The Day Begins at Sunset: Perceptions of Time in the Islamic World by Barbara Stowasser
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 1.4MB
Overview: The vision of Time in the Qur’an is that of a divine gift created for the benefit of humankind. Night and day, and the twelve lunar months of the year, are ‘appointed times for the believing people’. Reading the sky for the prayers of the hour has thus for Muslims been a constant reminder of God’s providence and power. In her absorbing and illuminating new book, the late Barbara Freyer Stowasser examines the various ways in which Islam has structured, ordered and measured Time. Drawing on examples from Judaism and Christianity, as well as the ancient world, the author shows that while systems of time facilitate the orderly function of vastly different civilizations, in Islam they have always been fundamental. Among other topics, she discusses the Muslim lunar calendar; the rise of the science of astronomy; the remarkable career of al-Biruni, greatest authority in Muslim perceptions of Time; and the impact of technologies like the astrolabe, Indian numerals and paper. The fullest account of the fascinating nexus between Islam and Time ever written, this is a major contribution to the wider history of ideas and religion.

Download Global Capitalism by Jeffry A. Frieden (.ePUB)

Global Capitalism: Its Fall and Rise in the Twentieth Century by Jeffry A. Frieden
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 2.MB
Overview: In 1900 international trade reached unprecedented levels and the world’s economies were more open to one another than ever before. Then as now, many people considered globalization to be inevitable and irreversible. Yet the entire edifice collapsed in a few months in 1914.

Globalization is a choice, not a fact. It is a result of policy decisions and the politics that shape them. Jeffry A. Frieden’s insightful history explores the golden age of globalization during the early years of the century, its swift collapse in the crises of 1914-45, the divisions of the Cold War world, and the turn again toward global integration at the end of the century. His history is full of character and event, as entertaining as it is enlightening.

Download Certain Victory by David C. Earhart (.PDF)

Certain Victory: Images of World War II in Japanese Media by David C. Earhart
Requirements: PDF Reader, 39.0 MB
Overview: This unique window on history employs hundreds of images and written records from Japanese periodicals during World War II to trace the nation’s transformation from a colorful, cosmopolitan empire in 1937 to a bleak “total war” society facing imminent destruction in 1945. The author draws upon his extensive collection of Japanese wartime publications to reconstruct the government-controlled media’s narrative of the war’s goals and progress – thus providing a close-up look at how the war was shown to Japanese on the home front. Many of these visual and written sources are rare in Japan and were previously unavailable in the West. Strikingly, the narrative remains consistent and convincing from victory to retreat, and even as defeat looms large. Earhart’s nuanced reading of Japan’s wartime media depicts a nation waging war against the world and a government terrorizing its own people. At once informed, scholarly, and readily accessible, this lavishly illustrated volume offers an accurate representation of the official Japanese narrative of the war in contemporary terms. The images are fresh and compelling, revealing a forgotten world by turns familiar and alien, beautiful and stark, poignant and terrifying.

The Mudd Club by Richard Boch
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 95 MB
Overview: “I was a Long Island kid that graduated college in 1976 and moved to Greenwich Village. Two years later, I was working The Mudd Club door. Standing outside, staring at the crowd, it was “out there” versus “in here” and I was on the inside. The Mudd Club was filled with the famous and soon- to- be famous, along with an eclectic core of Mudd regulars who gave the place its identity. Everyone from Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jeff Koons, and Robert Rauschenberg to Johnny Rotten, The Hell’s Angels, and John Belushi: passing through, passing out, and some, passing on. Marianne Faithful and Talking Heads, Frank Zappa, William Burroughs, and even Kenneth Anger― just a few of the names that stepped on stage. No Wave and Post- Punk artists, musicians, filmmakers, and writers living in a nighttime world on the cusp of two decades. This book is a cornucopia of memories and images, and how this famed wicked downtown club attained the status of midtown and uptown. There was nothing else like it― I met everyone, and the job quickly defined me. I thought I could handle it, and for a while, I did. “―Richard Boch

Download Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare by Damien Lewis (.ePUB)

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: How Churchill’s Secret Warriors Set Europe Ablaze and Gave Birth to Modern Black Ops by Damien Lewis
Requirements: Any ePUB Reader, 5.8 MB
Overview: From the award-winning historian, war reporter, and author Damien Lewis (Zero Six Bravo, Judy) comes the incredible true story of the top-secret “butcher-and-bolt” black ops units Prime Minister Winston Churchill assigned the task of stopping the unstoppable German war machine. Criminals, rogues, and survivalists, the brutal tactics and grit of these “deniables” would define a military unit the likes of which the world had never seen.
When France fell to the Nazis in spring 1940, Churchill declared that Britain would resist the advance of the German army—alone if necessary. Churchill commanded the Special Operations Executive to secretly develop of a very special kind of military unit that would operate on their own initiative deep behind enemy lines. The units would be licensed to kill, fully deniable by the British government, and a ruthless force to meet the advancing Germans.
The very first of these “butcher-and-bolt” units—the innocuously named Maid Honour Force—was led by Gus March-Phillipps, a wild British eccentric of high birth, and an aristocratic, handsome, and bloodthirsty young Danish warrior, Anders Lassen. Amped up on amphetamines, these assorted renegades and sociopaths undertook the very first of Churchill’s special operations—a top-secret, high-stakes mission to seize Nazi shipping in the far-distant port of Fernando Po, in West Africa.
Though few of these early desperadoes survived WWII, they took part in a series of fascinating, daring missions that changed the course of the war. It was the first stirrings of the modern special-ops team, and all of the men involved would be declared war heroes when it was all over.
The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare focuses on a dozen of these extraordinary men, weaving their stories of brotherhood, comradely, and elite soldiering into a gripping narrative yarn, from the earliest missions to Anders Lassen’s tragic death, just weeks before the end of the war.

Download The Siege by Morgan Jones and Damien Lewis (.ePUB)

The Siege: One man. 200 Al Qaeda terrorists. The rescue mission of a lifetime. by Morgan Jones and Damien Lewis
Requirements: Any ePUB Reader, 5.7 MB
Overview: 0900 hours, 11th September, 2012. Darkness cloaks the American Embassy in Libya. The flag is flying at half-mast, to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks on America. Without warning one hundred heavily armed fighters emerge from the night and blast the Embassy gates asunder.
The savage siege of the American Embassy in Libya has begun.
The mass of Al Qaeda gunmen surge through the shattered gateway and open fire. Their aim is to kill all Americans based at the Embassy, and to capture their prize, Ambassador J Christopher Stevens, alive. This is a carefully-planned attack, using overwhelming firepower and numbers. The handful of lightly armed defenders stand little chance …
Unless … On the streets outside the Embassy one man steps out of the shadows. British soldier Sgt Morgan Jones carries with him one Browning pistol, and thirty rounds of ammo – the only weaponry he can lay his hands on amidst the chaos of battle. But he also carries with him a total conviction to rescue his American brothers-in arms, or die trying.
Jones knows there’s a US Navy SEAL force based at a secret CIA annex, a short drive away. But will they make it to the Embassy in time, through streets awash with enemy fighters? Only he knows the secret ways in to the complex, and he will never be able to live with himself if he leaves his American brothers hanging.
So begins the rescue mission of a lifetime, an epic from which few will emerge unscathed. Lone Warrior is an edge of the seat rollercoaster ride of savagery and courage beyond measure. It is the Black Hawk Down of the 21st Century.
