Constructions of Cancer in Early Modern England: Ravenous Natures (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and...

by Alanna Skuse

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence. Cancer is perhaps the modern world's most feared disease. Yet, we know relatively little about this malady's history before the nineteenth century. This book provides the first in-depth examination of perceptions of cancerous disease in early modern England. Looking to drama, poetry and polemic as well as medical texts and personal accounts, it contends that early modern people possessed an understanding of cancer which remains recognizable to us today. Many of the ways in which medical practitioners and lay people imagined cancer – as a 'woman's disease' or a 'beast' inside the body – remain strikingly familiar, and they helped to make this disease a byword for treachery and cruelty in discussions of religion, culture and politics. Equal...

Timeline of Ancient History

by Susan Whitemore

Ancient History is the period bridging Pre-History and Antiquity. The Timeline begins with the advent of writing and the invention of the wheel, two technological innovations that will allow for increases in communication, construction, and warfare. The Pre-History age of hunting/gathering ends as settled villages form into city-states that form into great empires, and intellectual/technological/political progress gains a momentum that will propel the peoples of the world into the cultural flowering of Antiquity.

“If you are to prosper in this world of secrets and powers, you must understand many things that happened before your time. How else can we understand our own time, or predict what may come?”

Clear and concise, the Timeline of Ancient History provide...

Breezy

by George Gallagher

I hated England.It's cold, it's always overcast and raining, and it was just so dreary. Everything was so blank… The buildings, the people, it's all so plain and grey.So, no matter what my Mother may tell our relatives and everybody else she encounters, moving from sunny Los Angels to the heart of dreary old England was anything but a 'mutual family decision.' If anything in this situation were left to me, I'd be sitting on my ass in the lovely sun tanning up outside of my house back in America. In fact, it would be that way if it were left to anybody else in my family except for my Mother.As it is, this dream is crushed as I make my way through Kings Cross Station in Britain with my little brother, Sam, trying to find Platform 9¾. Obscure platform number? Yes. Why? Because it doesn't s...

The Vikings: Raiders, Explorers And Seafaring Warriors

by Lance Hightower

The world of the Vikings is larger than life, filled with sagas of warriors who made fighting a career, but there’s a lot more to Viking history than blood-letting and piracy. Their achievements, rich culture and craftsmanship contributed greatly to our world today, and their explorations helped make up the boundaries of nations.

The Vikings: Raiders, Explorers, and Seafaring Warriors by author Lance Hightower will give you a glimpse of the battles that raged for more than 300 years, sparked by the cultural and religious differences that were the trigger for warring with the Franks, England and Ireland, and for trade and exploration into the Muslim empire, the Byzantine Empire, as far as Russia, Spain and North America.

They came from Sweden, Norway and Denmark...

Mein Side of the Story: Key World War 2 Addresses of Adolf Hitler

by King, M and Adolf Hitler

*145 Pages / 100 Illustrations*
Our system of justice grants 'prima facie' murderers, rapists and serial killers the opportunity to speak, does it not? Indeed, convicted killers like Charles Manson, David ‘Son of Sam’ Berkowitz, Richard Speck, Jeffrey Dahmer and others have done televised interviews. Even the erroneous and dangerous ranting of Karl Marx is taught, no, glorified, in American Universities.

So, what is so gosh-darn dangerous about merely presenting the opinion of Hitler’s Germany? If that opinion is as evil and as fallacious as it is said to be, then why not present the full story, and then logically refute it? Truth is its own defense, so what is there to fear about simply hearing “the other side”? Do we really believe in “free speech” and ...

GLOBAL CATASTROPHIC RISKS: THREATS TO OUR CIVILIZATION

by C. CARL PEGELS

Certain catastrophic events only occur every few hundred years, and everyone assumes that the world will not be visited with another world wide catastrophic event because none has occurred during our and our parents' life times. Even our government and our representatives in that government never bring up the necessity of possibly building a defense against a world-wide disaster.This book addresses the issue of the necessity for building such a defensive structure. The first and major item is to build up national food reserves distributed all over the country so that they will be accessible when a catastrophic event occurs. Note that I state when it will occur, because it can and will occur anytime, perhaps tomorrow or 100 years from tomorrow. The important point to keep in mind is the fac...

Interview with Hitler: An Educational Parody

by King, M

206 Pages / 500 Illustrations
The following "interview", though obviously a fictional event, accurately portrays what the ghost of Adolf Hitler would say in his defense if he could be interviewed today. His "answers" to WCBC talk-show host Ogre Winfield’s questions are mostly based upon an extensive and careful reading of his writings and speeches from 1921-1945, as well as those of his inner circle and others who knew him and survived the war.

One is at liberty to reflexively dismiss the veracity or accuracy of Hitler's version of events if one so chooses. However, what cannot be disputed is this: Hitler's responses to Ogre’s questions truly represent what he would say if such an interview could take place. Indeed, some of Hitler's answers are direct quotes taken f...

It became a horrendous war of attrition, each side competing to kill as many of their foe as possible.

A History of Self-Harm in Britain: A Genealogy of Cutting and Overdosing (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Chris Millard

This book is open access under a CC BY license and is the first account of self-harming behaviour in its proper historical and political context. The rise of self-cutting and overdosing in the 20th century is linked to the sweeping changes in mental and physical health, and wider political context. The welfare state, social work, Second World War, closure of the asylums, even the legalization of suicide, are all implicated in the prominence of self harm in Britain. The rise of 'overdosing as a cry for help' is linked to the integration of mental and physical healthcare, the NHS, and the change in the law on suicide and attempted suicide. The shift from overdosing to self-cutting as the most prominent 'self-damaging' behaviour is also explained, linked to changes in hospital organization an...

A History of Male Psychological Disorders in Britain, 1945-1980 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Alison Haggett

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Statistically, women appear to suffer more frequently from depressive and anxiety disorders, featuring more regularly in primary care figures for consultations, diagnoses and prescriptions for psychotropic medication. This has been consistently so throughout the post-war period with current figures suggesting that women are approximately twice more likely to suffer from affective disorders than men. However, this book suggests that the statistical landscape reveals only part of the story. Currently, 75 per cent of suicides are among men, and this trend can also be traced back historically to data that suggests this has been the case since the beginning of the twentieth-century. This book suggests that male psychological illness was in fact no ...

by Frank Joseph

World War II Turning Points is an alternative history of mankind's most crucial military struggle. As such, it does not regurgitate the same, all-too-familiar versions of the past, consistently repeated by mainstream scholars since 1945. Instead, this unconventional revision is the result of newly-discovered and often neglected information about the sometimes obscure men, bizarre weapons, under-appreciated decisions, forgotten blunders and near misses that really determined the course and outcome of the Second World War.

The author, a U.S. Department of Defense feature writer, whose published articles have appeared in military magazines here and abroad, combines a lifetime of research and world travels to offer an unprecedented panorama of the 20th Century's pivotal...

She left from England in September of 1620, carrying 102 English Separatists to a new life, one that came with the freedom to practice their religious beliefs as they saw fit. These Pilgrims had the courage of their convictions. They had already potentially faced execution for practicing their beliefs and now they were willing to uproot their lives, their families, and their homes, to sign contracts of indentured servitude for them and their children - all to find what they called freedom in a foreign land.

The laureates might have been a trifle nonplussed to hear themselves collectively compared to one man, but Thomas Jefferson left his imprint on his state of Virginia; his young country, the United States; France where he served as ambassador; and the world, where his opposition to tyranny and his advocacy of freedom have inspired generations to believe that th...

During the Middle Ages, the nations of Europe forged new identities that moved them away from the lost glory of the Roman Empire into their own ethnicity. The experience of maturation was often clumsy and out of step, an evolutionary process that saw the nation's developing at their own pace as they struggled to replace the protection of Rome with their own home-grown strength. What the nations, once they were ready to be described in that manner, did have was the Roman Catholic Church, which defined itself as the spiritual protector of Christian believers. But the dutiful Christians of the Middle Ages who sought orthodoxy and for the most part obeyed the papal rules underwent a change when the Middle Ages ended.
