A Glimpse of Great Salt Lake Utah: Union Pacific System
´Some cookbooks take you on a journey that is as poetic as it is geographical and culinary, and Salt & Time is just such a one...enthusiastic, often playful, and full of encouragement to cook dishes that are invitingly unfamiliar.´ - Nigella Lawson ´If anyone had to write a Russian cookbook now, it would have to be her, and her book will end up being a classic´ - Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka and Kaukasis ´One flick through this book...shows the region´s cuisine take form in dazzling vibrancy´ - Foodism Salt & Time will transform perceptions of the food of the former Soviet Union, and especially Siberia - the crossroads of Eastern European and Central Asian cuisine - with 100 inviting recipes adapted for modern tastes and Western kitchens, and evocative storytelling to explain and entice. Why not try the restorative Solyanka fish soup (a famous Russian hangover cure), savour the fragrant Chicken with prunes or treat yourself to some Napoleon cake. ´Often we need distance and time, both to see things better and to feel closer to them. This is certainly true of the food of my home country, Russia - or Siberia, to be exact. When I think of Siberia, I hear the sound of fresh snow crunching beneath my feet. Today, whenever I crush sea salt flakes between my fingers as I cook, I think of that sound. In this book I feature recipes that are authentic to Siberia, classic Russian flavour combinations and my modern interpretations. You will find dishes from the pre-revolutionary era and the Soviet days, as well as contemporary approaches - revealing a cuisine that is vibrant, nourishing, exciting and above all relevant no matter the time or the place.´ - Alissa Timoshkina

From the award-winning author of The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov comes the brilliantly conceived and precisely rendered novel Immaculate Blue, which explores the lives of four people - Anatole, Leigh, Chris, and Lydia - and their intermingled and unwinding desires. Set in upstate New York, the novel follows these characters as they achieve their aims in lives redolent with loss and hope, humor and sadness, union and alienation. Russell picks up the thread of his critically acclaimed novel The Salt Point 20 years later and tracks the lives of these friends, some of whom not only lost touch with each other, but have also lost their way. Moving, at times shocking, and always memorable, Immaculate Blue points to where the personal and the political come together and shape our lives in unexpected ways. With this newest novel, Paul Russell reminds us of why he is one of the most important voices on the literary scene. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charles Leggett.

Most Americans consider détente, the reduction of tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union, to be among the Nixon administration´s most significant foreign policy successes. The diplomatic back channel that national security advisor Henry Kissinger established with Soviet ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin, became the most important method of achieving this thaw in the Cold War. Kissinger praised back channels for preventing leaks, streamlining communications, and circumventing what he perceived to be the US State Department´s unresponsive and self-interested bureaucracy. Nixon and Kissinger´s methods however, were widely criticized by State Department officials left out of the loop, and by an American press and public weary of executive branch prevarication and secrecy. Richard A. Moss´s penetrating study documents and analyzes US-Soviet back channels from Nixon´s inauguration, through what has widely been heralded as the apex of détente, the May 1972 Moscow Summit. He traces the evolution of confidential-channel diplomacy and examines major flashpoints, including the 1970 crisis over Cienfuegos, Cuba, the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks (SALT), US dealings with China, deescalating tensions in Berlin, and the Vietnam War. Moss argues that while the back channels improved US-Soviet relations in the short term, the Nixon-Kissinger methods provided a poor foundation for lasting policy.

Following World War II, through the 1990s, there existed a sense of mutual distrust between the United States and the Soviet Union. The hostile environment included American fears of a Russian plan to control the world and the USSR´s resentment over US intervention in foreign countries. The Cold War includes such speeches as JFK´s address to the nation on the arms buildup in Cuba and commending West Berliners on their dedication to democracy, Presidents Nixon and Ford on treaty talks in Helsinki, and Ronald Reagan confronting Mikhail Gorbachev at the Berlin Wall.

From 1964 to 1980, the United States was buffeted by a variety of international crises, including the nation´s defeat in Vietnam, the growing aggression of the Soviet Union, and Washington´s inability to free the 52 American hostages held by Islamic extremists in Iran. Through this period and in the decades that followed, Commentary, Human Events, and National Review magazines were critical in supporting the development of GOP conservative positions on key issues that shaped events at home and abroad. These publications and the politicians they influenced pursued a fundamental realignment of US foreign policy that culminated in the election of Ronald Reagan.Paving the Way for Reagan closely examines the ideas and opinions conveyed by the magazines in relationship to their critiques of the dominant liberal foreign policy events of the 1960s and 1970s. Revealed is how the journalists´ key insights and assessments of the US strategies on Vietnam, China, the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks (SALT), the United Nations, the Panama Canal, Rhodesia, and the Middle East applied pressure to leaders on the Right within the GOP who they believed were not being faithful to conservative principles. Their views were ultimately adopted within the conservative movement, and subsequently, helped lay the foundation for Reagan´s ´´peace through strength´´ foreign policy.The book is published by The University Press of Kentucky.
