Anchored at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville is the cultural center of South Carolina's Piedmont. Today, residents and tourists often find themselves immersed among the charming shops and quaint cafes that line the avenues in the historic Main Street district. A revitalized area today, Greenville's Main Street was the commercial center of the town during the life of William Coxe, a Greenville photographer who acquired many early images and who brilliantly extended the collection with his own photographs. Remembering Greenville: Photographs from the Coxe Collection explores Greenville during the first half of the 20th century. Stunning black-and-white images enlighten readers about the "old" Greenville that virtually disappeared as the small city was transformed into a large metropolitan area. These images, taken from the 1900s to the 1960s, depict Furman University and Greenville Women's College, both then located in Greenville's downtown; Camp Wetherill, Greenville's Spanish-American War training camp; and such personalities as an older, but still legendary, "Shoeless" Joe Jackson.

Trevor Noah kam 1984 im Township Soweto als Sohn einer Xhosa und eines Schweizers zur Welt. Zu einer Zeit, da das südafrikanische Apartheidsregime „gemischtrassige“ Beziehungen weiterhin unter Strafe stellte. Als Kind, das es nicht geben durfte, erlebte er Armut und systematischen Rassismus, aber auch die mutige Auflehnung seiner "farbenblinden" Eltern, die einfallsreich versuchten, Trennungen zwischen Ethnien und Geschlechtern zu überwinden. Heute ist er ein international gefeierter Comedian, der die legendäre "The Daily Show" in den USA leitet und weltweit – ob Sydney, Dubai, Toronto, San Francisco oder Berlin – in ausverkauften Sälen auftritt. In "Farbenblind" erzählt Trevor Noah ebenso feinsinnig wie komisch in achtzehn Geschichten von seinem Aufwachsen in Südafrika, das den ganzen Aberwitz der Apartheid bündelt: warum ihn seine Mutter aus einem fahrenden Minibus warf, um Gottes Willen zu erfüllen, welche Musik er für einen tanzenden Hitler aufzulegen pflegte, um sein erstes Geld zu verdienen, und wie ihn eine Überwachungskamera, die nicht einmal zwischen Schwarz und Weiß unterscheiden konnte, vor dem Gefängnis bewahrte.

"America the Great" is the result of five years' research and writing that began in late 2009 in response to the contemporary American "tea party" movement and criticisms that the movement's participants did not know the history and theory of the original 1773 Boston Tea Party from which the modern movement takes its name. The extensive library of original books, newspapers, magazines, etc., now available (primarily via "google books") to anyone over the Internet, means that researchers have available to them the university libraries of the world. The availability of accurate original documents made it possible to expand the original scope of research into other historical events, and into other countries (primarily Great Britain), and enabled the work to develop into a more general examination of theories of human dignity, and of the differing conception of government that arises depending on the conception of human dignity that is characteristic of the people that is creating that government.
