Nine Dragons Excerpt :

After what seems like a routine murder investigation, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch finds himself in Hong Kong facing the highest-stakes case of his life: bringing his kidnapped daughter home. Fortune Liquors is a small shop in a tough South L.A. neighborhood, a store Bosch has known for years. The murder of John Li, the store's owner, hits Bosch hard, and he promises Li's family that he'll find the killer. The world Bosch steps into next is unknown territory. He brings in a detective from the Asian Gang Unit for help with translation -- not just of languages but also of the cultural norms and expectations that guided Li's life. He uncovers a link to a Hong Kong triad, a lethal and far-reaching crime ring that follows many immigrants to their new lives in the U.S. And instantly his world explodes. The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity. Featuring ebook bonus materials including an in-depth interview with the author about writing "Nine Dragons," photos from his exciting travels while writing the book, and a link to an online promotional video.!--EndFragment--

River of Nine Dragons Excerpt :

The River of Nine Dragons (Song Cuu Long) is the name given to the nine "tails" or distributaries of the Mekong River that flow through the thick, verdant, watery world of the Mekong Delta in Southern Vietnam and Cambodia. The first of these to break away from the Mekong is the Bassac, starting in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh and making up one of the star of four converging waterways upon which Phnom Penh sits. Jack Logan, a naïve country boy from North Carolina, joins the Army with his cousin Joseph and becomes a U.S. Army Ranger. The Vietnam War is about to change his life forever. Like so many warriors of the past, he has learned to love the effects of war, the adrenaline rush, and the heat of battle. He rediscovered a love that he thought he lost along the way, while discovering a new love in the process. Now he's torn between the love of war and the love for two women. Who will he choose, the War, Rana or Maya?

Land of Nine Dragons Excerpt :

Most accounts of contemporary Vietnam take the retrospective approach: veterans or correspondents return for the first time since the war and compare what they see today with memories of combat tours. They dwell on their own past history, telling us little of this ancient country and its people today. The objective of this book, however, is to take a much different look at Vietnam, to examine the nation more as a modern entity than as a chapter of American military history, to provide a vehicle for mutual understanding. What, indeed, is Vietnam today, this nation of roughly seventy million people, most of them ethnic Viets, but with a significant number of hilltribe minorities, among them the Black Thai, White Thai, Meo, Muong, and Hmong of the Northern Highlands? As the many photographs in this book so beautifully show, this small country covers an incredibly diverse landscape, ranging from tropical beaches and mangrove swamps to picture-postcard rice paddies and impenetrable rainforest. With one of Asia's least developed economies - yet with a historic architecture that rivals any in the East - Vietnam today is once again under intense foreign scrutiny, by entrepreneurs from Japan, Europe, and, lately, America. A nation of contradictions, Vietnam is a Communist state with a government under rising pressure to reform both its economic and basic human rights policy. In chapters organized geographically, beginning in Hanoi, working south toward Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), and ending in the Mekong Delta, the author and the photographer explore the country through firsthand encounters with Vietnamese of every sort, showing Vietnam in a 1990s context - the culture, the geography, the resources, the landscapes, and the people. They provide a perfect introduction for the traveler to a country now experiencing a resurgence of tourist and business interest.

Historical Dictionary of Chinese Theater Excerpt :

There is a sense of timelessness in the Chinese theater: ever since its maturation, its format has not changed in any significant way. Chinese Theater matured into its final format in the 13th century and flourished during the Yuan, Ming, and Qing Dynasties. It is a unique, exclusive, and self-sufficient system, whose evolution has received little influence from the West and whose influence on Western theaters has been minimal and often misinterpreted. It is essentially a performer's theater; the actors attract the audience with splendid performances perfected through many years of rigorous training. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Chinese Theater contains a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 1,500 cross-referenced entries on performers, directors, producers, designers, actors, theaters, dynasties, and emperors. This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Chinese theater.
