"For some moments distant Vesuvius had beguiled my thoughts from the still more distant mountain of the secret, when suddenly a white girl in a white hood and a long white cloak passed me on the white deck: whereupon I forgot mountains of reality and dreams. She was one of those tall, slim, long-limbed, dryad-sort of girls they are running up nowadays in England and America with much success." Lord Ernest Borrow and Captain Anthony Fenton think they know a secret - a secret that could make them both rich - but they are interrupted on their quest between Naples and Alexandria by Sir Marcus Antonius Lark, by a woman who thinks she is the reincarnation of Cleopatra, an American Heiress, and Mrs. Jones, a mysterious Irish woman with a past. Will they ever find the secret? Or will their adventure lead them to another discovery altogether? Charles Norris Williamson (1859-1920) and Alice Muriel Williamson (1858-1933) were a married couple of writer. Charles was originally from Exeter in the United Kingdom and Alice was from Cleveland, Ohio. Alice moved to the Britain in 1892, working as a correspondant for the Boston Evening. There she met Charles, who was then a renowned magazine editor, and the pair married in 1894. She convinced him to appear as the co-author of many of her novels, although she later said she was their sole author.

In this collection of articles describing the people, places, and folkways of southern Illinois, John W. Allen provides entertaining and informative glimpses into the region’s past. Included here are sketches of the early pioneering days when wolves were literally chased from the door, stories about the many Indian artifacts discovered among the rolling hills and valleys of the area, and articles pertaining to the strategic role the region played during the Civil War.

In his warm and friendly style, Allen reminisces about the self-sufficient and satisfying rural life of a previous generation with its oxcarts, pie suppers, threshing machines, kerosene lamps, and blacksmith shops.

In his latest exploration of the Egyptian malaise, Galal Amin first looks at the events of the months preceding the Revolution of 25 January 2011, pointing out the most important factors behind popular discontent. He then follows the ups and downs (mainly the downs) of the Revolution: the causes of rising hopes and expectations, mingled with successive disappointments, sometimes verging on despair, not least in the case of the presidential elections, when the Egyptian people were invited to choose between a rock and a hard place. This is followed by an outline of a possible brighter future for Egypt, based on a more balanced and faster growing economy, and a more democratic and equitable society, within a truly independent, modern, and secular state. The story of what happened to the 2011 Revolution may be a sad one, but if viewed within the larger context of Egypt's economic and social developments of the last century, on which the author's previous books threw very useful light, it can be regarded as one important step forward toward a much better future.

Prior to the 2002 FIFA World Cup, the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team had won just four World Cup matches in 72 years. They'd been humbled with a last place finish at the 1998 World Cup, scoring just once across three games. Major League Soccer was still in its infancy, and generally struggling. But the 2002 squad managed to beat powerhouse Portugal to advance out of the group stages, toppled Mexico 2-0 in the round of 16, and stood up ably to Germany in a quarterfinal loss that nonetheless had the crowd chanting, "USA! USA!" as the players exited the field with heads held high. Fast forward 15 years, and the popularity of soccer in the United States was booming. Cries of "I believe that we will win!" rang out at every match. With greater resources invested, the U.S. was producing talent of a high enough caliber to compete abroad in England's Premier League, and the national team had Jürgen Klinsmann at the helm, promising an injection of worldliness and European flair to the American game. Yet while the American women's team had made World Cup victories a regular expectation, the men failed to even qualify for the 2018 tournament. What happened to the USMNT? Columbia Business School adjunct professor and acclaimed author of The Real Madrid Way Steven Mandis turns his lens inward to examine what it will take for the U.S. men to achieve lasting success on the international stage and how it differs critically from building a successful club team. This meticulously researched, probing investigation challenges conventional wisdom and speaks to the utmost importance of authenticity when cultivating an organizational identity. If the Italians have their cantenaccio, the Spanish their tiki-taka, the Dutch their "total football," and the Brazilians their ginga, Mandis argues that cultivating a unique "American way" of soccer is not only possible but absolutely essential.

By mid-2017, North American economies are in trouble, world peace seems tenuous, many anxiously await the next move by the White House, and there are whispers of balkanization throughout America. What Happened to Us? is a historical fiction following diverse characters experiencing some of the defining events of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Troy and Harry grow up in Montana post-WWII, become successful businessmen, and battle with conflicting political interests as the US economy changes. Lord Conrad cannot accept the EU bureaucracy and struggles with the realities of WWII’s true beneficiaries. Boyhood friends in Jerusalem, Chaim and Simon, experience division as Britain’s Palestinian Mandate crumbles after WWII and Israel battles to survive. A young Egyptian, Tariq, listens as his father recounts the days of Suez greatness and watches his country suffer in Middle East wars. Tariq meets and falls in love with Carol, an American journalist who grows up in Canada’s oil-rich west and travels the world on assignments that all, somehow, relate to North America’s failure to become self-sufficient in energy. Through interwoven threads that connect several nations, these far-reaching narratives inform our understanding of our current reality and the role we play in our unfolding history. Taking a broad view of international economies and history, What Happened to Us? explores various perspectives on the changing geopolitical landscape, from energy security to Middle East peace, to political leadership, and the changing role of America on the global stage.
