Queen Victoria: The Queen Who Ruled An Entire Empire

by Patrick Auerbach

Queen Victoria was considered to be the longest reigning monarch of her time. There are different sides to her that no one knew about until she passed away and her journals were published for everyone to see.

The Thirteenth Century

by James Walsh

The object of the book is to interpret, in terms that will be readily intelligible to this generation, the life and concerns of the people of a century who, to the author's mind, have done more for human progress than those of any like period in human history. There are few whose eyes are now holden as they used to be, as to the surpassing place in the history of culture of the last three centuries of the Middle Ages. Personally the author is convinced, however, that only a beginning of proper appreciation has come as yet, and he feels that the solution of many problems that are vexing the modern world, especially in the social order, are to be found in these much misunderstood ages, and above all in that culmination of medieval progress the period from 1200 to 1300......

The Second Italian War of Independence: The History and Legacy of the Conflict that Led to Italy’s Unification

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsIn the 18th century, Italy was still divided into smaller states, but differently than during medieval times when the political entities were independent and were flourishing economic and cultural centers almost unrivaled in Europe. During the 18th century, all of them were submitted, in one way or another, to one of the greater hegemonic powers. This process of conquest and submission began during the early 16th century, when France was called on by the Duke Milan to intervene in his favor and from there never stopped. This was the geopolitical picture in Italy when the tumult of the French Revolution crossed the Alps, and the military campaigns of the legendary Napoleon Bonaparte would initiate a c...

The Price of Defeat: The History of British Operations to Transfer Personnel, Technology, and Equipment from Germany to Britain after World War II

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsAfter the last shots of World War II were fired and the process of rebuilding Germany and Europe began, the Western Allies and the Soviet Union each tried to obtain the services of the Third Reich's leading scientists, especially those involved in rocketry, missile technology, and aerospace research. Naturally, this was a delicate affair due to the fact many of the German scientists were not only active Nazis but had helped the Nazi war machine terrorize the world. At the same time, by the late war period, the Anglo-American Allies formed a clear picture of the Soviet state. Though forced to ally with the USSR's dictator, the West came to understand Communist Russia represented yet another hungry tot...

CREATION AND CARNAGE: Artistic Forebodings and Transformations in the Period of the Great War

by Clifford West

World War I was the opening volley of an eruption in Western civilization that arguably lasted a half century or more. It is no coincidence that it paralleled some of the West’s greatest transformation in cultural expression as well. While the Arts of the period underwent incredible upheavals, these dramatic changes can be seen as having begun prior to the tangible conflict that began in 1914. The collective disruption to European civilization that occurred at the advent of the First World War was paralleled and preceded by a symbolic fragmentation and dissolution in the visual arts and music of the period.In this concise overview, speculations regarding the connection between the pivotal conflict of modern times and the revolutionary creative expressions of the period are brought to awa...

The Conspiracy of Gianluigi Fieschi: or, Genoa in the Sixteenth Century

by Emanuele Celesia

The first impression of the general reader may be that this book treats of events so distant in time, and so different in moral scenery, from the political and social conditions in which we live as to afford little or no instruction to us. No history, except that of one’s own country, affords precise forms in which to mould the present; and what are called historical parallels do not really exist, since every series of political events has peculiar elements which make close analogies with any other series impossible. Those who quote events in the history of other times and peoples as containing precise instruction for present national action usually deceive their auditors all the more completely from being deceived themselves. It is only in the abundant matter of general principles that ...
