《美国总统》为读者呈现的第一� 照片，是1858年林肯竞选和对手道� �拉斯进行辩论的场景。1933年3月12日，罗斯福发表“炉边谈话”，开始针对当时的经济危机实施“新政”；1941年12月7日，日军偷袭珍� 港，罗斯福于次日下午签署了对日宣战的文件。当星条旗在英军炮轰后的要塞上高高飘扬时，谁也不会想到，一个起初由13个殖民地建立起的美利坚合众国，会成为日后影响世界的超级大国。作为这个国家最有权威的人物一美国总统，从“美国之父”华盛顿到解放黑人奴隶的林肯，从二战中对法西斯宣战的罗斯福到支持冷战的肯尼迪，从实行“乒乓外交”的尼克松到怀有“� 畏的梦想”的黑人奥巴马，在过去的200多年里，作为白宫的主人，他们以自己的方式主导和演绎着美国的历史。这里面，既有追求自由的坚韧，宣扬个性的率真，也有攫取利益的贪婪，称霸世界的野心……当我们合上此书的最后一页，回味思量之余，会忽然发现，呈现在我们面前的这些美国总统的画面，这些个性鲜明的“风云人物”，并不是一个个没有关联的个体，而是一部活生生的美国历史！

”Writing this book with Jonathan Reiner has been a great experience…I thought I knew a lot about coronary artery disease when we began this project because I had lived with it for thirty-five years, but now I feel as though I have been through a yearlong advanced seminar on the history of medical cardiology.”This is a very odd book, about the medical issues that faced former Secretary of Defense and Vice President Dick Cheney while he was in office, as well as before and after. I note that most of the reviews I have seen are from folks in the medical field. Co-author Dr. Jonathan Reiner is praised for his clarity, etc. in describing atheroschlerosis. Cheney glances on what exactly he did in office, but being the private person he still is, he doesn’t really talk about anything of importance in any depth. Im sure he doesnt feel the need to explain, justify, or defend anything and that his actions and decisions stand on their own to be judged by history.Cheney was elected to the House of Representatives in 1978, serving from 1979 to 1989 when he became George H.W. Bush’s choice for Secretary of Defense. He oversaw the first Gulf War, Operation Desert Storm, and resisted budget cuts that would “do long-term damage to our military capabilities. We shifted from focusing on having to fight an all-out global war with the Soviets to a strategy of being able to defend the regions of the world where vital U.S. interests were at stake.” That’s it. There are two more paragraphs. That’s how he describes his role as Secretary of Defense. That was his favorite job of his career.When he was asked by George W. Bush to be his running mate, he at first refused. He didn’t think he would like it. That was, if you recall, the contested election with hanging chads, etc. Cheney writes,“Although there had been no official outcome to the election, I knew we needed to begin the transition. Under normal circumstances, a president-elect has the time from the election in early November until the January 20 inauguration to find and recruit a cabinet, fill thousands of jobs and put together a legislative program…In the situation we faced in 2000, it would be virtually impossible to run an effective transition if we waited for the final resolution of the Florida recount.” Cheney had a heart incident on November 22, 2000. ”When I took the oath of office as vice president of the United States on January 20, 2001, I had been living with coronary artery disease for twenty-two years. I had survived four heart attacks, the last occurring just months before, and quadruple bypass surgery.” ”When Governor Bush asked me to be his running mate, he made it clear that it would be a consequential post. I would be a full member of his team and help govern the nation…He also asked me to take on the task of conducting a review of a number of studies that dealt with the problem of “homeland security.” My national security background had been an important reason for his selecting me, and with his approval, I embarked on a series of visits to the Central Intelligence Agency, The National Security Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and other parts of the intelligence community. I’d a special interest in intelligence matters since my days on the House Intelligence Committee and as secretary of defense, but after eight years in the private sector, I needed to catch up.” We know how that turned out.In July of 2010, Cheney had a heart transplant. He feels better now.

In the center of Mumbai, next to the city’s newest and most expensive commercial developments, lies one of Asia’s largest slums, where as many as one million squatters live in makeshift housing on one square mile of government land. This is the notorious Dharavi district, best known from the movie Slumdog Millionaire. In recent years, cities from Delhi to Rio de Janeiro have demolished similar slums, at times violently evicting their residents, to make way for development. But Dharavi and its residents have endured for a century, holding on to what is now some of Mumbai’s most valuable land.In The Durable Slum, Liza Weinstein draws on a decade of work, including more than a year of firsthand research in Dharavi, to explain how, despite innumerable threats, the slum has persisted for so long, achieving a precarious stability. She describes how economic globalization and rapid urban development are pressuring Indian authorities to eradicate and redevelop Dharavi—and how political conflict, bureaucratic fragmentation, and community resistance have kept the bulldozers at bay. Today the latest ambitious plan for Dharavi’s transformation has been stalled, yet the threat of eviction remains, and most residents and observers are simply waiting for the project to be revived or replaced by an even grander scheme.Dharavi’s remarkable story presents important lessons for a world in which most population growth happens in urban slums even as brutal removals increase. From Nairobi’s Kibera to Manila’s Tondo, megaslums may be more durable than they appear, their residents retaining a fragile but hard-won right to stay put.
