Sumerians: The Land Of The Civilised Kings: Discover The Truth About – The Sumerians (Babylonia, Nibiru, Gilgamesh & Planet X) (Genesis, Assyrians, Ziggurat, Lexicon, Pantheon, Mesopotamia, Sumer)

by Jack Lindberg

You may have already heard of the Sumerians; they were a great civilisation which existed six thousand years ago in what is now known as Iraq. It was this civilisation which introduced many of the current concepts which humankind lives by; the most obvious example of this is time. The Sumerians were the first people to divide time into sixty seconds and sixty minutes.

They are also a civilisation which is shrouded in mystery. Although they are generally accepted as the foundation of modern civilisation, they appeared from nowhere and seemed to arrive at the peak of their development. The period after this seems to show that they held their power for thousands of years before a slow decline into obscurity. They developed their own language and are credited with being the first civilisation to record more than just events or trade details. Unfortunately this language remains a mystery today; despite numerous attempts it has not been possible to translate this language. The texts dating from this time period are recorded on tablets and are open to interpretation.

The Sumerians also seemed to have an impressive and unprecedented knowledge of the solar system; something that should have been impossible at this time. There are several theories which have been out forward to explain this knowledge but the one that has stuck best over the generations is that the Sumerians were either an alien race, or that the gods they worshipped were aliens and, in return for their labour, they provided them with the knowledge to build advanced civilisations. Certainly the general approach of the Sumerians is non-aggressive and focused on expanding the cultural and artistic horizons of the people.

This book looks at the history of the Sumerians and examines the main theories as to how they came into existence. It also takes a look at Planet X, commonly known as Nibiru. This is supposedly the missing planet in our solar system and has an orbit which lasts an impressive three thousand six hundred years! There are many more recent theories regarding this planet and the alien origins of the Sumerians. The alien link and conspiracy theories are also discussed and reviewed.

Finally, two important parts of the Sumerian story are Gilgamesh and Babylon; both of these are looked at in more detail and their claims assessed in conjunction with the other findings discovered and discussed in this book.

The ultimate decision regarding the Sumerians and their status in history is down to your own opinion; this book will help that decision to be a well informed one.



The Lion and The Bull: Electrum of Asia Minor (L&B library Book 2)

by Ivan Butkevych

Ancient coins are strikingly straightforward. They may seem to us simple and schematic, but this imagery is no testament to a primitivist craze at the time of their minting. A coin made during the Classical or the early Hellenistic period, depicting a deity or a hero, is a penetrating revelation of the intensity, the inspiration, and the tenacity with which an abstract notion of the Divine has created an image of Perfection impressed in metal. Today, thousands of years later, these coins still pulse with life, seemingly oblivious to the passage of time, as if harboring sparks of the immortal souls of their creators, who put all their faith and love into imprinting their being, as they understood and perceived it, on the tiny planchets.

L&B library books focuses on the first coins in world history, including the lion-headed Lydian trites and the famous Croeseid staters with opposing lion and bull protomes. In a study that revolves around the metrology of Lydian coins, the author strives to determine the precise ratios of history’s earliest electrum, gold, and silver coin issues. This includes an attempt to calculate the nominal weights of such coins in the measurement units of the traditional weight systems of their respective periods. This approach required using information from an extensive range of heterogeneous disciplines, which makes this book attractive for a wide range of readers interested in the history of coinage.



History of the Middle Ages

by Victor Duruy

From the fifth to the tenth century the Roman Empire crumbles away. The two invasions from the north and the south are accomplished. The new German Empire which Charlemagne attempts to organize is dissolved. We behold everywhere the destruction of the past and the transition to a new social and intellectual condition.
From the tenth to the fourteenth century feudalism has its rise. The crusades take place. The Pope and the Emperor contend for the world. The burgher class is reconstituted. This is the mediæval period, simple in its general outlines, which reaches its fullest flowering in the time of Saint Louis of France, with customs, institutions, arts and even a literature peculiar to itself.
In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries this feudal society descends into an abyss of misery. The decay seems that of approaching death. But death is the condition of life. If the Middle Ages vanish, it is to make way for Modern Times. A little charcoal, saltpetre and sulphur will restore equality on the battlefield, a prophecy of approaching social equality, either under royal omnipotence or under the protection of public liberties. Hence power changes its place. No longer the monopoly of the man of arms or of the noble, it passes first to the kings as later on it will pass to the people. Thought becomes secularized and quits the cloister. The genius of ancient civilization is about to spring forth. Already artists and writers are on the road of the Renaissance, as the Portuguese are on that of the Cape of Good Hope. Audacious voices are heard arguing about obedience and even about faith. The Middle Ages have indeed come to an end since things are becoming new.
But did the Middle Ages wholly die? They bequeathed to Modern Times virile maxims of public and individual rights, which then’ profited only the lords, but which now profit all. The Middle Ages developed chivalrous ideas, a sentiment of honor, a respect for woman, which still stamp with a peculiar seal those who preserve and practise them. Lastly, mediæval architecture remains the most imposing material manifestation of the religious sentiment, an architecture we can only copy when we wish to erect the fittest houses of prayer.



History of Portugal

by H. Morse Stephens

THE Story of Portugal possesses a peculiar interest from the fact that it is to its history alone that the country owes its existence as a separate nation Geographically, the little kingdom is an integral portion of the Iberian peninsula, with no natural boundaries to distinguish it from that larger portion of the peninsula called Spain; its inhabitants spring from the same stock as the Spaniards, and their language differs but slightly from the Spanish. Its early history is merged in that of the rest of the peninsula, and but for two great men, Affonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal, and John I., the founder of the house of Aviz, Portugal would not at the present day rank among the independent nations of Europe. The first of these monarchs created his dominions into a kingdom like Leon, Castile, and Aragon, and the latter encouraged the maritime explorations which gave the little country an individuality and national existence, of which it was justly proud. When Philip II. annexed Portugal in 1580, it was at least a century too late for the Portuguese to coalesce with the Spaniards. They had then produced Vasco da Gama and Alboquerque and other great captains and explorers, who had shown Europe the way to India by sea; and their tongue had been developed by the genius of Camoens and Sá de Miranda, from a Romance dialect, similar to those used in Gallicia, Castile, or Aragon, into a great literary language. Conscious of its national history, Portugal broke away again from Spain in 1640, and under the protection of England maintained its separate existence during the eighteenth century�



Democracy in America

by Alexis de Tocqueville

Democracy in America has had the singular honor of being even to this day the work that political commentators of every stripe refer to when they seek to draw large conclusions about the society of the USA. Alexis de Tocqueville, a young French aristocrat, came to the young nation to investigate the functioning of American democracy & the social, political & economic life of its citizens, publishing his observations in 1835 & 1840. Brilliantly written, vividly illustrated with vignettes & portraits, Democracy in America is far more than a trenchant analysis of one society at a particular point in time. What will most intrigue modern readers is how many of the observations still hold true: on the mixed advantages of a free press, the strained relations among the races & the threats posed to democracies by consumerism & corruption. So uncanny is Tocqueville’s insight & so accurate are his predictions, that it seems as tho he were not merely describing the American identity but actually helping to create it.

The Dawn of Mexico

by Reginald Enock

Like the misty cloud-streaks of the early dawn, the beginning of the story of the strange empire of prehistoric Mexico unfolds from fable and fact as we look back upon it. We are to imagine ourselves upon the shores of Lake Texcoco, in the high valley-plateau of Anahuac, “the land amid the waters.” It is the year 1300, or a little later, of the Christian era. The borders of the lake are marshy and sedgy, the surrounding plain is bare and open, and there is no vestige of man and his habitation. Far away, east, west, and north, faint mountain ranges rise, shimmering to the view in the sun’s rays through the clear upland air, whilst to the south two beautiful gleaming snow-capped peaks are seen, and over all is the deep blue vault of the tropic highland sky.
We have said that there are no vestiges of man or his structures to be seen, yet upon gazing penetratingly towards the north-east there might be observed the tops of two high ruined pyramids, the vestiges of the civilisation of the shadowy Toltecs. But we are not for the moment concerned with these ruined structures, for, as we watch, a band of dusky warriors, strangely clad, comes over the plain. They come like men on some set purpose, glancing about them, at the shores of the lake, at the horizon, expectantly, yet with a certain vague wistfulness as of deferred hope. Suddenly their leader halts and utters an ejaculation; and with one hand shading the sun’s rays from his eyes he points with outstretched arm towards the water’s edge. His companions gaze intently in the direction indicated, and then run forward with joyous shouts and gesticulations. What is it that has aroused their emotions? Near the lake-shore a rock arises, overgrown with a thorny nopal, or prickly-pear cactus, and perched upon this is an eagle with a serpent in its beak.
Who are these men and whence have they come? They are the first Aztecs, and they have come “from the north”; and for centuries they have been wandering from place to place, seeking a promised land which their deity had offered them, a land where they should found a city and an empire. The hoped-for oracle is before them, the promised symbol which they had been bidden to seek, by which they should know the destined spotâ??an eagle perched upon a nopal with a serpent in its beak: and their wanderings are at an end. Here they pitched their camp, and here as time went on the wonderful city of Tenochtitlan arose, the centre of the strange Aztec civilisation. Thus, fable records, was first established the site of Mexico City; prehistoric, despotic, barbaric, first; mediæval, dark, romantic, later; handsome and interesting to-day.



The Conquests of Pizarro

by George Towle

In the early morning of a warm autumn day, not quite four hundred years ago, three lads, varying in age from thirteen to fifteen, were hurriedly climbing a rough and precipitous mountain road in Central Spain. Every now and then, as they mounted higher, they would look anxiously back to see if they were followed; and, finding they were not, they continued their ascent with brisker steps and more cheerful countenances. Once in a while they came to a spot where an opening in the dense and luxuriant forest exposed to their view the broad plain, still veiled by a soft morning haze, which they had left a few hours before. Here they would stop, and strain their eyes in the direction they had come, as if to discern any pursuing figures who might appear in the road far below, which, so high were they above it, seemed like a narrow yellow thread winding amid the expanse of green.
They were stalwart, dark-featured youths, with stout sinews and sturdy limbs, and serious, resolute faces; wearing the same rude apparel, which consisted of a coarse shirt, a loose jacket, short wide breeches fastened at the knees, rude sandals on their feet, and large, coarsely-woven woolen caps on their heads. Each carried a bundle on a stick, which he swung across his shoulder. As they pressed upward, they spoke but little: they not only wished to save their breath for the long tramp before them, but their thoughts were so deeply absorbed in their serious situation, that they were not disposed to be talkative.
At last they reached a steep and rugged cliff, the summit of which was almost bare, and from which, over the tops of the thick forest, they could clearly see the plain stretched out for miles till it faded near the misty horizon. They were tired and hungry; and, despite the danger of pursuit, they resolved to rest a while on this convenient crag. Throwing down their bundles, and lying upon the patches of moss which here and there covered the rock, they proceeded to discuss such a breakfast as their resources permitted. They took from their bundles some coarse bread and raw onions, a few bunches of grapes which they had picked by the road, and some chestnuts; and these homely viands were quickly disposed of. Then one of them produced a small can, and, running to a mountain brook which leaped madly over a little chasm nearby, filled it with deliciously cold water, and brought it to his companions, who drank of it eagerly. Refreshed by their simple morning meal, the three lads, lying at full length on the patches of moss, turned their faces instinctively towards the plain, and pointed out to each other the spots familiar to them all.

by Lady Aingealicia

The Engagement

Victoria could not remember a day that she had not already been promised to a man who lived thousands of miles away. She had tried to avoid this day her whole life. She had begged, pleaded and finally threatened to go into a convent rather than marry a man she did not know and did not want to know. Even with the whole estate around her with life, she did not share the same sentiment. As the days got closer to her wedding day, she went to extreme lengths to avoid this preplanned life that had been mapped out by her parents. Even to the point of escaping at any cost, only to be caught in the end.

This is a romantic collection of short stories

Brexit: A Sound Decision: Nine Weeks Later The Reasons To Leave Look Even Better

by Andrew Mather

The sky hasn’t fallen, experts are having to revise their prognostications, countries are queuing up to manage trade negotiations with Britain, and May, a Remainer, nevertheless seems determined to honour the vote.

Emotions have subsided somewhat, though Remain still threaten to derail the result with an MP rebellion, or legal challenge. Sturgeon continues to do everything possible to cause strife and consternation.

It is by no means assured that we will get the clear break that Leave voters would like to see. It may indeed take years to unravel our ties with the EU, and to rework them into something more suitable to a sovereign nation dealing with a politicial superstate.

The issues remain, and we revisit them to provide a perhaps tidier, better organised summary than in the original Brexit: Why We Won, which was written in a hurry for good reason. Remain were up in arms.

Many still are, so it’s still worth understanding the issues, and the sound reasons for our vote.

A Country Dies

by Renier Artens

A young man returns to Rhodesia to experience the horrors and tribulations of a country at war with itself. Communist-trained and inspired terrorists, enabled by global politics of expediency, are relentless in their determination to overthrow colonial rule. The first victim is innocence; the last is the dream of an entire nation whose people simply wished to build their heritage and to live in peace.

As a Ministry of Information Press Officer in Ian Smith’s government Bill DeVries is a non-combatant in Rhodesia’s Bush War. But like all Rhodesians he endures a deep sense of loss, betrayal and anger as the security of his cherished homeland is violated and steadily eroded.

In time he finds love and summons up the courage to challenge new horizons, to start a new life in a country far removed from the land of his youth. But first he must come to terms with the inevitability of change and personal sacrifice while knowing that those left behind, or who choose to stay, will become hostages to the unfolding human tragedy since 1980 that so completely describes Zimbabwe today.



The Wandering King (Book 2: With This Shield)

by Stephen Marte

Euryanax is encamped with his father Dorieus’ army in Italy. While sleeping outside the walls of Taras, they are attacked by indigenous tribesmen called Messapians. The Italians charge the camp on horseback, barking like dogs, throwing javelins and pelting the Spartan shieldwall with arrows and sling stones.

The cavalry attack is only a feint meant to draw the Spartans’ attention. While the army repels the invaders, a lone man sneaks into the tent of Dorieus’ mistress, the beautiful hetaera Stesilaus and carries her off to the mysterious city of Sybaris.

In the ancient world, Sybaris was synonymous with wealth, debauchery and impiety. The Sybarites are ruled by the tyrant Telys, who is intent on conquering all of southern Italy, including its neighboring city of Croton, home of the philosopher Pythagoras and his peaceful followers, the Cenobites.

Will Dorieus’ army become embroiled in the war between Sybaris and Croton, a struggle the Greeks considered akin to the Biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorrah? Or will the Spartans continue on to Sicily, where they intend on building a colony on Mount Eryx and resuming Dorieus’ private war against the Persian Empire?

Wander with Euryanax as his adventures lead him to the cities of Taras, Croton and Sybaris in Italy, and Heraklea, Motya and Selenius in Sicily. Then sail with him across the wine-dark sea to Attica, where Athens is attempting to overthrow its own tyrant, Hippias.

Stand with Eury as he battles tyrants, mercenaries, barbarians and the powers of the East. Listen to the wisdom of Pythagoras, the schemes of the wily, lawyer Themistocles and the speeches of the future â??father of democracy,’ Cleisthenes. As you do, you’ll watch Euryanax learn that becoming a Spartan King, means a lot more than leading soldiers to victory.
