Description : Read Now The Longest Night by David J Eicher and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. like no other conflict in our history, the civil war casts a long shadow onto modern america," writes david eicher. in his compelling new account of that war, eicher gives us an authoritative modern single-volume battle history that spans the war from the opening engagement at fort sumter to lee's surrender at appomattox (and even beyond, to the less well-known but conclusive surrender of confederate general edmund kirby smith in galveston, texas, on june 2, 1865). although there are other one-volume histories of the civil war -- most notably james m. mcpherson's pulitzer prize-winning battle cry of freedom, which puts the war in its political, economic, and social context -- the longest night is strictly a military history. it covers hundreds of engagements on land and sea, and along rivers. the western theater, often neglected in accounts of the civil war, and the naval actions along the coasts and major rivers are at last given their due. such major battles as gettysburg, antietam, and chancellorsville are, of course, described in detail, but eicher also examines lesser-known actions such as sabine pass, texas, and fort clinch, florida. the result is a gripping popular history that will fascinate anyone just learning about the civil war while at the same time offering more than a few surprises for longtime students of the war between the states. the longest night draws on hundreds of sources and includes numerous excerpts from letters, diaries, and reports by the soldiers who fought the war, giving readers a real sense of life -- and death -- on the battlefield. in addition to the main battle narrative, eicher analyzes each side's evolving strategy and examines the tactics of lee, grant, johnston, sherman, and other leading figures of the war. he also discusses such militarily significant topics as prisons, railroads, shipbuilding, clandestine operations, and the expanding role of african americans in the war. the longest night is a riveting, indispensable history of the war that james mcpherson in the foreword to this book calls "the most dramatic, violent, and fateful experience in american history."

"the longest night provides a comprehensive and insightful look at our country's most fascinating election. the contributions from political insiders are utterly absorbing. sharply written and edited; an impressive collaboration."--susan estrich, author of sex and power "arthur jacobson and michel rosenfeld have provided a very important civic service. their collection of commentaries on the disputed presidential election of 2000 brings all the confusion and frenzy of that event into clear intellectual focus. on one level it documents the most lively and informed reaction to the legal aftermath of the election. but it does more. it contains a range of erudite and well-reasoned interpretations, not just of the law and court decisions, but also of political institutions, the constitutional history, and the election itself."--mary p ryan, author of civic wars: democracy and public life in the american city during the nineteenth century "the great strength of this book is its inclusion of international perspectives on the american presidential debacle of 2000. after reading the insights of commentators and scholars from france, italy, germany, and elsewhere, it becomes clear precisely why, like an aging humpty-dumpty, our patchwork set of elitist assumptions, idiosyncratic practices, and archaic democratic institutions came tumbling down in florida. it is too late simply to put humtpy-dumpty back together again. the longest night reminds us that the united states has much to learn from those countries that are boldly advandcing the future of democracy and leaving us in their dust."--lani guinier, coauthor of the miner's canary: enlisting race, resisting power, transforming democracy

"evocative and beautiful... flawlessly evokes the spirit of the old testament story," raves publishers weekly in a starred review. this dramatic adventure, set over 3,500 years ago, of a family that endures hardships and ultimately finds freedom is the perfect tool to help young children make sense of the origins of the passover traditions. from the hardcover edition.
