The Red Atlas

release date: Oct 17, 2017
The Red Atlas
From 1950 to 1990, the Soviet Army conducted a global topographic mapping program, creating large-scale maps for much of the world that included a diversity of detail that would have supported a full range of military planning. For big cities like New York, DC, and London to towns like Pontiac, MI and Galveston, TX, the Soviets gathered enough information to create street-level maps. What they chose to include on these maps can seem obvious like locations of factories and ports, or more surprising, such as building heights, road widths, and bridge capacities. Some of the detail suggests early satellite technology, while other specifics, like detailed depictions of depths and channels around rivers and harbors, could only have been gained by actual Soviet feet on the ground. The Red Atlas includes over 350 extracts from these Cold War maps, exploring their provenance and cartographic techniques as well as what they can tell us about their makers and the Soviet initiatives that were going on all around us.

Fragment of Truth

release date: Feb 28, 2015
Fragment of Truth
An ancient prediction will rock the modern world... Almost six thousand years ago – before the wheel, before paper – sages predicted that in the 6th part of the 6th millennium humanity would begin to tap into a well of infinite wisdom. The prediction was recorded in the Zohar, an ancient 13th century writing containing the words of sages from millennia past. Hazael, his grandfather Aaron and a Buddhist monk Vajrayogini dedicate their lives to studying and analyzing mathematical structures within these texts, certain that at a point in time sophisticated computers will be able to produce coherent patterns of information that will resolve into a beautifully simple explanation of our raison d’etre. At the point where some clarity becomes apparent, Vajrayogini co-opts two additional mathematicians, Jewish and Muslim, to help them fast track the project. Their groundbreaking work is to air publicly for the first time at an international conference in Jerusalem. But is the world ready for what the texts have to say? Fragment of Truth is a thrilling work of adult fiction that begins in 1948 but concerning the present day and the imminent future.

A Pint-Sized Whisperer
Author John Davies offers the latest in his growing portfolio of fiction novels and presents his sixth book under the prestigious Trafford publishing banner. Like many authors in the past, John Davies has chosen a moment in his writing career to put the power of the pen to a worthy cause. For instance, Charles Dickens exposed the horrors of the Victorian debtors'' prison to which his father was incarcerated. John opens up the can of worms that is endemic in certain sections of the NHS of persuading unfortunate pregnant women to terminate their fetus when told it is likely to be born with Down''s syndrome. An appalling pressure at a sensitive time of their life without even attempting to present an alternative. It is a vibrant book that will make readers think carefully about what stance they will take on this controversial topic of the twenty-first century. Previous novels by John Davies and published by Trafford Publishing are the following: Lorenzo''s Legacy, 2007; Inseperable, 2008; Gargantuan Gigolo, 2009; La Pasionara, 2010; Spain''s Savage Samurai, 2011. All are available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble. Also available in e-book format for Amazon''s Kindle.

'My Name is Not Natasha'

release date: Jan 01, 2009
'My Name is Not Natasha'
This book challenges every common presumption that exists about the trafficking of women for the sex trade. It is a detailed account of an entire population of trafficked Albanian women whose varied experiences, including selling sex on the streets of France, clearly demonstrate how much the present discourse about trafficked women is misplaced and inadequate. The heterogeneity of the women involved and their relationships with various men is clearly presented as is the way women actively created a panoptical surveillance of themselves as a means of self-policing. There is no artificial divide between women who were deceived and abused and those who "choose" sex work; in fact the book clearly shows how peripheral involvement in sex work was to the real agenda of the women involved. Most of the women described in this book were not making economic decisions to escape desperate poverty nor were they the uneducated nave entrapped into sexual slavery. The women''s success in transiting trafficking to achieve their own goals without the assistance of any outside agency is a testimony to their resilience and resolve.

Lorenzo''s Legacy is a work of fiction. Most of the characters, incidents and dialogues are products of the author''s imagination. Lucky Luciano was a real person and the world''s number one mobster. It was true that he was serving a 30-50 year jail sentence when the USA government released him and exiled him for life to his homeland of Italy in 1946. History does not record that the Mafia''s boss of bosses ever spawned a bastard son by the name of Lorenzo while in exile. If he had this is the legacy he might have left his unfortunate offspring. It is a tale of gory gang murders, drug trafficking, brothel keeping, smuggling, bank heists and child abuse at an orphanage run by Franciscan monks. Lorenzo became a hoodlum just like the notorious father who disowned him - Lucky Luciano.

Safety Management

release date: May 15, 2003
Safety Management
Professionals striving for accident reduction must deal with systems in which both technical and human elements play equal and complementary roles. However, many of the existing techniques in ergonomics and risk management concentrate on plant and technical issues and downplay human factors and "subjectivity." Safety Management: A Qualitative Systems Approach describes a body of theories and data that addresses safety by drawing on systems theory and applied psychology, stressing the importance of human activity within systems. It explains in detail the central roles of social consensus and reliability and the nature of verbal reports and functional discourse. This text presents a new approach to safety management, offering a path to both greater safety and to economic savings. It presents a series of methodological tools that have proven to be reliable through extensive use in the rail and nuclear industries. These methods allow organizational and systems failures to be analyzed much more effectively in terms of quantity, precision, and usefulness. The concepts and tools described in this book are particularly valuable for reliability engineers, risk managers, human factors specialists, and safety managers and professionals in safety-critical organizations.

Beyond Pluto

release date: Jul 19, 2001
Beyond Pluto
In the ten years preceding publication, the known solar system more than doubled in size. For the first time in almost two centuries an entirely new population of planetary objects was found. This ''Kuiper Belt'' of minor planets beyond Neptune revolutionised our understanding of the solar system''s formation and finally explained the origin of the enigmatic outer planet Pluto. This is the fascinating story of how theoretical physicists decided that there must be a population of unknown bodies beyond Neptune and how a small band of astronomers set out to find them. What they discovered was a family of ancient planetesimals whose orbits and physical properties were far more complicated than anyone expected. We follow the story of this discovery, and see how astronomers, theoretical physicists and one incredibly dedicated amateur observer came together to explore the frozen boundary of the solar system.

The Republic of Plato, Translated Into English

release date: Dec 27, 2016
The Republic of Plato, Translated Into English
The Republic of Plato is the longest of his works with the exception of the Laws, and is certainly the greatest of them. There are nearer approaches to modern metaphysics in the Philebus and in the Sophist; the Politicus or Statesman is more ideal; the form and institutions of the State are more clearly drawn out in the Laws; as works of art, the Symposium and the Protagoras are of higher excellence. But no other Dialogue of Plato has the same largeness of view and the same perfection of style; no other shows an equal knowledge of the world, or contains more of those thoughts which are new as well as old, and not of one age only but of all. Nowhere in Plato is there a deeper irony or a greater wealth of humor or imagery, or more dramatic power. Nor in any other of his writings is the attempt made to interweave life and speculation, or to connect politics with philosophy. The Republic is the centre around which the other Dialogues may be grouped; here philosophy reaches the highest point to which ancient thinkers ever attained. Plato among the Greeks, like Bacon among the moderns, was the first who conceived a method of knowledge, although neither of them always distinguished the bare outline or form from the substance of truth; and both of them had to be content with an abstraction of science which was not yet realized. He was the greatest metaphysical genius whom the world has seen; and in him, more than in any other ancient thinker, the germs of future knowledge are contained. The sciences of logic and psychology, which have supplied so many instruments of thought to after-ages, are based upon the analyses of Socrates and Plato. The principles of definition, the law of contradiction, the fallacy of arguing in a circle, the distinction between the essence and accidents of a thing or notion, between means and ends, between causes and conditions; also the division of the mind into the rational, concupiscent, and irascible elements, or of pleasures and desires into necessary and unnecessary - these and other great forms of thought are all of them to be found in the Republic, and were probably first invented by Plato. The greatest of all logical truths, and the one of which writers on philosophy are most apt to lose sight, the difference between words and things, has been most strenuously insisted on by him, although he has not always avoided the confusion of them in his own writings. But he does not bind up truth in logical formulae, - logic is still veiled in metaphysics; and the science which he imagines to "contemplate all truth and all existence" is very unlike the doctrine of the syllogism which Aristotle claims to have discovered. Plato is most true to the character of his master when he describes him as "not of this world." And with this representation of him the ideal State and the other paradoxes of the Republic are quite in accordance, though they can not be shown to have been speculations of Socrates. To him, as to other great teachers both philosophical and religious, when they looked upward, the world seemed to be the embodiment of error and evil. The common sense of mankind has revolted against this view, or has only partially admitted it. And even in Socrates himself the sterner judgment of the multitude at times passes into a sort of ironical pity or love. Men in general are incapable of philosophy, and are therefore at enmity with the philosopher; but their misunderstanding of him is unavoidable: for they have never seen him as he truly is in his own image; they are only acquainted with artificial systems possessing no native force of truth - words which admit of many applications. Their leaders have nothing to measure with, and are therefore ignorant of their own stature. Leaving the characters we may now analyze the contents of the Republic, and then proceed to consider: (1) The general aspects of this Hellenic ideal of the State, (2) The modern lights in which the thoughts of Plato may be read.

Blakes Heaven

Blakes Heaven
Vila: "Where are all the good guys?" Blake: "You may be looking at them." Avon: "What a depressing thought." For four years after the release of the first Star Wars movie, British viewers were able to follow the fortunes of an even more unlikely - and often unlikeable - band of rebels: Blake''s 7. While very rarely a numerically accurate title, the stirring music that accompanied it signalled to a generation of young adults living in the aftermath of punk, that Blake and his cohorts were about to stick it to The Man (the man being Servalan, leader of the corrupt and unscrupulous Federation). And over thirty years later, Blake''s 7 is, just like Blake himself, the series that refuses to die. If Blake''s 7 was your escape-valve from the strike-struck 1970s - or even if it wasn''t - if Servalan''s is the face that keeps you awake at night - or even if it isn''t - or if you''ve simply discovered the series in the years since, as a rather grittier, meatier and maybe even more ridiculous alternative to Babylon 5, then this is the book you''ve been waiting for. From all over the globe, fans and their friends have compiled a series of essays that illustrate the lure, appeal and charm of the show - in a very open, honest and personal way. This is not an episode guide. It is far, far more than that. Are you ready to teleport? 100% of the royalties from this title will be donated to Children in Need.

The First Vampire

release date: Sep 30, 2014
The First Vampire
In his riveting debut novel, The First Vampire, John Davies provides an alarmingly plausible explanation of why and how the first human was transformed into a vampire, against a backdrop of factual Eastern European history. In 1414, a priest and gifted singer from the Curtea de Arges region of Wallachia unknowingly set a chain of events in motion, which had the potential to cause catastrophic ramifications for centuries after. Forty-eight years later, Vlad Dracula returned home to Curtea de Arges after a great battle in which he slaughtered fifteen thousand Muslims. Triumph turned to tragedy when he learned that his turncoat brother, Radu, was lurking in the region. Dracula was about to face his greatest nemesis ever. Twenty-first-century, reluctant college sophomore, Kristi Johnson, is in a desperate race against time to save her family from complete disintegration. Her father commits the ultimate unspeakable act, and Kristi is forced to find answers immediately. Out of nowhere comes an unexpected possible solution—in the form of her unusual classmate, Alex. The paths of the priest, the warlord, and the college kid are set on the collision course from hell in this fascinating blend of history, myth, and undying love.

Llunio Cymru
The landscape of Wales has been shaped by man over many centuries and continues to develop today. In both town and countryside, at least 200 generations of human beings have left layer upon layer of impressions, so that at almost any point in Wales it is possible to look out and gaze upon a rich palimpsest. The Making of Wales traces the process of this evolution in the Welsh landscape from pre-history to the present day. From the earliest hunter-gatherers who made their mark on the landscape over 12,000 years ago, we follow the makers as they became farmers using the first stone, then bronze and iron tools and weapons, and creating the massive hillforts that are such a feature of the Welsh countryside; the transition to Roman rule and the origins of town-making; the fundamental influence of Christianity on the makers of Wales; the impact of the castle-building Normans; the transformation of a largely rural country during the industrial centuries; the impact of war and depression in the early twentieth century; through to the struggle and victory of devolution in Wales. Lavishly illustrated, The Making of Wales is a superb introduction to the history of the country and to the enduring legacy of man''s interaction with the landscape.
