Cicada Spring: A Novel

by Christian Galacar

On a warm May evening in the spring of 1979, the people of Heartsridge, Massachusetts, are living the American dream. Families are gathered for barbecues. Kids are playing in front yards. Gardens are being kept. Meanwhile, Kara Price stumbles home through the woods, raped and beaten, her life shattered by a wicked act of violence, perpetrated by one of the town’s most beloved and public figures.

Surrounding Kara is a cast of compelling and nefarious characters—a violent-tempered mayor who can do no wrong in the eyes of the town, a sheriff bound by the rules and plagued by a guilty conscience, a father bent on revenge, a serial killer in the midst of an identity crisis. And at the center of it all there's Kara, who just wants to move on with her life and forget everythin...

Gods, Goddesses, Heroes & Monsters: Discover the Extraordinary Legends, Folklore & Myths of Ancient Greece (Greek Mythology, Greek Gods, Ancient Greece, Mythology)

by Franklin Pascal

Discover the Extraordinary Legends & Myths of Ancient Greece
The Greeåks were one of the first civilizations to conceive gods and goddesses that were similar to human beings: attractive men and women, old folks with dignity and humor, and young innocent children. Naturally, the gods interacted and communicated with humans on a regular basis. The gods were not typically withdrawn and reserved figures; they actively participated in the affairs of mortals and exercised their greater power to those they favored. In addition, they were neither omnipotent nor omniscient; they possessed individual and humanlike qualities that portrayed them as fallible, imperfect deities rather than absolute and supreme beings.

The Teutonic Knights: The Catholic Church’s Most Powerful Warriors

by Conrad Bauer

The Teutonic Knights are said to be the toughest warriors the Catholic church ever had during the crusades and discover how this Catholic order has influenced our history and even, present times. The Teutonic Knights may receive less attention than the other two Catholic orders of Crusaders—the Hospitallers and the Knights Templar—but their history is just as storied and complex as that of their monastic peers. They were founded in the Middle Eastern fortress of Acre in 1190 AD, and the duress of this war-torn pressure cooker developed in the Teutonic Knights a ferocity that has rarely been matched. The Teutonic Knights were tough—so tough that on some occasions just the sight of their heavy armor, huge broadswords, and helmets with horns reaching to the sky was enough to send their...

In this book, conceived and written for the general reader as well as the specialist, Robert Edelman uses a case study of peasant behavior during a particular revolutionary situation to make an important contribution to one of the major debates in contemporary peasant studies. Edelman's subject is the peasantry of the right-bank Ukraine, and he uses local and regional archives seldom available to Western scholars to give a detailed picture of the ways in which the inhabitants of one of Russia’s most advanced agrarian regions expressed their discontent during the years 1905–1907. By the 1890s, the landlords of Russia’s Southwest had organized a highly successful capitalist form of agriculture, and Edelman demonstrates that their peasants responded to these dramatic economic changes by...

Revolutionary Acts: Amateur Theater and the Soviet State, 1917-1938

by Lynn Mally

During the Russian Revolution and Civil War, amateur theater groups sprang up in cities across the country. Workers, peasants, students, soldiers, and sailors provided entertainment ranging from improvisations to gymnastics and from propaganda sketches to the plays of Chekhov. In Revolutionary Acts, Lynn Mally reconstructs the history of the amateur stage in Soviet Russia from 1917 to the height of the Stalinist purges. Her book illustrates in fascinating detail how Soviet culture was transformed during the new regime's first two decades in power.Of all the arts, theater had a special appeal for mass audiences in Russia, and with the coming of the revolution it took on an important role in the dissemination of the new socialist culture. Mally's analysis of amateur theater as a space where ...

By Honor Bound: State and Society in Early Modern Russia

by Nancy Shields Kollmann

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Russians from all ranks of society were bound together by a culture of honor. Here one of the foremost scholars of early modern Russia explores the intricate and highly stylized codes that made up this culture. Nancy Shields Kollmann describes how these codes were manipulated to construct identity and enforce social norms--and also to defend against insults, to pursue vendettas, and to unsettle communities. She offers evidence for a new view of the relationship of state and society in the Russian empire, and her richly comparative approach enhances knowledge of statebuilding in premodern Europe. By presenting Muscovite state and society in the context of medieval and early modern Europe, she exposes similarities that blur long-standing distinctio...

The Wars of the Roses

by John Gillingham

Frequently remembered only as a period of military history which both saw the French beat the English and then the English fight amongst themselves, traditional historians have tended to regard The Wars of the Roses as an episode that wrecked England's military greatness.John Gillingham's highly readable history separates the myth from the reality. He argues that, paradoxically, the Wars of the Roses demonstrate how peaceful England in fact was. From the accession of the infant Henry VI to the thrones of England and France in 1422 to the accession of Henry VII following the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, Gillingham uses his gift for graphic description (particularly with his exciting account of the 1471 campaign) to great effect. He is also good at placing the warfare within its European cont...
