The pilgrimage to Mecca, or Hajj, has been a yearly phenomenon of great importance in Muslim lands for well over one thousand years. Each year, millions of pilgrims from throughout the Dar al-Islam, or Islamic world, stretching from Morocco east to Indonesia, make the trip to Mecca as one of the five pillars of their faith. By the end of the nineteenth century, and the beginning of the twentieth, fully half of all pilgrims making the journey in any given year could come from Southeast Asia. The Longest Journey, spanning eleven modern nation-states and seven centuries, is the first book to offer a history of the Hajj from one of Islam's largest and most important regions.

Australia is one of only ten western countries which resettles refugees recommended by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The federal government has justifiably defended this long-term contribution to assisting the world’s refugees. But how fair is the resettlement process? Does it always--as Amanda Vanstone and her predecessor, Philip Ruddock, insist--help the neediest of all refugees? Drawing on interviews with refugees, policymakers, officials and aid workers in Nairobi, Kakuma, Geneva, Canberra and Melbourne, this book looks at the opportunities and obstacles that face refugees whose homelands are in turmoil.

A Great Novelist, A Learned And Wise Critic, And A Charming Short-Story Writer Can These Three Reside In A Single Person? Yes, But, Of Course, In A Very Few, And E.M. Forster Is Certainly One Of Those Very Few, And That He Is Par Excellence. Any Knowledge Of Modern English Novel Without Even An Acquaintance With Forster Is Absurdly Incomplete. All Of Forster S Six Novels, Perhaps Barring Only Maurice, Have Been And Are Being Printed And Re-Printed In Hundreds Of Thousands Of Copies, And All The Six But Perhaps The Longest Journey Have Been Filmed By Worthy Directors, Such As Lean And Merchant, And The Films Have Received And Are Receiving High And Spontaneous Acclamations. As Said, Forster Is Also An Outstanding Critic And Will Go A Long Way Down The History Of Criticism As Much As He Will Be Remembered As A Highly Fantastic But Excellent Short-Story Writer For A Long Time To Come As He Is Today.This Compendium-Like Book, Split Into Three Volumes, Contains Discussions On All The Six Novels Of Forster Where Angles Fear To Tread, The Longest Journey, A Room With A View, Howards End, Maurice And A Passage To India. Besides, The Study Includes His Twelve Prime Short Stories, And His Critical Acumen And Theories. It Does Not Harbour No, It Carefully Avoids Any Pretension Or Pedantry, But It Comprises Almost All The Matters Relevant To Forsteriana, Plainly But Rather Expatiatingly Treated, So That It Is Expected To Help, Yeoman-Like, Certainly Not The Avant-Garde But The Sophomores. An In-Depth Study Of Forster As A Novelist And As A Critic Provided Herein Adds To The Value Of The Book. Furthermore, Quotations Included In The Appendix, Bibliography And Index Would Serve As Useful Study-Aids For The Readers.

Complete and unabridged paperback edition. The Longest Journey is a bildungsroman by E. M. Forster, first published in 1907. It is the second of Forster's six published novels, following Where Angels Fear to Tread (1905) and preceding A Room With A View (1908) and Howards End (1910). It has a reputation for being the least known of Forster's novels, but was also the author's personal favourite and one of his most autobiographical. It is the only one of Forster's novels not to have received a film or television adaptation. Description from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
