Book Summary: The classic Western, now newly repackaged as part of Bantam's Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures program--with never-before-seen material from Louis and his son, Beau L'Amour. It began with gold that had once belonged to Montezuma. Stolen and cached in a church in Mexico, it was recovered by two army officers who fled north for the French settlements. Along the way one stabbed the other to death. The remaining officer was eventually killed by Plains Indians, but he buried the treasure just before he died. Now Ronan Chantry, a handful of trappers, and an Irish girl whose father was killed after telling her a few vague landmarks are searching for the lost treasure. But they are not alone. The girl's uncle, Rafen Falvey, wants it, too. Like Chantry, he is well educated, bold, and determined. Under different circumstances the two men might have been friends. But in all likelihood it wouldn't have made any difference. When it comes to gold, even friendship doesn't keep men from killing each other.

Book Summary: Considered one of Marxs most profound monographs and a brilliant history of the proletariat, this 1852 essaywhich originally appeared in Die Revolution magazineis Marxs commentary on the 1851 French coup by Louis Bonaparte, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte, overthrowing the constitution of 1848. Most famous as the source of Marxs dictum that history occurs twice, the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce, this work is better known to historians as a vital early discussion of the politics of fascism in the 20th century, which Bonapartes coup anticipated. Students of Marxs philosophy and readers in modern political movements will find this an enlightening read. Prussian philosopher KARL MARX (1818-1883) was a social scientist, historian, and political revolutionary. He is indisputably the most influential socialist thinker to emerge in the 19th century. Although scholars largely ignored him in his own lifetime, his social, economic, and political ideas gained rapid acceptance in the socialist movement after his death.

Genre: Literary Criticism

Book Summary: The work of Louis-René des Forêts, exemplary in its global austerity, its obsessive but lucid preoccupations, its aesthetically attuned yet unpretentious manner, had received only intermittent, if at times privileged attention until Yves Bonnefoy's subtle and penetrating analyses appeared recently in the Nouvelle Revue Française. Des Forêts' poetics emerges today as at once existentially and aesthetically challenging, contestatory, bleak some would argue, and yet recuperative, resilient, intuitively alert to states of being our century, and even his own work, can find difficult to embrace. The tensions of role playing and authenticity are ever manifest, and simple, transitive depiction vies thus with the intransitivity of fiction. Identity easily dislodges itself and the meaning of our doing is thrown into doubt and disarray. Beyond, but also through such dramas - of man and writer - Des Forêts struggles, however, to stabilise the claims of the kingdoms of love, of other, of otherness; the excarnate tussles with the incarnate; futility stares in amazement upon simplicity, childhood, mystery... John Naughton's study, eloquent, patient, discreet yet deftly perceptive, helps further to restore to Louis-René des Forêts' work a place of honour from which it has, delightfully, honestly, tended to shrink.

Book Summary: Joe Louis held the heavyweight boxing championship longer than any other fighter and defended it a record 25 times. (In the 1930s and 1940s, the owner of the heavyweight title was the most prominent non-team sports competitor.) In addition, Louis helped bridge the gap of understanding between whites and blacks. During World War II he not only raised money for Army and Navy relief and entertained millions of troops as a morale officer, but became a symbol of American hope and strength. This biography of Louis outlines his rise from poverty in Alabama to become the best-known African American of his time and describes how an uneducated man, simple at his core, became so articulate and ended up on the side of right in the battles he fought, with fist or voice.

Book Summary: Le Couronnement de Louis, an anonymous work dating from about 1130 to 1140, is the earliest heroic epic of the William of Orange cycle and therefore lays the foundation for the entire chanson-de-geste genre. It tells the story of William's defense of Louis, son of Charlemagne, during his childhood, and William's heroic deeds as he battles Saracens and other villains. This line-by-line translation closely follows the original Old French, capturing the stylistic features that clearly mark the poem as oral literature. A discussion of the poem's background and themes, the William of Orange cycle, and the chanson-de-geste genre precedes the translation.
