Book 2: Stories of Women of the Industrial Revolution Most of the time, when you sit down with a book of history, you are going to be reading about men. Men who win wars and men who lose wars. Men who create empires, and men who destroy empires. Men who author great works and design great machines that change the course of the world. The thing is, half the people in the world are women. What about them? Women have also done a lot of creating, and destroying, authoring, and designing, right alongside the men. This book is about eight of those women who were born and lived in the time between the beginning of the Industrial Revolution until the present day: Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797), whose short life rode the leading edge of a wave of change, and who can rightfully be called the world's first feminist. Ada Lovelace (1815-1852), a mathematician whose father was poet/adventurer George Gordon Lord Byron, who called her approach to formal thinking "poetical science," and who is credited with writing the world's first computer program. Harriet Tubman (ca. 1822-1913), the fifth of nine children born to plantation slaves in Maryland, who risked her life to gain freedom for herself and her family, who fought and spied for the Union during the American Civil War, and whose image will soon grace the American $20 bill. Margaret Knight (1838-1914), who had to drop out of school when she was twelve years old, and never went back, and yet became one of the most successful inventors of her age. Nancy Wake (1912-2011), who once said that when men have to go off to war, "I don't see why we woman should just wave our men a proud goodbye and then knit them balaclavas." So during World War Two she learned to shoot and spy, and fight hand to hand, and then jumped out of an airplane into The Mirabal Sisters: Patria (1924-1960), Minerva (1926-1960) and Maria Teresa (1935-1960). Some stories don't get to have a happy ending. This is one of them.

In 1961, a black veteran named James Meredith applied for admission to the University of Mississippi — and launched a legal revolt against white supremacy in the most segregated state in America. Meredith’s challenge ultimately triggered what Time magazine called “the gravest conflict between federal and state authority since the Civil War,” a crisis that on September 30, 1962, exploded into a chaotic battle between thousands of white civilians and a small corps of federal marshals. To crush the insurrection, President John F. Kennedy ordered a lightning invasion of Mississippi by over 20,000 U.S. combat infantry, paratroopers, military police, and National Guard troops. Based on years of intensive research, including over 500 interviews, JFK’s White House tapes, and 9,000 pages of FBI files, An American Insurrection is a minute-by-minute account of the crisis. William Doyle offers intimate portraits of the key players, from James Meredith to the segregationist Mississippi Governor Ross Barnett, to President John F. Kennedy and the federal marshals and soldiers who risked their lives to uphold the Constitution. The defeat of the segregationist uprising in Oxford was a turning point in the civil rights struggle, and An American Insurrection brings this largely forgotten event to life in all its drama, stunning detail, and historical importance.

For centuries the world has been misled about the original source of the Arts and Sciences; for centuries Socrates, Plato and Aristotle have been falsely idolized as models of intellectual greatness; and for centuries the African continent has been called the Dark Continent, because Europe coveted the honor of transmitting to the world, the Arts and Sciences. It is indeed surprising how, for centuries, the Greeks have been praised by the Western World for intellectual accomplishments which belong without a doubt to the Egyptians or the peoples of North Africa.
