Concise, convincing and exciting, this is Christopher Hibbert's brilliant account of the events that shook eighteenth-century Europe to its foundation. With a mixture of lucid storytelling and fascinating detail, he charts the French Revolution from its beginnings at an impromptu meeting on an indoor tennis court at Versailles in 1789, right through to the 'coup d'etat' that brought Napoleon to power ten years later. In the process he explains the drama and complexities of this epoch-making era in the compelling and accessible manner he has made his trademark.

Christopher Hibbert, "The Great Mutiny: India 1857"
The Viking Press | 1978 | ISBN 0670349836 | 472 pages | PDF | 185, 134 MB

In this account, Hibbert's focus is not on the military or political machinations that engulfed the conflict, but upon the people that participated in it. He has based his research upon scores of letters, diaries, and other first hand accounts of the mutiny, as well as on a score of military and government documents. He has combined this information to weave an eminently readable account of the Great Mutiny. However, his account can be a bit graphic at times, which some readers may find unsettling.

Górecki Ahead music album is an attempt to read the legacy of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki in a new way and show it in a different light than before. This record also proves how vital and inspiring is Górecki's music today, especially if its interpretations are undertaken by artists whose instrumental skills go hand in hand with creativity, imagination and the need to create an original artistic expression. Henryk Mikołaj Górecki is one of the greatest and most famous 20th-century composers. He owes his unusual popularity to the Symphony composed in 1976. Paradoxically, despite achieving success on a global scale, the composer's entire output remains virtually unknown to a wider audience…
