SUMMARY:

As with all great stories, this is a tale of good versus evil, love and sacrifice. Men of courage and men with none caught up in the fury of terrible events. Cowards and heroes, good men and bad, all bound together in the wild thunder of their times. John Ray Author had been a man of action and adventure. A horrific accident confronted him with great challenges and the need to make a new life for himself. He became the world’s foremost expert on what he called the precataclysmic age. Other researchers were beginning to follow his lead. With prestigious degrees in archeology, ancient history, and the physical sciences, he was a modern Renaissance man. John was a passionate champion of the Constitution of the United States and its guarantee of personal freedom and liberty. It was late in his middle years when the dreams began. Dreams of physical prowess no longer his. Dreams of incredible adventure so real he remembered the wind blowing on his face, pine-scented forest, and song from a world only dreamed of. The visions continued, waxing more vivid with each passing night. The large, heavy crate arrived from England without return address or documentation. The contents, a large beautiful, ornamented rectangular box constructed of rare woods, fine carvings, dominated by a white ivory cross. Day by day, the ornamentation on the box and even its physical size changed. John felt himself rising once again to the clarion call of adventure.

In 1781, George Washington's attempt to trap the British under Cornwallis at Yorktown ends catastrophically when the French fleet is destroyed in the Battle of the Capes. The revolution collapses, and the British begin a bloody reign of terror. A group of rebels flees westward and sets up a colony near what is now Chicago. They call it Liberty. The British, looking to finish what they started, send a very large force under Burgoyne to destroy them. Burgoyne is desperate for redemption and the Americans are equally desperate to survive.

SUMMARY:

"An engrossing and tautly written account of a critical chapter in American history." --Los Angeles Times Nathaniel Philbrick, author of In the Hurricane's Eye, Pulitzer Prize finalist Mayflower, and Valiant Ambition, is a historian with a unique ability to bring history to life. The Last Stand is Philbrick's monumental reappraisal of the epochal clash at the Little Bighorn in 1876 that gave birth to the legend of Custer's Last Stand. Bringing a wealth of new information to his subject, as well as his characteristic literary flair, Philbrick details the collision between two American icons- George Armstrong Custer and Sitting Bull-that both parties wished to avoid, and brilliantly explains how the battle that ensued has been shaped and reshaped by national myth.

SUMMARY:

Grafton and Carmellini must prevent a surprise attack far more devastating than Pearl Harbor in this high octane thriller in Stephen Coonts's The Art of War. “When it comes to military fiction, Coonts remains on every fan's A-list.”—Booklist The Chinese dragon is flexing its muscles. As its military begins to prey on neighbors in the South China Sea, attacking fishing vessels and scheming to seize natural resources, America goes on high alert. But a far more ominous danger lurks closer to home: A nuclear weapon has been planted in the harbor at Norfolk, Virginia—site of the biggest naval base on the planet. The target: a secret rendezvous of the Atlantic Fleet aircraft carriers and their battle groups. When the CIA director is assassinated and Jake Grafton is appointed to take his place, Jake gets wind of the conspiracy but has no idea when or where the attack will occur. Meanwhile, a series of assassinations—including an attempt on the life of the President of the United States—shakes the nation and deliberately masks a far more sinister objective. Can Jake and his right hand man, Tommy Carmellini, prevent a catastrophe far more devastating than Pearl Harbor and stop a plot to destroy the U.S. Navy? “Coonts makes us see, smell, hear, taste, and feel battle.”- Cleveland Plain-Dealer “Exciting and Realistic—Coonts's best.”—Admiral Jay L. Johnson (Ret.), former Chief of Naval Operations

The American Counter Revolution In Favor Of Liberty

The American Counter Revolution In Favor Of Liberty

Download

SUMMARY:

This book presents the case that the origins of American liberty should not be sought in the constitutional-reformist feats of its “statesmen” during the 1780s, but rather in the political and social resistance to their efforts. There were two revolutions occurring in the late 18th century America: the modern European revolution “in favour of government,” pursuing national unity, “energetic” government and centralization of power (what scholars usually dub “American founding”); and a conservative, reactionary counter-revolution “in favour of liberty,” defending local rights and liberal individualism against the encroaching political authority. This is a book about this liberal counter-revolution and its ideological, political and cultural sources and central protagonists. The central analytical argument of the book is that America before the Revolution was a stateless, spontaneous political order that evolved culturally, politically and economically in isolation from the modern European trends of state-building and centralization of power. The book argues, then, that a better model for understanding America is a “decoupled modernization” hypothesis, in which social modernity is divested from the politics of modern state and tied with the pre-modern social institutions.
