MacMillan, Margaret  
The War That Ended Peace: The Road to 1914
Historian MacMillan creates a portrait of the personalities and factors that pushed Europe over the brink into a catastrophic, world-changing conflagration, evoking the decisions made, and the economic, social, political, and human tensions that determined the lead-up to the war. Colonial rivalries; ethnic nationalism; Germany's rise to power; shifting alliances; and the belief in a Social Darwinism, that competition among nations was part of nature's rule, and that the strongest would rightfully emerge victorious: all exerted influence.

Discworld #25: The Truth
When William de Worde hits on the idea of producing his upper-crust newsletter with a newfangled printing press, his Ankh-Morpork Times is a big success. Now certain nefarious factions would like nothing better than to put him out of business. They start the rival Ankh-Morpork Inquirer, full of salacious bits, to do just that. Then Lord Vetinari is accused of a serious crime in a seemingly airtight case. But de Worde knows that facts aren't always the whole story. With a prim assistant, a roving vampiric photographer, and a talking dog who holds the key to the mystery, he sets out to get the truth.

Discworld #26: Thief of Time
On the Discworld, Time is a resource managed by the highly capable Monks of History, who store it and pump it from places where it is wasted, like underwater (how much time do fish really need?), to places where there's never enough of it, like cities. Ironically, the construction of the world's first truly accurate clock threatens to stop Time altogether. And so begins a literal race against Time for the monk Lu Tze and his apprentice. For if the perfect clock starts ticking, Time as we know it will stop - and then the trouble will really begin.

War has come to the Discworld - again. And to no one's great surprise, the conflict centers on the small duchy of Borogravia, which has long prided itself on its aggressiveness. Since her brother Paul marched off to battle, Polly has been running her family's inn - even though the revered national deity has decreed that female ownership of a business is an Abomination (with, among others, oysters, rocks, and the color blue). To keep the inn in the family, Polly must find her brother. So she cuts off her hair, dons masculine garb, and - aided by a well-placed pair of socks - sets out to join this man's army.
