The uniqueness of America has been alternately celebrated and panned, emphasized and denied, for most of the country's history -- both by its own people and by visitors and observers from around the world. The idea of "American exceptionalism" tends to provoke strong feelings, but few are aware of the term's origins or understand its true meaning. Understanding the roots and consequences of America's uniqueness requires a thorough look into the nation's history and Americans' ideas about themselves. Through a masterful analysis of important texts and key documents, Justin B. Litke investigates the symbols that have defined American identity since the colonial era. From the time of the country's founding, the people of the United States have viewed themselves as citizens of a nation blessed by God, and they accordingly sought to serve as an example to others. Litke argues that as the republic developed, Americans came to perceive their country as an active "redeemer nation," responsible for liberating the world from its failings. He introduces and contextualizes the various historical and academic claims about American exceptionalism and offers an original approach to understanding this phenomenon. Today, American historians and politicians still debate the meaning of exceptionalism. Advocates of exceptionalism are often perceived by their opponents as unrealistically patriotic, and Litke's historically and theoretically rich inquiry attempts to reconcile these political and cultural tensions. Republicans of every age have recognized that a people cut off from their history will not long persist in self-government. Twilight of the Republic aims to reinvigorate the tradition that once caused people the world over to envy the American political order.

Everyone knows that a tiny acorn into a mighty oak grows, and a caterpillar emerges into a butterfly. But in this clever, visually enchanting volume, it's also true that a cow can result in both a bottle of milk and a painting of a cow, and an ape in a jungle may become an urban King Kong. Just as day turns into night and back again, a many-tiered cake is both created and eaten down to a single piece. With simple, graphic illustrations sure to appeal to even the youngest of children, this smart exploration of the fascinating theme of before and after will please the most discerning adult readers, too.

Often, after school, a little girl goes to her grandmother's house, where everything is always the same but, then again, different. One day, she puts her coat on the hook in the hall, pours a glass of milk for herself in the kitchen, and tries to reach the cookie jar on the highest shelf in the pantry. But where is Grandma? Children will love exploring the rooms in Grandma's House, peering through its cutout pages from one room to the next and journeying high up into the foldout attic in search of Grandma. Highly detailed and intricately illustrated in Alice Melvin's trademark style, Grandma's House is another winner from one of today's shining stars of illustration.

Die Mehrheit des Gesundheitspersonals glaubt, dass Mu¨tter im Stillen unterwiesen werden mu¨ssen. Dieses Buch liefert neue wissenschaftliche Belege, die zeigen, dass das Wissen, wie gestillt wird, Mu¨ttern und Babys angeboren ist, und stellt ein neues Konzept vor: das Intuitive Stillen. Intuitives Stillen ist ein Sammelbegriff fu¨r optimale Verhaltenszustände und Positionen zum Stillen, deren Aufeinandereinwirken spontane Verhaltensmuster bei Mu¨ttern und Babys auslöst, die ihnen helfen, mit dem Stillen zu beginnen. Intuitives Stillen ist schnell und einfach umzusetzen. Die meisten Mu¨tter und Babys nehmen selbsttätig die richtige Position ein, wenn dies ohne fremdes Eingreifen von außen zugelassen wird. Die Aufgabe des Gesundheitspersonals besteht darin, die auslösenden Mechanismen zu verstehen und so zu lernen, wie sie Mu¨ttern und Babys helfen können, das zu machen, was diese intuitiv tun wollen. Dieses Buch stärkt das Vertrauen in die biologische Basis des Stillens und die angeborene Stillfähigkeit der Mu¨tter. Dr. Suzanne Colson ist eine meiner Heldinnen, weil ihre aufmerksame und sorgfältige Forschung und die Schlussfolgerungen, die sie daraus gezogen hat, endlich gesunden Menschenverstand in die Diskussion u¨ber das Stillen gebracht hat. Ina May Gaskin, Hebamme und Autorin von Spirituelle Hebammen, Praktische Hebammen, Die selbstbestimmte Geburt und Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding Der französische Geburtshelfer und Colsons Mentor, Michel Odent, veränderte unsere Art und Weise u¨ber die Geburt zu denken. Mit diesem Buch unternimmt Suzanne Colson dasselbe fu¨r das Stillen. Machen Sie sich bereit, viele Ihrer grundlegenden Annahmen u¨ber das Stillen zu u¨berdenken - so, wie ich es getan habe - und lernen Sie einige revolutionäre, neue Wege, um Mu¨ttern und Babys zu helfen. Dieses Buch wird Ihr Leben verändern! Nancy Mohrbacher, IBCLC, FILCA, Co-Autorin von Breastfeeding Answers Made Simple und Breastfeeding Made Simple
