In Sleuthing the Alamo, historian James E. Crisp draws back the curtain on years of myth-making to reveal some surprising truths about the Texas Revolution--truths often obscured by both racism and 'political correctness,' as history has been hijacked by combatants in the culture wars of the past two centuries. Beginning with a very personal Prologue recalling both the pride and the prejudices that he encountered in the Texas of his youth, Crisp traces his path to the discovery of documents dist

Religion has become a charged token in a politics of division. In disputes about faith-based social services, public money for religious schools, the Pledge of Allegiance, Ten Commandments monuments, the theory of evolution, and many other topics, angry contestation threatens to displace America's historic commitment to religious freedom. Part of the problem, the authors argue, is that constitutional analysis of religious freedom has been hobbled by the idea of 'a wall of separation' between chu

From one of our leading experts on foreign policy, a full-scale reinterpretation of America's dealings--from its earliest days--with the rest of the world. It is Walter Russell Mead's thesis that the United States, by any standard, has had a more successful foreign policy than any of the other great powers that we have faced--and faced down. Beginning as an isolated string of settlements at the edge of the known world, this country--in two centuries--drove the French and the Spanish out of North

The lives of Kurt Gödel and Alan Turing never crossed physically, but did intellectually: Gödel's incompleteness theorem implies a sort of Platonism, and Turing's mechanical decision theory implies, conversely, hard-nosed materialism. Levin, a mathematician, juxtaposes both lives in her debut novel. She begins with Gödel as a young man in Vienna, his incompleteness theorem destroying the line of inquiry (arguably spearheaded by Wittgenstein, who cameos) that argued math was complete in itself; h

Often compared to Tolkien's Middle-earth or Lewis's Narnia, Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea is a stunning fantasy world that grabs quickly at our hearts, pulling us deeply into its imaginary realms. Three books (A Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, and The Farthest Shore) tell the whole Earthsea cycle--a tale about a reckless, awkward boy named Sparrowhawk who becomes a wizard's apprentice after the wizard reveals Sparrowhawk's true name. The boy comes to realize that his fate may be far more

Pornography is big business, a thriving multi-billion dollar industry so powerful it drives the direction of much media technology. It also makes for complicated politics. Anti-pornography arguments are frequently dismissed as patently anti-sex--and ultimately anti-feminist--silencing at the gate a critical discussion of pornography's relationship to violence against women and even what it means to be a 'real man.'

In The Audacity of Hope, Senator Obama calls for a different brand of politics--a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and alienated by the 'endless clash of armies' we see in congress and on the campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility of spirit at the heart of 'our improbable experiment in democracy.' He explores those forces--from the fear of losing to the perpetual need to raise money to the power of the media--that can stifle even the best-inten

The Metaphysical Club was an informal intellectual gathering of philosophers and academics that met in Cambridge, Mass., for only nine months in 1872. Menand, known for his contributions to The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books, follows the evolution of pragmatism as it emerged from the minds of four of the club's members: Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, William James, Charles Sanders Peirce and John Dewey.

The idea behind the book is that human knowledge and achievement is accelerating at an exponential rate that will soon result in an epochal (singular) moment in history beyond which, well basically, robots take over the world. Even if you don't buy his zealous optimism about technological advances, the book will prompt immediate debate about just exactly what the human race is in for with these advances.
