Drawing on his unprecedented access to Grace Kelly, bestselling biographer Donald Spoto at last offers an intimate, honest, and authoritative portrait of one of Hollywood's legendary actresses. In just seven years–from 1950 through 1956–Grace Kelly embarked on a whirlwind career that included roles in eleven movies. From the principled Amy Fowler Kane in High Noon to the thrill-seeking Frances Stevens of To Catch a Thief, Grace established herself as one of Hollywood's most talented actresses and iconic beauties. Her astonishing career lasted until her retirement at age twenty-six, when she withdrew from stage and screen to marry a European monarch and became a modern, working princess and mother. Based on never-before-published or quoted interviews with Grace and those conducted over many years with her friends and colleagues–from costars James Stewart and Cary Grant to director Alfred Hitchcock–as well as many documents disclosed by her children for the first time, acclaimed biographer Donald Spoto explores the transformation of a convent schoolgirl to New York model, successful television actress, Oscar-winning movie star, and beloved royal. As the princess requested, Spoto waited twenty-five years after her death to write this biography. Now, with honesty and insight, High Society reveals the truth of Grace Kelly's personal life, the men she loved, the men she didn't, and what lay behind the façade of her fairy-tale life. From the Hardcover edition.

Paperback: People like shiny things. Few things are shinier than cars: paint, trim and chrome. And people like soft things, like pillow-top beds, sofas and recliners. Cars interiors followed this home trend. Yet, people wanted to make more of a statement as it related to their cars and they got it in generous doses of style via the Couture Car. Ask anyone what automotive brand is associated with designer cars and the reply is likely to be Lincoln. To say that Lincoln dominated the field of Couture Cars would be an understatement. From 1976 through 2003, Lincoln had one or more designer series models. But it wasn't Lincoln that started the rage. They just executed on the theme better. This book is a compilation of the automakers' media kits and brochures on the Couture Car. Included in quotes are the materials' descriptions of the packages and trim specifications which entice shoppers with glowing terms and promises of superb driving, touring and living.

Beautifully illustrated with rarely seen material, this striking, rigorously researched book puts its controversial subject into the widest possible context. It paints vivid portraits of the roles that drugs play as medicines, sacraments, status symbols and trade goods from classical times through the mind-bending self-experiments of early scientists to the present 'war on drugs', and reveals how the international trade in substances such as tobacco, tea and opium shaped the modern world. "... deserves high praise for rendering a complex, controversial topic with clarity and elegance. It's also good looking ... quite marvellous" - British Medical Journal

During the quarter century between 1780 and 1806, Berlin's courtly and intellectual elites gathered in the homes of a few wealthy, cultivated Jewish women to discuss the events of the day. Princes, nobles, upwardly mobile writers, actors, and beautiful Jewish women flocked to the salons of Rahel Varnhagen, Henriette Herz, and Dorothea von Courland, creating both a new cultural institution and an example of social mixing unprecedented in the German past.

This is a popular account of the use of legitimate and illegitimate substances in Canada. It examines the source and health risks of the most popular drugs, and argues that Canada’s drug war has very little to do with public health, but is a moral battle against socially unacceptable substances. Even though the long term damage to health from tobacco, alcohol and prescription medications may be significant, these are considered legitimate drugs in affluent Western culture, while heroin, cocaine and marijuana are not.

This book, published to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Sir Francis Grant, reintroduces a dominant figure in the Victorian art world, a leading society portrait painter and the only Scottish president of the Royal Academy. Grant, the younger son of a Perthshire laird, was largely self-taught, learning his skills by copying Old Master paintings lent to him by family and friends. After spending a substantial inheritance on his great passions - hunting to hounds and collecting paintings - Grant took the unorthodox step of turning his talents to professional use. During sittings for him in 1839, Queen Victoria was to note in her diary that he was very good looking, was a gentleman, now paints for money. Grant's connections gave him an entr, e into aristocratic and government circles and he soon became a favourite with the key political figures of the day such as Derby, Disraeli and Palmerston

The fin-de-siecle aura of high society before the War is nowhere better exemplified than on the images created by the Lafayette Studio, the major fashionable photographers or the period. All the trappings of extravagant aristocracy, the impractical, intricate details for couture gowns, the improbable hourglass figures and the gleaming cars of the early motorists are frozen for posterity memorials of a society swept away with the Great War, whose self-confidence now appears more poignant than well-founded. This was the era of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, the Devonshire House Ball and the sinking of the Titanic. This book, published to tie in with major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London, is a critical investigation of these photographic portraits of aristocracy and royalty, interpreting them within the context of their period and approaching them as emblematic of a society that was on the brink of collapse. As well as a visual treat, the reader can explore the various themes these pictures raise.
