    Covering a time of great hope and incredible change, Reconstructing America is a dramatic look at life after the Civil War in the newly re-United States. Railroad tycoons were roaring across the country. New cities sprang up across the plains, and a new and different American West came into being: a land of farmers, ranchers, miners, and city dwellers. Publisher's summary Edit. The Book Of The Peace – being the only accurate record of the end of the War between the Great Houses and their Enemy, and the affects thereof on the denizens of the Spiral Politic and wider universe in the period in which the armistice was negotiated and signed. – presenting the accounts of a small number of subjects from a range of time periods and places, using Cover by: Lawrence Burton.

Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc. Occasionally, maligned as an anti-Christian symbol (an upside-down broken “Nero-cross”), a satanic character, or even a Nazi emblem, the iconic peace sign is apparently not so innocent to everyone. Thankfully, the symbol has a clear history, and its origin is not so controversial.

      History is usually written by the victor; an unfollowed generality in the case of the Vietnam War. Hanoi's War is a compelling step towards addressing this shortcoming. Nguyen tracks the evolution of strategy and negotiation through the review of diplomatic notes, telegrams and biographies within and between the key players in (North) Vietnam/5. Because Charles Howlett understands the dynamic that peace history, like peace activism, is both an individual and a shared experience, his book is a reflection of the workings of the field itself." – Harriet Hyman Alonso, Professor of History, The City College and Pages:
