Most widely held works by Herbert Tauss
Us and them : a history of intolerance in America by Jim Carnes( )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 1,840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Us and Them illuminates the dark corners of our nation's past and traces our ongoing efforts to live up to the American ideals of equality and justice. Fourteen case studies -- enhanced through the use of original documents, historical photos, newly commissioned paintings, and dramatic narrative -- bring readers a first-hand account of the history and psychology of intolerance. We read about Mary Dyer, executed for her Quaker faith in Boston in 1660. We learn how the Mormons were expelled from Missouri in 1838. The attack on Chinese miners in Wyoming in 1885, the massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890, the Ku Klux Klan activities in Mobile, Alabama in 1981, and the Crown Heights riot in 1991 are among the grim episodes presented in clear, evocative language that brings to life history that is often forgotten or slighted

Trinity by Leon Uris( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The "terrible beauty" that is Ireland comes alive in this mighty epic that re-creates that Emerald's Isle's fierce struggle for independence. Trinity is a saga of glories and defeats, triumphs and tragedies, lived by a young Catholic rebel and the beautiful and valiant Protestant girl who defied her heritage to join him. Leon Uris has painted a masterful portrait of a beleaguered people divided by religion and wealth--impoverished Catholic peasants pitted against a Protestant aristocracy wielding power over life and death
