NATIONAL BESTSELLER NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Destined to become a modern classic in the vein of Guns, Germs, and Steel, Sapiens is a lively, groundbreaking history of humankind told from a unique perspective. 100,000 years ago, at least six species of human inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo Sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come? In Sapiens, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical -- and sometimes devastating -- breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology, and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come? Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our power...and our future.

The Lost Hall of Records Edgar Cayce s Forgotten Record of Human History in the Ancient Yucatan

Deep in the heart of the largely unexplored jungles of the Yucatan lies a storehouse of records telling the history of all humanity and revealing the origin and meaning of life. According to the "Sleeping Prophet" Edgar Cayce, nearly 13,000 years ago these records were buried at three separate locations in the world by priests of Atlantis, just before the final destruction of this fabled continent. The Hall of Records at Giza in Egypt has eluded discovery and a second hall is covered by the Atlantic Ocean near the island of Bimini in the Bahamas. The third Hall, located in the general area of the Yucatan, may now be nearing discovery. The site, Piedras Negras, Guatemala, is definitely concealing ancient buried records.In 1933 Cayce related that the third record hall, located in the Yucatan, was at that moment being excavated by archaelogists representing the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) and that some of the artifacts were sent to their museum. Subsequent research clearly showed that the only place being excavated in the Yucatan by Penn was Piedras Negras. As part of the research for this book, the actual field notes and many artifacts from the Piedras Negras excavations were examined by Dr. Lora Little at the Penn Museum.In this compelling book, John Van Auken, author of numerous Cayce-related books, and Dr. Lora Little present Cayce's story of how and why a Hall of Records was established in the Yucatan. Backed by solid archaeological evidence and astronomical correlations, the authors show how the Mayan creation story involves the constellation Orion and why Piedras Negras is the likely site of the Hall of Records. In addition, the authors reveal that Cayce has told us what is recorded in the Hall of Records through his many Akasha "readings." This is a reprint of the original 2000 bestselling issue of the book, and it contains a new author Epilogue by Dr. Lora Little detailing her discoveries visiting the site along with new photographs of the site. The book is illustrated with 172 pictures, maps, and line drawings, fully indexed.

The Human Journey offers a truly concise yet satisfyingly full history of the world from ancient times to the present. The book’s scope, as the title implies, is the whole story of humanity, in planetary context. Its themes include not only the great questions of the humanities—nature versus nurture, the history and meaning of human variation, the sources of wealth and causes of revolution—but also the major transformations in human history: agriculture, cities, iron, writing, universal religions, global trade, industrialization, popular government, justice, and equality. In each conceptually rich chapter, leading historian Kevin Reilly concentrates on a single important period and theme, sustaining a focused narrative and analytical perspective. Chapter 2, for example, discusses the significance of bronze-age urbanization and the advent of the Iron Age. Chapter 3 examines the meaning and significance of the age of “classical” civilizations. Chapter 4 explains the spread of universal religions and new technologies in the postclassical age of Eurasian integration. But these examples also reveal a range of approaches to world history. The first chapter is an example of current “Big History,” the second of history as technological transformations, the third of comparative history, the fourth the history of connections that dominates, and thus narrows, so many texts. Free of either a confined, limiting focus or a mandatory laundry list of topics, this book begins with our most important questions and searches all of our past for answers. Well-grounded in the latest scholarship, this is not a fill-in-the-blanks text, but world history in a grand humanistic tradition.

Resume:

Acclaimed New York Times journalist and author Chris Hedges offers a critical -- and fascinating -- lesson in the dangerous realities of our age: a stark look at the effects of war on combatants. Utterly lacking in rhetoric or dogma, this manual relies instead on bare fact, frank description, and a spare question-and-answer format. Hedges allows U.S. military documentation of the brutalizing physical and psychological consequences of combat to speak for itself. Hedges poses dozens of questions that young soldiers might ask about combat, and then answers them by quoting from medical and psychological studies. • What are my chances of being wounded or killed if we go to war? • What does it feel like to get shot? • What do artillery shells do to you? • What is the most painful way to get wounded? • Will I be afraid? • What could happen to me in a nuclear attack? • What does it feel like to kill someone? • Can I withstand torture? • What are the long-term consequences of combat stress? • What will happen to my body after I die? This profound and devastating portrayal of the horrors to which we subject our armed forces stands as a ringing indictment of the glorification of war and the concealment of its barbarity.
