Summary

In September 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union invaded and occupied the republic of Poland, dividing the country between them. Some two hundred thousand Polish soldiers became prisoners of war in Russian camps, which were often converted monasteries. In March 1940, Joseph Stalin approved a plan to murder twenty-two thousand officers, sergeants, and civilian intellectuals, the better to deprive eastern Poland of the men who might contest communist rule when the eastern half of the country was incorporated into the Soviet Union.
 

	After the German invasion of Russia the following year, the first mass graves were uncovered and revealed to the world by Nazi propagandists. The Russians in turn blamed the atrocity on the Germans, claiming that the bodies were actually Jews dressed in Polish uniforms. Britain and the United States accepted this fabrication so as not to harm their alliance with the Soviet Union. But in 1952 the U.S. Congress convened hearings that convincingly laid the murders at the doorstep of Stalin himself. This is the story of those findings.

    Real Submissives is a must read for any women considering exploring their submissive side. This book goes places that will surprise some and possibly shock others—as it is never anything less than candid. 
    
    	As a record of the experiences of lifestyle submissive females, it certainly isn’t some 50 Shades fantasy-fest! These women ‘walk the talk’; whether it be extreme role-play, slave training, pony girl, enforced servitude and prostitution, abduction and kidnapping. As this is the REAL THING, some of the experiences related can be extremely shocking and disturbing. It’s DEFINITELY not one for the faint hearted! 
    
    	For many interviewees, the need for domination had its roots, not surprisingly, in childhood. An authoritarian, even brutal, father started a trend which they sought to recreate in future relationships. In many fantasies, it will be noted, the division between controlled and controller becomes blurred. In other words, the so-called submissive is actually directing the scenario. By far the most popular and powerful scenario for most women was the idea of being used by two or more men. For all those who fantasise about it only those with a co-operative male partner willing to organise it ever do anything about it. 
    
    	A submissive is rarely passive, but invariably an active participant in the action, often directing the scenario ‘from below’ and letting the dominant man or woman know exactly what she wants. Many a master has learned to his cost the penalty of not providing the submissive woman with what she craves. She will up and leave. As one slave-girl put it: “A woman will follow where she wants to be led”. I sincerely hope you enjoy where this book leads you.

    An essential book for anyone who’s ever been captivated by horses, The Age of the Horse is a breathtaking exploration of the enduring connection between humans and Equus caballus. Equestrian expert Susanna Forrest presents a unique, sweeping panorama of the animal’s prominent role in societies around the world and across time.Fifty-six million years ago, the earliest equid walked the earth—and beginning with the first-known horse-keepers of the Copper Age, the horse has played an integral part in human history. It has sustained us as a source of food, an industrial and agricultural machine, a comrade in arms, a symbol of wealth, power, and the wild.Combining fascinating anthropological detail and incisive personal anecdote, Forrest draws from an immense range of archival documents as well as literature and art to illustrate how our evolution has coincided with that of horses. In paintings and poems (such as Byron’s famous “Mazeppa”), in theater and classical music (including works by Liszt and Tchaikovsky), representations of the horse have changed over centuries, portraying the crucial impact that we’ve had on each other. Forrest deftly synthesizes this material with her own experience in the field, traveling the globe to give us a diverse, comprehensive look at the horse in our lives today: from Mongolia where she observes the endangered takhi, to a show-horse performance at the Palace of Versailles; from a polo club in Beijing to Arlington, Virginia, where veterans with PTSD are rehabilitated through interaction with horses.With passion and singular insight, Forrest investigates the complexities of human and horse coexistence, illuminating the multifaceted ways our cultures were shaped by the powerful creature.

    Heroes of the 90s is a book composed by journalists of the newspaper Kommersant. The book sheds light on the transformation of the USSR and the country's social, state, financial, economic and civic institutions into a new state - the Russian Federation. The book covers Russia's first decade as a new country, the turbulent 90s that formed Russia's reality today. The book revisits the storming of the White House, the allocation of vouchers in attempts to set up a new economy of private ownership, Boris Yeltsin and the Chechen wars, hired killers, Ponzi schemes and financial crises, Boris Berezovsky, Anatoly Chubais and others. The book is based on facts and testimonies from those who lived through the era, many of whom share their stories with the world for the first time. Heroes of the 90s offers to the western reader, for the first time in history, a rare opportunity to learn about the developments in the post-Soviet Russia from the perspectives of the Russian journalists who have spent years investigating the ups and downs of the period. Translated by Huw Davies.
