Book Excerpt:

In this highly controversial and original work, Damien Short systematically rethinks how genocide is and should be defined. Rather than focusing solely on a narrow conception of genocide as direct mass-killing, through close empirical analysis of a number of under-discussed case studies – including Palestine, Sri Lanka, Australia and Alberta, Canada – the book reveals the key role played by settler colonialism, capitalism, finite resources and the ecological crisis in driving genocidal social death on a global scale.

Book Excerpt:

Maria's Story is a true account of a Polish teen's trials and tribulations as a slave girl of the Nazis in the Second World War. Driven out of Krakow during the invasion by the German Army, Maria and her sister Stefania flee for the safety of their country village only to be rounded up and sent to forced labor in Greater Germania. The loveliness of their new home in an alpine village in Austria belies the hardship and loneliness they endure among strangers in a strange land. It's Maria's faith that keeps her going and it's her faith that gives her the strength to provide for and protect her love child after a dangerous secret liaison with one of the sons of the landowner for whom she toiled. Liberated by the American Army, Maria miraculously finds herself in a Polish Army camp in Italy where she has a whirlwind romance with a handsome young war hero, who takes her on an incredible journey that brings them to yet another land and an uncertain post-war future.

Book Excerpt:

Dark Pools is a gripping novel revolving around the audacious attempt by China to completely annihilate the US dollar – literally in the blink of an eye, using ultra sophisticated computing power – and replace it overnight with the Chinese renminbi as the new world currency. Their provocative actions are deliberately choreographed to coincide with a riot-torn crisis in Hong Kong involving the Pro-Democracy movement, and the covert construction of a highly confrontational military airstrip in the South China Seas. The narrative rapidly criss-crosses the globe over a 22-day period in August until the plot nears its dénouement: when the Chinese intend to strike at the very heart of the foreign exchange market. Dark Pools weaves together the worlds of international banking and high finance; numerous covert intelligence agencies; computer hackers and cyber criminals; political intrigue; and the awesome firepower of a US aircraft carrier task force. If China succeeds in its ambitious scheme, they will utterly devastate the dollar and bring America, and indeed the rest of the world, to its knees. A rebel group within the Politburo are intent on making China the only superpower left standing when Armageddon strikes: can they be stopped in time? Dark Pools is a geo-political, fast-moving, financial thriller, sweeping across London, New York, Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou. It will appeal to fans of speculative fiction, particularly those who are interested in contemporary issues such as cyber crime and currency wars.

'In Succession Livi Michael engages meticulously with the diverse historical accounts of the Wars of the Roses, but she also invests intimate and poignant humanity into the personal tragedies of an era wrought with conflict and terror.' Elizabeth Fremantle, author of Queen's Gambit Behind the bloody battle scenes of the Wars of the Roses lie the sinewy political skills of a remarkable pair of women. Margaret of Anjou, French, beautiful, unpopular; her marriage in 1444 to a young Henry VI causes national uproar. As English rule in France collapses, Henry goes insane, civil war erupts, and families are pitted against each other. With Henry VI incapacitated, Margaret Anjou is left to fight alone for her son's position as rightful heir. Meanwhile Margaret Beaufort, nobly born but far more distant from the throne, becomes a great heiress while only an infant. Her childhood is lived in echoing remote castles and she is lonely and vulnerable: everyone at Henry's court competes to be her guardian and to engineer an advantageous alliance through marriage to her. By the age of thirteen, she has married twice and given birth to her only son - the future King of England. But then she is separated from him . . . and her fight really begins Succession is the intense and powerful story of the women who gave birth to the Tudor dynasty.

Book Excerpt:

Juliette Drouet's Love-Letters to Victor Hugo : Edited with a Biography of Juliette Drouet In the first portion we present the biography of Juliette Drouet in the form of a series of synthetic tableaux, each tableau summarising several lustres of her life. We thus avoid the long-drawn-out narrative, year by year, of an existence devoid of incident or adventure. In the second, we publish those letters which strike us as peculiarly eloquent, witty, or lyrical. In the light shed upon them by the preliminary biography, they form, as one might say, its justification and natural sequel. At the outset of her liaison with the poet Juliette does not date her “scribbles”; she merely notes the time of day and the day of the week, until about 1840; we have therefore been obliged to content ourselves with the classification effected by her in the collection of her manuscripts, and preserved by her executor. From 1840 she dated every sheet. Consequently our work simultaneously achieves more precision and certainty.
