Alexander Hamilton: First Architect Of The American Government

by Michael W. Simmons

What did Alexander Hamilton ever do besides get shot in a duel by Aaron Burr? When it comes to the American government, the answer is: practically everything.

Born in the West Indies, Hamilton was the illegitimate child of a Scottish nobleman who lost a fortune in sugar plantations. Orphaned as a teenager, he came to America in search of an education, a home, and the war that would at last bring him fame and honor. As George Washington’s most trusted aide, Hamilton helped to win the American Revolution—but after the war, his enemies lost no time accusing him of trying to sell his country back to the British. He was the most powerful member of Washington’s presidential cabinet—so why did Adams and Jefferson hate him so much?

In this book, you will learn how...

A Short History of Spain

by Mary Platt Parmele

The history of Spain dates back to the Early Middle Ages. In 1516, Habsburg Spain unified a number of disparate predecessor kingdoms; its modern form of a constitutional monarchy was introduced in 1813, and the current democratic constitution dates to 1978. After the completion of the Reconquista, the kingdoms of Spain were united under Habsburg rule in 1516. At the same time, the Spanish Empire began to expand to the New World across the ocean, marking the beginning of the Golden Age of Spain, during which, from the early 1500s to the 1650s, Habsburg Spain was among the most powerful states in Europe.Written in an engaging style, Mary Parmele’s concise study A Short History of Spain introduces readers to the key themes that have shaped modern Spain....

Goin' Garf! (Memories of the Caribbean Island of San Andres)

by Lawrence Bohme

In 1975, London-born New York-bred adventurer Lawrence Bohme set up his crafts shop on the remote West Indian island of San Andres, a possession of Colombia. With the difference that its people are the English-speaking descendants of Jamaican slaves brought there by the British, before the island was ceded to what was then New Spain, in 1822. Lawrence evokes the islanders' unshakeably "Afro-Victorian" view of the world and themselves, their pungent and often graphic patois harkening back to pre-Industrial England as well as Africa, and their strange dream that the English will one day return to free them from the "panyas", that is, the "Spaniards", who for a century had already become Colombians... Here is the loving but unsentimental "guide book" which Lawrence wrote while living on this ...

The book of Daniel, the modern superpowers and WWII

-the Axis powers (WWII) and

Does it also contain the secret of the future superpowers - after USA? And even beyond that?

Peter The Great: Autocrat And Reformer

by Michael W. Simmons

As the third son of the legendary Tsar Alexis, Peter the Great was never supposed to rule. But when his older brother died, the ten-year-old boy was proclaimed tsar by a cheering multitude outside the walls of the Kremlin. His destiny seemed assured—until a bloody rebellion erupted, forcing him to watch as his family was impaled and torn limb from limb by a mob of furious soldiers.From that day forward, Peter was determined to tear down the Old Muscovy and usher in a new Russia—dragging his backwards, traditional nobles into the 18th century by their long, bushy beards when necessary. He became the first tsar to sail the ocean, and the first Romanov to visit Europe. Standing six foot, eight inches tall, Peter took Europe in his immense stride, while laboring as a common carpenter in or...

Queen Victoria: Icon Of An Era

by Michael W. Simmons

When we think of Queen Victoria, whose reign eclipsed that of every British king and queen before her, we imagine the Widow of Windsor, reclusive in her palace, draped in permanent mourning for her beloved husband, Albert, the Prince Consort, who died in 1861. But this book takes the reader on a journey that starts before her marriage, before she came to be seen as the static icon of the age that bears her name. From her isolated childhood at Kensington Palace, where her daily life was controlled by a man who plotted to one day seize power through her, Victoria emerged shortly after her 18th birthday as a fully-fledged Queen, a young woman who gloried in her newfound power and freedom. Over the next twenty years, she fell in love—twice, if the rumors are to be believed—bore nine childr...

To understand that, it’s necessary to remember that Greek mythology has been filtered and tempered by centuries of editors and zealots and fickle word of mouth.

Princess To Queen: The Early Years Of Queen Elizabeth II

Elizabeth II, at the age of 91, is the longest-reigning monarch ever to sit on the throne of England. Most people living today have no memory of a time when she was not Queen.
