Содержание:
THIS is the history of a complex of emotions - the passion for wings - and the impact that it had on Western culture during the decade between 1908 and 1918. Strange as it may seem to us today, weary veterans of crowded commercial airliners and depressing airports, the invention of the airplane was at first perceived by many as an aesthetic event with far-reaching implications for the new century's artistic and moral sensibility. Long dreamt about, enshrined in fable and myth, the miracle of flight, once achieved, opened vistas of further conquests over Nature that excited people's imagination and appeared to guarantee the coming of a New Age. The irony is that in comparison with other technologies, such as electricity, the telephone, the automobile, the cinema, or radio, the airplane had little or no immediate or direct impact on the way that most people lived their lives; yet its invention nonetheless inspired an extraordinary outpouring of feeling and gave rise to Utopian hopes and...

Remarkable Plants of Texas: Uncommon Accounts of Our Common Natives (Corrie Herring Hooks Series)

With some 6,000 species of plants, Texas has extraordinary botanical wealth and diversity. Learning to identify plants is the first step in understanding their vital role in nature, and many field guides have been published for that purpose. But to fully appreciate how Texas's native plants have sustained people and animals from prehistoric times to the present, you need Remarkable Plants of Texas. In this intriguing book, Matt Warnock Turner explores the little-known facts--be they archaeological, historical, material, medicinal, culinary, or cultural--behind our familiar botanical landscape. In sixty-five entries that cover over eighty of our most common native plants from trees, shrubs, and wildflowers to grasses, cacti, vines, and aquatics, he traces our vast array of connections with plants. Turner looks at how people have used plants for food, shelter, medicine, and economic subsistence; how plants have figured in the historical record and in Texas folklore; how plants...
Nothing to Fear: FDR's Inner Circle and the Hundred Days That Created Modern America

Nothing to Fear: FDR's Inner Circle and the Hundred Days That Created Modern America

A revealing account of the critical first days of FDR?s presidency, during the worst moments of the Great Depression, when he and his inner circle launched the New Deal and presided over the birth of modern America Nothing to Fear brings to life a fulcrum moment in American history?the tense, feverish first one hundred days of FDR?s presidency, when he and his inner circle swept away the old order and reinvented the role of the federal government. When FDR took his oath of office in March 1933, thousands of banks had gone under following the Crash of 1929, a quarter of American workers were unemployed, farmers were in open rebellion, and hungry people descended on garbage dumps and fought over scraps of food. Before the Hundred Days, the federal government was limited in scope and ambition; by the end, it had assumed an active responsibility for the welfare of all of its citizens. Adam Cohen offers an illuminating group portrait of the five members of FDR?s inner circle who played the...

A Blue Sea of Blood: Deciphering the Mysterious Fate of the USS Edsall

A Blue Sea of Blood: Deciphering the Mysterious Fate of the USS Edsall

This book is the first to tell the full story of the USS Edsall, a WWI-era destroyer that disappeared on a mission to Java on March 1, 1942. Drawing on exhaustive research, military historian Donald Kehn investigates not only the Edsall’s mysterious final action, but also her wide-ranging pre-war career and the curious uses to which her story was put—first by the pre-war U.S. Navy and then by the Japanese wartime propaganda machine. Redressing six decades of official neglect, his account recovers a significant chapter missing from the history of World War II and tells a long-overdue story of courage and tragic loss.

The Collapse of a Single-Party System

In this book Graeme Gill traces the disintegration of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1985 until the dissolution of the USSR in December 1991. The first book to follow the debates in the party over the implications of Gorbachev's reforms and how the party should respond to them, this study is also an in-depth analysis of the institutional dynamics of a party under pressure, showing how Gorbachev's reforms and the new political forces that grew up in their wake created disunity and fragmentation that ultimately led to the collapse of the most powerful single-party state in history.
