"Jack Benny became one of the most influential entertainers of the 20th century--by being the top radio comedian, when the comics ruled radio, and radio was the most powerful and pervasive mass medium in the US. In 23 years of weekly radio broadcasts, by aiming all the insults at himself, Benny created Jack, the self-deprecating "Fall Guy" character. He indelibly shaped American humor as a space to enjoy the equal opportunities of easy camaraderie with his cast mates, and equal ego deflation. Benny was the master of comic timing, knowing just when to use silence to create suspense or to have a character leap into the dialogue to puncture Jack's pretentions. Jack Benny was also a canny entrepreneur, becoming one of the pioneering "showrunners" combining producer, writer and performer into one job. His modern style of radio humor eschewed stale jokes in favor informal repartee with comic hecklers like his valet Rochester (played by Eddie Anderson) and Mary Livingstone his offstage wife. These quirky characters bouncing off each other in humorous situations created the situation comedy. In this career study, we learn how Jack Benny found ingenious ways to sell his sponsors' products in comic commercials beloved by listeners, and how he dealt with the challenges of race relations, rigid gender ideals and an insurgent new media industry (TV). Jack Benny created classic comedy for a rapidly changing American culture, providing laughter that buoyed radio listeners from 1932's depths of the Great Depression, through World War II to the mid-1950s"--Provided by publisher.

In a masterful study Carl Richard explores how the Greek and Roman classics became enshrined in American antebellum culture. For the first time, knowledge of the classics extended beyond aristocratic males to the middle class, women, African Americans, and frontier settlers. The Civil War led to a radical alteration of the educational system in a way that steadily eroded the preeminence of the classics.

Steve Zafiris was 16 years old when the opportunity arose to travel to the United States as an officially-sponsored immigrant. With the help of an uncle, a brother of his father, he made his way to the Chicago area. While he had never specifically focused on the restaurant business as a career- opportunity, it was there he was introduced to the restaurant business in general . Through friendships he had developed in the local Greek oriented community he met the young woman, Mary, who would eventually become Mrs. Steve Zafiris. It was also very fortunate that he arrived in the Chicago metropolitan area at about the same time as McDonalds Restaurants were opening their first restaurants in the famous national chain. The events that followed, his love of the United States and the opportunity presented by McDonalds Corporation are outlined in the book and led to his coining of the phrase God Bless America and the Golden Arches.

“I was born in a small town in Germany at the wrong time in history, the beginning of the Nazi era.” Altura recalls how one early November evening, about forty Schutztaffel men break down the door of their home, destroy all their belongings, and drag her father out onto the street where they proceed to beat him nearly to death. He is then placed in a prison cell before being shipped off to Dachau concentration camp. That traumatic experience, the first of several Altura would soon endure, marked the end of her childhood, just two weeks after her seventh birthday; and signified the beginning of ten agonizing years of surviving the Holocaust. More fortunate than most, however, her family is ultimately reunited and immigrate to “golden America.” Shortly after settling in the United States, her mother—the family’s saving grace—succumbs to brain cancer, leaving Altura in profound sadness. After a painful past, she finally finds a sense of purpose and fulfillment working in a lab where she meets her future husband, Burt, who introduces her to the joys of living.
