Red October
By Douglas Boyd
The October Revolution happened in November 1917. Later Soviet propaganda pretended for several decades that it was 'the will of the people', but in reality the brutal rebellion, which killed millions and raised the numerically tiny Bolshevik Party to power, was made possible by massive injections of German money laundered through a Swedish bank.The so-called 'workers' and peasants' revolution' had a cast of millions, of which the three stars were neither workers nor peasants. Nor were they Russian. Josef V. Djugashvili - Stalin - was a Georgian who never did speak perfect Russian; Leiba Bronstein - Trotsky - was a Jewish Ukrainian; Vladimir I. Ulyanov - Lenin - was a mixture of Tatar and other Asiatic bloodlines.Karl Marx had thought that the Communist revolution would happen in an industrialised country like Germany. Instead, German cash enabled Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin and Co. to destroy ineffective tsarist rule and declare war on the whole world. This is how they did it, told largely in the words of people who were there.

Rats Alley
By Peter Chasseaud
When first published in 2006, Rats Alley was a ground-breaking piece of research, the first-ever study of trench names of the Western Front. Now, in this fully updated and revised second edition, the gazetteer has been extended to well over 20,000 trench names, complete with map references - in itself an essential tool for any First World War researcher. However, combined with the finely considered history and analysis of trench naming during the First World War, this is an edition that no military history enthusiast should be without.Discover when, how and why British trenches were first named and follow the names' fascinating development throughout the First World War, alongside details of French and German trench-naming practices. Looked at from both contemporary and modern points of view, the names reveal the full horror of trench warfare and throw an extraordinary sidelight on the cultural life of the period, and the landscape and battles of the Western Front. Names such as Lovers Lane, Idiot Corner, Cyanide Trench, Crazy Redoubt, Doleful Post, Furies Trench, Peril Avenue, Lunatic Sap and Gangrene Alley can be placed in context. With useful information on where original trench maps are held, and how to obtain copies, Rats Alley is a vital volume for both military and family historians.

Movement Matters
By Katy Bowman
If you could fit our culture of convenience into a petri dish, what would it look like?Movement Matters is a series of essays in which biomechanist Katy Bowman continues to explain the mechanics of a sedentary culture and the deep complexity of the phenomenon we call movement. By exposing convenience as a way of outsourcing movements, Katy's groundbreaking work in the relationship between movement and nature expands to models that have evolved from thinking of the body as a single structure to considering it to be a cluster of a trillion bodies, and how those trillion bodies are being loaded by our habitat and how we move to interact with it.From movement nutrients to forest school to the problems with investigating parts, our culturally conditioned preference to be sedentary is explored from many angles.Thought-provoking, inspiring, and always entertaining, Movement Matters is a collection of essays conducting a deep exploration of movement and its role in science, community, work, and social responsibility. Deftly deconstructing sedentary assumptions that underlie much of our research into human health, Bowman works to reclaim our space in and responsibility to nature and ourselves.With essays on foraging, the nearsightedness epidemic, and the limitations of a parts approach to health, Bowman's gaze is sweeping and incisive, always with the underlying message that moving is powerful and important, and perhaps the most joyful, freeing, and efficient form of activism there is.

Functional Anatomy of the Pilates Core
By Evan Osar
"Whether the reader is an academic, a professional teacher, or a Pilates practitioner, Functional Anatomy of the Pilates Core will provide profound insights into the central emphasis of the method: core stabilization. Pilates is widely accepted and utilized as a system that promotes health and proper movement patterns through the development of balanced muscles, joint alignment, and core control. Here, the six fundamental principles--Centering, Concentration, Control, Precision, Breath, and Flow--are explained in the light of current research on neuroplasticity (the brain's capacity to reorganize itself be developing new neuronal connections), and on the function of fascia (the matrix-like connective tissue of the body). When the principles of functional anatomy are not considered during exercise application, muscle imbalances, chronic tightness, and even pain can result. Clearly written, and beautifully illustrated with over 110 full-color illustrations, Functional Anatomy of the Pilates Core reveals the missing connection between functional anatomy of the core--how human bodies stabilize and move--and its application during the fundamental core exercises. Table of Contents: Chapter 1 Introduction to the Pilates Principles Chapter 2 Functional Anatomy of the Pilates Core Chapter 3 The Breathe Activation Strategy(TM) for Core Stabilization Chapter 4 Dysfunction and Responses to Non-optimal Core Stabilization Strategies Chapter 5 Integrating the Pilates Principles"--

Space Oddities
By S. D. Tucker
On 4 October 1957, the Soviet Union's famous satellite Sputnik was launched into orbit, and the Space Age began. Or did it? Sputnik may have marked the beginning of humanity's physical exploration of the universe, but we had already been exploring it with our minds for thousands of years, often with some very surprising results. To mark the seventieth anniversary of Sputnik's launch, S. D. Tucker seeks out the strange, surprising and downright silly ideas about outer-space that have arisen throughout history. Human beings have always gazed up at the twinkling specks of stars and wondered what exactly they are; the heavens became an inky-black canvas upon which people could project their own personal fantasies and those of the societies they lived in. From tales of crumbling canals and lost civilisations on Mars, to the Nazi theory that the universe was made of cosmic ice, to the mind-boggling proposal that flying saucers were piloted by super-intelligent alien bees with jewels for eyes, mankind has had to travel down a lot of blind alleyways before finding the answers that were needed to initiate the blast-off that finally took us to the moon. This entertaining and revealing book explores stories of the stars invented before Sputnik, the Space Age or modern science were even a glimmer in the eye of mankind, and follows through to consider the odd and tenuous theories about space that still exist to this day. Whether you're intrigued by the notion of singing angels inhabiting the planets, secret houses hidden on meteorites, or alien nudist colonies on the moon, Space Oddities will offer you a sight of the weird, wacky and wonderful world that people throughout history have imagined lies beyond the stars.

Become the Force
By Daniel M. Jones
For anyone who has watched and fallen in love with the Star Wars films and wanted to become a Jedi (just as Daniel M Jones did as a young boy). This is the first and only Jedi Bible. Daniel M Jones founded the Church of Jediism in 2007 following the Jedi Census phenomenon of 2001; it now has over 500,000 members around the world. This is the book his fans have been waiting for. In it, Daniel outlines the Jedi perspective and provides practical tools for anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of how to use the Force in everyday life. A metaphor for the universal life energy that connects us all, the Force can be both light and dark, good and bad. Now, more than ever, it is our responsibility to overcome the Dark Side. This book does not aim to convert, but to inspire its readers to live a life of meaning and purpose according to the universal spiritual teachings of "the way of the Jedi." It will include: Daniel's own fascinating spiritual journey and how overcoming personal struggles has awakened him to his purpose. A complete toolkit that will allow anyone to genuinely embrace "the way of the Jedi" and use Jedi teachings to empower mind, body, heart and spirit. A comprehensive explanation of Jediism as a spiritual movement (a universal desire for self-awareness, spiritual awakening, peace, love and harmony) rather than a religion. Become the Force shows that the Jedi-minded among us might usher in a new spirituality and shift in global consciousness towards peace and harmony that is more powerful than any we can possibly imagine.

Aliens
By Ron Miller
Aliens: Past, Present, Future is the first coloured, illustrated book to comprehensively chart humankind's fascination with the concept of existence of life beyond Earth - from both the perspective of scientists and in popular culture.Aliens: Past, Present, Future covers the subject of extraterrestrial life from every angle, from the earliest speculations more than 400 years ago to today's ongoing search for Earth 2.0. In between are lessons learned about how life originated on our own planet, as well as the story behind the vast cult that has grown up around "flying saucers" and strange visitors from other planets, including popular culture renditions of them.The book is organised into three parts. Part 1 reviews humankind's changing thinking about possible worlds other than our own through history. Part 2 discusses the science of extraterrestrial life in a way that every reader - non-scientist and scientist alike - will understand. And Part 3 explores the deep impact the idea of extraterrestrial beings has had - not only on science and space exploration but on popular culture as well - and its potential impact on philosophy and religion. The very concept of extraterrestrial life has been a driving force behind our exploration of the universe and a pervasive presence in movies, books, comics and advertising throughout the past century. Written by bestselling author Ron Miller, the book features more than 200 illustrations - from centuries-old engravings, book, comic and magazine art, movie posters, purported UFO photographs, to colour illustrations showing what today's cutting-edge scientists think extraterrestrial life could be like. Could there even be aliens among us already?

The Real Persuasion
By Peter James Bowman
Her father is a vain, foolish baronet, obsessed with his lineage but so careless with money that he is obliged to quit his ancestral seat. Her sister is a fretful invalid with a good-natured husband and two disobedient sons. She herself falls in love with a handsome naval officer, and he with her, but her proud family consider his status and prospects inadequate. Heartbroken, the lovers part: he goes to sea while she leads a forlorn life at home. Years later he returns with a fortune in prize money, and after further misunderstandings he claims her as his bride. This is the story of Anne Elliot in Jane Austen's Persuasion. It is also the story - true this time - of Katherine Bisshopp, the clever, beautiful daughter of an old Sussex family. Drawing on Katherine's letters and journals and other family papers, this book relates the joys and anxieties of her youth, her harrowing eleven-year courtship with George Pechell, and their happy and prosperous union, which produced two daughters and a son. Splinter chapters draw parallels with Jane Austen's portrait of society and reveal the extraordinary coincidences of character and circumstance between Katherine Bisshopp and Anne Elliot, while the real woman's experiences after her marriage are seen as a possible future for the fictional heroine. The reality of history and the deeper truth of literature together yield a detailed picture of the age.

Pimp State
By Kat Banyard
Never before have prostitution, strip clubs and pornography been as profitable, widely used or embedded in mainstream culture as they are today. How society should respond to the rise of the sex trade is shaping up to be one of the Twenty-First Century's big questions. Should it be legal to pay for sex? Isn't it a woman's choice whether she strips for money? Could online porn warping the attitudes of a generation of boys? An increasingly popular set of answers maintains that prostitution is just work, porn is fantasy, demand is inevitable; so fully legalise the sex trade and it can be made safe. Kat Banyard contends that these are profoundly dangerous myths. Sexual consent is not a commodity, objectification and abuse are inherent to prostitution, and the sex trade poses a grave threat to the struggle for women's equality. Skilfully weaving together first-hand investigation, interviews and the latest research, Pimp State powerfully argues that sex trade myth-makers will find themselves on the wrong side of history.

The Other Paris
By Luc Sante
Paris, the City of Light, the city of fine dining, seductive couture and intellectual hauteur, was until fairly recently always accompanied by its shadow: the city of the poor, the outcast, the criminal, the eccentric, the wilfully nonconforming. In The Other Paris, Luc Sante gives us a panoramic view of that second metropolis, whose traces are in the bricks and stones of the contemporary city, and in the culture of France itself. Richly illustrated with over three hundred images, The Other Paris reclaims the city from the modern bon vivants and speculators; scuttling through the knotted streets, through the whorehouses and dance halls, the knock-out shops and hobo shelters of the old city.

The New Odyssey
By Patrick Kingsley
Europe is facing a wave of migration unmatched since the end of World War II - and no one has reported on this crisis in more depth or breadth than the Guardian's migration correspondent, Patrick Kingsley. Throughout 2015, Kingsley travelled to 17 countries along the migrant trail, meeting hundreds of refugees making epic odysseys across deserts, seas and mountains to reach the holy grail of Europe. This is Kingsley's unparalleled account of who these voyagers are. It's about why they keep coming, and how they do it. It's about the smugglers who help them on their way, and the coastguards who rescue them at the other end. The volunteers that feed them, the hoteliers that house them, and the border guards trying to keep them out. And the politicians looking the other way. The New Odyssey is a work of original, bold reporting written with a perfect mix of compassion and authority by the journalist who knows the subject better than any other.
