Mein Kampf: A Translation Controversy

Michael Ford

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...

Stoned: Jewelry, Obsession, and How Desire Shapes the World

Aja Raden

Stoned: Jewelry, Obsession, and How Desire Shapes the World by Aja Raden

As entertaining as it is incisive, Stoned is a raucous journey through the history of human desire for what is rare, and therefore precious.

What makes a stone a jewel? What makes a jewel priceless? And why do we covet beautiful things? In this brilliant account of how eight jewels shaped the course of history, jeweler and scientist Aja Raden tells an original and often startling story about our unshakeable addiction to beauty and the darker side of human desire.

What moves the world is what moves each of us: desire. Jewelry

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

Austin Aneke

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

Niccolo Machiavelli

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

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

Sun Tzu

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...

In addition to a deep disaffection with British rule, the rebellion was also a burning sectarian resentment against the land owning...

The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States

Pauline Maier

The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States by Pauline MaierThe Declaration of Independence was the promise of a representative government; the Constitution was the fulfillment of that promise.

On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress issued a unanimous declaration: the thirteen North American colonies would be the thirteen United States of America, free and independent of Great Britain.

Dane Mills Bosley

Chris R. Pownall

Dane Mills Bosley by Chris R. PownallThis book provides an industrial and social history of the people and business activities at two mills in rural Cheshire, known as 'Dane Mills Bosley'. This is where author Chris R. Pownall served his engineering apprenticeship between 1959 and 1966. The very fond memories of that period have prompted him to write about the culture, as well as the industrial processes in operation at that time. There is a brief over-view of the history of the mills, which date back to the mid-eighteenth century. They were originally constructed by the famous industrialist Charles Roe, who engaged the services...

Wild Strawberries

Derek Smith

Wild Strawberries by Derek SmithThis is the true story of a nine year old boy who, at the height of the Birmingham blitz, is transported from his 'all mod cons' big city home to the safety of a house in a remote south Staffordshire hamlet, a mile and a half from nowhere, where he finds himself living in domestic and sanitary conditions that have remained unaltered for over a thousand years - the culture shock to end all culture shocks. 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...

Undiscovered Dundee

Brian King

Undiscovered Dundee by Brian KingWelcome to Dundee. A modern city at first glance, but with an illustrious past that's not always easy to see. 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...
