Book may have numerous typos, missing text, images, or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1897. Excerpt: ... OUR POSITION IN SOUTH AFRICA. UNFORTUNATE in many respects as were the startling occurrences which took place in South Africa two years ago, yet there is one very distinct advantage which may be deduced from them. For a long period of years the British public had been treating South Africa with more or less of indifference, in so far as its political relations to the Empire were concerned. No doubt South Africa, and more particularly the Transvaal, had been engaging special attention in the financial world for so...

Augustus and the Creation of the Roman Empire

The 45-year reign of Caesar Augustus (31 BCE to 14 CE) marked the creation of the Roman Empire, which would survive in the West for another five centuries. Unlike the rulers who came before him— Pompey, Julius Caesar, and Marc Antony—Augustus maintained nearly absolute power as he established the ideology and institutions of the Pax Romana, which gave the citizens of Rome two centuries of peace and social stability. This collection of primary sources offers multiple viewpoints of the rise, achievements, and legacy of Augustus and his empire. Ronald Mellor’s fluid introduction parallels the organization of the documents that follow to provide students with the historical context necessary for exploring these translations of ancient texts. Document headnotes, a list of literary sources for the Age of Augustus, a glossary of Greek and Latin terms, a chronology, questions for consideration, and a selected bibliography offer additional pedagogical support and encourage students to analyze the reign that transformed the history of Europe and the Mediterranean basin.

The Book of General Ignorance

Misconceptions, misunderstandings, and flawed facts finally get the heave-ho in this humorous, downright humiliating book of reeducation based on the phenomenal British bestseller. Challenging what most of us assume to be verifiable truths in areas like history, literature, science, nature, and more,The Book of General Ignorance is a witty “gotcha” compendium of how little we actually know about anything. It’ll have you scratching your head wondering why we even bother to go to school. Think Magellan was the first man to circumnavigate the globe, baseball was invented in America, Henry VIII had six wives, Mount Everest is the tallest mountain? Wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong again. You...

The General Book of the Tarot

One of the most fascinating areas of the occult - and one of the least understood is the subject of the Tarot, those mystical cards hundreds - perhaps thousands - of years old, which come down to us from an origin shrouded in mystery. Many things are claimed for the Tarot pack: it is reputed to have been the ancestor of our modern playing cards; it is supposed to contain all the Wisdom of the Ages, symbolically expressed; it is said to have the power to foretell the future. Whatever their powers, the Tarot cards never fail to fascinate the casual experimenter and to richly repay the serious student of their mysteries. Dr. Thierens offers a clear, concise explanation of the Tarot, both the Lesser and the Greater Arcana, and sets forth for the first time a carefully-worked-out system of correspondance between the Tarot and Astrology. He offers a key to divination with the cards that will be of great relevance as to those interested in both the Tarot and astrological studies.
