilarious account of how he learned to love food just enough after decades of struggling with his outsize appetite. Frank Bruni was born round, round as in stout, chubby, and hungry, always and endlessly hungry. He grew up in a big, loud Italian family in White Plains, New York, where meals were epic, outsize affairs. At those meals, he demonstrated one of his foremost qualifications for his future career: an epic, outsize love of food. But Bruni´s relationship with eating was tricky, and his difficulties with managing it began early. When Bruni was named the restaurant critic for The New York Times in 2004, he knew enough to be nervous. The restaurant critic at the Times performs one of the most closely watched tasks in the epicurean universe; a bumpy ride was certain, especially for someone who had never written about food, someone who for years had been busy writing about politics, presidential campaigns, and the pope. What qualified him to be one of the most loved and hated tastemakers in the New York food world? Did his decades-long obsession with food suffice?Food was his friend and enemy both, something he craved but feared, and his new-job jitters focused primarily on whether he´d finally made some sense of that relationship .In this coveted job, he´d face down his enemy at meal after indulgent meal. As his grandmother often put it, ´´Born round, you don´t die square.´´ Would he fall back into his old habits or could he establish a truce with the food on his plate?Born Round traces the highly unusual path Bruni traveled to become a restaurant critic; it is the captivating account of an unpredictable journalistic ride from an intern´s desk at Newsweek to a dream job at The New York Times, as well as the brutally honest story of Bruni´s lifelong, often painful, struggle with food. 1.
