Download Atlantic History: Concept and Contours by Bernard Bailyn (.ePUB)+

Atlantic History: Concept and Contours by Bernard Bailyn
Requirements: .ePUB, .PDF, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.5 Mb
Overview: Atlantic history is a newly and rapidly developing field of historical study. Bringing together elements of early modern European, African, and American history–their common, comparative, and interactive aspects–Atlantic history embraces essentials of Western civilization, from the first contacts of Europe with the Western Hemisphere to the independence movements and the globalizing industrial revolution. In these probing essays, Bernard Bailyn explores the origins of the subject, its rapid development, and its impact on historical study.

He first considers Atlantic history as a subject of historical inquiry–how it evolved as a product of both the pressures of post-World War II politics and the internal forces of scholarship itself. He then outlines major themes in the subject over the three centuries following the European discoveries. The vast contribution of the African people to all regions of the West, the westward migration of Europeans, pan-Atlantic commerce and its role in developing economies, racial and ethnic relations, the spread of Enlightenment ideas–all are Atlantic phenomena.

In examining both the historiographical and historical dimensions of this developing subject, Bailyn illuminates the dynamics of history as a discipline.

How the Dismal Science Got Its Name: Classical Economics and the Ur-Text of Racial Politics by David M. Levy
Requirements: .PDF reader, 5.2 Mb
Overview: It is widely asserted that the Victorian sages attacked classical economics from a humanistic or egalitarian perspective, calling it “the dismal science,” and that their attack is relevant to modern discussions of market society. David M. Levy here demonstrates that these assertions are simply false: political economy became “dismal” because Carlyle, Ruskin, and Dickens were horrified at the idea that systems of slavery were being replaced by systems in which individuals were allowed to choose their own paths in life. At a minimum, they argued, “we” white people ought to be directing the lives of “them,” people of color.Economists of the time argued, on the other hand, that people of color were to be protected by the rule of law–hence the moniker “the dismal science.”A startling image from 1893, which is reproduced in full color on this book’s jacket, shows Ruskin killing someone who appears to be nonwhite. A close look reveals that the victim is reading “The Dismal Science.”Levy discusses this image at length and also includes in his text weblinks to Carlyle’s “Occasional Discourse on the Negro Question” and to Mill’s response, demonstrating that these are central documents in British classical economics. He explains Adam Smith’s egalitarian foundations, contrasting Smith’s approach to the hierarchical alternative proposed by Carlyle. Levy also examines various visual representations of this debate and provides an illuminating discussion of Smith’s “katallactics,” the science of exchange, comparing it with the foundations of modern neoclassical economics.How the Dismal Science Got Its Name also introduces the notion of “rational choice scholarship” to explain how attacks on market economics from a context in which racial slavery was idealized have been interpreted as attacks on market economics from a humanistic or egalitarian context. Thus it will greatly appeal to economists, political scientists, philosophers, students of Victorian literature, and historians.David M. Levy is Associate Professor of Economics and Research Associate, Center for Study of Public Choice, George Mason University.

The Sun’s Surface and Subsurface: Investigating Shape and Irradiance by Jean-Pierre Rozelot
Requirements: .PDF reader, 4.9 mb
Overview: Composed of a set of lectures and tutorial reviews, this book stems from a summer school devoted to the gravitational aspects of the sun and their geophysical consequences. Contribitions elaborate on the gravitational distortions of the sun which can be used to gain some knowledge of the sun’s interior and surface phenomena but which also influences the sun’s irradience and thus ultimately the earth’s climate. Last but not least, it is shown that these small distortions constitute a formidable challenge to solar astrometry, and the final part of the book describes the observational difficulties in defining unequivocally the solar diameter.

Download The Promise by Jonathan Morris (.PDF)

The Promise: God’s Purpose and Plan for When Life Hurts by Jonathan Morris
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.4 Mb
Overview: In his work as a priest and commentator for FOX News, Father Jonathan Morris has traveled to the troubled spots of the world, meeting with Muslim youth during the rioting in Paris, sitting down with populists at odds with the Church in Venezuela, and investigating human trafficking in Germany. Now Father Jonathan peels back the layers of questions that arise when someone asks, “Why me?” in response to human suffering. With an accessible voice and calming pastoral guidance, Father Jonathan leads readers through each step of suffering—from doubt and anger to healing and acceptance.

The Promise comprises three parts, each addressing a step in the process of healing. Part 1, “God on Trial,” speaks to doubts and anger that arise when we suffer and poses tough questions such as “Does God even care?” and “Why should we trust a God who allows innocent suffering?” Part 2 takes the reader on a journey of finding emotional and spiritual healing from suffering. In part 3 Father Jonathan introduces the five “Principles for Freedom-Living.” From living your personal vocation to a step-by-step guide for sketching a plan for your spiritual life, the freedom principles are practical and easily applied to everyday life. Together these five principles have the power to transform what would otherwise be useless suffering into a means of great sanctification and personal fulfillment. While pulling back the layers of philosophy and theology that surround human suffering, Father Jonathan offers not only a deeply spiritual answer but also a practical one to this most fundamental of human questions: Why do we suffer?

The Promise not only addresses how to understand and live with suffering, but also poses the toughest question regarding our relationship to God: Why do we suffer under a benevolent God? Father Jonathan delves into how we can heal from the spiritual, emotional, and even physical scars left behind by suffering. The Promise offers five principles for living a free life, or a life free of the fear that God is not there for us, and offers comfort and hope to those experiencing hard times.

Download Facing Racial Revolution by Jeremy D. Popkin (.PDF)

Facing Racial Revolution: Eyewitness Accounts of the Haitian Insurrection by Jeremy D. Popkin
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.6 Mb
Overview: The only truly successful slave uprising in the Atlantic world, the Haitian Revolution gave birth to the first independent black republic of the modern era. Inspired by the revolution that had recently roiled their French rulers, black slaves and people of mixed race alike rose up against their oppressors in a bloody insurrection that led to the burning of the colony’s largest city, a bitter struggle against Napoleon’s troops, and in 1804, the founding of a free nation.

Numerous firsthand narratives of these events survived, but their invaluable insights into the period have long languished in obscurity—until now. In Facing Racial Revolution, Jeremy D. Popkin unearths these documents and presents excerpts from more than a dozen accounts written by white colonists trying to come to grips with a world that had suddenly disintegrated. These dramatic writings give us our most direct portrayal of the actions of the revolutionaries, vividly depicting encounters with the uprising’s leaders—Toussaint Louverture, Boukman, and Jean-Jacques Dessalines—as well as putting faces on many of the anonymous participants in this epochal moment. Popkin’s expert commentary on each selection provides the necessary background about the authors and the incidents they describe, while also addressing the complex question of the witnesses’ reliability and urging the reader to consider the implications of the narrators’ perspectives.

Along with the American and French revolutions, the birth of Haiti helped shape the modern world. The powerful, moving, and sometimes troubling testimonies collected in Facing Racial Revolution significantly expand our understanding of this momentous event.

The Donkeys by Alan Clark
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 28.9 MB
Overview: The landmark exposé of incompetent leadership on the Western Front – why the British troops were lions led by donkeys

On 26 September 1915, twelve British battalions – a strength of almost 10,000 men – were ordered to attack German positions in France. In the three-and-a-half hours of the battle, they sustained 8,246 casualties. The Germans suffered no casualties at all.

Why did the British Army fail so spectacularly? What can be said of the leadership of generals? And most importantly, could it have all been prevented? In The Donkeys, eminent military historian Alan Clark scrutinises the major battles of that fateful year and casts a steady and revealing light on those in High Command – French, Rawlinson, Watson and Haig among them – whose orders resulted in the virtual destruction of the old professional British Army. Clark paints a vivid and convincing picture of how brave soldiers, the lions, were essentially sent to their deaths by incompetent and indifferent officers – the donkeys.

‘An eloquent and painful book… Clark leaves the impression that vanity and stupidity were the main ingredients of the massacres of 1915. He writes searingly and unforgettably’ Evening Standard
