Archivist on a Bicycle: Jiří Fiedler

by Ruth Ellen Gruber

Archivist on a Bicycle is a tribute to Jiří Fiedler, a Czech Protestant, who for most of his life documented extinct Bohemian and Moravian Jews at great danger to himself. His day job was as a children’s book editor; his passion was mapping and archiving the sites of Jewish life in the Czech lands. From the 1970s through 2014, he was an invaluable source for scholars, genealogists, museum curators — anyone in the world interested in Czech Jews. Jiří rarely talked about what he called his “strange hobby,” but viewed it as a decent person’s response to Nazism and Communism. After the Velvet Revolution, he published Jewish Sights in Bohemia and Moravia and more than one hundred scholarly articles and reviews. His electronic encyclopedia of Jewish communities at the Jewish Museum...

A Brief History of the Peninsular War, 1808-1814

by Mark Simner

The Peninsular War, fought in Portugal, Spain and southern France between 1808 and 1814, was perhaps Britain’s most significant contribution to the fighting on land during the Napoleonic Wars. The conflict also saw Arthur Wellesley, who Napoleon would later deride as the ‘sepoy general’, make his name as one of Britain’s leading field commanders and become the Duke of Wellington. However, although often seen as largely a British struggle against the French, it should be remembered that both the Portuguese and Spanish played an equally important part in the eventual defeat of the emperor’s troops on the Iberian Peninsula.

A Brief History of the Peninsular War examines the complex origins of the conflict before considering the key phases of the war, including: Wellesl...

CIA Mission to an Internal HELL: A True Story of Intrigue

by Fairlie Sweet

This is the strange and yet factual story of an American soldier’s voluntary involvement in a mission to provide training to Montagnard Tribesmen in their villages somewhere in the mountainous terrain of Vietnam near the Laotian border. It has been more than fifty years since the mission took place, and with the secrecy recently lifted on the story it can now be told by one of the few persons involved.The story chronicles a virtually unknown part of the intrigue and courage associated with a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operation that simply did not or could not function as it was intended to do.Later research indicates that the operation probably involved persons by the hundreds, mostly young soldiers, and by early 1961 the death rate was approaching the point of raising suspicions...

Berkeley 1967-2017 Summer of Love (Visit Berkeley)

by Michael A. Estrada

There are moments in time when a word or thought has such power it changes history; a generation so involved in the moment it becomes unstoppable; a spiritual awakening so profound that its very conception shatters perceptions, halts the world and makes people from all nations take notice. And for Berkeley, this moment can be traced to the 1960s. The Summer of Love 1967, centered in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district, turned Berkeley into the epicenter of the counterculture movement. It was a tumultuous and often violent period marked by the origins of the Free Speech Movement beginning with the May 1960 House Un-American Activities Committee hearings at San Francisco City Hall, the emergence of the counterculture, the anti-war protests, the rise of the Women’s Movement, and endin...

Zionism: And the Question of Jewish Identity

by Bejarano Gutierrez, Juan Marcos

Zionism, in its simplest form, was the movement for the establishment of a Jewish state in the historic land of Israel. Today it remains the movement dedicated to the ongoing existence of a Jewish state. But Zionism was a challenge to many traditional perspectives on Jewish identity. Many events including the breakdown of rabbinic authority, the rise of Shabbati Zevi, the rise of Hasidim, and the Jewish Enlightenment contributed to the Zionist movement. Today, Israeli society has transformed Zionism. This short book surveys these critical phases of Jewish history and the part they played in the evolution of Jewish identity and self-definition....

White race people of the world are from 8% at the low, to 15% at the high of the worlds population, a population of around 90% people of color, yet liberals push the idea of people of color being victims of a white majority. In the curious case of Jessica Alba we draw on a number of TV appearances where her racial heritage is discussed, and how finding out she is predominantly white race European seemed to be a source of shame to her, and to the crowd. How and why has liberalism shaped this new anti-white narrative is what this book is about....

Understanding ECG: The Complete Guide to 12-Lead EKG Interpretation

by Alex Hall

Electrocardiography is the technique by which the electrical activities of the heart are studied. The spread of excitation through myocardium (the heart muscle) produces local electrical potential. This causes flow of small currents through the body which acts as a volume conductor. These small currents can be picked up from the surface of the body by using suitable electrodes and recorded in the form of electrocardiogram. This technique was discovered by Dutch physiologist, Einthoven Willem who is considered the father of ECG.Electrocardiograph is the instrument by which the electrical activities of the heart are recorded. Electrocardiogram is the record or the graphical registration of electrical activities of the heart, which occur prior to the onset of mechanical activities. It is the ...

They speak to the actions and sacrifices of the Founding Mothers and Fathers, based on the concepts of Liberty and Equality. In this one sentence, Lincoln demonstrates the inspiring wisdom and humanity of our Founders.Such wisdom and humanity appear to be lacking today...

VACATION TO ANCIENT EGYPT

by Anne Elizabeth Nixon

Ancient Egypt is seen through the eyes of the author as she and her son visit in 1980. On a camel ride out into the desert scattered with huge pyramids, they're invited into the tent of an old Egyptian man who serves them tea—and she wonders, have their cups ever been washed?
She tells of their travel by rail from Frankfurt, Germany, with a day's stopover in Rome, Italy, and along the coast of Greece to Athens; then by air they are off to Cairo.
After a few days in that ancient city they rent a car to begin a trip south through small towns along the Nile River to Luxor. The Karnak Temple has stood there for over a thousand years and its ruins are spectacular, as is the light show that reflects into a lake. One day they ride to the sweltering Valley of the Queens, and the n...

On Eastern Crossroads (Legends and Prophecies of Asia)

by Agni Yoga Society

In the traditions of all peoples there have been legends of pilgrims who set stones along their path in order to find their way back to the source. “On Eastern Crossroads,” may be regarded in this light, and we feel that each of these superb fragments so carefully gathered by her adds its sparks to the texture of truth, and reveals the steps of the most ancient traditions. In the variety of subjects, in the work, there is no feeling of a personal impress; it is like a wreath of flowers, gathered not with special concern for the specimens, but out of love for the beauty of the entire meadow.

A Photographic Guide to Tuscany: Pitigliano, Sovana, Sorano (Acal2015Productions Book 1)

by A. Cal

What links these three historic cities of Sovana, Sorano and Pitigliano, and the beautiful sceneries they are in, is the tufo or tuff rock - a rock that has always been the basic element of this southern part of Tuscany, revealing the volcanic origins of the land.

Over the centuries, the tuff rock has been used by prehistoric civilizations, the Etruscans, who used it for their necropolises and the “Vie Cave” that run all over the territory like a mysterious web, whose real purpose is debatable and mostly still unknown; and the peoples of the Middle Ages, who used it to build the castles and the roads we still see today.

From this rock are made the towns themselves , whit their overhanging houses, impressively perched on the cliffs they stand on, as if...

The Jesuit Reports from North America, 1610-1764

by John Swapceinski

A modern English translation of the Jesuit Relations, actual reports from North America by French Jesuits concerning their experiences with Native American tribes during the years 1610-1764. This book is 50% longer than the Bible, containing a tremendous amount of historical content spanning over 100 years.

Stories of Europeans' first encounters with native Americans, exploration, warfare, murder, disease, torture, and cannibalism; all these are contained in the massive document you hold in your hands, and it all occurred right here in North America during the 1600s.

In early 2014, I found online a set of documents called the "Jesuit Relations". These reports, called "Relations", as in "relating" events to someone, were written by an order of French Catholic prie...
