August 1914, Alexander Solzhenitsyn
7 Alexander Solzhenitsyn August 1914
Penguin Books 238443 Great Britain 1985 Reprint 014003739X / 9780140037395 Softcover 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. 645 pages.

Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900, Alfred W. Crosby
9 Alfred W. Crosby Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900
Cambridge University Press 232555 USA 1991 0521336139 / 9780521336130 Softcover Very Good Condition People of European descent form the bulk of the population in most of the temperate zones of the world - North America, Australia and New Zealand. 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.

13 Andy Kessler How We Got Here: A Slightly Irreverent History of Technology & Markets
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.

Jewels and Ashes, Arnold Zable
18 Arnold Zable Jewels and Ashes
Scribe 228112 Melbourne 0908011202 / 9780908011209 Softcover Good Condition Romance and terror, light and shadow, replicas and originals, hover side by side, seeking reconciliation, while within me there is a sense of awe and a silent refrain- I am here, at last I am here; and it is far more beautiful than I had imagined. And far more devastating. Yet, somehow, never have I felt so much at peace. In the twenty-five years since it was published, Jewels and Ashes has become a classic, a book that has stood the test of time. Compelled by the momentum of memory, the unsettling fragments of ancestral stories told him as a child, Arnold Zable travels to the Eastern European countryside of his parents' remembrance, the terrain of his dreams and imagination, where he retraces the steps of the generations before him. Miraculously, it is this journey to the past that allows Zable to understand the present - the inner lives of those who, like his parents, survived the hatred but lost every trace of his family and former lives. Arnold Zable has articulated, exquisitely, the haunted consciousness of the next generation. An astonishing achievement, this is a lyrical, transcendent, luminous work. 210 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Autobiography::Memoir; Australia; Biography & Autobiography; History. ISBN: 0908011202. ISBN/EAN: 9780908011209.
