by Pat LaMarche

We're rewriting history. This time we're telling the truth.

"Daddy, What's the Middle Class" is a series of heart warming – often tragic – tales of unacknowledged greatness. Because few of us actually learned how the middle class invented itself, you won't recognize most of the names, dates and places in this unconventional history book.

These stories will stick in your mind, inspire you to honor the legacy of forgotten heroes, and encourage you to do your part to restore the middle class.

World War II Auschwitz: A History From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

World War II Auschwitz* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.Auschwitz is a monument to the barbaric inhumanity of the Nazi regime. It is the site where more than one million people were systematically tortured and killed in support of Adolf Hitler’s determination to eradicate entire populations that he viewed as racially impure. Dr. Josef Mengele conducted horrific experiments on live victims, treating his subjects as if they weren’t human. The Jews, homosexuals, Communists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the mentally and physically disabled were less than human to the Nazis. The “Final Solution,” a cornerstone of Nazi ideology, enacted a devastating sentence upon people whose only crime was their ethnic origin or their religious and political beliefs. But the voices of Auschwitz continue to be heard. Anne Frank’s diary speaks for all the innocent who were sent there. Elie Wiesel spent his life speaking out against the horrors he and others endured at Auschwitz. The recorded histories of the survivors of the camps keep the memories alive for generations whose only knowledge of the Holocaust would otherwise be through a school assignment to read The Diary of Anne Frank or by watching a movie like Schindler’s List.Auschwitz holds a bizarre fascination for those who hear about it; how could such evil thrive? How could an entire nation surrender to the rantings of a diabolical man who sought revenge against the followers of a religion? The names reverberate in a gallery of maniacs who purported to be leaders: Hitler, Goebbels, Mengele, Goering, Himmler, and the countless others who supported them. Inside you will read about...✓ Adolf Hitler and the Preservation of the Aryan Race✓ The Nazis in Charge✓ The Final Solution to the Jewish Question✓ The Angel of Death✓ Life in Auschwitz✓ Liberation and JudgmentAnd much more!Germany today is staunch in its refusal to allow Nazism to thrive. The nation that built Auschwitz and employed its Final Solution is now the country that has enacted legislation to prevent the Holocaust from being repeated. But hatred is contagious. As Martin Luther King, Jr. once observed, Adolf Hitler operated within the law when he committed his vile acts. They were laws that he created. Evil can triumph if people allow it to do so.Today, Auschwitz is a museum where people can see for themselves the terrible extent to which humanity can hate. But Auschwitz is also a warning to subsequent generations. Do not be fooled into thinking that any ethnic group, any nation, any religion is safe. When demagoguery and prejudice are allowed to legislate their evil, genocide becomes a solution to a problem rather than an unthinkable act. It happened once; it can happen again. The survivors and the victims alike want their story to be told, lest we forget.

A House Divided: This is why Donald Trump won the election

by Kenneth Edward Barnes

People not only in America, but also all over the world were stunned when Donald Trump won the presidential election. Newscasters scratched their heads, others cried, and many more were in total shock. How could this have happened? Why did it happen? I have the answer, but many will not want to hear it. Abraham Lincoln had the answer for his generation, but many in his day did not want to hear him either. The reason Donald Trump won the presidential election is because America is divided. Some believe it has not been this divided since the Civil War. There are so many issues that polarize us and put people at odds with one another. There is also animosity on both sides of nearly every issue. This is why Donald Trump won. I know because I had not voted for over forty years. I did not vote because my conscience would not allow me to vote for either party. I, like many others, was fed up with the lies, the deceit, and the broken promises of both parties. Neither party cared about the common man or woman. All they seemed to care about was how much money they could make or how they could be elected for the next term. While they were doing this, the country was going down the drain!In this book, I will address the issues that divide this country, the families of this country and the people all over the world. “A house divided” goes for not only a family or a country, but for the entire world. A marriage divided cannot stand. A family divided cannot stand. Even a country divided cannot stand. It doesn’t matter how big or small the group, if they oppose one another there will be friction, feuds and even war. The strife will continue until the division is complete. “A house divided” was coined by one who should know, and that was Christ. Lincoln also knew this was true and he had the courage to stand up for what was right, even if it meant pitting brother against brother. Many will like this book; some may even love it. Others however, will undoubtedly find it offensive, which is to be expected. This is the very reason our country is divided and proves my point. I have written many controversial books. Sometimes one of my controversial books will get a five star rating and at the same time get a very low rating because someone does not agree with what it says. This last election was very contentious, full of fighting, name-calling and lies. There has never been such an election in modern history and the divisions have only grown worse. In this short book of about 22,000 words, I will talk about the divisions, why there is such anger on both sides and why Donald Trump won. It may give some insight as to what we are dealing with, for our country as we know it, is at stake. “For a house divided against itself shall not stand.”

Mesopotamian Mythology: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Near Eastern Myths

by Matt Clayton

If you're looking for a captivating collection of Mesopotamian myths, then keep reading...The civilizations that grew up in the Tigris and Euphrates River Valleys many thousands of years ago have left important legacies: agriculture, mathematics, astronomy, the wheel, and writing. This present volume of Mesopotamian myths is divided into three sections. The first of these contains creation myths, the most extended of which is the Enuma Elish, or Babylonian creation story. In this myth, the god Marduk does battle with the dragon Tiamat, and from her body and that of her second-in-command, he creates the world. The story of Atrahasis involves not original creation but re-creation, since this is the myth of the Great Flood that the gods send to wash everything away. The good man Atrahasis is spared only by the intervention of the god Enki, who forewarns Atrahasis and tells him to build the ark that will save him, his family, and the animals. Etana’s tale is less cosmic in nature than the preceding two stories: the act of creation involved is Etana’s attempt to have a child and thus an heir to his throne.The deeds and foibles of the Mesopotamian gods are on display in the second section, in stories that inform us about the characters of these divinities and which contain themes that tell us something about Mesopotamian concepts of cosmic order. In the first story, the goddess Ishtar decides to visit the Underworld where the goddess Ereshkigal holds sway. When Ereshkigal worries that Ishtar plans to supplant her, she sets a trap that holds Ishtar prisoner until she is rescued. Ereshkigal’s deed has cosmic implications: since Ishtar is a fertility goddess, her imprisonment means that procreation on Earth is suspended. Ereshkigal is a primary figure in the next story as well, which tells how Nergal, god of war and pestilence, comes to be her consort. Nergal manages to refuse all of the blandishments Ereshkigal puts before him, except for the enticement of her body. Having given into his desire, Nergal must make the Underworld his abode and remain there as Ereshkigal’s lover or else Ereshkigal will overturn the natural order by sending the dead onto the Earth to eat the living. Divine and natural order are also themes of the last two stories in this section. In the first, the hero-god Ninurta does his own work of restoring divine order when he defeats the Anzu Bird who steals the Tablets of Destiny from Ellil, while the myth about Adapa functions as a just-so story explaining why humans are not immortal.Perhaps the most famous of all Mesopotamian myths is the Epic of Gilgamesh, an extended narrative about the exploits of Gilgamesh, king of Uruk, and his wild-man friend, Enkidu. If the stories of the gods told in the first two sections function as explanations about cosmic order, the themes of Gilgamesh center on the internal order of human beings, focusing on the deep love and friendship between Enkidu and Gilgamesh, on human fears about mortality, and the human desire for eternal life. In Mesopotamian Mythology: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Near Eastern Myths, you'll find the following Sumerian myths and topics coveredCreation MythsTales of Gods and GoddessesSelections from the Epic of GilgameshAnd much, much more!So if you want a captivating collection of Mesopotamian myths, click the “add to cart” button!

Franklin Roosevelt: A Captivating Guide to the Life of FDR

by Captivating History

Explore How FDR Went from Almost Dying at Birth to leading the United States through the Great Depression and World War IIFree History BONUS Inside!As the thirty-second president of the United States of America, Franklin Delano Roosevelt is a common household name in both his home country and the world. Known as the man who led the United States through the Great Depression and World War II, Roosevelt was a leader and a statesman, a scholar, and a politician. Franklin D. Roosevelt is the only president to have served for three consecutive terms and voted in for a fourth, a fact that allows him to stand out among the long list of American presidents. Outside of his role as president of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt lived a full life. He was a father and a son, a husband and a career man. He was a bank officer and attended prestigious universities—Harvard University and Columbia University Law School—before practicing law. Additionally, he served as vice president for the Fidelity and Deposit Company. Perhaps most famously, Roosevelt served as governor of New York and president of the United States while he suffered from polio. Instead of allowing the disease to keep him from living a full life, he went above and beyond, training himself to walk without the power of his legs so that his voters would not know that he suffered in any capacity. What this book aims to do is determine who Franklin D. Roosevelt was as a person outside of the spotlight. This book wants to answer questions about this man. How did he interact with his wife and family? What were his exploits and his vices? His favored hobbies? Franklin Roosevelt: A Captivating Guide to the Life of FDR is an outline of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s life that not only gives a brief overview of his best-known feats but also provides a glimpse into who he was as a person.Some of the topics covered in this book include:FDR's Childhood and EducationHis Personal LifeEarly Political CareerPolio and Governing of New York1932 Presidential ElectionFirst Term in PresidencySecond Term in PresidencyThird Term in PresidencyRelations with Foreign LeadershipAnd much more!Scroll to the top and select the "BUY NOW" button for instant download

Trump’s State Creepy, Deceitful: Donald Trump Uses Roy Cohn’s Ruthless Playbook to Destroy American Values

by Dave Masko

Trump’s State Creepy, Deceitful, by Dave Masko. The rise of McCarthyism in 2019 can be traced to Roy Cohn’s stooge Donald Trump as “the Donald” tried his best to read more teleprompter bullshit during Trump’s odious “State-of-the-Union” address Feb. 5, 2019. This special “new journalism” report spotlights Trump angst in essays that explain the Who, What, Where, Why and How of Trump’s ruthless style; making him the most hated president in American history. Trump’s theatrics were on full display during his very strange and deceitful sounding state-of-the-union address Feb. 5, 2019 when many who remember McCarthyism say “Trump evokes the evil hand of his mentor Roy Cohn.” Prior to Cohn’s “Angels in America” death on as a gay man suffering from AIDS, the evil lawyer taught Trump to “lie through his teeth always, and never admit he lied or is wrong,” said William Swanson, a Reed College scholar in American history. Swanson, 81, says “there’s no question Cohn breathed his devilish breath (*when Roy Cohn died on Aug. 2, 1986) into the lungs of Trump who always tweets and bellow’s his rage with the same bar-knuckled modes that Cohn used to win law suits, elections and everything else,” added with a deep sense of chagrin. “You see Donald Trump. That’s another Roy Cohn because Trump exhibits the same common thread as Cohn, Richard Nixon and even Hitler when it comes to ultimate black business dealings via Cohn’s order for ‘the Donald’ to always ‘attack, attack, attack, attack and always lies and never defend American values because Cohn and Trump hate what America stands for and that’s why Trump does the evil that men do.” For students of American history, Cohn played a key role in Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy’s odious investigations into closeted Communists and homosexuals; while Cohn was in the closet for most of his life until Trump dumped his mentor because Cohn had AIDS. Trump is loyal to no country or human being because “Trump is that evil,” say “Impeach Trump” protesters here in Portland, Oregon, who remind Trump fans that Cohn’s evil ways can best be explored in the famed Broadway plan “Angels in America.” Cohn’s other evil links with Republicans include Cohn serving as a special advisor to President Richard “Tricky Dick” Nixon and not always conscious President Ronald Reagan. Cohn was dubbed as “the quintessential fixer” by Trump, Nixon and Reagan. Go figure?

Democracy's Children: Intellectuals and the Rise of Cultural Politics

by John McGowan

How do American intellectuals try to achieve their political and social goals? By what means do they articulate their hopes for change? John McGowan seeks to identify the goals and strategies of contemporary humanistic intellectuals who strive to shape the politics and culture of their time. In a lively mix of personal reflection and shrewd analysis, McGowan visits the sites of intellectual activity (scholarly publications, professional conferences, the classroom, and the university) and considers the hazards of working within such institutional contexts to effect change outside the academy. Democracy's Children considers the historical trajectory that produced current intellectual practices. McGowan links the growing prestige of "culture" since 1800 to the growth of democracy and the obsession with modernity and explores how intellectuals became both custodians and creators of culture. Caught between fears of culture's irrelevance and dreams of its omnipotence, intellectuals pursue a cultural politics that aims for wide-ranging social transformations. For better or worse, McGowan says, the humanities are now tied to culture and to the university. The opportunities and frustrations attendant on this partnership resonate with the larger successes and failures of contemporary democratic societies. His purpose in this collection of essays is to illuminate the conditions under which intellectuals in a democracy work and at the same time to promote intellectual activities that further democratic ideals.

Queens of the Viking Age: The Oseberg Ship and the Oseberg Grave - Archeology (Omega Viking Series Book 3)

by Omega Viking Series

The Oseberg ship burial is a Viking Age burial mound containing a double female inhumation, which is located in the Oslofjord area in Norway. Through dendrochronological analysis it has been possible to determine the year in which the timbers of the grave chamber were felled, and the burial has consequently been dated to AD834. A popular study of Oseberg has been that of focusing on the women buried in the mound in order to give them an identity. At first Snorri Sturluson’s Ynglingasaga was used and it was proposed that the burial was that of Queen Åsa or of Queen Alvhild, who are the only two queens mentioned in the saga.There are many questions and mysteries about Oseberg that have not yet been answered. We still do not know for sure who was buried in the mound, what position this person held in society and why she was given such a large burial. It is also unclear whether one woman was the most important or whether the two were equally so, if they were related in some way or if they had similar functions in the community. I believe that Oseberg should be viewed within a wider context and compared to female high status burials from the Germanic Iron Age as well as to other burials from the Viking Age. Iron Age burials directly precede Viking Age ones, so that some of the particular characteristics of Oseberg might find an explanation in the earlier Germanic mortuaryThe burial was formed by pulling a ship ashore, placing it in a trench, and building a grave chamber on its deck. The aft and fore of the ship, together with the grave chamber, were then filled with a large amount of grave goods; the fore of the ship was also occupied by many sacrificed animals which, because of their position, are thought to have been killed outside the ship and then placed on it.The Oseberg mound was first excavated in 1903 and 1904, and since then it has been studied extensively. Many aspects of the burial have been considered by scholars, who have tried to reconstruct the events of the early 9th century in order to explain its grandness and significance.3 The mound has provided much interesting and unique archaeological material, thanks to the excellent preservation conditions which enabled wooden objects to survive underground for almost 1200 years. Probably the most important part of this burial is the wonderfully carved ship, which is 21.5 meters/70.5 feet long and 5.1 meters/16.7 foot wide.4 This ship, an early Viking Age construction, was useful in increasing our knowledge of Viking age ship building and sailing. Although it is thought by some that it was not suitable for ocean voyages, it is nonetheless very well built and highly decorated.5 Other important finds from the burial include decorated wagons and sledges, a wide variety of everyday objects and some woven tapestries.When first excavated, the burial was thought to be that of a Viking Age chieftain, but it soon became apparent that it was lacking the weapons and other artefacts common in male graves, whilst it abounded in everyday objects such as kitchen utensils, which are normally associated with females. The discovery of two human skeletons instead of one also came as a surprise.6 Further studies proved that the burial was a double female inhumation and this led to it being labelled “unique”. There has been much speculation about who was buried in the mound and about which one of the two skeletons was the most important figure.Relevant Keywords:Nordic Vikings Medieval Culture Viking Age QueensOseberg burialQueen Åsa or of Queen AlvhildSagaIron Age Germanic societiesRunestonespre-Christian customsIron Age GermanicThe shipThe human remainsThe grave goodsThe tapestriesThe animal sacrificesEvaluation of the richness of the Oseberg burialScandinavian Iron Age and Viking Age female high status burialsThree possible sorceress burials from Birkacontaining a double female inhumationSnorri Sturluson

Traditions in German-Speaking Mathematics Education Research (ICME-13 Monographs)

by Hans Niels Jahnke

This open access book shares revealing insights into the development of mathematics education research in Germany from 1976 (ICME 3 in Karlsruhe) to 2016 (ICME 13 in Hamburg). How did mathematics education research evolve in the course of these four decades? Which ideas and people were most influential, and how did German research interact with the international community?These questions are answered by scholars from a range of fields and in ten thematic sections: (1) a short survey of the development of educational research on mathematics in German speaking countries (2) subject-matter didactics, (3) design science and design research, (4) modelling, (5) mathematics and Bildung 1810 to 1850, (6) Allgemeinbildung, Mathematical Literacy, and Competence Orientation (7) theory traditions, (8) classroom studies, (9) educational research and (10) large-scale studies. During the time span presented here, profound changes took place in German-speaking mathematics education research. Besides the traditional fields of activity like subject-matter didactics or design science, completely new areas also emerged, which are characterized by various empirical approaches and a closer connection to psychology, sociology, epistemology and general education research. Each chapter presents a respective area of mathematics education in Germany and analyzes its relevance for the development of the research community, not only with regard to research findings and methods but also in terms of interaction with the educational system. One of the central aspects in all chapters concerns the constant efforts to find common ground between mathematics and education. In addition, readers can benefit from this analysis by comparing the development shown here with the mathematical education research situation in their own country.

And this is for good reason. After its founding sometime in the 10th century BCE, Sparta soon rose to be one of the most powerful city-states in not only the Greek but the entire ancient world. Perhaps the most significant achievement in all of Spartan history, though, was their defeat of the Athenians in the Peloponnesian War. This conflict, which lasted roughly 30 years, put the two greatest Greek city-states of the time, Athens and Sparta, up against one another, and the result, a Spartan victory, helped to reshape the entire ancient world. It ushered in a period of Spartan hegemony which was radically different than when the Athenians sat atop the Greek world. Some of the topics covered in part 1 of this book include:Who Were the SpartansThe Growth of Spartan Power: The Messenian WarsA Growing Rivalry with Athens: The Greco-Persian WarsVictory over Athens: The Birth of the Spartan EmpireSpartan Hegemony, the Corinthian War, and Sparta’s DeclineSpartan Government, Military, and SocietyAnd much, much more!Some of the topics covered in part 2 of this book include:On the Eve of WarThe Ionian RevoltDarius I Marches on Greece: The Battle of MarathonThe Interwar Years: Greece and Persia Prepare to Meet AgainThe Invasion of Xerxes Part 1: The Battles of Thermopylae and ArtemisiumThe Invasion of Xerxes Part 2: The Battles of Salamis and PlataeaThe Delian League WarsThe Aftermath of the WarThe Greek MilitaryThe Persian MilitaryAnd much, much more!Some of the topics covered in part 3 of this book include:Leading up to The Battle of ThermopylaeThe Main Characters of the Battle of ThermopylaeGreece and Persia Prepare for BattleThe Battle of Thermopylae: Seven Days to Last the Test of TimeMeanwhile, at ArtemisiumAfter the Battle of ThermopylaeThe Greek and Persian ArmiesAnd much, much more!Some of the topics covered in part 4 of this book include:Understanding PeloponneseThe Peloponnesian and Delian LeaguesRising Tensions Between Athens and Sparta: The First Peloponnesian War to the Thirty Years’ PeaceThe Archidamian War to the Peace of NiciasThe Attack of Syracuse Brings More WarThe Ionian War and the Fall of AthensFighting in an Ancient Greek ArmyThe War’s Impact on Greek CulturePhilosophy During War: SocratesAnd much, much more!So if you want to learn more about the history of Sparta, click the "add to cart" button!

Socio-Environmental Dynamics along the Historical Silk Road

by Liang Emlyn Yang

This open access book discusses socio-environmental interactions in the middle to late Holocene, covering specific areas along the ancient Silk Road regions. Over twenty chapters provide insight into this topic from various disciplinary angles and perspectives, ranging from archaeology, paleoclimatology, antiquity, historical geography, agriculture, carving art and literacy. The Silk Road is a modern concept for an ancient network of trade routes that for centuries facilitated and intensified processes of cultural interaction and goods exchange between West China, Central Asia, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean. Coherent patterns and synchronous events in history suggest possible links between social upheaval, resource utilization and climate or environment forces along the Silk Road and in a broader area. Post-graduates in studying will benefit from this work, as well as it will stimulate young researchers to further explore the role played by the environment in long-term socio-cultural changes.

Molly's Memoir

by Deanna Edens

“Mr. Minion pushed open the door of the cabin and immediately froze when he heard the shrilling sound of an infant crying. He knew, for sure, that when he’d left out this morning there weren’t any babies living with him, and as far as he could recollect, he wasn’t expecting none either.”

Molly’s Memoir is a journey through the life and times of a woman who is raised by a Seneca Indian after she is abandoned on the porch of a log cabin in the hills of West Virginia. Growing up in the isolated Monongahela Mountains, she learns about love, faith, and of the craft of healing with medicinal herbs.

The background of these stories begins in 1905 when West Virginia was wild and wooly, and continues to the later half of the 20th century, when a journalism student, who works at the Springfield Senior Care Facility, is recruited by two gray-haired, knee-high wearing women to inscribe Molly’s tales.

Stories from the past, and from when the memoir is written in 1990, are intertwined as the most memorable events of a remarkable life, are revealed with a humor and a gentle touch.

Molly’s Memoir offers a fascinating picture of a strong Native American woman, medicinal healing, historical events, biases, and the significance of family ties – even when you aren’t blood kin.

by Captivating History

His tactics and strategies were so grounded that it has served as the basis for many major warfare campaigns and maneuvers, both during his lifetime as well as after his demise. Even France’s sworn enemy for most of the medieval era, the British, acknowledged his ingenuity despite his ultimate defeat at the hands of the British army at the end of life.In this book, we will take an interesting journey through the annals of history to inspect the Napoleonic Wars: why they started in the first place, a glimpse into the life of the legendary commander Napoleon Bonaparte, the course of events and some of the major players on the board, and the stories of the last glimmer of France’s military greatness. While the French Army did play a crucial role in both World Wars, they pale in comparison to the army of France, which was led by one of the most brilliant military minds in history, during the country’s last great military campaign against its greatest rival, Britain. In this captivating book on the Napoleonic Wars and the French Revolution, we will examine Napoleon’s role in the war not only as a military genius but also as a politician, ruler, and social reformer, and perhaps uncover some of the more dubious aspects of the legend that is Napoleon Bonaparte.  In The Napoleonic Wars: A Captivating Guide to the Conflicts That Began Between the United Kingdom and France During the Rule of Napoleon Bonaparte and How They Stemmed from the French Revolution, you will discover topics such asThe French Revolution and Post-Revolution FranceThe French Revolutionary Wars: A Divided EuropeThe Political Rise of Napoleon BonaparteThe Rise of Bonapartism: An Alternative Monarchy Readying for the Napoleonic WarsThe Beginning of the Napoleonic WarsThe Napoleonic Wars, Part 1The Napoleonic Wars, Part 2The French Revolutionary Wars and Napoleonic Wars from a British Socio-Political PerspectiveWhat Led to the Fall of NapoleonAnd much, much more!So if you want to learn more about the Napoleonic Wars, scroll up and click the "add to cart" button!

America’s Gun Nightmare 2019: Let Us Not Talk Falsely Now, the Hour is Getting Late

by Dave Masko

America’s Gun Nightmare 2019, by Dave Masko. The buck stops with Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric when it comes to “America’s Gun Nightmare” of mass shootings; including the back-to-back gun violence horror that killed at least 30 people in Texas and Ohio during the first weekend of August 2019. This special “new journalism” report features essays that spotlight the Who, What, When, Where, How and Why of connecting the dots to Trump’s spewing of daily racism and hatred. Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke, who represented El Paso, Texas, as a congressman, pointed to Trump for his inflammatory rhetoric and encouraging racism. “Someone who describes Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals, who has sought to ball all – all Muslims, all people of one religion – from traveling to the United States or who calls Nazis and white supremacists very fine people – he doesn’t just tolerate, he encourages the kind of open racism and the violence that necessarily follow that we saw here.” The mass shooting in El Paso also promoted former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro to assert how “it’s so unfortunate that not only our president, but his administration can’t rise up to the challenge of leadership in these times.” While most Americans agree that Trump is impotent as a president and leader, it’s Trump’s white supremacy tone, to fan the flames of bigotry, hate and division in America since becoming Russia’s choice for president must result in Trump’s impeachment. “Trump’s political strategy is to always ensure that love and respect for human beings is conspicuously absent,” said 84-year-old retired historian Betty Kaliche of Eugene, Oregon, during a post-mass shooting interview Aug. 4, 2019. “What we learn from Trump and Adolf is they always told big lies in their rise to power. Just as Hitler and the Nazis were able to profit politically from racism taunts to insight this gun violence epidemic in America today in 2019, so too does Trump follow Hitler’s racism playbook,” added the senior with hands shaking and tears in her tired eyes. “The lesson of ‘America’s Mass Shooting Gun Nightmare today in 2019’ is Trump’s power is linked to this permission of this fake president to use hate words and actions against immigrants, ethnic minorities and especially women like me who protest regularly to ‘Impeach Trump’ and save our democracy.” Her thesis or argument is today’s mass shooting epidemic is linked to Trump giving other haters permission to say and do horrible things like these daily mass shootings committed by angry young white men spewing Trump’s words of racist hate. However racist Trump and Republicans sound and act, the reality is America was built on the backs of good immigrants with a deep-seated notion that all people are free and equal in America.

Adolf Hitler: A Captivating Guide to the Life of the Führer of Nazi Germany

by Captivating History

Explore the Rise of Adolf HitlerFree History BONUS Inside!Was Hitler, as Ian Kershaw asked, a natural consequence of German history, or an aberration? Not that Hitler had been in hiding, waiting to attack. The Führer had actually been following an aggressive and savage foreign policy for almost ten years, and been named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1938.This is not a book about World War II, but about the man, Adolf Hitler, one of the faces and names that still arouse the strongest feelings—repulsion, resentment, and even fanaticism—but one who also had a childhood and a youth, a father and a mother, and above all, a time when he was born guiltless, like any other human being. It is the road to madness—beginning that day in August of 1934 when he took over absolute power and ordered allegiance and loyalty to him alone—that this book is about. Some of the topics covered in this book include:Hitler's OriginsHis InceptionThe anti-Semitic capital of EuropeMunich/li>First World WarHitler's AscensionMein KampfHis DownfallThe remains of Adolf HitlerAnd a Great Deal More that You don't Want to Miss out on!Scroll to the top and download the book for instant access!

The Etruscans: A Captivating Guide to the Etruscan Civilization of Ancient Italy That Preceded the Roman Republic

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Etruscans, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!The importance of the Etruscans can be traced back to Rome though. The Roman Republic, and later the Roman Empire, was an unusual conqueror because it would absorb and assimilate elements of the cultures it dominated. A standing practice was to allow the defeated to continue practicing their culture and religion so long as they paid their taxes on time. Such a procedure was part of why Christianity would seep into the Roman Empire around the 1st century CE, for example. For the Etruscans, this meant they influenced aspects of Roman civilization, one of the most powerful cultures in the history of the Western world.The word “Rome” is Etruscan in origin as are the names of its mythological founders “Remus” and “Romulus.” Several of the Roman creation myths centered on branches of the Etruscans breaking off to found Rome, and Rome itself used to be a part of Etruscan civilization before it broke away and started to develop its own society. When the Etruscans were absorbed, elements of their culture, language, and religion would seep into Roman practice. Before their assimilation, the Etruscans gifted Rome with much of its political science and technology. Through the Etruscans, the Romans developed monarchy, walls, drainage systems, and the powerful forum. The Etruscans shouldn’t only be studied as the influencer of Rome, but it is the connection through which most individuals have heard of their illustrious civilization. Other interesting developments of the Etruscans were their flamboyant fashion, complex political structure, urban planning, and fatalistic religion. As the reader of this volume, check and see where the Etruscans sound similar to the Romans but also interpret what made the Etruscans unique, what rings of assimilation of other cultures like the Greeks, and determine whether it was possible for the Etruscans to avoid their fate against the Romans during the 1st century BCE. In The Etruscans: A Captivating Guide to the Etruscan Civilization of Ancient Italy That Preceded the Roman Republic, you will discover topics such asPolitics, Government, and Social StructureHow an Individual LivedThe Origin of the EtruscansThe Etruscan Orientation, c. 600-400 BCEThe Roman Conquest, c. 400-20 BCEMythology and ReligionArt and MusicThe Etruscan Language and WritingArchitectureSurviving Text and LiteratureAnd much, much more!So if you want to learn more about the Etruscans, scroll up and click the "add to cart" button!
