This book explores a widely lived yet little remembered facet of America's cultural and political history: the Cold War as experienced at the grassroots level. Here, Fried traces the cresting of modern patriotic observance during World War II and then shows how patriotic and civic activists afterwards labored to recreate a remembered unity and commitment in the tension-filled Cold War era. A variety of national and local entities mounted campaigns "to sell America to the Americans" through "rededication" celebrations like Know Your America Week and Freedom Week. The American Heritage Foundation wheeled out the Freedom Train, which carried seminal documents of the nation's past to railroad depots across the US. Fried revisits the 1950 "Communist invasion" of Mosinee, Wisconsin, when ersatz Stalinists harassed and bullied citizens and the town's eateries served only potato soup and black bread. He also depicts the creation and inauguration of new patriotic events like Loyalty Day and Armed Forces Day. Meticulously researched, this book recreates a colorful, sometimes comical, and always revealing dimension of our history.
"Combining a murder mystery with astute asides on aspects of contemporary Austrian society, Eva Rossmann's tenth novel featuring Mira Valensky, a journalist who often stumbles into criminal investigations led by Dr. Zuckerbrot, is an entertaining and satisfying treat. A dead man is found on the terrace of a luxurious rooftop apartment in the center of Vienna. He is tied to a lounge chair, was apparently tortured, and there is a note, "You're the first. Greetings from Russia." Is he the rich Russian Mira saw on Arlberg? Who is responsible for the murder? Could it be Austrians seeking revenge for events during the post-World War II occupation, tough Russian businessmen and more sinister elements, or disgruntled investors in transnational ventures? Helped by her Bosnian friend, Vesna, Mira is determined to find out. Her investigations acquaint us with Austrian predilections and regulations, fine food, cooking as an aesthetic pleasure, unconventional relationships, and ambivalent feelings about the influx of wealthy Russians. Mira's curiosity brings her to Moscow and back, she is followed and attacked, but manages to solve the case and restore her personal life"--
