    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2008; US$ 16.95

      To most Americans, Mississippi is not a state but a scar, the place where segregation took its ugliest form and struck most savagely at its challengers.  But to many Americans, Mississippi is also home.  And it is this paradox, with all its overtones of history and heartache, that Anthony Walton?whose parents escaped Mississippi for the relative... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 115.00

    The late Victorian period witnessed the remarkable revival of magical practice and belief.

  • The Lie Detectorsby Ken Alder

    Free Press 2007; US$ 27.00

    The story of the lie detector takes us straight into the dark recesses of the American soul. It also leads us on a noir journey through some of the most storied episodes in American history. That is because the device we take for granted as an indicator of guilt or innocence actually tells us more about our beliefs than about our deeds. The machine... more...

  • The Mississippiby Francis Vinton Greene

    Digital Scanning, Inc. 2001; US$ 4.95

    'It is safe to say that three-fourths of those who have professed any knowledge of the campaigns which resulted in the opening of the Mississippi have generally given undue prominence to minor events, and almost wholly ignored the essentially important; indeed, this campaign calls up in most minds a confused jumble of gunboats and batteries, bayous... more...

  • The Battle of Gettysburgby L. P. (Comte de Paris) D'Orleans

    Digital Scanning, Inc. 2000; US$ 4.95

    The battle of Gettysburg was undoubtedly one of the greatest conflicts of modern times, not only from the number of combatants engaged and the desperate nature of the struggle, but because on the now classic heights of Cemetery Ridge, Culp?s Hill, and the Round Tops the future of the American Republic, for weal or for woe, was fought and won on those... more...

  • The Outbreak of Rebellionby John G. Nicolay

    Digital Scanning, Inc. 2001; US$ 4.95

    'His [Nicolay's] story runs from Governor Gist's circular letter to Southern governors under date of October 5th, 1860, to the Battle of Bull Run, July 21st 1861. It is brilliant, well-proportioned, full of interest; written with intense convictions of right, an impatient contempt of opposite opinions, and a disposition not to mince words, but unhesitatingly... more...

  • From Fort Henry to Corinthby M. F. Force

    Digital Scanning, Inc. 2001; US$ 4.95

    'This campaign drove the rebellion once and for all out of Kentucky; it broke the rebel line from Columbus to Bowling Green hopelessly in pieces; it opened the Mississippi from Cairo to Memphis; it contained the first great Union victories; and at Donelson and Island No.10, it received the first surrenders of rebel armies; it cheered and encouraged... more...
