To Live and Die in Dixie was envisioned as a companion to I'll Take My Stand, in the hopes the two volumes may rest side-by-side (between readings) on an accessible shelf for as long as the job may take. The job being: the total vindication of the Southern and Confederate Cause. To Live and Die in Dixie was not penned by the Agrarians, but by some of today's best philosophers and historians. Herein, you will find twenty-seven essays which are designed to supply the weapons needed to take on the intellectually challenged and misinformed purveyors of modern historical imbecility. Intelligence is a weapon of self-defense. If you don't know your own history then you will be helpless and ignorant before someone who merely claims to know your history!

Eerie moonlight reflects palely off the bare dirt of a lonely sunken road beckoning to a terrified traveler, a soldier makes a pact with untold evil, a spirit of vengeance stalks a hapless traveler, a disturbed, disease-ridden man lies among those fallen in grim battle, half in this world, half in one of darkness, a desperate man takes refuge in a lonely house. Herein lie six tales of the storied South: paths through wood and fen, in times long ago or yesterday, where terror issues through quieted halls, the din of terrible battle, or from things that do not go bump in the night. Denizens through this land of twilight will discover what it means to live and die...in Dixie.
a guide to living wills
Author: Samuel L. Peluso
Publisher: Vista Pub
Category: Health & Fitness
The book takes the reader through the worlds of medical technology, life, death & the law. This is by no means another how-to-book that leaves the reader feeling empty & confused. Although the subject is demanding, the book is written in an upbeat & positive fashion. Living Wills are not about pulling the plug. They are about planning & control. They are about accepting the good which medical technology has to offer & rejecting the unwanted. Medical care & dying are eventualities which need to be discussed. Modern technology can extend life often beyond that which the patient may wish to tolerate. The first portion of the book helps the reader understand the broadening gap between medical technology & the ability to cure disease. Next, the book educates the reader about the medical & legal communities, providing definitions of certain life-sustaining treatment & legal terms. This is followed by a historic perspective of the legal principles & important cases dealing with the individual's right to choose or reject certain medical treatments. The final portion of the book focuses on certain high risk groups whose members may be more likely than others to require life-sustaining treatment.

Class, Power, Health and Health Care
Author: Robert Chernomas,Ian Hudson
Publisher: Pluto Press
Category: Health & Fitness
To Live and Die in America details how the United States has among the worst indicators of health in the industrialized world and at the same time spends significantly more on its health care system than any other industrial nation. Robert Chernomas and Ian Hudson explain this contradictory phenomenon as the product of the unique brand of capitalism that has developed in the US. It is this particular form of capitalism that created both the social and economic conditions that largely influence health outcomes and the inefficient, unpopular and inaccessible health care system that is incapable of dealing with them. The authors argue that improving health in America requires a change in the conditions in which people live and work as well as a restructured health care system.

For 250 years, the Vikings sailed the oceans of the world. Their exploits are legendary; they reached far into Russia, sailed the Mediterranean from one end to the other, and crossed the Atlantic to Iceland, Greenland and North America. Few cities, even those far from the coastline, were safe from them. But it was not all raiding; they were also settlers and explorers. Leiv Ericsson had paved the way to North America; others followed. In 1030, Einar Sigvaldsson and his crew departed Norway, their plan to win gold riches in the land far off to the west.
At one time Darrell Davis aka Dee Bastard had been a feared general of the TLB Crip set, but seven years in prison have dulled his thirst for violence. He wanted nothing more than to go home to his girlfriend and live a normal life, but a series of Gang Related murders and a ghost from his past change the dynamics of that drastically.
Native Northerners Who Fought for the Confederacy
Author: David Zimring
Publisher: Univ. of Tennessee Press
According to the 1860 census, nearly 350,000 native northerners resided in a southern state by the time of the Civil War. Although northern in birth and upbringing, many of these men and women identified with their adopted section once they moved south. In this innovative study, David Ross Zimring examines what motivated these Americans to change sections, support (or not) the Confederate cause, and, in many cases, rise to considerable influence in their new homeland. By analyzing the lives of northern emigrants in the South, Zimring deepens our understanding of the nature of sectional identity as well as the strength of Confederate nationalism. Focusing on a representative sample of emigrants, Zimring identifies two subgroups: “adoptive southerners,” individuals born and raised in a state above the Mason-Dixon line but who but did not necessarily join the Confederacy after they moved south, and “Northern Confederates,” emigrants who sided with the Confederacy during the Civil War. After analyzing statistical data on states of origin, age, education, decade of migration, and, most importantly, the reasons why these individuals embarked for the South in the first place, Zimring goes on to explore the prewar lives of adoptive southerners, the adaptations they made with regard to slavery, and the factors that influenced their allegiances during the secession crisis. He also analyzes their contributions to the Confederate military and home front, the emergence of their Confederate identities and nationalism, their experiences as prisoners of war in the North, and the reactions they elicited from native southerners. In tracing these journeys from native northerner to Confederate veteran, this book reveals not only the complex transformations of adoptive southerners but also the flexibility of sectional and national identity before the war and the loss of that flexibility in its aftermath. To Live and Die in Dixie is a thought-provoking work that provides a novel perspective on the revolutionary changes the Civil War unleashed on American society. David Ross Zimring is an adjunct professor of history at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and Montgomery College. He has published in West Virginia History and the Journal of Southern History.
