Title VIETNAM : a new history

Tue, 09/13/2016 - 1:59am
Title VIETNAM :
Author Goscha, Christopher E, author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary "Vietnam's role in one of the Cold War's longest-running conflicts has meant that its past has been endlessly abused. Popular accounts have cherry-picked from the Vietnamese past to tell politicized, American-centered stories--either reducing the story of Vietnam and the Vietnamese to a noble tradition of anticolonial resistance embodied by the communist leader Ho Chi Minh, or alternatively seeking to rehabilitate American allies by making similarly essentialist claims about "the Vietnamese" and their history. Now, over forty years after the end of the American war in Vietnam, the events which created the modern state of Vietnam can be seen in truly historical perspective. Christopher Goscha's Vietnam: A New History tells the story of this fascinating and complex country on its own terms, emphasizing the contingency that characterizes Vietnam's history and the diversity of its people, polities, geography, and experiences as both colonized and colonizers"-- Provided by publisher.

As Alex navigates single life, long-buried family secrets, and part-time fatherhood, his son begins playing Minecraft.

Inspired by Keith Stuart's own relationship with his autistic son, A Boy Made of Blocks is a tear-jerking, funny, and, most of all, true-to-life novel about the power of difference and one very special little boy"-- Provided by publisher.

Author Zirin, James D., author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary "On the eve of a presidential election that may determine the makeup of Supreme Court justices for decades to come, prominent attorney James D. Zirin argues that the Court has become increasingly partisan, rapidly making policy choices right and left on bases that have nothing to do with law or the Constitution. Zirin explains how we arrived at the present situation and looks at the current divide through its leading partisans, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor on the left and Clarence Thomas and the late Antonin Scalia on the right. He also examines four of the Court's most controversial recent decisions--Hobby Lobby, Obamacare, gay marriage, and capital punishment--arguing that these politicized decisions threaten to undermine public confidence in the Supreme Court"--Publisher description.

The finest wine, the most up-to-date fashion, and the most luxurious vacations are all at her fingertips. What no one knows is that five years ago, Zoe's life was in danger. Back then, Zoe wasn't Zoe at all. Now her secretsare coming back to haunt her. As the past and present collide, Zoe must decide who she can trust before she--whoever she is--vanishes completely.
