Persia and The Greeks - The Defence of the West c.546-478 B.C., A. R. Burn
2 A. R. Burn Persia and The Greeks - The Defence of the West c.546-478 B.C.
Gerald Duckworth 231542 1970 Second Edition 0715617656 / 9780715617656 Softcover Very Good Condition In this volume the writer concludes a program of work undertaken many years ago, attempting to produce a readable account of the early age of Greece, from the age of the Trojan War (in Minoans, Philistines and Greeks, 1930) and the late prehistoric (in The World of Hesiod, 1936; both long out of print, and the former largely out of date), through The Lyric Age of Greece (1960), to the eve of the rise of the Athenian Empire. The rise of Greek civilisation was described in the last-named book; in the present work we begin with that of the Persians, one of the great imperial peoples of history, who deserve more sympathetic treatment than, from our inevitably and rightly phil-Hellenic point of view, they have sometimes received. The Persian Wars themselves, too, embrace much more than the great culminating episode of Xerxes' invasion, which Thucydides dismissed as 'settled by two battles at sea and two on land'. He would have been more just if he had compared that, not to the whole length of the Peloponnesian War, but to the one episode of the Sicilian expedition. The Persian wars too, together with the simultaneous struggle against Persia's allies, the Phoenicians, were a prolonged though intermittent series of campaigns, ranging in time from Cyrus' conquest of Ionia in 546 to Kimon's last campaign in Cyprus in 450, and in space extending throughout the whole length of the Mediterranean. To trace the course and connections of these campaigns, together with the rise, just in time to be the decisive factor, of the democracy of Athens and of its sea-power, is a task the more worth attempting for the fact that it has not been the subject of a full-length study since that of Grundy, published in 1899. With a postscript by D. M. Lewis. 612 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; History; ISBN: 0715617656. ISBN/EAN: 9780715617656. Inventory No: 231542.

August 1914, Alexander Solzhenitsyn
10 Alexander Solzhenitsyn August 1914
Farrar, Straus and Giroux 233060 New York 1972 0374106843 / 9780374106843 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Translated by Michael Glenny. In his monumental narrative of the outbreak of the First World War and the ill-fated Russian offensive into East Prussia, Solzhenitsyn has written what Nina Krushcheva, in The Nation, calls "a dramatically new interpretation of Russian history." The assassination of tsarist prime minister Pyotr Stolypin, a crucial event in the years leading up to the Revolution of 1917, is reconstructed from the alienating viewpoints of historical witnesses. The sole voice of reason among the advisers to Tsar Nikolai II, Stolypin died at the hands of the anarchist Mordko Bogrov, and with him perished Russia's last hope for reform. Translated by H.T. Willetts. August 1914 is the first volume of Solzhenitsyn's epic, The Red Wheel; the second is November 1916. Each of the subsequent volumes will concentrate on another critical moment or "knot," in the history of the Revolution. Translated by H.T. Willetts. Map endpapers. 622 pages.

The military successes of European imperialism are easy to explain; in many cases they were a matter of firearms against spears. But as Alfred Crosby explains in his highly original and fascinating book, the Europeans' displacement and replacement of the native peoples in the temperate zones was more a matter of biology than of military conquest. 368 pages.

Lion Publishing 236065 Great Britain 2004 074595104X / 9780745951041 Softcover Near Fine Condition Lion Histories. Augustine and his World introduces readers to the world of the early church and to Augustine of Hippo - one of the giants of Christianity. From his birth in North Africa and his days as a free-living young man, through his mid-life conversion to Christianity and career as bishop of Hippo, Augustine's story has inspired generations for over 1600 years. Augustine's greatness lay in his ability to relate the philosophies of Ancient Greece and Rome to the precepts of the Christian faith. He also saved the Church itself from disintegrating into rival factions, by forging sound doctrine in the fires of controversy. Not only did Augustine provide a basis for doctrinal unity, but he presented the Church with a vision for its role in the world. Finally, he broke new ground in personal spirituality. He probed the depths and recesses of his own heart and mind to discern the influence of God in his life, and so discovered lessons and insights for every human being. This new account of his life will be of interest to a wide readership. 191 pages. Previous owners stamp on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Collins 235423 New York 2005 0060840978 / 9780060840976 Softcover Very Good Condition Best-selling author Andy Kessler ties up the loose ends from his provocative book, Running Money, with this history of breakthrough technology and the markets that funded them.Expanding on themes first raised in his tour de force, Running Money, Andy Kessler unpacks the entire history of Silicon Valley and Wall Street, from the Industrial Revolution to computers, communications, money, gold and stock markets. These stories cut (by an unscrupulous editor) from the original manuscript were intended as a primer on the ways in which new technologies develop from unprofitable curiosities to essential investments. Indeed, How We Got Here is the book Kessler wishes someone had handed him on his first day as a freshman engineering student at Cornell or on the day he started on Wall Street. This book connects the dots through history to how we got to where we are today. 262 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
