Se vi povas legi ci tion, vi eble posedas la genon, kiu ebligas onin vampirigi. Mia nomo estas Fiera. Mi estas vampirino, kaj ci tio estas mia rakonto. Translation: If you can read this, you may possess the gene that enables one to become a vampire. My name is Fiera. I am a vampire, and this is my story. Fiera’s life has never been easy. Some days, just staying alive is tough. When she is rescued from prison by vampires, she thinks her circumstances are looking up. But there’s a problem. Even though the supreme commander of the International Federation of Vampires has made it perfectly clear that she’s not welcome in his underground world, that doesn’t mean she can leave. Fiera soon learns there are two kinds of vampires: legals and rogues. Legals have all the power, and as a result, the rogues suffer. They are expected to endure hate, inequality, and prejudice at the hands of legals—and after centuries of oppression, a nasty insurrection brews. War is imminent. Predestined to become the legendary fire goddess of the Elder’s prophecy, Fiera is told that her fate was sealed before birth. When she discovers that the one who has always loved her will die if she is made a vampire, Fiera is determined to change her future. Although published as fiction, Legacy of the Elder is the author’s true-life account of her personal induction into vampirehood. Informative, tragic, and funny, Fiera’s story explains and dispels the myths that haunt human folklore as it reveals the heart and soul of the lovable and despicable creatures we know as vampires.

Communism's rise and eventual fall in Eastern Europe is one of the great stories of the 20th century. Within this context, the Russian Revolution's role and legacy overshadows all else. In Was Revolution Inevitable?, former British Ambassador to Russia Sir Tony Brenton has gathered essays by leading historians to trace the events that led to the overthrow of the Tsarist regime and to pinpoint moments when those events could have unfolded in a drastically different way. What would the world be like had Fanny Kaplan succeeded in assassinating Vladimir Lenin in 1918? What if the Bolsheviks had never imposed the brutal "War Communism" initiatives that devastated the Russian peasants? What if Rasputin had talked Nicholas II out of involvement in World War One, which effectively led to the Revolution and sealed the demise of the Romanov dynasty? Preeminent scholars, including Orlando Figes, Richard Pipes, Douglas Smith, and Martin Sixsmith, ruminate on these questions and many others, assembling a series of pivotal moments that reveal what might have gone differently, and, if so, what the repercussions would have been. The contributors take a variety of approaches, from imagining an alternate history, to carefully studying a precarious moment of contingency, to disproving popular imagined alternatives. All of the chapters, however, shed light on Lenin's rise to power and the proliferation of his agenda, while assessing the influence of the revolution's pivotal moments on Russian-and global-politics. Provocative and illuminating, Was Revolution Inevitable? provides an in-depth exploration of the conflict that for nearly a century has shaped world history. The Russian Revolution put totalitarian communism into power, fueled Nazism and the Second World War, and forged one of the West's greatest antagonists. Here is a book that scrutinizes how the past, present, and future of global history could have been remarkably different had the events of 1917 unfolded differently and in the process deepens our understanding of what did happen and why.

Connecting The Dots In World History A Teacher S Literacy Based Curriculum

In his previously written articles and books, Chris Edwards has argued that Teaching should be considered a field that is separate from both the field of Education and from the content area fields. Teaching is a field which synthesizes content and method for classroom application. All of the other major intellectual fields have a canon of works which practitioners can learn from and add to, but Teaching does not. The Connecting-the-Dots in World History: A Teacher’s Literacy-Based Curriculum series changes this by showing how effective a teacher-generated curriculum can be. These books can inspire other teachers to create their own curriculums and inspire a change in the way that the public views teachers and teaching.
