This is the rural... more...

    Random House Publishing Group 2000; US$ 16.00

    Mark Twain had known many of the great men of the Civil War and the Gilded Age, and esteemed none more highly than Ulysses S. Grant, who was modest, sensitive, generous, honest, and superlatively intelligent. Grant's courage, both moral and physical, was a matter of record. His genius as a general assured his immortality. In 1881, Twain urged Grant... more...

  • Populismusby Karin Priester

    Campus Verlag 2007; US$ 14.00

Karin Priester zeigt, dass der Populismus weit mehr als das ist, nämlich eine spezifische politische Strömung. So setzen sich populistische Bewegungen für den selbstständigen Mittelstand ein und wehren sich gegen politische Bevormundung... more...

  • Yours Till Deathby John Cotton; Lucille Griffith

    University of Alabama Press 2015; US$ 26.95

He enlisted at Pinckneyville, Alabama, on April 1,... more...
