Leftover in China: The Women Shaping the World's Next Superpower

Hardback
by Lake, Roseann
Forty years ago in China, marriage was universal, compulsory and a woman's only means to a livelihood. Then the one-child policy resulted in China's first generations of urban only-daughters-girls who were pushed to study, achieve and succeed as if they were sons. Now, enough of these women have decided to postpone marriage-or not marry at all-to spawn a label: "leftovers". They struggle to find partners in...

But by cooking with Vietnamese home cooks, chefs and Mahayana Buddhist monks, Cameron Stauch learned about a tradition of vegetarian cooking that is lighter and just as flavourful. Spicy, tangy, crunchy and sweet, the dishes in Vegetarian Viet Nam range from soups and noodle bowls to main courses with ric...

Pogrom: Kishinev and the Tilt of History

In three days of violence, 49 Jews were killed and 600 raped or wounded, whilst more than 1,000 Jewish-owned houses and stores were ransacked and destroyed. Recounted in lurid detail by newspapers throughout th...
