✏Creating the Bill of Rights Book Summary : Reissue of a modern classic - the book that catapulted Norman Mailer to fame on its first publication in 1948. Based on Mailer's own experience of military service in the Philippines during World War Two, 'The Naked and the Dead' is a graphically truthful and shattering portrayal of ordinary men in battle. First published in 1949, as America was still basking in the glories of the Allied victory, it altered forever the popular perception of warfare. Focusing on the experiences of a fourteen-man platoon stationed on a Japanese-held island in the South Pacific during World War II, and written in a journalistic style, it tells the moving story of the soldiers' struggle to retain a sense of dignity amidst the horror of warfare, and to find a source of meaning in their lives amisdst the sounds and fury of battle.

✏The History of Indiana Law Book Summary : In addition to having a reputation as an epicenter for middle American values, Indiana is a cultural crossroads that has produced a rich and complex legal and constitutional heritage. The History of Indiana Law traces this history though a series of expert essays by identifying the themes that mark the state's legal development and establish its broader context in the Midwest and nation. Issues addressed by the commissioned writers include: the revolutionary framework bequeathed by the new American republic, including the Northwest Ordinance and the U.S. Constitution of 1787; the shift to Jacksonian democracy, with its emphasis on states' rights, individualism, market capitalism, and limited government; the rise of the industrial heartland and the growth of bureaucratic government; and the adaptation of law to the increasingly complex society of modern Indiana. The contributors also explore the ways in which the state's legal culture responded to---and at times resisted---the influence of national legal developments. Although Indiana outlawed slavery in 1816, the state's laws did not welcome African Americans. The book traces the tortured history of race relations in Indiana and helps explain why the state became a hotbed of white supremacy in the 1920s. Written by leading lawyers and historians, The History of Indiana Law is the indispensable reference and invaluable first source to learn about law and society in Indiana during almost two centuries of statehood. David J. Bodenhamer is professor of history and executive director of The Polis Center at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. He is author or editor of six books, including Fair Trail: Rights of the Accused in American History and The Bill of Rights in Modern America: After 200 Years (with James W. Ely, Jr).The Hon. Randall T. Shepard, an Evansville native, was appointed to the Indiana Supreme in 1985 and was later promoted to Chief Justice of the court.

✏Dictionary Of Modern American Philosophers Book Summary : The Dictionary of Modern American Philosophers includes both academic and non-academic philosophers, and a large number of female and minority thinkers whose work has been neglected. It includes those intellectuals involved in the development of psychology, pedagogy, sociology, anthropology, education, theology, political science, and several other fields, before these disciplines came to be considered distinct from philosophy in the late nineteenth century. Each entry contains a short biography of the writer, an exposition and analysis of his or her doctrines and ideas, a bibliography of writings, and suggestions for further reading. While all the major post-Civil War philosophers are present, the most valuable feature of this dictionary is its coverage of a huge range of less well-known writers, including hundreds of presently obscure thinkers. In many cases, the Dictionary of Modern American Philosophers offers the first scholarly treatment of the life and work of certain writers. This book will be an indispensable reference work for scholars working on almost any aspect of modern American thought.
