インド北部ジャムー・カシミール州の東にザンスカールと呼ばれる地域がある。2016年現在、車両道路未開通の最奥の地。文化的にはチベット文化圏の中にあって、ラダック地域と同じくチベット文化が無傷のまま残存していると言われている。この地域の大多数の人々は徒歩か馬しか移動手段はなく、生活は極めて質素で素朴そのもの。しかも冬期は雪に閉ざされ、約5か月間にわたって外界との接触が困難となる地域もある。このような不便な地域は地球上に稀となりつつあるが、この不便さがこの地域を文明の汚染から護ってきたともいえよう。<br /> 地球上には世界で最も美しいと云われる地域がいくつかあるが、ザンスカールもそのひとつである。これはそのザンスカール地域の写真集で、撮影2016年、掲載写真421枚。<br /> There is an area called Zanskar in eastern Jammu-Kashmir state of northern India. As of 2016, it is the innnermost remote area without motorable road access yet. Culturally, Zanskar belongs to Tibetan cultural zone and many people say that Tibetan culture survives in Zanskar unhurt as well as in Ladakh. Most of the people in this area have no means to move around but by foot or by horse. Their way of life is very frugal and simple itself. Moreover, some villages in this area are closed from outside world by heavy snow for about five months in winter season. Such inconvenient places are getting rare on the earth, but it is another fact that the very inconvenience has protected this area from negative influence of civilization.<br /> There are several places on the earth which some people call the most beautiful place in the world. Zanskar is the one of them. This photo-book is all about the Zanskar area with 421 photos taken in 2016.

My Mother’s Kitchen is an enchanting place filled with promise, change and good food. If the weathered walls of this magical room could talk they would tell the story of Meena and her childhood life. Each chapter is a slice in her young life and depicts her spunk and youthful spirit. A visit to the local Fruit and Flower Show becomes an adventure as told by Meena. Her distress at finding out about her aunt’s dark secret or her joy of making a new friend are all told in her naïve, yet pure voice. Her mother is a central character in her life and it is no wonder that the kitchen is a special place of healing and rejuvenation, not only for Meena but for other characters like Kashi and Ayah.

Route 312 is the Chinese Route 66. It flows three thousand miles from east to west, passing through the factory towns of the coastal areas, through the rural heart of China, then up into the Gobi Desert, where it merges with the Old Silk Road. The highway witnesses every part of the social and economic revolution that is turning China upside down.<br /><br />In this utterly surprising and deeply personal book, acclaimed National Public Radio reporter Rob Gifford, a fluent Mandarin speaker, takes the dramatic journey along Route 312 from its start in the boomtown of Shanghai to its end on the border with Kazakhstan. Gifford reveals the rich mosaic of modern Chinese life in all its contradictions, as he poses the crucial questions that all of us are asking about China: Will it really be the next global superpower? Is it as solid and as powerful as it looks from the outside? And who are the ordinary Chinese people, to whom the twenty-first century is supposed to belong? <br /><br />Gifford is not alone on his journey. The largest migration in human history is taking place along highways such as Route 312, as tens of millions of people leave their homes in search of work. He sees signs of the booming urban economy everywhere, but he also uncovers many of the country’s frailties, and some of the deep-seated problems that could derail China’s rise. <br /><br />The whole compelling adventure is told through the cast of colorful characters Gifford meets: garrulous talk-show hosts and ambitious yuppies, impoverished peasants and tragic prostitutes, cell-phone salesmen, AIDS patients, and Tibetan monks. He rides with members of a Shanghai jeep club, hitchhikes across the Gobi desert, and sings karaoke with migrant workers at truck stops along the way.<br /><br />As he recounts his travels along Route 312, Rob Gifford gives a face to what has historically, for Westerners, been a faceless country and breathes life into a nation that is so often reduced to economic statistics. Finally, he sounds a warning that all is not well in the Chinese heartlands, that serious problems lie ahead, and that the future of the West has become inextricably linked with the fate of 1.3 billion Chinese people.<br /><br />“Informative, delightful, and powerfully moving . . . Rob Gifford’s acute powers of observation, his sense of humor and adventure, and his determination to explore the wrenching dilemmas of China’s explosive development open readers’ eyes and reward their minds.”<br /> –Robert A. Kapp, president, U.S.-China Business Council, 1994-2004<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<h1>BALI IS MAGICAL! - beautiful, quiet, relaxed, joyful and inspiring…</h1><br /><br />That is if you get away from the tourist crowds in the South and begin to explore the "real" Bali and her wonders….<br /><br /><p></p><h2>Exploring the “Real” Bali</h2><br /><br /><b>The South East</b> around <i>Candidasa</i> and the diving paradise of <i>Amed</i>. The sleepy fishing villages along the <b>East Coast</b> with lush palm tree vegetation. You become relaxed just looking at it....<br /><br /><b>The North Coast</b> with many little gems to visit and a gorgeous countryside, incl. a pearl farm that employs only women, an award winning coral restoration project recognized by the United Nations, a winery, turtle and bee conservation projects and so much more....<br /><br /><b>The West Bali National Park</b> inviting to hiking, kayaking, and the remote diving/snorkeling island of <i>Menjangan</i>. A bird watcher's paradise, lush with wildlife and unusual fauna.<br /><br /><b>The rugged West Coast</b>, a surfer's paradise, with quiet, chill villages like <i>Medewi</i> - the way Bali used to be before tourism overran the South.<br /><br />And, of course, the spectacular volcanic mountain ranges in the <b>Inland regions</b> with massive lakes, luscious rain forest and gorgeous rice terraces - absolutely breath taking!<br /><br /><h2>Bali Indonesia will Enchant you</h2><br /><br />Wherever you go, Bali will enchant and inspire you with stunning vistas, soaring heights, and a vibe just quiet and relaxed - to get away from it all....<br /><br />Sadly most visitors never get to see that side of Bali and instead spend all their time on overcrowded beaches, parties and shopping malls in the South - Kuta, Seminyak or Sanur.<br /><br />If you want to see the "real" Bali and all her magnificent wonders, this book will be for you.<br /><br /><i>Zen Traveller BALI</i> covers <b>logistical and planning help</b>, so you know what to expect on your first visit to Bali. Communication, visa, currency/banking, accommodation, transportation, wifi/mobile usage and much more will be covered in Chapter 1.<br /><br />Next follows <i>Ubud</i>, the cultural centre of Bali, and still charming and lovely, despite heavy tourism influx.<br /><br /><i>Want to know where experienced Bali travelers go instead? - Ubud without the crowds?</i> - or where you can find an organic restaurant in the midst of rice fields with beautiful views and healthy, delicious food? The book will tell you.<br /><br />From Ubud we travel around the East and North coast and inland into the mountains - even into Java for the great volcanoes.<br /><br /><br /><h2>A Quick Guide…</h2><br /><br /><i>Zen Traveller BALI</i> is a quick guide, not an in-depth 500 page travel guide book a la Lonely Planet, Fodors and Frommers. It does not contain extensive lists of tour companies or accommodations for each area, tough a few are mentioned throughout the book based on the personal experiences of the author.<br /><br />Instead, this Bali guide from the <i>Zen Traveller</i> series by bestselling travel writer and blogger Gundi Gabrielle, will give you a good overview over the different regions with things to do along the way, practical logistical information and tips on where to get away from it all....<br /><br /><br /><h2>Are you ready?</h2><br /><br />Bali Reiseführer

<p>‘Could you show me a djinn?’ I asked. ‘Certainly,’ replied the Sufi. ‘But you would run away.’</p><p>From the author of the Samuel Johnson Prize-shortlisted ‘The Return of a King’, this is William Dalrymple’s captivating memoir of a year spent in Delhi, a city watched over and protected by the mischievous invisible djinns.

<b>South Korea's amazing rise from the ashes: the inside story of an economic, political, and cultural phenomenon</b> <br /><br />Long overshadowed by Japan and China, South Korea is a small country that happens to be one of the great national success stories of the postwar period. From a failed state with no democratic tradition, ruined and partitioned by war, and sapped by a half-century of colonial rule, South Korea transformed itself in just fifty years into an economic powerhouse and a democracy that serves as a model for other countries. With no natural resources and a tradition of authoritarian rule, Korea managed to accomplish a second Asian miracle. <br /><br />Daniel Tudor is a journalist who has lived in and written about Korea for almost a decade. In <I>Korea: The Impossible Country</I>, Tudor examines Korea's cultural foundations; the Korean character; the public sphere in politics, business, and the workplace as well as the family, dating, and marriage. In doing so, he touches on topics as diverse as shamanism, clan-ism, the dilemma posed by North Korea, the myths about doing business in Korea, the Koreans' renowned hard-partying ethos, and why the infatuation with learning English is now causing huge social problems. <br /><br />South Korea has undergone two miracles at once: economic development and complete democratization. The question now is, will it become as some see Japan, a rich yet aging society, devoid of energy and momentum? Or will the dynamism of Korean society and its willingness to change—as well as the opportunity it has now to welcome outsiders into its fold—enable it to experience a third miracle that will propel it into the ranks of the world's leading nations in terms of human culture, democracy, and wealth? <br /><br />More than just one journalist's account, <i>Korea: The Impossible Country</i> also draws on interviews with many of the people who made South Korea what it is today. These include:<br /><ul><li> Choi Min-sik, the star of "Old Boy".</li><li> Park Won-soon, Mayor of Seoul.</li><li> Soyeon Yi, Korea's first astronaut Hong Myung-bo, legendary captain of Korea's 2002 FIFA World Cup team.</li><li> Shin Joong-hyun, the 'Godfather of Korean Rock'.</li><li> Ko Un, poet.</li><li> Hong Seok-cheon, restaurateur, and the first Korean celebrity to 'come out'.</li></ul><br />And many more, including a former advisor to President Park Chung-hee; a Shaman priestess ('mudang'); the boss of Korea's largest matchmaking agency; a 'room salon' hostess; an architect; as well as chefs, musicians, academics, entrepreneurs, homemakers, and chaebol conglomerate employees.
