    By the end of World War I, Albert Einstein had become the face of the new science of theoretical physics and had made some powerful enemies. One of those enemies, Nobel Prize winner Philipp Lenard, spent a career trying to discredit him. Their story of conflict, pitting Germany's most widely celebrated Jew against the Nazi scientist who was to become Hitler's chief advisor on physics, had an impact far exceeding what the scientific community felt at the time.

    Politics are a detail in the story of what we call ideology. After a six-year effort that involved three tours of the US, help from dozens of the world's top academic experts, and hundreds of interviews with conservatives, writer and researcher J. Scott Wagner brings us on a rollicking tour of the conservative mind, looking at them through the lens of five sciences: neurology/cognitive psychology, personality, bias, social conformity, and morality.

    Flatboats were the most prolific type of vessel on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers during the early 1800s. Thousands of these boats descended the two rivers each year, carrying not only valuable cargo to New Orleans but also western-bound emigrants to newly opened territories. By the late 1800s, flatboats had completely disappeared, and no intact examples were known to exist. That changed in 2000, when local residents found a wreck on the Ohio River shoreline in Illinois.
