Book Summary:

"An in-depth study of Ivy style will be articulated this book, which will include essays by Patricia Mears, Dr. Peter McNeil, Dr. Christopher Breward, and Dr. Masafumi Monden. Dr. McNeil will analyze the style of the Duke of Windsor, arguably the most stylish man of the twentieth century, and the great impact his look had on Americans, especially as a young man in the 1920s. Dr. Breward will present a cross-cultural look at Ivy style as worn in the prestigious English universities of Oxford and Cambridge; he will also show how the look these young men cultivated would eventually be absorbed and re-interpreted in Hollywood films. Mr. Monden will write about the Ivy style craze that took hold in Japan from the mid-century to the present and its manifestation over the decades. Also included will be short excerpts by G. Bruce Boyer, a leading menswear writer and historian, and an interview with Richard Press by Christian Chensvold, founder of the Ivy Style blog. Mr. Boyer's 1985 publication, Elegance, contained chapters on madras, Harris Tweed, the camelhair polo coat, and other elements of Ivy style. The importance of this period publication is that it not only documents these fabrics and clothing items, but also captures the atmosphere of a time when Ivy style experienced a great resurgence in popularity. Mr. Chensvold is the founder and main contributor to the leading blog documenting menswear, particularly Ivy style. The main essay of the publication (by Patricia Mears) will present a historical overviewof the Ivy look in the twentieth century. Not only will the issues of the style's enduring popularity and its role as a cutting edge influence be discussed, so too will the cultural and aspirational aspects of its creation"--

Book Summary:

"Ivy Style celebrated one of the most enduring clothing styles of the 20th century. While viewed today as a classic form of dressing, in its heyday, Ivy style--or the Ivy League look--was actually so cutting-edge that it went on to inform the evolution of menswear for decades. This exhibition examined the genesis of Ivy style on the prestigious college campuses of the United States during the early years of the twentieth century, looked at the ways in which the style became codified by mid-century, and revealed how now, nearly one hundred years after its inception, Ivy style is still a thriving global influence"--Museum at FIT web site.

Book Summary:

"No Ivy League gracefully delivers a messy truth behind the essential process of questioning and reckoning." — Nate Powell, artist of the March trilogy When 17-year-old Hazel takes a summer job clearing ivy from the forest in Portland, Oregon, the only plan is to earn some extra cash to put toward concert tickets. Homeschooled, affluent, and sheltered, Hazel soon finds that working side by side with at-risk teens leaves no room for comforting illusions of equality and understanding. This uncomfortable and compelling memoir is an important story of a teen’s awakening to the racial insularity of the upper class, the power of white privilege, and the hidden history of segregation in Portland.

Book Summary:

Look closely at any typically "American" article of clothing these days, and you may be surprised to see a Japanese label inside. From high-end denim to oxford button-downs, Japanese designers have taken the classic American look-known as ametora, or "American traditional"-and turned it into a huge business for companies like Uniqlo, Kamakura Shirts, Evisu, and Kapital. This phenomenon is part of a long dialogue between Japanese and American fashion; in fact, many of the basic items and traditions of the modern American wardrobe are alive and well today thanks to the stewardship of Japanese consumers and fashion cognoscenti, who ritualized and preserved these American styles during periods when they were out of vogue in their native land. In Ametora, cultural historian W. David Marx traces the Japanese assimilation of American fashion over the past hundred and fifty years, showing how Japanese trendsetters and entrepreneurs mimicked, adapted, imported, and ultimately perfected American style, dramatically reshaping not only Japan's culture but also our own in the process.

Book Summary:

Ivy League schools on average reject some 90 percent of applicants. But there is another way to get into the top colleges in the United States—the back gate—that will still see motivated students come out the front gate with an Ivy League diploma. This book is the plan B that offers you an alternative set of keys to seven of the Ivy League universities: Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Pennsylvania (Penn), and Brown. Also covered are the so-called second tier of elite universities, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Duke, Northwestern, and University of Virginia, among others, which have highly selective admission requirements and confer social and economic benefits on par with the traditional Ivy Leagues. From extension schools to special programs for working students to online studies, the range of back gateways is remarkable for leveling the field for students of all stripes. This book provides the little-known strategies to help you succeed in enrolling in the school of your dreams.

Book Summary:

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is the governing body for some 400,000 college athletes in the United States. During football's bowl season and basketball's March Madness, the NCAA likes to remind its millions of TV viewers that it represents student athletes: most of its members compete as amateurs and will never go pro. Somehow, that message seems increasingly lost in a sea of multimillion-dollar TV deals, recruitment scandals, back-channel payouts, fan hysteria, player misbehavior both civil and criminal, and the routine bendingÑor floutingÑof college and NCAA rules about player academic eligibility. Far from this madding crowd, the nation's oldest, most prestigious private colleges and universities go about the business of making scholar-athletes from the ranks of their admitted classes, without special recruitment or scholarship money, and demanding and getting the best from them both on the field and in the classroom. Using a model that has changed very little since it was founded in 1954, the Ivy League offers a bracing corrective to the excesses of big-money college sports. In Ivy League Athletes, veteran sportswriter Sal Maiorana follows nine student-athletes from seven Ivy League campuses through the 2011Ð2012 season. Along the way he shows us the qualities of heart, mind, and body that got them there and allow them to prosper on the field and in the classroom. The book includes a foreword by former Harvard and current NFL quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Advance Praise for Ivy League Killers Cherry takes readers on a chilling ride as he plants intrigue in all the right places . . . If a rapist, murderer, or sex trafficker is hell-bent on a life of crime, is it injudicious to stop that person ? Young couple Emily and Tom don’t think so, and neither does the secret society that backs them in their pursuits. This anonymous network is composed of likeminded individuals who know that the police are insufficient in stopping these transgressors. Judges are paid off and criminals fall through the cracks. Some readers might squirm at the morality implied in such acts. But Cherry doesn’t declare a conclusive stance on the subject. He will, however, nudge your conscience to disturbing degrees where you might find yourself rooting for the eliminators. . . . [Ivy League] Killers answers many questions Harms [Done to Others] readers didn’t even know they had. Either story can be read first, however, thanks to Cherry’s literary dexterity. —Valerie Brooks is a writer, editor, and book reviewer and the owner of www.TheWriteEdit.com The novel can sometimes be playfully cynical, offsetting the characters’ lethal occupation . . . [AJfter a hit, Emily lovingly tells Tom, “Well done sweetheart. “ The tone, however, is generally earnest, and the back stories for the co-leads provide credible, sympathetic reasons for why they would commit murder. . . Cherry bolsters his tale with a bit of mystery . . . later chapters add suspense when the stakes escalate . . . Killers for hire make a surprisingly charming couple in this straightforward thriller. —Kirkus Reviews

Book Summary:

Adultery, stalking, manslaughter, and murder seem to have one thing in common as far as Desiree Stone has come to realize: a poison called jealousy. Seeking to leave a life of repetition and a past of pain behind, Desiree steps into a world of what at first seems to be a fairy tale come true: a whirlwind romance with Pierce Thomas Barrington Jr., a hot young English actor, as well as the sudden popularity and rocket sales of her first thriller. But before she can revel in her newfound happiness and success, Desiree realizes things aren't always as they seem. After a painful breakup with her fiancé, Colton, she begins to receive a series of harassing and threatening gifts that tend to arrive at random times no matter where she is, who she's with, or even where she hides. The deeper into Thomas's life Desiree digs, the more of his past is unearthed before her like an excavation gone horribly wrong. As the spotlight on their relationship in the media intensifies, the more threatened she becomes until she finds that everyone around her is a potential enemy, leaving her terrified of where to turn or what sort of gift will show up next. Are these so-called gifts from an overzealous fan of Thomas or from someone in her own past playing mind games that truly wants to get rid of her? What she didn't expect, what no one expected, was who her attacker was as the attacker took his last breath right before her very eyes.

Everybody knows that the schools of the Ivy League-universally touted as the pinnacle of American higher education-have graduated countless political leaders, corporate titans, and global power brokers.

Book Summary:

Mary Clearman Blew's education began at home, on a remote cattle ranch in Montana. She graduated to a one-room rural school, then escaped, via scholarship, to the University of Montana, where, still in her teens, she met and married her first husband. This Is Not the Ivy League is her account of what it was to be that girl, and then that woman--pressured by husband and parents to be the conventional wife of the 1950s, persisting in her pursuit of an education, trailed by a reluctant husband and small children through graduate school, and finally entering the job market with a PhD in English only to find a whole new set of pressures and prejudices. This memoir is Blew's behind-the-scenes account of pursuing a career at a time when a woman's place in the world was supposed to have limits. It is a story of both the narrowing perspective of the social norm and the ever-expanding possibilities of a woman who refuses to be told what she can and cannot be.

Book Summary:

We Know Exactly How You Feel... We've been in your shoes before, and we've succeeded. We all had our weaknesses - for some, it was a low GPA; others, lack of 'Club President' on their resume, not taking an AP or IB class; still others went to schools where they were literally the first ones ever accepted into an Ivy League-caliber school. Why are we doing this? Part of the motivation is seeing the helplessness and stress of our friends going through the process - from younger sisters to family friends to mentorship programs. We see you guys (and girls) asking the same questions and making the same mistakes. We feel like the path to admissions success can be SO OBVIOUS - but only once you've already been through it! We want to help - and after personally experiencing this ourselves, we know that Kaplan and Princeton Review can only go so far. We've decided to share our stories, in detail, so you can learn our exact strategies, insights, techniques, and even materials that we used. What do you have to do to get into your dream school? We can guide you every step of the way to your Ivy League entrance. Getting into the Ivies is not just about tricks to writing an application: you need to work right, think right and act right for years. Our e-book, The Best Book On Ivy League Admissions, will tell you how to make yourself the most attractive student out there. It's guaranteed to improve your chances to get into your dream school.

Book Summary:

An account of sordidness and redemption by the Dartmouth fraternity member whose Rolling Stone profile blew the whistle on the frat's inhumane hazing practices. Always trust the brotherhood. Always protect your pledge brothers. What happens in the house stays in the house. Before attending Dartmouth, the worst thing Andrew Lohse had ever done was skip school to attend a John McCain rally. Growing up in suburban New Jersey, he was the typical American honor student: straight-As, on the lacrosse team, president of the Model U.N. He dreamed of following in his grandfather's footsteps and graduating from the Ivy League. When he arrived at Dartmouth, however, he found not the prestigious college of years past, but a wasteland of privilege and moral entropy. And when he rushed Sigma Alpha Epsilon, the fraternity that inspired the rival house in Animal House, Lohse's once-perfect life, as well as his goals, began to crumble around him. Lured by free booze and friendly brothers, Andrew pledged Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and soon his life became a dangerous cycle of binge drinking and public humiliation. From chugging vinegar to swimming in a pool of human waste, Lohse's pledge class endured cruelty and psychological coercion in the hopes of obtaining a bid. Although Andrew succeeded in joining the fraternity, the pattern of abuse continued—except over time, he became the abuser. Told by a contemporary Holden Caulfield, this is a shocking exposé of America's most exclusive institutions and a cautionary tale for modern times.
