Product Description
The Hill and Wang Critical Issues Series: concise, affordable works on pivotal topics in American history, society, and politics.

This account of Congress's Indian Removal Act of 1830 focuses on the plight of the Indians of the Southeast--Cherokees, Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws, and Seminoles--who were forced to leave their ancestral lands and relocate to what is now the state of Oklahoma. Revealing Andrew Jackson's central role in the government's policies, Wallace examines the racist attitudes toward Native Americans that led to their removal and, ultimately, their tragic fate.

3-0 out of 5 stars the long bitter read
I purchased this book for a US history class I am taking for which I had to write an essay highlighting the theme of the book.
The book itself is fairly well written, being very informative and well structured, and although it is a quick read (you'll be surprised how fast the pages go flying by), it is not a page turner. I, along with my fellow colleagues, found myself having to re-read sections of the book because the text didn't grab my interest very well.
Wallace however, does do an excellent job of providing a good history and description of Indian removal. He also does a good job in re-analyzing history and debunking many myths believed at the time.
Overall, this is not a "leisure read" but any history major or anyone wanting to inform themselves on Indian removal need look no further.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Long Bitter Read, Wallace's work lacks evidence for his argument
In this brief work, The Long, Bitter Trail by Anthony F.C. Wallace provides a new perspective to American Indian policy in the 19th century.Wallace is a well-known historian and a professor of history and anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania.In this piece, Wallace argues against the claims of many historians who believe the Indians were either a threat or needed to be civilized.The focus of this book, as the author states, is "looking at both the land-hungry white Americans and their Native American victims" (13).Moreover, Wallace argues that white self-interest determined the fate of the Indians. The Long, Bitter Trail is a brief work that is well organized, but fails to be objective.

Wallace divides his book into an introduction, four chapters, and an "aftermath (epilogue)."This book effectively organizes its chapters in chronological order with each chapter setting up the next.In his introduction, Wallace provides background about Andrew Jackson's life and politics with Indians.He argues that Andrew Jackson like many other politicians had his own financial interest in some of the land acquired from Native Americans.

The first chapter examines a brief history of the Indians and their contacts with Europeans and American settlers.This chapter is effectively titled, "The Changing Worlds of the Native Americans."The world of the Native Americans in the southeast was changed for the worse as settlers spread diseases such as small pox.The northeast Indian relations started out peacefully because Native Indians and European settlers were interested in exchanging goods with one another, but interests changed when a series of wars between France and Britain occurred in colonial America, which placed the Indians in the middle of the conflict.These wars were fought over land and became the new interest of Europeans living in colonial America.The United States continued these wars over land with the Native Americans and eventually defeated the northeastern Indians.He concludes in this chapter that after the United States defeated the northeastern Indians, the United States turned its interest to the "more civilized" southeastern Indians, which leads to the next chapter that dealt with these tribes (28-29).

The second chapter deals with Federal policy and the Indians.This chapter focuses on the reasons and financial interests of politicians who would determine the fate of the southeastern Indians.Wallace claims, "And now, when the policy of civilizing and assimilating the Indians was accused of being a failure, if not a mistake to begin with, the idea of colonizing the Indians west of the Mississippi gained favor" (39).Wallace believes that moving the Indians west of the Mississippi allowed the United States to acquire more territory by American settlers moving westward.

The third and fourth chapter focuses on how the Indians were relocated off their land.The third chapter is properly titled "Removal Act" as the author examines the different policies that dealt with removing the Indians from their lands.In particular, this chapter focuses on Andrew Jackson's policies to relocate the Cherokees, Creaks, Chickasaws, and Choctaws west of the Mississippi.The author also discusses how Politicians and missionaries had different interests of the Indians.The eastern politicians wanted the Indians land while the missionaries wanted to "Christianized" the Indians.Chapter four focuses on the Trail of Tears, which relocated the Cherokees west of the Mississippi.The author discussed how the Native Americans were forced off their lands by the Federal government through the use of the military.

The aftermath chapter focuses on the legacy of the Indian Removal Act and its consequences.The author believes this had a dramatic effect on the lives of Native Americans.Indians continually became victims of the Federal government's policy.The Federal government's allotment system had negative effects on the Native Americans, which included poverty, reduced health, and poor education (119).The author concludes, "Two hundred years of national indecision about how the United States should deal with its Native Americans have not come to an end" (120). The Long, Bitter Trail does an effective job organizing its content through chronological order, which makes this book easily read and understood.
Wallace is not objective in this book because he is portrays whites as always being the aggressors with the Indians always being the victims.There are other books that are more objective because they demonstrate that atrocities were committed on both sides.For example, The First Frontier by R.V. Coleman argues whites and Indians constantly broke treaties with one another.Wallace, on the other hand, did not deny any wrong doing of the Indians.

Wallace should have expanded on some of his controversial arguments.For instance, Wallace argues, "It was not the `savagery' of the Indians that land-hungry whites dreaded; it was their `civilization'" (11).He fails to follow up on this claim and instead he writes about the consequences of the trans-Mississippi removal of the Southern Indians after this bold statement.The author also wrote that Jackson believed that "The Indians were savage, cruel, bloodthirsty, cannibalistic butchers of innocent white women and children, and should be driven into submission or extinction" (54).Yet Wallace neglects to explain this bold statement or state the source.After this, Wallace went on to write, "But Jackson's relationships with individual Indians could be warm, even intimate" (54).Wallace did not attempt to explain why this differed from Jackson's general belief of Indians.Wallace's failure to explain his controversial statements weakens his argument.

Other historians such as Robert Remini would disagree with how Wallace portrayed Jackson.Andrew Jackson and His Indian Wars by Robert Remini portrays Andrew Jackson as being friendlier and cooperative to Indians who wanted to preserve their culture.Remini also argues that Jackson enforced treaties between whites and the Indians with equal treatment to those who broke them.Wallace should have addressed such viewpoints from Robert Remini along with the other historians who he has criticized.Wallace's controversial statements express a lack of objectivity and leave these ideas open for debate because he failed to be convincing.

Overall, The Long, Bitter Trail is well organized and well written, but this book has several weaknesses.Wallace's arguments are not convincing enough because he does not provide enough evidence nor does he explain all of his statements.Although the author tries to cover an abundance of material in a short amount of pages, the author clearly states his arguments.This book would provide a good introduction and counter points for high school students who are being introduced to this topic, but for an expert, this book provides a lack of new information except criticism on other works on Indian policy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best first step to learn about Indians.
I cannot say enough about the value of this book to me. I just finished it today and wish it had been MY first book in the subject. My topic of interest is 1832 and the settlement of West Tennessee. I have had scant real knowledge of the era or the place, but long harbored a yearning to know the actual facts as well as sentiment, national and local, of the early days of my home in Alabama and my adult home in West Tennessee. I have skirted the topic of the "Old Southwest," land grants, what effect statehood in Tennessee (1796)--the sixteenth state--had on anything, how were roads built and mail transferred. Now I'm getting closer to the subject and am very glad to know that time better...and be justly grateful.

I kinda sorta knew some of this story of settlement, so selected the topic of West Tennessee settlement for a creative writing project. And was it a winning subject!

Wallace is an accomplished writer with scores of books. It seems he has dedicated himself to the Indian topic; he is also an anthropologist. His short book portrays the essential characteristics of the colonial presidents and the Indians, then brings us up through Jackson's two administrations and the Indian Removal Act of Congress, 1830. The final chapter dips into all the other eastern tribal history and includes briefly 20th century changes with the Indians.

Other fine books of research have more recently been brought forward, specifically my other favorite, Waselkov, Gregory A., "A Conquering Spirit: Fort Mims and the Redstick War of 1813-1814." But Wallace's book, had I read it first, would have plugged me into the era from the start of my research and oriented my knowledge of history, inadequate though it has been. His mastery of style allowed me to read fluently and fast, and touched my heart, too, even to Old Hickory, whom we see by his actions as a compassionate man (sometimes) who had some really tough assignments, to say the least.

I look forward to reading other of Mr. Wallace's volumes. I also wholeheartedly recommend the book to good juvenile readers.

5-0 out of 5 stars A perceptive introduction to Jacksonian Indian policy
Few events in American history are as shameful as the removal of the Indians from the American Southeast in the 1830s.Despite prior treaties and remarkable success in assimilating American culture, the tribes in the region - Cherokees, Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws, and Seminoles - were driven west by the voracious demand of Americans for land.In this book, Anthony Wallace provides a survey of the development of federal policy towards the tribes in the early 19th century and its impact upon them.

For much of the early 19th century, Indian policy was mired in a conflict between people advocating Indian "reform" (who saw Indians as capable of being taught the ways of white civilization) and proponents of a policy of removing Indians from land slated for settlement.The election of Andrew Jackson to the presidency in 1828 decided this conflict.A westerner with a reputation as an Indian fighter, Jackson sided with removal advocates, endorsing a bill that made removal to lands west of the Mississippi River federal policy.

Though supporters of removal argued that the policy was necessary given the unredeemable savagery of the Indians, as Wallace points out, the success of the tribes in the region undermined this justification.More dependent on agriculture than other tribes, the Indians of the Southeast had an easier time adapting to American cultural standards than their counterparts in other regions, with some tribal members even owning slaves.This didn't save them from removal however, and the Cherokees discovered just how hollow the promise of assimilation was when Jackson ignored a Supreme Court ruling that rejected Georgia's claim of state sovereignty over the Indians, thus depriving the tribes of the only hope of protection from expulsion.The result was the "Trail of Tears," the forced migration to Indian Territory that resulted in the deaths of thousands of Indians.

Wallace provides a summary of Jackson's Indian policy that is both balanced and readable.His coverage of white attitudes, which runs across the spectrum from the hostility of settlers to the sympathy of white missionaries, is refreshingly nuanced.His coverage of the Indians is equally good, and he pulls no punches in demonstrating the extent to which the tribal leadership was complicit in removal.Readers seeking to learn more about the "Trail of Tears" and the policies that brought it about would do well to start with this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, excellent, excellent
Simply the best work available on Indian Removal, in my opinion.It is highly regarded among academic historians.Wallace did a tremendous job of writing clearly and making the plight of the Indians understandable to anyone.It is short, it is lucid, it is interesting reading.Plus, it is balanced.This is not a work that treats Indians as childlike, passive victims, but it does convey the injustice and unnecessary hardships to which they were subjected.It also does not portray the government and non-Indian Americans simply as aggressors.It's an important work for understanding what happened to the tribes.It won't take a lot of your time, so do yourself a favor and read it. ...

Product Description

The first comprehensive life of English novelist, critic, and composer Anthony Burgess, author of A Clockwork Orange. Admired worldwide for his literary novels, including the masterpiece Earthly Powers, Anthony Burgess also achieved notoriety for the ultra-violent shocker, A Clockwork Orange. In this new biography, Andrew Bisswell charts Burgess' life from his solitary and motherless childhood to his triumphant emergence as a writer, critic, and composer. He also casts new light on Burgess' complicated relationship with director Stanley Kubrick, looks with sensitivity at his tempestuous first marriage, and explores his erotic entanglements with Graham Greene and William Burroughs. Drawing on extensive interviews, unpublished writings, letters, and diaries, The Real Life of Anthony Burgess reveals both the writer and the man as never before.

5-0 out of 5 stars First Read "Little Wilson" & "You've Had Your Time"...
...then read this engaging biography, and try and sort the wheat of truth from the chaff of exaggerations, confabulations, untruths and half-truths. It's tricky, but Biswell does a creditable job of ensuring we see the real difference between the John Wilson of lower-class Manchester and 'Anthony Burgess', the literary creation who paraded as critic and commentator.

The wide scope of the Burgess canon has long been ignored in favor of the the cheap Kubrick-visualized thrills of "A Clockwork Orange". To understand where the inspiration came from, and how it may be seen by a disinterested third-party, this biography is invaluable. But, as others have said, I was left wondering what became of Paolo Andrea (aka "Andrew Burgess Wilson") and why a slim final chapter covered the last 15 years of the author's life with relatively little detail.

5-0 out of 5 stars On the mark ,Mr Biswell
Biswell does a what alot of writers of biographies don't do;he offers a very balanced view of the life of Anthony Burgess. Now of course Anthony Burgess himself sort of "bears all" in his two volume autobiogrhy(ies?) . What Biswell does is show what Burgess may have tried to conceal.He doesn't do a hatchet job,he doesn't put a knife into the memory of Burgess.But he also does show where Burgess did sort of "fudge" the facts a bit. Not that Burgess tried to make himself into a saint, I find that Burgess revealed quite of bit of his own personal foibles and follies. If one is a writer one should live more of an interesting life than most people (or at least that is my opinion) . Biswell gives the reader a good view into the life of this writer(who is best known for the book CLOCKWORK ORANGE) and sort of "fleshes" the man out more. Most readers,who only connect the name of Burgess to the book CLOCKWORK ORANGEdoesn't know is that this author was a very multifaceted man. He was a composer or music,a writer,an teacher, a linguist.
Of course I really respect the works of Anthony Burgess so I am biased. But I would say if someone wants to know something about this author they should get a copy of Biswell's book . For with this book a person would get a very through introduction to Burgess's works,to Burgess the person and also a decent book on 20th century history (the expanse of time in which Burgess himself had lived through anyway). Not often one can get a "three for" .

4-0 out of 5 stars Unravelling fact from fiction
Anthony Burgess was a major English novelist of C20 and, after Graham Greene, the leading Catholic novelist of the time writing in English. Lapsed though he was, Burgess's Catholic worldview - his obsession with Good vs. Evil, Original Sin (the only Catholic doctrine for which there is irrefutable empirical evidence) and Free Will - is the dominant theme of his best novels: the 'Enderby' Quartet,'Earthly Powers' and the controversial, 'A Clockwork Orange' - the book by which he is now best known and remembered even by those who don't read, thanks to Stanley Kubrick's movie version. He wrote over 30 novels, hundreds of essays and reviews, and two volumes of (less than entirely truthful) autobiography - one commentator has described the latter two books ('Little Wilson and Big God' and 'You've Had Your Time') as among the best fiction Burgess wrote. Andrew Biswell does a good job distentangling the fact from fiction - Burgess was a compulsive self-publicist and in the many interviews he gave created a fascinating character, who bore a passing resemblance to the real John Burgess Wilson. Biswell casts doubt on the miraculous recovery from a brain tumour, and points out the improbability of Burgess travelling to France as a teenager to get a copy of 'Ulysses' (a story which Wikipedia adopts, unquestioningly, as part of the Burgess myth). He also produces a comprehensive survey of Burgess's literary output and demonstrates how little he invented and how much of his own life he poured into his characters. So much so, that a early novel ('The Worm and Ring') had to be withdrawn by the publisher following a libel action. However, although this book is a vast improvement on Lewis's nasty biography, and provides much useful imformation it is not the definitive life. Two topics are poorly covered. Firstly, Burgess's music. His first wife condemned his "amateurish" efforts as a composer. Is his music (rarely performed) any good? Biswell does not discuss Burgess's own account of how he wrote a symphony, 'This Man and Music'. Secondly, while Burgess's first marriage to the alcoholic Lynne is dissected in painful detail (down to listing the various public houses from which she was banned and the men she slept with), we are told very little about his second marriage, to the saintly(?) Liana (now herslf recently deceased) and, as a previous reviewer has noted, nothing is said about the suicide of his son Paolo. Liana is described in one account quoted by Biswell as "vague" and, perhaps, as noted below, vagueness was the price the author had to pay for her cooperation. There is a vast Burgess archive to be mined (scattered, it appears, between Manchester, Angers and Austin,TX), unpublished love letters and poetry to be extracted from private sources, to say nothing of the neglected musical scores. Until the day when a first class literary biographer teams up with a musicologist to give us a five star life and works of Anthony Burgess, this will have to do.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Burgess Reading
This biography was rivetting for me from start to finish. After suffering Roger Lewis'spathetic bookwritten in a state ofrage at Burgess's mere existence, this new Bio was very much welcomed. If you want a good balanced & detailed account of AB's life & work look no further.

4-0 out of 5 stars BURGESSIAN RHAPSODY
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Returned from holiday, where this book proved to be good company for a good few days, a dismissive and ill-informed review in today's Guardian (London, 3 December, 2005) prompts me to spring to its defence. Because, though this new biography undoubtedly has its faults, there is no way in the world it is `a dull book', as Guardian critic, Anthony Thwaite, would have us believe. Personally, I found this book to be a distinct improvement on Roger Lewis' recent biography, which to my mind was overloaded with far too many chunks of Burgess's own extant prose, seemingly as space fillers. (Roger Lewis's only saving grace, it seems to me, was in suggesting that the Burgess persona is itself the author's most convincing fictional creation.)

On the plus side, this most recent biography is written by a Burgess aficionado (which Roger Lewis most certainly was not), so it is to the author's credit that he chooses to reiterate this truism about Burgess that was first postulated by his biographical predecessor. (See page 306, where Deborah Regan, Burgess's literary agent since 1987 says: 'The distinction between life and fantasy was completely blurred.') In addition to this the author goes on to provide us with a multitude of fresh insights into Burgess's life story via contributions from former colleagues, friends, acquaintances, and writers - Robert Graves' footnoted reminiscence of a remembered Burgessian critique being an absolute gem. And last but not least, the author is generous enough to accord to L. W. Dever, Xaverian's long-serving history master of hallowed memory, the distinction of having introduced Burgess to the work of James Joyce, as opposed to his serving ignominiously and untruthfully (see LITTLE WILSON AND BIG GOD) as a boozing partner pure and simple.

On the minus side, the author is occasionally remiss with regard to Mancunian geography. For example, it is the right bank of the River Irk, not Manchester General Cemetery that is `the western border of [Burgess's birthplace] Harpurhey'. And he is mistaken too in referring to THE (i.e. colloquially there should be no definite article preceding) Lower Park Road, the location of Burgess's secondary school, Xaverian College. In fairness, though, this is not so severe a fault as Anthony Thwaite's imagining Xaverian to be a `Jesuit' school. (Has Anthony Thwaite perhaps not actually read this book - or, indeed, Roger Lewis's book, to say nothing of Burgess's two volumes of autobiography?)

Even so (p.224), it is surely demonstrably unsound for Dr Biswell to say that, amongst the things that so appalled Burgess upon his return to the UK from Malaysia were `sexual permissiveness' and `a falling away of religious belief'. (Burgess can't have it both ways - or can he?)

Imprecision is occasionally irritating too in THE REAL LIFE. On the one hand, the actual plot number of Burgess's mother's grave in Manchester General Cemetery is gratuitously volunteered, whereas the exact location of Burgess's own resting-place in Monaco is not pinpointed in any way.

Was imprecision such as this perhaps the price of access to Burgess's widow, Liana? Is this the reason too why the untimely death of Burgess's son, Paolo Andrea, is nowhere described as a suicide in this book?

This last omission is particularly interesting in view of Burgess's own speculation (page 7) that: `One becomes less able to give affection or take affection - because one never had this early filial experience'. So, did Burgess perhaps blame himself for insensitivity in his relationship with Paolo Andrea? And, if so, is a further volume of Burgessian biography perhaps needed on this account?

But all things considered with regard to THE REAL LIFE OF ANTHONY BURGESS, I would say unhesitatingly, by way of conclusion - paraphrasing Burgess's dedication of THE CLOCKWORK TESTAMENT (to Burt Lancaster, incidentally):

`. . . deserves to be read, deserves to be read.'

"This book fills a very important gap in the mindset of the bond structurer and the investor. Often, the two disciplines approach their tasks ignorant of the perspectives of the other side. But successful structuring requires providing the best value to investors in order to compete, and investors who don’t fully understand structuring will not remain investors for long. Highly recommended!"

1-0 out of 5 stars Deceptive and outdated
The title of Davidson's work certainly doesn't lack in aspiration, however, it proves the point that appearances are deceptive! It's disappointing in comprehensive coverage, bar maybe it's narrow scope on MBS. Worse though, statistics and contents are largely outdated. Even though I found a few rare pages worthy of reading, I still can't recommend this book to anyone. There are many superior alternatives in the market.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible for quant
This book is terrible for the quant who wants to learn some technical stuff about MBS and ABS (for example, prepayment model or default model ....). I know the authors are doing business to sell their prepayment model. But I don't think that's the good reason that this book contains nothing more than MBS/ABS overview. If you want market/product overview, maybe this book is the answer.

Product Description

It looks particularly at the nature and quality of his political intelligence and at his grasp of processes of manipulation, personal interaction, media/press exploitation and the integration of the private and the public. It also assesses Trollope's continuing popularity as a writer - outselling many of his more critically 'esteemed' contemporaries in the late 20th century. ... Read more

Score, and few will remember; miss, and no one will forget. On Penalties is an exploration of the growing significance of the penalty shot in soccer - from its arrival in the game in 1890 to its spectacular, scene-stealing climax at the end of the 20th century.
