Explanation of the Book:

A Most-Anticipated Book of the Year: Newsweek * Refinery29 “Moving and powerful.” —Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and author In 2012, an Oregon mother named Julie Keith opened up a package of Halloween decorations. The cheap foam headstones had been $5 at Kmart, too good a deal to pass up. But when she opened the box, something fell out that she wasn’t expecting: an SOS letter, handwritten in broken English by the prisoner who’d made and packaged the items. In Made in China, investigative journalist Amelia Pang pulls back the curtain on the labor camps that create the home goods we buy at Kmart, the fast fashion we buy at H&M, and a shocking number of other products besides. The book follows the life of Sun Yi, the Chinese engineer who wrote the note after finding himself a political prisoner, locked in a gulag for joining a forbidden meditation practice and campaigning for the freedom to do so. There he worked alongside petty criminals, civil rights activists, and anyone else the Chinese government decided to “reeducate,” carving foam gravestones and stitching clothing for more than fifteen hours a day. In chasing this story, journalist Amelia Pang has conducted extensive interviews with Sun Yi and the people who knew him. She also identified and interviewed others who endured similar horrors, and who inflicted them. And she traveled to China to follow falsified supply chains herself, tracking trucks from labor camps to warehouses. The story she uncovers is a call to action, urging the American consumer to ask more questions and demand more answers from the companies they patronize.

The Lost Hall of Records Edgar Cayce s Forgotten Record of Human History in the Ancient Yucatan

Editor: Unknown
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Deep in the heart of the largely unexplored jungles of the Yucatan lies a storehouse of records telling the history of all humanity and revealing the origin and meaning of life. According to the "Sleeping Prophet" Edgar Cayce, nearly 13,000 years ago these records were buried at three separate locations in the world by priests of Atlantis, just before the final destruction of this fabled continent. The Hall of Records at Giza in Egypt has eluded discovery and a second hall is covered by the Atlantic Ocean near the island of Bimini in the Bahamas. The third Hall, located in the general area of the Yucatan, may now be nearing discovery. The site, Piedras Negras, Guatemala, is definitely concealing ancient buried records.In 1933 Cayce related that the third record hall, located in the Yucatan, was at that moment being excavated by archaelogists representing the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) and that some of the artifacts were sent to their museum. Subsequent research clearly showed that the only place being excavated in the Yucatan by Penn was Piedras Negras. As part of the research for this book, the actual field notes and many artifacts from the Piedras Negras excavations were examined by Dr. Lora Little at the Penn Museum.In this compelling book, John Van Auken, author of numerous Cayce-related books, and Dr. Lora Little present Cayce's story of how and why a Hall of Records was established in the Yucatan. Backed by solid archaeological evidence and astronomical correlations, the authors show how the Mayan creation story involves the constellation Orion and why Piedras Negras is the likely site of the Hall of Records. In addition, the authors reveal that Cayce has told us what is recorded in the Hall of Records through his many Akasha "readings." This is a reprint of the original 2000 bestselling issue of the book, and it contains a new author Epilogue by Dr. Lora Little detailing her discoveries visiting the site along with new photographs of the site. The book is illustrated with 172 pictures, maps, and line drawings, fully indexed.

Explanation of the Book:

The Ancient Human Occupation of Britain Project (AHOB) funded by the Leverhulme Trust began in 2001 and brought together researchers from a range of disciplines with the aim of investigating the record of human presence in Britain from the earliest occupation until the end of the last Ice Age, about 12,000 years ago. Study of changes in climate, landscape and biota over the last million years provides the environmental backdrop to understanding human presence and absence together with the development of new technologies. This book brings together the multidisciplinary work of the project. The chapters present the results of new fieldwork and research on old sites from museum collections using an array of new analytical techniques. Features an up-to-date treatment of the record of human presence in the British Isles during the Palaeolithic period (700,000 - 10,000 years before present) Takes multidisciplinary approach that includes archaeology, geochemistry, geochronology, stratigraphy and sedimentology Coincides with the culmination of the AHOB project in 2010, providing a benchmark statement on the record of human occupation in Britain that can be utilized and tested by future research
