The national electoral map has split into warring regional bastions of Republican red and Democratic blue, producing a deep and enduring partisan divide in American politics. In Red Fighting Blue, David A. Hopkins places the current partisan and electoral era in historical context, explains how the increased salience of social issues since the 1980s has redefined the parties' geographic bases of support, and reveals the critical role that American political institutions play in intermediating between the behavior of citizens and the outcome of public policy-making. The widening geographic gap in voters' partisan preferences, as magnified further by winner-take-all electoral rules, has rendered most of the nation safe territory for either Democratic or Republican candidates in both presidential and congressional elections - with significant consequences for party competition, candidate strategy, and the operation of government.

Adara is the main character of this sci-fantasy sword and sorcery adventure with plenty of attitude and action. With sword in hand, our larger than life heroine of the pre-flood world is befriended by an Atlantean king whose once glorious kingdom is beseeched by a horde of invaders from across the eastern sea from the hostile land laying waste of this last salvation of hope in the decaying world controlled by the fallen watchers, whose Red Priests would stop at nothing to get control of mans last haven against the hordes of barbarians and dragons from the east. In this epic good vs. evil Adara and her friends fight the host of ships, weapons, Red Priests, giant orcs, dragons, seabeasts and invading hordes. She puts her famous black metal, ancient arts of war, Amazonian skills to an inhuman test in this action packed trilogy about the Nephilim and their secret plan to create a race of Nephilim born giants to take all of mans possessions and their daughters and to devour man himself. In her sandled feet and black sword the Amazon princess will meet her enemies head-on in the fight of her life using all the skill the dark jungles of the third age can muster. A female warrior as big as Hercules or Achilles, is a story of a forgotten age that needs to be told. The first two tales are put together so that the reader may enjoy her tales to the fullest and leaving the reader to wait for the last tale leaving the avid sci-fiction fantasy fan wanting more.

Like two roosters in a fighting arena, Haiti and the Dominican Republic are encircled by barriers of geography and poverty. They co-inhabit the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, but their histories are as deeply divided as their cultures: one French-speaking and black, one Spanish-speaking and mulatto. Yet, despite their antagonism, the two countries share a national symbol in the rooster--and a fundamental activity and favorite sport in the cockfight. In this book, Michele Wucker asks: "If the symbols that dominate a culture accurately express a nation's character, what kind of a country draws so heavily on images of cockfighting and roosters, birds bred to be aggressive? What does it mean when not one but two countries that are neighbors choose these symbols? Why do the cocks fight, and why do humans watch and glorify them?" Wucker studies the cockfight ritual in considerable detail, focusing as much on the customs and histories of these two nations as on their contemporary lifestyles and politics. Her well-cited and comprehensive volume also explores the relations of each nation toward the United States, which twice invaded both Haiti (in 1915 and 1994) and the Dominican Republic (in 1916 and 1965) during the twentieth century. Just as the owners of gamecocks contrive battles between their birds as a way of playing out human conflicts, Wucker argues, Haitian and Dominican leaders often stir up nationalist disputes and exaggerate their cultural and racial differences as a way of deflecting other kinds of turmoil. Thus Why the Cocks Fight highlights the factors in Caribbean history that still affect Hispaniola today, including the often contradictory policies of the U.S.
