Up to 2,000,000 Jews allegedly died in gas chambers in the Sobibor camp in Poland in 1942 and 1943. The corpses were allegedly buried but later incinerated on pyres. This book shows that these claims are based only on the selective use of contradictory and at times outright absurd testimonies. Archeological surveys of the camp are analyzed..."

Serious students of Druidism and Paganism, as well as Celtic historians, are sure to include Barddas in their libraries. Barddas contains the only extant description of Bardo-Druidic Celtic philosophy. It is a metaphysical and spiritual description of beliefs handed down by word of mouth by Druidic initiates from before the Roman occupation of the British isles. Culled from 16th-century notes and compiled into book form, Barddas reveals a belief system with a wide range of influences, including Judeo-Christian and ancient Roman. Yet there are beliefs and views expressed within that appear to be unique to Celtic thought and oddly similar to Eastern traditions. On its publication in the 19th century, Barddas stirred controversy. Some critics claimed that it was completely made up or based on forgeries. Others defended it by pointing out similarities to other surviving Celtic documents with clear provenance. Photo-offset from the first printing, this edition of Barddas includes the original Welsh on verso pages with the English translation running on the recto pages. John Matthews, popular writer about all things Celtic, provides an introduction outlining the history and contemporary importance of Barddas.
The Age of Sinan
"In this work, Gulru Necipoglu convinces us that Sinan's rich variety of mosque designs sprang from a process of negotiation between the architect and his patrons, rather than from the restless, unrestrained formal experimentation previously attributed to him. The author is the first to use a broad range of published and unpublished primary sources specifically in order to illuminate the cultural setting in which Sinan's monuments were produced and 'received'. She describes how Sinan created a layered system of mosque types, reflecting social status and territorial rank, shaped by ideas of identity, memory and decorum. Seen from this perspective, Sinan's monuments, with their highly standardized forms, used in ingeniously varied combinations, acquire dimensions of meaning that have not been recognized hitherto." "Illustrated with hundreds of specially commissioned photographs and architectural drawings, The Age of Sinan is unlikely ever to be superseded."--BOOK JACKET.
