The influence of traditional Asian design is far-reaching, and today, contemporary Asian interior designers and architects have developed a new kind of modernism that references the appropriate elements of their own traditions. The New East is the first comprehensive volume to present this ongoing style revolution and is sure to inspire anyone looking to add harmony and sensuality to their homes. Rich photographs brilliantly showcase Asian designs for living. Here you'll find everything you need to know about combining Western design motifs with Eastern traditional elements, such as the Japanese sliding screens; creating harmonious balance between the indoor and the outdoor space; and selecting specific materials that make up the traditional design form in Asia, such as bamboo and stone. This book teaches how to adapt to the Asian design philosophy of reducing a space to its core essentials and thus creating a natural and simple minimalist look, ultimately adding a sense of serenity and tranquility to your space.

Ni hao! I'm Angelina Zhang, and in this book, I bring you the inside scoop about Chinese girls today. What do we look for in a partner? What's a typical dating relationship in China? And even what do we like to do in bed? I was born in Shanghai and now live in New York. Unlike most Chinese girls, I have no problem telling you all the dirty secret details we normally keep hidden. I want you to know. I wrote this book to get those things off my chest, and correct people's misconceptions. Not all Chinese girls are Suzie Wong sexpots. But we're also not as prim and proper and sexless as you might think. The truth is a whole lot more interesting. In this book, I tell you how we're brought up, how we have our first experiences with guys, and some of our particular turn-ons and turn-offs, which are totally different from what you might be used to. I also give you real actionable steps for meeting Chinese girls and getting them into marriage or just into bed, whichever you prefer. I even tell you exactly what to expect in the bedroom. But this book isn't all about sex. I cover a lot of Chinese language, culture, and social psychology. I tell you why, for example, reading one Chinese girl's story will be instructive for finding out about all Chinese girls. And I also tell you how you can use China's peculiar beauty standards to your own advantage. Learn something, have a few laughs, gain some new insights, and enjoy.

In the space of a few months, across Asia, a miracle became a nightmare. This was the Asian Financial Crisis of 1995–98. In this economic crisis hundreds of people died in rioting, political strong men were removed and hundreds of billions of dollars were lost by investors. This crisis saw the US dollar value of some Asian stock markets decline by ninety percent. Why did almost no one see it coming? The Asian Financial Crisis 1995–98 charts Russell Napier’s personal journey during that crisis as he wrote daily for institutional investors about an increasingly uncertain future. Relying on contemporaneous commentary, it charts the mistakes and successes of investors in the battle for investment survival in Asia from 1995–98. This is not just a guide for investors navigating financial markets, but also an explanation of how this crisis created the foundations of an age of debt that has changed the modern world.
