Launched in 1803 by President Thomas Jefferson, the Lewis and Clark Expedition was one of history’s most ambitious and successful explorations. Leading a permanent party of 33 on a 28-month journey of 8,500 miles, the intrepid Meriwether Lewis and his co-commander William Clark ascended the Missouri River into present-day Montana, crossed the Rocky Mountains, descended the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean, and returned safely with a wealth of new information about the wilderness interior of North America. Virtually every aspect of their momentous journey is covered in Explorations into the World of Lewis and Clark, a three-volume anthology of 194 articles (with 102 maps and illustrations) published between 1974 and 1999 in We Proceeded On, the quarterly journal of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation. Contributors include a host of professional and avocational Lewis and Clark scholars, including John Logan Allen, Stephen E. Ambrose, Irving W. Anderson, Eldon G. Chuinard, Paul Russell Cutright, Dayton Duncan, James J. Holmberg, Arlen J. Large, and James P. Ronda. Subject categories, by volume: I: Before Lewis and Clark • Expedition Preparations • Expedition Personnel. II: People, Places, Things, and Events • Scientific Aspects of the Expedition. III: Journals, Letters, and Related Early Writings Immediately Following the Expedition • Lewis and Clark Trail Sites • Commemorations, Interpretations, and Depositories • Some Prominent Lewis and Clark Scholars.

The importance of oil for national military-industrial complexes appeared more clearly than ever in the Cold War. This volume argues that the confidential acquisition of geoscientific knowledge was paramount for states, not only to provide for their own energy needs, but also to buttress national economic and geostrategic interests and protect energy security. By investigating the postwar rebuilding and expansion of French and Italian oil industries from the second half of the 1940s to the early 1960s, this book shows how successive administrations in those countries devised strategies of oil exploration and transport, aiming at achieving a higher degree of energy autonomy and setting up powerful oil agencies that could implement those strategies. However, both within and outside their national territories, these two European countries had to confront the new Cold War balances and the interests of the two superpowers.

A century ago Americans entered and fought 'a war to end all wars.' In Living the World War: A Weekly Exploration of the American Experience in World War I we use the Congressional Record and the New York Times to see how an American citizen of that era would have experienced the World War without knowing what would come next. In addition to the War, Americans living during the weeks of October 1, 1916 to December 31, 1917 also debated women's suffrage, race relations, Prohibition, the rights of organized labor, reconciliation of North and South, and coal and fuel shortages. That experience of war, and the emerging national issues, profoundly shape America in the 21st century.

Return to the Moon

Former NASA Astronaut Harrison Schmitt advocates a private, investor-based approach to returning humans to the Moon—to extract Helium 3 for energy production, to use the Moon as a platform for science and manufacturing, and to establish permanent human colonies there in a kind of stepping stone community on the way to deeper space. With governments playing a supporting role—just as they have in the development of modern commercial aeronautics and agricultural production—Schmitt believes that a fundamentally private enterprise is the only type of organization capable of sustaining such an effort and, eventually, even making it pay off.
