Book 2: Stories of Women of the Industrial Revolution Most of the time, when you sit down with a book of history, you are going to be reading about men. Men who win wars and men who lose wars. Men who create empires, and men who destroy empires. Men who author great works and design great machines that change the course of the world. The thing is, half the people in the world are women. What about them? Women have also done a lot of creating, and destroying, authoring, and designing, right alongside the men. This book is about eight of those women who were born and lived in the time between the beginning of the Industrial Revolution until the present day: Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797), whose short life rode the leading edge of a wave of change, and who can rightfully be called the world's first feminist. Ada Lovelace (1815-1852), a mathematician whose father was poet/adventurer George Gordon Lord Byron, who called her approach to formal thinking "poetical science," and who is credited with writing the world's first computer program. Harriet Tubman (ca. 1822-1913), the fifth of nine children born to plantation slaves in Maryland, who risked her life to gain freedom for herself and her family, who fought and spied for the Union during the American Civil War, and whose image will soon grace the American $20 bill. Margaret Knight (1838-1914), who had to drop out of school when she was twelve years old, and never went back, and yet became one of the most successful inventors of her age. Nancy Wake (1912-2011), who once said that when men have to go off to war, "I don't see why we woman should just wave our men a proud goodbye and then knit them balaclavas." So during World War Two she learned to shoot and spy, and fight hand to hand, and then jumped out of an airplane into The Mirabal Sisters: Patria (1924-1960), Minerva (1926-1960) and Maria Teresa (1935-1960). Some stories don't get to have a happy ending. This is one of them.

Scientific confirmation of advanced civilization at the end of the last ice age, the solar catastrophe that destroyed it, and what the evidence means for our future • Demonstrates, based on the 12,000-year-old megalithic complex of Göbekli Tepe, that advanced civilization extends thousands of years further back than generally acknowledged • Examines the catastrophic solar outbursts that ended the last ice age, wiping out antediluvian civilization and incinerating much of the evidence of that period • Reveals data that show solar outbursts powerful enough to devastate modern society could return in the future Building upon his revolutionary theory that the Sphinx dates back much further than 2500 BCE, geologist Robert Schoch reveals scientific evidence of advanced civilization predating ancient Egypt, Sumeria, and Greece, as well as the catastrophe that destroyed it nearly 12,000 years ago and what its legacy can teach us about our own future. Combining evidence from multiple scientific disciplines, Schoch shows how the last ice age ended abruptly in 9700 BCE due to coronal mass ejections from the Sun. These solar outbursts unleashed electrical/plasma discharges upon Earth and triggered volcanic activity, earthquakes, fires, and massive floods as glaciers melted and lightning strikes released torrential rains from the oceans. He explains how these events eradicated the civilization of the time and set humanity back thousands of years, only to reemerge around 3500 BCE with scattered memories and nascent abilities. He explores within this framework, how many megalithic monuments, underground cities, and ancient legends fall logically into place, as well as the reinterpreted Easter Island rongorongo texts and the intentional burial, 10,000 years ago, of the Göbekli Tepe complex in Turkey. Schoch reveals scientific evidence that shows how history could repeat itself with a coronal mass ejection powerful enough to devastate modern society. Weaving together a new view of the origins of civilization, the truths behind ancient wisdom, and the dynamics of the planet we live on, Schoch maintains we must heed the megalithic warning of the past and collectively prepare for future events.

A Little History Of The World

E. H. Gombrich's Little History of the World, though written in 1935, has become one of the treasures of historical writing since its first publication in English in 2005. The Yale edition alone has now sold over half a million copies, and the book is available worldwide in almost thirty languages. Gombrich was of course the best-known art historian of his time, and his text suggests illustrations on every page. This illustrated edition of the Little History brings together the pellucid humanity of his narrative with the images that may well have been in his mind's eye as he wrote the book. The two hundred illustrations—most of them in full color—are not simple embellishments, though they are beautiful. They emerge from the text, enrich the author's intention, and deepen the pleasure of reading this remarkable work. For this edition the text is reset in a spacious format, flowing around illustrations that range from paintings to line drawings, emblems, motifs, and symbols. The book incorporates freshly drawn maps, a revised preface, and a new index. Blending high-grade design, fine paper, and classic binding, this is both a sumptuous gift book and an enhanced edition of a timeless account of human history.
