Spiral of History, Book 5: The New Imperial Age by Alex Jack
Book 5 The New Imperial Age explores humanity’s struggle for health, peace, and freedom in the 19th century. With the rise of industrialization, the consumption of meat and sugar soared in Europe and the United States. Slavery spread in the Americas, Britain went to war with China to protect its lucrative opium trade, King Leopold of Belgium initiated genocide in Central Africa, and the Lakota, the last free people on the Great Plains, were uprooted from their ancestral homelands. From this cauldron emerged the Abolition movement, women’s rights, indigenous spirituality, plant-based diets and lifestyles, and modern art.
