Die Hard

by Alan David

Chet Manning, troubleshooter with the South and West Railroad, never needed to look for trouble.

It just seemed to stroll right up and punch him in the gut.

To Manning, that was a way of life.

The big problem right now was a saloon girl called Glory Harpe - the troubleshooter had killed her man, and Glory was out for revenge.

Roping in two gunslinging sidekicks, she'd got herself a plan to see Manning die agonisingly, bloodily and very, very slowly.

Chet was on his own.

He was facing two cunning thugs and a kill-crazy slut.

For once, the odds seemed too long for comfort...

Will his courage last long enough for him to find and kill his outlawed enemies?

And is he prepare...

Cicada Spring: A Novel

by Christian Galacar

On a warm May evening in the spring of 1979, the people of Heartsridge, Massachusetts, are living the American dream. Families are gathered for barbecues. Kids are playing in front yards. Gardens are being kept. Meanwhile, Kara Price stumbles home through the woods, raped and beaten, her life shattered by a wicked act of violence, perpetrated by one of the town’s most beloved and public figures.

Surrounding Kara is a cast of compelling and nefarious characters—a violent-tempered mayor who can do no wrong in the eyes of the town, a sheriff bound by the rules and plagued by a guilty conscience, a father bent on revenge, a serial killer in the midst of an identity crisis. And at the center of it all there's Kara, who just wants to move on with her life and forget everythin...

The REAL Roosevelts: An Omitted History: What PBS & Ken Burns Didn't Tell You

by M King

In the pantheon of American heroes, few names are more revered than that of 'Roosevelt'. As the decades pass into the century mark, the recent works of "historians" such as Doris Kearns Goodwin and film producer Ken Burns have exalted the Holy Trinity of Roosevelt to demi-god status.

There was Theodore, hero of San Juan Hill, builder of the Panama Canal, scourge of the big bad "Robber Barons", and tireless champion of "the worker" whose manly image is immortalized in the stone of Mount Rushmore.

There was Franklin, the altruistic savior of America who turned against his own class to serve "the common man". FDR, we are told, saved America, and indeed, the world. For that, his own image is immortalized on every American dime.

And finally, there was E...

Chinatown No More: Taiwan Immigrants in Contemporary New York (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)

by Hsiang-Shui Chen

By focusing on the social and cultural life of post-1965 Taiwan immigrants in Queens, New York, this book shifts Chinese American studies from ethnic enclaves to the diverse multiethnic neighborhoods of Flushing and Elmhurst. As Hsiang-shui Chen documents, the political dynamics of these settlements are entirely different from the traditional closed Chinese communities; the immigrants in Queens think of themselves as living in "worldtown," not in a second Chinatown. Drawing on interviews with members of a hundred households, Chen brings out telling aspects of demography, immigration experience, family life, and gender roles, and then turns to vivid, humanistic portraits of three families. Chen also describes the organizational life of the Chinese in Queens with a lively account of the powe...

This is the complete and authoritative edition of the folk and fairy tales of the brothers Grimm, with 212 tales, and including the tale of The Starving Children (which was removed after the 1819 edition).THE FOLK & FAIRY TALES OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM (German: Kinder- und Hausmärchen - Vollstämdige Ausgabe) is a collection of German fairy tales first published in 1812 by the Grimm brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm.

Among those influenced were ...

Oswald's Odyssey: Two Hours in Dallas

by Andrew Culver

This is a comprehensive, in-depth timeline of Lee Harvey Oswald's fateful journey from the Texas School Book Depository to the Texas Theater where he was arrested on November 22nd, 1963.

The chronology uses a wide variety of sources to evaluate what witnesses saw, and when they made their statements. The reader follows Oswald, minute by minute, from 12:00, when he was an anonymous warehouse employee, to 2:00, when he was arrested and his fate was sealed.

The timeline reveals how the Warren Commission, and future researchers, picked and chose evidence to create a scenario that would convict Oswald after his death - without a trial. But this thoroughly researched "micro-history" reveals that the official story about the Kennedy assassination is nothing more than a...

The Presidents: and their motivations for seeking the office

by Charles Henry Vessey

THE PRESIDENTS and Their Motivations for Seeking the Office is a microcosm of American political life viewed through the prism of the American Presidency. Why would anyone solicit an office where upon election, approximately 50% of your constituents oppose or dislike your agenda? Does the allure of power draw the largest egos to the most demanding job in the world? Is it the opportunity to impose their political will on the American people? Does the job represent the possibility to create a more just society or perhaps a utopia on earth? The founders were determined to create a meritocracy rather than the aristocracy that prevailed in Europe. They succeeded in spite of attempts by the temporary occupants of the Presidency to alter the American experience with transitory political theories....
