Star-Crossed: A Quantitative Reassessment of the Relative Combat Performance of the Army of Tennessee Compared to the Army of Northern Virginia

by Michael R. Brasher

Everyone KNOWS the Army of Northern Virginia was a "winner" and its sister army, the Army of Tennessee was a "loser," right?In his book, Two Great Rebel Armies: An Essay in Confederate Military History, Richard M. McMurry draws the somewhat controversial conclusion that Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia was not only the better led army, but that the composition of Lee's army indeed made it the better army, when compared with its Western sister, the Army of Tennessee.While few historians would beg to differ with the first conclusion - the likes of Bragg, Polk, Hardee and Hood simply do not compare with the leadership offered by Lee, Jackson and Longstreet - historians have generally not cared to examine the potential for a more fundamental reason for the success of the one army, and the fai...

REMF Life Inside The Wire

by Kevin Baldwin

REMF Life Inside The WireMOST VIETNAM VETERANS SAW COMBAT. Actually the opposite is true; only a relatively small percentage was ever involved in combat. In fact, it is likely less than 30% of all who served there ever saw combat of any sort during their war. (Myths & Misconceptions: Vietnam War Folklore - by Michael Kelley, July 1998).Some 2.6 million Americans served in the Republic of Vietnam between 1957 and 1975. So what were the other "likely more than" 70% of them up to in that place? Or more to the point, who wants to read a Vietnam book or watch a Vietnam film or documentary about a Company Clerk or a Switchboard Operator? Or how about the Mess Sergeant or the Motor Pool? Or even a focus on the BOQ? Borrr...ing! Then again, if you haven't read about or watched any of that, an...

Worked To Death: Auschwitz-Birkenau Holocaust

by Amy Cravitz

This is the seventh book that Amy has put together in her quest to uncover every faucet of daily life in the hell of a German extermination camp. Translated from its original Polish, Amy strives to maintain the exact flavor of psychological terror that the Jewish workers at Auschwitz-Birkenau had to endure. Many were put to death or simply died on their own. Others were given scraps of food in return for slaving away for long days of merciless back breaking labor. Sometimes the work seemed worse than death itself. Here, the every day life of one such worker is chronicled, but with a twist. This particular worker finds his way into one of the 'trick programs' put together to fool Red Cross visiting groups. In this fascinating account, we can readily see how easy it would have been to trick ...

Women's Work and Chicano Families: Cannery Workers of the Santa Clara Valley (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)

by Patricia Zavella

At the time Women’s Work and Chicano Families: Cannery Workers of the Santa Clara Valley was published, little research had been done on the relationship between the wage labor and household labor of Mexican American women. Drawing on revisionist social theories relating to Chicano family structure as well as on feminist theory, Patricia Zavella paints a compelling picture of the Chicano women who worked in northern California’s fruit and vegetable canneries. Her book combines social history, shop floor ethnography, and in-depth interviews to explore the links between Chicano family life and gender inequality in the labor market....

A Bowl for a Coin: A Commodity History of Japanese Tea

by William Wayne Farris

A Bowl for a Coin is the first book in any language to describe and analyze the history of all Japanese teas from the plant’s introduction to the archipelago around 750 to the present day. To understand the triumph of the tea plant in Japan, William Wayne Farris begins with its cultivation and goes on to describe the myriad ways in which the herb was processed into a palatable beverage, ultimately resulting in the wide variety of teas we enjoy today. Along the way, he traces in fascinating detail the shift in tea’s status from exotic gift item from China, tied to Heian (794–1185) court ritual and medicinal uses, to tax and commodity for exchange in the 1350s, to its complete nativization in Edo (1603–1868) art and literature and its eventual place on the table of every Japanese hou...
