In Hoffa's Shadow: A Stepfather, a Disappearance in Detroit, and My Search for the Truth
"The Irishman is great art . . . but it is not, as we know, great history . . . Frank Sheeran . . . surely didn’t kill Hoffa . . . But who pulled the trigger? . . . For some of the real story, and for a great American tale in itself, you want to go to Jack Goldsmith’s book, In Hoffa’s Shadow.” ―Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal
"In Hoffa’s Shadow is compulsively readable, deeply affecting, and truly groundbreaking in its re-examination of the Hoffa case . . . a monumental achievement." ―James Rosen, The Wall Street Journal
As a young man, Jack Goldsmith revered his stepfather, longtime Jimmy Hoffa associate Chuckie O’Brien. But as he grew older and pursued a career in law and government, he came to doubt and distance himself from the man long suspected by the FBI of perpetrating Hoffa’s disappearance on behalf of the mob. It was only years later, when Goldsmith was serving as assistant attorney general in the George W. Bush administration and questioning its misuse of surveillance and other powers, that he began to reconsider his stepfather, and to understand Hoffa’s true legacy.
In Hoffa’s Shadow tells the moving story of how Goldsmith reunited with the stepfather he’d disowned and then set out to unravel one of the twentieth century’s most persistent mysteries and Chuckie’s role in it. Along the way, Goldsmith explores Hoffa’s rise and fall and why the golden age of blue-collar America came to an end, while also casting new light on the century-old surveillance state, the architects of Hoffa’s disappearance, and the heartrending complexities of love and loyalty.

Charlie Chaplin made an amazing seventy-one films by the time he was only thirty-three years old. He was known not only as the world’s first international movie star, but as a comedian, a film director, and a man ripe with scandal, accused of plagiarism, communism, pacifism, liberalism, and anti-Americanism. He seduced young women, marrying four different times, each time to a woman younger than the last. In this animated biography of Chaplin, Joyce Milton reveals to us a life riddled with gossip and a struggle to rise from an impoverished London childhood to the life of a successful American film star. Milton shows us how the creation of his famous character—the Tramp, the Little Fellow—was both rewarding and then devastating as he became obsolete with the changes of time. Tramp is a perceptive, clever, and captivating biography of a talented and complicated man whose life was filled with scandal, politics, and art.

Aluk is a young Kurdish woman who gets adopted by a childless European academic couple, after a common climb to the summit of the biblical mountain Ararat. She follows her new parents to Crecheville, where she starts Law studies. She is intrigued by the idea that humans’ destiny is to permanently desire more: that is a blessing and curse at the same time. She starts her career joining the ICRC (Inter. Committee of the Red Cross), serving in Iraq, Eastern Sudan, and Jerusalem. Three years later Aluk metamorphoses into a Diplomat for her adoptive country working in Israel, Morocco, Nigeria, Russia, Caucasus, Iran, Uzbekistan/Tajikistan, a peace mission to Afghanistan introduces her to a cosmos following its own rules.Negotiating with the Taliban and their nemesis, Ahmad Shah Massoud, gives her a lasting lesson: “ if you can, trust in God, if not, trust nobody.” Her defence ministry calls her to help out in coordinating its intelligence services, but soon her ministry needs Aluk in Kenya, where she discovers a powerful motivator “greed without borders”. Aluk continues her career in Israel again and then as Ambassador to Sudan/Eritrea, Vietnam and Poland. Once in retirement Aluk tries to give something back to her Kurdish roots. She happens to know a key aid to Boris Johnson, Ambassador Tim Barrow, so she gets an appointment with the PM. She is not trying to get another (this time Kurd oriented) “Balfour declaration” from London: hence she is not aiming at a Kurdish State but more realistically for promis- ing cooperation domains within a Union of Levante. This Union could first, like it happened not so long ago in Europe, start with creating conditions, for the regional countries to cooperate with each other. Exploring political and cultural diversities in many of the worlds most challenged nations, she delivers services with respect and empathy for all humans and other beings giving us on her way a glance into chronic problems of most societies.

The Nag Hammadi Scriptures, edited by Marvin Meyer, is the most complete, up-to-date, one-volume, English-language edition of the renowned library of Gnostic manuscripts discovered in Egypt in 1945, which rivaled the Dead Sea Scrolls find in significance. It includes the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Mary, and the recently discovered Gospel of Judas, as well as other Gnostic gospels and sacred texts. This volume also includes introductory essays, notes, tables, glossary, index, etc. to help the reader understand the context and contemporary significance of these texts which have shed new light on early Christianity and ancient thought. The compilation of ancient manuscripts that constitute The Nag Hammadi Scriptures is a discovery that challenges everything we thought we knew about the early Christian church, ancient Judaism, and Greco-Roman religions.
