More > heard before a compliant magistrate.

The poems in Sum Lucid Beats are reminiscent of the Beat poets Shimberg admires. The subjects of his poems are varied, the style is modern. Shimberg's poetry displays both humor, levity and emotion... More > equal and balanced. Many poetry workshops, open mic's and retreats later. After failed attempts on the road, you will understand the depth of Shimberg's path and words. There is such a thing as post-modern beat poetry. I am a living example. I was not born in the era of Kerouac and Ginsberg. I studied under teachers who did. They passed on the knowledge. I spent 15 years constructing this book. My first poem was about a compulsive gambler. My second poem ever written was about an airplane ride that went slightly off course. My current poetry is not performance based, rather to be read quietly and enjoyed. I found notebooks and journals both handwritten and typed from the late 1990’s. They were just sitting there collecting dust in my childhood room. It took me several months to transcribe these by hand.< Less

План Сталина: Борьба за войну и против политики мира. 1927–1946. Книга 2 By Альберт Зейдель

The main focus of Book 2 of the trilogy is the events in the early period of the Great Patriotic War. The author proves that Stalin deliberately put the Red Army in the path of Hitler’s... More > devastating attack, with the aim of securing a German attack on the Soviet Union. The subsequent long retreat of the Red Army was not due to its weakness or inability to repel Hitler’s attack. It was a consequence of Stalin's planned defeat. A separate chapter is devoted to the events surrounding the execution of Polish prisoners of war by the NKVD in the Katyn Forest in the spring of 1940. A compelling examination leads to irrefutable proof that the execution at Katyn was directly connected to Stalin’s Plan for the future war and his preparations for Germany’s future attack on the USSR. The essence of his strategic aim will be revealed. The book will also answer the question as to why the veil of secrecy has not yet been lifted from the Katyn events.< Less
Ayurveda Mallorca By Diego Costello & Susil de Silva
Paperback: $23.87

Während der Antike und im Mittelalter bestanden nicht nur vielfältige Parallelen zwischen dem damals von Indien ausgehenden Ayurveda, der Alchimie Arabiens und der europäischen... More > Heilkunde, sondern auch wechselseitige Beziehungen und Beeinflussungen im Ringen um die besten Resultate und Rezepturen zum Heil der kranken, verletzten, gebrechlichen und alternden Menschen. Griechenland und Ägypten, sowie das Römische Reich erwiesen sich hier als Knotenpunkt und mit der fortschreitenden Christianisierung mündeten diese erfahrungsmedizinischen Kenntnisse und Lehren in die abendländische KlosterHeilkunde. Wer krank war oder verletzt wurde, zog sich in aller Regel ins nächste Kloster zurück und dort wurde ihm geholfen; ganzheitlich: an Körper, Geist und Seele. Neben der heute auch im Ayurveda aufgehobenen Phythotherapie sowie der Wasserheilkunde pflegten diese klösterlichen Hospitäler auch Fasten-Kuren, Schweige-Retreats und kontemplative Meditation zur Heilung und Seelsorge einzusetzen.< Less
От Севастополя до Берлина через Донскую излучину By ЛЕОН ТИПОГРАФ
Paperback: $4.99

If Leon Tipograf's story were a movie script, it would be deemed too preposterous for the screen. When the Germans invaded Crimea on June 22, 1942, Tipograf was a student at the Highest Military... More > Naval College. Entering the war as a naval officer, he was severely wounded. Gravely ill from the gunshot, and left behind by the retreating Soviet troops, he was found by Germans and taken prisoner. As a Soviet officer and a Jew behind the Nazi lines, he was in danger of being shot immediately… He escaped the camp, and survived only due to his cunning, resilience, courage and exceptional intelligence. He managed to travel across the countryside and join the Soviet army, concluding the war in Berlin. This remarkable saga would have made him a celebrity, but it was not heard by his contemporaries or his descendants. Only now, almost by a miracle, 70 years later has it come to light. L.M.Tipograf shares his memories of that momentous and monstrous period in history with gripping detail and stark clarity.< Less
