Genre: Biography & Autobiography

This is a pioneering, comprehensive bibliography of existing publications relating to American Jews with ancestry in the former Czechoslovakia and its successor states, the Czech and the Slovak Republics, which has never before been attempted. Since only a few studies have been written on the subject, the present work has been extended to include biobibliography, in which area a plethora of papers and monographs exist. Consequently, this compendium can also be viewed as a comprehensive listing of biographical sources relating to American Jews with the Czechoslovak roots. As the reader will find out, they have been involved, practically, in every field of human endeavor, in numbers that surprise. As for the definition of Jews, the present work encompasses not only the individuals that have professed in Judaism but also the descendants of the former Jews who originally lived on the territory of the former Czechoslovakia, regardless of the generation or where they were born.

Marilyn Manson

Author: Doug Small
Publisher: Omnibus Press& Schirmer Trade Books
ISBN: 082567347X
Release Date: 2007
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Marilyn Manson emerged from the swamplands of Southern Florida to take the Nineties music scene by the throat, garnering chart success and critical acclaim while simultaneously whipping the moral majority into such a frenzy they were late to church. Fast-forward to 2007 and Manson hasnât loosened his grip, with his latest in an impressive string of hit albums, Eat Me, Drink Me, set to sustain his stranglehold. Ever since Antichrist Superstar hit the unsuspecting U.S. charts with a Number Three debut back in 1996, Manson has been waging a full-on war against conservative groups whose hysterical cries of outrage against the rock star theyâve mistaken for Satan have ensured that barely a date on world tour after world tour has gone by without protest, controversy, or cancellation. When the finger was pointed at him in the wake of the Columbine shootings, he chose to use his prominence as Public Enemy Number One to advocate freedom of expression and the importance of art and individualism. The uproar persists, but Manson has proven himself to be a provocateur who can be relied upon to create ever-evolving and enduring art. Here are all of the down and dirty details of the band whose goal is to be the musical equivalent of shouting âFire!â in a crowded theatre. From Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kidsâ formation in 1989 and their early gigs, through the progression of the bandâs sound and lineup to Mansonâs present-day incarnation as artist, actor, writer, director, and musician, this book is a must-read for anyone inspired by the inimitable Marilyn Manson.
