Shoeless

Shoeless

"Shoeless" Joe Jackson was one of baseball's greatest hitters and most colorful players. Born Joseph Jefferson Wofford Jackson on July 16, 1888, in Pickens County, South Carolina, Jackson went to work in a textile mill when he was around six years old, and got his start in baseball playing for the Brandon Mill team at the age of 13 earning $2.50 a game. He emerged as the star of the team and a favorite of fans with his hitting and throwing abilities, and moved up to play in the Carolina Association, where he received his nickname "Shoeless" because the blisters on his feet forced him to play in his stockings. He then made his move to the major leagues, signing on with the Philadelphia Athletics and rising to fame. This work chronicles Jackson's life from his poor beginnings to his involvement in the scandal surrounding the 1919 World Series to his life after baseball and his death December 5, 1951, with most of the work focusing on his baseball career.

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson

Cet ouvrage richement illustré retrace la carrière d'une légende de la musique populaire, de l'enfant star aux interprétations magistrales qui propulseront les Jackson 5 sous les feux des projecteurs, au déchaînement médiatique que suscitera l'annonce d'une nouvelle tournée prévue à l'été 2009. Michael Jackson est âgé de 11 ans à peine lorsque I Want You Back se hisse au sommet du hit-parade du Billboard, en janvier 1970. Suivront d'innombrables succès, à la fois avec les Jackson 5 et tout au long de sa carrière solo. En 1979, de l'album Off The Wall qui lui vaut un disque de platine sont extraits quatre titres classés en tête du Top Ten, mais c'est avec Thriller, meilleure vente d'album de tous les temps que Michael Jackson accède à la gloire, décrochant au passage pas moins de sept Grammy Awards ! La superstar révolutionne le monde des clips vidéos avec Thriller, une référence en la matière, alors que son illustre moonwalk devient sa marque de fabrique, tout comme son unique gant pailleté porté à la main droite et ses baskets délacées. Michael Jackson et son incroyable charisme. Artiste flamboyant, interprète éblouissant qui habitait la scène. Sa mort met un terme à un destin chahuté, mais le règne du Roi de la Pop demeure, à travers un répertoire inégalé qui lui assure un statut d'éternelle légende.

On Michael Jackson

On Michael Jackson

In On Michael Jackson—an at once passionate, incisive, and bracing work of cultural analysis—Pulitzer Prize–winning critic for The New York Times Margo Jefferson brilliantly unravels the complexities of one of the most enigmatic figures of our time. Who is Michael Jackson and what does it mean to call him a “What Is It”? What do P. T. Barnum, Peter Pan, and Edgar Allan Poe have to do with our fascination with Jackson? How did his curious Victorian upbringing and his tenure as a child prodigy on the “chitlin’ circuit” inform his character and multiplicity of selves? How is Michael Jackson’s celebrity related to the outrageous popularity of nineteenth-century minstrelsy? What is the perverse appeal of child stars for grown-ups and what is the price of such stardom for these children and for us? What uncanniness provoked Michael Jackson to become “Alone of All His Race, Alone of All Her Sex,” while establishing himself as an undeniably great performer with neo-Gothic, dandy proclivities and a producer of visionary music videos? What do we find so unnerving about Michael Jackson’s presumed monstrosity? In short, how are we all of us implicated? In this stunning book, Margo Jefferson gives us the incontrovertible lowdown on call-him-what-you-wish; she offers a powerful reckoning with a quintessential, richly allusive signifier of American society and popular culture.
