Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Better to live without love and keep her secrets. Warrior Shawn McMannus only knows the fighting life. Whether it’s on the battlefield in Ireland of the past or in the ring as part of an underground fight club in present-day New Hampshire, he delivers a pounding to his opponents. Until his brother persuades him to try another way in the werewolf-friendly woods of Vermont. The pull of the pack is strong even if becoming a werewolf hadn’t been Shawn’s choice. Leaving the only lass to ever have cared for him, however, was his choice. Sculptor Jessica Fairheart can’t understand why Shawn left. She’d saved his life after a horrible accident, helped him recover from the loss of his leg, and loved him more than she’d ever loved anyone else. None of that had stopped him from walking out on her though. He probably would have ended up leaving anyway… if he had found out what she was. Better to live without love and keep her secrets. When Shawn’s brother contacts Jessica, she can’t resist going to Vermont to see Shawn. Maybe she can’t deny her feelings. Maybe she just wants answers. Maybe she wants another chance, but does Shawn?

Download PDF Himmler's SS Book by Robin Lumsden Full eBook and published by The History Press. This book was released on 2009-04-01 with total page 385 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The real story of the SS, unlike its popular mythology, is so complex as to almost defy belief: it is a tale of intrigue and nepotism, of archaeology and Teutonism, of art and symbolism. Himmler's SS is a story of street fighters and convicted criminals becoming Ministers of State and police commanders; the story of charitable works and mass extermination being administered from the same building; the story of boy generals directing vast heterogeneous armies on devastating campaigns of conquest. Here, indeed, fact is stranger than fiction. Himmler's SS looks at the wide-ranging effects that the SS had on the Police, racial policies, German history, education, the economy and public life, as well as the uniforms and regalia which were carefully designed to set Himmler's men apart as the new elite in Third Reich society. Fully illustrated, this book is an authoritative history of the SS and as such will appeal to all with an interest in Hitler's Third Reich.

Download PDF Young People and the Far Right Book by Pam Nilan Full eBook and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2021-05-10 with total page 145 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book looks at how young people get attracted to the Far Right, especially young white men. We may never know why a young individual ends up there, yet two things are obvious. First, Far Right propaganda appeals to the fantasy imagination and to the emotions. Second, supporting the Far Right is a decision often made by digitally-networked 15-25 year olds looking for answers and wanting to express their anger. However, many later become aware of a yawning gulf between the ideal future they envisioned, and what happens in the here and now. Accounts of the Far Right often focus on terrorist events, plots or extreme acts of violence. However, the emphasis here is on rather ordinary young people and how they get involved in a social movement that promises adventure and belonging. The aim is to better understand how their hate practices are framed and channeled by the persuasive discourse of the Far Right.

Download PDF The National States Rights Party Book by Michael Newton Full eBook and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2017-04-13 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Founded in 1958 by members of America's first postwar domestic Nazi-inspired movement, the National States Rights Party developed both as a political protest movement and as a vehicle of violent resistance to the black civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. Its acts of terrorism made international headlines and claimed multiple lives. Evidence suggests that Party members were involved in the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King. Officially dissolved in 1987, the National States Rights Party was revived in 2005 and one of its original founders remains active in racial agitation on the Internet.
Download PDF Assimilate Book by S. Alexander Reed Full eBook and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2013-06-03 with total page 376 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Industrial" is a descriptor that fans and critics have applied to a remarkable variety of music: the oildrum pounding of Einstürzende Neubauten, the processed electronic groans of Throbbing Gristle, the drumloop clatter of Skinny Puppy, and the synthpop songcraft of VNV Nation, to name just a few. But the stylistic breadth and subcultural longevity of industrial music suggests that the common ground here might not be any one particular sound, but instead a network of ideologies. This book traces industrial music's attitudes and practices from their earliest articulations--a hundred years ago--through the genre's mid-1970s formation and its development up to the present and beyond. Taking cues from radical intellectuals like Antonin Artaud, William S. Burroughs, and Guy Debord, industrial musicians sought to dismantle deep cultural assumptions so thoroughly normalized by media, government, and religion as to seem invisible. More extreme than punk, industrial music revolted against the very ideas of order and reason: it sought to strip away the brainwashing that was identity itself. It aspired to provoke, bewilder, and roar with independence. Of course, whether this revolution succeeded is another question... Assimilate is the first serious study published on industrial music. Through incisive discussions of musicians, audiences, marketers, cities, and songs, this book traces industrial values, methods, and goals across forty years of technological, political, and artistic change. A scholarly musicologist and a longtime industrial musician, S. Alexander Reed provides deep insight not only into the genre's history but also into its ambiguous relationship with symbols of totalitarianism and evil. Voicing frank criticism and affection alike, this book reveals the challenging and sometimes inspiring ways that industrial music both responds to and shapes the world. Assimilate is essential reading for anyone who has ever imagined limitless freedom, danced alone in the dark, or longed for more noise.
Download PDF The Swastika and Symbols of Hate Book by Steven Heller Full eBook and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2019-09-03 with total page 216 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Now revised & expanded, a study of how symbols can endure and influence life for good and evil for generations and never be redeemed, even today. A nuanced examination of the most powerful symbol ever created, The Swastika and Symbols of Hate explores the rise and fall of the symbol, its mysteries, co-option, and misunderstandings. Readers will be fascinated by the twists and turns of the swastika’s fortunes, from its pre-Nazi spiritual-religious and benign commercial uses, to the Nazi appropriation and criminalization of the form, to its contemporary applications as both a racist, hate-filled logo and ignorantly hip identity. Once the mark of good fortune, during the twentieth century it was hijacked and perverted, twisted into the graphic embodiment of intolerance. If you want to know what the logo for hate looks like, go no further. The Nazi swastika is a visual obscenity and provokes deep emotions on all sides. The Nazis weaponized this design, first as a party emblem, then as a sign of national pride and, ultimately, as the trademark of Adolf Hitler’s unremitting malevolence in the name of national superiority. A skilled propagandist, Hitler and his accomplices understood how to stoke fear through mass media and through emblems, banners, and uniforms. Many contemporary hate marks are rooted in Nazi iconography both as serious homage and sarcastic digital bots and trolls. Given the increasing tolerance for supremacist intolerance tacitly and overtly shown by politicians the world over, this revised (and reconfigured) edition includes additional material on old and new hate logos as it examines graphic design’s role in far-right extremist ideology today. “Force[s] even the most sophisticated to rethink and rework their ideas of how images work in the world.” —School Library Journal “Steven Heller, our foremost chronicler of graphic design, has aimed his sights at the most abominable logo of all, the swastika. In a world where visual symbols routinely migrate from context to context, from meaning to meaning, Heller uncovers the unparalleled history of an ancient symbol that, in the wake of its promotion by the Nazis, can no longer escape the gravity of its history.” —Stuart Ewen, author of All Consuming Images and PR!: A Social History of Spin “Heller masterfully unravels the tangled source of the swastika’s origin. His thoroughly researched account is supplemented by an extraordinary visual record that shows for the first time how this once spiritual symbol was transformed into an icon of hate.” —Victor Margolin, professor of design history, University of Illinois at Chicago

Download PDF BLACK SUN - the Mythological Background of National Socialism Book by Ian Tinny Full eBook and published by No Pledge Publishing. This book was released on with total page 473 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: BLACK SUN sheds new light on the sources of Nazi ideology by examining its occult roots in the world of myths, symbols, and fantasies. It traces this development from the writings of various mystics in the early 20th century who propagated the mythology of a superior global ideology whose heroes would fight the forces of moral decadence and greed. The book uses rare archival photographs and sources to chronicle how the Nazis used these mythological foundations to develop Nazism as a political religion. While BLACK SUN documents the nationalist mystical beliefs that infused National Socialism, the book also reveals the disturbing perpetuation of these beliefs among certain political groups today, in Germany and worldwide, reflecting an ongoing search for salvation, inspiration and messianic leaders. This eye-popping expose' juxtaposes the polarization in German national history between an obsession with capturing light in all its symbolic uses in order to battle the "darkness" of the Others. The final lesson that Black Sun implies -and what makes it a provocative and interesting book for a number of audiences, whether scholars and students of history, or iconography- is the danger of not knowing one's own history. In this sense, the title signals not only the recurrent theme of evil throughout history, but also the need to shed light upon all its manifestations.
Download PDF The Art of Verbal Warfare Book by Rik Smits Full eBook and published by Reaktion Books. This book was released on 2022-08-08 with total page 640 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A funny and fascinating exploration of our reliance upon swear words, insults, and the artfully placed expletive, damn it. We use salty or artful language to win arguments, slander, cheat, and bully, as well as to express feelings of joy or frustration by swearing or “blowing off steam.” Rik Smits delves into the magic of oaths and profanity, art and advertising, the lure of fake news and propaganda, as well as invective and off-color jokes the world over. This book shows why conversation dies in crowded elevators and what drives us to curse at our laptops. The Art of Verbal Warfare is, when all is said and done, the story of how we can get through life without coming to physical blows.
Download PDF AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH - The Planetary Emergency Book by Ian Tinny Full eBook and published by No Pledge Publishing. This book was released on with total page 496 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The planetary emergency is SOCIALISM. This book details the factors contributing to the growing crisis, describes changes to the world caused by global socialism, and discusses the shift in policy that is needed to avert disaster. One of the many inconvenient truths is that American socialists share in the guilt. Numerous annoying politicians have abetted a long history of American socialists, including the notorious Francis Bellamy and Edward Bellamy. Both Bellamy cousins wanted government to take over all schools, to teach socialism to all children. Francis Bellamy was the author of the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, the origin of the infamous stiff-armed salute adopted later under German socialism and Adolf Hitler. Long before the Deutschland fad began, American schoolchildren were taught to chant in unison and perform the same salute each day in government schools that imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy. Anyone who rejected the ritual in the schools was persecuted. This astonishing book explains the following revelations: 1. Hitler never self-identified as a "Nazi". 2. Hitler never self-identified as a 'Fascist'. 3. The term 'Nazi' never appears in "Mein Kampf" nor in "Triumph of he Will." 4. The term 'Fascist' never appears in Mein Kampf as a self-description by Hitler. 5. The term "Socialist" appears throughout Mein Kampf as a self-description by Hitler. Hitler and his followers self-identified as 'socialists' by the very word in voluminous speeches and writings. 6. Hitler used the swastika to represent 'S'-letter shapes for 'socialist'. 7. Hitler was influnenced by American socialists - the USA's Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was the origin of Nazi salutes and Nazi behavior. 8. A socialist started fascism. Before he coined the term 'Fascist,' Mussolini was a long-time socialist leader, with a socialist background, raised by socialists to be a socialist. 9. German socialists partnered with Soviet socialists to launch WWII, invading Poland together, and going onward from there, killing millions. Much of the amazing historical material comes from the archives of the historian Dr. Rex Curry.
