More Info Daily Life in the Middle Ages
by Paul B. Newman

Although life in the Middle Ages was not as comfortable and safe as it is for most people in industrialized countries today, the term “Dark Ages” is highly misleading. The era was not so primitive and crude as depictions in film and literature would suggest. Even during the worst years of the centuries immediately following the fall of Rome, the legacy of that civilization survived.
This book covers diet, cooking, housing, building, clothing, hygiene, games and other pastimes, fighting and healing in medieval times. The reader will find numerous misperceptions corrected. The book also...
More Info Counterinsurgency Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam: Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife
by John Nagl

Armies are invariably accused of preparing to fight the last war. Nagl examines how armies learn during the course of conflicts for which they are initially unprepared in organization, training, and mindset. He compares the development of counterinsurgency doctrine and practice in the Malayan Emergency from 1948-1960 with that developed in the Vietnam Conflict from 1950-1975, through use of archival sources and interviews with participants in both conflicts. In examining these two events, he argues that organizational culture is the key variable in determining the success or failure of...

And it is fastened on a single hope;
Oh, you, who might be the moon!
--Somali love song
More Info Our Future Is Free: The Problems With Money And Possibilities Without It
by Matt Greer

Money was once a brilliant tool, enabling greater prosperity for the species than perhaps any other human invention. It has become out-dated though. Today money is a shackle, enslaving us into a hypnotic state of social paralysis. It’s proliferating a civilisation that is unintentionally harmful to itself.

We know that very different social systems produce very different versions of human nature. The underlying system we use today is money. Money determines how we allocate power and authority, how we make decisions, how we utilise technology, how we interact with one another, and how we...
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 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...

More Info Haldeman Diaries: Inside the Nixon White House
by H.R. Haldeman

“Because history is more art than science, it is remembered now only as it was chronicled then; this unfortunately is not always as it actually happened.”

Following his election as the 37th President of the United States in November 1968, Richard Nixon chose H. R. “Bob” Haldeman to be his Chief of Staff.

After the announcement, Haldeman was encouraged by a close friend, and presidential scholar, to faithfully record each day’s events, and his thoughts regarding them.

Deeming it worth the commitment, the result of his endeavour is nothing short of extraordinary.

Alongside power struggles and...
More Info The Mexican Mafia
by Tony Rafael

It has been called the most dangerous gang in American history. In Los Angeles alone it is responsible for over 100 homicides per year. Although it has fewer than 300 members, it controls a 40,000-strong street army that is eager to advance its agenda. It waves the flag of the Black Hand and its business is murder. Although known on the streets for over fifty years, the Mexican Mafia has flown under the radar of public awareness and has flourished beneath a deep cover of secrecy. Members are forbidden even to acknowledge its existence. For the first time in its history, the Mexican Mafia...
