Private Bill Legislation:Comprising the Steps Required to Be Taken by Promoters or Opponents of a Private Bill (Classic Reprint) S. B. Bristowe
In 1789, James Madison and James Monroe ran against each other for Congress - the only time that two future presidents have contested a congressional seat. But what was at stake, as author Chris DeRose reveals in Founding Rivals: Madison vs. Monroe, the Bill of Rights, and the Election That Saved a Nation, was more than personal ambition. This was a race that determined the future of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the very definition of the United States of America. Friends and political allies for most of their lives, Madison was the Constitution´s principal author, Monroe one of its leading opponents. Monroe thought the Constitution gave the federal government too much power and failed to guarantee fundamental rights. Madison believed that without the Constitution, the United States would not survive. It was the most important congressional race in American history, more important than all but a few presidential elections, and yet it is one that historians have virtually ignored. In Founding Rivals, DeRose, himself a political strategist who has fought campaigns in Madison and Monroe´s district, relives the campaign, retraces the candidates´ footsteps, and offers the first insightful, comprehensive history of this high-stakes political battle. DeRose reveals: How Madison´s election ensured the passage of a Bill of Rights - and how Monroe´s election would have ensured its failure How Madison came from behind to win a narrow victory (by a margin of only 336 votes) in a district gerrymandered against him How the Bill of Rights emerged as a campaign promise to Virginia´s evangelical Christians Why Madison´s defeat might have led to a new Constitutional Convention - and the breakup of the United States Founding Rivals tells the extraordinary, neglected story of two of America´s most important Founding Fathers. Brought to life by unparalleled res... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Verner. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/002485/bk_tant_002485_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Facing each other are two of the most storied, colorful characters in the history of world heavyweight championship boxing - Primo Carnera, the 263-pound ´´Ambling Alp´´ from Italy, and Max Baer, the handsome, comical glamour boy from California with dynamite in his right hand. Once the star of Italian circus sideshows, the huge Primo Carnera won the heavyweight championship by knocking out Jack Sharkey on June 29, 1933.His opponent, Max Baer was a great natural athlete, blessed by nature with a devastating right hand. Baer was also a playboy, enormously popular with women. Baer became the top contender with his crushing 10-round knockout of Max Schmeling in Yankee Stadium in 1933. 1. Language: English.

John Adams was the leading political figure from New England during the American Revolution, the Constitutional Conventions, and the early presidential races. John Adams was on the Committee of Five chartered to draft the Declaration of Independence. He led the movement to appoint Thomas Jefferson as the drafter of the Declaration, helped steer the draft through the political groups established to review it, and forever after proclaimed it to be the leading document in American history. Likewise, Adams worked closely with James Madison to draft the Constitution and get it approved by the Constitutional Convention. For his service, John Adams was selected as the first vice president of the United States, serving under George Washington. After Washington retired after two terms, John Adams became the second president of the United States and later lost the election of 1800 by a whisker, to his long time friend and political ally/opponent Thomas Jefferson. This recording was done by Sam Goodyear, who regularly appears in plays about Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Abigail Adams in which they review their lives together just before both Adams and Jefferson died - on the same day, July 4, 1826 - 50 years after the Declaration of Independence was released. The Adams/Jefferson letters are considered the outstanding political correspondence of that time. Mr. Goodyear´s performance attests to that conclusion. This audiobook also features a reading of the Declaration of Independence, a document dear to Mr. Adams. A brief biography of John Adams is also narrated by Mr. Goodyear. 1. Language: English.

Politics is war, but in America, one side is doing all the shooting - the liberals. Shell-shocked conservatives blame their failures on the media or on unscrupulous opponents, but they refuse to name the real culprit: themselves. In a book that will shatter the complacency of establishment conservatives, David Horowitz shows how Bill Clinton´s generation, having mastered the art of political war, has spent the last 10 years clobbering the conservatives in and out of government. The best-selling author of Hating Whitey and Other Progressive Causes has the strategy to fight back. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Riggenbach.

Everything you need to know when deciding who you want to be the next President of the United States. This piece endeavors to highlight Hillary Rodham-Clinton accomplishments and qualifications to be President of the United States. While her criticisms and scandals are not avoided, they are also not rehashed ad-nauseum. Furthermore, we explore her political philosophy which is rooted in the Machiavellian ´´realpolitik´´ school of politics. Whether one loves, loathes, or is indifferent about America´s female political powerhouse, it cannot be denied that her list of qualifications and accomplishments to serve as the most powerful person on earth is an impressive one. Moreover, there are two brief lessons on the nature of Machiavellian political theory and the nature of fascism, the latter being a political platform not so subtly espoused by her opponent Donald Trump. Questions about her political morality are raised where appropriate; however, in turn, the Republican and media witch hunts against her and Bill Clinton are addressed as well. It is a clear, factual, and concise effort to push the undecided voter into Hillary´s camp, as we also illustrate the danger presented by Trump´s brand of neo-fascist con-artist politics. In the end, November is just around the corner and the fate of America and the planet for the next four years rides on who is sworn into the presidency in January 2017. 1. Language: English.

The powerful and riveting new audiobook in the multimillion-selling Killing series by Bill O´Reilly and Martin Dugard. Autumn 1944. World War II is nearly over in Europe but is escalating in the Pacific, where American soldiers face an opponent who will go to any length to avoid defeat. The Japanese army follows the samurai code of Bushido, stipulating that surrender is a form of dishonor. Killing the Rising Sun takes listeners to the bloody tropical-island battlefields of Peleliu and Iwo Jima and to the embattled Philippines, where General Douglas MacArthur has made a triumphant return and is plotting a full-scale invasion of Japan. Across the globe in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and his team of scientists are preparing to test the deadliest weapon known to mankind. In Washington, DC, FDR dies in office, and Harry Truman ascends to the presidency only to face the most important political decision in history: whether to use that weapon. And in Tokyo, Emperor Hirohito, who is considered a deity by his subjects, refuses to surrender despite a massive and mounting death toll. Told in the same pause-resistant style of Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, and Killing Reagan, this epic saga details the final moments of World War II like never before. 1.
