Summary

Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address is a powerful and poignant speech delivered by one of America's most influential presidents during a critical time in the nation's history. The address eloquently reflects Lincoln's literary style, characterized by its simplicity yet deep intellectual and emotional impact. Set in the context of the Civil War's final days, Lincoln addresses themes of reconciliation, forgiveness, and national healing, showcasing his profound wisdom and moral conviction. Through this address, Lincoln invites readers to reflect on the complexities of war and the importance of unity in moving forward as a nation. Abraham Lincoln, known for his leadership during the Civil War and his commitment to abolishing slavery, was deeply moved by the toll of the war on both the North and the South. His personal experiences and moral beliefs undoubtedly played a significant role in shaping the content and tone of his Second Inaugural Address. Lincoln's address serves as a timeless reminder of the power of compassion and understanding in times of division and conflict. I highly recommend Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address to anyone interested in American history, politics, or the power of words to inspire and unite a nation.

    During the early years of World War II in the Pacific theatre, against overwhelming odds, young American airmen flew the longest and most perilous bombing missions of the war. They faced determined Japanese fighters without fighter escort, relentless anti-aircraft fire with no deviations from target, and thousands of miles of over-water flying with no alternative landing sites.Finish Forty and Home, by Phil Scearce, is the true story of the men and missions of the 11th Bombardment Group as it fought alone and unheralded in the South Central Pacific, while America had its eyes on the war in Europe. The book opens with Sgt. Herman Scearce, the author's father, lying about his age to join the Army Air Corps at 16. The narrative follows Scearce through training and into combat with his new crewmates, including pilot Lt. Joe Deasy, whose last-minute transfer from training duty thrusts the new crew into the squadron commander's role. Inexperienced crews are pressed into combat with navigational training inadequate for the great distances flown over Pacific routes, and losses mount.Finish Forty and Home takes the listener into combat with B-24 Liberator bomber crews facing the perils of long missions against tiny Japanese-held island targets. After new crews assembled into a squadron on Hawaii, they are sent on a mission to bomb Nauru. Soon the squadron moves on to bomb Wake Island, Tarawa, and finally Iwo Jima. These missions bring American forces closer and closer to the Japanese home islands and precede the critical American invasions of Tarawa and Iwo Jima. The 42nd Squadron's losses through 1943 were staggering: 50 out of 110 airmen killed.Phil Scearce explores the context of the war and sets the stage for these daring missions, revealing the motivations of the men who flew them: to finish forty combat missions and make it home again. He based his story upon substantial research at the Air Force Historical Research Agency and the National Archives, interviews with surviving airmen, and interviews and correspondence with the survivors of men who were lost. His is the first book to document America's bomber offensive in the early days of the Pacific War.

    This book contains 6 short titles that all relate to philosophical and theoretical ideas. They are the following books: 
    Title 1: In this guide, you will learn how the skepticism movement has evolved over the past few centuries, what it is today, how it makes complete sense and how it differs from cynicism. These things are explained in a handful of pages, but the information you can get out of this, is well worth your time. 
    Title 2: We will also explore the concepts of criticism, parapsychology, the role of science in skepticism, and the subtle art of being positive while being skeptical. Skepticism helps us think critically and question statements and claims, which helps us get closer to the truth. 
    Title 3: Skepticism has been criticized, ironically, and optimism has been glorified beyond all reason. There are sub-cults in the self-help industry that will judge anyone who questions the claims of gurus, and there are many people who are afraid to doubt the things they are told. 
    Title 4: In today’s guide, we’ll discuss the nature of existentialism and nihilism, two co-existing philosophies that have embraced by many. Nietzsche and Kierkegaard play a major role in these movements, so their works will be quoted and explained. 
    Title 5: First, the six standard themes of existentialism will be explained. This will give you more insights in what it is, and how it is sub-divided into various issues that have been thought of by the great existentialist thinkers. 
    Next, we will clarify why gifted individuals are often struggling with depressive thoughts and existentialist questions about meaning, which is typical. 
    Title 6: In this book, you will learn more about the lives and theories of prominent existential philosophers and theorists, such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre, and others.

    “The book addresses chronologically the most striking reactions of the art world to the rise of military engagement in Vietnam then in Cambodia.” —Guillaume LeBot, Critique d’art   The Vietnam War (1964–1975) divided American society like no other war of the twentieth century, and some of the most memorable American art and art-related activism of the last fifty years protested U.S. involvement. At a time when Pop Art, Minimalism, and Conceptual Art dominated the American art world, individual artists and art collectives played a significant role in antiwar protest and inspired subsequent generations of artists. This significant story of engagement, which has never been covered in a book-length survey before, is the subject of Kill for Peace.   Writing for both general and academic audiences, Matthew Israel recounts the major moments in the Vietnam War and the antiwar movement and describes artists’ individual and collective responses to them. He discusses major artists such as Leon Golub, Edward Kienholz, Martha Rosler, Peter Saul, Nancy Spero, and Robert Morris; artists’ groups including the Art Workers’ Coalition (AWC) and the Artists Protest Committee (APC); and iconic works of collective protest art such as AWC’s Q. And Babies? A. And Babies and APC’s The Artists Tower of Protest. Israel also formulates a typology of antiwar engagement, identifying and naming artists’ approaches to protest. These approaches range from extra-aesthetic actions—advertisements, strikes, walk-outs, and petitions without a visual aspect—to advance memorials, which were war memorials purposefully created before the war’s end that criticized both the war and the form and content of traditional war memorials.  “Accessible and informative.” —Art Libraries Society of North America
