Europa am Abgrund Das europäische zwanzigste Jahrhundert war geprägt von kriegerischen Auseinandersetzungen. Europa erlebte gewaltige Turbulenzen, die Hölle zweier Weltkriege in der ersten Jahrhunderthälfte und tiefgreifende Veränderungen. Der britische Historiker Ian Kershaw erzählt in einem meisterhaften Panorama die Geschichte dieses Kontinents vom Vorabend des Ersten Weltkriegs bis in die Zeit des beginnenden Kalten Kriegs Ende der vierziger Jahre, nachdem die europäische Zivilisation an den Rand der Selbstzerstörung gelangt war. Ethnische Auseinandersetzungen, aggressiver Nationalismus und Gebietsstreitigkeiten, Klassenkonflikte und die tiefe Krise des Kapitalismus waren die treibenden Kräfte, die Kershaw dabei besonders in den Blick nimmt. Neben den großen Entwicklungslinien in Politik, Wirtschaft, Kultur und Gesellschaft schildert er auch immer wieder Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen einzelner, die einen Eindruck geben vom Leben im Europa der ersten Jahrhunderthälfte.

This is my Hell and Back story. I was in two wars; one with Korea and one with my wife. My story starts during the Great Depression of the Twentieth Century; on my fathers self-sustaining farm. Before the age of five, my familys pet sheep, rammed my forehead into the tractors steel wheel; leaving a visible V scar, on my head for the rest of my life. This V was proof; that God would give me victory, over hell throughout my life. Be it near death experiences; on the farm, in war, driving vehicles, building homes, marriage, heart attack, multiple bypasses and the lost of my free movie sweet heart. I learned how to be at peace with myself and God. This peace allowed me to face my hells head on; witness God walking me through them, establish me again and take me through the next season of my life. My Story finishes, with it being a navigational inspiration tool; that guides us and the generations to come, through our hell and backs. Included are my Hell and Back Survival TipsTM that guided me through my two wars. Plus the Law of Unconditional Love, I discovered while in my two wars.

A Journey To Hell and Back is a gripping saga of a young woman's journey from adolescence to adulthood at an accelerated pace. This book is an exploration of a troubled teen's journey into the underworld to emerge as an independent, confident, and self-assured woman. Pitfalls, tragedy, and trials that lure a young honor student into the mean streets of Atlanta and finally, New York mark the story. Her journey to hell led her through a fiery furnace that burned 70 % of her body with 2nd and 3rd degree burns, and an over three months hospital stay where God provided personal consolation and healing. After God miraculously saved her from a life in the streets heaped with sin, her zeal for God resulted in her making additional mistakes, including renewing the abusive relationship that had almost cost her life. The story is a modern day version of Dante's Inferno. Each layer of Hell corresponds with a new low in the protagonist's life. Finally, from within the very bowels of Hell, she cries out to the Lord for salvation. This spiritual epiphany becomes a turning point in her life, thrusting her forward from Hell. The tremendous suffering and miraculous ending of this book will offer hope and comfort for anyone suffering from loneliness, heartache, or disappointment. It provides a realistic and human perspective on many social topics such as teenage rebellion and pregnancy, domestic violence, divorce, AIDS, substance abuse, prostitution, and the legal system. It is a necessity for anyone who has been a part or will work with any of these populations.

Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) maintained that translation destroys the harmony of poetry. Yet his Commedia has been translated into English time and again over the last two-and-a-bit centuries. At last count, one-hundred and twenty-nine different translators have published at least one canticle of the Italian masterwork since the first in 1782, and countless more have translated individual cantos. Among them there are some of the finest poets in the English language, including Robert Lowell and the Irish Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney. Smith and Sonzogni have assembled and annotated two complete translations of Dante’s most popular canticle, Inferno, each canto translated by a different translator. To Hell and Back is a celebration of the art and craft of poetry translation; of the lexical palettes and syntactical tempos of the English language; and, of course, of the genius of one of the greatest poets of all times.

Drawing on the voices of atomic bomb survivors and the new science of forensic archaeology, Charles Pellegrino describes the events and the aftermath of two days in August when nuclear devices, detonated over Japan, changed life on Earth forever. To Hell and Back offers readers a stunning, “you are there” time capsule, wrapped in elegant prose. Charles Pellegrino’s scientific authority and close relationship with the A-bomb survivors make his account the most gripping and authoritative ever written. At the narrative’s core are eyewitness accounts of those who experienced the atomic explosions firsthand—the Japanese civilians on the ground. As the first city targeted, Hiroshima is the focus of most histories. Pellegrino gives equal weight to the bombing of Nagasaki, symbolized by the thirty people who are known to have fled Hiroshima for Nagasaki—where they arrived just in time to survive the second bomb. One of them, Tsutomu Yamaguchi, is the only person who experienced the full effects of both cataclysms within Ground Zero. The second time, the blast effects were diverted around the stairwell behind which Yamaguchi’s office conference was convened—placing him and few others in a shock cocoon that offered protection while the entire building disappeared around them. Pellegrino weaves spellbinding stories together within an illustrated narrative that challenges the “official report,” showing exactly what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki—and why. Also available from compatible vendors is an enhanced e-book version containing never-before-seen video clips of the survivors, their descendants, and the cities as they are today. Filmed by the author during his research in Japan, these 18 videos are placed throughout the text, taking readers beyond the page and offering an eye-opening and personal way to understand how the effects of the atomic bombs are still felt 70 years after detonation.

Here, in this raw account of one doctor's journey to Hell and back ... is the "prescription" that could save the life of someone you love. Addiction can affect anyone - of any occupation, education, or social class. The most common denominator among all addicts though ... is that they once thought it could never happen to them. As Head of the Department of Vascular Surgery at a large community hospital, Dr. Steve Heird was well aware of all this. Yet even as he wrote one illegal prescription after another - all for himself - he refused to believe he had a problem. He was in control. It could never happen to him. But the day came when - tired of playing a game of cat-and-mouse with the DEA, and finally ready to accept help with his problem - Steve had to face his family and go into rehab. Everything that mattered to him - his family, his career, his lifestyle - was on the line, and he risked losing it all, to serve a ten-year prison sentence. "That was one of the worst days of my life" he now says. "I had hurt the people I loved most. I felt overwhelmed with shame and self-loathing. How could I have screwed up so badly?" But there's a silver lining to the cloud that followed Dr. Heird all those years. His personal healing has led to the creation of a system of strategies for recognizing the warning signs - whether in yourself or others - and overcoming any addictions, along with the fear and self-doubt that feed them. In this entertaining and inspiring true-life account, and through his Prescriptions For Awareness healing program, Dr. Heird proves beyond a doubt that NOBODY is entirely "above the reach" of addiction, and no addict need ever feel doomed to remain forever within its grasp.

Domestic abuse at the hands of a spouse is a bitter reality that many men experience but are conditioned by society to hide. Abuse of men at the hands of women is something that does occur, but because of male pride and cultural conditioning, it often remains in the shadows. In To Hell and Back: My Life as an Abused Husband, author Kimber Broughton narrates the true story of Jonathan, a man who suffered a morass of abuse, psychological torment, and financial violation by his manipulative former wife, Stacy. This memoir describes Jonathan’s twelve years of abuse—the hell he experienced, how he handled the cruelty, and how he was finally able to leave the marriage and overcome the after effects. This memoir tells one man’s brutally honest story in order to share it with other men who are living through the nightmare of abuse. Detailing how to recognize the warning signs of abusive relationships and how to fight to get free of them, this book expresses that rebuilding pride and finding real love again after an abusive relationship is possible.

These are just some of the qualities of the members of the U.S. Special Operation Forces. BEYOND HELL AND BACK details the seven defining Special Ops missions that have made the Special Operation Forces the best fighting unit in the world, including: *THE RESCUE OF BAT-21: The largest and longest Combat Search and Rescue mission in the Vietnam War lasted 17 days and cost the lives of 13 Americans—all to rescue one man and the invaluable knowledge he alone possessed. * TASK FORCE NORMANDY: Planned in secrecy and executed with flawless efficiency, Task Force Normandy was an Army/Air Force Special Operations joint op that fired the opening shots behind enemy lines in Operation Desert Storm. *OPERATION EAGLE CLAW: The devastating Special Forces operation mounted to retrieve 52 American hostages in Iran resulted in the deaths of eight members of the rescue team. This failure ultimately led to the creation of Special Operations Command. *BASHER 52: Captain Scott O'Grady was shot down over the "no fly" zone above Bosnia, and his daring rescue was one of the Marine Corps' finest operations ever. These are a few of the dramatic true tales that represent the defining moments that helped shape the operational methods, planning, and deployment for all future Special Ops missions.

To Hell & Back is a captivating mix of trauma and humour, good fortune and not-so-good, written by semi-retired holiday rep, Norma Coles after some thirteen years on the move in the second half of her working life. The mother of two daughters' story begins at the low point of her personal and professional days when her marriage had broken up and her small business, a fish and chip shop in a small Yorkshire town, had closed down. Norma wasn't quite sure who she was any more so, rather than sit and sulk, she set off in the travel business, visiting parts of the world she could have only dreamed about as she dispensed the salt and vinegar. From the Caribbean to the Canaries via the likes of Spain, Portugal and Cyprus, she experienced enough life on the move to fill a small book. So she did. In these pages are tales of exotic destinations, a hurricane, and an earthquake, torrential rain that caused landslides and characters galore. The book could easily have been entitled: Benidorm, Eat Your Heart Out! There are a couple of drunks, a nymphomaniac, a self-confessed fraudster, a lady who forgot her knickers, a gentleman who forgot his trousers, a nude who unintentionally gave the hotel gardener an eyeful...and a moving display by elephants saving themselves from a runaway rhino. By the end of the story, when she had quite literally travelled to hell and back, but with a lorra, lorra laughs along the way, Norma Coles was satisfied that she had found her 'true self'. Her story makes an interesting, easy read.
