As a teenager she hitchhiked to India and later to Afghanistan and Thailand. In Malaysia, at age nineteen, she fell in love with Eddy Tan Kim Soo, a handsome, wealthy Chinese man. They planned to meet in Europe and later marry. But at the airport on her way home, her spanking new Samsonite suitcase--a gift from Eddy--was ripped apart by customs officials. Beatrice was horrified to see that it contained severalkilos of heroin. Clearly she had been set up by Eddy, who, as it turned out, was a member of a powerful drug cartel. Arrested, she languished in prison for two years before she was tried. Her sentence: death by hanging. On appeal, her sentence was reduced to life in prison. "; 1559702303

It traces chronologically the steps taken to quell the uprising, to isolate the Communist leaders, and to encourage the participation of the ex-Huks in representative government and in democratic communities. At the heart of the ambitious campaign, in the author's opinion, lay the desire of Ramon Magsaysay, then Secretary of National Defense, to win the Huks to support of the government by means of a positive program of social reform. The project for developing self-respecting farmers through land settlements was organized under the guidance and discipline of the Economic Development Corps of the Army. " Hobbs #494; 0804704708

But the Japanese Occupation is a strange time for that to happen, especially when one is preoccupied with graver issues: foraging for food in the jungle, keeping from being brutalised, waiting forjustice to act her peculiar will on one's insufferable neighbours...all this while sporting trousers cut from Mother's rose-patterned saris. Against this tableau of contrariety where the grim and the absurd reside in equal measure, the boy James forms a singular friendship with a captain in the Japanese Army, 'an Englishman trapped in the body of a Japanese.

Honolulu University of Hawaii Press 1994 Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
; 15 x 22 cm.; pg. xxiii, 280 ; Translated by Stephanie Morgan. Foreword by Georges Condominas, prefaces to French and English editions, appendix, maps, bibliography, index, black-and-white photos. "As downriver farming peoples expanded upstream and their cultures and technologies diffused, the Punan [societies of Borneo] gradually abandoned their nomadic existence for a more sedentary life of trade-related activities and subsistence agriculture. But the culture that has emerged from these changes is still based on the enduring ideological premises of nomadism. This study, historical in perspective, examines the many factors--ecological, economic, commercial, political, social, cultural, and ideological--that have played a part in this continuing transformation.

"Nestled under mangroves and palm trees, one still feels in Luang Pabang the stirrings of that spirit which has moulded Lao's character, its myths and its magic. This former capital, once home to kings and princes, retains to this day an air of detached haughtiness. It gives the impression of knowing full well that its languid rhythm might bore those not accustomed to it. And little does it seem to care..." ISBN: 9748652998; 9748652998
