Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian Society--Where We've Been, How We Got Here, and Where We Need to Go

by John Horvat

In times of crisis, we are forced to reexamine our ways and ponder our future. It is in this framework that we need to consider our present economic plight and the charting of our path forward.In his penetrating analysis of contemporary society, author John Horvat focuses on the present crisis with great insight and clarity. He claims modern economy has become cold, impersonal, and out of balance. Gone are the human elements of honor and trust so essential to our daily lives. Society has discarded the natural restraining influence of the human institutions and values that should temper our economic activities.Return to Order is a clarion call that invites us to reconnect with those institutions and values by applying the timeless principles of an organic Christian order. Horvat presents a ...

The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself

by Josiah Henson

Josiah Henson (June 15, 1789 – May 5, 1883) was an author, abolitionist, and minister. Born into slavery in Charles County, Maryland, he escaped to Upper Canada (now Ontario) in 1830, and founded a settlement and laborer's school for other fugitive slaves at Dawn, near Dresden in Kent County. Henson's autobiography, The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself (1849), is widely believed to have inspired the character of the fugitive slave, George Harris, in Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852)....

Novels, Readers, and Reviewers: Responses to Fiction in Antebellum America

by Nina Baym

This book describes and characterizes responses of American readers to fiction in the generation before the Civil War. It is based on close examination of the reviews of all novels—both American and European—that appeared in major American periodicals during the years 1840–1860, a period in which magazines, novels, and novel reviews all proliferated. Nina Baym makes uses of the reviews to gain information about the formal, aesthetic, and moral expectations of reviewers. Her major conclusion is that the accepted view about the American novel before the Civil War—the view that the atmosphere in America was hostile to fiction—is a myth. There is compelling evidence, she shows, for the existence of a veritable novel industry and, concomitantly, a vast audience for fiction in the 1840...

Woodrow Wilson Warmonger: A Brief Analysis of How America was Deceived Into World War 1

by King, M

Though not nearly as glorified as the Second World War which followed two decades later; America’s entry into World War I is generally regarded as a noble cause. We needed to fight in order to “make the world safe for democracy”, or so the goof-ball narrative goes. Mainly for that reason, Woodrow Wilson is ranked as one of the “Top Ten” Presidents by the court historians of American Academia.
But is Woodrow Wilson truly worthy of such respect? Was America’s entry into World War I, at a price of 120,000 dead “doughboys”, really a just and necessary cause to be celebrated?
Woodrow Wilson Warmonger will address these questions in the form of a line-by-line, fully illustrated rebuttal to Wilson’s pre-fight speech delivered to Congress, and published, in full, in ...

The Chinese Question and the Eureka Solution: 1870-1885

by Scott Zagoria

The City of Eureka had gained undesired notoriety following the massacre of Wiyot women and children on Indian Island in 1860. Twenty years later the city council engineered the expulsion of the Chinese residents who lived adjacent to the city's Old Town district. In this case, their methods were regarded by many western cities as viable and consultants from Eureka were invited to various locations to expound upon the principles of the 'Eureka Method'.

The principal 'desirable' features included the avoidance of loss of life; reduction of commercial competition; and the legalized theft of Chinese property without any potential retribution.

These events occurred subsequent to the murder of a local politician, David Kendall, who may likely have been the repres...

The Kennedys: Tales of the Dynasty

by Jeffrey Lant

Most Americans will remember where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news of the death of President John F. Kennedy. When the nation mourned. Another occasion when people mourned the Kennedys was the day of the tragic death of John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr., his wife, and sister in law. Here is where my part came in as I gave that announcement through the news. All the people in the studio paused for a moment of prayer and silent reflection, done as each man confronts his own mortality. And we all were shown yet again that one can never take tomorrow for granted. There can only be a hope about what it will bring, and what it will mean for all of us.I knew then that I would someday write a book about the Kennedys, and that this book would have maximum integrity, valuable i...
