Osprey Publishing Description:

Throughout the 17th century large parts of Europe were depopulated during the wide-ranging and savage wars of religion and dynasty, involving all of the major powers. This was therefore a key period in the development of ‘modern’ infantry tactics, such as the use of pole-arms and muskets together - hence the popular expression ‘pike and shot’. These infantry tactics involved different national schools on thought and practice, and were tested bloodily in great battles. This title covers the Dutch-Spanish wars of independence, The Thirty Years’ War and the English Civil Wars.

After the events on Talos IV (chronicled in the classic television episode, 'The Menagerie'), Captain Christopher Pike and the crew of the Enterprise have been called back to Earth for a debrief. Upon entering our solar system they are attacked by a suspicious spacecraft - could this incident somehow be linked back to Talos - and the fate that ultimately awaits Christopher Pike? --

The violin and piano sonatas of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel draw on foreign idioms: gypsy music in Debussy's case and African-American blues in Ravel's. But they remain completely French works, spiced with something exotic, and British violinist Jennifer Pike forges interpretations that keep this in mind. Start with the "Blues" slow movement of the Ravel Violin Sonata in G major: Pike and her accompanist, Martin Roscoe, avoid exaggerating the bluesy qualities of the music and instead emphasize the odd, almost tense disconnection between violin and piano that, combined with the languid blues melodies, gives this piece its special piquancy.

Vaughan Williams withdrew or destroyed many works from his earliest period, but he considered The Solent, with its haunting opening and luminous polyphonic textures, as among his ‘most important works’. The Fantasia is his earliest known piece for solo instrument with orchestra and contains some of his most bravura writing, contrasting with the graceful geniality of the Suite. Depicting a sublimely pastoral scene and now one of the best loved pieces ever written, Vaughan Williams called The Lark Ascending a ‘romance’, a term reserved for his most profoundly lyrical works.

Making the White Man's West: Whiteness and the Creation of the American West

Making the White Man's West: Whiteness and the Creation of the American West by Jason E. Pierce
English | Jan. 31, 2016 | ISBN: 1607323958 | 323 Pages | PDF | 7 MB

The West, especially the Intermountain states, ranks among the whitest places in America, but this fact obscures the more complicated history of racial diversity in the region. In Making the White Man’s West, author Jason E. Pierce argues that since the time of the Louisiana Purchase, the American West has been a racially contested space. Using a nuanced theory of historical “whiteness,” he examines why and how Anglo-Americans dominated the region for a 120-year period.
