J. Edgar Hoover, the most powerful lawman in America for over fifty years, was also the country's most controversial and corrupt public servant. His career spanned nine different presidential administrations, and he survived a dozen attempts to sweep him from his post as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Hoover reshaped domestic law enforcement as he expanded the reach of the FBI and transformed his G-men into an elite national crime fighting division. While many of Hoover's achievements and insecurities are well documented, author Richard Hack reveals for the first time the most hidden secrets of Hoover's private life and exposes previously undisclosed conduct that threatened to compromise the security of the entire nation. Based on recently uncovered files and personal documents as well as over 100,000 pages of FBI memos and State Department papers

8 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. In this new book, Drs. Edward M. Hallowell and John J. Ratey build on the breakthroughs of Driven to Distraction to offer a comprehensive and entirely up-to-date guide to living a successful life with ADD. As Hallowell and Ratey point out, "attention deficit disorder" is a highly misleading description of an intriguing kind of mind. Original, charismatic, energetic, often brilliant, people with ADD have extraordinary talents and gifts embedded in their highly charged but easily distracted minds. Tailored expressly to ADD learning styles and attention spans, Delivered from Distraction provides accessible, engaging discussions of every aspect of the condition, from diagnosis to finding the proper treatment regime. ADD is a trait, a way of living in the world. It only becomes a disorder when it impairs your life.

Scurvy : how a surgeon, a mariner, and a gentleman solved the greatest medical mystery of the age of sail by Stephen R Bown( )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lively recounting of how three determined individuals overcame the constraints of 18th century thinking to solve the greatest medical mystery of their era. The cure for scurvy ranks among the greatest of military successes, yet its impact on history has mostly been ignored. Stephen Bown, in this engaging and often gripping book, searches back to the earliest recorded appearance of scurvy in the 16th century, to the 18th century, when the disease was at its gum-shred, bone-snapping worst, to the early 19th century, when the preventative was finally put into service. Bown introduces us, among others, to James Lind, navy surgeon and medical detective, whose research on the disease spawned the implementation of the cure; Captain James Cook, who successfully avoided scurvy on his epic voyages; and Gilbert Blane, whose social status and charisma won over the British Navy and saved England. Scurvy is a medical detective story for the ages, a fascinating and often maddening examination of how a preventative for scurvy, the "scourge of the seas", was found, ignored, and finally implemented to the great benefit of all seafaring nations
John Paul Jones : sailor, hero, father of the American Navy by Evan Thomas( )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Paul Jones, at sea and in the heat of battle, was the great American hero of the Age of Sail. He was to history what Patrick O'Brian's Jack Aubrey and C. S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower are to fiction. Ruthless, indomitable, clever; he vowed to sail, as he put it, "in harm's way." John Paul Jones is more than a great sea story. Jones is a character for the ages. John Adams called him the "most ambitious and intriguing officer in the American Navy." The renewed interest in the Founding Fathers reminds us of the great men who made this country, but John Paul Jones teaches us that it took fighters as well as thinkers, men driven by dreams of personal glory as well as high-minded principle to break free of the past and start a new world. Jones's spirit was classically American. Evan Thomas brings his skills as a biographer to this complex, protean figure whose life and rise are both thrilling as a tale of dauntless courage and revealing about the birth of a nation."Superlative... Both Jones and his latest biographer can justly be praised as masters of their respective crafts" ~ Publishers Weekly"Evan Thomas captures all the incongruities, vanities, blazing ambition, and phenomenal courage of his subject" ~ David McCullough, author of John Adams

Murdering Mr. Lincoln : a new detection of the 19th century's most famous crime. by Charles Higham( Recording )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this startling and original work, best-selling author Charles Higham addresses America's great historical mystery. Did John Wilkes Booth act alone on the night of Good Friday, 1865 or was he part of a wider conspiracy? Drawing from letters, diaries, previously unstudied records of official hearings, railway timetables, and obscure shipping manifests, Higham has woven a spellbinding account of intrigue and proves conclusively that high-level figures, including those in government and trade, were involved in the murder plot. Higham reveals that Lincoln unwittingly sealed his own doom. By allowing trading with the South in contradiction of his own laws, he enriched a circle of powerful people who, once he had outlived his usefulness and handed over the arrangements to others, marked him very quickly for assassination
