When in 1821, the Greeks rose in violent revolution against the rule of the Ottoman Turks, waves of sympathy spread across Western Europe and the United States. More than a thousand volunteers set out to fight for the cause. The Philhellenes, whether they set out to recreate the Athens of Pericles, start a new crusade, or make money out of a war, all felt that Greece had unique claim on the sympathy of the world. As Byron wrote, 'I dreamed that Greece might Still be Free'; and he died at Missolonghi trying to translate that dream into reality. William St Clair's meticulously researched and highly readable account of their aspirations and experiences was hailed as definitive when it was first published. Long out of print, it remains the standard account of the Philhellenic movement and essential reading for any students of the Greek War of Independence, Byron, and European Romanticism. Its relevance to more modern ethnic and religious conflicts is becoming increasingly appreciated by scholars worldwide. This new and revised edition includes a new Introduction by Roderick Beaton, an updated Bibliography and many new illustrations.
The cause of the change was money. One can only guess at the promises which Edward Blaquiere made on his first visit to Greece in the spring of 1823.

When Robert Z. Aliber's The International Money Game first appeared in 1973, it was widely acclaimed as the best – and the most entertaining – introduction to the arcane mysteries of international finance. The 7th edition of this classic work has been fully re-written to recognize the immense changes in the global economy in the last thirty five years. There have been four waves of financial crises; each wave has involved the failures of banks and other financial institutions in three, four, or more countries. Each wave of crises has been preceded by a wave of credit bubbles, which has involved the increase in the indebtedness of a group of borrowers at rates in the range of twenty to thirty percent a year for three or four or more years. These bubbles are related to global imbalances. A substantive preface surveys these major changes since the first edition. As in previous editions, Aliber's aim is not just to be topical. His witty, perceptive, and authoritative book focuses on fundamentals, on 'how the pieces fit'. Aliber provides an indispensable and highly readable guide to the complex and increasingly fragile arrangement for financing the world's business.
Until this issue canbe resolved, an agreement on the management ofthe rateof money supply growth is virtually impossible. Some countries would be more ...

Anna, a German mill-owner’s daughter, marries a French aristocrat and moves to France. She discovers that her husband killed his previous wife and that he is trying to kill her as well. Quick, intriguing, and with an extremely interesting plot, ‘The Grey Woman’ (1861) is a short story by Elizabeth Gaskell for anyone who enjoys a good gothic shudder. Incredibly progressive for its time, it is about the survival of the ill-treated woman who has decided that enough is enough. Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell (1810-1865) was an English novelist, short story writer, and biographer, best known for her novels ‘North and South’ and ‘Wives and Daughters’ as well as her biography of Charlotte Brontë. Gaskell was viewed as a minor author until the 1950s where it became evident that her depiction of industrial environments and social problems was brilliant and poignant.
