Andrew Jackson, his intimate circle of friends, and his tumultuous times are at the heart of this remarkable book about the man who rose from nothing to create the modern presidency. Beloved and hated, venerated and reviled, Andrew Jackson was an orphan who fought his way to the pinnacle of power, bending the nation to his will in the cause of democracy. Jackson’s election in 1828 ushered in a new and lasting era in which the people, not distant elites, were the guiding force in American politics. Democracy made its stand in the Jackson years, and he gave voice to the hopes and the fears of a restless, changing nation facing challenging times at home and threats abroad. To tell the saga of Jackson’s presidency, acclaimed author Jon Meacham goes inside the Jackson White House. Drawing on newly discovered family letters and papers, he details the human drama–the family, the women, and the inner circle of advisers–that shaped Jackson’s private world through years of storm and . . .

The establishment of the People's Republic of China (PRC) in 1949 and the subsequent conclusion of the Sino-­Soviet Alliance Treaty destroyed the old balance of power in East Asia and introduced new forces into the international system. These developments had important implications for Great Britain and the United States, both of which possessed significant interests in the region. Drawing on previously classified British and American documents and private papers, Qiang Zhai compares the respective policies toward the recognition of China and that country's representation in the United Nations; China's entry into the Korean War; the Geneva Conference of 1954; the Quemoy-­Matsu crises of 1954-­55 and 1958; and Chinese threats to Taiwan and Tibet. He carefully analyzes the objective of dividing the Sino-­Soviet alliance as a goal of Anglo-­American policies and uses recently available Chinese Communist materials-­including inner-­party documents, diaries, memoirs, and biographies by and . . .

A 1960s Bronx tomboy learns how to survive her brutal but humorous Italian family and all the rest that life throws her. The harder you hit the pavement, the higher you fly.

This vivid memoir speaks the intense truth of a Bronx tomboy whose 1960s girlhood was marked by her father’s lullabies laced with his dissociative memories of combat in World War II. At four years old, Annie Rachele Lanzillotto bounced her Spaldeen on the stoop and watched the boys play stickball in the street; inside, she hid silver teaspoons behind the heat pipes to tap calls for help while her father beat her mother. At eighteen, on the edge of ambitious freedom, her studies at Brown University were halted by the growth of a massive tumor inside her chest. Thus began a wild, truth-­seeking journey for survival, fueled by the lessons of lasagna vows, and Spaldeen ascensions. From the stoops of the Bronx to cross-­dressing on the streets of Egypt, from the cancer ward at Memorial Sloan-­Kettering to New York . . .

The Lion of Judah in the New World: Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia and the Shaping of Americans' Attitudes toward Africa tells the story of a dynamic ruler who influenced the perception of an entire continent. Documenting the Emperor's state visits to North America, the book explores U.­S. foreign policy towards Ethiopia and Africa over two decades. At the same time, it seeks to understand why Haile Selassie enjoyed such celebrity in the United States and how he became so important in determining U.­S. attitudes toward Africa.­The book includes a brief biography of the Emperor and also explores the geography and long, colorful history of Ethiopia. The tensions and contradictions that marked Haile Selassie's life are highlighted in significant episodes that underscore his astute use of public relations and personal diplomacy. His leadership of postcolonial Africa during the Cold War is examined, as is his ultimate rejection by the United States in 1973 that marked the end of the . . .

At a time when the African-­American and Mexican-­American peoples were demanding their share in the American economic and political life, the U.­S. government’s criminal and racist response to their deep-­rooted and long-­lasting grievances consisted, among other things, in creating a “direct [deadly] conduit from the barrios and ghettoes” to the battlefields of Vietnam. The conservative American governing upper-­class managed to shape the Selective Service law so as to stifle these despised ethnic minorities, who dared to overtly ask for their individuals’ and peoples’ rights, by sending a disproportionately large number of their draft-­age men to die in the jungles of Vietnam. By doing so, the U.­S. government displaced the violent class and racial conflict into the battlefields of Southeast Asia. Indeed, while African Americans and Chicanos succeeded to show the grave shortcomings of the U.­S. system of government, the Vietnam War was used by the U.­S. supremacist ruling upper-­class to . . .

MY STORY is a completely true retro but relevant memoir that reads like a novel and travels from simple origins––picking and selling wild weed––to secret banking centers in the UK and life on the lam. You can still see the listing on Amazon.­com today. It received great reviews, but without mega marketing dollars, and after a few near-­miss appearances on major talk shows, it never made it to the top. Now, in the wake of legalized marijuana in Washington State, where I reside, I am revising the read for all of you in states or states of mind wanting and willing to see an end to America’s expensive, wasteful war on pot. In an ever-­changing world, where billions have been artfully herded onto social media to voluntarily give Big Brother every grain of their personal data, it is doubtful the journey in this tale could be reenacted today. I believe that most baby boomers and young hipsters (whether they smoke weed or not) will enjoy this adventure. I started selling marijuana back in . . .

Author:

Dwight Eisenhower had a measurable impact on the foreign policy decisions of his Democratic successors during the 1960s due to his reputation as a military and foreign policy expert as well as his continued popularity when and after he left office. Eisenhower sought to influence his successors’ policies for a number of reasons, including his underrated partisanship, his desire to protect the reputation of his administration, and his real concerns about the ability of his successors to successfully counter the communist challenge to American interests. Despite his steadily declining health, Eisenhower played both a public and behind-­the-­scenes role in shaping American foreign policy during the 1960s that had long-­term consequences for the country.

This book traces the interactions between Eisenhower and his two successors from the pre-­inaugural meetings with John F. Kennedy, their direct contacts on Cuba, the use of intermediaries such as John McCone and General Andrew . . .
