The Most Southern Place on Earth: The Mississippi Delta and the Roots of Regional Identity Audiobook

The Most Southern Place on Earth: The Mississippi Delta and the Roots of Regional Identity

Author: James C. Cobb Narrator: David Stifel Release Date: September 2021

'Cotton obsessed, Negro obsessed,' Rupert Vance called it in 1935. 'Nowhere but in the Mississippi Delta,' he said, 'are antebellum conditions so nearly preserved.' This crescent of bottomlands between Memphis and Vicksburg, lined by the Yazoo and Mississippi rivers, remains in some ways what it was in 1860: a land of rich soil, wealthy planters, and desperate poverty-the blackest and poorest counties in all the South. And yet it is a cultural treasure house as well-the home of Muddy Waters, B. B. King, Charley Pride, Walker Percy, Elizabeth Spencer, and Shelby Foote. Painting a fascinating portrait of the development and survival of the Mississippi Delta, a society and economy that is often seen as the most extreme in all the South, James C. Cobb offers a comprehensive history of the Delta, from its first white settlement in the 1820s to the present. Exploring the rich black culture of the Delta, Cobb explains how it survived and evolved in the midst of poverty and oppression, beginning with the first settlers in the overgrown, disease-ridden Delta before the Civil War to the bitter battles and incomplete triumphs of the civil rights era. In this comprehensive account, Cobb offers new insight into 'the most southern place on earth,' untangling the enigma of grindingly poor but prolifically creative Mississippi Delta.

Heidi By Johanna Spyri Presented by Voices of Today First published in 1881, the subtitle of the book reads 'It was written as a book 'for children and those who love children.'

The story follows her life as she falls in love with grandfather and he with her and the life of goat-herding that they share. Grandfather refuses to allow her to attend school in the small village below and quarrels ensue. Her young aunt returns to remove her from grandfather to live as a hired lady's companion to wealthy Clara, a wheelchair bound child, in Frankfurt.

Flashes of Creation: George Gamow, Fred Hoyle, and the Great Big Bang Debate Audiobook

Flashes of Creation: George Gamow, Fred Hoyle, and the Great Big Bang Debate

Author: Paul Halpern Narrator: David Stifel Release Date: August 2021

A respected physics professor and author breaks down the great debate over the Big Bang and the continuing quest to understand the fate of the universe. Today, the Big Bang is so entrenched in our understanding of the cosmos that to doubt it would seem crazy. But as Paul Halpern shows in Flashes of Creation, just decades ago its mere mention caused sparks to fly. At the center of the debate were Russian American physicist George Gamow and British astrophysicist Fred Hoyle. Gamow insisted that a fiery explosion explained how the elements of the universe were created. Attacking the idea as half-baked, Hoyle countered that the universe was engaged in a never-ending process of creation. The battle was fierce. In the end, Gamow turned out to be right -- mostly -- and Hoyle, along with his many achievements, is remembered for giving the theory the silliest possible name: "The Big Bang." Halpern captures the brilliance of both thinkers and reminds us that even those proved wrong have much to teach us about boldness, imagination, and the universe itself.

Empire of the Romans: From Julius Caesar to Justinian: Six Hundred Years of Peace and War, Volume 1 Audiobook

Empire of the Romans: From Julius Caesar to Justinian: Six Hundred Years of Peace and War, Volume 1

Author: John Matthews Narrator: David Stifel Release Date: August 2021

A wide-ranging survey of the history of the Roman Empire-from its establishment to decline and beyond Empire of the Romans, from Julius Caesar to Justinian provides a sweeping historical survey of the Roman empire. Uncommonly expansive in its chronological scope, this unique two-volume text explores the time period encompassing Julius Caesar's death in 44 BCE to the end of Justinian's reign six centuries later. Internationally-recognized author and scholar of Roman history John Matthews balances broad historical narrative with discussions of important occurrences in their thematic contexts. This integrative approach helps listeners learn the timeline of events, understand their significance, and consider their historical sources. Defining the time period in a clear, yet not overly restrictive manner, the narrative reflects contemporary trends in the study of social, cultural, and literary themes. Chapters examine key points in the development of the Roman Empire, including the establishment of empire under Augustus, Pax Romana and the Antonine Age, the reforms of Diocletian and Constantine, and the fall of the Western Roman Empire. Discussions of the Justinianic Age, the emergence of Byzantium, and the post-Roman West help listeners understand the later Roman world and its impact on the subsequent history of Europe.

The Beauty and the Sorrow: An Intimate History of the First World War Audiobook

The Beauty and the Sorrow: An Intimate History of the First World War

Author: Peter Englund Narrator: David Stifel Release Date: August 2021

An intimate narrative history of World War I told through the stories of twenty men and women from around the globe-a powerful, illuminating, heart-rending picture of what the war was really like. In this masterful book, renowned historian Peter Englund describes this epoch-defining event by weaving together accounts of the average man or woman who experienced it. Drawing on the diaries, journals, and letters of twenty individuals from Belgium, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Venezuela, and the United States, Englund's collection of these varied perspectives describes not a course of events but 'a world of feeling.' Composed in short chapters that move between the home front and the front lines, The Beauty and Sorrow brings to life these twenty particular people and lets them speak for all who were shaped in some way by the War, but whose voices have remained unheard.

America's Good Terrorist: John Brown and the Harpers Ferry Raid Audiobook

America's Good Terrorist: John Brown and the Harpers Ferry Raid

Author: Charles P. Poland Jr. Narrator: David Stifel Release Date: May 2021

John Brown is a common name, but the John Brown who masterminded the failed raid at Harpers Ferry was anything but common. His failed efforts have left an imprint upon our history, and his story still swirls in controversy. Was he a madman who felt his violent solution to slavery was ordained by Providence or a heroic freedom fighter who tried to liberate the downtrodden slave? These polar opposite characterizations of the violent abolitionist have captivated Americans. When Brown's characteristics are compared to the definition of terrorism as set forth by scholars of terrorism, he fits the profile. Nevertheless, today Brown is a martyred hero who gave his life attempting to terminate the evil institution of human bondage. Brown's violent method of using terrorism to accomplish this is downplayed or ignored, despite being labeled by historians as America's first terrorist. The modern view of Brown has unintentionally made him a 'good terrorist,' despite the repugnance of terrorism that makes the thought of a benevolent or good terrorist an oxymoron. This new biography covers Brown's background and the context to his decision to carry out the raid, a detailed narrative of the raid and its consequences for both those involved and America; and an exploration of the changing characterization of Brown since his death.

Winston Churchill and the Art of Leadership: How Winston Changed the World Audiobook

Winston Churchill and the Art of Leadership: How Winston Changed the World

Author: William Nester Narrator: David Stifel Release Date: February 2021

Many indeed, are the biographies of Winston Churchill, one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century. But what was that influence and how did he use it in the furtherance of his and his country's ambitions? For the first time, Professor William Nestor has delved into the life and actions of Churchill to examine just how skillfully he manipulated events to place him in positions of power. His thirst for power stirred political controversy wherever he intruded. Those who had to deal directly with him either loved or hated him. His enemies condemned him for being an egoist, publicity hound, double-dealer, and Machiavellian, accusations that his friends and even he himself could not deny. The House of Commons was Churchill's political temple where he exalted in the speeches and harangues on the floor and the backroom horse-trading and camaraderie. With his ability to think beyond mental boxes and connect far-flung dots, he clearly foretold events to which virtually everyone else was oblivious. Yet he was certainly not always right and was at times spectacularly wrong.
