    Early Migration and Trade Routes

    Origin of Man in Southeast Asia 1―Early Migration and Trade Routes is a work about the early evolution of the various peoples in the area and our present knowledge about the early migration routes out of Africa into Asia and across the continent to such far lands as Australia and the many islands of the South Pacific.

    This volume highlights the distribution of peoples from the Sunda Shelf (‘out of Sundaland’ migration theory) after the last Ice Age across mainland Southeast Asia and southern China and explains the migration route via Taiwan (‘out of Taiwan’ migration theory) into mainland China.

    It also unveils the establishment of the early cultures and industries, which developed across both mainland and maritime Southeast Asia and adjoining China from the Neolithic Era to the first centuries of our Common Era and explains the Nusantao Maritime Trading and Communication Network (or NMTCN) concept, an early well organized trading and transportation interconnection between the mainland and the many islands across maritime Southeast Asia and the South Pacific.

  • Sharia

    $3.99$19.99 Bradbury, Ray

    $3.99$19.99

    A fascinating look at what life is like living under Sharia law, the Islamic code of conduct.

    Bradbury has seen it first hand and suffered at the hands of it. He tells it as it is and what to expect.

    Do you know what Sharia law is?

    Have you ever considered what it would be like to live under Sharia law? If not, you should.

    One only has to look at the statistics showing the rise of Islam in the world today to see it is only a matter of time before Sharia comes to us all. There is no stopping it. In the future, it will be mandatory for many Western countries, if not all. Sceptics can disagree and look past the politicians who have paved the way for its implementation, but it will happen.

    But don’t be afraid. Some people are happy with it. They feel it is justified because it does have its good points—it cleanses the soul.

    In Cambodia, Anlong Veng the last stronghold of the Khmer, the differences between a country, Cambodia under totalitarian rule and the renewed vigor of life are under the magnifying glass as the author tries to find out what moved the leaders of the brutal revolution to exterminate so many of its own people. Into the heart of its last stronghold Anlong Veng he finds friendly and amicable people who talk openly.
    The connection of the Cambodian people with their glorious past, Angkor Wat Complex, he also puts under the microscope in an effort to find out if that past anchored in the psyche of its people provided the fertile ground for such extraordinary contemporary out of human bounds, no limits, oppression; this in the light of the author’s first encounter with fleeing Cambodians to Thailand where he met them by the thousands and was moved to tears more than three decades ago.
