Struggle and Suffrage in Morpeth & Northumberland Women's Lives and the Fight for Equality
English | 2020 | ISBN: 1526719657 | 122 pages | True (PDF EPUB) | 36.77 MB
For much of the nineteenth century, the women of Northumberland had occupied crucial, though largely underappreciated and acknowledged, roles within society. Aside from the hard life of raising families in an area where money was often hard to come by, and where much of the available work was labor intensive and dangerous, women were also expected to play a role in bringing money into the household. In what was a largely agrarian county, female laborers, who were known as bondagers, were widely respected for their contribution to the local economy although there were those who criticized the system for forcing women to undertake hard manual labor. The farming economy in Northumberland depended so much upon female labor that many men found that it was far easier to be taken on by a prospective employer if they could assure that employer that they would be able to bring a suitable female worker with them. The period was also one of considerable upheaval. There were a number of prominent Northumbrian suffragists and the local radical suffragettes launched a number of attacks in the area. Morpeth was a very early supporter of women’s suffrage and the Mayor and local council actively gave their support to the cause, although they remained largely opposed to the actions of the suffragettes. Although born in London, Emily Wilding Davison’s mother was Northumbrian and she had a wide network of relations in Morpeth and throughout the county. After her father’s death her mother had relocated to the Northumberland village of Longhorsley and Emily spent long period with her, recuperating after her numerous hunger strikes. Famously losing her life after being struck by the King’s horse at the 1913 Derby, Emily was buried with great ceremony in a quiet Morpeth churchyard and to this day she remains one of Morpeth’s most famous (adopted) daughters, with her grave remaining a site of pilgrimage for many supporters of women’s rights.

Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights
Omar Barghouti, "Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights"
English | 2011 | ISBN: 1608461149 | PDF | pages: 321 | 1.1 mb
"I have been to Palestine where I’ve witnessed the racially segregated housing and the humiliation of Palestinians at military roadblocks. I can’t help but remember the conditions we experienced in South Africa under apartheid. We could not have achieved our freedom without the help of people around the world using the nonviolent means of boycotts and divestment to compel governments and institutions to withdraw their support for the apartheid regime. Omar Barghouti’s lucid and morally compelling book is perfectly timed to make a major contribution to this urgently needed global campaign for justice, freedom and peace."

The Greek War of Independence The Struggle for Freedom from Ottoman Oppression
The Greek War of Independence: The Struggle for Freedom from Ottoman Oppression By David Brewer
2011 | 394 Pages | ISBN: 1590206916 | EPUB | 5 MB
In what is certain to be the standard history for many years to come, David Brewer has captured the period brilliantly, from the ground up-the heroes and villains, the victories, and the tragic defeats. Greece was, as Byron said, a land with a special destiny: "Freedom’s home, or Glory’s grave." The Greek War of Independence is a masterful work-the first comprehensive study in thirty years-of one of the most heroic and bloody struggles for independence any people has ever waged. This was the revolution of the Romantic Age, inspiring painters, poets, and patriots the world over, fired as much by Lord Byron’s ringing words and Delacroix’s brilliant paintings as by Greece’s seemingly hopeless plight. For nearly four hundred years the Ottoman Turks governed Greece, subjecting the country to crushing and arbitrary tax burdens and its peasants to serfdom; the glories of the ancient past were gone, and under Turkish rule Greece was poor and backward. But inspired by the examples of the American and French revolutions, Napoleon’s victories, and the Latin American wars of liberation, the Greek people rose up against their Turkish masters in 1821. For twelve brutal years-a time of terrible violence and bloody massacre-the Greeks and the foreign volunteers who flocked to their cause fought until independence was won in 1833.

Money, Power, and the People The American Struggle to Make Banking Democratic
Money, Power, and the People: The American Struggle to Make Banking Democratic by Christopher W. Shaw
English | September 5, 2019 | ISBN: 022663633X | EPUB | 400 pages | 1.4 MB
Banks and bankers are hardly the most beloved institutions and people in this country. With its corruptive influence on politics and stranglehold on the American economy, Wall Street is held in high regard by few outside the financial sector. But the pitchforks raised against this behemoth are largely rhetorical: we rarely see riots in the streets or public demands for an equitable and democratic banking system that result in serious national changes.

The Engagement America's Quarter-Century Struggle over Same-Sex Marriage [Audiobook]
English | ASIN: B082TTV8Z2 | 2021 | 33 hours and 47 minutes |kbps | 964 MB
The riveting story of the conflict over same-sex marriage in the United States – the most important civil rights breakthrough of the new millennium. On June 26, 2015, the United States Supreme Court ruled that state bans on gay marriage were unconstitutional, making same-sex unions legal across the United States. But the road to that momentous decision was much longer than many know. In this definitive account, Sasha Issenberg vividly guides us through same-sex marriage’s unexpected path from the unimaginable to the inevitable. It is a story that begins in Hawaii in 1990, when a rivalry among local activists triggered a sequence of events that forced the state to justify excluding gay couples from marriage. In the White House, one president signed the Defense of Marriage Act, which elevated the matter to a national issue, and his successor tried to write it into the Constitution.
Over 25 years, the debate played out across the country, from the first legal same-sex weddings in Massachusetts to the epic face-off over California’s Proposition 8, and, finally, to the landmark Supreme Court decisions of United States v. Windsor and Obergefell v. Hodges. From churches to hedge funds, no corner of American life went untouched. This richly detailed narrative follows the coast-to-coast conflict through courtrooms and war rooms, bedrooms and boardrooms, to shed light on every aspect of a political and legal controversy that divided Americans like no other. Following a cast of characters that includes those who sought their own right to wed, those who fought to protect the traditional definition of marriage, and those who changed their minds about it, The Engagement is certain to become a seminal book on the modern culture wars.
