Download Some Faces in the Crowd PDF by Budd Schulberg Full Free and published by Open Road Media. This book was released on 2012-07-31 with total page 310 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Twenty gritty stories by the Academy Award–winning writer of On the Waterfront and A Face in the Crowd. Despite growing up among Hollywood’s most powerful producers and movie stars in the 1920s and ’30s, Budd Schulberg was always a populist at heart. In this collection of his best short fiction, Schulberg takes readers from the halls of privilege in Los Angeles to smoky dives and dockyard slums in New York. His eye for detail and nose for trouble render characters as vividly as a Weegee photograph. These stories also represent the great clash of people and ideas in mid-century America. The collection includes “The Arkansas Traveler,” the story Schulberg adapted into the influential, prescient film A Face in the Crowd starring Andy Griffith. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Budd Schulberg including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

Book excerpt: These evocative short stories put together in historical order, present a vivid mosaic of the dramatic, comic, lyrical, and tragic. Spanning 100 years, the tales are wonderfully diverse - a young girl is forced to marry a feudal lord much older than her, a village dandy falls in love with a beautiful woman in a foreign land, the treacherous role played by the people of Tehran when the democratically elected government of Dr Mosaddegh was overthrown by the help of the CIA, young boys in a remote village are asked to take part in horrific, absurd and comical religious ceremonies and festivals, a little boy who becomes intensely preoccupied with the secret lives of marionettes, a deeply religious adolescent who fails to have sex with a prostitute, a woman who is banned from singing under Sharia Law, a pigeon-fancier who falls in love with a young woman whose fanatic family cause a lot of problems for him - but together these tales create a sense of separate destinies entwined across time and space.

Download The Myth of the Madding Crowd PDF by Clark McPhail Full Free and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-09-29 with total page 265 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Crowd behavior is one of the most colorful but least understood forms of human social behavior. This volume is a major contribution to the field of collective behavior, with implications for social movement analysis.McPhail's critical assessment of the major theories of crowd behavior establishes that, whatever their particular limitations and strengths, all share a general and serious flaw: their explanations were developed without prior examination of the behaviors to be explained. Drawing on a wide range of empirical studies that include his own careful field work, the author offers a new characterization of temporary gatherings. He presents a life cycle of gatherings and a taxonomy of forms of collective behavior within gatherings, as well as combinations of these forms and gatherings into larger events, campaigns and waves. McPhail also develops a new explanation for various ways in which purposive actors construct collective actions.
Download Another One PDF by Tony Faggioli Full Free and published by . This book was released on 2017-09-18 with total page 231 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Detective Evan Parker is being haunted by the past. After two tours in the Afghanistan War as an Army Ranger, he thought the horrors that he witnessed there were behind him. But the brutal death of his partner has now opened a dark hole of memories that are threatening to swallow Parker alive. Desperate to maintain his grip, he turns his attention to the last unsolved case that his partner left behind: the murder of Hymie Villarosa. Father Bernardino Soltera is being destroyed by the present. After ministering to the gang ridden streets of East L.A. for over twenty years, he’s lost his way. Beaten down by the havoc that drugs and violence have wreaked on the neighborhood around him, he can’t see past the pain and suffering anymore. But when a young congregant comes to him to confess that she’s pregnant and that her boyfriend has threatened her if she doesn’t get an abortion? Father Soltera decides to make one more stand. Hector Villarosa is being mocked by the future. After being released from jail he finds out that the love of his life has taken up with another man. As the leader of his gang, losing face could mean losing his life, and the fact that detectives are now asking questions about the death of Hector’s cousin Hymie isn’t helping. But that’s not the worst of it. Hector’s biggest problem is the demon that has followed him out of jail and on to the mean streets of East L.A. Three men in a neighborhood that could kill them on any given day are about to discover that good dwells in the darkest of places, those that die don’t always leave, and the veil between this world and the next is razor thin.
