The Teapot Dome Scandal how big oil bought the Harding White House and tried to steal the country by Laton McCartney ( Recording )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 124 libraries worldwide
In The Teapot Dome Scandal, acclaimed author Laton McCartney tells the amazing, complex, and at times ribald story of how Big Oil handpicked Warren G. Harding, an obscure Ohio senator, to serve as our twenty-third president. Harding and his so-called "oil cabinet" made it possible for the oilmen to secure vast oil reserves that had been set aside for use by the U.S. Navy. In exchange, the oilmen paid off senior government officials, bribed newspaper publishers, and covered the GOP campaign debt. When news of the scandal finally emerged, the consequences were disastrous for the nation and for the principles in the plot to bilk the taxpayers: Harding's administration was hamstrung; Americans' confidence in their government plummeted; Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall was indicted, convicted, and incarcerated; and others implicated in the affair suffered similarly dire fates. Stonewalling by members of Harding's circle kept a lid on the story--witnesses developed "faulty" memories or fled the country, and important documents went missing--but contemporary records newly made available to McCartney reveal a shocking, revelatory picture of just how far-reaching the affair was, how high the stakes, and how powerful the conspirators.--From publisher description.

The American Civil War conjures images of bloody battlefields in the eastern United States. Few are aware of the equally important diplomatic and intelligence contest between the North and South in Europe. While the Confederacy eagerly sought the approval of Great Britain as a strategic ally, the Union utilized diplomacy and espionage to avert both the construction of a Confederate navy and the threat of war with England.

The buried book [the loss and rediscovery of the great Epic of Gilgamesh by David Damrosch ( Recording )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 73 libraries worldwide
Composed by a poet and priest in Middle Babylonia around 1200 BCE, the Epic of Gilgamesh foreshadowed later stories that would become as fundamental as any in human history, the Odyssey and the Bible. But in 600 BCE, the clay tablets that bore the story were lost--buried beneath ashes and ruins when the library of King Ashurbanipal was sacked in a raid. This book begins with the rediscovery of the epic and its decipherment in 1872 by George Smith, a brilliant self-taught linguist, who created a sensation when he discovered Gilgamesh among thousands of undistinguished tablets in the British Museum. From there the story goes backward in time, all the way to Gilgamesh himself.--From publisher description.
FDR's folly how Roosevelt and his New Deal prolonged the Great Depression by Jim Powell ( Recording )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
Think FDR was a great president? Think again. In the minds of historians and the American public alike, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was one of our greatest presidents, not least because he supposedly saved America from the Great Depression. But as historian Jim Powell reveals in this groundbreaking book, Roosevelt's New Deal policies actually prolonged and exacerbated the economic disaster, swelled the federal government, and prevented the country form turning around quickly. In today's turbulent domestic and global environment, eerily similar to that of the 1930s, it's more important than ever before to uncover and understand the truth of our history, lest we be doomed to repeat it. You'll never look at FDR in the same way again.

Drawing on a profound understanding of history and geopolitical patterns dating back to the Roman Empire, he shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, experiencing the dawn of a new historical cycle: The U.S.-Jihadist war will conclude--replaced by a second confrontation with Russia.China will undergo a major extended internal crisis, and Mexico will emerge as an important world power. There will be at least one global war occurring toward the middle of the century, but armies will be much smaller and wars less deadly.
