Queenie, Letters from an Australian Army Nurse, 1915-1917

Pat Richardson

Queenie, Letters from an Australian Army Nurse, 1915-1917 by Pat Richardson

Edith Florence “Queenie” Avenell was twenty-five years old when she enlisted in the Australian Army Nursing Service the day after the Australian and New Zealand forces stormed the beaches of Turkey on that first Anzac Day in 1915. Resigning from her position as matron of the Innisfail Hospital, she set out to do her bit for the war effort by nursing Australian soldiers. The letters she regularly wrote home provide a very personal view of the war and the world of the times through the eyes of a modern, independent young woman.

The book reveals the lives of nurses behind the front lines during...

The Man Who Designed the Future: Norman Bel Geddes and the Invention of Twentieth-Century America

B. Alexandra Szerlip

The Man Who Designed the Future: Norman Bel Geddes and the Invention of Twentieth-Century America by B. Alexandra SzerlipBefore there was Steve Jobs, there was Norman Bel Geddes.

A ninth-grade dropout who found himself at the center of the worlds of industry, advertising, theater, and even gaming, Bel Geddes designed everything from the first all-weather stadium, to Manhattan's most exclusive nightclub, to Futurama, the prescient 1939 exhibit that envisioned how America would look in the not-too-distant 60s.

In The Man Who Designed the Future, B. Alexandra Szerlip reveals precisely how central Bel Geddes was to the history of American innovation. He presided over a moment in which theater became immersive, function...

Ireland's Magdalen Laundries and the Nation's Architecture of Containment

James M. Smith

Ireland's Magdalen Laundries and the Nation's Architecture of Containment by James M. SmithThe Magdalen laundries were workhouses in which many Irish women and girls were effectively imprisoned because they were perceived to be a threat to the moral fiber of society. Mandated by the Irish state beginning in the eighteenth century, they were operated by various orders of the Catholic Church until the last laundry closed in 1996. A few years earlier, in 1993, an order of nuns in Dublin sold part of their Magdalen convent to a real estate developer. The remains of 155 inmates, buried in unmarked graves on the property, were exhumed, cremated, and buried elsewhere in a mass grave. This...

In Our Own Words: A people's commentary on life in the former Soviet Union

Joseph Fjelstad

In Our Own Words: A people's commentary on life in the former Soviet Union by Joseph Fjelstad

The Soviet Union collapse was both sudden and complete. The citizens of the former superpower were caught in a maelstrom of change seldom experienced outside of all out global war. This book captures the experiences of 60 individual citizens of the former Soviet Union for the reader to ponder. The human experience is universal and it is likely that the reader will find echos of some of their own thoughts expressed in these pages.

The following reviews of the first edition give testimony to the need to understand and appreciate the resilience of the human spirit under extreme duress.

Anybody Can Do Anything

Betty Macdonald

With the help of her older sister Mary, Anybody Can Do Anything recounts her failed, and often hilarious, attempts to find work during the Great Depression.

Dissent in the Heartland, Revised and Expanded Edition: The Sixties at Indiana University

Mary Ann Wynkoop

Dissent in the Heartland, Revised and Expanded Edition: The Sixties at Indiana University by Mary Ann WynkoopDuring the 1960s in the heartlands of America-a region of farmland, conservative politics, and traditional family values-students at Indiana University were transformed by their realization that the personal was the political. Taking to the streets, they made their voices heard on issues from local matters, such as dorm curfews and self-governance, to national issues of racism, sexism, and the Vietnam War. In this grassroots view of student activism, Mary Ann Wynkoop documents how students became antiwar protestors, civil rights activists, members of the counterculture, and feminists who shaped...

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

Franklin Benjamin

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin by Franklin Benjamin

Franklin's Autobiography has received widespread praise, both for its historical value as a record of an important early American and for its literary style. It is often considered the first American book to be taken seriously by Europeans as literature.

"He was therefore, feasted and invited to all the court parties. At these he sometimes met the old Duchess of Bourbon, who, being a chess player of about his force, they very generally played together. Happening once to put her king into prize, the Doctor took it. 'Ah,' says she, 'we do not take kings so.' 'We do in America,' said the Doctor."...
