In 1860 Abraham Lincoln employed the proverb, Right makes might, (opposite of the more aggressive Might makes right) in his famed Cooper Union address. While Lincoln did not originate the proverb, his use of it in this critical speech indicates that the 14th century phrase had taken on new ethical and democratic connotations in the 19th century. In this collection, famed scholar of proverbs Wolfgang Mieder explores the multifaceted use and function of proverbs through the history of the United States, from their early beginnings up through their use by today's well-known politicians, including Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Bernie Sanders. Building on previous publications and unpublished research, Mieder explores sociopolitical aspects of the American worldview as expressed through the use of proverbs in politics, women's rights, and the civil rights movement. By looking at the use of proverbial phrases, Mieder demonstrates how one traditional phrase can take on numerous expressive roles over time and how they continue to play a key role in our contemporary moment.

The Bilingual Real Estate Bridge: An English-Spanish Comprehensive Reference Dictionary is a real estate dictionary, thesaurus and encyclopedia rolled into one. With over 7,000 entries, it is a one-volume irreplaceable reference work book for the student, teacher, general consumer and real-estate, financial and law professionals. This completed book-which includes a preface; a table of contents, a Spanish index and two appendixes is designed to satisfy the need of the enormous Hispanic bilingual market for accurate English definitions and Spanish translations. This book has no competitors. In English, the closest competitor is Barron's "Dictionary of Real Estate Terms," but that is available only in English. The only bilingual book currently available, "Bienes Raices": An English-Spanish Real Estate Dictionary (Dearborn 1996), defines in ungrammatical Spanish only 800 terms (in 130 pages), compared to more than 3,000 terms in The Bilingual Real Estate Bridge (in over 500 single-spaced manuscript pages, 350,475 words). Under the entry for damages in The Bilingual Real Estate Bridge, for instance, all nine types of damages are listed, under the entry for lease, all lease terms (from absolute net to triple-net) are listed, under quitclaim all grants and conveyances are listed. There is a growing need in the real estate and financial community for a simple way to translate technical real-estate terms for the Hispanic population, not only in the United States but in Canada as well. The Spanish Index makes the book useful for speakers of both languages, English speaking only and Spanish-speaking only and extends the market to all of Latin America and Spain. According to the 2000 U.S. CensusBureau, the Hispanic population now comprises 12.4% of the U. S. Population. It is projected that Hispanic purchasing power will reach 650 billion in 2006, and over two million Hispanic have some form of college education. This translated into a burgeoning real estate market and means that a reference book like The Bilingual Real Estate Bridge is long overdue.
