By New Yorker, The

New York: Random House, 2016. First edition. Hardcover. Fine copy/fine. 8vo. Two-tone boards. Pp. xiv, 706. Contributors. Edited by Henry Finder. Introduction by David Remnick. David Remnick, the current editor of The New Yorker, writes about how his predecessor, William Shawn, sought to make the magazine "more politically engaged, more formally daring, more vivid, and more intellectually exciting than it had ever been or wished to be." To do that he gathered writers of talent who were able to record the spirit of the time, including James Baldwin, Richard Rovere, Calvin Trillin, Jonathan Miller, Hans Koningsberger, Mavis Gallant, and A. J. Liebling. This book is exceptionally interesting.

Kersting. Translated from the German by J.

Their motives were pious or vainglorious or mercenary—sometimes all three. The remnants of this astonishing episode can still be seen throughout the Levant in a series of fortifications which were built as offensive bases from which the Crusaders could maraude the surrounding areas controlled by the enemy.
