Assigned to assist the blacksmith at the worksite forge, Hei-hai proves superhumanly indifferent t...o pain or suffering and yet, eerily sensitive to the natural world.

              Traditional methods of diplomacy are fast becoming antiquated. Secrecy, pomp and elitism may have dictated diplomatic strategy of the Cold War era, but in a digitised twenty-first century, inclusivity and transparency are values of increasing importance. Access to information is ...being democratised for a global citizenry, and nowadays everyone is a potential diplomat. From the handover of Hong Kong to recent high-profile political scandal, former diplomat Kerry Brown explores the chequered relationship between the UK and China, offering fresh insights into the fraught and ever-changing dynamic between these two countries. What's Wrong With Diplomacy? is a call to arms and a probing indictment of diplomacy's failure to adapt to a changing world.

              As medical care improves, Australians are surviving cancer in increasing numbers. But there is little information about life post-treatment - what are some common themes and long-term side effects that people can expect to encounter? With warmth and vigour, After Cancer demystifi...es the aftermath of treatment, delving into what survivorship really entails. Oncologist Dr Ranjana Srivastava also introduces a useful survivorship template. Using available evidence and a good dose of common sense, she outlines how survivors can seize control of their life. By asking the right questions of their providers, survivors can find their way back to clarity. Reviews for Ranjana Srivastava's books 'A moving examination of the way doctors and patients communicate.' The Australian 'Enlightening.' The Age 'A humane treatise exploring the relationship between doctors and their patients.' West Australian

              What do Pope Francis and Xi Jinping have in common? More than you think. Approaching the red Rubik's Cube from a new angle, Jeffrey Wasserstrom challenges conventional commentary on China through eight experimental analogies, finding fresh and surprising ways to look at the Asian... superpower. 'Wasserstrom's Eight Juxtapositions offers more insight into China than many books five times its length. It's fun as well as illuminating, and it not only reports Wassertrom's thinking, it makes readers think.' Craig Calhoun, Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science 'In a series of provocative and playful essays, Jeffrey Wasserstrom's Eight Juxtapositions takes us on a light-hearted and clear-eyed tour of the Chinese landscape. With stops at Tiananmen Square and the Shanghai Expo, the Berlin Wall and the Sistine Chapel, Wasserstrom helps us to see China in a more complex, more realistic, and certainly more interesting way.' Leslie T. Chang, author of Factory Girls: From Village to City in a Changing China
