The Light in the Himalayas, Chronicles of Discovery

by Heather Cantrell - M.Litt. and M.G. Hawking

Discover the truth of a profound legend that has endured from the very dawn of civilization, a captivating revelation of the existence of a mysterious world hidden deep in the wilderness of the Great Himalayan Range.Scholars relate that the first mention of this fabled ‘Light in the Himalayas’ appears in the scriptures of the pre-Tibetan Zhang Zhung culture which arose some 4000 years ago on the remote Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Compelling references continue through the millennia in numerous esoteric texts: the sacred B’on treaties, manuscripts of the Kalki lore, the Puranas, the earliest texts of the Kalachakra Laghutantra, in the even older Kalachakra Mulatantra, and in the ancient wisdom traditions of civilizations throughout the Himalayan regions of Asia and beyond.The Zhang Zhung a...

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...

Pirates: The Golden Age of Piracy: A History From Beginning to End (Buccaneer, Blackbeard, Grace o Malley, Henry...

by Hourly History

☆ Pirates ☆
Pirates dominate movie box office profits, they are theme park entertainment, and they occupy a place in popular culture that has outlasted the era when they originally ruled the seas. Contemporary audiences who are safe from the pistols and cutlasses of the men who sailed the Caribbean, Indian, and Atlantic Oceans to prey upon ships and claim their cargo may find it hard to reconcile the perceived glamor of Captain Jack Sparrow with the authentic bloodlust and greed of the real pirates who killed without conscience, kidnapped innocent victims for ransom, and ravaged, bribed, and robbed their way into legend. Tragut Rais, Grace O’Malley, William Kidd, Blackbeard and their colleagues were dangerous adventurers who lived at a time when piracy was an economic enterpris...

The book of Daniel, the modern superpowers and WWII

by Jan Vidar Grindheim

"…and amongst the old Prophets, Daniel is most distinct in order of time, and easiest to be understood: and therefore in those things which relate to the last times, he must be made the key to the rest." Sir Isaac Newton

Could it be that the biblical book of Daniel describes the rise and fall of:
-the British empire,
-the Axis powers (WWII) and
-the USA?
Does it also contain the secret of the future superpowers - after USA? And even beyond that?

Dan 2:20-22 (KJV): Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He reveale...

Queen and Country

by Finn Maedan

If you're looking for an expose into the inner secrets of the Intelligence Services this isn't it. If you're looking for the twisting plot of a new Bond film this isn't it. My name is Finn Maedan and this is my story.In the autumn of 1982 at the age of 17 and at the height of the Cold War I joined a training scheme at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. Following two years in The Park training school I spent the next 11 years travelling the world as a member of the ultra secret Operational Security Department. Three decades on, with most secrets declassified and my memory fading rapidly, now is the time to pass on a few stories to whoever cares. Like most jobs, 90% of what we did was run of the mill, mundane even, and up until now I have never really shared much of what went on.This is the...

World War 1: A History From Beginning to End

It led to the collapse of nations, the abdication of monarchies and ended empires.

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 ...

Blue Warrior's Great Journey: A Native American Story as told by Maza Redman

by Maza Redman

For many years, more than I can remember, I was shown events by Blue Warrior, the main character in this story. After a long time, I found that as I became older, my memories of dreams were beginning to leave me. I feared that one day all that was shown would be forgotten, leaving no one left to tell the peoples’ story and their struggle. In faith, I began writing this book, not to educate or persuade others, but for myself that I might remember what I was shown and all those who gave their lives for the people’s survival.This writing does not try to replace any of the Red two-leg sacred stories that have been past down from generation to generation as these are Sacred but only adds to them so many may see the truth. With great thanks and respect to all the Ancestors of the Red two-leg...
