Smiffys Women's Red High Priestess Costume
S$ 87.70
HalloweenCostumes
Priestesses of any faith are an enigmatic figure and a potentially frightening one, too. They speak with conviction and certainty. They command respect, even amidst their enemies. And, occasionally, they call upon mighty powers that those who witness can only speculate from where it comes. Even when they speak of their mighty lord, their one god, their flaming prince or emperor of light, we are all left wondering if this priestess is truly a proxy for such a powerful divine being or if they are somehow enacting a trick instead of a miracle.No matter what they are doing, it is hard to argue with that dominating eye. Ultimately, we find ourselves following wherever we are bad. We may achieve tasks that we do not understand for goals that we’ll never be fully explained. All the while, we wait in desperate hope that we will once again see evidence of the priestess’s divine power. Or, perhaps, we do as she commands out of the terrified hope that we will never again see her unleash her strange and exotic magic.No matter what your followers choose to believe, all that is important is that they have faith in you as you have faith in your calling. For you are become like unto a lord of light when you step into this Red High Priestess costume. This lovely and powerful red v-neck pullover gown has a fitted bodice with elegantly flared, hanging sleeves, giving you the noble look that you have earned while the brocade ribbon belt bound around your waist shows a blend of humble means and divine wrath. The crushed velvet cape with faux leather flaps will keep you warm in the chill winter… as though you ever feared the cold while alongside your flame! This may be enough or perhaps you seek some skull or divine ornament accessories, or even a vivid red wig to complete your holy look.

Smiffys Women's Fever Cavewoman Costume
S$ 47.20
HalloweenCostumes
You've traveled back to an era long, long ago in the past (probably about one million years B.c., give or take...), when humans, dinosaurs, woolly mammoths, and sabertooth tigers walked the planet together -- and not always peacefully. It was a time when all that people had to keep them warm against the elements (remember, the only heat came from fires) were leopard skins and sweet mammoth-fur boots. As hard as it was, the cavemen and women looked absolutely fantastic in their duds. So, when in Rome, right? You can be sure that they'll welcome you into any cave you take shelter in when they see you in this Women's Fever Cavewoman Costume!You're look every bit the prehistoric queen when you suit up in this head-turning Stone Age outfit. The curve-hugging halter dress has that classic leopard print and a jagged, uneven hemline for a truly "wild" look (because we're pretty sure they didn't have tailors or seamstresses back then!). The arm band and the head band (which fits easily and comfortably thanks to the modern wonders of elastic, but your cave friends won't know the difference) matches the dress and proves that paleolithic folk knew how to color-coordinate! And for true head-to-toe coverage, the costume also includes a pair of awesome leg warmers. Don't worry, you can just explain to your new tribe that they came from a species of majestic creatures called "faux," which haven't evolved yet.So to make the most out of your adventure into the time before time, be sure that you're seen by cavemen and dinosaurs alike in this incredible Women's Fever Cavewoman Costume! Because who says prehistory has to be lacking in style?

Plus, it comes with most of the other things you need to look like the flashiest deity in all of classical mythology.In fact, it’s got everything except an ancient-looking beard and a pair of sandals—which you may want, because we don’t think they’ve ever bothered to lay down plush carpet on the top of Mt. Olympus. But Zeus can go barefoot! He probably has some gnarly calluses from power walking to the Acropolis and back for his morning cardio.But why are we talking about feet when this divine outfit is going to make you feel like you’re crackling with energy?

Smiffys Cleopatra Girls Costume
S$ 40.50
HalloweenCostumes
Do you see the characteristics of an epic leader in your daughter? Do you ever wonder where she gets these fabulous plots that she seems to hatch? And what about that air of grace and pride that always seems to follow her around, where did that come from? Maybe your daughter was the iconic Queen Cleopatra in a former life. Cleopatra has been remembered throughout history for a reason. She took the throne with her brother from a very young age and though her court didn't expect her to start making decisions, like the teens of today, she kind of thought she knew everything already. She soon was ruling without her brother, calling shots near and far. Ever resourceful, when she was forced to leave Egypt, instead of giving up the throne she had herself rolled into a rug and sent to Caesar to ask him to help a Queen out. Of course, he complied. In this white satin dress, your little royal would gain an alliance with Rome in no time. The gold detail encrusted with jewels would make it obvious that Cleopatra is the rightful ruler on the Egyptian throne, ruler of the pyramids, sovereign of the Nile. The light mesh on the hips and arms gives the dress the breezy feel needed for those hot Egyptian days. Your girl will be ready for her throne in those marble halls when she puts on her Cleopatra ensemble. This Halloween, it's time to take a break from the yearly princess gig and let your wise daughter turn into the powerful ruler you always knew was there.

Growing up in Arkham, you hear things. Ghost stories wrapped in magickal moon lore with a heaping helping of elder gods and forbidden books, all swapped between boys and girls over dwindling campfires. We collected alternate histories like kids on TV traded baseball cards. As a child of Arkham, you just took for granted you lived in a special town, but seeing that difference up close and personal, in the place where you gave up evenings and weekends so college admissions might think you were well-rounded and responsible, well, seeing that kind of truth was an awful big shock."- "Arkquarium" by Folly BlaineMad Scientist Journal has brought together eighteen tales of people who have either lived in this strange corner of New England or had the misfortune of visiting. Mixed in with nods to classic Lovecraft icons are stories that bring a new eye to the genre. Tales of horse drawn carriages share space with orbital shuttles, alternate worlds, and football. Included in this collection are Sanford Allen, Brandon Barrows, Folly Blaine, Darin M. Bush, Kelda Crich, Nathan Crowder, Erik Scott de Bie, Sean Frost, Phil Gonzales, Brian Hamilton, Samuel Marzioli, Erick Mertz, Craig D.b. Patton, Jenna M.

Historical Dictionary of the British and Irish Civil Wars 1637-1660
S$ 129.70 S$ 144.00
Kobo
When a large number of the people in Scotland rejected King Charles I's religious policy, they set in motion a train of events that resonated throughout England, Wales, and Ireland and challenged the rule of the king. Between 1637 and 1660 the British Isles were embroiled in a series of wars, rebellions, and revolutions that affected not only all the political and social institutions within them, but all of the people living there. Radical changes in the political relationships within the four nations sparked a series of wars that brought far-reaching political revolution. By spring 1649 the king had been executed, the monarchy abolished in England and Wales, and a republic established. The 1650s saw Scotland and Ireland incorporated into the republic as the wars finally ended. The republic had a brief life but by 1660 it was ended and the monarchy restored, the united nation established in 1653 was again broken into its component parts, and the old institutions seemingly returned to preeminence. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of the British and Irish Civil Wars 1637-1660 contains a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 700 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, and military technology, as well as descriptions of the battles of the war. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about this period in history.

Mission Command: Historical Roots of Mission Command in U.S. Army - Analysis of Generals Zachary Taylor, Ulysses S. Grant, and Pershing, Civil War, Vicksburg Campaign, World War I Expeditionary Forces
S$ 9.60
Kobo
This excellent report has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. Mission orders as described in ADP 6-0, are the foundation of mission command, because it sets the tone of a command climate. Mission orders tell a subordinate what to do and why he is doing it, but does not tell him how. By not telling a subordinate how to do something they can better account for and deal with the friction and fog of war to accomplish the commander's intent. ADP 6-0 Mission Command published in September 2012 lays out principles and tasks for commanders and staffs to prepare orders, and to execute command and control operations. ADP 6-0 states that army mission command comes from the German concept of Auftragstaktik. This study analyzes the U.s. Army's historical examples of mission command in using three distinctly different American general officers from three separate periods of American military history. Mission command existed in the American army prior to the Prussian army of the mid to late nineteenth century and the US Army's formal adoption of mission command in the 1980. Analysis of the military careers of Generals Zachary Taylor, Ulysses S. Grant, and John J. Pershing shows these military commanders successfully displayed a mission command style of command. To conduct this analysis a short biography that shapes the traits, personality, and education of the general is important along with a description of the military environment of their respective period. These two important aspects place in context the detailed analysis of how they applied mission command to achieve operational and strategic success through military means. Historical examples of mission command educate leaders and provide tools to draw from, so they can effectively lead soldiers in combat when a lack of combat experience exists. American commanders applied mission command throughout all conflicts the United States has participated in, and it began prior to German

We don't remember much from history class. We're pretty sure dragons existed at some point in time and we know that there were a few wars here and there, but beyond that, we spent most of our time doodling sweet pictures of bubble letters and the occasional bumblebee during class.Had we paid attention during history, the teacher probably would have taught us something about the French Revolution and we probably would have learned about Marie Antoinette's rise to glory and then fall from fame. As it stands though, we mostly just care about stylish dresses based on her, since historically accurate clothing is always kind of drab anyways. And we found this saucy number to fit our needs perfectly!This Deluxe Marie Antoinette Costume takes all the class and elegance of the historical French Queen and mixes it with a stunning modern style that's sure to make you famous at your next costume party.

Films recreating or addressing 'the past' - recent or distant, actual or imagined - have been a mainstay of British cinema since the silent era. From Elizabeth to Carry On Up The Khyber, and from the heritage-film debate to issues of authenticity and questions of genre, British Historical Cinema explores the ways in which British films have represented the past on screen, the issues they raise and the debates they have provoked. Discussing films from biopics to literary adaptations, and from depictions of Britain's colonial past to the re-imagining of recent decades in retro films such as Velvet Goldmine, a range of contributors ask whose history is being represented, from whose perspective, and why.

British cinema has been around from the very birth of motion pictures, from black-and-white to color, from talkies to sound, and now 3D, it has been making a major contribution to world cinema. Many of its actors and directors have stayed at home but others ventured abroad, like Charlie Chaplin and Alfred Hitchcock. Today it is still going strong, the only real competition to Hollywood, turning out films which appeal not only to Brits, just think of Bridget Jones, while busily adding to franchises like James Bond and Harry Potter. So this Historical Dictionary of British Cinema has a lot of ground to cover. This it does with over 300 dictionary entries informing us about significant actors, producers and directors, outstanding films and serials, organizations and studios, different films genres from comedy to horror, and memorable films, among other things. Two appendixes provide lists of award-winners. Meanwhile, the chronology covers over a century of history. These parts provide the details, countless details, while the introduction offers the big story. And the extensive bibliography points toward other sources of information.

Historical Dictionary of Albania

Albania is not well known by outsiders; it was deliberately closed to the outside world during the communist era. Now it has thankfully become free again, its borders are open and it can be visited, and it is increasingly integrating with the rest of Europe and beyond. Unfortunately, Albania has had its share of problems in the post-communist era; it's a land of destitution and despair, thanks in part to the Albanian mafia, which has turned the country into one of blood-feuds, kalashnikovs, and eternal crises. Yet, Albania is, in essence, a European nation like any other and will soon, it is to be hoped, advance and take its proper place in Europe and the world. The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Albania relates the history of this little-known country through a detailed chronology, an introduction, a bibliography, appendixes, and over 700 cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant persons, places, and events; institutions and organizations; and political, economic, social, cultural, and religious facets.

America's very first president was a man who could never tell a lie. It has been said that after young George cut down a nearby cherry tree he couldn't tell anyone he didn't. People would ask the future commander-in-chief about the tree and sure enough he would always say "I cannot tell a lie, I cut down that tree." Then people would look at the stump and see that it was badly chopped down, so it was determined that George Washington would never be a lumberjack. This meant he would join the army and later on become the first president of the United States. Now your child can pretend to be this political and historical icon!

If you ever find yourself in the midst of a gladiator battle, it doesn't really matter who's fighting. The only thing that matters is that you are quicker with your sword than everyone else! Strap on this Roman Gladiator Costume, and secure your place as a legend of the arena! When squaring off against opponents in a battle to the death, if you don't come in first place, then you might as well be last. You have to possess the discipline and skill of a solider, and combine it with the guile and instincts of an outlaw. But, since the battles were also supposed to entertain the bored crowds of Ancient Rome (they were basically the reality shows of the day, with less singing, but just as much backstabbing), the fighters also had to look cool as they fought. So, gladiators donned ornate costumes and armor, and put on a big, bloody show for everyone. Does your job suddenly not seem so bad? As weird as it sounds, though, doesn't it still seem a little exciting to put on the garb of a gladiator and defend your title as the best warrior in the realm? Luckily, this historically inspired costume lets you do that without actually having to fight, but it still looks spectacular and fearsome! The skirt and bodice have the look of leather armor, with a flowing dress to give you plenty of eye catching flair. Add any additional arms and armor you'll need to be victorious, like fierce boots or sandals, gauntlets, and of course, a trusty sword and shield. You will forever be remembered as a champion of the Colosseum! Or, at least a champion of the costume party.

What is a girl’s best friend, asks a number of songs? Well, the quick answer tends to be the shimmer and glimmer of diamonds. They represent beauty, internal brilliance, and the sort of longevity and lasting power that falls right within the idea of eternity. But, ultimately, they are only gemstones. Diamonds might be pretty impressive, but they lack the real vivid color and life that hits what a gal really needs. How can they possibly compare when put toe-to-toe with the idea of the ultimate authority of divine mandated rule!?That’s the question posed to the most famously beautiful ruler of all time, Cleopatra. And what is the biggest problem with leading a massive country full of people just drooling over your magnanimous power? Well, looking amazing certainly isn’t the problem. If anything, such power and beauty only brings about the constant threat of betrayal and almost certain early death by assassination—often including truly unusual ways of bringing it about. We admit that dealing with murder plots isn’t a great aspect of the job description, but it at least makes for an eternal story for your subjects and enthusiasts hundreds of years later.So, it is now time to step up and claim your throne and make both Antony and Caesar roil with jealousy. Do so with this Nile Queen Cleopatra costume. This lovely black, polyester sheath dress is form fitting and has astounding contrast thanks to its aqua edging, gold and aqua armbands with long draping cloth that sings of the Nile, itself, and a sequined headband with lovely dangling beads and a bright faux gemstone in its center. The golden knit apron belt has a mystical scarab design in the same aqua tone that completes the balanced look. Complete your whole ensemble with a cobra staff or jeweled rings. (… Or an antidote phial, just in case some of your ‘allies’ bring in some serpents of their own!)

Do you like the idea of being a Viking, but hate the idea of fighting all the time? We know. Everyone seems to think that the Vikings are nothing but rough and tough savages who spend their time pillaging, but that's just simply not the case. The Vikings did have a softer side. Vikings wrote poetry, created beautiful tapestries and rune stones and they made sculptures. It's not like they were running around, grunting with axes in their hands 24-7! The softer side of of Vikings were in the details, and the stoic, yet gentle women of the Vikings.Don't get us wrong, Viking women could kick some serious butt. Shieldmaidens are proof of that, but we just wanted to explore the wear of an every day Viking girl, so we came up with this women's Peasant Viking costume. The outfit is based on what Norse women would have worn back in the Medieval times. The forest green dress has large bell sleeves for a historical look. It fits with a front, center zipper. Faux fur trim gives the dress a uniquely Medieval style and the orange twill tunic gives the costume a bright pop. A faux fur shawl adds an authentic look. Additional bead strands are included, which can be attached to the shawl. It's a great look for any kind of historical event, such as Renaissance festivals or Viking parties. Never heard of a Viking party? Okay, neither have we, but we imagine that a party with a Viking theme would be one pretty awesome party!

Historical Phases of Prophetic Teaching Volume IV
S$ 6.80 S$ 7.60
Kobo
In Volume IV the author, Evelyn Theresa Watson, compares the Revelator's words to scriptural and gospel prophecy verifying the doctrinal mystery and miracle that lie behind the religious warfare of past and present ages. Her commentary presents THE Revelation OF ST. John THE Divine as a treatise on the life and time of Jesus Christ as the messenger of the messianic message unto the seven churches. She attests to the Revelator's seven visions of revealed prophecy which retell the previous two thousand years of unfulfilled scriptural prophecy and foretell one hundred years of fulfilled gospel prophecy. The author correlates these two time periods to the nineteen hundred years of biblical prophecy that followed. The beginning of the twenty-first century marks the end times of the Bible's historical phases of prophetic teaching.

Historical Dictionary of Islam
S$ 132.40 S$ 147.10
Kobo
There is both unity and variety in the Islamic world. Muslims are not a homogeneous people who can be explained solely by their normative texts: the Koran and the Sunnah. Muslims differ vastly in their interpretation of Islam: modernists want to reinterpret Islam to adapt to the requirements of modern times while traditionalists tend to look to the classical and medieval periods of Islam as their model of the Islamic state. The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Islam presents a concise overview of Islamic history, religion, philosophy, and Islamic political movements. This is done through a list of abbreviations and acronyms, a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and cross-referenced dictionary entries, which include the biographies and thoughts of medieval thinkers, as well as those of modern members of the religious and political establishments. Articles describe the major sects, schools of theology, and jurisprudence, as well as aspects of Islamic culture. Together, this book represents a brief introduction to the field of Islamic studies.

Historical Dictionary of Russian and Soviet Intelligence
S$ 109.30 S$ 121.30
Kobo
At its peak, the KGB (Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti) was the largest secret police and espionage organization in the world. It became so influential in Soviet politics that several of its directors moved on to become premiers of the Soviet Union. In fact, Russian president Vladimir V. Putin is a former head of the Kgb. The GRU (Glavnoye Razvedyvatelnoe Upravlenie) is the principal intelligence unit of the Russian armed forces, having been established in 1920 by Leon Trotsky during the Russian civil war. The GRU was the first subordinate to the Kgb, and while the KGB broke up with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the GRU remains intact, cohesive, highly efficient, and with far greater resources than its civilian counterparts. These are just two of the long list of Russian and Soviet intelligence agencies that are covered in the Historical Dictionary of Russian and Soviet Intelligence. Through a list of acronyms and abbreviations, a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on organizations like the Oprichnina, Okhrana, Gpu, Nkvd, Kgb, Gru, Smersh, Svr, and Fsb, a clear picture of the history of this subject is presented. Entries also cover Soviet and Russian leaders, leading intelligence and security officers, the Lenin and Stalin purges, the Gulag, and noted espionage cases.

The Royal Life Guard, or, the Flight of the Royal Family: A Historical Romance of the Suppression of the French Monarchy
S$ 5.20 S$ 5.70
Kobo
France had been changed to a limited monarchy from an absolute one, and King Louis Xvi. had solemnly sworn to defend the new Constitution. But it had been remarked by shrewd observers that he had not attended the Te Deum at the Paris Cathedral, with the members of the National Assembly: that is, he would tell a lie but not commit perjury. The people were therefore on their guard against him, while they felt that his Queen, Marie Antoinette, the daughter of Austria, was ever their foe. But the murders by the rabble had frightened all property holders and when the court bought Mirabeau, the popular orator, over to its cause by paying his debts and a monthly salary the majority of the better classes, who had not fled from France in terror, thought the Royal Family would yet regain their own. In point of fact, Mirabeau had obtained from the House of Representatives that the King should have the right to rule the army and direct it and propose war, which the Assembly would only have the sanction of. He would have obtained more in the reaction after the Taking of the Bastile but for an unknown hand having distributed full particulars of his purchase by the royalists in a broadside given away by thousands in the streets.

Evangelical Faith and the Challenge of Historical Criticism

Chris Hays and Chris Ansberry engage in the courageous task of showing how evangelical scholars can soberly address the hot-potato issues in biblical scholarship, even appropriate many critical insights, without selling out on what evangelicals traditionally believe. The contributors systematically address big topics like Pentateuchal criticism, pseudepigraphy and canon, problems with prophecy, the historical Jesus, and exemplify what it means to practice a form of 'faithful criticism' when it comes to the Bible. This is the type of discussion on faith and criticism that evangelical scholarship has needed for years. Thankfully, an intellectually rigours and theologically sensitive approach to these matters is finally upon us!' Dr Michael Bird, Ridley Melbourne Ministry & Mission College, Australia

Historical Dictionary of Descartes and Cartesian Philosophy
S$ 146.10 S$ 182.60
Kobo
Descartes is perhaps most closely associated with the title, "the Father of Modern Philosophy." Generations of students have been introduced to the study of philosophy through a consideration of his Meditations on First Philosophy. His contributions to natural science is shown by the fact that his physics, as promulgated by the Cartesians, played a central role in the debates after his death over Isaac Newton's theory of gravitation. Descartes also made major contributions to the field of analytic geometry; we still speak today of "Cartesian coordinates" and the "Cartesian product."This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Descartes and Cartesian Philosophy covers the history through a chronology, an introductory essay, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 300 cross-referenced entries on various concepts in Descartes' philosophy, science, and mathematics, as well as biographical entries about the intellectual setting for Descartes' philosophy and its reception, both with Cartesians and anti-Cartesians.

Walter Ralegh's "History of the World" and the Historical Culture of the Late Renaissance
S$ 34.10 S$ 42.50
Kobo
Imprisoned in the Tower of London after the death of Queen Elizabeth in 1603, Sir Walter Ralegh spent seven years producing his massive History of the World. Created with the aid of a library of more than five hundred books that he was allowed to keep in his quarters, this incredible work of English vernacular would become a best seller, with nearly twenty editions, abridgments, and continuations issued in the years that followed. Nicholas Popper uses Ralegh's History as a touchstone in this lively exploration of the culture of history writing and historical thinking in the late Renaissance. From Popper we learn why early modern Europeans ascribed heightened value to the study of the past and how scholars and statesmen began to see historical expertise as not just a foundation for political practice and theory, but as a means of advancing their power in the courts and councils of contemporary Europe. The rise of historical scholarship during this period encouraged the circulation of its methods to other disciplines, transforming Europe's intellectual-and political-regimes. More than a mere study of Ralegh's History of the World, Popper's book reveals how the methods that historians devised to illuminate the past structured the dynamics of early modernity in Europe and England.

Kobo
African women's history is a vast topic that embraces a wide variety of societies in over 50 countries with different geographies, social customs, religions, and historical situations. Africa is a predominantly agricultural continent, and a major factor in African agriculture is the central role of women as farmers. It is estimated that between 65 and 80 percent of African women are engaged in cultivating food for their families, and in the past that percentage was likely even higher. Thus, one common thread across much of the continent is women's daily work in their family plot. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Women in Sub-Saharan Africa contains a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 700 cross-referenced entries on individual African women in history, politics, religion, and the arts; on important events, organizations, and publications; and on topics important to women in general (marriage, fertility, employment) and to African women in particular (market women, child marriage, queen mothers).

Partytime Costume & Lingerie (Yiwu) Factory Gladiator General Maximus Costume for Men
S$ 134.90
HalloweenCostumes
"What we do in life... echoes in eternity."So says General Maximus at the beginning of the classic Ridley Scott film, Gladiator. While that is some expertly written and memorable dialogue, we hope it's also a true statement. But we have no idea! What do we look like, metaphysicists?? We don't know what happens in eternity! But if our life echoes within it, we're glad you're taking a look at this officially licensed General Maximus costume, because it's epic enough to wear forever.The only thing we'd advise against is getting into any actual Roman battles wearing this thing. It's made of latex and not metal as it appears. That being said, you could probably frighten some barbarians with it, but we don't really recommend that either. That would require a costly trip to Germany, and also a time machine to around 180Ad. That's also where you'd have to go to get the real version of this armor. Since that technology doesn't exist, we think our version is an amazing first realistic choice!Since this costume has incredible details and quality (How about that realistic armor and fur trimmed cape? It's straight out of the movie!) we think you should go to a party, wait for the exact right moment, then step up into the spotlight and give an incredible, awe-inspiring speech to all your fellow party-goers. That's what Maximus would do! You'll be remembered in poetry and song as the greatest general Rome had ever seen... to give a rousing speech while holding a red Solo cup."Brothers! What we drink tonight... will echo in our bodies tomorrow, and possibly eternity!"*drink responsibly

An Historical Account of the Black Empire of Hayti
S$ 31.70 S$ 39.60
Kobo
As the first complete narrative in English of the Haitian Revolution, Marcus Rainsford's An Historical Account of the Black Empire of Hayti was highly influential in establishing nineteenth-century world opinion of this momentous event. This new edition is the first to appear since the original publication in 1805. Rainsford, a career officer in the British army, went to Haiti to recruit black soldiers for the British. By publishing his observations of the prowess of black troops, and recounting his meetings with Toussaint Louverture, Rainsford offered eyewitness testimonial that acknowledged the intelligence and effectiveness of the Haitian rebels. Although not an abolitionist, Rainsford nonetheless was supportive of the independent state of Haiti, which he argued posed no threat to British colonial interests in the West Indies, an extremely unusual stance at the time. Rainsford's account made an immediate impact upon publication; it was widely reviewed, and translated twice in its first year. Paul Youngquist's and Grégory Pierrot's critical introduction to this new edition provides contextual and historical details, as well as new biographical information about Rainsford. Of particular interest is a newly discovered miniature painting of Louverture attributed to Rainsford, which is reproduced along with the twelve engravings that accompanied his original account.

Historical Dictionary of Competitive Swimming
S$ 88.30 S$ 98.00
Kobo
Swimming has been an Olympic sport since the inception of the Games, with the 100, 400, and 1500 freestyles being the original events along with the 100 freestyle for sailors. While the spirit of the sport remains the same, the technology and the competitive formats have advanced tremendously through the years. The number of events contested in competition has increased to the point where the program for a typical international meet, such as the World Championships or Olympics, produces a true reflection of the best swimmers over various distances and in different strokes. The Historical Dictionary of Competitive Swimming examines the sport of swimming since its inception as a competitive athletic event. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and appendixes that detail Olympic and World Championships medal winners. The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries on individuals, major competitions, and there are also entries for each of the competitive strokes and countries that have enjoyed significant success in the sport.

Five Reasons Why Everyone Should Read History Books

History books are accounts of past happenings that occurred throughout human civilization which might have direct and indirect impact on how we live today. Living in this time of rapid change and constant technological development, many individuals today might find that history is no longer significant as we prefer to envision on where we are heading towards instead of reflecting on where we came from. However, there are still important values that we can learn from the history of mankind as we look forward into the future. Find out why everyone should still read history books below.

As Highly Detailed Accounts of Past Events

History books are one of the most important sources of information that we have regarding past events and occurrences. They give a highly-detailed account on a given event or period in history: more so than any documentary can give. Many present archaeologists and researchers are able to unravel important findings and ancient wonders today thanks to the thorough descriptions that were mentioned in these history books.

To Know More About Our Origins

Have you ever wondered why Singapore has a multi-racial population today? Through history books, you will have a better insight on why people of different races, religions, and culture settled down in Singapore. You will also find out other interesting facts such as what methods did they use to enter the country with and how did they made a living for themselves in a foreign land so far away from their motherland. Knowing these facts not only widens your general knowledge, but it also enables you to trace back your origins.

So That We Do Not Repeat Past Mistakes

Spanish philosopher, George Santayana once said, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. Throughout human history, countless mistakes were made by our forefathers and past leaders, many of which we can learn something from. Delving into history enables us to understand their failings, to learn from them, and to find ways to improve on their mistakes. Humans have a bad habit of making the same mistakes, hence history books serve as a reminder for us to not repeat similar mistakes again.

So That We Appreciate the Sacrifices of our Forefathers and Ancestors

Many lives were sacrificed throughout the countless wars and battles fought throughout human history. Many of our forefathers and ancestors probably had a part to play in those wars – expanding the glory and influence of their nation, defending their homeland from being conquered by foreign authorities, and so on. Their sacrifices are recorded in history books and by reading them, we will understand more about their valiant efforts and bravery which will allow us to appreciate the sacrifices they had made.

As Preparation for the Future

Although many might argue that what happened in the past will not be relevant today, there are many lessons that we can obtain from the past to make us more well-prepared for the future. For example, when making new policies and decisions, governments often look at a similar situation that occurred in the past to determine its feasibility in the future.
