The Tale of the Missing Man

The Tale of the Missing Man

Winner of the Global Humanities Translation Prize The Tale of the Missing Man (Dastan-e Lapata) is a milestone in Indo-Muslim literature.

Author: Manzoor Ahtesham

Winner of the Global Humanities Translation Prize The Tale of the Missing Man (Dastan-e Lapata) is a milestone in Indo-Muslim literature. A refreshingly playful novel, it explores modern Muslim life in the wake of the 1947 partition of India and Pakistan. Zamir Ahmad Khan suffers from a mix of alienation, guilt, and postmodern anxiety that defies diagnosis. His wife abandons him to his reflections about his childhood, writing, ill-fated affairs, and his hometown, Bhopal, as he attempts to unravel the lies that brought him to his current state (while weaving new ones). A novel of a heroic quest gone awry, The Tale of the Missing Man artfully twists the conventions of the Urdu romance, or dastan, tradition, where heroes chase brave exploits that are invariably rewarded by love. The hero of Ahtesham’s tale, living in the fast-changing city of Bhopal during the 1970s and ’80s, suffers an identity crisis of epic proportions: he is lost, missing, and unknown both to himself and to others. The result is a twofold quest in which the fate of protagonist and writer become inextricably and ironically linked. The lost hero sets out in search of himself, while the author goes in search of the lost hero, his fictionalized alter ego. New York magazine cited the book as one of “the world's best untranslated novels.” In addition to raising important questions about Muslim identity, Ahtesham offers a very funny and thoroughly self-reflective commentary on the modern author’s difficulties in writing autobiography. The Global Humanities Translation Prize is awarded annually to a previously unpublished translation that strikes the delicate balance between scholarly rigor, aesthetic grace, and general readability, as judged by a rotating committee of Northwestern faculty, distinguished international scholars, writers, and public intellectuals. The Prize is organized by the Global Humanities Initiative, which is jointly supported by Northwestern University’s Buffett Institute for Global Studies and Kaplan Institute for the Humanities.

The thesis of this study is that the development of the MIA issue has been, and continues to be, inimical to the best interests of the United States, the missing men, and their families. It is clear that the Government has a responsibility to both the men and their families. Combat personnel should be assured that their families will not be placed in a limbo status for years should their death be undocumented. In the Vietnam war, the U.S. Government prolonged the grief of the MIA family, while substantially increasing the benefits paid to the MIA wife compared to the widow. These inequities do not cancel each other out, nor is either one justified. The matter of the missing men is an issue over which this government has little control, and as such, reduces American flexibility in dealing with Vietnam. Also, by creating expectations and demands that could never be met, the United States has caused a bitterness toward the government by a small but significant number of American citizens. Finally, in the course of attempting to resolve this issue, a U.S. President promised an economic commitment that he knew could not be met. This action unnecessarily complicated future American-Vietnamese relationships, while reducing the stature of the Presidency and the credibility of American promises.

The matter of American servicemen missing in action (MIA) in Southeast Asia is a poignant and tragic issue resulting from the United States involvement in the Vietnam War. The problem of an adequate MIA accounting remains a principal point of contention between this country and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, as well as a discordant issue separating the United States Government and a small but determined group of its citizens - some of the MIA families. One of the goals of the National Defense University is to provide an opportunity for our students and faculty to contribute to the public dialogue on a broad range of national security issues. Captain Clarke prepared this carefully researched study while a resident student at The National War College during the 1977-78 academic year, and we are pleased to make it available through publication for a wider audience. The author describes the process of determination of MIA status, the political and psychological considerations that impacted on that process, and the development of the MIA question as an example of the intersection of domestic and international considerations impacting on policy. He discusses the manner in which the Vietnamese have attempted to employ this contentious issue for their own purposes, and analyzes the differing approaches taken by Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Carter toward resolving the problem. By explaining how this painful impasse evolved, Captain Clarke's study not only contributes to public understanding of a sensitive and complex issue but also assists future policymakers in avoiding a repetition of this or similar predicaments.

You were the master of the machine...you were an airman.' Flying Officer Bob Crawford Len Waters was a Kamilaroi man.

The missing man, Robert Levinson, appeared in pictures dressed like a Guantánamo prisoner and pleaded in a video for help from the United States.

In late 2013, Americans were shocked to learn that a former FBI agent turned private investigator who disappeared in Iran in 2007 was there on a mission for the CIA. The missing man, Robert Levinson, appeared in pictures dressed like a Guantánamo prisoner and pleaded in a video for help from the United States. Barry Meier, an award-winning investigative reporter for The New York Times, draws on years of interviews and never-before-disclosed CIA files to weave together a riveting narrative of the ex-agent's journey to Iran and the hunt to rescue him. The result is an extraordinary tale about the shadowlands between crime, business, espionage, and the law, where secrets are currency and betrayal is commonplace. Its colorful cast includes CIA operatives, Russian oligarchs, arms dealers, White House officials, gangsters, private eyes, FBI agents, journalists, and a fugitive American terrorist and assassin. Missing Man is a fast-paced story that moves through exotic locales and is set against the backdrop of the twilight war between the United States and Iran, one in which hostages are used as political pawns. Filled with stunning revelations, it chronicles a family's ongoing search for answers and one man's desperate struggle to keep his hand in the game.

From the author of Minor Characters, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award – an “intricate and compelling” (O, The Oprah Magazine) memoir that chronicles her childhood and her two ill-fated marriages Joyce Johnson’s classic memoir of growing up female in the 1950s, Minor Characters, was one of the initiators of an important new genre: the personal story of a minor player on history’s stage. In Missing Men, a memoir that tells her mother’s story as well as her own, Johnson constructs an equally unique self-portrait as she examines, from a woman’s perspective, the far-reaching reverberations of fatherlessness. Telling a story that has "shaped itself around absences," Missing Men presents us with the arc and flavor of a unique New York life—from the author’s adventures as a Broadway stage child to her fateful encounters with the two fatherless artists she marries. Joyce Johnson’s voice has never been more compelling.

Murder of a Missing Man, first published in 1934 as a Red Badge Book, is a ‘golden-age’ murder mystery, set largely aboard a passenger train traveling across southwestern America. From the dustjacket: “In this new mystery, the author develops an ingenious and original case in which the identity of the victim is as much a mystery as the identity of the murderer. At the outset, the reader is introduced to a highly dramatic tragedy in a fashionable New York hotel. Pierre Leland, notorious playboy and bon vivant, is murdered. The circumstances of the crime are revealed. Next the scene shifts to a Pullman coach of a transcontinental express, bound across the Texas deserts to California. Another crime, brutal and sinister, is committed. What is the connection between these two? Who are the people on this train, isolated from police machinery? Characteristic of this popular author, the incidents of this swift-moving story are cleverly and vividly drawn. There is a wealth of humor and satire in the depiction of the varied individuals that find themselves drawn together on that ill-fated Pullman car. There is, too, an abundance of thrills and a professionally neat puzzle to keep the reader constantly guessing.”
