The Contracted World: New & More Selected Poems
In The Contracted World, Peter Meinke brings us new poems and old, including in this collection work from four of his previous volumes. The poems show what it is like to live and grow up in America; they are full of images of “love, nature, cities, sports, war, and peace” as well as grief, confusion, and death. “Despite feelings of anger and loneliness, the narrator speaks to us in a personal, accessible, and often humorous voice.” More ...

This collection of essays expresses Henry Adams’s interest in knowledge and his need to clarify the role of critical intelligence in public life.

Leading Leaders: How to Manage Smart, Talented, Rich and Powerful People
Leading Leaders will tell you, as the title suggests, how to deal with influential, talented, and valuable people. The problem is that, being all of the above, they are not extremely tractable, nor extremely cooperative. Salacuse shows the reader how to “leverage the expertise of the elites that work in and around any organization, and how to bring strong personalities and opinions together while leaving the common power struggles and politics behind.” Salacuse is the Henry J. Baker Professor of Law and former dean of the Fletcher School of Law at Tufts University. He has served as executive, consultant, Wall Street lawyer, and director of several mutual funds listed on the New York Stock Exchange. More ...
Lost Generations: A Boy, A School, A Princess

Historical Dictionary of U.S. Diplomacy from the Civil War to World War I
Launching the new series of Historical Dictionaries of U.S. Diplomacy, this volume provides a convenient introduction to a critical period of American diplomacy. The half-century from 1861 to 1914 formed a crucial time in the development of the American approach to the world, for the United States laid the foundations for its 20th century foreign policy. While the famed Monroe Doctrine insisted that no foreign power meddle in the American continent, it did not stop the U.S. from waging war against Spain, mixing in conflicts in Cuba, Chile, and Mexico, nor in backing independence for Panama, all the while acquiring smaller Pacific islands. More ...

Kingston: City on the Hudson
Evers, town historian of Woodstock, New York, died in 2004, a few months after finishing this history of Kingston. Inhabited by Indians since pre-history, colonized by Dutch traders in the seventeenth century, oppressed by British Colonial rule, and an important locus of action during the American Revolution, Kingston was also the home of progressive thinkers in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The volume is designed for personal or group use, with questions to guide reflections at the end of each chapter. The poems themselves are “finely wrought and from the soul and heart [and] touchstones along the way.” More ...
