The Ultimate Guide to the Gettysburg Address

David Hirsch & Dan Van Haften

The Ultimate Guide to the Gettysburg Address by David Hirsch & Dan Van HaftenAbraham Lincoln's November 19, 1863, Gettysburg Address is generally recognized as one of the greatest leadership speeches ever written. The Ultimate Guide to the Gettysburg Address explains the 272-word speech more thoroughly than any book previously published. With the aid of colorized step-by-step diagrams, the authors deconstruct the speech into its basic elements and demonstrate how the scientific method is basic to the structure of the Gettysburg Address. Lincoln's fascination with geometry is well documented. Authors David Hirsch and Dan Van Haften, however, are the first to discover...

Manliness and Masculinities in Nineteenth-Century Britain: Essays on Gender, Family and Empire

John Tosh

Manliness and Masculinities in Nineteenth-Century Britain: Essays on Gender, Family and Empire by John Tosh

In the space of barely fifteen years, the history of masculinity has become an important dimension of social and cultural history. John Tosh has been in the forefront of the field since the beginning, having written A Man's Place: Masculinity and the Middle-Class Home in Victorian England (1999), and co-edited Manful Assertions: Masculinities in Britainsince 1800 (1991). Here he brings together nine key articles which he has written over the past ten years.

The Counts of Laval: Culture, Patronage and Religion in Fifteenth- and Sixteenth-Century France

Malcolm Walsby

The Counts of Laval: Culture, Patronage and Religion in Fifteenth- and Sixteenth-Century France by Malcolm WalsbyThe Lavals were one of the most important families in late medieval France, rising to a position of unsurpassed eminence by the mid sixteenth century. Yet, at the very point where they reached this position of unrivalled importance, all was put at risk by the dual challenges of dynastic failure and the Reformation. The vagaries of dynastic failure threatened their hard won success and these problems were compounded by the decision of crucial members of the family to support Protestantism in the middle of the century. By the end of the sixteenth century the fortunes of the family were in ruins...

The Chessboard and the Web: Strategies of Connection in a Networked World

Anne-Marie Slaughter

The Chessboard and the Web: Strategies of Connection in a Networked World by Anne-Marie SlaughterFrom a renowned foreign-policy expert, a new paradigm for strategy in the twenty-first century

In 1961, Thomas Schelling's The Strategy of Conflict used game theory to radically reenvision the U.S.-Soviet relationship and establish the basis of international relations for the rest of the Cold War. Now, Anne-Marie Slaughter-one of Foreign Policy's Top 100 Global Thinkers from 2009 to 2012, and the first woman to serve as director of the State Department Office of Policy Planning-applies network theory to develop a new set of strategies for the post-Cold War world. While chessboard-style competitive...

Michel Leiris

Fibrils: The Rules of the Game, Volume 3 by Michel LeirisA major publishing event: the third volume of Michel Leiris's renowned autobiography, now available in English for the first time in a brilliant translation by Lydia Davis

A beloved and versatile author and ethnographer, French intellectual Michel Leiris is often ranked in the company of Proust, Gide, Sartre, and Camus, yet his work remains largely unfamiliar to English-language readers. This brilliant translation of Fibrils, the third volume of his monumental autobiographical project The Rules of the Game, invites us to discover why Lévi-Strauss proclaimed him "incontestably one of the greatest...

Mail Men: The Unauthorized Story of the Daily Mail - The Paper that Divided and Conquered Britain

Adrian Addison

Mail Men: The Unauthorized Story of the Daily Mail - The Paper that Divided and Conquered Britain by Adrian Addison

Perhaps because of the power and fear that the Daily Mail commands, this is the very first book to provide an unauthorized account of the newspaper with more global readers than any other. With a gripping personality-led narrative, informed by well-placed sources, Mail Men investigates the secret behind the Mail's extraordinary longevity and commercial success, from its first edition on 4 May 1896, to its global MailOnline website today. But, it also examines the controversies that have beset the paper - from its owner's flirtation with fascism in the 1930s to its fractious relationship with...

Ambassadors of Realpolitik: Sweden, the CSCE, and the Cold War

Aryo Makko

Ambassadors of Realpolitik: Sweden, the CSCE, and the Cold War by Aryo Makko During the Cold War, Sweden actively cultivated a reputation as the "conscience of the world," working to build bridges between East and West and embracing a nominal commitment to international solidarity. This groundbreaking study explores the tension between realism and idealism in Swedish diplomacy during a key episode in Cold War history: the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, culminating in the 1975 Helsinki Accords. Through careful analysis of new evidence, it offers a compelling counternarrative of this period, showing that Sweden strategically ignored human rights violations...

The Nuclear Crisis: The Arms Race, Cold War Anxiety, and the German Peace Movement of the 1980s

Christoph Becker-Schaum

The Nuclear Crisis: The Arms Race, Cold War Anxiety, and the German Peace Movement of the 1980s by Christoph Becker-Schaum In 1983, more than one million Germans joined together to protest NATO's deployment of nuclear missiles in Europe. International media overflowed with images of marches, rallies, and human chains as protesters blockaded depots and agitated for disarmament. Though they failed to halt the deployment, the episode was a decisive one for German society, revealing deep divisions in the nation's political culture while continuing to mobilize activists. This volume provides a comprehensive reference work on the "Euromissiles" crisis as experienced by its various protagonists, analyzing NATO's diplomatic...
