This book was written in 1986, and since that time, the printing industry has undergone its own technological evolution. Many of the steps described here are now computerized. But, assuming I did want to know how a book was created in the '80s, I still have concerns. 1) The author, the editor, and the publisher are all females. That's fine if I'm reading to girls, but a male should have had one of these roles. 2) The writing process goes too smoothly. Only a few weeks from inspiration to completio
Richard Hofstader's last book, written in 1968, was a look back at the great Progressive-era historians who influenced his work and, more so than any subsequent generation of historians, the debates of the public at large in their era. Turner, Beard, and Parrington all took history-writing out of the almost mythical or providential realm that it once held and posited American history as part of an eternal struggle between different classes and types.
It was both a semi-Marxist and semi-sociological look at history, and Hofstader points out the benefits and the shortcomings of such a stance. The book tends to ramble quite a bit, but this is certainly a fresh look at these figures.
For people who spend so much time writing, historians themselves are rarely written about, and this critique cum biography is an interesting attempt to see how lives are shaped by historical forces, and then how they try to shape them, or at least their meaning.

Excerpt from Lives of Female Mormons: A Narrative of Facts Stranger Than Fiction The institution of slavery in a free government is a paradox, and gives the lie to the professions the authors of this republic made, else have we shamefully perverted their gifts - which, it is not hard to say. Territory which they pledged to be free has been overshadowed by the darkness of African servitude the political inﬂuence of such an institution has grown apace with each additional State adopting negro prop erty as a basis of representation in Congress - and thus has the free government of our fathers become but free in form, to protect a tyranny such as no civilized nation on the face of this earth would tolerate. The responsibility of such a perversion rests with the degenerate sons of noble sires, and the future will not fail to fasten the record where it belongs.

To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on humans? To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power? That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous. I play hero to thousands, but am known to none.
And I love every minutes of it. Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to my worst nightmare: a conservative woman in a button-down shirt. Or in Amanda's case, one buttoned all the way up to her chin. She's smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal--in other words, me. My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I stand for. Not to mention the last time I fell in love it cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul. Yet every time I look at her, I find myself wanting to try again. Wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist. Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there's any way a woman like Amanda can love a man whose battle scars run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so savage that he's not sure it will ever beat again.
