During his presidency, Jimmy Carter received a comprehensive analysis of his family’s genealogy, dating back 12 generations, from leaders of the Mormon Church. More recently Carter’s son Jeff took over the family history, determined to discover all that he could about his ancestors. This resulting volume traces every ancestral line of both Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter back to the original immigrants to America and chronicles their origins, occupations, and life dates. Among his forebears Carter found cabinet makers, farmers, preachers, illegitimate children, slave owners, indentured servants, a former Hessian soldier who fought against Napoleon, and even a spy for General George Washington at Valley Forge. With never-before-published historic photographs and a foreword by President Jimmy Carter, this is the definitive saga of a remarkable American family.

Written with the cooperation of President Jimmy Carter and his family, this book provides an intimate glimpse inside the life of the woman who--as nurse, mother and social justice activist in segregated southwest Georgia--made a lifelong habit of breaking the rules defining a woman's place in and out of the home and the status of blacks in society. As the only white nurse in her rural community who cared for black families, as a 68-year old Peace Corps Volunteer in India, as a fearless supporter of civil rights and as a First Mother unlike any other, Lillian Carter showed how individual courage, conviction and compassion can make a difference. Drawing on interviews with friends and colleagues, members of the Plains, Georgia, black community, Peace Corps Volunteers who trained with her, White House insiders and key players in the civil rights movement, as well as letters, documents and photographs never before made public, this book captures the essence of the woman the press dubbed "Rose Kennedy without the hair dye" and "First Mother of the world."

Covering their lives from childhood to the end of the Georgia governorship, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter is one of the few major biographies of an American president that pays significant attention to the First Lady. So deeply were their lives and aspirations intertwined, a close friend once remarked: "You can't really understand Jimmy Carter unless you know Rosalynn." The story of one is the story of the other. To recount their remarkable lives, E. Stanly Godbold, Jr. draws on academic and military records, the governor's correspondence, the recollections of the Carters themselves, as well as original, unpublished interviews with a wide variety of participants in the Carters' political and personal lives. The book reveals a man who was far more complex than the peanut farmer of popular myth, a man who cited both Reinhold Niebuhr and Bob Dylan as early influences on his legal philosophy, was heir to a sizable fortune, and who, with the help of Rosalynn, built a lucrative agribusiness. Nicknamed "Hotshot" by his father, Carter was the first president born in a hospital, rode a motorcycle before entering politics, counted Tolstoy, Dylan Thomas, William Faulkner, and James Agee among his favorite authors, and claimed his wife Rosalynn as the most influential person in his life. Volume I in this two-volume biography details how the Carters rose to power, managed their private and public lives, governed Georgia, and seized control of the national Democratic party. The cast of colorful characters includes "Miss Allie" Smith, "Mr. Earl" and "Miss Lillian," brother Billy, Rachel Clark, Admiral Rickover, George Wallace, Lester Maddox, Richard Nixon, daughter Amy, Charles Kirbo, Hamilton Jordan, Jody Powell, and many more. It is a sweeping, Faulknerian tale of individuals who would change the image of the South in the national mind and the role of the South in the presidency. Indeed, Carter shocked the state of Georgia and the entire country by calling for an end to racial discrimination in 1971, thus launching his national political career. Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter neither sanctifies nor vilifies the Carters but offers instead an even-handed, brilliantly researched, and utterly absorbing account of two ordinary people whose lives together took them to the heights of power and public service in America.

In this autobiography, President "Carter tells what he is proud of and what he might do differently. He discusses his regret at losing his re-election, but how he and Rosalynn pushed on and made a new life and second and third rewarding careers. He is frank about the presidents who have succeeded him, world leaders, and his passions for the causes he cares most about, particularly the condition of women and the deprived people of the developing world"

Wenn der schwarze König fällt ... Als der geachtete Richter Oliver Garland überraschend stirbt, ist sein Sohn Talcott überzeugt, dass ein schwaches Herz die Ursache war. Doch warum wird Talcott ständig nach den «Vorkehrungen» gefragt, die sein Vater für den Todesfall getroffen habe? Warum wird er verfolgt? Und warum fehlen zwei Schachfiguren auf dem sonst so sorgsam gehüteten Schachbrett des Richters? Bald darauf wird ein zweiter Toter aus dem Umfeld Oliver Garlands aufgefunden. Und Talcott sieht sich hineingezogen in die dunkle Vergangenheit seines Vaters. Er muss alles aufs Spiel setzen: seine Ehre, seinen Ruf – und sein Leben. «Seit Tom Wolfe habe ich keinen so vielschichtigen, mitreißenden und bereichernden Roman gelesen wie ‹Schachmatt›.» (USA Today) «Ein prall erzähltes, anekdoten- und facettenreiches Werk.» (Der Spiegel) «Dieses Buch kann man einfach nicht aus der Hand legen.» (New York Times Book Review) «Wunderbar erzählt und clever konstruiert. ‹Schachmatt› ist eine lebendige und vielschichtige Familiensaga, die geschickt verbunden ist mit der Spannung eines Thrillers ... Ein wirklicher Genuss!» (John Grisham) «Man kann dieses Buch einfach nicht aus der Hand legen ... Ein ebenso außergewöhnlicher wie überzeugender Roman.» (New York Times) «Ein unterhaltsamer, eleganter und ideenreicher Roman mit einem wunderbaren Kosmos von Figuren.» (The New York Review of Books) «Scharfsichtige Beobachtungen, gepaart mit einem ernsthaften sozialen Gewissen, das den meisten Büchern dieser Art fehlt ... Ein sprachliches Meisterwerk.» (Time)

President Carter has written importantly about his spiritual life and faith. In this book, he offers a personal consideration of "moral values" as they relate to the important issues of the day. He puts forward a passionate defense of separation of church and state, and a strong warning of where the country is heading as the lines between politics and rigid religious fundamentalism are blurred. He reacts to some trends involving both the religious and the political worlds as they have increasingly become intertwined, and including some of the most crucial and controversial issues of the day--frequently encapsulated under "moral values." They include preemptive war, women's rights, terrorism, civil liberties, homosexuality, abortion, the death penalty, science and religion, environmental degradation, nuclear arsenals, America's global image, fundamentalism, and the melding of religion and politics. Sustained by his faith, Carter assesses these issues in a forceful and unequivocal but balanced and courageous way.--From publisher description.

Das inflationär missbrauchte Attribut "Kult" trifft auf dieses Buch tatsächlich zu. Der Provinzflüchtling Jack Carter hat als Handlanger eines Londoner Verbrechersyndikats Karriere gemacht und reist nun zurück nach Hause in ein tristes Industriekaff, um den Tod seines Bruders zu klären. Autor Ted Lewis hat sich von US-Vorbildern wie Hammett und Chandler inspirieren lassen, aber sein Stil ist roher und zugleich einfühlsam und melancholisch. Zum ersten Mal wurde dieser Roman 1970 veröffentlicht, die Verfilmung "Get Carter" mit Michael Caine ist Filmgeschichte. Ein Buch, das mehr Leser verdient als das übliche Kult-Publikum.
