Return Of A King

Return Of A King

From William Dalrymple—award-winning historian, journalist and travel writer—a masterly retelling of what was perhaps the West’s greatest imperial disaster in the East, and an important parable of neocolonial ambition, folly and hubris that has striking relevance to our own time. With access to newly discovered primary sources from archives in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia and India—including a series of previously untranslated Afghan epic poems and biographies—the author gives us the most immediate and comprehensive account yet of the spectacular first battle for Afghanistan: the British invasion of the remote kingdom in 1839. Led by lancers in scarlet cloaks and plumed helmets, and facing little resistance, nearly 20,000 British and East India Company troops poured through the mountain passes from India into Afghanistan in order to reestablish Shah Shuja ul-Mulk on the throne, and as their puppet. But after little more than two years, the Afghans rose in answer to the call for jihad and the country exploded into rebellion. This First Anglo-Afghan War ended with an entire army of what was then the most powerful military nation in the world ambushed and destroyed in snowbound mountain passes by simply equipped Afghan tribesmen. Only one British man made it through. But Dalrymple takes us beyond the bare outline of this infamous battle, and with penetrating, balanced insight illuminates the uncanny similarities between the West’s first disastrous entanglement with Afghanistan and the situation today. He delineates the straightforward facts: Shah Shuja and President Hamid Karzai share the same tribal heritage; the Shah’s principal opponents were the Ghilzai tribe, who today make up the bulk of the Taliban’s foot soldiers; the same cities garrisoned by the British are today garrisoned by foreign troops, attacked from the same rings of hills and high passes from which the British faced attack. Dalryrmple also makes clear the byzantine complexity of Afghanistan’s age-old tribal rivalries, the stranglehold they have on the politics of the nation and the ways in which they ensnared both the British in the nineteenth century and NATO forces in the twenty-first. Informed by the author’s decades-long firsthand knowledge of Afghanistan, and superbly shaped by his hallmark gifts as a narrative historian and his singular eye for the evocation of place and culture, The Return of a King is both the definitive analysis of the First Anglo-Afghan War and a work of stunning topicality.

The Return Of The King

The Return Of The King

The Companions of the Ring have become involved in separate adventures as the quest continues. Aragorn, revealed as the hidden heir of the ancient Kings of the West, joined with the Riders of Rohan against the forces of Isengard, and took part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg. Merry and Pippin, captured by orcs, escaped into Fangorn Forest and there encountered the Ents. Gandalf returned, miraculously, and defeated the evil wizard, Saruman. Meanwhile, Sam and Frodo progressed towards Mordor to destroy the Ring, accompanied by Sméagol - Gollum, still obsessed by his 'preciouss'. After a battle with the giant spider, Shelob, Sam left his master for dead; but Frodo is still alive - in the hands of the orcs. And all the time the armies of the Dark Lord are massing. JRR Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail.

The Return Of The King

The Return Of The King

What does it mean to be a man today? Not a macho nor a whimp, but someone who can be strong and vulnerable, open and assertive, grounded and inspired. Many men are facing this question today. They feel confident to share their innermost feelings with women, but they lack the friendship, safety and nurturing bond with other men. They never had a good example of their fathers, who were mostly absent: physically absent, emotionally absent or spiritually absent. A few generations of men have became lost sons, doing their best but without a clear picture of what it means to be a man This is the story of a book that reached thousands of men in Holland, Belgium and Germany and is now available for the international market. 'The Return of the King' describes the challenges of manhood today and gives solutions for a new and healthy masculinity. At the same time it adresses the role men play in our changing society. It gives a clear and hopeful view of the crises and transformation in the world today. Using initiationstories, like the tales of Parcival, Hamlet or Iron John, but also modern stories like the Matrix, The Titanic and Lord of the Rings, men are guided along the path to manhood. A road less traveled. It challenges men to leave the fortress of their mind and to follow their heart, thus fulfilling an ancient and archetypal theme: the Return of the King...'A powerful book for men.' Penthouse'A book that gives hope and courage.' Flesch'The best and most stimulating book in men's literature: a remarkable work.' Prisma'Ton van der Kroon came and triumphed with his book.' Jonas'A great pleasure to read.' La Nouvel Vie'A real present for the man you love.' Oibibio'A must for men, a relieve for women.' Hilarion'The book reads like an exciting journey.'
