THE CROSS ROADS - PEGGY PHILLIPS KING Summary

This is a story about the memories of an only child growing up on a South Georgia cotton and peanut farm during the Depression and World War II years. Cross Roads kinfolk and cousins were Peggy’s playmates. She speaks about the hardships of picking cotton, stacking peanuts, running a cucumber growing enterprise, and making ends meet with the help of moonshining. It was a long trip to town by horse or mule, so many farmers had small stores for providing the necessary staples and a place for farmers, kinfolk, and farm hands to meet and socialize. Peggy writes about the nature of the school systems, marriage disappointments and successes, raising four children and helping with eight grandchildren. Rural living in hard times brought happy occasions with barbeques, church socials, picnics, dances, movies and constant changes in sweethearts as part of growing up. She lets you in on her personal outlook on Southern living in the days of segregation and the changes to the new order of today. Now she is a leader for family and high school reunions. This book puts us back in focus on historical events that was a part of shaping our lives. This book is so "from the heart". It helps us understand our past and how one fleeting moment can change our whole life. There is no love to compare to a Mother's love, so deeply expressed in this book. It brings back a lot of memories out of the dark recesses of the mind.

Science at the Cross Roads (Routledge Revivals) - N. I. Bukharin et al. Summary

The papers given by the Soviet Delegation to the Second International Congress of the History of Science and Technology in London in 1931, headed by N. I. Bukharin, exerted a profound influence on Western historiography of science. Perhaps the most influential contribution was that of Hessen, who made a long and classical statement of Marxist historiography, taking Isaac Newton as his example. The collection, which appeared in Britain at the height of the Depression, fostered an acute social awareness and a heated debate among many working scientists. Accredited by some as "the starting point of a new evaluation of the history of science", the book reflects the huge social and economic divide between Socialism and Capitalism present at the time of publication, and its influence on intellectual culture and scientific advancement.

The Battle of Brice's Crossroads - Stewart L. Bennett Summary

An insignificant crossroads in northeast Mississippi was an unlikely battleground for one of the most spectacular Confederate victories in the western theater of the Civil War. But that is where two generals determined destiny for their men. Union general Samuel D. Sturgis looked to redeem his past military record, while hard-fighting Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest aimed to drive the Union army out of Mississippi or die trying. In the hot June sun, their armies collided for control of north Mississippi in a story of courage, overwhelming odds and American spirit. Blue Mountain College professor Stewart Bennett retells the day's saga through a wealth of first-person soldier accounts.

Vital Crossroads - Reynolds Mathewson Salerno Summary

Most international historians present the outbreak of World War II as the result of an irreconcilable conflict between Great Britain and Germany. This ubiquitous Anglo-German perspective fails to recognize complex causes and repercussions of international events, misappropriates historical responsibilities, and overlooks many global and imperial factors of the war's origins. Reynolds M. Salerno shows that the situation in the Mediterranean played a decisive role in the European drama of the late 1930s and profoundly influenced the manner in which the Second World War unfolded. Vital Crossroads is the result of the author's remarkable access to and extensive research in twenty-eight archives in five different countries. Concentrating on the period from the Mediterranean crisis of 1935 to Italy's declaration of war in June 1940, Salerno demonstrates that the international politics of pre-World War II Europe--particularly in the Mediterranean--can only be understood as the multilateral interaction of British, French, German, and Italian foreign and defense policies. Control of the Mediterranean, he asserts, was a central concern for the European powers in 1935-40, and a fundamental reason why Europe went to war and why the conflict unfolded as it did. As a result, France and Italy influenced and often determined the nature and direction of Allied and Axis policy to an extent disproportionate to their nations' military and economic strength. Salerno contends that the Allies' reluctance to take decisive action against Fascist Italy in 1939-40 contributed to the fall of France in 1940, Britain's desperate situation in 1940-41, and the post-war collapse of Britain as a world power. At a time when the Allied powers dreaded the ability of the German military to march across the European continent, they also feared that the Italian armed forces would strive to fulfill Mussolini's grand imperial ambitions in the Mediterranean. --Tim Boxer, 16 Minutes Magazine, 6/20/03.

Anglo-American Crossroads - Mark Clapson Summary

The postwar British city was been shaped by many international forces during the last century, but American influences on British urban research and urban planning have been particularly significant. Beginning with debates about reconstruction during the Second World War, Anglo-American Crossroads explores how Americanisation influenced key approaches to town planning, from reconstruction after 1945 to the New Urbanism of the 1990s. Clapson pays particular attention to the relationship between urban sociological research and planning issues since the 1950s. He also addresses the ways in which American developers and planners of new communities looked to the British new towns and garden city movement for inspiration. Using a wide range of sources, from American Foundation Archives to town planning materials and urban sociologies, Anglo-American Crossroads shows that although some things went wrong in translation from the USA to Britain, there were also some important successes within a transatlantic dialogue that was more nuanced than a one-dimensional process of American hegemony.
