Summary Book Review The Eve of Destruction by James T. Patterson:
Download or read book The Eve of Destruction written by James T. Patterson and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2012-11-27 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: At the beginning of 1965, the U.S. seemed on the cusp of a golden age. Although Americans had been shocked by the assassination in 1963 of President Kennedy, they exuded a sense of consensus and optimism that showed no signs of abating. Indeed, political liberalism and interracial civil rights activism made it appear as if 1965 would find America more progressive and unified than it had ever been before. In January 1965, President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed that the country had "no irreconcilable conflicts." Johnson, who was an extraordinarily skillful manager of Congress, succeeded in securing an avalanche of Great Society legislation in 1965, including Medicare, immigration reform, and a powerful Voting Rights Act. But as esteemed historian James T. Patterson reveals in The Eve of Destruction, that sense of harmony dissipated over the course of the year. As Patterson shows, 1965 marked the birth of the tumultuous era we now know as "The Sixties," when American society and culture underwent a major transformation. Turmoil erupted in the American South early in the year, when police attacked civil rights demonstrators in Selma, Alabama. Many black leaders, outraged, began to lose faith in nonviolent and interracial strategies of protest. Meanwhile, the U.S. rushed into a deadly war in Vietnam, inciting rebelliousness at home. On August 11th, five days after Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act, racial violence exploded in the Watts area of Los Angeles. The six days of looting and arson that followed shocked many Americans and cooled their enthusiasm for the president's remaining initiatives. As the national mood darkened, the country became deeply divided. By the end of 1965, a conservative resurgence was beginning to redefine the political scene even as developments in popular music were enlivening the Left. In The Eve of Destruction, Patterson traces the events of this transformative year, showing how they dramatically reshaped the nation and reset the course of American life.
Summary Book Review The Raven Warrior by Alice Borchardt:
Download or read book The Raven Warrior written by Alice Borchardt and published by Random House. This book was released on 2010-05-25 with total page 624 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Born of the Highlands, along shores washed by northern seas, Guinevere has accepted the power offered to her by the Dragon Throne and been crowned Queen. Her first duty must be to her homeland and her people, to protect them from the reviled Saxon raiders. Instinct tells her she must strike first or surrender control of the seas, but her chieftains and warlords refuse to accept that their new queen, barely a woman, can know anything of the art of war and offer her an army of misfits and outcasts. Young and untried, Guinevere knows she cannot - must not - fail. Sailing to confront the hated enemy with only this motley band of ill-equipped fighters at her side, she summons the spirits of the dead. But there is a terrible price to pay for their help - a knowledge that will change her utterly. As Guinevere faces the first great test of her reign, so her childhood companion, Black Leg - the shape-shifting son of her adoptive father - begins his own quest to become a man and warrior worthy of this new queen. In his wanderings, he will endure trials both mental and physical, discover inner strengths and, with the Lady of the Lake, primal passions, each experience more perilous, more terrifying, than the last. And when he and Guinevere are finally reunited, the consequences of both their ordeals will unleash a torrent of anguish and desire. For he is the Raven Warrior, the one who will be called Lancelot... Set during the dark age when history and myth collide, The Raven Warrior continues Alice Borchardt's breathtaking re-imagining of the timeless tale of a king called Arthur and, of course, of his mercurial queen, Guinevere.
Summary Book Review Henry James, Gertrude Stein, and the Biographical Act by Charles Caramello:
Download or read book Henry James, Gertrude Stein, and the Biographical Act written by Charles Caramello and published by Univ of North Carolina Press. This book was released on 2000-11-09 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Focusing on biographical portraiture, Charles Caramello argues that Henry James and Gertrude Stein performed biographical acts in two senses of the phrase: they wrote biography, but as a cover for autobiography. Constructing literary genealogies while creating original literary forms, they used their biographical portraits of precursors and contemporaries to portray themselves as exemplary modern artists. Caramello advances this argument through close readings of four works that explore themes of artistry and influence and that experiment with forms of biographical portraiture: James's early biography of Nathaniel Hawthorne and his much later group biography, William Wetmore Story and His Friends, and Stein's celebrated Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas and her largely forgotten Four in America, which comprises biographies of Ulysses S. Grant, Wilbur Wright, Henry James, and George Washington. The first comparative study of these two great expatriate writers, Henry James, Gertrude Stein, and the Biographical Act addresses questions of art, influence, and literary culture by analyzing important biographical portraits that themselves address the same questions.

Summary Book Review Criminal Law by Joseph G. Cook:
Download or read book Criminal Law written by Joseph G. Cook and published by LexisNexis. This book was released on 2012-07-17 with total page 936 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This casebook offers both theoretical and practical treatment of criminal law, which helps students to understand the underlying principles and to relate them to real-life situations. Criminal Law introduces students to the criminal justice system, raises the question of why and how we punish, and provides a framework for classroom discussion of the relationship between the state and the individual. It covers a broad range of topics including many cutting-edge issues such as efforts by cities to prosecute homeless people for sleeping in public areas, assisted suicide, conspiracy and multiple defendant trials, rape (including date rape and post-penetration rape), attempted murder based on biting / spitting by AIDS patients, "stand your ground" statutes, battered victim syndrome, theft of computer services and information, and white collar crime. Unlike many other casebooks that merely cite the Model Penal Code, Criminal Law discusses various state statutes, helping students to understand how similar crimes are treated in different jurisdictions. In addition, this book does contain numerous references throughout to the Model Penal Code and the various other proposed codes. The extent of editing of cases varies according to the principles being highlighted. Some cases that focus entirely on a particular issue are reproduced in full, while other cases are heavily edited to emphasize the key questions raised. This highly focused approach makes the cases, and the principles they illustrate, easier for students to comprehend. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
