Professor Mack P. Holt,: The French Wars of Religion, 1562-1629

The French Wars of Religion, 1562-1629


This book is a 2005 edition of Mack P. Holt's classic study of the French religious wars of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Drawing on the scholarship of social and cultural historians of the Reformation, it shows how religion infused both politics and the socio-economic tensions of the period to produce a long extended civil war. Professor Holt integrates court politics and the political theory of the elites with the religious experiences of the popular classes, offering a fresh perspective on the wars and on why the French were willing to kill their neighbors in the name of religion. The book has been created specifically for undergraduates and general readers with no background knowledge of either French history or the Reformation. This edition updates the text in the light of new work published in the decade prior to publication and the 'Suggestions for further reading' has been completely re-written.

In exchange for a reduced sentence on his drug smuggling charges, Charles Falco infiltrated three of America's most violent biker gangs: the Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws. In separate investigations that spanned years and coasts, Falco risked his life, suffering a fractured neck and a severely torn shoulder, working deep The French Wars of Religion, 1562-1629 download ebook under cover to bring violent sociopaths to justice. His dedication was profound; he even served time in San Bernardino's Murder Unit and endured solitary confinement. He recorded confessions of gangland-style killings and nearly became a target himself before he sought refuge in the Witness Security Program. His efforts culminated in the seizure of hundreds of illegal firearms, drugs, stolen motorcycles, and sixty two arrests of members for assault, dismemberment, and murder. Executing this country's most successful RICO prosecutions and effectively crippling the criminal enterprise, Falco's engrossing account of the dangers of the biker underworld and justice is perfect for fans of FX's "Sons of Anarchy" as well as Hunter S. Thompson's classic "Hell's Angels".
