The Padjanaks

In this book I demonstrate that the Padjanaks, whatever the spelling of the name (Badjanaks, Patzinaks, Pechenegs, etc.), were, in the main, Huns, but were known as White Huns, and that the Padjanaks were, in fact, the Kushans.

“V.G. Vasilievsky, who was the first among historians to make clear the historical significance of the Patzinaks [Padjanaks], wrote in 1872 concerning their advance into Byzantine territory: ‘This event, which has escaped the attention of all modern historical works, had enormous significance for the history of humanity.  In its consequences it was almost as important as the crossing of the Danube by the western Goths, which initiated the so-called migration of nations.’” — Alexander A. Vasiliev 


The Kangar

This book is not about the dagger, or short sword, called khangar, or khanjar, a choice weapon for many men throughout the ages, but about the ancient tribe or people whose name for themselves – Kangar – means sword- or dagger-bearer, and became the name for the dagger itself. That is to say, the name of the dagger, wherever the khangar or khanjar or handžar is used, whether in Iraq, Oman, Yemen, Egypt, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Central Asia, or India, comes from the name of the people – the Kangar. The Kangar were, or rather are, aborigines of India, and they are one of the most ancient peoples in the world, with a history spanning many thousands of years and involving numerous countries. Of all the Kangar, the most well known lived in southern Mesopotamia in antiquity.  We call them Sumerians.

This book is, in the main, not a history proper, but an argument, or series of arguments, intended to demonstrate, in so far as it is possible, that the Sumerians were, in fact, the Kangar.
