At the strangers' gate : arrivals in New York
Gopnik, Adam, author
New York : Knopf, 2017
The blue room. The blue room and the big store -- The first fall -- Food fight -- My first job -- Seeing Theo -- The simple logic of summer shirts -- Men making pictures of women wearing clothes -- The big store. SoHo, 1983 -- Writing -- Sleeping and talking -- Wanderings.

"From The New York Times best-selling author of Paris to the Moon and beloved New Yorker writer, a memoir that captures the romance of New York City in the 1980s. When Adam Gopnik and his soon-to-be-wife, Martha, left the comforts of home in Montreal for New York, the city then, much like today, was a pilgrimage site for the young, the arty, and the ambitious. But it was also becoming a city of greed, where both life's consolations and its necessities were increasingly going to the highest bidder. At the Stranger's Gate builds a portrait of this particular moment in New York through the story of this couple's journey--from their excited arrival as aspiring artists to their eventual growth into a New York family. Gopnik transports us to his tiny basement room on the Upper East Side, and later to SoHo, where he captures a unicorn: an affordable New York loft. He takes us through his professional meanderings, from graduate student-cum-library-clerk to the corridors of Conde Nast and the galleries of MoMA. Between tender and humorous reminiscences, including affectionate portraits of Richard Avedon, Robert Hughes, and Jeff Koons, among many others, Gopnik discusses the ethics of ambition, the economy of creative capital, and the peculiar anthropology of art and aspiration in New York, then and now"--

Los gavilleros : la lucha nacionalista contra la ocupación, 1916-1924
Novas, José C., 1948- author
Santo Domingo, República Dominicana : Argos, 2016
La intervención -- Factores externos y antecedentes de la ocupación -- Nacimiento y desarrollo del nuevo orden -- La Embajada de Estados Unidos y el desembarco de tropas -- Resistencia guerrillera y liderazgo de los grupos armados -- El gobierno militar y la censura -- Luchas cívicas y reconquista de la soberanía.

Scholarly study on "Los Gavilleros", a Dominican resistance guerilla movement against the U.S. Occupation of the Dominican Republic starting in 1916. The "gavilleros" enjoyed considerable support from the population since most Dominicans greatly resented the loss of their sovereignty. Having knowledge of the local terrain, they fought against the United States occupation from 1917 to 1921. The fighting in the countryside ended in a stalemate, and the guerrillas eventually agreed to a conditional surrender.

A rift in the Earth : art, memory, and the fight for a Vietnam War memorial
Reston, James, Jr., 1941- author
New York, NY : Arcade Publishing, [2017]
It shall not come near to you -- Remember us -- Nothing to add, nothing to take away -- And the winner is -- Fight as hard as you can -- Blowback -- Ex nihilo -- How Chinese are you? -- A breach of faith -- Dedication -- A kind of ocean -- The troubled marriage of true minds -- Epilogue: the noise of your songs.

A Rift in the Earth tells the remarkable story of the ferocious "art war" that raged between 1979 and 1984 over what kind of memorial should be built to honor the men and women who died in the Vietnam War. The story intertwines art, politics, historical memory, patriotism, racism, and a fascinating set of characters, from those who fought in the conflict and those who resisted it to politicians at the highest level. At its center are two enduring figures: Maya Lin, a young, Asian-American architecture student at Yale whose abstract design won the international competition but triggered a fierce backlash among powerful figures; and Frederick Hart, an innovative sculptor of humble origins on the cusp of stardom. James Reston, Jr., a veteran who lost a close friend in the war and has written incisively about the conflict's bitter aftermath, explores how the debate reignited passions around Vietnam long after the war's end and raised questions about how best to honor those who fought and sacrificed in an ill-advised war.

Strangers with memories : the United States and Canada from free trade to Baghdad
Stewart, John, 1960- author
Montreal ; McGill-Queen's University Press, [2017]
Canada in the American world -- Our continental economy : half built before the storm -- From erasing the border to the global war on terror -- Casualties -- Non-Americanism : be careful what you wish for -- Smaller in the world.

"Like estranged best friends, two democracies go from sharing their dreams to forgetting what they had in common--and wondering if they can still trust one another. In the early 1990s, North America was the vibrant centre of an increasingly democratic and revitalized western hemisphere. The United States and Canada were close allies working together to implement a bilateral free trade agreement and build an integrated manufacturing and export economy. By the late 2000s, the economic and diplomatic ties between the two countries were strained as policies stagnated or slipped backward and passports were needed to cross the border for the first time in history. In Strangers with Memories, John Stewart combines an insider's account, a mole's perspective, and a historian's consciousness to explain how two countries that spent the twentieth century building a world order together drifted so quickly apart in the early years of the twenty-first. Assessing the major forces and events in North America's development between 1990 and 2010, this book also details changes at the US embassy in Ottawa during those years and its relationship with US consulates in Canada and with the State Department's Canada desk. Arguing that Canada's influence among the world powers radically diminished as a result of historical events, Stewart gives valuable advice on how Canada should handle US relations and anticipates what lies ahead. From the viewpoint of a Canadian with a front-row seat to two decades of US-Canada relations, Strangers with Memories uncovers startling facts about one of the most extraordinary bilateral relationships in the world."--
