by Natalia Richards

The day before her death, Anne Boleyn remembers a journey that changed her life. She recalls how, as a young girl, she used her wits to secure a place at the prestigious Court of Margaret of Austria, where she soon realised that a woman had to be strong to survive the treachery of Court politics.

Fungal Disease in Britain and the United States 1850-2000: Mycoses and Modernity (Science, Technology and Medicine in Modern History)

by A. Homei and M. Worboys

This book is open access under a CC BY license. The grand narrative of twentieth-century medicine is the conquering of acute infectious diseases and the rise in chronic, degenerative diseases. The history of fungal infections does not fit this picture; indeed, it runs against it - this book charts the path of fungal infections from the mid nineteenth century to the dawn of the twenty-first century, both in Britain and the United States. It examines how fungal infections became more prevalent and serious over the century, a rise that was linked to the increased incidence of chronic diseases and to social, technological and medical 'progress'. In 1900, conditions such as ringworm, athlete's foot and thrush were minor, external and mostly chronic conditions  irritating, but mostly self-limit...

by Sonita Zainal and David Coombes

Everybody’s Friend

by Raghu Karnad and Clara Womersley

Raghu Karnad's "Everybody's Friend" is a poignant pilgrimage to the military grave of a great-uncle, fallen defending the obsolescent Raj against the oncoming army of imperial Japan. The most brutal fighting unfolded on the unforgiving northeast Indian border with Burma, and Karnad takes himself and the reader deep into Nagaland to find the war graves of Imphal. There he broods without heavy reproach but with stoical sorrow on the marginalisation of memory offered to Indian troops who, in the authorised epic of Indian independence, fought on the "wrong" side for their imperial masters while the much thinner ranks of the Indian National Army, Subhash Chandra Bose's fighters, have been accorded the rites and respects of freedom fighters

War and Cold War

by Jack R. Williams

The book is about a military family during WWII through the Cold War. Their background and history touches the highlights of WWII, then winnows its history down to that of the Cold War and an over-flight. One recognizes and develops a metaphor with the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, a lyrical ballad or poem that captures both the exaltation and the misery of their lives. Charlie joined the Air Force in 1941 and later married Charlotte Lee. Jackson, her brother, joined the Navy in 1947. Both became officer pilots and flew intelligence aircraft during the Cold War, and both became intelligence officers. Their ages made one a veteran of both wars while the other itched to be a veteran of WWII but had missed it. When Jackson joins a China over-flight, he causes a mortal crash that eventually dri...

Queen Of People’s Hearts: The Life And Mission Of Diana, Princess Of Wales

by Michael W. Simmons

The tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales, triggered an unprecedented worldwide outpouring of grief from the public that adored her ever since she was first identified as the girlfriend of the Prince of Wales in 1981. Ever since August 31, 1997, people have struggled to account for the depth of the impact she seemed to have on people’s hearts and minds. First the little girl who felt that she had disappointed her family by not being a boy, then the schoolgirl who preferred pranks to studying, then the shy kindergarten teacher who won the heart of Prince Charles, Diana’s anonymity ended forever only a few weeks after she began dating the heir to the British throne. Over the next sixteen years, she lived her life in the public eye—a smiling, dutiful royal wife and mother, who eventu...

The Ark Of The Covenant: New Revealing Discoveries

by Cheryl Leonard

The Ark of the Covenant is an ornate, sacred chest built by the Israelites, with specifications given to them according to God. It was God’s pledge that he would dwell with them and provide guidance for them through this ancient treasure. The mystique of The Ark of the Covenant is one of the world’s most mysterious and intriquing, unsolved mysteries. It was constructed approximately 3000 years ago, and when King Solomon’s Temple was captured and destroyed in 586 B.C, it disappeared forever. Scholars and archaeologists have steadfastly debated whether this artifact was captured, hidden, or destroyed. Many wonders have been attributed to The Ark in The Bible. This book presents the history and background of The Ark, its significance and power, and discusses the evidence and research,...

What You Don't Know About North Korea Could Fill A Book

For a country that is in the news on a daily basis, North Korea remains a mystery to much of the Western world. Ask any random Joe on the street what he knows about the country and the only answer you'll likely get is that “it's bad.”Presented here are several largely unknown facts that cut against the exaggerated claims and outright falsehoods leveled against North Korea in the drive to demonize the country into an “acceptable target” for aggression and war.

Communist Perspectives on North Korea

by Ricardo Santiago

**Ricardo Santiago's "Socialism and Struggle: Selected Works" (ASIN: B00DFLUDTO) contains the contents of this and dozens of other works, combined and offered at a greatly discounted price.**

The question of Korea comes up often in the political life of revolutionaries.

The northern part of the peninsula is pointed to by right-wingers and many left-wingers as a totalitarian hellhole that stands in stark contrast to the “democratic” and prosperous south. Still a handful of others claiming to be "anti-revisionist communists" hold up north Korea as a shining example of socialism. Little analysis or facts are put forward by any of the sides involved to defend their arguments.

It is of vital importance for us to understand the situation in Korea and it...
