This publication contains over 6000 drink concoctions collected in over five hundred cities, towns, little hamlets and many villages in over fifty countries and all of the fifty states. That is almost three times the number of recipes in any other drink book that has been published up to this time. The drink recipes and other bits of information and humor were collected over a period of fifty-two years of traveling, dining, drinking and working in the Hotel and Restaurant industry. Most of the recipes were told to me by bartenders, wine stewards, wine producers, distillery managers, liquor salesmen, brew masters and drinking folk that I met in my travels, including a "white lightning" entrepreneur. Throughout this book there are hundreds of jokes, quotes, toasts, quips, statements, recommended name brand alcoholic delights, ways to make your own, serious and amusing anecdotes and philosophies by famous and infamous people that I have collected in my travels or enjoyed over a cocktail in some distant oasis. I have tried to give proper credit, where credit is due; but for those that I can find no origin, I simply call them "Trixieism's" You be the judge."

2020 sucked. It's been a year of bushfires, floods, a recession, a global pandemic and Kanye West's presidential campaign. But it was also the year we all watched Hamilton, baked sourdough, had dinner parties on Zoom and drank constantly - okay, so maybe that wasn't such a great thing either. Amid the non-stop trauma, however, it's been a year of togetherness and community spirit - though mostly trauma. But as we limp towards 2021, it's time to look back at it all, and laugh. Because at least we all suffered through this year together. Not literally together - that was generally illegal. But we were side by side in our bubbles, all going through the same thing. The 2020 Dictionary is an invaluable record of all we learned in the year the world turned to sh*t, helpfully collected in alphabetical order, with jokes where appropriate, as well as in some places where they probably aren't. What They Said About This Book* The 2020 Dictionary will just disappear in the spring. Donald Trump I take full responsibility for blaming the health minister for this book. Daniel Andrews Stay six feet away from the book at all times. Dr Anthony Fauci This tome feels rather sesquipedalian. Boris Johnson This book is not allowed into Queensland unless it's playing footy. Annastacia Palaszczuk I've asked Angus Taylor to investigate burning this book as an energy source. Scott Morrison *These quotes are as real as hydroxychloroquine is effective against Covid

The Gilded Age was an important three-decade period in American history. It was a time of transition, when the United States began to recover from its Civil War and post-war rebuilding phase. It was as a time of progress in technology and industry, of regression in race relations, and of stagnation in politics and foreign affairs. It was a time when poor southerners began farming for a mere share of the crop rather than for wages, when pioneers settled in the harsh land and climate of the Great Plains, and when hopeful prospectors set out in search of riches in the gold fields out West. The Historical Dictionary of the Gilded Age relates the history of the major events, issues, people, and themes of the American "Gilded Age" (1869-1899). This period of unprecedented economic growth and technical advancement is chronicled in this reference and includes a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries.

The Beat Movement was and is a literary and arts movement, the most radical and innovative of the 20th century, and because it was so open to new ideas of poetics and aesthetics, it has adapted from decade to decade. The history of the Beat Movement is still being written in the early years of the 21st century. Unlike other kinds of literary and artistic the Beat Movement is self-perpetuating. After the 1950s generation, a new generation arose in the 1960s led by writers such as Diane Wakowski, Anne Waldman, and poets from the East Side Scene. In the 1970s and 1980s writers from the Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church and contributors to World magazine continued the movement. The 1980s and 1990s Language Movement saw itself as an outgrowth and progression of previous Beat aesthetics. Today poets and writers in San Francisco still gather at City Lights Bookstore and in Boulder at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics and continue the movement. It is now a postmodern movement and probably would be unrecognizable to the earliest Beats. It may even be in the process of finally shedding the name Beat. But the Movement continues. The Historical Dictionary of the Beat Movement covers the movements history through a chronology, an introductory essay, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 700 cross-referenced entries on significant people, themes, critical issues, and the most significant novels, poems, and volumes of poetry and prose that have formed the Beat canon. This book is a vital reference tool for any researcher interested in learning more about the Beat Movement.
