Abraham Lincoln : the observations of John G. Nicolay and John Hay by Michael Burlingame( )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1890 Abraham Lincoln's two main White House secretaries, John G. Nicolay and John Hay, published the ten-volume biography Abraham Lincoln: A History. Although the authors witnessed the daily events occurring within the executive mansion and the national Capitol, their lengthy biography is more a recounting of the Civil War era than a study of Lincoln's life." "Editor Michael Burlingame sifted through the original forty-seven-hundred-page work and selected only the personal observations of the secretaries during the Lincoln presidency, placing ten excerpts in chronological order in Abraham Lincoln: The Observations of John G. Nicolay and John Hay. The result is an important collection of Nicolay and Hay's interpretations of Lincoln's character, actions, fame, and reputation, framed by Burlingame's compelling preface, introduction, chapter introductions, and notes. The volume provides vivid descriptions of such events as Election Day in 1860, the crisis at Fort Sumter, the first major battle of the war at Bull Run, and Lincoln's relationship with Edwin Stanton and George McClellan." "In this work, Burlingame has made key portions of Nicolay and Hay's immense biography available to a wide audience of today's readers."--BOOK JACKET

Democracy; an American novel by Henry Adams( Book )

39 editions published between 1880 and 2017 in English and French and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the best novels ever written about Washington, D.C. Since it was written well over a century ago [1880], I anticipated that it would feel dated. Instead, the novel feels incredibly fresh. From the smart and ambitious young widow taking the political establishment by storm to the idealistic young war veteran lawyer advising her to the scheming and aging senator to the out-of-his-depth president, all of the characters (while obviously drawn on real people of the day) are recognizable and fun. --Inga at Amazon.com

Tourism and Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation. ; From Policy to Practice by Susanne Becken( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contribution of tourism to climate change, and the likely consequences of climate change for key tourist destinations, has been well reported and discussed. Yet, there is a lack of evidence-based systematic practical advice as to how the tourism industry should respond to the challenge of climate change. Building on a sound conceptual understanding of the links between climate change and tourism, this book shows how the tourism sector might best respond. It not only focuses on the roles of supportive policies and institutions in ensuring a strong ""enabling environment"" for practical r
