The Autobiography of Malcolm X was intended to be a true autobiography, with the name of Alex Haley appearing not at all or as a ghost writer or as a mere contributor or assistant. However, with the assassination of Malcolm X having occurred in Harlem in New York City on February 21, 1965 just before this book could be published, it became necessary to reveal the important role of Alex Haley in creating this book.The Autobiography of Malcolm X

Price: $19.00 - $12.23
(as of Dec 12,2018 16:30:27 UTC – Details)



This persuasive, elegantly written book argues that understanding evolution has never mattered more in human history. The author uses evidence from archaeology, geography, anatomy, biochemistry, radiometric dating, cell biology, chromosomes, and DNA to establish the inescapable conclusion that we evolved and are still evolving. He also explains in detail how health, food production, and human impact on the environment are dependent on our knowledge of evolution. This is essential reading for gaining a fuller appreciation of who we are, our place in the great expanse of life, and the importance of our actions.

(as of Dec 12,2018 14:41:12 UTC – Details)



Available in paperback for the first time, these three volumes represent the definitive biography of Andrew Jackson. Volume One covers the role Jackson played in America’s territorial expansion, bringing to life a complex character who has often been seen simply as a rough-hewn country general. Volume Two traces Jackson’s senatorial career, his presidential campaigns, and his first administration as President. The third volume covers Jackson’s reelection to the presidency and the weighty issues with which he was faced: the nullification crisis, the tragic removal of the Indians beyond the Mississippi River, the mounting violence throughout the country over slavery, and the tortuous efforts to win the annexation of Texas.

Covering America: A Narrative History of a Nation’s Journalism


Price: $49.95 - $46.46
(as of Dec 12,2018 11:25:13 UTC – Details)



Today many believe that American journalism is in crisis, with traditional sources of news under siege from a failing business model, a resurgence of partisanship, and a growing expectation that all information ought to be free. In Covering America, Christopher B. Daly places the current crisis within a much broader historical context, showing how it is only the latest in a series of transitions that have required journalists to devise new ways of plying their trade.

Drawing on original research and synthesizing the latest scholarship, Daly traces the evolution of journalism in America from the early 1700s to the “digital revolution” of today. Analyzing the news business as a business, he identifies five major periods of journalism history, each marked by a different response to the recurrent conflicts that arise when a vital cultural institution is housed in a major private industry.

Throughout his narrative history Daly captures the ethos of journalism with engaging anecdotes, biographical portraits of key figures, and illuminating accounts of the coverage of major news events as well as the mundane realities of day-to-day reporting.University of Massachusetts Press



The Mystery of History, Volume II, Quarter 3: The Early Church and the Middle Ages

Price: 00.00
(as of Dec 12,2018 09:54:32 UTC – Details)



CHRONOLOGICAL, CHRISTIAN, and COMPLETE
The Mystery of History, Volume II (c. A.D. 33–1456), provides a historically accurate, Bible-based approach to learning the history of the Early Church and the Middle Ages. By incorporating hands-on activities along with reading, writing, and research projects, The Mystery of History offers something for all learning styles and supports all methods of education.

Chronological – Beginning with Creation, The Mystery of History four-volume series presents world history in chronological order, covering every significant corner of the globe. Volume II specifically focuses on people of the Early Church, like Paul, St. Augustine, and Jerome, and weaves them into the traditional stories of the Middle Ages, such as the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the invasion of the Vikings, and the Crusades of Richard the Lionhearted. In this exciting journey through time, students will also meet world figures like Vladimir I, El Cid, William Wallace, and Joan of Arc while learning about the Magna Carta, the Black Death, the Forbidden City, and much more.

Christian – The Mystery of History is distinctively written from a Christian worldview. Creation-based, Christ-centered, and standing on the authoritative Word of God, lessons in The Mystery of History are like fragments of a mosaic that, when put together, reveal a much bigger picture and tell a much larger story. They point toward God’s redemptive plan for mankind through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Complete – Divided into twenty-eight weeks of study (seven weeks per quarter), The Mystery of History, Volume II, is easy to use for one student at home, ten in a co-op, or hundreds in a school. Reading three lessons a week, students and teachers can implement any of the following components contained in this volume to make it a complete, customized course in the Early Church and the Middle Ages.
