READING: The New York Times bestseller that tells the story of Britain’s greatest and worst dynasty—“a real-life Game of Thrones” (The Wall Street Journal)—by the author of The Templars The first Plantagenet kings inherited a blood-soaked realm from the Normans and transformed it into an empire that stretched at its peak from Scotland to Jerusalem. In this epic narrative history of courage, treachery, ambition, and deception, Dan Jones resurrects the unruly royal dynasty that preceded the Tudors. They produced England’s best and worst kings: Henry II and his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, twice a queen and the most famous woman in Christendom; their son Richard the Lionheart, who fought Saladin in the Third Crusade; and his conniving brother King John, who was forced to grant his people new rights under the Magna Carta, the basis for our own bill of rights. Combining the latest academic research with a gift for storytelling, Jones vividly recreates the great battles of Bannockburn, Crécy, and Sluys and reveals how the maligned kings Edward II and Richard II met their downfalls. This is the era of chivalry and the Black Death, the Knights Templar, the founding of parliament, and the Hundred Years’ War, when England’s national identity was forged by the sword.

READING: England, 1154. As Henry II seizes the throne after years of turmoil, a new dynasty is poised to haul this hitherto turbulent nation out from the Dark Ages and transform it into the nation state we recognize today. Featuring some of England's greatest but also most notorious kings, the house of Plantagenet would reign for over 300 blood-soaked, yet foundational, years. The dynasty provides some of the most evocative names in our history: from the brave yet rash Richard the Lionheart, his treacherous brother John, the hapless Richard II, and the hero of Agincourt Henry V, through to the controversial Richard III. And in this authoritative, intelligent and grippingly written book, acclaimed historian Derek Wilson brings this thrilling era to life.

READING: Learn about The Plantagenets with iMinds insightful knowledge series. The House of Plantagenet was a royal house of 15 monarchs who ruled England from 1154-1485. The Plantagenets originally came from France, where they ruled a county called Anjou. They were a strange and powerful family, complex and prone to insanity. Their founder, Count Fulk III (known as "The Black"), had his wife burned at the stake in her wedding dress when he discovered she was sleeping with a goatherd. His great grandson, Geoffrey V gave the dynasty its name. The word Plantagenet comes from the name of a flower: plante genet in French, or "common broom." Geoffrey V was said to have worn a sprig of the golden flower in his battle helmet. iMinds brings targeted knowledge to your eReading device with short information segments to whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.

READING: There are periods in history when things are seen dimly as through a veil. Such were the years from 1377 to 1485. During this time the Chronicles were silent and the sources of information few. And yet these were eventful years, filled with important, strange, colorful and sometimes mystifying events. The Wars of the Roses were fought; a few men began to preach and a nation began to listen to new beliefs; the stout men of the soil rose against feudal injustices; and the greatest of mysteries grew out of the deaths of two princes in the Tower of London. This is the period covered by Thomas B. Costain in THE LAST PLANTAGENETS. It is not claiming too much to say that here the veil has been raised and that throughout the book a bright light plays on this century of excitement and romance and stories stranger than fiction. Here we read of a king who devoted much of his reign to revenge; of the same young monarch riding out boldly to face the peasants demanding a fairer deal; of the winning of Fair Kate of France by the spectacular warrior king, Henry V; of the emergence of a commoner known in history as the Kingmaker; of a ruler who condemned his brother to death and the carrying out of the sentence, according to public report at the time, by drowning the prince in a butt of wine. By way of climax to the saga of the extraordinary Plantagenets with their brilliant successes, tragic reverses and wild extravagances, the last section of the book is devoted to a summary of the case of Richard III. Was Richard the villainous hunchback of stage and story who had his nephews murdered to clear his way to the throne? Or was he the whipping boy of history, whose voice could not be raised in defense from the grave and whose friends did not dare speak out? All the evidence in this unsolved mystery is gathered up and the author achieves in the telling a mounting tension which has never before, perhaps, been reached. Readers today might well raise their eyes from the perusal of newspaper murders to find in this case the strangest and most gripping story of all. This is the fourth, and last, volume in what Thomas B. Costain originally intended to be a history of England. The three earlier volumes were published under the titles The Conquerors, The Magnificent Century and The Three Edwards. Some time in the future the publishers may combine the four, with some necessary additions, to be issued as a history of the Plantagenet kings.

READING: KISAH TENTANG YERUSALEM ADALAH KISAH TENTANG DUNIA Yerusalem adalah kota universal, ibukota dua bangsa, dan tempat suci tiga agama. Kota warisan berbagai kekaisaran yang di masa kini menjadi medan perang bagi bentrokan peradaban ini dipercayai bakal jadi tempat penghancuran terakhir dunia di Hari Kiamat. Bagaimana kota kecil yang terpencil ini menjadi Kota Suci, “pusat dunia” dan kini menjadi kunci perdamaian di Timur Tengah? Dalam buku yang sangat memikat ini, riwayat Yerusalem dikisahkan melalui cerita perang, cinta, dan wahyu yang melibatkan pria dan wanita: raja, ratu, nabi, penyair, orang suci, penakluk, dan pelacur—sosok-sosok yang menciptakan, menghancurkan, mencatat, dan memercayai keyakinan masing-masing di Yerusalem. Di dalamnya, tertampilkan pula beragam karakter tokoh-tokoh berpengaruh dalam sejarah dunia: dari Suleiman al-Qanuni dan Shalahuddin al-Ayyubi (Saladin) hingga Cleopatra, Caligula, dan Churchill; dari Ibrahim sampai Yesus dan Muhammad; dari Izebel, Nebukadnezar, Herod, dan Nero di zaman kuno hingga Kaiser, Disraeli, Mark Twain, Rasputin, dan Lawrence dari Arabia di masa modern. Dari Raja Dawud hingga Barack Obama, dari kelahiran Yudaisme, Kristen, dan Islam hingga konflik Palestina-Israel, inilah epos sejarah 3.000 tahun ihwal kesucian, keimanan, fanatisme, identitas, nasionalisme, pembantaian, dan koeksistensi. Inilah kisah tentang bagaimana Yerusalem menjadi Yerusalem; satu-satunya kota yang hidup dua kali—di surga dan di bumi.

READING: Continuing his exploration of the pathways of British history, Timothy Venning examines the turning points of the period from the death of William I to the reign of Edward III and a little beyond. As always, he discusses the crucial junctions at which History could easily have taken a different turn and analyses the possible and likely results. While necessarily speculative to a degree, the scenarios are all highly plausible and rooted in a firm understanding of actually events and their context. In so doing, Timothy Venning gives the reader a clearer understanding of the factors at play and why things happened the way they did, as well as a tantalizing view of what might so easily have been different. ??Key scenarios discussed in this volume include: ??¥ The civil war of 1136-53, how either Stephen or Matilda might have won quick and decisive victory and the likely consequences.??¥ What if Richard the Lionheart had not gone on Crusade, leaving the inept John to rule in his place? Could the English (Angevin) Empire in France have been saved? What if that fatal crossbow bolt had missed Richard in 1199, sparing him an early death???¥ What if Edward I's riding accident in 1294 had been fatal, leaving Edward II to succeed at 10 years of age? ??¥ A whole chapter deals with scenarios surrounding the Scottish kings - What if Robert the Bruce had been killed in 1306???As featured in The Argus (Brighton), Sussex Express and New Milton Advertiser
