From the dawn of time, women have been perceived as the caretakers, as nurturers and as mothers. They are seen as delicate creatures, to be protected and taken care of. Many a time, this argument has served more than one chauvinist who sought to keep the woman bound to his wishes, unable to do anything beyond the quintessential cooking and cleaning and rearing of the children.

Yet, given the chance, women have proven themselves time and time again, going above and beyond the call of duty. For all that they are perceived to be the...

Discover the truth of a profound legend that has endured from the very dawn of civilization, a captivating revelation of the existence of a mysterious world hidden deep in the wilderness of the Great Himalayan Range.Scholars relate that the first mention of this fabled ‘Light in the Himalayas’ appears in the scriptures of the pre-Tibetan Zhang Zhung culture which arose some 4000 years ago on the remote Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

GLOBAL CATASTROPHIC RISKS: THREATS TO OUR CIVILIZATION

by C. CARL PEGELS

Certain catastrophic events only occur every few hundred years, and everyone assumes that the world will not be visited with another world wide catastrophic event because none has occurred during our and our parents' life times. Even our government and our representatives in that government never bring up the necessity of possibly building a defense against a world-wide disaster.This book addresses the issue of the necessity for building such a defensive structure. The first and major item is to build up national food reserves distributed all over the country so that they will be accessible when a catastrophic event occurs. Note that I state when it will occur, because it can and will occur anytime, perhaps tomorrow or 100 years from tomorrow. The important point to keep in mind is the fac...

While compiling the extensive series, “Free Books for a Quick Download” it became evident that very few free books were available on Amazon on the Second World War. Yet the war was one of the most important and pivotal period in human history, a period which needs to be studied so as to appreciate the sacrifices of the countless many who gave their lives or that suffered greatly as a result of that calamitous time.Given the gigantic need to never forget, I decided to explore Amazon for books about WWII that were relevant--and affordable. The result is this low-cost collection of over 150 books about various aspects of the war. The cost of each of each the books listed in this work is about $1.00 or less. Of course Amazon reserves the right to modify the price of its books at any tim...

A History of Male Psychological Disorders in Britain, 1945-1980 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Alison Haggett

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Statistically, women appear to suffer more frequently from depressive and anxiety disorders, featuring more regularly in primary care figures for consultations, diagnoses and prescriptions for psychotropic medication. This has been consistently so throughout the post-war period with current figures suggesting that women are approximately twice more likely to suffer from affective disorders than men. However, this book suggests that the statistical landscape reveals only part of the story. Currently, 75 per cent of suicides are among men, and this trend can also be traced back historically to data that suggests this has been the case since the beginning of the twentieth-century. This book suggests that male psychological illness was in fact no ...

A History of Self-Harm in Britain: A Genealogy of Cutting and Overdosing (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Chris Millard

This book is open access under a CC BY license and is the first account of self-harming behaviour in its proper historical and political context. The rise of self-cutting and overdosing in the 20th century is linked to the sweeping changes in mental and physical health, and wider political context. The welfare state, social work, Second World War, closure of the asylums, even the legalization of suicide, are all implicated in the prominence of self harm in Britain. The rise of 'overdosing as a cry for help' is linked to the integration of mental and physical healthcare, the NHS, and the change in the law on suicide and attempted suicide. The shift from overdosing to self-cutting as the most prominent 'self-damaging' behaviour is also explained, linked to changes in hospital organization an...

Eiderdown

Over the centuries eiderdown has been coveted by the Vikings, Russian tsars and medieval tax collectors who accepted it as revenue. The plumage of a fat sea duck, eiderdown – treasured for its extraordinary lightness and insulation – now joins cocaine as an instrument of globalisation and commodity of the super-rich.In this revelatory essay, Edward Posnett travels to the Westfjords region of Iceland to explore the fragile relationship between Icelanders and the duck. Eiderdown harvesting began with the arrival of Norse settlers in the 9th century, and it is now stuffed into pillows, duvets and clothing which sell for thousands of pounds in Japan, China, Germany and Russia. What might at first appear an idyllic pastime becomes a story of compromise and exploitation. Posnett’s finely ...

The Dangerous Art of Alchemy

by Karen Maitland

A free e-short from Karen Maitland, author of Company of Liars, which unveils the dark historical context to her new novel, The Raven's Head. The black object inside the flask was the head of a raven. Its beak was opened wide as if it cried out a warning, and from its mouth a long forked scarlet tongue quivered in the flickering candle flame, like a viper poised to strike. Alchemy. The word conjures up images of magic, mystery and dark dungeons full of bubbling potions, with shadowy figures poring over ancient manuscripts in pursuit of the secret formula that will allow them to turn base metal into pure gold. And, for centuries, this image of alchemy was not far from the truth... Take science and politics. Mix with desire and desperation. Leave to intensify. And you shall have the legendar...

After doing so, Ch. 1 discusses the origins of the Byzantine Empire as the eastern half of the Roman Empire.
