by Wilhelm Grimm

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. The collection is commonly known in English as Grimm's Fairy Tales. The work of the Brothers Grimm influenced other collectors, both inspiring them to collect tales and leading them to similarly believe, in a spirit of romantic nationalism, that the fairy tales of a country were particularly representative of it, to the neglect of cross-cultural influence. Among those influenced were ...

Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.   Los Angeles rose to significance in the first half of the twentieth century by way of its complex relationship to three rivers: the Los Angeles, the Owens, and the Colorado.

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 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....

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...

All the Presidents' Memories: How they Reconstruct the Past, Manage the Present and Shape the Future; Volume I

by Henry Roth

The memories described in this book reflect not only how eleven American Presidents remembered what happened to them in their youth, but also a kind of psychological shorthand of their beliefs, attitudes, cognitive biases and foibles. A negative memory may have provided guidance in situations the President viewed as dangerous, whereas a positive memory may have provided guidance in situations viewed as promising. By examining the early memories of the Presidents, it is possible to discover how, for example: Abraham Lincoln's amusing memory of a boyhood caper provided an unusual perspective on his character and his lasting appeal as a great storyteller;Ulysses S. Grant’s memory of a business transaction revealed a hidden vulnerability; Teddy Roosevelt's memory of a fantastic childhood adv...
