Dawn of Empire

by Sam Barone

Five millennia ago, on the eastern bank of the river Tigris, the course of human history changed forever . . . The people of Orak cherish their peaceful village and the life they have made. Though not proficient with the bow or sword, they possess a weapon far stronger: the ability to coax food from the ground. This is why the barbarian leader Thutmose-sin hates and fears them. As his marauding clan of bloodthirsty warriors readies itself for the plunder and the kill, the fate of the village rests with the outcast barbarian Eskkar and the woman he loves, the wise and beautiful slave girl Trella-and on a bold, remarkable, never-before-tested plan of defense. For those who have known peace must turn their hands to war, to save from the savage invaders not only their families but their way of life.

Dawn of Fear

by Susan Fenimore Cooper

"You aren't really old enough to be frightened," said Derek's father, and it was true. The German planes that flew over daily on their way to bomb London fascinated Derek and his friends, Peter and Geoff, and they always cheered the RAF planes that went to intercept them, but even when a near miss closed their school for a few days, their interest in the bomb crater was detached and scientific. Far more engrossing was the camp they were building at the bottom of an old ditch dug for a housing project that had never been finished. It was to be their secret meeting place, and they would keep their most treasured possessions there. Gradually, however, things changed. As the night raids grew more severe, Derek began to worry about the camp, and he became increasingly aware of his parents' fear. Yet it was not bombs that destroyed the camp in the end, but a tough gang from the next street. Enlisting the aid of an older neighbor, Derek and Peter and Geoff engaged in a furious battle of vengeance with the gang. Then, for the first time, they saw violent grown-up hatred, and then, too, they began to know the meaning of fear. Susan Cooper, author of the popular Over Sea, Under Stone, brings the sensitivity and insight of a highly gifted writer to this story of a boy's gradual awakening to an awareness of the adult world. It is a suspenseful, moving, and memorable book.

The Dawn of Genius

by Alan Butler

The modern world looks back towards Ancient Greece for the start of its philosophy, for the origins of its science and even for the foundations of its excursion into democracy. But is this either correct or fair? Was there something long, long before the City States of Greece flirted with geometry, astronomy and inclusive politics from which Greece itself developed, merely as a pale reflection? Alan Butler has put together his most exhaustive and yet most compelling presentation of how we came to be what we are today. The Dawn Genius explores the genius that was the Minoan civilization and shows how accounts of the fabled Atlantis were actually memories of a worldwide catastrophe that occurred around 1600 BC. The Dawn of Genius puts back into the place the missing pieces of the puzzle that is Europe prior to a massive watershed in population and culture that took place after 2000 BC. A cataclysmic volcanic eruption in the Eastern Mediterranean destroyed an almost totally forgotten infrastructure that encompassed an entire continent, and opened Europe to an unparalleled invasion of much less sophisticated people from the East. The book recreates the culture and religion and scientific knowledge that was shattered in an instant and which plunged the world into a dark age from which it has taken over 3,000 years to emerge. This is probably the most comprehensive explanation of mysteries from a truly ancient world that has ever been written. Those interested in exploring the genuine origins of the modern world are certain to be enthralled.

The Dawn of Innovation

by Charles R. Morris

In the thirty years after the Civil War, the United States blew by Great Britain to become the greatest economic power in world history. That is a well-known period in history, when titans like Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and J. P. Morgan walked the earth. But as Charles R. Morris shows us, the platform for that spectacular growth spurt was built in the first half of the century. By the 1820s, America was already the world's most productive manufacturer, and the most intensely commercialized society in history. The War of 1812 jumpstarted the great New England cotton mills, the iron centers in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, and the forges around the Great Lakes. In the decade after the War, the Midwest was opened by entrepreneurs. In thisbeautifully illustrated book, Morris paints a vivid panorama of a new nation buzzing with the work of creation. He also points out the parallels and differences in the nineteenth century American/British standoff and that between China and America today.
