There is no doubt that the House of Representatives exists and functions in the United States. The fact that few understand how it does exist and function is the subject of this new book. The chapters in this book detail the sometimes arcane procedures and processes of this grunt-type chamber. These are the folks who do the heavy lifting of lawmaking. The Senate may be considered august, especially to its own members, but it is the House which forms the backbone of American democracy at the federal level.

To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the end of the Civil War, Diversion Books is publishing seminal works of the era: stories told by the men and women who led, who fought, and who lived in an America that had come apart at the seams. The events leading up to the Civil War reveal a country divided by more than just a belief in, or revulsion of, slavery. It reveals a country still forming, even as it fissures and breaks apart. It reveals an industrial north and an agricultural south evolving into enemies even as they mutually benefit one another. It reveals politicians playing to their bases, riling up young men especially to take up arms against their fellow countrymen. This astonishing historical work chronicles all this and more, exploring the fractious ideologies and the most important figures who led the country into its bloodiest conflict.

Bernie Sanders zeigt, dass eine wahre gesellschaftliche Erneuerung nur von links geschehen kann. Seine Ideen eines modernen demokratischen Sozialismus sind wichtiger als je zuvor – für die USA und für die ganze Welt. In der führenden Nation des Westens spielen die Belange der Mittelschicht und der Geringverdiener, aber auch die des Umweltschutzes und der Minder heiten eine empörend geringe Rolle. Doch der Sozialist Bernie Sanders kämpft weiter für eine politische Revolution: für eine Ökonomie, die nicht nur Jobs schafft, sondern auch für gerechte Löhne sorgt; für ein Gesundheitswesen, das allen zugute kommt; für den nachhaltigen Schutz unserer Umwelt — und gegen jede Form von Rassismus. Nur so wird es gelingen, den USA und der ganzen Welt eine bessere Zukunft zu schaffen. Sanders’ Buch ist die linkspolitische Agenda für alle, die mit dem Primat der Profitgier und der Willkür des Establishments nicht einverstanden sind und nach neuen Wegen jenseits des Raubtierkapitalismus suchen.

This, the first of two volumes of Liberty and Union, is a comprehensive constitutional history of the United States from the Anglo-American origins of the Constitution through the colonial and antebellum periods, to the Civil War and the consequent restructuring of the nation. Written in a clear and engaging narrative style, it successfully unites thorough chronological coverage with a thematic approach, offering critical analysis of core constitutional history topics, set in the political, social, and economic context that made them constitutional issues in the first place. Combining a thoughtful and balanced narrative with an authoritative stance on key issues, the authors explain the past in the light of the past, without imposing upon it the standards of later generations. Authored by two experienced professors of History and Law this textbook has been thoughtfully constructed to offer an accessible alternative to dense scholarly works – avoiding unnecessary technical jargon, defining legal terms and historical personalities where appropriate, and making explicit connections between constitutional themes and historical events. For students in an undergraduate or postgraduate constitutional history course, or anyone with a general interest in constitutional developments, this book will be essential reading. Useful features include: Full glossary of legal terminology Recommended reading A table of cases Extensive supporting artwork Companion website Useful documents provided: Declaration of Independence Articles of Confederation Constitution of the United States of America Chronological list of Supreme Court justices
