Many people today are entranced by the idea of speaking with the dead or else immersing themselves in vampire tales and wonder. What most people don't realize is how old and revered these stories really are. Within this work Calmet attempts to show where the idea of spirits and apparitions comes from and then within the second part of the main work where the idea and history of the vampire itself comes from. This work simply is not just a history text of ancient religious beliefs but also explains the thinking and beliefs that surrounded the spirits and vampires in the day and age when Calmet wrote this work.

Digul was an internment colony for political prisoners that was established in 1926 in West Papua. This book argues that Digul is the key to understanding Indonesia's colonial governance between the failed communist rebellion of late 1926 and the declaration of independence in 1945, a time when the Dutch regime attempted to impose what they called "rust en orde," or peace and order, on the Indonesian people via the suppression of politics by the police. The political policing regime the Dutch Indies state created, Takashi Shiraishi shows, was simultaneously a success and a failure. While unrest was to some degree put down, the native terrain was never completely pacified, as activists linked up with each other in fluid networks that cut across spatial and ideational boundaries. How did the government deploy political policing to achieve its policy objectives? What were the consequences and challenges for Indonesian activists? How was the government able to fashion its policing apparatus as the most potent instrument to achieve peace and order when the Great Depression hit the Indies, nationalist and communist forces were gaining strength in other places of the world, and war was coming both in Europe and Asia? This book answers those questions and more, breaking new ground for our understanding of the history of the Dutch Indies state in the early part of the twentieth century.

"Phantom World - The Quests" is the second book in a trilogy. It picks up from where the first book "Phantom World" stopped. This sequel tells of the dilemma that King Reiklt faces when his home world, Caredale, is invaded while he must find a mate within a narrow window of time. His mate, and future queen, must have the exact genes to produce an heir that is vital to Caredale's long term security provided by keeping its cloak of invisibility intact. With his people under challenging conditions, his quest for his mate has been fruitless. His last hope is to find the third tribe, another quest that is dauntless considering that its location and existence are based on legends.

Traité sur les apparitions des esprits et sur les vampires ou de revnants. A 1700's treatise surfaced two centuries ago regarding the supernatural and scientific phenomenon that plagued Europe in an era when Magic, witchcraft, instances of haunting, and even cases of vampires were recorded in judicial and imperial documentation. It was during the age of reason when a Black Monk from the Benedictine Order of the 18th century, penned a work that would become one of the most influential and controversial works of his time. A plethora of cases regarding events in the supernatural had plagued mankind with fear and mystery throughout history, many inhabitants to the regions of Europe came under an epidemic of social hysteria which stemmed from reports of corpses rising from their graves, killing and sucking the blood of victims inhabiting small villages or visitations and the haunting of ghosts, evil spirits and demons. The Black Monk, Abbot Don Augustin Calmet tasked himself with the study of these real and historically documented reports for the purpose of providing the public with the rules to determine a claim's legitimacy through philosophical reasoning of religious and scientific examination that was approved by the King of France in 1746. This work provides an in-depth look into the history of most superstitions, mythologies, and the analysis of events depicted in the ancient texts of various religions and historically renowned cases. Calmet lays out the rules for determining the fraudulence of purported claims and distinguishes them from what may soundly be considered real at the time, providing a "how to" manual when dealing with or investigating occult matters in witchcraft, ghosts, vampires and demonic possessions. This new edition includes translations from the French and Italian works that are being published for the first time! Including the missing letters, detailed notes, definitions, and translations of Latin, Italian and French phrases quotes and citations.

Toby Riester is sixteen, gay, and searching for his first boyfriend. He discovers many potential candidates-Orlando, a cute sixteen-year-old Hispanic boy who works with Toby at the Phantom World amusement park-C.T., a blond, seventeen-year-old who is obviously gay-and Spike, a well-built sixteen-year-old from the Internet. Each boy has his own seductive qualities and each is more than his seems, but one of them is far more dangerous than Toby ever guessed. Orlando finds a girlfriend at Phantom World, but that's only the beginning of his story. When he meets his girlfriend's gorgeous twin brother, Kerry, his world is turned upside down. Mackenzie Riester is the athletic younger brother of Toby. He has little respect for his queer big brother and joins with his newfound friend, Billy, in playing an elaborate practical joke on Toby that becomes perilous. Phantom World is the story of three very different boys-their triumphs, heartaches, and their search for love and acceptance.
