The year is 20XX. Earth’s advancement in technology has allowed it to expand to the far reaches of space. Humans have moved to the many ‘colonies’ surrounding it. New species and races have appeared. New energy sources have been found reducing the value of fossil fuels. It was supposed to be a time of peace, but chaos loomed in the faces of many. The world was in the midst of a tremendous crisis. The appearance of new superpower nations had caused an outbreak of war that spanned 20 years. These new countries and its allies were know and feared as “The Order’. They were ruthless and wanted to control the world’s energy supplies, destroying any nation that stood in their way. But all was not lost. The remaining countries banded together to stop The Order.

Over the course of history, many wars have changed the political and cultural landscape of our world. While these events are defined by their upheaval and violence, they frequently contribute to the formation of the identity of entire generations or groups of people, and thus have significant cultural effects. Despite the physical and emotional destruction that occurs during these turbulent periods, they have inspired prolific artistic creation. In the wake of traumatic events over the centuries, a myriad of artists have produced works that immortalise the most dramatic moments of these wars in order to establish them in history forever. This book presents beautiful images depicting famous battles and war scenes, accompanied by the iconic text of the legendary Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu, as well as texts documenting notable moments of different wars, each written by well-known writers. From Uccello’s The Battle of San Romano to Picasso’s Guernica, this work offers a captivating look at artworks inspired by war and what they reveal about humanity’s history.

Renaissance Syntax and Subjectivity

Ideological Contents of Latin and the Vernacular in Scottish Prose Chronicles

John Leeds examines the choice made by Renaissance chroniclers between Latin and the vernacular, in light of some central concerns of current literary theory. He extends the boundaries of existing critical literature on early modern subjectivity to include the grammatical subject, showing how its disposition, in the radically dissimilar syntactic systems of Latin and Scots, conditions the way in which the subject (i.e., the human individual) is conceived in the writing of history.

The 1990s was the decade when Marvel Comics sold 8.1 million copies of an issue of the X-Men, saw its superstar creators form their own company, cloned Spider-Man, and went bankrupt. The 1990s was when Superman died, Batman had his back broken, and the runaway success of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman led to DC Comics’ Vertigo line of adult comic books. It was the decade of gimmicky covers, skimpy costumes, and mega-crossovers. But most of all, the 1990s was the decade when companies like Image, Valiant and Malibu published million-selling comic books before the industry experienced a shocking and rapid collapse. American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1990s is a year-by-year account of the comic book industry during the Bill Clinton years. This full-color hardcover volume documents the comic book industry’s most significant publications, most notable creators, and most impactful trends from that decade. Written by Keith Dallas and Jason Sacks.

With the emphasis firmly on Richard's monarchy rather than on his personal life, Gillingham's history aims to explain why the Lionheart's reputation has fluctuated more than that of any other monarch. The study places Richard in Europe, the Mediterranean and Palestine and demonstrates that few rulers had more enemies or more influence. The paperback edition includes an updated bibliography.

George Wingfield

Owner and Operator of Nevada

George Wingfield was a major figure in Nevada history in the early decades of the twentieth century, and his legacy is felt throughout the state even today. A political and economic titan, he made a fortune in the gold fields of central Nevada and promptly bought a chain of banks and several hotels. Wingfield was a Republican party leader who was also influential among Democrats. His power was legendary and prevailing, as demonstrated by the nearly universal belief that he ran a bipartisan political machine. For a number of years Wingfield was described, without exaggeration, as the owner and operator of the state of Nevada. Some have revered him as Nevada's benevolent "friend." Others have condemned him as a "sagebrush caesar," a man who politically dominated the state "as arbitrarily as the czar ruled Russia." Elizabeth Raymond's biography depicts the man and his times, from his humble birth in Arkansas in 1876 until his death in Reno in 1959. Wingfield became a significant power in Nevada partly because he remained in the state with all of his money instead of leaving as other millionaires had done. His authority became increasingly contentious as his political activities gradually reshaped the state to coincide with his personal tastes and economic interests. His investments gave him national prominence and tremendous influence in a sparsely populated state, where an economic reliance on divorce and gambling was controversial. Ultimately, both political opponents and outside observers came to resent Wingfield's control. By the 1930s, when his banks collapsed, Wingfield was so bitterly resented that all attempts to reorganize and reopen them failed. In 1935, defeated and shorn of political power, Wingfield declared personal bankruptcy. Although a second fabulous gold mine brought him another fortune, he never recovered the political dominance he enjoyed at the height of his career in the 1920s. When Wingfield died in 1959, he had the satisfaction of witnessing the flourishing tourism-based economy he had worked so hard to promote.
