Can a manufactured being mutiny against her creators? Dare she? Salvia is a being like no other, crafted from the genes of several Earth species. She is on Jupiter’s moon, Europa, to work for “the company”, finding new materials that will be used for commercial applications. She is young, intelligent…and lonely; so much so that she demands that her employer send her a companion, or she’ll never work for them again. Rhus is the brash male that the company sends from Mars, and he stirs something deep within Salvia. But Rhus has been crafted with another objective in mind. Working closely together, they begin falling in love, but what Salvia doesn’t know is that the company wants her head, preferably on a platter, and they’re going to use Rhus to get it.

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award The real story behind the major motion picture The Monuments Men. The cast of characters includes Hitler and Goering, Gertrude Stein and Marc Chagall--not to mention works by artists from Leonardo da Vinci to Pablo Picasso. And the story told in this superbly researched and suspenseful book is that of the Third Reich's war on European culture and the Allies' desperate effort to preserve it. From the Nazi purges of "Degenerate Art" and Goering's shopping sprees in occupied Paris to the perilous journey of the Mona Lisa from Paris and the painstaking reclamation of the priceless treasures of liberated Italy, The Rape of Europa is a sweeping narrative of greed, philistinism, and heroism that combines superlative scholarship with a compelling drama.

Europe is still a divided continent. In the place of a fallen Berlin wall, there is a chasm between the East and the West. Are these differences a communist legacy, or do they run even deeper? What divides us today? To say simply that it is the understanding of the past, or a different concept of time, is not enough. But a visitor to this part of the world will soon discover that we, the Eastern Europeans, live in another time zone. We live in the twentieth century, but at the same time we inhabit a past full of myths and fairy tales, of blood and national belonging, and the fact that most people are lying and cheating or that they have the habit of blaming others for every failure...' An intimate tour of life on the streets of Budapest, Tirana, Warsaw and Zagreb, as those cities continue to acclimatise to the post-Communist thaw, Café Europa does not provide easy solutions or furnish political pallatives. Rather as a Croatian with a viewpoint of ever-widening relevance, the value of Slavenka Drakulic's wry and humane observations lie in the emotional force of their honesty and the clarity of their insight.....

An original and innovative examination of the continent—and its culture—that was the epicenter of the world for almost five centuries. European history is deeply embedded in the global civilization that has emerged in the 21st century. More than two thirds of today’s nations were once European colonies or protectorates. Europe’s legacy is evident in the trajectory of the United States and has influenced aspiring hegemonic powers like China. For centuries, Europe was the heart and soul of the West, and European powers enjoyed unprecedented global hegemony, not only by military and economic means, but also through their influence on politics and culture. The rise and fall of the European era of world supremacy constitutes one of the most epic histories of all time. ere were the extraordinary changes of the Renaissance and its aftermath, which marked the beginning of Europe's imposition of itself over other civilizations, but it was Columbus’s “discovery” of America that provided the key to its meteoric rise. Spain and Portugal would form the first global empires, closely followed by Holland, Britain, France and Russia. Following the exploits of navigators like Vasco da Gama and Captain Cook, the conquistador Hernan Cortes, missionary Henry Livingstone and others, Europa reveals the origins of Europe’s rapid expansion, which was then expanded upon further by millions of Europeans migrants, who spread their culture and values. MacLennan also reveals how statesmen, scientists, inventors, philosophers, writers, and revolutionaries were responsible for transforming the continent into a civilization that inspired universal attraction. Even into the twentieth century, after reaching the nadir of imperial decline and self- destruction, Europe has once again become a global trendsetter.

In Jupiter’s orbit, a mysterious death propels an astronaut into the investigation of a lifetime Partway into a years-long journey, an interstellar research expedition takes up orbit around Jupiter and begins to explore the gas giant’s moons: Ganymede, Callisto, Io and—most importantly—the ice ball known as Europa. For centuries, scientists have wondered what strange alien life forms may lurk beneath the frozen surface of Jupiter’s most mysterious moon. And tragically, the men and women aboard this ship are about to find out. Two scientists go down to the surface of Europa in a small craft piloted by the beautiful, fiery Evangeline Chatelain. After an accident on the surface, only she returns. Her crewmembers suspect her of murder, but Evangeline tells a wild tale of an attack by a terrifying space monster. The astronaut charged with investigating the incident must decide—is she a crazed killer? Or has she just made the greatest scientific discovery in history?

Imperium Europa is a book that confronts, and puts forward a radical response, to the all important questions of the survival of the Europid race - that race of biological aristocrats that gave the world everything. The book delves into genetics, geo-politics, racialism, environmentalism, art, architecture, education, economics, immigration, and more. Written by Norman Lowell on the ancient island of Malta, Imperium Europa is, as German writer Constantin von Hoffmeister puts it, A vision of what Europe will become. Not what Europe should become but what Europe WILL become.

'The Rape of Europa' is one of Titian's great masterpieces, a work charged with eroticism and classical mystique behind which lies a tale as compelling as the painting itself. Here Charles FitzRoy weaves a unique account of its history and the painting's movement following the rise and fall of the countries in which it has been housed. The story ranges from its place at the court of King Philip II of Spain, through French revolution and English intrigue, to its final move to America, engineered by the brilliant but devious art historian Bernard Berenson. This is the tale of how Titian's masterpiece has captivated kings, nobles, artists, and lovers alike for over four centuries since its conception and continues to do so today.

In The Dream of Europa, following the tradition of celebratory court masques in verse by Ben Jonson and more recently William Empson, Nicholas Hagger celebrates the court of the leaders of the European Union. Through a chorus of 50 representatives of European states he presents the growth and expansion of what became the EU in an epic sweep that takes us from 1945 to 2015 and incorporates the five elements (prologue, antimasque, masque, revels, epilogue) and blend of mythology and history found in all masques. Zeus asks Europa, the goddess of Europe, to sort out the chaos and disorder that devastated Europe in 1945. Europa presides over the growing unification of a European Union of 28 states with 22 more expected to join. Celebratory revels acclaim the Treaty of Lisbon but there is a discordant note, and Churchill has strong words for the UK representative. Finally Europa hands the EU back to Zeus. The dream of Europa is that one day the EU will turn into a United States of Europe consisting of 50 states (see front cover) like the USA, and will bring in a Universalist World State. As a court entertainment for European leaders celebrating Europe’s progress from disorder to order, The Dream of Europa cries out to be performed in Brussels. It heralds the triumph of peace during the 70 years following 1945 and calls for a strengthening of European unity in the face of an expanding Russia that still regards Eastern Europe as being within its sphere of influence. This masque and its informative appendix on European states and rights will appeal to all generations in the 50 European states and to all beyond who value a peaceful Europe in our troubled time.
