The Last Stand for Liberty Book Excerpt:

As with all great stories, this is a tale of good versus evil, love and sacrifice. Men of courage and men with none caught up in the fury of terrible events. Cowards and heroes, good men and bad, all bound together in the wild thunder of their times. John Ray Author had been a man of action and adventure. A horrific accident confronted him with great challenges and the need to make a new life for himself. He became the world’s foremost expert on what he called the precataclysmic age. Other researchers were beginning to follow his lead. With prestigious degrees in archeology, ancient history, and the physical sciences, he was a modern Renaissance man. John was a passionate champion of the Constitution of the United States and its guarantee of personal freedom and liberty. It was late in his middle years when the dreams began. Dreams of physical prowess no longer his. Dreams of incredible adventure so real he remembered the wind blowing on his face, pine-scented forest, and song from a world only dreamed of. The visions continued, waxing more vivid with each passing night. The large, heavy crate arrived from England without return address or documentation. The contents, a large beautiful, ornamented rectangular box constructed of rare woods, fine carvings, dominated by a white ivory cross. Day by day, the ornamentation on the box and even its physical size changed. John felt himself rising once again to the clarion call of adventure.

US Narratives of Nuclear Terrorism Since 9 11 Book Excerpt:

This study examines the US fiction and related films which makes a series of interventions in the cultural debate over the threat of nuclear terrorism. It traces the beginnings of this anxiety from the 1970s, which increased during the 1990s after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The traumatic events of 9/11 became a major reference point for this fiction, which expressed the fear that of a second and worse 9/11. The study examines narratives of conspiracies which are detected and forestalled, and of others which lead to the worst of all outcomes – nuclear detonations, sometimes delivered by suitcase nukes. In some of these narratives the very fate of the nation hangs in the balance in the face of nuclear apocalypse. The discussion considers cases of attacks by electromagnetic pulse (EMP), cyberterrorism and even bioterrorism. Some of the authors examined are present or former politicians, members of the CIA, and former president, Bill Clinton.

Nevada Yesterdays Book Excerpt:

For 18 years, Las Vegans have enjoyed small helpings of their own rich history, served up by public radio station KNPR. Hearing well-told tales of characters with names like "Whiskey Pete," and the comic-opera romance between a famous female evangelist and a boyfriend called "Whataman," many a listener has wished for a transcript. This book fulfills that wish, presenting more than 100 selected mostly by the program's original author, historian Frank Wright. Wright mined the pits and pockets of local lore for nuggets little-known to the public, misunderstood by most, or merely enough fun to be worth telling once more.

Contemporaries appreciated his achievements more that posterity, one obituarist writing that 'his name will be connected with our history'.

Las Vegas A Desert Paradise Book Excerpt:

“PROLOGUE THE SEARCH FOR GOOD WATER On November 7, 1829, a New Mexican trader named Antonio Armijo led a 60-man party on the first leg of what became a historic deviation from the Great Spanish Trail route to Los Angeles. That deviation resulted in the discovery of Las Vegas. By Christmas Day, Armijo’s caravan had crossed southern Utah and moved into the northwest corner of Arizona. The caravan camped near what is now Littlefield — a sleepy hamlet about 100 miles northeast of present Las Vegas. Armijo dispatched a reconnaissance party to look for a possible shortcut west, and to look for water. A member of the party was a young Mexican scout named Rafael Rivera. He decided to break away from the main party and head due west alone over unexplored desert.” Excerpt From: Ralph J. Roske. “Las Vegas: A Desert Paradise.” iBooks.

Building Hoover Dam Book Excerpt:

Andrew J. Dunar and Dennis McBride skillfully interweave eyewitness accounts of the building of Hoover Dam. These stories create the richest existing portrait of the building of Hoover Dam and its tremendous effect on the lives of those involved in its creation: the gritty, sometimes grisly realities of living in cardboard boxes and tents during several of the hottest Southern Nevada summers on record; the fearsome carbon monoxide deaths of tunnel builders who, it was claimed, had died of "pneumonia"; the uproarious life of nearby Las Vegas versus the tightly controlled existence of the workers in the built-overnight confines of Boulder City; and of course the astounding accomplishment of building the Dam itself and completing the task not only early but under budget!

The American Counter Revolution in Favor of Liberty Book Excerpt:

This book presents the case that the origins of American liberty should not be sought in the constitutional-reformist feats of its “statesmen” during the 1780s, but rather in the political and social resistance to their efforts. There were two revolutions occurring in the late 18th century America: the modern European revolution “in favour of government,” pursuing national unity, “energetic” government and centralization of power (what scholars usually dub “American founding”); and a conservative, reactionary counter-revolution “in favour of liberty,” defending local rights and liberal individualism against the encroaching political authority. This is a book about this liberal counter-revolution and its ideological, political and cultural sources and central protagonists. The central analytical argument of the book is that America before the Revolution was a stateless, spontaneous political order that evolved culturally, politically and economically in isolation from the modern European trends of state-building and centralization of power. The book argues, then, that a better model for understanding America is a “decoupled modernization” hypothesis, in which social modernity is divested from the politics of modern state and tied with the pre-modern social institutions.

"Stephen Coonts delivers another high-powered, politically-charged thriller that is not to be missed."— The Real Book Spy "[A] headline-inspired thriller with a conservative slant."—Publishers Weekly After one of the most contentious and divisive elections in American history, the new president is finally settling into the West Wing. But when his chief of staff discovers evidence that voting machines in key counties in swing states were tampered with, the whole administration is in danger of unraveling. Did someone steal the election? Are America's enemies involved? Were the tampered-with machines actually rigged to swing the election the other way—and if so and the plot failed, what is the conspirators' backup plan? Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini race to solve the mystery of a potentially rigged election before Americans' full faith and credit in our democracy, sovereignty, and rule of law become completely undone.

This Bloodless Liberty Book Excerpt:

Government is totally out of control... Is there hope for America's future? Darkness falls over America. As ancient Rome, our Republic rots from within. Government corruption leads to citizen despair. It's our right, even our citizen duty to enforce the Constitution - but how? Secession, petitions, demonstrations, nullification, and anarchy are proven failures. At this point, voting is futile, also; the rare statesman has no chance against the corrupt supermajority in Congress. What can we do? This Bloodless Liberty presents an eye-opening glimpse at America's predator and parasite class including careers you never imagined are feeding the corruption. Debunking 10 lies that government uses to transform its sovereigns into serfs, AmericaAgain! founder David Zuniga shows how you can leave politics and join history's first neural network for self-government. We have lawful power to enforce our Constitution, if we will only have the wisdom to do so. The Internet offers liberty today as the printing press did 575 years ago. Two million children no longer attend schools yet are more familiar with civics and history than are most adults. Millions have lawfully stopped filing tax returns thus are no longer financing a crime cartel. The Tea Party movement has caused millions to see that both political parties are corrupt. If the Tea Party movement is today's Paul Revere, AmericaAgain! is Madison on a motorcycle. We The People can seize this historic opportunity to stop today's syndicate of politicians, financiers, bureaucrats, military-corporate moguls, and the massive parasite sector. Indeed there is hope. If we exercise courage and repentance, our best days may be ahead. If we fear God and not man, we can be AmericaAgain! www.MyAmericaAgain.org
