Summary:

It was 1969. War and protest rattled the nation while the troops marched on. The warships set sail. For coming-of-age American boys, death seemed one hill away. By then, nearly 300 of them were coming home in boxes each week. They were young men caught in a war machine, one of chance, circumstance, and misfortune. In a tragedy of just the same, lost in the turmoil of what would become America's most unpopular war, lies a story buried 1,100 fathoms deep in the blue waters off Vietnam. In the middle of a dark night off the coast of Vietnam on June 3, 1969, the USS Frank E. Evans is rammed by a ship ten times her size, sending her forward half to the bottom of the South China Sea and into oblivion. Seventy-four Americans are killed in this mysterious collision. Three brothers from a small town in Nebraska are gone, as is the son of a chief who barely survived. Only one body is ever found. The truth is confined to a footnote of the Vietnam War. Buried in obscurity even today, as the 74 names of those killed are not on the Vietnam Wall in Washington, D.C. In American Boys, journalist Louise Esola has uncovered and assembled a powerful rebuttal, putting the ship and her men in the time and place that was Vietnam. Groundbreaking and astonishing in scope and intimate details, American Boys is a story of heartbreak and perseverance. It's the story of a shattering injustice, of love and healing, and of a great generation of those who fought and lost yet vowed to never forget, though their nation has.

Summary:

The Mother of All Booklists: The 500 Most Recommended Nonfiction Reads for Ages 3 to 103 is written for parents, grandparents, and teachers unfamiliar with the bewildering array of award and recommended reading lists. This book is a long overdue composite of all the major booklists. It brings together over 100 of the most influential book awards and reading lists from leading magazines, newspapers, reference books, schools, libraries, parenting organizations, and professional groups from across the country. The Mother of All Booklists is to reading books what the website Rotten Tomatoes is to watching movies—the ultimate, one-stop, synthesizing resource for finding out what is best. Mother is not the opinion of one book critic, but the aggregate opinion of an army of critics. Organized into five age group lists each with one hundred books—preschoolers (ages 3-5), early readers (ages 5-9), middle readers (ages 9-13), young adults (ages 13-17), and adults (ages 18+)—The Mother of All Booklists amalgamates the knowledge of the best English-language booklists in the United States, including a few from Canada and Great Britain. Each of the 500 books is annotated, describing the contents of the book and suggesting why the book is unique and important. Each includes a picture of the book cover.

Summary:

Pour un nouvel ordre économique international est le premier titre d’une nouvelle collection créée par l’Unesco : « Nouveaux défis au droit international ». Les ouvrages qui seront publiés dans cette collection traiteront souvent de questions controversées et chercheront à stimuler la réflexion sur une meilleure adaptation du droit international aux nouvelles exigences du monde contemporain. M. Mohammed Bedjaoui esquisse dans la première partie de l’ouvrage le profil de « l’ordre international de la misère et de la misère de l’ordre international » que notre monde a engendré et examine dans la seconde partie ce que pourraient être « le droit international du développement et le développement du droit international ». Cette étude tient compte de l’ensemble de la problématique actuelle : Que faut-il donc entendre par « nouvel ordre économique international » ? Quels sont les constats et les aspirations qui ont donné naissance au concept lui-même ? Quelles sont la portée et la signification de la crise actuelle ? Quels obstacles se dressent sur la voie de l’établissement du nouvel ordre économique international ? Quels sont les données ou les invariants ainsi que les paramètres dépendants qui livrent la physionomie des lignes de force et des rapports de puissance, changeants et renouvelés, qui conditionnent l’évolution vers de nouvelles étapes dans le progrès de l’humanité ? Quels sont les voies et moyens pour parvenir à l’instauration de cet ordre nouveau ? Est-ce qu’en particulier l’adaptation du système des Nations Unies constitue une condition nécessaire et suffisante pour l’établissement de ce nouvel ordre ?
