Yosemite in the Fifties: The Iron Age

Companion to the classic Yosemite in the Sixties, this book uses the words of the climbers of the time and artfully restored photographs to chronicle the historic first ascents of Yosemite’s “mile-high” granite walls, the legendary personalities who risked their lives to climb them, and how their endeavors initiated the birth of adventure sports.

Better than half a century after the first ascent of El Capitan, the deeds of Yosemite’s 1950s-era Iron Age are no longer viewed as climbs or mere adventures.

A History of Warfare

by: John Keegan
The acclaimed author and preeminent military historian John Keegan examines centuries of human conflict. From primitive man in the bronze age to the end of the cold war in the twentieth century, Keegan shows how armed conflict has been a primary preoccupation throughout the history of civilization and how deeply rooted its practice has become in our cultures. 

"Keegan is at once the most readable and the most original of living military historians . . . A History of Warfare is perhaps the most remarkable study of warfare that has yet been written.

The New Iron Age

by: Greg Currey
"In Herrob, a sturdy place to sleep, a hearty meal, and warm clothing was the goal, although no one expected to realize it." But Joan no longer lives on the streets of Herrob. She has a home in clean, safe, Eram. Every day she achieves what she thought was impossible. So why does she feel so dissatisfied? Joan's journey of fear and loss, renewal and love is a thorough exploration of Eram. The new civilization has risen to prosperity based on a new ideology: fascism. Joan has never heard of fascism, and is initially wary, but Eram's success causes her to come to appreciate the political system.

The Culture of the English People: Iron Age to the Industrial Revolution

by: N. J. G. Pounds
This wide-ranging book traces the development of popular culture in England from the Iron Age, when it first became apparent as a whole, to the eighteenth century. The book deals in depth with the essential foundations--shelter and housing, warmth and security, furnishings and domestic convenience, food and its preparation, and ultra-familial and ultra-communal relations. A separate chapter is devoted to the culture of towns. The text is illustrated throughout by objects, artifacts and structures, many of which are visual representations of earlier cultures, notably in sculpture and decoration.
