Elizabeth II is a model of feminine excellence and an example for young people who may not be born to royal families, but who should consider themselves as princesses and princes of the family to which they have been born. Like Elizabeth, who even as a child knew the significance of the role into which she had been born and started training for the future task, young people should prepare for their future by acquiring training early in their life. Like Elizabeth, who married the first man she fell in love with, young women should insist on marrying the first man they fall in love with, to preserve and protect their womanhood and honour. Finally, Elizabeth trained as a car mechanic and driver, despite her wealthy royal background. How many women have the courage today to train in skills which society considers a man's domain? The Queen of England recommends training to young people with this remark: "It's all to do with the training: you can do a lot if you are properly trained." In this era when the monarchy is considered to be an outdated institution, the British Royal Family has made it known that they will step aside when the British people will ask them to do so. What makes the British monarchy different from other royals in the world? What, in the 1870s, might have motivated the pre-colonial Kings of Douala on the coast of today's Cameroon to apply to Queen Victoria, the great-grandmother of Queen Elizabeth II, to colonise them? Unity Elias Yang is also the author of: - The Third World, where is it? - A Global State through Democratic Federal World Government - Your Baby's long journey to school - Little Anita visits the Bank - Children and Citizenship levels 1-6 - Women and Children's Chamber of Parliament: democratising representation.

The year is 1030 AD. Prince Harald of Norway is rescued from the battlefield where his half-brother, King Olaf, lies dead. Reunited with loyal comrades, he leads them in three longships to Novgorod in Rusland, then to Kiev. Under the patronage of Prince Jaroslief he establishes his reputation as warrior. Three years later, he travels to Constantinople, capital of the Byzantine Empire. As mercenaries in the Varangian Guard, he and his men prove their worth: a campaign against pirates, the siege of Edessa, a mission to the Holy Land, an invasion of Bulgaria. They become the elite contingent of the emperor's armed forces: forays in the Adriatic Sea and North Africa, then in the battle for Sicily against Moslem forces where his cavalry guarantees victory. Back in Constantinople, he receives one of the highest imperial honors. Despite another Bulgarian war, he becomes embroiled in the intrigues to replace the dying emperor with a dangerous successor. Having achieved his goal of amassing wealth and fame, he feels obligated to stay until the crisis is resolved. He is instrumental in saving the throne for the legitimate dynasty. This epic of action and romance of a real Norse hero ends in 1042 AD.

Kate Miller may be the last great American housewife left in Van Nuys. But as she sails toward forty on a wave of a pretty good (albeit somewhat boring) life with her husband and two kids, the death of her dysfunctional mother sends Kate out on a ledge and straight up a tree. Surveying her life from atop an endangered tree near the Fashion Square Plaza Mall, Kate learns more than how to fight for a cause. She learns how one frightened woman can actually discover her true self, one branch at a time and right down the street from her own backyard.

The Last Great Dance on Earth is the triumphant final volume of Sandra Gulland's beloved trilogy based on the life of Josephine Bonaparte. When the novel opens, Josephine and Napoleon have been married for four tumultuous years. Napoleon is Josephine's great love, and she his. But their passionate union is troubled from within, as Josephine is unable to produce an heir, and from without, as England makes war against France and Napoleon's Corsican clan makes war against his wife. Through Josephine's heartfelt diary entries, we witness the personal betrayals and political intrigues that will finally drive them apart, culminating in Josephine's greatest tragedy: her divorce from Napoleon and his exile to Elba. The Last Great Dance on Earth is historical fiction on a grand scale and the stirring conclusion to an unforgettable love story.

In the shadowy recesses of time, in the constellation of Orion, a civilization of extraordinary richness emerged to take its place among the stars. And as this civilization became ever newer and more amazing, the biological creatures from its beginnings began to fade from memory. Resolved to record and document the process of biological evolution that had formed their own world, these creatures from beyond our imagination found a place similar to their own distant past. The place they found was earth ... our earth ... and for over 300 million years, they documented and recorded the horrific splendor of the "survival of the fittest" that went before us until... Twenty five hundred years ago, at the nexus of the Greek and Roman worlds, these "visitors", perhaps out of boredom, perhaps for reasons no one may ever fully understand, created a virtual reality world of extraordinary beauty. They called this world Elysium and they populated it with Amazons, Romans and tools to make amazing lands. To its creators it was just another clever amusement, now long forgotten, but to the inhabitants of Elysium their world was very real and they plotted and schemed in the time-honored tradition of our kind. Collectors on earth sent them people to populate their lands and to keep them informed of earths changing technology. Great recursion zones were erected to separate the lands of Vallis Luna ruled by a regal Amazon Queen from those of New Rome controlled by an all-powerful Emperor. Wars raged, amazing lands were built (including some from earth's fictional tales) until... In a hospital in Tarzana at the dawn of the 21st century, a new story begins to unfold. There a precocious 10-year old lies dying. And there, for the first time in his life, Gregory Tulliver, a playboy doctor, truly connects with a patient. That patient is the extraordinary Erica O'Shea. Little does he know that he is connected to the Boticelli Erica in ways he could never imagine. And little does he know that in a few days the cosmic tumblers are about to line him up and take him on a journey that will change his life forever. Awaiting him in a strange new land are the beautiful Diana Lucifera - High Priestess of the Temple of Artemis, Livia - Queen of the Valley of the Moon (where all men are slaves) and the builder-made Knot Monday, Consul to Braccus, King of the Thousand Lands of New Rome. And waiting to play a part in the life of young Erica O'Shea and Dr. Gregory Tulliver are collected immortals from earths past.... Emily Dickinson, Jackie Robinson, Lewis Carol, Stonewall Jackson, Frank Baum, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and a cast of thousands. And waiting to take someone to the land of eternal damnation (that all on Elysium fear) is ... the Last Train to Coaltown. Book I of the New and Amazing series awaits you.

Sir John Seeley once wrote that the British Empire was acquired in "a fit of absence of mind." Whatever the truth of this comment, it is certainly arguable that the Empire was dismantled in such a fit. This collection deals with a neglected subject in post-Confederation Canadian history - the implications to Canada and Canadians of British decolonization and the end of empire. Canada and the End of Empire looks at Canadian diplomatic relations with the United Kingdom and the United States, the Suez crisis, the changing economic relationship with Great Britain in the 1950s and 1960s, the role of educational and cultural institutions in maintaining the British connection, the royal tour of 1959, the decision to adopt a new flag in 1964, the efforts to find a formula for repatriating the constitution, the Canadianization of the Royal Canadian Navy, and the attitude of First Nations to the changed nature of the Anglo-Canadian relationship. Historians in Commonwealth countries tend to view the end of British rule from a nationalist perspective. Canada and the End of Empire challenges this view and demonstrates the centrality of imperial history in Canadian historiography. An important addition to the growing canon of empire studies and imperial history, this book will be of interest to historians of the Commonwealth, and to scholars and students interested in the relationship between colonialism and nationalism.
