Alaska: Saga of a Bold Land

Editura: Harper Perennial

Anul aparitiei: 2004

The history of Alaska is filled with stories of new land and new riches -- and ever present are new people with competing views over how the valuable resources should be used: Russians exploiting a fur empire; explorers checking rival advances; prospectors stampeding to the clarion call of "Gold!"; soldiers battling out a decisive chapter in world war; oil wildcatters looking for a different kind of mineral wealth; and always at the core of these disputes is the question of how the land is to be used and by whom. While some want Alaska to remain static, others are in the vanguard of change. Alaska: Saga of a Bold Land shows that there are no easy answers on either side and that Alaska will always be crossing the next frontier.

Chocolate Busters The Easy Way to Kick it!

Editura: HarperCollins Publishers

Anul aparitiei: 2004

Break free from your chocolate addiction with Jason Vale's irreverent, zany and original new book. Jason, aka The JuiceMaster, reveals the dangers of chocolate's ingredients (sugar, dairy and additives), the marketing industry's ploys to keep us all hooked and our emotional attachment to the sweet stuff- and shows you how to kick the habit. Jason Vale offers his own take on the SugarBusters and anti-dairy phenomenon, taking a pop at the food and marketing industries and showing you how to free yourself from the mental food trap by reframing your thoughts. Sugar is the cocaine of the food world, responsible for obesity, diabetes and a host of other problems. Dairy is equally bad for us and is an acid-forming food. Many people's stomachs aren't suited to break the lactose down properly and so it affects our ability to digest the nutrients from other food. This book also examines the ways in which the advertising agencies seduce us and keep us hooked, as well as examining the emotional attachments we have to chocolate, created from early childhood: 'the chocolate nanny' as Jason puts it. Jason's lively debate, full of amazing information that makes your hair stand on end, is enough to ...

Stargazing Memoirs of a Young Lighthouse Keeper

Editura: Canongate Books Ltd

Anul aparitiei: 2004

When Peter Hill, a student at Dundee College of Art, answered an advert in The Scotsman seeking lighthouse keepers, little did he imagine that within a month he would be living with three men he didn't know in a lighthouse on Pladda, a small remote island off the west coast of Scotland. Hill was nineteen, it was 1973 and, with his head fed by Vietnam, Zappa, Kerouac, Vonnegut, Watergate and Coronation Street, he spent six months on various lighthouses, "keeping" with all manner of unusual and fascinating people. Within thirty years this way of life was to have disappeared entirely. The resulting book is a charming and beautifully written memoir that is not only a heartfelt lament for Hill's own youth and innocence but also for a simpler and more honest age.

The Bolsheviks Come to Power The Revolution of 1917 in Petrograd

Editura: Pluto Press

Anul aparitiei: 2017

The Bolsheviks Come to Power is one of the most important histories of the Russian Revolution to challenge the mainstream narratives. Originally published to great acclaim in 2004, this new edition marks the 100th anniversary of one of the explosive and game-changing moments in modern times. In this absorbing narrative, Alexander Rabinowitch counters the claims by mainstream historians that the revolution was a military coup led by Lenin and a small band of fanatics. He refutes the Soviet myth that the party's triumph in the October Revolution was inevitable, and explains the ebbs and flows of the revolutionary period, tracing the moods of the working class and the political positions of the Bolsheviks at different historical moments, including the immediate aftermath of the February Revolution, the July Days, the Kornilov affair, and up to and including the October Revolution itself. Drawn from a wealth of primary sources and archival material, this new edition of Rabinowitch's classic account is a must-have for anyone interested in clearing away the tired platitudes of mainstream historians, and reclaiming the revolution on this important anniversary. ...
