The River War
River War, The

When the first edition of The River War was published in 1899, the publisher advertised it as an October book, but Churchill was disappointed when a delay in printing the book postponed its arrival until November. By then he was already in South Africa to cover his next war for the Morning Post and missed the book launch in London. Within ten days he was a prisoner of the Boers, so he had to wait till he escaped from Pretoria to receive the congratulations of his friends on the publication of his book.
     In the case of the reappearance of this book in its unabridged version 121 years later, the editor, publisher, and printer have experienced similar complications and vicissitudes in getting this complicated book ready for its scheduled publication date on November 30, but these have now been surmounted and the book will be available in February.

The late historian Marvin O’Connell left a legacy of brilliant prose and pictures of the past, and in this book the reader at long last has access to O’Connell’s own story. Fr. Bill Miscamble, a noted historian and scholar in his own right, attributes to O’Connell the title ‘Master’ above all on account of his ability to know what matters and then write about it “in the way that all great stories are told.”

Mystery of Communion, The

The brevity of this work limits the amount of citations and textual references given, and Maspero instead urges the reader to study the book alongside Scripture. His manner of writing respects the impossibility of speaking of God in his immanence, but he nonetheless carves out a place for the Trinity in the human intellect, a place where the Jewish and Christian God might be encountered.

Highlights of this first volume, The Waiting World, include following revelation as it first moved uncertain hearts to write and then to offer explicit witness. In this first installment, Patrick sets the groundwork for following the faith and history of Israel to Justin Martyr’s great claim that what is true belongs to Christians.

Homo Americanus
Homo Americanus

Janowski all at once brazen and out of bounds states what he calls the obvious and unthinkable truth: In the United States, we are already living in a totalitarian reality. The American citizen, the Homo Americanus, is an ideological being who is no longer good or bad, reasonable or irrational, proper or improper except when measured against the objectives of the dominating egalitarian mentality that American democracy has successfully incubated. American democracy has done what other despotic regimes have likewise achieved––namely, taken hold of the individual and forced him to renounce (or forget) his greatness, pursuit of virtue and his orientation toward history and Tradition.
