Erik Sjoberg Making of the Greek Genocide. Contested Memories Ottoman Catastrophe


During and after World War I, over one million Ottoman Greeks were expelled from Turkey, a watershed moment in Greek history that resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths. And while few dispute the expulsion's tragic scope, it remains the subject of fierce controversy, as activists have fought for international recognition of an atrocity they consider comparable to the Armenian genocide. This book provides a much-needed analysis of the Greek genocide as cultural trauma. Neither taking the genocide narrative for granted nor dismissing it outright, Erik Sjöberg instead recounts how it emerged as a meaningful but contested collective memory with both nationalist and cosmopolitan dimensions.

Chevalier de Bethune The World of Mercury


The World of Mercury was first published in 1750 before Voltaire's MicromÃgas (1752) or Tiphaigne's Amilec (1753). In developing his world, Béthune shaped one of the few "Creationist fantasies" entirely unaffected by religious dogma.His Mercury shines with originality, adventurousness and, especially, bizarrerie. The description of the aerial conflict between the defenders of Mercury's Great Mountain and the monstrous invaders from the "crust" expelled from the Sun is triumphantly eccentric, a match in its colorful extravagance for any space battle featured in the great tradition of 20th century space opera.

Nicolas Berdyaev, Nikolai Berdiaev, R. M. French Slavery and Freedom


Facsimile of 1943 Edition. In this work Berdyaev outlines his philosophical journey and describes the influences which brought him to his intellectual position. In his view, the only way of escape from the many forms of slavery--spiritual, economic, political--which shackle and impoverish the spirit lies in the fuller realization of personality, as he defines it. Berdyaev essentially embraced a religious view of man in the world and his work played a large part in the renaissance of religious and philosophical thought in Russian intellectual life early in the 20th century. In 1922 he and other intellectuals were expelled from the USSR. In the end he advocated for a “personal transvaluation of values.”

Grenardo David Why A Law Firm Partner Can Be Expelled For Following The Ethics Rules


In Bohatch v. Butler & Binion, the Texas Supreme Court held that a law firm partner needed to follow her ethical duty to report her partner's alleged overbilling, but the law firm could properly expel the reporting partner for doing so because, among other things, the trust and confidence needed for a partnership trumped any purported policy protecting a law firm whistleblower. And once she reported her fellow partner, that attorney lost the trust of the partnership. This Catch-22 troubles many because a partner can either follow the ethical rules and report a fellow partner, but potentially lose her job, or ignore the ethical rules by not reporting, but keep one's job. This work concludes that the court correctly decided Bohatch, but it presents a new framework to analyze this contentious situation. The analysis focuses on the attorney's decision-making process and free will to become a partner at a certain firm, as well as the freedom of contract to sign or revise a partnership agreement that does not protect an attorney who encounters this Catch-22 scenario. This work also provides some practical advice on how to choose one's partners wisely.

On visits to Scotland, 28 years after leaving Glasgow, Teddy Taylor is still greeted with cries of "I know who you are!" Despite being away for so long, he always seems to be recognised. Modest and self-effacing, he is remembered fondly by many across Scotland who could not support his politics, but admired and respected his commitment to his constituents, a philosophy he continued in Rochford and Southend until his retirement.Here is the man who climbed out of a graveyard with Enoch Powell, who asked Norman Tebbit not to tell people that he was a Conservative, who initiated contact with Libya during its period of isolation, who resigned from Ted Heath's government over the Treaty of Rome, and who, along with seven other M.Ps, was expelled from the Conservative Party for a period of time by John Major.This gentle autobiography of a schoolboy who fell into politics, then served forty one years of his working life as an M.P. in Scotland and England, will surprise and fascinate those who respect integrity and hard work. It must also intrigue young people who are thinking of following a political career.

William Bligh Mutiny on the Bounty


William Bligh (1754-1817) was an officer of the British Royal Navy and a colonial administrator eventually rising in rank to Vice Admiral. During his command of the "Bounty" in 1789, a notorious mutiny occurred. William Bligh and eighteen of his loyal seamen were expelled from the "Bounty" onto a small boat and began the greatest open-boat voyage in history, sailing some 4,000 miles to protection in Timor. The mutineers, led by Fletcher Christian, sailed off with the "Bounty" in other pursuits. "Mutiny on the Bounty" is a collection of early detailed documents of the voyage of the "Bounty". Largely in part to the effort of Bligh to maintain an accurate log before, during, and after the actual mutiny, even the Bounty's crew list is well chronicled. Bligh returned to Britain and reported the mutiny to the Admiralty two years and two and a half months after leaving England.

Lee Levin The Exodus Diary


Archaeologists have been shoveling and spading Egypt's earth for centuries. One would think nothing of major significance could possibly remain unearthed. Not so. A second-rate Egyptologist, from a third-rate university, on his last dig, unearths a miracle--the diary of the Pharaoh Ay, successor to Tutankhamen, written in his own hand. And what a tale he relates! He is the pharaoh of the Exodus, the man who confronted Moses. What he relates is the story of the Exodus itself as seen through the eyes of pharaoh himself.On the one hand, it confirms the historical accuracy of the Biblical account as presented in the Old Testament. But there is another side to the story. The story of pharaoh's dilemma. According to pharaoh's own testimony, Egypt faced a crisis. The population had grown, both of Egyptians and Hebrews. He was unable to feed the Egyptians, let alone Hebrew slaves. But the slaves were numerous, and if he could not feed them, they would certainly revolt. He wanted them gone. But much of Egypt's wealth was tied up in slaves. If he simply expelled them, the slaveowners would rebel.And then came Moses, with his demands. There was truth in the story of the Exodus as contained in the Bible. But pharaoh had his own truths too, and after 3,500 years, they are now revealed to the world.

His Afghan adventures culminate in a starring role in that great historic disaster, the Retreat from Kabul.
