In Thinking about Congress, Lawrence Dodd reminds us that Congress seemed equally intransigent at times in the past, yet change and rejuvenation came. Reading his classic essays, one sees Congress move from Committee Government in mid-twentieth century to Liberal Democratic reforms in the 1970s to the 1994 Republican Revolution to Party Government today. Dodd crafts a theory of congressional cycles that explains why Congress evolves. Thinking about Congress holds out hope for the future while illuminating both the process and object of inquiry.

The clash between Britain and Ireland--and between Catholics and Protestants within Ireland--is among the oldest and most enduring nationalist, ethnic, and religious conflicts in the modern world, rooted in the colonization of Ireland by English and Scottish Protestants in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.Through fifty-six original sources, many of which have never been reprinted, this volume traces the origins and development of the conflict during the years of the legislative union between Britain and Ireland--years shaped by the rise of, and British and Irish Unionist responses to, Irish nationalism.Dworkin's Introduction provides both a history of the conflict and a discussion of its causes; headnotes and footnotes set each selection in historical, political, and cultural context, and identify those terms and names that may be unfamiliar to modern readers. A map, a glossary, a chronology of events, and a select bibliography are included, as are an index and several contemporary illustrations.
This rugged new translation--the first entirely new English translation in half a century and the only one based on the most recent critical edition of the Guatemalan MS--allows Diaz to recount, in his own battle-weary and often cynical voice, the achievements, stratagems, and frequent cruelty of Hernando Cortes and his men as they set out to overthrow Moctezuma's Aztec kingdom and establish a Spanish empire in the New World.The concise contextual introduction to this volume traces the origins, history, and methods of the Spanish enterprise in the Americas; it also discusses the nature of the conflict between the Spanish and the Aztecs in Mexico, and compares Diaz's version of events to those of other contemporary chroniclers. Editorial glosses summarize omitted portions, and substantial footnotes explain those terms, names, and cultural references in Diaz's text that may be unfamiliar to modern readers. A chronology of the Conquest is included, as are a guide to major figures, a select bibliography, and three maps.
Chatham Roberdeau Wheat has rightly been called the grandest of Civil War heroes. Born a Virginia gentleman, this handsome giant was by turns lawyer, politician, filibusterer, wit, bon vivant, and soldier of fortune. Perhaps the most experienced soldier on either side at the outbreak of the Civil War, Wheat led the "Louisiana Tigers"--notorious as the wildest battalion in either army--in some of the war's bloodiest battles, including Bull Run, the Valley, and the Seven Days. Idolized by his men for his courage and camaraderie, he was adored by women for his dash and gallantry. In this comprehensive biography, originally published in 1957, Charles L. Dufour details Wheat's life and loves--from his turbulent school days to his early and heroic end at Gaines Mill. Based largely on letters and unpublished family documents, Dufour's work--the first in-depth study of Wheat--stands as the most vivid portrait of this fantastic young soldier.

The Grammar of Ornament: A Visual Reference of Form and Colour in Architecture and the Decorative Artsby Owen Jones
The complete and unabridged full-color editionFirst published in 1856, The Grammar of Ornament remains a design classic. Its inspiration came from pioneering British architect and designer Owen Jones (1809-1874), who produced a comprehensive design treatise for the machine age, lavishly illustrated in vivid chromolithographic color. Jones made detailed observations of decorative arts on his travels in Europe, the Middle East, and in his native London, where he studied objects on display at the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations in 1851 and at local museums. His aim was to improve the quality of Western design by changing the habits of Victorian designers, who indiscriminately mixed elements from a wide variety of sources.Jones's resulting study is a comprehensive analysis of styles of ornamental design, presenting key examples ranging from Maori tattoos, Egyptian columns, and Greek borders to Byzantine mosaic, Indian embroidery, and Elizabethan carvings. At once splendidly Victorian and insistently modern, The Grammar of Ornament celebrates objects of beauty from across time periods and continents, and remains an indispensable sourcebook today.
Author Laurel Downing Bill continues to bring Alaska history alive in "Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Four." Following in the fast-paced and entertaining footsteps of the previous three volumes, Volume Four captures the essence of life in Alaska between 1935 and 1960. Its easy-to-read nonfiction short stories and more-than 350 historical photographs highlight major events of World War II, the Cold War era and Alaska's struggle for statehood. <P><P> When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, the military presence in Alaska was woefully inadequate. And within six months, the Japanese bombed Alaska's Dutch Harbor, occupied two islands in the Aleutian Chain and had eyes toward an invasion of America. <P> As the U.S. military began building bases across Alaska, it also organized Alaska's Native people into a territorial guard that became known as the "Eskimo Scouts." These men and women routinely patrolled more than 2,000 miles of coastline and 200,000 square miles of tundra to make sure the enemy did not advance. <P> World War II brought big defense dollars north, which helped bolster Alaska's economy. It also brought a secret Russian mission to Fairbanks, interment of Aleut people in the foreign landscape of Southeast Alaska and a wide proliferation of tuberculosis. <P> During the Cold War era, Alaska saw another increase of money and people into the Last Frontier. This period of its colorful past also generated stories of heroic Alaska Airlines flights for freedom, Alaska Natives' battles against discrimination and the blossoming of Anchorage into a jewel on the tundra. <P> The last section of this action-packed volume features Alaska's 91-year-old struggle for statehood. Tales of tenacity, hope and determination fill these pages. They also showcase many of the movers and shakers of days gone by, Alaska's first elected governor and the discovery of crude oil that tipped the balance toward statehood. <P> Critics and readers alike are saying "Aunt Phil's Trunk" is outstandingly well produced, exceptionally informative and heaps of fun to read.
Aunt Phil's Trunk Volume Five features dozens of short stories and hundreds of historical photographs that share the history of Alaska from 1960 to 1984. This fifth book in the Alaska history series highlights the first 25 years of statehood when the optimistic citizens of the Great Land created a government from scratch in just a few years and dealt with many challenges. Aunt Phil s Trunk Volume Five shares firsthand accounts of survivors who experienced the 1964 Good Friday earthquake and the devastating tsunamis that followed that 9.2 temblor. It also features stories about the discovery of black gold on the North Slope in the late 1960s, and how Alaska s Native people fought for their land and won the largest settlement ever granted Native Americans. That agreement cleared the way for oil companies to build an 800-mile pipeline through some of the most rugged and remote country in the world during the 1970s.
Adventurers, crooks and lawmen flooded into Alaska following the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898. Towns like Nome, Fairbanks and Valdez blossomed on the tundra and soon filled with merchants, madams, miners and more. In this second book of the Aunt Phils Trunk series, readers are taken on a journey of discovery when prospectors stumbled across gold in the Iditarod, men summited the mighty mountain called Denali, and the people of Kodiak survived the largest volcanic eruption in North American history. Readers from ages 9 to 99 will love this collection of stories and more than 300 historical photographs that highlight Alaska s colorful past from 1900 to 1912.
The critically acclaimed "Aunt Phil's Trunk" Alaska history series by Laurel Downing Bill is noted for its easy-to-read short stories and hundreds of historical photographs that complement the entertaining nonfiction writing. Suitable for ages 9 to 99, the first book in the series shares stories from early Alaska up to about 1900. <P><P> Volume 1 kicks off the series by showcasing the arrival of Alaska Natives thousands of years ago. Anthropologists believe the Natives traveled from Asia across the Bering Sea Land Bridge and settled in various parts of Alaska. Stories in this section include those of mighty shaman, mysterious petroglyphs and fierce battles against Russian fur traders, who arrived in the mid-1700s. <P> After Alaska became a possession of the United States in 1867, Americans began streaming into the Last Frontier. Explorers, businessmen, miners and crooks came north and changed Alaska forever. The discovery of gold brought even more people. <P> This book highlights the gold rushes of Juneau-Douglas, Cook Inlet and the famous Klondike Gold Rush of 1898. A photo essay of the various routes the gold-crazed stampeders forged to get to the gold fields is truly amazing. <P> Other stories in this volume include how Catholic nuns mingled with rough-and-tumble adventurers on the banks of Nome, how the last shot of the Civil War boomed in the Bering Sea and how infamous conman Soapy Smith served as an angel of mercy before he became the undisputed king of crime in Skagway. <P> This volume is a treasure trove of short stories about Alaska's colorful past and is filled with close to 350 rare historical photographs!
