Обложка книги A History of Women in Russia A History of Women in Russia

 Автор: Clements Barbara Evans


A Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2013

Synthesizing several decades of scholarship by historians East and West, Barbara Evans Clements traces the major developments in the history of women in Russia and their impact on the history of the nation. Sketching lived experiences across the centuries, she demonstrates the key roles that women played in shaping Russia's political, economic, social, and cultural development for over a millennium. The story Clements tells is one of hardship and endurance, but also one of achievement by women who, for example, promoted the conversion to Christianity, governed estates, created great art, rebelled against the government, established charities, built the tanks that rolled into Berlin in 1945, and flew the planes that strafed the retreating Wehrmacht. This daunting and complex history is presented in an engaging survey that integrates this scholarship into the field of Russian and post-Soviet history.

Обложка книги A Narco History: How the United States and Mexico Jointly Created the "Mexican Drug War" A Narco History: How the United States and Mexico Jointly Created the "Mexican Drug War"

 Автор: Boullosa Carmen, Wallace Mike


The “War Against Drugs”: who started it, and why? What are its consequences in real terms, not mere statistics, for the people most affected by it?

One hundred thousand deaths later — with the vast majority of those killed innocent citizens, such as the 43 teachers college students recently killed in Guerrero — the solution to peace requires a radical rethinking of how America, and its neighbors, approach the illegal drug trade.

The origins of this cataclysm of violence go back a century: and no two writers are better suited to this investigation than Carmen Boullosa and Mike Wallace, two legendary prize-winning writers, one Mexican and the other American. Through them we learn of economic disaster, mass migration of families fleeing violence, and the chaos that has ensued as direct results of this disastrous policy promulgated by the U.S. Government. Before the attack on a supposedly rampant drug “problem,” Mexico had one of the lowest crime rates and lowest addiction rates in Latin America. Now, it may be the most crime-ridden, drug-infested country on the planet.

Обложка книги A Secret History of Brands A Secret History of Brands

 Автор: MacNabb Matt


We live our lives immersed in name brand products. It’s hard to drive down the street without seeing a plethora of chain restaurants, car dealerships, branded clothing they’re all around us. What most of us don’t know is that the origins of many of the most well-known and beloved brands in the world are shrouded in controversy, drug use and sometimes even addled with blatant racism.

A Secret History of Brands cuts through the rumors and urban legends and paints a picture of the true dark history of famous brands, like Coca-Cola, Hugo Boss, Adidas, Ford, Bayer, Chanel and BMW among others. Explore the mystery of the cocaine content of Coca-Cola, the Hitler-Henry Ford connection and why Bayer is famous for asprin, but began their journey with Heroin, and how Kellogg’s Corn Flakes were crafted to deter sexual arousal. Thoroughly researched, McNabb details firsthand conducted interviews alongside fairly weighed research to present the decisive view of brands histories that you haven’t heard of yet.

About the Author: Pop culture historian Matt McNabb has spent the better part of the past twenty years researching the history of comic books, toys, film and television and their effect on our culture. He regularly features in publications such as SFX Magazine, Variety, MacLeans Magazine, Brick Journal, on CNN and BBC Radio. Author of Batman’s Arsenal: An Encyclopedic Chronicle and Ghostbusters Collectables, A Secret History of Brands is Matt’s third book.

Обложка книги A Spy at the Heart of the Third Reich A Spy at the Heart of the Third Reich

 Автор: Delattre Lucas


In 1943 a young official from the German foreign ministry contacted Allen Dulles, an OSS officer in Switzerland who would later head the Central Intelligence Agency. That man was Fritz Kolbe, who had decided to betray his country after years of opposing Nazism. While Dulles was skeptical, Kolbe’s information was such that he eventually admitted, “No single diplomat abroad, of whatever rank, could have got his hands on so much information as did this man; he was one of my most valuable agents during World War II.”

Using recently declassified materials at the U.S. National Archives and Kolbe’s personal papers, Lucas Delattre has produced a work of remarkable scholarship that moves with the swift pace of a Le Carri thriller.

Обложка книги A-10s over Kosovo A-10s over Kosovo

 Автор: Haave Christopher E, Haun Phil M


There are certain dates in the history of warfare that mark real turning points…. Now there is a new date on the calendar: June 3, 1999, when the capitulation of President Milosevic proved that a war can be won by airpower alone.

—John Keegan, London’s Daily Telegraph

Colonels Haave and Haun organized the firsthand accounts of members of the 40th Expeditionary Operations Group into this book. Their descriptions of the application of airpower—a new wingman’s first combat sortie, a support officer’s view of an FS relocation during combat, and Sandy pilot’s efforts to find and rescue a downed F-177 pilot—provide the reader with a legitimate insight into an air war at the tactical level and the airpower that helped convince Milosevic to capitulate.

Обложка книги Afgantsy Afgantsy

 Автор: Braithwaite Rodric


As former ambassador to Moscow, Rodric Braithwaite brings unique insights to the Soviet war in Afghanistan. The story has been distorted not only by Cold War propaganda but also by the myths of the nineteenth century Great Game. It moves from the high politics of the Kremlin to the lonely Russian conscripts in isolated mountain outposts. The parallels with Afghanistan today speak for themselves.

‘A superb achievement of narrative history, sensitive writing and exciting fresh research’: so wrote Simon Sebag Montefiore about Rodric Braithwaite’s bestseller Moscow 1941. But those words, and many others of praise that were given it, could equally apply to his new book.

Alu lauva  Ž .Ronī vecākais

Šī grāmata — ar pilnīgi patstāvīgu sižetu — risina tālāk tā paša autora pazīstamo stāstu «Cīņa par uguni» (iznācis latviešu valodā 1965. gadā) un tēlo divu ak­mens laikmeta aizvēsturisko cilvēku — Una un Zura piedzīvojumus. Abi jaunekļi devušies tālā ceļojumā mek­lēt savai ciltij jaunus medību apgabalus. Ceļā viņi uz­sāk cīņu ar zobenzobu tīģeri mahairodu un milzu žņau­dzējčūsku, sadraudzējas ar meža ļaudīm un paglābj vi­ņus no kareivīgās asinskārās uguns ļaužu cilts, pieradina milzīgo alu lauvu, kas savukārt ne vienu reizi vien nāk palīgā jaunekļiem.

Обложка книги Architects of Death Architects of Death

 Автор: Bartlett Karen


Topf and Sons designed and built the crematoria at the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Buchenwald, Belzec, Dachau, Mauthausen and Gusen. At its height sixty-six Topf triple muffle ovens were in operation – forty-six of which were at Auschwitz.

In five years the gas chambers and crematoria of Auschwitz had been the engine of the holocaust, facilitating the murder and incineration of more than one million people, most of them Jews.

Yet such a spectacularly evil feat of engineering was designed not by the Nazi SS, but by a small respectable firm of German engineers: the owners and engineers of J. A. Topf and Sons. These were not Nazi sadists, but men who were playboys and the sons of train drivers. They were driven not by ideology, but by love affairs, personal ambition and bitter personal rivalries to create the ultimate human killing and disposal machines – even at the same time as their company sheltered Nazi enemies from the death camps.

The intense conflagration of their very ordinary motives created work that surpassed in its inhumanity even the demands of the SS. In order to fulfil their own ‘dreams’ they created the ultimate human nightmare.

Обложка книги Atēnu Taīda Atēnu Taīda

 Автор: Jefremov Ivan


Pazīstamā krievu padomju rakstnieka (1907–1972) pēdējais romāns vēsta par notikumiem 4. g. s. p. m. ē., kad Maķedonijas Aleksandra karagājienu un grieķu filozofu humānistu mācību ietekmē veidojās plašāks pasaules un cilvēka esamības redzējums.

Kā sarkans pavediens romānam cauri vijas doma par mākslas un tās iedvesmotājas — sievietes nezūdošo daili.

Romāna «Atēnu Taīda» pamatā ir kāda antīkās vēstures avotos pazīstama epizode: Persepoles — vienas no persiešu valsts galvaspilsētām — nodedzināšana; to ierosināja slavenā Atēnu hetēra, kas pavadīja Maķedonijas Aleksandru karagājienā.

Обложка книги Atomic Thunder: The Maralinga Story Atomic Thunder: The Maralinga Story

 Автор: Tynan Elizabeth


In September 2016 it will be 60 years since the first British mushroom cloud rose above the plain at Maralinga in South Australia. The atomic weapons test series wreaked havoc on Indigenous communities and turned the land into a radioactive wasteland.

In 1950 Australian prime minister Robert Menzies blithely agreed to atomic tests that offered no benefit to Australia and relinquished control over them – and left the public completely in the dark. This book reveals the devastating consequences of that decision. After earlier tests at Monte Bello and Emu Field, in 1956 Australia dutifully provided 3200 square kilometres of South Australian desert to the British Government, along with logistics and personnel.

How could a democracy such as Australia host another country’s nuclear program in the midst of the Cold War? In this meticulously researched and shocking work, journalist and academic Elizabeth Tynan reveals how Australia allowed itself to be duped. Maralinga was born in secret atomic business, and has continued to be shrouded in mystery decades after the atomic thunder stopped rolling across the South Australian test site. This book is the most comprehensive account of the whole saga, from the time that the explosive potential of splitting uranium atoms was discovered, to the uncovering of the extensive secrecy around the British tests in Australia many years after the British had departed, leaving an unholy mess behind.

‘Just as witnesses to our A-bomb tests turned their backs on the blasts, Australia turned its back on the memory of one of the most diabolical times in our history. Compulsive reading? Make that compulsory. This is a brilliant book.’

– Phillip Adams

 Серия: Война в воздухе


Бомбардировщик «Ланкастер» вызывает у англичан и жителей Британского Содружества чувство привязанности, смешанное с гордостью – примерно так же, как В-17 «Летающая Крепость» у американцев. Если «Спитфайр» олицетворял боевой дух Содружества перед лицом казавшегося неизбежным поражения, то вид и звук моторов армад «Ланкастеров», отправлявшихся в ночной рейд в центр нацистской Германии. воплощали желание измученных войной людей увидеть немецкую военную машину уничтоженной.

 Автор: Неизвестен Автор


Англосаксонские хроники» - древнейшая летопись Англии, охватывающая период с римского завоевания до 1154 г. Ее составление началось в конце IX в. при короле Альфреде на основе "Истории" Беды, сохранившихся отрывков мерсийских и уэссекских хроник и устных преданий. Сохранилось 9 рукописей хроник написанных на англосаксонском языке и частью на латыни. Ранняя часть хроник до 731 г. в основном взята из сочинения Беды, но содержит много дополнении, касающихся истории Южной Англии (особенно Уэссекса), Лапидарные записи хроник постепенно становятся более длинными и дополняются вставными новеллами; особенно интересны сведения о событиях IX-XI вв., для которых хроники являются часто единственным источником. Расхождения между рукописями довольно значительны, однако в основном это касается более позднего периода. Большинство английских переводов ориентировано на сводную версию. Настоящий перевод сделан по английскому тексту хроник: The Saxon Chronicle. Tr. A. Savage. London, 1982, Текст сверен по изданию: Two of the Saxon Chronicles Parallel / Ed. C. Plummer. Oxford, 1892.
