Buddhist and Islamic Orders in Southern Asia: Comparative Perspectives

by R. Michael Feener

Over the last few decades historians and other scholars have succeeded in identifying diverse patterns of connection linking religious communities across Asia and beyond. Yet despite the fruits of this specialist research, scholars in the subfields of Islamic and Buddhist studies have rarely engaged with each other to share investigative approaches and methods of interpretation. This volume was conceived to open up new spaces of creative interaction between scholars in both fields that will increase our understanding of the circulation and localization of religious texts, institutional models, ritual practices, and literary specialists.The book’s approach is to scrutinize one major dimension of the history of religion in Southern Asia: religious orders. “Orders” (here referring to Su...

The Grand Civilization, Ancient Egypt's Profound Mysteries: The Esoteric Sources of Their Knowledge

by M.G. Hawking

Penetrate one of the Great Mysteries of the Ages...Few mysteries have captured the fascination of enlightened minds so much as the epic civilization of Ancient Egypt. The "discovery" of Egypt is one of the most brilliant chapters in archaeology. The Middle Ages knew of Egypt only as a Roman colony; the Renaissance presumed that civilization had begun with Greece; even the Enlightenment knew nothing of Ancient Egypt beyond the Pyramids. Egyptology was a by-product of Napoleonic imperialism. When the Corsican led a French expedition to Egypt in 1798 he took with him scholars interested in Egypt for the sake of a better understanding of history. It was those men who returned home with the greatest mystery of the ages in their grasp, and first revealed the magnificent temples of Luxor and Karn...

An American Adviser in Vietnam: My Story

by Lt. Col. (Ret) Joe A. Putnam

In 1967, Joe Putnam, fresh out of officer training school, is shipped overseas to Vietnam as part of President Johnson’s American Adviser program.

This plan would supposedly keep the Communists at bay without actually getting the U.S. into full-fledged war in Southeast Asia.In his military memoir, now retired Lt. Col. Joe A. Putnam perfectly captures the action, the people, the battles, and of course the mixed feelings of a young man far away from home in a foreign land.Most of all, even now, Putnam wonders why he survived numerous harrowing episodes when others did not....

Journey of a Lost Manuscript: The rediscovery in Warrnambool of a Sixteenth Century manuscript believed destroyed by fire

by Lorraine Smith

A true story. To interested onlookers at the Tudor court, the birth of a second daughter to Henry VIII, one of the most powerful kings England has ever knows, was a non-event. That she would rise to be their queen was unthinkable. But Elizabeth I reigned for almost forty-five years and was loved by her subjects. Halfway through her reign, in a rural location in West Yorkshire, a scribe acknowledged Elizabeth as monarch on the document he was preparing. He couldn't know his words would be read by people more than four centuries later on the other side of the world. When the old parchment was found inside a copy of Alice in Wonderland in a second hand bookshop, everything about it was a mystery. Discovered to be an Elizabethan manuscript, this is the enthralling story of its travels from Gil...

My Raging Case of Beastie Fever

by Matt Burns

The year is 1987. A young Matt Burns is home sick from kindergarten. He’s tired of watching daytime cartoons like “Thunder Cats” and “Gummy Bears”. He makes sure his mom isn’t around…he sneakily switches the channel to MTV…and what he sees will change his life forever:It’s three rappers and they’re crashing some nerdy house party. These guys are rude and crude and, most strikingly, they’re…white? Wait-whaaa? Rappers? White?! This is strange. This is something Burns has never seen before. He’s fascinated and can’t look away. In fact, he pretty much won’t look away for about 30 years…When you look up “Beastie Boys super-fan” in the dictionary (it’s in there, trust me), you will find a picture of Matt Burns. Over the years, he has performed both “Sure S...

Celts: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Celtic History and Mythology, Including Their Battles Against the Roman Republic in the Gallic Wars

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Celts, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!Today, the word Celtic means so many things. To most of us, it means something related to Ireland. We think of intricately designed Irish crosses, four-leaf clovers, and some of the more well-known stories of Celtic mythology. However, while Celtic culture has stayed alive in Ireland, its roots run much deeper, and they extend much farther than the small island nation off the coast of modern-day Great Britain. The story of the Celts is one of a rapid rise to prominence followed by a slow decline due to the influence of the Romans. But even so, Celtic culture has remained strong in Europe and has been able to persist to this day. So, even though the Celts represent just a small part o...

The Hidden Story of Richard Sorge

by Conrad Bauer

Richard Sorge was the greatest spy that the world has ever known.
Read his story and find out how his spy work changed the course of history.

It can be easy to think of spies just as we see them in the movies. All of the high speed car chases, the witty one liners, and the femme fatales feed into a common conception of an international man of mystery. But real spy work is different. Real spy work is, ultimately, human. It is conducted by flawed men, exploiting the fear and ambition of similarly damaged individuals. At the end, the credits do not roll. Spies are far likelier to find themselves caught and executed in a foreign land than they are to drive off into the sunset with a new paramour on their arm. Real spies are real people and they are in real danger at all tim...

*Includes pictures*Includes ancient accounts and Scripture passages*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contents“And Jesus suffered no man to follow Him, save Peter and James and John.” – Mark 5:37Apart from Jesus, there is no character more vividly presented in the gospels than Peter. To talk of Saint Peter is to talk about a man of action. There is a good reason why he is the apostle with the most mentions in the Gospels, and the most referred to in the New Testament (a total of 195 times). In comparison, John, the next most popular disciple, barely reaches 29 references. It is at decisive moments which require a categorical reaction where the leader of the Twelve shines; it is then that Peter —born as Simon Bar-Jonah— has no riv...

GUN CONTROL: What's the answer?

by Kenneth Edward Barnes

Why is there such controversy about gun control? One side says, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” The other side believes that if no one had guns the world would be a much safer place. Who is right? In this little book of about 22,500-words, I look at the argument and see if either side is right and if not what the answer really is. Why am I qualified to write this book? I grew up in the fifties and sixties when the world was much different. Murder was almost not known in the towns and cities where I lived. Now anytime you turn on the local news, there has been a murder, an attempted murder or a robbery. I have also been an author and outdoor writer for many years. I have also owned and used many different types of firearms and have written about them. What I w...

The 1865 Fall of Richmond in Pictures

by Charles A Mills

Captured in pictures. The last death agonies of the Confederacy: By late afternoon it seemed that all who could leave the city were stampeding. Commissary stores were thrown open, and their hoarded contents distributed to eager crowds. As the day wore on the scenes at the various government stores changed from the fairly orderly distribution of supplies to rank plundering. Whiskey stocks were broken into and the streets ran with liquor. Factories, arsenals and mills were ordered destroyed, some were blown up, and others were burned. The fires were soon out of control. Admiral Raphael Semmes wrote, “The Tredegar Iron Works were on fire, and continual explosions of loaded shell stored there were taking place....The population was in a great state of alarm.” Admiral Semmes ...
