Over the course of the first four volumes Verdan has overcome war, massive destruction from the heavens and the rebirth of ancient powers that threaten the fragile peace promised by the Fourth Age. While the Verdan Council attempts to protect the world, a struggle in Izmira occupies many of the kingdom's heroes. Meanwhile, Celecia and Dakoran agree to help the dwarves reclaim Sharalla. If successful, Celecia plans to continue her journey in an attempt to learn how to control her growing mystic ability. And while the humans, elves and dragons seek to make sense of this new world, they unwittingly anger many of the gods. Othan presents an ultimatum. Asac unleashes a curse. Jamut and Kezar seek vengeance. While Mermis remains quiet, it is left to Enya, the goddess not heard from in ages to provide vital information and clues for what is yet to come. In Against All Gods heroes and villains will need to overcome obstacles, both mortal and divine.

During the Vietnam War, young African Americans fought to protect the freedoms of Southeast Asians and died in disproportionate numbers compared to their white counterparts. Despite their sacrifices, black Americans were unable to secure equal rights at home, and because the importance of the war overshadowed the civil rights movement in the minds of politicians and the public, it seemed that further progress might never come. For many African Americans, the bloodshed, loss, and disappointment of war became just another chapter in the history of the civil rights movement. Lawrence Allen Eldridge explores this two-front war, showing how the African American press grappled with the Vietnam War and its impact on the struggle for civil rights. Written in a clear narrative style, Chronicles of a Two-Front War is the first book to examine coverage of the Vietnam War by black news publications, from the Gulf of Tonkin incident in August 1964 to the final withdrawal of American ground forces in the spring of 1973 and the fall of Saigon in the spring of 1975. Eldridge reveals how the black press not only reported the war but also weighed its significance in the context of the civil rights movement. The author researched seventeen African American newspapers, including the Chicago Defender, the Baltimore Afro-American, and the New Courier, and two magazines, Jet and Ebony. He augmented the study with a rich array of primary sources—including interviews with black journalists and editors, oral history collections, the personal papers of key figures in the black press, and government documents, including those from the presidential libraries of Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford—to trace the ups and downs of U.S. domestic and wartime policy especially as it related to the impact of the war on civil rights. Eldridge examines not only the role of reporters during the war, but also those of editors, commentators, and cartoonists. Especially enlightening is the research drawn from extensive oral histories by prominent journalist Ethel Payne, the first African American woman to receive the title of war correspondent. She described a widespread practice in black papers of reworking material from major white papers without providing proper credit, as the demand for news swamped the small budgets and limited staffs of African American papers. The author analyzes both the strengths of the black print media and the weaknesses in their coverage. The black press ultimately viewed the Vietnam War through the lens of African American experience, blaming the war for crippling LBJ’s Great Society and the War on Poverty. Despite its waning hopes for an improved life, the black press soldiered on.

Nat Turner's name rings through American history with a force all its own. Leader of the most important slave rebellion on these shores, variously viewed as a murderer of unarmed women and children, an inspired religious leader, a fanatic—this puzzling figure represents all the terrible complexities of American slavery. And yet we do not know what he looked like, where he is buried, or even whether Nat Turner was his real name. In Nat Turner: A Slave Rebellion in History and Memory, Kenneth S. Greenberg gathers twelve distinguished scholars to offer provocative new insight into the man, his rebellion, and his time, and his place in history. The historians here explore Turner's slave community, discussing the support for his uprising as well as the religious and literary context of his movement. They examine the place of women in his insurrection, and its far-reaching consequences (including an extraordinary 1832 Virginia debate about ridding the state of slavery). Here are discussions of Turner's religious visions—the instructions he received from God to kill all of his white oppressors. Louis Masur places him against the backdrop of the nation's sectional crisis, and Douglas Egerton puts his revolt in the context of rebellions across the Americas. We trace Turner's passage through American memory through fascinating interviews with William Styron on his landmark novel, The Confessions of Nat Turner, and with Dr. Alvin Poussaint, one of the "ten black writers" of the 1960s who bitterly attacked Styron's vision of Turner. Finally, we follow Nat Turner into the world of Hollywood. Nat Turner has always been controversial, an emblem of the searing wound of slavery in American life. This book offers a clear-eyed look at one of the best known and least understood figures in our history.

This two volume study covers the entire spectrum of the black experience in Kentucky from earliest settlement to 1980. Mandated & partially funded by the Kentucky General Assembly in 1978, this path-breaking work is the most comprehensive consideration of the subject ever undertaken. The authors have made effective use of numerous primary sources such as slave diaries, Freedman's Bureau records, church minutes, & collections of personal papers. Volume 1 traces the role of blacks in the explorations of Christopher Gist & Daniel Boone & the institutionalization of slavery in the Commonwealth through emancipation & the beginning of legal segregation. Volume 2 explores the rising tide of racism at the turn of the twentieth century to the civil rights movement in the later decades. The volumes cover such topics as work, living conditions, religion, education, health, the family, & politics. This work fills a long-recognized void in Kentucky history & provides a fascinating picture of the triumphs & tragedies, accomplishments & defeats of the race in its struggle to achieve freedom & equality.
