6/24/06 - Rum is more than just a delicious drink. It helped to shape the modern world. Ian Williams's book, Rum, as biting, multifaceted, and warm-spirited as the drink itself - triumphantly restores rum's rightful place in history. It takes us from its origins in the plantations of Barbados through Puritan and Revolutionary New England, to Voodoo rites in modern Haiti and across the Florida straits where Fidel and the Bacardi family are still fighting over the rights to the ingredients for a Cuba Libre.

5/2/06 - America's popular memory of the Revolutionary War casts New England minutemen facing off against redcoats at Concord Bridge and George Washington's frostbitten soldiers huddled together at Valley Forge, but The Southern Strategy, David K. Wilson's new study challenges the generally accepted notion that the war was fought primarily in the North. Wilson considers the waging of war in the southern colonies during the critical and often overlooked period from 1775 to the spring of 1780.
