The Name Of War

by Jill Lepore, The Name Of War Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Name Of War book, Winner of the Bancroft Prize King Philip's War, the excruciating racial war—colonists against Indians—that erupted in New England in 1675, was, in proportion to population, the bloodiest in American history. Some even argued that the massacres and outrages on both sides were too horrific to "deserve the name of a war." The war's brutality compelled the colonists to defend themselves against accusations that they had become savages. But Jill Lepore makes clear that it was after the war—and because of it—that the boundaries between cultures, hitherto blurred, turned into rigid ones. King Philip's War became one of the most written-about wars in our history, and Lepore argues that the words strengthened and hardened feelings that, in turn, strengthened and hardened the enmity between Indians and Anglos. Telling the story of what may have been the bitterest of American conflicts, and its reverberations over the centuries, Lepore has enabled us to see how the ways in which we remember past events are as important in their effect on our history as were the events themselves. Winner of the the 1998 Ralph Waldo Emerson Award of the Phi Beta Kappa Society

Making War In The Name Of God

by Christopher Catherwood, Making War In The Name Of God Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Making War In The Name Of God book, From Islam declaring Jihad against the west, to Arab against Jew, to Catholic against Protestant, one question resonates with the global threat we face today: Why does God inspire the killing of Man? Renowned historian Christopher Catherwood vividly recounts a saga of passion and prejudice that laid the foundation for our own troubled age. Beginning with the death in 632 of Muhammad--as much political leader and general as prophet--Islam commenced its breathtaking spread, which, under Muhammad's successors, eventually conquered an empire larger than Rome's. Even as this vast realm broke apart into Sunni and Shiite factions, the Christian retaliation--ruthlessly and unscrupulously unleashed in 1095 with the First Crusade--sparked a clash between East and West that continues to this day. The pattern would repeat itself again and again: with the Ottoman invasion of the Balkans, in which the same Islamic faith that had once been an institution of tolerance in places like Spain became an instrument of expansion; with the wars of the Reformation, when Catholic and Protestant slaughtered each other in the name of the Prince of Peace; and with the endless conflicts of today's Middle East, savagely fought over by three faiths that all worship the same God. Based on exhaustive research and written with an unflinching, unbiased eye toward revealing the often painful truth, Making War in the Name of God unveils humanity's ancient habit of sanctifying bloodshed--and exposes a past that we forget at our peril. Christopher Catherwood teaches history at Cambridge University in England and at the University of Richmond (Virginia). A fellow of the Royal Historical Society, he is the author of several acclaimed books, including Churchill's Folly: How Winston Churchill Created Modern Iraq, A God Divided: Understanding the Differences Between Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, and Whose Side Is God On?

War Peace And Prosperity In The Name Of God

by Murat Iyigun, War Peace And Prosperity In The Name Of God Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download War Peace And Prosperity In The Name Of God book, Differences among religious communities have motivated—and continue to motivate—many of the deadliest conflicts in human history. But how did political power and organized religion become so thoroughly intertwined? And how have religion and religiously motivated conflicts affected the evolution of societies throughout history, from demographic and sociopolitical change to economic growth? War, Peace, and Prosperity in the Name of God turns the focus on the “big three monotheisms”—Judaism, Islam, and Christianity—to consider these questions. Chronicling the relatively rapid spread of the Abrahamic religions among the Old World, Murat Iyigun shows that societies that adhered to a monotheistic belief in that era lasted longer, suggesting that monotheism brought some sociopolitical advantages. While the inherent belief in one true god meant that these religious communities had sooner or later to contend with one another, Iyigun shows that differences among them were typically strong enough to trump disagreements within. The book concludes by documenting the long-term repercussions of these dynamics for the organization of societies and their politics in Europe and the Middle East.

In The Name Of Democracy

by Jeremy Brecher, In The Name Of Democracy Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download In The Name Of Democracy book, A riveting documentary anthology that examines a deeply disturbing question: Is the United States guilty of war crimes in Iraq? Until recently, the possibility that the United States was responsible for war crimes seemed unthinkable to most Americans. But as previously suppressed information has started to emerge—photographs from Abu Ghraib; accounts of U.S. attacks on Iraqi hospitals, mosques, and residential neighborhoods; secret government reports defending unilateral aggression—Americans have begun an agonizing reappraisal of the Iraq war and the way in which their government has conducted it. Drawing on a wide range of documents—from the protocols of the Geneva Convention to FBI e-mails about prisoners held in Guantánamo Bay to executive-branch papers justifying the circumvention of international law—In the Name of Democracy examines the legality of the Iraq war and the occupation that followed. Included in this powerful investigation are eyewitness accounts, victim testimonials, statements by soldiers turned resisters and whistle-blowers, interviews with intelligence insiders, and contributions by Mark Danner and Seymour Hersh. The result is a controversial, chilling anthology that explores the culpability of officials as well as the responsibilities of ordinary citizens, and for the first time squarely confronts the matter of American impunity.

In The Name Of Freedom

by Lawrence Heatley, In The Name Of Freedom Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download In The Name Of Freedom book, Since the 2001 posthumous transcription and release of his father’s World War II memoir, Breathes There A Soldier, L.G. Heatley has followed that work with In the Name of Freedom. The first volume in the series, comprising first person accounts of World War II, as told by veterans from all branches of service and theaters of operation, presents each chapter as a separate veteran’s wartime experience. From the frigid forests of France and Belgium to the bloody sands of Saipan and Peleliu In the Name of Freedom is a testament of the war from those who were there. Few books have been written which capture the detailed viewpoint of the fighting enlisted man of the era. There are no battle overviews or campaign summaries from combat strategists in this book. The reader will take a journey through the war with each veteran, to places of tragedy, triumph and turmoil, where human kindness overcame brutality, despite the odds. They were the American enlisted servicemen of World War II. These are their experiences.

Download In The Name Of The Father book, In October of 1990, four members of Tracy's family were assassinated in Lebanon in what is still referred to as the worst massacre of the Lebanese Civil war. Those killed were her father Dany, her step-mother Ingred, and two step brothers, Tarek and Julian aged 7 and 5 respectively. Only Tracy's 1-year-old sister, Tamara, who was asleep in her crib and believed not to be seen during the raid, survived. Tracy was visiting in the United States at the time. Since those tragedies, she began to live and practice her messages of peace through her writing. Her first book published in France, 'Au Nom Du Pere' (In the Name of the Father) won the prestigious Prix Verite (Prize of Truth) by the city of Cannes, France in 1991. It is written in autobiographical form and speaks of her life growing up in a prominent political family during the civil war (1974 ' 1990) in Lebanon and it culminates with the assassination of her family members.
