The Clandestine Radio Operators
All Resistance and radio buffs have been waiting for this book, abundantly illustrated (300 photos 70 of which in color) and giving an exhaustive account of the real champions of Free France – the Allied underground radio operators parachuted into Occupied Territory. Ruthlessly pursued by the Germans, the radio operators had a life expectancy of six months... For the first time, the training they received in England is described in detail and five accounts describe how these heroes lived daily. Most of the radio equipment, some of which is very rare, is shown for the first time with color photos. The son of a Resistance worker, Jean-Louis Perquin has earned the friendship and the trust of the veterans and has drawn attention to himself by publishing articles on what Allied special agents wore when they were dropped into enemy occupied territory. In touch with a lot of historians and museum curators in the States, Great Britain, Norway and France, he has drawn up this first title in the "Resistance" collection with devotion and humility.
Rédigée au début du XIIIe siècle par l'éminent historien islandais Snorri Sturluson, l'Edda constitue le recueil de mythologie nordique le plus complet que nous ait légué le Moyen Âge scandinave. Au cours de récits souvent hauts en couleur, l'auteur retrace tout d'abord la création de l'univers à l'origine des temps, avec notamment l'épisode du démembrement d'Ymir, le géant primitif ; puis il présente les principaux dieux de l'antiquité païenne et raconte leurs exploits, leurs aventures et leurs querelles, tandis qu'à l'arrière-plan se profile de plus en plus nettement le drame du monde, le fameux Crépuscule des dieux, dont la description particulièrement saisissante constitue le point d'orgue de l'ouvrage.Bien qu'il ait été conçu plus de deux siècles après la conversion offcielle de l'Islande au christianisme, ce traité témoigne d'une intime connaissance des poèmes mythologiques composés à l'époque païenne tant en Norvège que dans l'île des sagas. À ce titre, l'Edda offre un intérêt capital pour l'étude de l'ancienne religion scandinave, de même que pour les enquêtes de mythologie comparée indo-européenne.Cette nouvelle traduction repose sur un examen approfondi de la tradition manuscrite de l'ouvre, en sorte qu'à la différence des traductions précédentes, elle tient largement compte des principales variantes fournies par les manuscrits de l'Edda.
Twelve Years a Slave
Solomon Northup was a free man, the son of an emancipated Negro Slave. Until the spring of 1841 he lived a simple, uneventful life with his wife and three children in Upstate New York. Then, suddenly, he fell victim to a series of bizarre events that make this one of the most amazing autobiographies ever written. Northup accepted an offer from two strangers in Saratoga, New York, to catch up with their traveling circus and play in its band. But when the chase ended, Northup had been drugged, beaten, and sold to a slave trader in Washington, D.C. Subsequently, he was shipped to New Orleans, where he was purchased by a planter in the Red River region of Louisiana. For the next twelve years Northup lived as a chattel slave under several masters. He might well have died a slave, except for another set of bizarre circumstances which enabled him to get word to his family and finally regain his freedom. These elements alone -- the kidnapping, enslavement, and rescue -- are sufficient for a sensational story. But Northup provides more. He was a shrewd observer of people and events. His memory was remarkable. He described cultivation of cotton and sugar in the Deep South. He detailed the daily routine and general life of the Negro slave. Indeed, he vividly portrayed the world of slavery -- from the underside. Originally published in 1853, Northup's autobiography is regarded as one of the best accounts of American Negro slavery ever written by a slave. It is reprinted in full here for the first time, as the initial volume in The Library of Southern Civilization. Northup's account has been carefully checked by the editors and has been found to be remarkably accurate. To his own narrative of a long and tragic adventure, Professors Eakin and Logsdon have added significant new details about Northup and the plantation country where he spent most of his time as a slave. Heretofore unknown information about the capture and trial of Northup's kidnappers has been included, adding still another fascinating episode to an already astounding story.

The Arch Conjuror of England
Outlandish alchemist and magician, political intelligencer, apocalyptic prophet, and converser with angels, John Dee (1527–1609) was one of the most colorful and controversial figures of the Tudor world. In this fascinating book—the first full-length biography of Dee based on primary historical sources—Glyn Parry explores Dee's vast array of political, magical, and scientific writings and finds that they cast significant new light on policy struggles in the Elizabethan court, conservative attacks on magic, and Europe's religious wars. John Dee was more than just a fringe magus, Parry shows: he was a major figure of the Reformation and Renaissance.

In the past 31 years, there has been a lot of ink -- actual and virtual -- spilled on the subject of the Necronomicon. Some have derided it as a clumsy hoax; others have praised it as a powerful grimoire. As the decades have passed, more information has come to light both on the book's origins and discovery, and on the information contained within its pages. The Necronomicon has been found to contain formulae for spiritual transformation, consistent with some of the most ancient mystical processes in the world, processes that were not public knowledge when the book was first published, processes that involve communion with the stars. In spite of all the controversy, the first edition sold out before it was published. And it has never been out of print since then. This year, the original designer of the 1977 edition and the original editor have joined forces to present a new, deluxe hardcover edition of the most feared, most reviled, and most desired occult book on the planet.
