The White House and the Kremlin: The History and Legacy of the World’s Most Famous Official Residences

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes contemporary accounts*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsAmong all the world’s capitals, few contain a governmental seat of power as imposing or impressive as the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia. While the name itself is often used as a shorthand to refer to the Russian government, and many people associate it with Red Square, the Kremlin is actually a fortress inside the heart of Moscow, replete with everything from ramparts and towers to decadent churches. The history of Russia is vast and winding, so it should come as no surprise that the same can be said for the Kremlin. Construction on the site was taking place by the 12th century, and by the 14th century it was imposing enough to withstand sieges. Ivan ...

Mount Athos and Meteora: The History of the Greek Landmarks that Became Orthodox Christian Monasteries

Mount Athos is the easternmost finger of the Halkidiki peninsula – a mountainous sliver of land that stretches about 37.3 miles long and 4.3-7.5 miles wide, with a surface area of about 150 square miles. Towering over...

A Short History of Spain

by Mary Platt Parmele

The history of Spain dates back to the Early Middle Ages. In 1516, Habsburg Spain unified a number of disparate predecessor kingdoms; its modern form of a constitutional monarchy was introduced in 1813, and the current democratic constitution dates to 1978. After the completion of the Reconquista, the kingdoms of Spain were united under Habsburg rule in 1516. At the same time, the Spanish Empire began to expand to the New World across the ocean, marking the beginning of the Golden Age of Spain, during which, from the early 1500s to the 1650s, Habsburg Spain was among the most powerful states in Europe.Written in an engaging style, Mary Parmele’s concise study A Short History of Spain introduces readers to the key themes that have shaped modern Spain....

A London War Child Crosses the Ocean: (My Very Long Youth, Book 1)

by Lawrence Bohme

Book I of Lawrence's youthful adventures, 1942-56. Born mid-war in a southern suburb of London, to a German refugee from Berlin and his young English stenographer, the four-year old immigrates with his family to Western Canada, where he spends his next ten years among the forests of West Vancouuver.

AN OVERVIEW… Lawrence Bohme's whimsically told but scrupulously truthful story of his first 41 years - "not a word of it is invented except some of the names", he swears - is entitled "My Very Long Youth" because "due to forces beyond my control I only started growing up, or calming down, after that age". His erratic wanderings throughout the Western World in the four decades following the war in which Lawrence was born have been enough "without wasting a single word" to fill 15 ...

Embassy Days: Moscow under Stalin Bangkok without tourists 1949-1952

by Jean Redwood

Embassy life Moscow and Bangkok 1949-52.

Nothing could ever be quite the same as working in post-war Moscow and pre-tourist Bangkok in the early 1950s – a period now epitomised as ‘The Forgotten Decade’.
After the hardship of the 1930s, the Second World War and the austerity of post-war Britain, it was exciting to be young in the more prosperous though socially still rather starchy 1950s. When Harold Macmillan told us at the 1959 election that ‘You’ve never had it so good’, we agreed.

Jean Floyd was 22 when the Foreign Office sent her for secretarial duties to the British Embassy in Moscow in 1949, shortly after the beginning of the Cold War. It was a time when the outbreak of World War III was regarded as a serious possibility, especially after...

Scots in Canada

by Jenni Calder

In Canada there are nearly as many descendants of Scots as there are people living in Scotland; almost 5 million Canadians ticked the Scottish origin box in the most recent Canadian Census. Many Scottish families have friends or relatives in Canada. Who left Scotland? Why did they leave? What did they do when they got there? What was their impact on the developing nation? Thousands of Scots were forced from their homeland, while others chose to leave, seeking a better life. As individuals, families and communities, they braved the wild Atlantic Ocean, many crossing in cramped under-rationed ships, unprepared for the fierce Canadian winter. And yet Scots went on to lay railroads, found banks and exploit the fur trade, and helped form the political infrastructure of modern day Canada. This b...

The Cavalier of the Apocalypse (Aristide Ravel Mysteries Book 1)

by Susanne Alleyn

The first Aristide Ravel mystery:

In the icy winter of 1786, in the final years before the French Revolution, hunger, cold, and seething frustration with the iron grip of France’s absolute monarchy drive poor and rich alike to outright defiance. Slums, fashionable cafés, and even aristocratic mansions echo with discontent and the first warning signals of the approaching turmoil of 1789.

Paris’s cemeteries are foul and disease-ridden, but no one, including penniless writer Aristide Ravel, expects to find a man with his throat cut lying dead in a churchyard, surrounded by strange Masonic symbols. Already suspected of subversive activities, Ravel must now clear his name of murder. His search for answers amid the city’s literary and intellectual demimonde—w...
