“A fascinating collection of essays” by eminent historians exploring how we teach, remember, and confront the history and legacy of American slavery (Booklist Online). In recent years, the culture wars have called into question the way America’s history of slavery is depicted in books, films, television programs, historical sites, and museums. In the first attempt to examine the historiography of slavery, this unique collection of essays looks at recent controversies that have played out in the public arena, with contributions by such noted historians as Ira Berlin, David W. Blight, and Gary B. Nash. From the cancellation of the Library of Congress’s “Back of the Big House” slavery exhibit at the request of the institution’s African American employees, who found the visual images of slavery too distressing, to the public reaction to DNA findings confirming Thomas Jefferson’s relationship with his slave Sally Hemings, Slavery and Public History takes on contemporary reactions to the fundamental contradiction of American history—the existence of slavery in a country dedicated to freedom—and offers a bracing analysis of how Americans choose to remember the past, and how those choices influence our politics and culture. “Americans seem perpetually surprised by slavery—its extent (North as well as South), its span (over half of our four centuries of Anglo settlement), and its continuing influence. The wide-ranging yet connected essays in [this book] will help us all to remember and understand.” —James W. Loewen, author of Sundown Towns

I would like these two testimonials to be on the back of the book to explain the benefits of buying the book. "If you are trying to create and nurture an intimate relationship with your lover, "GETTING THROUGH THE TOUGH STUFF" is the best communication book you can find and I don't say this lightly. It is the mother of all communication techniques. Use these skills and you will build an intimate relationship that creates wisdom, passion and maturity in you and your partner. I don't think you can create an intimate relationship, as a mature person, without them. Jack Tannenbaum is a master teacher and he makes the learning curve safe, manageable and clear better than anyone I know." Philip Belove, Ed.D., psychologist and creator of www.datingatmidlife.com, Director of the Midlife Learning Institute. Working with Jack doing the RAP Process helped bring my wife Rosalie and me much closer together. I found the RAP Process simple, powerful and effective and believe that Jack is a wonderful communicator of this essential information. I believe that Jack Tannenbaum is a gifted teacher and that he gives his wisdom lovingly and without ego. My wife and I lead workshops around the world and we found that his approach, the RAP Process has been well integrated into our lives and our teaching.

Our little hero is growing up in a world that can seem big, loud, and scary. Some people tell him he's too small, too young, or too whatever. But when he puts on his cape and learns to play through the fearless traits of his superhero stuffed animal, Captain Storm, he finds the courage and resilience to show up in a more brave way and ultimately unlocks his heroic self. This children's book captures the big idea nested in the already Wall Street Journal and Publisher's Weekly bestseller, The Alter Ego Effect, from award-winning Performance & Mental Game Coach to Olympians, leaders & public figures, Todd Herman. What's the big idea? Humans find out what they're made of when they play with the idea of acting through the abilities of someone or something else they admire. And kids are better at it than adults. Little kids will enjoy following the story of Captain Storm, who makes his way through a maze of adventures and everyday challenges. This fun read will inspire them to believe in themselves and face down tough stuff with more grit.
