Like No Other Time

Tom Daschle, the Majority Leader of the historic 107th Senate, presents a candid insider’s account of the workings of the U.S. government during two of the most tumultuous years in the nation’s history. The 107th Congress faced a time like no other in the life of the nation. This was the era of the first presidential election to be decided by the United States Supreme Court, the fifty-fifty Senate, the horror of September 11, the anthrax attacks on media and the government (including Daschle’s own office), the war on terrorism, corporate scandals that shook the economy, the inexorable move toward war with Iraq, and other dramatic events, all leading up to the historic midterm elections of 2002. Through it all, Senator Tom Daschle had, with the exception of the President, the most privileged view of these unfolding developments, both in front of and behind the closed doors of government. In Like No Other Time, Daschle offers a riveting account of his singular perspective on a time when the nation faced deadly and elusive external enemies and a level of domestic political contention rarely seen in American history. Senator Daschle is un-flinching in his impressions of the key political figures of our time from both parties. The result is an acutely perceptive assessment of how our government met—and sometimes did not meet—the challenges of a remarkable era. As it was during the years of the 107th Congress, the United States is once again at a critical and historic crossroads. Our choices, based on what we have learned from our recent past, will affect our future in profound ways. For Senator Daschle, the first and perhaps most important choice lies with what kind of representation and leadership we want in government. It is a choice between a political party with a core philosophical belief in the power of our collective will to confront these challenges through our government, and one dominated by a group of people who don’t like and don’t believe in government.

One Woman   S Story and a Love Like No Other

As human beings, we invariably do anything and everything but spend time with the self. We are lost in thought as we get distracted with all the flurry of daily living and earning our keep, believing it to be our purpose. As we look around us we see what appears to be a neverending cycle of conflict and turmoil. We have tried in countless ways to resolve these issues, but to no avail. We dont need more analysis or knowledge. The only thing that will save us is more wisdom. Wisdom is not something that can be acquired through book knowledge alone, but rather it is experienced from a place of inner stillness. In One Womans Story and a Love Like No Other, author Cate Moran shares how one can gain that inner stillness, unlocking the door to greater awareness. She helps you look at your life in a new way so you may realize your full potential. The memoir narrates Cates story of her love of wisdom and her search to find true love. She tells how she combed the globe only to find the man of her dreams when she least expected it. Then, through a series experiences, she shares how she gained a greater understanding of love. One Womans Story and a Love Like No Other explains how Cate lives simply and prefers to observe events as they unfold about her, helping her understand the meaning of life and to discover more of who she is from her lifes journey. It is through these experiences that a very different self emerges.

Like No Other: Exceptionalism and Nativism in Early Modern Japan probes the association of the early modern Japanese intellectual institution called Kokugaku with the phenomenon of nativism. Uncovering profound differences that cast serious doubt on this association, Mark McNally argues that what Japanologists viewed as nativistic about Kokugaku were actually more typical of what Americanists call exceptionalism. By severing the link between Kokugaku and nativism, he is able to explore within early modern Japanese history instances that were more genuinely nativistic, such as the upheaval associated with the intercultural encounters with Westerners during the 1850s and 1860s that culminated in the overthrow of Japan's last shogun. He also documents, for the first time in Japanese studies, the ways in which exceptionalism applies to Japanese history; not by focusing on either Nihonjinron or on Kokugaku—the connection between the former and exceptionalism is one that Americanists have already made, and the connection between the two Japanese institutions is one that Japanologists already know well—but by highlighting the central role of Confucianism. While Americans looked to the Judeo-Christian tradition for their exceptionalist ideas, their counterparts in early modern Japan looked to Confucianism, whose foundational connections to exceptionalism were perhaps stronger than any analogous tradition in the West. Despite the fact that exceptionalism and nativism occupy distinct positions within the historiographical traditions of both the United States and Japan, they also intersect and overlap in the latter case, which strongly suggests that this situation may also be true in other places, including the United States.

Two top experts parse the myths and realities about America’s perilous dance with its newest rival History is littered with the bodies of former great powers who failed to cope on and off the battlefield with the rise of a new power. China is fast becoming a true rival of the United States, and in this surprising, convincing book, two major foreign policy thinkers delve into the perilous consequences of this new dynamic. China now has the fourth largest economy, rivals Japan as a regional power in Asia, and controls an astonishing amount of our national debt. As the U.S. and China grapple with these unstable circumstances, unresolved issues–most likely Taiwan’s future status–could destroy the burgeoning partnership. In the coming contest with China, only smart decisions by our leaders will ensure that it’s fought with microchips and municipal bonds instead of nuclear bombs. Richard C. Bush (Fairfax, VA) is Director of the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution. Michael E. O’Hanlon (Bethesda, MD), a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, has written for numerous publications, including Slate, the New York Times, and Foreign Affairs. A frequent guest expert on radio and television, he is also the author of Brookings’s closely watched Iraq Index.

An Army Like No Other

"To understand Israel, you must first understand its army David Ben-Gurion, founder and first prime minister of the State of Israel, established that force in 1948 convinced that the 'whole nation is the army'. To his mind, the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) would be an army like no other - not merely an instrument of military might but the institution that would transform a diverse, mostly immigrant population into a nation. Haim Bresheeth-Zabner, a writer, academic and Israeli peace activist, charts the evolution of the IDF from the days of the Nakba, through conflicts with Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq, to its ongoing assaults on the vulnerable Palestinian population, culminating in the continuing attacks on Gaza. As he shows, the IDF has been the largest, richest and most influential institution in Israel's Jewish society and the Alma Mater of its social, economic, and political ruling class. Today, it is embedded in all aspects of daily life and identity in Israel, including the vast military-industrial complex that drives the national economy. An Army like No Other is an unflinching exploration of the war-driven origins of the Israeli state as well as the on-going story of Israeli militarism."--

The Story of B

From the author of the critically acclaimed, award-winning bestseller Ishmael and its sequel, My Ishmael, comes a powerful novel with one of the most profound spiritual testaments of our time “A compelling ‘humantale’ that will unglue, stun, shock, and rearrange everything you’ve learned and assume about Western civilization and our future.”—Paul Hawken, author of The Ecology of Commerce Father Jared Osborne has received an extraordinary assignment from his superiors: Investigate an itinerant preacher stirring up deep trouble in central Europe. His followers call him B, but his enemies say he’s something else: the Antichrist. However, the man Osborne tracks across a landscape of bars, cabarets, and seedy meeting halls is no blasphemous monster—though an earlier era would undoubtedly have rushed him to the burning stake. For B claims to be enunciating a gospel written not on any stone or parchment but in our very genes, opening up a spiritual direction for humanity that would have been unimaginable to any of the prophets or saviors of traditional religion. Pressed by his superiors for a judgement, Osborne is driven to penetrate B’s inner circle, where he soon finds himself an anguished collaborator in the dismantling of his own religious foundations. More than a masterful novel of adventure and suspense, The Story of B is a rich source of compelling ideas from an author who challenges us to rethink our most cherished beliefs.

In a Place Like No Other

Like so many refugees from the social and political turmoil of 1960's America, Frank Noal heads out looking for a new sense of self and place. He emigrates to Gloucester, Massachusetts, the world renowned fishing port, and works as a part time maintenance man and bartender at what remains of the North Shore's last grand hotel, Rackliffe House located on Rocky Neck. Here, Frank becomes enamored of Donna Pearce, a madcap expressionist painter, and involved in a volatile and voluble affair with the Gloucester native. As their relationship develops amidst the eclectic mix of artists, fishermen, poets and tourists frequenting the subterranean bar at Rackliffe House, it becomes apparent to both Frank and Donna that Jack Carson, the hotel's mismanager, the son of Senator Maynard Carson, and Frank's old college roommate, is conducting other business in an illegal and illicit fashion. With the assistance of their friend, the avuncular gay desk clerk, Harley Fenton, they finally uncover the facts regarding Jack's import-export endeavors.As important as the driving forces - the romance of a street savvy independent woman and an obtuse highly educated bartender and the mystery of Jack's convoluted misdeeds - the book speaks to the rampant social dysfunction of the 1970's and the sanctuary offered by the natural and built beauty of places like the world famous fishing port. It relates a time when so many baby boomers experienced a dramatic sense of loss and engaged life courses they never could have imagined. Spiced with the allegories of Frank's boyhood friend, an Abenaki storyteller, the humor and history of Donna Pearce, and the poetry of a beleaguered Viet Nam vet with a head full of schrapnel, the story winds to a bittersweet conclusion as the scene is revisited after the dot com debacle and the corporate scandals of the early Twenty First Century. Please note: The author, Ed Touchette, is a nationally recognized artist and a graduate of the School of Architecture at R.P.I. His work is featured on the cover and ten block prints relating to the architectural history of Gloucester, an integral part of the story, decorate the interior of the book.

Global West  American Frontier

This thoughtful examination of a century of travel writing about the American West overturns a variety of popular and academic stereotypes. Looking at both European and American travelers’ accounts of the West, from de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America to William Least Heat-Moon’s Blue Highways, David Wrobel offers a counter narrative to the nation’s romantic entanglement with its western past and suggests the importance of some long-overlooked authors, lively and perceptive witnesses to our history who deserve new attention. Prior to the professionalization of academic disciplines, the reading public gained much of its knowledge about the world from travel writing. Travel writers found a wide and respectful audience for their reports on history, geography, and the natural world, in addition to reporting on aboriginal cultures before the advent of anthropology as a discipline. Although in recent decades western historians have paid little attention to travel writing, Wrobel demonstrates that this genre in fact offers an important and rich understanding of the American West—one that extends and complicates a simple reading of the West that promotes the notions of Manifest Destiny or American exceptionalism. Wrobel finds counterpoints to the mythic West of the nineteenth century in such varied accounts as George Catlin’s Adventures of the Ojibbeway and Ioway Indians in England, France, and Belgium (1852), Richard Francis Burton’s The City of the Saints (1861), and Mark Twain’s Following the Equator (1897), reminders of the messy and contradictory world that people navigated in the past much as they do in the present. His book is a testament to the instructive ways in which the best travel writers have represented the West.

Wendell Berry  Essays 1993 2017  LOA  317

The second volume of the Library of America's definitive two-volume selection of the nonfiction writings of our greatest living advocate for sustainable culture. Writing with elegance and clarity, Wendell Berry is a compassionate and compelling voice for our time of political and cultural distrust and division, whether expounding the joys and wisdom of nonindustrial agriculture, relishing the pleasure of eating food produced locally by people you know, or giving voice to a righteous contempt for hollow innovation. He is our most important writer on the cultural crisis posed by industrialization and mass consumerism, and the vital role of rural, sustainable farming in preserving the planet as well as our national character. Now, in celebration of Berry's extraordinary six-decade-long career, Library of America presents a two-volume selection of his nonfiction writings prepared in close consultation with the author. In this second volume, forty-four essays from ten works turn to issues of political and social debate--big government, science and religion, and the meaning of citizenship following the tragedy of 9/11. Also included is his Jefferson Lecture to the National Endowment for the Humanities, "It All Turns on Affection" (2012). Berry's essays remain timely, even urgent today, and will resonate with anyone interested in our relationship to the natural world and especially with a younger, politically engaged generation invested in the future welfare of the planet.
