This book traces the origin of the forces and personalities that brought about the Spanish Inquisition and its impact on the larger world. It dwells extensively on the causes and principal figures of the Protestant Reformation and explains how those attitudes came to influence the evolution of modern American politics and bigotry. A careful reading of this narrative explains how political and religious leaders, often being somewhat interchangeable, have been able to devise "enemies" that can be used to convince sufficient of the populace to elect or retain in high office whose who portray themselves as opposed to such "enemies"; ignoring, in so doing, the sage advice of Benjamin Franklin that "those who would sacrifice essential liberties for a little temporary security, deserve neither liberty nor security."

Germany's merchant marine fleet -- the second largest in the world prior to 1914 -- played an unintended but decisive role in that nation's defeat in World War I. There were those ships that went to war for the Kaiser on the high seas, those that stayed at home or otherwise played no significant part, and those that were commandeered (mostly in 1917 and by the United States) and used against Germany. This is a well illustrated history, both practical and romantic, of the association each ship may have had with famous people and events of the war, and of the fates of the ships that comprised that fleet.

William Putnam's book chronicles the history of two important routes through the Alps, which are devoted to treasuring the history of Mont Cenis and the Great Saint Bernard passages. Both of these passes were prominently and frequently used by the Romans in establishing and maintaining their empire. It is surmised that Hannibal and his troops found elephant-friendly passages through the Mont Cenis corridor. Both passes were adorned with hospices/shelters near their crest and both now have been bypassed by modern tunnels. Despite these similarities, their historic prominence derives from distinctly different events and factors. "There is no passage of the Alps that affords to the traveler greater pleasure, either in the enjoyment or the recollection of his journey to Italy, than that by the Great Saint Bernard. Beside the wildness of this alpine pass, and the beauty of the valley of Aosta, through which the road (down) to Turin continues after it leaves the mountains, the kind reception that he experiences from the religious community at the hospice on the summit of the Saint Bernard, is remembered as long as he can be grateful for the devotion that induces these excellent men to offer the traveler their welcome, and spread for him their hospitality in the wilderness." Herein lies the histories of these passes and stories of many travelers among the Alps -- told as much as possible in their own words.

The book that sparked a marketing revolution. "This is a subversive book. It says that the marketer is not--and ought not to be--at the center of successful marketing. The customer should be. Are you ready for that?" --From the Foreword by Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point. Counter to traditional marketing wisdom, which tries to count, measure, and manipulate the spread of information, Seth Godin argues that the information can spread most effectively from customer to customer, rather than from business to customer. Godin calls this powerful customer-to- customer dialogue the ideavirus, and cheerfully eggs marketers on to create an environment where their ideas can replicate and spread. In lively detail, Godin looks at the ways companies such as PayPal, Hotmail, GeoCities, even Volkswagen have successfully launched ideaviruses. He offers a "recipe" for creating your own ideavirus, identifies the key factors in the successful spread of an ideavirus (powerful sneezers, hives, a clear vector, a smooth, friction-free transmission), and shows how any business, large or small, can use ideavirus marketing to succeed in a world that just doesn't want to hear it anymore from the traditional marketers.

Joe De Falco, a baby boomer, is born to a recently widowed mother after his father is killed in action near the end of World War II. A first-generation Italian-American, he is raised in a traditional Italian home where he comes under the influence of two very different uncles. One, Uncle Tony, is a straight, no-nonsense war hero who believes that institutions such as religion, government, the military, and business are worthy of trust and confidence. The other, Uncle Sal, is a slick, opportunistic, con-artist who believes in crime. As Joe moves through various stages of his life, he carries the conflicting influences of both uncles. Joe, often disillusioned by his own experiences, grows increasingly skeptical of institutions he once felt were trustworthy. Finally, as he confronts the biggest crisis in his life, he draws on lessons learned from his very different uncles.
