History of the World in 100 Objects Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Neil MacGregor's "A History of the World in 100 Objects" takes a bold, original approach to human history, exploring past civilizations through the objects that defined them. Encompassing a grand sweep of human history, "A History of the World in 100 Objects" begins with one of the earliest surviving objects made by human hands, a chopping tool from the Olduvai gorge in Africa, and ends with objects which characterise the world we live in today. Seen through MacGregor's eyes, history is a kaleidoscope - shifting, interconnected, constantly surprising, and shaping our world today in ways that most of us have never imagined. A stone pillar tells us about a great Indian emperor preaching tolerance to his people; Spanish pieces of eight tell us about the beginning of a global currency; and an early Victorian tea-set speaks to us about the impact of empire. An intellectual and visual feast, this is one of the most engrossing and unusual history books published in years. "Brilliant, engagingly written, deeply researched". (Mary Beard, "Guardian"). "A triumph: hugely popular, and rightly lauded as one of the most effective and intellectually ambitious initiatives in the making of 'public history' for many decades". ("Sunday Telegraph"). "Highly intelligent, delightfully written and utterly absorbing". (Timothy Clifford, "Spectator"). "This is a story book, vivid and witty, shining with insights, connections, shocks and delights". (Gillian Reynolds, "Daily Telegraph"). Neil MacGregor has been Director of the British Museum since August 2002. His latest book, "Shakespeare's Restless World" is an enthralling exploration of Shakespeare's world, and of the minds of his audiences, based on Neil MacGregor's new 20-part BBC Radio 4 series. MacGregor was previously Director of the National Gallery in London from 1987 to 2002.

History of Business Depressions (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The History of Business Depressions Of our one hundred and thirty years as a nation thirty-three years have been wasted in disastrous and ruinous depression and perhaps an equal number have been marked by over-spending, extravagance and waste of wealth. The remainder have been years of normalcy. Depressions and trade upheavals have swayed the course of humanity in its struggles equally as much as has war. The progress of the human race is marked by periods of economic distress when want, poverty, and unemployment set the minds of men to thinking. These were periods when convictions were sharply and vigorously stated and men, by force of extremity, took their complaint to the fountain head. Great changes in government, leading to the emancipation of mankind and to the democracy which exists today were the result of movements that grew out of economic adversity. Were it not for the demands of commerce we should probably still be in a state of feudalism. When the economic status of the people became debased to such an extent that it became unbearable, they demanded reform and a degree of prosperity, with the alternative of revolt. When bread is scarce, and his pillow a stone and his family in need, man seeks to find the cause. In times of adversity he studies hard to find a philosophy in life. He ponders dubiously over the promise of the Psalmist, "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want." Histories relating the glories of nations that have risen to power are classic. They rise to lofty heights; they light the paths of time. But when they come to the gloomy vales of economic decline and depression, where ten pages have been given to glory a line is sufficient to describe the distress that followed and the lessons to be drawn. Education along this line is of the utmost importance. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

We all know that the Battle of Hastings was fought in 1066, London's 'one big burning blaze' tore through the capital in 1666 and that Britain declared war on Nazi Germany in 1939, but many of us remember the most important moments in our history by the folk stories which are attached to them. So we remember Henry VIII for his wives rather than the Reformation and Charles II for climbing a tree rather than the Civil War. But if we set aside these stories, do we really know what happened when, and why it's so important? Which came first, the Bronze Age or the Stone Age? Why did the Romans play such a significant role in our past? And how did a nation as small as Britain come to command such a vast empire? Here, Tim Taylor and the team of expert historians behind Channel 4's Time Team, answer these questions and many more, cataloguing British history in a way that is accessible to all. This book will give you and your family a clear and concise view of what happened when, and why.

'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

Recorded over a 129-day period beginning in December 1966, Sgt. Pepper saw the band developing the production techniques of their previous album, Revolver. Martin's innovative and lavish production included the orchestra usage and hired musicians ordered by the band. Genres such as music hall, jazz, rock and roll, western classical, and traditional Indian music are covered. The album cover art depicts the band posing in front of a collage of their favourite celebrities, and has been widely acclaimed and imitated. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was a worldwide critical and commercial success, spending a total of 27 weeks at the top of the UK Album Chart and 15 weeks at #1 on the American Billboard 200. A defining album in the emerging psychedelic rock style, Sgt. Pepper was critically acclaimed upon release and won four Grammy awards in 1968. Sgt.

Sculptures of Jeddah BOOTH CLIBBORN EDITIONS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

When Mohamed Said Farsi became Mayor of Jeddah in 1972, at a pivotal moment in the Saudi Arabian city's history, he set himself the task of not only creating a modern city, but also to include in the concept a plan for public art: "To bring delight to the citizen, to give him a sense of wonder and also to stir his sense of history." Works were commissioned from world famous artists such as Jean Arp, Cesar, Alexander Calder, Eila Hiltunen, Julio Lafuente, Jacques Lipschitz, Joan Miro, Henry Moore, Arnaldo Pomodoro and Victor Vasarely, in a variety of media, including bronze, steel, concrete, marble and stone. Other sculptures were made by artists of the region from historical artifacts and recycled scrap metal, some from cars and planes. This book allows the world a glimpse into a city not easily visited and shows Saudi Arabia as a place of vision and innovation in the arts. Jeddah has grown since 1972 and now, in 2013, some 24 major pieces are being restored and re sited by the Abdul Latif Jameel Foundation and the Municipality of Jeddah in a new Open Air Museum on the sea front, known as the Corniche. As well as telling the story of the restoration and relocation of the 24 sculptures, this book also examines the history of this transformative moment in Jeddah and includes an extensive interview with Mayor Farsi and Fady Jameel of the Abdul Latif Jameel Foundation. It shows some 140 of the other important works situated around the city together with the views of the local community on living with this unique collection of 20th century public art.

The Magus has proved to be the most sought after set of books on magic and alchemy ever published. There is very good reason for this. These books are powerful, and were considered so dangerous that for many years, rare copies could only be found in certain libraries, locked away from the general public and from those who would use (or misuse) its power. The original set of books was first published in 1801 by its author, Francis Barrett, who had an extensive background in the medieval and occult sciences. He spent many years of diligent study before releasing them. His premise for the material, that is, before putting anything into these books, Barrett first subjected the various theories to certain tests that had to be "substantiated by nature, truth, and experiment" first. They were written for those seeking the key to the philosopher's stone and the powers of magic. The illustrations in this book were taken from ancient and medieval texts, magical tables, planetary tables, talismans and images of angels and demons. Book One covers natural magic, amulets and charms, potions, precious stones, lights, candles, alchemy, the philosopher's stone, transmutation, the four elements, numbers, and planets. Book Two covers magnetic powers. Cabalistic magic, the names of angels and spirits, the performing of invocations, conjuring spirits, magic circles, receiving oracles in dreams, positive and evil spirits, and concludes with a major biographical sections on the great magicians of history.

The screenplay of the brilliant new film about rock 'n' roll journalism, from the writer/director of "Jerry Maguire." Inspired by his own start in journalism as a teenage reporter for "Rolling Stone," Cameron Crowe has created a coming-of-age story that is both funny and moving-and laced with sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. Set in 1973 and starring Frances McDormand, Billy Crudup, and Noah Taylor, Crowe's new film tells the story of a fifteen-year-old boy whose dream of becoming a rock journalist comes true when "Rolling Stone" sends him on tour with the up-and-coming rock band Stillwater-loosely based on Led Zeppelin-over the objections of his protective mother. Crowe brings the same wry humor he brought to "Jerry Maguire" as well as the brilliant evocations of teen life that animated his earlier cult film "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" to chronicle and celebrate a pivotal moment in rock history-and one teenage boy's place in it.

"Delbruck is internationally regarded as the first modern military historian. History of the Art of War, considered a classic, is his foundational achievement. Renfroe's translation retains the spirited erudition of the original German and renders it into elegant and readable English. Beyond a doubt a landmark in twentieth-century historical literature."--Arden Bucholz, author of Hans Delbruck and the German Military Establishment By the fifteenth century the Swiss method of warfare, in which disciplined foot soldiers fought in tightly formed units, was being imitated. The Germans and Spanish took notice when in 1479 Archduke Maximilian and his victorious Flemish infantrymen used their long pikes to prevent the mounted French knights from charging. The era of modern warmaking was at hand. In this last volume of his classic history of the art of war, Hans Delbruck considers new developments: the use of gunpowder, the invention of firearms, and the employment of noisy large cannon that shot stone and, later, iron balls. After reviewing the establishment of a European infantry, Delbruck discusses the transformation of loose confederations of knights into cavalry (well developed by the last Huguenot wars), the organization of fighting mercenaries (followed by wives and prostitutes), and the changing of mercenary bands into standing armies. The Dawn of Modern Warfare is colored by larger-than-life personalities: Niccolo Machiavelli, the theoretician of the new art of war; Maurice of Orange, renovator of the art of drill and father of military discipline; Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, perfecter of infantry tactics; Oliver Cromwell of England, reorganizer of a citizen militia into a professional army; and Frederick the Great and Napoleon Bonaparte, military strategists par excellence. As he did in the previous three volumes, all available as Bison Books, Hans Delbruck analyzes many famous battles. Walter J. Renfroe Jr. has translated into English a work that set a standard for scholarship when it was first published in 1920.

Fog of War Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This collection is a timely reconsideration of the intersection between two of the dominant events of twentieth-century American history, the upheaval wrought by the Second World War and the social revolution brought about by the African American struggle for equality. Scholars from a wide range of fields explore the impact of war on the longer history of African American protest from many angles: from black veterans to white segregationists, from the rural South to northern cities, from popular culture to federal politics, and from the American confrontations to international connections. It is well known that World War II gave rise to human rights rhetoric, discredited a racist regime abroad, and provided new opportunities for African Americans to fight, work, and demand equality at home. It would be all too easy to assume that the war was a key stepping stone to the modern civil rights movement. But the authors show that in reality the momentum for civil rights was not so clear cut, with activists facing setbacks as well as successes and their opponents finding ways to establish more rigid defenses for segregation. While the war set the scene for a mass movement, it also narrowed some of the options for black activists.
