CHI le: The Great Transformation
₱ 2,167.00
Galleon

Chile is frequently cited as a remarkable success story of neoliberal economic restructuring. In fact, countries around the world are encouraged to follow the Chilean model so that they can reap the extraordinary benefits of rapid growth and expanding export markets associated with the drastic economic reform in Chile. But the Chilean experience is extremely complicated and contradictory. The international discussion on economic restructuring in Latin America often runs on two tracks: one dominated by consultants and scholars from the English-speaking world and another in which Latin Americans talk to each other. This book attempts to bridge the gap. Two outstanding Chilean scholars and activists present an original interpretation of the Chilean experience. They cut through the rhetoric surrounding "the Chilean miracle" and provide an integrated analysis of the process of socioeconomic and political change that transformed their country between 1970 and 1990. In so doing, they discover not only a neoliberal revolution, but a capitalist revolution with roots far deeper than the Pinochet reforms. The book provides a valuable resource for people around the world who hope to understand the principal "success story" of Latin American adjustment. Copublished with the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development.

CHI natown, New York: Labor and Politics, 1930-1950
₱ 1,649.00
Galleon

Now back in print, the groundbreaking history of the rise and fall of labor movements in New York's Chinatown, updated with a new introduction. Focusing primarily on New York City's Chinatown in the 1930s and '40s, but looking back to the 1840's arrival of Chinese immigrants in America, Peter Kwong documents the turbulent history of Chinese labor in America in a groundbreaking book now available again. Kwong powerfully demonstrates how, excluded from craft unions and gradually driven into urban ghettos, the Chinese settled into a narrow range of jobs, where the merchant elite was able to control the workforce. But in the 1930s, as more industrial jobs became available, new organizations, aided by labor and leftist groups, arose to challenge the existing power structure. In the 1950s, though, as the political climate in the US changed, integration was halted and traditional associations reasserted their rule. Hailed as a "fascinating, pioneering study" by Library Journal when it was first published, this meticulous and elegant book provides crucial insight into the balance of forces in Chinatown, as well as the nature and extent of discrimination against the Chinese within the United States. This edition also includes a new introduction by the author about why a book written twenty years ago is still relevant today.

CHI ld of the Morning: A Novel (Rediscovered Classics)
₱ 1,768.00
Galleon

Thirty-five centuries ago the sun had a daughter: Hatshepsut. Youngest daughter of the Pharaoh, she was a lithe and magical child. But when her older sister died, it became her duty to purify the dynasty’s bloodline. She was to wed Thothmes, her father’s illegitimate son, who was heir to the throne. But fearing his son’s incompetence, Hatshepsut’s father came to her with startling news. She was to be Pharaoh, ruler of the greatest empire the world had ever known--provided, of course, that the unprecedented ascension by a woman did not inspire the priests to treason or instill in her half-brother and future consort sufficient hatred to have her put to death. This is the premise for Child of the Morning, based closely on the historical facts. Hatshepsut assumed the throne at the age of fifteen and ruled brilliantly for more than two decades. Her achievements were immortalized on the walls of her magnificent temple at Deir el-Bahri, built by her architect and lover, Senmut. Sensuous and evocative, Child of the Morning is the story of one of history’s most remarkable women.

CHI ldren's Past Lives: How Past Life Memories Affect Your ld
₱ 952.00
Galleon

Has your child lived before? In this fascinating, controversial, and groundbreaking book, Carol Bowman reveals overwhelming evidence of past life memories in children. Not only are such experiences real, they are far more common than most people realize. Bowman's extraordinary investigation was sparked when her young son, Chase, described his own past-life death on a Civil War battlefield--an account so accurate it was authenticated by an expert historian. Even more astonishing, Chase's chronic eczema and phobia of loud noises completely disappeared after he had the memory. Inspired by Chase's dramatic healing, Bowman compiled dozens of cases and wrote this comprehensive study to explain how very young children remember their past lives, spontaneously and naturally. In Children's Past Lives, she tells how to distinguish between a true past life memory and a fantasy, offers practical advice to parents on how to respond to a past life memory, and shows how to foster the spiritual and healing benefits of these experiences. Perhaps the most moving, convincing, and best-documented evidence yet for life after death, Children's Past Lives will stand alongside the classics of Betty J. Eadie, Raymond Moody, and Brian Weiss in its power to comfort, uplift, and transform our thinking about life after death

CHI na Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture
₱ 2,160.00

The spectacular Beijing Olympics of 2008 signalled China’s arrival as a superpower on the world stage. The global economic crisis that followed in 2008–9 saw it become banker to the West, poised to eclipse the United States. This new edition of Kathy Flower’s bestselling Culture Smart! China has been revised and updated by the author to take on board the transformation in China’s fortunes and the changing face of Chinese society. As China flexes its economic and political muscle abroad, ordinary people feel a new pride in their country’s achievements. The embrace of free-market capitalism by the communist state has spread prosperity to many, with fortunes being made by some. But it has created losers as well as winners, particularly in the countryside. Gone is the security of the state’s “iron rice bowl” provision for life, and unemployment or dispossession have opened up social gaps that could threaten its stability. For the moment the rumbling discontent is below the radar and under control, and for millions the Chinese virtues of enterprise, industry, and patience are paying handsome dividends. This edition of Culture Smart! China is completely revised making it the indispensable visitors’ guide to the complexities of a rapidly changing world power whose ancient culture and traditions owe little to the West.

CHI nese Space Policy: A Study in Domestic and International Politics (Space Power and Politics)
₱ 4,512.00
Galleon

This volume explains the beginnings and expansion of China's space program, analyzing how China is now able to hold such ambitions and how the interaction between technology, politics and economics has influenced the Chinese space program. It opens by tracing out the earlier development of the space program and identifying the successes and problems that plagued this initial effort, later focusing upon its development over the past decade and into the future. As China is now able to reach into outer space with its machines and, since 2003, with its humans, the authors examine how this move from a non-participant status to a state operating at the highest level of space activities has confirmed its potential place as the new economic and military superpower of the twenty-first century. They also demonstrate how recent successes mean that China is now confronted by an issue previously encountered by other space ‘powers’, such as the United States and the former Soviet Union: what is the value of the space program, given its high costs and likelihood of dramatic failure? Chinese Space Policy will be of great interest to students of space studies, Chinese politics, security studies, and international relations in general.

These stories are based on actual incidents and places I experienced while I was working as a teacher and as an assistant principal in the Bronx, New York in the 1970’s and 1980’s. They are composites and not about one child, family or situation. Names of individuals and some places have been altered. Dialogue has been imagined, or reconstructed from memory of words spoken by children in various settings, included here often to illuminate the desperation of a character’s unspoken feelings. I wanted to tell these stories because we read graphic tales about the ex-offender and what he and his family suffer. We seldom hear of the effect of an incarceration on the psyche of his children, what they went through when a parent went missing, how their daily interaction with life was disrupted by the loss of Mom or Dad, how they made their way through adolescence, stumbling, grasping for guideposts no matter how inadequate or detrimental. Or the psychological reasons why child followed parent into a life of crime.

CHI ld's Play: Sport in Kids' Worlds (Critical Issues in Sport and Society)
₱ 2,701.00
Galleon

Is sport good for kids? When answering this question, both critics and advocates of youth sports tend to fixate on matters of health, whether condemning contact sports for their concussion risk or prescribing athletics as a cure for the childhood obesity epidemic. Child’s Play presents a more nuanced examination of the issue, considering not only the physical impacts of youth athletics, but its psychological and social ramifications as well. The eleven original scholarly essays in this collection provide a probing look into how sports—in community athletic leagues, in schools, and even on television—play a major role in how young people view themselves, shape their identities, and imagine their place in society. Rather than focusing exclusively on self-proclaimed jocks, the book considers how the culture of sports affects a wide variety of children and young people, including those who opt out of athletics. Not only does Child’s Play examine disparities across lines of race, class, and gender, it also offers detailed examinations of how various minority populations, from transgender youth to Muslim immigrant girls, have participated in youth sports. Taken together, these essays offer a wide range of approaches to understanding the sociology of youth sports, including data-driven analyses that examine national trends, as well as ethnographic research that gives a voice to individual kids. Child’s Play thus presents a comprehensive and compelling analysis of how, for better and for worse, the culture of sports is integral to the development of young people—and with them, the future of our society.

CHI na, The United States, and the Future of Southeast Asia: U.S.-na Relations, Volume II
₱ 3,748.00
Galleon

Distinguished experts explain the economic trends and varied political goals at work in Southeast Asia. With China’s emergence as a powerful entity in Southeast Asia, the region has become an unlikely site of conflict between two of the world’s great powers. The United States, historically regarded as the protector of Pacific Southeast Asia—consisting of nations such as Vietnam, the Philippines, Myanmar, and Malaysia—is now called upon to respond to what many would consider bullying on the part of the Chinese. These and other countries have become the economic and political engine of China. While certainly inclined to help the country’s former allies, the United States has grown undeniably closer to China in the recent decades of global interconnected economic growth. China, the United States, and the Future of Southeast Asia uncovers and delves into the complicated dynamics of this situation. Covering topics such as the controversial response to human rights violations, the effects of global economic interconnectedness, and contested sovereignty over resource-rich islands, this volume provides a modern and nuanced perspective on the state of the region. For anyone interested in understanding the evolving global balance of power, China, the United States, and the Future of Southeast Asia illuminates how countries as different as Thailand and Indonesia see the growing competition between Beijing and Washington.

CHI p Breaker Design, Theory and Practice: Maning with a Step-Type p Breaker
₱ 9,366.00
Galleon

The present tendency towards machining at high cutting speeds has increased the demand on the use of chip breakers and it has become necessary to ascertain in advance how a chip breaker will perform under a given set up machining conditions. This has initiated a number of studies on the mechanism of chip breaking in machining with both obstruction and groove type chip breakers and has prompted researchers to formulate different breakability criteria which can be used to evaluate the performance of these devices. The present text analyses the problem of chip breaking while machining with a step-type chip breaker using the rigid-plastic slip line field theory. An Attempt has been made to identify the parameters contributing to chip breaking and to study the validity of the different breakability criteria through orthogonal cutting tests. Shear strains in the primary and the secondary deformation zones are estimated and a method is suggested for chip breaker design from the bending strain in chips. The analysis and the accompanying experimental results will no doubt be of value to professionals engaged in metal cutting research

₱ 6,428.00
Galleon

Children Who Resist Postseparation Parental Contact is a critical, empirically based review of parental alienation that integrates the best research evidence with clinical insight from interviews with leading scholars and practitioners. The authors - Fidler, Bala, and Saini - a psychologist, a lawyer and a social worker, are an multidisciplinary team who draw upon the growing body of mental health and legal literature to summarize the historical development and controversies surrounding the concept of "alienation" and explain the causes, dynamics, and differentiation of various types of parent-child relationship issues. The authors review research on prevalence, risk factors, indicators, assessment, and measurement to form a conceptual integration of multiple factors relevant to the etiology and maintenance of the problem of strained parent-child relationships. A differential approach to assessment and intervention is provided. Children's rights, the role of their wishes and preferences in legal proceedings, and the short- and long-term impact of parental alienation are also discussed. Considering legal, clinical, prevention, and intervention strategies, and concluding with recommendations for practice, research, and policy, this book is a much-needed resource for mental health professionals, judges, family lawyers, child protection workers, mediators, and others who work with families dealing with divorce, separation, and child custody issues.

CHI na's Technological Catch-Up Strategy: Industrial Development, Energy Efficiency, and CO2 Emissions
₱ 5,283.00
Galleon

Prior to 1979, China had a bifurcated and geographically-dispersed industrial structure made up of a relatively small number of large-scale, state-owned enterprises in various industries alongside numerous small-scale, energy-intensive and polluting enterprises. Economic reforms beginning in 1979 led to the rapid expansion of these small-scale manufacturing enterprises in numerous energy-intensive industries such as aluminum, cement, iron and steel, and pulp and paper. Subsequently, the government adopted a new industrial development strategy labeled "grasp the large, let go the small." The aims of this new policy were to close many of the unprofitable, small-scale manufacturing plants in these (and other) industries, create a small number of large enterprises that could compete with OECD multinationals, entice these larger enterprises to engage in high-speed technological catch-up, and save energy. China's Technological Catch-Up Strategy traces the impact of this new industrial development strategy on technological catch-up, energy use, and CO2 emissions. In doing so, the authors explore several detailed, enterprise-level case studies of technological catch-up; develop industry-wide estimates of energy and CO2 savings from specific catch-up interventions; and present detailed econometric work on the determinants of energy intensity. The authors conclude that China's strategy has contributred to substantial energy and CO2 savings, but it has not led to either a peaking of or a decline in CO2 emissions in these industries. More work is needed to cap and reduce China's CO2 emissions.

CHI ldren Without a State: A Global Human Rights Challenge (MIT Press)
₱ 1,503.00
Galleon

Children are among the most vulnerable citizens of the world, with a special need for the protections, rights, and services offered by states. And yet children are particularly at risk from statelessness. Thirty-six percent of all births in the world are not registered, leaving more than forty-eight million children under the age of five with no legal identity and no formal claim on any state. Millions of other children are born stateless or become undocumented as a result of migration. Children Without a State is the first book to examine how statelessness affects children throughout the world, examining this largely unexplored problem from a human rights perspective. The human rights repercussions explored range from dramatic abuses (detention and deportation) to social marginalization (lack of access to education and health care). The book provides a variety of examples, including chapters on Palestinian children in Israel, undocumented young people seeking higher education in the United States, unaccompanied child migrants in Spain, Roma children in Italy, irregular internal child migrants in China, and children in mixed legal/illegal families in the United States.

CHI na Goes Global: The Partial Power
₱ 2,065.00
Galleon

Most global citizens are well aware of the explosive growth of the Chinese economy. Indeed, China has famously become the "workshop of the world." Yet, while China watchers have shed much light on the country's internal dynamics--China's politics, its vast social changes, and its economic development--few have focused on how this increasingly powerful nation has become more active and assertive throughout the world. In China Goes Global , eminent China scholar David Shambaugh delivers the book that many have been waiting for--a sweeping account of China's growing prominence on the international stage. Thirty years ago, China's role in global affairs beyond its immediate East Asian periphery was decidedly minor and it had little geostrategic power. Today however, China's expanding economic power has allowed it to extend its reach virtually everywhere--from mineral mines in Africa, to currency markets in the West, to oilfields in the Middle East, to agribusiness in Latin America, to the factories of East Asia. Shambaugh offers an enlightening look into the manifestations of China's global presence: its extensive commercial footprint, its growing military power, its increasing cultural influence or "soft power," its diplomatic activity, and its new prominence in global governance institutions. But Shambaugh is no alarmist. In this balanced and well-researched volume, he argues that China's global presence is more broad than deep and that China still lacks the influence befitting a major world power--what he terms a "partial power." He draws on his decades of China-watching and his deep knowledge of the subject, and exploits a wide variety of previously untapped sources, to shed valuable light on China's current and future roles in world affairs.

CHI na's Great Migration: How the Poor Built a Prosperous Nation
₱ 2,324.00
Galleon

China’s rise over the past several decades has lifted more than half of its population out of poverty and reshaped the global economy. What has caused this dramatic transformation? In China’s Great Migration: How the Poor Built a Prosperous Nation , author Bradley Gardner looks at one of the most important but least discussed forces pushing China’s economic development: the migration of more than 260 million people from their birthplaces to China’s most economically vibrant cities. By combining an analysis of China’s political economy with current scholarship on the role of migration in economic development, China’s Great Migration shows how the largest economic migration in the history of the world has led to a bottom-up transformation of China. Gardner draws from his experience as a researcher and journalist working in China to investigate why people chose to migrate and the social and political consequences of their decisions. In the aftermath of China's Cultural Revolution, the collapse of totalitarian government control allowed millions of people to skirt migration restrictions and move to China’s growing cities, where they offered a massive pool of labor that propelled industrial development, foreign investment, and urbanization. Struggling to respond to the demands of these migrants, the Chinese government loosened its grip on the economy, strengthening property rights and allowing migrants to employ themselves and each other, spurring the Chinese economic miracle. More than simply a narrative of economic progress, China’s Great Migration tells the human story of China’s transformation, featuring interviews with the men and women whose way of life has been remade.

CHI nese Philosophy: An Introduction (Introductions to Religion)
₱ 9,576.00
Galleon

The philosophical traditions of China have arguably influenced more human beings than any other. China has been the home not only of its indigenous philosophical traditions of Confucianism and Daoism, but also of uniquely modified forms of Buddhism. As Ronnie L Littlejohn shows, these traditions have for thousands of years formed the bedrock of the longest continuing civilization on the planet; and Chinese philosophy has profoundly shaped the institutions, social practices and psychological character of East and Southeast Asia. The author here surveys the key texts and philosophical systems of Chinese thinkers in a completely original and illuminating way. Ranging from the Han dynasty to the present, he discusses the six classical schools of Chinese philosophy (Yin-Yang, Ru, Mo, Ming, Fa and Dao-De); the arrival of Buddhism in China and its distinctive development; the central figures and movements from the end of the Tang dynasty to the introduction into China of Western thought; and the impact of Chinese philosophers―ranging from Confucius and Laozi to Tu Weiming―on their equivalents in the West.

An ancient Taoist system for detoxifying and rejuvenating the internal organs • Presents techniques to clear blockages in the body’s energy flow • Includes illustrated exercises to relieve common ailments, revitalize the organs, and enable readers to take charge of their own health and well-being • Focuses on the navel center, where negative emotions, stress, and illness accumulate The techniques of Chi Nei Tsang evolved in Asia during an era when few physicians were available and people had to know how to heal themselves. Many people today have symptoms that modern medicine is not able to cure because a physical source for the problem is not easily found. The energies of negative emotions, stress, and tension--all common in modern life--and the weight of past illness accumulate in the abdominal center, causing energy blockages and congestion. When this occurs, all vital functions stagnate and myriad problems arise. By practicing the techniques of Chi Nei Tsang, this stagnation is removed and the vital organs surrounding the navel center are detoxified and rejuvenated. Master Chia teaches readers how to avoid absorbing negative energies from others and take full charge of their health through the self-healing techniques of Chi Nei Tsang. He offers fully illustrated exercises that show how to detoxify the internal organs and clear the energy (chi) channels throughout the body. He also presents methods for balancing emotions, managing stress, and observing the body in order to recognize, ameliorate, and prevent maladies before they become a problem.

Allen recounts the full story of a famous 1871 Arctic disaster, in which thirty-two vessels in the New Bedford whaling fleet, carrying 1200 officers and crew, found themselves trapped in gale-driven pack ice. The shipwrecked victims were miraculously rescued without a single loss of human life. The damage to the fleet, however, was something from which New Bedford never fully recovered.

CHI LLERAMA Presents: Tim Sullivan's I Was a Teenage Werebear
₱ 983.00
Galleon

BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents Tim Sullivan s CHILLERAMA: I WAS A TEENAGE WEREBEAR, featuring songs and score performed by PsychoCharger, Briana Nadeau, Bobby Vinton, Robert Vinton, and cast members Sean Paul Lockhart, Gabby West and Anton Troy. An homage to the drive-in movies of the 50 s and 60 s, CHILLERAMA is a comedy-horror anthology comprised of four vignettes from some of contemporary horror s biggest filmmakers, among them I WAS A TEENAGE WEREBEAR, from writer/director Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs, Driftwood). A funny, subversive spoof of the Eisenhower/Kennedy-era beach movies, I WAS A TEENAGE WEREBEAR follows a day in the life of closeted new kid Ricky O'Reilly (played by Sean Paul Lockhart, aka adult film superstar Brent Corrigan) who falls for Malibu High's mysterious bad boy Talon (Anton Troy). When aroused, the two transform into bestial leather daddies, the titular werebears. The film features five rock n roll musical numbers, along with five other songs written specifically for the soundtrack that spin the frothy boy/girl/beach format into a humorously bloody, albeit well-intentioned, call for acceptance and tolerance. One of the pleasures of making I WAS A TEENAGE WEREBEAR, described Sullivan, was the independence it allowed me to simply be me. And that meant coming out of the closet as an admitted fan of movie musicals as well as movie monsters. So taking a page from ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW and HAIRSPRAY, I channeled my inner AMERICAN GRAFFITI and GREASE and dashed out some ditties I hoped combined camp and cool. In addition to the songs performed in the film by Lockhart, Troy and company, Sullivan tapped a variety of artists, including pop diva Briana Nadeau, whose I m Gonna Make Him Mine and Undercover Lover are a perfect blend of Duffy meets Dusty Springfield. Two other songs featured in the film are courtesy of the Vintons, Bobby and son Rob. Truth be told, continued Sullivan, before I became obsessed with KISS at age 13, I was quite infatuated with Bobby Vinton, our family being Polish and my grandma playing his albums over and over. Never in a million years would I have dreamed that Mr. Lonely himself would be crooning a tune in one of my films. Robert Vinton appears both on the soundtrack and in the film, performing Sexy Ways . Rounding out the soundtrack are Patrick Copeland s score in suite form and a nice little bonus from shockabilly rockers Psycho Charger, who conjured up the hard rocking title track, Chillerama . A music video for Chillerama , starring the band and featuring clips from the film, was directed by Sullivan and will be released to coincide with the soundtrack. Following the four month film festival tour of CHILLERAMA, the 30 minute 'hairy and uncut" version of I WAS A TEENAGE WEREBEAR left fans growling for more. As a result, Sullivan and his Chillerama co-creator and fellow director Adam Rifkin will be bringing a full-length musical stage version to LA in September of 2012, with stars Sean Paul Lockhart and Anton Troy set to reprise their roles. I guess the moral of the story is- when you stay true, good things happen, said Sullivan. We all stayed true to our vision and theme, and the result is this fun little soundtrack of which we all are proud. These tunes are designed to stick in your brain forever- so proceed at your own risk. And never forget werebears need love too...

CHI ldren’s Play, Pretense, and Story: Studies in Culture, Context, and Autism Spectrum Disorder
₱ 3,046.00
Galleon

At the heart of this volume is the recognition that children’s engagement with play and story are intrinsically and intricately linked. The contributing authors share a passionate interest in the development and well-being of children, in particular through their use of imagination and adaptation of the everyday into play and stories. Following these principles, the volume explores the connections between play, story, and pretense with regard to many cultural and contextual factors that influence the way these elements vary in children’s lives. In a departure from earlier collections on play and story, the authors take a particular focus on normative as compared with atypical development. This collection begins with an approach to understanding the developmental relationship between play and story, which recognizes their similarities while acknowledging their differences. Much of the collection addresses pretend play and story in children with autism spectrum disorder, an understudied but important group for consideration, as these dimensions of their lives and development have often been considered problematic. The volume also includes sections on play and story in classroom settings and play and story across cultures, including non-English-speaking environments such as Israel, Romania, China, and Mexico. It concludes with a discussion of how play differs across sociocultural and economic contexts, making a unifying claim for the importance of play in children’s lives but also calling for an understanding of what play means to very different groups of children.

“The October Daye series has become one of my favorites, and it just keeps getting better and better.” —Fantasy Book Café Things are starting to look up for October “Toby” Daye. She’s training her squire, doing her job, and has finally allowed herself to grow closer to the local King of Cats. It seems like her life may finally be settling down…at least until dead changelings start appearing in the alleys of San Francisco, killed by an overdose of goblin fruit. Toby’s efforts to take the problem to the Queen of the Mists are met with harsh reprisals, leaving her under sentence of exile from her home and everyone she loves. Now Toby must find a way to reverse the Queen’s decree, get the goblin fruit off the streets—and, oh, yes, save her own life, since more than a few of her problems have once again followed her home. And then there’s the question of the Queen herself, who seems increasingly unlikely to have a valid claim to the throne…. To find the answers, October and her friends will have to travel from the legendary Library of Stars into the hidden depths of the Kingdom of the Mists—and they’ll have to do it fast, because time is running out. In Faerie, some fates are worse than death. October Daye is about to find out what they are. “McGuire applies a hard-boiled mentality and a keen appreciation for mythology to a blend of politics, magic, and romance.” — Publishers Weekly “The October Daye series is one of those delicious worlds that becomes more and more beloved with each visit….

CHI ldren's Literature Grows Up: Harry Potter and the ldren's Literature Revolution
₱ 2,106.00
Galleon

“Children know such a lot now,” Peter Pan once told us. A century later, in the Age of Information, they know even more. So shouldn’t their literature rise up to meet them? Isn’t it time for children’s literature to grow up? First conceived as her doctoral dissertation at Harvard University, with this extensive examination of J. K. Rowling’s series, Christina Phillips-Mattson argues that with the Harry Potter books we witness the beginning of a new era of children’s literature. Marking a departure from casual handbooks to the Harry Potter series, Phillips-Mattson provides the reader with a scholarly examination of Rowling’s novels—as well as other contemporary fictions for children by such novelists as Philip Pullman, Lemony Snicket, Catherynne Valente, and Neil Gaiman—that is also entertaining and accessible. In order to demonstrate that contemporary fictions for children are as complex, multifaceted, and worthy of serious academic inquiry as adult literature, Phillips-Mattson takes the reader on an exciting journey through a highly detailed history of children’s literature and shows us how Rowling’s novels belong to a rich and varied literary tradition by placing Harry Potter alongside Greek mythology, classic fairy tales, Golden Age texts like Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan, Jane Austen’s Emma and Pride and Prejudice, Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita, and Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales. Employing the criticism of Henry James, T.S. Eliot, and Virginia Woolf, Phillips-Mattson responds to Rowling’s detractors and provides evidence of Rowling’s stylistic sophistication and complex narrative structure that underwrite the believability of her characters and her fictional world. An engaging, thought-provoking read for scholars, teachers, general readers of children’s literature, and Harry Potter enthusiasts, Children’s Literature Grows Up includes fascinating new research on spell language, intertextuality, moral agency, and psychological realism.

CHI une Sugihara and Japan's Foreign Ministry: Between Incompetence and Culpability Part II (Pt. II)
₱ 7,189.00
Galleon

When the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany partitioned Poland in September of 1939, thousands of Jews fled Poland into Lithuania and fled across the USSR to Japan. With the help of Jan Zwartendijk, acting Dutch consul, and Chiune Sugihara, Japan's vice consul in Lithuania, the refugees obtained documents for their perilous escape from Nazi persecution. From Japan, many refugees moved on to Dutch-controlled Curacao or other final destinations. Decades after the war, and one year before his death in 1986, Sugihara was finally honored by Israel with the "Righteous Among the Nations" Award for the help he gave to the Jews in 1940. He also received the Raoul Wallenburg Award posthumously in 1990. However, in Japan little was known about Sugihara's heroic actions for more than five decades. The author, Seishiro Sugihara (no relation to Chiune), reveals a pattern of deception and obfuscation by Japan's foreign ministry to obstruct recognition of Sugihara's philanthropy. The Sugihara episode, the author contends, is only one in a long line of scandalous cover-ups which have plagued the Ministry, including its ill-fated Twenty-One Demands upon Nationalist China in 1915; and more infamously the failure of its Washington Embassy to follow orders and deliver the "declaration of war" on December 7, 1941 which resulted in the Pearl Harbor operation being stigmatized as a "sneak attack." His book is the first to demonstrate that, while Japan's military was abolished during the Occupation, the Foreign Ministry secured its own future at the expense of Japan and the Japanese people, and deliberately and systematically placed Sugihara's act of kindness beyond public scrutiny.

CHI na's Golden Age: Everyday Life in the Tang Dynasty

The Tang Dynasty (618-907), traditionally regarded as the golden age of China, was a time of patricians and intellectuals, Buddhist monks and Taoist priests, poetry and music, song and dance. In China's Golden Age: Everyday Life in the Tang Dynasty , Charles Benn paints a vivid picture of the lifestyle behind the grandeur of the Tang culture. All aspects of day-to-day life are presented, including crime,entertainment, fashion, marriage, food, hygiene, dwellings, and transportation. Attend an ancient feast to celebrate an imperial birthday, where ale was served in elaborate pitchers before a meal of fourteen hors d'oeuvres and twenty-three courses. Learn which colors concubines used for their eye makeup and beauty marks, and what jealous wives did to discourage such enhancement. See the similarities between today's pubs and the Tang alehouses, where women were hired to dance and sing to encourage patrons to stay longer and spend more money. Decide for yourself why Yangzhou, a city on the Grand Canal close to the Yangtze River, was considered one of the greatest cities in the Tang Dynasty. Benn translates and paraphrases his classical Chinese sources from the Tang era with fresh and polished prose. He also includes his own illustrations of everything from tools and hairstyles to musical instruments and courtyard dwellings. A history of the rise and fall of the dynasty is presented, as is a look at the societal structure of the aristocracy, bureaucracy, eunuchs, clergy, peasants, artisans, merchants, and slaves. This thorough explanation provides fascinating insight into a culture and time that is often misunderstood by Westerners and brings alive both the everyday routine and the timeless splendor of this intellectually and artistically powerful epoch. Enjoy your journey in China's Golden Age , and come back to the present with a greater understanding of this amazing time.

CHI na's Energy Security: The Domestic Discussion
₱ 4,102.00
Galleon

This book is about two subjects which have been keeping the world on tenterhooks: China and Energy. When China is discussed economy becomes the protagonist and when energy is discussed West Asia and Africa are the only regions thought about. However there is a symbiotic relationship between the world's fastest rising superpower and the world's fastest depleting natural resources, which is less talked about. China has crossed borders to procure fuel for its economy but how does it manage its own internal situation? What is the connection between economy, energy and environment and how does China's political structure manage it? This book is primarily based on resources written in the Chinese language, and it gives an inside view of China, and compares and contrasts both the Chinese and Western perspectives of an issue of extreme gravity. Moreover it talks about the nexus between energy, economy and environment and its internal politics. This book is aimed at giving an overall view of the picture, as it is not just one dimension that dominates or determines China's energy script. With an intense focus on the growing importance of China's energy factor, it traces the changing priorities given to the energy sector as reflected in China's policies. It further studies the impact of economic growth on energy and vice versa, i.e., the relation between the changing economic dynamism and the role of energy in contribution to its growth. It discusses the participation of economics in intensified energy utilisation and the function it can play in achieving energy optimisation. Moreover, environmental determinism and sustainable development is an important issue especially in the context of the degradation of environment and the investment in renewable resources and advanced know-how to achieve a greater degree of sustainable development.

CHI ldren and Youth in Sickness and in Health: A Historical Handbook and Guide (ldren and Youth: History and Culture)
₱ 6,041.00
Galleon

Six original essays reflect the growing scholarly interest in the history of childhood and youth, particularly issues affecting child health and welfare. These important new essays show how changing patterns of health and disease have responded to and shaped notions of childhood and adolescence as life stages. Until the early 20th century, life-threatening illnesses were a sinister presence in the lives of children of all social classes. Today, many diseases and threats to child health have been eliminated or alleviated. Yet critical problems remain. New threats such as AIDS and violence take a steady toll. Child health remains an active concern for all families. Despite the development of health care policies, social welfare policies, and effective medication, the home remains―as it was in the Colonial period―the most critical site of care. Parents are still central to the preservation of children's health. This work imposes a holistic view of this experience for children and families. By examining the child's perspective of illness, the authors make an important contribution to the understanding of illness as part of the developmental process of growing up.

China and Islam examines the intersection of two critical issues of the contemporary world: Islamic revival and an assertive China, questioning the assumption that Islamic law is incompatible with state law. It finds that both Hui and the Party-State invoke, interpret, and make arguments based on Islamic law, a minjian (unofficial) law in China, to pursue their respective visions of 'the good'. Based on fieldwork in Linxia, 'China's Little Mecca', this study follows Hui clerics, youthful translators on the 'New Silk Road', female educators who reform traditional madrasas, and Party cadres as they reconcile Islamic and socialist laws in the course of the everyday. The first study of Islamic law in China and one of the first ethnographic accounts of law in postsocialist China, China and Islam unsettles unidimensional perceptions of extremist Islam and authoritarian China through Hui minjian practices of law.

The accumulation of tensions in the muscles and tendons as well as the stagnation of negative energy can lead to blockages in the body’s energy channels, resulting in pain, low energy, or illness. In this full-color illustrated guide, Master Mantak Chia and William Wei detail massage techniques for unblocking chi, releasing tight tendons and muscles, and alleviating back and joint pain. The authors explore the 10 Thai energy meridians known as Sen Sib, the 12 muscle-tendon meridians of Chinese acupuncture, and the most commonly strained muscles and tendons of the spine, neck, and pelvis. They explain how to treat specific ailments, such as headache, stiff shoulder, or lumbar pain, with the traditional Thai massage technique known as Tok Sen, which uses a wooden hammer to send vibrational energy deep into the fascia and muscles along the Sen Sib meridians. This method is particularly effective for joint pain, because the vibrations can reach more deeply and accurately within the body’s structure than a massage therapist’s fingers. The authors also explain Meridian Detox Therapy, which includes cupping, skin massage, and Gua Sha--the scraping of different parts of the body to clear blood stagnation, promote metabolism, and treat acute illness. The final book in the Chi Nei Tsang series, Chi Nei Ching offers advanced massage techniques to work with the energy meridians for optimum health.

₱ 4,902.00
Galleon

Despite China's obvious and growing importance on the world stage, it remains often and easily misunderstood. Perhaps this is due in part to the pace of the nation’s remarkable rise and the many economic, political, and environmental problems that have accompanied its growth. Indeed, there are many Chinas, as this comprehensive survey of contemporary China vividly illustrates. Now in a thoroughly revised and updated third edition that offers the only all-embracing geography of the reform era, this book traces the changes occurring in this powerful and ancient nation across both time and space. Beginning with China's diverse landscapes and environments, and continuing through its formative history and tumultuous recent past, the authors present contemporary China as a product of both internal and external forces of past and present. They consider past and present successes and difficulties, including environmental challenges, while placing China in its international context as a massive, still-developing nation that must meet the needs of its 1.4 billion citizens while becoming a major regional and global player. Through clear prose and140 insightful maps, tables, and photos, China's Geography illustrates and explains the great differences in economy, politics, and society found throughout China's many regions. Full-c olor versions of all the maps, figures, and photographs in the book are available on the China's Geography website at http://chinadatacenter.org/chinageography , along with a number of additional maps and data sets that can be used for class exercises or as the basis for student research papers and presentations.
