The California Gold Rush and the coming of the Civil War by Leonard L Richards ( Recording )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
It has always been understood that the 1848 discovery of gold in the Sierra Nevada influenced the battle over the admission of California to the Union. Now, historian Richards makes clear the links between the Gold Rush and many of the regional crises in the lead-up to the Civil War. Richards explains how Southerners envisioned California as a new market for slaves, only to be frustrated by California's prohibition of slavery. Still, they schemed to tie California to the South with a southern-routed railroad and worked to split off the southern half as a separate slave state. Richards recounts political battles in Washington and feuds, duels, and perhaps outright murder in California as the state came close to being divided in two.

Men in black [how the Supreme Court is destroying America by Mark R Levin ( Recording )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 146 libraries worldwide
The Supreme Court endorses terrorists' rights, flag burning, and importing foreign law. Is that in the Constitution? You're right: it's not. But these days the Constitution is no restraint on our out-of-control Supreme Court. The Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones purely on its own arbitrary whims. Even though liberals like John Kerry are repeatedly defeated at the polls, the majority on the allegedly "conservative" Supreme Court reflects their views and wields absolute power. There's a word for this: tyranny. In Men in Black, radio talk-show host and legal scholar Mark R. Levin dissects the judicial tyranny that is robbing us of our freedoms and stuffing the ballot box in favor of liberal policies.

Fighting terrorism by Binyamin Netanyahu ( Recording )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 129 libraries worldwide
The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 raise grave questions. Where did this rising tide of terror come from? Is it here to stay? And how can it be fought? In this newly revised edition of Fighting Terrorism, Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel's Likud Party and a noted authority on international terrorism, explores the old and new terrorist threats. Citing diverse examples, Netanyahu demonstrates that domestic terrorist groups are usually no match for an advanced technological society. But he sees a potent threat in the new international terrorism that emerged in the 1900s and is increasingly the product of Islamic militants. Netanyahu concludes by suggesting how democracies can defend themselves against this new threat.
Disrobed the new battle plan to break the Left's stranglehold on the courts by Mark W Smith ( Recording )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
America's courts, legal culture, and law schools remain solidly in the Left's camp. Decades of liberal legal precedents fill volumes of law tomes. Absent a sweeping change, precisely what author Mark W. Smith calls for in Disrobed, liberals will ruthlessly exploit their dominant position in the law to continue advancing their radical agenda, as they have for the past seventy years. Smith lays out an aggressive new battle plan to thwart the liberal assault on America by turning the courts into allies of the conservative movement.

Co-leaders the power of great partnerships by David A Heenan ( Recording )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 112 libraries worldwide
Today's celebrity CEO is either a figurehead or an egomaniac, too public a personality to get the real work done. That work is done instead by teams of leaders: exceptional deputies who forge great partnerships to maximize both organizational and personal success. Written for CEOs, managers, and anyone else interested in modern organizations, this is the first comprehensive study of co-leaders and their often quiet power. In a growing number of non-hierarchical organizations, talent, not title, is the source of power; boss and subordinate seem more like peers, with the spotlight on great partnerships. Co-leaders understand both the executive and subordinate experience, making them better adapted to the needs of the new millennium, where those who can command and follow will prove to be the greatest assets of any organization.
