This is the story of the difficult, dangerous early years of Bomber Command’s war: a story of men and machines thrown into battle against hopeless odds and sacrificed because they were too few and it was too late.
It is the often frightening story of decisions, right and wrong, that influenced the course of the strategic air offensive against Germany.
But above all, it is a story of courage and endurance, of the men whose nightly effort in the skies above Germany did so much to sustain the morale of the British people at a time when the might of the Third Reich seemed everywhere victorious.
This is the heroic story of Bomber Command at the start of their long and arduous war.
Praise for Robert Jackson:
‘There are many good stories about brave men.’ – The Daily Telegraph

Jeroen Duindam, “Dynasties: A Global History of Power, 1300-1800”

English | ISBN: 1107060680, 1107637589 | 2016 | 404 pages | PDF | 2 MB
For thousands of years, societies have fallen under the reign of a single leader, ruling as chief, king, or emperor. In this fascinating global history of medieval and early modern dynastic power, Jeroen Duindam charts the rise and fall of dynasties, the rituals of rulership, and the contested presence of women on the throne. From European, African, Mughal, Ming-Qing and Safavid dynasties to the Ottoman Empire, Tokugawa Japan and Chosŏn Korea, he reveals the tension between the ideals of kingship and the lives of actual rulers, the rich variety of arrangements for succession, the households or courts which catered to rulers’ daily needs, and the relationship between the court and the territories under its control. The book integrates numerous African examples, sets dynasties within longer-term developments such as the rise of the state, and examines whether the tensions inherent in dynastic power led inexorably to cycles of ascent and decline.

Cold War Freud: Psychoanalysis in an Age of Catastrophes by Dagmar Herzog

English | January 9, 2017 | ISBN: 1107072395, ASIN: B01MSHB98T | AZW3 | 318 pages | 2.8 MB
In Cold War Freud Dagmar Herzog uncovers the astonishing array of concepts of human selfhood which circulated across the globe in the aftermath of World War II. Against the backdrop of Nazism and the Holocaust, the sexual revolution, feminism, gay rights, and anticolonial and antiwar activism, she charts the heated battles which raged over Freud’s legacy.
From the postwar US to Europe and Latin America, she reveals how competing theories of desire, anxiety, aggression, guilt, trauma and pleasure emerged and were then transformed to serve both conservative and subversive ends in a fundamental rethinking of the very nature of the human self and its motivations. Her findings shed new light on psychoanalysis’ enduring contribution to the enigma of the relationship between nature and culture, and the ways in which social contexts enter into and shape the innermost recesses of individual psyches.

Starting with an overview of Kantian perspectives on peace, it moves to discussions of the Just War debates, religious conceptualizations of peace, and the role of peace in modern war technology and cyber-security.
