3. Blood Done Sign My Name: A True Story
Author: by Timothy B. Tyson
Published at: Crown; Reprint edition (May 3, 2005)
The riveting* true story of the fiery summer of 1970, which would forever transform the town of Oxford, North Carolinaa classic portrait of the fight for civil rights in the tradition of To Kill a Mockingbird *Chicago TribuneOn May 11, 1970, Henry Marrow, a twenty-three-year-old black veteran, walked into a crossroads store owned by Robert Teel and came out running.
Teel and two of his sons chased and beat Marrow, then killed him in public as he pleaded for his life. Like many small Southern towns, Oxford had barely been touched by the civil rights movement. But in the wake of the killing, young African Americans took to the streets.
While lawyers battled in the courthouse, the Klan raged in the shadows and black Vietnam veterans torched the town’s tobacco warehouses. Tyson’s father, the pastor of Oxford’s all-white Methodist church, urged the town to come to terms with its bloody racial history.
In the end, however, the Tyson family was forced to move away. Tim Tyson’s gripping narrative brings gritty blues truth and soaring gospel vision to a shocking episode of our history. FINALIST FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD If you want to read only one book to understand the uniquely American struggle for racial equality and the swirls of emotion around it, this is it.

5. World History in Documents: A Comparative Reader
Author: by Peter N. Stearns
Published at: NYU Press; 2nd edition (April 15, 2008)
A textbook of primary sources of key events in history that have altered the pastWhile world history materials date back to prehistoric times, the field itself is relatively young. Indeed, when the first edition of Peter Stearns’s best-selling World History in Documents was published in 1998, world history was poised for explosive growth, with the College Board approving the AP world history curriculum in 2000, and the exam shortly thereafter.
At the university level, survey world history courses are increasingly required for history majors, and graduate programs in world history are multiplying in the U.S.And overseas. World events have changed as rapidly as the field of world history itself, making the long-awaited second edition of World History in Documents especially timely.
In addition to including a new preface, focusing on current trends in the field, Stearns has updated forty percent of the textbook, paying particular attention to global processes throughout history. The book also covers key events that have altered world history since the publication of the first edition, including terrorism, global consumerism, and environmental issues.
6. Encyclopedia of Cryptozoology: A Global Guide to Hidden Animals and Their Pursuers
Author: by Michael Newton
Published at: McFarland; Reprint edition (October 24, 2014)
On every continent and in every nation, animals unrecognized by modern science are reported on a daily basis. People passionately pursue these creatures-the name given to their field of study is cryptozoology. Coined in the 1950s, the term literally means the science of hidden animals.
When the International Society of Cryptozoology (ISC) was formed in 1982, the founders declared that the branch of science is also concerned with “the possible existence of known animals in areas where they are not supposed to occur (either now or in the past) as well as the unknown persistence of presumed extinct animals to the present time or to the recent pastwhat makes an animal of interest to cryptology is that it is unexpected.” This reference work presents a “flesh and blood” view of cryptozoology.
Here, 2,744 entries are listed, the majority of which each describe one specific creature or type of creature. Other entries cover 742 places where unnamed cryptids are said to appear; profiles of 77 groups and 112 individuals who have contributed to the field; descriptions of objects and events important to the subject; and essays on cryptotourism and hoaxes, for example.
7. Founding Martyr: The Life and Death of Dr. Joseph Warren, the American Revolution's Lost Hero
Author: by Christian Di Spigna
Published at: Crown; Illustrated edition (August 14, 2018)
A rich and illuminating biography of America’s forgotten Founding Father, the patriot physician and major general who fomented rebellion and died heroically at the battle of Bunker Hill on the brink of revolutionLittle has been known of one of the most important figures in early American history, Dr. Joseph Warren, an architect of the colonial rebellion, and a man who might have led the country as Washington or Jefferson did had he not been martyred at Bunker Hill in 1775.
Warren was involved in almost every major insurrectionary act in the Boston area for a decade, from the Stamp Act protests to the Boston Massacre to the Boston Tea Party, and his incendiary writings included the famous Suffolk Resolves, which helped unite the colonies against Britain and inspired the Declaration of Independence.
Yet after his death, his life and legend faded, leaving his contemporaries to rise to fame in his place and obscuring his essential role in bringing America to independence. Christian Di Spigna’s definitive new biography of Warren is a loving work of historical excavation, the product of two decades of research and scores of newly unearthed primary-source documents that have given us this forgotten Founding Father anew.
8. The Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Volume I: Called to Serve, January 1929-June 1951 (Volume 1) (Martin Luther King Papers)
Author: by Martin Luther King Jr.
Published at: University of California Press; First Edition, (A Centennial Book) (January 9, 1992)
More than two decades since his death, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s ideashis call for racial equality, his faith in the ultimate triumph of justice, and his insistence on the power of nonviolent struggle to bring about a major transformation of American societyare as vital and timely as ever.
The wealth of his writings, both published and unpublished, that constitute his intellectual legacy are now preserved in this authoritative, chronologically arranged, multi-volume edition. Faithfully reproducing the texts of his letters, speeches, sermons, student papers, and articles, this edition has no equal.
Volume One contains many previously unpublished documents beginning with the letters King wrote to his mother and father during his childhood. We read firsthand his surprise and delight in his first encounter (during a trip to Connecticut) with the less segregated conditions in the North.
Through his student essays and exams, we discover King’s doubts about the religion of his father and we can trace his theological development. We learn of his longing for the emotional conversion experience that he witnessed others undergoing, and we follow his search to know God through study at theological seminaries.
9. Politicians and Rhetoric: The Persuasive Power of Metaphor
Author: by J. Charteris-Black
Published at: Palgrave Macmillan; 2005th edition (November 23, 2004)
This book analyzes the rhetoric of speeches by major British or American politicians and shows how metaphor is used systematically to create political myths of monsters, villains and heroes. Metaphors are shown to interact with other figures of speech to communicate subliminal meanings by drawing on the unconscious emotional association of words.
10. Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust
Author: by Doreen Rappaport
Published at: Candlewick; Illustrated edition (January 23, 2014)
“The very model of excellence in nonfiction…. An astonishing and inspiring survey…. A necessary, exemplary book.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)Through meticulously researched accounts some chronicled in book form for the first time Doreen Rappaport illuminates the defiance of tens of thousands of Jews across eleven Nazi-occupied countries during World War II.
In answer to the genocidal madness that was Hitler’s Holocaust, the only response they could abide was resistance, and their greatest weapons were courage, ingenuity, the will to survive, and the resolve to save others or to die trying. Back matter includes a pronunciation guide, a list of important dates, source notes, a bibliography, a bibliography by chapter, and an index.
11. The Purpose of the Past: Reflections on the Uses of History
Author: by Gordon S. Wood
Published at: Penguin Books; Reprint edition (January 27, 2009)
An erudite scholar and an elegant writer, Gordon S. Wood has won both numerous awards and a broad readership since the 1969 publication of his widely acclaimed The Creation of the American Republic. With The Purpose of the Past, Wood has essentially created a history of American history, assessing the current state of history vis–vis the work of some of its most important scholars-doling out praise and scorn with equal measure.
In this wise, passionate defense of history’s ongoing necessity, Wood argues that we cannot make intelligent decisions about the future without understanding our past. Wood offers a master’s insight into what history-at its best-can be and reflects on its evolving and essential role in our culture.
12. Mary Barton (Penguin Classics)
Author: by Elizabeth Gaskell
Published at: Penguin Classics (April 1, 1997)
O Jem, her father won’t listen to me, and it’s you must save Mary! You’re like a brother to her’Mary Barton, the daughter of disillusioned trade unionist, rejects her working-class lover Jem Wilson in the hope of marrying Henry Carson, the mill owner’s son, and making a better life for herself and her father.
But when Henry is shot down in the street and Jem becomes the main suspect, Mary finds herself painfully torn between the two men. Through Mary’s dilemma, and the moving portrayal of her father, the embittered and courageous activist John Barton, Mary Barton (1848) powerfully dramatizes the class divides of the hungry forties’ as personal tragedy.
In its social and political setting, it looks towards Elizabeth Gaskell’s great novels of the industrial revolution, in particular North and South. In his introduction Maconald Daly discusses Elizabeth Gaskell’s first novel as a pioneering book that made public the great division between rich and poor a theme that inspired much of her finest work.
13. Civilian Conservation Corps: A Selectively Annotated Bibliography (Bibliographies and Indexes in American History)
Author: by Larry N. Sypolt
Published at: Praeger; Annotated edition (April 30, 2005)
Sypolt has compiled the first comprehensive national bibliography since 1943 of the Civilian Conservation Corps of which he himself is a former member. Over 2,000 sources are meticulously cited, making this work an essential one-stop reference guide for those interested in learning more about the institution which has, since its humble 1933 inception, provided jobs for many unemployed youth, planted billions of trees, built many miles of trails, and created numerous pavilions, picnic areas, lakes, and dams across America.
Practical sub-divisions within the book aid in making research efficient for the reader, so that he or she may look up sources directly pertaining to his or her interest whether that be the role of minorities in the Corps or seeing what has been written about CCC Camp Libraries instead of having to wade through countless irrelevant works.
Civilian Conservation Corps spans more than just the traditional sources of information; incorporated into this research guide are all types of literature, training guides, and other media, including: Films; Photographs; Maps; Internet Resources; Oral Histories; Museums. The author’s primary purpose in compiling this edition is to direct scholars, researchers, federal and state parks, forests, and preservation personnel and historic preservationists in their research and to point them in the direction of the vast literature pertaining to the topic.
