1. Distracted and Defeated: the rulers and the ruled
Author: by Mike Bhangu
Published at: BBP (March 20, 2017)
From time to time, the “haves” of society shape and manipulate the type of information the “have-nots” absorb and become. The “haves” tamper with information so to control the type of thoughts and actions the “have-nots” might conjure. If the “have-nots” were free to think freely, they might challenge the status quo.
If the current state of affairs is modified, “the haves” might lose their status as “the haves” and the power they’re accustom to. The accumulation of each instance has birthed an illusion and every person is subject to the misinformation.
To make matters worse, most people are born with a trusting mindset and do not expect the deception. Nor are they prepared for it. The mystery is worldwide and evident throughout written history. The manner in which the world is presented isn’t complete and fabrications are scattered throughout the chronology.

3. Hélène's World: Hélène Desportes of Seventeenth-Century Quebec
Author: by Susan McNelley
Published at: Etta Heritage Press (June 17, 2013)
Hlne Desportes, born in 1620, was the first child of French parents to be born in Quebec and to survive. For nine years, she lived in Samuel de Champlain’s Habitation. In 1629, the little settlement was captured by the English. Hlne, along with the majority of the other French settlers, was put on an English ship and taken to France.
She returned to Quebec in 1634 and spent the remainder of her life in the little colony. She was married twice, had fifteen children, and seventy grandchildren. No portrait of Hlne exits. There are no memoirs, no diaries, nor any letters to guide the biographer.
Nevertheless, there are public records and other primary sources from which we are able to piece together her life. This, then, is her remarkable story, set against the backdrop of France’s efforts to establish a colony in the New World along the banks of the St. Lawrence River.

Did Bill Clinton actually stop a genocide in Kosovo, as we’re told? The answer to all those questions is no.

10. A Beautiful Destruction
Author: by Mike Bhangu
Published at: BBP (March 28, 2015)
Like it or not, the populous were born inside a box of limited knowledge and without the awareness of the restricting disposition. This phenomenon renders the masses easy to rule. A factual and philosophical commentary, “A Beautiful Destruction” attempts to exemplify the limitations, so to break free of the matrix.
Divided into three chapters, “A Beautiful Destruction” will address several notions that might not be completely accurate, and the focus will be on the market, government, the consumer culture, and the negative impact these three have on a person. Chapter 1: The Market and MeThe practice of deprivation is used by the market.
The majority of a nation’s people are financially and socially held back. Divided into two parts, Chapter One is a must-read for anyone wondering why their financial and social situation is in the pits. You’ll discover why the cost of living is so high, why wages are so low, why the savings account has been declining, the myth tied to a nine-to-five, the market conditions that influence an underdeveloped value system, the god of the filthy rich, and that god’s progeny.
11. Benedict Arnold's Army: The 1775 American Invasion of Canada During the Revolutionary War
Author: by Arthur S. Lefkowitz
Published at: Savas Beatie; Reprint edition (January 4, 2019)
A brilliant American combat officer and this country’s most famous traitor, Benedict Arnold is one of the most fascinating and complicated people to emerge from American history. His contemporaries called Arnold the American Hannibal after he successfully led more than 1,000 men through the savage Maine wilderness in 1775.
The objective of Arnold and his heroic corps was the fortress city of Quebec, the capital of British-held Canada. The epic campaign is the subject of Benedict Arnold’s Army, a fascinating campaign to bring Canada into the war as the 14th colony.
The initiative for the assault came from George Washington who learned that a fast moving detachment could surprise Quebec by following a chain of rivers and lakes through the Maine wilderness. Washington picked Col. Benedict Arnold, an obscure and controversial Connecticut officer, to command the corps who signed up for the secret mission.
Arnold believed that his expedition would reach Quebec City in twenty days. The route turned out to be 270 miles of treacherous rapids, raging waterfalls, and trackless forests that took months to traverse. At times Arnold’s men were up to their waists in freezing water dragging and pushing their clumsy boats through surging rapids and hauling them up and over waterfalls.
12. Hard Road: Bernie Guindon and the Reign of the Satan's Choice Motorcycle Club
Author: by Peter Edwards
Published at: Vintage Canada; Reprint edition (February 6, 2018)
The founding father of Canadian bikers shares the story of his fascinating life. You could call Bernie Guindon the Sonny Barger of Canadian bikers (but not to his face). The founder of Satan’s Choice, Guindon led what was in the 1960s the second-largest biker club in the world (after the Hells Angels, which Bernie would join briefly in the early 2000s) to national prominence and international infamy.
His life wasn’t all bikes and crime. He was also a medalist in boxing for Canada at the Pan Am Games. That tension between the very rough life he was born into and the possibility for success in the straight world (and how aspirations in each fed his success in the other) layer Guindon’s story, one of the great untold stories in biker history.
Friends from the biker world and Guindon’s family have given extensive interviews for Hard Road, including his son, Harley, whose own depictions of prison time are some of the most searing you’ll ever read.
13. Canada's First Nations: A History of Founding Peoples from Earliest Times (Civilization of the American Indian)
Author: by Olive Patricia Dickason
Published at: Univ of Oklahoma Pr (August 1, 1992)
The sweep of Canadian history is both broader and deeper than standard texts reveal. When Europeans first came to Canada, they did not find a wilderness; rather, they encountered a complex, rich society composed of fifty-five individual nations-the Native peoples of Canada.
But because these societies were predominantly oral rather than literate, Canadian historians generally have found it easier to ignore the early existence of Native peoples. Doing so, of course, clips short Canada’s history, and it clouds our view of these remarkable original cultures and their influence on the country’s character.
Canada’s First Nations, by contrast, begins with the first appearance of humans in the Americas and, using an interdisciplinary approach, restores the full history. Although Canada’s Native peoples preceded European arrival, their lives were radically altered thereafter. At first, Amerindians and Inuit cooperated with and even aided the Europeans, but the newcomers’ encroachment knew no bounds.
14. Canada's First Nations: A History of Founding Peoples from Earliest Times
Author: by Olive Dickason
Published at: Oxford University Press; 4th edition (May 1, 2009)
Canada’s First Nations uses an interdisciplinary approach-drawing on research in archaeology, anthropology, biology, sociology, political science, and history-to give an account of Canada’s past. Olive Dickason’s widely acclaimed history of Canada’s founding peoples is augmented by David McNab’s updates and in-depth examination of recent events, including the Ipperwash inquiry and global warming’s effect on Innu of Canada’s the north.
This text describes how Canada’s Aboriginal peoples were radically altered by the arrival of Europeans. They fought as allies beside the French and English during the battles of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; they were hunted to the point of extermination in Newfoundland; and their numbers were decimated by European diseases.
In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries Canada tried to legislate Aboriginal cultures out of existence, as the official assumption remained that assimilation would bring an end to any Indian “Problem.” From Nescambiouit and Potiac, to Pound Maker, Abe Okpik, and Elijah Harper, Amerindians and Inuit have responded to persistent colonial pressure in various ways, including attempts at co-operation, episodes of resistances, and politically sophisticated efforts to preserve their territory and culture.
15. Contested Land, Contested Memory: Israel's Jews and Arabs and the Ghosts of Catastrophe
Author: by Jo Roberts
Published at: Dundurn (September 10, 2013)
2014 Dayton Literary Peace Prize Nonfiction Runner Up The complex histories and memories of Jewish and Palestinian Israelis today frame Israel’s future possibilities for peace. 1948: As Jewish refugees, survivors of the Holocaust, struggle toward the new State of Israel, Arab refugees are fleeing, many under duress.
Sixty years later, the memory of trauma has shaped both peoples’ collective understanding of who they are. After a war, the victors write history. How was the story of the exiled Palestinians erased from textbooks, maps, even the land? How do Jewish and Palestinian Israelis now engage with the histories of the Palestinian Nakba (“Catastrophe”) and the Holocaust, and how do these echo through the political and physical landscapes of their country?
Vividly narrated, with extensive original interview material, Contested Land, Contested Memory examines how these tangled histories of suffering inform Jewish and Palestinian-Israeli lives today, and frame Israel’s possibilities for peace.
