The fight to save the 1930s-era building that most recently housed the Engineer’s Bookstore on Marietta Street exposes weaknesses in Atlanta’s preservation power.

Russell Library for Political Research and Studies at the University of Georgia, explores how Georgia’s tourism industry developed and transformed the state from a stop along the route to Florida to a place worth visiting in itself.

Clinton must have been the first nominee of her party to give her acceptance speech clad entirely in white. Her speech was clear, direct, and never on the defensive.
They say that football is a contact sport. Those who’ve actually played the game disagree. Basketball, they say, is a contact sport…football is a collision sport. Football is a tough and strategic game and the difference between winning and losing on any given Sunday often comes down to a thin, undefinable characteristic. There are no […]
