York: The Shadow Cipher

by Dave Stevenson Laura Ruby

“The pleasures of the novel go far beyond the crackling, breathless plot and the satisfaction of watching the puzzle fall into place. The book is shot through with humor, both laugh-out-loud and subtle.” —New York Times Book ReviewFrom National Book Award finalist and Printz Award winner Laura Ruby comes an epic alternate history series about three kids who try to solve the greatest mystery of the modern world: a puzzle and treasure hunt laid into the very streets and buildings of New York City. It was 1798 when the Morningstarr twins arrived in New York with a vision for a magnificent city: towering skyscrapers, dazzling machines, and winding train lines, all running on technology no one had ever seen before. Fifty-seven years later, the enigmatic architects disappeared, leaving behind for the people of New York the Old York Cipher—a puzzle laid into the shining city they constructed, at the end of which was promised a treasure beyond all imagining. By the present day, however, the puzzle has never been solved, and the greatest mystery of the modern world is little more than a tourist attraction.Tess and Theo Biedermann and their friend Jaime Cruz live in a Morningstarr apartment—until a real estate developer announces that the city has agreed to sell him the five remaining Morningstarr buildings. Their likely destruction means the end of a dream long held by the people of New York. And if Tess, Theo, and Jaime want to save their home, they have to prove that the Old York Cipher is real. Which means they have to solve it.

John Quincy Adams: Diaries 1779-1821

by John Quincy Adams David Waldstreicher

For the 250th anniversary of John Quincy Adams's birth, a landmark new edition of an American masterpiece: the incomparable self-portrait of a man and his times from the Revolution to the coming of the Civil War.The diary of John Quincy Adams is one of the most extraordinary works in American literature. Begun in 1779 at the age of twelve and kept more or less faithfully until his death almost 70 years later, it is both an unrivaled record of historical events and personalities from the nation's founding to the antebellum era and a masterpiece of American self-portraiture, tracing the spiritual, literary,and scientific interests of an exceptionally lively mind. Now, for the 250th anniversary of Adams's birth, Library of America and historian David Waldstreicher present a two-volume reader's edition based for the first time on the original manuscript diaries, restoring personal and revealing passages suppressed in earlier editions.Volume I begins during the American Revolution, with Adams's first entry, as he prepares to embark on a perilous wartime voyage to Europe with his father, diplomat John Adams, and records his early impressions of Franklin and Jefferson and of Paris on the eve of revolution; it details his abbreviated but eventful years of study at Harvard and his emergence into the world of politics in his own right, as American minister to the Netherlands and to Prussia, and then as a U. S. senator from Massachusetts; and it reveals a young man at war with his passions, before finding love with the remarkable Louisa Catherine Johnson. In passages that form a kind of real-world War and Peace, the diary follows the young married couple to St. Petersburg, where as U.S. minister Adams is a witness to Napoleon's invasion of Russia. Its account of the negotiations at Ghent to end the War of 1812, where Adams leads the American delegation, is the perhaps the most detailed and dramatic picture of a diplomatic confrontation ever recorded. Volume 1 concludes with his elevation as Secretary of State under James Monroe, as he takes the fore in a fractious cabinet and emerges as the principal architect of what will become known as the Monroe Doctrine.

John Quincy Adams: Diaries 1821-1848

by John Quincy Adams David Waldstreicher

For the 250th anniversary of John Quincy Adams's birth, a landmark new edition of an American masterpiece: the incomparable self-portrait of a man and his times from the Revolution to the coming of the Civil War.The diary of John Quincy Adams is one of the most extraordinary works in American literature. Begun in 1779 at the age of twelve and kept more or less faithfully until his death almost 70 years later, it is both an unrivaled record of historical events and personalities from the nation's founding to the antebellum era and a masterpiece of American self-portraiture, tracing the spiritual, literary,and scientific interests of an exceptionally lively mind. Now, for the 250th anniversary of Adams's birth, Library of America and historian David Waldstreicher present a two-volume reader's edition based for the first time on the original manuscript diaries, restoring personal and revealing passages suppressed in earlier editions.Volume 2 opens with Adams serving as Secretary of State, amid political maneuverings within and outside James Monroe's cabinet to become his successor, a process that culminates in Adams's election to the presidency by the House of Representatives after the deadlocked four-way contest of 1824. Even as Adams takes the oath of office, rivals Henry Clay, his Secretary of State, John C. Calhoun, his vice president, and an embittered Andrew Jackson, eye the election of 1828. The diary records in candid detail his frustration as his far-sighted agenda for national improvement founders on the rocks of internecine political factionalism, conflict that results in his becoming only the second president, with his father, to fail to secure reelection. After a short-lived retirement, Adams returns to public service as a Congressman from Massachusetts, and for the last seventeen years of his life he leads efforts to resist the extension of slavery and to end the notorious "gag rule" that stifles debate on the issue in Congress. In 1841 he further burnishes his reputation as a scourge of the Slave Power by successfully defending African mutineers of the slave ship Amistad before the Supreme Court. The diary achieves perhaps its greatest force in its prescient anticipation of the Civil War and Emancipation, an "object," as Adams described it during the Missouri Crisis, "vast in its compass, awful in its prospects, sublime and beautiful in its issue."

by Bruce Feirstein Bill O'Reilly

Old School is in session....You have probably heard the term Old School, but what you might not know is that there is a concentrated effort to tear that school down.It’s a values thing. The anti–Old School forces believe the traditional way of looking at life is oppressive. Not inclusive. The Old School way may harbor microaggressions. Therefore, Old School philosophy must be diminished.Those crusading against Old School now have a name: Snowflakes. You may have seen them on cable TV whining about social injustice and income inequality. You may have heard them cheering Bernie Sanders as he suggested the government pay for almost everything. The Snowflake movement is proud and loud, and they don’t like Old School grads.So where are you in all this?Did you get up this morning knowing there are mountains to climb—and deciding how you are going to climb them? Do you show up on time? Do you still bend over to pick up a penny? If so, you’re Old School.Or did you wake up whining about safe spaces and trigger warnings? Do you feel marginalized by your college’s mascot? Do you look for something to get outraged about, every single day, so you can fire off a tweet defending your exquisitely precious sensibilities? Then you’re a Snowflake.So again, are you drifting frozen precipitation? Or do you matriculate at the Old School fountain of wisdom?This book will explain the looming confrontation so even the ladies on The View can understand it. Time to take a stand. Old School or Snowflake. Which will it be?

Phantastica: A Classic Survey on the Use and Abuse of Mind-Altering Plants

by Louis Lewin

Long out of print, this is a landmark study on narcotic and psychedelic substances by a world-renowned pharmacologist and toxicologist • The first book to bring non-judgmental scientific insights to the use of drugs around the world• Provides detailed information on all major drugs of the time, including opium, cocaine, heroin, cannabis, peyote, fly agaric, henbane, datura, alcohol, kava, betel, coffee, tea, cocoa, and tobacco• A book credited with starting an era of ethnobotany that continues to the present dayThe publication of Louis Lewin's Phantastica in 1924 began an era of ethnobotany that is still flourishing today. Until Lewin, books on the use of drugs were purely works of anthropology, concerned with how people used these plants, rather than how the plants produced their famous effects. Lewin, a world-renowned pharmacologist and toxicologist, was fascinated by both, and Phantastica was the first book to bring scientific insights to a survey of the use of drugs around the world. Lewin traveled extensively and acquired an astonishing variety of knowledge, reflected in this book, which provides detailed information on all major drugs of the time, including opium, cocaine, heroin, cannabis, peyote, fly agaric, henbane, datura, alcohol, kava, betel, coffee, tea, cocoa, and, of course, tobacco. For thirty years ethnobotanists have bemoaned the fact that Phantastica has been impossible to find; now this landmark work is once again available.

El relato nacional: Historia de la historia de España

by José Álvarez Junco Gregorio De la Fuente

José Álvarez Junco y Gregorio de la Fuente analizan en este ensayo el proceso de construcción de la idea de España por parte de políticos nacionalistas, historiadores y otras élites culturales. «Es habitual en toda sociedad humana que las narraciones sobre su pasado, más que indignaciones guiadas por un mero interés por el conocimiento, sean ante todo pilares básicos sobre los que se edifica la identidad colectiva. Versan sobre los padres de la patria, sus héroes y mártires, los valores perennes sobre los que se fundamenta la identidad colectiva, todo lo cual escapa a cualquier crítica historiográfica o simplemente racional. Quien intente poner en duda estos relatos heredados a la luz de nuevas evidencias o nuevas técnicas interpretativas corre serios riesgos de ser acusado, pura y simplemente, de antipatriota.» El relato nacional traza la evolución del modo en que, a lo largo del tiempo, se ha idoentendiendo y construyendo la historia de este territorio y grupo humano conocidos hoy como «españoles». Y muestra cómo -desde sus orígenes en el terreno legendario, con referencias hoy inverosímiles a heroicos antecesores, hasta tiempos más recientes- ese relato se ha ido adaptando de acuerdo a las necesidades del momento. Basado en un texto publicado originalmente en Las historias de España. Visiones del pasado y construcción de identidad (Crítica-Marcial Pons, 2013), este libro ha sido reescrito, anotado y completado con dos capítulos inéditos y enormemente significativos sobre las crónicas de Indias. Reseñas a los autores y a sus obras:«Una de las novedades más sólidas e interesantes de los últimos tiempos, un compendio profundo, incisivo y convincente para comprender la "historia de la historia de España".»Rafael Núñez Florencio, El Cultural (sobre Las historias de España) «Álvarez Junco es un historiador queha abordado, y siempre con maestría, algunos fenómenos esenciales de la historia española: el anarquismo, el populismo, el nacionalismo y la relación entre visión del pasado y construcción de identidad.»José Andrés Rojo, Babelia «Este libro es un buen instrumento para conocer en profundidad los antecedentes históricos de muchos de los problemas actuales.»Rogelio López Blanco, El Cultural de El Mundo (sobre Mater dolorosa) «Un espléndido libro sobre el nacimiento del nacionalismo español en el siglo XIX.»Luis Berenguer, El País (sobre Mater dolorosa)

Kristin Lavransdatter

by Brad Leithauser Sigrid Undset Tiina Nunnally

"The finest historical novel our 20th century has yet produced; indeed it dwarfs most of the fiction of any kind that Europe has produced in the last twenty years."-- Contemporary Movements in European Literature, edited by William Rose and J. Isaacs"As a novel it must be ranked with the greatest the world knows today." -- Montreal Star"Sigrid Undset's trilogy embodies more of life, seen understandingly and seriously... than any novel since Dostoievsky's Brothers Karamazov. It is also very probably the noblest work of fiction ever to have been inspired by the Catholic art of life." -- Commonweal"No other novelist, past or present, has bodied forth the medieval world with such richness and fullness of indisputable genius.... One of the finest minds in European literature."-- New York Herald Tribune"This trilogy is the first great story founded upon the normal events of a normal woman's existence. It is as great and as rich, as simple and as profound, as such a story should be."-- Ruth Suckow in the Des Moines Register

Initiatic Eroticism: and Other Occult Writings from La Flèche

by Maria De Naglowska Donald Traxler

The first English translation of articles from Maria de Naglowska’s newspaper, La Flèche • Introduces Naglowska’s advanced occult teachings on the Third Term of the Trinity and the spiritually transformative power of sex • Includes two never-before-published essays by Julius Evola • Contains the complete collection of articles from all 20 issues, from October 1930 to January 1935 From October 1930 to January 1935, Maria de Naglowska--Russian mystic, esoteric high priestess, and self-styled “Satanic Woman” of 1930s Paris--published 20 issues of her newspaper, La Flèche, which she sold on the streets of Montparnasse and by mail-order subscription. Bought by many now famous people, including André Breton and other Surrealists, the newspaper served as an introduction to Naglowska’s revolutionary religious system called the Third Term of the Trinity, which considered the Holy Spirit of Christianity to be feminine and taught the importance of sex for the upliftment of humanity. Available for the first time in English, this complete anthology of articles from all 20 issues of La Flèche includes an introduction and notes by translator Donald Traxler, who contextualizes Naglowska’s life and teachings within the larger occult systems of the time, such as Julius Evola’s Group of Ur. He explains how most of the articles were written by Naglowska herself, often under pseudonyms because of the controversial nature of her ideas. In addition to writings on sacred sexuality and religious philosophy, this collection includes essays on feminism and on other esoteric thinkers, such as René Guénon and Krishnamurti, as well as two never-before-published essays by Julius Evola on the magic of creation, the special power of symbols, and the march of progress and materialism.
