John Wayne went against the tide of public opinion to both direct and star in a war epic that seeks to justify America's involvement in Vietnam. A commander (Wayne) is sent onto the battlefield to lead a regiment on a mission to kidnap a Vietcong general. As events unfold, a pacifist journalist (David Janssen) covering the sorti is gradually persuaded to accept the justness of the war.
Made-for-TV drama documenting the doomed liner's maiden voyage in 1912. Viewed from the perspective of three groups of passengers in First, Second, and Third Class, and highlighting the role that class distinction played in events, the film charts the fortunes of millionaire John Jacob Astor (David Janssen), romantic schoolteachers Lawrence Beesley and Leigh Goodwin (David Warner and Susan St James), and a group of Irish immigrants bound for a new life in America.
From its indefinite beginnings through its broad commercialization and endless reinterpretation, American rock-and-roll music has been preoccupied with an end-of-the-world mentality that extends through the whole of American popular music. In Apocalypse Jukebox, Edward Whitelock and David Janssen trace these connections through American music genres, uncovering a mix of paranoia and hope that characterizes so much of the nation's history. From the book's opening scene, set in the American South during a terrifying 1833 meteor shower, the sense of doom is both palpable and inescapable; a deep foreboding that shadows every subsequent development in American popular music and, as Whitelock and Janssen contend, stands as a key to understanding and explicating America itself. Whitelock and Janssen examine the diversity of apocalyptic influences within North American recorded music, focusing in particular upon a number of influential performers, including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, John Coltrane, Devo, R.E.M., Sleater-Kinney, and Green Day. In Apocalypse Jukebox, Whitelock and Janssen reveal apocalypse as a permanent and central part of the American character while establishing rock-and-roll as a true reflection of that character.
Praised as a major political thinker of the 20th century and villified as the putative godfather of contemporary neoconservatism, Leo Strauss (1899-1973) has been the object of heated controversy in the US and elsewhere. This book offers a more balanced appraisal by focusing on his early writings.
