Malcolm

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=96412520&cjsku=96412520...
Highly regarded in India to this day, Sir John Malcolm is remarkably little known in his native Scotland. This book describes his extraordinary journey from humble origins to become a leading player in the transformation of the East India Company from a largely commercial enterprise into an agent of imperial government, during a crucial period of British and Indian political history. Born in 1769, Malcolm was one of seventeen children of a tenant farmer in the Scottish Borders. Leaving school, family and country at the age of thirteen, he achieved distinction in India over the next half-century. A quintessential all-rounder, he excelled in many fields: as a professional soldier he campaigned with Wellington in south India and rose to Major-General; as an administrator, he pacified Central India and later became Governor of Bombay. He led three Company missions to Persia in the early stages of the Great Game of diplomatic rivalry between Britain and Russia. He was fluent in several languages, and wrote nine influential books, including The History of Persia. Based on extensive research in Britain and India, this biography brings to life the story of a talented and ambitious man living in a dramatic era of imperial history.

Malcolm X

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=209531778&fc=US&cjsku=209531778...
This revealing look at the slain civil rights leader offers “invaluable information about his activities and progress as an activist and thinker” (The New York Times). From March, 1953 forward, shortly after he was released from a Boston prison, the FBI watched every move Malcolm Little—aka Malcolm X—made. They read his private letters, monitored his phone calls, taped his interviews, and shadowed him wherever he went—except to the Audubon Ballroom on the day of his death. Their files on him totaled more than 3,600 pages, covering every facet of his life. Now, viewing the file as a source of information about the ideological development and political significance of Malcolm X, historian Clayborne Carson examines Malcolm's relationship to other African-American leaders and institutions in order to define more clearly Malcolm's place in modern African-American history. With its sobering, close scrutiny of the FBI and the national policing strategies of the 1950s and 1960s and its look at such issues as the relationship between J. Edgar Hoover and black civil rights leaders, Malcolm X: The FBI Files is one-of-a-kind: never before has there been so much material on the assassination of Malcolm X assembled in one place.

Malcolm Fraser

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1562969&cjsku=1562969...
'The great task of statesmanship is to apply past lessons to new situations, to draw correct analogies to understand and act upon present forces, to recognise the need for change.' Malcolm Fraser Malcolm Fraser is one of the most interesting and possibly most misunderstood of Australia's Prime Ministers. In this part memoir and part authorised biography, Fraser at the age of 79 years talks about his time in public life. From the Vietnam War to the Dismissal and his years as Prime Minister, through to his concern in recent times for breaches in the Rule of Law and harsh treatment of refugees, Fraser emerges as an enduring liberal, constantly reinterpreting core values to meet the needs of changing times. Written in collaboration with journalist Margaret Simons, Malcolm Fraser's political memoirs trace the story of a shy boy who was raised to be seen and not heard, yet grew to become one of the most persistent, insistent and controversial political voices of our times. The book offers insight into Malcolm Fraser's substantial achievements. He was the first Australian politician to describe Australia's future as multicultural, and his federal government was the first to pass Aboriginal Land Rights and Freedom of Information legislation, also establishing the Human Rights Commission. After his parliamentary career, Fraser continued to be an important player in public life, playing a key role in persuading the USA Congress to impose sanctions on South Africa as part of the battle against apartheid. He was also the founding chair of CARE Australia, one of our largest aid agencies.
