Description : This book offers imaginative biographical essays of prominent political and scientific revolutionaries. Contributors illustrate how supporters of Newtonian mechanistic and materialistic ideologies helped to transform eighteenth-century scientific and early industrial life; explain how nationalistically inspired revolutionaries in the Americas and Europe worked to destroy inequitable institutions and establish viable republics; and reveal how biography can be used as an effective tool for studying the rapidly growing and vibrant field of Atlantic history. These profiles demonstrate the impact of nationalistic, republican, and radical egalitarian doctrines upon nations from three continents. Chapters concerning the American Revolution depict the military achievements of George Washington, the feats of the heroine Molly Pitcher, and the brilliant diplomatic accomplishments of Benjamin Franklin. Essays covering revolutions in Latin America describe the leadership role of Toussant L'Ouverture during the Haitian Revolution; the aspirations of Father Hidalgo during the Mexican Revolution; and sections covering Europe focus on the leadership of Brissot during the 1789 Revolution; the salient status of Adam Czartoryski during the Polish Revolution; and the accomplishments and failures of the Irishman John Mitchell and those of the Hungarian Louis Kossuth during the 1848 Revolutions. An essay about Alexis De Tocqueville suggests the motives behind his denouncement of the radical ideologies and violence that arose during the 1848 French Revolution.

Description : In stories, poems, and essays, Blue Mesa Review Issue 16 explores the relationship between art and the viewer. As Editor Julie Shigekuni notes in her foreword, "While a work of art begins with the intimate bond between artist and subject matter, once the creation is formed--published, sold-- different kind of relationship ensues. Once it becomes the object of speculation for audiences, literature exists both within the world as we know it, and within the world of the story." Issue 16 features fiction by Alison Kinney, Antoine Wilson, and Thomas O'Malley; creative non-fiction by Daniel Chacon, Blas Falconer, and Geoffrey Becker; and poetry by Ellen Wehle, Hadara Bar-Nadav, Gaylord Brewer, Robert Clark, and James Doyle. Hector A. Torres' interview with novelist and poet Demetria Martinez figures as the centerpiece of a volume that, piece by piece, reminds the reader, as central character Celeste in Alison Kinney's mesmerizing story "Sistina" cannot forget, "there will be an end to looking."

Description : The First Family detail by Ronald Kessler tells that eye-opening, uncensored story. Since publication of his New York Times bestselling book In the President's Secret Service, award-winning investigative reporter Ronald Kessler has continued to penetrate the wall of secrecy that surrounds the U.S. Secret Service, breaking the story that Secret Service agents who were to protect President Obama hired prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia and revealing that the Secret Service allowed a third uninvited guest to crash a White House state dinner. Now in this new book, Kessler presents far bigger and more consequential stories about our nation's leaders and the agency sworn to protect them. Kessler widens his scope to include presidential candidates and former presidents after they leave the White House.

Description : "This catalogue is an introduction to the National First Ladies' Library and the study of First Lady history. The National First Ladies' Library consists of the Saxton-McKinley House and the Education and Research Center. Located in Canton, Ohio, it is a National Historic Site. The chapters on First Lady history and how it serves as a window to women's history, presedential and political history, and also social and cultural history, are intended as introductory overviews. While these chapters support the National First Ladies' Library mission that First Lady history has been an important and undervalued element in the study of American history, they provide only brief summaries of several examples in each category. Exploration and new research into the fuller story of each woman and how they may have affected history are part of the broader intent the National First Ladies' Library hopes to prompt"--Back cover.
