Through history civilizations rose and fell, dependent on nature, and they popped up independently in a handful of different places around the world.

The ancient land of Elam was in many ways the cradle of civilization, and its capital, Susa, is one of the oldest cities in the world.

Washington Orders Impeachment: Donald Trump Cannot Carry Out Duties of the President

Washington Orders Impeachment, by Dave Masko. The first president of the United States would never, ever, condone the odious actions and words of the infamous New York City conman known as “the Donald,” or Donald Trump. In fact, this is a “crucial moment” in American history, said President George Washington (*pictured on the cover of this special “new journalism” report) who, unlike always lying Trump, said “I can’t tell a lie.” In fact, President Washington was morally opposed to Trump profanity and lies because this “Founding Father” distained anyone who was not truthful. In fact, President Washington viewed lying (*that Trump does daily with always lying media and tweet statements) as a “deal-breaker,” while President Washington is legend for firing, remov...

Punishing the Criminal Corpse, 1700-1840: Aggravated Forms of the Death Penalty in England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Peter King

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book analyses the different types of post-execution punishments and other aggravated execution practices, the reasons why they were advocated, and the decision, enshrined in the Murder Act of 1752, to make two post-execution punishments, dissection and gibbeting, an integral part of sentences for murder. It traces the origins of the Act, and then explores the ways in which Act was actually put into practice. After identifying the dominance of penal dissection throughout the period, it looks at the abandonment of burning at the stake in the 1790s, the rapid decline of hanging in chains just after 1800, and the final abandonment of both dissection and gibbeting in 1832 and 1834. It concludes that the Act, by creating differentiation in...

Spanish American War: A History From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Spanish-American War
“A splendid little war “- that’s how one contemporary observer described the Spanish-American War, a war that is arguably one of the most important wars ever fought. The duration was short and the victory decisive, thus little and splendid, the latter, at least, from the victor’s point of view. The impacts of the war, however, were anything but little. In fact, the aftermath of the Spanish-American War is still affecting global affairs today. The dominant superpowers of 1898 watched as a new player on the international scene, the United States, shifted its ideology from isolationism to expansionism, and emerged as a force to reckoned with, a true superpower.

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes ancient accounts of Byblos*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsOf all the peoples of the ancient Near East, the Phoenicians are among the most recognizable but also perhaps the least understood.

However, despite the fact there was never a “Phoenician Empire,” the Phoenicians proved to be more prolific in their exploration and colonization than any other peoples in world history until the Spanish during the Age of Discovery. Byblos, known today as Jubayl, has been kno...

20 Unsolved Mysteries of Japan

by Tristan Shaw

In "20 Unsolved Mysteries of Japan," author Tristan Shaw explores some of the most bizarre and intriguing mysteries ever to have happened in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Among the cases included in this book are:

The Disappearance of Shinya Matsuoka
In 2002, North Korea admitted that it used secret agents to abduct Japanese citizens from Japan and Europe during the 1970s and 1980s. While the Japanese government only recognizes 17 missing people as having been kidnapped by North Korean spies, others believe the real number of victims might be in the hundreds. Could Shinya Matsuoka, a 4-year-old boy who vanished from Tokushima Prefecture without a trace in 1989, be one of the uncounted victims?

Executing Magic in the Modern Era: Criminal Bodies and the Gallows in Popular Medicine (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Owen Davies

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licenseThis book explores the magical and medical history of executions from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century by looking at the afterlife potency of criminal corpses, the healing activities of the executioner, and the magic of the gallows site. The use of corpses in medicine and magic has been recorded back into antiquity. The lacerated bodies of Roman gladiators were used as a source of curative blood, for instance. In early modern Europe, a great trade opened up in ancient Egyptian mummies and the fat of executed criminals, plundered as medicinal cure-alls.

Investigating the Body in the Victorian Asylum: Doctors, Patients, and Practices (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Jennifer Wallis

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book explores how the body was investigated in the late nineteenth-century asylum in Britain. As more and more Victorian asylum doctors looked to the bodily fabric to reveal the ‘truth’ of mental disease, a whole host of techniques and technologies were brought to bear upon the patient's body. These practices encompassed the clinical and the pathological, from testing the patient's reflexes to dissecting the brain. Investigating the Body in the Victorian Asylum takes a unique approach to the topic, conducting a chapter-by-chapter dissection of the body. It considers how asylum doctors viewed and investigated the skin, muscles, bones, brain, and bodily fluids. The book demonstrates the importance of the body in nineteenth-century ...
