The smoke ring by Larry Niven( )

The descendants of the crew of the Discipline no longer remembered their Earth roots or the existence of Sharls Davis Kendy, the computer-program despot of the ship, until Kendy initiated contact once more.

Then the Citizen's Tree people learn for the first time of the Admiralty, a large society living in free fall. And it is likely that the Admiralty has maintained, intact, Discipline's original computer library
The integral trees by Larry Niven( )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2020 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a long time, the State used slower-than-light spacecraft to prepare star systems for colonization by Man. Normally the ramseeders traveled centuries-long circuits which began and ended at Earth. Normally the mixed crew of citizens and "corpsicle" convicts remained with their ship. Normally ultimate control of the mission was exercised by a built-in cyborg "adviser," the true despot of the tiny State microcosm that was the ship. But little happened normally when Discipline reached the double-star system of T3 and LeVoy's Star. There an immense doughnut-shaped gaseous envelope had formed around a neutron star-and a vast volume of that nearly-empty cloud was comfortably habitable to Man. Though it had very little usable land, the Smoke Ring had evolved a huge variety of free-fall life-forms, most of which were edible and all of which could fly
The Republic by Plato( )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this monumental work of moral and political philosophy, Plato sought to answer some of the world₂s most formidable questions: What does it mean to be good? What enables us to distinguish between right and wrong? How should human virtues be translated into a just society? Perhaps the greatest single treatise written on political philosophy, The Republic has strongly influenced Western thought concerning questions of justice, rule, obedience, and the good life
The Persian expedition by Xenophon( )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the beginning of the fourth century B.C., a young Athenian saw his own city--the center of Greek culture and the greatest imperial power in the Mediterranean-completely defeated by Sparta and her allies. Many Athenians, including Xenophon himself, took this circumstance as a discredit to Athenian democracy, which had been combined with imperialism. The next age appeared to be the age of the individual, the expert, the leader-a period full of contradictions as the fundamentals of morality, patriotism and religion were sundered. Yet the turmoil through which Xenophon lived supplied the foundations of European thought laid by Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. Like Xenophon, Athenians who had come under the influence of Socrates were actually pro-Spartan, admiring Spartan discipline and the aristocratic ideal. Eventually Xenophon was exiled from Athens, spending the last years of his life on a country estate given to him by the Spartans, hunting, writing and recalling in his books the great days of the Persian expedition, his ideals of kingliness as exemplified by Cyrus, his respect for all soldierly qualities, and his surprising admiration for Socrates--both for his piety and his intellectual dexterity. Despite his pro-Spartan feelings, Xenophon was a true Athenian. In his speeches to the army of mercenaries can be found his humor, his delight in an exact analysis of a situation, his sensitive understanding of men--all of which qualities the Spartans sorely lacked

The dialogues of Plato by Plato( )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dialogues of Plato, written between 427 and 347 B.C., rank among the most important and influential works in Western thought. Most famous are the first four, in which Plato casts his teacher Socrates as the central disputant in colloquies that brilliantly probe a vast spectrum of philosophical ideas and issues. Socrates' ancient words are still true, and the ideas found in Plato's Dialogues still form the foundation of a thinking person's education. When Socrates is accused by his enemies of crimes against the state, among them "impiety" and "corruption of the young," his trial and death become the dramatic final setting for his message

"Early in May 1861, twenty-one-year-old Sam R. Watkins of Columbia, Tennessee, joined the First Tennessee Regiment, Company H, to fight for the Confederacy. Of the 120 original recruits in his company, Watkins was one of only seven to survive every one of its battles, from Shiloh to Nashville. Twenty years later, with a "house full of young 'rebels' clustering around my knees and bumping about my elbows," he wrote this remarkable account of "Co. Aytch"--Its common foot soldiers, its commanders, its Yankee enemies, its victories and defeats, and its ultimate surrender on April 26, 1865"--Compact disc cover
Geronimo : his own story : the autobiography of a great patriot warrior by Geronimo( )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is one of the most extraordinary and invaluable documents in the annals of Native American history: the authentic testament of a remarkable "war shaman" who, for several years, held off both Mexico and the United States in fierce defense of Apache lands. During 1905 and 1906, Geronimo, the legendary Apache warrior and honorary war chief, dictated his story through a native interpreter to S.M. Barrett, then superintendent of schools in Lawton, Oklahoma. As Geronimo was by then a prisoner of war, Barrett had to appeal all the way up the chain of command to President Teddy Roosevelt for permission to record the words of the "Indian outlaw." Geronimo came to each interview knowing exactly what he wanted to cover, beginning with the telling of the Apache creation story. When, at the end of the first session, Barrett posed a question, the only answer he received was a pronouncement: "Write what I have spoken."
