Behind the Scenes: Formerly a Slave (Thirty Years a Slave, and Four Years in The White House)

Behind the Scenes, Formerly a Slave, By Elizabeth Keckley, Thirty Years a Slave, and Four Years in The White House, Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley (sometimes spelled Keckly; February 1818 - May 1907)[2] was a former slave who became a successful seamstress, civic activist and author in Washington, DC. She was best known as the personal modiste and confidante of Mary Todd Lincoln, the First Lady. Keckley had moved to Washington in 1860 after buying her freedom and that of her son in St. Louis. She created an independent business in the capital based on clients who were the wives of the government elite. Among them were Varina Davis, wife of Jefferson Davis; and Mary Anna Custis Lee, wife of Robert E. Lee. After the American Civil War, Keckley wrote and published an autobiography, Behind the Scenes: Or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House (1868). It was both a slave narrative and a portrait of the First Family, especially Mary Todd Lincoln, and considered controversial for breaking privacy about them. It was also her claim as a businesswoman to be part of the new mixed-race, educated middle-class that were visible among the leadership of the black community. Keckley's relationship with Mary Todd Lincoln, the President's wife, was notable for its personal quality and intimacy, as well as its endurance over time.

A Short History of Warren Buffett

This digest captures Warren Buffet's way of life, his business sense and principles and the secrets to his success.

The story begins when Buffett was six years old, intrigued by the ideas of risk and probability. At age 11, he was already dabbling in trading having bought three shares of Cities Services for himself and three for his sister. In 1964, he bought Berkshire Hathaway, a Massachusetts textile firm and he managed to grow it to the 12th largest company in the US.

One of the greatest investors the world has known, this digest captures intimate details of his life and successes.

Re-Runners First Life: First Life: Volume 1

If you had the chance to go back and relive the last 25 years of your life, retaining all the knowledge and memories you have now; would you make different life choices? Three very different people from different locations, die at the same moment in time and re-awaken at that moment, only it is 25 years earlier. Two men and one woman are reborn in their young and healthy bodies, but their minds retain the memories of their previous lifetime. Will the abused wife choose a different path? Will the stockbroker choose a different wife? Will the serial killer continue on his spree of murder? Follow the journey of three Re-Runners; Kate, Dylan and Christian through this series of rediscovery, changing fates and finding each other. Interview with the Author Q - So, what makes the Re-Runners Series special? A - They say that in the world of stories, there are no NEW ideas and maybe that's true. But I don't think there's been a series of books on this subject, done quite like this before. I'm sure plenty of people have thought - 'If I knew what I know now and could go back and do it all over again - Wow, the things I could achieve. Righting wrongs, avoiding the mistakes of your 'first life'... So many possibilities.' Q - It's an interesting concept, but what genre does the Re-Runner series come under? A - That's a difficult one. It's a mix of the kind of books I like to read, and I like to read everything. First up it's a paranormal time travel book, in the sense that initially the story chronicles the lives of three people, their death and their rebirth. There's also the element of thriller horror with the grisly murders committed by the serial killer, suspense when the FBI and LA detectives are tracking the infamous murderer and of course the mystery of how and why this re-living of lives has happened to them. These three people from different countries (Australia and the US... and later Italy) are thrown into repeating their lives, but retaining all of the knowledge of th

Vanished: More Chilling True Stories of Missing Persons - Volume 2

People go missing every day. According to newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, this figure could be as high as 8 million people every single year. While some people are quickly found or return home of their own accord, others simply vanish into the night. Families are left wondering where their loved ones have gone while the police desperately try to put together any clues they come across. While a good number of people make it home safe and sound, others are never seen again.

The aim of this book is to examine the details of the missing. By looking into names, dates, backgrounds, causes, and explanations, we hope to gain insight into the myriad reasons people might have for disappearing. Of course, some people want to vanish while others have the decision made on their behalf. Murder, bankruptcy, gangsters, money, and love. Sometimes, the reasons are never known. What is clear, however, is just how difficult it can be to find someone who does not want to be found.

Some of these cases have become famous, some of them have become legendary. A few of them might be entirely unknown. We will cover the stories of people like James Squillante, Michael Rockefeller, Richey Edwards, and Bruno Breguet. We will meet gangsters, hitmen, rock stars, and regular working people. As we will discover, missing people come in all shapes and sizes. Often, though, it is the paths they take that differentiate them from the rest. These are a selected few of the most interesting, worrying, and captivating stories of people who have vanished.

Serial Killers: 2 in 1 Box Set: Exploring the Horrific Crimes of Little Known Murderers

Serial killer as a term can be difficult to define. Different criminal investigation units typically require two, three, or more attributable killings over a period of time before an individual can be considered to have joined the ranks of the serial killers. However, it is not really the numbers which can interest so many people and scare others. Instead, it is the often random nature of the killings. Rather than crimes of passion, crimes of financial reward, or instances when an individual has reached the end of their emotional tether, the crimes of serial killers have often been planned days, weeks, or months in advance. Targets can be random, but the killings are often planned in great detail. From cannibalism to mental health concerns, from ritualistic witchcraft to a simple interest in violence, learning what motivates these people can offer both insight and further confusion.

Serial killers are big business. From the countless books, films, and television programs to the 24-hour news networks, there is something about these mass murderers that catches the eye and catches the attention. While many people are familiar with the better-known killers like John Wayne Gacy or Jack the Ripper, this is not the end of the story. There are so many examples of serial killers from around the world that many of them have simply been forgotten about.

But that does not make their crimes any less serious. Instead, some of these serial killers committed heinous acts above and beyond those we have come to expect when thinking about the worst psychopaths in living memory. In cases such as these, the truth is often stranger than fiction. For every Hannibal Lecter or Norman Bates, the murders committed by the people detailed in this book are often more extreme, violent, and off-putting than anything you might find in fiction.

Nikola Tesla: Imagination and the Man That Invented the 20th Century

If you want to learn about one of history's most fascinating minds and uncover some of his secrets of imagination--secrets that enabled him to invent machines light years ahead of his time and literally bring light to the world--then you want to read this book.

Imagination amplifies and colors every other element of genius, and unlocks our potential for understanding and ability.

Few stories better illustrate this better than the life of the father of the modern world, a man of legendary imaginative power and wonder: Nikola Tesla.

In this book, you'll be taken on a whirlwind journey through Tesla's life and work, and not only learn about the successes and mistakes of one of history's greatest inventors, but also how to look at the world in a different, more imaginative way.

Read this book now and learn lessons from Nikola Tesla on why imagination is so vital to awakening your inner genius, and insights into the real "secret" to creativity, as explained by people like Jobs, Picasso, Dali, and Twain.

A very green Donkey: Snippets: Authentic & Uncensored from a Woman Scientist's Memoir

This light-hearted scientist's memoir contains a selection of authentic episodes and views. Some 40 snippets illustrate how things were seen and done in the past century: not as an autobiography but as authentic fragments of a life in retrospect. Some snippets focus on boarding-school life in England in the 1940s, growing up in World War II, life as an impecunious student in London and generation gaps between now and then (some hilarious). The last century is given critical attention.

A BSc in physics was followed by a PhD in biophysics from King's College London University. Other snippets describe the comic, sometimes perilous experiences of the young aspiring research scientist at home and abroad. These included astonishing taxi rides in Luxembourg, Mumbai, Cairo, New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro. From the National Research Council in Ottawa various appointments led to the Columbia Medical Center in New York, a Cancer Institute in Paris and the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna which included running seminars in India, Argentina, Brazil, the States, the USSR and the continent of Europe.

Disconcerting incidents sometimes revealed humorous aspects in retrospect: even an (abandoned) suicide or getting in the wrong car, boat or train abroad. The German Bundesbahn actually held up two trains for her. Ultimately, it all led up to a greater ability to laugh at herself - and life!

How to Be a Pop Star

Olivia Redmond is a London-based singer with a keen eye for style and a pout that just won't quit. All she's ever wanted is to be a singer, and believe me, the girl can sing. At the age of 16, young Olivia was a member of SoundGirl, a three-piece female band that recorded teenage anthems about boys and heartbreak and even opened for Justin Bieber. But when the group split up in April 2012, a story as common as any in the music business, Olivia decided instead of just giving up and taking the easy road, she would go solo and pursue her dream of a solo career.

Introducing Liv. Popular culture as we know it would crash and burn without the pop star, that over-the-top and often enigmatic figure of the music industry who makes music to confirm our emotions and identities and to soundtrack our sex and workout sessions. But are pop stars born, or are they manufactured? Over the past 30 years, we've had a number of hit star-making shows on television aimed to find the next hottest pop star, from Star Search and Popstars to American Idol and The Voice. But these shows are really just popularity contests. How to Be a Pop Star follows the real journey of one pop singer as she deals with the realities of the contemporary music industry and how she stays true to herself in the process. Meet the girl behind the image.

Bought and Sold (Part 1 of 3)

A heart-stopping story of lies, brutality and fear. British girl Megan Stephens tells the true story of how an idyllic Mediterranean holiday turned into an unimaginable nightmare when she was tricked into becoming a victim of human trafficking and held captive for six years by deception, threats and violence.

While on holiday with her mother at a popular Mediterranean coastal resort, Megan fell in love. Just 14 years old, nave and vulnerable, she had no reason to suspect that the man who said he loved her would commit the ultimate betrayal of her trust.

When her mother returned to England, Megan stayed with Jak, who said he would find her a job as a waitress and promised they would be together forever. But when Megan travelled to the city with Jak, his attitude quickly changed and instead of finding her work as a waitress, he allowed her to be raped and then sold her to a human trafficker.

Abandoned by Jak but still unable to accept that everything he'd told her had been a lie, Megan was coerced by threats and violence into working as a prostitute in private homes and brothels. Then the trafficker threatened her mother's life and it was Megan's turn to lie: sending her mother the staged photographs that had been taken of her apparently working as a waitress in a cafe, she told her she was happy.

Too frightened and bewildered to trust or reach out to anyone, Megan remained locked in a world of brutality and abuse for six years. In the end, there only seemed to be one way out.

Megan's powerful story reveals the devastating realities of human trafficking and the fear that imprisons its victims more effectively than any cage could ever do.

The Autobiography of St Ignatius Loyola

This account of the life of St. Ignatius, dictated by himself, is considered by the Bollandists the most valuable record of the great Founder of the Society of Jesus. The editors of the Stimmen Aus Maria Laach, the German review, as well as those of the English magazine, The Month, tell us that it, more than any other work, gives an insight into the spiritual life of St. Ignatius. Few works in ascetical literature, except the writings of St. Teresa and St. Augustine, impart such a knowledge of the soul. To understand fully the Spiritual Exercises, we should know something of the man who wrote them. In this life of St. Ignatius, told in his own words, we acquire an intimate knowledge of the author of the Exercises. We discern the Saint's natural disposition, which was the foundation of his spiritual character. We learn of his conversion, his trials, the obstacles in his way, the heroism with which he accomplished his great mission. This autobiography of St. Ignatius is the groundwork of all the great lives of him that have been written. Bartoli draws from it, Genelli develops it, the recent magnificent works of Father Clair, S.J., and of Stewart Rose are amplifications of this simple story of the life of St. Ignatius. The Saint in his narrative always refers to himself in the third person, and this mode of speech has here been retained. Many persons who have neither the time, nor, perhaps, the inclination, to read larger works, will read, we trust, with pleasure and profit this autobiography. Ignatius, as he lay wounded in his brother's house, read the lives of the saints to while away the time. Touched by grace, he cried, "What St. Francis and St. Dominic have done, that, by God's grace, I will do." May this little book, in like manner, inspire its readers with the desire of imitating St. Ignatius. THE EDITOR. Easter, 1900. College of St. Francis Xavier, New York.

Public Enemies: 5 True Crime Gangster Stories from the Roaring Twenties(Vol 1)

Do you like true crime stories?



Public Enemies - True Crime Gangster Stories from the Roaring Twenties

From the era of gangsters, molls and prohibition, almost (but not quite), lost in the mists of time, these tales romp along with plenty of action and recreate the atmosphere of this exciting and dangerous era using the vernacular of the times.



You'll have heard of most of these notorious criminals, but possibly not so much about one or two of them. All of them were real, ruthless hoodlums, and all had their "15 minutes of fame", leaving trails of death and mayhem behind them. Most did not live to an old age, and those that did were probably in jail.

Their escapades were daring and reckless and many paid the ultimate price in the end.

Volume 1 contains

Lucky Luciano -From Streetwise Kid to the Father of Organized Crime

Leaving poverty ravaged Sicily for New York with his family at the age of 10; Lucky was running his own protection racket and making a name for himself whilst still in his teens. Inevitably, he moved on to become the undisputed boss of organized crime in the USA, but it was his own 'family's' involvement in prostitution which landed him a jail sentence of 30 to 50 years. It didn't end there however as he continued to run the family affairs from prison where Lady Luck visited him with an offer he couldn't refuse.



Bugsy Siegel and "The Flamingo Hotel"

Through his gambling and bootlegging operations, plus numerous ruthless contract murders, Bugsy Siegel established himself as a key member of "The Syndicate" in New York. Relocating to Las Vegas with the blessing of Lucky Luciano in 1945 to expand the organizations activities, he built the famous Flamingo Club and Casino in the desert of Las Vegas using money provided by the East Coast mobsters. The hopelessly mismanaged project went way over budget, implicating Bugsy in the 'misappropriation' of funds and enraging his bosses - Bugsy's day were numbered.

Dutch Schultz - Beer Baron and Vicious Killer

From the slums of New York, Dutch Schultz rose through the ranks of crime to be named "the nation's top gangster" by the FBI. Claiming to be a good guy simply supplying people with the beer they wanted, (illegally of course), he was also responsible for killing at least two of his own men he suspected of 'skimming' more of the proceeds than was due to them.



Hymies Weiss - The Man Al Capone Feared

Earl Wojciechowski was born on Jan 25th 1898 in Chicago, but over time became known as Hymie Weiss, eventually teaming up with Dean O'Banion the leader of the North Side Gang who he succeeded after his murder in 1924. Hymie swore to avenge his friends death and waged wore on the Torrio-Capone criminal empire, even attempting to assassinate Capone himself. Violent gun battles on the streets of Chicago were regular occurrences during this period as the gangs fought for control of the lucrative bootlegging and other rackets - things had to come to a head sooner or later.

Wilbur Underhill - The Tri-State Terror

It took a 24 man task force to bring down Mad Dog Wilbur Underhill in the end. During 12 years of rampaging through the Southwest he was sentenced to life for a murder in Oklahoma, and received another life sentence in Kansas after escaping jail in a ten man breakout and murdering a policeman. Suspected of involvement in the famous Kansas City Massacre, Wilbur began his life of crime as a burglar, and quickly moved on to armed robbery and murder.

When Hollywood screenwriter Chris Easterly's wife came clean about her affair, his mind went blank. And so began the long, unimaginably difficult reconstruction of his life after marriage. Relentlessly honest and profoundly moving, 'Falling Forward' explores the emotional journey of one man's divorce, from his wife's affair to the seemingly bottomless grief that followed to his eventual healing and the realization that he would survive." -- Amazon synopsis

TRUE CRIME: WOMEN SERIAL KILLERS

Our society can barely account for evil in males, let alone imagine it in females. The female nests, creates, and nurtures doesn't she or is it that we just want to believe in the intrinsic non-threatening nature of women?

Yet, history is full of instrumentally violent women: women who have fought wars and battles throughout the world, with no less ferociousness than men, women such as Dynamis of Bosphorous, who starved her husband to death and took control of his kingdom, or Artemisia, the queen of Halicarnassus in the 5th century, who conducted a brilliant but brutal military campaign against the Greeks. Mary Tudor, Queen Mary 1 of England, in 1553 became known as "Bloody Mary," for her extreme cruelty and willingness to execute people.

In this short book meet 17 less known but equally murderous cold blooded women. After reading it you may find your perception of the gentler sex changed irrevocably. Enjoy.

Constance Street: Part 1 of 3: The true story of one family and one street in London’s East End

Constance Street can either be read as a full-length eBook or in 3 serialised eBook-only parts.

This is PART 1 of 3.

You can read Part 1 two weeks ahead of release of the full-length eBook and paperback.

One forgotten street, 12 unforgettable women.

Through the story of one street - Constance Street - we hear the true life tales of a tight-knit group of working class women in the East End of London set against a backdrop of war, hardship and struggle.

It's a story of matriarchy and deep family ties, of a generation that was scattered away from the street during the blitz bombings, but which maintained the ties of that street for decades afterwards.

Set in an area of East London called Silvertown, a once thriving docking community that at the turn of the 20th century was the industrial heartland of the south of England; the story focuses on the lives of 12 incredible women and their struggle to survive amidst the chaos of the war years.

We have Nellie Greenwood, the author's great grandmother who runs a laundry in Silvertown which becomes the focal point of the community. In 1917 a munitions factory in Silvertown explodes flattening much of the surrounding area and causing extensive damage to Constance Street - Nellie's daughter is blown from her crib but miraculously survives.

Deciding to open the laundry as a field hospital for the injured, Nellie and the women on the street come together to tend the wounded, the sick and the emotionally shattered as they cope with the aftermath of not just one but two world wars.

Through the Great War, the roaring Twenties, the Depression and then the unimaginable - the outbreak of a second world war - Nellie and the street survive with love, laughter and friendships that bind the community together. But just as this incredible group of women live through the worst, the unthinkable happens. On 7 September 1940, Constance Street is no more.

Following in the footsteps of Farewell to the East End by Jennifer Worth and The Sugar Girls, Constance Street is a life-affirming, heart-warming read that reminds us of a time when people pulled together.

Of course he did it his way, as he reveals in the extracts featured in Unscripted Extras. He describes why he can never be scripted, remembers some of his famous putdowns in the boardroom and cringes at a lead balloon moment. He also explains to a baggy-jumpered beanie-hat-wearing young director that he will not be spending all day filming a five-minute trail and refuses to let Piers Morgan make him cry.

Justin was five years old; his brothers two and three. Their mother, a heroin addict, had left them alone again. Later that day, after trying to burn down the family home, Justin was taken into care.

Six years on, after 20 failed placements, Justin arrives at Casey's home. Casey and her husband Mike are specialist foster carers. They practice a new style of foster care that focuses on modifying the behaviour of profoundly damaged children. They are Justin's last hope, and it quickly becomes clear that they are facing a big challenge.

Try as they might to make him welcome, he seems determined to strip his life of all the comforts they bring him, violently lashing out at schoolmates and family and throwing any affection they offer him back in their faces.

A visit to Justin's mother on Boxing Day reveals that there are some very dark underlying problems that Justin has never spoken about. As the full picture becomes clearer, and the horrific truth of Justin's early life is revealed, Casey and her family finally start to understand the pain he has suffered...

George Washington: A Life From Beginning to End (President Biographies Book 1)

George Washington

* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *

Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.

George Washington, the first president of the United States, is much more than a monument on Mount Rushmore. Who was Washington, the general, president, and husband? He was first and foremost a man of impeccable honor which, despite military adversity and political wrangling, never abandoned him. The Founding Fathers who squabbled and competed amongst themselves did agree on one thing: only Washington could lead the country, first in the country's military fight for freedom and then as the man charged with transforming thirteen individual states into a united country. But in his youth, George Washington did not intend to become the Father of his Country. As a younger son of a middling class Virginian, he intended to earn his living as a surveyor, and in that role, he was introduced to the vast potential of the country that would one day be a nation. But when the death of his older brother made him the heir to Mount Vernon, Washington ascended to leadership in the military, political and social spheres of Virginia and the United States.

Inside you will read about...

? The Washington's of Virginia

? Europe Exports its Wars to the Colonies

? Washington at Mount Vernon

? An Englishman no Longer

? Washington at War

? The Father of His Country

? Return to Mount Vernon

As a member and later officer in the Virginia militia, he fought with the British army against the French as the two European powers struggled for control of the rich Ohio Valley. The British, who would refuse Washington a commission in their army, would later meet him in battle as the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, fighting for independence against the forces of King George III. As a political leader, he would become the architect of the American government. As the master of Mount Vernon, Washington's marriage to the wealthy Martha Dandridge Custis placed him among the elite of the Virginia aristocracy. His integrity established a model for subsequent generations to emulate. That few have managed to match his achievements is an indication of his influence and character. Meet George Washington, the man, and discover the identity of this remarkable leader.

History in 30: The Life of Franklin D. Roosevelt

Franklin Delano Roosevelt may or may not be America's greatest 20th-century president, but there's no question that he was the most unique. A well-connected relative of Theodore Roosevelt, FDR was groomed for greatness until he was struck down by polio. Nevertheless, he persevered, rising through New York politics to reach the White House just as the country faced its greatest challenge since the Civil War, beginning his presidency with one of the most iconic lines ever spoken during an inaugural address. For over a decade, President Roosevelt threw everything he had at the Great Depression, and then threw everything the country had at the Axis powers during World War II. Ultimately, he succumbed to illness in the middle of his fourth term, just before the Allies won the war.

Roosevelt's career is often covered in depth, but his personal life can often be overlooked as a result. History in 30: The Life of Franklin D. Roosevelt provides a quick but comprehensive look at the life of nation's longest serving president, covering Roosevelt's family and famous wife, the philosophical shift Roosevelt led the country through with the New Deal, and the tenacious fighter who battled polio and Hitler.

True Crime: 4 True American Crime Stories: Vol 1 (From police files of the 1920s to the 1950s)

Do you like true crime stories?

You should love these tales then

Originally authentic police files, True American Crime Stories are from the 1920s through to the 1950s - the era of gangster, molls and prohibition. Almost (but not quite), lost in the mists of time, these tales romp along with plenty of action and recreate the atmosphere of this exciting and dangerous era using the vernacular of the times.

You may not have heard much about some of these bad guys, but they were real, ruthless hoodlums and all had their "15 minutes of fame", leaving trails of death and mayhem behind them. Most did not live to an old age, and those that did were probably in jail.

Their escapades were daring and reckless and many paid the ultimate price in the end.

Volume 1 contains

The Jekyll and Hyde Mob

After a rash of robberies, lawmen of the Los Angeles Sheriff's office had killed off or jailed every gang of bank robbers in the county. However, three suave gentlemen continued to loot the banks in daring fashion, leaving the lawmen completely clueless.

The Whispering Bride

Death cast its long, silent shadow over a sleepy New England town as Mrs.Wegner, a widow, waved good-bye to the last of the summer boarders. Little did she realize that she was waving good-bye forever, that death would soon claim her as its victim in the strange case of THE WHISPERING BRIDE.

The Red Bandit

The desperation of a hunted man gave Oklahoma its greatest reign of terror when a youth, vowing never to serve a 75 year rap for robbery, set off a series of events that gave the authorities a veritable nightmare as they pursued their quest down the bloody trail of crime.

The Master Forgers

Counterfeit checks - hundreds of them - were flooding Milwaukee in 1937 and 1938 until science scored a victory for the law!

STORIES FROM THE LIFE OF JESUS, BY HIS MOTHER: Edited by Christopher Antony Meade

When the young Virgin Mary is informed by an angel that she is pregnant with the very special baby Jesus, despite not even being married, she takes the news with great equanimity. Nine months later, when she's struggling through a difficult labour in a stable with cows and donkeys breathing down her neck, the Blessed Virgin feels a lot less pacific. The birth of the baby Jesus changes all that though and Mary knows that she will love Him forever, no matter what the future brings.

And the future does indeed bring a lot of heartache (and annoyance) into the life of the Mother of God. Having to deal with the complications of having a Divine Son is only part of the story for Mary. There are also some very eccentric relatives to be contended with and even miracles can sometimes have unexpected consequences. The roller-coaster life, the young mother is embarking on, swings her from the highs of the Nativity and the visit of the Three Kings, to the devastating heartbreak of the Crucifixion. Never a dull moment for this Blessed Virgin. All of the sadness and a lot of the fun also, that permeates the life story of Jesus and His Blessed Mother, is contained within the pages of this hilarious, but loving, account. You can never look at the Bible stories the same way again, after reading this highly original retelling of "The Greatest Story Ever Told".

By

Cara J Alexander

"When I first saw this book I confess to being somewhat surprise. To take on this subject the writer must either be very brave or completely daft!!!!!! Christopher in my opinion is certainly brave mixed with a very whacky sense of humour."

Robert

"If you enjoy satire that is not caustic, realize nothing in life is as noble as we might wish it to be, and need a few laughs and chuckles, give the story a read."

Kitty Muse Book Reviews

"True or not, these memories are in turn hilarious, tragic, and touching. And never once is there anything disrespectful written in these pages. This is what truly made me love this book.

I suspect that somewhere above, the heavenly hosts are laughing their haloes off from reading Mr Meade's wonderful book."

A Stolen Childhood: Part 1 of 3: A dark past, a terrible secret, a girl without a future

A Stolen Childhood can either be read as a full-length eBook or in 3 serialised eBook-only parts.

This is PART 1 of 3.

You can read Part 1 two weeks ahead of release of the full-length eBook and paperback.

Bestselling author and teacher Casey Watson shares the horrifying true story of Kiera Bentley, a 12-year-old girl with a deeply shocking secret she's too young to even understand.

When Casey first meets Kiera, a small slight girl who's just lashed out at a fellow pupil in assembly, she immediately senses something's wrong. Something in Kiera's eyes alerts Casey that this is an "old head on young shoulders", and with Kiera's constant tiredness and self-soothing habit of pulling her hair out, she follows her instinct and takes Kiera under her wing.

At first the answer seems simple enough; Kiera's parents aren't together and they don't get on, which makes life hard for Kiera as she's so close to her dad. But as the weeks roll on, Casey begins to understand that there's something much darker going on behind closed doors. And when she finally learns the truth, she's terrified she won't be able to save Kiera from it.

Bulger On Trial: Boston's Most Notorious Gangster And The Pursuit Of Justice

The trial of James "Whitey" Bulger this summer was supposed to bring an end to one of the greatest scandals in the history of the FBI, but it dredged up a toxic swamp instead. Horrific crimes, depraved witnesses and sordid accounts of FBI agents who gave their allegiance to the mob boss emerged from the muck as families of 19 murder victims endured the presentation of broken skulls and jaws along with photos from the morgue. At center stage was the defendant, who had been listed and protected by the FBI as a secret informant. He claimed the government had given him a free pass, but prosecutors fought to keep the trial away from questions of who made Bulger what he became and how. In an extraordinary measure of their outrage, the families of the victims cheered Bulger's own attorneys as they savaged the government's "cover-up" and the deals prosecutors had given to Bulger's former associates to win testimony.

In the first book to explore the trial in a larger context, WBUR investigative reporter David Boeri weaves his daily trial dispatches into the complete backstory of Bulger's ruthless ascent to power, the men and the agency who made that possible, and the families of victims who were victimized again and again by the government's protection of the killer. Boeri's storytelling is informed by 26 years of national award-winning reporting on the Bulger case. He aggressively dug into FBI corruption and tracked the Bureau's delayed, often inept search for the 16-year fugitive.

Years before Bulger was arrested in Santa Monica, Bulger travelled to California to follow his own tips in search of Whitey and showed the lack of FBI effort and enterprise. His investigation of crimes aided and abetted by FBI agents took Boeri to old murder scenes of Bulger victims in Oklahoma, Florida and Massachusetts. He followed detectives in the difficult and painful search for the bones of Bulger victims long ago buried. He sought out the families to learn what they had endured and sought out Bulger's criminal associates even tracked some down who were in the Witness Protection Program to chronicle Bulger the boss and Bulger the killer. In "Bulger On Trial," Boeri brings the reader into the same close contact with Bulger's corrupt FBI handler, the younger brother who made a parallel rise to political power, the families, the criminals and the saga that links them all.

Betrayed: Part 1 of 3: The heartbreaking true story of a struggle to escape a cruel life defined by family honour

Betrayed can either be read as a full-length eBook or in 3 serialised eBook-only parts.

This is PART 1 of 3.

You can read Part 1 two weeks ahead of release of the full-length eBook and paperback.

In the much-anticipated follow-up to Sunday Times bestseller Trapped, foster carer Rosie Lewis tells the heartbreaking true story of 13-year-old Zadie.

Taught to believe that Westerners should not be trusted, when Zadie is initially delivered into the experienced hands of foster carer Rosie she is polite and well-behaved, but understandably suspicious of the family around her. Through Rosie's support and understanding, gradually Zadie begins to settle into her new surroundings, but loyalty to her relatives, and fear of bringing shame on those around her, prevents her from confessing the horrifying truth about her troubled past.

When the shocking truth finally emerges, Rosie and her family can hardly believe that Zadie had managed to keep the shocking secrets to herself for so long.

Ghost: Honor Thy Parents: The Rick Watkinson Story

Enjoy a A FREE First Chapter ONLY SNEAK PEEK of the full-length novel - "Ghost - The Rick Watkinson Story"

One is supposed to honor thy parents. At least that's what the Bible says. In the prequel to Ghost - The Rick Watkinson Story, "Honor Thy Parents", tell of the fateful night that 16 year old Rick Watkinson picked up a semi-automatic rifle and fatally shot his father and his step-mother. Why did he do it? What was his state of mind that led to his actions? This prequel sets the stage for answers to those questions and more. Find all of these answers and more in the full novel - Ghost: The Rick Watkinson Story.

Rick Watkinson was a typical American kid growing up with his mother, father, and brother in California. Idolizing his father Robert, a pilot, the young boy reveled in their shared passion for flying and fostering their adventurous spirit sailboat racing and travelling. But the strength of that father-son bond was crushed when his father filed for divorce soon after moving the family to Oregon. Ten-year-old Rick was devastated - unable to comprehend his father's wicked betrayal of the family. With his bitter and vengeful mother's help, the love for his father quickly turned to hate. The center of his universe became the center of his scorn. Consumed by her own hatred and personal issues, his mother was unable to offer him the support and security his confused psyche needed and craved. God would save them she said. God would look after them. They just had to believe and pray - don the armour in the fight against Satan and his army of demons. Ricky would lead the way, with his 'special gift' he was 'Christ's Little Warrior'.

Darkness, light, light, darkness. With his emotions slammed tight behind an iron wall of resolve, Rick and his lost soul took to the streets, finding comfort and his voice, among the criminals and socially angry young adults. They became his strength. They became his guide. If fences needed to be jumped, things stolen or sabotaged, it was often 'crazy little Ricky' who was asked to do the deed. This built confidence, and finally made him feel like he was a part of something again. Unable to control him, his mother kicks him out of the house. Trapped into coming home, Rick is confronted by his father and given a choice - either come live in Alaska with him and his wife or be dropped off at the police station. Rick chose door number one, the apparent lessor of two evils. With that choice his fate was sealed, and for the next thirteen months, his life in Alaska was a cage match with each party throwing punches; the violence and tension escalating with each round.

"Ghost" is the true story of Rick Watkinson, his journey from a tumultuous childhood, to his current stay and personal growth behind the thick steel bars in an Alaskan State Penitentiary. Who is this man and what causes a person to cross the boundaries of humanity? Can these events be strictly traced to upbringing and environment, or do some people have an inherent propensity for evil? Is redemption or rehabilitation even possible?

Stripped down to its core, this is a story of a boy who just wanted to be loved. A boy who just wanted to belong, and be a part of a family, whatever that incarnation of a family might have been. He is not asking for forgiveness nor is he expecting us to give it. His life is his life, and his mistakes are his mistakes. He cannot change the past or give life to his father and step-mother. He can only move forward, continuing to find the light in a life of darkness.

Incest & Its Effects on Families

Incest hurts children and confuses them. This general statement fits most if not all incest cases, but from there each family situation is different. This 8-page article shows that professionals and family members who want to understand particular families where incest has occurred must be open to a multitude of possibilities and only come to conclusions when they can document them. It does no one any good for professionals and family members to believe and act as if all families where incest has occurred are the same.

The more that individuals know about the variations within families where incest has happened, the more prepared we are to turn beliefs that incest is wrong into actions that foster children's recovery and their chances for fulfilling lives. This article is from her book Child Sexual Abuse: From Harsh Realities to Hope.

The Story of Prophet Adam In Islam

Prophet Adam is believed to have been the first human being and (Prophet) on Earth, in Islam. Adam's role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence. Muslims also refer to his wife, Hawa (Eve), as the "mother of mankind". Muslims see Prophet Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur'an states that all the Prophets preached the same faith of Islam (Submission to One God).

The Qur'an and hadith give the same account of the creation of Adam and Eve. Synthesizing the Qur'an with Sunni hadith can produce the following account. According to the Qur'an, when Allah (God) informed the angels that he was going to put a successor on Earth, they questioned whether the human would cause blood shed and damage, but he told them that he knew what they did not. He created Adam from clay and breathed life into him. Hadith add that he was named Adam after the clay he was made out of, or the skin (adim) of the earth. Returning to the Qur'an, when God asked all the angels to prostrate before Adam, they all obeyed, except Iblis (Lucifer). He said, "I am made from fire, when Adam is from clay. I am better than him. I am not going to prostrate before him."

Sunni hadith say that while Adam was sleeping, God took a rib from him and from it he created Eve (Hawa); however, while the creation of Adam and Eve is referred to in the Qur'an, the exact method of creation is not specified. The Qur'an then says that God commanded that Adam and Eve not eat from one tree in the garden of Eden, but Iblis (Lucifer) was able to convince them to taste it. They then began to cover themselves because they now knew that they were naked. For this, God banished Adam and Eve to earth; non-canonical Sunni hadith say that fruits were turned to thorns and pregnancy became dangerous. Non-canonical Sunni hadith also say that Adam and Eve were cast down far apart, so that they had to search for each other and eventually met each other at Mount Arafat.

In Islamic theology, it is not believed that Adam's sin is carried by all of his children. Hadith say that once Prophet Adam was on earth, God taught him how to plant seeds and bake bread. This was to become the way of all of Adam's children, Prophet Adam proceeded to live for about 1000 years.

Tales of a Tiller Girl Part 1 of 3

A heart-warming nostalgia memoir from a member of the world famous dance troupe, The Tiller Girls. Based in London in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, Irene's story will transport readers back to a more innocent, simple way of life.

This is the story of a little girl who loved to dance. Growing up in London in the 1930s, dancing was so much more to Irene than just a hobby. It was her escape and it took her off into another world away from the harsh realities of life. A fairytale world away from the horrors of WW2, from the grief of losing her father and missing her mother who she didn't see for three years while she was drafted to help with the war effort. And far away from her cold-hearted grandparents who treated her like an inconvenience.

Finally it led to her winning a place as a Tiller Girl; the world's most famous dance troupe known for their 32-and-a-half high kicks a minute and precise, symmetrical routines. For four years she opened and closed the show at the prestigious London Palladium and performed on stage alongside huge stars such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Judy Garland.

It was a strange mixture of glamour and bloody hard work but it was certainly never dull. And being a Tiller Girl also gave Irene the opportunity to see firsthand the devastating effects of WW2, both here and abroad.

Heart-warming, enlightening and wonderfully uplifting, Irene's evocative story will transport readers back to a time when every town and holiday resort had several theatres and when dance troupes like The Tiller Girls were the epitome of glitz and glamour.

But don't take my word for it - read the books and work of Dr Peter Dale Scott, Aaron Russo, Attorney Michael Springmann, Dr Steven Greer, Dr Judy Wood, Dr Morgan Reynolds, Dr David Griffin, Dr Barrie Trower, Dr John Hall, Dr Katherine Horton, Dr Ewen Cameron, Paul Hellyer, Ted Gunderson, and many others. This author has been investigating satellite weapons and the global microwave torture of thousands of people, since January 2016. This ebook contains some of my latest research into Targeted Individuals. I have referenced a number of credible sources that have videos on youtube including, Dr Barrie Trower, a retired British intelligence agent and microwave expert; Dr John Hall, M.D. In San Antonio; and Dr Katherine Horton, an Oxford scientist. Based on this research, I can state with complete confidence that Ed Snowden and Julian Assange are microwave targets of this illegal program. I urge them to come forward in support of Targeted Individuals, just like William Binney and Kirk Weibe have done. This is happening to thousands of people all over the world. Their family members are targets of the subliminal messaging program, which is intended to isolate them emotionally and psychologically. These microwave beams are painful and cause permanent damage. It is nothing less than torture, and it is banned under international treaties. It is a serious violation of Constitutional rights, it is defined as a war crime by international treaties, and when conducted against White House cabinets members and top government officials, it is nothing less than TREASON. See my related ebook, "34 Patents on Subliminal Mind Control."

I strongly encourage Ed Snowden and Julian Assange to come forward with their experience as Targeted Individuals and microwave torture. These criminal acts by the CIA will not stop until the public is made aware of it.

These satellite frequencies are also being used in a subliminal messaging program against Targeted Individuals and their family members, in an attempt to control their behavior. The CIA is using these same frequencies and subliminal messaging to alter the behavior of top government officials, such as Senators, Congressmen, and even the President and his cabinet. This is TREASON. The microwave and RF technology to alter behavior has been well-documented. I have previously documented the frequencies as follows: Tracking and geolocation: approx. 3600 MHz to 3750 Mhz, and the carrier frequency for the subliminal messaging and harm signals has been measured at 3921 MHz - 3934 MHz. The subliminal messaging is repeated thousands of times each night on the target, until the negative messages "stick." These messages can be simple - "Your husband is crazy," or "You hate him. Avoid him." Recall that CIA Doctor Ewen Cameron bragged about using these subliminal techniques to turn an ordinary person into a vicious serial killer - the real Manchurian Candidate, as part of the CIA's MK-Ultra program. Mike Pompeo, current CIA Director is fully aware of these programs. This is obvious from the reorganization of the CIA's field agents, into remote monitoring of targets, which were exposed with the Vault 7 wikileaks files.

The recent Vault 7 files also include emails from the Stratfor Corporation, with employees joking about Microwave Torture - clearly they know what is going on.

The CIA and FBI are "behind most, if not all terrorism." - Ted Gunderson, former FBI Chief

Harry's Games, Wit and Wisdom

A FREE extended extract from the forthcoming biography of Harry Redknapp, including the Wit & Wisdom of the greatest football manager England never had (with apologies to Brian Clough).

Who is Harry Redknapp? Football genius or football chancer? Master tactician or practical joker? How is it that even when he was facing court proceedings for tax evasion so many people were still seriously tipping him to be the next England manager? How can one man have two such diametrically opposed and incompatible career trajectories? Does the longing to have an English manager in charge of the national side warp people's thinking?'

To Portsmouth fans, Redknapp was the man who walked on water and won them an FA Cup. To Southampton fans, he is still the devil incarnate who had them relegated before jumping ship to their arch rivals. Spurs fans weren't sure what he was, bit didn't care as long as he kept the team together and winning. Sometimes he's the Messiah, at others the clown. Whoever he is, Crace is determined to find out.

At the Coalface: Part 1 of 3: The memoir of a pit nurse

A heart-warming story of a woman who devoted her life to helping others. This is the memoir of Joan, who started nursing in the 1940s and whose experiences took her into the Yorkshire mining pits and through the tumult of the 1984-85 miners' strike.

Joan Hart always knew what she wanted to do with her life. Born in South Yorkshire in 1932, she started her nursing training when she was 16, the youngest age girls could do so at the time. She continued working after she married and her work took her to London and Doncaster, caring for children and miners.

When she took a job as a pit nurse in Doncaster in 1974, she found that in order to be accepted by the men under her care, she would have to become one of them. Most of the time rejecting a traditional nurse's uniform and donning a baggy miner's suit, pit boots, a hardhat and a headlamp, Joan resolved always to go down to injured miners and bring them out of the pit herself.

Over 15 years Joan grew to know the miners not only as a nurse, but as a confidante and friend. She tended to injured miners underground, rescued men trapped in the pits, and provided support for them and their families during the bitter miners' strike which stretched from March 1984 to 1985.

Moving and uplifting, this is a story of one woman's life, marriage and work; it is guaranteed to make readers laugh, cry, and smile.

Every day he gives more detail, telling her how he drives a jeep filled with guns and bottles of the chocolate milk he loves for hundreds of miles on murderous missions of execution. Every night he lures, seduces and manipulates this vulnerable young woman.

A riveting page-turner In the Skin of a Jihadist is a shocking inquiry into how technology is spreading radicalism, the lure of ISIS propaganda, and the factors that motivate young people - including many British teenagers - to join extremist wars in Syria and elsewhere.

17-year-old Sarah Hill leaves behind her home in Wales and enrols at Hackney General Hospital, where she is due to start her training.

Looking up at the rows and rows of little windows, there was no way Sarah could have guessed just what she was getting herself into...

More than just a hospital, Hackney General was part of the community, just as much as the Adam & Eve pub the staff frequent. A place where the poorly children of Hackney were nursed to health, a place where young nurses would discover just want they wanted from life, fall in love with shy photographers and grow into women. But it's not all smooth sailing in Hackney: for every baby that goes home to its loving family another is abandoned, unloved, or never gets to go home at all.

Funny, warm and deeply moving, Sarah Beeson's poignant memoir captures both the heartache and happiness of hospital life and 1970s London through the eyes of a gentle but determined young nurse.

Damaged: Free Sampler

Discover the incredible memoirs of internationally bestselling author Cathy Glass with this free extended eBook sampler of Cathy's first book, and No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller, Damaged.

Jodie is a violent and aggressive 8 year old who has already been through numerous foster families. Cathy Glass is her last hope ...

At the Social Services office, Cathy (an experienced foster carer) is pressured into taking Jodie as a new placement. Jodie's challenging behaviour has seen off five carers in four months. Despite her reservations, Cathy decides to take on Jodie to protect her from being placed in an institution.

Jodie arrives, and her first act is to soil herself, and then wipe it on her face, grinning wickedly. Jodie meets Cathy's teenage children, and greets them with a sharp kick to the shins. That night, Cathy finds Jodie covered in blood, having cut her own wrist, and smeared the blood over her face.

As Jodie begins to trust Cathy her behaviour improves. Over time, with childish honesty, she reveals details of her abuse at the hands of her parents and others. It becomes clear that Jodie's parents were involved in a sickening paedophile ring, with neighbours and Social Services not seeing what should have been obvious signs.

Unfortunately Jodie becomes increasingly withdrawn, and it's clear she needs psychiatric therapy. Cathy urges the Social Services to provide funding, but instead they decide to take Jodie away from her, and place her in a residential unit.

Although the paedophile ring is investigated and brought to justice, Jodie's future is still up in the air. Cathy promises that she will stand by her no matter what - her love for the abandoned Jodie is unbreakable.

Still Turning Left

When 35 of the best stock car racing drivers came together to contest the World Championship in September 2013, few people predicted that James Rygor would come from the back of the grid in his debut World Final to claim the greatest prize in the sport.

In this short sequel to KEEP TURNING LEFT, Scott Reeves recounts the spectacular World Final and meets the new World Champion. Featuring colour photographs and based on interviews with James Rygor, this is the story of one racing driver's journey to shock success.

The Mighty Pies and My Mighty Dad: A Collingwood Love Story 1953

Peter loved the Magpies--so named because of their black and white jumpers. Every Saturday afternoon during the footy season, he was glued to the radio, hanging on every word of the commentators. If Collingwood lost, he was in tears.

On the day of this story, when the Pies were in front approaching three-quarter time, and his Dad spontaneously called him to jump in the car--so that he could catch the last quarter at the ground--he was in the car faster than a Thorald Merrett stab-pass.

But this story is less about Collingwood and footy, than it is about the author's relationship with his Dad, and the inspiration he gained as a boy from his sporting heroes.

Peter learned anything is possible with enough preparation, will and grit. Or at least much more is possible than we believe, for we simply don't know our limits--as individuals or, in this case, as a team.

This is a yarn about a 9-year-old lad, his Dad, and Collingwood--the football team they adored. Peter le Breton shares his memories of life in Melbourne in the 1950s, when his Dad was a chiropractor with patients who played for the Collingwood Football Club.

Although Collingwood lost this match, they went on, against the odds, to beat Geelong in the 1953 Grand Final.

Saint Padre Pio: In the Footsteps of Saint Francis

In an age that smirks at the mention of miracles, sin, angels, and demons, St. Pio of Pietrelchina has emerged as a figure of immense popularity, attracting fascination, veneration, and also emulation. Padre Pio, who once wrote in a letter, "I am a mystery to myself," is certainly a mystery to all who know of him. To those who moved beyond mere credulity, he became an inspiration to embrace the fullness of faith. Perhaps that is why his shrine in outlying San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy, is second only to the Vatican itself in annual number of pilgrims and why Italian Catholics now report to praying more for St. Pio's intercession than for that of any other saint. This book is a concise introduction to Padre Pio's life, especially as compared to the example and journey of his spiritual father, St. Francis of Assisi. If St. Francis is said to be the most popular saint of all time, Franciscan Capuchin Padre Pio is perhaps the most popular saint of our times. Given that he passed only in 1968, it is remarkable to think that such a spiritual "superhero" could exist in our modern age. Through not spared from misfortune, he was spared those things that cloud us from perceiving the world in a truly spiritual way. Perhaps that is why Padre Pio offers us just the message we need to hear.

So Lonesome: Hank Williams and the Creation of Country Music (Chicago Shorts)



Hank Williams (1923-53) was an American singer-songwriter and musician regarded as the most important country music artist of all time, creator of an unforgettable sound and persona that helped to define the genre from its infancy and beyond. Though unable to read or notate music to any substantive degree, Williams recorded 11 number one hits between 1948 and 1953, which carried him to music's mainstream and left an enduring legacy. In So Lonesome, Richard A. Peterson captures the free-wheeling entrepreneurial spirit of an era gone by, when the Grand Ole Opry put Nashville's star on the map, while detailing how Williams came to fame and helped launch country music both during his life and after his death. More than just a history of the music and one of its most celebrated performers, So Lonesome explores what it means to live an authentic life within the confines of marketing popular culture.

Friedrich Nietzsche: A Brief Introduction to His Life and Work

Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher who, in a relatively brief career, challenged the foundations of Christianity, morality and the meaning of existence.

His writings have influenced many of the major thinkers and writers since his death at the beginning of the 20th century, from philosophers Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung to writers Hermann Hesse and George Bernard Shaw.

This book presents a brief biography of the philosopher, his remarkable life and an introduction to his major writings.

Works introduced:

The Birth of Tragedy

Human, All Too Human

The Gay Science

Thus Spoke Zarathustra

World War II in Antwerp, Belgium: Experiences of a Young Boy

War is, of course, terrible. Any war. All the suffering, all the death, all the wounded, the destruction, homelessness, cruelty, hunger, fear, and panic. It may also bring out the best in some people: heroism, patriotism, compassion, and altruism. But one would never think that war might be seen as an adventure; in some ways for me it was.

In this short book I write about my memories of this period of time from the invasion of Belgium, through the German occupation, and to the immediate post war era. For most Belgians this was a hard and sad time full of suffering. While I experienced some of that suffering and the fear as well, many of my memories are about exciting events and experiences (to a young boy), to the point that I remember this time as an "adventure."

I will justifiably be faulted for talking so lightly about this dark period in Belgium's and the world's history and for seemingly having somewhat enjoyed it all , while people were indiscriminately killed, tortured, and exterminated by the Nazis and while there was much suffering, destruction, maiming, and death. Remember though that I was a little boy growing up and mostly unaware of the atrocities occurring away from my immediate environment. Also, my parents did their best to shelter me from the many horrors.

If a reader is offended by this, I do apologize and want to reassure the reader that now at age 83, I am of course fully aware of the darkness of the years between 1940 and 1945. Seen in this light I do hope that this will be an interesting and enjoyable read for contemporaries and others.

The People's Champ: 50 Muhammad Ali Quotes

Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) was an American former heavyweight champion boxer and one of the greatest sporting figures of the 20th century. An Olympic gold medalist and the first fighter to capture the heavyweight title three times, Ali won 56 times in his 21-year professional career. Ali's outspokenness on issues of race, religion and politics made him a controversial figure during his career, and the heavyweight's quips and taunts were as quick as his fists. Born Cassius Clay Jr., Ali changed his name in 1964 after joining the Nation of Islam. Citing his religious beliefs, he refused military induction and was stripped of his heavyweight championship and banned from boxing for three years during the prime of his career. Parkinson's syndrome severely impaired Ali's motor skills and speech, but he remained active as a humanitarian and goodwill ambassador.

The Autobiography of Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh

BHAI SAHIB RANDHIR SINGH (1878-1961) was an outstanding freedom-fighter and a great saint and theologian who has made a lasting contribution to the religious and cultural revival in Punjab, and was one of the first few Punjabi revolutionaries who staked their life and career to bring about political awakening and win freedom for their country. Son of a High Court Judge and educated in Govt. College and Mission College, Lahore, Bhai Randhir Singh ushered a moral and spiritual revival which set into motion what later on came to be known as Gurdwara Reform Movement. In the Rakabganj Affair (1913) it was his stern challenge to the British Government and stirring call to the people to organize resistance, which prevented the further desecration of the historic shrine.

In 1914, he was the only non-emigrant Sikh leader who completely identified himself with the cause of the Ghadar Party and suffered imprisonment for seventeen long years. He is known to historians of this period as "Hero of the First supplementary Lahore Conspiracy Case''. He is the only Sikh Leader who, in the last hundred years or more, has been given 'Hukamnamas' and Robes of Honour by the (then) four Takhats of the Panth, in solemn recognition of his sacrifices and impact on his times. His deep and original expositions of various aspects of Sikhism (more than 30 books) are a lasting contribution to Sikh theology, philosophy and mysticism. He distinguished himself in Punjabi prose and poetry by an erudite and powerful grand style of his own.

This autobiography, originally compiled from his letters from the various prisons and published in Punjabi, has been translated by Dr. Trilochan Singh, who was associated with Bhai Sahib during last 20 years of his life. To the translation Dr. Trilochan Singh has added a lengthy introductory thesis, based on through research work, throwing light on Bhai Sahib's early life and giving fairly detailed account of Bhai Randhir Singh's role in Rakabganj Affair and the Ghadar Party Revolution. Some of the facts revealed by him are a significant contribution to the history of this period. They bring to light the achievement and results of the Ghadar Revolution, and its impact on subsequent phases of Freedom Movement.

This is the first electronic publication of this nature by Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh Trust UK (Registered Charity No: 1144954). With the blessings of the Almighty and support of the Sangat, we can hopefully publish more of Bhai Sahib's work in this way. Any proceeds and donations will go towards making more work of this nature available and for other charitable causes.

The Forgotten Soldier (Part 1 of 3): He wasn’t a soldier, he was just a boy

Bestselling author Charlie Connelly returns with a First World War memoir of his great uncle, Edward Connelly, who was an ordinary boy sent to fight in a war the likes of which the world had never seen.

But this is not just his story; it is the story of all the young forgotten soldiers who fought and bravely died for their country

The Forgotten Soldier tells the story of Private Edward Connelly, aged 19, killed in the First World War a week before the Armistice and immediately forgotten, even, it seems, by his own family.

Edward died on exactly the same day, and as part of the same military offensive, as Wilfred Owen. They died only a few miles apart and yet there cannot be a bigger contrast between their legacies. Edward had been born into poverty in west London on the eve of the twentieth century, had a job washing railway carriages, was conscripted into the army at the age of eighteen and sent to the Western Front from where he would never return.

He lies buried miles from home in a small military cemetery on the outskirts of an obscure town close to the French border in western Belgium. No-one has ever visited him.

Excellent Things in Women: A Memoir of Postcolonial Pakistan (Chicago Shorts)





Sometimes, only the most heartbreaking memories possess the capacity--in their elegiac immediacy--to take our breath away. With Excellent Things in Women, Sara Suleri offers the reader a delicately wrought memoir of life in postcolonial Pakistan. Suleri intertwines the violent history of Pakistan's independence with her own intimate experiences--relating the tumult of growing up female during a time of fierce change in the Middle East in the 1960s and '70s. In the two selections presented here, "Excellent Things in Women" and "Meatless Days," we watch as Suleri re-encounters the relationships that inform her voyage from adolescence to womanhood--with her Welsh mother; her Pakistani father, prominent political journalist Z. A. Suleri; and her tenacious grandmother, Dadi, along with her five siblings--as she comes to terms with the difficulties of growing up and her own complicated passage to the West.

The Story of Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) In Islam

Prophet Ibrahim known as Prophet Abraham in the Hebrew Bible, is recognized as a prophet and messenger in Islam of Allah (God). Abraham plays a prominent role as an example of faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In Muslim belief, Abraham fulfilled all the commandments and trials wherein God nurtured him throughout his lifetime. As a result of his unwavering faith in God, Abraham was promised by God to be a leader to all the nations of the world.

The Quran extols Abraham as a model, an exemplar, obedient and not an idolator. In this sense, Abraham has been described as representing "primordial man in universal surrender to the Divine Reality before its fragmentation into religions separated from each other by differences in form". The Islamic holy day Eid al-Adha is celebrated in memory of the bravery of Abraham, and Muslims perform the pilgrimage to pay homage at the Ka'bah in the Hijazi city of Mecca, which they believe Abraham had set up and reformed.

Muslims believe that the prophet Abraham became the leader of the righteous in his time, and that it was through him that people of both the Arabian Peninsula (Adnanites in particular) and Israel came. Abraham, in the belief of Islam, was instrumental in cleansing the world of idolatry at the time.

Paganism was cleared out by Abraham in both Arabia and Canaan. He spiritually purified both places as well as physically sanctifying the houses of worship. Abraham and Ismail (Ishmael) further established the rites of pilgrimage, or Hajj, which are still followed by Muslims today. Muslims maintain that Abraham further asked God to bless both the lines of his progeny, of Ismail and Ishaq (Isaac), and to keep all of his descendants in the protection of God.

What Is Islam Faith?

Among the blessings and favors that God has bestowed upon humanity is that He endowed them with an innate ability to recognize and acknowledge His existence. He placed this awareness deep in their hearts as a natural disposition that has not changed since human beings were first created. Furthermore, He reinforced this natural disposition with the signs that he placed in creation that testify to His existence. However, since it is not possible for human beings to have a detailed knowledge of God except through revelation from Himself, God sent His Messengers to teach the people about their Creator Who they must worship. These Messengers also brought with them the details of how to worship God, because such details cannot be known except by way of revelation. These two fundamentals were the most important things that the Messengers of all the divine revelations brought with them from God.

The ultimate goal of every Divine Message has always been the same: to guide the people to God, to make them aware of Him, and to have them worship Him alone. Each Divine Message came to strengthen this meaning, and the following words were repeated on the tongues of all the Messengers: "Worship God, you have no god other than Him." This message was conveyed to humanity by prophets and messengers which God sent to every nation. All of these messengers came with this same message, the message of Islam.

Praise for The Sugarspear Chronicles:"This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mikemovies. It will challenge you...But if you open your mind and stretch back to the bygone era of literary symbolism that was Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, you will appreciate the shining jewel that is this book." --A.D. Marrow, author of Chaos and Moonlight, Book One of the Order of the Nines series

A Man of Constant Sorrow, but A Man of Destiny: A Trump of the Past

Some Commentary on this Book:

"This is one of the best articles I have ever read anywhere on the Internet. It must go viral and should become a classic. Highest commendations for this fine work...This is truly inspiring great work." - Dr. PJ

"Thank you Mr. Jack Speer-Williams for a refreshing reminder of the sovereignty of men that made "America" great. Alluding to foreign intelligence, that has catered to and skewed the wealth-stupified among leadership of the US and the world, suggests insider information that has cost the lives of many since 1947. The call to resurrection of American sovereignty, breaking the bonds of the wealth-stupified, puppetry of "foreign intelligence" hits the bulls-eye, applauded by many patriotic commenters. Your treatise has a strong awakening quality, and I will spread it. With sincere appreciation", DR. B

"I second that thought..." DM

"I third that. Inspired writing, Jack." - JS

Discover what made this individual one of America's greatest leaders and what made him so controversial for his time! With parallels to our nation's current President. An intriguing and thought provoking work.

During the changing economic and social conditions of the 1820's and 1830's there was much hostility between the Bank on the one hand, and rising capitalists, urban workers, and farmers on the other. In this context, Jackson aimed to do away with the Bank. The Bank's supporters, however, struck back. In a move intended to wrench political support from Jackson, Henry Clay forced a bill through the Senate to re-charter the Bank. Jackson vetoed the bill, beginning the long struggle which has become known as "The Bank War." Jackson defeated Clay in the presidential election of 1832 despite Clay's efforts. Taking his political victory as a mandate from the people to destroy the Bank, he withdrew federal deposits, thereby setting the stage for the Bank's eventual death in 1836.

The book is filled with entertaining (sometimes candid) and informative graphics and pictures. A worthy examination of certain topics of society not often dealt with in most media.

Nixon and the Silver Screen (Chicago Shorts)

Richard Nixon and the film industry arrived in Southern California in the same year, 1913. In Nixon and the Silver Screen, Mark Feeney offers a new and often revelatory way of thinking about one of our most controversial presidents: by looking not just at Nixon's career--but Hollywood's. Nixon viewed more movies while in office than any other president, and Feeney argues that Nixon's story, both in politics and in his personal life, is nothing if not quintessentially American.Bearing in mind the events that shaped his presidency from 1969 to 1974, Feeney sees aspects of Nixon's character--and the nation's--refracted and reimagined in the more than 500 films Nixon watched during his tenure in the White House. The verdict? Nixon's legacy, for better or worse, is forever representative of the "Silver Age" in Hollywood, shaping and being shaped by that flickering silver screen.

Erika and Klaus Mann in New York: Escape from the Magic Mountain (Chicago Shorts)

This is the riveting tale of two brave nonconformists whose dramatic lives open up new perspectives on the history of the twentieth century. Thomas Mann's two eldest children, Erika and Klaus, were unconventional, rebellious, and fiercely devoted to each other. Empowered by their close bond, they espoused vehemently anti-Nazi views in a Europe swept up in fascism and were openly, even defiantly, gay in an age of secrecy and repression. In 1936, they fled to the United States and chose New York as their new adopted home. From the start, the two were embroiled by the literary and intellectual life, political turmoil, and shifting sexual mores of their times. Andrea Weiss engages their struggles, their friendships (Maurice Wertheim and Annemarie Schwarzenbach, among them), and their liaisons, as the siblings try to adapt to their new lives, all while introducing their work to an American audience for the first time.

Song To Kill A Giant (Latvian contemporary)

25 years ago, the people of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania united under broad democratic movements to demand from the Soviet Union the freedom which was taken from them in 1940. One can only admire the courage of these people who, armed only with songs and an urge for justice, challenged the Soviet giant. The world was shaken by this peaceful singing revolution, because it threatened the finely-adjusted bipolar balance of world order. Back then, hardly anyone believed that the Baltic States would even have a chance for greater autonomy in the Soviet Union, let alone their regaining independence.

The success of the Baltic nation's independence movements shook the Soviet Union at its foundation, and in 1991 lead to its collapse. The world as we had known it since the end of the Second World War had irreversibly changed forever. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, for those nations of Eastern Europe and the Baltics, who had been held captive behind the Iron Curtain, World War Two had finally come to an end.

To understand why, it is important to read Sandra Kalniete's book; it tells the story of strategy and tactics, of the difficult choices and compromises which at every step of the way can threatened the ultimate goal in such mass movements. The success story of the people's movements of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia can be used as an example for the many millions of people around the world who still yearn for freedom.

Since writing the book in 2000, Kalniete has gone on to become Latvia's ambassador to the United Nations, France and UNESCO, her country's foreign minister, Latvia's first representative to the European Commission, and, in 2009, a member of the European Parliament. She is the author of several other books.

My name is Bino Byansi Byakuleka: Double essay

,,We must learn to see the stereotypes behind the term asylum seekers. The book is a good start for that." (Susanne Memarnia, taz)

Could you imagine to be a refugee and be treated like a criminal? Not like a human being? How would you like to be welcomed? With Patras Bwansi you can relive this experience.

Bill Veeck's Crosstown Classic (Chicago Shorts)

Baseball Hall of Famer Bill Veeck (1914-86) was an inspired team builder, a consummate showman, and one of the greatest baseball men ever involved in the game. Bill Veeck's Crosstown Classic, drawn from his uproarious autobiography (cowritten with the talented sportswriter Ed Linn), is an unforgettable trip packed with anecdotes and insight about the history of baseball and tales of players and owners--some of the most entertaining stories in all of sports literature. Veeck's own love for the game began when his father was manager and then President of the Chicago Cubs; upon his father's death in 1930, Veeck was hired as an office boy for eighteen dollars a week. Here, Veeck recollects those halcyon days and how they underscored his development as a wily franchise owner, leading up to quite a rumpus, many years later, during his purchase of the White Sox from the "Battling Comiskeys."

The Art of Backscratching in Chicago: Driving with Ed McElroy (Chicago Shorts)

"Ed McElroy, clear of eye, sound of mind, and eighty-three years of age . . . guides his black Cadillac down Halsted Street." So begins longtime Chicago journalist Neil Steinberg's nuanced homage to Ed McElroy: an old-school, behind-the-scenes backscratcher who has driven the rich, powerful, and well-connected around the city, doing favors and calling them in, for decades. Helping a young Steinberg understand the city, McElroy and his take on how a Mayor's son gets to be Mayor and how a wily up-and-comer marries the daughter of a powerful alderman and later becomes governor would enthrall even the most seasoned Chicagoan. In this drive around town and through time, Steinberg ultimately serves up audacious and funny anecdotes about how it helps to stay connected, to know a guy, and to help people out when you can.

Survival

There are times when an idyllic childhood in Ireland, even for just a few years, can sustain that child as he grows older, encountering physical abuse and terror. That was so for me between 1949 and 1953. Ireland has been in my heart ever since. My memoir is about a battering alcoholic father who would not accept me as his son. It is about my love of Ireland sustaining me, giving me the courage to fight back against despair, to survive a road accident, to seek a better life through reading and hope and education. It is about a growing awareness of being gay under legal intolerance. It is about never giving up. It is about surviving against the odds.
