by J. C. De LaduranteyMaking Your Memories with Rock and Roll and Doo Wop is a reflection on the music and artists of the 1950's and early 60's with an emphasis on the Doo Wop sound.

With quizzes and chapters on key performers as well as a great index, this may be the last book ever written about a very special era in the annuals of American music.

His life and legacy are chronicled in Edward IV, England’s Forgotten Warrior King. For ten years, Edward struggled against rep... more
by Rick Harper“Harper gets to the business of historical, political and social analysis, he is quite knowledgeable, open minded and shrewd. There’s the long history of racial troubles, the rise of La Raza Unida and the remaking of the South Texas political landscape. T e era’s larger than life Texas movers & shakers and wheelers and dealers litter the story.” -Kirkus Reviews “The book covers Rodriguez’s Texas Ranger adventures, including dustups rowdy enough to rival any Western movie. Heavy emph... more

by Savannah JordanThe basic premise of the book is that democracy has been rare and fleeting in human history because it, more so than other forms of government, requires of the ordinary citizens virtues that are antithetical to the powerful animal passions that have been essential to the evolution of the human species. These virtues are self-control, self-reliance, a belief in the equality of all, and a concern for the well-being of everyone. The early American settlers possessed these virtues because their de... more
by Richard Carl BrightWhat follows here, just a brief insight into Pain and Purpose in the Pacific. This book did not begin with the idea of a chronology of the battles of the Pacific War, although an overview is included. But instead it was intended to be a brief account of the battles on Saipan, Tinian, and Okinawa as I retrace the travels of one Marine from the farmland of Minnesota to Japan and back. Carl J. Johnson spent 30 months in the Pacific. Four of those months were in bitter combat on the islands of Saipa... more

This new book by a noted historian and professor is one of the best books available about relations between the United States and Mexico before, during, and after the Mexican-American War. It examines Abraham Lincoln's opposition to the war as a Congressman, and his support for Mexico as President. The book is long overdue because it treats Abraham Lincoln as an international figure, not merely an American one.
by Robert A. NowlanAmerican Presidents, Polk to Hayes. What They Did. What They Said, What Was Said About Them is the second book in a planned five volume series, covering all the Presidents. These 43 men (so far) have succeeded in some regards and failed in others as they strove to do the best they could in what is surely one of the most difficult jobs in the world.
