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 of his actions. Someone who simply holds a higher regard for an idea than for human life holds pure evil rationalised as nobility. Many friends simply refuse to believe it or could not say anything without the risk of losing everything.
Treachery was part and parcel in the tense days of the Cold War where nobody can ever be trusted unless they were of the right class, the right accent and of the right connections.

But that is no guarantee…

In January of 1963, in the age of atomic bombs, the Beatles, and flower power, a man slips out of Beirut and flees to the Soviet Union. For almost 30 years Kim Philby, senior intelligence officer unscrupulously spied for Moscow, wilfully leaking sensitive documents while betraying his friends, colleagues, loved ones and ultimately his country.

For over 10 years he was close to the top of the intelligence game, passing intense secrets, protecting his friends and ensuring the Soviet Union received high level information on state secrets. Kim Philby was both a charmer and a calculator, sending many to their deaths through his unique position. This spy, one of the most damaging of the Cold War, ensured the balance remained between east and west yet his masters never really trusted him.

Kim Philby, spy, cold killer and a complicated traitor.

The scale of the hypocrisy is hard to imagine, scary for you and I to appreciate just how one man could operate with a completely split personality to affect the outcome that could potentially have tipped us all into a nuclear World War III. A man just like Kim Philby.

American Civil War: A History From Beginning to End (Fort Sumter, Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Confederacy, Emancipation Proclamation, Battle of Gettysburg)

by Hourly History

☆☆☆ American Civil War ☆☆☆
Beginning with the birth of the nation, slavery divided and caused conflict for the United States of America, worsening during the country’s early decades as the practice became more economically vital. Finally, in 1861, the American Civil War erupted after the election of President Abraham Lincoln. Never acknowledging the South’s right to secede, Lincoln and the North fought the South through four long, bloody, destructive years; much longer than anyone thought the war would last.

Inside you will read about...
✓ America in the Antebellum Era
✓ Secession and the First Shots
✓ Early Battles and the Turning Point: April 1861-July 1863
✓ The United States and the Confederacy
✓ Women and Blacks in the War
✓ Military Events, 1863-1865: The War Ends
✓ Reconstruction
✓ The Legacy of the Civil War

By 1865, more than 700,000 American soldiers and civilians were dead (including Lincoln himself), a race of people had been freed from bondage, and an entire country needed to rebuild. The Civil War is of such crucial importance to the history of the United States not just because of these factors, but also because its legacy still lives on.

Forbidden Secrets: Egypt, The Lost Knowledge

by M.G. Hawking

New Release: Explore the Lost Knowledge of the Antediluvian Civilization of Ancient Egypt.Thousands of years ago a small Neolithic community in the region of the lower Nile abruptly rose to create the most majestic and enduring civilization of history. The ascension of Ancient Egypt to a previously unknown zenith of culture lasting thousands of years demonstrates advancements that have long eluded explanation. What long lost knowledge underlies the unprecedented technology, artistic creations, and cultural sophistication of Ancient Egypt?The voluminous lore of ancient Egyptian tradition relates that in the antediluvian time of zp tpj (generally transcribed as Zep Tepi), the “first occasion" or “first time,” mysterious, highly enlightened “gods” appeared in Egypt, bearing previously unknown technology and knowledge. The texts inscribed on the walls of the Temple of Edfu in Upper Egypt contain explicit descriptions of the time of Zep Tepi and the coming of the "bringers of knowledge," said to have occurred, the texts tell us, circa 18,000 B.C.In the Sahara Desert of southern Egypt is an area known as Nabta Playa. Here an ancient stone calendar circle, along with 25 other megalithic structures, was identified by archaeologist Fred Wendorf in 1998. According to an extensive analysis by NASA astrophysicist Thomas Brophy and his team, three stones inside the Nabta calendar circle represent the belt of Orion, just as the three pyramids of Giza align to represent that same constellation. The stones of the Nabta Playa’s stone calendar circle and the corresponding stars in the sky aligned on summer solstice nights as they appeared circa 16,500 B.C. Based on these and other analyses, Brophy’s team concluded that the ancient builders of Nabta Playa possessed highly sophisticated astronomical knowledge, the type of knowledge we associate with advanced civilization.Plato (c. 428-348 B.C.) writes of Egyptian masters presenting him with historical records extending back some 18,000 years: “Egypt has recorded and kept eternally the wisdom of the ancient ages, all coming from time immemorial when gods governed the earth in the dawn of civilization." Herodotus tells us that when Hecataeus of Miletus (550-476 BC) boasted to the Egyptian priests that he could trace his ancestry through fifteen centuries, they quietly showed him, in a hidden sanctuary deep under the sands, the statutes of 345 high priests, each the son of the preceding, making 345 generations since their "gods" had appeared in the Nile valley and marking a timeline extending back one-hundred-eighty centuries.This ancient evidence reveals that a sophisticated Egyptian civilization existed long prior to the last glacial period, and most importantly prior to the ‘Younger Dryas Boundary’ cataclysmic event as well. The ‘YDB’ event, which occurred circa 10,770 B.C., is thought to have been caused by the impacts or air-bursts of several comets, resulting in massive shockwaves and firestorms sweeping across continents, initiating a 1200 year-long epoch of terminal environmental change and catastrophic faunal extinction, effectively wiping all but traces of early civilizations from the historical record.This book reveals and fully explores the forbidden secrets and profound lost knowledge of a magnificent civilization, long concealed in myth and legend. An important read for anyone seeking greater personal knowledge and power. New Release, Kindle e-reader page count 320 (estimated, actual count varies with the reading device used).

Mysticism in Nepal and Tibet, The Himalayan Journals of M.G. Hawking: August 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 to the discovery of the most refined and powerful mystical knowledge possessed by the human race.’Mystical’ adj. 1.1 Having a spiritual significance that transcends human understanding; 1.3 Of hidden or esoteric meaning; 2.0 Inspiring a sense of spiritual mystery, awe, and fascination; 2.1 Concerned with the soul or spirit, rather than with material things; 2.2 Having a spiritual meaning or reality that is neither apparent to the senses nor obvious to the intelligence. Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford University Press, 2nd Ed., 1989.Experience has proven that this mystical knowledge offers the illumination and guidance necessary to create a superlative life, but of which few have a full appreciation. If truly understood through patient study, fully integrated into your core belief system, and practiced with unwavering diligence, this knowledge can wholly transform your experience of this world in every positive way imaginable.Many years ago, on an extended trek into a largely unexplored inner region of the vast wilderness of the Himalayas, Hawking chanced on an unexpected find. In a majestic valley surrounded by towering ice peaks, he encountered a beautiful small village called Siddhalaya. In that community he had the privilege of meeting a number of truly extraordinary men and women. This encounter marked the beginning of sixty-two months Hawking spent in the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet, during which time he kept detailed records of his adventures, experiences, and conversations with those highly enlightened individuals.In association with Hawking, over the past several years our team at Wisdom Masters Press has worked diligently to compose a series of books based on his journals and field notes. This was a daunting assignment; Hawking accumulated a rich treasury of over 14,000 pages of hand-written journal notes, along with another 4,500 pages of field notes. It was a fascinating if formidable task, one that could not have been accomplished without the assistance and encouragement of some of the extraordinary individuals Hawking met in the Himalayas, experiences that filled everyone involved with a deep sense of awe and wonder.About this Book: This volume presents a comprehensive anthology of excerpts from seven books containing detailed narratives of Hawking’s various experiences and conversations, including first-hand accounts of the psychokinetic abilities he witnessed and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge that made such extraordinary abilities possible. Includes a suggested reading list with book descriptions.New Release, Kindle e-reader page count 182 (estimated, actual page count varies with the reading device used).

Without a Trace: 1881-1968

by Sylvia Wrigley

True Stories of Aircraft and Passengers Who Disappeared Into Thin AirFor many, aviation still brings with it an air of mystery, a century-long magic trick. Though most of us will board an aircraft at some point in our lives, we know little about how they work and the procedures surrounding their operation. It is that mystery that makes these losses, such as the vanishing of Malaysia Airlines flight 370, so terrifying.Without a Trace explores the most interesting of these disappearances: mysteries that have baffled investigators for years. Occasionally tragic, frequently amusing, Without a Trace is unerringly accurate and informative.The two Without a Trace volumes span 150 years and explore mysteries from around the world. This is volume one, beginning just before the golden age of aviation with a manned balloon swept over the English Channel, and ending with a top-secret spy plane disappearing at the height of the cold war. Each case is laid out in rich detail and presented chronologically, highlighting the historical context, official accident reports and contemporary news surrounding each mystery.Where did they go?Sylvia Wrigley introduces the crews, innocent bystanders and rescuers in this collection of true stories. Documenting the popular theories from each case, she uses her knowledge and experience as a pilot and an aviation journalist to demystify aviation jargon and narrow down each disappearance to the most likely explanations.This collection takes a hard look at the human failings of great aviators, explorers and celebrities who have pushed the limits of flight and ended up at the heart of a mystery. The stories encompass airships, military jets and commercial airlines - all of which have vanished without a trace.

The Strange Ways of Providence In My Life: An Amazing WW2 Survival Story (A Jewish Girl's Holocaust Book Surviving Memoir)

by Krystyna Carmi

God looks after the orphansHappy childhood, horrors of war and miraculous rescue of the only child survivor from Obertyn.Krystyna Carmi's childhood was full of happy moments in the family house. Her childhood was filled with friends, both Polish and Ukrainian girls, that played games with her. She attended a Ukrainian school, participated in school celebrations; she lived a normal, everyday life. In her memoire, published after many years of silence, Krystyna Carmi shows the history of her family and her life. The book contains more than 100 pictures, taken by Krystyna’s father, a professional photographer, and sent it to their family in Israel before the war.Krystyna was gifted with an amazing memory and as such was able to recall the atmosphere of those days, describing in details the appearance of a household; and if that wasn’t enough, Krystyna Carmi writes about something very rare, the smells she remembered from childhood. Walking with her on the streets of pre-war Obertyn, we get to know the Jews, the Ukrainians, and the Poles and the social and material conditions of their lives, as well as their names and surnames. Krystyna Carmi paints a psychological portrait of these people; she writes about how they dressed, what they ate, what their attitude towards others was, and above all, towards God. She writes about things seemingly trivial, however when looking back, they are incredibly significant.But the happy childhood did not last long. The first days of war brought overall fear and panic, the entrance of Red Army soldiers to Obertyn, the arrest of Polish patriots, liquidation of Jewish shops, the gradual growth into a more difficult reality of occupation, the Hungarian army in Obertyn, Jews murdered by Ukrainians in the local towns, incredible photos of the members of the Jewish community, drowning in the Dniester by Ukrainians. However, the worst was still ahead of the Jewish community in Obertyn and her family. First, the Germans, then the Kołomyja ghetto. She was with her parents as well as her maternal and paternal grandfathers. The life conditions in which Obertyn Jews had to live are described in the poem Molasa ”" Ghetto Sweets; she shows in a fictile, detailed way, psychophysical suffering caused by hunger.People died in the ghetto because of hunger and physical exhaustion; their bodies were collected on a platform. These deaths do not escape the attention of a sensitive and suffering girl, who years later will write a poem with the title In Remembrance of Innocently Suffering People of Different Ages and Sexes from Kołomyja Ghetto; a picture of the platform will stay in her memory forever. "The open mouth and eyes of these human corpses have been hunting me all my life."Then she returned from the ghetto with her parents, and escaped from Obertyn, following by her sisters’ death, which she described in a very suggestive way in her poems: Black Kamionka Forest. Part I Testimony and Black Kamionka Forest. Part II Curse). Her parents’ death, hiding, hunger, thirst, fear for life, then indifference as time goes by because life is hard. It would be easier to part with the world, but The Strange Ways of Providence in her Life has chosen for her to live, to be. This is how you could present in short, the content of Krystyna Carmi’s memoire. The memoire are interspersed with the cover of Doctor Markus Willbach, a friend of the Sorger family to emphasize the authenticity of Krystyna Carmi’s (maiden name: Sorger) memories as the images, situations, and events witnessed by her as a little girl coincide with Doctor Willbach’s account, an adult at that time.

Cuba - Pearl Of The Antilles

by Adrian Musgrave

The Great War of 1914 - 1918 has taught the world more in geography and history than a century of ordinary education would have imparted. It has destroyed many inherited prejudices and shattered the complacency which was shackling the imagination that built up the British Empire. As peace introduces a new era of international comity which will test the bonds forged between the Allied countries, this seems an opportune time to present some simple facts regarding Cuba, a young member of the family of nations, that has stood solidly with the Allies from the outset, but of whom the British people know so little. We have special interests in the West Indies, and there are sentimental and practical reasons why we should have a cordial understanding with our largest neighbour there, nearly the size of England.British policy is being determined by a public that cares nothing about other countries unless pestilence, war, earthquake or lynching gives them a news value, while the American Press, on the other hand, teems with articles destined to create a wide interest in Cuban affairs and commercial opportunities. Driven by the enthusiasm and support of their Government, and particularly Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, Americans are gaining an increasing share in Cuba's rapidly developing infrastructure and trade. Inspired by all these promising signs, it was the vision of men such as: John Findlay Wallace, John Frank Stevens and Lieutenant Colonel George Washington Goethals, that brought life to the President's most ambitious project, to connect the Pacific to the Atlantic through a canal across the Isthmus of Panama. Within just two years of the opening of the Panama Canal in 1915, thousands of Americans and Canadians were flocking to the Caribbean Islands and, particularly, to Cuba - the Pearl of the Antilles

Five Years in the Himalayas, The Journals & Field Notes of Explorer M.G. Hawking

by M.G. Hawking

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 to the discovery of the most refined and powerful knowledge possessed by the human race.Many years ago, on an extended trek into an inner region of the vast wilderness of the Great Himalayan Range, Hawking chanced on an unexpected find. In a majestic valley surrounded by towering ice peaks, he encountered a beautiful small village. In that community, called Siddhalaya by its residents, he had the privilege of meeting a number of truly extraordinary men and women. This encounter marked the beginning of sixty-two months Hawking spent in the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet, during which time he kept detailed records of his adventures, experiences, and conversations with those highly enlightened individuals.Over the past several years the team at Wisdom Masters Press, in association with Hawking, has worked diligently to compose a series of books based on his journals and field notes. This was a daunting assignment; he had accumulated over 14,000 pages of hand-written journal notes, along with another 4,500 pages of field notes, all of which had to be sorted and cataloged. Yet it was a fascinating if formidable task, one that could not have been accomplished without the assistance and encouragement of some of the extraordinary individuals Hawking met in the Himalayas, all of whom you will meet in the pages of our books.From the Author: “The knowledge of the masters is profound and powerful, and one hopes it will have relevance to others, will offer them insight and guidance, will greatly expand their knowledge and power, will be validated by their experience, or, at the very least, will stimulate them to search further on their own. The philosophy expressed by the masters reflects as well the broader context and search of our culture at this particular stage of its development. The evolutionary viewpoints in this book reflect that emerging pattern of a seeking for our direction and place in the Universe—a reawakening of a search begun by the original pre-Socratic philosophers, one that goes further back than even the roots of religion—the search for a true connection with our origins in the Cosmos that gave rise to us and within which we continue the creation our individual lives and the mass co-creation of the world we all share. There are no words adequate to express my respect for those remarkable sages who gave to me, an amateur, so lavishly of their time and knowledge. They appeared to be grateful to see their efforts aided by one who loves life and wisdom enough to permit him to share their wisdom, insights, dialogues, and highly elevated knowledge.” —M.G. HawkingAbout this Book: This volume presents a comprehensive anthology of eight (8) books containing detailed narratives of Hawking’s various experiences and conversations, including first-hand accounts of the psychokinetic abilities he witnessed and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge that made such extraordinary abilities possible.

The Chesapeake: Oyster Buyboats, Ships & Steamed Crabs - short stories, fish tales & The Country Philosopher: A Collection of Short Stories from the pages of The Chesapeake

by Ken Rossignol

Welcome aboard the third volume of THE CHESAPEAKE – This book, THE CHESAPEAKE: Oyster Buyboats, Ships & Steamed Crabs, spans the decades of the lives of our writers and the times of the Chesapeake Tidewater region from 1900 to the present time.
A first person account of Chesapeake Bay bounty being harvested and provided to the national market is related by Capt. Joe Lore of Solomon’s Island, along with an interview with his father, Capt. J. C. Lore Sr. from fifty years earlier.
Pepper Langley relished his days of establishing his own business after his high school commencement speaker told him he had a gold mine in his back yard.
The story telling of Vi Englund is superb as she wrote vivid descriptions of going to sea. Get lost in the middle of roaring Atlantic storms in her ship’s galley and appreciate the majesty of the sea.
Mark Robbins provides entertaining tales of sailing and Cap’n Larry Jarboe cannot be beat when it comes to knowing where the fish are hanging out and how to get them on your hook.
The Country Philosopher, Stephen Gore Uhler got an elbow from another philosopher, Amos Arthur Holmes but Steve wins overall for truthfulness, not a trait he learned from Jack Rue. Between Jack Rue and Fred McCoy, old tales are here for a new generation of tale-learners eager to find digital news of days of old. Some of the old gold mines of The Solomon’s Islander and The Chesapeake have been reopened and we found Tony Marconi and Lenny Rudow hiding back in the caverns, grinning and eager to share their news and views with the world.
The Bill Burton State Park at Cambridge, to the Cape Charles harbor shown on the cover, unite both shores of the Chesapeake to bring you, the reader, who may or may not dabble in U-Boat fantasies and time-warps, a complete view of the Tidewater region.
The Tidewater area contributed to the birth of Rock and Roll with the infamous home-grown talent of Link Wray and Greg Laxton makes sure Link’s place in history is secure.
No part of the Chesapeake lore could be complete without more Letters from Point Lookout Hotel, and while Alan Brylawski is now ninety-six, he refuses to join the Dead Poets Society. Alan tells you how to fix fried hard-crabs in great detail.

A Short History of Spain

by Mary Platt Parmele

The history of Spain dates back to the Early Middle Ages. In 1516, Habsburg Spain unified a number of disparate predecessor kingdoms; its modern form of a constitutional monarchy was introduced in 1813, and the current democratic constitution dates to 1978. After the completion of the Reconquista, the kingdoms of Spain were united under Habsburg rule in 1516. At the same time, the Spanish Empire began to expand to the New World across the ocean, marking the beginning of the Golden Age of Spain, during which, from the early 1500s to the 1650s, Habsburg Spain was among the most powerful states in Europe.Written in an engaging style, Mary Parmele’s concise study A Short History of Spain introduces readers to the key themes that have shaped modern Spain.

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, including at the World Health Organization, and helped spur a culture of experimentation and creativity globally. As Pringle shows, however, the history of psychiatry during the years of decolonisation remained one of marginality, and ultimately, in the context of war and violence, the decolonisation of psychiatry was incomplete.

George Washington
George Washington, the first president of the United States, is much more than a monument on Mount Rushmore. Who was Washington, the general, president, and husband? He was first and foremost a man of impeccable honor which, despite military adversity and political wrangling, never abandoned him. The Founding Fathers who squabbled and competed amongst themselves did agree on one thing: only Washington could lead the country, first in the country’s military fight for freedom and then as the man charged with transforming thirteen individual states into a united country. But in his youth, George Washington did not intend to become the Father of his Country. As a younger son of a middling class Virginian, he intended to earn his living as a surveyor, and in that role, he was introduced to the vast potential of the country that would one day be a nation. But when the death of his older brother made him the heir to Mount Vernon, Washington ascended to leadership in the military, political and social spheres of Virginia and the United States.

✓ Return to Mount Vernon

As a member and later officer in the Virginia militia, he fought with the British army against the French as the two European powers struggled for control of the rich Ohio Valley. The British, who would refuse Washington a commission in their army, would later meet him in battle as the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, fighting for independence against the forces of King George III. As a political leader, he would become the architect of the American government. As the master of Mount Vernon, Washington’s marriage to the wealthy Martha Dandridge Custis placed him among the elite of the Virginia aristocracy. His integrity established a model for subsequent generations to emulate. That few have managed to match his achievements is an indication of his influence and character. Meet George Washington, the man, and discover the identity of this remarkable leader.

The Renaissance: A History From Beginning to End (Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Theresa of Avila, William Shakespeare, Martin Luther, Johannes Gutenberg)

by Hourly History

☆ The Renaissance ☆
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. The Renaissance, or rebirth, was a period of time when Europeans began to question what they had been told was sacrosanct. Through art, inventions, science, literature, and theology, the separate nations of the European continent sought answers that the Roman Catholic Church was unwilling, or perhaps unable, to offer.

✓ The Rebirth of Europe
✓ The Italian Renaissance
✓ The French Renaissance
✓ The Spanish Renaissance
✓ The German Renaissance
✓ The Low Countries Renaissance
✓ The English Renaissance
✓ Here Be Dragons: Exploring the Unknown

The Church that had become a powerful political entity was viewed with distrust and skepticism by many Christians; the spread of learning that accompanied the invention of Gutenberg’s printing press meant that bold new ideas were traveling across the boundaries of Europe faster than the Church could silence them. Lascivious, power-brokering popes could not bring a halt to the challenges they encountered when a German priest rebelled against corrupt practices that masqueraded as ecclesiastical authority. As the walls came tumbling down, humanism burst forth, inspiring the art of Michelangelo, the science of Vesalius, the literature of Shakespeare and Cervantes. But with the loss of religious uniformity came terrible conflicts: France suffered the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre; Spain welcomed the Inquisition to purge heresy; the Low Countries were split between Catholic and Protestant. The Renaissance was a triumph of the human spirit and a confirmation of human ability, even as it affirmed the willingness of men and women to die for the right to think freely.
