Lessons from the East:Representations of East Asia in Contemporary Anglophone Films and Novels Stankomir Nicieja
Decision Making in a Nuclear Middle East analyzes the implications of a nuclear Iran by applying lessons from the Cold War. It takes a hard look at the assumed stability of the Cold War, the judgment of Soviet and American leaders, technology glitches, incidents and events that brought the superpowers closer to a nuclear exchange than they ever planned or expected. It uses these lessons to detail the existential threat posed by Iran´s nuclear weapons program in a Middle East context and its implications for a potential nuclear conflict in the region. 1.

A broad ranging how-to guide through permaculture gardening and community development, featuring: Articles about gardening in rough environments Anecdotes about using the garden in school ´´If ever a mortal heard the word of God, it would be in a garden at the close of day.” I first read that quote in Civ.Over the years, I’ve learned more and more about the natural world. In many ways, it was a natural outgrowth of both my philosophical approach and my inclination for teaching. It´s a matter of a development orientation, which comes down to watching, experimenting, and learning. Gardening, as presented here, is more than just growing things; it’s teaching and learning in the most practical and natural possible way. It’s called natural science for a reason.Collected herein are a series of gardening columns (written for the local newspaper), tips on companion planting and permaculture, and short stories of our in-school gardening projects that’ll give you a rounded idea of how to operate your garden as a space for growing, whether that’s veggies and wildlife or confidence and education. 1.

Lessons from Mount Kilimanjaro:Schooling Community and Gender in East Africa Amy Stambach
Xiaolu Guo meets her parents for the first time when she is almost seven. They are strangers to her. When she is born her parents hand her over to a childless peasant couple in the mountains. Aged two, and suffering from malnutrition on a diet of yam leaves, they leave Xiaolu with her illiterate grandparents in a fishing village on the East China Sea. It´s a strange beginning. A Wild Swans for a new generation, Once Upon a Time in the East takes Xiaolu from a run-down shack to film school in a rapidly changing Beijing, navigating the everyday peculiarity of modern China: censorship, underground art, Western boyfriends. In 2002 she leaves Beijing on a scholarship to study in Britain. Now, after a decade in Europe, her tale of East to West resonates with the insight that can only come from someone who is both an outsider and at home. Xiaolu Guo´s extraordinary memoir is a handbook of life lessons. How to be an artist when censorship kills creativity and the only job you can get is writing bad telenovela scripts. How to be a woman when female babies are regularly drowned at birth and sexual abuse is commonplace. Most poignantly of all: how to love when you´ve never been shown how.
