Ford.' Entering the White House unelected after the devastating Watergate scandal, Ford worked to erase the division between the political parties and move America in a more positive, more world-conscious direction. Drawing on exclusive interviews with Ford and previously unpublished documents, this insightful biography captures the true nature of a man many saw as bumbling, but who, in reality, played a key role in advancing American interests.

    “Spider, we could have marched, we could have protested forever, but if it weren’t for guys like you, it would have been for nothing. The whole world saw your pictures. That’s why the Voting Rights Act passed.”—Martin Luther King, 1965“Spider Martin, more than any other photographer of our time, has used his camera to document the struggle for civil rights and social change in the State of Alabama. . . . In viewing Spider’s collection, one is literally walking through the pages of American history.”—John Lewis, 1996“It is largely because of [Martin’s] talent that we, as a people and a nation, so vividly remember ‘Bloody Sunday.’ Although violence broke out at many other places, and on many other days, the images from this critical day are forever emblazoned in the public consciousness.”—Andrew Young, 1992On March 7, 1965, six hundred people led by John Lewis, chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and Hosea Williams of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, set out to march from Selma, Alabama, to the state capital of Montgomery to demand the right to vote. The march ended violently on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, as Alabama state troopers beat and gassed the unresisting marchers. But images of “Bloody Sunday” seared the national conscience and helped galvanize the passage of the Voting Rights Act later that year.Spider Martin captured many indelible images of Bloody Sunday as a photojournalist for theBirmingham News. His photographs of the Selma marches and the civil rights struggle were seen all over the world, appearing in such publications asTime, Life, Der Spiegel, Stern, the Saturday Evening Post, andParis Match. Drawn from Martin’s archive at the Briscoe Center for American History, this book gathers several dozen of the most powerful and poignant images, many of which have never been published, for the first time in a single volume. A lasting testament to the courage of the civil rights generation, they also reveal a rookie photographer’s determination to bear witness to a movement that transformed the American nation.

    "The famous--and infamous--Nixon White House tapes that reveal for the first time President Richard Nixon uncensored, unfiltered, and in his own words President Nixon's voice-activated taping system captured every word spoken in the Oval Office, CabinetRoom, and other key locations in the White House, and at Camp David--3,700 hours of recordings between 1971 and 1973. Yet less than 5 percent of those conversations have ever been transcribed and published. Now, thanks to professor Luke Nichter's massiveeffort to digitize and transcribe the tapes, the world can finally read an unprecedented account of one of the most important and controversial presidencies in U.S. history. The Nixon Tapes offers a selection of fascinating scenes from the year Nixon opened relations with China, negotiated the SALT I arms agreement with the Soviet Union, and won a landslide reelection victory. All the while, the growing shadow of Watergate and Nixon's political downfall crept ever closer. The Nixon Tapes provides a never-before-seen glimpse into a flawed president's hubris, paranoia, and political genius"--

    Theodore Roosevelt is known for many progressive programs and initiatives; however, none is more far-reaching and important than his conservation effort. Roosevelt set aside more than 230 million acres of wild America for posterity between 1901 and 1909, and his legacies led to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, passage of the Antiquities Act, and the salvage of Devils Tower, the Grand Canyon and the Petrified Forest. Now, in 'The Wilderness Warrior,' author Douglas Brinkley draws from never-before-published materies to examine the environmental efforts of our 'naturalist president.' This is a captivating look at Roosevelt's astounding environmental achievements.
