In an epic story that spans 150 years and continues to the present day, Iris Chang tells of a people’s search for a better life—the determination of the Chinese to forge an identity and a destiny in a strange land and, often against great obstacles, to find success. She chronicles the many accomplishments in America of Chinese immigrants and their descendents: building the infrastructure of their adopted country, fighting racist and exclusionary laws, walking the racial tightrope between black and white, contributing to major scientific and technological advances, expanding the literary canon, and influencing the way we think about racial and ethnic groups. Interweaving political, social, economic, and cultural history, as well as the stories of individuals, Chang offers a bracing view not only of what it means to be Chinese American, but also of what it is to be American.

Building the American Republic, Volume 2

What was America? The question resounds today more than ever. While countless contemporary textbooks have sought to relate this country's history, most have done so in fragmented, diluted, or unapproachable ways. These two volumes break down all the barriers to a full understanding of America: it has just two authors, each with a strong point of view; it is told in pure narrative form, befitting its riveting story; and it is as low-cost a textbook as there has ever been. Unlike other open access textbooks, Building the Republic is authoritative and coherent. Throughout, Harry Watson and Jane Dailey emphasize the enduring and multifarious influence of religion, the evolution of law and legal norms, and the distinctive history and influence of the South. And they take a capacious view of the role of politics in US history, beyond simple "political history." These two volumes sweep the reader up in the inimitable history of a country forever remaking itself.

The Unredeemed Captive

A Family Story from Early America

Nominated for the National Book Award and winner of the Francis Parkman Prize. The setting for this haunting and encyclopedically researched work of history is colonial Massachusetts, where English Puritans first endeavoured to "civilize" a "savage" native populace. There, in February 1704, a French and Indian war party descended on the village of Deerfield, abducting a Puritan minister and his children. Although John Williams was eventually released, his daughter horrified the family by staying with her captors and marrying a Mohawk husband. Out of this incident, The Bancroft Prize-winning historian John Devos has constructed a gripping narrative that opens a window into North America where English, French, and Native Americans faced one another across gilfs of culture and belief, and sometimes crossed over.

Hill House adalah rumah terpencil yang ganjil nan angker. Ukiran dan lukisan di dalamnya seolah-olah mengamatimu ke mana pun kau pergi, pintu-pintu selalu tertutup sendiri, dan kau selalu merasakan dingin yang menggigit meski duduk di dekat perapian. Setiap malam, terdengar suara langkah kaki di koridor, dan ketukan-ketukan kasar di pintu, padahal ketika diperiksa, tidak ada siapa-siapa. Tidak ada orang waras yang sudi tinggal di sana… Namun rumor-rumor seram Hill House malah menarik perhatian Dr. Montague, seorang akademisi yang ingin melakukan penelitian tentang aktifitas-aktifitas supernatural. Dia pun mengundang tiga orang asisten, Eleanor, Theodora, dan Luke, untuk tinggal di Hill House selama musim panas. Awalnya gangguan-gangguan makhluk halus yang mereka alami masih bisa ditolerir, tapi ketika Eleanor mulai mendengar suara-suara tanpa wujud yang membisikkan namanya, dan coretan cat merah di dinding yang memintanya pulang, keadaan mulai di luar kendali. Dr. Montague harus bertindak cepat jika tidak ingin jatuh korban nyawa. The Haunting of Hill House dianggap sebagai salah satu kisah horor terbaik abad ke-20. Novel ini telah dua kali diadaptasi menjadi film layar lebar, yakni tahun 1963 dan 1999. Versi tahun 1999 dibintangi oleh Liam Neeson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Owen Wilson, dan Lili Taylor.
