Into the Darkness: The Harrowing True Story of the Titanic Disaster: Riveting First-Hand Accounts of Agony, Sacrifice and Survival

by Alan J. Rockwell

They are all gone now―the Titanic survivors. No human being who stood on her decks that fateful night was alive to commemorate the event on its 100th anniversary. Their stories are with us, however, and the lessons remain. From the moment the world learned the Titanic had sunk, we wanted to know, who had survived? Those answers didn’t come until the evening of Thursday, April 18, 1912―when the Cunard liner Carpathia finally reached New York with the 706 survivors who had been recovered from Titanic’s lifeboats.Harold Bride, “Titanic’s surviving wireless operator,” relayed the story of the ship’s band. “The way the band kept playing was a noble thing. I heard it first while still we were working wireless when there was a ragtime tune for us. The last I saw of the band, whe...

Witness to Marvels: Sufism and Literary Imagination (Islamic Humanities Book 2)

by Tony K. Stewart

A free open access ebook is available upon publication. Learn more at www.luminosoa.org.  There is a vast body of imaginal literature in Bengali that introduces fictional Sufi saints into the complex mythological world of Hindu gods and goddesses. Dating to the sixteenth century, the stories—pir katha—are still widely read and performed today. The events that play out rival the fabulations of the Arabian Nights, which has led them to be dismissed as simplistic folktales, yet the work of these stories is profound: they provide fascinating insight into how Islam habituated itself into the cultural life of the Bangla-speaking world. In Witness to Marvels, Tony K. Stewart unearths the dazzling tales of Sufi saints to signal a bold new perspective on the subtle ways Islam assumed its dist...

Mysticism in Nepal and Tibet, The Himalayan Journals of M.G. Hawking: August 2019 Edition Exploratory Anthology

by M.G. Hawking

New Release There has long been a deep desire felt by scholars, both past and present, to recover the silent secrets of the ancient cultures of Tibet and Nepal, to trace the background of their prehistoric spiritual development as derived from ever earlier cultures, and then to discover whatever modern manifestations might still exist in the remote margins of that mysterious world. This desire has exerted a powerful pull on the imaginations of Westerners—historians, philologists, Tibetologists, philosophers, physicists, and psi researchers alike.Composed from the journals of explorer M.G. Hawking’s five years in remote areas of the Himalayas, this book transports the reader into regions of our planet that in all history only a handful of people have experienced, a journey that leads t...

Aryan Imperium : The Worldview and Geopolitics of the Alt-Right

A Rooftop Above Reality: A Katrina Story

by Jared Andrukanis

Reality can be stranger than fiction. For a few days during and after Hurricane Katrina, some close friends and two very patient dogs spent some quality time together after the levees broke and stranded them in a freshly flooded New Orleans. This is their story. The dogs story, too.

A Rooftop Above Reality is not necessarily a sad story, or at least it certainly isn't intended to be, but is simply a day to day of what went down on a very strange week in that very stormy summer. Plain and simple. As far as Katrina evacuees go, they were not the people the country saw stranded on rooftops during the media barrage after the hurricane made landfall. The people the world saw as victims. It's a group of real people in an unreal scenario, doing their best to get by, and figuring it ...

Great Britain learns of Russia’s plans to annex India, the 'jewel in the crown' of the Empire. A British officer rides for Khiva, a Russian city closed to European travelers.

This account of his perilous journey to Khiva, published in 1876 and immediately reprinted, brought him instant fame....

Without a Trace: 1881-1968

by Sylvia Wrigley

True Stories of Aircraft and Passengers Who Disappeared Into Thin AirFor many, aviation still brings with it an air of mystery, a century-long magic trick. Though most of us will board an aircraft at some point in our lives, we know little about how they work and the procedures surrounding their operation. It is that mystery that makes these losses, such as the vanishing of Malaysia Airlines flight 370, so terrifying.Without a Trace explores the most interesting of these disappearances: mysteries that have baffled investigators for years. Occasionally tragic, frequently amusing, Without a Trace is unerringly accurate and informative.The two Without a Trace volumes span 150 years and explore mysteries from around the world. This is volume one, beginning just before the golden age of aviatio...

Too Useful to Sacrifice: Reconsidering George B. McClellan’s Generalship in the Maryland Campaign from South Mountain to Antietam

by Steven R. Stotelmyer

The importance of Robert E. Lee’s first movement north of the Potomac River in September 1862 is difficult to overstate. After his string of successes in Virginia, a decisive Confederate victory in Maryland or Pennsylvania may well have spun the war in an entirely different direction. Why he and his Virginia army did not find success across the Potomac was due in large measure to the generalship of George B. McClellan, as Steven Stotelmyer ably demonstrates in Too Useful to Sacrifice: Reconsidering George B. McClellan’s Generalship in the Maryland Campaign from South Mountain to Antietam.Although typecast as the slow and overly cautious general who allowed Lee’s battered army to escape, in fact, argues Stotelmyer, General McClellan deserves significant credit for defeating and turnin...

Sweet Land of Liberty: Old Times in the Colonies

by Charles Carleton Coffin

"The settlement of our country was the beginning of a new era in human affairs. The people of England, ever since the days of King John, when the barons compelled him to sign the Magna Charta in the meadow of Runnymede, had struggled against tyranny; and when the emigrants sailed across the Atlantic to rear their homes in Virginia and New England, it was the transplanting of liberty to a continent where everything was new, and where the conditions that surrounded them were wholly unlike those of the Old World.This volume is an outline of some of the principal events that transpired during the colonial period of our country, and portrays the ardships and sufferings of those who laid the foundations of a new empire. It will show how the Old World laws, habits, and customs were gradually chan...
