In this unique and fascinating book, Colin Woodard brings to life this virtually unexplored chapter in the Golden Age of Piracy. This is the book that inspired ' Crossbones' the new NBC television series written and produced by Neil ' Luther' Cross and starring John Malkovich. Many of its members had come to piracy as a revolt against conditions in the merchant fleet and in the cities and plantations in the Old and New Worlds. In the early eighteenth century a number of the great pirate captains, including Edward Blackbeard Teach and Black Sam Bellamy, joined forces. Inspired by notions of self-government, they established a crude but distinctive form of democracy in the Bahamas, carving out their own zone of freedom in which indentured servants were released and leaders chosen or deposed by a vote. This infamous Flying Gang was more than simply a thieving band of brothers. They were ultimately overcome by their archnemesis, Captain Woodes Rogers - a merchant fleet owner and former privateer - and the brief though glorious moment of the Republic of Pirates came to an end.

Росту популярности "Flaw" также поспособствовали совместные концерты с " Fear fac ory" и "Eco oli e Crush". Вслед за этим "Flaw" выпустили самостоятельно еще пару дисков: одноименный альбом в 1998 году и EP "Drama" – в 2000-м. К тому времени состав группы был окончательно укомплектован. Новыми членами коллектива стали ударник Крис Баллинджер и второй гитарист Лэнс Арни. С приходом Лэрни звучание команды стало немножко атмосферным и чуть "космическим". Этому способствовал также тот факт, что оба гитариста использовали семиструнные инструменты, а Джерс практиковал пятиструнку. В 2000 году "Flaw" с успехом выступили в легендарном нью-йоркском клубе "CBGB", где их и приметили представители "Republic". Получив контракт от мажоров, музыканты отправились в лос-анжелесскую студию "Sou d Ci y", где и приступили к записи своего первого "настоящего" альбома. Руководил сессиями Дэвид Боттрилл, который продюсировал ранее Питера Гэйбриэла и " ool". " hrough he eyes" получился достаточно эмоциональным, с пульсирующими гитарными риффами и мелодическими структурами.

|Russian and Indian Religious and Ethnic Policy. Analysis of the situation in the Chechen Republic and in the states of Jammu and Kashmir Книга по Требованию Dmitry F. |
Events in the Chechen Republic and in the states of Jammu and Kashmir clearly show that the Russian and the Indian authorities were not ready for a massive invasion of Islam into political life, when it was discovered that the traditional forms of interaction with religion could not provide the state' s interests in the face of political Islam. This monograph should help to shed some light on the problems of sovereignty of the Islamic minorities in Chechnya and Kashmir, and should be especially useful to anyone who is interested in modern ethnic and confessional relations. Two world largest federations – Russia and India – faced similar problems. The principle of national self-determination proclaimed by the American president Woodrow Wilson many years ago is still topical today. The main threat to this principle is the policy built on the tenet "one ethnos - one state", which provokes numerous bloody ethnic conflicts that are often burdened by confessional factor.
