The Anschluss of the Sudeten Regions and the Subjugation of Czechia

by Gerd Schultze-Rhonhof

Every day recently pundits in the media compare Putin’s “invasion of Ukraine” to Hitler’s “invasion of Czechoslovakia.” They do so obviously on the assumption that people today well know what took place in Czechoslovakia seventy-six years ago. It is only thus that the comparison might help them to understand what is taking place in Ukraine today. But is this assumption correct? I doubt that it is and have therefore undertaken to make available free online an abbreviated version of Gerd Schultze-Rhonhof’s detailed account of the events leading up to Germany’s Anschluss of the Sudeten Regions in 1938. This account is found in pages 165-249 of his book: 1939 – The War That Had Many Fathers: the Long Run-Up to the Second World War, available online at Lulu. In this abbreviate...

50 Core American Documents: Required Reading for Students, Teachers, and Citizens

by Christopher Burkett

The Ashbrook Center’s 50 Core American Documents is meant to introduce
readers to America’s story as it has unfolded from the American Founding
into the Twentieth Century. Many of the documents emphasize America’s
uniqueness and contributions to the world, but they also present different
views on some of the major issues and disputes in American history and government,
especially on the meaning of liberty, the injustice of slavery, and the
demands of progress. Taken as such, the documents reveal a kind of political
dialogue to readers, an ongoing and profoundly consequential conversation
about how Americans have agreed and often disagreed on the meaning of
freedom and self-government. 50 Core American Documents invites teachers

by Dominik Bonatz

This book, consisting of 12 contributions, unites the most recent results from archaeological research in the Upper Mesopotamian piedmont.

In the Shadows: Conspiracy

by R Chamberlain

Conspiracy Theories raise eyebrows and are often assumed to be the result of paranoia. This book reviews the background, events, and people involved in 22 historical assassinations - all of which involved high profile individuals (political, religious, or cultural). The evidence (as well as the 'unanswered questions') in these cases reveals that fully half of them are either very highly likely to have resulted from a conspiracy, or were proven in a court of law to have been the result of a conspiracy.
The cases chosen span more than 2,000 years, and come from America, Europe and Asia.
This book shows that, without question, asking the question "Was it a conspiracy or a lone gunman?" is not only a perfectly valid question, it often reveals that the available information makes ...

by Helga Stipa Madland

I start with when I was born, then there was a World War, and then I went to Norman.--Klodnitz, in Upper Silesia, now a part of Poland, was my birth place; when everything collapsed in 1945 at the end of WWII, my family and I became refugees. We trekked across Germany, to the west, and eventually settled in a small village and then another one. Next was Canada, then the United States, Missouri; eventually we settled in Idaho, where my Father, who was a forester, found a job. I did not stop there! I was married and continued my merry journey, California, back to three cities in Idaho, and later Seattle, WA where I earned a Ph.D. My children were grown by then, I was alone and ready to find a position.

Traditional British Pub Games and Activities: What Us Brits Got Up To In The Pub

by Gary McKraken

Traditional British Pub Games and Activities: What Us Brits Got Up To In The Pub

A nostalgic retrospective of the English pub in simpler times including some games you may have heard of and some you may not.

In days gone by, the good old English pub was a much different beast than it is today. A wide variety of pub-based games were played and inter-pub competition was very popular. However with the passing of time and the advent of the internet the traditional pub games scene is on the wane.

When I was discovering pubs as a teenager in the mid to late 1980s the pub game scene was buzzing. I miss those times so in an attempt to keep the memory alive and introduce you to the old pub games scene I have written this book as a sort of semi-autobiographi...
