About this Item: McClelland and Stewart Limited, Toronto. Hard Cover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition 1st Printing. BOOK: Corners, Spine, Boards Bumped; Moderate Shelf Rub to Boards; Edges Lightly Soiled; Slight Yellowing Due to Age. DUST JACKET: Missing. Only one book, only one family could follow The Canadian Establishment - A story that has never been told. SUB-TITLE: The Rothschilds of the New World. CONTENTS: Author's Note; Part I - Mr. Sam; Chapter 1 - The Rothschilds of the New World; Chapter 2 - Mr. Sam; Chapter 3 - Running for the Red Chamber; Chapter 4 - Hidden Roots; Chapter 5 - Getting into Booze; Chapter 6 - Murder at Beanfate; Chapter 7 - At the Bar of Justice; Capter 8 - Oh! To Be a Bronfman; Chapter 9 - The Death of a Titan; Part II - The Inheritors; Chapter 10 - Growing Up in the Belvedere Palace; Chapter 11 - Phyllis; Chapter 12 - Minda; Chapter 13 - Edgar; Chapter 14 - Leo; Chapter 15 - Gerald; Chapter 16 - Mitch; Chapter 17 - Peter; Chapter 18 - Charles; Epilogue; Appendices; Index. SYNOPSIS: THE DYNASTY "Except that they are almost certainly richer and without a doubt more secretive, the Bronfmans have become the Rothschilds of the New World. But unlike the European banking family, which has concentrated its wealth in metals, the Bronfman dynasty holds a commanding position in the two liquids that fuel the modern world: whisky and oil." Edgar and Sam, discussing their attempted takeover of MGM: "Tell me, Edgar, are we buying all this stock in MGM just so you can get laid?" "Oh, no, Pop. It doesn't cost $40 million to get laid." Minda (The Baroness Alain de Gunzburg), when Sam wanted to kiss the bride at her wedding: "But Father, don't you know that you should bow to a baroness?" Charles: His sweet-brown eyes reflect that quality of living at a distance from the centre of things sometimes possessed by blind folk singers, gaitered Anglican bishops, and pet reindeer. Phyllis: An intensely attractive divorcee with features that evoke the lingering beauty of a Picasso line drawing, she is seldom seen in anything except a track-layer's coveralls over a man's shirt with three large plastic peanuts pinned to the bib. Mr. Sam: His nephew, Gerald, once cautioned Mr. Sam to watch his temper or he'd get ulcers. "Listen," was the reply, "I don't get ulcers. I give them." Mitch: His office feels like the Hollywood reconstruction of 007's wintering quarters. It has nine telephones (equipped with switches, hot lines, hidden consoles) and a scattering of gadgets that include a flashlight that shoots Mace and a golden fountain pen that shoots bullets. - and - Only one book - only one family - could possibly succeed The Canadian Establishment . . . and three years after the publication of that sensational and controversial volume, Peter C. Newman returns with Bronfman Dynasty, the intimate story of the greatest, most powerful empire of them all. Even though its various branches control assets worth an estimated $7 billion, the Bronfman clan is constantly in flux and flight - a feuding clutch of hot-headed dreamers with wounded eyes and hyper egos. We meet Sam Bronfman, who, along with his brothers, laid the Seagram empire's financial foundations by supplying booze to the bootleggers who crossed the Canadian-U.S. border during some of the Prohibition era's most violent encounters. Later he sought respectability by attempting to buy a seat in the Canadian senate. Today's generation is less rambunctious but no less interesting. There's Charles, the current power behind the throne, who owns a baseball team and lives in a $2-million house that has a swimming pool with a retracting roof; Edgar, the New York jet-setter, who runs the empire from a Park Avenue office that has a Rodin nude statue of Balzac in it; Peter, the shyest billionaire in the country, who owns Montreal's huge Place Ville Marie and much of downtown Calgary; Mitch, who lives a James bond existence, hiding in his desk a special flashlight that shoots a stream of Mace at unwanted visitors. Then there is Phyllis, who lives in a restored factory on Montreal's. Size: 8vo - over 7¾". Seller Inventory # 002315

About this Item: Pinnacle Books, 2006. Paperback. Condition: good. Synopsis:-In her work for the Ventura County Probation Department, Carolyn Sullivan interviews the most dangerous, depraved criminals - and Raphael Moreno is at the top of the list. The hardened street thug has been convicted in a series of gruesome and baffling murders, including the decapitation of his own mother. For the first time, Carolyn is face-to-face with a criminal who truly frightens her. But things are about to get much hotter - and much deadlier for Carolyn. A phone call from her brother, Neil, propels her into a nightmare. A popular bachelor and successful artist, Neil has discovered the body of his girlfriend, Laurel, floating in his swimming pool. When her death is ruled a homicide, Neil becomes the prime suspect. But he has an alibi - he was in bed with Melody Asher, a seductive party girl and heiress. Their torrid affair is as steamy as it is addictive, a twisted game of manipulation and sexual blackmail. When Melody refuses to back up Neil`s story, the sensitive brother Carolyn thought she knew suddenly seems like a complete stranger. And then the most shattering news surfaces: Blood found in Neil`s expensive new car links him to Raphael Moreno and his unthinkable crimes. As the evidence against Neil mounts, Carolyn is forced to ask herself troubling questions. Is he an innocent victim, or could he be hiding a darker side, a sinister streak that connects him to the brutal murders of nine people? Could the brother she loves actually be a cold-hearted, ruthless killer? The key to everything seems to be Moreno, but getting inside his head is a treacherous game. As the danger grows and shocking secrets are revealed, a shaken Carolyn must find the courage to make the ultimate decision - whether to risk the lives of innocent people or save herself and those she loves most. --> Genre: Thriller Conspiracy -> this Paperback book the publishing house is Pinnacle Books in 2006 it has 384 pages booksalvation have grade it as good and Has A Few Scuffs Marks Etc Reasonable used book it will be shipped from our UK warehouse shipping is Free for UK buyers and at a reasonable charge for buyer outside the UK. book.

About this Item: VP including Ladysmith, Geluk Farm, Vluchfontein et al., 1901. Nine ALS, three TLS, eight carbons. 64 pp in total. Folio & 4to. FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT OF THE SIEGE OF LADYSMITH. A fine group of letters by an English intelligence officer steadily rising through the ranks. In 1899 he is "sleep[ing] in the open air, only one blanket & one waterproof sheet." Within a year he was Lord Roberts' private clerk and in December 1900 he is stationed at the Commander-in-Chief's Office (Kitchener's) doing "confidential military work for the Military Secretary to Lord Kitchener." Although part of the intelligence service, Carter saw more than his share of fighting. He describes the march to Ladysmith, and the action at Elands Laagte Station, noting "a bullet going through the top of my helmet and cutting off some of my hair but without even scratching the skin."The next four letters were written from Ladysmith and provide a full account of the siege. "The Boers had big siege guns mounted on the hills around Ladysmith which quite outclassed our light field guns . [They'd] completely invested Ladysmith & cut the telegraph lines & pulled up the Railway . Then began the long dreary siege." Carter reports using "a lot of pigeons" and the cost of Kaffir and Zulu runners, to get letters out of Ladysmith and at least one of his letters (not here) was published in the Hamilton Spectator.The siege is depicted much like a holiday camp, citing football matches, swimming races, water polo, cricket. "We got so indifferent to the Boer 'snipers' that you would see most of our chaps having an afternoon siesta behind their trenches while bullets would be chipping the stones around them. We also used to organise pools, when we could see some of the Boers, and have a long range shooting match, the man who bowled the first Boer over taking the pool." Yet there is also much on troops movements, information on the Boers, the conditions of Ladysmith, accounts of engaging the enemy, and reflections on the experience of combat: "the actual fighting is all right as the excitement deadens your faculties, but after a battle when . you see your poor companions who a few hours before were joking with you, lying dead or else writhing in the agonies of pain caused by frightful wounds, then you feel your courage leaving you and your nerves getting like wax." The remaining correspondence includes three letters as Carter's regiment treks across the Transvaal through August and September 1900. These too are full of detail of life in the field, bivouacking scouting enemy positions and action: "There was a grand opportunity for our Field Artillery. They simply pumped shrapnel into them, the Artillery Officers going mad at the sight, and shrieking to the gunners 'fire! fire! hurry up you b----- fools, you never had such a chance, fire!' . You could see at every discharge of the guns, the Boers falling, and at the same time our splendid Infantry running for all they were worth trying to get at them with the bayonet . [I]t is very seldom the Boers leave any wounded or dead behind them and it proves how hard we pressed them . It was like a shambles . one, two or more bodies, horribly mutilated by the effects of the Lyddite."The final group commences with Carter being stationed at the Commander-in-Chief's office and he wastes no opportunity to use the special mail service for his own correspondence. He describes Kitchener at work and provides insight to life in the office. Yet beneath this is a yearning for the war to end and a frustration that it can't be done in one swift battle: "We cannot get a good fight out of the beggars they simply have a few shots at us and as soon as we get near enough to do some damage, off they go helter-skelter." This group were all addressed to Carter's long time friend we know only by the name of Jose. Given the warmth and detail included here, it's possible that he was using these letters as a substitute for a diary. Carter served with some distinction in 1st Manchester Regiment and was mentioned in the despatches. V. Seller Inventory # 303348
