The Imaginary Voyage brings together Shimon Peres, Israel’s Nobel Prize-winning statesman, and Theodor Herzl, the visionary founder of Zionism. Despite the decades that separate them, they are united with astounding literary and historical effect. Together they embark on a journey across the land they hold in common, comparing Herzl’s century-old vision with today’s reality. From the teeming streets of Tel Aviv, to the storied walls of Jerusalem; from Gueva Kibbutz to the Sea of Tiberius; from Masada to the Negev, their voyage illuminates all that has changed in this most remarkable land during the twentieth century, and all that has endured.

The 100 revolutionary women highlighted in this gorgeously illustrated book were bad in the best sense of the word: they challenged the status quo and changed the rules for all who followed. From pirates to artists, warriors, daredevils, scientists, activists, and spies, the accomplishments of these incredible women vary as much as the eras and places in which they effected change. Featuring bold watercolor portraits and illuminating essays by Ann Shen, Bad Girls Throughout History is a distinctive, worthy tribute.

Dr James Barry: A Woman Ahead of Her Time

English | ISBN: 1780748310 | 2016 | EPUB | 496 Pages | 24 MB

Dr James Barry: Inspector General of Hospitals, army surgeon, duellist, reformer, lady killer, eccentric. He performed the first Caesarean in Africa, was deported from St Helena and gave Florence Nightingale a dressing down in the Crimea. At home, he was surrounded by a menagerie of animals, including a cat, a goat, a parrot and half a dozen small terriers. Long ago, in another life in Cork, Ireland, he had also been a mother.
This is the amazing true story of Margaret Ann Bulkey, the young woman who broke the rules of Georgian society to become one of the most respected surgeons of the century. Her life became one long, audacious act of deception that saw her rise to positions no woman had ever reached before, but it also left her isolated, even costing her the chance to be with the man she loved.
