✏Lincoln on Trial Book Summary : In light of recent controversies and legal actions related to America’s treatment of enemy prisoners in the Middle East and Guantánamo Bay, the regulation of government during wartime has become a volatile issue on the global scene. By today’s standards, Lincoln’s adherence to the laws of war could be considered questionable, and his critics, past and present, have not hesitated to charge that he was a war criminal. In Lincoln on Trial: Southern Civilians and the Law of War, Burrus M. Carnahan conducts an extensive analysis of Lincoln’s leadership throughout the Civil War as he struggled to balance his own humanity against the demands of his generals. Carnahan specifically scrutinizes Lincoln’s conduct toward Southerners in light of the international legal standards of his time as the president wrestled with issues that included bombardment of cities, collateral damage to civilians, seizure and destruction of property, forced relocation, and the slaughter of hostages. Carnahan investigates a wide range of historical materials from accounts of the Dahlgren raid to the voices of Southern civilians who bore the brunt of extensive wartime destruction. Through analysis of both historic and modern standards of behavior in times of war, a sobering yet sympathetic portrait of one of America’s most revered presidents emerges.

✏The Real Custer Book Summary : The Real Custer takes a good hard look at the life and storied military career of George Armstrong Custer—from cutting his teeth at Bull Run in the Civil War, to his famous and untimely death at Little Bighorn in the Indian Wars. Author James Robbins demonstrates that Custer, having graduated last in his class at West Point, went on to prove himself again and again as an extremely skilled cavalry leader. Robbins argues that Custer's undoing was his bold and cocky attitude, which caused the Army's bloodiest defeat in the Indian Wars. Robbins also dives into Custer’s personal life, exploring his letters and other personal documents to reveal who he was as a person, underneath the military leader. The Real Custer is an exciting and valuable contribution to the legend and history of Custer that will delight Custer fans as well as readers new to the legend.

✏Single Trial Analyses of Behavioural and Neuroimaging Data in Perception and Decision Making Book Summary : The cognitive psychology of perception and decision-making is at a cross-road. Most studies still employ categorical designs, a priori classified stimuli and perform statistical evaluations across subjects. However, a shift has been observed in recent years towards parametric designs in which the information content of stimuli is systematically manipulated to study the single-trial dynamics of behaviour (reaction times, eye movements) and brain activity (EEG, MEG, fMRI). By using the information contained in the variance of individual trials, the single-trial approach goes beyond the activity of the average brain: it reveals the specificity of information processing in individual subjects, across tasks and stimulus space, revealing both inter-individual commonalties and differences. This Research Topic provides theoretical and empirical support for the study of single-trial data. Topics of particular interest include: 1. description of the richness of information in single-trials and how it can be successfully extracted; 2. statistical issues related to measures of central tendency, control for multiple comparisons, multivariate approaches, hierarchical modelling and characterization of individual differences; 3. how manipulation of the stimulus space can allow for a direct mapping of stimulus properties onto brain activity to infer dynamics of information processing and information content of brain states; 4. how results from different brain imaging techniques can be integrated at the single-trial level.

✏Archaeology History and Custer s Last Battle Book Summary : On the afternoon of June 25, 1867, an overwhelming force of Sioux and Cheyenne Indians quickly mounted a savage onslaught against General George Armstrong Custer’s battalion, driving the doomed troopers of the U.S. Seventh Cavalry to a small hill overlooking the Little Bighorn River, where Custer and his men bravely erected their heroic last stand. So goes the myth of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, a myth perpetuated and reinforced for over 100 years. In truth, however, "Custer’s Last Stand" was neither the last of the fighting nor a stand. Using innovative and standard archaeological techniques, combined with historical documents and Indian eyewitness accounts, Richard Allan Fox, Jr. vividly replays this battle in astonishing detail. Through bullets, spent cartridges, and other material data, Fox identifies combat positions and tracks soldiers and Indians across the Battlefield. Guided by the history beneath our feet, and listening to the previously ignored Indian testimonies, Fox reveals scenes of panic and collapse and, ultimately, a story of the Custer battle quite different from the fatalistic versions of history. According to the author, the five companies of the Seventh Cavalry entered the fray in good order, following planned strategies and displaying tactical stability. It was the sudden disintegration of this cohesion that caused the troopers’ defeat. The end came quickly, unexpectedly, and largely amid terror and disarray. Archaeological evidences show that there was no determined fighting and little firearm resistance. The last soldiers to be killed had rushed from Custer Hill.

✏Reno and Apsaalooka Survive Custer Book Summary : This book deals with the life of Major Marcus A. Reno, who was dismissed from the U.S. Army in 1880, and the subsequent effort by his relatives and other Civil War buffs to reopen his case and restore him to his rank. Perhaps the most poignant and painful event of his life was the battle of Little Big Horn in 1876, commonly called Custer's Last Stand. In that engagement, small by comparison to many of the Civil War battles in which he fought, Reno was second in command to Col. George Custer and opened the battle with a frontal assault on the Indian village. Following the famous defeat in which Custer and his entire contingent of 210 men died, the American people, reluctant to accept the fact that Sioux and Cheyenne warriors under Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse had simply defeated the Seventh Cavalry and killed the flamboyant Custer, looked for someone to blame for the defeat. Gen. Alfred Terry, Capt. F. W. Benteen, and Maj. Reno were logical targets. Custer's widow, Elizabeth, and Frederick Whittaker, a Custer biographer, accused Reno and Benteen of doing less than their duty and even of cowardice, contributing to the massacre. A court of inquiry was held at Reno's request. It completely exonerated him but the cloud of accusation hung over his name until his death. It also set into motion a series of events that culminated in Reno's trial by a St. Paul court-martial on charges completely unrelated to the fight at Little Big Horn. Reno was found guilty of "conduct unbecoming an officer" and dismissed from the service. His dismissal haunted Reno until his death in 1889. His family pursued the matter for another seventy-eight years. In 1967, a Pentagon hearing corrected the injustice done him, restored him to rank, and opened the door for his reburial on the Montana battlefield with full military honors. The author brings the memory of his relative to life and allows the reader to revisit one of the most fascinating periods in American history, the taming of the western frontier, fulfilling what the white man believed was his "manifest destiny" to control the North American continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The author's interaction with the Crow Indians, adding their perspective on the battle, provides a unique insight into the cause and meaning of the fight at Little Big Horn for both races, white and red.

✏Speech and Language Book Summary : Speech and Language: Advances in Basic Research and Practice, Volume 8 provides articles that discuss a broad range of topics on speech and language processes and pathologies. This volume contains nine contributions covering a wide array of topics on speech and language. Certain chapters review the literature on speech-sound development in normally developing and deviant children; the scope of the problem of stuttering and the three prominent theoretical positions on anxiety in stuttering; and critical issues in the linguistic study of aphasia. Discussions on such topics as speech production characteristics of the hearing impaired; ontogenetic changes in children's speech-sound perception; and the impact of linguistic theory on the description and treatment of articulation disorders are also presented. Linguists, speech pathologists, and researchers on language development will find the book very insightful and informative.
