Forbidden Bookshelf (27 Book Series)
From Book 1:
A look at America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and the capitalists who changed the world—setting the stage for the most devastating global financial collapse in history—from “a diligent and perceptive reporter” (Forbes).

In the decades following the Civil War, America entered an era of unprecedented corporate expansion, with ultimate financial power in the hands of a few wealthy industrialists who exploited the system for everything it was worth. The Rockefellers, Fords, Morgans, and Vanderbilts were the “lords of creation” who, along with like-minded magnates, controlled the economic destiny of the country, unrestrained by regulations or moral imperatives. Through a combination of foresight, ingenuity, ruthlessness, and greed, America’s giants of industry remolded the US economy in their own image. They established their power and authority, ensuring that they—and they alone—would control the means of production, transportation, energy, and commerce—creating the conditions for the stock market collapse of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed.

As modern society continues to be affected by wealth inequality and cycles of boom and bust, it’s as important as ever to understand the origins of financial disaster, and the policies, practices, and people who bring them on. The Lords of Creation, first published when the catastrophe of the 1930s was still painfully fresh, is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, speculators, scoundrels, and robber barons. It is a tale of innovation and shocking exploitation—and a sobering reminder that history can indeed repeat itself.

The Anglo-Zulu War (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: It is December 1878, and war looms on the horizon in South Africa. British High Commissioner Sir Henry Bartle-Frere seeks to dismantle the powerful neighbouring kingdom of the Zulus and uses an incursion along the disputed border as his justification for war. He issues an impossible ultimatum to the Zulu king, Cetshwayo, demanding he disband his armies and pay massive reparations. With a heavy heart, the king prepares his nation for war against their former allies.

Leading the invasion is Lieutenant General Sir Frederic Thesiger, Baron Chelmsford, a highly experienced officer fresh off a decisive triumph over the neighbouring Xhosa tribes. He and Frere are convinced that a quick victory over the Zulus will negate any repercussions from the home government for launching what is, in essence, an illegal war.

Recently arrived to South Africa are newly-recruited Privates Arthur Wilkinson and Richard Lowe; members of C Company, 1/24th Regiment of Foot under the venerable Captain Reginald Younghusband. Eager for adventure, they are prepared to do their duty both for the Empire and for their friends. As Frere’s ultimatum expires, the army of British redcoats and allied African auxiliaries crosses the uMzinyathi River at Rorke’s Drift into Zululand. Ten days later, the British and Zulus will meet their destiny at the base of a mountain called Isandlwana.

World Serial Killers by Country (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Leaders of the USSR described their environment as a "Socialist Paradise," claiming that it was entirely free of "decadent Western crimes" such as racketeering and serial murder.

Sadly, they were wrong. Dead wrong.

In fact, the Soviet Union had yet to be born on paper when its first known serial killer surfaced. He was Vasili Ivanovich Komaroff, dubbed "The Wolf of Moscow," a horse trader who, with wife Sophia, killed at least 33 victims between 1921 and 1923. The couple's efficient modus operandi involved luring male customers to their stable where Vasili plied them with vodka, slit their throats or bludgeoned them with hammers, robbed their corpses, and placed their bodies in trash bags for burial or dumping into the Moscow River.

Serial murder occurred in Russia's "Socialist Paradise” like it did everywhere else in the world and it continues unabated to the present day.

Iron Curtain Killers presents 26 cases of Russian serial killing, recorded from the 1960s into the 21st century. Law enforcement may no longer deny that such crimes occur in Russia, but as we shall see, sadly they fall short of solving many serial murder cases.

Michael Newton is author of the International Bestseller, The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers (Facts on File Crime Library) and over 300 more books (True Crime and Western Novels)

Slave Narrative Six Pack Boxset (7 Book Series)
From Book 1: The slave narrative is a literary sub-genre that emerged from the written accounts of enslaved Africans in Great Britain and its colonies, including the later United States, Canada, and Caribbean nations. Some of the earliest memoirs of captivity known in England and the British Isles were written by white Europeans and later Americans captured and sometimes enslaved in North Africa, usually by Barbary pirates. These were part of a broad category of "captivity narratives" by English-speaking Europeans.

For the Europeans and Americans, the division between captivity as slaves and as prisoners of war was not always clear. A broader name for these works is "captivity literature."

Slave Narrative Six Pack presents six of the most famous examples of the genre:

Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup
Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation in 1838-1839 by Frances Anne Kemble
The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, Or Gustavus Vassa, The African by Olaudah Equiano
The Life of William H. Furness by William Still
Captain Canot; or, Twenty years of an African slaver: being an account of his career and adventures on the coast, in the interior, on shipboard, and in the West Indies by Brantz Mayer

Includes image gallery and link to free audio recording of Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

Mean Streets Police Books (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: The Mean Streets Book Series are a warning. It will show you what happens when unscrupulous politicians gain control of a highly-disciplined national Police Force and there is no “Bill of Human Rights” to stop them from implementing the country’s laws. No matter how unfair the laws may be or no matter what opposition is faced, these police officers will not turn a blind eye or walk away. Walking away is not what they do, they will react in kind every time and violently if needs be. The men were feared with good reason, they were brutally effective and true to their traditions, yet they also showed kindness and saved life, unrecognized at times. The various Mean Streets Books were read by many, criticized by some and loved by a lot more. They deal with the service years of the author in the South African Police Force between 1985 - 1991, the last few years before Mr. Nelson Mandela is released and just after. The South African Police Force had almost nothing in common with a Sheriff's Department or the “Bobby on the Beat” – think Marines with police powers and you are closer to the truth. The highly-trained policemen were fighting terrorists as mechanized infantry besides being policemen, dealing with “normal” crime in between. The statistics show that 90% of all terrorists were killed by the South African Police Force, not the Army, 98% of all terrorists inside South Africa died by police bullets. The Police also had more, a decade more, experience in counter insurgency, learning their trade during the Rhodesian Bush War. Their daily duties involved dealing with vicious and brutal crime, counter terrorism, counter insurgency and full scale riots, depending where they were. This, the first book in the Series, is an honest and unconventional account of the author's basic training and other events at the South African Police College in Pretoria. It is not a mere police biography but a much deeper look on how an honorable police force became an “instrument of terror,” mostly because of politics way above the policemen’s pay grade. Some will be upset by the contents but there are many humorous anecdotes as well. A fascinating account that needs to be read.
