Since its founding in 1842, The Citadel has provided generations of leaders to the state and nation. From its original purpose of providing an education to young men of South Carolina who would perform military duties for the state, it has evolved into an institution of national stature, highly regarded for both its academic reputation and its disciplined environment. Graduates of The Citadel have fought in every United States war since the Mexican War in 1846. Cadets have also achieved prominence in other fields, such as serving in leadership roles in state and national government, education, the professions, and business. With the help of over 200 black-and-white photographs, this work explores the development of The Citadel over the past 160 years, and included are sketches of its visionary founders, faculty members, and leaders. Descriptive vignettes highlight the success of the alumni and give insight into the experiences of the most important element of The Citadel: the South Carolina Corps of Cadets.
A History of Armenians in Rhode Island
Author: Varoujan Karentz
They came from everywhere, mostly as immigrant orphans who lived through the modern world's first ghastly genocide, convinced they were the very few left who must save their heritage. Mitchnapert tells how Armenian churches, schools and organizations became established in Rhode Island and about the most difficult political crisis that split the community for fifty years, caused by the assassination of an Archbishop in another state. Mitchnapert follows the Armenians as they assimilate into the American mainstream, providing the reader a lucid and rare historical examination of what Armenians in Rhode Island accomplished and how they gained such notoriety in their Diaspora. The "street stories" and historical essays of past events provide much factual evidence and familiarity to those who lived through the more recent periods. The early business scene and descriptions of neighborhoods where Armenians lived are recounted. Complex issues of how they are surviving the ethnic "melting pot" syndrome, both present and in the future are examined as second and third generation Armenian Americans become the community's new decision makers. Included is a "Who's Who" cross-section of Armenians who live and work in the state and those who moved elsewhere but still retain their Rhode Island roots.

An influential part in laying the foundation of the NHS, The Citadel is a moving story of tragedy, triumph and redemption. When newly qualified doctor Andrew Manson takes up his first post in a Welsh mining community, the young Scot brings with him a bagful of idealism and enthusiasm. Both are soon strained to the limit as Andrew discovers the reality of performing operations on a kitchen table and washing in a scullery, of unspeakable sanitation, of common infantile cholera and enteritis. There are no X-rays, no ambulances – nothing to combat the disease and poverty. It isn’t long before Andrew’s outspokenness and determination make him enemies – as well as winning him friends, and the love of an idealistic schoolteacher. Riches that he risks losing when the fashionable, greedy world of London medicine claims him, with its private clinics, wealthy, spoilt patients and huge rewards. A classic saga by A J Cronin, one of the great masters of the genre, author of The Stars Look Down and Hatter's Castle.

New York City, the grand metropolis of the United States, had been devastated from the radiation wars over global oil rights. Only a few of the largest cities had endured the holocaust, many in name only, as the survivors migrated to widely separated tracts of land left un-radiated by the nuclear warheads unleashed by oil-hungry countries. The once-dominate United States had been reduced to independent city-states. As recognized power was redistributed around the world, elected governments began to disintegrate into dictatorial regimes. York City (as it was now called) was under the control of the latest man in power, Mayor Kourei Posin. Rights and privileges were being systematically stripped away. Choices of education and employment were no longer options; those opportunities were now mandated and enforced by a government as necessity dictated. David Kendal of Kendal Enterprises had a plan but it was risky. Although the people wanted reform and freedom, they no longer had the voice or the power to achieve it. The Mayor’s security troops had already imprisoned some of David’s closest friends and confidants while others had met untimely deaths. Yet, not everyone was opposed to the growing tyranny of the ruling class. Even within David’s own inner circle of family and advisors the promise of wealth and power was the harbinger of betrayal. With his family in hiding, David and his few remaining allies needed to find a place to work their plan. They would build a city within a city, a guardian city – the Citadel.

'For as long as I can remember, I have heard stories about four gates, the four gates of the citadel.' 'You mean the Gate of Merlin, the Gate of Brahman, the Gate of Darwin, and the Gate of Abraham?' Leumas stopped dead in his tracks and stared at Tal. 'You've heard of them?' he asked. Tal turned back and faced his companion. 'I've heard of them, and I've seen them, Leumas.' 'I knew it! I knew they were real! My father always said they were just legend!' Leumas is going on his Journey of Promise, a one-month rite of passage in which he must make the most valuable purchase possible with the small sum entrusted to him by his parents.

Murderous cults and enigmatic soothsayers want Leumas amongst their ranks—or dead. Leumas will receive help along the way, but will it be enough?

Intimate Life in a Changing Arab World
Author: Shereen El Feki
**Kirkus Best Books of the Year (2013)** If you really want to know a people, start by looking inside their bedrooms. As political change sweeps the streets and squares, the parliaments and presidential palaces of the Arab world, Shereen El Feki has been looking at an upheaval a little closer to home—in the sexual lives of men and women in Egypt and across the region. The result is an informative, insightful, and engaging account of a highly sensitive and still largely secret aspect of Arab society. Sex is entwined in religion, tradition, politics, economics, and culture, so it is the perfect lens through which to examine the complex social landscape of the Arab world. From pregnant virgins to desperate housewives, from fearless activists to religious firebrands, from sex work to same-sex relations, Sex and the Citadel takes a fresh look at the sexual history of the region and brings new voices to the debate over its future. This is no peep show or academic treatise but a highly personal and often humorous account of one woman’s journey to better understand Arab society at its most intimate and, in the process, to better understand her own origins. Rich with five years of groundbreaking research, Sex and the Citadel gives us a unique and timely understanding of everyday lives in a part of the world that is changing before our eyes. From the Hardcover edition.

..Let me assure you, the reader, that I am not some slick author who will astound you with a myriad of words and descriptions beyond your understanding, but rather this book is written by an ordinary working man who has spent most of his life away from God, but having been saved by the Grace of God, and having accepted The Lord Jesus Christ into my life, I am now compelled by His Holy Spirit to battle for Him in this area which Satan has made his own. Because this book is written under the influence of the Holy Spirit, not only in content but also in direction, I urge you to read it under the influence of that self same Spirit. The aim of this book is to bring knowledge to Christians and non-Christians alike.

At the start of the Cold War, the greatest threat to America wasn't the Russians and the looming Communist threat. Rather, it was an elite organization bent on world domination, a group so powerful only nuclear weapons could safeguard against them. The CIA knew what these men were capable of, and in a last ditch attempt to protect America against them, they built two high–security arsenals deep within the earth––one declassified in the Nevada desert, and one heavily under wraps in Antarctica. For over 50 years, no one spoke of The Citadel, the fortress deep under the ice in Antarctica that held the most powerful weapon known to man––until the Organization returned, hellbent on destruction. Captain Jim Vaughn is a government agent known for performing missions no one else wants. So when an old colleague approaches him with an assignment, he can't refuse––even if the mission has been set in motion by a dead man's letter, found in Antarctica and dated 1949. The Citadel has been cracked, and the only man who can safeguard it is Vaughn. Nothing short of the fate of mankind rests on his shoulders.
