The Pagan & The Jew: The Jewish Rebellion against the Roman Empire

by Terrance Williamson

Rebellion! Against the greatest of odds, the Jews have driven out their oppressors and reclaimed Judea from the Romans. With fury, the tyrannical Emperor Nero sends Vespasian, a general tested in the crucible of combat, to crush the uprising with a cruelty beyond comparison. Vespasian’s ambition, however, far outreaches that of defeating a rebellion; his sights are set on the throne. Feigning obedience, and with a scheme developed by his son, Titus, they take upon the martial mantle with the hopes of securing the east under their banner and enacting a plot to overthrow Nero. Matters are only complicated when Titus falls in love with a Jewish princess, Bernice, who helps him to understand the plight of the Hebrews. Preparing for Vespasian’s arrival is an underestimated opponent named Jo...

Computer Curious: Stories and lessons from the dawn of the digital age in africa

by Marc Maxmeister

Back in the early 2000s, before Facebook existed, before Google was a verb, African youths were flocking to the Internet. I trekked across Gambia, Senegal, and Ghana in search of what drew them to the Internet. After visits to 30 schools and hundreds of Interviews, I discovered that curiosity and a drive to create in a culture where education stifles creativity was the deeper reason behind the allure of the Internet.

In this book I focus on why and how computer culture evolved in Africa, and wrap it in my own adventures of exotic discomfort on the open road, ill-conceived conceits to bring Internet to remote villages, rocket yams in the name of science, wandering through a refugee camp to deliver a letter, hobnobbing with power mongers in the capitol, and generally seeing how ...

Middlebrow Modernism: Britten’s Operas and the Great Divide (California Studies in 20th-Century Music Book 24)

by Christopher Chowrimootoo

At publication date, a free ebook version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. Situated at the intersections of twentieth-century music history, historiography, and aesthetics, Middlebrow Modernism uses Benjamin Britten’s operas to illustrate the ways in which composers, critics, and audiences mediated the “great divide” between modernism and mass culture. Reviving mid-century discussions of the middlebrow, Christopher Chowrimootoo demonstrates how Britten’s works allowed audiences to have their modernist cake and eat it: to revel in the pleasures of consonance, lyricism, and theatrical spectacle even while enjoying the prestige that came from rejecting them. B...

A Survivor Remembers the Holocaust: The Amazing True Story of Leon Sperling

Disclaimer. This is not a book, but rather a 10 page narrative, told to me by a very special man, of perhaps the most riveting, emotional, and courageous account of escaping certain death from the hands of a highly civilized and advanced race of people inexhaustibly determined to exterminate him, 14 year old boy, and his entire race. It is placed here at the Amazon minimum which I wish was zero, simply to tell his story, and remind future generations of the humanity and inhumanity we as a people are capable of, and the hope that each day, we choose the former. Please download and read, and if it doesn't leave you a better person, a changed person, with a need to share it with a loved one, please simply hit refund....

Zeromotor Man: The Victorian who invented the ice-rink and sold perpetual motion to the US Navy

by Steve Humphrey

On 26th February 1881 Professor John Gamgee filed a patent application. Gamgee called his invention the ‘Zeromotor’ and he had convinced the Chief Engineer of the US Navy that it would enable ships to operate without fuel, drawing energy from the sea instead. It was the first and last time the United States Patent Office granted a patent for a perpetual motion machine.
The career path of this maverick inventor would be impossible today. Born and raised in Florence, he was initially an outspoken and forward thinking veterinarian. He ran his own college and organised the first ever international veterinary conference. During the Cattle Plague of 1865 his controversial opinions on contagion and germ theory made him the target of nationwide abuse and ridicule. Although ultimately pro...

THE ART OF MAKING WINE: According to the Doctrine of Chaptal.

They were the best of times, they were the worst of times. The French Revolution had just given way to the Napoleonic Empire, while another Revolution was brewing- or at least fermenting- in vineyards all over France. "Citizen" Chaptal, Minister of the Interior, scholar, and renaissance man, introduced a revolution in wine making. To this day chaptalization is the term used for the use of calcium carbonate and sugar to improve the quality of wine. This is the simple manual that was sent out to vintners so that wine across France could be transformed from the often sour mess that it had once been to the reliably tasty and durable beverage we all know and love today. This book watershed moment in wine history, and even provides enough information for the enterprising wino to begin his o...

There Were No Cats in America: "An American Tail" Enters Trump’s America

by Adam M. DeSimone

Using the 1986 animated film “An American Tail” as a framing device, this work explores the immigrant experience of émigrés who lived in the United States during the Gilded Age. While the film itself celebrates the arrival of the furry, lovable, Mousekewitz family to the U.S., this essay comments on the evolution of U.S. immigration policy from the late 19th to early 21st centuries, with special attention paid to the National Origins Act, the Chinese Exclusion Act, and to President Trump’s 2017 “Muslim bans.” Major push and pull factors associated with immigration are examined as well; a comparison between the socioeconomic conditions of the Gilded Age and modern era follow. In this essay, the author argues that the Trump administration’s views on immigration are similar to t...

Ancient Terracottas from South Italy and Sicily in the J. Paul Getty Museum

by Maria Lucia Ferruzza

In the ancient world, terracotta sculpture was ubiquitous. Readily available and economical—unlike stone suitable for carving—clay allowed artisans to craft figures of remarkable variety and expressiveness. Terracottas from South Italy and Sicily attest to the prolific coroplastic workshops that supplied sacred and decorative images for sanctuaries, settlements, and cemeteries. Sixty terracottas are investigated here by noted scholar Maria Lucia Ferruzza, comprising a selection of significant types from the Getty’s larger collection—life-size sculptures, statuettes, heads and busts, altars, and decorative appliqués. In addition to the comprehensive catalogue entries, the publication includes a guide to the full collection of over one thousand other figurines and molds from the reg...

I See Nothing But the Horrors of a Civil War

by Alexander Cain

It is commonly stated history is written by the victor and the American Revolution is no exception. As a result of the rebel triumph in the War for Independence, loyalists historically have been placed in a negative light. In countless works and popular culture, loyalists have been portrayed as inept people whose blind faith to the English crown led to their downfall. Unfortunately, such an erroneous stereotype only trivializes the struggles of the American loyalist. In 2014, Author Alexander Cain released the first edition of "I See Nothing But the Horrors of a Civil War." Now, five years later, this acclaimed book has been rewritten to reflect the recent discovery of countless new historical documents, town records and historical artifacts. This is the story of the men, women and childre...

Thomas Paine: A Life from Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Thomas Paine* * *Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.The mind of Thomas Paine was gifted to the American Revolution at just the right time. Right when the fervor of the revolutionary spirit was beginning to subside, the pen of Thomas Paine came along and ignited the fires of American liberty once again. Yet decades later, when Paine returned to the American shores that he helped liberate, he was met with a bitter homecoming. Paine had arrived right on the heels of his association with bloody upheavals in revolutionary France and the publication of his unapologetically anti-Christian tracts, which did go over well in an America swept by the Second Great Awakening. Both of these aspects of his intellectual life made him an insufferabl...

Ottoman Art of War: Power Tactics & Strategy For Today

Ottoman Empire was Europe's first welfare state based on privately funded charities. The Empire's trade pact with France was history's first free trade agreement. Like the United States the Ottoman Empire attracted talent, know-h...

Chinatown No More: Taiwan Immigrants in Contemporary New York (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)

by Hsiang-Shui Chen

By focusing on the social and cultural life of post-1965 Taiwan immigrants in Queens, New York, this book shifts Chinese American studies from ethnic enclaves to the diverse multiethnic neighborhoods of Flushing and Elmhurst. As Hsiang-shui Chen documents, the political dynamics of these settlements are entirely different from the traditional closed Chinese communities; the immigrants in Queens think of themselves as living in "worldtown," not in a second Chinatown. Drawing on interviews with members of a hundred households, Chen brings out telling aspects of demography, immigration experience, family life, and gender roles, and then turns to vivid, humanistic portraits of three families. Chen also describes the organizational life of the Chinese in Queens with a lively account of the powe...
