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 The Global Humanities Translation Prize is awarded annually to a previously unpublished translation that strikes the delicate balance between scholarly rigor, aesthetic grace, and general readability, as judged by a rotating committee of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 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.

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.

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

The war over, it should have been easy. He believed he could 'live on both sides of the fence' and be part of Australia's emerging commercial airline industry. He had, after all, broken through the 'black ceiling' once before. Above all, he just wanted to fly. Instead, he became a missing man in Australia's wartime flying history.

Towards the end of a busy day, Inspector Walter Darriteau returns to his workstation. There was a neatly-written pink notelet on his desk. Please ring Mrs Susan Woodhams, and a local number. He picks up the phone and pokes in the digits. After three rings, a woman answers. 'There's something preying on my mind, ' she says, 'and it has been for more than twenty years.' 'Go on, ' says Walter, imagining it was something and nothing. 'Almost a quarter of a century ago, I murdered my husband.' There was a brief silence before she spoke again. She wanted Walter to call at her apartment at 10am the following morning and she'll tell him about it, but gives him a warning. 'Come alone or I won't say a thing.' Walter warns her of the consequences of wasting police time, but seems satisfied and interested, and agrees to call. She coughs up the address and abruptly rings off. Could the woman be serious? Or maybe she's lonely and wants male company. Or could she be setting him up? Either way, Walter will keep the appointment. Later on, he can't stop imagining how she might have done the deed. Poison in the tea? Knife in the back? Pushed him down the stairs. Run him over in the garage? Eaten him? Who knows? It wouldn't be the first time. There were plenty of choices, and whichever it was, it would be fun finding out. The case of "The Missing Man" was open, an Inspector Walter Darriteau novella, and like all the others, set in and around the ancient city of Chester in the north-west of England.
