American Insurgents, American Patriots : the revolution of the people - T. H. Breen
Call Number: 973.3 Breen 2010
ISBN: 9780809024797
Publication Date: 2011-05-10
"Before there could be a revolution, there was a rebellion; before patriots, there were insurgents. Challenging decades of received wisdom, T.H. Breen's strikingly original book explains how ordinary Americans-- most of them members of farm families living in small communities-- were drawn into a successful insurgency against imperial authority. This is the compelling story of our national political origins that most Americans do not know. It is a story of rumor, charity, vengeance, and restraint. American insurgents, American patriots reminds us that revolutions are violent events. They provoke passion and rage, a willingness to use violence to achieve political ends, a deep sense of betrayal, and a strong religious conviction that God expects an oppressed people to defend their rights. The American Revolution was no exception."--Jacket.

Grit : the power of passion and perseverance - Angela Duckworth
Call Number: 158.1 Duck 2016
ISBN: 9781501111105
Publication Date: 2016-05-03
Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, MacArthur genius grant recipient Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success. Rather, other factors can be even more crucial, such as identifying our passions and following through on our commitments. Drawing on her own story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently bemoaned her lack of smarts, Duckworth describes her winding path through teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not "genius" but a special blend of passion and long-term perseverance.

Incarnations : a history of India in fifty lives - Sunil Khilnani
Call Number: 954.0099 Khil 2016
ISBN: 9780374175498
Publication Date: 2016-09-20
"An entertaining and provocative account of India's past, written by one of the country's leading thinkers. For all of India's myths, its sea of stories and moral epics, Indian history remains a curiously unpeopled place. In Incarnations, Sunil Khilnani fills that space, recapturing the human dimension of how the world's largest democracy came to be. His trenchant portraits of emperors, warriors, philosophers, film stars, and corporate titans-- some famous, some unjustly forgotten-- bring feeling, wry humor, and uncommon insight to dilemmas that extend from ancient times to our own. As he journeys across the country and through its past, Khilnani uncovers more than just history. In rocket launches and ayurvedic call centers, in slum temples and Bollywood studios, in California communes and grimy ports, he examines the continued, and often surprising, relevance of the men and women who have made India--and the world--what it is. We encounter the Buddha, 'the first human personality'; the ancient Sanskrit linguist who inspires computer programmers today; the wit and guile of India's Machiavelli; and the medieval poets who mocked rituals and caste. In the twentieth century, Khilnani sets Gandhi and other political icons of the independence era next to actresses, photographers, and entrepreneurs. Incarnations is an ideal introduction to India--and a provocative and sophisticated reinterpretation of its history"-- Provided by publisher.

Using real-world sentences rather than invented ones, One Day in the Life of the English Language gives students the motivation to apply grammatical principles correctly and efficiently.

The Global Vatican : an inside look at the Catholic church, world politics, and the extraordinary relationship between the United States and the Holy See - Francis Rooney; John Negroponte (Foreword by)
Call Number: 327.456 Rooney
ISBN: 1442223618
Publication Date: 2013-11-01

Former U.S. ambassador to the Holy See Francis Rooney provides a comprehensive guide to the remarkable path the Vatican has navigated to the present day and a first-person account of what that path looks and feels like from an American diplomat whose experience lent him the ultimate insider's perspective. Part memoir, part historical lesson, The Global Vatican captures the braided nature of religious and political power and the complexities, battles, and future prospects for the relationship between the Holy See and the United States as both face challenges old and new."--Jacket.

The Middle East and South Asia 2016-2017 - Seth Cantey
Call Number: 956 Cantey
ISBN: 9781475828948
Publication Date: 2016-08-22
"This volume is designed to place in context the passionate controversies and emotional attachments of the two billion people who live, study, work, love, and die in the Middle East and South Asia. Understanding these regions means more than annually-updated details of the governments, politics, cultures, and economies of the twenty-four nations and assorted territories. Special chapters address significant issues of continuing international importance, including access to water, the role of oil, and the 2011 Arab spring. Both regions, after all, contain types of people misunderstood and often intensely disliked by others. Where religion intrudes on politics—the Afghan Taliban oppose educating girls, Hindu fanatics rampage in India, Iranian militiamen shoot demonstrators, Islamic extremists impose sharia, and Jewish Ultra-Orthodox send women to the back of the bus—readers bombarded with superficial news bites and slanted reporting might never sense the other accomplishments of these same societies. Islamic charities and societies bring relief to the impoverished, Israel’s scholars win Nobel prizes, and most Indians cherish long-standing religious toleration. The author of this volume attempts to let the reader draw conclusions from the evidence." -- from the publisher website.

The Sheriff of Ramadi - Dick Couch; John McCain (Foreword by)
Call Number: 956.7044345 Couch 2008
ISBN: 9781591141471
Publication Date: 2010-09-15
In this ground-breaking book, best-selling author and former U.S. Navy SEAL Dick Couch reports on the actions of the SEAL Task Unit during the Battle of Ramadi in Iraq s al-Anbar Province between 2005 and 2007. When he began his research, the author thought he would be writing about the SEALs courage in the face of a losing cause. Instead, he discovered a startling success story whose importance has gone unrecognized in the war against al-Qaeda. Couch argues that the lessons of Ramadi, with SEALs fighting alongside regular forces in an urban war zone, call for using this strategy more widely.

The Strong Gray Line : war-time reflections from the West Point class of 2004 - Cory Wallace (Editor); David L. Strickler (Contribution by); Brad Vance (Contribution by); Brett Walker (Contribution by); Jim Wilson (Contribution by); Michael Fish (Contribution by); Jordan Garrett (Contribution by); Nick Horton (Contribution by); Jay I
Call Number: 956.7044342 Wallace
ISBN: 1442249757
Publication Date: 2015-10-16
"To preserve the memory of their service during the tumultuous 11 years since their commissioning as Army officers, members of the West Point class of 2004 have written The Strong Gray Line. This class has suffered the highest casualty rate since those that graduated during the Vietnam War. In this book, fourteen of their classmates who lost their lives fighting the Global War on Terror are profiled to help the reader gain an understanding of the bond forged between classmates during their time at West Point, a bond that transcends the separation of death. In addition to the stirring profiles, thirteen personal essays detail some of the most brutal fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan in addition to the struggles endured by those on the home front. These stories range from visceral observations of combat to a wife's anxious wait for her husband to return home. Holistically, these stories define an emotional spectrum that enables the reader to connect not only with the experience of the class of 2004, but also with every man and woman who served their country in time of war. What separates The Strong Gray Line from other war memoirs is the illustration of the endurance of the bond forged at West Point. It is fitting that these exceptional young service members be remembered and revered, not only as examples of selfless and intrepid officership, but also as monuments to the thousands of fellow Americans who served alongside them." --Jacket flap.

William Tecumseh Sherman : in the service of my country : a life - James Lee McDonough
Call Number: 355.0092 McDon 2016
ISBN: 9780393241570
Publication Date: 2016-06-14
"A major new biography of one of America's most storied military figures. General Sherman's 1864 burning of Atlanta solidified his legacy as a ruthless leader. Yet Sherman proved far more complex than his legendary military tactics reveal. James Lee McDonough offers fresh insight into a man tormented by the fear that history would pass him by, who was plagued by personal debts, and who lived much of his life separated from his family. As a soldier, Sherman evolved from a spirited student at West Point into a general who steered the Civil War's most decisive campaigns, rendered here in graphic detail. Lamenting casualties, Sherman sought the war's swift end by devastating Southern resources in the Carolinas and on his famous March to the Sea. This meticulously researched biography explores Sherman's warm friendship with Ulysses S. Grant, his strained relationship with his wife, Ellen, and his unassuageable grief over the death of his young son, Willy. The result is a remarkable, comprehensive life of an American icon whose legacy resonates to this day." --Publisher description.

Arnhem - R. E. Urquhart

ISBN: 9781783832583
Publication Date: 2011-02-17
"Major-General Urquhart commanded the 1st British Airborne Division in Operation Market Garden, the greatest airborne assault of World War Two, the struggle to capture Arnhem and win control of the bridge across the lower Rhine. The story of the 1st Airborne Division at Arnhem involved not only an Airborne Corps of three divisions, but also the bulk of the British 2nd Army in Europe. General Urquhart has told the story of those fateful nine days clearly, frankly, and despite the terrible circumstances, not without humor. It ranks as an important work, describing an operation which opened with such high hopes and left its name forever as a feat of the highest endurance and valor"--Page 4 of cover

Confronting Al Qaeda: the Sunni awakening and American strategy in al Anbar - Martha L. Cottam; Joe W. Huseby; Bruno Baltodano (As told to)
Call Number: ONLINE EBRARY 956.7044342 Cottam 2016
ISBN: 9781442264861
Publication Date: 2016-03-16
Based on in-depth interviews with tribal Sheiks involved in the Awakening and their American military counterparts, Confronting al Qaeda is a study of decision-making processes and the political psychology of the Sunni Awakening in al Anbar. It traces the change in American military strategy that made the Awakening collaboration between the Sunni tribes and the U.S. forces possible. It explains how the evolution of the tribal leaders’ perspective and of the American military strategy led to defeat al Qaeda in al Anbar. The process of these changing mutual images is detailed as well as how the cooperation between groups led to further evolution of perceptions. Political and military realities urgently forced these perceptual and social identity shifts initially, but the process of cooperation and engagement accelerated these shifts through increasingly mutually beneficial cooperation and interaction during the battle with al Qaeda in Iraq

Hearts and Mines: with the Marines in Al Anbar : a story of psychological warfare in Iraq - Russell Snyder
Call Number: ONLINE EBRARY 956.70443 Snyder
ISBN: 9781612001173
Publication Date: 2012-05-08
"These are my memories of life as a member of one of the United States Army's three-man Tactical Psychological Operations Teams (TPTs). While attached in support of the U.S. Marine Corps' Third Battalion, Second Marines, and Third Battalion, Twenty-Fifth Marines, operating along the Euphrates river valley in western Iraq's Anbar desert during the spring and summer of 2005, I witnessed what was at the time some of the most vicious counterinsurgency fighting of Operation Iraqi Freedom since Fallujah. I do not claim to be a historian, or even to have been privy to the big picture of the war reserved for the generals and their staff. Nothing I did was heroic or changed the course of history or any battle. Mine was the perspective of a low-ranking sergeant, isolated from the media's reports and influenced by the stresses of fatigue, fear, and moral uncertainty. ... But as for the memories of one soldier who was there, what follows is what really happened."--From Preface

Women at War : Iraq, Afghanistan, and other conflicts - Scott Baron; James E. Wise, Jr
Call Number: ONLINE EBRARY 355.0092273 Wise
ISBN: 9781612514079
Publication Date: 2013-07-10
Today, women in all U.S. military services are involved in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. They serve as pilots and crewmen of assault helicopters, bombers, fighters, and transport planes, and are frequently engaged in firefights with enemy insurgents while guarding convoys, traveling in hostile territory, or performing military police duties. Like their male counterparts, they carry out their missions with determination and great courage. The advent of the insurgency war, which has no rear or front lines, has made the debate regarding women in combat irrelevant.
