Sister Revolutions from the Author: Susan Dunn. What the two great modern revolutions can teach us about democracy today. In 1790, the American diplomat and politician Gouverneur Morris compared the French and American Revolutions, saying that the French "have taken Genius instead of Reason for their guide, adopted Experiment instead of Experience, and wander in the Dark because they prefer Lightning to Light." Although both revolutions professed similar Enlightenment ideals of freedom, equality, and justice, there were dramatic differences. The Americans were content to preserve many aspects of their English heritage; the French sought a complete break with a thousand years of history. The Americans accepted nonviolent political conflict; the French valued unity above all. The Americans emphasized individual rights, while the French stressed public order and cohesion. Why did the two revolutions follow such different trajectories? What influence have the two different visions of democracy had on modern history? And what lessons do they offer us about democracy today? In a lucid narrative style, with particular emphasis on lively portraits of the major actors, Susan Dunn traces the legacies of the two great revolutions through modern history and up to the revolutionary movements of our own time. Her combination of history and political analysis will appeal to all who take an interest in the way democratic nations are governed.

Gps For America from the Author: Abel Gashe. "The American Union is imperfect. But it is certainly motioning towards a more perfect union." It is this foundational thesis in the fulfillment of the American vision that this book focuses on. By affording an integrated and holistic approach, the book shows that the American dynamics is transformational living phenomenon framed on four major paradigms: that America is a land of freedom; that America is a land of opportunity; that America is impregnated with inertia within it that propels it to "repair its faults"; and that the nation has been moving to a higher ground in its motion with a concerted effort of its people as one (E pluribus Unum) to build a more perfect Union. A pragmatic but positive outlook on the American reality in the bountiful land by a first generation immigrant from Gojjam, Ethiopia, the author tries to help the reader develop a generic framework in understanding the evolving American reality since the founders took the bold step in 1776 to write an audacious proposal that "all men are created equal," endowed by the creator with "inalienable rights." The analysis in the book begins by framing the constitutional bases of the nation as a four dimensional compass. Using what he terms as the American GPS, he leads the reader to have a snapshot on the structure of American government, citizenship, church and state, legal, economic, political and foreign policy issues to show that in fact what is manifesting in the American socio-political topology is not a random act but an in-built, systemic transfiguration in creating the opportunity for all children of Adam to realize their God given inalienable rights, being Geezans (freely roaming citizens of the universe) in fulfilling the vision of the nation. After reading this book, the reader will never waste time in random thoughts about the American ever unfolding reality. By all accounts America is an emergent and noble idea whose better days are yet to come. That is the projection whose totality can be meaningfully captured through a living compass: The American GPS!

America S Silver Age from the Author: Gerald White Johnson. "In a book as remarkable for its exuberant spirit as for its scholarly and distinguished prose, Gerald Johnson has brought gloriously alive the most brilliant period of our nation's history. America's Silver Age saw the country settling down after the stormy years of its founding, testing certain ideas and establishing policies which gave the government its permanent form. And the three men, so strangely dissimilar, who were chiefly responsible for the character of political events were the great triumvirate. Henry Clay, a pestilential fellow, a man of evil fame, but loved as few of his countrymen have been loved. John C. Calhoun, above everything correct, the very incarnation of the wrath of God. Daniel Webster, simple and direct, the contented debtor, the eloquent poet, the servant of big business. None of these men attained the presidency, but they refashioned the republic and determined certain American principles which endure to this day. Not least among their accomplishments, they determined the outcome of the Civil War. By stressing those events which can be defined as statecraft rather than politics, Gerald Johnson does full justice to the stature of his subjects, and incidentally draws startling parallels between Amerca's Silver Age and our own troubled times." --Taken from book jacket flap.
