Are some things more important than money? When millions of people take to the streets of Hong Kong to protest against the government, young Australian ex-pat Jacob Watson has to decide between pursuing his high flying career or joining the violent fight for democracy in the city he now calls home. There were big fortunes to be made in Hong Kong, the financial heart of Asia, and no one knew that better than Jacob Watson. He was on the fast track. After more than two years in the Asian financial hub, the young man was already managing a large property portfolio for one of Hong Kong's biggest tycoons, networking with captains of industry, and living a life he could never have dreamed of back in Australia. It was onwards and upwards for the young Australian ex-pat, But then life in Hong Kong changed. Millions of people took to the streets to protest increasing interference from China, turning Jacob's world upside down. What should Jacob do? Ignore everything happening around him and focus only on his career and building his fortune? Or is freedom and democracy for all worth sacrificing ones personal desires? Book 1 in The Hong Kong Trilogy. Praise for Mark David Abbott "The author puts the reader in a situation that a common person could realistically find themselves in... The reader, therefore, finds himself immersed in the story rather than experiencing the story as an un-involved by-stander." "The author is an exceptional storyteller which has become a rarity these days."

Affirmative Action Bake Sale
99,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An affirmative action bake sale is a campus protest event used by student groups to illustrate criticism of affirmative action policies, especially as they relate to college and graduate school admissions. According to one bake sale student leader, the goal of the technique is to "bring the issue of affirmative action down to everyday terms." The bake sales offer to sell cookies at different prices depending on the customer's race and sex, imitating the racial and sexual preference practices of affirmative action. One idea of such bake sales is to demonstrate analogies between price discrimination and affirmative action. A typical pricing structure charges $1.00 for White and Asian males, $.75 for White and Asian females, $.50 for Latino, Black, and Native American males and $.25 for Latino, Black, and Native American females. The bake sales' hosts do not support this kind of preferential treatment, rather, they argue that this preferential pricing is analogous to the preferential treatment created by affirmative action policies.

Carabao (Band)
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Carabao are a Thai rock band which is very popular in Thailand and other Asian countries. The group was formed in 1976 by university students Yuenyong Opakul (Aed) and Kirati Promsaka Na Sakon Nakhon (Khiao) who met while studying in the Philippines. The word carabao is Tagalog meaning "buffalo", a symbol of fighting, hard working and patience. They are known for their Phleng phuea chiwit or 'songs for life'. This kind of music came to prominence through the protest songs of the 1970s political upheaval in Thailand, especially from the brilliant Caravan band. Carabao have blended the acoustic/folk style of 'peua chiwit' with other forms of Thai music, western rock and country music, and various kinds of world music like Latin music and reggae, earning such labels as 'ethnic rockers' and 'Kings of 3Cha' or 'Rolling Stones of Asia'4 (in German). MTV Asia calls them "veteran". Carabao's songs often tackle social and political issues, demanding social justice and taking on the causes of the ordinary Thai people, but they have also created love songs and more philosophical songs that carry messages for people everywhere.

Transnational Protest, Australia and the 1960s
98,10 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Australia is rarely considered to have been a part of the great political changes that swept the world in the 1960s: the struggles of the American civil rights movement, student revolts in Europe, guerrilla struggles across the Third World and demands for women's and gay liberation. This book tells the story of how Australian activists from a diversity of movements read about, borrowed from, physically encountered and critiqued overseas manifestations of these rebellions, as well as locating the impact of radical visitors to the nation. It situates Australian protest and reform movements within a properly global - and particularly Asian - context, where Australian protestors sought answers, utopias and allies. Dramatically broadens our understanding of Australian protest movements, this book presents them not only as manifestations of local issues and causes but as fundamentally tied to ideas, developments and personalities overseas, particularly to socialist states and struggles in near neighbours like Vietnam, Malaysia and China.' Jon Piccini is Research and Teaching Fellow at The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. His research interests include the history of human rights and social histories of international student migration.'
