Reilly of the White House

by Michael F. Reilly

A fascinating memoir by Michael Reilly about his years as the head of the White House Secret Service detail entrusted with keeping President Franklin D. Roosevelt safe during World War II. Reilly gives the inside scoop on how it was done, from borrowing Al Capone's confiscated armored car from the Treasury to move FDR about, to innovating the idea of a secret elevator inside a C-54 transport plane so the disabled President could safely move about the world without being discovered. Facing problems as ordinary as finding a way to burn confidential military dispatches in the White House furnaces without fragments drifting out of the chimneys (Reilly borrowed popcorn baskets from the kitchens), to the exotic (how do you convince the King of Saudi Arabia to come to a secret meeting with the President when the King insists he must bring along his tents, his rugs, all his relatives and his personal flock of sheep? Easy -- transport the King, his entire entourage and the sheep on the fantail of a United States destroyer), Reilly found a way to meet the extraordinary demands of keeping a war-time president safe at home and abroad.

Reimagining Greek Tragedy on the American Stage

by Helene P. Foley

This book explores the emergence of Greek tragedy on the American stage from the nineteenth century to the present. Despite the gap separating the world of classical Greece from our own, Greek tragedy has provided a fertile source for some of the most innovative American theater. Helene P. Foley shows how plays like Oedipus Rex and Medea have resonated deeply with contemporary concerns and controversies--over war, slavery, race, the status of women, religion, identity, and immigration. Although Greek tragedy was often initially embraced for its melodramatic possibilities, by the twentieth century it became a vehicle not only for major developments in the history of American theater and dance, but also for exploring critical tensions in American cultural and political life. Drawing on a wide range of sources--archival, video, interviews, and reviews--Reimagining Greek Tragedy on the American Stage provides the most comprehensive treatment of the subject available.

Reinforcement Learning: An Introduction

by Richard S. Sutton Andrew G. Barto

Reinforcement learning, one of the most active research areas in artificial intelligence, is a computational approach to learning whereby an agent tries to maximize the total amount of reward it receives when interacting with a complex, uncertain environment. In Reinforcement Learning, Richard Sutton and Andrew Barto provide a clear and simple account of the key ideas and algorithms of reinforcement learning. Their discussion ranges from the history of the field's intellectual foundations to the most recent developments and applications. The only necessary mathematical background is familiarity with elementary concepts of probability. The book is divided into three parts. Part I defines the reinforcement learning problem in terms of Markov decision processes. Part II provides basic solution methods: dynamic programming, Monte Carlo methods, and temporal-difference learning. Part III presents a unified view of the solution methods and incorporates artificial neural networks, eligibility traces, and planning; the two final chapters present case studies and consider the future of reinforcement learning.

Reinhold Niebuhr and His Circle of Influence

by Daniel F. Rice

Reinhold Niebuhr, the prominent American theologian, was one of the few religious figures who had a significant impact on the broader society outside the theological community in the United States during the twentieth century. Niebuhr's influence was most pronounced among those associated with historical studies and politics. This book presents Niebuhr in dialogue with seven individuals who each had a major influence on American life: the theologian Paul Tillich, philosopher/educator John Dewey, socialist Norman Thomas, historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr, international political theorist Hans Morganthau, diplomat George Kennan and Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter. Through a detailed examination of Niebuhr's interactions with these figures, Daniel F. Rice's study offers a survey of mid-twentieth-century theology, political thought and culture.
