Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Nation's financial system has collapsed, inflation is out of control, government offices are closed, police, fire departments and the military no longer exist; food shelves are empty, gasoline stations are closed and burning and mobs are running rampant in the streets. One small group living on a barrier island in Florida organizes for their defense and plans for survival in a lawless nation. Lacking sources of food and water, the group led by Stuart Martin plans a cross country trek to an area of the country where they could possibly find a new America that would provide them with what they need to survive. They establish contact with a community in Montana that needs the military assets and training possessed by the Floridians. The cross country trek by the Floridians in a well defended convoy presents many challenges and risks. In the course of the journey, they are subjected to numerous attacks by various sized groups of armed renegades. In time, having incurred some losses, the Floridians arrive at their new homeland in Montana and then organize politically with their new hosts and in time with their new neighbors to form a viable community comprised of five or more western states. The issues then become the form of governance that will predominate with the new leadership. Most of the survivors of the failed nation have a deep distrust of any form of governance. Their leader, Stuart Martin had similar beliefs initially but over time has become convinced that very few citizens have the ability to decide what is best for them and his strong, firm but fair guidance is essential to their survival. He believes all power to govern should be in his hands. Hovering behind Stuart Martin are a few who seek even greater absolute power, for more selfish reasons, to control the fledgling nation and await the opportune moment to take over the reins. Conflicts exist and only time will tell what form the new America will take when it emerges from the political struggles.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The fourteen essays in this collection were drawn from papers presented at the annual conference of the American Culture Association in April of 2006. The widely ranging topics and diverse points of view are typical of papers showcased by this organization of educators, writers, cultural critics and graduate students. These essays each consider the pedagogical parameters by which the art of the United States is defined and, as we are a nation of many voices, they further represent the multicultural identities of America and its citizens. From traditional art historical analysis to post-modernist deconstruction, the authors represented herein explore paintings, prints, sculpture, and architectural objects, in the context of history, philosophy, aesthetics, and political points of view. The writers themselves represent multidisciplinary viewpoints, from art history to literature to architecture and social work. Their papers reflect current scholarship, speaking from the most up to date of pedagogies, and in voices which are both critical and analytical. They further speak for the American Culture Association whose mission it is to explore "all manifestations of the cultures of the Americas."

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From an author who resigned from the Clinton administration: “Part memoir and part manifesto . . . a beautifully written call to renew the fight against poverty.”?Jonathan Kozol, New York Times bestselling author of Savage Inequalities Peter Edelman has worked as an aide to Robert F. Kennedy, a lawyer, a children’s advocate, and a policymaker. He has devoted his life to the cause of justice and to ending inequality. But in 1996, while serving in the Clinton administration as an expert on welfare policy and children, he found himself in an untenable position. The president signed a new welfare bill that ended a sixty-year federal commitment to poor children, and as justification invoked the words of RFK. For Edelman, Clinton’s twisting of Kennedy’s vision was deeply cynical, so in a rare gesture that sparked front-page headlines, he resigned. The nation, he believed, had been harmed. In this book, he shows that in an age of unprecedented prosperity, Americans have in many respects forsaken their fellow citizens, leaving behind a devastatingly large number of poor and near-poor, many of them children. Edelman shines a bright light on these forgotten Americans. Based in part on a firsthand look at community efforts across the country, he also proposes a bold and practical program for addressing the difficult issues of entrenched poverty, focusing on novel ways of braiding together national and local civic activism, reinvigorating our commitment to children, and building hope in our most shattered communities—creating a vision true to the legacy of Robert F. Kennedy. “Moving and insightful.” —Atlanta Journal-Constitution “I have read a lot of books on inequality, but none offers a more thoughtful vision of poverty and welfare in America . . . compelling.”?William Julius Wilson, author of When Work Disappears

He found his problem common to majority of peer members of his ethnic group compared to other ethnic peer group members' experience. Johnson attributed his failure to the stripping away of the African American culture by the slave masters. He resolved to recover the "Africa" that was missing in him. Johnson traveled to his origin in Africa and embraced originality after ritualistically dancing with his ancestors at the king's palace. His new way of thinking transformed him into a color-blind successful happy American. Johnson came back from Africa, went to Law school and graduated with honors. He married a white lady, and was elected city mayor.

Book excerpt: An ace fighter pilot aims to save a shattered America from Russian invasion in this new Wingman novel from “the best high-action thriller writer out there” (Jon Land). Former US Air Force major Hawk Hunter and his band of patriotic ex-military men have fought tirelessly to reunite their fractured nation after the Russian nuclear sneak attack that put a devastating end to World War III. Now, returning from a space odyssey that began with the diversion of a comet headed for Earth, Hunter finds a 60,000-man Russian army occupying New York City, ready to invade the rest of America. Equally alarming are reports claiming that Hawk’s former girlfriend, Dominique, is living with the head of the Russian secret police in a Manhattan penthouse. Buzzing through the city’s skyscraper canyons in a tiny STOL Highlander and glimpsing the enemy invaders’ massive weaponry for himself, Hawk realizes he’s up against the greatest danger his homeland has ever faced, even with the help of Captain “Bull” Dozer and his team of ex-Marines. But with the woman and the country he loves in dire peril, threatened by a mysterious convoy of Russian superships, the Wingman will apply all his aviation prowess and strategic ingenuity to devise a plan to launch the fiercest, most crucial battle for America yet, no matter the risks. Filled with fast-paced, furious action and a wide range of aircraft and military hardware that will fascinate techno-thriller fans, Battle for America brings back favorite characters from earlier books in the series and delivers a riveting story that reveals new insight on America’s most enigmatic hero: the Wingman.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1987 a young Jewish man, the central figure in this captivating book, leaves Moscow for good with his parents. They celebrate their freedom in opulent Vienna and spend two months in Rome and the coastal resort of Ladispoli. While waiting in Europe for a U.S. refugee visa, the book’s twenty-year-old poet quenches his thirst for sexual and cultural discovery. Through his colorful Austrian and Italian misadventures, he experiences the shock, thrill, and anonymity of encountering Western democracies, running into European roadblocks while shedding Soviet social taboos. As he anticipates entering a new life in America, he movingly describes the baggage that exiles bring with them, from the inescapable family traps and ties to the sweet cargo of memory. An emigration story, Waiting for America explores the rapid expansion of identity at the cusp of a new, American life. Told in a revelatory first-person narrative, Waiting for America is also a vibrant love story in which the romantic main character is torn between Russian and Western women. Filled with poignant humor and reinforced by hope and idealism, the author’s confessional voice carries the reader in the same way one is carried through literary memoirs like Tolstoy’s Childhood, Boyhood, Youth, Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, or Nabokov’s Speak, Memory. Babel, Sebald, and Singer—all transcultural masters of identity writing—are the coordinates that help to locate Waiting for America on the greater map of literature.

In his comprehensive guidebook, "Ideas for America," educator Matthew Fraser shares core principles as well as a fresh perspective on how America can transform its old methodologies, approaches, and thought processes into an innovative society focused on progress, reconciliation, and peace.

In his proposed solutions to the current American situation, Fraser shares such diverse ideas as encouraging greater utilization of vocational programs in high school education; introducing timebanking as a powerful tool for promoting business and community; exploring co-ownership as a new way to afford housing; promoting the study of health and wellness programs at universities; and using our colleges to help transition our country to a healthier, greener economy. Through revolutionary thinking methods, "Ideas for America" offers real solutions to real problems in America while encouraging others to replace complacency with their own creative answers."

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Prize winning author Jeremy Black traces the competition for control of North America from the landing of Spanish troops under Hernn Corts in modern Mexico in 1519 to 1871 when, with the Treaty of Washington and the withdrawal of most British garrisons, Britain accepted American mastery in North America. In this wide-ranging narrative, Black makes clear that the process by which America gained supremacy was far from inevitable. The story Black tells is one of conflict, diplomacy, geopolitics, and politics. The eventual result was the creation of a United States of America that stretched from Atlantic to Pacific and dominated North America. The gradual withdrawal of France and Spain, the British accommodation to the expanding U.S. reality, the impact of the American Civil War, and the subjugation of Native peoples, are all carefully drawn out. Black emphasizes contingency not Manifest Destiny, and reconceptualizes American exceptionalism to take note of the pressures and impact of international competition.
