【历史】
《长崎:核劫余生》Nagasaki: Life after Nuclear War

作者:Bernard Cornwell

A great and terrible story of a battle that was fought 200 years ago, told with energy and clarity by a writer who has a deep understanding of men in combat and why they do what they do. "Waterloo" proves that Bernard Cornwell's non-fiction is as fine as his novels, if not finer.

In eastern territories, which suffered "double occupation", first by the Soviets and then by the Nazis, at least 90% of them perished.

《元老院与市民:古罗马史》SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome
作者:Mary Beard

A masterly new chronicle, by Britain's most engaging historian of the ancient world, about Rome from its myth-shrouded origins to the early third century. She shows that the key to its dominance was granting citizenship to so many people.
