From the beloved, best-selling author of The Dovekeepers, a mesmerizing new novel about the electric and impassioned love between two vastly different souls in New York during the volatile first decades of the 20th century. Coney Island: Coralie Sardie is the daughter of the impresario behind The Museum of Extraordinary Things, a boardwalk freak show that amazes and stimulates the crowds. An exceptional swimmer, Coralie appears as the Mermaid in her father's "museum", alongside performers like the Wolfman, the Butterfly Girl, and a 100-year-old turtle. One night Coralie stumbles upon a striking young man photographing moonlit trees in the woods off the Hudson River. The dashing photographer is Eddie Cohen, a Russian immigrant who has run away from his father's Lower East Side Orthodox community and his job as an apprentice tailor. When Eddie captures with his camera the devastation on the streets of New York following the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, he becomes embroiled in the mystery behind a young woman's disappearance. New York itself becomes a riveting character as Hoffman weaves her magic, romance, and masterful storytelling to unite Coralie and Eddie in a sizzling, tender, and moving story of young love in tumultuous times. The Museum of Extraordinary Things is Hoffman at her most spellbinding. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Judith Light, Grace Gummer, Zach Appelman.

This book presents the diverse photo series Robert Lebeck made in 1968, which form an alternative view of the year when social conflict and personal rebellion against authoritarian traditions found their passionate and often violent expression. Upheaval, protest, perseverance and failure-themes that are not always explored in retrospective mythicizing views of 1968-are clearly expressed in Lebeck's photos, taken in locations from New York to Bogotá and Wolfsburg. Whether dealing with "Divorced Women," Rudi Dutschke in Prague, Robert Kennedy's funeral or Joseph Beuys at documenta, contemporary history encounters the integrity of photo reportage in Lebeck's work. "The year of the student protests took place without me," Lebeck recalls of 1968 in his autobiography. "When the barricades were burning in Paris, I was working in Florida on a series about two murdered co-eds, when students began protesting in front of the Springer Building, I was photographing the christening of Hildegard Knef's baby, and when Russian troops marched into Prague, I was accompanying the pope's visit to Bogotá." A closer examination of Lebeck's contact sheets, prints and reportages made during this epoch-making year on behalf of Stern, then one of Germany's highest-circulation magazines, and presented in this book, reveal how Lebeck's photos, despite his own assessment, capture the social changes of the time.

Soviet and Russian Lunar Exploration

When, in July 1969, the Americans decisively beat the Soviet Union in the race to put an astronaut on the moon, this event had profound historical, scientific and political implications. This book tells the story of the Soviet and Russian lunar programme, from its origins to the reconsideration of a lunar programme in the present-day federal Russian space programme. Following Sputnik, the first Soviet lunar flights achieved the key goals of hitting, circling and photographing the moon in 1959. The Soviet Union planned to achieve the biggest prize of them all -the first person to land on the moon - and built all the key spaceships required to do so, such as a lunar orbiter and lander. Brian Harvey describes the techniques devised by the USSR for lunar landing, from the LK lunar module to the LOK lunar orbiter and tested versions in Earth orbit. He asks whether these systems would have worked and, examining how well they were tested, concludes that they would have: the Soviet Union lost the moon race for political, not technical reasons. Designs for moon bases were even drawn up. In the end, the Soviet Union ran an impressive series of robotic missions from 1968 to 1976 to circle the moon, map the far side, conduct scientific observations from orbit, recover samples and rove over the surface. The scientific haul from these missions is surveyed: what was actually learned about the moon, its rocks and the lunar environment, that will be useful for the present plans by the United States to return to the moon and for other countries, such as India and China, to conduct their own lunar exploration. The book opens in Surgut, Siberia, in August 1976, with a largely forgotten event: the return to Earth after a three-day journey from the moon, under a single parachute, of the tiny Luna 24 cabin, with a core sample drilled deep into the Sea of Crises, a remarkable scientific and engineering achievement. It ends with an examination of projected missions, from plans to explore the far side and set up lunar observatories to the Luna Glob explorer of the 1990s. There is also discussion of lunar tourism, using a modernized version of the Zond spacecraft which flew around the moon from1968 to 1970. TOC:Author's acknowledgements.- Prologue.- Origins of Soviet lunar exploration.- The first moon probes.- Planning the lunar landing.- Soft landers and orbiters.- The first cosmonauts to the moon.- Around the moon.- Samplers, rovers and orbiters.- Return to the moon.- Bibliographic note and bibliography.- List of all Soviet moon probes.- Where are they now?
