REMF Life Inside The Wire

by Kevin Baldwin

REMF Life Inside The WireMOST VIETNAM VETERANS SAW COMBAT. Actually the opposite is true; only a relatively small percentage was ever involved in combat. In fact, it is likely less than 30% of all who served there ever saw combat of any sort during their war. (Myths & Misconceptions: Vietnam War Folklore - by Michael Kelley, July 1998).Some 2.6 million Americans served in the Republic of Vietnam between 1957 and 1975. So what were the other "likely more than" 70% of them up to in that place? Or more to the point, who wants to read a Vietnam book or watch a Vietnam film or documentary about a Company Clerk or a Switchboard Operator? Or how about the Mess Sergeant or the Motor Pool? Or even a focus on the BOQ? Borrr...ing! Then again, if you haven't read about or watched any of that, an...

Worked To Death: Auschwitz-Birkenau Holocaust

by Amy Cravitz

This is the seventh book that Amy has put together in her quest to uncover every faucet of daily life in the hell of a German extermination camp. Translated from its original Polish, Amy strives to maintain the exact flavor of psychological terror that the Jewish workers at Auschwitz-Birkenau had to endure. Many were put to death or simply died on their own. Others were given scraps of food in return for slaving away for long days of merciless back breaking labor. Sometimes the work seemed worse than death itself. Here, the every day life of one such worker is chronicled, but with a twist. This particular worker finds his way into one of the 'trick programs' put together to fool Red Cross visiting groups. In this fascinating account, we can readily see how easy it would have been to trick ...

Inside Cuba: A Visual Introduction

Few Americans have traveled to Havana, and still fewer have traveled deeper into this isolated country.Chris Messner, a Fine Art Photographer, was drawn to Cuba, by his artistic curiosity. He covered thousands of miles on the island's back roads photographing out of the way places. He saw Cuba as it exists today and captured images of a land full of color, beauty and the raw environment where people weather hardships with generosity, resourcefulness and dignity.Messner's photographs of people, architecture, old cars, and sites of historical significance provide an engaging window on this enigmatic country.

Women's Work and Chicano Families: Cannery Workers of the Santa Clara Valley (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)

by Patricia Zavella

At the time Women’s Work and Chicano Families: Cannery Workers of the Santa Clara Valley was published, little research had been done on the relationship between the wage labor and household labor of Mexican American women. Drawing on revisionist social theories relating to Chicano family structure as well as on feminist theory, Patricia Zavella paints a compelling picture of the Chicano women who worked in northern California’s fruit and vegetable canneries. Her book combines social history, shop floor ethnography, and in-depth interviews to explore the links between Chicano family life and gender inequality in the labor market....

A Bowl for a Coin: A Commodity History of Japanese Tea

by William Wayne Farris

A Bowl for a Coin is the first book in any language to describe and analyze the history of all Japanese teas from the plant’s introduction to the archipelago around 750 to the present day. To understand the triumph of the tea plant in Japan, William Wayne Farris begins with its cultivation and goes on to describe the myriad ways in which the herb was processed into a palatable beverage, ultimately resulting in the wide variety of teas we enjoy today. Along the way, he traces in fascinating detail the shift in tea’s status from exotic gift item from China, tied to Heian (794–1185) court ritual and medicinal uses, to tax and commodity for exchange in the 1350s, to its complete nativization in Edo (1603–1868) art and literature and its eventual place on the table of every Japanese hou...

Language between God and the Poets: Ma‘na in the Eleventh Century (Berkeley Series in Postclassical Islamic Scholarship Book 2)

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. In the Arabic eleventh-century, scholars were intensely preoccupied with the way that language generated truth and beauty. Their work in poetics, logic, theology, and lexicography defined the intellectual space between God and the poets. In Language Between God and the Poets, Alexander Key argues that ar-Raghib al-Isfahani, Ibn Furak, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), and Abd al-Qahir al-Jurjani shared a conceptual vocabulary based on the words ma‘na and haqiqah. They used this vocabulary to build theories of language, mind, and reality that answered perennial questions: how to structure language and reference, how to describe G...

Chronicle of the Kings of England: From the Earliest Period to the Reign of King Stephen

by William of Malmesbury

The history of the English, from their arrival in Britain to his own times, has been written by Bede, a man of singular learning and modesty, in a clear and captivating style. After him you will not, in my opinion, easily find any person who has attempted to compose in Latin the history of this people. Let others declare whether their researches in this respect have been, or are likely to be, more fortunate; my own labour, though diligent in the extreme, has, down to this period, been without its reward. There, are, indeed, some notices of antiquity, written in the vernacular tongue after the manner of a chronicle, and arranged according to the years of our Lord. By means of these alone, the times succeeding this man have been rescued from oblivion: for of Elward, a noble and illustrious...

The Baron of Beacon Hill: A biography of John Hancock

John Hancock belongs to that nearly mythical assemblage, the Founding Fathers, and his bold signature across the Declaration of Independence has placed him among the most famous of that legendary group. Indeed, the very renown of his signature has tended to obscure his position as one of the most extraordinary politicians in American history.Hancock was born in Braintree, Massachusetts, in 1737. When his father died in 1744 after a short illness, seven-year-old John was sent to live with his childless Uncle Thomas, a prosperous merchant in Boston. John attended Boston Latin School and later Harvard, where he was an indifferent student, and then joined his uncle as an apprentice in the world of commerce. At the age of twenty-seven, when his uncle passed away, he became one of the richest me...

The Ghost of Rome: Volume I - The Gothic Wars

by Virgil Cain

It was famously stated by the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes that “the Papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof”.“The Ghost of Rome” explores that concept in detail, utilizing a character-driven narrative to bring life to the final years of the greatest empire the world has ever known. It is the rare work of fiction that informs even as it entertains, illuminating an era that is often derided as the decline of an empire rather than the birth of a kingdom.As Rome fell into disrepair, the Kingdom of Christ emerged. It was a transition so seamless that one can only be intrigued by the machinations that allowed the improbable rise of Christianity from a lone hilltop in Judea to conquer the Roman world inside of 350 yea...

Salem's Theocracy: Shattered on the Rock of Witchcraft

by Corinda Marsh

Little Dorcas Good was four years old when she was arrested for practicing witchcraft. She was chained in a dungeon jail, unable to walk about or see the light of day for months. Giles Corey was eighty years old when he was crushed to death for refusing to participate in the madness. Twenty innocent people died on Gallows Hill in Salem in 1692; more died in jail. Frightened girls accused men, women, and children of tormenting them through specters, ghosts, and witchcraft. The girls were spurred on by evil men who had hidden motives. All this was made possible by a Puritan Theocracy. Not until the theocracy smashed itself upon the rock did the tragedy end....

Four Weeks in the Trenches

by Fritz Kreisler

This brief record of the fighting on the Eastern front in the great war is the outcome of a fortunate meeting. The writer chanced to be dining with Mr. Kreisler soon after his arrival in this country, after his dismissal from the hospital where he recovered from his wound. For nearly two hours he listened, thrilled and moved, to the great violinist's modest, vivid narrative of his experiences and adventures. It seemed in the highest degree desirable that the American public should have an opportunity of reading this narrative from the pen of one in whose art so many of us take a profound interest. It also was apparent that since so little of an authentic nature had been heard from the Russo-Austrian field of warfare, this story would prove an important contribution to the contemporary hist...

The Moctezuman: A SciFi Horror Comedy (Lunch Reads Book 1)

by E.C. Stever

"It's The Martian meets The Evil Dead... at the end of the Aztec Empire." A new prehistoric scifi horror from an Ancient Alien visitor. I wish he'd hurry up and sacrifice me, like I planned it. Otherwise I might die in this dank temple. But here he stands, nephew to the emperor of a quarter-million Aztec warriors, and Moctezuma does the one thing I don't want: he waits. I've been locked up on this planet too long. If I don't get home soon, I'll be one dead alien. All I really need is for Moctezuma to drag me up to the altar, pluck out my beating heart, maybe coat his forearms with my blood if he has time. Is that so much to ask? I wonder...Maybe Moctezuma knows what I really am. I mean, I look human. At least I think I got all the head-holes in the right places. But what if Moctezum...
