The “compelling” New York Times bestseller by the Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist, capturing the 1964 World Series between the Yankees and Cardinals (Newsweek). David Halberstam, an avid sports writer with an investigative reporter’s tenacity, superbly details the end of the fifteen-year reign of the New York Yankees in October 1964. That October found the Yankees going head-to-head with the St. Louis Cardinals for the World Series pennant. Expertly weaving the narrative threads of both teams’ seasons, Halberstam brings the major personalities on the field—from switch-hitter Mickey Mantle to pitcher Bob Gibson—to life. Using the teams’ subcultures, Halberstam also analyzes the cultural shifts of the sixties. The result is a unique blend of sports writing and cultural history as engrossing as it is insightful. This ebook features an extended biography of David Halberstam.

In dieser Reihe werden zum ersten Mal lateinische Handschriften der Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek vorgestellt. Der Band bietet Beschreibungen von 95 vollstandigen Handschriften und 110 selbststandigen Fragmenten aus der Zeit zwischen dem 8. und dem 17. Jahrhundert. Obwohl der inhaltliche Schwerpunkt auf theologischen bzw. liturgischen Werken liegt, finden sich zahlreiche juristische sowie medizinische und historische Texte. Einige Bande sind reich illuminiert. Uber die Halfte der hier erschlossenen Codices stammt aus Erfurter Bibliotheken, aus der Kartause Salvatorberg, der Benediktinerabtei auf dem Petersberg oder dem Collegium universitatis. Weitere Bande waren im Vorbesitz des ersten Weimarer Bibliothekars, Konrad Samuel Schurzfleisch (1641-1708). Diese Sammlung dokumentiert die kulturgeschichtlichen Interessen des grossherzoglichen Hauses Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach und die Tatigkeit von Goethes Schwager Christian August Vulpius (1762-1827) bei der Erwerbung und Erschliessung der Handschriften.
