The French Mandate for Syria and the Lebanon: The History and Legacy of France’s Administration of the Levant after World War I

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 ...

The Vikings

by James Tyrell

The Viking reputation is of bloodthirsty seafaring warriors, repeatedly plundering the British Isles and the North Atlantic throughout the early Middle Ages. Yet Vikings were also traders, settlers and farmers, with complex artistic and linguistic culture.

James Tyrell reveals the Viking world in its entirety: their history, society and culture, and their expansion overseas for trade, colonization, and plunder. Tyrell cuts through the myths to provide new insights into their rune stones, ships and religion. His book takes us to new discoveries in Scandinavia, Iceland and Greenland, while examining contemporary Viking re-enactment groups, Nazi-sponsored excavations, and DNA testing for elusive Viking blood, leading to a fascinating re-appraisal of the meaning of the term 'Vikin...

The Crimean War: Volume I An English Translation

by Yevgeny Tarle

The Concert of Europe established after the Napoleonic Wars is credited with keeping the 19th century relatively peaceful. The new world order was, in many respects, an attempt to turn back the clock. Much of Europe remained under the control of absolute monarchs installed by divine right, as seen in the Holy Alliance, a pact signed by Prussia, Austria and Russia to preserve “Christian” principles.Russia had gained an exaggerated aura of invincibility by taking the lead role in defeating Napoleon Bonaparte. The Russian Empire was incomprehensively vast and its military potential was incalculable, but it was far less formidable than was feared. The profoundly conservative Tsar Nicholas I resisted change and was seen by many as the bulwark of reaction on the continent. Unfortunately for ...

LONDON A VISITORS GUIDE

by Paul Chell

My Book is a visitors guide to London. I was prompted when two American tourists on the South Embankment asked me to take their photographs. We spoke briefly about London and they were absolutely amazed when I told them that this Embankment was reclaimed land from the river Thames. They didn't even know that fact. I told them about the frost fairs when the river used to freeze over a couple of centuries ago and again they didn't know this either. So it motivated me to write a visitors guide to London from my viewpoint as I know the Capital very well. Surely, London has to be one of the greatest Capitals in the world. There is so much history here. The Tower of London was built in 1076 and is still standing. How many other countries can go back that far? In fact some of the London Wall on ...

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.

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...

European Heritage, Dialogue and Digital Practices (Critical Heritages of Europe)

by Areti Galani

European Heritage, Dialogue and Digital Practices focuses on the intersection of heritage, dialogue and digital culture in the context of Europe. Responding to the increased emphasis on the potential for heritage and digital technologies to foster dialogue and engender communitarian identities in Europe, the book explores what kind of role digital tools, platforms and practices play in supporting and challenging dialogue about heritage in the region.Drawing on fieldwork involving several European museums and heritage organisations, the chapters in this volume critically engage with the role of digital technology in heritage work and its association with ideas of democratisation, multivocality and possibilities for feedback and dialogic engagement in the emerging digital public sphere.

The Crimean War: Volume II An English Translation

by Yevgeny Tarle

Yevgeny Tarle was a historian most interested in diplomacy. In Volume I of this work, he devoted a great many pages to the failure of that diplomacy to avoid the Crimean War. Indeed, he makes a convincing argument that the diplomacy was not intended to avoid war, but rather to assign blame. The two most influential actors, Tsar Nicholas I and Emperor Napoleon III, wanted war for their own purposes.After the abortive Russian Danubian campaign of 1853-54, the Western powers made it abundantly clear that the integrity of the Ottoman Empire was not their sole concern. French and British troops were first landed in parts of Greece and Bulgaria then under the control of the Turks, but it soon became clear that there would be no encounter there with the withdrawing Russian forces. It was decided ...

The History of the Roman Empire: A Captivating Guide to the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire Including Stories of Roman Emperors Such as Augustus Octavian, Trajan, and Claudius

by Srdjan Kotarlic

The Roman Empire is the post-republican phase in the development of ancient Roman statehood, characterized by an autocratic form of government and large territorial possessions in Europe and the Mediterranean. Rome was the only state in history that owned the entire coast of the Mediterranean. The chronological framework of the existence of the Roman Empire covers the period from the reign of the first emperor Octavian Augustus to the division of the empire into Western and Eastern and the subsequent fall of the Western Roman empire, that is, from 27 BC on to 476. The eastern part of the Roman Empire with its center in Constantinople existed for another 977 years - until 1453.Rome began as a group of villages along Italy’s Tiber River.About 750 B.C., the villages joined together to form ...

Robin Hood: The Legacy of a Folk Hero

by Robert White

If you thought you knew about Robin Hood… then think again!Written by Robert White, chairman of the World Wide Robin Hood Society.Many tales have been told about Robin Hood. The traditional stories of good versus evil and his quest to regain his rightful inheritance are universally appealing. The legend has intrigued generation after generation and everyone has their own personal vision of Robin Hood - a swashbuckling hero; a romantic outlaw; a bandit thief; a fighter of injustice or a benevolent champion of the people. Numerous books have been written by historians trying to untangle the myth, establish his actual existence and speculate on just who he might have actually been. Consequently, the subject of the globally renowned hero of English folklore has become extensively complex...

Greek Mythology: The Ancient Myths and Legends of Greek Mythology

by Patrick Auerbach

Greek Mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece. The Greeks were polytheistic in their religious beliefs. Polytheistic means they believed in and worshiped many different gods. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to shed light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself.

In Greek Mythology, the gods often represented different forms of nature. Their religion/mythology had no formal structure with the exception of various festivals held in h...
