Native American History: A Captivating Guide to the Long History of Native Americans Including Stories of the Wounded Knee Massacre, Native American Tribes, Hiawatha and More

If you want to explore the schocking history of the Native Americans then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!“History is written by the victors,” said the victor Winston Churchill. But does that compromise the truth of what really happened?Propaganda has always played a crucial role in turning tides and swaying opinion, and in few places is that more pronounced than in the wholesale slaughter of the native peoples in both North and South America. When some of the people of European descent could not get what they wanted from the Native Americans, they would demonize or dehumanize them so that the American people would clamor for government intervention. This is, for example, evident by analyzing Andrew Jackson's speech to Congress on Indian removal where he would refer to the Nat...

WHO ARE THEY: And why do they hate us?

by Jerry Henrie

Who are they is easy, they are Jews who are in power in all fields. They are the Jews of Hollywood and the music business who have abased the morals of all western societies. Who have promoted black race rappers who in turn have pushed the gang lifestyle upon so many young black men, this is just one example.

Shaping Natural History and Settler Society: Mary Elizabeth Barber and the Nineteenth-Century Cape (Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies Series)

by Tanja Hammel

This book explores the life and work of Mary Elizabeth Barber, a British-born settler scientist who lived in the Cape during the nineteenth century. It provides a lens into a range of subjects within the history of knowledge and science, gender and social history, postcolonial, critical heritage and archival studies. The book examines the international importance of the life and works of a marginalized scientist, the instrumentalisation of science to settlers' political concerns and reveals the pivotal but largely silenced contribution of indigenous African experts. Including a variety of material, visual and textual sources, this study explores how these artefacts are archived and displayed in museums and critically analyses their content and silences. The book traces Barber’s legacy ac...

The Innovator Versus the Collective

by Brian Phillips

Why do some cultures abound with innovation and progress? Why do some industries amaze us with their continual innovation, while others seem frozen in time? Why will we stand in line—sometime for days—for the latest iPhone or PlayStation, but demand Congressional hearings if we must wait in line for gasoline?The answers to these questions go beyond a particular culture or even a particular industry. Fundamentally, the answers go to the core of all human relations and interactions. The social and political policies that we advocate and support today will determine the innovation and progress (or lack thereof) that we experience tomorrow. If we do not understand and enact the social/political cause of innovation and progress, we cannot expect to enjoy the effect.It is said that those who...
