Naval Occurrences of the War of 1812 by William James

Book Description

William James wrote his "Naval Occurrences of the War of 1812" to counter the bombastic, patriotic and false version of the war put forward by American authors. To free the war from 'American dross', James used his legal mind to pick through a wealth of evidence and came to the conclusion that 'no American ship of war has, after all, captured a British ship of the same force'. Many of his more controversial and vociferous passages were trimmed and toned down for his later, 6-volume epic work on the history of the Royal Navy. Only by reading this work can readers appreciate the full force of his argument.

Pragmatism by William James Pragmatism, Paperback (February 2015)

The word pragmatism is used everywhere today, from business to sports to politics. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this title offers a corrective to modern uses of the word, since the voice that speaks in its pages embodies precisely the opposite values from the pejorative semes the word has acquired.
