The Cold War: A Post-Cold War History (The American History Series)
Ralph B. Levering
Cold war no more
I liked this book. If you are well read in this area, I don't think that the book is for you (especially if you are a vitriolic Howard Zhin fan or an American patriot who thinks we can do no wrong.) It is rather a general overview of the topic and ment for history students although clearly accesible to laymen. What I liked about the book is that Levering does not throw mind numbing statistics, ...

Walt Hansgen: His Life and the History of Post-War American Road Racing
David Bull Publishing
Wal Hansgen: His Life and the ... Road Racing
I highly recommend this book to all with an interset of American road racing, its history and how it has gotten to where it is today. I read the book as one who either spectated or actively competed at many of the race meetings described in the first half of the book. At times I was on the track for events described herein. In the 50's and 60's modern road racing was evolving in the US. ...
The Post-American World (An Unabridged Production)[7-CD Set]

The Post-American World
W. W. Norton & Company
All national candidates for office should read this!
After someone sent on that photo of President Obama carrying this book, along with the screed about it being a book gloating over America's downfall, I checked out the reviews here and decided to order it. I'm frankly glad our President has read this book. It is not about America's downfall at all, it is about how we are going to have to share the stage. For decades to come we should be a ...

POST was a skillful storyteller who always put the enjoyment of his readers first and gave them what the ...
Post Gibran: Anthology of New Arab American Writing (Jusoor (Series), 11/12.)
Writing Arab American Experience into History
Anthologies tend to abide by certain spoken and unspoken rules. From the Greek word, anthologein ("flower gathering"), anthologies tend to gather the greatest hits of a specific genre or theme and often rely on a rather exclusive canon from which to pluck their blooms. Given the increasing economic pressures in the publishing world, anthologies also have tended to opt for commercially safe, ...

Capital, Class and Technology in Contemporary American Culture: Projecting Post-Fordism
Postmodernism and postmodernity have become key terms through which contemporary cultural change is theorized. In this original and stimulating study, Nick Heffernan demonstrates that the postmodern is not only a cultural matter: it bears on the transformations wrought by and within contemporary capitalism itself. To ask the postmodern question, according to Heffernan, is necessarily to inquire into the nature of Western capitalist societies as ...
Contentious Liberties: American Abolitionists in Post-Emancipation Jamaica, 1834-1866 (Race in the Atlantic ...
Gale L. Kenny
University of Georgia Press
The Oberlin College mission to Jamaica, begun in the 1830s, was an ambitious, and ultimately troubled, effort to use the example of emancipation in the British West Indies to advance the domestic agenda of American abolitionists. White Americans hoped to argue that American slaves, once freed, could be absorbed productively into the society that had previously enslaved them, but their ?civilizing mission? did not go as anticipated. Gale L. ...
