History of Greece: History of Greece: From the Cradle of Western Civilization to Myths, Legends, Democracy and Modern Day Greek History

by Nicole James

Read this for free with your Kindle Unlimited MembershipGreece is a colorful country and has always been the target of many tourists looking to have a relaxing time. However, what many people do not seem to know is that Greece also packs a rich history – all lying beneath the beautiful landscapes and beaches. Its history starts thousands of years before the Christian calendar was used – and each moment represents a cultural artifact that enriched more than a single country. Greece went through many wars – big and small. Some were fought because certain conquerors had their eyes on the land – whereas others were supposed to serve as means of provoking a change in the country (e.g. the civil wars). However, while it did not emerge unscathed from every war, Greece still managed to rec...

Voices of the Holocaust: Survivors of the Holocaust Share Their Stories

by Stephen McGrann

When the Allies emerged victorious at the end of WWII, the world was stunned to learn of what was described by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill as "... a crime without a name."Eventually the industrialised and wholesale murder of millions of European Jews would be assigned a name, the Holocaust.Six million people lost their lives in concentration camps scattered all over Germany and eastern Europe.To this day people who were born years after its happening are still baffled as to how such a thing could have occurred at all.How did a nation renowned over the world for its culture, artistic genius, scientific advancement, and economic prowess so quickly and so willingly allow itself to be consumed by madness?The Holocaust was not some freak occurrence that occurred in ancient history,...

The Innovator Versus the Collective

by Brian Phillips

Why do some cultures abound with innovation and progress? Why do some industries amaze us with their continual innovation, while others seem frozen in time? Why will we stand in line—sometime for days—for the latest iPhone or PlayStation, but demand Congressional hearings if we must wait in line for gasoline?The answers to these questions go beyond a particular culture or even a particular industry. Fundamentally, the answers go to the core of all human relations and interactions. The social and political policies that we advocate and support today will determine the innovation and progress (or lack thereof) that we experience tomorrow. If we do not understand and enact the social/political cause of innovation and progress, we cannot expect to enjoy the effect.It is said that those who...

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...

To "Paradise" and Back

by Charles Sawikin

Incredible memoir of Chaim Sawikin, a sixteen-year-old Jewish boy who was separated from his family at the start of World War II and then survived in the Soviet labor camp system. As he confronts every life-threatening situation, he draws upon his instincts and resourcefulness, while trying to retain the essential humanity instilled by his parents and his socialist upbringing. With almost every incident turning upon a stroke of luck, Chaim, raised an atheist, begins to see the world as unhinged, devoid of pattern or justice. But the idea that all his and others' suffering was random, so hard to accept, brings him around to deeper thoughts about the role of fate or God in the world. Finally he looks back on these times with no answers, only more questions....

A Survivor Remembers the Holocaust: The Amazing True Story of Leon Sperling

by Marc Garrett

Disclaimer. This is not a book, but rather a 10 page narrative, told to me by a very special man, of perhaps the most riveting, emotional, and courageous account of escaping certain death from the hands of a highly civilized and advanced race of people inexhaustibly determined to exterminate him, 14 year old boy, and his entire race. It is placed here at the Amazon minimum which I wish was zero, simply to tell his story, and remind future generations of the humanity and inhumanity we as a people are capable of, and the hope that each day, we choose the former. Please download and read, and if it doesn't leave you a better person, a changed person, with a need to share it with a loved one, please simply hit refund....

Mesopotamian Mythology: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Near Eastern Myths

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 ...

Chinatown No More: Taiwan Immigrants in Contemporary New York (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)

by Hsiang-Shui Chen

By focusing on the social and cultural life of post-1965 Taiwan immigrants in Queens, New York, this book shifts Chinese American studies from ethnic enclaves to the diverse multiethnic neighborhoods of Flushing and Elmhurst. As Hsiang-shui Chen documents, the political dynamics of these settlements are entirely different from the traditional closed Chinese communities; the immigrants in Queens think of themselves as living in "worldtown," not in a second Chinatown. Drawing on interviews with members of a hundred households, Chen brings out telling aspects of demography, immigration experience, family life, and gender roles, and then turns to vivid, humanistic portraits of three families. Chen also describes the organizational life of the Chinese in Queens with a lively account of the powe...

A History of Male Psychological Disorders in Britain, 1945-1980 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Alison Haggett

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Statistically, women appear to suffer more frequently from depressive and anxiety disorders, featuring more regularly in primary care figures for consultations, diagnoses and prescriptions for psychotropic medication. This has been consistently so throughout the post-war period with current figures suggesting that women are approximately twice more likely to suffer from affective disorders than men. However, this book suggests that the statistical landscape reveals only part of the story. Currently, 75 per cent of suicides are among men, and this trend can also be traced back historically to data that suggests this has been the case since the beginning of the twentieth-century. This book suggests that male psychological illness was in fact no ...
