The result is a wildly inventive fantasy and a meditation on the many uses of the mind. Science fiction, detective story and post modern manifesto all rolled into one rip-roaring novel, "Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" is the tour de force that expanced Haruki Murakami' s international following, tracking one man' s descent into the kafkaesque underworld farce, compassion and detachment, slang and philosophy. This is a narrative particle accelerator that zooms between Wild Turkey Whiskey and Bob Dylan, unicorn skulls and voracious librarians, John Coltrane and Lord Jim.

Благодаря своей репутации, как продюсера "Blood, Swea a d ears " и "Bucki ghams" Гурсио подписал "Chicago" на "Columbia records" в январе 1969 года. В этом же году вышел первый альбом группы, на котором чувствовалось влияние джаза. Хотя он ни разу не попал в Топ 10, тем не менее, оставался в американских чартах в течение 171 недели. Также пользовались популярностью синглы "Does A ybody Really K ow Wha ime I Is?" и "Begi i gs". В 1970 группа сократила свое название до "Chicago". Все еще работая в стиле джаз-рок, они выпустили "Chicago II". В дальнейшем, за редкими исключениями каждый из альбомов группы получал свой порядковый номер. Обложка каждого диска представляла собой различную интересную обработку эмблемы группы, и многие из них поимели награды за свой дизайн. В начале 70-х "Чикаго" начали отходить от своего джазового саунда к мэйнстриму, в результате чего получались такие знаменитые вещи, как "Colour My World", трансатлантический хит 1976 года "If You Leave Me ow" и № 1 в 1982 году "Hard o Say I'm Sorry".
|The End. The Defiance and Destruction of Hitler's Germany, 1944-1945 Daedalus Books Kershaw I. |
Hitler, desperate to avoid a repeat of the "disgraceful" German surrender in 1918, was of course critical to the Third Reich' s fanatical determination, but his power was sustained only because those below him were unable, or unwilling, to challenge it. Even as the military situation grew increasingly hopeless, Wehrmacht generals fought on, their orders largely obeyed, and the regime continued its ruthless persecution of Jews, prisoners, and foreign workers. Beneath the hail of allied bombing, German society maintained some semblance of normalcy in the very last months of the war. The Berlin Philharmonic even performed on April 12, 1945, less than three weeks before Hitler' s suicide. As Kershaw shows, the structure of Hitler' s "charismatic rule" created a powerful negative bond between him and the Nazi leadership- they had no future without him, and so their fates were inextricably tied. Terror also helped the Third Reich maintain its grip on power as the regime began to wage war not only on its ideologically defined enemies but also on the German people themselves. Yet even as each month brought fresh horrors for civilians, popular support for the regime remained linked to a patriotic support of Germany and a terrible fear of the enemy closing in. Based on prodigious new research, Kershaw' s "The End" is a harrowing yet enthralling portrait of the Third Reich in its last desperate gasps.
