This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. Sometimes a few dedicated heroes can turn a spark of change into a firestorm of rebellion. Such was the case during the Protestant Reformation, when courageous souls stood against oppression, changing the way we approach religion even today. In Freedom at Stake, men and women consumed with passion and dedication incite turmoil among traditional thinkers and established powers. They inspire change across Europe, from peasants and farmers to popes and kings. But as they bravely fan the flames, can they help but get burnt? Do their risks pay off, or do their actions consume them? In these fiery years, everything is at stake—freedom, liberty, and even life.

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. A “stunning blend of reportage, travelogue, history and meditation” by the New York Times–bestselling author of King Leopold’s Ghost (Publishers Weekly). National Book Award finalist Adam Hochschild brings a lifetime’s familiarity with South Africa to bear in this eye-opening examination of a critical turning point in that nation’s history: the Great Trek of 1836–39, during which Dutch-speaking white settlers, known as Boers, journeyed deep into the country’s interior to escape the British colonial administration. The mass migration culminated with the massacre of indigenous Zulus in the 1838 Battle of Blood River. Looking at the tensions of modern South Africa through the dramatic prism of the nineteenth century, Hochschild vividly recreates the battle—and its contentious commemoration by rival groups 150 years later. In his epilogue, Hochschild extends his view to the astonishing political changes that have occurred in the country in recent decades—and the changes yet to be made. Hochschild’s incisive take on these events, noted Nadine Gordimer, “is far more than an outsider’s perception of the drama of our country. Read him, in particular, to understand the rise of white extremism which is threatening the democratic vision of the African National Congress and its allied progressive constituency among people of all colors.” “A good book for anyone who wants a succinct and precise account of how this fascinating country has got where it is. . . . This is a book I recommend warmly.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu “One of the most illuminating books ever written on contemporary South Africa.” —Publishers Weekly “Thoroughly researched, immensely readable . . . A work of vivid reportage and astute political analysis.” —San Francisco Chronicle

Caressing each other they had a feeling of déjà vu. After sometimes, the warmth started engulfing their bodies as well giving color to their faces. There was an insidious openness between them by now and he was surprised, when she suddenly pounced upon him and holding his face in both hands, with her mouth slightly open pressed her lips tightly against his and started sucking his lower lip. This chivalry aroused him too and the hooliganism started with full force. Both were fresh after the sound sleep in the afternoon. She seemed to be nearing the perpetual destination and begged with painful hilarity to hurry up. Within a few seconds, she gave a loud cry followed by a deafening silence as if the whole universe had come to a standstill. They felt as if they were falling abysmally beneath the deep earth in a bottomless gorge without any hope of survival. He pinched his own shoulder to see whether he was alive or not?

FREEDOM..AT LAST chronicles the journey of an ordinary family of immigrants arriving to United States from Communist Romania. Held captive for than twenty-years by a dictatorship regime, the author discovered the benefits of freedom in his country of adoption, and walks boldly through plenty of experiences. The author wrote this book with the belief that the reader would voyage with him from the first day when he left his native country, sharing impressions compiled over the years of adventures, travels and observations. He cant pretend to be an ordinary person lucky enough to fulfill his dreams. In order to validate not only the travel experiences, but also the events that converged in their day to day life, the book touches the authors financial and social status evolution in America. It would encounter his struggles of making a living, successes and defeats, a tragedy, and many other events told with wit or sadness-as they happened. A typical biography would start from the first days of a persons life, yet this narrative began only when Border family arrived in the free world and ended thirteen years later, when their son Lt. lee border lost his life in the service of US Army. From now on, life will never be the same.

In The Light Of New Research And Facts, Several Age-Old, Deliberate But Fallacious Assumptions And Constructs Have Been Deconstructed. In The Process Of This Analysis Several Gaps Have Been Detected And The Underlying Aims Of The Imperialist Efforts Have Been Exposed. On The Top Of It, Various Sophisticated Versions Of The Theories Of Civilizing Mission And Whiteman S Burden In The Post-Colonial Context Have Been Challenged On Several Counts. In Spite Of Several Changes In The Imperialist Writings, It Has Been Found That Even The Neo-Imperial Historians Have Been Extending Their Support To The Several Myths, Deliberately Created By The Orthodox Imperial Ideologues About India S Past And Present.

Download The Iconography of Independence by Robert Holland PDF/Ebook Free clicking on the below button will initiate the downloading process of The Iconography of Independence by Robert Holland. This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. This book explores the phenomenon of Independence Days. These rituals had complex meanings both in the territories concerned and in Britain as the imperial metropole, where they were extensively reported in the press. The text is concerned with the political management, associated rhetoric and iconography of these seminal celebrations. The focus is therefore very much on political culture in a broad sense, and changing perceptions and presentations over time. Highlights of the book include an overview by David Cannadine relating the topic to ornamentalism, invented tradition and transitions in British culture. Although the book is mainly concerned with the British Empire, Martin Shipway – a leading historian and cultural analyst of French decolonization – contributes an acute summary of how the same ‘moment’ was handled differently in the other great European empires. There are detailed and lively studies by noted specialists of the immediate coming of Independence to India/Pakistan, Malaya, Ghana, Zimbabwe, and Guyana. The book includes a thematic focus on the important role of representatives of the British monarchy in legitimating transfers of sovereignty at their point of climax. This book was published as a special issue of The Round Table.
