Time Detectives
Time Detectives by Brian Fagan (History/Biography)
Travel with the Anthropologist Fagan to digs in various parts of the earth to achieve insight into the lives of the people living there and then. Discover the amazing rapidity that wheat could have become domesticated in the Middle East (p.110), how beer was brewed in ancient Egypt (p. 174), how mass buffalo hunts were conducted in prehistoric Canada (p.58ff). Indeed, with the new technology, what was once considered "pre" historic is becoming more and more a tangible part of our history. -- Added by Konsulentin on 01/15/2018

When Breath Becomes Air
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi (History/Biography)
This book falls under the foreign country described by Shakespeare in Hamlet "The undiscover'd country, from whose bourn No traveller returns". The journey into death is a trip each of us will experience only once, not all of us as such an observant participant as Kalanithi. -- Added by Konsulentin on 01/15/2018
