Dubliners (Prometheus Classics)

by James Joyce and Prometheus Classics

Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. The fifteen stories were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of the Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.The stories were written at the time when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They center on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character has a special moment of self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by children as protagonists, and as the stories...

He presents a puzzling paradox for both psychologists and sociologists; he was simultaneously revered, feared, loved, and hated during his lifetime.

Swarm Troopers: How small drones will conquer the world

by David Hambling

Small unmanned aircraft are already transforming warfare, with hand-launched scouts like the Raven and lethal tactical drones like Switchblade already in use by US forces.

A bigger revolution is on the way, as swarming software allows a single operator to control large numbers of drones, and smartphone technology means they can be built for $1,000 each -- by anybody, not just governments.

This book looks at the history of drone warfare, the rise of big drones like the Predator and how they are being eclipsed by smaller unmanned aircraft. And how the future is being shaped by smartphone technology, swarm software, miniaturised munitions and energy-harvesting that allows small drones to fly forever.

It also looks at why current air defence cannot stop...

Beyond the Wire: A Soldier's Perspective on the Iraq War

by Ross Bryan

Squinting from a one-two punch of exhaustion and the eerie faded-brass hue of a desert sun that doesn't take breaks and never seems to want to, I’m trying to decide just how in the hell I ended up here. Here, being Iraq. Cavalry Scout. In the Army for that matter. Perhaps if I thought long and hard enough I could remember. I knew for damn sure that I had no shortage of time to work it out.

My journey had started 6,250 miles to the west in a crumbling Ohio mill town called Ashtabula. I had spent the better part of a year at a 3rd shift job in a factory on the far end of town, trying not to lose myself in the mullets and meth of the American Midwest. Then came 9/11. The images of those airplanes slamming into the NYC skyline like lawn darts playing on a constant loop on CNN. ...

Unbroken:: Louis Zamperini

by Megan Groeneveld and M.D. Jones

The initial box-office success of Unbroken: Survival, Resilience, Redemption has sparked interest across the country in the film’s protagonist, Louis Zamperini. In director Angelina Jolie’s treatment, Zamperini’s story is told through sweeping cinematography and skillful use of close-ups and panoramic shots. However, many people may find themselves asking: Who is Louis Zamperini? To answer briefly, he was a World War II combat veteran, an Olympic athlete, and a man of honor. These brief descriptors, however, do not do justice as to the myriad reasons why Zamperini deserves our respect as well as our remembrance.

In this spectacular read, Groeneveld explains why Unbroken: Survival, Resilience, Redemption has been such an outstanding filme. Groeneveld is clear an articu...
