"War Capitalism" and the rise of the Empire of Cotton This book is not an alternative history of capitalism. According to Sven Becket, the author, it is capitalism's only authentic history. A history that the author argues has never been fully (or honestly) told. He thus sets about the task of correcting the myth that capitalism was the sole handiwork of a group of "self-made inventors and entrepreneurs," one that functioned best when governments got out of the way,

Birth Certificate or DNA, that is the Question? This a review of Joel Gilbert's DVD entitled: Dreams of my "real" father: A Story of Reds and Deception.

The Leaders of the American Revolution: Heroes or Villains? Here Alan Taylor, an award-winning American historian, in this book, "The Internal Enemy: Slavery and War in Virginia 1772-1832," gives a fully contextualized, nuanced treatment of the state of mind of our founding fathers on the troubling issue of slavery. Arguably, it confirms what University of Hustoon Historian, Gerald Horne has said about the American patriots, and about the American Revolution itself.

America: How to Create an Empire by fiat This is a review of the book, "The Course of Empire," by Bernard DeVoto. It is a novel about the struggles for empire during 17th and 18th century North America. It focuses on the 284 "missing years" between "first landing" in 1492, and the American revolution in 1776, a period that, except for the French-Indian War, and the revolution itself, gets scant attention in American History books.

One Drop -- A Story of one Family Journey through its American Racial History This is a review of Bliss Broyard's book "One Drop: My Father's Hidden Life -- A Story of Race and Family Secrets." As the subtitle suggests, the bulk of the book, and its most interesting parts, deal with the author's certifiably brilliant father, Anatole, a college poetry Professor, New York Times Critic, and a black man who spent the bulk of his life "passing for white."

A Book of Answers about American pre-history This book, entitled 1491, is one of a trilogy of books penned by Charles Mann. The books bracket 1492, the fateful year of "discovery." This book tells the story of what happened that year, the year before the European invasion. It is a revealing historical research travelogue -- overlain with, and guided by, a forensic-like Anthropological search for the truth about what actually happened.
