Audiobook: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova Buy full audiobook: Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history. The letters provide links to one of the darkest powers that humanity has ever known, and to a centuries-long quest to find the source of that darkness and wipe it out. It is a quest for the truth about Vlad the Impaler, the medieval ruler whose barbarous reign formed the basis of the legend of Dracula. Generations of historians have risked their reputations, their sanity, and even their lives to learn the truth about Vlad the Impaler and Dracula. Now one young woman must decide whether to take up this quest herself, to follow her father in a hunt that nearly brought him to ruin years ago, when he was a vibrant young scholar and her mother was still alive. What does the legend of Vlad the Impaler have to do with the modern world? Is it possible that the Dracula of myth truly existed, and that he has lived on, century after century, pursuing his own unknowable ends? The answers to these questions cross time and borders, as first the father and then the daughter search for clues, from dusty Ivy League libraries to Istanbul, Budapest, and the depths of ...

The Statler Brothers - The Official Historian of Shirley Jean Berrell PLEASE NOTE: I divided my uploads between multiple channels, Bookmark this link in your browser for instant access to an index with links to all of John1948's oldies classics. LINK: Named after a brand of tissues, the four members of the Statler Brothers did not in fact share a fraternal bond; what they did share, however, was the distinction of being one of the most successful vocal harmony groups in the history of country music. Formed in the group's home base of Staunton, VA, in 1955, the Statlers were originally a church trio comprised of bass vocalist Harold Reid (born August 21, 1939), baritone Phil Balsley (August 8, 1939), and tenor Lew DeWitt (March 8, 1938). In 1960, Reid's younger brother Don (born June 5, 1945) signed on to take the lead vocal reins, and the quartet performed gospel music under the name the Kingsmen. After arranging a meeting with the promotional department for a local Johnny Cash concert, the Kingsmen were asked to open the performance. Cash was so impressed that he invited the group to join the tour, and after changing their name to the Statler Brothers, they remained on the road with Cash from 1963 to 1971. The Statlers signed to Columbia Records in 1964 and a year later scored a huge country and pop hit with DeWitt's "Flowers on the Wall," which also lent its name to their 1966 debut album. 1967's The Statler Brothers Sing the Big Hits held true to its title's promise, generating a pair of Top Ten singles in "Ruthless" and "You ...

Shall We Change the Subject? A Music Historian Reflects In this lecture, Richard Taruskin reflects on the historiography of music and its embrace of a Whiggish paradigm that he argues has had a deleterious effect on the value and practice of music. Taruskin's extensive work as a scholar and music journalist has earned him the title "America's national musicologist" (Der Spiegel). A specialist in Russian and Soviet music, twentieth-century music, the theory of performance, music and politics, and general historiography, Taruskin has authored and edited numerous books and articles, most recently the six-volume "Oxford History of Western Music" (2005) and "Music in the Western World: A History in Documents" (2007).

David Talbot, JFK Historian, Says Stop The Kennedy Smears - Sign the petition telling History Channel that until they stop running politically motivated fiction as historical "fact," you will refuse to watch their programming. Almost 50000 of you signed our petition to the History Channel telling them that you refuse to watch their programming if theyre going to produce right-wing propaganda and call it history. In response to our video and your petition, Stephen Kronish, a screenwriter for The Kennedys, told The New York Times that he based his script on books by renowned Kennedy historians, mentioning David Talbot as one of his sources. If Im wrong, Kronish told The Times, I guess all of them are wrong. So we tracked down David Talbot, who has read the script, and asked him what he thinks of Kronishs claim to have based his story on Talbots research. This video shows what Talbot had to say.
