2.0 out of 5 stars MI6 as an Institution, 2 May 2014

I really wanted a history of what made MI6 renown (action, innovative approach to challenges, spectacular plots, etc.. Instead, hundreds of pages of the history of the bureaucracy connected to the Service

5.0 out of 5 stars Telling the History of the Habsburg Emoire - An European Union "Avant La Letre", 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From Sapin to Transylvania and Bosnia, the Habsburg Empire managed to unite and bring civilization and modernity to a vast area of the Europe, creating a "de facto" European Union, a melting pot of nationalities, habits, human relations, etc.
An absolutist Empire that was not so absolutist, enabling ways of promoting valour and personalities wherever they came from, regardless of nationality and geographical origins.
THe book is a must to be read by politicians and today's artisans of teh European Union that should learn what was good and what wnet wrong in several centuries of building up a modern EUrope.
The book is quite good - probably the best I have read yet on the matter, though the subject could span on more than one volume


Prince Eugene of Savoy (Cambridge Library Collection - European History)
Prince Eugene of Savoy (Cambridge Library Collection - European History)
by George Bruce Malleson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £20.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An European Soldier, 8 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From France to Turkey, the name of Eugene of Savoy is presented in very many places.
His statues can be found in Germany, Hungary, Austria, etc.
Though the book is written sometime ago, the presentation of the Prince, the places and people are described in detail in a very alert and attracting style.
I would very much like to read a more comprehensive and up to date study of this modest and dedicated European Soldier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Messiah!, 24 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Messiah (Audio CD)
I firstmlisten to this version 40 yrs ago.
I still believe it is the best version of the Handel work, though I already have a collection of some 15+ other version
The McKellar "Comfort Ye" is absolutely perfect!
An Dame Joan Sutherland performance is better than Kiri Te Kanawa's
