A comprehensive, contemporary portrait of China's culinary landscape and the geography and history that has shaped it, with more than 300 recipes. Vaulting from ancient taverns near the Yangtze River to banquet halls in modern Taipei, All Under Heaven is the first cookbook in English to examine all 35 cuisines of China. Drawing on centuries' worth of culinary texts, as well as her own years working, eating, and cooking in Taiwan, Carolyn Phillips has written a spirited, symphonic love letter to the flavors and textures of Chinese cuisine. With hundreds of recipes--from simple Fried Green Onion Noodles to Lotus-Wrapped Spicy Rice Crumb Pork--written with clear, step-by-step instructions, All Under Heaven serves as both a handbook for the novice and a source of inspiration for the veteran chef. — Los Angeles Times: Favorite Cookbooks of 2016

In this succinct yet ample work, Zhao Tingyang as one of China's most distinguished and respected intellectuals, provides a profoundly original philosophical interpretation of China's story. Over the past few decades, the question where did China come from? has absorbed the thoughts of many of China's best historians. Zhao, keenly aware of the persistent and pernicious asymmetry in the prevailing way scholars have gone about theorizing China according to Western concepts and categories, has tasked both Chinese and Western scholars alike to "rethink China." To this end, Zhao introduces what he terms a distinctively Chinese centripetal "whirlpool" model of world order to interpret the historical progression of China's "All-Under-Heaven" tianxia identity construction on the central plain of China. In this book, Zhao forwards a novel and compelling thesis on not only how we should understand China, but also until recently, how China has understood itself.

For nearly two thousand years the Chinese Emporer, self-proclaimed ruler of `All under Heaven', demanded the obedience not only of his subjects within China but also of peoples throughout the known world. Maps played a crucial role in the administration of this vast system of states. Charts offoreign lands and images of the `barbarians' that populated them presented the world as the Chinese wanted it to be seen: with the Middle Kingdom as lord and other states as vassals paying tribute to it.In this richly illustrated history, Richard J. Smithshows how the Chinese depicted foreign lands and peoples in maps and encyclopedias through the centuries. He discusses the debates surrounding the production of maps, as well as their technical aspects and political, military and administrativeuses. Reproductions of many of the most beautiful and noteworthy maps of the Chinese world accompany the text.More than simple refelections of the lands and peoples they depict, these maps and illustrations are documents that reveal the evolving values of the grand and powerful society that produced them

Pearl S. Buck is a humanitarian writer and her writings are of moral issues that deal with many aspects of the sordid atmosphere of the modern world and the inner torments of mankind. Her novels are about problems exist in the real society where she lived and wrote her novels. This book is a thematic study of two of Buck’s novels: All Under Heaven and The Devil Never Sleeps. In All Under Heaven Pearl Buck depicts the bad consequences of the Cold War on people’s life and criticizes the racial discrimination caused by the Cold War and tries to reduce that racial superiority because she believed that all under heaven are one. Also, she enlightens us about dilemmas faced by masses of American women. She criticizes women’s passive role and doing nothing in order to improve their situation in a society dominated by men. In The Devil Never Sleeps, Buck presents people’s sufferings and wretched life because of communism. She shows that most of the revolutionary parties’ promises are not true. They promise their followers a perfect life, demolishing of classes and people will be given whatever they want or wish. But, only then, people will discover that this is not really what they were looking for, or wished.

From the former New York Times Asia correspondent and author of China's Second Continent, an incisive investigation of China's ideological development as it becomes an ever more aggressive player in regional and global diplomacy. For many years after its reform and opening in 1978, China maintained an attitude of false modesty about its ambitions. That role, reports Howard French, has been set aside. China has asserted its place among the global heavyweights, revealing its plans for pan-Asian dominance by building its navy, increasing territorial claims to areas like the South China Sea, and diplomatically bullying smaller players. Underlying this attitude is a strain of thinking that casts China's present-day actions in decidedly historical terms, as the path to restoring the dynastic glory of the past. If we understand how that historical identity relates to current actions, in ways ideological, philosophical, and even legal, we can learn to forecast just what kind of global power China stands to become--and to interact wisely with a future peer. Steeped in deeply researched history as well as on-the-ground reporting, this is French at his revelatory best.

When Robert Sloan and Heidi Faust first meet mutual attraction follows soon thereafter. Rob, a marital and sex therapist has no idea that the attractive young woman with whom he has made a date has been for three years a high class call girl. The couple spends most of their free time together and their love for each other only grows deeper. Heidi, fearful she might run into one of her customers, and fearful of the impact it will have on their relationship concludes that she must tell Rob about her past. Rob, although deeply wounded concludes that his love for Heidi is too great and prostitute or not, he will not give her up. When he compares his sexual experience with Heidis, he is forced to confront uncertainties and anxieties he has not faced before. Heidi, with only limited success, does her best to assure Rob that his fears and anxieties are unwarranted. The couple finds marital bliss which only intensifies during their three years together until, that is, Heidi informs Rob she is returning to her profession as a call girl. Then all hell breaks loose. In this poignant love story, two people who could not be further apart in their professional backgrounds embark on an unlikely love affair that without warning, comes to an abrupt end. Love is replaced with hatred which leads to both learning the truth not only about each other, but also about themselves. In the end love proves to be far more enduring than hatred and a love which has never cooled once again characterizes Robs and Heidis marriage.
