    The essays in this audiobook set out to explore the ways in which Victorians used newspapers to identify the causes of bad behavior and its impacts, and the ways in which they tried to "distance" criminals and those guilty of "bad" behavior from the ordinary members of society, including identification of them as different according to race or sexual orientation. Victorian alarm was about crimes and bad behavior that they saw as new or unique to their period - but that were not new then and that, in slightly different dress, are still causing panic today.

    In the spring of 1789, within weeks of the establishment of the new federal government based on the US Constitution, the Senate and House of Representatives fell into dispute regarding how to address the president. Congress, the press, and individuals debated more than 30 titles, many of which had royal associations and some of which were clearly monarchical. For Fear of an Elective King is Kathleen Bartoloni-Tuazon's rich account of the title controversy and its meanings.

    Raised in depression-era California, Jaqi Wade's family life wasn't easy, but they managed. She married her marine at the end of WWII and set about making a home wherever life took them. She never imagined taking her three children to live in Brazil. No amount of studying could adequately prepare them to deal with the shock of life at a different pace - a different language, a different culture, a different system of measurement where a slight miscalculation could give you five pounds of ground beef instead of one.
