Romans and Barbarians

by Derek Williams

From 27 B.C. to A.D. 117, the Roman dreams of boundless empire began to falter. The very size of their conquests made them hard to manage, and the caesars also had to accept the scale and intractability of the problems posed by the barbarians. The period covered by the book is one of great change and the opening of a new era. For the once mighty Romans this was a time when power was passing; for the barbarians it was the late Iron Age: a time of transition when internal stresses and fear of Roman aggression were creating dangerous shifts in the tribal equilibrium.Derek Williams's Romans and Barbarians sees the clash of cultures from the standpoint of four individuals whose curious fate it was to venture or be sent beyond the outer watchtowers of the Roman empire. They bore witness from the grassy steppe of Europe's southeastern corner from across the grump Carpathians, towering beyond the Danube; from the fearsome German forest; and from beyond the Firth of Forth in the wilderness of northernmost Britain. Each portrait reveals different aspects of the Sarmatian, German, and Celtic peoples facing the empire's European frontiers. Together these four viewpoints provide a rich portrait of the classical and Iron Age worlds, mutually uncomprehending yet strangely unable to do without each other. The outcome is a skein of violence, tragedy, misadventure, and courage, offering a preview of the cruel but creative forces from whose fusion modern Europe was eventually to emerge.

I haven't allowed anyone to really look at me in a very long time."Emily," he says, doing whatever he does to turn my name into a sin that seduces rather than destroys me."Shane," I manage, but just barely."Did you say yes to dinner because you didn't want to be alone?"I am not sure where he is going with this, if it's about reading me or if he needs validation that I am here for him, so I give him both. "I like being alone," I say, and on some level, it really is true. "I said yes to dinner because you are the one who asked." My lips curve. "Actually you barely asked. You mostly ordered.""I couldn't let you say no.""I'm actually really glad you didn't.""And yet you say you like being alone?""It's simple and without complication.""Spoken like someone who's lived the opposite side of the coin.""Haven't we all?""Who burned you, Emily?"I blanch but recover with a quick, "Who says anyone burned me?""I see it in your eyes.""Back to my eyes," I say."Yes. Back to your eyes.""Stop looking.""I can't."Those two words sizzle, matching the heat in his eyes, and my throat goes dry. "Then stop asking so many questions."He reaches up, brushing hair behind my ear, his fingers grazing my cheek, and suddenly he is closer, his breath a tease on my cheek, his fingers settling on my jaw. "What if I want to know more about you?""What if I don't want to talk?""Are you suggesting I shut up and kiss you?"Yes, I think. Please. But instead I say, "I don't know. I haven't interviewed you as you have me. I know nothing about you. I want to know if you--"He leans in, and then his lips are on mine, a caress, a tease, that is there and gone, and yet I am rocked to the core, a wave of warmth sliding down my neck and over my breasts. He lingers, his breath fanning my lips, promising another touch I both need and want, as he asks, "You want to know if I what?"Everything. "Nothing."

by Cindy Anstey

Fortunately, Juliana feels the same, and they agree to pretend to fall for each other. Spencer can finally focus, until he is tasked with observing Juliana's traveling companions . . . and Juliana herself.

Back Over There: One American Time-Traveler, 100 Years Since the Great War, 500 Miles of Battle-Scarred French Countryside, and Too Many Trenches, Shells, Legends and Ghosts to Count

by Richard Rubin

In The Last of the Doughboys, Richard Rubin introduced readers to a forgotten generation of Americans: the men and women who fought and won the First World War. Interviewing the war’s last survivors face-to-face, he knew well the importance of being present if you want to get the real story. But he soon came to realize that to get the whole story, he had to go Over There, too. So he did, and discovered that while most Americans regard that war as dead and gone, to the French, who still live among its ruins and memories, it remains very much alive.Years later, with the centennial of the war only magnifying this paradox, Rubin decided to go back Over There to see if he could, at last, resolve it. For months he followed the trail of the American Expeditionary Forces on the Western Front, finding trenches, tunnels, bunkers, century-old graffiti and ubiquitous artifacts. But he also found an abiding fondness for America and Americans, and a colorful corps of local after-hours historians and archeologists who tirelessly explore these sites and preserve the memories they embody while patiently waiting for Americans to return and reclaim their own history and heritage. None of whom seemed to mind that his French needed work.Based on his wildly popular New York Times series, Back Over There is a timely journey, in turns reverent and iconoclastic but always fascinating, through a place where the past and present are never really separated.

Equal Is Unfair

by Yaron Brook Don Watkins

We've all heard that the American Dream is vanishing, and that the cause is rising income inequality. The rich are getting richer by rigging the system in their favor, leaving the rest of us to struggle just to keep our heads above water. To save the American Dream, we're told that we need to fight inequality through tax hikes, wealth redistribution schemes, and a far higher minimum wage.But what if that narrative is wrong? What if the real threat to the American Dream isn't rising income inequality--but an all-out war on success?In Equal is Unfair, a timely and thought-provoking work, Don Watkins and Yaron Brook reveal that almost everything we've been taught about inequality is wrong. You'll discover:* why successful CEOs make so much money--and deserve to* how the minimum wage hurts the very people it claims to help* why middle-class stagnation is a myth* how the little-known history of Sweden reveals the dangers of forced equality* the disturbing philosophy behind Obama's economic agenda.The critics of inequality are right about one thing: the American Dream is under attack. But instead of fighting to make America a place where anyone can achieve success, they are fighting to tear down those who already have. The real key to making America a freer, fairer, more prosperous nation is to protect and celebrate the pursuit of success--not pull down the high fliers in the name of equality.
