There and Back Again: J. R. R. Tolkien and the Origins of the Hobbit 1. Atherton Mark : There and Back Again: J. R. R. Tolkien and the Origins of the Hobbit  , 2012  г.

'Even the smallest person can change the course of the future'. The prophetic words of Galadriel, addressed to Frodo as he prepared to travel from Lothlorien to Mordor to destroy the One Ring, are just as pertinent to J R R Tolkien's own fiction. For decades, hobbits and the other fantastical creatures of Middle-earth have captured the imaginations of a fiercely loyal tribe of readers, all enhance... дальше >>
The Cinema of Alexander Sokurov 2. Beumers Birgit : The Cinema of Alexander Sokurov  , 2012  г.

Alexander Sokurov's 'Russian Ark' is generally acclaimed as a milestone in cinematography. In this film Sokurov reversed the idea of montage, creating instead the sensation of an uninterrupted flow of time encompassing three centuries of Russia's cultural history through a single, 90-minute take. Yet this film is but one milestone in the work of this versatile director. Since the 1990s, Sokurov's ... дальше >>
Yemen Divided 3. Brehony N. : Yemen Divided  , 2013  г.

South Yemen has come to be seen as a potential Al-Qaeda stronghold and at the heart of a separatist movement threatening to rip apart southern Arabia. How has this country of forbidding mountains and arid deserts gone from British colony to communist state and then to 'terrorist base' in just half a century? In 'Yemen Divided', author and Middle East expert Noel Brehony tells for the first time th... дальше >>
A Short History of the Spanish Civil War 4. Casanova Julian : A Short History of the Spanish Civil War  , 2012  г.

The years of the Spanish Civil War filled twentieth-century Spain with hope, frustration and drama. Not only did it pit countryman against countryman, and neighbour against neighbour, but from 1936-39 this bitterly contended struggle sucked in competing and seemingly atavistic forces that were soon to rage across the face of Europe, and then the rest of the world: nationalism and republicanism; co... дальше >>

From Cairo to Damascus and from Tunisia to Bahrain, Layla Al-Zubaidi and Matthew Cassel have brought together some of the most exciting new writing born out of revolution in the Arab world. This is a remarkable collection of testimony, entirely composed by participants in, and witnesses to, the profound changes shaking their region.

A History of the Squares and Palaces of London 6. Chancellor Edwin Beresford : A History of the Squares and Palaces of London  , 2012  г.

The squares of London are amongst its most famous and best loved features. Berkeley Square, Eaton Square, St James' Square - the names are inextricably linked with the history of London itself. And the great houses of the capital - Buckingham House, Apsley House, Spencer House, to mention but a few - are intimately bound with the story not just of London but of the great families of the land. Edwi... дальше >>
Reaching for the Stars. A New History of Bomber Command in World War II 7. Connelly Mark : Reaching for the Stars. A New History of Bomber Command in World War II  , 2002  г.

The role of Bomber Command in World War II is still shrouded in mystery. This book provides a new and revisionary narrative of the campaign, serving as both a military history and an investigation into how modern perceptions of Bomber Command have come about. It shows why Bomber Command - in one of the largest and bloodiest campaigns of the war with 55,000 aircrew lost - has received so much atten... дальше >>
A Short History of American Revolutionary War 8. Conway Stephen : A Short History of American Revolutionary War  , 2013  г.

The American war against British imperial rule (1775-1783) was the world's first great popular revolution. Ideologically defined by the colonists' formal Declaration of Independence in 1776, the struggle has taken on something a mythic character, especially in the United States. From the Boston Tea Party to Paul Revere's ride to raise the countryside of New England against the march of the Redcoat... дальше >>

The Battle That Shook Europe: Poltava and the Birth of the Russian Empire 10. Englund Peter : The Battle That Shook Europe: Poltava and the Birth of the Russian Empire  , 2013  г.

'This victory', exulted Peter the Great, 'has laid the final stone in the foundations of St Petersburg!' The Battle of Poltava, 1709, marks the birth of the Tsar's vast Russian Empire. In 1700, seeking to open Russian trade routes to the West, the Tsar combined with Denmark, Saxony and Poland to attack Swedish hegemony in the North. Against the odds, King Charles XII of Sweden subdued the hostile ... дальше >>
