Why CCSS Matters for College Courses:
“Higher education attainment is an ultimate goal of the Common Core standards, which
aim to make sure students are ‘college and career-ready’ by the end of high school. . . . If the
Common Core is implemented as advocates intend, its effects would significantly alter how
many things work in higher education too. . . . [Transforming] dual enrollment programs,
placement tests, and remediation. They could force colleges within state systems, and even
across states, to agree on what it means to be ‘college ready,’ and to work alongside K–12
to help students who are unprepared for college before they graduate from high school.
In the long run, it could force changes in credit-bearing courses too, to better align with
what students are supposed to have mastered by high school graduation.”
—Libby A. Nelson,“Common Core Curriculum for K–12 Could Have Far-reaching Effects
on Higher Education”(5/3/2013) Inside Higher Ed. (tiny.cc/vhrwxw)

LuCkY JIM
By kinsley Amis • Introduction by Keith Gessen
This is the story of Jim Dixon, a hapless lecturer in medieval history at a provincial university. Kingsley
Amis’s scabrous debut leads the reader through a gallery of emphatically English bores, cranks, frauds,
and neurotics with whom Dixon must contend in one way or another in order to hold on to his cushy
academic perch and win the girl of his fancy.
More than just a merciless satire of cloistered college life and stuffy postwar manners, Lucky Jim is an
attack on the forces of boredom.
“Remarkable for its relentless skewering of artifice and pretension, Lucky Jim also contains some of
the finest comic set pieces in the language.” —Olivia Laing, The Observer

PRIDE AND PREJuDICE
By Jane Asten
The story of Mrs. Bennet’s attempts to marry off her five daughters, Pride and Prejudice has remained
one of the most popular novels in the English language. Jane Austen herself called this brilliant work
her “own darling child.” As the characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, Austen’s
radiantly caustic wit and keen observation sparkle. The Modern Library edition includes an Introduc-
tion by Anna Quindlen.

HOW TO LIVE
Or a Lie o Montaine in One Qestion and Tenty Attempts at an Anser
By Sarah Baeell
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography
How do you live? This question obsessed Renaissance writers, none more than Montaigne. He wrote
explorations of his thoughts and experience unlike anything written before. More than 400 years later,
Montaigne’s honesty and charm still draw people to his work. Readers come to Montaigne in search
of companionship, wisdom, and entertainment—and in search of themselves. They will be similarly
drawn to this spirited and singular biography.

SOLL OF THE ACE: A Biograpby of tbe MinJ of WiÌÌiam Sbakespeare
By Jonatban Bate
Finalist for the PEN/Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography
In this highly innovative study, structured around the famous monologue from As You Like It, “All the
world’s a stage,” Bate surveys the beliefs and obsessions of the Elizabethan world in which
Shakespeare was an infant, a schoolboy, a lover, an intellectual, a philosopher, a litigant, and a writer.
“The most artful, intriguing, and satisfying study of the mind of William Shakespeare we now
possess. No other biography has used Shakespeare’s works so resourcefully to shed light on his
life. Amajor achievement from a master of Shakespeare studies.”

JANE EYRE
By CbarÌotte Brontë

the English literary scene, immediately winning the devotion of many of the world’s most renowned
writers, including William Makepeace Thackeray, who declared it a work “of great genius.”
Widely regarded as a revolutionary novel, Brontë’s masterpiece introduced the world to a radical new
type of heroine, one whose defiant virtue and moral courage departed sharply from the more
acquiescent and malleable female characters of the day. The Bantam Classics edition includes an
Introduction by Joyce Carol Oates.The Modern Library edition includes an Introduction by Diane

THE CANTERBURY TALES
By Geoffrey Chaucer
Chaucer’s most celebrated work, The Canterbury Tales (c.1387), in which a group of pilgrims entertain
each other with stories on the road to Canterbury, is a masterpiece of narration, description, and
character portrayal. The tellers and their tales are as fresh and vivid today as they were six centuries
ago. The Bantam Classics edition is edited, introduced, and translated by Peter G. Beidler, building on
an earlier edition by A. Kent Hieatt and Constance Hieatt. The Modern Library edition is translated by
Burton Raffel and includes an Introduction by John Miles Foley.

THE AWAKENING
By Kate Chopin
First published in 1899, this beautiful, brief novel so disturbed critics and the public that it was
banished for decades afterward. Awidely read and admired book, The Awakening has been hailed as
an early vision of women’s emancipation. This sensuous book tells of a woman’s abandonment of her
family, her seduction, and her awakening to desires and passions that threatened to consume her.
Originally entitled A Solitary Soul, this portrait of twenty-eight-year-old Edna Pontellier is a landmark
in American fiction, rooted firmly in the romantic tradition of Herman Melville and Emily Dickinson.
The Bantam Classics edition includes an Introduction by Marilynne Robinson.

The first social exposé in fiction to render “how the other half lives,” Stephen Crane’s Maggie is one of

appearance in 1893: “Maggie is a study of life in the slums of New York, and of the hopeless struggle
of a girl against the horrible conditions of her environment.” The Modern Library edition includes an

ALL THE TIME IN THE wORLD: Ne and Selected Stories
By E. L. Doctoro
From a master of modern American letters comes an enthralling collection of short fiction about people
who, as E. L. Doctorow notes in his Preface, are somehow “distinct from their surroundings—people
in some sort of contest with the prevailing world.” Containing six unforgettable stories that have never
appeared in book form, and a selection of previous classics, All the Time in the World is resonant with
the mystery and moral investigation that distinguish the fiction of E. L. Doctorow.
“The incandescent new stories and forever stunning vintage tales . . . selected for this powerhouse
collection [are] complex and masterful . . . wise and resplendent.” —Booklist

CRIME AND PuNISHMENT
By fyodor Dostoesy • Translated by Constance Garnett • Introdction by Joseph fran
Ayoung university student sets out to prove that he is a superior human being capable of committing
the perfect murder. Anovel of great physical and psychological tension, Crime and Punishment is the
story of a murder committed on principle, of a killer who wishes by his action to set himself outside
and above society.
Crime and Punishment takes the reader on a journey into the darkest recesses of the criminal and
depraved mind, and exposes the soul of a man possessed by both good and evil—a man who cannot
escape his own conscience.

THE wASTE LAND AND OTHER wRITINgS
By T. S. Eliot • Introduction by Mary Karr
First published in 1922, “The Waste Land” is T. S. Eliot’s masterpiece, and is not only one of the key
works of modernism, but also one of the greatest poetic achievements of the twentieth century. Arichly
allusive pilgrimage of spiritual and psychological torment and redemption, Eliot’s poem exerted a
revolutionary influence on his contemporaries, summoning forth a rich new poetic language, breaking
decisively with Romantic and Victorian poetic traditions.
In her new Introduction, Mary Karr dispels some of the myths of the great poem’s inaccessibility and
sheds fresh light on the ways in which “The Waste Land” illuminates contemporary experience.

MR. TOPPIT: A Novel
By Charles Elton
When Arthur Hayman, an unsuccessful screenwriter turned children’s book author, is accidentally hit
by a cement truck in London, his dying moments are spent with an American tourist who is fated to
bring posthumous fame to his obscure series, The Hayseed Chronicles. Arthur’s legacy falls to his widow,
Martha, and their children, the fragile Rachel and Luke, reluctantly immortalized as the fictional Luke
Hayseed, hero of his father’s books.
“Mr. Toppit is a darkly comic, thoroughly engaging narrative about a successful writer and the
complicated legacy he leaves to his wife and children, and to the world at large. Charles Elton’s
witty and unsettling debut novel explores the emotional turmoil that results when a family’s
private history gets transformed into public myth.”

TEN PLAYS
By Eripides • Translated by Moses Hadas and John McLean
Introduction by Moses Hadas
The first playwright of democracy, Euripides wrote with enduring insight and biting satire about social
and political problems of Athenian life. In contrast to his contemporaries, he brought an exciting—and,
to the Greeks, a stunning—realism to the “pure and noble form” of tragedy. For the first time in history,
heroes and heroines on the stage were not idealized. As Sophocles said, “Euripides shows people not
as they ought to be, but as they actually are.”
Considered by George Bernard Shaw to be the greatest of the Greek dramatists, Euripides is now
regarded by many as the originator of the dramatic sensibility that developed into what we call
“modern” European drama.

THE ESSENTIAL wRITINgS Of RALPH wALDO EMERSON
By Ralph waldo Emerson • Edited by Broos Atinson • Introduction by Mary Oliver
The definitive collection of Emerson’s major speeches, essays, and poetry, The Essential Writings of Ralph
Waldo Emerson chronicles the life’s work of a true “American Scholar.”
As one of the architects of the transcendentalist movement, Emerson embraced a philosophy that
championed the individual, emphasized independent thought, and prized “the splendid labyrinth of
one’s own perceptions.” More than any writer of his time, he forged a style distinct from his European
predecessors and embodied and defined what it meant to be an American. MatthewArnold called
Emerson’s essays “the most important work done in prose.”

DREAMINg IN CuBAN: A Novel
By Cristina garcía
Here is the dreamy and bittersweet story of a family divided by politics and geography during the
Cuban revolution. It is the family story of Celia del Pino—and her husband, daughter and grand-
children—from the mid-1930s to 1980s. Celia’s story mirrors the magical realism of Cuba itself, a
country of beauty and poverty, idealism and corruption.
“Dreaming in Cuban is written in language that is by turns languid and sensual, curt and surprising.
García has distilled a new tongue from scraps salvaged through upheaval.”

THE MIRADOR: Dreamed Memories o Irène Némirosy by Her Dahter
By Élisabeth gille • Translated by Marina Harss
Élisabeth Gille was only five years old when her mother, Irène Némirovksy, the author of Suite
Française, died in Aushwitz. In 1992, Gille published this fictionalized autobiography of her mother,
who had led a sparkling life in Paris as one of the most successful and prolific European writers of
the 1930s before being arrested as a Jew led to her death in 1942. As fully and deeply imagined as
Némirovksy’s novels, The Mirador will prove indispensable to devotees of Gille’s nearly forgotten
mother, who is brought back to life by Gille’s graceful words.

THE DEAD
By James Joyce
Often cited as the best work of short fiction ever written, James Joyce’s elegant novella details a New
Year’s Eve gathering in Dublin attended by Gabriel and Getta Conroy. The party is so evocative and
beautiful that it prompts Getta to reveal to her husband the story of her tragic first love many years
before. Generally insecure and introspective, Gabriel realizes there is much he doesn’t know about
his wife and the story closes with an emotionally powerful epiphany that is unsurpassed in modern
literature.

BABBITT
By Sinclair Leis
In this sardonic portrait of the up-and-coming middle class during America’s most prosperous decade

Bantam Classics edition includes an Introduction by John Wickersham. The Modern Library edition
includes an Introduction by Richard Lingeman.

MAIN STREET
By Sinclair Leis
The first of his major novels of the 1920s, Sinclair Lewis’s Main Street satirizes the manners of the
American Midwest. Here is the story of Carol Kennicott, who, to be accepted, must adapt to the ways
of Gopher Prairie, Minnesota.
Lewis’s portrayal of a marriage torn by disillusionment and a woman forced into compromises is at
once devastating social satire and persuasive realism. This groundbreaking novel attacks conformism,
commercialism, moneygrubbing, and the decline in what Lewis saw as the American ideals of freedom
and respect for individuality. The Bantam Classics edition includes an Introduction by Morris Dick-
stein.

ALL SOULS: A Family Story from Southie
By Michael Patric MacDonald
All Souls takes us deep into Michael Patrick MacDonald’s Southie, the proudly insular neighborhood
with the highest concentration of white poverty in the United States. Rocked by Whitey Bulger’s crime
schemes and busing riots, MacDonald’s Southie is populated by sharply hewn characters like his Ma,
a mini-skirted, accordion-playing single mother who endures the deaths of four of her eleven children.
Nearly suffocated by his grief and his community’s code of silence, MacDonald tells his family story
here with gritty but moving honesty.

MY LIfE IN MIDDLEMARCH

“A wise, humane, and delightful study of what some regard as the best novel in English. Mead has
discovered an original and highly personal way to make herself an inhabitant both of the book and
of George Eliot’s imaginary city. ” —Harold Bloom

DAYTRIPPER
By fábio Moon and gabriel Bá
A Library Journal Best Book for Graphic Novel
Daytripper follows the life of one man, Brás de Olivia Domingos. Every chapter features an important
period in Brás’s life in exotic Brazil, and each story ends the same way: with his death. And then, the
following story starts up at a different point in his life, oblivious to his death in the previous issue, and
then also ends with him dying. Each issue rediscovers the many varieties of daily life—in a story about
living life to its fullest—because any of us can die at any moment. Moon and Bá tell a beautifully lyrical
tale chronicling Brás’s entire existence—from his loves to his deaths and all the possibilities in between.
“An experience that will resonate with you long after you have put the book down.”

THE NARRATIVE OF ARTHuR CORDON PYM OF NANTuCKET
By EJgar AÌÌan Poe
After reading an 1836 newspaper account of a shipwreck and its two survivors, Edgar Allan Poe
penned his only novel, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, the story of a stowaway on a
Nantucket whale ship who finds himself enmeshed in the dark side of life at sea: mutiny, cannibalism,
savagery—and even death. The Modern Library edition includes an Introduction by Jeffrey Meyers.

SNOWBALL’S CHANCE
By Jobn ReeJ • ForeworJ by AÌexanJer Cockburn • AfterworJ by James Sberry
Written in 14 days shortly after the September 11th attacks, Snowball’s Chance is an outrageous and
unauthorized companion to George Orwell’s Animal Farm, in which exiled pig Snowball returns to
the farm, takes charge, and implements a new world order of untrammeled capitalism. Orwell’s “All
animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” has morphed into the new rallying
cry: “All animals are born equal—what they become is their own affair.”
Atimely political satire and literary parody, John Reed’s Snowball’s Chance has caused controversy since
its publication in 2002. Now, a decade later, with America in wars on many fronts, readers can judge
anew the visionary truth of Reed’s satirical masterpiece.

ALL QLIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT: A NoveÌ
By Ericb Maria Remarque • TransÌateJ by Artbur WesÌey Wbeen
Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria
Remarque’s masterpiece about the German experience during World War I.
Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful, and
enthusiastic, they become soldiers. But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under
the first bombardment in the trenches. And as horrible war plods on year after year, Paul holds fast
to a single vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pit young men of the same
generation but different uniforms against each other—if only he can come out of the war alive. This is
the classic anti-war novel about young German soldiers during World War I. Few books have achieved
such dramatic acclaim or enduring success.

MACBETH
By WiÌÌiam Sbakespeare
No dramatist has ever seen with more frightening clarity into the heart and mind of a murderer than
has Shakespeare in this brilliant and bloody tragedy of evil. Taunted into asserting his “masculinity”
by his ambitious wife, Macbeth chooses to embrace the Weird Sisters’ prophecy and kill his king—and,
thus, seals his own doom.

THE MOLNTAIN LION
By Jean StafforJ • AfterworJ by Katbryn Davis
Two kids growing up in a genteel suburb of Los Angeles, Ralph and his younger sister, Molly, are
independent-minded, highly imaginative, and more than a little wild. They have no patience with the
evasive politeness and mincing words of their mother and older sisters, so they’re delighted when
they’re sent for the summer to the Colorado mountain ranch of their uncle Claude. Initially, the
children feel liberated by this encounter with nature at its most ruggedly spectacular and
demanding. Soon, however, Ralph begins to sense, not without anxiety, the call and challenge of
impending manhood, while Molly, for her part, burns both with the ambition of becoming a writer
and the fear of being left behind in childhood. Neither suspects that tragedy may be the cost
of coming of age.

“Darin Strauss has spent a good part of his adult life reliving, regretting and reflecting on a single,
split-second incident. Half a Life is a starkly honest account of that fateful moment and his life

In this inspiring book of essays, Grand Central Winter vividly describes the author Lee Stringer’s

“Stringer gives us . . . the long view of New York’s underbelly, born of pain but delivered with style

SLEEPAWAY SCHOOL: Stories from a Boy’s Life, A Memoir
By Lee Stringer • foreworJ by Kurt Vonnegut
Like his brother before him, Stringer was surrendered to foster care shortly after birth by his unwed
and underemployed mother—a common practice for unmarried women in mid-century America. Less
common was that she returned six years later to reclaim her children. Rather than leading to a happy
ending, though, this is where Stringer’s story begins. The clash of being poor and black in an affluent,
largely white New York suburb begins to foment pain and rage, which erupts, more often than not,
when he is at school. One violent episode results in his expulsion from the sixth grade and his
subsequent three-year stint at Hawthorne, the “Sleepaway School” of the title.

THE MAN THAT CORRuPTED HADLEYBuRg
By Mar Tain
Written on hotel stationery while Mark Twain was in Europe on the run fromAmerican creditors,
soon after the death of a daughter, The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg is often cited as a work of bitter
cynicism—a statement on America, to some; on the Dreyfus Case, to others—created by a weary author
at the end of his career.
The story of a mysterious stranger who orchestrates a fraud embarrassing the hypocritical citizens
of “incorruptible” Hadleyburg, this novella is an exceptionally crafted work intertwining a devious
and suspenseful plot with some of the wittiest dialogue Twain ever wrote. This brilliant novella is a
complex and compassionate consideration of the human character by a master at the height of his form.

THE MYSTERIOuS STRANgER
By Mar Tain
The Mysterious Stranger, published posthumously in 1916, is Mark Twain’s final work and very much
belonging to his “dark” period, which belies the popular image of the affable American humorist. A
teenage stranger named Satan visits the remote Austrian village Eseldorf and informs a group of teens
that misfortune is about to befall their families. This starts a series of events that lead the village into
mayhem. In this antireligious tale, Twain denies the existence of a benign Providence, a soul, an
afterlife, and even reality itself. As the Stranger in the story asserts, “nothing exists; all is a dream.”

In God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian, Vonnegut skips back and forth between life and the afterlife as if the
difference between them were rather slight. In thirty odd “interviews,” Vonnegut trips down “the blue
tunnel to the pearly gates” in the guise of a roving reporter conducting interviews for public radio.
What began as a series of ninety-second radio interludes for WNYC, New York City’s public radio
station, evolved into this provocative collection of musings about who and what we live for, and how
much it all matters in the end. From the original portrait by his friend Jules Feiffer that graces the cover
to a final entry from Kilgore Trout, God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian remains a joy.

THE LONELY vOICE: A Study of the Short Story
By fran O’Connor • Introdction by Rssell Bans
Frank O’Connor is one of Ireland’s greatest authors, and his influential treatise on the short story is
back. In it, the master covers the techniques and challenges of the form, discussing Chekhov,
Hemingway, Joyce, Kipling, and others.
“This is a brilliant book on a subject about which little has been written. It carries, besides, the
authority a critical work always possesses when its author is a distinguished practitioner of the art
he is criticizing.” —The New York Times Book Review
“It’s unsurprising that this book should prove so hardy; O’Connor was compelling when voicing an
opinion. What Richard Ellmann calls the ‘assumptive tone’ of his criticism can inspire, thrill and
infuriate, but will never bore.” —The Guardian

live meet the art they practice. That these two writers happen to be Kurt Vonnegut and Lee Stringer
makes this a historic and joyous occasion. As Vonnegut said afterward, “It was a magical evening.”

LAW IN AMERICA: A Sbort History
By Lawrence M. FrieJman
Throughout America’s history, our laws have been a reflection of who we are, of what we value, of who
has control. They embody our society’s genetic code. In the masterful hands of Lawrence M. Friedman,
the story of the evolution of our laws serves to lay bare the deciding struggles over power and justice
that have shaped this country from its birth pangs to the present. Law in America is a supreme example
of the historian’s art, its brevity a testament to the great elegance and wit of its composition.
“[A] concise and lucid overview of the development of the law as it parallels the track of American
social, economic, political, and cultural history.”—Booklist

With early America as its backdrop, Madison and Jefferson reveals these founding fathers as privileged
young men in a land marked by tribal identities rather than a united national personality. In riveting
detail, the authors chart the courses of two very different presidencies: Jefferson’s driven by force of
personality; Madison’s sustained by a militancy that history has been reluctant to ascribe to him.
“A remarkably lucid account. . . . With stunning style and clarity, [Burstein and Isenberg have]
meticulously reexamined this political relationship.” —Library Journal
“A superb book that greatly deepens our understanding of these founders.”

THE LONC WALK TO FREEDOM: Runaway SÌave Narratives
EJiteJ anJ witb an IntroJuction by Devon W. CarbaJo anJ DonaÌJ Weise
In this groundbreaking compilation of first-person accounts of the runaway slave phenomenon, editors
Devon W. Carbado and Donald Weise have recovered twelve narratives spanning eight decades—more
than half of which have been long out of print. Told in the voices of the runaway slaves themselves,
these narratives reveal the extraordinary and often innovative ways that these men and women sought
freedom and demanded citizenship.
“A landmark achievement, The Long Walk to Freedom allows fugitive slaves to speak for them-
selves—on their own terms and in their own voices.”

DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA: Tbe CompÌete anJ LnabriJgeJ VoÌumes I anJ II
By AÌexis Je TocqueviÌÌe • IntroJuction by Josepb Epstein
FromAmerica’s call for a free press to its embrace of the capitalist system, Democracy in America—first
published in 1835—enlightens, entertains, and endures as a brilliant study of our national government
and our national character. For today’s readers, de Tocqueville’s concern about the effect of majority
rule on the rights of individuals remains deeply meaningful. This edition contains the complete texts of
Volumes I and II, with notes and a suggested reading list.
“No better study of a nation’s institutions and culture than Tocqueville’s Democracy in America has
ever been written by a foreign observer; none perhaps as good.” —The New York Times

THE BOYS’ CRuSADE: Tbe American Infantry in Nortbwestern Europe, 1944–1945
By PauÌ FusseÌÌ
Winner of the National Book and National Book Critics Circle Awards
Paul Fussell provides a partly biographical narrative of the war from the point of the children who
fought it. He eschews any kind of sentimentalism, focusing instead on the raw action and human
emotion triggered by the intimacy, horror, and intense sorrows of war, honestly addressing the errors,
waste, and misery that plagued both sides.
“Fussell writes vividly and sardonically . . . painting extraordinary scenes at every turn. . . . A
bracing corrective . . . and just right for a new season of war.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

UNITED STATES HISTORY
wHY wE CAN’T wAIT
By Martin Lther kin, Jr. • Introdction by Dorothy Cotton
In 1963, Birmingham, Alabama, was perhaps the most racially segregated city in the United States, but
the campaign launched by Fred Shuttlesworth, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and others demonstrated to
the world the power of nonviolent direct action.
Often applauded as King’s most incisive and eloquent book, Why We Can’t Wait recounts the
Birmingham campaign in vivid detail, while underscoring why 1963 was such a crucial year for the
civil rights movement. King examines the history of the civil rights struggle and the tasks that future
generations must accomplish to bring about full equality.
“No child should graduate from high school without having read this book. In telling the story of
the third American Revolution, it is as integral to American history as the Declaration of
Independence.” —Jesse Jackson

Brilliantly argued and engrossing, The Fall of the House of Dixie is a sweeping account of the destruction
of the old South during the Civil War, offering a fresh perspective on the most colossal struggle in our
history and the new world it brought into being.
“In a deep, rich, and complex analysis of the period surrounding and including the American Civil
War, University of Illinois historian Levine (Confederate Emancipation) compares the South to the
House of Usher in Poe’s famous story: the prosperous and powerful South looked invincible, but it
had a flaw that made its collapse slow but inevitable.” —Publishers Weekly

CALIFORNIA: A History
By kein Starr
For the first time ever, Kevin Starr, author of the acclaimed seven-volume Americans and the California
Dream series, has distilled his incomparable knowledge of California history into a single,
comprehensive book.
California: A History traces the epic story of America’s most complex state from the earliest Native
Americans to the governorship of Arnold Schwarzenegger, chronicling the Spanish and Mexican eras,
the Gold Rush, the rise of Hollywood, and the emergence of Silicon Valley along the way. This book
should be a core text for any class on California state history.
“The fact that Starr has managed to pack 500 years of historical scholarship into a single
manageable volume is impressive enough, but he also accomplishes the feat with skill, grace
and verve.” —Los Angeles Times

COMMON SENSE
By Thomas Paine
In 1776, America was a hotbed of enlightenment and revolution. Thomas Paine not only spurred his
fellowAmericans to action but also soon came to symbolize the spirit of the Revolution. His elegantly
persuasive pieces spoke to the hearts and minds of those fighting for freedom. He was later outlawed
in Britain, jailed in France, and finally labeled an atheist upon his return to America. The Bantam
Classics edition includes an Introduction by Diana Gabaldon. The Modern Library edition is edited by
Gordon S. Wood.
“No writer has exceeded Paine in ease and familiarity of style; in perspicuity of expression,
happiness of elucidation, and in simple unassuming language.” —Thomas Jefferson

SwEET LAND Of LIBERTY: The Forgotten Struggle for Civil Rights in the North
By Thomas J. Sre
Sweet Land of Liberty is Thomas J. Sugrue’s account of the abiding quest for racial equality in states from
Illinois to New York, and of how the intense northern struggle differed from and was inspired by the
fight down South. Sugrue’s panoramic view sweeps from the 1920s to the present—more than eighty of
the most decisive years in American history.
“Mention the civil rights movement and Birmingham, Selma, and Memphis spring to mind. Rarely
do we recall Boston, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland. But there was a civil rights movement in the North,
Thomas J. Sugrue reminds us in ‘Sweet Land of Liberty,’ and it is impossible to understand race
relations today without pondering what we can learn from it. Sugrue’s exhaustively researched
book brings that movement back to life.” —The New York Times Book Review

THE REBELLIOuS LIfE Of MRS. ROSA PARkS
By Jeanne Theoharis
The definitive political biography of Rosa Parks examines her six decades of activism, challenging
perceptions of her as an accidental actor in the civil rights movement.
Presenting a corrective to the popular notion of Rosa Parks as the quiet seamstress who, with a single
act, birthed the modern civil rights movement, Theoharis provides a revealing window into Parks’s
politics and years of activism. She shows readers how this civil rights movement radical sought—for
more than a half a century—to expose and eradicate the American racial-caste system in jobs, schools,
public services, and criminal justice.
“Historian Theoharis offers a complex portrait of a forceful, determined woman who had long been
active before the boycott she inspired and who had an even longer career in civil rights afterward.”

NAZISM AND wAR
By Richard Bessel
The Second World War was the defining event of the twentieth century, leaving millions dead and
redrawing the political map in ways that continue to affect nearly the entire human race. Unlike
previous territorial or political clashes, the war launched by Nazi Germany was an ideological one,
waged to wipe entire peoples and cultures from the face of the earth.
In Nazism and War, Richard Bessel, one of the preeminent authorities on the social and political
history of modern Germany, demonstrates how racial hatred was the driving force behind—and not a
by-product of—Nazism.
“Bessel’s basic premise—that wars past present, and future were at least as central to the Nazi ethos
as racism—is an illuminating one, correcting many a crude caricature. . . . Clear, engaging, and
quietly profound.” —Booklist

“Anyone with an interest in cultural history will revel in the book’s range and insights. Specialists
will savor the anecdotes; casual readers will enjoy the introduction to rich and exciting material.
Brilliant artistic output during a time of transformative upheaval never gets old, and this book

against Hitler’s war machine that culminated in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. In Isaac’s Army, Matthew
Brzezinski delivers the first-ever comprehensive narrative account of that struggle, following a group
of dedicated young Jews whose individual acts of defiance helped rewrite the ending of World War II.

LOGAVINA STREET: Lie and Death in a Sarajeo Neihborhood
By Barbara Demic
Logavina Street was a microcosm of Sarajevo, a six-block-long history lesson. For four centuries, it
existed as a quiet residential area in a charming city long known for its ethnic and religious tolerance.
On this street of 240 families—Muslims and Christians, Serbs and Croats—lived easily together, unified
by their common identity as Sarajevans. Then the war tore it all apart.
Award-winning journalist Barbara Demick tells the story of the Bosnian War through the lives of
ordinary citizens, who struggle with hunger, poverty, and sniper fire.
Logavina Street paints this misunderstood war and its effects in vivid strokes—at once epic and
intimate—revealing the heroism, sorrow, resilience, and uncommon faith of its people.

THE HELLENISTIC AGE: A Short History
By Peter green
The Hellenistic Age chronicles the years 336 to 30 BCE, a period that witnessed the overlap of two of
antiquity’s great civilizations, the Greek and the Roman. Peter Green’s far-ranging study covers the
prevalent themes and events of those centuries: the Hellenization, by Alexander’s conquests, of an
immense swath of the known world; the lengthy and chaotic partition of this empire by rival
Macedonian bands; and, finally, Rome’s moment of transition from republican to imperial rule. It is a
story of war and power-politics, and of the developing fortunes of art, science, and statecraft, spun by
an accomplished classicist with an uncanny knack for infusing life into the distant past, and applying
fresh insights that make ancient history seem alarmingly relevant.

uNCIvIL SOCIETY: 1989 and the Implosion of the Communist Establishment
By Stephen kotin • Contribtion by Jan T. gross
Twenty years ago, the Berlin Wall fell. In one of modern history’s most miraculous occurrences,
communism imploded. Now two of the foremost scholars of East European and Soviet affairs, Stephen
Kotkin and Jan T. Gross, drawing upon two decades of reflection, revisit this crash. In a crisp, concise,
unsentimental narrative, they employ three case studies—East Germany, Romania, and Poland—to
illuminate what led Communist regimes to surrender, or to be swept away in political bank runs.
“. . . Stephen Kotkin has written a brilliantly original account of the fall of the Soviet empire.”

church infrastructure. The book concludes with a searching assessment of how the Catholic faith will

COMMUNISM: A History
By Richard Pipes
At its heart, Communism is a history of the Soviet Union, the most comprehensive reorganization of
human society ever attempted by a nation-state. Richard Pipes explains the country’s evolution from
the 1917 revolution to the Great Terror and World War II, global expansion and the Cold War chess
match with the United States, and the regime’s decline and ultimate collapse.
With astonishing authority and clarity, Richard Pipes has fused a lifetime’s scholarship into a single,
focused history of Communism, from its hopeful birth as a theory to its death as a practice.
“It would be a good thing if every high school or college student in America were required to read

HITLER AND THE HOLOCAuST
By Robert S. wistrich
Hitler and the Holocaust is the product of a lifetime’s work by one of the world’s foremost authorities
on the history of anti-Semitism and modern Jewry. Robert S. Wistrich examines Europe’s long history
of violence against its Jewish populations, looks at the forces that shaped Hitler’s belief in a “satanic
Jewish power” that must be eradicated, and discusses the process by which Hitler gained power and
finalized his plans for mass genocide. He concludes by addressing the abiding legacy of the Holocaust
and the lessons that can be drawn from it.

enthralling city into a single brief volume would seem an impossible task. Yet acclaimed biographer

architecture, art, literature, and history that make London one of the most fascinating cities in the

ISLAM: A Short History
By karen Armstron
No religion in the modern world is as feared and misunderstood as Islam. It haunts the popular
Western imagination as an extreme faith that promotes authoritarian government, female oppression,
civil war, and terrorism. Karen Armstrong’s short history offers a vital corrective to this narrow view.
The distillation of years of thinking and writing about Islam, it demonstrates that the world’s fastest-
growing faith is a much richer and more complex phenomenon than its modern fundamentalist strain
might suggest.
“A valuable corrective to the hostile caricatures of Islam that circulate in the English-speaking

Historian and critic Christopher Benfey recounts the cross-pollination that came about during the

INvENTINg JAPAN: 1853–1964
By Ian Brma
Woodrow Wilson Institute Fellow Ian Buruma makes sense of the most fateful span of Japan’s history,
the period that saw as dramatic a transformation as any country has ever known. In the course of little
more than a hundred years from the day Commodore Matthew Perry arrived in his black ships, this
insular, preindustrial realm mutated into an expansive military dictatorship that essentially supplanted
the British, French, Dutch, and American empires in Asia before plunging to utter ruin, eventually
emerging under American tutelage as a pseudo-Western-style democracy and economic dynamo.

THE KOREAN WAR: A History
By Brce Cmins
For Americans, it was a discrete conflict lasting from 1950 to 1953. But for the Asian world, the Korean
War was a generations-long struggle that still haunts contemporary events. With access to new
evidence and secret materials from both here and abroad, including an archive of captured North
Korean documents, Bruce Cumings reveals the war as it was actually fought.
Elegantly written and blisteringly honest, The Korean War is, like the war it illuminates, brief,
devastating, and essential.

This story illuminates the captivating world of the late Renaissance—in this case its plagues, rem-
edies, and alchemy—through the life of Leonardo Fioravanti, a brilliant, forward-thinking, and utterly
unconventional doctor. Fioravanti’s marvelous cures and talent for self-aggrandizement earned him
the adoration of the people, the scorn of the medical establishment, and a reputation as one of the age’s
most colorful, combative figures. Written by Pulitzer Prize–nominated historian William Eamon, The
Professor of Secrets is meticulously researched and engagingly written. This gripping narrative will
appeal to students of the Renaissance, the development of science, and the history.

THE AMERICAS: A Hemispheric History
By felipe fernández-Armesto
The inhabitants of the landmass stretching from northern Canada to the southern tip of Argentina are
complexly bound together, yet these connections, from food to the spread of political ideas, are
generally ignored. In this groundbreaking and vividly rendered work, leading historian Felipe
Fernández-Armesto tells, for the first time, the story of the American hemisphere as a whole, showing
how it is impossible to understand North, Central, or South America in isolation, and looking instead
to the intricate common forces that continue to shape the region. With his trademark rigor, imagination,
and thematic breadth, Fernández-Armesto covers topics including commerce, religion, agriculture, the
environment, the slave trade, culture, and politics.
“Fernández-Armesto can personalize broad historical trends without sinking into triviality. . . .
History written at its best.” —Booklist

gANDHI: AN AuTOBIOgRAPHY: The Story o My Eperiments ith Trth
By Mohandas k. gandhi • forord by Sissela Bo
Mohandas K. Gandhi is one of the most inspiring figures of our time. In his classic autobiography, he
recounts the story of his life and how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which
propelled the Indian struggle for independence and countless other nonviolent struggles of the
twentieth century.
In a new Foreword, noted peace expert and teacher Sissela Bok urges us to adopt Gandhi’s “attitude of
experimenting, of testing what will and will not bear close scrutiny, what can and cannot be adapted to
new circumstances,” in order to bring about change in our own lives and communities.

NONVIOLENCE: The History o a Daneros Idea
By Mar krlansy • foreord by His Holines the Dalai Lama
In this groundbreaking, controversial, and definitive history, The New York Times bestselling author
Mark Kurlansky proposes that nonviolence is a technique that can speak truth to power to right social
injustice or end wars. Drawing twenty-five provocative lessons from history, he questions the necessity
of war and persuasively argues that even America’s major wars could have been avoided by nonvio-
lent means. In Nonviolence, Kurlansky offers a sweeping yet concise history of the nonviolent responses
to conflict from ancient Hindu times to today.

THE CRISIS OF ISLAM: Holy War and Unholy Terror
By Bernard Leis
In The Crisis of Islam, Bernard Lewis examines the historical roots of the resentments that dominate the
Islamic world today, and that are increasingly being expressed in acts of terrorism. Ranging widely
through thirteen centuries of history, Lewis looks at the theological origins of political Islam and takes
readers through the rise of militant Islam in Iran, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia.
“Inestimable . . . replete with the exceptional historical insight that one has come to expect from the
world’s foremost Islamic scholar.” —The Wall Street Journal
“It offers a long view in the midst of so much short-termism and confusing punditry. Lewis has
done us all—Muslim and non-Muslim alike—a remarkable service.”

DANgEROuS gAMES: The Uses and Abuses of History
By Mararet MacMillan
History is useful when it is used properly: to understand why we and those we must deal with
think and react in certain ways. It can offer examples to inform our decisions and guesses about the
consequences of our actions. But we should be wary of looking to history for dogmatic lessons. We
should distrust those who abuse history when they call on it to justify unreasonable claims to land, for
example, or restitution. Acclaimed historian Margaret MacMillan illustrates how dangerous history can
be in the hands of nationalistic or religious or ethnic leaders who use it to foster a sense of grievance
and a desire for revenge.
“MacMillan deftly maneuvers through time [in this] wide-ranging and provocative testament to
transparency as the best historical education.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“In this complex, closely argued text . . . field giant Renfrew sets forth quite a task, to sum up the
progress of prehistoric archaeology thus far and then explore current challenges.”

THE DISCOvERY Of JEANNE BARET
A Story of Science, the High Seas, and the First Woman to Circumnavigate the Globe
By glynis Ridley
The year was 1765. Eminent botanist Philibert Commerson had just been appointed to circumnavigate
the world. Jeanne Baret, Commerson’s young mistress and collaborator, disguised herself as a teenage
boy and signed on as his assistant, becoming the first woman to ever sail around the globe. The
Discovery of Jeanne Baret offers this forgotten heroine a chance to bloom at long last.
“Thrilling and incensing. . . . Woven throughout this gripping story are Ridley’s piquant insights
into eighteenth-century exploration, botany, taxonomy, biopiracy, and sexism. Baret could not have
asked for a more exacting and expressive champion. Ridley is incandescent in her passion for the
truth.” —Booklist (starred review)

millennia and, in doing so, attempts to answer the age-old question: what makes a city great? Kotkin
follows the evolution of the city from the early religious centers of Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and
China, to the imperial centers of the Classical era, through the rise of the Islamic city and the European
commercial capitals, ending with today’s post-industrial suburban metropolis.
“A compelling and original synthesis that belongs on the urbanist’s bookshelf with Lewis
Mumford, Peter Hall, and Fernand Braudel.”

There are more starving people in the world than ever before, while there are also more people who are

To find out how we got to this point and what we can do about it, Raj Patel launched a comprehensive
investigation into the global food network. What he found was shocking, from the false choices given
us by supermarkets to a global epidemic of farmer suicides, and real reasons for famine in Asia and
Africa. Yet he also found great cause for hope—in international resistance movements working to
create a more democratic, sustainable, and joyful food system.

corporations depend on but are trying their best to ignore. Bowe delivers a sobering look at the moral
costs of the cheap goods—from orange juice to cut-rate fashions—to which our economy has grown so
accustomed.
This is rich and vibrant reporting—not a polemic but a presentation of things as they are on the
underside of American commerce.

literature of freedom” and “the finest primer available for students of capitalism” in the Objectivist

THE COMPANY: A Short History of a Revolutionary Idea
By John Miclethait and Adrian wooldride
Economist editors John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge reveal the company to be one of history’s
great catalysts, for good and for ill, a mighty engine for sucking in, recombining, and pumping out
money, goods, people, and culture to every corner of the globe.
“The limited-liability joint-stock company is a very marvel of the modern world economy, a
historical force to rival religions, monarchies, and even states. The Company tells the colorful story
of its birth and maturation—and its pervasive social and cultural consequences—with rare
concision and flair.” —David M. Kennedy, Stanford University

THE gREAT INfLATION AND ITS AfTERMATH
The Past and Future of American Affluence
By Robert J. Samelson
With the financial upheavals over the last years, The Great Inflation and Its Aftermath is more relevant
now than ever before. Inflation, Robert Samuelson argues in this resonant book, is the single most
portant factor in this country’s economic health, and the story of how inflation spun out of control and
nearly devastated our position as a dominant global power is one of the great overlooked events
of the past few decades. If we are to understand the causes of the economic events of the last half
tury including the 2008 crash, and look for ways to create a stable financial system in the future, the
arguments that Samuelson makes are essential to these conversations.

primitive man’s cowrie shells to the electronic cash card, from the markets of Timbuktu to the New

fLATLAND: A Romance o Many Dimensions
By Edin A. Abbott
This highly original and entertaining short novel tells the story of A. Square, an inhabitant of the two-
dimensional world Flatland. After an overview of Flatland society, A. Square recounts how he was led
on a series of travels to Pointland, Lineland, and Spaceland. Through his encounters with these other
lands, A. Square realizes that there is more to the universe than the world he lives in.
Victorian clergyman and Shakespearean scholar Edwin A. Abbott penned this mathematical allegory
about the dawn of reason. Touching on themes of humanity’s insatiable quest for truth, authority’s
tendency to squash radical ideas born from this quest, and the necessity of curiosity, Flatland is an odd
and charming little book whose impact far surpasses its concise prose.

DARwIN’S gHOSTS: The Secret History of Evolution
By Rebecca Stott
A New York Times Book Review Notable Book (“100 Best Books”)
Soon after the publication of On the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin received a letter that accused him
of taking credit for a theory that had already been discovered. Realizing his error, Darwin tried to trace
all of the philosophers who had laid the groundwork for his theory, but found that history had already
forgotten them. Rebecca Stott goes in search of these ghosts, and the discovery of evolution.
“Stott brings Darwin himself to life. . . . [She] writes with a novelist’s flair. . . . Darwin and the
‘ghosts’ so richly described in Ms. Stott’s enjoyable book are the descendants of Aristotle and
Bacon and the ancestors of today’s scientists.” —The Wall Street Journal

THE MAN wHO PLANTED TREES
Lost Groves, Champion Trees, and an Urgent Plan to Save the Planet
By Jim Robbins
New York Times reporter Jim Robbins explains the importance of trees, including how they may help
save the planet. At the heart of this timely and evocative nonfiction work is the incredible story of
David Milarch, a Michigan nurseryman who embarked on a mission to locate “champion” trees, repro-
duce them, and spread their offspring around the world. The Man Who Planted Trees is both a testament
to one man’s successful efforts to save one of our most important, resounding calls to others to act.
“Absorbing, eloquent and loving. . . . While Robbins’s tone is urgent, it doesn’t compromise his
crystal-clear science. . . . Even the smallest details here are fascinating.”

Throughout history, scientists have come up with theories that just don’t seem to make sense. These we
call paradoxes. The paradoxes Al-Khalili offers are drawn chiefly from physics and astronomy and

newly coined category of “dwarf” planet.
Aheartfelt and personal journey, How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming is the book for anyone
who has ever imagined exploring the universe.
“Brown’s brisk, enjoyable How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming chronicles the whole saga
[of the demotion of Pluto] and, in the process, makes [its] sad fate easier to take. If we’ve lost a

COLOR: A NaturaÌ History of tbe PaÌette
By Victoria FinÌay
Discover the tantalizing true stories behind your favorite colors. For example: Cleopatra used saffron—
a source of the color yellow—for seduction; extracted from an Afghan mine, the blue “ultramarine”
paint used by Michelangelo was so expensive he couldn’t afford to buy it himself; and since ancient
times, carmine red—still found in lipsticks and Cherry Coke today—has come from the blood of
insects. These and other true stories from the history of color are explored in this accessible and lively
book.
“Loaded with fascinating tidbits, this portrait of colors and their histories will provide readers with
lots of conversation-starters.” —Boston Herald

ART HISTORY.
RENAISSANCE ART IN FRANCE: Tbe Invention of CÌassicism
By Henri Zerner
Harvard professor Henri Zerner focuses on one of the most dynamic and flamboyant periods in art
history, the Renaissance in France. Renaissance Art in France explains how the school of Fontainebleau,
in its exaggerated elegance and complex fantasies, combined French forms of medieval origin with the
Italianate decorative style. It quickly came to represent a high point in the development of Mannerism
and laid the groundwork for the invention of French Classicism. The volume showcases artists who
excelled in the fine arts such as court portraitist François Clouet and sculptor Jean Goujon, as well as
those working in decorative arts that also flourished during this period: tapestry, stained-glass
windows, printmaking, and metalwork.
