We read biography to better understand ourselves much as we read history to better understand our times. Four engaging new books admirably aid us with both those tasks. Editor and publisher Henry Luce — presided over the golden age of general-interest magazines.
The notion of an American Century has fallen out of favor in recent years—historians prefer to focus on the United States as part of a transatlantic community. The contributors to this volume edited by R. Laurence Moore and Maurizio Vaudagna seek to understand how the exercise of American power was in crucial ways shaped and limited by the historic ties of the United States to Europe. They evaluate the impact of the "American Century" as publisher Henry R. Luce named it in from Woodrow Wilson's dream of a new world order, to Cold War economic policies, to more recent American cultural imperialism and its immediate descendent, American-led globalization.
The American Century in Europe

Oskaloosa is a mining town. Harold Ross, whose father was a miner, was born in Aspen. When Luce and Ross were starting out, their magazines occupied adjoining floors in a building at 25 West Forty-fifth Street, a thousand miles away from anywhere in Iowa. After the first issue of The New Yorker came out, Time printed a squib inside an issue whose cover was a photograph of the fifty-one-year-old poet Amy Lowell, bespectacled and grandmotherly, her gray hair pinned up in a bun, sitting in an antique chair, reading.
Henry Robinson Luce April 3, — February 28, was an American magazine magnate who was called "the most influential private citizen in the America of his day". Time summarized and interpreted the week's news; Life was a picture magazine of politics, culture, and society that dominated American visual perceptions in the era before television; Fortune reported on national and international business; and Sports Illustrated explored the world of sports. Counting his radio projects and newsreels , Luce created the first multimedia corporation.
James L. When Henry R. Luce died in , he was the most influential publisher in the United States. That fury distorted some of the earliest attempts to come to terms with Luce after his death. In The Publisher, Alan Brinkley offers a decidedly measured approach. The first author to have access to Luce's personal and family correspondence, Brinkley presents a much fuller portrait than any previous biographer. The son of American missionaries in China, Luce entered magazine publishing largely at the urging of Briton Hadden, a Yale University classmate

Зрение его несколько прояснилось, и ему удалось разобрать буквы. Как он и подозревал, надпись была сделана не по-английски. Беккер долго вглядывался в текст и хмурил брови. И ради этого стоило убивать. Когда Беккер наконец вышел из Гиральды в Апельсиновый сад, утреннее солнце уже нещадно пекло.
Моя просьба покажется вам безумной, - сказала она, заморгав красными глазами, - но не могли бы вы одолжить мне немного денег.
