Balkoski, Joseph
By 1945, the US Army had sixty-eight infantry divisions, forty-two of which fought in the great campaign in north-west Europe that began with the amphibious landings on D-Day and ended eleven months later with Germany's surrender. This book examines the experience of one infantry division -- the 29th -- during forty-five days of combat from Omaha Beach on D-Day to the liberation at St Lô. Using interviews, official records and unit histories and supplementing his narrative with meticulously detailed maps, Balkoski follows the 29th from the bloody landings at Omaha through the hedgerows of Normandy, illustrating the brutal realities of life on the front line.304pp.

Edited By Van Densen,W.L.T. And Morris,M.J.
A spin-off from the damming of rivers to generate power should be increased fish production in the new reservoir habitat thus created. But the native fish fauna of Southeast Asia is predominantly riverine, with few species adapted to living in still, open water. In contrast, Africa has many such species and long established experience of lake fisheries. This book brings together a wide spectrum of scattered and previously unpublished information which will be invaluable to the interchange of information on the management of tropical freshwater fisheries in both continents.432pp.N.B.TWO SMALL CLOSED TEARS TO TOP EDGE FRONT D/J.

Nissimi, Hilda
This book tells the little-known story of a fascinating crypto-Jewish community through two centuries and three continents. Beginning as a precarious settlement of a few families in mid-eighteenth-century Mashhad, an Islamic holy city in northern Iran, the community grew into a closely-knit group in response to their forced conversion to Islam in 1839. Muslim hostility and a culture of memory sustained by intra-communal marriages reinforced their separate religious identity, vesting it in strong family and communal loyalty. Mashhadi women became the main agents of the cultural transmission of communal identity and achieved social roles and high status uncharacteristic for contemporary Jewish and Muslim communities. The Mashhadis maintained a double identity - upholding Islam in public while tenaciously holding onto their Jewish identity in secret. The exodus from Mashhad after 1946 relocated the communal centre to Tehran, and later to Israel and after the Khomeini revolution to New York. The relationship between the formation and retention of communal identity and memory practices - with interconnected issues of religion and gender - draws upon existing research on other crypto-faith communities, such as the Judeoconversos, the Moriscos, and the French Protestants, who through the special blend of memory-faith and ethnicity emerged strengthened from their underground period. For the immigration period, the author challenges the old paradigm that "modernity and religion are mutually exclusive". The book also explores the sometimes uncomfortable yet intimate relationships that exist between seemingly incompatible ways of seeing the past, both secular and religious.180pp.

Blau, Joseph L.
History's first national party with roots in a mass electorate, the Jacksonian Democrats were not so much unified around a shared policy program as they were a patchwork of conflicting interests. They came together most vigorously in the name of what they opposed: the emerging financial and commercial monopolies, the old Washington dynasty, and any whiff of privilege or aristocracy. Yet they demonstrated how even unprincipled national parties could invigorate representative democracy and repair the growing rifts between Northern industrialists, the Old South, and the developing West. These texts show the Jacksonian movement as a cross-section of nineteenth century America. A picture of popular democracy in its infancy, they together form a study of unity in diversity. 383pp. N.B. Light scratch to rear cover.
