Revolutionary Acts: Amateur Theater and the Soviet State, 1917-1938

by Lynn Mally

During the Russian Revolution and Civil War, amateur theater groups sprang up in cities across the country. Workers, peasants, students, soldiers, and sailors provided entertainment ranging from improvisations to gymnastics and from propaganda sketches to the plays of Chekhov. In Revolutionary Acts, Lynn Mally reconstructs the history of the amateur stage in Soviet Russia from 1917 to the height of the Stalinist purges. Her book illustrates in fascinating detail how Soviet culture was transformed during the new regime's first two decades in power.Of all the arts, theater had a special appeal for mass audiences in Russia, and with the coming of the revolution it took on an important role in the dissemination of the new socialist culture. Mally's analysis of amateur theater as a space where ...

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.

Enigmatic Divine Comedy

by L. A. Braun

Enjoy this stunning exploration of Leonardo Da Vinci's secret number '26' and REBUS in relation to the epic saga 'Divine Comedy.' This book walks the reader through the realms of the unseen supernatural world in the highly-revered poem of the ‘Divine Comedy.’ Originally penned in the early 1300’s A.D., it had been an account of Dante’s personal journey into the supernatural world. Along the way we deliberate on the relevance of Leonardo Da Vinci’s secrets—primarily the number ’26’ and rebus—to the related artwork. We leave no rock unturned in respect to our search for the meaning of Da Vinci’s secrets. This book is an enthralling spellbinder tracing the hidden number ‘26’ and rebus (pictures used for words) all over the finest artwork and illustrations for the 'Divi...

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsThe United Nations is one of the most famous bodies in the world, and its predecessor, the League of Nations, might be equally notorious. In fact, President Woodrow Wilson’s pet project was controversial from nearly the minute it was conceived. At the end of World War I, Wilson's pleas at the Paris Peace Conference relied on his Fourteen Points, which included the establishment of a League of Nations, but while his points were mostly popular amongst Americans and Europeans alike, leaders at the Peace Conference largely discarded them and favored different approaches. British leaders saw their singular aim as the maintenance of British colonial possessions. France, meanwhile, only wanted to ensure ...

Understanding the Vietnam War

by Dr. Thomas Bruce

The Vietnam War, also called the Vietnam Conflict, is one of the great defining wars in American’s history, with an influence on the American psyche only surpassed by the Civil War. The armies of the United States have won and lost many battles during the wars it has become engaged it, but until Vietnam America had never actually lost a war. Lost is probably too strong a word to use. The American homeland was never attacked, and US forces were never decisively defeated in the field. America simply failed to win the war. The nation was unable to find the tactics to defeat the enemies will to continue fighting, while the war drained their own stamina to persevere with the conflict any longer. The ultimate withdrawal of US armed forces from Vietnam bruised America’s ego and shook th...

The Vikings

Novels, Readers, and Reviewers: Responses to Fiction in Antebellum America

by Nina Baym

This book describes and characterizes responses of American readers to fiction in the generation before the Civil War. It is based on close examination of the reviews of all novels—both American and European—that appeared in major American periodicals during the years 1840–1860, a period in which magazines, novels, and novel reviews all proliferated. Nina Baym makes uses of the reviews to gain information about the formal, aesthetic, and moral expectations of reviewers. Her major conclusion is that the accepted view about the American novel before the Civil War—the view that the atmosphere in America was hostile to fiction—is a myth. There is compelling evidence, she shows, for the existence of a veritable novel industry and, concomitantly, a vast audience for fiction in the 1840...

The Middle Ages: A History From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Middle Ages
What do you think of when you consider the Middle Ages?
Knights in armor and damsels in distress?
Vikings plundering monasteries?
Religious dissenters burning at the stake?
The dead bodies piling up as war, famine, and plague devastated Europe?
Think again.

While all these are part of the tapestry of the medieval era, the threads of politics, personality and war, culture, religion, education and the arts are vastly more intricate and fascinating. Think Charlemagne, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Joan of Arc, Peter Abelard, Geoffrey Chaucer and a riveting cast of thousands. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Western Europe had to reinvent itself and redefine its philosophical parentage.

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...

The Diary of American Exceptionalism: Pivotal Events in American History 1783 - 2019

by Alan Sewell

“American Exceptionalism” has become a commonly heard expression in recent political discussions. It has many connotations, some of which may be perceived as chauvinistic by the politically correct.

What does it really mean?

Perhaps the best way to understand it is to hear the words of those Americans who MADE us such an exceptional nation through their exceptional courage to do what was difficult and right, rather than easy and expedient, during our most trying times.

This book isn’t a rehash of those famous phrases like “Give me Liberty, or give me Death!” Rather, it is intended to reveal the thoughts of our leaders during their most discouraging moments.

They’re the words of George Washington, frustrated by the petty qua...

Ancient Greek Consciousness (Introductions to Anthroposophy Book 3)

by Rudolf Steiner

This booklet offers excerpts from three lectures by Rudolf Steiner on ancient Greek consciousness. The lectures are disparate: they date from 1911, 1921 and 1922, and they are all different in style. But they are unified by providing extraordinary insight into that consciousness which is so very different from ours. To say even that Steiner rewrote history would be an understatement: it would be more accurate to say that he added a whole new dimension to historiography as such. The evolution of consciousness as Steiner describes it transcends any mere history of ideas, arguing that not only the content, but the very structure of consciousness, the subject-object relationship itself, has evolved radically over time. Steiner’s full account is dispersed across numerous volumes, but, fortuna...

by Intelligent+

The LSAT is approved by the American Bar Association and uses three kinds of questions for measuring your skills viz. verbal reasoning, analytical thinking, and critical reading. Is the test really hard? Well, the easier the LSAT test is, the better your scores will be. In the case of LSAT, if you score 180, it is equivalent to getting 99.97 percent. However, in the LSAT, getting 89 correct answers is considered as a good score. It also indicates that LSAT is a tough test, generally speaking. LSAT is scored on a scale of 120 to 180, and the average score is 150. However, in case you are looking to get admitted into the top twenty-five law schools in the United States, you will have to score in excess of 160.

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...
