After Adolf Hitler attacked Poland on September 1, 1939, igniting World War II, it fell to President Franklin D. Roosevelt to keep his nation neutral while preparing it for war. When Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor brought that war to America, his strong, steady leadership guided it through all but four months of the most brutal war in the history of the world. Through full-color and black-and-white photos, informative sidebars, and engaging narrative, readers gain insight into Roosevelt’s administration and the people who advised him, as well as the combat and political strategies of the war itself and its legacy.

Carol Shields, die für diesen Roman den Pulitzerpreis erhielt, erzählt raffiniert und lebensnah von einem Frauenleben im 20. Jahrhundert. An einem allzu heißen Nachmittag des Jahres 1905 kommt Daisy Goodwill in einer Sturzgeburt auf die Welt. Die Mutter stirbt, Grund für die lebenslange Trauer ihres verträumten Vaters. Daisy wächst bei der Nachbarin Clarentine und deren Sohn Barker auf, der später Daisys große Liebe werden wird. Doch bis dahin muss sie eine schwierige Jugend und eine unglückliche erste Ehe durchleben. Zufriedenheit erfährt Daisy erst mit Barker und den gemeinsamen Kindern. Im hohen Alter vom Leben gebeutelt, macht Daisy noch eine große Reise, ehe sie in einem Altersheim die Vergänglichkeit erleidet und stirbt. »In ihrem Roman beschreibt Carol Shields auf einfühlsame Weise und mit enormem Sprachvermögen die Geschichte einer einfachen Frau, für die das Leben alles andere als eine Romanze ist.« Berliner Morgenpost

Prisoners of the White House looks at the isolation experienced by presidents of the United States in the White House, a habitat almost guaranteed to keep America's commander in chief far removed from everyday life. The authors look at how this is emerging as one of the most serious dilemmas facing the American presidency. As presidents have become more isolated, the role of the presidential pollster has grown. Ken Walsh has been given exclusive access to the polls and confidential memos received by presidents over the years, and has interviewed presidential pollsters directly to gain their unique perspective. Prisoners of the White House gets inside the bubble and punctures the mythology surrounding the presidency.

Roosevelt (FDR) and his wife, Eleanor. The book also explores how they, and their inner circle, managed crisis after crisis, from the Nazi invasion of Western Europe in May 1940 through FDR's death in April 1945. Their unique husband and wife, president and first lady, partnership was the driving force not only behind US and Allied success, but also in improving US society at home despite the challenges of war. In May of 1940, Hitler launched an attack on Western Europe. At the time, the Roosevelts were busy with the work of pulling a struggling nation forward out of the Great Depression, the worst economic crisis in the history of the US and the world. The Roosevelt Administration made history and redefined the relationship between…

Historians have long understood that the notion of "the cold war" is richly metaphorical, if not paradoxical. The conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union was a war that fell ambiguously short of war, an armed truce that produced considerable bloodshed. Yet scholars in the rapidly expanding field of Cold War studies have seldom paused to consider the conceptual and chronological foundations of the idea of the Cold War itself. In Uncertain Empire, a group of leading scholars takes up the challenge of making sense of the idea of the Cold War and its application to the writing of American history. They interrogate the concept from a wide range of disciplinary vantage points--diplomatic history, the history of science, literary criticism, cultural history, and the history of religion--highlighting the diversity of methods and approaches in contemporary Cold War studies. Animating the volume as a whole is a question about the extent to which the Cold War was an American invention. Uncertain Empire brings debates over national, global, and transnational history into focus and offers students of the Cold War a new framework for considering recent developments in the field.
