While we may be familiar with the fabulous imagination of Gustav Klimt and his portraits of femmes fatales or mythical women, we are less aware of the fact that the artist also made a name for himself in fashion. With his mistress Emilie Floge, who managed one of the most prominent couture houses in Vienna, he designed "reform" dresses, thus taking part in the revolutionary movement that was rocking artistic and middle class Vienna at the time. By photographing these designs for a magazine, Gustav Klimt became the first photographer of the history of fashion.

Why was there such a far-reaching consensus concerning the utopian goal of national homogeneity in the first half of the twentieth century? Ethnic cleansing is analyzed here as a result of the formation of democratic nation-states, the international order based on them, and European modernity in general. Almost all mass-scale population removals were rationally and precisely organized and carried out in cold blood, with revenge, hatred and other strong emotions playing only a minor role. This book not only considers the majority of population removals which occurred in Eastern Europe, but is also an encompassing, comparative study including Western Europe, interrogating the motivations of Western statesmen and their involvement in large-scale population removals. It also reaches beyond the European continent and considers the reverberations of colonial rule and ethnic cleansing in the former British colonies.

Pedro the donkey is sad and he needs your help. Can you save him? Maybe the fairy can. Perhaps it is the monkey. Or will it be too late? Find out in this delightful tale about a donkey who finds a new path to follow. Pedro the Donkey is a story which helps people to understand that you can choose to see and focus on all of the good, happy, positive, beautiful things in life or you can choose to be sad and focus on the negative things. All of life is a choice and by maintaining a positive aspect we can choose how we experience things. We see this demonstrated by two characters, walking the same path, yet having two completely different experiences, based on their own personal perspective on life.
