Gods and Generals: A Novel of the Civil War

April 1998
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
Book Review
In a prequel of sorts to his father Michael Shaara's 1974 epic novel The Killer Angels, Jeff Shaara explores the lives of Generals Lee, Hancock, Jackson and Chamberlain as the pivotal Battle of Gettysburg approaches. Shaara captures the disillusionment of both Lee and Hancock early in their careers, Lee's conflict with loyalty, Jackson's overwhelming Christian ethic and Chamberlain's total lack of experience, while illustrating how each compensated for shortcomings and failures when put to the test. The perspectives of the four men, particularly concerning the battles at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, make vivid the realities of war. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Red Rackham's Treasure (Adventures of Tintin Series #10)

Book Review
Concluding the story begun in The Secret of the Unicorn, Red Rackham's Treasure follows Tintin and friends as they search for the pirate booty procured by Captain Haddock's ancestor, Sir Francis Haddock, in the West Indies. They receive some unexpected help in the form of a hard-of-hearing inventor named Professor Calculus, who would go on to become one of the most endearing characters of the series. (Herge admitted that the character was one "whom I never suspected would take on such importance.") It's a lot of fun, with some submarine and diving adventures, humor from the Thompsons, and an unexpected (but satisfying) ending. --David Horiuchi

Inner Space/Outer Space
Edward W. Kolb
0226450325
Apr 1986
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Inner Space/Outer Space brings together much of the exciting work contributing to a new synthesis of modern physics. Particle physicists, concerned with the "inner space" of the atom, are making discoveries that their colleagues in astrophysics, studying outer space, can use to develop and test hypotheses about the events that occurred in the microseconds after the Big Bang and that shaped the universe as we know it today. The papers collected here, from scores of scientists, constitute the proceedings of the first major international conference on research at the interface of particle physics and astrophysics, held in May 1984. The editors have written introductions to each major section that draw out the central themes and elaborate on the primary implications of the papers that follow.

Independent Radicalism in Early Victorian Britain
Michael J. Turner
0275973867
July 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Review
“Thomas Perronet Thompson (1783-1869) is simply a "reformer" to most Victorianists, but Turner puts flesh on his subject and unfolds the career of a remarkable, versatile man....One can only marvel at Thompson's energy, independence of mind, and willingness to challenge privilege and injustice--thus his "independent" radicalism. The book is scholarly, clearly written, and provides a window into early- and mid-Victorian politics. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.”–Choice
“[A]n intelligent and accessible interpretation of political radicalism in nineteenth-century Britain.”–History

Review
“Drawing on interviews with Rockefeller and his associates, as well as vice-presidential papers that Rockefeller made available to him, Turner has written a careful and intelligent study whose documentation is unusually rich for such recent events. ... The Vice President as Policy Maker provides a valuable account of just how formidable the obstacles to [Rockefeller's] influence proved to be.”–American Historical Review

Review
'... a splendid and thought-provoking book. Its implications are deep and wide-ranging.' English Historical Review
'... remains an impressive contribution to the economic history of Victorian and Edwardian Ireland.' Irish Studies Review

Review
"A challenging study that requires a good understanding of quantitative history. Recommended for upper division undergraduates and above." C.W. Wood Jr., Choice

"The issues discussed in this book are central to our understanding of post-Famine Ireland. Turner's findings will be discussed and examined. Ireland's historians owe Turner a debt for this coherent, accessible account, one that forms a starting point for future research and that will, because of its methodological care and reproduction of key statistics, assist those who want...
