CharleMagne: A Fascinating Biography and Legacy of Medieval King of Franks, Charles the Great (Fascinating World History Episode Book 15) by History-Episode 4.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 10 hours ago

A Complete Biography of CharleMagne, the Great Very little is known of the latter part of the period in European history known as the Dark Ages. There is a vast amount of European history that remains blank due to low literacy rates and a lack of written record-keeping. By the mid-8th century no centralized European authority had yet arisen to take the place of the Roman Empire since its collapse. But in Germany, the Frankish dynasty began to establish itself and eventually their kingdom covered most of modern day France as well as other parts of Central and Eastern Europe. In the midst of all of the chaos to control the land, one individual stood at the heart of the Franks' expansion: Charlemagne. A pious and arrogant leader, he made such an impact on the world that he is arguably still one of the greatest kings to have ever ruled. Charlemagne established his dynasty and elevated his family's influence throughout Europe. His is a story full of violence and heroism, displaying ...

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx (Karl Marx And Friedrich Engels) 3.9 Stars (1,653 Review)    Price verified 10 hours ago

Originally published in 1848 as a political pamphlet, The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels would become one of the most influential works of the era. Written as a summary of the authors' political thought, the Manifesto is also a reflection of the unrest and the revolutions of the time. The Manifesto analyzes the struggle due to social inequality and the problems presented by a capitalist society. This work also speculates on the limited future of a totally capitalist driven economy, predicting that eventually the world would turn to socialism. By 1860, The Manifesto had fallen into obscurity and was not as important as it once was but that would change in the latter part of the nineteenth-century when Karl Marx grew more influential in socialist circles. Russia became the world's first socialist state with the Manifesto being its primary outline for the new social order.

Chasing Apple To Find Jerry by Alexis Reed 5.0 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

Alexis Reed had always known there was something different about her father Jerry -- he'd been nicknamed "Crazy Apple," after all, and the few interactions they'd shared in her youth were defined by his unpredictable mood swings, hard-to-follow conversations, and a prevailing, obsessive belief that he'd soon reunite with Alexis's mother. Rather than to go on pretending she was fatherless, however, a high school assignment inspired Alexis to try and understand the man who she called Dad and everyone else called crazy. Heartfelt, raw, and unflinching in its portrayal of a daughter learning to navigate her father's mental illness and perpetual homelessness, Chasing Apple to Find Jerry is an unforgettable memoir that takes readers on a journey of Alexis's most promising father-daughter triumphs and deepest familial disappointments -- all in the name of finding, and keeping, her beloved father Jerry around for good.

Condition Red: Destroyer Action in the South Pacific by Frederick J. Bell (Arcadia Press) 4.2 Stars (513 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

"Condition Red" was an expression that we used to indicate the imminence of any type of engagement. Aboard the G it was a colloquialism that served to express the conviction that the next few hours or days or weeks were going to be packed with action. We first heard it soon after we arrived in the Solomons, where the term was used on Guadalcanal and Tulagi to indicate the approach of the enemy, and when our voice radio blared out the words we went to General Quarters and prepared to greet the Tokyo Express or the Zeros and Mitsubishis when they came within view.
