            Led by Donkeys: How four friends with a ladder took on Brexit (EPUB ebook – Main)

            By LedByDonkeys; Stewart, Ben; Sadri, James; Knowles, Oliver

            The official account - complete with full-colour illustrations - of how four ordinary people managed to expose the government's hypocrisies through a nationwide guerrilla advertising campaign.Seeking to highlight the hypocrisy of our politicians on Brexit four friends armed with ...nothing more than ladders, roller brushes and a treasure trove of damning statements from our leaders slapped up the politicians' biggest lies on billboards around the country.This guerrilla operation wasn't easy, but it wasn't long before the British public enabled them to take things into their own hands - and the rest is history. Leave the EU or remain? An apparently simple question divided the nation in historic fashion. Many of us believed the words of these politicians. By putting up their quotes as billboards, self-styled 'Led By Donkeys' had clear intentions - to compare the promises that have been made across the years with the damning reality.

            Bankers and Bolsheviks: International Finance and the Russian Revolution (EPUB ebook)

            By Malik, Hassan

            Following an unprecedented economic boom fed by foreign investment, the Russian Revolution triggered the worst sovereign default in history. Bankers and Bolsheviks tells the dramatic story of this boom and bust, chronicling the forgotten experiences of leading financiers of the a...ge.Shedding critical new light on the decision making of the powerful personalities who acted as the gatekeepers of international finance, Hassan Malik narrates how they channeled foreign capital into Russia in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. While economists have long relied on quantitative analysis to grapple with questions relating to the drivers of cross-border capital flows, Malik adopts a historical approach, drawing on banking and government archives in four countries. The book provides rare insights into the thinking of influential figures in world finance as they sought to navigate one of the most challenging and lucrative markets of the first modern age of globalization.Bankers and Bolsheviks reveals how a complex web of factors-from government interventions to competitive dynamics and cultural influences-drove a large inflow of capital during this tumultuous period in world history. This gripping book demonstrates how the realms of finance and politics-of bankers and Bolsheviks-grew increasingly intertwined, and how investing in Russia became a political act with unforeseen repercussions.

            The Russia Anxiety: And How History Can Resolve It (EPUB ebook)

            By Smith, Mark B.

            Russia is an exceptional country, the biggest in the world. It is both European and exotic, powerful and weak, brilliant and flawed. Why are we so afraid of it? Time and again, we judge Russia by unique standards. We have usually assumed that it possesses higher levels of cunning..., malevolence and brutality. Yet the country has more often than not been a crucial ally, not least against Napoleon and in the two world wars. We admire its music and its writers. We lavish praise on the Russian soul. And still we think of Russia as a unique menace. What is it about this extraordinary country that consistently provokes such excessive responses? And why is this so dangerous?Ranging from the earliest times to the present, Mark B. Smith's remarkable new book is a history of this 'Russia Anxiety'. Whether ally or enemy, superpower or failing state, Russia grips our imagination and fuels our fears unlike any other country. This book shows how history itself offers a clearer view and a better future.

            Der Band beleuchtet die vielgestaltige Resonanz auf die russische Oktoberrevolution, ein Ereignis, das die fundamentale Veranderung der politischen Koordinaten in Europa und der Welt zur Folge hatte. Um die globale Wirkungsgeschichte der Oktoberrevolution vergleichend zu betracht...en, leiten zwei unterschiedliche Perspektiven durch das Buch. Erstens fragt es nach den politischen Hoffnungen und weltrevolutionaren Erwartungen, die durch den Oktober 1917 geweckt wurden. Zweitens stehen die politischen Abwehrreaktionen und ideologischen Gegenentwurfe - insbesondere die Entstehung eines radikalen Antibolschewismus - im Fokus des Buches. Somit wird die Bedeutung der Oktoberrevolution fur die Veranderungen der politischen Machtverhaltnisse und fur das Aufkommen neuer weltanschaulicher Konkurrenzen im 20. Jahrhundert vermessen.

            In 1651 originated the policy which caused the American Revolution. That policy was one of taxation, indirect, it is true, but none the less taxation. The first Navigation Act required that colonial exports should be shipped to England in American or English vessels. This was fol...lowed by a long series of acts, regulating and restricting the American trade. Colonists were not allowed to exchange certain articles without paying duties thereon, and custom houses were established and officers appointed. Opposition to these proceedings was ineffectual; and in 1696, in order to expedite the business of taxation, and to establish a better method of ruling the colonies, a board was appointed, called the Lords...

            Nous avons trop complique l'etude du passe, en accordant une plus grande importance aux points de vue particuliers et aux interets nationalistes, religieux et moraux, qui placent le fait historique au second plan, subordonne a l'interet du systeme qui entend nous former.Le temps ...est venu de simplifier et de respecter nos ancetres, nous devons nous efforcer de savoir ce qui s'est reellement passe dans l'histoire, et pas seulement ce que le systeme pretend nous informer.Apres tant d'annees d'etude de l'Histoire, j'en suis venu a la conclusion que la meilleure facon de connaitre le passe est a travers une Chronologie impartiale et objective qui se limite a placer chaque evenement a sa place exacte dans le temps, revelant l'Histoire sans manipulation ni demi-verite.Cette chronologie constitue le materiel de reference le plus complet, non seulement avec des faits purement politiques, tels que la fondation des villes, la naissance des royaumes et des empires, les decouvertes scientifiques et geographiques, les catastrophes naturelles et les epidemies, mais aussi avec des informations sur les domaines les plus divers de l'activite humaine: chimie, astronomie, geographie, mathematiques, etc. En meme temps, la chronologie est completee par des informations qui n'appartiennent pas a une date exacte, mais a une epoque entiere, ce sont des generalites de chaque societe, des curiosites, des coutumes, la religion de chaque civilisation, des inventions sans date exacte, etc. Le resultat de tout cet ensemble est l'une des chronologies existantes les plus completes, periodiquement mise a jour avec les dernieres decouvertes archeologiques et scientifiques. Un ouvrage de cette ampleur n'a pas pu etre publie dans un seul livre, je l'ai donc divise en plusieurs collections, et les originaux en espagnol sont en cours de traduction en francais, anglais, italien, allemand et portugais. La chronologie va de la prehistoire a nos jours, annee apres annee, dans la mesure du possible.Pour ceux
