Book DescriptionLeon Cooper was a young WWII US Navy Officer who was in a number of battles. The other conflict was between Cooper and his ship's Captain, a former enlisted man who had been awarded a battlefield commission. Captain Boda resented "gentlemen" officers like Cooper, commissioned after only 90 days' training. Besides, Cooper's standup nature riled Boda to the extent that he resolved to have him killed. Boda's sociopathic behavior, including his reckless commands, caused the death of many of Cooper's shipmates. Cooper was unsuccessful in reporting Boda to the Naval High Command, resulting in even more dire straits in his relations with Boda. Civilian Cooper promised his dying wife he would stop his neurotic quest for revenge. In a bizarre turn of events, Boda is punished, allowing Cooper to keep his promise to his wife. It is a riveting tale about the abuse of power, madness, murder,revenge, love and redemption.

Patricia J. Williams

Open House : Of Family, Friends, Food, Piano Lessons, and the Search for a Room of My Own

Book Description A warm and seductive meditation on the personal and political from a renowned columnist and "one of the great theorists of race and law" (Henry Louis Gates, Jr.). With her trademark wit and insight, Patricia Williams relates stories from the many facets of her life--as a lawyer, scholar, writer, African-American, descendant of slaves, mother, and single, fifty-something woman--always aware of the ironies inherent in situations where her many identities don't conform to societal expectations. The Open House of Williams's imagination takes us on a funny, often provocative, and entertaining journey which includes Oprah, Williams's Aunt Mary who passed as white, her Best White Friend, and tips on how to eat a watermelon without fear of racial judgment.

Half the Way Home : A Memoir of Father and Son

Book DescriptionFrom the author of the best-selling King Leopold's Ghost, this haunting and deeply honest memoir tells of Adam Hochschild's conflicted relationship with his father, the head of a multinational mining corporation. The author lyrically evokes his privileged childhood on an Adirondack estate, a colorful uncle who was a pioneer aviator and fighter ace, and his first explorations of the larger world he encountered as he came of age in the tumultuous 1960s. But above all this is a story of a father and his only son and of the unexpected peace finally made between them.

Frank Schaeffer

Faith of Our Sons: A Father's Wartime Diary

Book DescriptionIn 1998, novelist Frank Schaeffer?s eighteen-year-old son John joined the Marines straight out of prep school. Their ensuing journey, recounted in the bestselling Keeping Faith: A Father-Son Story About Love and the United States Marine Corps, struck a fervent chord amongst the many Americans with a family member in the military. In Faith of Our Sons, Frank Schaeffer picks up his family?s ongoing story as Corporal John Schaeffer is deployed to the Middle East on the day Gulf War II begins. Schaeffer?s moving and timely account of the universal experience of losing a child? either temporarily or permanently?to war and his attendant emotions (from pride to panic to rage and back again) is punctuated throughout by the voices of the many others in Frank?s situation, thousands of parents and children, who continue to pour their hearts out to the Schaeffers in countless letters since the publication of Keeping Faith?from those waiting...

Gerhard G. Hennes

The Barbed Wire: Pow In The U.s.a.

Book DescriptionA young soldier captured during World War II is sent to a prisoner of war camp in a small town, where he stays until the German surrender. Not an unfamiliar story. . . except the soldier is German, and the POW camp is in Crossville, Tennessee. In his powerful true story, Gerhard Hennes shares his adventures as a POW in the United States and openly reveals the personal hopes, fears, joys, and sorrows of a young man growing disillusioned with Hitler's Germany. Rich with tales of escape, interrogation by high ranking Allied officers, travel on the Queen Mary (converted for troop transport), and day-to-day life as a prisoner of war, The Barbed Wire is both a first-hand account of this near-forgotten chapter in U.S. history and the memoir of a German family surviving during World War II.
