The Hidden Story of Richard Sorge

by Conrad Bauer

Richard Sorge was the greatest spy that the world has ever known.
Read his story and find out how his spy work changed the course of history.

It can be easy to think of spies just as we see them in the movies. All of the high speed car chases, the witty one liners, and the femme fatales feed into a common conception of an international man of mystery. But real spy work is different. Real spy work is, ultimately, human. It is conducted by flawed men, exploiting the fear and ambition of similarly damaged individuals. At the end, the credits do not roll. Spies are far likelier to find themselves caught and executed in a foreign land than they are to drive off into the sunset with a new paramour on their arm. Real spies are real people and they are in real danger at all tim...

The Knights Templar treasure is one the World’s most enduring mysteries. Is it a myth or a reality? Where could it possibly be hidden?Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited! The Knights Templar existed officially for less than 200 years. Founded to protect pilgrims who were traveling through the Holy Lands, their rise to power was sudden.

Sweet Land of Liberty: Old Times in the Colonies

by Charles Carleton Coffin

"The settlement of our country was the beginning of a new era in human affairs. The people of England, ever since the days of King John, when the barons compelled him to sign the Magna Charta in the meadow of Runnymede, had struggled against tyranny; and when the emigrants sailed across the Atlantic to rear their homes in Virginia and New England, it was the transplanting of liberty to a continent where everything was new, and where the conditions that surrounded them were wholly unlike those of the Old World.This volume is an outline of some of the principal events that transpired during the colonial period of our country, and portrays the ardships and sufferings of those who laid the foundations of a new empire. It will show how the Old World laws, habits, and customs were gradually chan...

Emerging States and Economies: Their Origins, Drivers, and Challenges Ahead (Emerging-Economy State and International Policy Studies)

by Takashi Shiraishi

This open access book asks why and how some of the developing countries have “emerged” under a set of similar global conditions, what led individual countries to choose the particular paths that led to their “emergence,” and what challenges confront them. If we are to understand the nature of major risks and uncertainties in the world, we must look squarely at the political and economic dynamics of emerging states, such as China, India, Brazil, Russia, and ASEAN countries. Their rapid economic development has changed the distribution of wealth and power in the world. Yet many of them have middle income status. To global governance issues, they tend to adopt approaches that differ from those of advanced industrialized democracies. At home, rapid economic growth and social cha...

The Pathologisation of Homosexuality in Fascist Italy: The Case of 'G' (Genders and Sexualities in History)

by Gabriella Romano

This open access book investigates the pathologisation of homosexuality during the fascist regime in Italy through an analysis of the case of G., a man with "homosexual tendencies" interned in the Collegno mental health hospital in 1928. No systematic study exists on the possibility that Fascism used internment in an asylum as a tool of repression for LGBT people, as an alternative to confinement on an island, prison or home arrests. This research offers evidence that in some cases it did.The book highlights how the dictatorship operated in a low-key, shadowy and undetectable manner, bending pre-existing legislation. Its brutality was - and still is - difficult to prove. It also emphasises the ways in which existing stereotypes on homosexuality were reinforced by the regime propaganda in s...

The REAL Roosevelts: An Omitted History: What PBS & Ken Burns Didn't Tell You

by M King

In the pantheon of American heroes, few names are more revered than that of 'Roosevelt'. As the decades pass into the century mark, the recent works of "historians" such as Doris Kearns Goodwin and film producer Ken Burns have exalted the Holy Trinity of Roosevelt to demi-god status.

There was Theodore, hero of San Juan Hill, builder of the Panama Canal, scourge of the big bad "Robber Barons", and tireless champion of "the worker" whose manly image is immortalized in the stone of Mount Rushmore.

There was Franklin, the altruistic savior of America who turned against his own class to serve "the common man". FDR, we are told, saved America, and indeed, the world. For that, his own image is immortalized on every American dime.

And finally, there was E...

The far off war horns of roman legions marching to battle won’t be heard from the Villa Juliana, but their coming together will have its repercussions as Britannia’s army is usurped by the rebel Magnentius and unless a ruling compromise is agreed with the legitimate emperor Constantius, citizen soldier will again face up to citizen soldier. None is forthcoming.Therefore, from the mosaic splendour of rural pagan life, the Briton Salvius Castus is unwittingly drawn into this struggle against his will. Fighting far from home and uncertain that he will ever return, what is to be left of his father in law’s promises for him? Will the cautious and politically sensitive Flavius Martinus rise up against the new order or will he too succumb? What of Salvius? What is he set to lose?...

REMF Life Inside The Wire

Submerged on the Surface: The Not-So-Hidden Jews of Nazi Berlin, 1941–1945

by Jr., Richard N. Lutjens,

Between 1941 and 1945, thousands of German Jews, in fear for their lives, made the choice to flee their impending deportations and live submerged in the shadows of the Nazi capital. Drawing on a wealth of archival evidence and interviews with survivors, this book reconstructs the daily lives of Jews who stayed in Berlin during the war years. Contrary to the received wisdom that “hidden” Jews stayed in attics and cellars and had minimal contact with the outside world, the author reveals a cohort of remarkable individuals who were constantly on the move and actively fought to ensure their own survival....

Dissecting the Criminal Corpse: Staging Post-Execution Punishment in Early Modern England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Elizabeth T. Hurren

Those convicted of homicide were hanged on the public gallows before being dissected under the Murder Act in Georgian England. Yet, from 1752, whether criminals actually died on the hanging tree or in the dissection room remained a medical mystery in early modern society. Dissecting the Criminal Corpse takes issue with the historical cliché of corpses dangling from the hangman’s rope in crime studies. Some convicted murderers did survive execution in early modern England. Establishing medical death in the heart-lungs-brain was a physical enigma. Criminals had large bull-necks, strong willpowers, and hearty survival instincts. Extreme hypothermia often disguised coma in a prisoner hanged in the winter cold. The youngest and fittest were capable of reviving on the dissection table. Many d...

Seeing Jesus as the Passover Lamb

by James Thomas Lee Jr

This text has been written to show the clear parallels between the children of Israel having been delivered from Egyptian bondage during the offering of the first Passover lamb and the possibility for deliverance from sin and the penalty of sin by the offering of the Passover Lamb who is Jesus. It begins in the first two chapters by explaining how the children of Israel had even become slaves in Egypt. It then shares the birth of Moses, a little bit about his life, and how the Lord had used him to bring the children of Israel out of their bondage. Beginning in chapter five of this text, Jesus will be shown to be the Passover Lamb that takes away the sin of the world. That does not mean that everyone is automatically saved. But it does mean that everyone can be saved. In chapter six, ...

The True Tale Of Charlie Plant: A Historical Biography

by Jane Sherwood

Comment by Kev Reynolds a travel writer and lecturer with over 40 published books too his name; all available on Amazon.I took Charlie Plant to Lyme, and spent several hours stretched out with him on a large sofa while rain beat against the windows like shotgun pellets, and was quickly absorbed into the lives of Janes ancestor. And what lives they led!  What roller-coaster existences some of them endured. The (rare) good times and the (far more often) grim times. All came over in such a personal way that I found the reading experience at times uplifting, at times deeply melancholic. Jane has a way of drawing her reader into the period she describes with a rare intensity. So much so that I was relieved to finish the book. That is not a criticism. In fact it is a tribute to the power of the...

The Taming of Evolution: The Persistence of Nonevolutionary Views in the Study of Humans

by Davydd Greenwood

The theory of evolution has clearly altered our views of the biological world, but in the study of human beings, evolutionary and preevolutionary views continue to coexist in a state of perpetual tension. The Taming of Evolution addresses the questions of how and why this is so. Davydd Greenwood offers a sustained critique of the nature/nurture debate, revealing the complexity of the relationship between science and ideology. He maintains that popular contemporary theories, most notably E. O. Wilson’s human sociobiology and Marvin Harris’s cultural materialism, represent pre-Darwinian notions overlaid by elaborate evolutionary terminology. Greenwood first details the humoral-environmental and Great Chain of Being theories that dominated Western thinking before Darwin. He systematically...

Germany On Their Minds: German Jewish Refugees in the United States and Their Relationships with Germany, 1938–1988 (Studies in German History Book 25)

by Anne C. Schenderlein

Throughout the 1930s and early 1940s, approximately ninety thousand German Jews fled their homeland and settled in the United States, prior to that nation closing its borders to Jewish refugees. And even though many of them wanted little to do with Germany, the circumstances of the Second World War and the postwar era meant that engagement of some kind was unavoidable—whether direct or indirect, initiated within the community itself or by political actors and the broader German public. This book carefully traces these entangled histories on both sides of the Atlantic, demonstrating the remarkable extent to which German Jews and their former fellow citizens helped to shape developments from the Allied war effort to the course of West German democratization....

Entangled Entertainers: Jews and Popular Culture in Fin-de-Siècle Vienna (Austrian and Habsburg Studies Book 24)

by Klaus Hödl

Viennese popular culture at the turn of the twentieth century was the product of the city’s Jewish and non-Jewish residents alike. While these two communities interacted in a variety of ways to their mutual benefit, Jewish culture was also inevitably shaped by the city’s persistent bouts of antisemitism. This fascinating study explores how Jewish artists, performers, and impresarios reacted to prejudice, showing how they articulated identity through performative engagement rather than anchoring it in origin and descent. In this way, they attempted to transcend a racialized identity even as they indelibly inscribed their Jewish existence into the cultural history of the era....

Napoleon vs the Old and New World Orders: How the Rothschilds Conquered Britain & France

by M King

We all know, at least vaguely, the story about Napoleon Bonaparte. You know -- the one about the self-professed son of a republican revolution against monarchy, who then installed himself as a monarch. Napoleon was, we are told, an egomaniacal tyrant with "short man's inferiority complex" who tried to enslave the European continent. Led by the brave British, a coalition of “The Good Guys" banded together to thwart the ambitions of the great “usurper” and trouble-maker of Europe.

There is just one problem with this official narrative of the giant historical figure of the 1800’s. To put it gently – it’s a damn lie. (surprise – surprise).

Now, one can easily understand the reason for the propagation of lies and slanders aimed at Napoleon being perpetua...

The Early Life of Miss Anne Lister and the Curious Tale of Miss Eliza Raine

by Patricia L Hughes

Two young girls pledge undying love, marry each other secretly and promise to live together when they reach the age of twenty-one - but nothing works out as planned. This tale of Georgian England is from real diaries and letters revealing two women whose circumstances changed beyond belief. If you're looking for the sedate world of Jane Austen you won't find it here. This is the wild world of nineteenth century northern England made famous by the Bronte sisters who lived nearby, and based their characters on these real people. Eliza Raine was almost certainly the model for Mrs Rochester in Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Eyre', while Anne Lister was depicted as 'Shirley' by Anne Bronte. Anne Lister was born in 1791 and started life as the eldest daughter of a poor branch of a landed family. Her d...
