Queen Elizabeth I: A biography of the virgin queen

by Lucy Wiltshire

Fiery, wilful and impassioned; Queen Elizabeth I was one of England’s most powerful queens. With her father’s strength and her mother’s charisma she proved to be an exceptional stateswoman, and knew how to play the game of diplomacy. In her long reign, she would artfully play countries off against each other, manipulating their leaders and outsmarting them all. She was wise; she was cautious and she was beautiful. She followed a careful foreign policy of flirtation, using her feminine wiles to negotiate marriage treaties, and not following through, all the while maintaining and prolonging their interest in an alliance with England.Elizabeth was essentially a peacemaker, and strove to provide stability and prosperity to England by doing her very best to avoid wars. With her favourite ...

A London War Child Crosses the Ocean (My Very Long Youth, Book 1)

by Lawrence Bohme

Book I of Lawrence's youthful adventures, 1942-56. Born mid-war in a southern suburb of London, to a German refugee from Berlin and his young English stenographer, the four-year old immigrates with his family to Western Canada, where he spends his next ten years among the forests of West Vancouuver.

AN OVERVIEW… Lawrence Bohme's whimsically told but scrupulously truthful story of his first 41 years - "not a word of it is invented except some of the names", he swears - is entitled "My Very Long Youth" because "due to forces beyond my control I only started growing up, or calming down, after that age". His erratic wanderings throughout the Western World in the four decades following the war in which Lawrence was born have been enough "without wasting a single word" to fill 15 ...

Celtic Mythology: A Concise Guide to the Gods, Sagas and Beliefs

by Hourly History

★ Celtic Mythology ★The gifted W.B. Yeats wrote of his own people “...even a newspaperman, if you entice him into a cemetery at midnight, will believe in phantoms, for everyone is a visionary if you scratch him deep enough.

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. That's when I ended up at the University of Oklahoma in 1981, and have been here ever...

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

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...

Memoirs of Louis XIV

by Duke of Saint-Simon

No library of Court documents could pretend to be representative which ignored the famous “Memoirs” of the Duc de Saint-Simon. They stand, by universal consent, at the head of French historical papers, and are the one great source from which all historians derive their insight into the closing years of the reign of the “Grand Monarch,” Louis XIV: whom the author shows to be anything but grand—and of the Regency. The opinion of the French critic, Sainte-Beuve, is fairly typical. “With the Memoirs of De Retz, it seemed that perfection had been attained, in interest, in movement, in moral analysis, in pictorial vivacity, and that there was no reason for expecting they could be surpassed. But the ‘Memoirs’ of Saint-Simon came; and they offer merits . . . which make them the mos...
