The Cannons Roar: Fort Sumter and the Start of the Civil War—An Oral History

Readers interested in Civil War and American history should find something new in this title to enjoy.

Law & Disorder: The Chaotic Birth of the NYPD

Highly recommended for public libraries with a strong true crime collection and all academic libraries. Readers can appreciate the challenges faced by the NYPD through this well-researched time line of how the department was formed.

If you enjoyed Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, however, this will be a fun read. Scholars of early American history will find this book worthwhile.
