Download The Red Virgin And The Vision Of Utopia books, Chronicles the incredible and outrageous life of Louise Michel, the revolutionary feminist dubbed 'The Red Virgin of Montmarte.' Louise was an extraordinary women but is little known in the Anglophone world. A utopian dreamer, notorious anarchist, teacher, orator and poet, she was decades ahead of her time. Always a radical, she fought on the barricades defending the short=-lived Paris Commune of 1871 against the reactionary regime that massacred thousands of French citizens after the Commune's defeat. Deported to a penal colony on the other side of the world, she took up the cause of the indigenous population against French colonial oppression.
by Gregg Mitman, Future Remains Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Future Remains books, What can a pesticide pump, a jar full of sand, or an old calico print tell us about the Anthropocene—the age of humans? Just as paleontologists look to fossil remains to infer past conditions of life on earth, so might past and present-day objects offer clues to intertwined human and natural histories that shape our planetary futures. In this era of aggressive hydrocarbon extraction, extreme weather, and severe economic disparity, how might certain objects make visible the uneven interplay of economic, material, and social forces that shape relationships among human and nonhuman beings? Future Remains is a thoughtful and creative meditation on these questions. The fifteen objects gathered in this book resemble more the tarots of a fortuneteller than the archaeological finds of an expedition—they speak of planetary futures. Marco Armiero, Robert S. Emmett, and Gregg Mitman have assembled a cabinet of curiosities for the Anthropocene, bringing together a mix of lively essays, creatively chosen objects, and stunning photographs by acclaimed photographer Tim Flach. The result is a book that interrogates the origins, implications, and potential dangers of the Anthropocene and makes us wonder anew about what exactly human history is made of.
by Paul Thomas Chamberlin, The Global Offensive Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Global Offensive books, On March 21, 1968, Yasir Arafat and his guerrillas made the fateful decision to break with conventional guerrilla tactics, choosing to stand and fight an Israeli attack on the al-Karama refugee camp in Jordan. They suffered terrible casualties, but they won a stunning symbolic victory that transformed Arafat into an Arab hero and allowed him to launch a worldwide campaign, one that would reshape Cold War diplomacy and revolutionary movements everywhere. In The Global Offensive, historian Paul Thomas Chamberlin offers new insights into the rise of the Palestine Liberation Organization in its full international context. After defeat in the 1967 war, the crushing of a guerrilla campaign on the West Bank, and the attack on al-Karama, Arafat and his fellow guerilla fighters opened a global offensive aimed at achieving national liberation for the Palestinian people. In doing so, they reinvented themselves as players on the world stage, combining controversial armed attacks, diplomacy, and radical politics. They forged a network of nationalist revolutionaries, making alliances with South African rebels, Latin American insurrectionists, and Vietnamese Communists. They persuaded the United Nations to take up their agenda, and sent Americans and Soviets scrambling as these stateless forces drew new connections across the globe. "The Vietnamese and Palestinian people have much in common," General Vo Nguyen Giap would tell Arafat, "just like two people suffering from the same illness." Richard Nixon's views mirrored Giap's: "You cannot separate what happens to America in Vietnam from the Mideast or from Europe or any place else." Deftly argued and based on extensive new research, The Global Offensive will change the way we think of the history of not only the PLO, but also the Cold War and international relations since.
by Louise Welsh, Dunkelkammer Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Dunkelkammer books, Rilke ist Anfang 40, homosexuell und angestellt bei Bowery Auctions, einem Auktionshaus in Glasgow. Ein Herrenhaus, voll mit antiken Möbeln, wertvollen Teppichen und Kunstgegenständen, muss innerhalb einer Woche geräumt werden. Eine Bedingung ist mit diesem Auftrag verbunden: Das Arbeitszimmer des Verstorbenen muss von Rilke persönlich geräumt, der Inhalt restlos vernichtet werden. In diesem Raum entdeckt Rilke eine exquisite pornographische Bibliothek, seltene Erstausgaben, und alles in ihm sträubt sich gegen die Zerstörung. Schließlich stößt er auf eine Sammlung von brutalen und hochgradig verstörenden Fotos. Sind diese Fotos echt? Oder gestellt? Und welche Rolle spielte der Verstorbene? Rilke begibt sich auf die Suche, die ihn in die schäbigen Viertel Glasgows führt, in die Drogen- und Transvestitenszene, in ein internationales Netzwerk von Menschenhändlern.
