The B-29 long-range bombing campaign against the Japanese home islands dictated unprecedented organization and command; hence, Arnold established the Twentieth Air Force, commanded by himself from Washington and reporting directly to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. This new type of bombing offensive-distinct in command, organization, range, and weapons from the European experience-also called for exemplary operational combat leadership in the field. Here Arnold excelled in his command of the AAF, relieving a long-time colleague (Hansell) in favor of a hard-nosed operator (LeMay). This crucial move was a turning point in the Pacific war. Although the Soviet declaration of war on Japan was a factor in the Japanese surrender, it was the atomic bomb that politically shocked the Japanese to capitulation. Arnold, the architect of the bombing offensive, emphasized that Japan was already defeated in the summer of 1945 by the bombing and blockade and that it was not militarily necessary to drop the atomic bomb.

Follow this multi-disciplinary, scientific study as it examines the evidence of a great global catastrophe that occurred only 11,500 years ago. Crustal shifting, the tilting of Earth's axis, mass extinctions, upthrusted mountain ranges, rising and shrinking land masses, and gigantic volcanic eruptions and earthquakes--all indicate that a fateful confrontation with a destructive cosmic visitor must have occurred. The abundant geological, biological, and climatological evidence from this dire event calls into question many geological theories and will awaken our memories to our true--and not-so-distant--past.

David Stevenson's widely acclaimed history of World War I changes forever our understanding of that pivotal conflict. Countering the commonplace assumption that politicians lost control of events, and that the war, once it began, quickly became an unstoppable machine, Stevenson contends that politicians deliberately took risks that led to war in July 1914. Far from being overwhelmed by the unprecedented scale and brutality of the bloodshed, political leaders on both sides remained very much in control of events throughout. According to Stevenson, the disturbing reality is that the course of the war was the result of conscious choices -- including the continued acceptance of astronomical casualties. In fluid prose, Stevenson has written a definitive history of the man-made catastrophe that left lasting scars on the twentieth century. Cataclysm is a truly international history, incorporating new research on previously undisclosed records from governments in Europe and across the world. From the complex network of secret treaties and alliances that eventually drew all of Europe into the war, through the bloodbaths of Gallipoli and the Somme, to the arrival of American forces, and the massive political, economic, and cultural shifts the conflict left in its wake, Cataclysm is a major revision of World War I history.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject History Europe - Other Countries - Modern Times, Absolutism, Industrialization, grade: 1,0, National University of Ireland, Maynooth (History Dept.), course: Irish History, language: English, abstract: Historical research moved away from dramatic Irish politics towards a rather social and cultural focus. Studies in the field of history to my opinion are studies about humanity and emotions and not just about elected data and research. It is evident that the Great Famine and its data are an important issue within Irish history. Although this experience was a touchstone for Irish people, as Murphy also stated: "Irish economic history in the nineteenth century was about food and land. Clearly the most important event of the century as far as people's lives were concerned was the cataclysm of the Famine in the 1840s" [Murphy 2003; 9], it was just one and not the only reason for the changes of and within Ireland. This essay aims to outline and describe in what ways and to which extent the Famine initiated the Irish transformation.

Are there sufficient evidences to plausibly warrant positing a global Noahic Flood within the auspices of a specific Old-Earth biblical paradigm? If so, what are they? It is our firm conviction that God has allowed the passage of time to cover the blatant earthen signs of the Noahic Flood in such a way, and just enough, as to require earnest seekers of truth to use their eyes of faith and their vision of the kingdom metanarrative—along with their empirical sight and senses—to view and interpret the richness of the evidence. Prerequisites in this quest include a great respect for the authority of Holy Scripture, a pure heart with a simple desire for God’s truth, and a relentless willingness to look for both “the forest and the trees” (viz., to see the multitudes of seemingly unrelated small scenes always in light of the big picture). The negation of any of these necessities will completely nullify the veracity of one’s conclusions. However, we strongly aver that the totality of these necessities can bring the historical truth of the mystery of the Noahic Flood into a much, much greater clarity.

Cataclysm has inflicted many conflicts and desolation in the Horn of Africa, resulting in the establishment of terrorist groups, famine, and the collapse and division of governments. The war and hunger that contributed in the collapse of the Somalian government resulted in the persecution of minority groups in Somalia and led those groups of people to flee to Kenya, where the worlds oldest refugee camps would later be established as a safe haven for those minority groups. This is the incredible story of a Kenyan-born teen who later learns about her true identity as a former Somali refugee. She explores her familys history and learns about their survival in the horrific Somali civil war. As an activist, Zeynab addresses the struggles immigrant and refugee families encounter in the United States, hoping to spread awareness of immigration. In this book, she shares her experience of growing up in the United States and how her own life inspired her to become the decisive, optimistic young activist she is today.

In this absorbing narrative, Barry E.C. Boothman traces the history of Abitibi Power and Paper Limited alongside the rise and fall of the newsprint industry and the advent of Canadian corporate capitalism. In the first half of the twentieth century, Abitibi was Canada’s biggest manufacturer – an apparent success story after the Wall Street crash of 1929 and a company deemed "too big to fail" – but the company eventually ended up at the centre of the longest and most controversial bankruptcy in Canadian history. Moving from the frontier areas of northern Ontario to the heart of the continental economy, Corporate Cataclysm shows how competitive strategies, industrial organization, corporate finance, and law combined with the empire-building dreams of entrepreneurs and the concerns of politicians to generate an economic disaster. It then chronicles the disputes and intense strife that plagued Abitibi’s fourteen-year receivership.

Just after 10 am on August 27, 1883, Krakatoa was ripped apart by one of the greatest explosions ever recorded. The boom was heard 2200 miles (3500 km) away in Australia. The island collapsed in on itself and was pulverised. Some 4½ cubic miles (19 cubic km) of volcanic material was discharged into the air. A plume of dust rose 50 miles (80 km) and then orbited the Earth for years, lowering summer temperatures worldwide and creating spectacular sunsets around the globe. More than 36,000 people died. There is significantly more to tell, what you find right now that you might want to read as far as possible in one go. Happy Reading!

What cataclysmic event almost destroyed the Earth? Was this the same event that fractured the mantle of the earth which contributed to the continental drift? Did Atlantis really exist? Was an advanced civilization from a faraway planet responsible for early man’s great leap forward from the Stone Age to the Copper Age? What kernels of truth can be found amongst mythology, philosophy, religion and ancient texts that resonate with accepted scientific facts, and provide a plausible explanation of some of Earth’s mysteries? This book offers a unique perspective that identifies these kernels of truth and then proceeds to connect them to form a new picture of a very important time in the life of our planet. Jane Wright, brings to the page a logicians perspective that crosses multiple disciplines of thought, and in a creative and entertaining way, provides the reader with a unique proposal of how things might have been from 10,000 years ago to 6,000 years ago, when modern civilization began to take hold.

Newman's ethnographic study considers the ways in which the family and school environments of eleven homeless school children affected their school performance. Homelessness is revealed to be multi-faceted, serving simultaneously as a cause, result, and potentiator of their families' problems. A variety of initiatives in the realms of policy, research, and practice are suggested for addressing the problems of these youngsters, as well as the problems of the many other extremely poor school children. First published in 2000. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.

Global climate change poses not only environmental hazards but profound risks to planetary peace and stability as well. Climatic Cataclysm gathers experts on climate science, oceanography, history, political science, foreign policy, and national security to take the measure of these risks. The contributors have developed three scenarios of what the future may hold. The expected scenario relies on current scientific models to project the effects of climate change over the next 30 years. The severe scenario, which posits a much stronger climate response to current levels of carbon loading, foresees profound and potentially destabilizing global effects over the next generation or more. Finally, the catastrophic scenario is characterized by a devastating "tipping point" in the climate system, perhaps 50 or 100 years hence. In this future world, the land-based polar ice sheets have disappeared, global sea levels have risen dramatically, and the existing natural order has been destroyed beyond repair. The contributors analyze the security implications of these scenarios, which at a minimum include increased disease proliferation; tensions caused by large-scale migration; and conflict sparked by resource scarcity, particularly in Africa. They consider what we can learn from the experience of early civilizations confronted with natural disaster, and they ask what the three largest emitters of greenhouse gases—the United States, the European Union, and China—can do to reduce and manage future risks. In the coming decade, the United States faces an ominous set of foreign policy and national security challenges. Global climate change will not only complicate these tasks, but as this sobering study reveals, it may also create new challenges that dwarf those of today. Contributors include Leon Fuerth (George Washington University), Jay Gulledge (Pew Center on Global Climate Change), Alexander T. J. Lennon (Center for Strategic and International Studies), J.R. McNeill (Georgetown University), Derek Mix (Center for Strategic and International Studies), Peter Ogden (Center for American Progress), John Podesta (Center for American Progress), Julianne Smith (Center for Strategic and International Studies), Richard Weitz (Hudson Institute), and R.

When mirror twins Seth and Hadrian Castillo travel to Europe on holidays, they don’t expect the end of the world to follow them. Seth’s murder, however, puts exactly that into motion. From opposite sides of death, the Castillo twins grapple with a reality neither of them suspected, although it has been encoded in myths and legends for millennia. The Earth we know is just one of many "realms", three of which are inhabited by humans during various stages of their lives. And their afterlives... In the tradition of Philip Pullman and Ursula K. Le Guin and inspired by numerous arcane sources, the Books of the Cataclysm begin in the present world but soon propel the reader to a landscape that is simultaneously familiar and fantastic.
