Another side of Bob Dylan - a personal history on the road and off the tracks

"August 2014 marks 50 years since Bob Dylan released his remarkable fourth album, Another Side of Bob Dylan.

Rebel Souls - Walt Whitman and America's First Bohemians by Martin, Justin.

Rebel Souls - Walt Whitman and America's First Bohemians

The brilliant, rowdy circle included Walt Whitman, Edwin Booth, the comic Artemus Ward, and reached out to involve Emerson, Albert Bierstadt, and Mark Twain. Whitman towered over this circle w

Gaza - a history by Filiu, Jean-Pierre, author.

Gaza - a history

"Through its millennium-long existence, Gaza has often been bitterly disputed while simultaneously and paradoxically enduring prolonged neglect. Squeezed between the Negev and Sinai desert on the one hand and the Mediterranean Sea on the other, Gaza was contested by the Pharaohs, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Arabs, the Fatimids, the Mamluks, the Crusaders, and the Ottomans. Napoleon had to secure it in 1799 to launch his failed campaign on Palestine. In 1917, the Bri

Front porch politics - the forgotten heyday of American activism in the 1970s and 1980s by Foley, Michael S.

Front porch politics - the forgotten heyday of American activism in the 1970s and 1980s

"An on-the-ground history of ordinary Americans who took to the streets when political issues became personal. It is widely believed that Americans of the 1970s and '80s were exhausted by the upheavals of the '60s and eager to retreat to the private realm. When they did take action, it was mainly to express their disillusionment with government by supporting the right. In fact, as Michael Stewart Foley shows, neither of these assumptions is correct. On the community level, the 1970s and '80s saw
