Journey Through History ARGO interview for Hosted on Tuesday, June 04, 2013

On June 4, 2013 we will be reviewing "Argo: how the CIA and Hollywood pulled off the most audacious rescue in history" This eight-hour book is more than a gripping true-adventure story, it is an important element in the history of United States Foreign Affairs in the Near East.
It also provides us with what we hope is a realistic picture of the legendary undercover CIA agent.

Accessible World presents A Journey through History reviewing Batavia's Graveyard by Mike Dash Hosted on Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Our book for April is Batavia's Graveyard by Mike Dash. NLS lists it as an "Adventure rather than "History" and the plot reads like a suspense novel. For example, in Hollywood style, the rescue ship arrives literally just in time to save the shipwreck survivors from an attack by the mutineers. However, "Absolutely nothing in this book is invented. It is closely based on contemporary sources …" according to Mike Dash in the Preface.
