Animal Farm by George Orwell
Animal Farm is a satirical allegorical novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945. The book tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer, hoping to create a society where the animals can be equal, free, and happy. Ultimately, the rebellion is betrayed, and the farm ends up in a state as bad as it was before, under the dictatorship of a pig named Napoleon.
The original title was Animal Farm: A Fairy Story, but U.S. publishers dropped the subtitle when it was published in 1946, and only one of the translations during Orwell's lifetime kept it. Other titular variations include subtitles like “A Satire” and “A Contemporary Satire”.
The Art of War Sun Tzu Bestseller Book The Art of War
The Art of War is traditionally attributed to an ancient Chinese military general known as Sun Tzu meaning “Master Sun”. Sun Tzu was traditionally said to have lived in the 6th century BC, but The Art of War's earliest parts probably date to at least 100 years later.
Sun Tzu was a Chinese general, military strategist, and philosopher whose books have universal resonance even in the contemporary time. The Art of War has inspired Mao Zedong’s writings about Guerrilla warfare. Ho Chi Minh translated The Art of War for his generals to study.
Sun Tzu’s Art of War is a widely acclaimed book on military strategy that has influenced and shaped the idea of Western and Eastern nations' military philosophy. It presents complete instructions on how to win battles and manage conflicts. The theories proposed in Art of War are extremely beneficial on the battleground and have been tried and tested by many successful military generals around the world. It is difficult to ascertain exactly when was this book written and many historians have ascribed it to different times.
The Lesser Key of Solomon
"Samuel Liddell (8 or 11 January 1854 – 5 or 20 November 1918), born Samuel Liddell Mathers, was a British occultist. He is primarily known as one of the founders of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a ceremonial magic order of which offshoots still exist. He became so synonymous with the order that Golden Dawn scholar Israel Regardie observed in retrospect that “the Golden Dawn was MacGregor Mathers."
Mathers added the “MacGregor” surname as a claim to Highland Scottish heritage. He was a practicing vegetarian, or (according to some accounts) vegan, an outspoken anti-vivisectionist, and a non-smoker. It is known that his main interests were magic and the theory of war, his first book being a translation of a French military manual, Practical Instruction in Infantry Campaigning Exercise (1884). Mathers became increasingly eccentric in his later years as was noted by W. B. Yeats.
Often cited as one of the most influential works of short fiction of the 20th century, Metamorphosis is widely studied in colleges and universities across the western world. Nobel Peace Prize winner Elias Canetti described it as “one of the few great and perfect works of the poetic imagination written..."
