While the British were able to accomplish abolition in the trans-Atlantic world by the end of the nineteenth century, their efforts paradoxically caused a great increase in legal and illegal slave trading in the western Indian Ocean. Bringing together essays from leading authorities in the field of slavery studies, this comprehensive work offers an original and creative study of slavery and abolition in the Indian Ocean world during this period. Among the topics discussed are the relationship between British imperialism and slavery; Islamic law and slavery; and the bureaucracy of slave trading.
This anthology takes stock of the Indian poetry of the five decades after independence, raises basic conceptual questions, examines paradigm shifts and interrogates the established canons by foregrounding marginalized voices.

"Sleuth Milan Jacovich is working two cases with unsuspected complications." "Case number one comes with a visit from the owner of a small factory who has what he terms a "security problem." Hired to look into the background of one of his clients' employees. Milan discovers that the man is indeed not what he seems. But why isn't he? Milan must dig much deeper into what has turned out to be a very complex situation before he can answer that." "Milan's other case has a very different history. It's winter, the famous Lake Effect is whipping snow and cold onto Cleveland's east side, and on a bench across from Milan's apartment building an aged Native American man has been sitting stolidly for hours and hours, ignoring the brutal weather. The next morning Milan sees that the bench is empty - and then he learns that the old man has been found murdered." "The crime brings Edgar Ettawageshik to Milan; he wants the detective to find out why his grandfather was in Cleveland - and what connection that has to the kidnapping of his infant nephew from their tiny village in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. His first case, the security matter, is forcing Milan to make difficult moral choices. And while the other case gives him an opportunity to assuage some of the guilt he feels for not having done anything about the insistent presence of old Ettawageshik, it also confronts him with the blind hope of grieving parents who look to him for what he's very afraid could only be a miracle. Milan Jacovich will need all his skills, and even more luck, if he is going to be able to write a satisfactory "closed" on either of these tangled affairs."
Amid controversies surrounding the team mascot and brand of the Washington Redskins in the National Football League and the use of mascots by K-12 schools, Americans demonstrate an expanding sensitivity to the pejorative use of references to Native Americans by sports organizations at all levels. In Indian Spectacle, Jennifer Guiliano exposes the anxiety of American middle-class masculinity in relation to the growing commercialization of collegiate sports and the indiscriminate use of Indian identity as mascots. Indian Spectacle explores the ways in which white, middle-class Americans have consumed narratives of masculinity, race, and collegiate athletics through the lens of Indian-themed athletic identities, mascots, and music. Drawing on a cross-section of American institutions of higher education, Guiliano investigates the role of sports mascots in the big business of twentieth-century American college football in order to connect mascotry to expressions of community identity, individual belonging, stereotyped imagery, and cultural hegemony. Against a backdrop of the current level of the commercialization of collegiate sports--where the collective revenue of the fifteen highest grossing teams in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has well surpassed one billion dollars--Guiliano recounts the history of the creation and spread of mascots and university identities as something bound up in the spectacle of halftime performance, the growth of collegiate competition, the influence of mass media, and how athletes, coaches, band members, spectators, university alumni, faculty, and administrators, artists, writers, and members of local communities all have contributed to the dissemination of ideas of Indianness that is rarely rooted in native people's actual lives.
The last days of the British Raj. The end of empire. A love affair between Edwina Mountbatten, wife of the last British viceroy to India, and Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first prime minister. The stroke of midnight on 15 August 1947 liberated 400 million people from the British Empire. With the loss of India, its greatest colony, a nation admitted it was no longer a superpower, and a king ceased to sign himself Rex Imperator. It was one of the defining moments of world history, but it had been brought about by a tiny group of people. Among them were Jawaharlal Nehru, the fiery Indian prime minister with radical plans for a socialist revolution; Mohammed Ali Jinnah, the Muslim leader who would stop at nothing to establish the world's first modern Islamic state; Mohandas Gandhi, the mystical figure who enthralled a nation; and Louis and Edwina Mountbatten, the glamorous but unlikely couple who had been dispatched to get Britain out of India without delay. Within hours of the midnight chimes, the two new nations of India and Pakistan would descend into anarchy and terror. Nehru, Jinnah, Gandhi and the Mountbattens struggled with public and private turmoil while their dreams of freedom and democracy turned to chaos, bloodshed, genocide and war. Indian Summer depicts the epic sweep of events that ripped apart the greatest empire the world has ever seen, and saw one million people killed and ten million dispossessed. It reveals the secrets of the most powerful players on the world stage: the Cold War conspiracies, the private deals, and the intense and clandestine love affair between the wife of the last viceroy and the first prime minister of free India.

The Hoosier state was once part of the vast Northwest Territory inhabited by the Miami and other native tribes. With the coming of the French and English fur traders the region was changed forever. Indiana explores the history of the state from its indigenous origins to the beginning of statehood in 1816.
On a treacherous odyssey to find a fabled black pearl, Indy and his cohort, Mac McHale, must cross the Island of the Dead, where the legend of the "zombi" looms large, and where spiders, snakes, and booby traps will prove the least of Indy's challenges.
Indiana Jones has landed his first teaching post, in the archaeology department at London University. His brightest--and prettiest--student is a twenty-year-old Scottish girl, Deirdre Campbell, who claims she's uncovered a golden scroll, proof of the true existence of Merlin, sorcerer of myth and legend. Indy's intrigued by the thesis ... and by Deirdre. So, too, is member of Parliament Adrian Powell. He's seeking to resurrect the ancient order of the Druids, whose secrets of power could pave his way to world conquest. But first he needs the scroll ... and he's willing to kill to get it. Where there's magic, mystery, and murder, Indy goes to the head of the class. Dropping his books and picking up his bullwhip, he joins Deirdre on an action-packed chase across Britain, from the peril-filled caves of Scotland to the savage dance of the giants at Stonehenge--where Merlin's secret will finally be revealed. But not before Indy gets a lesson in love from Deirdre ... and a lesson in hate from a maniac who means to rule the world.
He's back. Everyone's favorite globe-trotting, treasure-hunting, wisecracking archaeologist is finally at it again-hurtling head first into high adventure and relying on his wits, his fists, and his trusty bullwhip to get him out of deep trouble. But the man in the jaunty brown fedora and battered leather jacket is no ordinary digger in the dirt. From the fabled lost Ark of the Covenant to the legendary Holy Grail, he's salvaged the world's most amazing artifacts, while beating the baddest villains and defying the most breathtaking odds. Now it's 1957, the atomic age is in full swing, and McCarthy-era paranoia has the nation on edge. But for Indiana Jones, the Cold War really heats up when his latest expedition is crashed by a ruthless squad of Russian soldiers. Commanded by a sword-wielding colonel who's as sinister as she is stunning, the menacing Reds drag an unwilling Indy along as they brazenly invade American soil, massacre U.S. soldiers, and plunder a top-secret government warehouse. Their objective: a relic even more precious-and powerful-than the mythic Ark, capable of unlocking secrets beyond human comprehension. Fast thinking and some high-speed maneuvers help Jones turn the tables, and a one-in-a-million escape narrowly saves him from certain death. But when he's tarred as a suspected spy and fired by his university, Indy thinks it may be time to hang up his hat. Fate, however, has other plans. Suddenly the road to retirement takes a sharp detour when a colleague's kidnapping leads Jones into the depths of the Amazon jungle on a desperate rescue mission. With a hot-headed teenage biker as his unlikely wing man and his vengeful new Russian nemesis waiting for a rematch, Indy's back in the game-playing for a prize all the wonders of the world could never rival.
After finding a long-lost inscription in a Mayan pyramid, Indiana Jones is hot on the trail of the world's most dangerous weapon -- something so important that it could decide the fate of World War II. Not surprisingly, a horde of Nazis are after the very same thing! The chase will take Indy from the Yucatan jungles to Rome, Italy; all the way to Egypt, where the heart of the mystery lies. But to discover the fantastic secret, Indy will have to survive battles with one of the most lethal enemies he's ever met!
Early August, 1941. Indiana Jones' luck has finally run out. He's stuck in jail in Puerto Bolivar, Ecuador, with one failed escape already under his belt, when Colonel Musgrove of the US Army comes knocking with an official release -- with strings attached. Musgrove wants Indy to track down the fabled Hall of Records. But Indy soon discovers he's not the only one on the trail. He'll will have to outsmart and outmaneuver his enemies -- but first, he'll have to figure out exactly who his enemies are . . .
When Indiana Jones finds himself in Shanghai on the wrong end of a deal gone bad, he barely escapes with his life. But he only makes it as far as India before trouble finds him once again.
