More Info 1861: Civil War Beginnings (Civil War Year by Year Book 1)
by Nick VulichHistory Blogger

Think you know what started the Civil War?

In hindsight, we can say no one man or event served as a catalyst for the Civil War. It was not the John Brown Raid, no matter how many historians say it was the pivotal event. It was not the election of Abraham Lincoln, and the war was not about slavery—not in the beginning anyway.

The Civil War got its start seventy-three years earlier when the Founding Fathers set aside the hot potato that was slavery so they could ratify the Constitution. The signers knew they were passing the issue on to a future generation. Their hope was their progeny could...

More Info Counterinsurgency Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam: Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife
by John Nagl

Armies are invariably accused of preparing to fight the last war. Nagl examines how armies learn during the course of conflicts for which they are initially unprepared in organization, training, and mindset. He compares the development of counterinsurgency doctrine and practice in the Malayan Emergency from 1948-1960 with that developed in the Vietnam Conflict from 1950-1975, through use of archival sources and interviews with participants in both conflicts. In examining these two events, he argues that organizational culture is the key variable in determining the success or failure of...
More Info The Craftsman
by Richard Sennett

Craftsmanship, says Richard Sennett, names the basic human impulse to do a job well for its own sake, and good craftsmanship involves developing skills and focusing on the work rather than ourselves. The computer programmer, the doctor, the artist, and even the parent and citizen all engage in a craftsman’s work. In this thought-provoking book, Sennett explores the work of craftsmen past and present, identifies deep connections between material consciousness and ethical values, and challenges received ideas about what constitutes good work in today’s world. The Craftsman engages the many...
