'The events of the first and second world wars are brought to vivid, startling life thanks to Amaral's skill at colourising contemporary images' Observer
The epic, harrowing and world-changing story – in words and colourized images – of global conflict from the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand to the obliteration of Hiroshima by the dropping of the first atom bomb. The World Aflame embraces not only the total conflagrations of 1914–18 and 1939–45 and the international tensions, conflicting ideologies and malign economic forces that set them in train, but also the civil wars of the interwar period in Ireland and Spain, wars in Latin America, Britain's imperial travails in such places as Ireland, Somalia and Palestine, and events on the domestic 'fronts' of the belligerent nations.

Like The Colour of Time, this is a collaboration between the gifted Brazilian artist Marina Amaral, and the leading British historian Dan Jones. A fusion of amazing pictures and well-chosen and informative words, The World Aflame offers a moving – and often terrifying – perspective on the bloodiest century in human history.

As history, the uprisings of 1848 have long been overshadowed by the French Revolution of 1789 and the Russian revolutions of the early twentieth century. And yet in 1848 nearly all of Europe was aflame with conflict. Parallel political tumults spread like brush fire across the entire continent, leading to significant changes that continue to shape our world today. These battles for the future were fought with one eye kept squarely on the past: The men and women of 1848 saw the urgent challenges of their world as shaped profoundly by the past, and saw themselves as inheritors of a revolutionary tradition.

Celebrated Cambridge historian Christopher Clark describes 1848 as “the particle collision chamber at the center of the European nineteenth century,” a moment when political movements and ideas—from socialism and democratic radicalism to liberalism, nationalism, corporatism, and conservatism—were tested and transformed. The insurgents asked questions that sound modern to our ears: What happens when demands for political or economic liberty conflict with demands for social rights? How do we reconcile representative and direct forms of democracy? How is capitalism connected to social inequality? The revolutions of 1848 were short-lived, but their impact on public life and political thought throughout Europe and beyond has been profound.

Meticulously researched, elegantly written, and filled with a cast of charismatic figures, including the social theorist Alexis de Tocqueville, the writer George Sand, and the troubled priest Félicité de Lamennais, who struggled to reconcile his faith with politics, Revolutionary Spring offers a new understanding of 1848 that suggests chilling parallels to our present moment. “Looking back at the revolutions from the end of the first quarter of the twenty-first century, it is impossible not to be struck by the resonances,” Clark writes. “If a revolution is coming for us, it may look something like 1848.”" ["image"]=> array(4) { ["width"]=> int(250) ["height"]=> int(200) ["url"]=> string(56) "https://media.s-bol.com/gN0JKPVX3xpG/J6611XD/250x200.jpg" ["mimeType"]=> string(10) "image/jpeg" } ["offer"]=> array(2) { ["price"]=> float(42.82) ["deliveryDescription"]=> string(47) "Op voorraad.

Throughout the world, in every nation, mysterious thundering fires erupt in oil fields, refineries, coal mines and on national borders. The holocaust is so tyrannical, that communication, energy and travel experienced in the 21st Century is suddenly ended. Two years prior to this global disaster Rick Landis is hired as a field reporter at The Sun Times newspaper. The first person he meets prior to his interview is the beautiful Sydney Marston. Sydney is the Chief Assistant to Charles Chuck Wainwright the owner/publisher of The Sun Times. Over the next year Ricks reputation as an exceptional reporter grows and so does his interest in Sydney Marston. But he has questions: Why does she always say Have a blessed day. Is she a Jesus freak or what? Next there is a mysterious meeting with Chuck Wainwright. He reveals to Rick that he is a leader in a secret underground government militia. But what government? Rick hesitantly accepts an overseas assignment. However, he becomes trapped there as the global fires break out and all transportation is terminated. Soon after that complication Rick, and his photographer pal Marty, learn that an army of giant hybrid soldiers is on the Syrian/Israeli border. They are there preparing to invade Israel. Murder, treachery, betrayal and war, continue in the books final chapters, leading to a surprising finish. Through it all, however, Rick continues to dream of a future with Sydney Marston.

Beschrijving

World Aflame: Is there Hope?

An authoritative answer to the great questions raised by the moral and spiritual crises of our time.

Our world is ablaze with rebellion, threats, and war. What is behind this turmoil, and can we do anything about it? Billy Graham discusses the cause and solution to the many problems we face. Using the Bible to shed God’s light on our situation, he shows how rebellion against God and man is one of the major reasons for the despair and desperation we find all around the world. In World Aflame you can find new hope for a new beginning — not in the ideas of men, but in God’s gift of new life found only in Jesus Christ.

Billy Graham was an American evangelical Christian evangelist and an ordained Southern Baptist minister. Graham is best known for his evangelistic missions or “Crusades.” He believed God knew no borders or nationalities. Throughout his career, Graham preached to millions around the world. He met and prayed with every U. S. president from Dwight Eisenhower to Barack Obama.
