"Rebuilding a Dream" reveals why our nation is at a crossroads and must decide whether to continue the efforts begun 50 years ago, in the wake of rioting in dozens of cities, to provide affordable housing, revitalize cities and create equal opportunity. This hard-hitting book by veteran journalist Andre Shashaty digs into today's housing affordability crisis and the resurgence of urban decline to make a bold call for renewed efforts to reduce homelessness and inequality, and add... more

by Elmer LightmanThe book is an extensive compendium refuting Limbaugh in 14 areas with in-depth chapters of information on the topics he misleads on. The chapter titles will guide you. I recommend delving into subject areas that interest the reader then go to the last three chapters V-3, VIII, IX and X. That's where I present information not generally known, if at all, about "conservatism" so called today, what makes the 30% or so of the population who are hard core "conservatives," and whether it's really co... more
by Rodolfo TelloWhat makes indigenous peoples conserve or degrade biodiversity? This study about the hunting practices of the Wachiperi of the Peruvian rainforest provides a superb example of the changing environmental behavior of indigenous groups, particularly in light of widespread phenomena such as cultural change, market expansion, and greater diversification of livelihoods. The reasons why indigenous communities end up degrading or conserving natural resources are addressed in a comprehensive yet accessib... more
by Jennifer LarsonMost Americans, regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum, are tired of the politics in Washington. We voted for Congress to make changes and for our president to follow through on promises of hope and moving forward, but where have we truly gone and is there any hope of finding our way back?

by Nathan Richendollar"Sic Semper Res Publica:" is the tale of America's decline as told by a teenage onlooker. The author is highly accomplished in his studies and rolls his knowledge & experiences (& empathizes with the experiences of others) into this substantial and informative book. The author maintains a hopeful but foreboding tone throughout as he addresses all of America's issues, past precedents, and he makes suggests for solutions. From healthcare to the banking system, from immigration to national defens... more
by A.J. NelsonGive America a Chance; The Rants and Raves of an American Patriot is not your typical "support your country" book. For one year, I challenged myself to purchase all-American products. I journaled every success, every challenge, and every failure. Give America a Chance; The Rants and Raves of an American Patriot gives you the opportunity to read my journal. Like I said, this is not your typical book. There's a reason "rants and raves" are included in the title.
Nuclear War: Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and a Workable Moral Strategy for Achieving and Preserving World Peaceby Raymond G. WilsonAn insane world we created. Seventy years after the 1945 ending, the nuclear madness we created is now endemic for the world, like a cancer of the spirit of the world, like a multi-faceted plague, by which we all could succumb. If it were not so damned serious it would be laughable; that the great majority of all people of the earth want peace and a better life so badly, and their leaders seem powerless and sufficiently witless to obtain it for them. Where now are the leaders who have the w... more
by Dr. Frank RybickiDuring World War II the Nazi doctrine was being spread to homes across the United States by way of short-wave radio. The goal was to undermine the nation's will to fight. The Federal government had its own interpretation of these broadcasts and decided to re-define the term "treason." Propaganda efforts aimed directly at American homes by American radio commentators in Berlin would not be tolerated. Eight U.S. citizens were indicted for treason but only two would ever stand trial on American soi... more
by Nazimudeen SaleemThe concept of market economy and capitalism is said to have created miracles in lifting the economic prosperity and the standard of living of people worldwide, particularly in the developed economies of the West and Japan since the forties. In an age of globalization and commercialization, the author of this book Nazimudeen Saleem wonders if we could continue to enjoy what we are endowed with, particularly when debt inflicted nation-states of the West find it difficult to sustain this rather fa... more
by Jesse RichardsRecessions. Terrorism. Global warming. There's no doubt that countless dire crises consume the world. And yet, positive change is also all around us, under the media's radar. Here is evidence of history's true trend: a convincing picture of declining war, advancing health, equal rights, revolutionary technology, and more. This powerful shift in perspective - not trite "positive thinking" but a realistic look at hidden data - is needed now more than ever. Could the world really be better off than... more
by Renee Beville FlowerA core institution in the human endeavor—the public research university—is in transition. As U.S. public universities adapt to a multi-decadal decline in public funding, they risk losing their essential character as a generator, evaluator, and archivist of ideas and as a wellspring of tomorrow’s intellectual, economic, and political leaders. This book explores the core interdependent and coevolving structures of the research university: its physical domain (buildings, libraries, classrooms), adm... more

by Trey WillisJust about everyone under the age of thirty is an entitled, unhappy, lazy, shallow, egomaniacal monster. At least that’s what they say. They, of course, are pretty much anyone over the age of thirty. They are also pretty accurate in their description of us. This has become something of a problem for our society. The Self-Esteem Movement was the catalyst for the shift in cultural norms and values that has allegedly ruined an entire generation. Everyone was suddenly a special and unique little... more
by Mara Leveritt
“Dark Spell,” the second book in Leveritt’s trilogy about the infamous case of the West Memphis Three, picks up where her best-selling “Devil's Knot” left off. She follows Jason Baldwin, skinny and near blind, into the adult penitentiary he entered at sixteen. Few expect him to last in that violent place, especially in light of his conviction for having murdered children as part of a Satanic ritual.
But Jason endures. He prevails over nights of loneliness and days of hatred and ab... more
