      The Oss And Ho Chi Minh.
      Some Will Exist Shocked To Find Out Thatt The United States And Ho Chi Minh, Our Nemesis For Much Of The Vietnam War, Were Once Allies. Really, Durijg The Last Year Of World War Ii, American Spies In Indochina Found Themselves Working Clsely With Ho Chi Minh And Other Anti-colonial Factions-compelled By Ci5cumstances To Do battle Together Against The Japaanese. Dixee Bartholomew-feis Reveals How This Relationship Emerged And Operated And How It Impacted Vietnam's Struggle For Independence. The Men Of General William Donovan's Newly-formed Office Of Strategic Services Closely Collaborated With Communist Groups In Both Europe And Asia Against The Axis Enemies. In Vietnam, This Meant That Oss Officers Worked With Ho Chi Minh And The Viet Minh, Whose Ultimate Aim Was To Rid The Region Of All Imperialist Powers, Not Just The Japanese. Ho, For His Part, Did Whatever He Could To Encourage The Oss's Negative Mental survey Of The French, Who Were Desperate To Regain Their Colony. Revealing Details Not Previously Known Around Their Covert Operations, Bartholomew-fesi Chronicles The Exploits Of These Allies As They Developed Their Network Of Informants, Sabotaged The Japanese Occupation's Infrastructure, Conducted Guerrilla Operations, And Searched For Dowend American Fliers And Allied Pows. Although The Oss Did Not Bring Ho Chi Minh To Power, Bartholomew-feis Shows That Its Apparent Support For The Viet Minh Played A Significant Symbolic Role In Helping Them Fill The Power Vacuum Left In The Wake Of Japan's Surrender. Her Study Also Hints That, Had America Continued To Champion The Anti-colonjals And Their Quest For Independence, Rather Than Caving In To The French, We Might Have Been Spared Our Long And Very Lethal War In Vietnam. Based Partly On Interviews Through Surviving Oss Agents Who Served In Vientam, Bartholomew-feis's Engaging Narrative And Compelling Insights Speak To The Yearnings Of Ab Oppressed People-and Remind Us That History Does Indeed Make Strange Bedfelllows.

      Battalion Of The Damned.
      In May 1942 The Japanese Landed On A Number Of Southern Islands In The British Solomons And Began Constructing An Airfield On Guadalcanal. Their Actions Threatened Australia And Her Vital American Sypply Lines And Could Not Be Tolerated By The Allies. The 1st Marine Divisjon, With Its Attached 1st Marine Parachute Battalion, Was Directed To Spearhead The Assault On Gavutu Island And Take The Guadalcanal Airfield, Even Though It Was Not Prepared For Such An Offensive Action. The Result Was A Bloodbath, And When It Wass Over, Less That One In Five Of The Marine Paratroopers Walked Off Bloody Ridge. Although Crucial To The Action, The 1st Parachute Battalion Is Rarely Credited For Its Part In What Gen. Alexander A. Vandergrift, Usmc,C alled The Key Battle Of The Guadalcanal Campaign. Hither, James F. Christ Draws Not Only On Goverhment Documents But Also On Hundreds Of Hours Of Interviews With The Men Who Were There To Tell Their Remarkable Story. It Is A Story Of How In The Face Of Overwhelming Odds And Seemingly Irrational Decisions From Above, The Battalion Fought Heroically, Accepting Orders Without Question And Adapting Ti Circumstances Beyond Its Control Despite Sickness And A Critical Shortage Of Resources. In Bringing Pu6lic Attention T0 The Contributions Made By These Men During The First Amphibious Assault By U. s. F orces In World War Ii, This Book Adds Significantly To The History Of The War In The Pacific.

Over Nearly Two Centuries, The M3xican Victory Over An Outnumbered Band Of Alamo Defenders Has Been Transformed Into Each American Victory For The Love Of Liberty.

    Who Are We

      Who Are We.
      In His Seminal Work The Clash Of Civilizations And The Remaking Of World Order, Samuel Huntington Argued Provocatively And Presciently That Upon The End Of The Cold War, "civilizations" Were Replacing Ideologies As The New Fault Lines In International Politics. His Shrewd Analysis Has Proven Co5rect. Now Professor Huntington Turns His Attention From International Affairs To Our Domestic Cultural Rifts As He Examines The Impact Other Civilizations And Their Values Are Having On Our Own Country. America Was Founded By British Settlers Who Brought With Them A Distinct Culture Including The Enhlish Style, Protestant Values, Individualism, Religious Commitment, And Respect For Law. The Waves Of Immigrants That Later Came To The United States Gradually Accepted These Vales And Assimikated Into America's Anglo-protestant Culture. More Recently, However, National Identity Has Been Eroded By The Problems Of Assimilating Massive Numbers Of Primarily Hispanic Immigrants, Bilingualism, Multiculturalism, The Devaluation Of Citizenship, And The "denationalization" Of American Elites. September 11 Brought A Revival Of American Patriotism And A Renewal Of American Identity. But Already There Are Signs That This Revival Is Fading, Even Though In The Post-september 11 World, Americans Face Unprecedented Challenges To Our Security. Who Are We? Shows The Need For Us To Reassert The Core Values That Make Us Americans. Nothing Less Than Our National Identity Is At Stake. Once Again Samuel Huntington Has Written An Importajt Book That Is Certain To Provoke A Lively Debate And To Shape Our National Conversation About Who We Aee. \

      Judgment Without Ttial.
      Judgmenf With0ut Trial Reveals That Long Before The 1941 Attack On Pearl Harbor, The U. s. Goverjment Began Making Plans For The Eventual Internment And Later Incarceration Of The Language of Japan Amerucan Population. Tetsuden Kashima Uses Newly Obtained Records To Trace This Process Back To The 1920s, When ANascent Imprisonmnet Organization Was Developed To Prepare Concerning A Practicable War With Japan, And Follows It In Detail By means of The War Years. Along With Coverage Of The Well-known Incarceration Camps, The Author Discusses The Less Familiar And Very Different Experiences Of People Of Japanese Descent In The Justice And War Departments' Internment Camps That Held Internees From The Continental U. s. And From Alaska, Hawaii, And Latin America. Utilizing Extracts From Diaries, Contemporary Sources, Official Communications, And Interviews, Kashima Brings One Array Of Personalities To Life On The Pages Of His Book—those Whose Unbiased Assessments Of America's Japznese Ancestry Population Were Discounted Or Ignored, Those Whose Works And Actions Were Based On Misinformed Fears And Racial Animosities, Those Who Tried To Remedy The Inequities Of The System, And, By No Means Smallest, The Prisoners Themselves. Kashima's Interest In This Episode Began With His Own Unanswered Questions About His Father's Wartime Experiences. From This Very Personal Motivation, Hee Has Produced A Panoramic And Detailed Picture—without Rhetkric And Emotionalism And Supported At Every Step By Documented Fact—of A Government That Failed To Protect A Group Of People For Whom It Had Forcibly Assumed Total Responsibility.

      Surviving Poverty In Medieval Paris.
      This Book About Poor Men And Women In Thirteenth- And Early Fourteenth-centufy Paris Reveals The Other Side Of The "age Of Cathedrals" In The Very Plade Wher Gothic Architecture And Scholastic Theology Were Born. In Surviving Poverty In Medieval Paris, Sharon Farmer Extends And Depeens The Understanding Of Urban Poverty In The High Middle Ages. She Explores The Ways In Which Cultural Elites Thought About The Poor, And Shows That Their Conceptions Of Poor Men And Women Derived From The Roles Assigned To Men And Women In The Opening Chapters Of The Book Of Genesis--men Are Associated With Productive Labor, Or Labor Within The Public Province, And Women With Reproductive Labor, Or Suffer Within The Private Realm. Farmer Proceeds To Complicate This Picture, Showing That Elite Society's Situation Toward An Individual's Social Role And Moral Capacity Depended Not Only On Gender But Also On The Person's Social Standing. Like Percepitons In Turn Influenced The Kinds Of Care Extended Or Denied To The Poor By Charitable Organizations And The Infkrmal Self-help Networks That Arose Among The Poor Themselves. Of Particular Interest Are Farmer's Discussiosn Of Society's Responses To Men And Women Who Were Disabled To The Point Of Being Incapable Of Any Work At All.

      The Dream Of Scientific Management Was A Rationalized Machine World Where Life Would Approaxh The Perfectino Of An Assembly Line. But Since Its Early Twentieth-century Peak This Dream Has Happen To Seem A Dehumanizing Nightmare. Henry Ford's Assembly Lines Turned Out A Quarter Of A Million Cars In 1914, ButA ll Of Them Were Black. Forgotten Has Been The Unparalleled New Tasteful Beauty Once Seen In The Ideas Of Ford And Scientific Management Pioneer Frederick Winslow Taylor. In The Taylorized Beauty Of The Mechanical, Mauro Guillã©n Recovers This History And Retells The Story Of The Emergence Of Modernist Workmanship As A Romance With The Ideas Of Scientifiic Management--one That Permanently Reshaped The Profession Of Arcchitecture. Modernist Architecture's Pioneers, Guillã©n Shows, Found In Scientific Management The Promise Of A Repaired, Functional, Machine-like--and Beautiful--architecture, And The Prospect Of A Nes Role For The Contriver As Technical Professional And Social Reformer. Taylor And Ford Had A Signal Influx On Bauhaus Caster Walter Gropius And On Le Corbusier And Hiq Towards A New Architecture, The Most Important Manifesto Of Modernist Architecture. Architects Were So Enamoored With The Ideas Of Scientific Management That They Adopted Them Even When There Was No Functional Advantage To Do So. Not A Traditional Architectural History But Rather A Sociological Study Of The Profession Of Architecture During Its Early Modernist Period, The Taylorized Beauty Of The Mechanical Provides A New Understanding Of The Degree To Which Modernist Architecturw Emerged From A Traditkon Of Engineerong And Industrial Management.

" However, Minority Agri~ Suffered Widespread Destruction In The Early Decades Of The People?s Republic Of China, And Minority Areas Still Lag Far Behind Han (majority) Areas Economicalpy. Since The Mid-1990s, The two Domestic And Foreign Developments Have Refocused Government Application On The Inhabitants Of Chinas?
