The Unknown Universe by Stuart Clark (.M4B)

The Unknown Universe: A New Exploration of Time, Space and Cosmology by Stuart Clark
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 223 MB
Overview: A groundbreaking guide to the universe and how our latest deep-space discoveries are forcing us to revisit what we know – and what we don’t.
On March 21, 2013, the European Space Agency released a map of the afterglow of the big bang. Taking in 440 sextillion kilometers of space and 13.8 billion years of time, it is physically impossible to make a better map: We will never see the early universe in more detail. On the one hand, such a view is the apotheosis of modern cosmology; on the other, it threatens to undermine almost everything we hold cosmologically sacrosanct. The map contains anomalies that challenge our understanding of the universe. It will force us to revisit what is known and what is unknown, to construct a new model of our universe.
This is the first book to address what will be an epoch-defining scientific paradigm shift. Stuart Clark will ask if Newton’s famous laws of gravity need to be rewritten, if dark matter and dark energy are just celestial phantoms. Can we ever know what happened before the big bang? What’s at the bottom of a black hole? Are there universes beyond our own? Does time exist? Are the once immutable laws of physics changing?

Dictionary of British Philosophers by Stuart Brown

Dictionary of Twentieth-Century British Philosophers by Stuart Brown
Requirements: .PDF reader, 36,7 Mb
Overview: This is a work with entries on individuals who made some contribution to philosophy in the period 1900 to 1960 or soon after. The entries deal with the whole philosophical work of an individual or, in the case of philosophers still living, their whole work to date. Typically the individuals included have been born by1935 and by now have made their main contributions. Contributions to the subject typically take the form of books or journal articles, but influential teachers and people otherwise important in the world of philosophy may also be included. The dictionary includes amateurs as well as professional philosophers and, where appropriate, thinkers whose main discipline was outside philosophy.There are special problems about the term "British" in the twentieth century, partly because of human migration, partly because of de-colonialization and the changing denotation of the term. The intention has been to include not only those who were British subjects at least for a significant part of their lives (even if they mostly lived outside what is now the U.K.) but also people who spent a significant part of their lives in Britain itself, irrespective of their nationality or country of origin. In the first category are included, for instance, a number of people who were born and educated in Britain but who subsequently taught in universities abroad.In the second category are included those who were born elsewhere but who came to Britain and contributed to its philosophical culture.

His journal made such an outstanding contribution to ornithology, ichthyology, botany, and geology that much of modern Arctic research is founded upon his observations. Enhanced by fifty-six line drawings and eight maps, Arctic Ordeal will interest a wide audience as well as medical historians, geographers, anthropologists, and botanists.

Scandal and Religious Identity in Stuart England by Peter Lake

Scandal and Religious Identity in Early Stuart England: A Northamptonshire Maid’s Tragedy (Studies in Modern British Religious History) by Peter Lake , Isaac Stephens
Requirements: .PDF reader, 3.4 MB
Overview: This book starts with an extraordinary event and document. The event is the trial and execution for infanticide of a puritan minister, John Barker, along with his wife’s niece and their maid, in Northampton in 1637; the document, what appears to be a virtual transcript of Barker’s last speech on the gallows. His downfall soon became polemical fodder in scribal publications, with Puritans circulating defences of Barker and anti-Calvinists producing a Laudian condemnation of the minister. Scandal and Religious Identity in Early Stuart England uses Barker’s crime and fate as a window on the religious world of early modern England. It is based upon an extraordinary deposit of manuscript and printed sources, all produced between 1637 and 1640 by people living in close proximity to one another and all of whom knew one another, either as friends or more often as enemies. Marshalling evidence from public polemical sources and from almost entirely private ones – a diary, private letters and a spiritual autobiography – the book is able to examine the same events and persons, and beliefs and practices, from multiple perspectives: the micro and the macro, the personal and the political, and the affective and the doctrinal. Throughout, we meet a range of very different people putting various bodies of religious theory into practice, connecting the most local and particular of events and rivalries to the great issues of the day and responding, in certain cases, to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and the temptations of the devil. This approach enables a whole series of generalisations to be explored: about the relation between politics and religion, devotion and polemic, puritans and their enemies, local and national affairs; between rumour, manuscript and print; and, finally, about gender hierarchy and the social roles of men and women. The result is an extraordinarily detailed and intimate portrait of the religio- political scene in an English county on the eve of civil war. PETER LAKE is Distinguished University Professor of early modern English history at Vanderbilt. He is the author of several studies of English religion, culture and politics in the Elizabethan and early Stuart periods. ISAAC STEPHENS is Assistant Professor of History at Saginaw Valley State University and has published on early modern marriage, religion, and life-writing.

Pizarro: Conqueror of the Inca by Stuart Stirling

Pizarro: Conqueror of the Inca by Stuart Stirling
Necessities: .ePUB reader, 5.1MB
Overview: Francisco Pizarro is presumably probably the greatest identified however least understood figures of world historical past. In 1530, on the age of fifty-four, he set out on his profitable and bloody conquest of Peru, thus altering the way forward for a continent and its peoples ceaselessly.

It was a good distance from his humble beginnings as an illiterate, illegitimate pig-herder. Inside these pages Stuart Stirling tells the story of adversity and tragedy which was the lifetime of Francisco Pizarro. By the requirements of the time, Pizarro was an aged man when he conquered Peru. He had served as a foot soldier in Spain’s Italian wars and later earned a dwelling as an Indian fighter and slaver. Audacious, ruthless and merciless, Pizarro had a stunning and nearly fatalistic perception within the Indies as an escape from his illegitimacy. Luck additionally performed a serious half in his invasion of Peru – Pizarro’s 200 males shouldn’t have been capable of defeat the indigenous military of greater than 30,000, however they did. Nevertheless, the Spanish conquest noticed few blissful endings, even for Pizarro, who was now wealthy past his wildest goals. Eleven years after the conquest, he was assassinated by his one-time Spanish allies.

Stuart Stirling’s researches within the Archives of the Indies in Seville allow him to current an correct portrait of Pizarro as a person of his time, and to position even his most notorious act – the killing of the Inca king Atahualpa – inside context. This e-book brings the person to life towards a turbulent background of exploration, discovery, empire constructing and a conflict of cultures.
