    Москва, на английском языке Читать онлайн by: Читать онлайн

    Издание на английском языке. Иллюстрированный альбом с видами Москвы. Москва... Само звучание этого слова исполнено величавой, былинной силы. Оно словно излучает энергетический импульс, подобный блеску золотых куполов храмов и окладов чудотворных икон. Звездный свет, осеняющий Москву, не угасал во все времена, и ныне, в начале XXI века, над Москвой "великой, златоглавой" вновь звучат колокола древних храмов. Это торжественный "глагол времен", вобравший в себя колоссальную энергию прошлого и предвещающий неотвратимый будущий взлет. В этом голосе Москвы, как и во всем ее образе, сокрыты коренная сила России, ее уверенность в одолении избранного трудного пути, ее смелая устремленность в грядущее.

    Derek Wilson: Brief History of Henry VIII, Reformer and Tyreant Читать онлайн by: Wilson Derek Читать онлайн

    Henry VIII changed the course of English life more completely than any monarch since the Conquest. In the portraits of Holbein, Henry Tudor stands proud as one of the most powerful figures in renaissance Europe. But is the portrait just a bluff? In his new book Derek Wilson explores the myths behind the image of the Tudor Lion. He was the monarch that delivered the Reformation to England yet Luther called him 'A fool, a liar and a damnable rotten worm'. As a young man he gained a reputation as an intellectual and fair prince yet he ruled the nation like a tyrant. He treated his subjects as cruelly as he treated his wives. Based on a wealth of new material and a life time's knowledge of the subject Derek Wilson exposes a new portrait of a much misunderstood King. PRAISE FOR DEREK WILSON'S PREVIOUS WORKS: The Uncrowned Kings of England: 'Stimulating and authorative.' John Guy 'Masterly. [Wilson] has a deep understanding of...characters, reaching out accross the centuries.' Sunday Times Hans Holbein: Portrait of an Unknown Man: 'Fascinating.' Sarah Bradford, Daily Telegraph' Highly readable...The most accurate and vivid portrayal to date.' Alison Weir
