The deportees into Nazi extermination camps charge the Shoa as the unutterable experience of the twentieth century that remains unsurpassed. They serve as witnesses of an event that, more than any other event, cannot be explained or rationalized. With this book, the author ponders upon this subject, addressing in particular those who were born in the world "after Auschwitz." The author, through his analysis of the spatial-temporal, symbolic and physical structure of the lager pieces together the specific pedagogy of annihilation, which was an original Nazi creation. He introduces the lager as a pedagogical device that, in addition to destroying individuals, placed them in a condition of self-destruction. Searching for traces of that expropriation and liquidation device within modern societies, the author finds opportunities of resistance and opposition by individual subjects."

From flowers and perfumes to urban sanitation and personal hygiene, smell—a sense that is simultaneously sublime and animalistic—has played a pivotal role in western culture and thought. Greek and Roman writers and thinkers lost no opportunity to connect the smells that bombarded their senses to the social, political and cultural status of the individuals and environments that they encountered: godly incense and burning sacrifices, seductive scents, aromatic cuisines, stinking bodies, pungent farmyards and festering back-streets. The cultural study of smell has largely focused on pollution, transgression and propriety, but the olfactory sense came into play in a wide range of domains and activities: ancient medicine and philosophy, religion, botany and natural history, erotic literature, urban planning, dining, satire and comedy—where odours, aromas, scents and stenches were rich and versatile components of the ancient sensorium. The first comprehensive introduction to the role of smell in the history, literature and society of classical antiquity, Smell and the Ancient Senses explores and probes the ways that the olfactory sense can contribute to our perceptions of ancient life, behaviour, identity and morality.

The tombs have always been there beneath the city of Jerusalem. At first obscure, then hidden, then lost entirely, it was a place where death went about its business unseen. Where the living had become the dead and their mourners had in turn been mourned. And then, in 1968, a discovery is made that is so shattering that the reverberations echo through time. For the tombs also guard a secret: a 2,000-year-old prize that men would kill- and die- for. In the same year, in Dublin, young Patrick Canavan experiences the intense passion of first love for Francesca Contarini. But Francesca shares the secret of the tomb and her knowledge is deadly with repercussions that stretch far into the future. More than twenty years later, Canavan finds himself prisoner of a KGB agent, being questioned about an ancient brotherhood: The Brotherhood of the Tomb.

Master military historian John Keegan’s groundbreaking analysis of combat and warfare The Face of Battle is military history from the battlefield: a look at the direct experience of individuals at the "point of maximum danger." Without the myth-making elements of rhetoric and xenophobia, and breaking away from the stylized format of battle descriptions, John Keegan has written what is probably the definitive model for military historians. And in his scrupulous reassessment of three battles representative of three different time periods, he manages to convey what the experience of combat meant for the participants, whether they were facing the arrow cloud at the battle of Agincourt, the musket balls at Waterloo, or the steel rain of the Somme. “The best military historian of our generation.” –Tom Clancy
