Pericles: A Biography in Context by Thomas R. Martin
Requirements: .PDF reader, 3.9 MB
Overview: Pericles was the most famous leader of the most famous ancient Greek democracy – and also the most controversial in his own time and ever since. Was he a brutal imperialist ready to oppress other Greeks, or a clear-eyed defender of Athens’ need for power to survive in a relentlessly hostile world? How did his intellectual training in ideas that many Athenians regarded as dangerous make him the most persuasive leader Athenian democracy ever knew? Why was his personal lifestyle so idiosyncratic? How should we evaluate his responsibility for the suffering and loss of the Peloponnesian War? Thomas R. Martin’s unique emphasis on the effect on Pericles of his family’s notorious history, his youthful experiences as a wartime refugee, and his unusual education reveals a brilliant politician whose hyper-rationality could not, in the end, protect him or his community from tragedy.

Download Freud by Rene Major, Chantal Talagrand (.PDF)

Freud : The Unconscious and World Affairs by Rene Major and Chantal Talagrand
Requirements: .PDF reader, 14 MB
Overview: This book sheds a new light on Freud who, from the beginning, was aware that the edifice he was constructing – psychoanalysis – which revealed in each individual an ‘ego not master in its own house’ – had clear implications for understanding collective human behaviour. This man was profoundly concerned with matters of peace and war, religion, morality and civilisation.

The authors political focus is unusual, and their choice of quotes from lesser-known sources holds great interest. Freud’s interlocutors include Oskar Pfisrer, Swiss pastor and lay analyst; Einstein; and the American diplomat William Bullitt, with whom Freud wrote a study of President Wilson, entitled Thomas Widrow Wilson. A Psychological Study. In the Introduction to this book, written in 1930, Freud describes Wilson as a person for whom mere facts held no significance; he esteemed highly nothing but human motives and opinions.

Rule, Britannia! : The Biopic and British National Identity by Homer B. Pettey and R. Barton Palmer
Requirements: .PDF reader, 3 MB
Overview: Assesses how cinematic biographies of key figures reflect and shape what it means to be British.

Rule, Britannia! surveys the British biopic, a genre crucial to understanding how national cinema engages with the collective experience and values of its intended audience. Offering a provocative take on an aspect of filmmaking with profound cultural significance, the volume focuses on how screen biographies of prominent figures in British history and culture can be understood as involved, if unofficially, in the shaping and promotion of an ever-protean national identity. The contributors engage with the vexed concept of British nationality, especially as this sense of collective belonging is problematized by the ethnically oriented alternatives of English, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish nations. They explore the critical and historiographical issues raised by the biopic, demonstrating that celebration of conventional virtue is not the genre’s only natural subject. Filmic depictions of such personalities as Elizabeth I, Victoria, George VI, Elizabeth II, Margaret Thatcher, Iris Murdoch, and Jack the Ripper are covered.

Download Margot Asquith’s Great War Diary by Michael Brock (.PDF)

Margot Asquith’s Great War Diary 1914-1916: The View from Downing Street by Michael Brock and Eleanor Brock
Requirements: .PDF reader, 3 MB
Overview: Margot Asquith was the wife of Herbert Henry Asquith, the Liberal Prime Minister who led Britain into war in August 1914. Asquith’s early war leadership drew praise from all quarters, but in December 1916 he was forced from office in a palace coup, and replaced by Lloyd George, whose career he had done so much to promote. Margot had both the literary gifts and the vantage point to create, in her diary of these years, a compelling record of her husband’s fall from grace. She once described herself as ‘a sort of political clairvoyant’, but she did not anticipate the premier’s fall, and it is for her candour, not her clairvoyance, that the diary is valuable.

Margot was both a spectator of, and a participant in, the events that she describes, and in public affairs could be an ally or an embarrassment – sometimes both. Her diary evokes the wartime milieu, as experienced in 10 Downing Street, and describes the great political battles that lay behind the warfare on the Western Front. Her writing teems with character sketches, including those of Lloyd George (‘a natural adventurer who may make or mar himself any day’), Churchill (‘Winston’s vanity is septic’), and Kitchener (‘a man brutal by nature and by pose’). Witty and worldly, Margot also possessed a childlike vulnerability: ‘This is the 84th day of the war’ she wrote in October 1914, ‘and speaking for myself I have never felt the same person since. I don’t mean to say I have improved! On the contrary…’.

This volume brings together a wealth of previously-unpublished source material with an introductory essay from Michael and Eleanor Brock, two of the leading authorities in the field. This will be vital reading for anyone with an interest in the history of World War I or in British politics of the time.

Download Bell Curve City by Paul Kersey (.ePUB)+

Bell Curve City: St. Louis, Ferguson, and the Unmentionable Racial Realities That Shape Them by Paul Kersey
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.6MB
Overview: On August 9, 2014, an altercation between a white police officer and a black male in a suburb of St. Louis set in motion a course of events capturing international attention and creating a revolutionary zeal amongst blacks exacerbated by the black President of the United States and the black Attorney General of the Department of Justice.

Time magazine ran a cover story on the situation, dubbing the aftermath Officer Darren Wilson’s encounter with Michael Brown "The Tragedy of Ferguson."

But the true tragedy of what happened to Ferguson and metropolitan St. Louis has yet to be told: until now.

This is the Ferguson War Journal, a day-by-day account of what happened in the media-created maelstrom ultimately culminating in Darren Wilson’s complete exoneration of any wrongdoing.

Paul Kersey, the author of Escape from Detroit, focuses his attention on the racial history of not only Ferguson, but the entire St. Louis region in Bell Curve City, where a combination of white flight from black crime and the federal government mandated Section 8 Housing created the conditions enabling the scenario of what happened on August 9 between Wilson and Brown.

American Bloomsbury: Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau: Their Lives, Their Loves, Their Work by Susan Cheever
Requirements: .ePUB, .PDF reader, 1 Mb
Overview: Even the most devoted readers of nineteenth-century American literature often assume that the men and women behind the masterpieces were as dull and staid as the era’s static daguerreotypes. Susan Cheever’s latest work, however, brings new life to the well-known literary personages who produced such cherished works as “The Scarlet Letter, Moby-Dick, Walden,” and “Little Women.” Rendering in full color the tumultuous, often scandalous lives of these volatile and vulnerable geniuses, Cheever’s dynamic narrative reminds us that, while these literary heroes now seem secure of their spots in the canon, they were once considered avant-garde, bohemian types, at odds with the establishment. These remarkable men and women were so improbably concentrated in placid Concord, Massachusetts, that Henry James referred to the town as the “biggest little place in America.”

Final Fire: A Memoir by Michael Mitchell
Requirements: EPUB Reader 35.62 MB
Overview: See the world through a photographer’s eyes
Final Fire is a companion piece to Mitchell’s much-praised 2004 memoir, The Molly Fire, a finalist for both the Writers’ Trust Drainie-Taylor Biography Prize and the Governor General’s Award for Non-fiction, anda Globe and Mail Best Book of the Year.
Nearly a half century ago, Mitchell abandoned a safe and secure academic career to become a "cowboy" with a camera and a keyboard. While he has always kept one foot planted firmly in the arts, as a working photographer his search for adventure took him through the Americas, into the High Arctic, across Europe, on to the Middle East, India, and the Far East. He photographed famous athletes, musicians, actors, politicians, revolutionaries, and more than a few criminals. The sum of these scary, strange, heartrending, and funny episodes is one man’s prescription for how to live in a bizarre and, best of all, never boring world.
It is also a book about loss. Mitchell reflects on the invention of photography and its transformative effect on world culture and pays tribute to fellow photographers who led remarkable and frequently obsessive lives.
