PRODATO

Publisher: Book Club Associates, London, 1983
Pages: 384
Price: 1500 RSD
History

In putting the naval campaign of 1588 back into the context of the first great international crisis of modern history, Mattingly builds up like the movements of a symphony a broad picture of how events of the time affected men’s actions, plans and hopes. He brilliantly connects a series of scenes or episodes, shifting the point of focus from England to the continent and from courts to ships and cities. A feeling of tension mounts to a crescendo throughout Europe as the great drama of the Armada is approached. The battle itself and the aftermath are so vividly and poignantly described that they might be happening in our world today.

Biography

For more than 70 years, Al Capone has been equated with wealth, violence and corruption. As America’s most infamous criminal, he has intrigued, attracted, and repulsed the general public with his legendary criminal deeds. This concise biography separates the myth from the man. Beginning with a historical look at corruption in American society – along with a clarification of the terms Black Hand, Mafia, and Organized Crime – Capone is presented in his own time and place. A timeline summarizes the events of his life and career.  Athorough bibliography of print and electronic sources will assist students and general readers seeking to perform further research, making it perfect for anyone interested in Capone’s life, organized crime, the prohibition era, and the struggle of lower-class Americans to rise in society.

Price : 1200 RSD
World

In this lively, searching study Ronald Hingley maps many previously unexplored areas of the notoriously enigmatic Russian mentality and supplies some startingly fresh insights.
Are the Russians life enhancers or life-deniers ? How do their emotions and their reasoning faculties interrelate ? When do they over-expose truth, and when do they keep their lips sealed ? How do they rate as social beings ? What is the real function of their much-advertised hospitality, what the all-important role of alcohol ? Did they invent campus revolutions, women’s lib, female political assassins and the cult of youth, long before these phenomena were recreated by the twentieth-century West ? How do the Soviet and Russian mentalities mix ?

Julius Caesar attempted to impose a unified calendar on his burgeoning empire, but he could not calculate exactly the length of the year. His Julian calendar gained time over the true solar year, leading to calls for reform during the middle ages, most notably by the British monk Roger Bacon.
The crucuble for the development of astronomy and mathematics, the calendar has always been the measure of how the world is understood and evaluated, and the object of fascination for the greatest scholars.

This is a compelling narrative of a wild bunch of mercenaries working in Bosnia, told in the language of the men who are fighting and dying for a cause which is not their own. These are battle-hungry men addicted to the « buzz », the excitement of war, the comradeship of combat or the ultimate thrill of inconsequential killing. They are led by ex-British soldier, ex-foreign Legionnaire and now experienced mercenary, Kit Freeman, who until recently was the chief training officer of the Croatian Army’s only English speaking company. The mercenaries were there from the outbreak of hostilities in 1992.

Price: 1000 RSD
Travel

Eduardo Barros Prado was only twenty when he established an international reputation as guide to the expedition of Sir Hamilton Rice into hitherto unpenetrated regions of the Amazon. So profound was his knowledge of the great forests, of the Indian tribes who roamed them and of the majestic rivers flowing through them, that he treats his own outstanding discoveries almost nonchalantly.
This book is rich with incidents and unforgettable characters. For the timid it will confirm that the Amazon is best explored from an armchair; for the reader with a spirit of adventure, that the Amazon is still one of the most spell-binding territories on Earth.

The book has a dual purpose of presenting a coherent and simple picture of the Middle Eastern politica scene, and also of putting Arab nationalism into its proper historical and cultural background. It describes the decline of the Ottoman Empire and the emergence of the „vital interests“ of teh Western powers during the early modern period.  Analyzing the political and economic geography of the ney Middle East as settled by the 1919 treaties, it depicts the social and economic problems which are peculiar to this „undeveloped area“. The main narrative section of the book describes the rise of modern Arab nationalism and the entry of Russia on the Middle Eastern scene. Nasser gets full attention, and so does the Communist problem, both inside and outside Iraq. The story is brought down to the present.

As with all other World in Colour titles, it presents an authentic story in word and picture of the country, its people, its history, its way of life. This is an essential book not only for the traveller but also for the general reader whose bookshelves are passports to armchair travel.

Pages: 319
Price: 2200 RSD
Travel

Colonel Van der Post yent to Russia with an open mind. He was neither anti nor pro-communist, he did not go to prove any particular social or political theory. He saw the Russian nation as a collection of individual people. And the only way to understand them was to get amongst them and talk to them. This he succeeded in doing to a remarkable degree.
One of the fascinations of this long and richly satisfying book is the way in which the author brings the colours and sounds and smells of Russi alive. He conveys vividly the sense of vast distance and space, the excitement of a gret nation on the move, the enchantment of an infinitely varied landscape, and the innate generosity and friendliness of ordinary Russian people.

Religion, History

One of the greatest of the world religions through the 1500 wears of its existence, Islam has also been by far the most misunderstood. The Western world has undergone a complete revolution of thought in recent centuries, but its mistrust of Islam is still essentially medieval.
Karen Armstrong’s book cuts through the cliche to reveal a faith which has inspired as many scholars, mystics and poets as soldiers. Islam, she makes clear, has not only been one of the world’s most important and inspiring religions but the basis for one of its most illustrious civilizations.
