Mesopotamian Mythology: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Near Eastern Myths

by Matt Clayton

If you're looking for a captivating collection of Mesopotamian myths, then keep reading...The civilizations that grew up in the Tigris and Euphrates River Valleys many thousands of years ago have left important legacies: agriculture, mathematics, astronomy, the wheel, and writing. This present volume of Mesopotamian myths is divided into three sections. The first of these contains creation myths, the most extended of which is the Enuma Elish, or Babylonian creation story. In this myth, the god Marduk does battle with the dragon Tiamat, and from her body and that of her second-in-command, he creates the world. The story of Atrahasis involves not original creation but re-creation, since this is the myth of the Great Flood that the gods send to wash everything away. The good man Atrahasis is spared only by the intervention of the god Enki, who forewarns Atrahasis and tells him to build the ark that will save him, his family, and the animals. Etana’s tale is less cosmic in nature than the preceding two stories: the act of creation involved is Etana’s attempt to have a child and thus an heir to his throne.The deeds and foibles of the Mesopotamian gods are on display in the second section, in stories that inform us about the characters of these divinities and which contain themes that tell us something about Mesopotamian concepts of cosmic order. In the first story, the goddess Ishtar decides to visit the Underworld where the goddess Ereshkigal holds sway. When Ereshkigal worries that Ishtar plans to supplant her, she sets a trap that holds Ishtar prisoner until she is rescued. Ereshkigal’s deed has cosmic implications: since Ishtar is a fertility goddess, her imprisonment means that procreation on Earth is suspended. Ereshkigal is a primary figure in the next story as well, which tells how Nergal, god of war and pestilence, comes to be her consort. Nergal manages to refuse all of the blandishments Ereshkigal puts before him, except for the enticement of her body. Having given into his desire, Nergal must make the Underworld his abode and remain there as Ereshkigal’s lover or else Ereshkigal will overturn the natural order by sending the dead onto the Earth to eat the living. Divine and natural order are also themes of the last two stories in this section. In the first, the hero-god Ninurta does his own work of restoring divine order when he defeats the Anzu Bird who steals the Tablets of Destiny from Ellil, while the myth about Adapa functions as a just-so story explaining why humans are not immortal.Perhaps the most famous of all Mesopotamian myths is the Epic of Gilgamesh, an extended narrative about the exploits of Gilgamesh, king of Uruk, and his wild-man friend, Enkidu. If the stories of the gods told in the first two sections function as explanations about cosmic order, the themes of Gilgamesh center on the internal order of human beings, focusing on the deep love and friendship between Enkidu and Gilgamesh, on human fears about mortality, and the human desire for eternal life. In Mesopotamian Mythology: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Near Eastern Myths, you'll find the following Sumerian myths and topics coveredCreation MythsTales of Gods and GoddessesSelections from the Epic of GilgameshAnd much, much more!So if you want a captivating collection of Mesopotamian myths, click the “add to cart” button!

Ottoman Art of War: Power Tactics & Strategy For Today

by Steffan Ileman

They came on horseback from Central Asia and went on to grow one of the longest-lasting empires in history. They established history's first multicultural state centuries before British colonies in North America declared the United States of America. They had superior military and organizational skills that ended the Medieval Age in Europe and set the stage for the Renaissance and the Age of Reason as the power of feudal lords eroded under their big guns. Their legendary elite combat core, the Janissaries, was a phenomenon in transformative education.

Ottoman Empire was Europe's first welfare state based on privately funded charities. The Empire's trade pact with France was history's first free trade agreement. Like the United States the Ottoman Empire attracted talent, know-how and capital from all over to what was the world's biggest free trade zone.

Can the tactics and strategy Ottoman Turks used to grow their Empire be applied to today's entrepreneurial and organizational challenges?

As Islam and its history are uppermost on minds and the news agenda today, this is a fresh perspective on the people that used to be Islam's shield throughout centuries. This is a book about history, but not a history book. It's a businessman's distillation of historical events into tactics and strategy that could be applied to 21st century challenges.

To Destroy Jerusalem (The Jerusalem Spy Series)

by Howard Kaplan

Rich in historical detail, TO DESTROY JERUSALEM is a thrilling tale of espionage, nationalism, and fate When a neutron source— a necessary component in triggering a nuclear explosion— is stolen in New York, the CIA calls on Shai Shaham, the legendary Mossad field agent. To trace the stolen neutron source, Shai needs to locate where and how those behind the theft are obtaining plutonium so he heads to Amsterdam to meet Ramzy Awwad, the Palestinian agent who Shai had been ordered to kill at the end of a mission together. He doesn’t know if Ramzy is more likely to help stop the plotters or join the Palestinian people in the midst of the first intifada (uprising) in the Occupied Territories.Set in 1990, TO DESTROY JERUSALEM is the tale of a terrifying plot that spans the globe, from Rio de Janeiro to war-torn Beirut to the West Bank. As Shai rushes to avert catastrophe, he unearths a link to the underground intifada in Jerusalem, and he tracks the conspirators until they thwart him with an ingenious plan to bridge the heavily fortified northern border into Israel.Whether Shai will be able to depend on Ramzy to help stop a horrific attack is a question on which the fate of these peoples—and the greater world--depends.

Language between God and the Poets: Ma‘na in the Eleventh Century (Berkeley Series in Postclassical Islamic Scholarship Book 2)

by Alexander Key

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. In the Arabic eleventh-century, scholars were intensely preoccupied with the way that language generated truth and beauty. Their work in poetics, logic, theology, and lexicography defined the intellectual space between God and the poets. In Language Between God and the Poets, Alexander Key argues that ar-Raghib al-Isfahani, Ibn Furak, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), and Abd al-Qahir al-Jurjani shared a conceptual vocabulary based on the words ma‘na and haqiqah. They used this vocabulary to build theories of language, mind, and reality that answered perennial questions: how to structure language and reference, how to describe God, how to construct logical arguments, and how to explain poetic affect.

Iran: Make Love not War: Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll on the Silk Road

by Mary Jane Walker

“THE first thing I saw at the border was a man’s butt as he stuffed smuggled cigarettes down his trousers. I met prostitutes whose profession was sanctioned as temporary marriage by clerics. I was offered alcohol and all the drugs under the sun in the north, and saw illegal pubs with people drinking. And I saw the most fabulous crown jewels and palaces anywhere.“All this I experienced travelling overland and learning tips to pass on to you. I saw Tehran, the Shah’s Golestan Palace, Persepolis, Isfahan, Shiraz, and Yazd. Many women took their hijabs off whenever they could, and people played music under the bridges of Isfahan. I discovered the ancient religion of Zoroastrianism and visited its funeral towers where the dead were laid out to be eaten by vultures. These were near the Star Wars-like desert city of Yazd, where wind towers drew cool air through underground caverns to air-condition the houses of hundreds of years ago.“I went mountaineering and saw old mosques and palaces and cafes lined with smashed mirrors and others with stained glass.”

COMM UP: A Marine's Reflections on the Opening of the Iraq War

by AARON Albers

March 19, 2003 and America is on the eve of war. In the Kuwaiti desert, thousands of young Americans and their coalition partners stand ready to start the war against Iraq, if ordered too. Many of them would be facing combat for the first time, and each of them carry their own thoughts and worries, which would change from day to day; the initial drive into Iraq and the early problems in the war, the weather and operational pause to the fall of Baghdad. And then getting home. Now 15 years after his involvement in the invasion, Aaron Albers commemorates the anniversary by sharing his story of a time when he was one of the thousands involved in the drive to Baghdad.

Children of the Magi: A Sacred History of the Kurds and the Persians

by Christopher Crossan

Few societies on earth are as privileged as the Kurds and Persians. Unlike other nations and continents, the people living in Mesopotamia, the Zagros mountains, and Persia have witnessed some of the key historical events affecting all humanity which were recorded in the sacred writings of the Jews. These include the dispersion of Noah’s grandchildren, the building of the tower of Babel, the deportation of the Jews, the arrival of the prophet Daniel, the rise of Queen Esther, the commissioning of Ezra the high priest, and the visit of the Magi to Bethlehem. Four Medo-Persian kings - Darius, Cyrus, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes - are mentioned in these writings. Furthermore, the primeval events of history took place in Mesopotamia, including the creation of Adam and Eve, the garden of Eden, the fall of man, early human civilization, and the great flood. Sadly, today’s Kurds and Persians know little of their sacred history. This book is an attempt to re-introduce them to their rich inheritance, namely, the revelation of the Most High God, and to enlighten readers from other cultures who would also like an encounter with the central character of human history.

DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed Volume 1

by Mark Gery

Volume 1 of DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed lays out the underpinnings of the 1991 Gulf conflict between Iraq and an international coalition led by the United States. This includes the unique nature of the Iraqi Arab Rebirth regime (1968-2003), the history of US involvement in the Middle East, and the political campaign against Saddam Hussein and Iraq that began in early 1989. Along the way, the book explores the events of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, the founding of the state of Israel, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the Iran-Iraq War. Special attention is given to the development of Iraqi military power during the 1980s and the increased US involvement in the Persian Gulf region during that same time period.Volume 1 concludes with the buildup in tension between Iraq and Kuwait during the summer of 1990 leading to the Iraqi invasion of the small Gulf country in August of that year. The covert and overt actions of both the United States and Israel are covered during this period, as well as Saddam Hussein's provocative speeches that strongly suggested he an his country were bound for a confrontation with the West over Kuwait.

Son of a Meddah

by NuFaShe

His parents had named him Sahl, meaning "easy," hoping that he would have a simple and happy life. Maybe if they had named him "difficult" it would actually have turned out that way. Born at the turn of the 20th century in the Ottoman Empire, Sahl had already experienced an earthquake, an assassination attempt on the sultan, the death of a family member, and his Empire's crushing defeat in the Balkans, which included a serious injury to his father, all before he was even a teenager. Hence, by the time World War I started, there wasn't really much Sahl hadn't been through. Until, of course, he finds who the Empire believes to be the root cause of all its problems and has sentenced to annihilation hiding in the back of his caravan.

SON OF A MEDDAH is a young adult historical novel set in both a temporal and physical crossroads. It follows Sahl's journey from his happiness through his depression, to how his initial attempts to recover take him down a darker road before the same people he thought were his enemies help him emerge from the hole.

DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed Volume 2

by Mark Gery

Volume 2 of DEBACLE starts by offering the reader one of the only detailed presentations of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. Then comes the first Bush administration's concerted efforts to promote and organize a massive US military response to the invasion, irrespective of the wishes of several Arab states, many members of the United Nations, and most of the American public. Concurrent with this is the large-scale preparation for war by the US military as well as the Iraqi side. The key goals for the war are explained in detail, as well as the White Houses efforts to block or otherwise derail all moves toward a diplomatic solution to the crisis. Volume 2 of DEBACLE then spells out the first phase of the Gulf War itself. Iraq's brazen and demoralizing SCUD attacks on Israel are depicted, along with the tremendous political tension between Tel Aviv and Washington that quickly took hold. Far from desperate moves to bring Israel into the war, the missile counter-attacks were actually astute moves by Saddam Hussein to cause pointed antipathy between two of his foes and to derail much of the coalition air attack on his country. The limits of the strategic air campaign against Iraq are then spelled out in depth, including the general failures of the Stealth bomber, Tomahawk cruise missiles, and the overall fruitless quest to get to Iraq's political leadership and its nuclear, biological and chemical weapons programs. This is contrasted with the widespread damage done to Iraq's civilian infrastructure, including hundreds of civilian deaths from the air bombardment. The tactical operation to destroy Iraqi forces in southern Iraq is then laid out, highlighted by the immense difficulty the coalition had in gaining real-time bomb-damage assessments on Iraqi targets and providing timely attack coordinates to the pilots involved in the attack. Consequently, and also because of adept counter-measures by the Iraqis, the tactical phase of the air war is shown to be a general failure. Volume 2 ends with the surprise Iraqi invasion of Saudi Arabia, highlighted by the easy takeover of the city of Khafji near the Kuwaiti border. Iraqi tactics are shown to have capitalized on the failures of the US Air force to block the takeover, and additional failures by the Saudis and other Gulf states to retake the city quickly are presented. Placed throughout Volume 2 are examples of frustration and anger on the part of American military officials involved in the war effort as well as building concern and overall discontent on the part of President Bush and other key members of the White House. Also integrated throughout the volume are dozens of video links to relevant speeches, television news broadcasts, and battlefield footage relevant to the given text.

The Afsharid and Qajar Dynasty: A Captivating Guide to Two Iranian Dynasties Who Ruled Persia from 1736 to 1925

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Afsharid and Qajar Dynasty, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!Most people have heard about the famous and mighty Persian Empire of old, be it the one ruled by the Achaemenid Dynasty which challenged the Greeks and ultimately fell to the might Alexander the Great or the later Persian Empire ruled by the Parthian and Sassanid Dynasties which fought against the Romans an the Byzantines before being conquered by the Arab tribes which brought the Islamic religion to the Iranian Plateau. However, after those glory days of the ancient era, the Persian story is relatively ignored, hidden in the dark corners of history. Because of this, most of us have no idea how the Persian Empire became the contemporary Iranian republic. This guide aims to fill this hole in the Persian story, taking a look at the modern history of Iran during which this crucial change occurred. Through retelling this part of the Iranian past, which was one of the hardest and most devastating eras for the people of Iran, this book will also try to portray the development of the Iranian culture and civilization, exploring its uniqueness and its evolution. On top of all that, it will try to depict the lives of the common population, those who remain silent and voiceless despite being the overwhelming majority. Combing through all these elements will provide an interesting insight into the Iranian past but also explain why this country has become so notorious and anti-Western in the last several decades. Hopefully, understanding the past will one day lead to the healing of this broken relationship and lead the entire world one step closer to universal peace. Of course, this isn't a task which can be achieved through one single guide, but it can be seen as a small step in the right direction, leading to a better comprehension of the Iranian civilization as a whole and its place on the world stage. In The Afsharid and Qajar Dynasty: A Captivating Guide to Two Iranian Dynasties Who Ruled Persia from 1736 to 1925, you will discover topics such asGeography and Ancient History of PersiaModern History of Persia and the Afsharid DynastyThe Persian Empire under the Qajar DynastyModern Persian SocietyCulture of Modern PersiaAnd much, much more!So if you want to learn more about the history of the Afsharid and Qajar Dynasty, scroll up and click the "add to cart" button!

How could a people who’d been scattered for two millennia reestablish a homeland on their ancient soil?Against all odds, an irresistible desire to return grew in courageous Jewish men and women who set out to rebuild their decimated homeland.Help came first through Great Britain’s pledge to restore Palestine to the Jews. Britain, however, nearly reneged on that promise just as the Jews faced the Nazi Holocaust.Near the end of WWII, an unlikely man rose to the presidency of the United States. Harry S. Truman, a farmer and failed business owner, would decide not only the fate of Jewish survivors but also the future of their homeland.As a vote approached in the fledgling United Nations, pressure mounted. Truman slammed the White House doors shut to all who wanted to discuss Jewish statehood. Could anyone persuade the most powerful man in the world to reconsider?I Am Cyrus tells the epic story of Israel’s rebirth—promises made, promises broken, and ultimately the fulfillment of the ancient prophecy that this people would indeed return to their Promised Land.Check out the book trailers for I Am Cyrus:youtu.be/J0BOeDbxpicyoutu.be/ESezckRGmQk

Catch The Jew!: Eye-opening education - You will never look at Israel the same way again

by Tuvia Tenenbom

Don't miss out on Tuvia's newest #1 book! Search for 'The Lies They Tell' and get it today!Catch the Jew! recounts the adventures of gonzo journalist Tuvia Tenenbom, who wanders around Israel and the Palestinian Authority for seven months in search of the untold truths in today's Holy Land. With holy chutzpah, Tenenbom boldly goes where no Jew has gone before, at times risking his life as he assumes the identities of Tobi the German and even Abu Ali in order to probe into the many stories in this strange land and poke holes in all of them.From the self-hating leftists in Tel Aviv to the self-promoting PLO execs in Ramallah, from the black-clad Haredim of Bet Shemesh to the glowing foreign human rights activists in Beit Hanina, from Jewish settlers and the Christians who come from abroad to toil with them to ardent Jerusalem monks and Bedouins in surprisingly glorious shacks, Tenenbom takes on the people of the land, getting to know them and disarming them as he breaks bread and mingles with anyone and everyone.Does Palestinian wife number one hate the Jews more than she hates wife number two? Who finances cash-rich NGOs pursuing a Judenrein Israel? Who sets Palestinian olive groves on fire and why? What is the emotional gravity that pulls idealistic human rights activists from other countries to Israel and only to Israel? Who are the flaming feminists who sacrifice their lives for the rights of polygamists? Whose land is this, anyway?By turns poignant, enraging, and laugh-out-loud funny, this unique travelogue lays bare the intensity of this turbulent land in an unprecedented, eye-opening education, person by person, city by city, and meal by meal. You will never look at Israel the same way again.
