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.

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.

In late 1930s Britain, a young woman yearns for the exciting adventures that seem to be reserved exclusively for men. "Come visit me in India," her friend Alexa writes, and Ursula Graham Bower does, unaware that Assam is where her dreams will come true.Flouting convention, she goes to live in the jungle-clad hills with reformed headhunters, the Zemi Nagas, where she finds fulfillment and a sense of purpose by recording their culture and providing much needed medical care. Her attempts to reconcile the distrustful Zemi with the British authorities are unsuccessful, until the 1942 Japanese invasion of Burma becomes the catalyst to heal the breach.The British Army recruits her into "V" Force as a guerilla. Leading a band of Naga scouts and a platoon of soldiers, she watches the border areas. The Japanese invade India and, with British lines twenty miles behind her, the danger increases. Fearing the authorities will make her leave if they contact her, and that the Nagas will fold if she goes, Ursula signals H.Q.: "Going forward to find the enemy. Send more rifles." The Nagas remain loyal in the most dangerous circumstances, even being prepared to die with her. They put their trust in Ursula and the authorities and the authorities trust them, and they do not fail each other.

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.

Miles Bronson, one of the pioneer American Baptist missionaries worked in Assam, arrived at Sadiya in Assam on 8 July 1838. In the previous year, Nathan Brown and O.T. Cutter landed at Sadia with their families with an object to go to Northern Burma and South China through Sadiya. Initially as part of their mission, they worked among the local peoples by establishing schools both for boys and girls, writing books in their languages and preaching Christianity in and around Sadia. After staying more than about a year, Bronson left Sadia and moved to Jaipur in May, 1838. Jaipur, a place on the bank of the Burhidihing River, was an important strategic point for the Company Government because of its link road with Burma. Jaipur had connections with adjoining hills including that of Namsang. After the British occupation, the place also became important for large scale tea plantation. At Jaipur, Bronson opened a school with help of Captain S.F. Hannay. During his stay at Jaipur, Bronson spent his time in the study of languages of surroundings tribes including that of ¿Namsang Nagas¿. The ¿Namsang Nagas¿ are called today as Noctes and Wanchos. The Noctes are concentrated in Namsang, Khonsa and Liju areas in Tirap district of present Arunachal Pradesh in India. The Noctes had close contact with Jaipur and frequently visited the area for salt trade. Most of the people of this tribe could speak Assamese. Therefore, Bronson chose to work among the Noctes with a vision to go to Burma.

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.
