    In this spellbinding new history, David Goldfield offers the first major new interpretation of the Civil War era since James M. McPherson's Battle Cry of Freedom. Where past scholars have interpreted the war as a triumph of freedom, Goldfield sees it as America's greatest failure: the result of a breakdown caused by the infusion of evangelical religion into the public sphere.

    What did you love best about America Aflame?

    All the factors religion played into the events leading up to the Civil War, I had listened too Battle Cry of Freedom, and these two audio books will give a great education on the civil war.

    The burning of the Ursuline Convent in Boston


    What about David Drummond’s performance did you like?

    A even paced voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was good and interesting but 27 or so hours to sit and listen it is not.

    Story
    (87)

    Almost everything about our day-to-day lives - and the broader scheme of human culture - can be found on the Internet. But what is it physically? And where is it really? Our mental map of the network is as blank as the map of the ocean that Columbus carried on his first Atlantic voyage. The Internet, its material nuts and bolts, is an unexplored territory. Until now. In Tubes, Andrew Blum goes inside the Internet's physical infrastructure and flips on the lights, revealing a fresh look at the online world we think we know.
