Ever since Boy Scout days Roger Legg has obtained great pleasure from long-distance walking. On the whole he does not like following footpath routes designated by Acts of Parliament, nor following books of instructions on how to get from A to B ... proceed for one mile; turn left at the farm gate; be careful of the marsh at the bottom of hill ..... It all sounds a bit like joining the army and often fails to get the walker off the beaten track. Rather he prefers to plan his own route, to use map and compass. This book is a record of six journeys which he made in the British Isles during the years 1980 to 1991. He hopes the reader will enjoy his adventures; as that great walker George Borrow said many years ago: ..... these British Islands ... where more strange things are every day occurring, whether in road or street, house or dingle

Strangers from a Different Shore

A history of Asian Americans, introducing the people, the cultures, and their hope, fears, contribution, and dreams.

In an extraordinary blend of narrative history, personal recollection, & oral testimony, the author presents a sweeping history of Asian Americans. He writes of the Chinese who laid tracks for the transcontinental railroad, of plantation laborers in the canefields of Hawaii, of "picture brides" marrying strangers in the hope of becoming part of the American dream. He tells stories of Japanese Americans behind the barbed wire of U.S. internment camps during World War II, Hmong refugees tragically unable to adjust to Wisconsin's alien climate & culture, & Asian American students stigmatized by the stereotype of the "model minority." This is a powerful & moving work that will resonate for all Americans, who together make up a nation of immigrants from other shores.

In this thought-provoking book, an internationally acclaimed scholar writes about the passion for ideology among nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian intellectuals and about the development of sophisticated critiques of ideology by a continuing minority of Russian thinkers inspired by libertarian humanism. Aileen Kelly sets the conflict between utopian and anti-utopian traditions in Russian thought within the context of the shift in European thought away from faith in universal systems and "grand narratives" of progress toward an acceptance of the role of chance and contingency in nature and history. In the current age, as we face the dilemma of how to prevent the erosion of faith in absolutes and final solutions from ending in moral nihilism, we have much to learn from the struggles, failures, and insights of Russian thinkers, Kelly says. Her essays--some of them tours de force that have appeared before as well as substantial new studies of Turgenev, Herzen, and the Signposts debate--illuminate the insights of Russian intellectuals into the social and political consequences of ideas of such seminal Western thinkers as Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and Darwin.

Another Shore

If the story is essentially human, one of immigrant and indigene, it is told just as much through the sensibilities, voices, and actions of the ocean, raven, loon, and fire.

In this poetic narrative, James Dott proves himself a wondrous myth-maker within the incomparable economy of seventeen scenes. Another Shore keeps its secrets and its tensions by withholding explanation. As a spellbound reader, I have followed the basket-weavers' guidance: "Over north and under east/over south and under west/repeat" (from Basketry). Karin Temple, author of Child of War, So Great a Cloud of Witnesses, and Chalice of Tears James Dott's poems offer both visionary and humane insights. They draw us into a world where the natural world is matched with the inner landscape of self-awareness. His poems are filled with intelligent and artistic values. They will lead you into introspection. David Bogue, editor, Turtle Island Quarterly In this masterful narrative poem cycle, James Dott devotes his large gift to reimagining the bleak and grueling settlement of Plymouth Harbor more than four centuries ago, and one orphaned woman's unwanted escape from it. Her remarkable story of hard loss and discovered love carries from gentle Devon to the mountains of Massachusetts, in sharp images and lyrics as lovely as "through the shifting slur of leaves, /a thrush's song" and "a sound/smaller than shrew speech". If the story is essentially human, one of immigrant and indigene, it is told just as much through the sensibilities, voices, and actions of the ocean, raven, loon, and fire. The American colonial experience will never be quite the same for me after reading Another Shore. Robert Michael Pyle, author of Evolution of the Genus Iris and Chinook & Chanterelle

Musicians from a Different Shore

If an American performer cannot convincingly play a piece of music from another
culture, that's because that person has no talent. Especially in this day and age,
you can have access to the world, you can get music from another culture ...

Musicians of Asian descent enjoy unprecedented prominence in concert halls, conservatories, and classical music performance competitions. In the first book on the subject, Mari Yoshihara looks into the reasons for this phenomenon, starting with her own experience of learning to play piano in Japan at the age of three. Yoshihara shows how a confluence of culture, politics and commerce after the war made classical music a staple in middle-class households, established Yamaha as the world's largest producer of pianos and gave the Suzuki method of music training an international clientele. Soon, talented musicians from Japan, China and South Korea were flocking to the United States to study and establish careers, and Asian American families were enrolling toddlers in music classes. Against this historical backdrop, Yoshihara interviews Asian and Asian American musicians, such as Cho-Liang Lin, Margaret Leng Tan, Kent Nagano, who have taken various routes into classical music careers. They offer their views about the connections of race and culture and discuss whether the music is really as universal as many claim it to be. Their personal histories and Yoshihara's observations present a snapshot of today's dynamic and revived classical music scene.
