Death of an empire : the rise and murderous fall of Salem, America's richest city by Robert Booth( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most readers know Salem only for the city's notorious witch trials. But years later it became a very different city, one that produced America's first millionaire (still one of history's 75 wealthiest men) and boasted a maritime trade that made it the country's richest city. Westward expansion and the industrial revolution would eventually erode Salem's political importance, but it was a shocking murder and the scandal that followed which led at last to its fall from national prominence. This book is the tale of a little-known but remarkably rich era of American history, drawing in characters such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, John Quincy Adams, and Daniel Webster

Wikileaks : [inside Julian Assange's war on secrecy] by David Leigh( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A team of journalists with unparalleled inside access provides the first full, in-depth account of WikiLeaks, its founder Julian Assange, and the ethical, legal, and political controversies it has both uncovered and provoked. The extraordinary twists and turns of WikiLeaks have been closely followed by the Guardian newspaper ever since the website launched in 2006, and Guardian journalists have had unprecedented access to all the major players, from angry and embarrassed politicians and diplomats to the extraordinary figure of Julian Assange himself. At different times Assange hid at David Leigh's homes. Here they reveal the many strands-legal, ethical, security related-of a story that continues to dominate world headlines. They look at the Internet culture and technology that made the mining of secret information possible and at the fanatical hackers who set up WikiLeaks. They explore the secret goings-on that WikiLeaks has uncovered, from the revelation of extrajudicial killings in Kenya in 2008 to the avalanche of US diplomatic cables in 2010. They study the implications of the latest revelations and reveal the strange and contradictory nature of Assange himself: a man praised by Amnesty International in 2009 but also, barely a year later, accused by Swedish police of sex crimes. The WikiLeaks story has received worldwide attention and reaction. WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy presents the whole history of the organization and the ethical debate that surrounded the use of its material, plus the inside story of the personalities that created then threatened to destroy the website that has changed our view of secrecy forever

Mad for glory : a heart of darkness in the War of 1812 by Robert Booth( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In October, 1812, as the U.S. frigate Essex ventured out against the British army, only one man had any idea that this cruise would turn into the strangest naval adventure in American history. That man was Captain David Porter, who had decided to run off with the navy's ship and its three hundred men to fight a separate Pacific war, one of privateering, pillaging, and orgies. Drawing on Porter's own writings and the accounts of eyewitnesses, the author recounts the events of a dark and fatal voyage in which David Porter crosses the line from commander to cult leader, from improbable fantasy to disastrous reality. --Publisher

Who's on the Menu presents the famous and infamous behind hundreds of dishes.
