Book of the Hopi by Frank Waters
Requirements: .PDF reader, 64.5 MB
Overview: In this "strange and wonderful book," some thirty elders of the ancient Hopi tribe of Northern Arizona freely reveal for the first time in written form the Hopi world-view of life. The Hopis have kept this view a secret for countless generations, and this book was made possible only as a result of their desire to record for future generations the principles of their "Road of Life." The breaking of the Hopi silence is significant and fascinating because for the first time anthropologists, ethnologists, and everyone interested in the field of Indian study have been given rich material showing the Hopi legends, the meaning of their religious rituals and ceremonies, and the beauty of a conception of life within the natural world that is completely untouched by materialistic worlds.

Download History of the Future in Colonial Mexico by Matthew D. O’Hara (.PDF)

The History of the Future in Colonial Mexico by Matthew D. O’Hara
Requirements: .PDF reader, 6.2 MB
Overview: A prominent scholar of Mexican and Latin American history challenges the field’s focus on historical memory to instead examine colonial-era conceptions of the future

Going against the grain of most existing scholarship, Matthew D. O’Hara explores the archives of colonial Mexico to uncover a history of ‘futuremaking.’ While historians and historical anthropologists of Latin America have long focused on historical memory, O’Hara—a Rockefeller Foundation grantee and the award-winning author of A Flock Divided: Race, Religion, and Politics in Mexico—rejects this approach and its assumptions about time experience. Ranging widely across economic, political, and cultural practices, O’Hara demonstrates how colonial subjects used the resources of tradition and Catholicism to craft new futures. An intriguing, innovative work, this volume will be widely read by scholars of Latin American history, religious studies, and historical methodology.

Download Holocaust Odysseys by Susan Zuccotti (.PDF)

Holocaust Odysseys: The Jews of Saint-Martin-Vésubie and Their Flight through France and Italy by Susan Zuccotti
Requirements: .PDF reader, 805 KB
Overview: This book describes the ever-escalating dangers to which Jewish refugees and recent immigrants were subjected in France and Italy as the Holocaust marched forward. Susan Zuccotti uncovers a grueling yet complex history of suffering and resilience through historical documents and personal testimonies from members of nine central and eastern European Jewish families, displaced to France in the opening years of the Second World War. The chronicle of their lives reveals clearly that these Jewish families experienced persecution of far greater intensity than citizen Jews or long-time resident immigrants.

The odyssey of the nine families took them from hostile Vichy France to the Alpine village of Saint-Martin-Vésubie and on to Italy, where German soldiers rather than hoped-for Allied troops awaited. Those who crossed over to Italy were either deported to Auschwitz or forced to scatter in desperate flight. Zuccotti brings to light the agonies of the refugees’ unstable lives, the evolution of French policies toward Jews, the reasons behind the flight from the relative idyll of

Saint-Martin-Vésubie, and the choices that confronted those who arrived in Italy. Powerful archival evidence frames this history, while firsthand reports underscore the human cost of the nightmarish years of persecution.

Download Empire of Shadows: Epic Story of Yellowstone by George Black (.ePUB)

Empire of Shadows: The Epic Story of Yellowstone by George Black
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.6 MB
Overview: Empire of Shadows is the epic story of the conquest of Yellowstone, a landscape uninhabited, inaccessible and shrouded in myth in the aftermath of the Civil War.

In a radical reinterpretation of the nineteenth century West, George Black casts Yellowstone’s creation as the culmination of three interwoven strands of history – the passion for exploration, the violence of the Indian Wars and the "civilizing" of the frontier – and charts its course through the lives of those who sought to lay bare its mysteries: Lt. Gustavus Cheyney Doane, a gifted but tormented cavalryman known as "the man who invented Wonderland"; the ambitious former vigilante leader Nathaniel Langford; scientist Ferdinand Hayden, who brought photographer William Henry Jackson and painter Thomas Moran to Yellowstone; and Gen. Phil Sheridan, Civil War hero and architect of the Indian Wars, who finally succeeded in having the new National Park placed under the protection of the US Cavalry. George Black¹s Empire of Shadows is a groundbreaking historical account of the origins of America¹s majestic national landmark.

Download Terry Jones’ Medieval Lives by Alan Ereira, Terry Jones (.ePUB)

Terry Jones’ Medieval Lives by Alan Ereira, Terry Jones
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 8 MB
Overview: Was medieval England full of knights on horseback rescuing fainting damsels in distress? Were the Middle Ages mired in superstition and ignorance? Why does nobody ever mention King Louis the First and Last? And, of course, those key questions: which monks were forbidden the delights of donning underpants… and did outlaws never wear trousers?Terry Jones and Alan Ereira are your guides to this most misrepresented and misunderstood period, and they point you to things that will surprise and provoke. Did you know, for example, that medieval people didn’t think the world was flat?

That was a total fabrication by an American journalist in the 19th century. Did you know that they didn’t burn witches in the Middle Ages? That was a refinement of the so-called Renaissance. In fact, medieval kings weren’t necessarily merciless tyrants, and peasants entertained at home using French pottery and fine wine. Terry Jones’ Medieval Lives reveals Medieval Britain as you have never seen it before – a vibrant society teeming with individuality, intrigue and innovation.

Boudica: The Life of Britain’s Legendary Warrior Queen by Vanessa Collingridge
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.5 MB
Overview: An “intelligent and infectiously enthusiastic” biography of the Celtic queen and an analysis of her impact on British and feminist history (The Sunday Times).

Boudica has been mythologized as the woman who dared to take on the Romans to avenge her daughters, her tribe, and her enslaved country. Her immortality rests on the fact that she almost drove the Romans out of Britain, and her legend has become the reference point for any British woman in power, from Elizabeth I to Margaret Thatcher. As Boudica has become well known as an icon of female leadership and strength, the true story of her revolt against the Roman Empire has only become more distant until now.

Download B-52 Stratofortress by Bill Yenne (.PDF)

B-52 Stratofortress: The Complete History of the World’s Longest Serving and Best Known Bomber by Bill Yenne
Requirements: .PDF reader, 23 MB
Overview: The B-52 is the longest serving and most versatile of the United States Air Force’s combat aircraft. The Stratofortress entered active service in 1955 and is scheduled to continue as part of the air force’s inventory through 2040. The jet-powered bomber was a mainstay of America’s Cold War nuclear-deterrent strategy, providing air power that balanced the land and sea military forces. The massive plane also served as the launch platform for the experimental X-15 hypersonic rocket aircraft. Due to its versatility as an aircraft, the B-52 has seen combat service in all of America’s military conflicts since it came on active duty: Vietnam, the first and second Gulf wars, and the War in Afghanistan.

B-52 Stratofortress also covers every aspect of the aircraft’s development, manufacture, and modification. These technical details set the stage for its military service, starting with its role as a nuclear bomber in the Cold War even though only conventional weapons have been used during its combat duty. The airplane’s service in key campaigns in Vietnam is covered, followed by the quieter years after it. The B-52 returned to prominence in the Gulf Wars and Afghanistan, taking part in massive bombing campaigns in both conflicts.

Finally, the book ends with the constant upgrades that will keep the B-52 an integral part of U.S. airpower for decades to come.
