In How Things Fell Apart – A Short History of South Africa – 1488 to Present Day, John H. Glover reveals the source of Apartheid and the racial struggles of the indigenous South Africans. Africans, their struggles with the European for political justice and freedom, and their denial of equality in the South Africa Parliamentary system and its society. John used letters written by European South African Politicians to show the fights of the indigenous South Africans and what they were up against, such as Percy A. Molteno, James Rose-Innes, J. X. Merriman, and Sir Alfred Milner, British Governor of Cape Colony, who wrote to Rev. James Green on December 12, 1901: ” . . . As for the indigenous South Africans, one thing which appears to me quite evident is that a distinction must be drawn in the case of the natives between personal and political rights. A political equality of white and black is impossible . . . in any South African Parliament the interests of the blacks should be specially represented . . . this could be best done by white men, not elected but nominated for that particular purpose . . . As regards to personal rights, I hold that those of the natives should be just as clearly defined, and just as sacred as those of the white men. I do not, however, think that they need always be, or ought always to be the same. . . . How Things Fell Apart – A Short History of South Africa also reveals the indigenous South African politicians such as Walter Benson Rubusana and John Tengo Jabavu, and their struggles to combat political injustice and apartheid.$4.99
I find this difficult if not impossible. If you so desire we can eliminate the biography part, however I understand that most readers require knowledge of the author – believe me I tried to keep it short and to the point (most reports that I received found this a very interesting part of my book. Then of course there are those who disagree with my including the Bill of Rights and the Constitution it is absolutely necessary for these documents to be included in my book the readers can simply pass over them and when needed, they can study them at their leisure (they are there for this reason) this book covers a vast array of modern history, briefly mentioning the Constitution and how it was formed and what it means today. Without this instrument to guide and protect us we will fail to exist. Therefore it is of the utmost importance that we stress to all Americans – the old and the young alike, all ages must be fully aware not just of the first are the second amendment but the entire document as a nation we have grown complacent, take things for granted this has to be reversed we must be fully aware and make damn sure that all of our political bodies regardless of their affiliation live by an rule by the Constitution. The oath of office as sworn too with one’s hand on the Bible, I swear to Preserve, ProTech and Defend the Constitution of the United States of America. This oath is meaningless as it is administered today we must pass a law that particularly the president of the United States varies in any respect from performing that duty the sanctioned in the most severe manner possible.$2.99–$27.99
The Black American: A Documentary History by Glen P. Watkins, author. The purpose of this work is to present an overall view of the black race in American culture from slavery until 1992. The long voyage across the Atlantic involved weeks of nightmarish misery, suffering, and death. Slaves were kept in close quarters of ships with little space between the decks. They were manacled except when taken to the top deck for exercise while their quarters were being cleaned with vinegar. This was a journey of horror marked by death from dysentery, small pox, and the yaws. Some slaves committed suicide by the strange African method of swallowing the tongue. Destined to become an integral part of American history, the presence of African Americans markedly shaped the life and history of the 13 colonies. By many measures, the relative position of African Americans has scarcely improved. Undoubtedly, many have made impressive gain, but after more than 40 years, the majority has not sufficiently improved their relative standing. African Americans and other ethnic groups have acquired limited progress in social mobility. This exciting history is a part of all American regardless of ethnicity or social standing and should be known by all Americans.

Examines the contested expansion of the Western United States through the perspective of two important historical figures. It is the story of a time when open land, resources, and wealth west of the Mississippi captured the imagination of everyone in nineteenth century America. The United States government sent expeditions to capture as much land as possible, and thousands of easterners set off in stagecoaches to find their fortunes. Angry American Natives and vicious conflict greeted the trespassers as they continued to invade more territory.
The book follows the lives of two brave leaders from very different cultures, born just two years apart: George Armstrong Custer of the United States Seventh Cavalry; and Crazy Horse of the Native American Lakota tribe. Custer delighted in youthful pranks as a child and as a young man at West Point Military Academy. Ambitious, courageous, and lucky, Custer successfully advanced his military career in spite of a few misdemeanors. Thousands of miles away, Crazy Horse hunted buffalo, captured horses, and learned the strategies of warfare by studying animals and following Native traditions. Both Custer and Crazy Horse became passionate leaders. This gripping story culminates when Crazy Horse and thousands of Native American warriors collide with Custer’s Seventh Cavalry at the Battle of the Little Big Horn to fight for their land and everything they held dear.$2.99–$18.99
