A unique struggle has been taking place in rural Pennsylvania since the start of the Industrial Revolution. An orthodox, hard-working culture has refused to tap into the convenience brought about by electricity and the combustion engine. They have fought astronomical odds to retain their way of life amid the population explosion of suburban Philadelphia. They have thus far succeeded. But in the dawn of the Computer Age a new challenge is coming to light. At the center of this challenge is a young man determined to see the world and break from the isolation of his people. His journey introduces him to the technology of tomorrow, while at the same time sealing him off from the purity of the past.

This book is a general survey of Ethiopia as a country and its people. It focuses on many subjects about Ethiopia's history, geography, politics and the diverse cultures of its people who collectively constitute one of the most fascinating countries in the history of Africa and of the entire world. It starts from the beginning when foundations were laid for what was later to become the country of Ethiopia which is one of the oldest civilisations in the world. Ethiopia also has the distinction of being the oldest Christian nation in Africa and one of the three oldest Christian countries in the world after Georgia and Armenia. Ethiopia converted to Christianity centuries before Europe did. And it is mentioned in the Bible many times. The book also covers Eritrea - its people, history and culture - but not in as much detail as it does Ethiopia. Still, the information about Eritrea is enough to serve as a simple and general introduction to the country. But the main focus of the book is on Ethiopia.

The Postwar Legacy of Appeasement

Focusing on the Cold War and the post-Cold War eras, R. Gerald Hughes explores the continuing influence of Appeasement on British foreign policy and re-evaluates the relationship between British society and Appeasement, both as historical memory and as a foreign policy process. The Postwar Legacy of Appeasement explores the reaction of British policy makers to the legacies of the era of Appeasement, the memory of Appeasement in public opinion and the media and the use of Appeasement as a motif in political debate regarding threats faced by Britain in the post-war era. Using many previously unpublished archival sources, this book clearly demonstrates that many of the core British beliefs and cultural norms that had underpinned the Chamberlainite Appeasement of the 1930s persisted in the postwar period.

The next adventure of The Seven Sins' Michael "The Tyrant" Tiranno, Jon Land's Black Scorpion is a pulse pounding action-thriller as he takes on a worldwide human trafficking cabal. Five years have passed since Michael Tiranno saved the city of Las Vegas from a terrorist attack. And now a new enemy has surfaced in Eastern Europe in the form of an all-powerful organization called Black Scorpion. Once a victim of human trafficking himself, the shadowy group's crazed leader, Vladimir Dracu, has become the mastermind behind the scourge's infestation on a global scale. And now he's set his sights on Michael Tiranno for reasons birthed in a painful secret past that have scarred both men. Already facing a myriad of problems, Michael once more must rise to the challenge of confronting an all-powerful enemy who is exploiting and ravaging innocents all across the globe and has set nothing less than all of America as its new victim. Black Scorpion has also taken the woman Michael loves hostage: Scarlett Swan, a beautiful archaeologist who was following the dangerous trail of the origins of the ancient relic that both defines and empowers Michael, a discovery that could change history and the perception of mankind's very origins. With the deck and the odds stacked against him, Michael must come to learn and embrace his true destiny in becoming the Tyrant reborn as a dark knight to triumph over ultimate evil and stop the sting of Black Scorpion from undermining all of the United States and plunging Las Vegas into chaos and anarchy. Writer/director Chuck Russell has been attached to The Seven Sins, an upcoming film based on a blended adaptation of The Seven Sins: The Tyrant Ascending and Black Scorpion: the Tyrant Reborn. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The body of this story traces the adventures of Terry Cooper before, during and after WWII. It starts with the private loss he felt as the war came crashing down on his north London neighborhood. It follows his personal growth both as a soldier and a young man rapidly exposed to the world outside the shell of his childhood life. He must tap into his training and street smarts to survive as an undercover agent hiding in Germany before D-Day, and the course of his mission is altered by a bazaar event he could never have imagined or planned for. His exposure to war time life in Germany shifts his narrow opinion of a people under threat. After his near death experiences desperately trying to get to the safe side of the moving battle lines of 1944, he endures the twisted mind of a war bureaucrat with a uniform and commission. At last he returns to his beloved mother and the unexpected challenge and self discovery while recovering in the west coast of Ireland. Later in his life an unanticipated legacy discovery shocks him, and the words of a stranger from so many years before suddenly become understandable.

The general's courage and calm under pressure would be echoed by many other sons and daughters of Manchester in the succeeding centuries, as the hamlet settled around Amoskeag Falls grew into New Hampshire's largest city. John Clayton describes thirty-two of the Queen City's most remarkable residents, from Iwo Jima flag raiser Rene Gagnon and fast-food innovator Richard McDonald to lesser-known but equally compelling figures, including beloved lunch cart driver Arthur Red Ullrich and the late firefighter Dave Anderson. Collecting columns first published in the New Hampshire Union Leader, Clayton reveals the essence of Manchester's enduring strength and appeal: its people.
