For a hundred years, Sweden was the international military power of Northern Europe, in control of the entire Baltic region and among the first to colonize in Africa and America. But the history of Sweden, Finland, the Baltic States, Poland, and Prussia is largely neglected in American classrooms and scholarship. This book fills a large void in European history as it is generally presented to the American student and reader. This narrative covers Sweden’s Age of Greatness (1632–1718) and the warrior-kings who governed that age. It chronologically describes the political and religious events of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and reveals how these events produced the climate for European global expansion, including the exploration and colonization of the New World. The story traces history through the reigns of Sweden’s ambitious rulers, beginning with the presumably Swedish Goths who ravaged the Roman Empire in the 2nd century CE and continuing through the end of the empire in the early eighteenth century. A thorough epilogue documents the cultural flowering in the arts and sciences that commenced in the Age of Greatness and continued to blossom in the centuries that followed. This final section of the book pays special attention to the personalities that drove Sweden’s far-reaching cultural progress.

It's a snowy evening, South London. From a bus, Max Wolf and his brother Angelo see a gang ominously tracking a well-known rapper, Mogul King, through the dark streets. Minutes later, Mogul King boards the bus, presses a parcel into Max's hands, exacts an incomprehensible promise, and jumps off again - to his death. The parcel contains an extraordinary ancient bronze dagger, and within hours Max is running for his own life through London, his brother, Angelo, is dead, apparently the victim of a gang drive-by shooting, and his friend, Sapphire, is next on the hit list. But everything is not as it seems. Everything leads the British Museum. Everything began with the ill-fated British Punitive Expedition of 1897 and the looting of the fabulous Benin Bronzes from Nigeria over a hundred years ago. In an intriguing dual storyline, Max's racing first person narrative story is offset by a scrap book of letters, memoirs, drawings, photos and journal entries, by one Hugh Hardy, Gunner aboard the Theseus, and foot soldier on that ruinous expedition over a century ago.

Kings and Warriors in Early North west Europe

This book explores the representation of the warrior in relation to the king in early north-west Europe. These essays, by scholars from the areas of Norse, Celtic and Anglo-Saxon studies, examine how medieval writers highlighted the role of the warrior in relation to kings, or to authority, and to society as a whole. The warrior who fought for his people was also a danger to them. How was such a destructive force to be controlled? The Christian church sought to challenge the ethos of the pagan tribal warrior and to reduce the barbarism of warfare (at least its worst excesses). We can follow this struggle in the medieval literature produced in the areas under study. Content Includes: Marged Haycock (U Aberystwyth), Poets and the Welsh experience c.600-1300; Charles Doherty (U College Dublin), Warrior and king in Early Ireland; Jan Erik Rekdal (U Oslo), The medieval king: Christian king and fearless warrior; Ralph O'Connor (U Aberdeen), Monsters of the tribe: berserk fury, shapeshifting and social dysfunction in TÃ?Â?Ã?¡in BÃ?Â?Ã?Â3 CÃ?Â?Ã?Âoailnge, Egils saga and HrÃ?Â?Ã?Â3lfs saga kraka; Morgan Thomas Davies (Colgate U), Warrior Time; Ian Beuermann (Nordeuropa-Institut, Berlin), Warriors and rulers in Old Norse texts from c.1200; Jon Gunnar JÃ?Â?Ã? ̧rgensen (U Oslo), Presentations of King Ã?Â?Ã?Â?lÃ?Â?Ã?¡fr Haraldsson the Saint in medieval poetry and prose; Stefka G.
