Item Description: Penguin. 1 Paperback(s), 2008. soft. Book Condition: New. Herman Perry, traumatized by the hardships of the Indo-Burmese jungle in World War II and also by the blatant racism of his white commanding officers, found solace in opium and marijuana. On one fateful day, in the throes of an emotional collapse, Perry shot his unarmed white lieutenant and fled into the jungle, triggering an unprecedented manhunt. Wired magazine contributing editor Brendan Koerner spent nearly five years chasing Perry's ghost to the most remote corners of India and Burma, and here gives us "a fascinating, untold story of the Second World War, an incendiary social document, and a thrilling, campfire tale adventure" (George Pelacanos). This is also the story of the Ledo Road's forgotten GIs, for whom Jim Crow was as powerful an enemy as the Japanese—and for whom Herman Perry, dubbed the jungle king, became an unlikely folk hero."Segregation is the context for Koerner's biography of Herman Perry, and the Burma theater of World War II is the stage. Shipped to Asia with thousands of black American draftees to build the Ledo Road, Perry generated considerable documentation in his short life, and Koerner fully capitalizes on it. Producing a riveting personal drama, Koerner glimpses Perry's essentially ebullient personality forming in the Jim Crow world but rebelling against its army version on the other side of the world. Not glossing over Perry's transgressions of military discipline, one of which was a capital offense at the tragic heart of the narrative, Koerner solidly anchors them in their emotionally stressful context of miserable road construction in a pestilent jungle amid contemptuous treatment from some white officers. There were two extraordinary consequences of Perry's central misdeed: his court-martial, whose procedures Koerner critiques, and beforehand, Perry's escape and yearlong survival in the Burmese wilds as an adoptive member of the Naga people. With arresting pacing and empathy for its participants, Koerner's skillful rendering of the Perry saga exerts certain appeal."—Booklist 386. Bookseller Inventory # 36293

Item Description: Barbara Hawkins, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 140 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. It s 1942 and Harry Flynn leaves behind the love of his life to journey into a world of tigers, elephants and Himalayan Mountains. Here he must take risks if he is to survive. He enlists to fight in the war expecting to find the thrill of danger and honor of military service. Instead of a fighting position, Harry is sent to the Forgotten Front in the Indian subcontinent as an ordinary supply officer. There, General Joseph Vinegar Joe Stilwell is constructing a road to nowhere through Japanese-occupied Burma. The general will do anything to get the road built In this exotic world with Naga headhunters, opium-smoking Kachin tribesmen, and marauders who scorn both life and death, Harry forges unlikely friendships. He is forced to obey orders that challenge his principles and is torn between being true to himself of no man at all. Eventually, not willing to let Uncle Sam needlessly condemn the road crew to death, he rebels. He tries to sabotage the road s progress where an all-black construction regiment is losing a man a mile due to disease and crumbling mountain slopes. Then a commanding officer spots his unconventional skills. Immediately he s transferred to America s first guerrilla-supported unit: Merrill s Marauders and later the Mars Task Force. Here, he must entrust his life to others. During a time when boys were forced to come of age on the battlefield, Harry must find what makes his life worth living or die. The lessons learned in World War II apply to all wars, where men walk away carrying unspeakable memories and lives that could have been haunt those that lived. Behind the Forgotten Front brings them all back to life and shows that history is about facts driven by passions and sometimes the mistakes of real people. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780991598410

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 203 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Mu, as a lost Pacific Ocean continent, was later popularized by James Churchward (1851-1936) in a series of books, beginning with Lost Continent of Mu, the Motherland of Man (1926), re-edited later as The Lost Continent Mu (1931). Other popular books in the series are The Children of Mu (1931), and The Sacred Symbols of Mu (1933). Churchward claimed that more than fifty years ago, while he was a soldier in India, he befriended a high-ranking temple priest who showed him a set of ancient sunburnt clay tablets, supposedly in a long lost Naga-Maya language which only two other people in India could read. Having mastered the language himself, Churchward found out that they originated from the place where [man] first appeared-Mu. The 1931 edition states that all matter of science in this work are based on translations of two sets of ancient tablets: the clay tables he read in India, and a collection 2,500 stone tablets that had been uncovered by William Niven in Mexico. p. 7 Churchward gave a vivid description of Mu as the home of an advanced civilization, the Naacal, which flourished between 50,000 and 12,000 years ago, was dominated by a white race, p. 48 and was superior in many respects to our own p. 17 At the time of its demise, about 12,000 years ago, Mu had 64,000,000 inhabitants and many large cities, and colonies in the other continents. Churchward claimed that the landmass of Mu was located in the Pacific Ocean, and stretched east-west from the Marianas to Easter Island, and north-south from Hawaii to Mangaia. He claimed that according to the creation myth he read in the Indian tablets, Mu had been lifted above sea level by the expansion of underground volcanic gases. Eventually Mu was completely obliterated in almost a single night p. 44: after a series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the broken land fell into that great abyss of fire and was covered by fifty millions of square miles of water. p. 50 Churchward claimed that Mu was the common origin of the great civilizations of Egypt, Greece, Central America, India, Burma and others, including Easter Island, and was in particular the source of ancient megalithic architecture. As evidence for his claims, he pointed to symbols from throughout the world, in which he saw common themes of birds, the relation of the Earth and the sky, and especially the Sun. Churchward claims the king of Mu was Ra and he relates this to the Egyptian god of the sun, Ra, and the Rapanui word for Sun, ra a, which he incorrectly spells raa. [8]: p. 48 He claimed to have found symbols of the Sun in Egypt, Babylonia, Peru and all ancient lands and countries - it was a universal symbol. [8]: p. 138 Churchward attributed all megalithic art in Polynesia to the people of Mu. He claimed that symbols of the sun are found depicted on stones of Polynesian ruins, such as the stone hats (pukao) on top of the giant moai statues of Easter Island. Citing W.J. Johnson, Churchward describes the cylindrical hats as spheres that seem to show red in the distance, and asserts that they represent the Sun as Ra. p. 138 He also incorrectly claimed that some of them are made of red sandstone [8]: p. 89 which does not occur in the island. The platforms on which the statues rest (ahu) are described by Churchward as being platform-like accumulations of cut and dressed stone, which were supposedly left in their current positions awaiting shipment to some other part of the continent for the building of temples and palaces. p. 89 He also cites the pillars erected by the Maori of New Zealand as an example of this lost civilization s handiwork.: p. 158 In Churchward s view, the present-day Polynesians are not descendants of the dominant members of the lost civilization of Mu, responsible for these great works, but survivors of the cataclysm that adopted the first cannibalism and savagery in the world.

Item Description: Mittal Publications, New Delhi, 2005. N.A. Book Condition: New. 23 cms. xxii, 254 p.,The dynamics of the politics of identity, ethnicity and self-determination seems to be at climax today be lying many ideologies who once thought that ethnic dynamism was a non-issue for the 20th and 21st Centuries. This is for the fact that many peoples and/or nations are still ?unrepresented? in the comity of the world-the United Nations Organisation (UNO) as equal partners. Through the UNO, the world for the first time has become a family of nations. Many nations have become independent from their so-called colonial maters. India is one of the States that is celebrating its fifty years of independence. However, there is yet another ugly face of the emergence of several independent States (viz., in multi-national States) that has not been well addressed. This is the case of the ?unrepresented nations/peoples? that have been arbitrarily annexed into the stronger and bigger newly formed independent States so that they remain as ?marginalised? nations in the then existing States system. nagas are said to be one of the peoples and/or nations who were arbitrarily annexed by India and Myanmar (erstwhile Burma). Today, the Nagas are living in two sovereign States as unhappy people. This book, The Nagas; Right to Self determination:. is a historical and holistic account of the Nagas struggle for their right to self-determination to be independent from India and Myanmar with special reference to India. This work thus mainly covers the Nagas? old way of life, the emergence of the Naga movement and the later developments till 1999 and the perceptions of the Nagas on self-determination. The author dates back into the remote Naga past traditions and articulates them to the development of the Modern Naga national movement. This ork is the outcome of a combination of an inter-disciplinary academic research and personal experiences as the author is a Naga himself and an active social worker. This book is perhaps the only exhaustive and holistic work on the Naga movement that has been furnished so far by any researcher and/or writer. This work, it is hoped, will be most helpful to scholars, policy makers, the Nagas themselves and persons interested in the Naga movement. The book will also be of equal importance to those involved in the area of conflict resolution/management/ethnic dynamism and so on. Bookseller Inventory # 041402

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 203 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Mu, as a lost Pacific Ocean continent, was later popularized by James Churchward (1851-1936) in a series of books, beginning with Lost Continent of Mu, the Motherland of Man (1926), re-edited later as The Lost Continent Mu (1931). Other popular books in the series are The Children of Mu (1931), and The Sacred Symbols of Mu (1933). Churchward claimed that more than fifty years ago, while he was a soldier in India, he befriended a high-ranking temple priest who showed him a set of ancient sunburnt clay tablets, supposedly in a long lost Naga-Maya language which only two other people in India could read. Having mastered the language himself, Churchward found out that they originated from the place where [man] first appeared-Mu. The 1931 edition states that all matter of science in this work are based on translations of two sets of ancient tablets: the clay tables he read in India, and a collection 2,500 stone tablets that had been uncovered by William Niven in Mexico. p. 7 Churchward gave a vivid description of Mu as the home of an advanced civilization, the Naacal, which flourished between 50,000 and 12,000 years ago, was dominated by a white race, p. 48 and was superior in many respects to our own p. 17 At the time of its demise, about 12,000 years ago, Mu had 64,000,000 inhabitants and many large cities, and colonies in the other continents. Churchward claimed that the landmass of Mu was located in the Pacific Ocean, and stretched east-west from the Marianas to Easter Island, and north-south from Hawaii to Mangaia. He claimed that according to the creation myth he read in the Indian tablets, Mu had been lifted above sea level by the expansion of underground volcanic gases. Eventually Mu was completely obliterated in almost a single night p. 44: after a series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the broken land fell into that great abyss of fire and was covered by fifty millions of square miles of water. p. 50 Churchward claimed that Mu was the common origin of the great civilizations of Egypt, Greece, Central America, India, Burma and others, including Easter Island, and was in particular the source of ancient megalithic architecture. As evidence for his claims, he pointed to symbols from throughout the world, in which he saw common themes of birds, the relation of the Earth and the sky, and especially the Sun. Churchward claims the king of Mu was Ra and he relates this to the Egyptian god of the sun, Ra, and the Rapanui word for Sun, ra a, which he incorrectly spells raa. [8]: p. 48 He claimed to have found symbols of the Sun in Egypt, Babylonia, Peru and all ancient lands and countries - it was a universal symbol. [8]: p. 138 Churchward attributed all megalithic art in Polynesia to the people of Mu. He claimed that symbols of the sun are found depicted on stones of Polynesian ruins, such as the stone hats (pukao) on top of the giant moai statues of Easter Island. Citing W.J. Johnson, Churchward describes the cylindrical hats as spheres that seem to show red in the distance, and asserts that they represent the Sun as Ra. p. 138 He also incorrectly claimed that some of them are made of red sandstone [8]: p. 89 which does not occur in the island. The platforms on which the statues rest (ahu) are described by Churchward as being platform-like accumulations of cut and dressed stone, which were supposedly left in their current positions awaiting shipment to some other part of the continent for the building of temples and palaces. p. 89 He also cites the pillars erected by the Maori of New Zealand as an example of this lost civilization s handiwork.: p. 158 In Churchward s view, the present-day Polynesians are not descendants of the dominant members of the lost civilization of Mu, responsible for these great works, but survivors of the cataclysm that adopted the first cannibalism and savagery in the world.

The Bhuiyas, an Orissa hill tribe, consider it essential that the parties should have attained manhood and womanhood, and that there should be no coercion used by parents or others, though parents and friends sometimes give advice. 1 So also the Saorias of the Rajmahal Hills require that the parties shall be of an age to please themselves, hence there are no infant-marriages among them.2 Among the Nagas many marriages are arranged by the young people themselves on the basis of affection ;8 and among the Angami Nagas the choice lies mainly with the woman. Of the Mikirs, a Tibeto-Burman people in the Province of Assam, we are told that when the bridegroom s party come to the bride s house, her father asks his wife to inquire of the girl if she will take the lad; if the girl is reported to consent, the beer and spirits brought by the bridegroom s party are drunk by the two fathers, whereas without her consent they cannot be accepted.5 Concerning the Chittagong Hill tribes, Captain Lewin says that the women s power of selecting their own husband is to the full as free as that enjoyed by our own English maidens. 8 MacMahon states that among the Indo-Burmese border tribes in the good old times chivalry demanded that the wishes of the weaker sex should be taken into account.7 Among the Shans mutual consent is required to constitute a valid union;8 and of the Lisu tribes of the Burma-China frontier we are told that their young people evidently have a personal vote in the management of their love affairs. 1 In Tavay, says Low, the Karean lover pays his.

Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.It s 1942 and Harry Flynn leaves behind the love of his life to journey into a world of tigers, elephants and Himalayan Mountains. Here he must take risks if he is to survive. He enlists to fight in the war expecting to find the thrill of danger and honor of military service. Instead of a fighting position, Harry is sent to the Forgotten Front in the Indian subcontinent as an ordinary supply officer. There, General Joseph Vinegar Joe Stilwell is constructing a road to nowhere through Japanese-occupied Burma. The general will do anything to get the road built In this exotic world with Naga headhunters, opium-smoking Kachin tribesmen, and marauders who scorn both life and death, Harry forges unlikely friendships. He is forced to obey orders that challenge his principles and is torn between being true to himself of no man at all. Eventually, not willing to let Uncle Sam needlessly condemn the road crew to death, he rebels. He tries to sabotage the road s progress where an all-black construction regiment is losing a man a mile due to disease and crumbling mountain slopes. Then a commanding officer spots his unconventional skills. Immediately he s transferred to America s first guerrilla-supported unit: Merrill s Marauders and later the Mars Task Force. Here, he must entrust his life to others. During a time when boys were forced to come of age on the battlefield, Harry must find what makes his life worth living or die. The lessons learned in World War II apply to all wars, where men walk away carrying unspeakable memories and lives that could have been haunt those that lived. Behind the Forgotten Front brings them all back to life and shows that history is about facts driven by passions and sometimes the mistakes of real people. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780991598410

Item Description: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 196 pages. Dimensions: 9.9in. x 7.8in. x 0.3in.Mu, as a lost Pacific Ocean continent, was later popularized by James Churchward (18511936) in a series of books, beginning with Lost Continent of Mu, the Motherland of Man (1926), re-edited later as The Lost Continent Mu (1931). Other popular books in the series are The Children of Mu (1931), and The Sacred Symbols of Mu (1933). Churchward claimed that more than fifty years ago, while he was a soldier in India, he befriended a high-ranking temple priest who showed him a set of ancient sunburnt clay tablets, supposedly in a long lost Naga-Maya language which only two other people in India could read. Having mastered the language himself, Churchward found out that they originated from the place where man first appearedMu. The 1931 edition states that all matter of science in this work are based on translations of two sets of ancient tablets: the clay tables he read in India, and a collection 2, 500 stone tablets that had been uncovered by William Niven in Mexico. p. 7 Churchward gave a vivid description of Mu as the home of an advanced civilization, the Naacal, which flourished between 50, 000 and 12, 000 years ago, was dominated by a white race, p. 48 and was superior in many respects to our own p. 17 At the time of its demise, about 12, 000 years ago, Mu had 64, 000, 000 inhabitants and many large cities, and colonies in the other continents. Churchward claimed that the landmass of Mu was located in the Pacific Ocean, and stretched east-west from the Marianas to Easter Island, and north-south from Hawaii to Mangaia. He claimed that according to the creation myth he read in the Indian tablets, Mu had been lifted above sea level by the expansion of underground volcanic gases. Eventually Mu was completely obliterated in almost a single night p. 44: after a series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the broken land fell into that great abyss of fire and was covered by fifty millions of square miles of water. p. 50 Churchward claimed that Mu was the common origin of the great civilizations of Egypt, Greece, Central America, India, Burma and others, including Easter Island, and was in particular the source of ancient megalithic architecture. As evidence for his claims, he pointed to symbols from throughout the world, in which he saw common themes of birds, the relation of the Earth and the sky, and especially the Sun. Churchward claims the king of Mu was Ra and he relates this to the Egyptian god of the sun, Ra, and the Rapanui word for Sun, raa, which he incorrectly spells raa. 8: p. 48 He claimed to have found symbols of the Sun in Egypt, Babylonia, Peru and all ancient lands and countries it was a universal symbol. 8: p. 138 Churchward attributed all megalithic art in Polynesia to the people of Mu. He claimed that symbols of the sun are found depicted on stones of Polynesian ruins, such as the stone hats (pukao) on top of the giant moai statues of Easter Island. Citing W. J. Johnson, Churchward describes the cylindrical hats as spheres that seem to show red in the distance, and asserts that they represent the Sun as Ra. p. 138 He also incorrectly claimed that some of them are made of red sandstone 8: p. 89 which does not occur in the island. The platforms on which the statues rest (ahu) are described by Churchward as being platform-like accumulations of cut and dressed stone, which were supposedly left in their current positions awaiting shipment to some other part of the continent for the building of temples and palaces. : p. 89 He also cites the pillars erected by the Maori of New Zealand as an example of this lost civilizations handiwork. : p. 158 In Churchwards view, the present-day Polynesians are not descendants of the dominant members of the lost civilization of Mu, responsible for these great works, but survivors of the cataclysm that adopted the first c This item ships from multiple locations.
