Grant and Lee: Victorious American and Vanquished Virginian is a comprehensive, multi-theater, war-long comparison of the command skills of Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee. Written by Edward H. Bonekemper III, Grant and Lee clarifies the impact both generals had on the outcome of the Civil War—namely, the assistance that Lee provided to Grant by Lee's excessive casualties in Virginia, the consequent drain of Confederate resources from Grant's battlefronts, and Lee's refusal and delay of reinforcements to the combat areas where Grant was operating. The reader will be left astounded by the level of aggression both generals employed to secure victory for their respective causes, as Bonekemper demonstrates that Grant was a national general whose tactics were consistent with acheiving Union victory, whereas Lee's own priorities constantly undermined the Confederacy's chances of winning the war. Building on detailed accounts of both generals' major campaigns and battles, this book provides a detailed comparison of the primary military and personal traits of the two men. That analysis supports the preface discussion and the chapter-by-chapter conclusions that Grant did what the North needed to do to win the war: be aggressive, eliminate enemy armies, and do so with minimal casualties (154,000), while Lee was too offensive for the undermanned Confederacy, suffered intolerable casualties (209,000), and allowed his obsession with the Commonwealth of Virginia to obscure the broader interests of the Confederacy. In addition, readers will find interest in the 18 highly detailed and revealing battle maps, as well as in a comprehensive set of appendices that describes the casualties incurred by each army, battle by battle.

On May 3, 1861, Illinois Governor Richard Yates appointed a Mexican War veteran with Democratic sympathies and southern ties to be chief mustering officer at Camp Yates in Springfield. And so began Ulysses S. Grant’s reluctantly revived military career. Over the next three years, Grant would have a chance to display a myriad of talents few suspected, including a remarkable penchant for organization, decided skill at written communication and a quick understanding of military potential. By March 1864, Grant had risen to lieutenant general, a rank last held by George Washington. This biography details the three years which saw Ulysses S. Grant’s extraordinary rise from mediocre shop clerk to general-in-chief of the U.S. Army. Beginning with Grant’s work at his family’s leather shop in Galena, Illinois, it records his re-entry into a military life as a volunteer from Illinois. Grant’s most spectacular campaigns, including Vicksburg and Chattanooga, are discussed in depth. Special emphasis is placed on events such as politicking, rumors, and intrigue which took place between the various battles. Other topics include Grant’s personal qualities and background, his extraordinary good fortune and the general’s informal and unorthodox command style. The work is indexed.

“Everybody wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant.” —Cary Grant He is Hollywood’s most fascinating and timeless star. Although he came to personify the debonair American, Cary Grant was born Archibald Leach on January 18, 1904, in the seaport village of Bristol, England. Combining the captivating beauty of silent-screen legend Rudolph Valentino with the masculine irresistibility of Clark Gable, Grant emerged as Hollywood’s quintessential leading man. Today, “the man from dream city,” as critic Pauline Kael once described him, remains forever young, an icon of quick wit, romantic charm, and urbane sophistication, the epitome of male physical perfection. Yet beneath this idealized movie image was a conflicted man struggling to balance fame with a desire for an intensely private life separate from the “Cary Grant” persona celebrated by directors and movie studios. Exploring Grant’s troubled childhood, ambiguous sexuality, and lifelong insecurities as well as the magical amalgam of characteristics that allowed him to remain Hollywood’s favorite romantic lead for more than thirty-five years, Cary Grant is the definitive examination of every aspect of Grant’s professional and private life, and the first to reveal the man behind the movie star. Working with the most talented directors of his time, Grant starred in an astonishing seventy-two films, ranging from his groundbreaking comedic roles in such classics as Bringing Up Baby (Howard Hawks) and The Philadelphia Story (George Cukor) to the darker, unforgettable characters of Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion and Notorious, culminating in the consummate sophisticates of An Affair to Remember (Leo McCarey), North by Northwest (Hitchcock), and Charade (Stanley Donen). The camera loved Grant, and his magnetism helped illuminate his leading ladies, some of the most glamorous women ever to grace the silver screen: Mae West, Irene Dunne, Katharine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly, and Sophia Loren, among others. Yet, because of his pioneering role as an independent player, Grant was repeatedly denied the Oscar he coveted—a snub from the Academy that would last until 1970, when he graciously accepted a special lifetime achievement award. Grant’s sparkling image on-screen hid a tumultuous personal life that he tried desperately to keep out of the public eye, including his controversial eleven-year relationship with Randolph Scott, five marriages, and numerous affairs. Rigorously researched and elegantly written, Cary Grant: A Biography is a complete, nuanced portrait of the greatest Hollywood star in cinema history. From the Hardcover edition.

The Dept. of Educ. (DoE) awards $45 billion in grants each year to school districts, states, and other entities. In addition, the Amer. Recovery and Reinvest. Act of 2009 provided an additional $97 billion in grant funding. In a series of reports from 2002 to 2009, DoE's Inspector General cited a number of grantees for failing to comply with financial and programmatic requirements of their grant agreements. This report determined: (1) what progress DoE has made in implementing a risk-based approach to grant monitoring; (2) to what extent DoE's program offices have the expertise necessary to monitor grantees' compliance with grant program requirements; and (3) to what extent info. is shared within DoE to ensure the effectiveness of grant monitoring.

By late 1878, after a year and a half abroad, Ulysses S. Grant had visited every country in Europe, and he was homesick. ?I have seen nothing to make me regret that I am an American. Our country: its resources; energy, inginuity and intelligence of the people, &c. is more appreciated abroad than at home.” Grant decided to return through Asia. After ?a delightful run” to Dublin and northern Ireland, he left Paris with his wife Julia, son Frederick, and a few friends in January, 1879. Heading east, Grant kept a travel diary. On the voyage to Bombay, travelers socialized on deck. ?Four of the lady passengers and one of the gentlemen Amature Artists, amused themselves by sketching me.” Crossing India overland, the Grant party rode elephants, visited the Taj Mahal, and witnessed Hindu ceremonies. From Calcutta, Grant sailed for Burma, Singapore, and Siam, where he found young King Chulalongkorn ?quite impressive in appearance and intelligent.” After stops at Hong Kong and Canton, Grant wrote: ?I am satisfied that the Chinese are badly treated at home by europeans as well as when they emigrate.” At Tientsin, Grant befriended Viceroy Li Hung-chang, ?probably the most intelligent and most advanced ruler?if not man?in China,” and at Peking he agreed to mediate a dispute with Japan over the Ryukyu Islands. While China languished, Japan had made ?almost inconceivable” progress since the 1868 Meiji Restoration. During a ?very delightful” ten weeks, Grant met the Emperor, visited shrines and hot springs, attended a play and a lantern parade in his honor, and held talks on the Ryukyu dispute. He departed ?with assurances that pleasant recollections of my present visit will not vanish while my life lasts.” Throngs welcomed Grant to San Francisco on September 20, 1879. Grant assured all that the United States stood second to none in the world in its people, institutions, and ideals. He told Confederate veterans: ?I have an abiding faith that we will remain together in future harmony.” Grant toured Yosemite and visited scenes from his army days in Oregon and Washington Territory, then headed east again, his train cheered at every stop. At Galena and Chicago he basked in the warmth of ovations and old friends. Another series of crowds and banquets culminated in December at Philadelphia, where Grant completed his circuit of the globe. As 1880 began, Grant headed south. He marveled at Florida's potential and groused at Cuba's heat, then reached Mexico, a country he had long ago admired as part of an occupying army. ?The climate is perfection, the scenery unsurpassed and the people as clever and hospitable as it is possible for them to be.” Grant met influential leaders, toured silver mines and old battlefields, and encouraged development. Grant returned to New Orleans and more banquets and speeches, touting reconciliation and praising black advancement. His progress north took on the air of a campaign as the Republican convention loomed. Newspapers debated a third term while Grant kept silent. In June, at Chicago, delegates split between Grant and James G. Blaine, and settled on dark horse James A. Garfield. Grant expressed relief at avoiding a ?most violent campaign.” Grant spent the summer in the Rocky Mountains inspecting mines, sometimes by pack mule, for possible investments. In September, back in Galena, he rejoined the political fray, attacking Garfield's opponent, Major General Winfield S. Hancock, in an interview. ?He is the most selfish man I know.... He can not bear to hear anyone else praised, but can take any amount of flattery.” With the election weeks away, and the outcome in doubt, Grant took to the stump. ?I am a Republican,” he told an Ohio crowd, ?as the two great political parties are now divided, because the Republican Party is a national party seeking the greatest good for the greatest number of citizens.”

" George Grant (1918-1988) is the most engaging and provocative writer to have dealt with Canadian politics in the last fifty years. His Lament for a Nation (1965) is an undisputed classic of our nations political literature. An instant best-seller on account of its practical political argument, it has endured as an interpretation of Canadian history and a justification for nationalism in this country. Along with Grants other books, it has also helped to clarify what is meant by the malaise of modernity said to characterize our time, and thus has served to introduce more than a generation of students to the basic questions of political philosophy. This study aims to guide the reader toward a clearer understanding of Grants thought. Focusing on his six short books and some of his most revealing articles and addresses, it serves as both an introduction to and an overview of George Grants career and his many contributions to the fields of political science, philosophy, religion, and Canadian studies. Hugh Donald Forbes relates Grants work to that of three disparate and controversial European thinkers Martin Heidegger, Leo Strauss, and Simone Weil exploring Grant outside of the strictly Canadian framework in which he is normally situated. This volume offers fresh perspective on the work of an important political philosopher. It will prove invaluable reading for students new to the subject as well as for those interested in a comprehensive study of an outstanding Canadian thinker. "
