Castello Ta' Lanzun By Tony C. Cutajar
Paperback: $14.98
Prints in 3-5 business days
The outbreak of the plague in 1676 not only was the worst in Malta’s history but lay bare the very soul of all the people at large, be they Knights, well-to-do or poor. The city of Bormla was... More > so very badly hit that half of its population got infected. Wenzu Lanzun lost his wife and three of his children and couldn’t bear to live in his alley house any longer with all its memories. To protect himself and his remaining son he sought greener pastures literally in San Ġiljan where he bought a farmhouse and started a new life. Little did he know that the Turkish pirates loved this quiet area and often climbed up the valley to see what they could lay their hands on, crops, animals and even people. Wenzu often found sheep or a cow missing and fearing for his life and that of his son he reinforced his property and turned it into a strong tower. Torri ta’ Lanzun is still extant and is under the patronage of the ancient and philanthropic Military and Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem.< Less
The Fool (Khenté): Armenian Edition By RAFFI
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The unforgettable tale of a man, a woman, and a nation divided. Written by Raffi, one of Armenia's most popular writers. Although not a novel of the Armenian Genocide of 1915-23 per se , Raffi's... More > masterpiece is as important to understanding the historical context of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire in the late 19th century as any history textbook. It can be argued that if Raffi's messages of Armenian self-sufficiency had been more widely heeded, the tragedies of the 1890s and 1915 might have turned out differently. It was originally published in 1881 and deals with the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78 long before the large-scale massacres began. Raffi called for action, unity, and self-reliance. Many of his criticisms of the Armenian community of the time are equally as applicable today as they were nearly 125 years ago. He foresaw what was in store for the Armenians if they did not actively seek to change their fate. Armenian Edition< Less
KRİSTAL DÜNYALAR By halit durucan
eBook (PDF): $3.99
Başımıza geleceklerden habersiz, göz açarız fani âleme. Geldiğinde başa bela; adı bazen kader, bazen ihmal olur. Ders alırız... More > hatalardan, tövbe ederiz kimi zaman. Hayatın sıfırıncı kilometresinde, yeni sürprizlere yelken açarız. Kötülüğün gölgesi düştüğünde üstümüze; titrer yüreğimiz. Tövbemize sadık kaldığımızda; bebeksi gülüşümüz daim kalır yüzümüzde. Fitne-fesat arasında şaşırsak ta; kalp temizliğidir mühim olan. En ümitsiz anımızda; bir el hissederiz sağ omzumuzda; bizleri kötülükten çekiveren. Gün gelir, karşımızda belirir sahte suratlar. Meleksi gülümsemesi aldatır bizi. Attığında bizi dipsiz kuyuya; şeytani gülümsemesin-den anlarız aldatıldığımızı. İşte o an bir dost eli ararız çaresiz bakışlarla; çekip çıkarsın diye. Adımlarımız taşıdığında bedenimizi karanlığa; korkunun sesi çınlar kulağımızda. Azrail’in resmi düşer gözlerimize; felaket “geliyorum” dediği anda. Pişmanlık fayda etmez, son anda, son nefeste.."< Less

This chapter discusses three periods in the socio-economic history of Iran during the Mongol dominion, ranging from the twenties of the thirteenth century to the eighties of the fourteenth century.... More > In the Middle Ages invasions by conquering nomads of cultivated settled areas were normally devastative. The Saljuq conquest of Iran was accompanied by pillage and destruction. The destructive nature of the invasion of Khurāsān by the Oghuz of Balkh in the fifties of the twelfth century is notorious. The Mongol conquest took an equally heavy toll in Tabaristān (Māzandarān). The reforms of Ghazan and the temporary transfer of a leading political role in the State from the nomad Mongol-Turkish aristocracy to the Iranian civil bureaucracy made some economic improvement possible, especially in agriculture. The Mongol conquest had a great and in general evil influence on the economic development of Iran; it had much less influence on the social structure of the country.< Less
