Memories of a Pure Spring
Memories of a Pure Spring is a mesmerizing portrait of modern Vietnam and its people who struggle to survive under the complexities of a post-war regime. During the Vietnam war, Hung, a well-known composer, becomes enchanted by the voice and beauty of a young peasant girl named Suong. He invites her to join his troupe; she becomes his wife and his star performer. But after the war, Hung loses his job, setting off a series of events that drive him and Suong into a destructive spiral. One of Vietnam's most popular writers, Duong Thu Huong draws on her own experiences to describe life at the battlefront, the conditions of a "re-education" camp, and the texture and rhythm, scents and sounds, of a provincial Vietnamese city. Most of all, she tells a haunting, universal story of failed love.

IN THE SHADOW OF THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL: Congressional Cemetery and the Memory of the
This study explores the multiple ways in which Congressional Cemetery has been positioned for some two hundred years in "the shadow" of the U.S. Capitol. The narrative proceeds chronologically, discussing the burial ground during three periods: a) The antebellum years; b) The years from the end of the Civil War to approximately 1970, when the site progressively deteriorated; c) The period from the early 1970s to 2007, when both public and private organizations worked to preserve the physical site and the memory of what it has been and continues to represent. This monograph on Congressional Cemetery focuses on the dominant narrative associated with the site: its legacy as the first national burial ground in the United States. Given this emphasis, the text presents a political and cultural analysis of the cemetery, with particular focus on the participation of the U.S. Congress. "This book makes historians and many others aware of a fascinating and complicated history. Moreover, it not only details the long history of the cemetery, but it uses it to explore the nature of historic memorials generally in the creation of national memory." -Steven Diner, Chancellor of Rutgers University at Newark. "The Johnsons have done an excellent job of mining a wide range of sources and conveying ...

Now, fresh from a new tidal wave of tours and recordings, David Cassidy tells his own story, an irreverent, unflinchingly honest saga of his experience with: The Partridge Family, the seventies megahit TV sitcom that paired him with his real-life step-mom, Shirley Jones, and that launched Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith; the endless cavalcade of groupies that invaded his bed, and his passionate, often stormy relationships with fellow stars Susan Dey and Meredith Baxter; revealing encounters with superstars John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Elvis, the Beach Boys, and others; the singing career that sold over 20 million albums - and brought him a grand total in royalties of less than $15,000; the exhiliration of the spotlight, and the nights of desolation after the fans went home.
