Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. She takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. Clinton describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward.
An Illini Place
This project is an interpretive and thematic look at the Urbana-Champaign campus from 1867 through 2015 via its planning, architecture and landscaping. It includes chapters that apply nine themes across time; a chapter on campus icons, most still standing; and a chapter of buildings, arenas and other spaces made possible by private gift money. Primary sources include correspondence, official reports, dedication programs and the like housed in the University Archives; transcripts of oral histories done outside the University; interviews by the authors; and other common sources. It is rich in archival research but is written for a lay audience that might wonder: Why does the University of Illinois campus at Urbana-Champaign look as it does today? A web companion to the book, hosted by the University of Illinois Press, includes short stories about ten planners, architects and presidents who were key to the campus's physical development, and inventories of campus plans and buildings, current and long-gone.

Recruited by the U.S. Army and Navy from small towns and elite colleges, more than ten thousand women served as codebreakers during World War II. While their brothers and boyfriends took up arms, these women moved to Washington and learned the meticulous work of code-breaking. Their efforts shortened the war, saved countless lives, and gave them access to careers previously denied to them.
Ron Chernow provides a portrait of one of our most complicated generals and presidents, Ulysses S. Grant. Ulysses S. Grant's life has typically been misunderstood. All too often he is caricatured as a chronic loser and inept businessman, fond of drinking to excess; or as the triumphant but brutal Union general of the Civil War; or as a credulous and hapless president whose tenure came to symbolize the worst excesses of the Gilded Age. These stereotypes don't come close to capturing adequately his spirit and the sheer magnitude of his monumental accomplishments.
