Excerpt from Stories of the American Revolution, Vol. 1The foundation of these stories is historically true. The incidents of home...-life, of the struggles of the women and children who were left to defend themselves as best they could, of the privations, bravery, and heroism of those who never went upon a battlefield, have been too much neglected. The men who shouldered their muskets, and at the peril of their lives went forth to meet the foe, are not likely to be forgotten but the no less heroic deeds of those who were left behind are Ofttimes slighted. We have studied the battlefields sometimes to the exclusion of the lives of the men and the women.The author in putting forth these stories con fesses to one grave fear. He would not in any way enkindle today a feeling of hatred towards the mother country. There are too many reasons why the relations between the two lands should be, and should continue to be, friendly, for him in any way to try to keep alive the feelings which prevailed during the Revolution. The times have changed, and it is to be hoped that we may change with them.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The definitive general history of the Zionist movement, by one of the most distinguished historians of our time. Walter Laqueur tr...aces Zionism from its beginnings—with the emancipation of European Jewry from the ghettos in the wake of the French Revolution—to 1948, when the Zionist dream became a reality. He describes the contributions of such notable figures as Benjamin Disraeli, Moses Hess, Baron Edmond de Rothschild, and Sir Herbert Samuel, and he analyzes the seminal achievements of Theodor Herzl, Chaim Weitzmann, and David Ben Gurion. Laqueur outlines the differences between the various Zionist philosophies of the early twentieth century—socialist, Communist, revisionist, and cultural utopian—and he discusses both the religious and secular Jewish critics of the movement. He concluded with a dramatic account of the cataclysmic events of World War II, the clandestine immigration of Holocaust survivors, the tragic missed opportunities co-existence with both the Arab residents of Palestine and those in the surrounding countries, and the struggle to forge a new state on an ancient land. Laqueur’s new preface analyzes the present-day difficulties, and places them into a fascinating and aluable historical context. read more
