  • HumansHumans Phillips, Tom Baker & Taylor Books 出版 2019/5/7出版

    An exhilarating history of humankind, chronicling thousands of years of trial and error—but mostly error—in the rise of civilizationModern humans have come a long way in the seventy thousand years they’ve walked the earth. Art, science, culture, trade—on the evolutionary food chain, we’re true winners. But it hasn’t always been smooth sailing, and sometimes—just occasionally—we’ve managed to truly f*ck things up.Weaving together history, science, politics and pop culture, Humans offers a panoramic exploration of humankind in all its glory, or lack thereof. From Lucy, our first ancestor, who fell out of a tree and died, to General Zhou Shou of China, who stored gunpowder in his palace before a lantern festival, to the Austrian army attacking itself one drunken night, to the most spectacular fails of the present day, Humans reveals how even the most mundane mistakes can shift the course of civilization as we know it. Lively, wry and brimming with brilliant insight, this unique compendium offers a fresh take on world history and is one of the most entertaining reads of the year.

  • Full Spectrum ResistanceFull Spectrum Resistance Mcbay, Aric Seven Stories Pr 出版 2019/4/23出版

    A thorough history of and guide to resistance movements for those who want REAL change and are tired of simply marching and calling their representatives.The more than fifty resistance movements and sub-movements featured here make this the radical's guide to restoring our rights, saving our planet, and creating lasting change. From mid-nineteenth century Chinese rebellions against colonial exploitation and ecological disasters to the Grassy Narrows' fight against mercury poisoning and colonialism to the Stonewall riots and parades for LGBT rights to Black Lives Matter, Full Spectrum Resistance's two volumes are some of the only books on activism that actually cover RESISTANCE, not just passive, risk-averse modes of activism. Author, activist, and farmer Aric McBay provides in-depth histories and case studies of social justice and environmental movements, both radical and liberal, to explain why passive resistance alone cannot work, and why we must be prepared to do whatever it takes to truly create change. In Full Spectrum Resistance, Volume 1: Building Movements and Fighting to Win, we learn why we need resistance movements, how movements--such as the Deacons of Defense of the American Civil Rights Movement--fight when they want to win, and what makes movements effective. We also learn how and why people join movements and how we can successfully encourage them--as the anti-colonial revolution in Guinea and Cape Verde did. How groups like Act-UP form and organize themselves, and rules and practices groups use to stay secure and protected from infiltration by destructive people. "I wrote this book because we are losing," says McBay in chapter one, and he's right. Here's how we win.

  • MoonboundMoonbound Fetter-vorm, Jonathan Hill & Wang Pub 出版 2019/6/4出版

    A rich, full-color graphic exploration of our journey to the moon and a celebration of scientific achievementOn July 20, 1969, something extraordinary happened, something civilizations had dreamed of for centuries: humans walked on the moon. Jonathan Fetter-Vorm Moonbound is the story behind those first steps. It begins with the tense, suspense-filled descent of the spidery Lunar Module, which transported Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the surface of the moon; the narrative offers a close-up view of the action. Then the story splits to an examination of the history of man fascination with spacerom the earliest observers of the moon to the clear-eyed descriptions recorded by such visionaries as Galileond continues into the modern era, from Nazi atrocities and Soviet intrigues to square-jawed astronauts and a revolving cast of space-age dreamers. The narrative returns to July 20, 1969, the moment when our heroes made their historic moon walk, and finally moves on to the Space Shuttle program, the cosmic ambitions of deep-space probes, and the aspirations of companies like SpaceX.The story of space has always been about the conflict of imagination versus reality, of dreams versus politics. Publishing in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing, Moonbound revisits this classic story in a new way, as a graphic history.

  • Before Freedom, When I Just Can RememberBefore Freedom, When I Just Can Remember Hurmence, Belinda (EDT) Baker & Taylor Books 出版 1989/4/1出版

    During the 1930s, the Federal Writers?Project undertook the task of locating former slaves and recording their oral histories. The more than ten thousand pages of interviews with over two thousand former slaves were filed in the Library of Congress, where they were known to scholars and historians but few others. From this storehouse of information, Belinda Hurmence has chosen twenty-seven narratives from the twelve hundred typewritten pages of interviews with 284 former South Carolina slaves. The result is a moving, eloquent, and often surprising firsthand account of the last years of slavery and first years of freedom. The former slaves describe the clothes they wore, the food they ate, the houses they lived in, the work they did, and the treatment they received. They give their impressions of Yankee soldiers, the Klan, their masters, and their newfound freedom.Belinda Hurmence was born in Oklahoma, raised in Texas, and educated at the University of Texas and Columbia University. She has written several novels for young people, including Tough Tiffany (an ALA Notable Book), A Girl Called Boy (winner of the Parents' Choice Award), and The Nightwalker. She has also edited My Folks Don't Want Me to Talk About Slavery and We Lived in a Little Cabin in the Yard, companion volumes to this book. She now lives in Raleigh, NC.

  • Hanoi JaneHanoi Jane Lembcke, Jerry Univ of Massachusetts Pr 出版 2010/6/30出版

    From Aristophanes' Lysistrata to the notorious Mata Hari and the legendary Tokyo Rose, stories of female betrayal during wartime have recurred throughout human history. The myth of Hanoi Jane, Jerry Lembcke argues, is simply the latest variation on this enduring theme. Like most of the iconic femmes fatales who came before, it is based on a real person, Jane Fonda. And also like its predecessors, it combines traces of fact with heavy doses of fiction to create a potent symbol of feminine perfidy---part erotic warrior-woman Barbarella, part savvy antiwar activist, and part powerful entrepreneur.Hanoi Jane, the book, deconstructs Hanoi Jane, the myth, to locate its origins in the need of Americans to explain defeat in Vietnam through fantasies of home-front betrayal and the emasculation of the national will-to-war. Lembcke shows that the expression "Hanoi Jane" did not reach the eyes and ears of most Americans until five or six years after the end of the war in Vietnam. By then, anxieties about America's declining global status and deteriorating economy were fueling a populist reaction that pointed to the loss of the war as the taproot of those problems. Blaming the antiwar movement for undermining the military's resolve, many found in the imaginary Hanoi Jane the personification of their stab-in-the-back theories.Ground zero of the myth was the city of Hanoi itself, which Jane Fonda had visited as a peace activist in July 1972. Rumors surrounding Fonda's visits with U.S. POWs and radio broadcasts to troops combined to conjure allegations of treason that had cost American lives. That such tales were more imagined than real did not prevent them from insinuating themselves into public memory, where they have continued to infect American politics and culture.Hanoi Jane is a book about the making of Hanoi Jane by those who saw a formidable threat in the Jane Fonda who supported soldiers and veterans opposed to the war they fought, in the postcolonial struggle of the Vietnamese people to make their own future, and in the movements of women everywhere for gender equality."This is not a narrowly focused effort to compare the `real' Jane Fonda to the image of `Hanoi Jane.' Rather, Lembcke shows how Fonda's demonization played an important part in a powerful right-wing campaign to attribute American defeat in Vietnam to left-wing scapegoats and to reconsitute U.S. power as well as the ideal of aggresive masculinity."---Christian G. Appy, author of Patriots: The Vietnam War Remembered from All Sides"Pulsing with brilliant insights and invaluable scholarship, Hanoi Jane is much more than a biography of a single myth. It is an exploration of some of the thagled cultural, psychological, and historical strands that constitute American memory of the Vietnam War, memory with profound influence on American culture and behavior in the last quarter of the twentieth century and the first." decade of the twenty-first."---H. Bruce Franklin author of Vietnam and Other American FantasiesCover photos: (top) Jane Fonda as Barbarella, 1968; (bottom) Fonda surrounded by soldiers and reporters while seated on an anti-aircraft gun near Hanoi during the Vietnam War, July 1972.

  • Rome and ItalyRome and Italy Livy, S. Penguin Classics 出版 1982/8/1出版

    Books VI-X of Livy's monumental work trace Rome's fortunes from its near collapse after defeat by the Gauls in 386 BC to its emergence, in a matter of decades, as the premier power in Italy, having conquered the city-state of Samnium in 293 BC. In this fascinating history, events are described not simply in terms of partisan politics, but through colourful portraits that bring the strengths, weaknesses and motives of leading figures such as the noble statesman Camillus and the corrupt Manlius vividly to life. While Rome's greatest chronicler intended his history to be a memorial to former glory, he also had more didactic aimsoping that readers of his account could learn from the past ills and virtues of the city.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

  • Visionary WomenVisionary Women Barnet, Andrea Ecco Pr 出版 2019/3/5出版

    Longlisted for the PEN/Bograd Weld Prize for BiographyFour influential women we thought we knew well—Jane Jacobs, Rachel Carson, Jane Goodall, and Alice Waters—and how they spearheaded the modern progressive movementThis is the story of four visionaries who profoundly shaped the world we live in today. Together, these women—linked not by friendship or field, but by their choice to break with convention—showed what one person speaking truth to power can do. Jane Jacobs fought for livable cities and strong communities; Rachel Carson warned us about poisoning the environment; Jane Goodall demonstrated the indelible kinship between humans and animals; and Alice Waters urged us to reconsider what and how we eat. With a keen eye for historical detail, Andrea Barnet traces the arc of each woman’s career and explores how their work collectively changed the course of history. While they hailed from different generations, Carson, Jacobs, Goodall, and Waters found their voices in the early sixties. At a time of enormous upheaval, all four stood as bulwarks against 1950s corporate culture and its war on nature. Consummate outsiders, each prevailed against powerful and mostly male adversaries while also anticipating the disaffections of the emerging counterculture. All told, their efforts ignited a transformative progressive movement while offering people a new way to think about the world and a more positive way of living in it.
