Committee of Detail : A Constitutional Ghost Story

By: Sam Walker

A fictional tale of politics and historical truth … about a courageous Latina woman who becomes president of the United States, the natural born citizen clause, and James Wilson, a founding father who wrote most of the Constitution in one heroic day, only to be utterly forgotten by American history.

“Madam President,” the old man says. “I beg you to excuse my appearance. You see, I have not eaten or changed clothes or bathed for 230 years, and I know it shows. However, I pray that my offensive physical figure will not diminish the message I bring to you."

The Legacy of James Cook : The Story of the Bay of Islands: The St...

By: Dr. Brian J. S. Harley

"The Legacy of James Cook" tells the story of the Bay of Islands, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

The west coast of Newfoundland still seems a remote area of the island to many Canadians and sometimes even to those living on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland. Its development proceeded quite differently from the rest of Newfoundland for complex reasons detailed in this book. Permanent settlement only started in the 18th century. When James Cook produced the first accurate map of the area after his visit in 1767, he recorded no signs of settlement in the Bay of Isla...

Finding Out Compass : Reflections on a World in Crisis: Reflection...

By: Dr. Chris Wright

In a series of freewheeling reflections and summaries of historical scholarship, this book reinterprets history and culture along anarchist lines. From a rationalistic and Marxian point of view it illuminates capitalism, economics, U.S. history, popular culture, gender relations, and human psychology, even the nature of the fascinating concepts "genius" and "greatness." Its agenda is that of the seventeenth-century Levellers: deflate the pomposities of elite authority, a...

Our civilization is approaching the end. We’re peering over the precipice, and chaos boils below. The time has come to sum it all up, to take account of where we are and what we’ve done, and to pass judgment. We, the generations now living, have been lucky or unlucky enough to be present as history nears its climax; we have an abundance of human experience to survey and draw conclusions from, conclusions to pass on to posterity as it surveys the even more breathtaking ru...

Worker Cooperatives and Revolution : History and Possibilities in ...

By: Dr. Chris Wright

Social democracy is dead and can't be revived. The solidarity economy is the hope for the world's future, and Marxism provides the intellectual tools to interpret and predict its growth.

The capitalist mode of production does not permit a socially efficient allocation of resources. Resource allocation is determined by the twin structural imperatives of having purchasing power (on the demand side) and of chasing profit (on the supply side). If one has a need but lacks the money to back up that need, as for example the billion children worldwide living in poverty do, one’s need will not be met by the market. Conversely, investors will pursue only those pro...

Царица Аталья

By: Дан Берг

Настоящая повесть является свободной интерпретацией Библейского предания. Автор произведения на сюжет из древности имеет известные преимущества как перед историком, так и перед толкователем Священного Писания. В отличие от первого, сочинитель не обязан искать истину – смело и не смущаясь он создает ее сам. Не в пример второму, связанному догматами своего религиозного братства, беллетрист не опутан цепями лояльности.

Malabar Manual : Along with commentary by VED from VICTORIA INSTI...

By: William Logan; VED from VICTORIA INSTITUTIONS, Editor

COMMENTARY My aim First of all, I would like to place on record what my interest in this book is. I do not have any great interest in the minor details of Malabar or Travancore. Nor about the various castes and their aspirations, claims and counterclaims. My interest is basically connected to my interest in the English colonial rule in the South Asian Subcontinent and elsewhere. I would quite categorically mention that it is ‘English colonialism’ and not Britis...

أسرار التاريخ في القران الكريم : شيفرة القرآن: شيفرة القرآن

By: هشام أمين المصري; هشام أمين المصري

فقد تبين أن كتاب الله (القرآن الكريم) يحوي بين دفتيه من المعلومات التاريخية المشفرة ما يعجز عن الاتيان بها أحد من البشر, وهذا دليل قطعي على صحة القرآن وأنه لا يمكن أن يكون الا من عند خالق البشر اذ لا يعلم الغيب الا هو, والا كيف نفسر احتواءه على تواريخ أنبياء الله ورسله وتواريخ بعض الفراعنه ومعظم تواريخ بني اسرائيل التي هم فيها مختلفون.

هو دليل على أنه لم يحدث أي تغيير أو تغيير في القرآن الكريم ، أو زيادة أو نقصان منذ الوحي (حوالي 1400 منذ سنوات) حتى يومنا هذا ؛ وأن الرسول محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم قد أكمل ما أنزل عليه.

By: Hisham Ameen Al Masri; Hisham Ameen Al Masri

The Holy Quran contains many and many secrets and encrypted information about history, dates and figures and possibly future events or scientific facts and this is what this book tries to address.

It is a proof that there hasn’t been any change or alteration in the Holy Quran, or increase or decrease since its revelation (about 1400 years ago) till present day; and that the Prophet Muhammad, (p) has delivered the fullest what has been revealed to him.

1997 - Operacioni ushtarak veteshkaterrues i ushtrise shqiptare : ...

By: Gani Elezi

Kjo qe një një ngjarje pa precedent të mëparshëm, qoftë edhe në vende të tjera të botës, pra qe një “prodhim shqiptar”, që na habiti dhe na tronditi fort. Na tronditi për faktin se një gjë e tillë vinte në dyshim aftësinë e ushtrisë sonë për të përballuar situata të rënda, siç ndodhi në ngjarjet e muajve mars, prill të vitit 1997, jo përkundrejt masave të popullit tonë, siç ndodhi në këtë rast, por sidomos përballë rreziqeve që, eventualisht, mund të na vinin nga agresor...

KREU i PARE USHTRIA JONE DERI NE FILLIM TE VITEVE -90-të Deri në fund të vitit 1991 ushtria jonë ishte një Armatë e madhe me aftësi të konsiderueshme luftarake. Pa përmendur të dhëna të hollësishme do të evidentoj disa tregues të përgjithëshëm dhe opinione personale që janë të mjaftueshme për të vërtetuar atë që thashë më lart, për aftësitë e saj ushtarake. Në përbërjen e saj, ishin 22 divizione këmbësorie,1 divizion xhenjoje, Komanda e Mbrojtjes Kundërajrore, Komand...

Tej Euforise

By: Gani Elezi

Problemet ushtarake lindin dhe zhvillohen bashkë me problemet e tjera shqetësuese të shoqërisë, të çdo vendi në veçanti, e natyrisht kërkojnë zgjidhjen e duhur. Si në çdo fushë, edhe në atë të mbrojtjes (të luftës) veprojnë faktorë, që duhet të njihen dhe të vlerësohen objektivisht. Qëndrimi i drejtë apo subjektiv ndaj tyre, vlerësimi ose shpërfillja e këtyre faktorëve, ka të bëjë me suksesin ose disfatën në një luftë të mundshme. Kësisoj, një mendësi e tillë për proble...

ARTI USHTARAK I LUFTËS POPULLORE Në kuadrin e punës që u bë për të eliminuar pasojat e grupit armiqësor në ushtri, masa më e rëndësishme ishte hartimi i tekstit të Artit Ushtarak të Luftës Popullore, i cili u botua dhe u dha në përdorim të ushtrisë në vitin 1975. Ky është dokumenti më i rëndësishëm dhe më me vlerë i hartuar ndonjëherë në vendin tonë në fushën e mendimit ushtarak, në fushën e organizimit, përgatitjes dhe drejtimit të veprimeve luftarake, në shkallën tak...

Kur përgatiteshim për mbrojtje : kujtime dhe refleksione

By: Gani Elezi

Këto shënime po i hedh në leter jo me synimin për t’i botuar apo për të marrë tituj shkencorë, siç ndodh në këso rastesh. Janë thjesht impresione, meditime, por edhe reflektime për aktivitetin tim të gjatë në ushtri, që nga mosha fëminore, kur fillova mësimet në shkollën ushtarake "Skënderbeg", në shtator të vitit 1961 dhe deri në moshën 46 vjeçare, në vitin 1993 kur, në kuadrin e reformës së zhvilluar në ushtri, u lirova nga rradhët e saj. Duke hedhur këto shënime, m...

Shkolla ushtarake “Skënderbeg” ishte një shkollë me efektiv të madh nxënësish dhe mësuesish. Kështu, psh, në vitin 1961, kur unë fillova mësimet pranë saj, viti i parë ishte i organizuar në 10 klasa, me nga 38 apo 40 nxënës secila, çka do të thotë që vetëm një paralele, siç quhej një vit i shkollës, kishte 380–400 nxënës. Ndërsa po të llogarisësh të katër vitet, paralelet, del se shkolla kishte më shumë se 1200 nxënës.Veç nxënësve, në shkollë punonin një numër i madh ku...

Historia de la Iglesia Católica en China desde 1900 hasta hoy.

« La religión católica, como sabéis, no contradice a ninguna doctrina que sea verdadera, a ninguna institución pública o privada que tenga como fundamento la justicia, la libertad y la caridad, sino que todo esto resulta alentado, realzado y perfeccionado por ella. No se opone a la índole natural de ningún pueblo, a sus costumbres peculiares, ni a su civilización, que benévolamente las acoge y con ellas como con nuevos y variados adornos se embellece ».
