Sketch of the Life of Gen. John Burrows Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Sketch of the Life of Gen. John Burrows: Of Lycoming County When I was thirteen years old, my father sent for me home, and I had to take my turn at riding; and I never carried a mail, during the three years that I rode, but I could have carried on my little finger. My kind step-mother having deceased, my father married a third wife, very unlike his last. She had six children, and he had six. Upon which occasion, his children, not feeling comfortable at home and the news of the British landing on Long Island, we all five marched in the militia; and when our tour expired, we joined the flying camp; was on Long Island at the retreat of it. Two of my brothers were taken at Fort Washington, and the rest of us returned with the remnant of the retreating army to Pennsylvania, and the British close on our heels all the way, until we crossed the Delaware. Gen. Washington lay about two weeks at my father's, opposite Trenton; then removed to Newtown, the county seat of Bucks, from which place he marched with his little army on Christmas morning, 1776, and crossed the Delaware that night, nine miles above Trenton. I crossed with him, and assisted in taking the Hessians next morning. The particulars of the arrangement and plan of the different divisions of the army intending to cross the river, but was prevented by the ice; the places, number of divisions, &c., has been erroneously given in history. The prisoners were conveyed across the river, and we remained in Jersey until that day week, the 2d of January, (the cannonade at Trenton,) and marched that night, at twelve o'clock, up the Sandpink Creek, and arrived at Stony-Brook, about one mile from Princeton, at sunrise. In ascending the hill to the town, to the right of the main road, there was an extensive thick thorn hedge. When we got pretty near to it, the whole British force that lay at Princeton had concealed themselves in ambush behind the hedge, and rose and fired. The Philadelphia militia were in front, and gave way; but were rallied again by Generals Cadwallader and Mifflin. After the enemy were driven from the hedge - there being but one gate in the hedge to pass through to pursue them - Gen. Mercer in advance, with a small party, was first through the gate. The enemy observing it, rushed back to the charge, and bayoneted the General and twelve others before they could be relieved. Part of the army moved swiftly to the right, round the hedge, got ahead of part of the enemy and captured five hundred of them.

Life as a Chelsea Headhunter Apex Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Optical illusions are the stuff of magic - harmless entertainment conjured up to both enthral and amaze, aren't they? Well, maybe not, as it's not quite so amusing if the 'stunt' takes the form of an episode of the BBC's 'groundbreaking' documentary series MacIntyre Undercover on organised football hooliganism, the wizardry is conducted by unscrupulous investigative journalists posing as big-time drug dealers, and as a result the unwitting participant in the trick, avid Chelsea supporter Jason Marriner, is charged with conspiracy to commit violent disorder and affray, together with his friend Andy Frain, and Jason ends up with a six-year jail sentence for a crime he didn't commit. This is Jason's chance to put the record straight, present the facts from his own perspective and challenge the reader, who may well have been one of the 7.4 million documentary viewers, to decide whether the programme actually revealed the 'ugly face of football violence', or indeed showed him plotting or committing any violence whatsoever, or whether the original 344 hours' worth of footage, secretly filmed over a period of 18 months, were distorted beyond recognition by cutting, editing and stitching together clips from the original sequences to achieve the programme's aim at any cost. Jason would be the first to admit that in the past he had been a 'nuisance' on the terraces, but this was the late 1990s and, with a wife, children and his own business, he had done a lot of growing up and moving on. Fortunately, he had also developed the strength of character needed to survive in prison with humour, dignity and determination, and he shares his insights of life behind bars as he tried to work with the system, despite the knock-backs, in order to make it work for him in return. 'Good will always follow bad' is Jason's admirable philosophy about his experiences, but this shocking real-life story serves as a warning to all: this could so easily happen to you.

The Rebel League: The Short and Unruly Life of the World Hockey Association MCCLELLAND & STEWART

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The wildest seven years in the history of hockey "The Rebel League celebrates the good, the bad, and the ugly of the fabled WHA. It is filled with hilarious anecdotes, behind the scenes dealing, and simply great hockey. It tells the story of Bobby Hull's astonishing million-dollar signing, which helped launch the league, and how he lost his toupee in an on-ice scrap.It explains how a team of naked Birmingham Bulls ended up in an arena concourse spoiling for a brawl. How the Oilers had to smuggle fugitive forward Frankie "Seldom" Beaton out of their dressing room in an equipment bag. And how Mark Howe sometimes forgot not to yell "Dad!" when he called for his teammate father, Gordie, to pass. There's the making of "Slap Shot, that classic of modern cinema, and the making of the virtuoso line of Hull, Anders Hedberg, and Ulf Nilsson. It began as the moneymaking scheme of two California lawyers. They didn't know much about hockey, but they sure knew how to shake things up. The upstart WHA introduced to the world 27 new hockey franchises, a trail of bounced cheques, fractious lawsuits, and folded teams. It introduced the crackpots, goons, and crazies that are so well remembered as the league's bizarre legacy. But the hit-and-miss league was much more than a travelling circus of the weird and wonderful. It was the vanguard that drove hockey into the modern age. It ended the NHL's monopoly, freed players from the reserve clause, ushered in the 18-year-old draft, moved the game into the Sun Belt, and put European players on the ice in numbers previously unimagined. The rebel league of the WHA gave shining stars their big-league debut and others their swan song, and providedhigh-octane fuel for some spectacular flameouts. By the end of its seven years, there were just six teams left standing, four of which - the Winnipeg Jets, Quebec Nordiques, Edmonton Oilers, and Hartford Whalers - would wind up in the expanded NHL.

John Wesley Mr. Wesleys birth - Escape from death by fire - His education and ordination - Is nicknamed a Methodist at college - His benevolent efforts for the sick, poor, and prisoners - Opposition - Proposes some queries to his opponents - His religious state - Last meeting of his father's family. The Rev. John Wesley was born at Epworth, in Lincolnshire, England, on the 17th of June, 1703, O. S. His father, grandfather, and great grandfather were ministers, as also were his brothers, Samuel and Charles. When about six years of age, the providence of God preserved him from a most dreadful death. At this time his father's house was burned about midnight. It was supposed to have been set on fire by some wicked people who were offended with his plain preaching. For some time it was thought that John must perish in the flames. His father heard him cry, but could not help him, as he was in the second story of the house: but giving him up for lost, he kneeled down and commended his soul to God. The little boy was waked by the fire, and seeing the chamber and bed on fire was frightened. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Mustaine: A Life in Metal Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Founding member of Megadeth and former Metallica guitarist Dave Mustaine tells a never-before-heard story of the lifetime he has spent in rock 'n' roll. But this extraordinary tale, riddled with his own personal ups and downs, is also the inside account of two of the most influential heavy metal bands in the world. Here, for the first time ever, Dave Mustaine tells the tale of two of the biggest metal bands in history; a story yet to be told from the inside. Metallica, the pioneers of the thrash metal genre, rocketed to international fame in the 1980s, selling over 90 million records worldwide, making it the most successful band of its kind - ever. Megadeth, the second most successful thrash metal band ever, have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, including six consecutive platinum albums. Despite their enormous success together, Dave and Metallica have bad blood by the bucket-load. In April of 1983, due in part to alcoholism and in part to personality clashes with founding members Hetfield and Ulrich, Dave was unceremoniously fired from the band, dumped at a Greyhound bus station in Rochester, NY with a single ticket back to LA. How did such an abrupt end come about? How did he pick himself back up, recover his dignity, and go on to send another band into the dizzying heights of rock stardom? The time has come to set the record straight. From the early, crazy days of Metallica to his split with the band, and to his glorious reign with Megadeth, Dave has seen and experienced life's extremities. This startlingly candid, refreshingly in-your-face memoir tells it all.

The economy crashed, the country is floundering, and Carrie Ashworth struggles to keep her siblings alive. She has two jobs in her newly-formed, newly-outlawed clan: grow crops to feed thirty-six people, and maintain contact with Oliver Simmons, their local patrolman. Carrie's life is almost content when Greg Pierce shows up. A man with the ambition to help them survive. A man determined to hate her. Greg sets to work devising systems to protect the clan from the new regime, but it doesn't take long to realize the true reason behind their safety. Patrolman Simmons has fallen for Carrie. When a government raid nearly wipes out their clan, Greg takes it upon himself to give the socially-awkward patrolman what he wants. Only Carrie doesn't like Greg throwing her in Simmons' path, especially when Greg's brusque exterior melts, and she catches a glimpse of the real man underneath. But in town, Simmons' coworkers have grown suspicious. A clan the size of Logan Pond can't have 'slipped' past his patrols all this time. When their hidden loot goes missing, they want revenge, and the one thread holding Logan Pond together is about to break. Carrie is forced to choose: follow her heart or save her clan. Life won't let her choose both.

Excerpt from About the Contemplative Life, or the Fourth Book of the Treatise Concerning Virtues Any such hypothesis ignores the philological affinities of the piece: as well as all the circumstances of its trans mission to us in the manuscripts and in ancient versions. It conflicts with chronology, rests upon wholesale mis understanding of the text, and presupposes conditions of pseud-epigraphic authorship which never did and never could exist. That it should be rapidly stereotyping itself among scholars is indicative of a prevalent and regrettable ignorance of Philo's writings; and it was in the hope of being able to correct an error which is the inversion of three centuries of religious history, that I undertook six years ago, at the instance of Professor L. Massebieau of Paris, the present edition. If he had kept his health and strength, he would have himself followed up his excellent monograph 1 with a critical edition of the Greek text.

Early Life of Moltke Forgotten Books

Excerpt from The Early Life of Moltke: A Lecture Delivered Before the University of Oxford, May 10, 1918 During the winter of 1884-5 I had occasion to be a frequent visitor to the German Reichstag in Berlin. The house in those days had the form of a Greek theatre. On the stage, which was raised six or seven feet above what in an ancient theatre would have been the orchestra, were the seats and tables of the President and the ministers, and a stair led down from the stage to the orchestra. The members' seats were arranged in rising tiers round the semicircular floor of the orchestra, which was vacant except for the reporters' table. There had just been a general election, so that it was a new Reichstag. At the first meeting, as soon as members were in their places, a tall officer in uniform walked up to the President's table and stood erect, in an easy attitude, behind it. The buzz of talk was suddenly hushed and the officer said, 'The law requires that at the first meeting of a new Reichstag the oldest member should preside. I was born on the 26th of October, 1800. If no other member announces that he was born before that date I shall take the chair.' After a short pause he sat down at the table and opened the proceedings for the election of a President. That oldest member was Field-Marshal Count Moltke, chief of the great general staff of the army. A few days later I passed him in the corridor of the House, and saw a face that I shall never forget. The skin was wrinkled and tanned like leather, so that it seemed like the mask of a mummy, a suggestion not belied by the smooth-lying brown hair.

This is a collection of 100 postcards, each featuring a different jacket from Pelican Books, Penguin's iconic non-fiction series. Covering subjects from socialism to sex, psychoanalysis to atomic physics, and written by great thinkers ranging from Sigmund Freud to Martin Luther King, Pelican brought accessible, intelligent books to a generation, making knowledge everybody's property. In 1936 Allen Lane, the founder of Penguin, overheard a woman at a King's Cross Station bookstall asking for 'one of those Pelican books'. She meant Penguin, but Lane, concerned a rival might snatch up the name, decided to launch a new range of non-fiction books. Pelican was born. Allen Lane said he 'believed in the existence in this country of a vast reading public for intelligent books at a low price, and staked everything on it'. The gamble paid off. Customers queued in the streets for the first Pelican, George Bernard Shaw's The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Socialism, which sold a million copies in six weeks. In the years to come Pelican Books - including H. G. Wells' A Short History of the World, Freud's Psychopathology of Everyday Life and J. K. Galbraith's The Affluent Society, as well as guides to everything from jazz to witchcraft, guerrilla warfare to smashing atoms - would educate a generation. They became, in Lane's words, 'the true everyman's library for the twentieth century'.
