The Orange Bowl Stadium. Put to rest and carted away in 2008. It was an example of a bygone era in sports stadium architecture, when simple design provided a basic function. A place just for football born in the late 1930's. The book is not about football so much, but a visual me...mory for the scores of fans who may not have realized the last game attended would be their final time in the stadium. The first chapter revisits my family's photos from the 1939 game to the 1970's. Chapter Two begins with the condition of the stadium in January, 2008, and leads to the demolition period. Finally, a chapter of aerial images compiled through the years completes the story. I attempted to capture many of the seat locations and the view to the field. Individual fine art prints are available from any image in the book. The architectural survey was completed in January, 2008, and demolition finished in late spring.Read more

The Socialist Revolutionaries (SRs) were the largest political party in Russia in the crucial revolutionary year of 1917. Heirs to the legacy of the People's Will movement, the SRs were unabashed proponents of peasant rebellion and revolutionary terror, emphasizing the socialist ...transformation of the countryside and a democratic system of government as their political goals. They offered a compelling, but still socialist, alternative to the Bolsheviks, yet by the early 1920s their party was shattered and its members were branded as enemies of the revolution. In 1922, the SR leaders became the first fellow socialists to be condemned by the Bolsheviks as counter-revolutionaries in the prototypical Soviet show trial. Scott B. Smith presents both a convincing account of the defeat of the SRs and a deeper analysis of the significance of the political dynamics of the Civil War for subsequent Soviet history. Smith reveals a complex and nuanced picture of the postrevolutionary struggle and demonstrates that the Civil War--and in particular the struggle with the SRs--was the formative experience of the Bolshevik party and the Soviet state.Read more

In ancient Rome, an alter ego, or the other I, was considered to be not only a second self but also a trusted friend. It was believed to be distinct from a person's normal personality. Collected in this book are stories of heroes who not only battle injustice, criminals and super...-villains; but they also must battle their other selves. These heroes learn that sometimes the hardest foe to defeat is the one that lies within. Alter Egos is back in this second volume with sensational short stories and poems written by some of today's best sci-fi and action authors including a story by David J. Fielding, better known as Zordon from the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers.Read more
