Science, Philosophy and Cosmology of the Yugas: Ancient Esoteric Wisdom from the Sages of India Audiobook

Science, Philosophy and Cosmology of the Yugas: Ancient Esoteric Wisdom from the Sages of India

Author: Norah Romney Narrator: Demitra Release Date: May 2021

Of all the many unexplained phenomena, experiences, and objects in the world, the ones that hold a great deal of fascination for most people are known as 'ancient anomalies.' These are ancient objects by scientific measure but in form or construction that appear to be relatively modern. They are impossible fossils, out-of-time technology, anachronistic artifacts, or even ancient ruins. In other words, if our history of the world is correct, they just should not exist. Furthermore, there are many examples - many more than geologists, archaeologists, and other scientists care to admit. Why are they so fascinating? Many reasons. There are some critical timelines to remember before we start. 11,500 BC is the beginning of the most recent descending Satya Yuga. 11,100 BC is the end of the 400-year transition period (sandhi) from ascending Satya Yuga. 7,100 BC is the beginning of the 400-year transition period (sandhi) to descending Treta Yuga, and 6,700 BC is the end of the most recent descending Satya Yuga.

Empire of Silver: A New Monetary History of China Audiobook

Empire of Silver: A New Monetary History of China

Author: Jin Xu Narrator: Nancy Wu Release Date: April 2021

This revelatory account of the ways silver shaped Chinese history shows how an obsession with "white metal" held China back from financial modernization. First used as currency during the Song dynasty in around 900 CE, silver gradually became central to China's economic framework and was officially monetized in the middle of the Ming dynasty during the sixteenth century. However, due to the early adoption of paper money in China, silver was not formed into coins but became a cumbersome "weighing currency," for which ingots had to be constantly examined for weight and purity-an unwieldy practice that lasted for centuries. While China's interest in silver spurred new avenues of trade and helped increase the country's global economic footprint, Jin Xu argues that, in the long run, silver played a key role in the struggles and entanglements that led to the decline of the Chinese empire.

Where Great Powers Meet: America and China in Southeast Asia Audiobook

Where Great Powers Meet: America and China in Southeast Asia

Author: David Shambaugh Narrator: Eric Jason Martin Release Date: April 2021

The United States and China are engaged in a broad-gauged and global competition for power. While this competition ranges across the entire world, it is centered in Asia. In this book, David Shambaugh focuses on the critical sub-region of Southeast Asia. The United States and China constantly vie for position and influence across this enormously significant area-and the outcome of this contest will do much to determine whether Asia leaves the American orbit after seven decades and falls into a new Chinese sphere of influence. Just as importantly, to the extent that there is a global 'power transition' occurring from the US to China, the fate of Southeast Asia will be a good indicator. Presently, both powers bring important assets to bear in their competition. The United States continues to possess a depth and breadth of security ties, soft power, and direct investment across the region that empirically outweigh China's. For its part, China has more diplomatic influence, much greater trade, and geographic proximity. In assessing the likelihood of a regional power transition, Shambaugh examines how ASEAN (the Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and its member states maneuver and the degree to which they align with one or the other power.

The Gulf of Tonkin Incident: The History of the Controversial Event that Escalated America’s Involve Audiobook

The Gulf of Tonkin Incident: The History of the Controversial Event that Escalated America’s Involve

Author: Charles River Editors Narrator: Daniel Houle Release Date: April 2021

In 1964, the USS Maddox was an intelligence-gathering naval ship stationed off the coast of North Vietnam for the purpose of gathering information about the ongoing conflict between North Vietnam and South Vietnam. The borders between the two sides were in dispute, and the United States was less up to date on changes in these borders than the two belligerents. In the process, the USS Maddox accidentally crossed over into North Vietnamese shores, and when the ship was sighted by North Vietnamese naval units, they attacked the Maddox on August 2, 1964. Though no Americans were hurt, naval crews were on heightened alert as the Maddox retreated to South Vietnam, where it was met by the USS Turner Joy. Two days later, the Maddox and Turner Joy, both with crews already on edge as a result of the events of August 2, were certain they were being followed by hostile North Vietnamese boats, and both fired at targets popping up on their radar. The fighting on August 2, can be verified through a variety of sources and an accounting of materials expended. However, the mystery of the Gulf of Tonkin begins with what the Maddox’s Captain John J. Herrick believed was a second attack that spanned August 4 and into the following morning. He reported to officials that there was such an attack despite lack of visual confirmation. The Ticonderoga passed along the report of an August 4 attack, with some visual evidence gathered by sailors and officers.

Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China Audiobook

Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China

Author: Ezra F. Vogel Narrator: Eric Jason Martin Release Date: March 2021

Once described by Mao Zedong as a 'needle inside a ball of cotton,' Deng was the pragmatic yet disciplined driving force behind China's radical transformation in the late twentieth century. He confronted the damage wrought by the Cultural Revolution, dissolved Mao's cult of personality, and loosened the economic and social policies that had stunted China's growth. Obsessed with modernization and technology, Deng opened trade relations with the West, which lifted hundreds of millions of his countrymen out of poverty. Yet at the same time he answered to his authoritarian roots, most notably when he ordered the crackdown in June 1989 at Tiananmen Square. Deng's youthful commitment to the Communist Party was cemented in Paris in the early 1920s, among a group of Chinese student-workers that also included Zhou Enlai. Deng returned home in 1927 to join the Chinese Revolution on the ground floor. In the fifty years of his tumultuous rise to power, he endured accusations, purges, and even exile before becoming China's preeminent leader from 1978 to 1989 and again in 1992. When he reached the top, Deng saw an opportunity to creatively destroy much of the economic system he had helped build for five decades as a loyal follower of Mao-and he did not hesitate.

Return to Victory: MacArthur's Epic Liberation of the Philippines Audiobook

Return to Victory: MacArthur's Epic Liberation of the Philippines

Author: James P. Duffy Narrator: Aaron Abano Release Date: March 2021

General Douglas MacArthur's bloody campaign to defeat die-hard Japanese forces and liberate the Philippines   "I shall return," General Douglas MacArthur promised the Filipino people following the Japanese invasion and occupation of the Philippines in spring 1942. The people there believed MacArthur's vow-and even Americans were stirred by his dramatic pledge. Now, two and half years later, MacArthur was ready to fulfill his promise--the liberation of the Philippines was about to begin.   It would not be an easy campaign. The more than 7,000 islands of the Philippine archipelago were the key to taking down the Japanese Empire-and the Imperial forces were prepared to sacrifice every man and every ship to prevent MacArthur from regaining control of them.   Covering both the strategic and tactical aspects of the campaign through the participation of its soldiers, sailors, and airmen, as well as its commanders, James P. Duffy leads readers through a vivid account of the nearly year-long, bloody campaign to defeat over a quarter million die-hard Japanese defenders in the Pacific theater. Return to Victory is a wide-ranging, dramatic and stirring account of MacArthur's epic liberation of the Philippines.

The Opium War Audiobook

The Opium War

Author: Brian Inglis Narrator: Nigel Patterson Release Date: March 2021

1839. Trade is the stalwart of the British Empire. China threatens Britain's Opium trade. Britain and China go to war. When Britain sent troops to compel the Chinese to accept imports of opium, they opened what is argued to be one of the most disgraceful chapters in the history of the Empire. How did the situation arise? How did opium exports become so crucial to the British economy? How did the British come to be as addicted to opium revenue as the Chinese were to the drug itself? Brian Inglis gives the answers to these and other questions in this meticulously researched study of The Opium War. Shocking, shaming, but fascinating throughout.

Stronger: Adapting America's China Strategy in an Age of Competitive Interdependence Audiobook

Stronger: Adapting America's China Strategy in an Age of Competitive Interdependence

Author: Ryan Hass Narrator: David Colacci Release Date: March 2021

An examination of the US-China relationship that charts a new path for America focusing on its existing advantages. Ryan Hass charts a path forward in America's relationship and rivalry with China rooted in the relative advantages America already possesses. Hass argues that while competition will remain the defining trait of the relationship, both countries will continue to be impacted-for good or ill-by their capacity to coordinate on common challenges that neither can solve on its own, such as pandemic disease, global economic recession, climate change, and nuclear nonproliferation. Hass makes the case that the United States will have greater success in outpacing China economically and outshining it in questions of governance if it focuses more on improving its own condition at home than on trying to impede Chinese initiatives. He argues that the task at hand is not to stand in China's way and turn a rising power into an enemy in the process but to renew America's advantages in its competition with China.

The Ni-Go Project: The History and Legacy of Imperial Japan's Nuclear Weapons Program during World W Audiobook

The Ni-Go Project: The History and Legacy of Imperial Japan's Nuclear Weapons Program during World W

Author: Charles River Editors Narrator: Daniel Houle Release Date: March 2021

The Manhattan Project would ultimately yield the "Little Boy" and "Fat Man" bombs that released more than 100 Terajoules of energy at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but as it turned out, the Axis were not far behind with their own nuclear weapons program. When the Nazis' quest for a nuclear weapon began in earnest in 1939, no one really had a handle on how important nuclear weapons would prove to war and geopolitics. The attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, along with the Cold War-era tests and their accompanying mushroom clouds, would demonstrate the true power and terror of nuclear weapons, but in the late 1930s these bombs were only vaguely being thought through, particularly after the successful first experiment to split the atom by a German scientist. The nuclear age itself was in its infancy, barely 35 years old, but within a few short years the advent of nuclear war loomed over the world and the prospect of the enemy winning the nuclear race kept Allied leaders awake at night. In November 1921, roughly a year after the Treaty of Versailles came into effect, Japan, Britain, and the United States gathered to sign another treaty of disarmament at the Washington Naval Conference. However, Japan opted against renewing the pact in the mid-1930s, and around the same time, Germany openly breached the terms of the former treaty and began to restock their weapons. This gave rise to the birth of a new and unprecedented arms race, one that had catastrophically disastrous consequences about a decade later. Although their project is typically overlooked given the American use of the bombs and then the Soviets following suit early on in the Cold War, the Japanese avidly pursued nuclear weapons as well. The Ni-Go Project: The History and Legacy of Imperial Japan's Nuclear Weapons Program during World War II examines Japan's race to reach the ultimate goal during the war, how they went about their objectives, and why they failed.

The Ninja: The History and Legacy of Feudal Japan’s Secret Agents Audiobook

The Ninja: The History and Legacy of Feudal Japan’s Secret Agents

Author: Charles River Editors Narrator: Colin Fluxman Release Date: March 2021

To most people in the West, particularly the youth, the mere mention of Japan immediately evokes various images. A delectable rainbow of sushi, hand-rolled temaki, and platters of crispy, golden-brown tempura. An idyllic, crystal-clear lake flanked by trees covered with delicate, cotton-candy-pink sakura blossoms. A montage of unique, hand-drawn cartoons that are a masterful mix of delightfully exaggerated proportions, features, and colors, and elements of arresting realism, collectively known as “anime.” Then, of course, there's the ninja, a willowy, graceful figure decked out in black from head to toe, his glinting eyes peering out from the window of his balaclava. He flits from rooftop to rooftop in stunning somersaults and slinks into the shadows, watching his unsuspecting marks from afar and calculating their every move. Then, as quickly as he came, he strikes, hurling throwing stars, twirling his nunchucks, and hacking away with his trusty sword, exterminating his targets with dizzying, lightning-quick speed and superhuman precision. At least, this is how those unfamiliar with the ancient art of ninjutsu, or shinobi-jutsu, see them.   Ninjas are, without a doubt, one of the most timeless and far-reaching cultural staples ever to emerge from Japan. They have become a global phenomenon, and there are countless depictions of ninjas in comic books, films, TV shows, video games, toys, and other forms of popular culture around the world, not to mention their continued relevance as a “conventional” go-to Halloween costume. Kids across the world are intimately familiar with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Snake Eyes from the G.I. Joe franchise, Scorpion from Mortal Kombat, and Black Noir from The Boys. Ninjas have also been featured in a slew of other international movies and TV shows.
