General William C. Westmoreland has long been derided for his failed strategy of ´´attrition´´ in the Vietnam War. Historians have argued that Westmoreland´s strategy placed a premium on high ´´body counts´´ through a ´´big unit war´´ that relied almost solely on search and destroy missions. Many believe the US Army failed in Vietnam because of Westmoreland´s misguided and narrow strategy. In a groundbreaking reassessment of American military strategy in Vietnam, Gregory Daddis overturns conventional wisdom and shows how Westmoreland did indeed develop a comprehensive campaign which included counterinsurgency, civic action, and the importance of gaining political support from the South Vietnamese population. Exploring the realities of a large, yet not wholly unconventional environment, Daddis reinterprets the complex political and military battlefields of Vietnam. Without searching for blame, he analyzes how American civil and military leaders developed strategy and how Westmoreland attempted to implement a sweeping strategic vision. Westmoreland´s War is a landmark reinterpretation of one of America´s most divisive wars, outlining the multiple, interconnected aspects of American military strategy in Vietnam-combat operations, pacification, nation building, and the training of the South Vietnamese armed forces. Daddis offers a critical reassessment of one of the defining moments in American history. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Yen.

Includes If Beale Street Could Talk, now a major motion picture directed by Barry Jenkins. The Library of America completes its edition of the collected fiction of the literary voice of the Civil Rights era with this volume gathering three revealing later works of the 1960s and ´70s. With such landmark novels as Go Tell It on the Mountain, Giovanni´s Room, and the essay collections Notes of a Native Son and The Fire Next Time, James Baldwin established himself as the indispensable voice of the Civil Rights era, a figure whose prophetic exploration of the racial and sexual fissures in American society raised the consciousness of American readers. But by the late 1960s and ´70s many regarded Baldwin as being out of sync with the political and social currents transforming America: too integrationist for Black Arts Movement writers and others on the Left, yet too ´´pessimistic´´ for many white readers, and as a result his later novels have never received the consideration given his earlier fiction. Sober in outlook but ambitious in scope, these works show Baldwin responding with his signature passion-for music, for justice, for life-and searching intelligence to the new realities of a rapidly changing cultural landscape, as the Movement era gives way to the age of identity politics that we still live in today. This culminating volume in the Library of America edition of his fiction illustrates how Baldwin continues to be relevant in twenty-first-century America, especially in his dramatizing of the unequal treatment of black men by the police and the justice system, his nuanced depictions of the black family, and his explorations of sexuality. LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation´s literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America´s best and most significant writing. The Library of America series includes more than 300 volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1,000 pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, and ribbon markers, and are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries.
Over Our Heads, by Rulon Stacey, points to good intentions and government interference. Costs continue to soar, and Americans already crippled by a sluggish economy struggle to pay escalating insurance premiums. Politicians, entertainers, and other public figures regularly demonize healthcare professionals as the ones who created this situation through either greed or mismanagement. Meanwhile, it seems as though government solutions just make things worse, and the problems keep piling up. How did we get to this point? The roots of the problem are inseparable from the solution. Government intervention, meant to make healthcare more accessible and affordable, has instead created a system so convoluted and complex that we can no longer keep up with current policy. This audiobook is Stacey´s attempt to describe, in a concise and relatable way, where our national healthcare policy went wrong. His analogy centers on a grocery store in the fictional town of Capital Springs and details what happens when the city government decides to issue food vouchers in order to help the community s poor and then gradually begins to reduce their reimbursement. As the mayor tinkers with the program, the results of his actions lead to higher prices, inadequate distribution, and a situation analogous to where healthcare finds itself right now. The book ends with the election of an even more generous mayor and a grim prediction of what will happen to the industry if current public policy remains unchanged. This book will be welcomed by healthcare professionals searching for a way to tell their story, political reformers building a case for change, students seeking a defined case study on the healthcare cost crisis, and citizens seeking insights on how we got so far in over our heads and where we are likely to end up. 1.

Here, in a Library of America volume edited by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison, is the fiction that established James Baldwin´s reputation as a writer who fused unblinking realism and rare verbal eloquence. His first novel, Go Tell It on the Mountain (1953), tells the story, rooted in Baldwin´s own experience, of a preacher´s son coming of age in 1930´s Harlem. Ten years in the writing, its exploration of religious, sexual, and generational conflicts was described by Baldwin as ´´an attempt to exorcise something, to find out what happened to my father, what happened to all of us.´´ Giovanni´s Room (1956) is a searching, and in its day controversial, treatment of the tragic self-delusions of a young American expatriate at war with his own homosexuality. Another Country (1962), a wide-ranging exploration of America´s racial and sexual boundaries, depicts the suicide of a gifted jazz musician and its ripple effect on those who knew him. Complex in structure and turbulent in mood, it is in many ways Baldwin´s most ambitious novel. Going to Meet the Man (1965) collects Baldwin´s short fiction, including the masterful ´´Sonny´s Blues,´´ the unforgettable portrait of a jazz musician struggling with drug addiction in which Baldwin came closest to defining his goal as a writer: ´´For, while the tale of how we suffer, and how we are delighted, and how we may triumph is never new, it must be heard. There isn´t any other tale to tell, it´s the only light we´ve got in all this darkness.´´ LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation´s literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America´s best and most significant writing.
