The deities of ancient Greece are central characters in a body of mythical narratives that were at the heart of a civilization that lasted many centuries. These characters and stories represent imaginatively the Greeks’ understanding of nature, psychology, and their own history. They also include strange and spectacular tales of love and lust, war and peace, heroism and vengeance, supernatural feats and superhuman weaknesses — which may explain their appeal to poets, prose writers, and artists over time, right up to the present day: a stock of themes and images at the historical heart of European culture that still lend themselves to literary and artistic use at every level.
This imaginative coloring book contains 22 memorable images based on the myths and legends of the Greek gods and heroes. Each full-page, ready-to-color illustration appears beside a page of descriptive text. Depictions include Poseidon’s wrathful destruction of Odysseus’ ship; Apollo slaying the monstrous Python; the return of Persephone from the Underworld; the virgin goddess Artemis; the punishment of Prometheus for bringing fire to mankind; Eos (Dawn) streaking across the sky in her chariot; Hephaistos forging weapons for the king of the gods; Zeus hurling thunderbolts; and 14 other exciting illustrations.

Black Wind, White Snow: The Rise of Russia’s New Nationalism

Charles Clover, award-winning journalist and former Moscow bureau chief for the Financial Times, here analyses the idea of “Eurasianism,” a theory of Russian national identity based on ethnicity and geography. Clover traces Eurasianism’s origins in the writings of White Russian exiles in 1920s Europe, through Siberia’s Gulag archipelago in the 1950s, the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, and up to its steady infiltration of the governing elite around Vladimir Putin. This eye-opening analysis pieces together the evidence for Eurasianism’s place at the heart of Kremlin thinking today and explores its impact on recent events, the annexation of Crimea, the rise in Russia of anti-Western paranoia and imperialist rhetoric, as well as Putin’s sometimes perplexing political actions and ambitions.

Based on extensive research and dozens of interviews with Putin’s close advisers, this quietly explosive story will be essential reading for anyone concerned with Russia’s past century, and its future.

Druids: A Very Short Introduction


Price: $11.95 - $10.80
(as of May 21,2020 11:50:46 UTC – Details)



The Druids have been known and discussed for at least 2400 years, first by Greek writers and later by the Romans, who came in contact with them in Gaul and Britain. According to these sources, they were a learned caste who officiated in religious ceremonies, taught the ancient wisdoms, and were revered as philosophers. But few figures flit so elusively through history, and the Druids remain enigmatic and puzzling to this day. In this Very Short Introduction, one of the leading authorities on British archaeology, Barry Cunliffe, takes the reader on a fast-paced look at the ever-fascinating story of the Druids, as seen in the context of the times and places in which they practiced. Sifting through the evidence, Cunliffe offers an expert’s best guess as to what can be said and what can’t be said about the Druids, discussing the origins of the Druids and the evidence for their beliefs and practices, why the nature of the druid caste changed quite dramatically over time, and how successive generations have seen them in very different ways.
