The Life of Charles the Great

by Thomas Hodgkin

In the gradual transformation of the old world of classical antiquity into the world with which the statesmen of today must deal, no man played a greater part than Charles the Great, King of the Franks and Emperor of Rome. The sharp lines of demarcation which we often draw between period and period, and which are useful as helps to memory, have not for the most part had any real existence in history, for in the world of men, as in the development of the material universe, it is true that uniformity rather than cataclysm is the rule: Naturanon vadit per saltum. Still there are some great landmarks, such as the foundation of Constantinople, Alaric’s capture of Rome, the Hegira of Mohammed, the discovery of America, the Reformation and the French Revolution, which have no merely artificial existence. We can see that the thoughts of the great majority of civilized men were suddenly forced into a different channel by such events, that after they had occurred, men hoped for other benefits and feared other dangers than they had looked for before these events took place. And such a changeful moment in the history of the world was undoubtedly the life of the great ruler who is generally spoken of as Charlemagne, and preeminently the year 800, when he was crowned as Emperor at Rome…

Is Jihad a Holy war or a War of terrorism?

by Ben Adams

This book takes an indepth look at the fighting and the wars fought by Moslems throughout the years in order to find out if it truly is holy wars that they are fighting or acts of terrorism. We examine in detail all of the facts present in history as well as their books in order to undoubtably show the truth of what they call Jihad or holy war. You will find this very eye-opening. This book does as no other book today or perhaps ever has in such a very simple and very clear way exposing what many people don’t know, many people don’t want to accept, and what many people try to hide about the Moslems and Mohammed. It took lots of time and great effort to compile the information in this book, but I think it was well worth it because ignorance is very dangerous, especially in our times. You cannot successfully fight an ememy until you first know who he is and also know him very well. Even I was very surprised with much of the information that I found during my research. Enjoy the book and spread this truth, so that we can change the world for the better! The violence and killing in the world has to stop! Our futures and the future of our children are at stake! Evil is allowed to exist and to grow only when you don’t know its real source! Ignorance will have us killing our best helpers and protecting our worse enemies!
