Lift Every Voice: The History of African American Music (The African American History Series) by Burton W. Peretti
English | Dec 16, 2008 | ISBN: 0742558118 | 240 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
Since their enslavement in West Africa and transport to plantations of the New World, black people have made music that has been deeply entwined with their religious, community, and individual identities. Music was one of the most important constant elements of African American culture in the centuries-long journey from slavery to freedom. It also continued to play this role in blacks' post-emancipation odyssey from second-class citizenship to full equality.

Lift Every Voice: The History of African American Music
Lift Every Voice traces the roots of black music in Africa and slavery and its evolution in the United States from the end of slavery to the present day. The music's creators, consumers, and distributors are all part of the story. Musical genres such as spirituals, ragtime, the blues, jazz, gospel, rhythm and blues, rock, soul, and hip-hop-as well as black contributions to classical, country, and other American music forms-depict the continuities and innovations that mark both the music and the history of African Americans. A rich selection of documents help to define the place of music within African American communities and the nation as a whole.

A People’s History of American Empire

FREEDownload : A People’s History of American Empire

A People's History of American Empire by Howard Zinn, Mike Konopacki, Paul Buhle
English | 2008 | ISBN: 0805087443, 0805077790 | 288 pages | PDF | 80 MB

A People’s History of American Empire
Adapted from the bestselling grassroots history of the United States, the story of America in the world, told in comics form

Since its landmark publication in 1980, A People’s History of the United States has had six new editions, sold more than 1.7 million copies, become required classroom reading throughout the country, and been turned into an acclaimed play. More than a successful book, A People’s History triggered a revolution in the way history is told, displacing the official versions with their emphasis on great men in high places to chronicle events as they were lived, from the bottom up.

Now Howard Zinn, historian Paul Buhle, and cartoonist Mike Konopacki have collaborated to retell, in vibrant comics form, a most immediate and relevant chapter of A People’s History: the centuries-long story of America’s actions in the world. Narrated by Zinn, this version opens with the events of 9/11 and then jumps back to explore the cycles of U.S. expansionism from Wounded Knee to Iraq, stopping along the way at World War I, Central America, Vietnam, and the Iranian revolution. The book also follows the story of Zinn, the son of poor Jewish immigrants, from his childhood in the Brooklyn slums to his role as one of America’s leading historians.

Shifting from world-shattering events to one family’s small revolutions, A People’s History of American Empire presents the classic ground-level history of America in a dazzling new form.

Dragon Queen by Stephen Deas
Gollancz | English | 2013 | ISBN-10: 0575100532 | 632 Pages | EPUB | 0.6 MB
The dragons have escaped their centuries-long enslavement and the last few shattered humans cower in the ruins of once-proud kingdoms. Captured and kidnapped, the Dragon Queen Zafir has seen her rule fall in flames, her throne taken by her lover, and her dreams vanish into smoke. Unsure of her destiny, she can do little but prepare herself for the worst.

Dragon Queen by Stephen Deas
In another world, where dragons are all but forgotten, the Sea-Lords of the Taiytakei search for weapons against a threat they barely understand. With a captured dragon, a stolen alchemist, and a Dragon Queen, they hope to discover their salvation, but neither Sea-Lords nor dragons nor their riders can be trusted. And somewhere else Berren Crowntaker, once the thief-taker's apprentice, dreams of a return to the field of battle; but the body he wears is not his own, and carries within it a secret memory that once destroyed worlds. And it dreams of dragons.

This sweeping narrative moves across the world, from ancient Greece and Rome, whose mighty aqueducts still supply modern cities, to China, where emperors marshaled armies of laborers in a centuries-long struggle to tame powerful rivers. As the earths population approaches nine billion and ancient aquifers run dry, we once again remember the importance of this vital resource. To solve the water crises of the future, we may need to adapt the water ethos of our ancestors, captured here in rich detail by Brian Fagan.
