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.

ACCESSIBLE WORLD PRESENTS A JOURNEY THROUGH HISTORY REVIEWING PRESIDENTIAL COURAGE Hosted on Tuesday, March 06, 2012

Our book for March will be a bestseller from 2007 by Michael Beschlos. Like JFK’s “Profiles in Courage” it provides examples where nine Presidents ignored the consequences, political or otherwise, and made highly unpopular decision because it was best for the United States. How these sometimes flawed leaders got into the dilemma or handled the mess varied, but what they did was what they believed to be in the best interest of the country.
