The Politics of Hallowed Ground by Mario Gonzalez,Elizabeth Cook-Lynn Book Summary:
This book is the powerful story of the ongoing struggle of indigenous Americans in the twentieth century United States and of its shift in focus from traditional battlefield and massacre sites to federal courtrooms and the halls of Congress. The Politics of Hallowed Ground includes excerpts from the diary kept by Mario Gonzalez, the attorney for the Sioux Nation in its struggle for recognition of the Wounded Knee Massacre site as a national monument. Gonzalez's personal record of the struggle is coupled with commentary by Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, a Native American writer who places the work in its historical context. Together, the two voices will draw the reader into far more than the continuing struggle of the Sioux people to achieve justice. The book covers Sioux history from before the Wounded Knee tragedy to modern times, through the Sioux Nation's long and often rancorous dialogue with the U.S. government over control of South Dakota's Black Hills, traditional Sioux lands recognized by treaty in 1877 and never forfeited or sold. After reading a 13-year-old survivor's narrative of what happened at Wounded Knee and the list of the dead and wounded, readers will find it difficult not to share the Sioux perspective. "Provocative and compelling with its raw incisive written commentary by a man who is trained as a lawyer but still views his world through tribal lenses." -- Leonard R. Bruguier, Director of the Institute of American Indian Studies, University of South Dakota "By far the most moving, most compelling book I have read about the Sioux and their ongoing struggle to come to grips with history. Gonzalez and Cook-Lynn let us see the gut-wrenching realities that people who work to make a difference face." - Robert Allen Warrior, author of Tribal Secrets: Recovering American Indian Intellectual Traditions
On Hallowed Ground by John Patrick Diggins Book Summary:
In this provocative book, John Patrick Diggins, hailed by Alan Ryan in the New York Times as "one of the liveliest and most interesting of contemporary intellectual historians," offers a sweeping reassessment of American history, emphasizing the foundational role of Abraham Lincoln's moral and political theory. Distressed by the divisive impact of modern identity politics, Diggins argues persuasively that in the central tenets of Lincoln's political faith--the redeeming value of labor and the rights to property and self-determination--we find the purest expression of the values that have united Americans and guided American history. With his characteristic breadth, Diggins ranges from James Madison to W. E. B. Du Bois to the movie Good Will Hunting in his examination of the often ambivalent ways in which Americans have imagined themselves and their nation. Convinced that contemporary historians have done America a grave disservice by emphasizing political divisions along the lines of class, race, and gender, Diggins points out that throughout American history there has been more that unites the American people than divides them.
On Hallowed Ground by Wanda Burse Book Summary:

On Hallowed Ground by Cheryl A. Smith Book Summary:
On Hallowed Ground: The Dunbar Complex in Harlem is a short history of a place situated in the Mecca of Black America, Harlem. The story provides historical, social and economic contexts as a backdrop for themes of family, cooperative economics and community building. The Dunbar Complex, apartments and a bank, opened during the height of the Harlem Renaissance.The Complex can be considered a "small first," tenant-owned garden apartments for Black people in the late 1920's. It is also a story of an ordinary family that illustrates the "other side of the Harlem Renaissance." Some members were pioneers in tiny events in Black History, "small firsts." The lived experiences of families in a particular place can provide a unique perspective of a city during a moment in time. Documenting this history can be a defense against the increasing onslaught of gentrification on Hallowed Grounds, particularly in Black America.
Hallowed Ground by Michael Taylor Book Summary:
If you search the scripture, you will find that there is a place where every man can meet his maker and that place is on Hallowed Ground. It was no accident that the believers written of in the Bible had a much closer relationship with God than many of us, if not all of us, do today. God's word repeatedly emphasizes that it was their obedience that was the key, for God will not allow the rebellious to remain in His presence. Isaiah 59: 1-2 Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Since it would be impossible for anyone to live a life of continual obedience and true faith towards God without having experienced the new birth, this work was created to explain the highly misunderstood process of true conversion, the marks of the new birth, and the fundamentals of the Christian Faith.
Treading on Hallowed Ground by C. Christine Fair,Sumit Ganguly Book Summary:
After America's Iraq adventure devolved into a debacle, a chorus of commentators and analysts noted that the U.S. military had no plan to fight a counterinsurgency campaign. Given the failure of conventional tactics, America in the last two years has redoubled its efforts to develop a new strategy to fight the Iraqi insurgency, and has gone so far to place our leading counterinsurgency expert, General David Petraeus, in charge of the Iraq theater. In sum, there seems to be a growing consensus that for better or worse, counterinsurgency will be a core tactic in future American military campaigns. Iraq, of course, presents special problems to the U.S. because of the intensity of religious belief and sectarianism. How do we fight against an insurgency that so often strategically positions itself on 'hallowed ground'--mosques and shrines? Yet Iraq is not unique. As the contributors to Treading on Hallowed Ground show, counterinsurgency efforts on religiously contentious terrain is a widespread phenomenon in recent times, ranging from North Africa to Central and Southeast Asia. Here, C. Christine Fair and Sumit Ganguly have assembled an impressive group of experts to explore the most important counterinsurgency efforts in sacred spaces in our era: churches in Israel, mosques and shrines in Iraq, the Sikh Golden Temple in India, mosques and temples in Kashmir, the Krue Se Mosque in Thailand, and the Grand Mosque in Saudi Arabia. Taken together, the essays comprise the first comprehensive account of this increasingly pivotal component of contemporary war.
On Hallowed Ground by Bill McWilliams Book Summary:
“Brilliantly reveals the extraordinary courage of those who fought the final, bitter, bloody, costly days of the Korean War” (Gen. Jack I. Gregory, USAF Ret.). By the summer of 1953, the Korean War had long since reached a stalemate. As peace negotiations dragged on, units of the US 7th Infantry Division rebuilt the defenses of Hill 255, one of numerous outposts in front of the Main Line of Resistance extending across the peninsula. Better known by its nickname, Pork Chop Hill, the outpost had twice been the scene of some of the fiercest fighting of the spring. Now, the soldiers tasked with its rebuilding and defense hoped they would not be the last men to die in what had already become known as “the Forgotten War.” On the night of July 6th, under the cover of a heavy monsoon rainstorm, forces of the Chinese 23rd Army attacked. For five hellish days, the opposing forces engaged in devastating artillery assaults, brutal hand-to-hand fighting, and round-the-clock attacks and counterattacks. Less than three weeks after the smoke on Pork Chop Hill cleared, the Korean Armistice Agreement was signed. On Hallowed Ground is the riveting story of this epic battle. Drawing on previously classified documents, interviews, and letters from survivors, author Bill McWilliams details the strategy and tactics behind the conflict and pays stirring tribute to the heroic soldiers and medics who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to hold “the Chop.”

Hallowed Ground by Stephen Burgard Book Summary:
Makes a lively and convincing case that a pragmatic American way in religion is arising in response to challenges unmet by any other public or private entity. -- Jack Miles, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of God: A Biography Why can't we practice religion in a way that doesn't divide community and country? The free exercise of religion is central to the First Amendment, but increasing activism of religious conservatives has raised new concerns about separation of church and state. Hallowed Ground compellingly argues that the solution lies in making better use of an emerging moral middle, a flourishing group of Americans who do share the concern of religious conservatives about a crisis of values, but who are put off by what they perceive as intolerance and prejudice. Mr. Stephen Burgard, a journalist with an interest in the cultural impact of religious values, goes beyond the predictable collision of ideologues. He sets the provocative debate in the context of mainstream America's search for a new and more meaningful way of expressing religious values in a multiethnic society. This is a refreshingly unbiased book that will engage all readers interested in religion, and professionals in humanistic psychology, political science, sociology, ethics, and clinical psychology.
