The Arabs live not in black tents but in square flat-roofed huts of reeds. They seemed poorer even than the Bakhtiaris, but their cows and heifers were many. We passed large spaces once covered with the crops of villages, but now open grazing-land. It is said that the Afghans destroyed 333 villages in Zarda Kuh, and the land has remained waste ever since. We left the river and turned up a defile called the Tang-i-gazin or pass of tamarisk. The river narrows after passing the mouth of the defile, and flows under high cliffs. It was in this defile that Rustam cut the forked twig of tamarisk which, when shaped into an arrow, put out both the eyes of Afrasiab at once, and gave the victory to the Persian champion. Crossing the heights, we came down on the river again. I was riding in advance with our Khan. We passed a horseman, armed and alone; some others rode nearer the river, half a mile below. The horseman spoke to me in Persian, asking my nationality and business, and then interchanged a few words in Luri or Bakhtiari with the Khan; who, riding up to me as we passed on, said, That man was talking nonsense. What nonsense? I asked. He was saying that had I not been safeguarding you, he would have robbed you.

Item Description: Duke University Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 251 x 175 mm. Brand New Book. This special issue of Radical History Review marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Iranian revolution, an event that reverberated across the globe, causing rifts and realignments in international relations, as well as radical changes in Iranian political, social, and cultural institutions. The Iranian revolution of 1979 was a historical inevitability neither in its inception nor in its outcome; however, its continued domestic and global significance - often misunderstood and misinterpreted - remains indisputable. The issue explores the complex and evolving nature of the post-revolutionary dynamics in Iran and calls for renewed reflection on the roots of the revolution, the processes leading to its proponents victory, and its impact on the Muslim world and the global balance of power. The articles in this interdisciplinary issue take up the legacy of the revolution within and outside the borders of Iran and offer critical evaluation and new insights into the transformations that Iran experienced as a result of the revolution. One essay discusses the role of the crowd in the revolution, while another traces the genealogy of the discourse of anti-Zionism in Iranian circles. Other articles explore the treatment of the revolution in the Egyptian press and illustrate how the trauma of the revolution is portrayed in diasporic Iranian women s biographies. The issue also features a Reflections section, which includes eight short essays that provide snapshots of postrevolutionary politics, economics, literature, cinema, and visual arts, demonstrating both radical changes and continuities in Iranian society. Contributors include Ervand Abrahamian, Mahdi Ahouie, Niki Akhavan, Said Amir Arjomand, Mansour Bonakdarian, Behrooz Ghamari-Tabrizi, M. R. Ghanoonparvar, Hanan Hammad, Taraneh Hemami, Persis M. Karim, Mazyar Lotfalian, Ali Mirsepassi, Minoo Moallem, Nima Naghibi, Nasrin Rahimieh, Ahmad Sadri, and Djavad Salehi-Isfahani. Kamran Talattof Behrooz Ghamari-Tabrizi is Associate Professor of History and Sociology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Mansour Bonakdarian is visiting Assistant Professor of History at the University of Toronto at Mississauga. Nasrin Rahimieh is Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of California, Irvine. Ahmad Sadri is Professor of Sociology at Lake Forest College.

One of the more surprising demographic facts about Iran is the fact that 70 of the population is under 30 years of age. This simple statistic has molded Iran into an increasingly more modern society with a thriving and unpredictable student population. This population, who is often referred to as Iranian youth, has been strongly linked to the generation of reformist ideas surfacing in Iran. At 7:30 a.m. in Tehran the coercion of the security forces against the opposition had already escalated a point that was considered to be the most aggressive since the Presidential election. The Iranian civilians woke up to scenes in the street only fit for a movie. A city bus had been set on fire in the night and the smoldering wreckage only further illustrated the devastation that this country was experiencing. What seemed to be chaos at this point was only a small glimpse of the near future of the Iranian people. The citizens of Iran should brace themselves for the likelihood of more bloody altercations between the security forces and protesters on the streets of Tehran. By 10:25 a.m., the Iranian state television reported that 10 people were killed as the police and protesters clashed in the streets of Tehran in lieu of the protester s defiance to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Reports said there were at least another 100 protesters severely injured during the clashing. More demonstrators took to the streets of Tehran during the afternoon. Women, youth, students and members of the moderate clerical establishment took to the streets in the thousands chanting and wearing the bright green campaign colors of Moussavi and showing support for the Green Movement.

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. You want to be rich. Perhaps you plan to be very wealthy indeed. Who wouldn t? Talking about the pros and cons of being wealthy seems as one-sided as a boxing match between Warren Buffett and Muhammad Ali. However I ve been giving this some thought - inspired by my strange and unfounded fear of winning 56 million pounds in the lottery- and there are quite a few bad points. Don t get me wrong - it d be a nice problem to have. If you searched out the pros and cons of being wealthy as a sanity check before accepting a briefcase of cash, I say take the money! Later on you can come back and tell us how hard it is being rich. But let s start with the good points. The pros of being wealthy Unless you re very religious, contrarian, or you re visiting our planet ahead of the full-scale invasion from Mars, you ll know how great it is to have money. The esteemed rap poet Nas sums up the general picture as follows: Clothes that I buy, Ice that I wear, Clothes that I try, close your eyes Picture me rollin, sixes, money foldin Bitches honies that swollen to riches. Mr Nas is a bit weak in rhyming the clothes he s trying with those that he s buying, but then he doesn t need to try too hard - Nas knows we ve all dreamed of being rich. He just has to flick the switch. At the very least, being wealthy gets you: -Financial freedom -Holidays anywhere -A great home -Funding for your pastimes and passions -Good suits -Great health care -A swimming pool full of girls in bikinis -Gold teeth Feel free to substitute your own desires. Personally, I d like an island. The downsides of being wealthy When I said this article was about the pros and cons of being wealthy, I meant it: having a lot of money has drawbacks, especially if you get rich overnight. I ve met a fair few rich people over the years, mainly through work, and I ve also read widely on the subject, and I feel confident in listing these negatives. (For clarity, I m talking about being really rich - 10 million / $15 million net worth or more). Money doesn t make you happy After a surprisingly low point, more money doesn t make you happier. Rich people get depressed, just like the middle classes. True, there s no evidence that money actually makes you unhappy (although one rich man is giving it all away) but it could distract you from fixing your real problems. The end of your goals and ambitions You see this with children born into money, as well as people who built a company up for several decades and sold too late to start another. When you have the money, what next? The trick seems to be to find a substitute to your old goal of achieving financial security. That s why you can t walk far in Africa without tripping over a philanthropist. Being judged unfairly People are very critical of the wealthy, especially here in the UK. In the US entrepreneurs are celebrated, but newly rich Brits will find many people waiting for them to fall. I ve seen it in work - a self-made man or woman leaves the room, and someone says well, he was lucky or he s out of ideas or even what an asshole. Not nice, but it happens.

Item Description: Duke University Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 251 x 175 mm. Brand New Book. This special issue of Radical History Review marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Iranian revolution, an event that reverberated across the globe, causing rifts and realignments in international relations, as well as radical changes in Iranian political, social, and cultural institutions. The Iranian revolution of 1979 was a historical inevitability neither in its inception nor in its outcome; however, its continued domestic and global significance - often misunderstood and misinterpreted - remains indisputable. The issue explores the complex and evolving nature of the post-revolutionary dynamics in Iran and calls for renewed reflection on the roots of the revolution, the processes leading to its proponents victory, and its impact on the Muslim world and the global balance of power. The articles in this interdisciplinary issue take up the legacy of the revolution within and outside the borders of Iran and offer critical evaluation and new insights into the transformations that Iran experienced as a result of the revolution. One essay discusses the role of the crowd in the revolution, while another traces the genealogy of the discourse of anti-Zionism in Iranian circles. Other articles explore the treatment of the revolution in the Egyptian press and illustrate how the trauma of the revolution is portrayed in diasporic Iranian women s biographies. The issue also features a Reflections section, which includes eight short essays that provide snapshots of postrevolutionary politics, economics, literature, cinema, and visual arts, demonstrating both radical changes and continuities in Iranian society. Contributors include Ervand Abrahamian, Mahdi Ahouie, Niki Akhavan, Said Amir Arjomand, Mansour Bonakdarian, Behrooz Ghamari-Tabrizi, M. R. Ghanoonparvar, Hanan Hammad, Taraneh Hemami, Persis M.

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.You want to be rich. Perhaps you plan to be very wealthy indeed. Who wouldn t? Talking about the pros and cons of being wealthy seems as one-sided as a boxing match between Warren Buffett and Muhammad Ali. However I ve been giving this some thought - inspired by my strange and unfounded fear of winning 56 million pounds in the lottery- and there are quite a few bad points. Don t get me wrong - it d be a nice problem to have. If you searched out the pros and cons of being wealthy as a sanity check before accepting a briefcase of cash, I say take the money! Later on you can come back and tell us how hard it is being rich. But let s start with the good points. The pros of being wealthy Unless you re very religious, contrarian, or you re visiting our planet ahead of the full-scale invasion from Mars, you ll know how great it is to have money. The esteemed rap poet Nas sums up the general picture as follows: Clothes that I buy, Ice that I wear, Clothes that I try, close your eyes Picture me rollin, sixes, money foldin Bitches honies that swollen to riches. Mr Nas is a bit weak in rhyming the clothes he s trying with those that he s buying, but then he doesn t need to try too hard - Nas knows we ve all dreamed of being rich. He just has to flick the switch. At the very least, being wealthy gets you: -Financial freedom -Holidays anywhere -A great home -Funding for your pastimes and passions -Good suits -Great health care -A swimming pool full of girls in bikinis -Gold teeth Feel free to substitute your own desires. Personally, I d like an island. The downsides of being wealthy When I said this article was about the pros and cons of being wealthy, I meant it: having a lot of money has drawbacks, especially if you get rich overnight. I ve met a fair few rich people over the years, mainly through work, and I ve also read widely on the subject, and I feel confident in listing these negatives. (For clarity, I m talking about being really rich - 10 million / $15 million net worth or more). Money doesn t make you happy After a surprisingly low point, more money doesn t make you happier. Rich people get depressed, just like the middle classes. True, there s no evidence that money actually makes you unhappy (although one rich man is giving it all away) but it could distract you from fixing your real problems. The end of your goals and ambitions You see this with children born into money, as well as people who built a company up for several decades and sold too late to start another. When you have the money, what next? The trick seems to be to find a substitute to your old goal of achieving financial security. That s why you can t walk far in Africa without tripping over a philanthropist. Being judged unfairly People are very critical of the wealthy, especially here in the UK. In the US entrepreneurs are celebrated, but newly rich Brits will find many people waiting for them to fall. I ve seen it in work - a self-made man or woman leaves the room, and someone says well, he was lucky or he s out of ideas or even what an asshole. Not nice, but it happens.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.One of the more surprising demographic facts about Iran is the fact that 70 of the population is under 30 years of age. This simple statistic has molded Iran into an increasingly more modern society with a thriving and unpredictable student population. This population, who is often referred to as Iranian youth, has been strongly linked to the generation of reformist ideas surfacing in Iran. At 7:30 a.m. in Tehran the coercion of the security forces against the opposition had already escalated a point that was considered to be the most aggressive since the Presidential election. The Iranian civilians woke up to scenes in the street only fit for a movie. A city bus had been set on fire in the night and the smoldering wreckage only further illustrated the devastation that this country was experiencing. What seemed to be chaos at this point was only a small glimpse of the near future of the Iranian people. The citizens of Iran should brace themselves for the likelihood of more bloody altercations between the security forces and protesters on the streets of Tehran. By 10:25 a.m., the Iranian state television reported that 10 people were killed as the police and protesters clashed in the streets of Tehran in lieu of the protester s defiance to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Reports said there were at least another 100 protesters severely injured during the clashing. More demonstrators took to the streets of Tehran during the afternoon. Women, youth, students and members of the moderate clerical establishment took to the streets in the thousands chanting and wearing the bright green campaign colors of Moussavi and showing support for the Green Movement.

On inspecting his accounts, the committee condemned the governor to pay three or four lacs of rupees to the Nabob. To obtain either time or a mitigation of part of the sum, he complained for some days of the rigour of this judgment; which he affirmed would ruin him, as he protested he was not possessed of so large a sum. On his refusal, Hyder placed guards about his palace, to prevent water from being brought him, because, as a Bramin, he was obliged to wash himself many times in the day. This step forced him to open a secret repository of treasure in the very palace in which Hyder then resided, but which is the ordinary residence of the Eaja. A French surgeon, who had cured him of a secret disorder for the sum of one thousand rupees, half paid in hand, and the other half due, by a written promise to pay when the cure was completed, not being able to obtain the latter five hundred, though the cure had long been made, thought the present instant favourable to his desire of being paid. Hyder having heard his complaint, said, Do as I did: let no water come into his house till you are paid. But I have no soldiers, replied the surgeon. But you have friends that have, answered the Nabob. Upon which advice the surgeon collected a number of French soldiers, by promising them a part of the sum: they took possession of the palace-gate; and the watercarriers not daring to approach, the surgeon received payment of his note, to the great diversion of Hyder, who, notwithstanding what had passed, did not remove the Raja from his government.

There is no vegetation except in the narrow valleys, and that is scanty. Through supplies and transport are indispensable, and can be obtained at Gurais and Skardu. This is the shortest and m7t direct route from Kashmir to Skardu, and is frequented by travellers, notwithstanding its many drawbacks. At Ali Malik Marhi 01 miles another track turns off eastwards, and crossing the shoulder of the intervening mountain goes down the parallel Sutpur Loongma valley to Skardu. There are 0 marches from Lalpani 07 m., junction of 1 streams on the Sutpur Cho 00 miles, on the eastern shore of the Sutpur Tso or Lake 00 miles, and Skardu 00 miles. Hence there used formerly to be two routes leading over the high Msstagh range towards Yarkund, the two passes being about 0 miles a part. Both have been disused for 0 years, partly owing to changes in the glaciers and to fear of robbers on the Northern side of the range. The route recorded by Major Godwin Austen in 00 is as under: --On the northern side, this route, as explored by Lieutenant F. E. Younghusband in 00, descended down a glacier and after joining the route from the other Mustagh pass at Parong and another path from the Shimshal pass (due west which leads into Hunza) at Suget jungal, came to the Shaksgam or Oprang valley and thence reached the Yarkund river either at Gil or at Dora by crossing the Aghil Dawan pass 16,00 feet in to Raskuni. There is no path yet known onwards down the Yarkund valley, owing it is said to high cliffs which border the river. From Dora, this route goes eastwards up the Yarkund valley to Chiragh Saldi, and thence northwards over the Chiragh. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130342406

As usual the wits, scribblers, and elegists, of every description, were called into the exercise of their vocation; and, upon a nice calculation, it was discovered that, in the course of the first three months, there were published upwards of nine thousand elegies, seven thousand epitaphs, and two hundred and fifty thousand copies of verses.

There is no vegetation except in the narrow valleys, and that is scanty. Through supplies and transport are indispensable, and can be obtained at Gurais and Skardu. This is the shortest and m7t direct route from Kashmir to Skardu, and is frequented by travellers, notwithstanding its many drawbacks. At Ali Malik Marhi 01 miles another track turns off eastwards, and crossing the shoulder of the intervening mountain goes down the parallel Sutpur Loongma valley to Skardu. There are 0 marches from Lalpani 07 m., junction of 1 streams on the Sutpur Cho 00 miles, on the eastern shore of the Sutpur Tso or Lake 00 miles, and Skardu 00 miles. Hence there used formerly to be two routes leading over the high Msstagh range towards Yarkund, the two passes being about 0 miles a part. Both have been disused for 0 years, partly owing to changes in the glaciers and to fear of robbers on the Northern side of the range. The route recorded by Major Godwin Austen in 00 is as under: --On the northern side, this route, as explored by Lieutenant F. E. Younghusband in 00, descended down a glacier and after joining the route from the other Mustagh pass at Parong and another path from the Shimshal pass (due west which leads into Hunza) at Suget jungal, came to the Shaksgam or Oprang valley and thence reached the Yarkund river either at Gil or at Dora by crossing the Aghil Dawan pass 16,00 feet in to Raskuni. There is no path yet known onwards down the Yarkund valley, owing it is said to high cliffs which border the river. From Dora, this route goes eastwards up the Yarkund valley to Chiragh Saldi, and thence northwards over the Chiragh. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130342406
