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.

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...

The Malabar Rebellion

The Malabar Rebellion by M. GangadharanThe Malabar Rebellion is an account of the historical and immediate circumstances of the Malabar Rebellion (also known as 'Moplah Rebellion'), the events of the rebellion, followed by an analytical assessment. The study shows that this uprising in 1921 is basically political (anti-British) in motivation. 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...

Decades of regeneration, and sometimes dubious progress, have seen to that. But if you look a little closer, dig a little deeper, you will find a hidden city alive with history. Undiscovered Dundee uncovers the city's lost inheritance, its forgotten disasters and forsaken landmarks, the heroes and villains that time has erased, the citizens who stayed and made a difference to their city and those who left and made an impact on the world beyond. Sometimes the story ventures far from Dundee...

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,...

It describes his acceptance of and assimilation into the country ways of life; his struggle for an education in a village school built to house ninety local children, but then grossly overcrowded...
