The Bluestockings: A History of the First Women's Movement / Susannah Gibson

An illuminating group portrait of the eighteenth-century women who dared to imagine an active life for themselves in both mind and spirit.In England in the 1700s, a woman who was an intellectual, spoke out, or wrote professionally was considered unnatural. After all, as the wisdom of the era dictated, a clever woman -- if there were such a thing -- would never make a good wife. But a circle of women called the Bluestockings did something extraordinary: coming together in glittering salons to discuss and debate as intellectual equals with men, they fought for women to be educated and to have a public role in society.

In this intimate and revelatory history, Susannah Gibson delves into the lives of these pioneering women. Elizabeth Montagu established one of the most famous salons of the Bluestocking movement, with everyone from royalty to revolutionaries clamoring for an invitation to attend.

"A treasure trove of myths and terror ... Atmospheric as hell ... Immersive."-The Times. Based on the podcast with over one hundred million downloads, Fall of Civilizations brilliantly explores how a range of ancient societies rose to power and sophistication, and how they tipped over into collapse..

Across the centuries, we journey from the great empires of Mesopotamia to those of Khmer and Vijayanagara in Asia and Songhai in West Africa; from Byzantium to the Maya, Inca and Aztecs of Central America; from Roman Britain to Rapa Nui. With meticulous research, breathtaking insight and dazzling, empathic storytelling, historian and novelist Paul Cooper evokes the majesty and jeopardy of these ancient civilizations, and asks what it might have felt like for a person alive at the time to witness the end of their world.

The Horse: A Galloping History of Humanity / Timothy C. Winegard

From New York Times bestselling author of The Mosquito, the incredible story of how the horse shaped human history Timothy C. Winegard's The Horse is an epic history unlike any other. Its story begins more than 5,500 years ago on the windswept grasslands of the Eurasian Steppe; when one human tamed one horse, an unbreakable bond was forged and the future of humanity was instantly rewritten, placing the reins of destiny firmly in human hands..

Since that pivotal day, the horse has carried the history of civilizations on its powerful back. For millennia it was the primary mode of transportation, an essential farming machine, a steadfast companion, and a formidable weapon of war. Possessing a unique combination of size, speed, strength, and stamina, the horse dominated every facet of human life and shaped the very scope of human ambition.

The Missing Thread: A Women's History of the Ancient World / Daisy Dunn

A dazzlingly ambitious history of the ancient world that places women at the center - from Cleopatra to Boudica, Sappho to Fulvia, and countless other artists, writers, leaders, and creators of history. Around four thousand years ago, the mysterious Minoans sculpted statues of topless women with snakes slithering on their arms. Over one thousand years later, Sappho wrote great poems of longing and desire.

For classicist Daisy Dunn, these women - whether they were simply sitting at their looms at home or participating in the highest echelons of power - were up to something much more interesting than other histories would lead us to believe. Together, these women helped to make antiquity as we know it.. In this monumental work, Dunn reconceives our understanding of the ancient world by emphasizing women's roles within it.

The Quiet Damage: QAnon and the Destruction of the American Family / Jesselyn Cook

The riveting story of QAnon's devastating impact on the American family, grappling with the seductive allure of disinformation, the trauma it causes, and how we might set ourselves free.. The QAnon conspiracy theories - which posit that a nefarious cabal of elites is secretly ruling our society, poisoning our bodies, and harming our children - have come to represent the peculiar mania driven by social media disinformation campaigns and its dire consequences on our politics. But what's often overlooked is the raw destructive power these theories have on the American family.

In an age in which partisanship has created deep divides within the home - between parents and children, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives - the extreme belief structure of QAnon widens those divides into seemingly insurmountable chasms, leaving people lost, confused, and broken.

But now, when Bourne meets a woman who recognizes him as David Webb, the secrets of those days begin to come out - and Bourne is forced to confront the dangerous ghosts of a past he doesn't even remember.
