Book Description :

A riveting historical narrative of the heart-stopping events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly The iconic anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation, with the former Confederates allowed to reintegrate into American society. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased. In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington D.C., John Wilkes Booth—charismatic ladies' man and impenitent racist—murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre. A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a smart but shifty New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions—including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government, Mary Surratt. Featuring some of history's most remarkable figures, vivid detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.

Book Description :

ABOUT THE BOOK “The man with six weeks to live is anxious. He furls his brow, as he does countless times each day, and walks out of the Capitol Building, which is nearing completion. He is exhausted, almost numb.” It is a rare to find a historical work written in the present tense, but in Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever, that is what Martin Dugard and Bill O’Reilly have done. In a USA Today interview, “O’Reilly says Dugard did the research on the Lincoln book, and ‘I wrote it. A true collaboration.’” While the book is light on attribution, it is a compelling and fast read. O’Reilly says he “wanted [Killing Lincoln] to read like a thriller... for people who are not particularly interested in history, and to show what true leaders are like.” It does indeed read like a thriller. Using the present tense gives the work immediacy and heightens pace, but at times also feels intrusive because the subject matter so clearly isn’t immediate today. A historical overview might be better served by the good old past tense. Nevertheless, the book brims with conspiracy facts, touching on mysteries never conclusively proven wrong–although they’ve also never been proven right. Most notable of these theories is one centering on Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, who was in possession of assassin John Wilkes Booth’s diary, thanks to the work of private investigator Lafayette Baker. Baker was personally hired by Stanton and gave him the diary, which he found in Booth’s hotel room. Furthermore, when Stanton finally released the diary, 18 pages were missing, raising many an eyebrow. The Stanton theory has, as the authors admit, been “repudiated and dismissed by the vast majority of trained historians.” EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK “Lincoln strides purposefully back and forth, unprotected and unafraid, as vulnerable as a man can be to sniper fire, the bombardment serving as the perfect distraction from his considerable worries. When will this war ever end?” Abraham Lincoln was a man racing his fate. He knew it, even as he gave his second inaugural speech before 50,000 drenched citizens. Among them was John Wilkes Booth, a young, handsome, famous actor who had originally planned to kidnap the president, but instead decided to murder him, along with General Ulysses S. Grant, Secretary of State Seward, and Vice President Andrew Johnson. On April 1, 1865, Lincoln awaited news from Grant, whose Union Army was engaged against General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. A succession of horrific battles would end in Lee’s surrender when his ravaged army could no longer match the vast Union force. Lincoln’s terms of surrender were lenient, despite calls for vengeance. Amid Washington celebration, Lincoln became Booth’s obsession. He learned that the President and Mrs. Lincoln would attend “Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theatre, one of Booth’s favorite haunts, on Good Friday. After a nerve-wracking day of preparation, he was a coiled spring. His co-conspirators knew their roles–Lewis Powell would kill Secretary of State Seward, George Atzerodt would kill Vice President Andrew Johnson, while Booth shot Lincoln and Grant, who would be with the President. To Booth’s frustration, Grant left the capitol that afternoon. But the show went on. As Booth shot Lincoln, Powell slashed at Seward in his bed, where he was recovering from a carriage accident. But Powell had to literally hack his way through Seward’s son, daughter, and two others first. Amazingly, all in the house survived. Only William Bell, “a young black servant in a pressed white coat,” who answered the door... ...buy the book to continue reading!

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 Lincoln was watching the battlefield. In a bestcase scenario, his general in chief, Ulysses S. Grant, would trap Confederate general Robert E. Lee and his army inside Petersburg, forcing their surrender. The fouryearold American Civil War would be over, and the United States would be divided no more. #2 Lincoln was planning on offering Lee the most lenient surrender terms possible. He knew that the most important thing was to defeat Lee and his army, and he wanted to make sure Grant did that. #3 Lincoln’s dream was so vivid and painful that when he told his wife and friends about it, the description shocked them beyond words. The dream finally ended as day broke. #4 The standoff began last June, when Grant abruptly abandoned the battlefield at Cold Harbor and wheeled toward Petersburg. In what would go down as one of history’s greatest acts of stealth and logistics, Grant withdrew 115,000 men from their breastworks under cover of darkness and marched them south, crossed the James River without a single loss of life, and then pressed due west to Petersburg.

Book Description :

In these essays, McCann develops a unified perspective on human action. Written over a period of 25 years, the essays provide a comprehensive survey of the major topics in contemporary action theory. In four sections, the book addresses the ontology of action; the foundations of action; intention, will and freedom; and practical rationality. McCann works out a compromise between competing perspectives on the individuation of action; explores the foundations of action and defends a volitional theory; argues for a libertarian view of both the formation and the execution of intention; and considers the question of consistency in rational intentions, as well as the relationship between practical and theoretical reasoning.

Book Description :

Why do human beings move? In this lucid portrayal of human behavior, Fred Dretske provides an original account of the way reasons function in the causal explanation of behavior. Biological science investigates what makes our bodies move in the way they do. Psychology is interested in why persons—agents with reasons—move in the way they do. Dretske attempts to reconcile these different points of view by showing how reasons operate in a world of causes. He reveals in detail how the character of our inner states—what we believe, desire, and intend—determines what we do.

EAVESDROPPING ON HISTORY. For lovers of history, there are many questions about the American War that have never been answered or that have been answered with obviously ridiculous lies. A perfect example is the lie about Fort Pillow. After Congress investigated the massacre it was found that eight of the men who testified as eyewitnesses before Congress were never there. But no one has ever asked who ordered those men to perjure themselves. Another example is the truth behind why Fort Sumter was shelled. The book is a page turner for those people who would love to eavesdrop on meetings where policy and crimes were fabricated. Listen in on a meeting Lincoln, Grant and Stanton are having on reneging on the Dix-Hill prisoner exchange program. Or listen in on a meeting Stanton is having with one of his employees John Wilkes Booth. Are you surprised? But most importantly it’s all about Lincoln. Keep an open mind about why he was so well preserved and why he behaved as he did. The book is a novel but most of the events are based on the evidence available as you shall see. That’s just a start of a book that took over 25 years of research to write!

Book Description :

Donald Davidson's work has been of seminal importance in the development of analytic philosophy and his views on the nature of language, mind and action remain the starting point for many of the central debates in the analytic tradition. His ideas, however, are complex, often technical, and interconnected in ways that can make them difficult to understand. This introduction to Davidson's philosophy examines the full range of his writings to provide a clear succinct overview of his ideas. The book begins with an account of the assumptions and structure of Davidson's philosophy of language, introducing his compositionalism, extensionalism and commitment to a Tarski-style theory of truth as the model for theories of meaning. It goes on to show how that philosophical framework is to be applied and how it challenges the traditional picture. Marc Joseph examines Davidson's influential work on action theory and events and discusses the commonly made charge that his theory of action and mind leaves the mental as a mere 'epiphenomenon' of the physical. The final section explores Davidson's philosophy of mind, some of its consequences for traditional views of subjectivity and objectivity and, more generally, the relation between minded beings and the physical and mental world they occupy.
