John Adams: A Captivating Guide to an American Founding Father Who Served as the Second President of the United States of America

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating life of John Adams, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!John Adams once wrote, “People and nations are forged in the fires of adversity.” That was very much Adams’ experience. Although he was often maligned, he didn’t deserve it. Having been born in the English colony of Massachusetts in 1735, he not only witnessed a new nation emerging from the shell of infancy, but he also participated in its growing pains. Adams was a man who was frequently asked to assume roles in which he had little experience, like that of a diplomat to France and England. In a sense, he was a part of the vanguard that the government had thrown into the fray. But why would the government choose him to represent their interests? Perhaps the main reason was that...

A call to Haiti's awakening, success and strategies for a better future

by Ernst Etienne

This book highlights in deep the incredible accomplishment of the Haitian nation, being the only ever slave revolution leading to fighting off slavery and attaining independence through bloodshed. The slaves of Haiti played a great role in this after many years under French brutality.In comparison to other Caribbean nations facing the same state of slavery, Haitian slaves were not allowed to trade internationally for more than 25 years until they agreed to pay huge debts to the French in 1827. Hence they actually had to repay their former ‘masters’ for the loss of the ‘masters’ ‘property.From a succinct yet enlightening journey through the history of Haiti’s land, to the series of events that earned the nation independence at last, this book is a manifesto declaring the glory a...

The Soviet Union, which had climbed to power from the shambles of the 1917 Revolution that saw communism overthrow the czar, and Germany, which had risen from the ashes of World War I’s Treaty of Versailles, certainly had a complicated history. Stalingrad was a battle between the Allies and the Axis Powers; it was a struggle between the Soviet Union and Germany for vic...

Color In Mind: The Golden The Black And The White In Islam

by r da costa vaughan

PREFACEIslam fathered color prejudice and racism. The Arabic Qur'an was the catalyst for the conception, the nurturing, and the religious tending of the ideas behind color racism. Subsequently these negative ideas were exported globally. This is the thesis of this book.The House of Islam, or dar al-Islam in Arabic, is no one particular location. It exists where anyone who has submitted to the Islamic belief system bows in prayer five times daily. Within these invisible temples, those of Islamic faith repeat the ritual statement of witness to their faith: "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."In addition to prayer rituals, Islamic practitioners annually must fast during the lunar month of Ramadan. They all are required to financially support their faith, and final...

The Oldest Vocation: Christian Motherhood in the Medieval West

by Clarissa W. Atkinson

According to an old story, a woman concealed her sex and ruled as pope for a few years in the ninth century. Pope Joan was not betrayed by a lover or discovered by an enemy; her downfall came when she went into labor during a papal procession through the streets of Rome. From the myth of Joan to the experiences of saints, nuns, and ordinary women, The Oldest Vocation brings to life both the richness and the troubling contradictions of Christian motherhood in medieval Europe.After tracing the roots of medieval ideologies of motherhood in early Christianity, Clarissa W. Atkinson reconstructs the physiological assumptions underlying medieval notions about women's bodies and reproduction; inherited from Greek science and popularized through the practice of midwifery, these assumptions helped s...

by Dale Coleman

On September 13, 1965, Tacoma Community College opened its doors to the public.

Emphatic (Soul Serenade Book 1)

by Kaylee Ryan

There comes a point in your life where you have to say enough is enough.

I wasted my college years on a guy who played with my head, played with my heart. I was blinded by the fairytale, the one that didn’t exist.

The day I gave up on the idea of happily ever after, my focus became me. Moving forward and establishing my career.

Until one day…

I didn’t expect him. My new boss, a six foot two, inked rock god. I believed I was working for the record label, I was wrong.

It’s impossible for me to keep my distance, believe me I’ve tried. He’s not who I expected him to be. He’s so much more he’s…Emphatic

Easter Island: The Mystical "Stone Giants"

by Cheryl Leonard

Easter Island is the world’s most isolated inhabited island, located in Chile,in the Southeastern Pacific Ocean. It is famous for its 887 mysterious megalith stone statues called Moai. The Polynesian settlers to the island began colonization from a limited resource base, and created an advanced society of religious and artistic culture.

Unfortunately, the flourishing society did not last,and the most common theory for the decline of this society was deforestation of the land, leading to war between the factions, famine, and ultimately the collapse of the society.
