Third Class in Indian Railways by Mahatma Gandhi

Third Class in Indian Railways by Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the pre-eminent political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer of satyagraha — resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience. This philosophy was firmly founded upon ahimsa, or total nonviolence, and led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. Gandhi is commonly known around the world as Mahatma Gandhi and in India also as Bapu. He is officially honored in India as the Father of the Nation; his birthday, 2 October, is commemorated there as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday.

The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects

The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects by Edward J. Ruppelt

The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects by Edward J. Ruppelt

‘Straight from the horse’s mouth’, as they say. Edward Ruppelt was the first head of the U.S. Air Force’s Project Blue Book, the official project initiated to investigate UFO reports beginning in 1952. This report from 1956 takes us inside these initial investigations, separates fact from fiction, and gives insight into who, when, where, and how sightings were reported and researched in open-minded fashion (for which Ruppelt was renowned), rather than in the typical hushed and secretive (and censored) manner most often associated with government and military reports which are released to the public.

The Prince

The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli

The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli

ll Principe (The Prince) is a political treatise by the Florentine writer Niccolò Machiavelli, originally called “De Principatibus” (About Principalities). The descriptions within The Prince have the general theme of accepting that ends of princes, such as glory, and indeed survival, can justify the use of immoral means to achieve those ends. The treatise is not actually representative of his published work during his lifetime, but it is certainly the best remembered one.

The History of England – Volume 1 Part 1

The History of England - Volume 1 Part 1 by David Hume

The History of England – Volume 1 Part 1 by David Hume

David Hume is one of the great philosophers of the Western intellectual tradition. His philosophical writings earned him lasting fame and renown; his historical writing earned his bread and butter. His “The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688″, published between 1754 and 1764, was immensely popular and Hume wrote that “the copy-money given me by the booksellers much exceeded any thing formerly known in England; I was become not only independent, but opulent.” The six volume work has had numerous editions and is still in print today. David Hume and Thomas Babington Macaulay have frequently been compared as the premier English historians but we don’t have to choose because Macaulay begins where Hume leaves off.

Green Mansions: a romance of the tropical forest

Green Mansions: a romance of the tropical forest by W. H. Hudson

Green Mansions: a romance of the tropical forest by W. H. Hudson

“Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest” is a narration of his life story by Abel, a Venezuelan, to a comrade. Once a wealthy young man, he meddled in politics to the extent of provoking a revolution… which failed.

Escaping into the tropical forests of Guyana Abel takes up gold hunting, then journal-writing, and fails at both. Now with no aim for his life, he drifts until he takes up residence with a remote Indian tribe. Soon he learns of a wood the Indians avoid, as it is inhabited by a dangerous Daughter of the Didi, who, they say, slew one of them with magic. The fellow was in fact hit with a poisoned dart by accident, but his dying belief that she had caught the dart and hurled it at him survived him.

History of Decline of Roman Empire – Vol 1

History of Decline of Roman Empire - Vol 1 by Edward Gibbon

History of Decline of Roman Empire – Vol 1 by Edward Gibbon

The History of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, a major literary achievement of the 18th century published in six volumes, was written by the celebrated English historian Edward Gibbon.

The books cover the period of the Roman Empire after Marcus Aurelius, from just before 180 to 1453 and beyond, concluding in 1590. They take as their material the behavior and decisions that led to the decay and eventual fall of the Roman Empire in the East and West, offering an explanation for why the Roman Empire fell.

Gibbon is sometimes called the first “modern historian of ancient Rome.” By virtue of its mostly objective approach and highly accurate use of reference material, Gibbon’s work was adopted as a model for the methodologies of 19th and 20th century historians.
