Summary

Olga Greenlaw kept the War Diary of the American Volunteer Group--the Flying Tigers--while those gallant mercenaries defended Burma and China from Japanese aggression during the opening months of the Pacific War. Returning to the United States in 1942, she wrote The Lady and the Tigers, which war correspondent Leland Stowe hailed as "an authoritative, gutsy and true to life story of the AVG."  
 
Out of print for more than half a century, her book was brought up to date by Daniel Ford, author of the prize-winning history, Flying Tigers: Claire Chennault and His American Volunteers, 1941-1942. What's more, Ford explained for the first time where Olga and Harvey Greenlaw came from, how they became caught up in the saga of the Flying Tigers, and what became of them after their tumultuous year with the AVG. With photographs from the print edition.

    Is religion a source of political stability and social continuity, or an agent of radical change? This question, so central to contemporary conversations about religion and extremism, has generated varied responses over the last century. Taking Jewish and Islamic education as its objects of inquiry, Mandatory Separation sheds light on the contours of this debate in Palestine during the formative period of British rule, detailing how colonial, Zionist, and Palestinian-Muslim leaders developed competing views of the form and function of religious education in an age of mass politics. 
     
    Drawing from archival records, school syllabi, textbooks, newspapers, and personal narratives, Suzanne Schneider argues that the British Mandatory government supported religious education as a supposed antidote to nationalist passions at the precise moment when the administrative, pedagogic, and curricular transformation of religious schooling rendered it a vital tool for Zionist and Palestinian leaders. This study of their policies and practices illuminates the tensions, similarities, and differences among these diverse educational and political philosophies, revealing the lasting significance of these debates for thinking about religion and political identity in the modern Middle East.

    I tend to suffer from compulsive liberationist tendencies – in other words, I’m a natural-born liberator – so I hope reading this book serves to set you free of anything holding you back from transforming your own life into the most magnificent adventure imaginable. 
    I say I’m a supercharged Taoist because for more than 35 years I’ve been training in Taoist martial arts, qigong, and meditation. Just as it promised in the instruction leaflets, these practices have generated an accumulation of supercharged energy that courses through me and everything I do. This makes my life exciting, endlessly varied, and full of adventure. Using the ancient Taoist wu-wei manifesting methods – focusing on being, not doing, and intending things into existence rather than trying to force them – I’m able to create reality as I wish it to be, almost instantaneously. I say this humbly. Also, by letting the Taoist philosophy underscore everything I think, do, and say, I’ve learned to be flexible in my thinking. Flexibility lets me enjoy all aspects of the ride to the fullest, whether in an up phase or a down one. I feel blessed by all this and want to share my good fortune with you. I want you, in your own style, to be blessed in the same way. 
    I’ve always had a desire to share the wonder of the Tao with others. That’s been my motivation for as long as I can remember. I have an enthusiasm for it, a childlike exuberance that carries me through life in a way that uplifts and cheers me. I’ve found that over the years my exuberance has helped others feel exuberant too. That is how I want this book to leave you feeling, and I want all of Britain and the whole world beyond to feel exuberant too.

    By 1944 the Allies and the Germans knew that the war would soon be over, and that Hitler would lose. What most people don't know is that by 1945, Hitler and his Nazis were developing a "miracle weapon" - what would became known as the world's first atomic weapon. Juan of the Third Reich explores the possibility of Hitler winning WWII through the use of weapons of mass destruction. Would Hitler indeed detonate an atomic weapon to win the war? What would the world do in response? And if Hitler did win the war how would he make the world pay for opposing him? These are questions posed in Juan of the Third Reich and the answers are horrific. Because of Juan, a young teenage boy which accidentally becomes our historian, we know of what really happened during WWII and the alternative future we all could have lived in. We find out how the Roman Catholic Church became a conspirator with the Nazis and crowned Hitler as Emperor of the entire world. We find out the destruction that Hitler unleashed upon the world and that he would have followed through on his Final Solution to the Jewish problem. We also learn of how Hitler conquers the world and how he has absolute rule and dominion over everyone on Earth. Is there hope for anyone?
