A Short Life of Marie Antoinette

by John Abbott

“Let them eat cake!”Did she really say it?After a two-day trial begun on 14 October 1793, Marie Antoinette was convicted by the Revolutionary Tribunal of high treason, and she was executed by guillotine on Place de la Révolution on 16 October 1793. Long after her death, she remains a major historical figure, the subject of books, films and other forms of media. Politically engaged authors have deemed her the quintessential representative of class conflict, western aristocracy and absolutism. Some of her contemporaries, such as Jefferson, attributed to her the start of the French Revolution. For others, Marie Antoinette was a victim of her family ambition and the general situation in France. However, even her critics have recognized her qualities as a mother and her courage in dying.In...

Winston Churchill: The Incredible Life And Legacy Of Winston Churchill

by Tom King

The Incredible Life and Legacy of Sir Winston Churchill takes an inside look the man whom many historians consider one of the greatest world leaders in modern history. But was he really that great? Known for countless and memorable quotes, including ones he came to regret saying, we delve into some of the lesser known aspects of Churchill’s life. Surviving a death defying injury before the age of twenty, taking responsibility for the deaths of hundreds of British sailors at the outset of war and befriending a man he loathed, we explore how he went from the trenches of France during the First World War to the conference tables of the Kremlin and the White House during the second world war and beyond.History has been kind to Winston Churchill, yet his many shortcomings have been glossed ov...

Mysticism in Nepal and Tibet, The Himalayan Journals of M.G. Hawking: May 2019 Edition Exploratory Anthology

by M.G. Hawking

New Release There has long been a deep desire felt by scholars, both past and present, to recover the silent secrets of the ancient cultures of Tibet and Nepal, to trace the background of their prehistoric spiritual development as derived from ever earlier cultures, and then to discover whatever modern manifestations might still exist in the remote margins of that mysterious world. This desire has exerted a powerful pull on the imaginations of Westerners—historians, philologists, Tibetologists, philosophers, physicists, and psi researchers alike.Composed from the journals of explorer M.G. Hawking’s five years in remote areas of the Himalayas, this book transports the reader into regions of our planet that in all history only a handful of people have experienced, a journey that leads t...

Iberian World Empires and the Globalization of Europe 1415–1668 (Palgrave Studies in Comparative Global History)

by Bartolomé Yun-Casalilla

This open access book analyses Iberian expansion by using knowledge accumulated in recent years to test some of the most important theories regarding Europe’s economic development. Adopting a comparative perspective, it considers the impact of early globalization on Iberian and Western European institutions, social development and political economies. In spite of globalization’s minor importance from the commercial perspective before 1750, this book finds its impact decisive for institutional development, political economies, and processes of state-building in Iberia and Europe.  The book engages current historiographies and revindicates the need to take the concept of composite monarchies as a point of departure in order to understand the period’s economic and social developments, ...

Have Personality Disorder, Will Rule Russia: An Iconoclastic History by a Recovering Russophile

by Jennifer Eremeeva

“I always imagine Russian history,” suggests American writer and veteran expatriate, Jennifer Eremeeva, “on a huge, 3D IMAX screen, surround sound booming with a jumbo bucket of popcorn in your lap and huge blue drink at your side.”  Eremeeva should know: as a former tour guide and Ivy League-educated historian, Eremeeva is adept at making Russia’s complex history both entertaining and digestible for non-academics.  She strolls expertly but lightly through her material, tracing the winning formula for Russia’s effective rulers back to the Tatar Mongols: revealing why Ivan may not have been so Terrible; explaining why Catherine so totally awesome; and asserting that neither Peter the Great nor Stalin would ever tweet anything.

by Ross Tanner

Captivating Stories of the Ancient Olympians and Titans
Did you know that Zeus loved many women, both goddesses and mortals?

Did you know that he turned himself into golden rain for one damsel who was locked away in a tower, and turned himself into a swan for another beauty?

Did you know that he kidnapped one young princess which led to her brother founding the city of Thebes?

And did you know that, to protect his own power, Zeus swallowed his first wife, just as Cronus had swallowed his own children in a previous age?

Greek myth is full of fascinating tales of Titans and Olympian gods. Some of it makes us wonder if there might be some hint of truth behind those stories, no matter how outrageous they may sound. What parts of those s...

China’s relation to Taiwan has been in constant contention since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in October 1949 and the creation of the defeated Kuomintang (KMT) exile regime on the island two months later. The island’s autonomous sovereignty has continually been challenged, initially because of the KMT’s insistence that it continue to represent not just Taiwan but all of China—and later because Taiwan refused to cede sovereignty to the then-dominant power that had arisen on the other side of the Taiwan Strait. One thing that makes Taiwan so politically difficult and yet so intellectually...
