----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine price clipped dustjacket, 285 pages, ---"Vietnam was America's most divisive and unsuccessful foreign war. It was also the first to be televised and the first of the modern era fought without military censorship. From the earliest days of the Kennedy-Johnson escalation right up to the American withdrawal, and even today, the media's role in Vietnam has continued to be intensely controversial. The "Uncensored War" gives a richly detailed account of what Americans read and watched about Vietnam. Hallin draws on the complete body of the New York Times coverage from 1961 to 1965, a sample of hundreds of television reports from 1965-73, including television coverage filmed by the Defense Department in the early years of the war, and interviews with many of the journalists who reported it, to give a powerful critique of the conventional wisdom, both conservative and liberal, about the media and Vietnam. Far from being a consistent adversary of government policy in Vietnam, Hallin shows, the media were closely tied to official perspectives throughout the war, though divisions in the government itself and contradictions in its public relations policies caused every administration, at certain times, to lose its ability to "manage" the news effectively. As for television, it neither showed the "literal horror of war," nor did it play a leading role in the collapse of support: it presented a highly idealized picture of the war in the early years, and shifted toward a more critical view only after public unhappiness and elite divisions over the war were well advanced. The "Uncensored War" is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the Vietnam war or the role of the media in contemporary American politics. ---A groundbreaking study of the media's influence on the Vietnam War ----Overturns the conventional notions about the media's role in the war -Draws directly on a huge body of newspaper and TV coverage"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

Hamilton, took up his duties as Chief of a Quaker Relief out-post in famine ravaged eastern Poland (White Russia). The land had been fought over countless times as the Germans, Russians and Poles clashed on the Eastern Front during World War One. Millions of dwellings had been destroyed, whole villages obliterated, and eight million Russian peasants transported east to an area that quickly became the epicenter of the Great Famine of 1922. Now survivors were returning to claim what little remained of their homes and villages, and it fell to international relief agencies, not the least among them the Quakers, to provide seeds, farm implements, lumber and practical know-how for rebuilding. Hamilton regularly wrote his parents of his trials and triumphs. The letters were preserved and they provide close documentation and striking local color for this historically significant depiction of Eastern Europe in the wake of the Great War and the Bolshevik Revolution. One hundred photographs taken by the author in the course of his travels in the Soviet Russia complement the text in revealing the human misery and material destruction that characterize 'the aftermath of war,'---", contents include: Foreword; Introduction; Background; White Russia; Hoduciszki Outpost -my first; Work with Timber Columns; Warsaw Unit of Quaker Relief; Life at Hoduciszkil Horodec Outpost; The Dnieper-Bug canal; Beilin -the village that stayed; The City and the Countryside; Smorgonie Outpost; Outpost Closing date Established; Setting Up the Agricultral School and Orphanage at Kolpin; Last Visit to Kolpin; Disbanding the Outposts; To Great Russia and Moscow; The Famine Area - Buzuluk and Samara Province; To Turkestan and the Ukraine, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

------------hardcover, about 6.25 x 9.5 inches, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, 588 pages, b&w illustrations, ---"A gripping new account of one of the most important and exciting periods of British and Irish history: the reign of the first two Stuart kings, from 1567 to the outbreak of civil war in 1642 - and why ultimately all three of their kingdoms were to rise in rebellion against Stuart rule. Both James VI and I and his son Charles I were reforming monarchs, who endeavoured to bolster the authority of the crown and bring the churches in their separate kingdoms into closer harmony with one another. Many of James's initiatives proved controversial - his promotion of the plantation of Ulster, his reintroduction of bishops and ceremonies into the Scottish kirk, and his stormy relationship with his English parliaments over religion and finance - but he just about got by. Charles, despite continuing many of his father's policies in church and state, soon ran into difficulties and provoked all three of his kingdoms to rise in rebellion: first Scotland in 1638, then Ireland in 1641, and finally England in 1642. Was Charles's failure, then, a personal one; was he simply not up to the job? Or was the multiple-kingdom inheritance fundamentally unmanageable, so that it was only a matter of time before things fell apart? Did perhaps the way that James sought to address his problems have the effect of making things more difficult for his son? Tim Harris addresses all these questions and more in this wide-ranging and deeply researched new account, dealing with high politics and low, constitutional and religious conflict, propaganda and public opinion across the three kingdoms - while also paying due attention to the broader European and Atlantic contexts.

How were its physical remains rediscovered and made sense of? How has it been reimagined, in story and song and verse? Sometimes on foot, sometimes in a magnificent, if not entirely reliable, VW camper van, Charlotte Higgins sets out to explore the ancient monuments of Roman Britain. She explores the land that was once Romeís northernmost territory and how it has changed since the years after the empire fell. Under Another Sky invites us to see the British landscape, and British history, in an entirely fresh way: as indelibly marked by how the Romans first imagined and wrote, these strange and exotic islands, perched on the edge of the known world, into existence.

Robert Hood was one of those who perished on this trip. Weakened by starvation, he was shot through the head by a member of the party turned cannibal. A highly sensitive and educated man with a painter's eye for detail, Hood was an astute observer of the political and social ways of the North. The journal reveals his awareness, unusual in his time, of the adverse effects on Native peoples and their environment of the coming of the Europeans. Hood's paintings capture the beauty as well as the harshness of the North. His bird paintings in particular are of special artistic and historical interest."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
