One of Thomas Hardy´s classic statements about modern love, courtship, and marriage, The Return of the Native is set in the pastoral village of Egdon Heath. The fiery Eustacia Vye, wishing only for passionate love, believes that her escape from Egdon lies in her marriage to Clym Yeobright, the returning ´´native´´, home from Paris and discontented with his work there. Clym wishes to remain in Egdon, however - a desire that sets him in opposition to his wife and brings them both to despair. Surrounding them are Clym´s mother, who is strongly opposed to his marriage; Damon Wildeve, who is in love with Eustacia but married to Clym´s cousin Thomasin; and the oddly ambiguous observer Diggory Venn, whose frustrated love for Thomasin turns him into either a guardian angel or a jealous manipulator - or perhaps both. This stew of curdled love and conflicting emotions can only boil over into tragedy, and the book´s darkly ironic ending marks it as both a classically Victorian novel and a forerunner of the modernist fiction that followed it. 1.

Eustacia Vye´s great desire in life was to be loved to madness, and in this, one of Thomas Hardy´s best-loved novels, one of his most superb female characters conducts her wild and lethal campaign against her rival - the innocent, rather conventional Thomas - against the backdrop of Egdon Heath, the equally wild and lethal Dorset moorland on which Hardy grew up. When Hardy first published the book, it was greeted with both acclaim and outrage. The response to the unfashionably shocking initial ending meant that Hardy was forced to add the sixth and last book to create the happy outcome that the public demanded for the characters he´d persuaded them to mind so much about. This being a book about desire, gratification and marvellous manipulation, he did, however, naturally give them a happy ending on his own terms.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Oliver Cotton.

The antiquity of Native American bounces back hundreds of years ago till the extant. The aboriginal inhabitants left their mark in many climates and tribes in the form of ethnicities, relics, and registers made by the white voyagers. When European explorers set foot on American soil and had dealings with the tribes of now Peru, Canada, and Mexico, it marked the beginning of Native American history. Their history is all about the tribes and the cities they built and sustained on fishing, hunting, and fruits. They used urbane forms of trade and the later generations of the tribes also used money. Most of the tribes were hoarders and hunters and desired to keep their ways. The tribes battled among themselves for superiority but amalgamated the captured tribes into their erudite political system, which consisted of leading a number of small lands and creating governmental frames. The tribes forgot their mutual enmities and stood one against the European settlers. However, there were many tribes who sided the British just to avenge their rival tribes. At the time of French and Indian War, the tribes fought for French or British based on the side which their enemy tribe was. The history of Native America is full of such coalitions and conflicts. This book discusses the ways of the Native American tribes. Their struggle for a decent life, their fight against the deadly diseases, and their position in the society of today. 1.

A searing modern polemic and Sunday Times best seller from the BAFTA and MOBO-award-winning musician and political commentator, Akala. From the first time he was stopped and searched as a child, to the day he realised his mum was white, to his first encounters with racist teachers - race and class have shaped Akala´s life and outlook. In this unique book he takes his own experiences and widens them out to look at the social, historical and political factors that have left us where we are today. Covering everything from the police, education and identity to politics, sexual objectification and the far right, Natives will speak directly to British denial and squeamishness when it comes to confronting issues of race and class that are at the heart of the legacy of Britain´s racialised empire. 1.

History, for all its facts and figures, names and dates, is ultimately subjective. You learn the points of view your teachers provide, the perspectives that books offer, and the conclusions you draw yourself based on the facts you were given. Hearing different angles on historical events gives you a more insightful, accurate, and rewarding understanding of events - especially when a new viewpoint challenges the story you thought you knew. Now the Great Courses has partnered with Smithsonian to bring you a course that will greatly expand your understanding of American history. This course, Native Peoples of North America, pairs the unmatched resources and expertise of the Smithsonian´s National Museum of the American Indian with the unparalleled knowledge of Professor Daniel M. Cobb of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to provide a multidisciplinary view of American history, revealing new perspectives on the historical and contemporary experiences of indigenous peoples and their impact on the history of our country. This insightful and unique 24-lecture course helps disprove myths and stereotypes that many people take as fact. Professor Cobb presents a different account of the Seven Years´ War, the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Gold Rush, the Transcontinental Railroad, and beyond, providing the stories of the American Indian people who fought and negotiated to preserve their ancestral lands. Native Peoples of North America recounts an epic story of resistance and accommodation, persistence and adaption, extraordinary hardship and survival across more than 500 years of colonial encounter. As the Smithsonian curators stated, ´´The past never changes. But the way we understand it, learn about it, and know about it changes all the time.´´ Be prepared - this course is going to change how you understand American history. And no matter how much you know about this subject, you will be surp... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel M. Cobb.
