Summary : Written with passion and intelligence, the letters of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in World War II express the raw idealism of anti-fascist soldiers who experienced the war in boot camps, cockpits, and foxholes, but never lost sight of the great global issues at stake. When the United States entered World War II on December 7, 1941, only one group of American soldiers had already confronted the fascist enemy on the battlefield: the U.S. veterans of the Lincoln Brigade, a volunteer army of about 2,800 men and women who had enlisted to defend the Spanish Republic from military rebels during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). They fought on the losing side. After Pearl Harbor, Lincoln Brigade veterans enthusiastically joined the U.S. Army, welcoming this second chance to fight against fascism. However, the Lincoln recruits soon encountered suspicious military leaders who questioned their patriotism and denied them promotions and overseas assignments, foreshadowing the political persecution of the postwar Red Scare. African American veterans who fought in fully integrated units in Spain, faced second-class treatment in America's Jim Crow army. Nevertheless, the Lincolns served with distinction in every theater of the war and won a disproportionate number of medals for courage, dedication, and sacrifice. The 154 letters in this volume, selected from thousands held in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives at NYU’s Tamiment Library, provide a new and unique perspective on aspects of World War II.

Summary : Its World War II, and Second Lieutenant John Stanley McCalla is leading a Filipino gun crew out of Bataan. The Japanese are coming close, and American-Filipino surrender is imminent. McCalla moves his troops to Corregidor, which soon becomes the next target on the Japanese rampage. Forced to flee, McCallas crew heads into the forest and prepares to use guerilla warfare against their enemies. Its possible they could all die out there in the dangerous Philippine forest. In order to mount a particularly rugged hill, the team grasps hands and heads out in the dark of night. McCalla finds himself holding tightly to a small, soft handa hand that belongs to Third Lieutenant Isabel Ramos of the Philippine Nurse Corps. She fled with the soldiers, and now shes part of McCallas command. The lieutenant cant believe it, but despite the horrors surrounding them and the threat of death by Japanese knife, McCalla finds himself falling for the beautiful Isabel. Perhaps it is the danger that holds them so tightly together. McCalla must keep his head clear; the war is certainly not over, and they are fighting a losing battle. Will reinforcements show up in time to save their lives, or will love die tragically on a conquered island?

Summary : The lies of homosexuality dissipate because a life of purity in Christ Jesus decidedly removes the homosexual deception. Each step toward Jesus brings us closer to His image, and we are changed. We emerge free to be exactly whom Father God created us to be. Leaving all secrets with honesty and transparency before God and man, forgiving ourselves and all abusers, we emerge in our true identity with a heterosexual desire. This desire for the opposite sex is as natural as apple pie. Leaving the judgments, the facades, the sins, and all idols, the stark truth remains. Our true identity is found in Jesus Christ alone.

Summary : The letters, journals, and newspaper writings of Henry Perkins Goddard (18421916) of Norwich, Connecticut, provide much firsthand detail about the passions and principles of a divided nation during the Civil War and Reconstruction as witnessed by a scrupulous soldier and scribe eager to capture the bitter realities of his time. The Good Fight That Didnt End includes Goddards accounts of combat in the battles of Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg, his travels across the war-torn South after the war, and his encounters and friendships with well-known historical and literary figures of the era, including Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, George McClellan, Ambrose Burnside, Joseph Hooker, George Armstrong Custer, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Mark Twain. In his friendships with prominent former Confederates and high-ranking officials in both the North and the South, Goddard places himself at a nexus of efforts toward national reconciliation, carefully recording the temper of the changing times.

Summary : Charting the birth and growth of craft beer across the United States, Tom Acitelli offers an epic, story-driven account of one of the most inspiring and surprising American grassroots movements. In 1975, there was a single craft brewery in the United States; today there are more than 2,000. Now this once-fledgling movement has become ubiquitous nationwide—there's even a honey ale brewed at the White House. This book not only tells the stories of the major figures and businesses within the movement, but it also ties in the movement with larger American culinary developments. It also charts the explosion of the mass-market craft beer culture, including magazines, festivals, home brewing, and more. This entertaining and informative history brims with charming, remarkable stories, which together weave a very American business tale of formidable odds and refreshing success.

Summary : An engrossing look at the cultural consequences of technological change and globalization Space radar, infrared photography, carbon dating, DNA analysis, microfilm, digital data bases-we have better technology than ever for studying and preserving the past. And yet the by-products of technology threaten to destroy--in one or two generations--monuments, works of art, and ways of life that have survived thousands of years of hardship and war. This paradox is central to our age. We use the Internet to access and assess infinite amounts of information--but understand less and less of its historical context. Globalization may eventually benefit countries around the world; it will also, almost certainly, lead to the disappearance of hundreds of regional dialects, languages, and whole societies. In The Future of the Past, Alexander Stille takes us on a tour of the past as it exists today and weighs its prospects for tomorrow, from China to Somalia to Washington, D.C. Through incisive portraits of their protagonists, he describes high-tech struggles to save the Great Sphinx and the Ganges; efforts to preserve Latin within the Vatican; the digital glut inside the National Archives, which may have lost more information in the information age than ever before; an oral culture threatened by a "new" technology: writing itself. Wherever it takes him, Stille explores not just the past, but our ideas about the past, how they are changing--and how they will have to change if our past is to have a future.

Summary : Look, a White! returns the problem of whiteness to white people. Prompted by Eric Holder's charge, that as Americans, we are cowards when it comes to discussing the issue of race, noted philosopher George Yancy's essays map out a structure of whiteness. He considers whiteness within the context of racial embodiment, film, pedagogy, colonialism, its "danger," and its position within the work of specific writers. Identifying the embedded and opaque ways white power and privilege operate, Yancy argues that the Black countergaze can function as a "gift" to whites in terms of seeing their own whiteness more effectively. Throughout Look, a White! Yancy pays special attention to the impact of whiteness on individuals, as well as on how the structures of whiteness limit the capacity of social actors to completely untangle the way whiteness operates, thus preventing the erasure of racism in social life.

Summary : Praise for Experiencing the Blessings and Good Fruit of Cancer "Oh, how I searched for a book just like this one when I was diagnosed with breast cancer two and a half years ago. Experiencing the Blessings and Good Fruit of Cancer is an insightful and uplifting look into dealing positively with all aspects of cancer from a patient's perspective. Expect to be blessed and to grow spiritually as you read this incredible book written by a woman with an inspirational attitude like no other." Kristi Evans, breast cancer survivor and lay navigator, Baylor All Saints Medical Center, Fort Worth; Joan Katz Breast Center "Judy has written a beautiful record of her journey through cancer. It carefully describes all that a cancer patient might experience, but is written in such a way as to bring hope and encouragement to not only the patient, but the family and friends who stand with them. There is hope even through the darkest days; and Judy identifies clearly the source of all hope: our Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank you for sharing your journey with us!" Nan Dean, first lady at Travis Ave Baptist Church; Fort Worth, Texas "Dr. Stamey's heartfelt gratitude for the blessings that cancer has bestowed upon her speaks to the resilient character that cancer patients have. Her story is even more remarkable because she truly feels blessed despite losing her own daughter to cancer. It has been my blessing as a radiation oncologist to be touched by individuals such as Dr. Stamey." Dr. Kathryn Shide, MD, radiation oncologist, Texas Oncology; Fort Worth, Texas

Summary : In Journey to the End of Islam, Michael Muhammad Knight — whose work has led to him being hailed as both the Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson of American Islam — wanders through Muslim countries, navigating between conflicting visions of his religion. Visiting holy sites in Pakistan, Syria, Egypt, and Ethiopia, Knight engages both the puritanical Islam promoted by Saudi globalization and the heretical strands of popular folk Islam: shrines, magic, music, and drugs. The conflict of “global” and “local” Islam speaks to Knight’s own experience approaching the Islamic world as a uniquely American Muslim with his own sources: the modern mythologies of the Nation of Islam and Five Percenters, as well as the arguments of Progressive Muslim thinkers for feminism and reform. Knight’s travels conclude at Islam’s spiritual center, the holy city of Mecca, where he performs the hajj required of every Muslim. During the rites of pilgrimage, he watches as all variations of Islam converge in one place, under the supervision of Saudi Arabia’s religious police. What results is a struggle to separate the spiritual from the political, Knight searching for a personal relationship to Islam in the context of how it's defined by the external world.
