Spirited heroine Marie Fontaine, niece of a Parisian apothecary, keeps her head during the French Revolution while all about her are literally losing theirs. She watches in horror as Queen Marie-Antoinette<U+2014>"the Widow Capet" as the citizens are now forced to call her<U+2014>is carted in her tumbril amid the heartless jeers of the crowd down the rue Saint-Honoré to the guillotine in the Place de la Révolution. Sharing a prison cell with the future Empress Josephine, she survives to rejoice at the death of the hated Robespierre and to witness the triumph of the youthful Napoleon Bonaparte as he sees of the last of the bloodthirsty mobs with his famous "whiff of grapeshot". Napoleon is the love of her life, but how near will she come to possessing him? Dangers, double-crossings, imprisonments and executions succeed each other in the first installment of a thrilling trilogy by one of the finest historical novelists of our time

Winning changes everything. Plot Outline In 1966, Texas Western coach Don Haskins led the first all-black starting line-up for a college basketball team to the NCAA national championship. Plot Synopsis: 40 years ago, Don Haskins went on the recruiting trail to find the best talent in the land, black or white. 7 blacks and 5 whites made up the legendary 1965-66 Texas Western Miners. They were mocked and ridiculed for their showboating and flaunting of black players on the court. Yet, in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, Haskins and his Miners came together as a team united to reach the National Championship game against powerhouse Kentucky
Louis Philippe, King of the French by Catherine Gavin( Book )

11 editions published between 1931 and 1933 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this thesis is threefold. It attempts, while describing the outstanding incidents in the Life of Louis Philippe, to show that the impressions received during his early life profoundly influenced his policy as King of the French, and had a stronger effect upon his later actions than the circumstances of the world in which he actually moved. It attempts to depict the development of the Anglo-French alliance, and to show Louis Philippe's vital services to European diplomacy in the fostering of the Entente Cordiale. The writer has laid especial stress on the Franco-Spanish relations, and has not only attempted by a chronological narrative to unravel the problem of the Spanish Marriages, but by a study of the papers relative to Louis Philippe's adventures with Spain in 1808 and 1810, has been able to consider the Spanish Question in the light of these previous transactions, which were practically unknown. The thesis is divided into eight chapters, the first two dealing with his life story from 1773-1830, the third and fourth with the July monarchy from 1830-1840; while the fifth and. sixth/ sixth, continuing the narrative of the reign, deal especially with Anglo French relations and the Spanish Marriages. The seventh chapter describes the causes and course of the social revolution of 1848, and the last chapter is an epilogue on the last years of Louis Philippe. The writer hopes that this thesis will be a contribution, however slight, towards the better knowledge of a personality too long neglected by the history students of this country. The work for the thesis was done in Aberdeen, in the British Museum and Public Record Office, London, and the Bibliotheque Nationals, Paris
