Book Description :

We in the west share a common narrative of world history—that runs from the Nile Valley and Mesopotomia, through Greece and Rome and the French Revolution, to the rise of the secular state and the triumph of democracy. But our story largely omits a whole civilization that until quite recently saw itself at the center of world history, and whose citizens shared an entirely different narrative for a thousand years. In Destiny Disrupted, Tamim Ansary tells the rich story of world history as the Islamic world saw it, from the time of Mohammed to the fall of the Ottoman Empire and beyond. He clarifies why our civilizations grew up oblivious to each other, what happened when they intersected, and how the Islamic world was affected by its slow recognition that Europe—a place it long perceived as primitive and disorganized—had somehow hijacked destiny. Entertaining and enlightening, Destiny Disrupted also offers a vital perspective on current conflicts.

Book Description :

The current political standoffs of the 'War on Terror' illustrate that the interaction within and between the so-called Western and Middle Eastern civilizations is constantly in flux. A recurring theme however is how Islam and Muslims signify the 'Enemy' in the Western socio-cultural imagination and have become the 'Other' against which the West identifies itself. In a unique and insightful blend of critical race, feminist and post-colonial theory, Sunera Thobani examines how Islam is foundational to the formation of Western identity at critical points in its history, including the Crusades, the Reconquista and the colonial period. More specifically, she explores how masculinity and femininity are formed at such pivotal junctures and what role feminism has played in the wars against 'radical' Islam. Exposing these symbiotic relationships, Thobani explores how the return of 'religion' is reworking the racial, gender and sexual politics by which Western society defines itself, and more specifically, defines itself against Islam. Contesting Islam, Constructing Race and Sexuality unpacks conventional as well as unconventional orthodoxies to open up new spaces in how we think about sexual and racial identity in the West and the crucial role that Islam has had and continues to have in its development.

Book Description :

By the author of Destiny Disrupted: An enlightening, lively, accessible, history of Afghanistan from 1840 to today, from the Afghan point of view, that illuminates how Great Power conflicts have interrupted an ongoing, internal struggle to take form as a nation. Five times in the last two centuries, some great power has tried to invade, occupy, or otherwise take control of Afghanistan. And as Tamim Ansary shows in this illuminating history, every intervention has come to grief in much the same way and for much the same reason: The intervening power has failed to understand that Afghanistan has a story of its own, a story that continues to unfold between, and despite, the interventions. Games without Rules tells this story from the inside looking out. Drawing on his Afghan background, Muslim roots, and Western and Afghan sources, Ansary weaves an epic that moves from a universe of village republics--the old Afghanistan--through a tumultuous drama of tribes, factions, and forces, to the current struggle. Ansary paints a richly textured portrait of a nation that began to form around the same time as the United States but is still struggling to coalesce; a nation driven by its high ambitions but undermined by its own demons, while every forty to sixty years a great power crashes in and disrupts whatever progress has been made. A compelling narrative told in an accessible, conversational style, Games without Rules offers revelatory insight into a country long at the center of international debate, but never fully understood by the outside world.

Book Description :

From language to culture to cultural collision: the story of how humans invented history, from the Stone Age to the Virtual Age Traveling across millennia, weaving the experiences and world views of cultures both extinct and extant, The Invention of Yesterday shows that the engine of history is not so much heroic (battles won), geographic (farmers thrive), or anthropogenic (humans change the planet) as it is narrative. Many thousands of years ago, when we existed only as countless small autonomous bands of hunter-gatherers widely distributed through the wilderness, we began inventing stories--to organize for survival, to find purpose and meaning, to explain the unfathomable. Ultimately these became the basis for empires, civilizations, and cultures. And when various narratives began to collide and overlap, the encounters produced everything from confusion, chaos, and war to cultural efflorescence, religious awakenings, and intellectual breakthroughs. Through vivid stories studded with insights, Tamim Ansary illuminates the world-historical consequences of the unique human capacity to invent and communicate abstract ideas. In doing so, he also explains our ever-more-intertwined present: the narratives now shaping us, the reasons we still battle one another, and the future we may yet create.

Book Description :

Road Trips, a memoir by Tamim Ansary, recounts stories from his years as part of the American ?60s and ?70s counterculture, after he arrived from Afghanistan where he was born and raised. The book revolves around three arduous journeys he launched from his home base in Portland, Oregon, between 1969, when he hitchhiked across North America with five dollars in his pocket, and 1975, when he and a girlfriend went on a four-month road trip that ended up in the Yucatan jungle near the ruins of Tulum. These odysseys are bracketed by a prologue, in which ten-year-old Ansary accompanies his father on a journey to find a legendary alabaster mountain in southwestern Afghanistan; and an epilogue, in which Ansary stumbles on a sheaf of long-lost letters from his counterculture years. The stories unfold against the familiar background of communes and collectives, Woodstock and Watergate, sex, dope, acid, rock'n'roll, and the end of civilization as we know it, but at heart this is not a history of those all too-well-chronicled times; it's a mythic private story of which we all have some idiosyncratic version of our own: the passage from wonderstruck childhood to contemplative old age.

The word brings up images of ghosts, spirits, Bigfoot, UFOs, out-of-body and near-death experiences, hauntings, psychics, parallel universes, astral projection, and other phenomena that are beyond our normal experience. Most of us are intrigued by the possibilities of the unknown part of our world, what happens to us after death, and if we've lived before. And a lot of us are also very skeptical of anything that we can't see, feel, explain or prove. Within these pages you will be introduced to events that will touch your heart, make you smile and even shed tears. The authors tell us of spirits who helped them when they were sick, protected them from danger and sure death, and came back from the other side to offer the reassurance and closure when it was needed the most and how a psychic's prediction protected one author from harm. You will also learn from one author's first hand experience how lessons learned in a past life can assist you in this life. All of the events included in Paranormal Experiences Volume I are told just as they happened to the authors, in the hopes that their experience opens your eyes to what is behind the veil. As theworld grows more chaotic with unrest, we all are seeking to understand otherworldly events in order to find peace within the confusion. By opening ourselves to possibilities that may have seemed impossible before, we are finding our true selves, our true beings, and we are walking the path toward spiritual enlightenment.

Book Description :

Although the Mapuche (indigenous Chilean citizens) had always been discriminated against, the Pinochet military junta heightened this ideology by confiscating their land, severely curtailing their movements within the country and denying them many of their basic human rights.In 1976, a nineteen-year-old Mapuche farm laborer, Sayen Millaman, leaves the vineyard in South Central Chile where she'd spent her entire life, and travels to Santiago to seek her fortune. Unable to achieve her goals by legitimate means, Sayen teams up with a streetwise Mapuche petty criminal, Aylen Cayancura, in the hope of finding the wealth she desperately yearns for, through crime.Initially the two women prey on defenseless old men, pick-pocketing and tricking them, but as their greed grows they turn to armed robbery, resulting in the robbing of an elderly Indian tailor with tragic consequences.Running parallel to Sayen's story is the story of the privileged life of Roberto Salazar, heir to his late father's steel construction business.The two stories merge when Sayen and Aylen attempt to rob Roberto after he leaves the bank with the firm's wages.What follows is an intriguing sequence of incidents and coincidence that bring out the realities of the harsh and uncaring world that Sayen finds herself in.

Book Description :

Gary Paul Nabhan takes the reader on a vivid and far-ranging journey across time and space in this fascinating look at the relationship between the spice trade and culinary imperialism. Drawing on his own family’s history as spice traders, as well as travel narratives, historical accounts, and his expertise as an ethnobotanist, Nabhan describes the critical roles that Semitic peoples and desert floras had in setting the stage for globalized spice trade. Traveling along four prominent trade routes—the Silk Road, the Frankincense Trail, the Spice Route, and the Camino Real (for chiles and chocolate)—Nabhan follows the caravans of itinerant spice merchants from the frankincense-gathering grounds and ancient harbors of the Arabian Peninsula to the port of Zayton on the China Sea to Santa Fe in the southwest United States. His stories, recipes, and linguistic analyses of cultural diffusion routes reveal the extent to which aromatics such as cumin, cinnamon, saffron, and peppers became adopted worldwide as signature ingredients of diverse cuisines. Cumin, Camels, and Caravans demonstrates that two particular desert cultures often depicted in constant conflict—Arabs and Jews—have spent much of their history collaborating in the spice trade and suggests how a more virtuous multicultural globalized society may be achieved in the future.

Book Description :

In one consequential volume, Crisscrossing Borders in Literature of the American West presents the cross-section of a fast-changing and greatly expanded field. Through interdisciplinary essays, this volume on the post-national West challenges the idea of a unified national story sustained by strategic exclusions. Contributors analyze the economic and environmental exploitation depicted in working-class Western literature, emphasize the transnational by approaching both the North/South and cross-Atlantic axes grapple with the role of Mormons, and dissect the new masculinity of “Silicon Gunslingers.” Each essay successfully and compellingly models a new and fruitful way of engaging the West.
