Born in poverty in 19th century New York City, Mike Barnes rose to become America’s premiere 20th century American show fair impresario, who embodied the Irving Berlin lyric, “There’s no business like show business.” For four decades, he presented dramatic spectacles worthy of Cecil B. DeMille, musical and dancing revues that rivaled anything by Busby Berkeley, animal acts, daredevil wing walkers, human cannonballs, flagpole sitters and auto demolitions. He assembled and directed these acts, entertaining millions across the United States, even during times of depression and world war. His influence on outdoor lighting and sound system presentation is still felt today in 21st century outdoor performances. Besides a snapshot of midcentury America, America’s State Fair Impresario:The Life & Times of Mike Barnes is the story of a modest man who was a brilliant showman, shrewd businessman, philanthropist, and exemplary family man. In short, a legendary American.

A study of Anglo-American connections in their widest sense. Studies of Anglo-American relations often focus narrowly on official government-to-government contacts rather than on other kinds of less formal links. This book seeks to redress that imbalance by examining not only diplomatic relations, but also a wide variety of social, economic, intellectual and cultural connections. It also examines Anglo-American relations over the whole period since the American Revolution. It aims to open up new themes and perspectives which illuminate the evolution of bilateral relations, mutual perceptions and the comparative development of both nations.
