Six Tudor Queens: Writing a New Story

Six Tudor Queens: Writing a New Story is an introduction to the Six Tudor Queens series by eminent historian Alison Weir. The lives of Henry VIII's queens make for dramatic stories that will offer insights into the real lives of the six wives based on extensive research and new theories that will captivate fans of Philippa Gregory and readers who lost their hearts (but not their heads) to the majestic world of Wolf Hall.



In all the romancing, has anyone regarded the evidence that Anne Boleyn did not love Henry VIII? Or that Prince Arthur, Katherine of Aragon's first husband, who is said to have loved her in fact cared so little for her that he willed his personal effects to his sister? Or that Henry VIII, an over-protected child and teenager, was prudish when it came to sex? That Jane Seymour, usually portrayed as Henry's one true love, had the makings of a matriarch? There is much to reveal ...

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.

Secrets of Ancient Tibet, 6,000 B.C.

Explore Ancient Tibet and its Profound Secret Knowledge.The civilization of ancient Tibet--the lost kingdom of Zhang Zhung and its legendary tradition of sorcery and true magic--is among the least known and most irritatingly mysterious obscurities of history. Very little of its past has been deciphered and orthodox scholarship stands before Zhang Zhung in deeper darkness today than that which shrouded the Egypt of the Pharaohs before Champollion. Archaeologists debate what the ancient civilization on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau actually was, when it came, and whence it came. Doubtless many chapters of Tibet's ancient history will lie forever silent under her remote and desolate soil, yet extant traditions have perhaps been too readily set aside; academic pedants love to brand as mythical the accounts which have endured the millennia, and which mischievously persist.The study of antiquity is properly accounted worthless except as it may be made living knowledge which illuminates and enriches our contemporary life. Owing to a remarkable series of events in an isolated region of the Himalayas, I encountered an extraordinary group of people and, through those encounters, was privileged to learn that much of the secret knowledge of the ancient Zhang Zhung culture has not only been preserved, it is powerful, richly illuminating, and utilized to this day. As the reader will discover, these shrouded secrets formulate the explorations in this book. As one of their most illuminating concepts, those traditions relate that there is a group of esoteric teachings--the 'Four Portals'--which set forth the true nature of physical reality and techniques of powerful elemental magic, or "sorcery." The first traces of the teachings are thought to have appeared as part of the lore of the pre-Tibetan culture that arose in Tibet several thousand years ago, but may have originated far earlier. Being a forbidden body of knowledge, said to convey enormous powers, the teachings disappear from the historical record for countless centuries, not to reemerge until the 7th century A.D. in the arcane scriptures of the pre-Buddhist B'on religion. According to those ancient traditions, the teachings of the 'Four Portals' were formulated by the earliest known "Buddha-like" master, Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche. The B'on traditions relate this historic event as occurring as early as 16,000 B.C. Although still shrouded in mystery, our most recent research indicates that the extant evidence places the earliest date of the Zhang Zhung culture at about 6,000 B.C., although the date of 16,000 B.C. may indicate the existence of a true Zhang Zhung or pre-Zhang Zhung culture existing prior to the 'Younger Dryas Boundary' cataclysmic event that effectively erased early civilizations from the historical record. Much like our most recent historical Buddha, Shenrab renounced his life as a prince of the royal family to become a monk. Over a period of "many years," the traditions relate, he gained access to secret knowledge that had been imparted, recorded, and hidden away some two-thousand years earlier by an entity known as "Gekhoe." With this knowledge Shenrab achieved enlightenment and "otherworldly powers," then later composed a comprehensive body of teachings to instruct qualified seekers on the means and techniques of attaining the most elevated wisdom and power. That secret knowledge is revealed and explored in this book.2018 Edition, Kindle e-reader page count 278 (est., actual count varies with the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited Book.

The 9/11 Commission Report: Full and Complete Account of the Circumstances Surrounding the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks

It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United

States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were

efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border

security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers

demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the

United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security

policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.

Prepared: The 8 Secret Skills of an Ex-IDF Special Forces Operator That Will Keep You Safe - Basic Guide

Learn the 8 secret skills of an Ex-IDF Special Forces operator that will keep you safe and prepare you for any situation - from a street mugging all the way to a full blown global catastrophe!



"Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you."

Joseph Heller, Catch-22



This is a great start to becoming more prepared for any situation. Our world is truly strange that so many good and helpful people find themselves preyed upon by the criminal elements. In case of an emergency or a catastrophe those odds may become even worst.



My name is Roy Shepard and I'm a former IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) Special Forces Operator. During my military service, I took part in countless missions behind enemy lines and later trained young cadets as a Master Sergeant. I specialize in weapons training, stealth and camouflage, and Krav-Maga. I've been in active reserve duty for the past 20 years and spent much of that time formulating and implementing defense strategies and drills in military bases all over Israel. Highly trained in martial arts, I specialize in Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido, and Russian Systema--with both hand-to-hand combat and melee weapon handling. I am also an expert marksman with both close-quarters and long-range weapons.



The IDF is one of the most effective militaries in the world with proven strategies and tactics that have kept Israel safe for the last 70 years. The harsh reality is that Israel is a small country surrounded by hostile nations that have been intent on destroying it since it was formed in 1948. The IDF has defended Israel in eight full-out wars and fended off many incursions and terrorist attacks.



The skills that I'm about to share with you are the same ones used by the IDF Special Forces Operators to stay safe in hostile situations and will allow you to do so as well. Be it fending off a mugger in a dark parking lot or surviving a post-catastrophe scenario.



The reality is that we are always only moments away from danger and knowing the exact step-by-step response can be the difference between life, injury, or even death. Using the knowledge in this book you will learn how to avoid, escape, or survive numerous dangerous situations using minimal effort.



The number one thing you must remember is that being efficient can save your life. If you don't take steps to conserve your energy, you will get tired very quickly and may lose the battle. Professional fighters can hold a full combat event for a few seconds and after that they rely solely on technique to survive and accomplish the mission.



This book will teach you eight of the most effective techniques to stay safe:

1. Situational awareness

2. Tactical relocation

3. Planning for emergencies

4. Survival self-defense

5. Team roles

6. Communications

7. Fitness

8. Survival tools



I look forward to seeing you as part of our community at Prepper Legend and hope you enjoy this book at least as much as I enjoyed writing it.



And above all else stay safe!



Your friend always,



Roy Shepard

My War at Sea 1914–1916: A Captain's Life with the Royal Navy during the First World War

This book is based on the wartime recollections of Heathcoat S. Grant, the captain of the HMS Canopus between 1914-1916. It is published in conjunction with the War Letters 1914-1918 series and is based on a series of articles Grant wrote for the Naval Review in the 1920s.

It is published primarily to be of interest to those seeking more details about particular aspects of the war at sea. Grant never intended it to be a great work of naval literature, but a work of historic record.

For the first two years of the war HMS Canopus had as eventful a time as any ship in the Royal Navy, being involved at Coronel, the Battle of the Falklands and the attempt to force the Dardanelles.

As captain of the ship, Grant's account, based on his service reports and diary, is a valuable source for those wanting to know more about such key naval events of the First World War.

The report of his conversations with Rear-Admiral Sir Christopher Cradock sheds a valuable light on events at Coronel, while his description of the measures taken on land to defend the Falkland Islands details an important aspect of the battle often overlooked in accounts which focus primarily on the battle at sea.

The Canopus also played a critical role at the Dardanelles, getting further up the Straits than any other Allied ship, and Grant's sceptical perspective from inside the higher echelons of the Royal Navy adds further grist, if more were needed, to critics of the campaign. Later his account of the role of the navy in the Smyrna patrol and the subsequent operations against the Turkish coast following the evacuation of the Gallipoli peninsula provide a fascinating view into this frequently forgotten aspect of the conflict.

With the kind permission of the Naval Review, I have brought together all of Grant's articles and reproduced them in a single volume to make them more easily accessible. I have also added the account given by Commander Philip J. Stopford of the Canopus which also appeared in the Naval Review. Stopford's account is much shorter and considerably less interesting than Grant's, but it does offer some additional insights.

ATLANTIS SOLON AND PLATO FOR FROST? [NEW EDITION]

Look again at the ATLANTIS legend and discover the hidden truth within the myths and legends handed down through the generations and cultures of the ancient world.

Solon one of the Seven Fages of Greece a celebrated lawmaker, Poet and Statesman travelled the world in search of a blueprint for perfect state.

Whilst he was in Egypt studying beside the sacred priests of the deity Neith at Sais he was informed of the ancient history of Athens and the ancient lost superpower and island empire called Atlantis.

Solon was shocked by the history the priests relayed from their ancient Library archives within the temple grounds of the deity Neith but he listened mesmerized by the details of the island empire of Atlantis.

He continued his travels but recorded the details of Atlantis and when he returned to Athens he incorporated in his own works the accounts of the ancient island empire of Atlantis.

An old friend of Solon's retained the works a man called Dropides who was an ancestor of Plato and handed the works down to Plato.

Atlantis through the words, works and influence of Plato was delivered to the wider world and the once forgotten ancient island empire Atlantis was reanimated and today it still inspires and intrigues people around the world.

K.T. Frost was among the first scholars to associate the island empire of Atlantis with the Minoan world centred on Crete.

His work titled The Lost Continent was published in the London Times on Feb 19th, 1909 an inspired article that drew on the excavations on Crete by Archaeologists on many ancient sites on Crete such as Sir Arthur Evans discoveries on the Knossos

site.

Atlantis by its association with the Minoan world was when later discoveries were uncovered by archaeologists on nearby Santorini back in the news again.

Archaeology and now Science and technology along with many scholars and historians began to associate the Theran eruption event with the Minoan and Atlantis island empires.

Ancient lost island empires ruled by seafaring peoples who controlled the high seas of the ancient world by their superior technology in navigation and shipbuilding.

BEHIND CIVILISATION

Darwin's evolution theory revolutionises our understanding of the biological world. In parallel, this book is a critical breakthrough in scientific philosophy. It revolutionises our understanding of nature, particularly on civilisation, through discovering a fundamental mechanism which not only governs lifeless objects but intelligence-driven civilisation as well. This discovery provides an alternative to challenge the most fundamental issue - "the Theory of Everything". As this mechanism is the most fundamental level, it is the foundation of similarity, including the amazing similarities between a human body and a society. Upon this theoretical basis, following the rules of this mechanism and using a human body as a model, civilisation is systematically investigated. As such, technological development and its consequential social development are understood from the most fundamental level. As a result, the human future have been successfully predicted and many historical puzzles have been unequivocally solved, such as: why could the ancient Greeks create a brilliant civilisation; why were there so many great thinkers; why did Scientific Revolution and the model of university education originate from Europe rather than from other places; why did the Chinese civilisation remain stagnant while the West was rapidly rising after Scientific Revolution. Even one of the long-lasting enigmatic question, "what is beauty", is unequivocally answered once and for all. It is the expression of one of the fundamental laws of physics but it is not symmetry.

In the end, this book unites social science with natural science, and further, science with philosophy. Finally, a conclusion is drawn: human civilisation is a part of the evolution of the universe. The laws that govern the universe also govern human civilisation.

Mushroom Season

'Mushroom Season' is a ramble through magic mushrooms, mountains and metaphysics. After heavy sanctions relegated their use to a spell in the stoner wilderness, are psilocybin mushrooms about to help reframe important social and philosophical debates about our minds, and ourselves?

Where do they grow? What do they do to our brains? And why are they eschewed by the bourgois? Nina Lyon introduces us to Liberty Caps and Fly Agarics, the characters she encountered as a student tripper and the differences between home-grown hallucinogens and Mexican export.

Among the anecdotes and observations are chemical facts, etymological revelations and philosophical speculation. Why are mushrooms subject to social stigma? What are the good effects they might have on us? And how does illegalisation damage a culture of free-thinking and experiment? Taking apart the teenage cliches and middle-class prejudice associated with the drug, Nina Lyon provides a wonderfully entertaining history of the magic mushroom.

Flight From Syria: Refugee Stories

Flight from Syria: Refugee Stories features the writing and photography of nine Pulitzer Center grantees- journalists who reported on Syrian refugees between 2012 and 2015. Their travels took them from Syria to Sweden, and from crowded camps to cramped apartments in city suburbs. Each of the journalists- Hugh Eakin, Lauren Gelfond Feldinger, Stephen Franklin, Joanna Kakissis, Alia Malek, Holly Pickett, Alisa Roth, Alice Su, and Selin Thomas- lends a unique perspective. Originally published in Al Jazeera, BBC News, Guernica, In These Times, Marketplace, NPR, The Atlantic and The New York Review of Books, these stories tell of an abandoned homeland, an indifferent world, and an uncertain future. They trace the history of one of the biggest displacements of modern times- providing a testament to the suffering and courage of those who fled.

Men of Iron: The Roman Legion During Hannibal's War

Charles R. King utilizes his academic education in physics and classical history to apply an original quantitative and empirical face to the study of one of the most celebrated and feared elements in military history, the Roman Legion. Accessible to both the professional historian and the buff, this analysis enables the reader to approach the legion at the time of the Punic Wars from a new and different outlook and even argues compellingly against the predominant view that the legion fought in a checkerboard formation. The author utilizes primary sources and examination of the weapons and equipment of the legion to provide unique insights.

Charles R. King's specific area of interest has always been the Roman Republic period and the Punic Wars which have fascinated him since childhood. This work not only utilizes his education and academic background, but also takes advantage of his experience as a career military officer and of physical visits to many of the significant sites of the Punic Wars.

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.

Who was the man we know as Job? When and where did he live, and what was happening in the world at the time? What are some of the mysteries and little-known scientific curiosities that Job was familiar with that were only rediscovered within the last several centuries?

And what of the Ice Ages? Was there really such a time in history in which much of the earth was covered in glaciers? If the Ice Age occurred, where does it fit in the biblical timeline? Does the oldest book in the Bible offer any clues as to when that period may have occurred?

Canada at War: A Graphic History of World War Two

In 1914, Canada went to war as a subject of Britain. In 1939, it made the choice to fight all on its own. Canada at War follows the developments and setbacks, wins and losses, of a nation learning to stand up for itself under the toughest possible conditions: in the midst of the most difficult war of the twentieth century. In graphic-novel format, fully illustrated and in full colour, Canada at War shows the growth of a nation's army, navy, and air forces through movingly depicted triumphs and tragedies. From the disheartening losses at Dieppe and Hong Kong through the Battle of the Atlantic and the invasion of Sicily, it focuses on the human dimension of the key battles and decisions that ultimately swung the war in the Allieds' favour. This moving, graphic account ends, after the victories of D-Day and Juno Beach and the liberation of Europe, with a final reckoning of the legacy these storied years have had on a country forged through war. Aimed at a general audience of both adults and young adults, this very human history tells the stories behind some of this country's most distinguishing military moments.

The Zen Experience

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.

The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass

The premier publishing of Frederick Douglass' bestselling autobiography was in 1845, wherein he documents his life as a young slave learning to read, his subsequent escape from slavery, and how he established himself as a freeman under a false name. Douglass was forced to flee the country to evade recapture after the original pressing and only returned after buying his freedom. Two more autobiographies were published, in 1855 and 1881, where Douglass told of his life as an abolitionist, advisor to the president, and newspaper editor.

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.

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.

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. See uprootedthenovel.com for more details

Exploring Cultural Identities in Jean Rhys Fiction

Exploring Cultural Identities in Jean Rhys' Writings seeks to circumscribe Jean Rhys' work within a paradigm that reflects the search for a cultural identity so specific to postcolonial literature. The book carries out an examination of the relationship between hybrid identities, self and otherness and of several situations of existential ambivalence that work on the border between sign (colonial difference) and symbol (imperial authority).

A History of Self-Harm in Britain: A Genealogy of Cutting and Overdosing (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

This book is open access under a CC BY license and is the first account of self-harming behaviour in its proper historical and political context. The rise of self-cutting and overdosing in the 20th century is linked to the sweeping changes in mental and physical health, and wider political context. The welfare state, social work, Second World War, closure of the asylums, even the legalization of suicide, are all implicated in the prominence of self harm in Britain. The rise of 'overdosing as a cry for help' is linked to the integration of mental and physical healthcare, the NHS, and the change in the law on suicide and attempted suicide. The shift from overdosing to self-cutting as the most prominent 'self-damaging' behaviour is also explained, linked to changes in hospital organization and the wider rise of neoliberal politics. Appreciation of history and politics is vital to understanding the psychological concerns over these self-harming behaviours.

Judging ''Privileged'' Jews: Holocaust Ethics, Representation, and the Grey Zone (War and Genocide)

The Nazis' persecution of the Jews during the Holocaust included the creation of prisoner hierarchies that forced victims to cooperate with their persecutors. Many in the camps and ghettos came to hold so-called "privileged" positions, and their behavior has often been judged as self-serving and harmful to fellow inmates. Such controversial figures constitute an intrinsically important, frequently misunderstood, and often taboo aspect of the Holocaust. Drawing on Primo Levi's concept of the "grey zone," this study analyzes the passing of moral judgment on "privileged" Jews as represented by writers, such as Raul Hilberg, and in films, including Claude Lanzmann's Shoah and Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List. Negotiating the problems and potentialities of "representing the unrepresentable," this book engages with issues that are fundamental to present-day attempts to understand the Holocaust and deeply relevant to reflections on human nature.
