Great Australian Scams, Cons And Rorts: A book Of Dodgy Schemes And Crazy Dreams From The Bush To The City by Jim Haynes
Requirements: ePUB or AZW3 Reader, 1.7MB
Overview: ‘Australian history is…so curious and strange, that it…does not read like history, but like the most beautiful lies… It is full of surprises, and adventures, and incongruities, and contradictions, and incredibilities; but they are all true, they all happened.’ – Mark Twain

Australia is the birthplace and setting of some of the wildest, craziest and least-likely-to-succeed cons and rorts in history. From the cleverest double-crosses to the most unlikely and maddest schemes, master storyteller Jim Haynes reminds us that we’ve never been shy of pulling a trick or two.

So how did a clever bushman who ‘couldn’t lie straight in bed’ steal a thousand head of cattle and get away with it even though he was caught ‘red handed’? And what about the disappearing work of art that suddenly dissolved only to reappear at an auction years later? Or how about the butcher from Wagga who passed himself off as a French-born English duke to inherit a small fortune. And then there was the small matter of a horse, a tin of paint and a million dollar double-cross that became known as the Fine Cotton Affair.

Surviving Evil: CIA Mind Control Experiments In Vermont by Karen Wetmore
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 2.2MB
Overview: “It appears as if in America there are expendable people and in Vermont, they are the mentally ill”. This is an incredible and true story. Beginning at age thirteen, Karen Wetmore was subjected to horrific treatment at Vermont State Hospital and related facilities. Through years of investigative journalism and numerous Freedom of Information Act requests, she was able to document that she was a victim of secret CIA mind control experiments as an adolescent and of sexual abuse by one of her psychiatrists. One of Karen’s psychiatrists was Robert Hyde, M.D. He was cleared at TOP SECRET as the contractor on CIA LSD experiments under MKULTRA. Karen calls for an investigation into the nearly 3000 deaths at Vermont State Hospital from 1952 to 1973. These deaths may have provided cover for terminal experiments conducted at the hospital.

Yellow Dirt: A Poisoned Land and the Betrayal of the Navajos by Judy Pasternak
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 6 MB
Overview: This investigative feat tells the shocking, heartbreaking story of uranium mining on the Navajo reservation and its terrible legacy of sickness and government neglect, documenting one of the darker chapters in 20th century American history.

Now in paperback, the critically acclaimed Yellow Dirt, “will break your heart. An enormous achievement—literally, a piece of groundbreaking investigative journalism—illustrates exactly what reporting should do: Show us what we’ve become as a people, and sharpen our vision of who we, the people, ought to become” ( The Christian Science Monitor ).

From the 1930s to the 1960s, the United States knowingly used and discarded an entire tribe of people as the Navajos worked, unprotected, in the uranium mines that fueled the Manhattan Project and the Cold War. Long after these mines were abandoned, Navajos in all four corners of the Reservation (which borders Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona) continued grazing their animals on sagebrush flats riddled with uranium that had been blasted from the ground. They built their houses out of chunks of uranium ore, inhaled radioactive dust borne aloft from the waste piles the mining companies had left behind, and their children played in the unsealed mines themselves. Ten years after the mines closed, the cancer rate on the reservation shot up and some babies began to be born with crooked fingers that fused together into claws as they grew. Government scientists filed complaints about the situation with the government, but were told it was a mess too expensive to clean up.

Judy Pasternak exposed this story in a prizewinning Los Angeles Times series. Her work galvanized both a congressman and a famous prosecutor to clean the sites and get reparations for the tribe. Yellow Dirt is her powerful chronicle of both the scandal of neglect and the Navajos’ fight for justice.

When you learn about (the very few) women in history, it’s hard not to wonder: why do they seem so prim and proper? The truth is, (mostly male) historians keep glossing over the real details, or leaving out the women who threatened their idea of what a woman should be like. Fake news!

Download Ludi Saeculares of Septimius Severus by Jussi Rantala (.PDF)

The Ludi Saeculares of Septimius Severus: The Ideologies of a New Roman Empire by Jussi Rantala
Requirements: PDF Reader, 1 MB
Overview: This is the first monograph to examine in detail the Ludi Saeculares (Secular Games) of Septimius Severus and argues that the games represented a radical shift from Antonine imperial ideology. To garner popular support and to legitimise his power, Severus conducted an intensive propaganda campaign, but how did he use the ludi to strengthen his power, and what were the messages he conveyed through them? The central theme is ritual, and the idea of ritual as a process that builds collective identity. The games symbolised the new Severan political and social vision and they embodied the idea of Roman identity and the image of Roman society which the emperor wished to promote. The programme of the games was recorded in a stone inscription and this text is analysed in detail, translated into English and contextualised in the socio-political aims of Septimius Severus.

The Myth of the 20th Century by Alfred Rosenberg
Requirements: ePUB Reader, MOBI Reader, AZW Reader, 2 MB
Overview: The Myth of the Twentieth Century (German: Der Mythus des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts) is a 1930 book by Alfred Rosenberg, one of the principal ideologues of the Nazi Party and editor of the Nazi paper Völkischer Beobachter. The titular “myth” (in the special Sorelian sense) is “the myth of blood, which under the sign of the swastika unchains the racial world-revolution. It is the awakening of the race soul, which after long sleep victoriously ends the race chaos.” The book has been described as “one of the two great unread bestsellers of the Third Reich” (the other being Mein Kampf). In private Adolf Hitler said: “I must insist that Rosenberg’s The Myth of the Twentieth Century is not to be regarded as an expression of the official doctrine of the party.” Hitler objected to Rosenberg’s paganism.

The First Season: 1917-18 And The Birth Of The NHL by Bob Duff
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 7.1MB
Overview: The National Hockey League is celebrating its hundredth anniversary in 2017–2018—but Bob Duff’s The First Season reveals how close the league came to folding in its very first year. Set against the turmoil of the Great War and born out of a ruse to rid the league of reviled Toronto owner Eddie Livingstone, the new league suffered from a series of crises: from a shortfall of quality players due to military conscription, to rival leagues and divided fan loyalties, to the burning down of the Montreal Arena that was home ice to two teams. But despite all this, the league survived—and became the worldwide standard for competitive hockey.

With chapters devoted to the first-ever NHL playoffs and Stanley Cup championships, in addition to team and player profiles and vintage black and white photos, Duff’s The First Season is essential reading for every hockey fan, providing real insight about the first generation of hockey heroes.

Download The Accidental Empire by Gershom Gorenberg (.ePUB)+

The Accidental Empire: Israel and the Birth of the Settlements, 1967-1977 by Gershom Gorenberg
Requirements: ePUB Reader, AZW Reader, 1 MB
Overview: In The Accidental Empire, Gershom Gorenberg examines the strange birth of the settler movement in the ten years following the Six-Day War and finds that it was as much the child of Labor Party socialism as of religious extremism. The giants of Israeli history―Dayan, Meir, Eshkol, Allon―all played major roles in this drama, as did more contemporary figures like Sharon, Rabin, and Peres. Gorenberg also shows how three American presidents turned a blind eye to what was happening in the territories, and reveals their strategic reasons for doing so.

Drawing on newly opened archives and extensive interviews, Gorenberg calls into question much of what we think we know about this issue that continues to haunt the Middle East.

Download Civic Community in Late Medieval… by Alan Kissane (.PDF)

Civic Community in Late Medieval Lincoln : Urban Society and Economy in the Age of the Black Death, 1289-1409 by Alan Kissane
Requirements: PDF Reader, 12 MB
Overview: The later middle ages saw provincial towns and their civic community contending with a number of economic, social and religious problems – including famine and the plague. This book, using Lincoln – then a significant urban centre – as a case study, investigates how such a community dealt with these issues, looking in particular at the links between town and central government, and how they influenced local customs and practices. The author then argues, with an assessment of industry, trade and civic finance, that towns such as Lincoln were often well placed to react to changes in the economy, by actively forging closer links with the crown both as suppliers of goods and services and as financiers. The book goes on to explore the foundations of civic government and the emergence of local guilds and chantries, showing that each reflected broader trends in local civic culture, being influenced in only a minor way by the Black Death, an event traditionally seen as a major turning point in late medieval urban history.
