The Ghost of Rome: Volume I - The Gothic Wars

by Virgil Cain

It was famously stated by the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes that “the Papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof”.“The Ghost of Rome” explores that concept in detail, utilizing a character-driven narrative to bring life to the final years of the greatest empire the world has ever known. It is the rare work of fiction that informs even as it entertains, illuminating an era that is often derided as the decline of an empire rather than the birth of a kingdom.As Rome fell into disrepair, the Kingdom of Christ emerged. It was a transition so seamless that one can only be intrigued by the machinations that allowed the improbable rise of Christianity from a lone hilltop in Judea to conquer the Roman world inside of 350 yea...

To Build a Castle: My Life as a Dissenter

by Vladimir Bukovsky

A major document in the literature of human rights, this now-legendary memoir, by one of the most prominent of the Soviet-era Russian dissidents, was a world-wide bestseller when first published in 1978.At the age of 20, as punishment for his political protests, Vladimir Bukovsky was falsely declared insane and committed to a psychiatric hospital—standard practice for communism's critics in 1963. But the quack doctors and brutal guards who kept him captive didn't realize: Bukovsky wasn't locked up with them. They were locked up with Bukovsky.In this compelling, beautifully-crafted memoir, Bukovsky details with equal parts burning outrage and bitter humor the cruel theater of life for Soviet prisoners of conscience. But he also recounts how he found his inner truth and strength, and built...

Wreck of the Whale Ship Essex - Illustrated - NARRATIVE OF THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY AND DISTRESSING SHIPWRECK OF THE WHALE-SHIP ESSEX: Original News Stories of Whale Attacks & Cannibals

by Owen Chase

In one of the most spellbinding accounts of men who go down to the sea in ships, the modern reader is given a seat in the whale boat of Owen Chase as he and his fellow crew and their Captain make way in three boats after the wreckage of the Whaleship Essex.
The account of how the Essex was wrecked inspired the infamous book Moby Dick and countless movies, including the newest, In the Heart of the Sea.
The perils of sea, storms, nefarious intent of evil men and fate combined to bring an end to a long whaling voyage – typically hard and grueling enough without suffering an attack by a furious and vengeful sperm whale.
The story, told in a first-person narrative by Owen Chase, the first mate of the Essex, was first published in 1821 and served to inspire Herman Melville ...

All the Presidents' Memories: How they Reconstruct the Past, Manage the Present and Shape the Future; Volume I

by Henry Roth

The memories described in this book reflect not only how eleven American Presidents remembered what happened to them in their youth, but also a kind of psychological shorthand of their beliefs, attitudes, cognitive biases and foibles. A negative memory may have provided guidance in situations the President viewed as dangerous, whereas a positive memory may have provided guidance in situations viewed as promising. By examining the early memories of the Presidents, it is possible to discover how, for example: Abraham Lincoln's amusing memory of a boyhood caper provided an unusual perspective on his character and his lasting appeal as a great storyteller;Ulysses S. Grant’s memory of a business transaction revealed a hidden vulnerability; Teddy Roosevelt's memory of a fantastic childhood adv...

by Osmanagich Ph.D., Sam

The surface of the Earth over the last two million years provides evidence of the occurrence of eighteen ice ages each lasting about a hundred thousand years. Between them there were short periods of warming, which lasted no more than twelve thousand years. Those were the times when new life cycles would begin.

We are rapidly approaching another ice age. Climate changes will intensify, cold regions will become even colder, warm regions even warmer. Another cycle will come to an end. The dominant civilization will come to an end and it will take many generations before another cycle starts over ...
