Modern history completes and updates the previous four books, giving the remaining pieces of the puzzle to grasp our reality, its history, the otherworldly races, the enhanced humans and what current day humans are and can become. It is a must read for the ones that want to progress and do their higher awareness work in 2018 and onward. And all that is left to say is: Creating a new human paradigm begins with creating a new type of human. It is that simple. It all begins with one person. You.

It offers a revealing look at how events, people, and institutions are shaped by currents that sometimes reach back hundreds of years. The book covers the complex history of the diverse societies and economies of Iran against the background of dynastic changes, revolutions, civil wars, foreign occupation, and the rise of the Islamic Republic.Abbas Amanat combines chronological and thematic approaches, exploring events with lasting implications for modern Iran and the world. Drawing on diverse historical scholarship and emphasizing the 20th century, he addresses debates about Iran´s culture and politics.Political history is the driving narrative force, given impetus by Amanat´s decades of research and study. He layers the book with discussions of literature, music, and the arts; ideology and religion; economy and society; and cultural identity and heritage. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Derek Perkins.

This lecture series takes you on a far-reaching journey around the globe - from China to the Americas to New Zealand - to shed light on how two dozen of the top discoveries, inventions, political upheavals, and ideas since 1400 have shaped the modern world. In just 24 thought-provoking lectures, you´ll get the amazing story of how life as we know it developed. Starting in the early 15th century and culminating in the age of social media, you´ll encounter astounding threads that weave through the centuries, joining these turning points in ways that may come as a revelation. You´ll also witness turning points with repercussions we can only speculate about because they are still very much in the process of turning. Professor Liulevicius doesn´t merely recount the greatest events of history, but rather has selected true catalysts in provoking changes in worldview. Some of the events you´ll investigate, including the discovery of the New World and the fall of the Berlin Wall, will immediately resonate as watershed moments. The global significance of other pivotal events may only become apparent through the detailed analysis contained in these lectures, such as the publication of the Enlightenment-era Encyclopédie and the Russo-Japanese War - which has been historically overshadowed by the two world wars that followed. As you discover how turning points such as the discovery of penicillin and the opening of East Berlin hinged on chance, accident, and, in some cases, sheer luck, you´ll realize how easily history might have played out differently. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English.
