Humans: A Brief History of How We F*cked It All Up by Tom Phillips
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 183 MB
Overview: An exhilarating history of humankind, chronicling thousands of years of trial and error – but mostly error – in the rise of civilization.
Modern humans have come a long way in the 70,000 years they’ve walked the earth. Art, science, culture, trade – on the evolutionary food chain, we’re true winners. But it hasn’t always been smooth sailing, and sometimes – just occasionally – we’ve managed to truly f*ck things up.
Weaving together history, science, politics, and pop culture, Humans offers a panoramic exploration of humankind in all its glory, or lack thereof. From Lucy, our first ancestor, who fell out of a tree and died, to General Zhou Shou of China, who stored gunpowder in his palace before a lantern festival, to the Austrian army that attacked itself one drunken night, to the most spectacular fails of the present day, Humans reveals how even the most mundane mistakes can shift the course of civilization as we know it.
Lively, wry, and brimming with brilliant insight, this unique compendium offers a fresh take on world history and is one of the most entertaining listens of the year.

The Anti-Humans by Dumitru Bacu

The Anti-Humans: Student Re-education in Romanian Prisons by Dumitru Bacu
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 240 KB
Overview: The story of Communism in Romania may not be a unique one. Foreigners became policy makers. Peasants starved. Prisons swelled. Slave labor killed hundreds of thousands. And lastly, the indigenous intellectual class was suppressed. What is unique about what happened in Romania is how the intellectual class was suppressed. Rather than simple suppression through imprisonment and discouraging political activity, the intellectual class in Romania was subjected to sadistic experimentation in what has been dubbed “re-education experiments.”

Dumitru Bacu was first arrested in 1949 for holding opinions inimical to Bolshevism. He had been part of an anti-Communist organization during WWII when he was a university student at Bucharest. Though he was a student, Bacu was not put through experimentation, but he did take it upon himself to learn what he could about it during his 11-year sentence. (First released by a Spanish publisher in 1963, translated and published in English in 1971.)
