Greek Mythology: Captivating Stories of the Ancient Olympians and Titans (Heroes and Gods, Ancient Myths)

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...

The Middle Ages: A History From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Middle Ages
What do you think of when you consider the Middle Ages?
Knights in armor and damsels in distress?
Vikings plundering monasteries?
Religious dissenters burning at the stake?
The dead bodies piling up as war, famine, and plague devastated Europe?
Think again.

While all these are part of the tapestry of the medieval era, the threads of politics, personality and war, culture, religion, education and the arts are vastly more intricate and fascinating. Think Charlemagne, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Joan of Arc, Peter Abelard, Geoffrey Chaucer and a riveting cast of thousands. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Western Europe had to reinvent itself and redefine its philosophical parentage.

Inside you will read about...

True Crime Stories: A Prequel: 4 Shocking True Crime Cases

by Jack Rosewood

There are killers who stalk their prey, learning all they can about an intended target before striking. Some commit the act of murder out of hatred or revenge for someone in their lives. Killers like Detlev Guenzel searched for like-minded souls who would allow them to indulge in their deepest darkest fantasies. Then of course, there are those who brutally murder for no apparent reason whatsoever. Each of the four true crime murder cases in this true crime anthology are all different from each other in many ways. The wife who was cast aside for a much younger model; the vore who sought out a willing participant in the act of consensual homicide and cannibalism; the young man who butchered his elderly neighbours; and the man whose partners either disappeared or turned up dead over the perio...

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...

Psychiatry and Decolonisation in Uganda (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Yolana Pringle

This open access book investigates psychiatry in Uganda during the years of decolonisation. It examines the challenges facing a new generation of psychiatrists as they took over responsibility for psychiatry at the end of empire, and explores the ways psychiatric practices were tied to shifting political and development priorities, periods of instability, and a broader context of transnational and international exchange. At its heart is a question that has concerned psychiatrists globally since the mid-twentieth century: how to bridge the social and cultural gap between psychiatry and its patients? Bringing together archival research with oral histories, Yolana Pringle traces how this question came to dominate both national and international discussions on mental health care reform, includ...

KIM PHILBY: Our Man in Moscow

by Christian Shakespeare

Your best friend is a traitor.

That is what I thought when I researched this work. I try to reach new depths, to get to the wider part of the story to give you the thrills you as the reader expect from a story.

So here I am writing another book.

I’ll be truthful this one is going to shock you. It will make you think uncomfortably about your friends – and see them in a new light. After reading this I doubt if you will ever trust anyone again. Every time you go out, every time you meet people all you will see is dishonesty.

That’s right, dishonesty.

When someone works in the world of secret espionage they expect it first-hand. The lies and the duplicity committed by a man with no conscience to the consequences ...
