More Info Suez: The Forgotten Invasion
by Robert Jackson

In the 1950s, after the creation of the State of Israel, there was still tension between Israel and Egypt.

The British involvement in the military action to secure the Suez Canal from President Nasser of Egypt in the autumn of 1956 proved to be one of the greatest political mistakes of the century.

It led to repercussions which affected Britain’s standing as a major player in world politics. In the light of many newly released government documents, Robert Jackson wrote his 1996 book which appraised both the military campaign itself and the international backlash that it caused.

More Info No Wrath of Men
by Richard Townshend Bickers

The First World War.

Twelve men, English, Australian, Canadian, South African, French, American and German were fated to meet for a short, climactic encounter in an aerial battle.

But fate would deal each man a very different hand.

Every one is entirely credible, each is skilfully depicted, briefly though incisively, so that the reader has a thorough understanding of each man's nature and the causes that make him behave as he does.

Coming from a great diversity of countries and personal backgrounds, their lives converge - for some, fatally.

The story opens when the Great War began in August...
More Info Courage Under Fire: Testing Epictetus's Doctrines in a Laboratory of Human Behavior (Hoover Essays)
by James B. Stockdale

When physical disability from combat wounds brought about Jim Stockdale's early retirement from military life, he had the distinction of being the only three-star officer in the history of the navy to wear both aviator wings and the Congressional Medal of Honor. His writings have been many and varied, but all converge on the central theme of how man can rise with dignity to prevail in the face of adversity.
More Info That Eternal Summer
by Ralph Barker

'It must be the finest English summer for years.'

In the balmy summer of 1940, the most critical battle of the Second World War was fought out over the fields and towns of southern England.

In this book, Ralph Barker unearths twelve little-known but unforgettable stories of men whose names may be unfamiliar but without whose selfless tenacity Britain would not have survived.

The restoration of squadron morale after the debacle in France, the misunderstanding of the RAF's role at Dunkirk, the harnessing of the 'ace' mentality to the attritional contest - all these are recounted, together...
More Info The Craftsman
by Richard Sennett

Craftsmanship, says Richard Sennett, names the basic human impulse to do a job well for its own sake, and good craftsmanship involves developing skills and focusing on the work rather than ourselves. The computer programmer, the doctor, the artist, and even the parent and citizen all engage in a craftsman’s work. In this thought-provoking book, Sennett explores the work of craftsmen past and present, identifies deep connections between material consciousness and ethical values, and challenges received ideas about what constitutes good work in today’s world. The Craftsman engages the many...

by Charles River Editors

*Includes a table of contents

Judea is one of the most important regions in the modern world. It is the center of two of the world’s great religions and extremely important to a 3rd. Politically, the whole area is the focus of conflict between Jews and Arabs, as well as different Muslim sects. Its history is littered with wars, insurrections, and religious revolutions. To say that it has had a turbulent past is to understate the case in the extreme.

The history of Judea is, of course,...

From approximately 3100 BCE until around 1075 BCE, ancient Egypt was ruled by 20 different dynasties.

Although the first 20 Egyptian dynasties varied in number of rulers and length, most shared one important...

The 17th century was marked by multiple pro-democratic revolutions exploding in both hemispheres. In Europe and its neighbors to the east, border-changing wars were fought incessantly.

By the onset of World War I, royal...

For decades, parodies featuring ominous, mysterious cults have been a favorite gag in pop culture. These fraternal brothers are often depicted in some type of underground lair, dressed in extravagant ceremonial robes with their faces hidden in their hoods, seated around a long table brimming with Gothic chalices, skulls, and glittering dark treasure. Flicks on the more morbid side might even show choppy, flashing imagery of blood,...
