Chronicle of the Indian wars : from colonial times to Wounded Knee by Alan Axelrod( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the moment that Europeans landed on America's shores, they engaged in bloody conflict with the natives they encountered. Tensions and hostilities bred in the colonial wars with the Spanish, English, French, and Dutch would lead inevitably to the later wars of the removal period, skirmishes on the western Plains, and, ultimately, the confrontation at Wounded Knee. Now, captured here in the words of those who lived it, is the epic, violent history of a landscape turned red - through fear, greed, and fatal misunderstanding. Each chapter in this sweeping narrative outlines and focuses on a particular war or period, re-creating its conflicts through hundreds of immediate sources - the diaries and letters of military commanders, captivity narratives and missionary journals, U.S. Army reports and treaties, and Native American speeches and oral accounts. Here are the authentic voices of Chief Joseph, Black Hawk, Sitting Bull, and Crazy Horse; the accounts given by George Rogers Clark, Kit Carson, William Tecumseh Sherman, and George Armstrong Custer; as well as the experiences of the common soldier who labored under brutal conditions along the frontier, and Native American warriors fighting to the death to preserve their threatened way of life. Additional features make this volume the perfect reference. Included in each chapter are brief biographies of individual native and white leaders; excerpts from hundreds of historical documents; feature boxes on such topics as the conduct of warfare along the frontier, Native American beliefs, the fate of a captive, and treaties that were made and abandoned; maps of tribal locations and battle campaigns; and historical drawings and photographs. A detailed chronology highlights all of the significant events in Native-white relations from the sixteenth-century Spanish exploration of North America through the aftermath of Wounded Knee. Like no other single volume, Chronicle of the Indian Wars brings to life the entire history of this centuries-old struggle for possession of a continent, tracing the sources of tragic conflict from their origin nearly 500 years ago up to the brink of the twentieth century
The international encyclopedia of secret societies and fraternal orders by Alan Axelrod( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 1,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Debunking the spurious reputations of some, detailing the authenticity of others, The International Encyclopedia of Secret Societies and Fraternal Orders contains over 800 A-to-Z entries describing the names, natures, and purposes of secret societies throughout history and around the world. An extensive introduction gives readers a solid overview of the evolution of secret societies from their ancient roots, typologies of secret societies - how and why they specialized, why schisms and splinter groups are almost inevitable, how brotherhoods often formed around one charismatic personality, and why memberships are now declining. Further, The International Encyclopedia of Secret Societies and Fraternal Orders has a comprehensive bibliography, an index, and includes the addresses of secret societies in existence today

12 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Thai and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In contrast to many creative prodigies, Edison worked by "open" methods, making his processes relatively easy to study and emulate. Using Edison's own diaries, papers, and modern studies of his work, Axelrod draws out time-tested principles that can be applied by even the least creative among us. Edison on Innovation presents 102 key lessons, including: Experiment with everything; Embrace problems; Start small, scale up; Innovate without inventing; Learn the market; Create new uses for whatever you have; Plan for spontaneity; and Make the problem the solution." "Edison on Innovation serves as a revelation to anyone who needs or wants to be creative on demand and for anyone whose business requires the continual creation of new ideas and the practical realization of the best of them."--Jacket
