Escape. Oh how I long to flee into the woods. To a peaceful sanctuary unspoiled
by man. Where money has no place, And corruption does not exist. I would build
a cabin. That I may live off the land, Returning to simpler things, That most of us ...

The Poetic Rantings of a Mad Man presents a collection of the early work of poet John Yergin. The poems included convey a wide range of emotions and cover a period of great turmoil and heartbreak in his life. Because poetry is his chosen outlet for expressing his emotions and heartbreak, these verses represent a true expression of his inner self. Whether he is searching for love, coping with the heartbreak of love lost, or just trying to determine his rightful place in the universe, his inner turmoil is etched upon each poem. Some of his poems explore the passion of new love or explain the misery of a failed crush. This poetry seeks to leave a lasting impression of the journey taken to find enduring love. Hopes and Dreams A brilliant sunset, Melting into twilight, Is breathtaking. But it still does not, Come close to the beauty. I see when I look Into your eyes, A midnight sky, Scattered with thousands Of silver stars, Holds Countless hopes and dreams, But it can not hold all the dreams, I want to share with you. A million tomorrows Would not hold enough time for me to tell you, How much I love you. How Thankful I am, To have you at my side.

As thoroughly examined as the Civil War and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth have been, virtually no attention has been paid to the life of the Union cavalryman who killed Booth, an odd character named Boston Corbett. The killing of Booth made Corbett an instant celebrity who became the object of fascination and of derision. Corbett was an English immigrant, a hatter by trade, who was likely poisoned by mercury. A devout Christian, he castrated himself so that his sexual urges would not distract him from serving God, which he did as a street evangelist and preacher. He was one of the first volunteers to join the US Army in the first days of the Civil War, a path that would in time land him in the notorious Andersonville prison camp. Eventually released in a prisoner exchange, he would end up in the squadron that cornered Booth in Virginia. The Madman and the Assassin is the first full-length biography of Boston Corbett, a man who was something of a prototypical modern American, thrust into the spotlight during a national news event. His story also encompasses tragedy—his wife died when he was young, and he struggled with poverty and his own mental health—as it weaves through some of the biggest events in nineteenth century America. Scott Martelle is a professional journalist and the author of The Admiral and the Ambassador, and Detroit: A Biography, and is an editorial writer for the Los Angeles Times.

What is the meaning of life? The question has been asked by the brightest philosophical minds for centuries. Still to this day answers vary greatly depending on the worldview. Solomon, the wisest king in Israel's history, set all his energies to search for the ultimate meaning of life under the sun. His conclusions may shock and surprise you--vanity, chasing after the wind, absurdity, vanishing smoke. Are these the musings of a genius or of a mad man? If you are looking for a candy-coated appraisal of life then go ahead and put this book down. However, if you are looking for a no-frills, brutally honest, ragged-edged assessment of reality, then you have discovered an indispensable volume. In Journal of a Mad Man, pastor and author Derrick McCarson will carefully guide readers verse by verse through Solomon's meditations recorded in the Old Testament book of wisdom--Ecclesiastes. Not only will readers attempt to plumb the depths of some of mankind's most vexing questions, but they will also discover Solomon's secrets for wise living in a warped world.

AMC’s episodic drama Mad Men has become a cultural phenomenon, detailing America’s preoccupation with commercialism and image in the Camelot of 1960s Kennedy-era America, while self-consciously exploring current preoccupations. The 12 critical essays in this collection offer a broad, interdisciplinary approach to this highly relevant television show, examining Mad Men as a cultural barometer for contemporary concerns with consumerism, capitalism and sexism. Topics include New Historicist parallels between the 1960s and the present day, psychoanalytical approaches to the show, the self as commodity, and the “Age of Camelot” as an “Age of Anxiety,” among others. A detailed cast list and episode guide are included. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Mad Men, using the historical backdrop of the many events that came to demarcate the 1960s, has presented a beautifully-styled rendering of this tumultuous decade, while teasing out a number of themes that resonate throughout the show and connect to the contemporary discourses that dominate today's political landscape. The chapters of this book analyze the most important dimensions explored on the show, including issues around gender, race, prejudice, the family, generational change, the social movements of the 1960s, our understanding of America's place in the world, and the idea of work in the post-war period. Mad Men and Politics provides the reader with an understanding not only of the topics and issues that can be easily grasped while watching, but also contemplates our historical perspective of the 1960s as we consider it through the telescope of our current condition.
