Giants of the Monsoon Forest by Jacob Shell

Giants of the Monsoon Forest: Living and Working with Elephants by Jacob Shell
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 34.1 MB
Overview: A journey through the hidden world of elephants and their riders.

High in the mountainous rainforests of Burma and India grow some of the world’s last stands of mature, wild teak. For more than a thousand years, people here have worked with elephants to log these otherwise impassable forests and move people and goods (often illicitly) under cover of the forest canopy. In Giants of the Monsoon Forest, geographer Jacob Shell takes us deep into this strange elephant country to explore the lives of these extraordinarily intelligent creatures.

The relationship between elephant and rider is an intimate one that lasts for many decades. When an elephant is young, he or she is paired with a rider, who is called a mahout. The two might work together their entire lives. Though not bred to work with humans, these elephants can lift and carry logs, save people from mudslides, break logjams in raging rivers, and navigate dense mountain forests with passengers on their backs.

The Victorians: Twelve Titans Who Forged Britain by Jacob Rees-Mogg
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 659 MB
Overview: Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Victorians, written and read by Jacob Rees-Mogg.
They built a nation. Now it’s our turn.
Many associate the Victorian era with austere social attitudes and filthy factories. But in this bold and provocative book, Jacob Rees-Mogg – leading Tory MP and prominent Brexit advocate – takes up the story of 12 landmark figures to paint a very different picture of the age: one of bright ambition, bold self-belief and determined industriousness.
Whether through Peel’s commitment to building free trade, Palmerston’s deft diplomacy in international affairs, or Pugin’s uplifting architectural feats, the Victorians transformed the nation and established Britain as a preeminent global force.
Now, 200 years since the birth of Queen Victoria, it is essential that we remember the spirit, drive and values of the Victorians who forged modern Britain as we consider our future as a nation.

Nietzsche and Zion by Jacob Golomb

Nietzsche and Zion by Jacob Golomb
Requirements: .PDF reader, 21.9 MB
Overview: "Nietzsche’s ideas were widely disseminated among and appropriated by the first Hebrew Zionist writers and leaders. It seems quite appropriate, then, that the first Zionist Congress was held in Basle, where Nietzsche spent several years as a professor of classical philology. This coincidence gains profound significance when we see Nietzsche’s impact on the first Zionist leaders and writers in Europe as well as his presence in Palestine and, later, in the State of Israel."―from the IntroductionThe early Zionists were deeply concerned with the authenticity of the modern Jew qua person and with the content and direction of the reawakening Hebrew culture. Nietzsche too was propagating his highest ideal of a personal authenticity. Yet the affinities in their thought, and the formative impact of Nietzsche on the first leaders and writers of the Zionist movement, have attracted very little attention from intellectual historians. Indeed, the antisemitic uses to which Nietzsche’s thought was turned after his death have led most commentators to assume the philosopher’s antipathy to Jewish aspirations. Jacob Golomb proposes a Nietzsche whose sympathies overturn such preconceptions and details for the first time how Nietzsche’s philosophy inspired Zionist leaders, ideologues, and writers to create a modern Hebrew culture. Golomb cites Ahad Ha’am, Micha Josef Berdichevski, Martin Buber, Theodor Herzl, Max Nordau, and Hillel Zeitlin as examples of Zionists who "dared to look into Nietzsche’s abyss." This book tells us what they found.

Masters of the Middle Waters by Jacob F. Lee

Masters of the Middle Waters: Indian Nations and Colonial Ambitions along the Mississippi by Jacob F. Lee
Requirements: .PDF reader, 4.1 Mb
Overview: America’s waterways were once the superhighways of travel and communication. Cutting a central line across the landscape, with tributaries connecting the South to the Great Plains and the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River meant wealth, knowledge, and power for those who could master it. In this ambitious and elegantly written account of the conquest of the West, Jacob Lee offers a new understanding of early America based on the long history of warfare and resistance in the Mississippi River valley.

Lee traces the Native kinship ties that determined which nations rose and fell in the period before the Illinois became dominant. With a complex network of allies stretching from Lake Superior to Arkansas, the Illinois were at the height of their power in 1673 when the first French explorers―fur trader Louis Jolliet and Jesuit priest Jacques Marquette―made their way down the Mississippi. Over the next century, a succession of European empires claimed parts of the midcontinent, but they all faced the challenge of navigating Native alliances and social structures that had existed for centuries. When American settlers claimed the region in the early nineteenth century, they overturned 150 years of interaction between Indians and Europeans.

Masters of the Middle Waters shows that the Mississippi and its tributaries were never simply a backdrop to unfolding events. We cannot understand the trajectory of early America without taking into account the vast heartland and its waterways, which advanced and thwarted the aspirations of Native nations, European imperialists, and American settlers alike.

Reformation of the Senses by Jacob M. Baum

Reformation of the Senses: The Paradox of Religious Belief and Practice in Germany by Jacob M. Baum
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.9 MB
Overview: We see the Protestant Reformation as the dawn of an austere, intellectual Christianity that uprooted a ritualized religion steeped in stimulating the senses–and by extension the faith–of its flock. Historians continue to use the idea as a potent framing device in presenting not just the history of Christianity but the origins of European modernity.

Jacob M. Baum plumbs a wealth of primary source material from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries to offer the first systematic study of the senses within the religious landscape of the German Reformation. Concentrating on urban Protestants, Baum details the engagement of Lutheran and Calvinist thought with traditional ritual practices. His surprising discovery: Reformation-era Germans echoed and even amplified medieval sensory practices. Yet Protestant intellectuals simultaneously cultivated the idea that the senses had no place in true religion. Exploring this paradox, Baum illuminates the sensory experience of religion and daily life at a crucial historical crossroads.

Provocative and rich in new research, Reformation of the Senses reevaluates one of modern Christianity’s most enduring myths.

Erectile Dysfunction by Jacob and Michelle Clark

Erectile Dysfunction: What Worked For Us by Jacob and Michelle Clark
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 168 KB
Overview: FOREWARD BY BEST SELLING AUTHOR DARRELL MALONEY

Erectile dysfunction continues to be a very personal and very troubling crisis.
It shouldn’t be. For it’s as normal as any other medical condition.
We need to stop being stigmatized by a condition which occasionally strikes half of men over age forty. Seventy six percent of men over sixty.
The good news. most of us can be “fixed,” with a little tender loving care and patience from our spouses, and a willingness to be open and honest about our problem.
And. a willingness to try a variety of methods of dealing with ED until we find one that works.
That’s the whole premise behind this book.
We’ve been there. We went through all the emotions, the frustration, the anger, the humiliation. We could have just given up on our sex life as so many people resign themselves to do.
But we didn’t. Quite honestly, the “sex thing,” as we playfully started calling it long ago, was too big a part of our lives. We had too much fun doing it. Our sex life was wide-ranging and fun.
And it felt amazingly good.
It wasn’t something we wanted to give up.
So we spoke about it. and we decided to treat it as we had every other problem we’d faced in our marriage. We were going at it together, as a team, and we were going to fight it and win.
This book is about our journey, from the early days when ED decided to take away something near and dear to us, to the time we decided to fight back, and then the various things we did to combat it.
This book will be frank, and will occasionally use frank language and details. But it should be frank, because we’re dealing with a very serious matter.
This book will provide you the reader some insight. And perhaps some new ideas.
No one thing works for everyone. We all know that. But we’ll discuss the things that worked for us, with the hope you’ll be willing to try some of them yourselves.
We’re all different. The trick is to consider all the tools, and to find the tools which will work best for you. If you keep an open mind and are willing to try the things we’ll discuss, we’re confident we can help.
