8 ADAS, Michael Studies in Comparative World History series Prophets of Rebellion : Millenarian Protest Movements against the European Colonial Order. in dustjacket
University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 1979, ISBN:0807813532 
ADAS, Michael. Prophets of Rebellion : Millenarian Protest Movements against the European Colonial Order. Chapel Hill : The University of North Carolina Press, (1979). Pp (6),[vii]-xxvii,(3),3-243,(1). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. A volume in the Studies in Comparative World History series. "This study provides new approaches to the writing of comparative history and to the analysis of social protest movements, by combining five case studies with other evidence on millennial movements, Michael Adas constructs a framework for the study of the relationship between millenarian expectations, prophetic leaders, and violent social protest. The participants in these rebellions sought to change unacceptablesociocultural systems by extralegal means rather than by constitutional me thods, by force rather than by reform, withdrawal, or passive resistance. Each of the groups mounted a rebellion aimed at the overthrow not only of the political regime but also of the existing sociocultural order. The authorviews these rebellions from the perspectives of both the colonizer incumbe nts and the participants themselves. He analyzes the causes which give riseto these movements of protest gainstst the changes and dislocations engend ered by European conquest and colonization of diverse societies in Africa, Asia, and POceania. He moves from an examination of causation to a consideration of the factors that influenced the mode of protest that was adopted and he discusses the techniques of organization, ritual, and magic that wereused to offset European technological superiority. He pays special attenti on to the careers of the prophets who played central roles in these movements and to the importance of their millenarian visions as catalysts of protests. The work concludes with a discussion of the patterns displayed by the actual revolts, the campaigns of repression launched by the Europeans, and the historical legacy of these movements. The five rebellions that Michael Adas examines in this study are: the revolt led by Prince Dipanagara in theNetnerlands East Indies (1825-1830), the Pai Maire or Hau Hau movement of the Maoris of New Zealand (1864-c. 1867), the Birsa disturbance among the Mundas of Chota Nagpur in east-central India (1890-1900), the Maji Maji rebellions in German East Africa (1905-1906), and the Saya San uprisings in Burma (1930-1932)." (from the dj). Contents : Foreword by Philip D. Curtin; Introduction; 1. Contexts for five rebellions; 2. Causes for revolt: colonialtransformations and relative deprivation; 3. An absence of alternatives; 4 . Prophets and millenarian visions; 5. Toward violence: abortive repressionand the rise of secondary leaders; 6. Mobilisation: symbol and ritual, tal isman and sympathetic magic; 7. Rebellion, suppression and impact; 8. Prophetic rebellion as a type of social protest.

ALLEN, Charles. Kipling Sahib : India and the Making of Rudyard Kipling. (London) : Little, Brown, (2007). First British Edition. Pp (8),ix-xix,(3),1-426,+ 16 pp plates. Text illustrations. Maps. Index. 8vo, brown cloth, red lettering to spine, illustrated endpapers. "This is the story of the forgotten Kipling: 'Ruddy' the troubled youth eager to be accepted by Anglo-Indian society but too arrogant for his own good. A boy terrified of heat, darkness, and disease; a teenager who suffered a series of physical and mental breakdowns and turned to opiates for relief. A young man compelled to take dangerous 'night walks' into the native city of Lahore. This is Ruddy the breaker of taboos: who visited prostitutes; who wrote about love across the racial divide and wives who committed adultery in the hill-stations; who wrote sympathetically about the drunks and vagabonds of the British underclass. But when Kipling used his pen to attack figures in the highest tiers of the establishment, he became too scandalous for British India's comfort. At twenty-three, Ruddy left India to make a name for himself in literary London." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction: 'Seek not to question.' 1. 'Mother of cities': Bombay and a beginning, 1865-7. 2. 'Youth in the eye of thesun': Bombay and expulsion from Eden, 1867-71. 3. 'A double death': Souths ea and Lahore, 1871-7. 4.
