Happy Belated Anniversary


I hadn't realized we had been going at it for over one year now.  Our anniversary was May 5.  We started with Team of Rivals, and have logged over 240 posts and countless comments since then.  Thanks very much for all of your participation!

  3. Let them eat Cake!,Oh wait wrong revolution.It has been nice to come here and see civil discourse without the wackos and agenda bringers that took over Elba.Avrds I still haven't heard anything from HBC on the Apache book and it seems to be absent from the flyer this month.There is a shortage of it for some reason.

  4. "Let them eat Cake! Oh wait wrong revolution....." Yes that was the Reagan revolution!

    But as for the revolution here, people here love, read, and discuss books. Now that's revolutionary! What a great service Gintaras has done for us all.

    As for Summer Moon, it must be a best seller after that rave review. Probably sold more than the publishers anticipated. Might want to try Amazon, where it's only $16 (even they have some sort of a delay, though):

  6. Yes, it is great to have an outlet where you can learn, have fun, and exchange ideas without the usual @#$#@ that goes on in right wing forums. The one sad thing is that Bob W cannot participate because of his illness. Like you, I wish him a full and quick recovery. Let's hope we can all participate in this informative venue for a long time to come.

  7. "The Team of Rivals" discussion has had me on the lookout for other related books. I'm now reading Eric Foner's "Reconstruction, America's Unfinished Revolution: 1863-1877." It isn't a new publication by any means, but it's very good.

  8. That's an amazing book. As far as I know, it is still considered the gold standard on that topic. Foner is another one of my heroes.

  9. The Foner book is excellent. I would also recommend WEB Dubois' classic text on Reconstruction in the South, which was a prime source for Foner.
