The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.

Alfred Stieglitz was one of the most important cultural forces in twentieth-century America. He described himself in 1921 as "an American. Photography is my passion. The search for truth my obsession." As a photographer, editor, and gallery director, Stieglitz was a powerful--often domineering--influence on photography and art. As founder of the PhotoSecession movement and editor of the influential "Camera Work," he eschewed the prevailing "artiness" of pictorialist photography, preferring a clarity of vision, a "crystallized awareness." In galleries such as "291" and An American Place which h... View more info

In 1771, at the age of 65, Benjamin Franklin sat down to write his autobiography, "having emerged from the poverty and obscurity in which I was born and bred to a state of affluence and some degree of reputation in the world, and having gone so far through life with a considerable share of felicity." The result is a classic of American literature. On the eve of the tercentenary of Franklin's birth, the university he founded has selected the "Autobiography for the Penn Reading Project.

It Can't Happen Here (Signet Classics)

By: Lewis, Sinclair

Price: $9.99

Publisher: Signet Classics:

Seller ID: 9780451465641

ISBN: 0451465644

Condition: NEW


"It Can't Happen Here" is the only one of Sinclair Lewis's later novels to match the power of "Main Street, ""Babbitt," and "Arrowsmith." A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, it is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler's aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press. Called "a message to thinking Americans" by ... View more info
