180,000 years have passed The Ark has returned with others from outside our galaxy. All the members of the conspiracy to save the Progeny and Furries are making bets on what they will find. Did the Progeny and Furries on the planets they seeded find the Box? If so, what did they do with it? Have any of them gone into space? Did any of them meet? If they did, what happened? What they do find are three things: surprises, galactic war, and eventually a journal entitled “Stories from the Tree”. The journal does not answer all their questions, but for each of the seeded planets, including Research 4, there is a story recounting the events surrounding the finding of the Box. Reading through the papers he found in the barn, the author was surprised to discover how significant the finding of the Box was on some planets and how insignificant it was on others. In all cases, however, drama surrounded the finding of the Box. Each story, in addition, gave those on the Ark a snapshot of the culture that had arisen on each of the planets during their absence.

The fates of both Heaven and Earth clash in this story of love, jealousy, and friendship. In Legacy of Heaven, author Clifton H.

This remarkable work is a comprehensive historiographical and bibliographical survey of the most important scholarly and printed materials about the naval and maritime history of England and Great Britain from the earliest times to 1815. More than 4,000 popular, standard and official histories, important articles in journals and periodicals, anthologies, conference, symposium and seminar papers, guides, documents and doctoral theses are covered so that the emphasis is the broadest possible. But the work is far, far more than a listing. The works are all evaluated, assessed and analysed and then integrated into an historical narrative that makes the book a hugely useful reference work for student, scholar, and enthusiast alike. It is divided into twenty-one chapters which cover resource centres, significant naval writers, pre-eminent and general histories, the chronological periods from Julius Caesar through the Vikings, Tudors and Stuarts to Nelson and Bligh, major naval personalities, warships, piracy, strategy and tactics, exploration, discovery and navigation, archaeology and even naval fiction. Quite simply, no-one with an interest and enthusiasm for naval history can afford to be without this book at their side.

"Limerick is one of the most engaging historians writing today." --Richard White The "settling" of the American West has been perceived throughout the world as a series of quaint, violent, and romantic adventures. But in fact, Patricia Nelson Limerick argues, the West has a history grounded primarily in economic reality; in hardheaded questions of profit, loss, competition, and consolidation. Here she interprets the stories and the characters in a new way: the trappers, traders, Indians, farmers, oilmen, cowboys, and sheriffs of the Old West "meant business" in more ways than one, and their descendents mean business today.

The United States had never lost a war—that is, until 1975, when it was forced to flee Saigon in humiliation after losing to what Lyndon Johnson called a "raggedy-ass little fourth-rate country." The legacy of this first defeat has haunted every president since, especially on the decision of whether to put "boots on the ground" and commit troops to war. In Haunting Legacy, the father-daughter journalist team of Marvin Kalb and Deborah Kalb presents a compelling, accessible, and hugely important history of presidential decisionmaking on one crucial issue: in light of the Vietnam debacle, under what circumstances should the United States go to war? The sobering lesson of Vietnam is that the United States is not invincible—it can lose a war—and thus it must be more discriminating about the use of American power. Every president has faced the ghosts of Vietnam in his own way, though each has been wary of being sucked into another unpopular war. Ford (during the Mayaguez crisis) and both Bushes (Persian Gulf, Iraq, Afghanistan) deployed massive force, as if to say, "Vietnam, be damned." On the other hand, Carter, Clinton, and Reagan (to the surprise of many) acted with extreme caution, mindful of the Vietnam experience. Obama has also wrestled with the Vietnam legacy, using doses of American firepower in Libya while still engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan. The authors spent five years interviewing hundreds of officials from every post war administration and conducting extensive research in presidential libraries and archives, and they've produced insight and information never before published. Equal parts taut history, revealing biography, and cautionary tale, Haunting Legacy is must reading for anyone trying to understand the power of the past to influence war-and-peace decisions of the present, and of the future.

Legacy of the Lash is a compelling social and cultural history of the Brazilian navy in the decades preceding and immediately following the 1888 abolition of slavery in Brazil. Focusing on non-elite, mostly black enlisted men and the oppressive labor regimes under which they struggled, the book is an examination of the four-day Revolta da Chibata (Revolt of the Lash) of November 1910, during which nearly half of Rio de Janeiro’s enlisted men rebelled against the use of corporal punishment in the navy. These men seized four new, powerful warships, turned their guns on Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s capital city, and held its population hostage until the government abolished the use of the lash as a means of military discipline. Although the revolt succeeded, the men involved paid dearly for their actions. This event provides a clear lens through which to examine racial identity, violence, masculinity, citizenship, modernity, and the construction of the Brazilian nation.

This classic and controversial biography of Scotland’s National Bard offers an unvarnished chronicle of the 18th century poet’s life. First published in 1930 to an unprecedented storm of protest, Catherine Carswell’s The Life of Robert Burns remains the standard work on its subject. Widely revered as Scotland’s greatest poet, Burns’s devotees were so upset by its contents that Carswell famously received a bullet in the mail, with instructions for its use. Carswell deliberately shakes the image of Burns as a romantic hero, exposing the sexual transgressions, drinking bouts and waywardness that other biographies chose to overlook. But Carswell’s real achievement is to bring alive the personality of a great man: passionate, hard-living, generous, melancholic, morbid and, above all, a brilliant and inspired artist. “Catherine Carswell’s The Life of Robert Burns is still, apart from Burns’ own account, the best.”—Alasdair Gray, The Observer, UK “It is not only an outlandishly good book, but one which raises questions about the nature of Scottish culture and cultural change.”—Sunday Times, UK “This is a book which makes you feel better for having read it. I only wish a few contemporary biographers wrote as well as Catherine Carswell did.”—Allan Massie, Literary Review, UK

There is hardly a statement of power and authority in British history as blunt as the so-called "Armada Portrait." The unforgettable painting depicting Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603) commemorates the most famous conflict of her reign--the great sea battle of 1588. It was then that the English fleet successfully defeated the invading Spanish Armada, which had been sent to overthrow Elizabeth. The portrait is arguably the most recognizable depiction of the Tudor queen. Still, it is also a complex, multi-layered representation of the iconography of Elizabeth I, as the "Empresse of the world" and the "Virgin Queen." Each of the three surviving versions of the portrait includes symbolism that illustrates Elizabeth's victory. The painting, as an outstanding historical document, summarizes the hopes and aspirations of the state, and Elizabeth as its head, at a watershed moment of history. In The Armada Portrait, Christine Riding takes the reader on a journey through the painting's history rendered possible thanks to the discoveries made during the most recent conservation work. The illustrated guide to the impressive "Armada Portrait" gives an overview of the context, creation, and significance of the portrait, alongside an evaluation of Elizabeth's legacy. Not leaving any topics untouched, The Armada Portrait reveals how the painting has inspired and informed countless portrayals of Elizabeth I in film, theater, and television.
