JUNGLE STORIES: From the Fields of South Dakota to the Jungles of Burma details the remarkable journey of Scotland, South Dakota resident Delmar Strunk, who improbably became part of the famed “Merrill’s Marauders” fighting unit in Southeast Asia during World War II. Strunk was born into the “Roaring Twenties,” a period of great prosperity in America, but quickly learned the plights and struggles of the Great Depression after the stock market crash of 1929. Like most men of his generation, Delmar entered the service to fight for his country, becoming a soldier in the U.S. Army. After serving admirably in the China-Burma-India Theater, Strunk returned home to create a life for himself. Delmar forged a successful farming business following the war and even realized the time-honored tradition of working hand in hand with his son on the farm. Into retirement, Strunk entrenched himself as a pillar of the community and participated in a multitude of activities, including serving as commander of the local VFW. Strunk’s is a story of living the true “American Dream,” persevering through the tough times and enjoying the good. JUNGLE STORIES encapsulates the life of Delmar Strunk, from the Fields of South Dakota to the Jungles of Burma and beyond.

In the Ancient World the fundamental institutions of Property, Patriarchy and Slavery were never questioned. It was self-evident that any society that abandoned these essential features of human civilisation would surely fall into chaos. Except that there was one society which broke every one of these rules. This volume outlines the establishment of Terrapulchra. It examines what the main actors were thinking at the time, what they did and why they did it. In desperation they invented alternative social paradigms that were scandalous by any criteria accepted at the time. Yet every step along the way seemed unavoidable and inevitable at the time. What else could they have done in those circumstances? These innovations proved so successful that they changed the rest of the world irrevocably.

This volume is a study of the career of Robert Lansing, Woodrow Wilson’s Secretary of State from 1915 to 1920. Holding this office during the neutrality period, America’s entry into World War I, and the peace negotiations that followed, his was an important position at a critical juncture in American history. While many historians have dismissed Lansing’s contributions as insubstantial, this author believes otherwise. This work will show that in nudging a reluctant president toward war with Germany Lansing was persuasive indeed. His most important contributions, however, came after Wilson returned to the United States in 1919 and became incapacitated during the fight for ratification of the Treaty of Versailles. In the months that followed Lansing took the position of leadership in the Cabinet, holding important meetings on all of the issues of the day and reassuring the nation that the Executive branch of government still functioned. He also helped to resolve critical Mexican and Russian issues. Finally, and most importantly during this period, Lansing was in league with the strong reservations in attempting to force Wilson to accept modifications to the Treaty as a condition for ratification. In this regard he provided the Republican opposition with important information regarding compromises made at Paris and the feelings of both himself and other Commissioners as to flaws in the Treaty. Throughout his career Lansing was a strong proponent of his views on the key issues of the day. Sadly when faced with a President of equally strong views, often different from his own, Lansing resorted to indirection, deception and ultimately disloyalty in attempting to achieve his objectives. In the end Lansing’s many positive contributions were diminished by the actions of his final days.

Harvey Devoe (1828-1914) farmed most of his life, and kept a diary for one significant year of that life, 1861. The diary, transcribed here in its entirety, gives a day-by-day view of the life and hard work of a mid nineteenth entury farmer, and the coming of a national tragedy. Illustrated with family pictures and annotated for a clearer view, Devoe’s words are both humorous and sarcastic, and although brief, give a unique look into a vanished world.

In 1948, the issue of the division of Palestine was under discussion in the Security Council. At the wishes of the Arab states and also Huzur (Khalifa tul Masseh II), they instructed respected Chaudhry Mohammad Zafarullah Khan to present the case of Palestine. So he strongly presented and pleaded the Palestinian cause, and he presented the Arab case. The Arab delegations thanked Huzoor (Khalifa tul Masih II) by sending a telegram and wrote, “We have been greatly relieved. We hope that this will immensely support our demands” (Al-Fazal, November 8, 1947). Huzoor’s (Khalifa tul Masseh II) instruction to Hazrat Chaudry Sahib to stay on in New York and the gratitude of Arab delegations show that Huzoor was a source of peace, blessing, and mercy for all nations of the world. The Statesman (Delhi) dated October 8, 1947, editorially observes: “Sir Mohammad Zafarullah Khan voiced in the counsels of the United Nations on a burning topic of world-wide significance when leader of this country’s delegation, Mohammad Zafarullah Khan, addressed the United Nations Palestine Committee at Lake Success on Tuesday. It was a telling speech which tore into shreds the specious pleas put forward by the advocates of the partition of Palestine. Chaudhry Zafarullah did not merely indulge in rhetoric when he described the partition plan as `physically and geographically a monstrosity.’”

West Point is a geographical location that was of critical importance during the Revolutionary War, the site of our nation’s first military academy, and the commissioning source of thousands of Army, Army Air Corps, Air Force, and even some Navy and Marine Corps officers who have led our nation’s young men, and now women, in battle since the Academy’s founding on March 16, 1802 by President Thomas Jefferson. This volume contains a very selective military history of the United States that focuses on the Revolutionary War and the contributions of West Point graduates to subsequent wars, but with an emphasis on some of the lesser known persons and events of the past 250 years or so. It also touches upon many of the customs and traditions of the West Point experience. Many chapters include the stories of unsung or forgotten heroes and heroines. Men like John Stark, Daniel Morgan, Eleazer Derby Wood, Benjamin L.E. Bonneville, Oliver Otis Howard, Henry Ossian Flipper, Calvin Pearl Titus, Charles Young, Norman D. Cota, and Donald W. Holleder plus women like the Warner sisters, Laura Walker, and Emily Perez. One of the final chapters, however, deals with—in the kindest sense of the term—a few rogues of West Point like Edgar Allan Poe, James McNeil Whistler, Hugh S. Johnson, and The Mole.

This volume, the second of a three-part documentary, continues the history of the Guyana-Venezuela border issue from where Volume One left off. It describes Venezuela’s dissatisfaction over the territorial and boundary award issued in 1899 by the international arbitral tribunal, subsequently leading to that country’s government unilaterally declaring it in 1962 as being “null and void.” The volume goes on to examine the evolved political events, including the sporadic Venezuelan infringements of Guyana’s territorial integrity and the pursuit of diplomacy by both countries, resulting eventually in 1966 to a formal agreement at Geneva aimed at seeking a practical settlement of the “controversy” arising from Venezuela’s contention of the nullity of the arbitral award. A subsidiary protocol to suspend the search for a settlement was signed in Port of Spain in 1970, but the succeeding twelve-year period was characterized by a succession of bilateral political interplay, resulting in Venezuela’s decision to terminate this pact in 1982.
