Mein Kampf: A Translation Controversy

Mein Kampf: A Translation Controversy by Michael FordThey Got Mein Kampf Wrong! Adolf Hitler's book, Mein Kampf, has been controversial for many reasons but one of the greatest controversies has been over the English translations. We have discovered that these older versions contain mistranslations, inaccurate translations, and outright embellishment. Mein Kampf: A Translation Controversy takes a look at Mein Kampf like no one has before and explains many elements that have confused readers. We also reveal many passages that were quietly omitted from past English translations. I reviewed and checked every line and for the first time, Mein Kampf...

Challenges of Development in Africa: The Missing Technology Link, the Morbid Corruption Pandemic

Challenges of Development in Africa: The Missing Technology Link, the Morbid Corruption Pandemic by Austin AnekeUndoubtedly, Africa has experienced its fair share of pains during the process of world development. As it remains the most underdeveloped continent, with disproportionate levels of intimidation, domination and all that goes with underdevelopment, this book attempts to discover why. While even Asia, an ex-colonised part of the world has evolved into tigers, Africa remains the epicentre for bad policies, corruption, financial insolvency, poor governance and poverty. The author recognises that the negative impacts of colonialism on Africa are massive, but voices that ex-colonies like India and...

The Prince

The Prince by Niccolo MachiavelliHere is the world's most famous master plan for seizing and holding power.

Astonishing in its candor, The Prince even today remains a disturbingly realistic and prophetic work on what it takes to be a prince . . . a king . . . a president. When, in 1512, Machiavelli was removed from his post in his beloved Florence, he resolved to set down a treatise on leadership that was practical, not idealistic. In The Prince what he envisioned would be unencumbered by ordinary ethical and moral values; his prince would be man and beast, fox and lion. Today, this small sixteenth-century masterpiece has become...

The Golden Sayings of Epictetus

The Golden Sayings of Epictetus by EpictetusEpictetus was a Greek Stoic philosopher. He was probably born a slave at Hierapolis, Phrygia (present day Pamukkale, Turkey), and lived in Rome until his exile to Nicopolis in northwestern Greece, where he lived most of his life and died. His teachings were noted down and published by his pupil Arrian in his Discourses. Philosophy, he taught, is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline. To Epictetus, all external events are determined by fate, and are thus beyond our control, but we can accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately. Individuals, however, are responsible for their...

The Art of War - The Oldest Military Treatise in the World

The Art of War - The Oldest Military Treatise in the World by Sun TzuThe Art of War is one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world. It has had a huge influence on Eastern military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu recognized the importance of positioning in strategy and that position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment. He taught that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through a to-do list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Planning works in a controlled...

It was the culmination of a series of revolts by the Mappila Muslims in Malabar that occurred frequently throughout the 19th century and the early 20th century. In addition to a deep disaffection with British rule, the rebellion was also a burning sectarian resentment against the land owning...

The Lonely Warrior: The Life and Times of Robert S. Abbott, Founder of the Chicago Defender

The Lonely Warrior: The Life and Times of Robert S. Abbott, Founder of the Chicago Defender by Roi Ottley

In May 1905 Robert S. Abbott started publishing the Chicago Defender. The paper attacked racial injustice, particularly lynching in the south. The Defender did not use the words “Negro” or “black” in its pages. Instead, African Americans were referred to as “the Race” and black men and women as “Race men and Race women.” Many places in the south effectively banned the paper, especially when, during World War I, Abbott actively tried to convince southern blacks to migrate to the north. Abbott managed to get railroad porters to carry his papers south and he ran articles, editorials,...

Alarming conservative critics with the sophisticated modernism of his music, he nonetheless won steadily increasing popularity with the opera-going public. But Catalani's entire adult life was a grim and increasingly hopeless battle with tuberculosis; the year after his greatest triumph with La Wally (1892), he died at just 39, leaving the future of Italian opera to other men, all of...
