Allegories of America: Narratives, Metaphysics, Politics (Contestations)

by Frederick M. Dolan

Dolan explores the metaphysics of American-ness and stops along the way to reflect on John Winthrop, the Constitution, 1950s behavioralist social science, James Merrill, and William Burroughs....

Children of the Magi: A Sacred History of the Kurds and the Persians

by Christopher Crossan

Few societies on earth are as privileged as the Kurds and Persians. Unlike other nations and continents, the people living in Mesopotamia, the Zagros mountains, and Persia have witnessed some of the key historical events affecting all humanity which were recorded in the sacred writings of the Jews. These include the dispersion of Noah’s grandchildren, the building of the tower of Babel, the deportation of the Jews, the arrival of the prophet Daniel, the rise of Queen Esther, the commissioning of Ezra the high priest, and the visit of the Magi to Bethlehem. Four Medo-Persian kings - Darius, Cyrus, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes - are mentioned in these writings. Furthermore, the primeval events of history took place in Mesopotamia, including the creation of Adam and Eve, the garden of Eden, the f...

NEW WORLD GENESIS: Adam and Eve: A Story of Our Beginning with Ancient Astronauts relating to Adam and Eve

by James E. Hansen

Brow-raising details abound in this expansive and shocking new interpretation of the biblical Genesis story. This dialogue-filled narrative includes details hitherto unknown to the average reader concerning not only ‘God’ and his ‘angels’ but of Adam and Eve, along with the first 10 generations. The reconstructed story is based on English translations (those in the public domain) of the following ancient texts (some banned by the Catholic church): Book of Adam and Eve; Book of the Life of Adam and Eve; Apocalypse of Moses; Book of Enoch; Book of Jubilees; The Cave of Treasures; Book of Jasher; The Bible; The Koran; and miscellaneous texts from the ancient Sumerians, Egyptians, Akkadians, Chaldeans, Babylonians, Assyrians, Canaanites, and others, even ancient Native Americans.

War Pilot Memoirs: A Mirror on 1939 (War Pilots Book 1)

by J. Anomdeplume

The historian in each of us craves such stories: young Frenchman in a 1938 archery contest against our “Fritz”; real life cloak-and-dagger in Damascus; the thoughts of a fighter pilot, ammunition depleted, as he ducked under the wing of a Flying Fortress. As if listening to war stories from your grandfather or another veteran, turn these pages, dear Reader, with enthusiasm. It is a global odyssey, with an intriguing uneven flow as if notes scribbled into a journal, and it is cliffhanger nonfiction.

by Jesse Davisson

Digging into one’s family history can reveal unusual surprises. In my case, I recently discovered my great-grandfather, Jesse C. Davisson’s first-hand account of his 25-year military experience during an epic period in American history.Jesse was no angel when he first joined the Army in 1893 as an ordinary young man in Philadelphia. His diary follows his subsequent adventures––from learning to ride horse with the 7th Cavalry and befriending Indian Scouts to surviving ambushes and water-boarding prisoners––all while serving in the American Indian Wars, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection and World War I. A Soldier’s Diary 1893-1918: From Philadelphia to the Philippines, Crawfish Jesse Tells It Like It Was reveals the good and the bad in our human character. I...

Son of a Meddah

by NuFaShe

His parents had named him Sahl, meaning "easy," hoping that he would have a simple and happy life. Maybe if they had named him "difficult" it would actually have turned out that way. Born at the turn of the 20th century in the Ottoman Empire, Sahl had already experienced an earthquake, an assassination attempt on the sultan, the death of a family member, and his Empire's crushing defeat in the Balkans, which included a serious injury to his father, all before he was even a teenager. Hence, by the time World War I started, there wasn't really much Sahl hadn't been through. Until, of course, he finds who the Empire believes to be the root cause of all its problems and has sentenced to annihilation hiding in the back of his caravan.

Constructions of Cancer in Early Modern England: Ravenous Natures (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and Medicine)

by Alanna Skuse

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence. Cancer is perhaps the modern world's most feared disease. Yet, we know relatively little about this malady's history before the nineteenth century. This book provides the first in-depth examination of perceptions of cancerous disease in early modern England. Looking to drama, poetry and polemic as well as medical texts and personal accounts, it contends that early modern people possessed an understanding of cancer which remains recognizable to us today. Many of the ways in which medical practitioners and lay people imagined cancer – as a 'woman's disease' or a 'beast' inside the body – remain strikingly familiar, and they helped to make this disease a byword for treachery and cruelty in discussions of religion, culture and politics. Equal...

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...

Mongolian Empire: History for kids: A captivating guide to a remarkable Genghis Khan & the Mongol Empire

by Dinobibi Publishing

Most people believe the Mongolian Empire was a small tribe known for looting, robbing, and pillaging. The Mongols used to be little more than nomads prowling the harsh and often barren steppes of Mongolia, but this all changed when a great leader, Genghis Khan, took control. The Mongols were innovative and creative in everything they did beyond just warfare. They owed their successes to their military tactics and impressive art of war, which relied heavily on incredible horsemanship, archery, and other fighting skills. But they also created an immersive world full of ideas, inventions, and art.The Mongolian Empire was a state built by folks who knew how to keep up with the times. The Mongols put to use many ideas and technologies of the day and were very much capable of making these things...

by Mark Gery

Volume 2 of DEBACLE starts by offering the reader one of the only detailed presentations of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. Then comes the first Bush administration's concerted efforts to promote and organize a massive US military response to the invasion, irrespective of the wishes of several Arab states, many members of the United Nations, and most of the American public.

The key goals for the war are explained in detail, as well as the White Houses efforts to block or otherwise derail all moves toward a diplomatic solution to the crisis.

Outcasts of Empire: Japan's Rule on Taiwan's "Savage Border," 1874-1945 (Asia Pacific Modern Book 16)

Adopting micro- and macrohistorical perspectives, Paul D. Barclay argues that the interpreters, chiefs, and trading-post operators who mediated state-society relations on Taiwan’s “savage border” during successive Qing and Japanese regimes rose to prominence and faded to obscurity in concert with a series of “long nineteenth century” global transformations.   Superior firepower and large economic reserves ultimately enabled Japanese statesmen to discard mediators on the bor...
