Another carefully edited and formatted work from the author of "The Subaltern", George Robert Gleig who was diverted to Europe immediately on returning from the disastrous Battle of New... More > Orleans. This version was originally published in the USA in 1847 and has been translated from American into English. The story begins with the preparations for the campaign and continues through the occupation of Paris and the abdication of Napoleon. Gleig himself (or the publishers) introduced a number of errors into the text. For instance, General Ziethan was portrayed variously as "Zeiten" or "Zieten" and this is one oversight that I have chosen to correct.< Less
Pennsylvania Germans An Interpretive Encyclopedia By Sung Yong Park
eBook (PDF): $196.37

More > studies parallels other transdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative efforts that view issues of identity, expression, and representation of diasporic groups. Typically subaltern or stigmatized, these groups have exerted signifi cant cultural, if not political, influence. As a guide to a major American identity visible materially across the landscape, and viable psychologically and socially as a heritage with attendant values for millions of people, this volume suggests the centrality of Pennsylvania German experiences in the formation of ideas in an American context about the practice of ethnic- linguistic difference< Less

It was in the year 1849, at the expiration of the Punjaub campaign, under Lord Gough, where I had been actively engaged as a subaltern officer in the (so-called) fighting brigade of General Sir Colin... More > Campbell’s division of the army, adding my mite to the four successive victorious actions — Ramnugger, Sadoolapore, Chillianwallah, and Guzerat — that I first conceived the idea of exploring Central Equatorial Africa. My plan was made with a view to strike the Nile at its head, and then to sail down that river to Egypt. It was conceived, however, not for geographical interest, so much as for a view I had in my mind of collecting the fauna of those regions, to complete and fully develop a museum in my father’s house, a nucleus of which I had already formed from the rich menageries of India, the Himalaya Mountains, and Tibet. My idea in selecting the new field for my future researches was, that I should find within it various orders and species of animals hitherto unknown.< Less

This volume collects three articles that deal with the imagined women in Western and Indian cultures, from the Greeks up to the gendered Hindu frame of mind in the modern colonial age, before... More > independence. In the West women may be imagined as metamorphic creatures, coming back from death to satisfy an unfulfilled wish, even lust, or as ghoulish snakes or vampires. In the nineteenth century they acquire a revengeful nature and sometimes they embody heathen half-demonic personae. In the Hindu world women are doomed as a rule to subaltern domestic and conjugal roles, according to framed type. This happens in particular with widows who are generally endowed with an inborn power of shattering confusion (moh). However, a numinous spark is still burning inside them who become the external sheath of the Goddess in fight against evil.< Less

This is a love story in a war situation. A subaltern of the Nigerian Army with the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) Peackeeping Force met and fell in love with a Chadian graduate teacher of the... More > Lycee Eboue. It became a whirlwind romance. But like a killjoy, there is the former defence minister, Monsieur Hissene Habre, a French-trained lawyer who was desperate for power. He became the issue in the rounds of conflict that marred Chad’s post-independence journey into nationhood. A bloodthirsty warlord, he mustered a band of hard-fighting men from his base in Sudan and seized power after overrunning the countryside and capturing the capital city of N’Djamena. Thus the lovers were briefly separated when the peacekeeping force left the country. This is a story that highlights the ascendancy to power by sheer superiority of arms of one of Africa’s most brutal rulers in recent history. A story with a happy ending told with earthy humour and an element of romance that carries the entire length of the book.< Less
The Queen of the Savannah: “A Story of the Mexican War” By Gustave Aimard
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The story begins on May 5, 1805, in one of the wildest and most abrupt portions of New Spain, which now forms the State of Coahuila, belonging to the Mexican Confederation. If the reader will have... More > the kindness to take a glance at a numerous cavalcade, or village of Indios mansos, he will at the same time form the acquaintance of several of our principal characters, and the country in which the events recorded in this narrative occurred. This cavalcade was composed of fifteen individuals in all; ten of them were lancers, attired in that yellow uniform which procured them the nickname of tamarindos. These soldiers were execrated by the people, in consequence of their cruelty. They advanced in good order, commanded by a subaltern and an alférez—an old trooper who had grown gray in harness, who had long white moustachios and a disagreeable face. As he galloped on, he looked around him with the careless, wearied air of a man for whom the future reserves no hopes either of ambition, love, or fortune.< Less
