<h3>What incidents and environments wrought <strong>the</strong> <strong>most hated man</strong> <strong>in history</strong>? How does a child become a young man who evolved into a self-proclaimed messiah? Why did this <strong>one </strong>man become a psychotic who was responsible for the deaths of more than 50 million people?<br /><br /><sub>This book follows the first, formative years of Adolf Hitler’s life. Presented as a personal journal, this is a fact-supported re-telling of a desperate existence, as viewed by Hitler, and tracks the points of pain that forged his beliefs. From a childhood of abuse and cheating death to an agonizing unrequited love to torturous years as a beggar in Vienna to finally finding his destiny. Enflamed by delusions, Hitler embraced the powers he believed guided his life.<br /><br />This is a story of dire happenstances that broke a mind and spirit, created beliefs that twisted innocence, ultimately morphing into a malicious brew that changed the world <strong>forever</strong>.</sub><br /><br />This is the <em>one</em> story that's never been told. </h3><h2><br /></h2><h2><br /></h2><p><br /></p><br /><br />Volume II - The Struggle will be released in Spring 2018.

Each day, their paths overlapped for a mere eight minutes. But one afternoon on the bus ride home from school, a single reckless act left Sasha severely burned, and Richard charged with two hate crimes and facing life imprisonment. </p><p><i>The 57 Bus </i>is Dashka Slater's true account of the case that garnered international attention and thrust both teenagers into the spotlight.</p>

<DIV><P>During World War II a community called Manzanar was hastily created in the high mountain desert country of California, east of the Sierras. Its purpose was to house thousands of Japanese American internees. One of the first families to arrive was the Wakatsukis, who were ordered to leave their fishing business in Long Beach and take with them only the belongings they could carry. For Jeanne Wakatsuki, a seven-year-old child, Manzanar became a way of life in which she struggled and adapted, observed and grew. For her father it was essentially the end of his life.<BR /><BR /> At age thirty-seven, Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston recalls life at Manzanar through the eyes of the child she was. She tells of her fear, confusion, and bewilderment as well as the dignity and great resourcefulness of people in oppressive and demeaning circumstances. Written with her husband, Jeanne delivers a powerful first-person account that reveals her search for the meaning of Manzanar.<BR /><BR /><I>Farewell to Manzanar</I> has become a staple of curriculum in schools and on campuses across the country. Last year the <I>San Francisco Chronicle</I> named it one of the twentieth century’s 100 best nonfiction books from west of the Rockies.<BR /><BR /> First published in 1973, this new edition of the classic memoir of a devastating Japanese American experience includes an inspiring afterword by the authors. </P></DIV>
