It seems these days that anyone who's been famous for 10 minutes or dead for 12 gets a book, many of which read like dozens of press clippings strung together. But this life of James Beard, who dominated the American food scene for almost 50 years, is as much a work of social history as it is the biography of a single individual.

Most of the 3 million veterans who survived their time in and around Vietnam have long ago readjusted to civilian life.

It is the summer of 1968: "the last summer of ... dresses in those colors just short of gumdrop in shade, closer perhaps to Necco Wafers or tiny Valentine candy hearts: pink, green, lavender, turquoise ... yellow." It is also the summer of Robert F. Kennedy's assassination and brutal violence against protesters at the Democratic convention in Chicago. And it is the summer when William Lowry and Emily Byrne, the teenage protagonists of Robert Clark's novel, fall in love.

Clarke announced his hiring plans in a speech at the Consumer Bankers Assn.

It was one great big sigh of relief, sailing up toward the sky, out toward the fence and finally pounding into a brown right-field seat. Bip Roberts hit it out. It was the sixth inning during the final game of a 12-game home stand, and the Padres had the lead. Three innings later, it was finished, a badly needed, 4-3 victory over St. Louis in front of 18,562 at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium.
