  "Cooke was once described as a 20th
   century equivalent to French historian
   Alexis de Tocqueville -- an outsider
   whose perspective gave him unique
   insight into the national character,
   institutions and phenomena that
   Americans take for granted."


Yesterday, March 30th, 2004, British writer/broadcaster Alastair Cooke
died.  Author of the BBC's weekly "Letter from America" since 1946, Cooke
served as an observor and ambassador from his adopted country to the rest
of the world for many decades.  In commemoration of his work, we are
offering JHRB News List subscribers a 20% discount on books listed on our
AMERICANA pages from now through Sunday.  We may announce the sale on the
book-related mailing lists this weekend, but you, as JHRB News List
subscribers, are getting a few extra days and first notification.
