ON 14 June 1919 – eight years before Charles Lindbergh’s flight across the Atlantic – two men from Manchester took off in an open-cockpit Vickers Vimy and flew into the history books. They battled through a sixteen-hour journey of snow, ice and continuous cloud, with a non-functioning wireless and a damaged exhaust that made it impossible to hear each other. And then, just five hours away from Ireland and high above the sea, the Vimy stalled. Yesterday We Were in America is the incredible story of John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown, and how they gave hope to a post-war world that was in grave need of it.

This book started as a result of four ordinary people seeing something wrong in their small tourist community and tried to right it. Who would have thought that our government would subject its own people to the damaging emissions of the oil and gas industry? This book is about the fight of four people fighting the oil companies and the Local, State and Federal governmental agencies charged with protecting its citizens. It is seen through the eyes of one of the group, who has had a stroke and contributed to the "fight" by sending out hundreds of email newsletters almost weekly. The fight to save a community's way of life was marred with disillusionment and frustration, but they continued to fight. In Lewiston and surrounding area there are roughly 5000 gas and oil wells along with their associated facilities. The particular offloading facility the group focused on was emitting illegal amounts of Hydrogen Sulfide and Sulfur Dioxide and no one was stopping them. Lewiston was downwind from this facility most days. The local, state and federal governments were fighting us. They threw up road blocks every way we turned as if they didn't want us to know what was really going on. Why? Because of the many lies that the group uncovered as to what was really happening at the facility. Local citizens were looking the other way. Others were calling us crazy or to just leave the problem alone! Did they have oil/gas wells on their property, possibly collecting royalties? The group has hundreds of pages of transcripts, videotapes and photographs to prove otherwise. The Citizens Against Environmental Destruction, as we came to call ourselves, were fighting an uphill battle, but battle we did and are continuing to do to save our lives and our community. Too many health problems. Too many deaths. Why? Read and hope this never happens to your community. The knowledge of how our government works to protect us (they don´t) was so disappointing.

Truman on the A-bomb deliberations, land with John Smith at Virginia, ride against Custer at Little Horn, get on down to Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, march to 'The Grapes of Wrath' at Shiloh, work your fingers to the bone at Henry Ford's car plant . . . this is America - the beautiful, the powerful, the tragic, the glorious.

As a child I was never afraid to die but, I was afraid to live. In America, there are thousands and thousands of foster children. Most have a happy place to call home. There are a percent who live in a home of abuse of all forms. I am writing my autobiography to bring attention to those who are abused and have no way out. I lived in six different foster homes and two group homes, and in three of the foster homes, I was abused, beaten, raped, and used as a sex toy, and I was raped in one group home. I promised myself no matter what that I would make it. I would be someone making the right choices in life because, after all, it was God who gave me this life, and I know He watched over me. He sent people when I needed them most. We foster children are separated from our parents through no fault of our own. Our parents can be drug addicts, criminals, may just not have the means to provide, or they abuse the child. I watch the news and see the children taken from their parents as the police put Mom and Dad in the police car and CYFS, Children Youth and Family services, load the children in a car, and off we go to God knows where. Most people watching the same news station say, "Thank God the children are safe." Are they? Do you understand what happens next to the American foster child? Once the news story is over, you forget all about those children, but their hell is just beginning. We are plunged into a world where we have no control, into strangers' homes or into group homes with kids just like us or kids who take advantage of us. It is one scary place to be, and you have no clue what happened to your parents or if they are coming to get you or you are now just a name on paper and forgotten about. This country needs to take care of their own children. It is on the parents, and their choices dictate their children's lives. I grew up in foster care from age seven to nineteen. I made my choices. I graduated high school at nineteen and went to college and then to tech school to become an auto mechanic, I worked two part-time jobs and a full-time job and paid back all of my school loans on my own and made it in life. I write my childhood down in hopes of just one foster child to read, and I pray it has an effect on them to strive to become a productive person and make it. In the end, I got the payoff I have always wanted""a person to love me for me, and I married her, and twenty-five years later, we are still soulmates and best friends. She is my life, and I am hers, and now, our child is our life. Thank you and God bless.

A one-of-a-kind anthology of primary texts in American foreign relations How should America wield its enormous power beyond its borders? Should it adhere to grand principles or act on narrow self-interest? Should it partner with other nations or avoid entangling alliances? Americans have been grappling with questions like these throughout the nation's history, and especially since the emergence of the United States as a major world power in the late nineteenth century. America in the World illuminates this history by capturing the diverse voices and viewpoints of some of the most colorful and eloquent people who participated in these momentous debates. Spanning the era from the Gilded Age to the Obama years, this unique reader collects more than two hundred documents—everything from presidential addresses and diplomatic cables to political cartoons and song lyrics. It encompasses various phases of American diplomatic history that are typically treated separately, such as the First World War, the Cold War, and 9/11. The book presents the perspectives of elite policymakers—presidents, secretaries of state, generals, and diplomats—alongside those of other kinds of Americans, such as newspaper columnists, clergymen, songwriters, poets, and novelists. It also features numerous documents from other countries, illustrating how foreigners viewed America’s role in the world. Ideal for classroom use, America in the World sheds light on the complex interplay of political, economic, ideological, and cultural factors underlying the exercise of American power on the global stage. Includes more than two hundred documents from the late nineteenth century to today Looks at everything from presidential addresses to political cartoons and song lyrics Presents diverse perspectives, from elite policymakers to clergymen and novelists Features documents from outside the United States, illustrating how people in other countries viewed America’s role in the world
