    • John F. Kennedy, President, 1961-1963 - Professor Vernon Bogdanor


      from Gresham College Added 204 3 0

      Kennedy's brief Presidency, terminated by assassination, still has glamour attached to it, over 40 years after his death. Yet, his actual performance in office divides the historians. Some claim that he was continually learning from experience. They argue that if he had lived and been returned for a second term, he would have introduced radical reforms in civil rights, and would have withdrawn from the United States' commitment in Vietnam. Others argue that his foreign policy would not have been so very different from that of his successor, and that he would have had less success in persuading Congress to pass civil rights legislation. What should the final verdict be?

            • Where the North Sea Touches Alabama


              from nathan m peracciny Added 740 3 0

              Allen Shelton's "Where the North Sea Touches Alabama" (On sale by University of Chicago Press: http://www.press.uchicago.edu) is a work of sociological fictocriticism that explores not only the author’s relationship to the artist but his physical, historical, and social relationship to northeastern Alabama, in rare style. "In Christ there is no East or West, North or South, and the North Sea touches Alabama." Part of the sermon by a Sand Mountain preacher, 1979. This utterance by a preacher inexplicably came true when the dead artist Patrik Keim’s coffin may have been uncovered two hundred miles from where it was interned in an ancient beaver swamp in Alabama by dozer operator who quickly reburied the miraculous coffin. The artist Keim was obsessed by the North Sea. The report of the investigation into the event is titled Where the North Sea Touches Alabama by Allen Shelton, University of Chicago Press, 2013. The fictocritical account is part memoir, part steam-punk theory, and a hard edged psychic materialist analysis of the possible return.

Early settlers began to migrate west on a quest for gold. Because of this conquest the Cherokee Indians were pushed off of their land.
