War Of The Roses: The Struggle for Supremacy

by Patrick Auerbach

What more could you want from a tale, then what the Wars of the Roses can provide you? It is a tale of supremacy that was fought over 30 years. This story includes death by execution, death in battle, and mysterious deaths that are still unknown today. What makes it all the more fascinating is that it is history. It is not a story written by someone like George Martin and his tale of the Game of Thrones. It is not a TV show about the House of Tudor that has taken liberties with historical accounts. The events of the Wars of the Roses are recorded. The various battles fought by five kings trying to gain supremacy over other men happened. Yes, there are certain details of the battles, the deaths, and assumptions that may not be completely true. Different accounts of certain battles, such as how Henry VIs son died will leave us wondering what truly happened. However, all the information is rooted in history, supported by written accounts and tapestries. Discover how the Wars of the Roses started. Learn the early history of England that led to millennia of various wars, battles for supremacy, and different cultures owning English land. Find out how the stage was set for the Wars of the Roses. Which royal members of the family were jealous, and which members acted on those feelings?Read about the main players who continued to wage war against each other. Understand where the name “Wars of the Roses” came from.Above all else, as you read about the various battles fought, think about your family. Could you turn against your closest family members for the right to rule? Could you be as dastardly as some of the uncles, brothers, and cousins as those in the House of Lancaster and House of York? The Wars of the Roses pitted brothers, cousins, and uncles against each other to the point that they should be ashamed in death of what they did in life. Find out how palace intrigue, marriages, and murdering relatives shaped the history of England and brought about the bloodiest day in English history. You will be amazed at the sheer damage the thirst for power can do within a family and within an entire country.

The Golden and Ghoulish Age of the Gibbet in Britain (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Sarah Tarlow

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book is the first academic study of the post-mortem practice of gibbeting (‘hanging in chains’), since the nineteenth century. Gibbeting involved placing the executed body of a malefactor in an iron cage and suspending it from a tall post. A body might remain in the gibbet for many decades, while it gradually fell to pieces. Hanging in chains was a very different sort of post-mortem punishment from anatomical dissection, although the two were equal alternatives in the eyes of the law. Where dissection obliterated and de-individualised the body, hanging in chains made it monumental and rooted it in the landscape, adding to personal notoriety. Focusing particularly on the period 1752-1832, this book provides a summary of the historical evidence, the factual history of gibbetting which explores the locations of gibbets, the material technologies involved in hanging in chains, and the actual process from erection to eventual collapse. It also considers the meanings, effects and legacy of this gruesome practice.

The East India Company: A History From Beginning to End (The East India Companies Book 1)

by Hourly History

★ The East India Company ★
Founded at the dawn of the 17th century as European nations were establishing global empires, the English East India Company would become a vital part of burgeoning British supremacy. Begun as a joint-stock company for trade with the East Indies, this organization would evolve into one of the world’s first capitalistic corporations.

Inside you will read about...
✓ Founding of the East India Company
✓ Struggling, Building, and Growing with Violence
✓ The East India Company Enters the 18th Century
✓ The British Government Steps In
✓ China and the Opium Trade
✓ The Nineteenth Century and Growing British Involvement
✓ The End of the East India Company

Over the course of their 250+ years, they’ve built a global trading empire, raised an army and waged war, and conquered vast territory, including the entire subcontinent of India. Without their involvement, the British presence in India would look very different in the historical record. Though the company was dissolved by 1874, their influence on world history cannot be overstated.

Celts: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Celtic History and Mythology, Including Their Battles Against the Roman Republic in the Gallic Wars

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Celts, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!Today, the word Celtic means so many things. To most of us, it means something related to Ireland. We think of intricately designed Irish crosses, four-leaf clovers, and some of the more well-known stories of Celtic mythology. However, while Celtic culture has stayed alive in Ireland, its roots run much deeper, and they extend much farther than the small island nation off the coast of modern-day Great Britain. The story of the Celts is one of a rapid rise to prominence followed by a slow decline due to the influence of the Romans. But even so, Celtic culture has remained strong in Europe and has been able to persist to this day. So, even though the Celts represent just a small part of today’s modern world, they are a massive part of its history, which means that studying the ancient Celts today is a great way to unlock some of the secrets buried in the depths of ancient history.In Celts: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Celtic History and Mythology, Including Their Battles Against the Roman Republic in the Gallic Wars, you will discover topics such asWho Were the Celts?The Celtic MigrationsThe Many Celtic Tribes of EuropeThe CeltiberiansThe Gallic WarsThe Insular CeltsCeltic WarriorsCeltic Way of LifeCeltic ReligionCeltic ArtAnd much, much more!So if you want to learn more about the Celts, scroll up and click the "add to cart" button!

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 less common, but that it emerged in complex ways and was understood differently in response to prevailing cultural and medical forces. The book explores a host of medical, cultural and social factors that raise important questions about historical and current perceptions of gender and mental illness.

Dissecting the Criminal Corpse: Staging Post-Execution Punishment in Early Modern England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Elizabeth T. Hurren

Those convicted of homicide were hanged on the public gallows before being dissected under the Murder Act in Georgian England. Yet, from 1752, whether criminals actually died on the hanging tree or in the dissection room remained a medical mystery in early modern society. Dissecting the Criminal Corpse takes issue with the historical cliché of corpses dangling from the hangman’s rope in crime studies. Some convicted murderers did survive execution in early modern England. Establishing medical death in the heart-lungs-brain was a physical enigma. Criminals had large bull-necks, strong willpowers, and hearty survival instincts. Extreme hypothermia often disguised coma in a prisoner hanged in the winter cold. The youngest and fittest were capable of reviving on the dissection table. Many died under the lancet. Capital legislation disguised a complex medical choreography that surgeons staged. They broke the Hippocratic Oath by executing the Dangerous Dead across England from 1752 until 1832. This book is open access under a CC-BY license.

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 and the wider rise of neoliberal politics. Appreciation of history and politics is vital to understanding the psychological concerns over these self-harming behaviours.

What we do know is the identity of Jack the Ripper’s victims, the canonical five women who lost their lives at his hands. This is the story not of Jack the Ripper’s life, about which we know nothing, but the lives of the women he destroyed. For better or worse, after Jack the Ripper, life on the streets of London would never be the same again.
