The Twisted Saga of Custer's Unsung Scouts
By Bruce Brown

An unknown number of George A. Custer's Crow, Arikara and Sioux Indian scouts died at the Battle of the Little Bighorn fighting for America, which has never bothered to identify all of Custer's dead scouts, let alone honor them. 'The Twisted Saga of Custer's Unsung Scouts' is the first step toward righting this wrong.

The History of the Corporation, Volume 1
by Bruce Brown

God, demon servant, master, parasite or provider -- what exactly is the corporation? In his pioneering study of the most powerful form of social organization ever invented by mankind, The History of the Corporation, Volume 1, Bruce Brown traces the development of the corporate idea from the oldest surviving corporation -- the Benedictine Order of the Catholic Church, founded circa 529 AD -- through the Dark Ages, when corporations first ruled human beings. This is the seminal history of the incorporal, conceptional creatures we call corporations from the fall of Rome through the First Dominion of the Corporation.

"Great Book. Fascinating..." -- Jack Weatherford, author of The History of Money
