Rome, the Greek World, and the East: Volume 2: Government, Society, and Culture in the Roman Empire
Fergus Millar is one of the most influential contemporary historians of the ancient world. His essays and books, above all The Emperor in the Roman World and The Roman Near East, have transformed our understanding of the communal culture and civil government of the Greco-Roman world. This second volume of the three-volume collection of Millar's published essays draws together twenty of his classic pieces on the government, society, and culture of the Roman Empire (some of them published in inaccessible journals). Every article in Volume 2 addresses the themes of how the Roman Empire worked in practice and what it was like to live under Roman rule. As in the first volume of the collection, English translations of the extended Greek and Latin passages in the original articles make Millar's essays accessible to readers who do not read these languages.

Latin Jazz Piano: Hal Leonard Keyboard Style Series by John Valerio

Latin Jazz Piano: Hal Leonard Keyboard Style Series by John Valerio
(Keyboard Instruction). This book offers an excellent coverage of latin and brazilian jazz piano. Just the fact that it covers brazilian rhythms in addition to latin is a plus. John Valerio's examples and explanations are nothing short of advanced, accurate and sophisticated in representing the typical "sound" you've heard in salsa piano, cha cha, bossa nova and samba. The book very clearly points out the differences between styles within styles such as bossa nova vs. samba and salsa, etc. It also covers the fundamentals such as the 3:2 and 2:3 clave patterns in the left and right hands for less advanced pianists, which you constantly hear in salsa and other latin styles. There are a few pleasant surprises in styles as well such as "Guaracha" which almost sounds like an argentine tango. Finally there are play along tracks with a bass, drums and horn instruments that you can practice with.

Gabriele Marasco "Greek and Roman Historiography in Late Antiquity: Fourth to Sixth Century, A.D"
Brill Academic Publishers | 2003-09 | ISBN: 9004112758 | 540 pages | PDF | 2 MB

Greek and Roman Historiography in Late Antiquity: Fourth to Sixth Century, A.D
This book is the first comprehensive study of Greek and Latin historiography from Constantine to the end of the sixth century AD. It aims to examine the development of late antique historiography, stressing chiefly the relations between pagan and Christian historians, their polemics but also their often neglected agreements. Of special importance is the study of the Church historians who are considerable but not adequately known sources for the political and social history of the period. Greek and Latin Historiography in Late Antiquity is a highly valuable and useful reference tool for both scholars and students.

The Latin Tinge: The Impact of Latin American Music on the United States by John Storm Roberts
The Tejano superstar Selena and the tango revival both in the dance clubs and on Broadway are only the most obvious symptoms of how central Latin music is to American musical life. Latino rap has brought a musical revolution, while Latin and Brazilian jazz are ever more significant on the jazz scene. With the first edition of The Latin Tinge, John Storm Roberts offered revolutionary insight into the enormous importance of Latin influences in U.S. popular music of all kinds. Now, in this revised second edition, Roberts updates the history of Latin American influences on the American music scene over the last twenty years.
From the merengue wave to the great traditions of salsa and norteña music to the fusion styles of Cubop and Latin rock, Roberts provides a comprehensive review. With an update on the jazz scene and the careers of legendary musicians as well as newer bands on the circuit, the second edition of The Latin Tinge sheds new light on a rich and complex subject: the crucial contribution that Latin rhythms are making to our uniquely American idiom.

Money Pits: British Mining Companies in the Californian and Australian Gold Rushes of the 1850s (Modern Economic and Social History) by John Woodland
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1472442792 | 282 pages | EPUB | 7 MB

Money Pits: British Mining Companies in the Californian and Australian Gold Rushes of the 1850s
Between 1849 and 1853 shares in nearly 120 public companies to exploit the booming goldfields of California and Australia were offered to the British public. The companies were collectively capitalised at over GBP15 million, but in the end only some GBP1.75 million was actually raised between 42 of them, with only one company surviving what the newspapers of the day described as a 'gold bubble'. This book provides an overview of the entire bubble event, its antecedents and its outcomes. A number of researchers have investigated an earlier boom in the mid-1820s to reopen gold and silver mines in Latin America and several have studied individual company operations of that period. This is the first detailed investigation of the British gold bubble companies of the 1850s and their involvement in the almost simultaneous gold rushes on both sides of the Pacific Ocean.

Mixed Fortunes: An Economic History of China, Russia, and the West

Vladimir Popov, "Mixed Fortunes: An Economic History of China, Russia, and the West"
English | ISBN: 0198703635 | 2014 | 208 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Mixed Fortunes: An Economic History of China, Russia, and the West
The rise of the West is often attributed the presence of certain features in Western countries from the 16th century that were absent in more traditional societies: the abolition of serfdom and Protestant ethics, the protection of property rights, and free universities. The problem with this reasoning is that, before the 16th century, there were many countries with social structures that possessed these same features that didn't experience rapid productivity growth.
This book offers a new interpretation of the 'Great Divergence' and 'Great Convergence' stories. It explores how Western countries grew rich and why parts of the developing world (South and East Asia and the Middle East) did not catch up with the West from 1500 to 1950 but began to narrow the gap after 1950. It also examines why others (Latin America, South Africa, and Russia) were more successful at catching up from 1500 to 1950, but then experienced a slowdown in economic growth compared to other developing countries. Mixed Fortunes offers a novel interpretation of the rise of the West and of the subsequent development of 'the rest' and China and Russia, important examples of two groups of developing countries, are examined in greater detail.
