Death and the Afterlife

Free eBooks on Death and the Afterlife

ABC-CLIO (2000) | English | ISBN 0874369398 | 438 pages | CHM | 1.72 MB.  This vast compendium of information contains hundreds of entries on the sometimes obscure, complicated, and mysterious (but always fascinating) funeral customs of dozens of cultures. Topics cover the burial and afterlife customs of China, the Greco-Roman world, India, the Near East, ancient Israel, the Iron Age Celts, Africa, Native Americans, Lapps, Islamic countries, modern Western society, and many other ancient and contemporary cultures. More than a gathering of information, this essential reference draws out the underlying meaning of funeral and afterlife traditions. It makes available a variety of human responses to that most fundamental reality of life: death.


Gary E. R. Schwartz, Publisher: Atria | 2002 | ISBN 074343658X | PDF | 400 pages | 18.3 MB  An esteemed scientist's personal journey from skepticism to wonder and awe provides astonishing answers to a timeless question: Is there life after death?  Are love and life eternal? This exciting account presents provocative evidence that could upset everything that science has ever taught. Daring to risk his worldwide academic reputation, Dr. Gary E. Schwartz, along with his research partner Dr. Linda Russek, asked some of the most prominent mediums in America -- including John Edward, Suzane Northrup, and George Anderson -- to become part of a series of extraordinary experiments to prove, or disprove, the existence of an afterlife.


No one knows what life after death will be like, or heaven, or hell or purgatory. But we can gain an idea through Scripture, Catholic teaching and meditation.


Inherent in the understanding of the Roman Catholic view of the afterlife, one must first consider the Roman Catholic doctrine of sin and matters concerning redemption. Thomas Aquinas has long been a source of theological philosophy for the Catholic Church and has much to say on this and other subjects in his Summa Theologica, which was a series of collected essays on many biblical subjects.

Korean War

Free e-books on the Korean War

Fire and ICe:  The Korean War, 1950 - 1953  Publisher: Da Capo Press | 2000 | ISBN 1882810449 | PDF | 317 pages | 32.2 MB  12 original maps 24 photos and illustrations 6 x 9    Michael Varhola's The Korean War covers every aspect of this overlooked conflict in an original and fast-paced style. Jammed with facts, myths, statistics and analysis, Varhola's study includes chapters on leading personalities on both sides, all of the major actions including the Inchon Landing and retreat from Chosin, and the roles of the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps. Includes a Foreword by Col. John E. Jessup, a Korean War veteran and the author of a number of books, including An Encyclopedic Dictionary of Conflict and Conflict Resolution, 1945-1996.  Michael Varhola has written and edited several books, including Everyday Life During the Civil War. He has also founded or run several publications, including Living History and The Achiever magazines, and has been published in dozens of other publications.


The Coldest Winter:  America and the Korean War  David Halberstam's magisterial and thrilling The Best and the Brightest was the defining book for the Vietnam War. More than three decades later, Halberstam used his unrivalled research and formidable journalistic skills to shed light on another dark corner in our history: the Korean War. The Coldest Winter is a successor to The Best and the Brightest, even though in historical terms it precedes it.Halberstam considered The Coldest Winter the best book he ever wrote, the culmination of forty-five years of writing about America's postwar foreign policy.Up until now, the Korean War has been the black hole of modern American history.The Coldest Winter changes that.Halberstam gives us a masterful narrative of the political decisions and miscalculations on both sides. He charts the disastrous path that led to the massive entry of Chinese forces near the Yalu, and that caught Douglas MacArthur and his soldiers by surprise. He provides astonishingly vivid and nuanced portraits of all the major figures -- Eisenhower, Truman, Acheson, Kim, and Mao, and Generals MacArthur, Almond, and Ridgway. At the same time, Halberstam provides us with his trademark highly evocative narrative journalism, chronicling the crucial battles with reportage of the highest order.At the heart of the book are the individual stories of the soldiers on the front lines who were left to deal with the consequences of the dangerous misjudgments and competing agendas of powerful men. We meet them, follow them, and see some of the most dreadful battles in history through their eyes.

Truman and Korea:  The Political Culture of the Early Cold War Book  Detailing for the first time the story of America's home front during the Korean War, Truman and Korea fills an important gap in the historical scholarship of the era. Paul Pierpaoli analyzes the political, economic, social, and international ramifications of America's first war of Soviet containment, never losing sight of the larger context of the Cold War. He focuses on how and why the Truman administration undertook a bloody, inconclusive war on the Korean peninsula while permanently placing the nation on a war footing. Based upon extensive research in the papers and official presidential files of Harry S. Truman, as well as many manuscript collections and records of wartime and government agencies, Truman and Korea offers a new perspective on the Korean War era and its inextricable ties to broader Cold War decision making.

Free-book:  A Military History of Russia  by David Stone. This book brings to light Russia's undeservedly obscure military past, rectifying the tendency of American and Western military historians to neglect the Russian side of things. Russia, as both a Western and non-Western society, challenges our thinking about Western military superiority. Russia has always struggled with backwardness in comparison with more developed powers, at some times more successfully than others.
