Prior to World War II, international adoption was virtually unknown, but in the twenty-first century, it has become a common practice, touching almost every American. How did the adoption of foreign children by U.S. families become an essential part of American culture in such a short period of time? Rachel Rains Winslow investigates this question, following the trail from Europe to South Korea and then to Vietnam.

Law, Engineering, and the American Right-of-Way: Imagining a More Just Street

Law, Engineering, and the American Right-of-Way: Imagining a More Just Street By David Prytherch
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 215 Pages | ISBN : 3319757040 | 4.1 MB

This book explores the geography of the everyday roadway and contemplates how regulation and design shape our streets. People may question the hegemony of cars, but reimagining public streets is a major conceptual and technical challenge. Drawing from “new mobilities” and transport studies, Prytherch addresses how streets are structured by policy standards; what it means to have a right to the street; and how a more just street would look—in both theory and practice. He summarizes key traffic statutes, case laws, and engineering manuals, and interprets these in relation to mobility rights and justice. At its core, the book moves beyond criticism to highlight emerging movements which aim to develop more complete and livable streets for everyone.

Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream: The Most Revealing Portrait of a President and Presidential Power Ever [Audiobook]

Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream: The Most Revealing Portrait of a President and Presidential Power Ever Written [Audiobook] by Doris Kearns Goodwin
English | October 18th, 2016 | ASIN: B01LXO6E74 | MP3@64 kbps | 17 hrs 2 mins | 468.90 MB
Narrator: Gabra Zackman, Jim Frangione

Doris Kearns Goodwin's classic life of Lyndon Johnson, who presided over the Great Society, the Vietnam War, and other defining moments in the tumultuous 1960s, is a monument in political biography. From the moment the author, then a young woman from Harvard, first encountered President Johnson at a White House dance in the spring of 1967, she became fascinated by the man - his character, his enormous energy and drive, and his manner of wielding these gifts in an endless pursuit of power.

Trace: Memory, History, Race, and the American Landscape [Audiobook] by Lauret Savoy

Narrator: Allyson Johnson

Sand and stone are Earth's fragmented memory. Each of us, too, is a landscape inscribed by memory and loss. One life-defining lesson Lauret Savoy learned as a young girl was this: the American land did not hate. As an educator and Earth historian, she has tracked the continent's past from the relics of deep time; but the paths of ancestors toward her - paths of free and enslaved Africans, colonists from Europe, and peoples indigenous to this land - lie largely eroded and lost.
