New Orleans in the 1920's is a city of many faces. The gaiety of Mardi Gras is juxtaposed with the rampant corruption that earned New Orleans the nickname "The City That Care Forgot." The genteel decline of the French Quarter, the location of the city's original settlement, stands in contrast to the rich opulence of the Garden District, where the Americans later built their mansions. Voodoo and Catholicism exist peacefully side by side. And beneath it all, the face of the Mythos can sometimes be glimpsed .... This guidebook includes detailed chapters on: the history of New Orleans, the French Quarter and the greater city, and the bayous and coastal area. A chapter on voodoo includes guidelines for integrating it into Call of Cthulhu. New occupations unique to the Crescent City and the area are suggested, and five secret societies are covered. A scenario designed to acquaint investigators with most of New Orleans' areas completes the book.

Where in New Orleans can you can bathe in Napoleon’s bathtub, step through a time machine, or eat dinner with a ghost? What religion is even stranger than Voodoo? Why take your laundry to the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll? What is the one (delicious!) drink that makes every bartender cringe? There is no denying that New Orleans is more than just another city . . . she is truly an enigma. New Orleans is a place where struggle gives way to decadence and revelry, moss-dripped southern oaks whisper tales of dueling and murder, and long-held traditions baffle—and even appall—outsiders. With this guide, readers can seek out Calas at Elizabeth’s Restaurant and learn how this simple sweet enabled enslaved women to buy their freedom, see how Hurricane Katrina ravaged a typical home at the Flooded House Museum, and discover how Josie Arlington, the city’s most famous madam, mocked her dissenters even in death while basking in the beauty of her ornate tomb in Metairie Cemetery. Secret New Orleans is an intriguing collection of obscure people, artifacts, places, and menu items that lifts the hazy veil of The Big Easy and unmasks some of its most amazingly true stories, proving to be valuable reading for visitors and locals alike!

Hidden History of New Orleans

The history of New Orleans is one of contrasts--heroes and villains, catastrophe and celebration, sinners and saints. In this New Orleans, a serial-killing axeman threatens to murder anyone not playing jazz. A fearless band of missionary nuns pushes to civilize the frontier. During World War II, Nazi U-boats lurk off the coast, while Denton Crocker's battle with local mosquitoes contributes to victory in the Pacific. From the streetcar strikers who lined the thoroughfares with IEDs to the unsung heroine of the Battle of New Orleans, Ryan Starrett and Josh Foreman offer a dose of history that would be hard to believe if it hadn't happened here.

The title "writings" is slightly misleading; this is not a reader but a survey of jazz and jazz musicians from its inception through the rising stars of the 1990s. Davis (U. of Pittsburgh) writes in the personal tone of someone who has long been active in the jazz scene (the preface is by Donald Byrd, one of many musicians Davis has played with), offering many frank opinions that seek to correct historic misconceptions about jazz and jazz musicians. The audio CD features classic works from Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, and Coleman Hawkins, among others. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

With this book, home cooks will turn their kitchens into some of New Orleans premiere restaurants, helped along by fifteen master chefs.

Western civilization as we know it today is not the end result of steady progress, but of series of revolutions. The radical departure from orthodox history that Nicholas Hagger takes is to show how all these-the Protestant Revolution, which in turn provided the idealogical foundations of the English, American, French and Russian-have their roots in ideas and influences that have hitherto been unexpressed, secret.

The 1891 New Orleans Lynchings and U S  Italian Relations

On the centenary of the 1891 New Orleans Crisis and U.S.-Italian war-scare, this authoritative study by Marco Rimanelli and Sheryl L. Postman represents the latest, and most complete and objective socio-politico-literary study of that period. Although long forgotten, this key domestic and diplomatic crisis exposed in a flash of violence all the simmering anti-Italian racial tensions rocking New Orleans and America. Ethnic hostility toward southern Italian immigration and "Mafia" criminality exploded in New Orleans with the murder of Police Chief D.C. Hennessy and the lynching by a 20,000-strong mob of 11 imprisoned Italians. Far from being spontaneous, the lynching was secretly engineered by Lousiana's establishment in a strategy to exterminate the "Mafia," expropriate the rich Italian tropical fruit trade with Central America, and especially, cajole the independent-minded Italians into joining the White Supremacist front, which disenfranchised Louisiana's Blacks in 1898. Nationally, the lynching split Americans between advocates and opposers of "popular justice" and anti-immigration laws. Even more importantly, the New Orleans Lynchings provoked a major international crisis and war-scare with Italy in 1891-92, while promoting at home the long awaited nationalistic "Reunification" of North and South against "foreign foes." The U.S. government's refusal to pay reparations until 1892 led Italy to break diplomatic relations, while both governments were trapped in a rigid international confrontation by their own domestic political fragility and collapsing electoral support. Finally America's own defenselessness against Italy's navy (The world's third largest) forced the U.S. to build a new modern navy, which first propelled them to victory in the 1898 Spanish-American War, and later on to global Superpowership.
