Becoming a U.S. Citizen also shows you how to ask for a reduced fee or take advantage of special exceptions if you have a disability, are in the military, or are the spouse of a U.S. citizen. The 9th edition is updated with the latest laws, procedures, and government policies. It includes sample forms, handy checklists, and a study guide to the citizenship exam. IMPORTANT UPDATE Readers should take note that a new version of the Form N-400 application for citizenship came out in September 2019, subsequent to this book's printing. Fortunately it's almost identical: the same questions in the same order. Thus the instructions in Nolo's book are still valid. However, please take note of a printing error in this ninth edition. While the instructions correctly explain that only certain types of people can safely answer "No" to any of Questions 45-50 in Part 12 of the form (asking about things like support for the Constitution and willingness to serve in U.S. armed forces), and that most people should answer "Yes" to all, the sample form shows "X" marks in the "No" column. Readers should disregard this portion of the sample. For more info check the update here: https://www.nolo.com/legal-updates/new-n-400-naturalization-application-form-required-by-uscis.html

The life of Catherine I , Empress of Russia, was said by Voltaire to be nearly as extraordinary as that of Peter the Great himself. Although there are no documents to confirm the date or place of her birth, it is thought that Marta of Muscovy came from Lithuanian stock and was one of four children of a Catholic peasant, Samuel Skavronski. When her parents died of the plague while she was still a young child, the family scattered and Marta was raised by a Lutheran pastor and educator, Johann Ernst Gluck, who was the first to translate the Bible into Latvian. As a member of the Gluck family, Marta was never taught to read or write, but was raised to do what all peasant women of that era were born to do -- laundry, cleaning, caring for children, tending and feeding animals, and cooking. In these as in all things, Marta was not ordinary. Energetic, compassionate, charming, and wise, Marta gradually rose from housekeeper of a rectory to housekeeper of a nation. Catherine met Peter through one of his friends and soon became his mistress. Underneath her gentle exterior was an astute woman with penetrating insights and she understood his character -- a man rent by a thousand threats, loyalties, hatreds, fears, friendships, and genius, not common in any situation or in any character -- and over time, he became increasingly dependent upon her. She traveled everywhere with him, campaigning by his side and sharing all the hardships of the Tsar's life. Challenged by the powerful forces that were changing the face of Europe, together Catherine and Peter rode the cusp to greatness. Catherine and Peter later married secretly and had twelve children, two of whom survived into adulthood. Their daughter, Elizabeth, became Empress Elizabeth I and regularly whipped Frederick the Great and all of the tall Cossacks in her own army. When Peter died without naming an heir, Catherine's candidacy for the throne was supported by the guards and by several powerful and important individuals. As a result, Catherine was almost immediately proclaimed Empress of Russia. Marta of Muscovy is an impressive biography that pays tribute not just to Marta, but to the people and spirit of Russia.

With this masterful work, Louis A. Perez Jr. transforms the way we view Cuba and its relationship with the United States. On Becoming Cuban is a sweeping cultural history of the sustained encounter between the peoples of the two countries and of the ways that this encounter helped shape Cubans' identity, nationality, and sense of modernity from the early 1850s until the revolution of 1959. Using an enormous range of Cuban and U.S. sources--from archival records and oral interviews to popular magazines, novels, and motion pictures--Perez reveals a powerful web of everyday, bilateral connections between the United States and Cuba and shows how U.S. cultural forms had a critical influence on the development of Cubans' sense of themselves as a people and as a nation. He also articulates the cultural context for the revolution that erupted in Cuba in 1959. In the middle of the twentieth century, Perez argues, when economic hard times and political crises combined to make Cubans painfully aware that their American-influenced expectations of prosperity and modernity would not be realized, the stage was set for revolution.

Could a witch hunt happen again in Salem? For readers of Deborah Harkness's A Discovery of Witches, New York Times bestselling author of The Lace Reader Brunonia Barry returns to Salem with this spellbinding new thriller, a complex brew of suspense, seduction and murder. When a teenage boy dies suspiciously on Halloween night, Salem's chief of police, John Rafferty, wonders if there is a connection between his death and Salem’s most notorious cold case, a triple homicide dubbed "The Goddess Murders," in which three young women, all descended from accused Salem witches, were slashed on Halloween night in 1989. He finds unexpected help in Callie Cahill, the daughter of one of the victims newly returned to town. Neither believes that the main suspect, Rose Whelan, respected local historian, is guilty of murder or witchcraft. But exonerating Rose might mean crossing paths with a dangerous force. Were the women victims of an all-too-human vengeance, or was the devil raised in Salem that night? And if they cannot discover what truly happened, will evil rise again?
