In the shadow of the sword : the battle for global empire and the end of the ancient world by Tom Holland( Recording )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remarkable story of an imperial civilization that endures as perhaps the only one to have survived from antiquity into the present day. No less significant than the collapse of the Roman Republic or the Persian invasion of Greece, the evolution of the Arab empire is one of the supreme narratives of ancient history, a story of manifest destiny that is dazzlingly rich in drama, character, and achievement. Just like the Romans, the Arabs came from nowhere; yet by 632, when the Prophet Muhammad is supposed to have died, all the tribes of the Arabian peninsula had come to acknowledge the authority of his teachings. During the next two hundred years, they carved out a stupefyingly vast dominion, overcoming seemingly insuperable odds to emerge triumphant against the greatest empire of the day

Travelling 7,000 miles in eight months, he traces the passage not only of trade and armies, but of ideas, religions and inventions. He meets some fascinating people and encounters some of the world's discontented margins, where the true boundaries are not political borders but the frontiers of tribe, ethnicity, language and religion

People have been disappearing in what the explorer Stanley called the black heart of Africa -- the impenetrable forests of northern Congo.

Intelligence chief Jack Milton sends a message to his godson Luca Matthews (The Forbidden Temple hero) in the Himalayas asking him to go to Africa and find Joshua. Reluctantly Luca obeys, but he is no longer the man he once was, traumatised by his part in the death of his best friend, his legendary climbing nerve shot to pieces. Meanwhile in Africa, mining troubleshooter and brilliant flying pilot, Beatrice (Bear) Makuru, also wants to brave the northern wilderness

First World War 1914 : voices from the BBC archives by Mark Jones( Recording )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique collection of historic recordings covering events from the last days of peace to the Christmas truce in 1914. At midnight on August 4, Britain had declared war on Germany. The pacifist Bertrand Russell was shocked by the pro-war euphoria on the streets, yet young men enlisted willingly because "it would all be over by Christmas." It was not. Instead the opposing armies had become entrenched. It was the beginning of a long and bitter stalemate. In this new audio compilation, troops of the British Expeditionary Force vividly recall the exhausting retreat from Mons, the success at the Marne, and the first battle of Ypres, where the Territorials arrived in bright red London buses. For reconnaissance pilots, the battlefield was defined by blazing villages, and fields alive with German troops. Among the items which powerfully capture the mood of the time are an eyewitness account of the Kaiser's reaction to the news from Sarajevo on June 28; Margot Asquith, wife of the prime minister, remembering their despair at the inevitability of war; and the poignant reminiscences of civilians and soldiers
