This book explores the phenomenon of Independence Days. These rituals had complex meanings both in the territories concerned and in Britain as the imperial metropole, where they were extensively reported in the press. The text is concerned with the political management, associated rhetoric and iconography of these seminal celebrations. The focus is therefore very much on political culture in a broad sense, and changing perceptions and presentations over time. Highlights of the book include an overview by David Cannadine relating the topic to ornamentalism, invented tradition and transitions in British culture. Although the book is mainly concerned with the British Empire, Martin Shipway – a leading historian and cultural analyst of French decolonization – contributes an acute summary of how the same ‘moment’ was handled differently in the other great European empires. There are detailed and lively studies by noted specialists of the immediate coming of Independence to India/Pakistan, Malaya, Ghana, Zimbabwe, and Guyana. The book includes a thematic focus on the important role of representatives of the British monarchy in legitimating transfers of sovereignty at their point of climax. This book was published as a special issue of The Round Table.

FREEDOM..AT LAST chronicles the journey of an ordinary family of immigrants arriving to United States from Communist Romania. Held captive for than twenty-years by a dictatorship regime, the author discovered the benefits of freedom in his country of adoption, and walks boldly through plenty of experiences. The author wrote this book with the belief that the reader would voyage with him from the first day when he left his native country, sharing impressions compiled over the years of adventures, travels and observations. He cant pretend to be an ordinary person lucky enough to fulfill his dreams. In order to validate not only the travel experiences, but also the events that converged in their day to day life, the book touches the authors financial and social status evolution in America. It would encounter his struggles of making a living, successes and defeats, a tragedy, and many other events told with wit or sadness-as they happened. A typical biography would start from the first days of a persons life, yet this narrative began only when Border family arrived in the free world and ended thirteen years later, when their son Lt. lee border lost his life in the service of US Army. From now on, life will never be the same.

Sometimes a few dedicated heroes can turn a spark of change into a firestorm of rebellion. Such was the case during the Protestant Reformation, when courageous souls stood against oppression, changing the way we approach religion even today. In Freedom at Stake, men and women consumed with passion and dedication incite turmoil among traditional thinkers and established powers. They inspire change across Europe, from peasants and farmers to popes and kings. But as they bravely fan the flames, can they help but get burnt? Do their risks pay off, or do their actions consume them? In these fiery years, everything is at stake—freedom, liberty, and even life.

Was the twentieth century the most violent in history? Are religions or tyrants, capitalism or communism the cause of most human suffering? Has violence increased or decreased over the course of history? In this wholly original and remarkably ambitious work, 'Atrocitologist' Matthew White considers man's inhumanity to man across several thousand years of history. From the First Punic War and the collapse of Mayan rule, to the reign of Peter the Great and the cataclysmic events of the Second World War, White's epic book spans centuries and civilisations as it measures the hundred most violent events in human history. While sceptical of any grand theory for the causes of human violence, White does share three big lessons gleaned from his careful statistical analysis: one, chaos is more deadly than tyranny; two, the world is even more disorganised than we realise; and three, wars kill more civilians than soldiers (in fact, the army is usually the safest place to be). If we study history to avoid the mistakes of the past, then there can be no more important place to start than this eye-opening and entertaining book.
