"There is nothing impossible to him that will but try." - Alexander the Great

The role of Macedonia and the Macedonians in the ancient world is apparent to those with even a cursory knowledge of the period. After all, Alexander the Great and his father, Philip II, were both Macedonians, and most know at least a little about their violent struggles to conquer Greece and the Near East. However, Macedonian history began long before Philip II and Alexander III and continued for some time after they were gone. Thus, in many ways, the historical memory of Macedonia and the Macedonians is the victim of historical myopia which is, in part, the result of popular entertainment. Alexander the Great makes for great fiction, so the more "tedious" aspects of Macedonian culture are often overlooked.

An examination of ancient Macedonian culture, from its earliest known references to the arrival of the Romans, reveals that the Greeks' northern neighbors played an integral role in the development of Hellenic civilization. Although many of the traditional Greeks may not have considered the Macedonians to be fellow Hellenes at first, they were forced to accept them due to the Macedonian's superior military strength.

By the time Alexander the Great had led his army across the Persian Empire, he and his fellow Macedonians had been, for the most part, accepted as Greeks by most other Greeks, but it was a long process. As the Athenians developed their government and philosophies, the Macedonians dedicated themselves to the art of war. Because of this, ancient Macedonia was, in many ways, a stark contrast to the republics and democracies of classical Greece. The Macedonian government was a traditional monarchy where only the strongest of the kings were able to survive assassination attempts and palace coups. The Macedonian kings were also expected to lead their armies into war, which they did almost continuously.

Eventually, Macedonian culture slowly began to adopt many of their southern neighbors' attributes, and likewise, the Greek city-states came to see the Macedonians as less barbarian and more Greek. By the time the Romans had conquered Greece in the 2nd century BCE, Macedonia had been viewed by most Greeks and nearly all Romans as nothing more than the northern reaches of Greece.

More importantly, the Macedonians were arguably the most responsible for spreading Hellenism across the world than even the Greeks and Romans. When Alexander died at the age of 32, he had made himself the most powerful man in the world, and his dominions stretched from the Punjab to modern Albania, making him one of the most successful conquerors in history. Alexander and his successors Hellenized as far as they reached, from Egypt to Persia and parts of Asia Minor, and their influence is still readily visible. Anthropologists have found that some of the earliest Buddha statues constructed in India bear an uncanny resemblance to Greek depictions of Apollo. Further west, much of Alexander's old empire was eventually conquered in the following centuries by Rome, including Ptolemaic Egypt, but instead of ending the Hellenistic culture, the Roman Empire further reinforced it. Having conquered Greece itself around 100 BCE, the Roman Empire heavily assimilated the Greeks' culture into its own. Latin was an offshoot of the Greeks' language, the Romans' mythology was nearly identical, and Roman poetry, literature and art all closely resembled what was produced to their east in the preceding centuries. As such, the Macedonians played a vital role in the course of Western Civilization.

Ancient Macedonia: The History and Legacy of Alexander the Great and the Macedonians in Antiquity examines one of the most important ancient powers throughout its long and illustrious history.

Quran Made Easy: Complete English Translation with Inline Commentary

No.1 Bestselling English Quran Translation in the Kindle Store ****

*** Now also includes the full Arabic text of the Quran ***

Quran Made Easy is a modern, easy to understand english translation of the Holy Quran with inline commentary. This is the only english language translation that includes translation and inline commentary and the Arabic verses. The language is simple and easy to understand and unlike other translations leaves no room for ambiguity and misunderstanding. The work is a recent project and does not use "old" english or difficult to understand words.

This is the complete english version which includes all 30 sections of the Quran as well as the inline commentary and introduction to the Quran.

Translators foreword:

In preparing this translation of The Quraan, the dilemma was whether to use very ornate and elegant language which could compromise clear understanding for most people or to use a simple and clear style of language. Because the intention was to make The Quraan clear to every person, the second style was chosen, even though it may at times lack the dignity and lofty tone. It was also chosen because thousands of English-speaking people who are not very proficient in the language found the lofty language of other translations difficult to understand. This translation caters for their needs by providing where necessary synonyms between brackets. It is the language of only the Divine that can combine exceptional eloquence and ease of understanding.

Unlike in previous translations, footnotes are not used in this translation. Rather the explanations which have been given between brackets, serve multiple purposes. Firstly, they save the reader the need to look for the corresponding footnote which often hampers one's train of thought and understanding. Secondly, the explanations enhance the meaning of a verse by adding text which is often hidden. This is especially necessary in a translation of the Quraan because the Arabic text is extremely compact and rich in meaning, and to render the same meaning in another language requires the use of many more words. By using words between brackets, the essential text of The Quraan is not confused with the additional words that are required to promote understanding.

Two Sieges of Vienna by the Turks

The fall of Constantinople in 1453 was followed by a rapid extension of the arms and power of the conqueror, Mahomet II. Within a short period he subjected Persia, the whole of Greece and the Morea, most of the islands of the Archipelago, and Trebisond on the coast of Asia Minor, the seat of the Greek empire of the Comnenes. The last of that dynasty, Daniel Comnenus, he took prisoner, and shortly after caused him with his family to be executed for the alleged offence, probably a mere pretext, of an understanding with the Persians...

The Dangerous Art of Alchemy: A fascinating free e-short accompaniment to The Raven’s Head

A free e-short from 'Queen of the Dark Ages' Karen Maitland, author of Company of Liars, which explores medieval Dark Arts practices and the mysterious history of alchemy.

**Includes real recipes devised by medieval alchemists and a free sample of Karen's gothic historical thriller, The Raven's Head**

'An atmospheric and dark story' The Times on The Raven's Head

The black object inside the flask was the head of a raven. Its beak was opened wide as if it cried out a warning, and from its mouth a long forked scarlet tongue quivered in the flickering candle flame, like a viper poised to strike.

Alchemy. The word conjures up images of magic, mystery and dark dungeons full of bubbling potions, with shadowy figures poring over ancient manuscripts in pursuit of the secret formula that will allow them to turn base metal into pure gold. And, for centuries, this image of alchemy was not far from the truth...

Take science and politics. Mix with desire and desperation. Leave to intensify. And you shall have the legendary world of the medieval alchemists, expertly drawn by the Queen of the Dark Ages.

What readers are saying about Dangerous Art of Alchemy:

'A book to delve into over and over again'

'A fascinating read full of information on this strange system of beliefs'

'A fun book that will whet your appetite for The Raven's Head'

Timeline of Ancient History

Ancient History is the period bridging Pre-History and Antiquity. The Timeline begins with the advent of writing and the invention of the wheel, two technological innovations that will allow for increases in communication, construction, and warfare. The Pre-History age of hunting/gathering ends as settled villages form into city-states that form into great empires, and intellectual/technological/political progress gains a momentum that will propel the peoples of the world into the cultural flowering of Antiquity.

"If you are to prosper in this world of secrets and powers, you must understand many things that happened before your time. How else can we understand our own time, or predict what may come?"

Clear and concise, the Timeline of Ancient History provides the dates, explanations and imagery of key events in ancient history. From Mesopotamia to Ancient China to the rise of the Greeks, the Timeline of Ancient History covers the period from 3500 BCE to 776 BCE.

Andrew Jackson: A Life From Beginning to End (One Hour History US Presidents Book 6)

Andrew Jackson

Old Hickory. King Mob. The Peoples President. King Andrew I. The nicknames by which the seventh president is known reflect the different facets of his complicated nature. He believed in the rights of the common man because he came from humble beginnings and distrusted the vested institutions of power. The first American president born to immigrant parents, Jackson was the embodiment of the new blood which infused the American spirit in the early 19th century.

Inside you will read about...

? The Birth of a Legend

? Jackson the General

? Jackson and Politics

? Jackson's Home Life

? Jackson's First Term

? Jackson's Second Term

? Jackson Returns to Tennessee

? Jackson's Legacy

Like his country, he was both ruthless and chivalrous, hot-tempered and steadfast, an authoritarian and a believer in equality. Jackson cannot be described in one-dimensional terms because there were layers to the Tennessee frontier president. Jacksonian democracy invigorated the national government and became a foundation of the modern political process. Controversial and complicated, Andrew Jacksons life is worthy of examination. To understand America, it's vital to understand Andrew Jackson."

The Light in the Himalayas, Chronicles of Discovery

Discover the truth of a profound legend that has endured from the very dawn of civilization, a captivating revelation of the existence of a mysterious world hidden deep in the wilderness of the Great Himalayan Range.Years ago, on an extended trek into a closed and largely unexplored inner region of the majestic frozen fortress of the Himalayas, in an isolated valley surrounded by vast snow fields and towering ice peaks, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on a beautiful small village where he encountered remarkable men and women, introduced to him as "masters" and "adepts."This chronicle, The Light in the Himalayas, contains detailed narratives of Hawking's experiences, including first-hand accounts of the psychokinetic abilities he witnessed and in-depth descriptions of his discussions with the masters and sages he met, revealing the esoteric knowledge that made such extraordinary abilities possible.Scholars relate that the first mention of this fabled realm appears in the scriptures of the pre-Tibetan Zhang Zhung culture which arose some 4000 years ago on the remote Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Compelling references continue through the millennia in numerous esoteric texts: the sacred B'on treaties, manuscripts of the Kalki lore, the Puranas, the earliest texts of the Kalachakra Laghutantra (c. 500 B.C.), in the even older Kalachakra Mulatantra (c. 900 B.C.), and in the ancient wisdom traditions of civilizations throughout the Himalayan regions of Asia and beyond.The Zhang Zhung and Tibetan scriptures refer to the mysterious world as Shambhala I lam-yig, B'on treaties as Olmolungring, Hindu histories as Aryavarth, Chinese as Hsi Tien, and Russian traditions as Belovoyde.In an esoteric treatise composed in the early 1500s by Ensapa Lobsang Dondrup, the Third Panchen Lama describes his remarkable visit to a land of wise masters hidden deep in the Himalayas. A rare manuscript written in 1592 by Antonio Monserrate, a Spanish missionary to the court of the Mughal emperor Akbar, speaks of his experiences in a remote valley in the high mountains where great sages reside. A remarkably similar account is found as recently as the late 1700s, written by the esteemed Sixth Panchen Lama, Lobsang Palden Yeshe.From the Publisher: Our team at Wisdom Masters Press has worked diligently to compose a series of books based on the records explorer M.G. Hawking kept during his five years in remote regions of the Himalayas. This was a complex assignment; Hawking accumulated over 14,000 pages of hand-written journal notes, along with another 4,500 pages of field notes, all of which had to be sorted, cataloged, and organized in a manner conducive to producing books from such a treasury of material. Yet it was a fascinating if formidable task, one which so often filled us with a deep sense of wonder and inspiration.As entertaining as it is enlightening, this is a truly incomparable anthology for anyone interested in greatly expanding their knowledge and personal power, and notably fascinating for anyone interested in exploring the realities underlying the ancient accounts of a legendary world of light in the Himalayan wilderness.For more information, please see the 'Look Inside' feature on this page.

Research Guide to the Russian and Soviet Censuses (Studies in Soviet History and Society)

Taken together, the Russian census of 1897 and the Soviet censuses of 1926, 1959, 1970, and 1979 constitute the largest collection of empirical data available on that country, but until the publication of this book in 1986, the daunting complexity of that material prevented Western scholars from exploiting the censuses fully. This book is both a guide and a detailed index to these censuses. The first part of the book consists of eight essays by specialist on the USSR, six of them dealing with the use of census materials and the availability of data for research on ethnicity and language, marriage and the family, education and literacy, migration and organization, age structure, and occupations. The second part, a comprehensive index for all the published censuses, presents more than six hundred annotated entries for the census tables, a keyword index that enables researchers to find census data by subject, and a list of political-administrative units covered in each census.

Up From Slavery

My Bondage and My Freedom

My Bondage and My Freedom is an autobiographical slave narrative written by Frederick Douglass and published in 1855. It is the second of three autobiographies written by Douglass, and is mainly an expansion of his first (Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass), discussing in greater detail his transition from bondage to liberty. Following this liberation, Douglass, a former slave, went on to become a prominent abolitionist, speaker, author, and publisher. In his foreword to the 2003 Modern Library paperback edition, John Stauffer writes: "My Bondage and My Freedom," [is] a deep meditation on the meaning of slavery, race, and freedom, and on the power of faith and literacy, as well as a portrait of an individual and a nation a few years before the Civil War. As his narrative unfolds, Frederick Douglass-abolitionist, journalist, orator, and one of the most powerful voices to emerge from the American civil rights movement-transforms himself from slave to fugitive to reformer, leaving behind a legacy of social, intellectual, and political thought. The 1855 text includes Douglass's original Appendix, composed of excerpts from the author's speeches as well as a letter he wrote to his former master.

Christianity, Islam, and Orisa-Religion (The Anthropology of Christianity)

With a free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press's open access publishing program for monographs. The Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria are exceptional for the copresence among them of three religious traditions: Islam, Christianity, and the indigenous orisa religion. In this comparative study, at once historical and anthropological, Peel explores the intertwined character of the three religions and the dense imbrication of religion in all aspects of Yoruba history up to the present. For over 400 years, the Yoruba have straddled two geocultural spheres: one reaching north over the Sahara to the world of Islam, the other linking them to the Euro-American world via the Atlantic. These two external spheres were the source of contrasting cultural influences, notably those emanating from the world religions. However, the Yoruba not only imported Islam and Christianity but also exported their own orisa religion to the New World. Before the voluntary modern diaspora that has brought many Yoruba to Europe and the Americas, tens of thousands were sold as slaves in the New World, bringing with them the worship of the orisa. Peel offers deep insight into important contemporary themes such as religious conversion, new religious movements, relations between world religions, the conditions of religious violence, the transnational flows of contemporary religion, and the interplay between tradition and the demands of an ever-changing present. In the process, he makes a major theoretical contribution to the anthropology of world religions.

Imperial Matter

At publication date, a version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press' new open access publishing program. What is the role of the material world in shaping the tensions and paradoxes of imperial sovereignty? Scholars have long shed light on the complex processes of conquest, extraction, and colonialism under imperial rule. But imperialism has usually been cast as an exclusively human drama, one in which the world of matter does not play an active role. Lori Khatchadourian argues instead that things-from everyday objects to monumental buildings-profoundly shape social and political life under empire. Out of the archaeology of ancient Persia and the South Caucasus, Imperial Matter advances powerful new analytical approaches to the study of imperialism writ large and should be read by scholars working on empire across the humanities and social sciences.

Uprooted - A Vietnamese Family's Journey, 1935-1975

The ancient Vietnamese life in which Tung was raised is being torn apart. It is not enough to work hard and grow rice any more. Now every farmer in Mai Dong has to pick a side. The French or the Communists. "They are going to murder your father." Intelligence, humility and graft made Que an honorable figure in Mai Dong. His values ensured the family's survival through famine and flood. They will not protect him against the Communists, who need class-enemy victims for their land reform campaign. Tung becomes protector and provider for the family, who struggle to stay together as World War Two, the French Indochinese War and the American War tear his country apart over forty years. Based on a true story, Uprooted is an uplifting saga that spans three generations of a Vietnamese family's life or death struggle to survive in a changing landscape.

Each chapter here views Maa institutions through a different lens, exploring models relevant to a comprehensive analysis of social life.

Intellectuals in the Modern Islamic World: Transmission, Transformation and Communication (New Horizons in Islamic Studies)

Incorporating a rich series of case-studies covering a range of geographical areas, this collection of essays examines the history of modern intellectuals in the Islamic world throughout the twentieth century. The contributors reassess the typology and history of various scholars, providing significant diachronic analysis of the different forms of communication, learning, and authority.

Consisting of two parts, the volume focuses first on "al-Manar", the influential journal published between 1898 and 1935 that inspired much imagination and arguments among local intelligentsias all over the Islamic world. The second part discusses the formation, transmission and transformation of learning and authority, from the Middle East to Central and Southeast Asia. Constituting a milestone in comparative studies of the modern Islamic world, this book highlights the range of and transformation in the role of intellectuals in Islamic societies.

A History of Male Psychological Disorders in Britain, 1945-1980 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

This book is open access under a CC BY license. Statistically, women appear to suffer more frequently from depressive and anxiety disorders, featuring more regularly in primary care figures for consultations, diagnoses and prescriptions for psychotropic medication. This has been consistently so throughout the post-war period with current figures suggesting that women are approximately twice more likely to suffer from affective disorders than men. However, this book suggests that the statistical landscape reveals only part of the story. Currently, 75 per cent of suicides are among men, and this trend can also be traced back historically to data that suggests this has been the case since the beginning of the twentieth-century. This book suggests that male psychological illness was in fact no less common, but that it emerged in complex ways and was understood differently in response to prevailing cultural and medical forces. The book explores a host of medical, cultural and social factors that raise important questions about historical and current perceptions of gender and mental illness.
