The Oxford World History of Empire Volume Two The History of Empires
Walter Scheidel, C. A. Bayly, Peter Fibiger Bang, "The Oxford World History of Empire: Volume Two: The History of Empires"
English | ISBN: 0197532764 | 2020 | PDF | 1352 pages | 101 MB
This is the first world history of empire, reaching from the third millennium BCE to the present. By combining synthetic surveys, thematic comparative essays, and numerous chapters on specific empires, its two volumes provide unparalleled coverage of imperialism throughout history and across continents, from Asia to Europe and from Africa to the Americas. Only a few decades ago empire was believed to be a thing of the past; now it is clear that it has been and remains one of the most enduring forms of political organization and power. We cannot understand the dynamics and resilience of empire without moving decisively beyond the study of individual cases or particular periods, such as the relatively short age of European colonialism. The history of empire, as these volumes amply demonstrate, needs to be drawn on the much broader canvas of global history.

The Oxford Handbook of Music and the Brain
The Oxford Handbook of Music and the Brain (Oxford Library of Psychology) edited by Donald A. Hodges, Michael H. Thaut
English | September 25, 2019 | ISBN: 0198804121, 0192895818 | EPUB/PDF | 848 pages | 7.6/6.6 MB
The study of music and the brain can be traced back to the work of Gall in the 18th century, continuing with John Hughlings Jackson, August Knoblauch, Richard Wallaschek, and others. These early researchers were interested in localizing musicality in the brain and learning more about how music is processed in both healthy individuals and those with dysfunctions of various kinds. Since then, the research literature has mushroomed, especially in the latter part of the 20th and early 21st centuries.



The Origins of Revisionist and Status-Quo States
J. Davidson, "The Origins of Revisionist and Status-Quo States"
English | 2006 | pages: 245 | ISBN: 1403971811 | PDF | 23,0 mb
Explaining why some states seek the status quo and others seek revision in international relations, Davidson argues that governments pursuing revisionist policies are responding to powerful domestic groups, such as nationalists and those in the military, that believe they can defeat their rivals. He draws on examples of France, Italy and Great Britain to enhance understanding of a fundamental source of instability in international affairs.

The Molecular Evolutionary Clock Theory and Practice
Simon Y. W. Ho, "The Molecular Evolutionary Clock: Theory and Practice"
English | ISBN: 3030601803 | 2020 | 257 pages | EPUB, PDF | 11 MB + 6 MB
This book presents coverage of the principles and practice of molecular clocks, which have provided fascinating and unprecedented insights into the evolutionary timescale of life on earth. It begins by following the early development of the molecular evolutionary clock in the 1960s, and leads to the complex statistical approaches that are now used to analyse genome sequences. The chapters of this book have been contributed by leading experts in the field and address the important issues of evolutionary rates, molecular dating, and phylogenomic analysis. This is the first time that these different aspects of the molecular clock have been brought together in a single, comprehensive volume. It is an invaluable reference for students and researchers interested in evolutionary biology, genetic analysis, and genomic evolution.



The Modern Mercenary Private Armies and What They Mean for World Order
Sean McFate, "The Modern Mercenary: Private Armies and What They Mean for World Order"
English | ISBN: 0190621087 | 2017 | 272 pages | PDF | 11 MB
It was 2004, and Sean McFate had a mission in Burundi: to keep the president alive and prevent the country from spiraling into genocide, without anyone knowing that the United States was involved. The United States was, of course, involved, but only through McFate's employer, the military contractor DynCorp International. Throughout the world, similar scenarios are playing out daily. The United States can no longer go to war without contractors. Yet we don't know much about the industry's structure, its operations, or where it's heading. Typically led by ex-military men, contractor firms are by their very nature secretive. Even the U.S. government-the entity that actually pays them-knows relatively little.
