More > neighbors and the United States; it is tempting to think our times are about to rhyme with a decade of similar woes—the disorderly 1930s. Might we again be drifting toward some new form of mortal national combat?

Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand.

More > and small ice floes that still snarled the harbor. They were on a dangerous mission: to bring fire into the belly of the U.S. Navy’s stronghold at Sackets Harbor, New York. British Admiral Sir James Yeo hoped to cripple the American Navy with a single thrust to the heart; to destroy the one ship that could pitch the balance of naval power back to America once more, the USS Superior. Now America’s first arms race came down to one ship. Commodore Isaac Chauncey was determined to finish her at all costs. His British enemy was equally determined to stop him. Chauncey would have to wage a desperate battle—against weather and wilderness, civilian resistance and spies, the bureaucratic incompetence and corruption of his own Navy, and the mightiest navy in the world—to launch the USS Superior!
