Описание: Beyond Shangri-La chronicles relations between the Tibetans and the United States since 1908, when a Dalai Lama first met with U.S. representatives. What was initially a distant alliance became more intimate and entangled in the late 1950s, when the Tibetan people launched an armed resistance movement against the Chinese occupiers. The Tibetans fought to oust the Chinese and to maintain the presence of the current Dalai Lama and his direction of their country. In 1958, John Kenneth Knaus volunteered to serve in a major CIA program to support the Tibetans. For the next seven years, as an operations officer working from India, from Colorado, and from Washington, D.C., he cooperated with the Tibetan rebels as they utilized American assistance to contest Chinese domination and to attain international recognition as an independent entity.Since the late 1950s, the rugged resolve of the Dalai Lama and his people and the growing respect for their efforts to free their homeland from Chinese occupation have made Tibet's political and cultural status a pressing issue in international affairs. So has the realization by nations, including the United States, that their geopolitical interests would best be served by the defeat of the Chinese and the achievement of Tibetan self-determination. Beyond Shangri-La provides unique insight into the efforts of the U.S. government and committed U.S. citizens to support a free Tibet.

Описание:

In 2002, author, filmmaker, and economist Laurence Brahm, inspired by James Hilton's novel Lost Horizon and his own quest for meaning, began his search for Shangri-la. Some say that Shangri-la can be found in sacred Tibet, or maybe in wild Qinghai; others believe it can be found in artistic Yunnan in the southwest of China. The author discovered the spiritual truth that Shangri-la is not a place; rather, it is a state of mind.

As Brahm hitchhiked through western China, well off the beaten track, he recorded the interior changes and illuminations he experienced as his consciousness expanded far beyond the everyday cares of his years of urban life in Beijing. The insights of his journey and his meetings with others who searched for their own versions of Shangri-la, helped him to understand that the archetypal goal he sought was actually a state of consciousness. Shangri-la may be found in a cup of caf latte or yak-butter tea--if we search carefully enough and with mindfulness and compassion.

Searching for Shangri-la is the first book of the Himalayan Trilogy . The reader will discover the need for fresh economic paradigms that call for compassionate capital, the empowerment of people, and prioritization of the environment. Spirituality can be more powerful than materialism. The need for sustainability has rarely been so beautifully and eloquently defended.

Описание: In Rewriting Shangri-La: Migrations and Everyday Literacies among Tibetan Youth in McLeod Ganj, India, Heidi Swank examines differing histories of migration and exile through the lens of everyday literacies. The youth on whom this ethnography focuses live in a community that has long been romanticized by Tibetans and non-Tibetans alike, positioning these youth to see themselves as keepers of a modern day Shangri-la. Through this ethnography - based on a decade of research - Heidi Swank suggests that through seemingly mundane writings (grocery lists, text messages, etc.) these youth are shifting what Shangri-la means by renogotiating important aspects of life in this Tibetan community to better match their lived - not romanticized - experiences as exiles in rural India.

Описание: The Vampire of Shangri-La is the story of Aland van Deest, a twelve-hundred-year-old vampire who sums up his dull routine as, "Roaming the earth. Bedding women. Sucking blood." Lately, Aland lurks aboard a cruise ship as a ma tre d' where he's a likeable member of the crew. He shows up for karaoke night and is a favorite with middle-aged women looking for a fling. Privately Aland is haunted by centuries of memories and wishes for a way to make them stop. A retired African-American physician, Felix "Doc" Willoughby, who was recently hired as a ship's doctor, has been looking for Aland for years. He believes Aland may have known his father before he abandoned Doc's mother at birth. Meanwhile, a travel agent from Wisconsin finds an enormous hickey on her neck where Aland fed, and sees Doc for a remedy. Doc turns to Aland for answers. Doc learns that Aland not only knew his mother, but that Aland is his father Tragically, the despondent travel agent jumps overboard forcing Doc and Aland to transfer to another ship, the Shangri-La, where Aland becomes a singing sensation, and the father and son realize it's not easy being reunited after 70 years. Aland also admits he would like to die naturally and enlists Doc to look for a cure. While Aland's music career is born, the travel agent's sister, Tanya, tracks Aland down because she suspects foul play. Aland is also being targeted by the elusive Vampire Hunter who wants to rid the world of vampires and enlists a group of terrorists to hijack the Shangri-La. Aland is in no mood for any heroics, but he is forced to decide whether he has the will to save his son from danger.

Описание: Judith M. Heimann entered the diplomatic life in 1958 to join her husband, John, in Jakarta, Indonesia, at his American Embassy post. This, her first time out of the United States, would set her on a path across the continents as she mastered the fine points of diplomatic culture. She did so first as a spouse, then as a diplomat herself, thus becoming part of one of the Foreign Service’s first tandem couples. Heimann’s lively recollections of her life in Africa, Asia, and Europe show us that when it comes to reconciling our government’s requirements with the other government’s wants, shuttle diplomacy, Skype, and email cannot match on-the-ground interaction. The ability to gauge and finesse gesture, tone of voice, and unspoken assumptions became her stock-in-trade as she navigated, time and again, remarkably delicate situations. This insightful and witty memoir gives us a behind-the-scenes look at a rarely explored experience: that of one of the very first married female diplomats, who played an unsung but significant role in some of the important international events of the past fifty years. To those who know something of today’s world of diplomacy, Paying Calls in Shangri-La will be an enlightening tour through the way it used to be—and for aspiring Foreign Service officers and students, it will be an inspiration.
