Part 2: Feeding the Front
On April 22nd, the troops holding the Front were confronted with the first use of poison gas as a weapon of war. By the middle of 1915 over half of the 25,000 troops had been killed or badly wounded. Lord Kitchener's recruiting drive 'Your country needs you' prompted millions of young men to enlist. Veteran Robbie Burns, now 104, and Dick Trafford, now 102 recall the moment that they joined up. Dick also recalls the Battle of Loos where the British lost 8,000 men in an hour and Holmes relates the story of Rudyard Kipling's only son John who was among the reserves at Loos.

Masada, siege of (ad 73), one of the final acts of the Jewish revolt against Rome which began in ad 66. Masada, a high outcrop of rock by the Dead Sea, had been fortified in the mid-2nd century bc and again by Herod the Great in the 30s bc. It was seized early in the revolt by the Sicarii sect of alleged assassins led by Eleazar ben Yair. In ad 73, with Jerusalem captured and the rest of the province subdued, the Roman governor, Flavius Silva, laid siege with Legion X Fretensis. The account by the turncoat Jewish leader and historian Josephus claims to have been derived from the two women survivors, but is regarded as heavily embroidered (though confirmed in outline by archaeological excavation in the 1950s and 1960s). Over several months Silva constructed a siege wall, with towers and eight camps, right round the plateau, and then an assault ramp up which he rolled a massive siege tower equipped with a battering ram and artillery. The final assault, on the day after the defences had been breached and fired, revealed that the 960 defenders had taken their own lives.

Arab Human Development Report 2005: Towards the Rise of Women in the Arab World

Arab Human Development Report 2005: Towards the Rise of Women in the Arab World
Stanford Economics and Finance | ISBN: 0804755302 | 2006-05-08 | PDF | 260 pages | 3.25 Mb

In the first Arab Human Development Report (AHDR), gender inequality was identified as one of the main obstacles to development in the Arab Region, along with the deficits of knowledge and freedom that were addressed in the consequent AHDRs. Written by an independent group of Arab scholars, policy makers, and practitioners, the current volume focuses on the history and contemporary dynamics of Arab women's economic, political, and social empowerment in the region. It details the processes in which gender impacts Arab development while suggesting means of overcoming some of the challenges and building more equitable societies.
This is the fourth installment in the series that was created to provide the Arab region with a needed neutral forum for initiating dialogues and structuring debates to build a reform agenda from within. These reports build on the wealth of Arab knowledge and insight, and present a vision of self-determined change based on a commitment to internal social reform and frank self-assessment. Forging an Arab renaissance is one of the key objectives of the Arab Human Development Series, and to chart the signposts along these routes, the series is a beacon. The reports in this series have proven to be an invaluable resource to scholars and policy makers around the world, and have been well received by the general public and specialized groups.

Arguably the world's most famous work of art, millions of people visit it every year. Until now however nobody has been able to explain exactly what the Sistine Chapel's ceiling is actually trying to tell us. Though important and timely the film (airing as it does to celebrate the 500th birthday of the work) it is also the product of the detective work and obsessive scholarship by art critic Waldemar Januszczak which spans the last 30 years.
