The Gilded Age: A History From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

The Gilded Age* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.The period from 1870 to 1900 in the United States has become known as the Gilded Age, during which America was transformed almost beyond recognition. In the 1870s, the country was still recovering from a horrendously destructive Civil War. The nation was still mainly agrarian; cities were relatively small and large-scale industry almost non-existent. Thirty years later, the U.S. had become an industrial powerhouse with massive cities featuring skyscrapers, electric lights, automobiles on the streets, and subways running below. An influx of immigrants from different parts of the world had changed the very nature of American society which fe...

Murderous Minds Volume 5: Stories of Real Life Murderers That Escaped the Headlines

by Kelly Gaines

Most of us feel safe in our homes and communities. We consider the familiar to be secure, which puts us at ease when moving through the environments we visit most. What if the security of your home offers is a lie? What if the people closest to you remain in your life with sinister intent? If a home can become a slaughterhouse, should we ever feel safe? These six terrifying stories tell the fates of individuals who missed critical details in their homes, oversights resulting in deadly consequences. Evil can hide within the walls of our comfortable lives without our consent or notice. Each of these tales follows men and women who were shocked to learn that the greatest threat to their safety was living alongside them without their knowledge. There is no common time or place- no connecting t...

VieVie La Fontaine

by Linda Heavner Gerald

VieVie La Fontaine begins with an encapsulated history of the rise of Adolf Hitler in post World War I Germany. At the same time he starts his ascent, a beautiful and talented young woman, VieVie La Fontaine, continues to enjoy her life of wealth inside of Paris. This haunting story demonstrates the terror, denial, and depravity of Europe as a madman rises to control most of that continent. Told by a young Jewish man, Mark Lichter, the irony of the entire situation cries from the pages. Security, comfort and safety are ripped from his hands just as almost every Jew in Germany experienced. The reader discovers the best of Paris such as the Ritz Carlton and the life of wealthy Americans living there only later to read of the horrors hiding beneath the bright lights and glamour. It is diffic...

Melania Trump: The Slovenian Side of the Story

by Sandi Gorisek

Let’s play a simple game called “Experimental Lottery” in which you win 1 million dollars, but the winner must divide the winnings between himself and a perfect stranger. The catch is that if the stranger refuses his share, you both end up with nothing and you have only one opportunity. In a real case scenario, computer programmed logic would take anything which is common sense since anything is better than nothing, yet the human mind would refuse anything below 20% of the total winnings. Do you think that the share you offer would change if you were raised in humble surroundings with a state driven economy in which all men are supposed to be equal? How much would this differ if you were male or female, if your parents were rich or poor or if you were raised in a rural or urban envir...

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...

History of Greece: History of Greece: From the Cradle of Western Civilization to Myths, Legends, Democracy and Modern Day Greek History

by Nicole James

Read this for free with your Kindle Unlimited MembershipGreece is a colorful country and has always been the target of many tourists looking to have a relaxing time. However, what many people do not seem to know is that Greece also packs a rich history – all lying beneath the beautiful landscapes and beaches. Its history starts thousands of years before the Christian calendar was used – and each moment represents a cultural artifact that enriched more than a single country. Greece went through many wars – big and small. Some were fought because certain conquerors had their eyes on the land – whereas others were supposed to serve as means of provoking a change in the country (e.g. the civil wars). However, while it did not emerge unscathed from every war, Greece still managed to rec...

A History of Force Feeding: Hunger Strikes, Prisons and Medical Ethics, 1909–1974

by Ian Miller

This book is Open Access under a CC BY license. It is the first monograph-length study of the force-feeding of hunger strikers in English, Irish and Northern Irish prisons. It examines ethical debates that arose throughout the twentieth century when governments authorised the force-feeding of imprisoned suffragettes, Irish republicans and convict prisoners. It also explores the fraught role of prison doctors called upon to perform the procedure. Since the Home Office first authorised force-feeding in 1909, a number of questions have been raised about the procedure. Is force-feeding safe? Can it kill? Are doctors who feed prisoners against their will abandoning the medical ethical norms of their profession? And do state bodies use prison doctors to help tackle political dissidence at times...

With so much time and history, the Middle East peace process has become laden with unique, politically sensitive concepts like the right of return, contiguous borders, secure borders, demilitarized zones, and security requirements, with players like the Quartet, Palestinian Authority, Fatah, Hamas, the Arab League and Israel. Over time, it has become exceedingly difficult for even sophisticated political pundits and followers to keep track of it all. Thanks to the existential crises Israel faced in the first decades of its existence, it was...
