Wealthy and widowed, Lizzie Eustace comes into possession of a very valuable heirloom necklace, the Eustace Diamonds. But Lizzie also possesses a penchant for lying. When the strongbox in which the diamonds are usually kept is stolen, Lizzie becomes the subject of much gossip and scandal. Eventually, a mystery is unravelled and the police discover much more than they initially expected. The truth is not always what it appears to be. First published in 1872, The Eustace Diamonds is the third in Trollope's "Palliser" series.
The Federalist Papers are a series of 85 articles arguing for the ratification of the United States Constitution. They were published in New York City newspapers beginning in October 1787 and outline the philosophy and motivation of the proposed system of government. According to historian Richard Morris, they are an "incomparable exposition of the Constitution, a classic in political science unsurpassed in both breadth and depth by the product of any later American writer."
The Golden Ass relates the ludicrous adventures of Lucius, a virile young man obsessed with magic. In his enthusiasm to see the use of magic he is accidentally transformed into an ass and thus forced to witness and experience the lives of slaves and the destitute. This is the only surviving work of Greco-Roman literature to give a first person perspective of the abhorrent condition of the lower classes. T. E. Lawrence carried a small copy of the book in his saddlebags throughout the Arab Revolt.
The Histories is considered the first work of history in Western literature. Written about 440 BCE it tells the story of the war between the Persian Empire and the Greek city-states in the 5th century BCE. The histories includes the Battle of Thermopylae where 1400 Greeks under King Leonidas of Sparta sacrificed themselves to delay a Persian army of at least hundreds of thousands, an act that sealed the eventual fate of the Persians.
