Queen Bees looks at the lives of six remarkable women who made careers out of being society hostesses, including Lady Astor, who went on to become the first female MP, and Mrs Greville, who cultivated relationships with Edward VII, as well as Lady Londonderry, Lady Cunard, Laura Corrigan and Lady Colefax. Told with wit, verve and heart, Queen Bees is the story of a form of societal revolution and the extraordinary women who helped it happen. In the aftermath of the First World War, the previously strict hierarchies of the British class system were weakened. For a number of ambitious, spirited women, this was the chance they needed to slip through the cracks and take their place at the top of society as the great hostesses of the time. In an age when the place of women was uncertain, becoming a hostess was not a chore but a career choice, and though some of the hostesses´ backgrounds were surprisingly humble, their aspirations were anything but. During the interwar years, these extraordinary women ruled over London society from their dining tables and salons - entertaining everyone from the Mosleys to the Mitfords, from millionaires to maharajas, from film stars to royalty - and their influence can still be felt today. 1.

Mr Five Per Cent: The Many Lives of Calouste Gu...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

When Calouste Gulbenkian died in 1955 at the age of 86, he was the richest man in the world, known as ´Mr Five Per Cent´ for his personal share of Middle East oil. The son of a wealthy Armenian merchant in Istanbul, for half a century he brokered top-level oil deals, concealing his mysterious web of business interests and contacts within a labyrinth of Asian and European cartels, and convincing governments and oil barons alike of his impartiality as an ´honest broker´. Today his name is known principally through the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, to which his spectacular art collection and most of his vast wealth were bequeathed.Gulbenkian´s private life was as labyrinthine as his business dealings. He insisted on the highest ´moral values´, yet ruthlessly used his wife´s charm as a hostess to further his career, and demanded complete obedience from his family, whom he monitored obsessively. As a young man he lived a champagne lifestyle, escorting actresses and showgirls, and in later life - on doctor´s orders - he slept with a succession of discreetly provided young women. Meanwhile he built up a superb art collection which included Rembrandts and other treasures sold to him by Stalin from the Hermitage Museum.Published to mark the 150th anniversary of his birth, Mr Five Per Cent reveals Gulbenkian´s complex and many-sided existence. Written with full access to the Gulbenkian Foundation´s archives, this is the fascinating story of the man who more than anyone else helped shape the modern oil industry. 1. Language: English.

The Hoover Dam: The History and Construction of...

This morning I came, I saw, and I was conquered, as everyone would be who sees for the first time this great feat of mankind.... Ten years ago the place where we gathered was an unpeopled, forbidding desert. In the bottom of the gloomy canyon whose precipitous walls rose to height of more than a thousand feet, flowed a turbulent, dangerous river.... The site of Boulder City was a cactus-covered waste. And the transformation wrought here in these years is a twentieth century marvel.” (President Franklin D. Roosevelt, September 30, 1935) During the 1930s, at the height of the Great Depression, thousands of workers began work on the Hoover Dam, built in the Black Canyon, which had been cut by the powerful Colorado River. The Colorado River was responsible for the Grand Canyon, and by the 20th century, the idea of damming the river and creating an artificial lake was being explored for all of its potential, including hydroelectric power and irrigation. By the time the project was proposed in the 1920s, the contractors vowing to build it were facing the challenge of building the largest dam the world had ever known. As if that wasn’t enough, the landscape was completely unforgiving, as described by the famous explorer John Wesley Powell generations earlier: ´´The landscape everywhere, away from the river, is of rock - cliffs of rock, tables of rock, plateaus of rock, terraces of rock, crags of rock - ten thousand strangely carved forms...cathedral shaped buttes, towering hundreds or thousands of feet, cliffs that cannot be scaled, and canyon walls that shrink the river into insignificance, with vast hollow domes and tall pinnacles and shafts set on the verge overhead; and all highly colored.” UNKNOWN N N ©2012- Charles River Editors;(P)2015 Charles River Editors http://www.audible.de/pd/B00VTUHCKG?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B00VTUHCKG?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Boys and Toys (Unabridged) 16.95 AVAILABLE Boys and Toys (Unabridged) Boys and Toys (Unabridged) Cara Lockwood Sex toy party hostess Liv Tanaka has a collection.

Hey, wearing a leather corset and stilettos (while selling dildos) pays the bills. Just don´t tell her very conservative parents. Because if they discovered Liv´s sex-toy-selling Asian Elvira´´ alter ego, her parents would disown her. So far, Liv´s doing a bang-up job of keeping her two worlds separate... until Porter Benjamin shows up at her party. Tall and too-tasty-to-resist Porter, who works for her father. Porter, who wants Liv to host a party just for him. And oh, she´s tempted. But getting involved with Porter means mixing those two worlds that Liv desperately needs to keep separate. And now Liv´s Naughty Toybox is starting to look a lot like Pandora´s box.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Nolan.
