A Concise History of Japan (Cambridge Concise Histories)
2015 | 366 Pages | ISBN: 1107004187 , 052117872X | EPUB | 4 MB
To this day, Japan's modern ascendancy challenges many assumptions about world history, particularly theories regarding the rise of the west and why the modern world looks the way it does. In this engaging new history, Brett L. Walker tackles key themes regarding Japan's relationships with its minorities, state and economic development, and the uses of science and medicine. The book begins by tracing the country's early history through archaeological remains, before proceeding to explore life in the imperial court, the rise of the samurai, civil conflict, encounters with Europe, and the advent of modernity and empire. Integrating the pageantry of a unique nation's history with today's environmental concerns, Walker's vibrant and accessible new narrative then follows Japan's ascension from the ashes of World War II into the thriving nation of today. It is a history for our times, posing important questions regarding how we should situate a nation's history in an age of environmental and climatological uncertainties.

Peter Hopkirk - Alla conquista di Lhasa
2008 | ISBN: 8845923088 | Italiano | 378 Pages | EPUB | 2 MB
Quando nel 1982, usc— "Alla conquista di Lhasa", molti trovarono semplicemente entusiasmante la rievocazione della corsa, fra la fine dell'Ottocento e i primi decenni del Novecento, per la conquista di quello che ancora era, nell'immaginazione popolare, il Paradiso Perduto: il Tibet. Ma a chi lo sa davvero leggere il racconto di Hopkirk suggerisce anche qualcos'altro, e cio— ad esempio il senso di una credenza antichissima, secondo la quale chi conquista il Tibet conquista, semplicemente, il mondo, oltre alla strana sensazione che le tensioni globali, se accostate a quello che ancora oggi rimane il loro misterioso e segreto epicentro, non siano che epifenomeni marginali.

Viktor Suvorov - Aquarium: The Career and Defection of a Soviet Military Spy
1985 | ISBN: 0241115450 | English | 249 Pages | PDF | 1.9 MB

Antony C. Sutton - The Best Enemy Money Can Buy
1986 | ISBN: 1939438233, 0937765015 | English | 158 Pages | PDF | 0.6 MB
In the mid-1970's, the original version of this book led to the destruction of Antony Sutton's career as a salaried academic researcher with the prestigious (and therefore, not quite ideologically tough enough) Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace. That was a high price for Sutton to pay, but not nearly so high as the price you and I are going to be asked to pay because of the activities that this book describes in painstaking detail.
