"In Time of War: Understanding American Public Opinion from World War II to Iraq" by Adam J. Berinsky
Chicago Studies in American Politics
University of Chicago Press | 2009 | ISBN: 0226043586 | 355 pages | PDF/epub | 3 MB

From World War II to the war in Iraq, periods of international conflict seem like unique moments in U.S. political history—but when it comes to public opinion, they are not. To make this groundbreaking revelation, In Time of War explodes conventional wisdom about American reactions to World War II, as well as the more recent conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Adam Berinsky argues that public response to these crises has been shaped less by their defining characteristics—such as what they cost in lives and resources—than by the same political interests and group affiliations that influence our ideas about domestic issues.

Shakespeare, Sex, and Love

Stanley Wells, "Shakespeare, Sex, and Love"
Oxford University Press, USA | June 1, 2010 | English | ISBN: 0199578591 | 282 pages | PDF | 2 Mb

As anyone who has read the non-Bowdlerized editions of his plays can attest, Shakespeare loved a lusty line. His plays are filled to the brim with bawdy puns and sly double entendres. Just how packed the Bard's plays are becomes quickly clear in Wells' sober, clearly written, scholarly examination of love and lust in Shakespeare's life, times, and work. Wells begins with a quick summary of sexual mores in Shakespeare's England, including the prevalence of the crime of “incontinency”—premarital and extramarital dalliances—in the country in general, and in Shakespeare's Stratford in particular. He then moves on to a brief but fascinating survey of how Shakespeare's contemporaries handled sexual themes.
