Texas Hold 'Em: LBJ confronts Cuba By Gareth J. Hughes
eBook (PDF): $0.00
(1 Ratings)
It is often forgotten that, at the start of Lyndon Johnson’s Presidency, Cuba, after Moscow, was the number one concern for U.S. foreign policy analysts and Latin American hemispheric... More > relations. The fear of ‘another Cuba’ would haunt LBJ and framed his response to the Dominican crisis. LBJ’s task in Cuba was far from straight forward and his options vast, but at the same time consequence-laden. How did LBJ fundamentally frame the Cuban problem and how did this impinge upon his actions toward that small revolutionary state only 90 miles from Florida? What did he do, why and what does this tell us about the foreign policy of a much-maligned President? In this overview analysis Hughes outlines how LBJ was brilliant and fortunate, hesitant and decisive, attentive and passive, insightful and prone to muddled analogies. His actions were the epitome of his own disposition. This is the story of how LBJ neutered Fidel Castro.< Less

Vanishing England By Peter Hempson Ditchfield

This book is intended not to raise fears but to record facts. We wish to describe with pen and pencil those features of England which are gradually disappearing, and to preserve the memory of them.... More > It may be said that we have begun our quest too late; that so much has already vanished that it is hardly worth while to record what is left. Although much has gone, there is still, however, much remaining that is good, that reveals the artistic skill and taste of our forefathers, and recalls the wonders of old-time. It will be our endeavour to tell of the old country houses that Time has spared, the cottages that grace the village green, the stern grey walls that still guard some few of our towns, the old moot halls and public buildings. We shall see the old-time farmers and rustics gathering together at fair and market, their games and sports and merry-makings, and whatever relics of old English life have been left for an artist and scribe of the twentieth century to record.< Less
