A History of Modern Africa: 1800 to the Present, 2nd edition
Updated and revised to reflect recent historic events and scholarly debates, this second edition of A History of Modern Africa recounts the full breadth of Africa's political, economic, and social history over the past two centuries. Author Richard Reid presents a thought-provoking and illuminating journey through the key moments and issues that have shaped Africa's recent past. Arguing that the continent's story cannot be understood without full consideration of its deeper historical experience – both the violent dynamism within Africa, and the external challenges confronting it – Reid focuses on the continuity between the pre-colonial and the postcolonial eras, in addition to highlighting the multifaceted impact of colonial rule.
The new edition places stronger emphasis on the legacies of the 19th century and the colonial period in the context of the twenty-first century. Reid also explores the contemporary tensions facing Africa, including those most apparent in recent developments in Darfur, Sudan, Somalia, Côte d'Ivoire, and Libya. A History of Modern Africa is an essential recounting of the turning points of Africa's past and the rich and diverse strands of African culture that will help shape its future.

Twilight of the Idols: Hollywood and the Human Sciences in 1920s America
Twilight of the Idols revisits some of the sensational scandals of early Hollywood to evaluate their importance for our contemporary understanding of human deviance. By analyzing changes in the star system and by exploring the careers of individual stars—Wallace Reid, Rudolph Valentino, and Mabel Normand among them—Mark Lynn Anderson shows how the era’s celebrity culture shaped public ideas about personality and human conduct and played a pivotal role in the emergent human sciences of psychology, anthropology, and sociology. Anderson looks at motion picture stars who embodied various forms of deviance—narcotic addiction, criminality, sexual perversion, and racial indeterminacy. He considers how the studios profited from popularizing ideas about deviance, and how the debates generated by the early Hollywood scandals continue to affect our notions of personality, sexuality, and public morals.

Greek Gods & Goddesses

Greek Gods & Goddesses by Britannica Educational Publishing, Michael Taft
English | 2014 | eISBN: 1622751531 | eISBN-13: 9781622751532 | 130 pages | PDF | 7 MB
Greek mythology is the body of stories concerning the gods, heroes, and rituals of the ancient Greeks. That the myths contained a considerable element of fiction was recognized by the more critical Greeks, such as the philosopher Plato in the 5th-4th centuries BCE.

Greek Gods & Goddesses
In general, however, in the popular piety of the Greeks, the myths were viewed as true accounts. Greek mythology has subsequently had extensive influence on the arts and literature of Western civilization, which fell heir to much of Greek culture.

Although people of all countries, eras, and stages of civilization have developed myths that explain the existence and workings of natural phenomena, recount the deeds of gods or heroes, or seek to justify social or political institutions, the myths of the Greeks have remained unrivaled in the Western world as sources of imaginative and appealing ideas. Poets and artists from ancient times to the present have derived inspiration from Greek mythology and have discovered contemporary significance and relevance in Classical mythological themes.
