I think if he had lived through the horrors of the 20th Century, he would have paid more attention to universal Human Rights and would not blindly follow a cause because it seemed to follow the grand idea that states doing whatever they wanted amounted to real democracy. Accepting the certainty that American history was re-written by the winning Northern historians, it is clear that the South did not really have a defendable position. As an experienced military man, Davis knew from the start that the military odds were stacked against the Confederacy. An excellent "go-to" book on the rise and fall of the Confederacy. I found it hard, however, to understand the first pass and had to read over and over to understand sometimes.
I think of the United States in multiple wars and committed to security throughout the world. What we learn ultimately is that no great power can have it all, forever. The book is highly informative, and goes into a lot of detail explaining why some empires rise and some fall. I really enjoyed the author's take on why Europe prospered in the way it did, and how Britain's economy helped it shoulder the burdens placed on it by Napoleonic Wars. I would say that the best way to enjoy the book would be to have a little bit of background in history first, because it does a fantastic job of answering all the questions you might have after exploring a bit of history yourself.
it, But once your picture becomes tainted, Its what they call, The rise and fall Now I know, I made mistakes, Think I dont care, But you dont realise what this means to me, So let me have, Just one more chance, Im not the man I used to be, Used to beeeeeeeeeee Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over, And. it seems as though the writings on the wall, Superstar you finally made it, But once your picture becomes tainted, Its what they call, The rise and fall.
The album title comes from the Brecht/Weill opera Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny (The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny), first performed in 1930 but banned by the Nazis three years later. The London production at Sadler’s Wells Opera in January 1963 was conducted by Colin Davis.
