The Art of SoundBwoi Fu: Enter the 37th Chamber focuses on Carl Brown, the eldest child of Mack Brown, a direct descendant of a rogue Archangel. Carl is an influential teenager who wavers between being a positive role model for his younger siblings and establishing his dominance among his peers through violence. In the 37th Chamber, the historical roles that blacks and whites play are reversed. Carl’s Father, Mack, a respected borderline alcoholic, is a city-wide high school football legend that blames all of his life’s shortcomings on black people and passes on his skewed philosophies to his five children through drunken rants and displays of violence. The Art of SoundBwoi Fu is philosophical, blunt, truthful, and insightful. For adventurous readers who have an open mind and want a fresh view of the 3rd Dimension, the novel can lay a foundation for enhanced thought processes and open doors to higher realms of thought. The story encompasses conflict management and sound decision making, as well as the electromagnetically charged battles between the inhabitants of the 37th Chamber who have decided that violence provides them the best solution to their problems.

An unprecedented passion for saving lives swept through late Ming society, giving rise to charitable institutions that transcended family, class, and religious boundaries. Analyzing lecture transcripts, administrative guidelines, didactic tales, and diaries, Joanna Handlin Smith abandons the facile explanation that charity was a response to poverty and social unrest and examines the social and economic changes that stimulated the fervor for doing good. With an eye for telling details and a finesse in weaving the voices of her subjects into her narrative, Smith brings to life the hard choices that five men faced when deciding whom to help, how to organize charitable distributions, and how to balance their communities' needs against the interests of family and self. She thus shifts attention from tired questions about whether the Chinese had a tradition of charity (they did) to analyzing the nature of charity itself. Skillfully organized and engaging, The Art of Doing Good moves from discussions about moral leadership and beliefs to scrutiny of the daily operation of soup kitchens and medical dispensaries, and from examining local society to generalizing about the just use of resources and the role of social networks in charitable giving. Smith's work will transform our thinking about the boundaries between social classes in late imperial China and about charity in general.

Cinematic Tourist Mobilities And The Plight Of Development

It is said that movies have encroached upon social realities creating tourism enclaves based on distortions of history and heritage, or simulations that disregard both. What localities and nation-states value are discarded, suppressed, or modified beyond recognition in neoliberal markets; thus flattening out human experience, destroying natural habitats in the name of development, and putting the future of whole ecosystems at risk. Without disregarding such developmental risks Cinematic Tourist Mobilities and the Plight of Development explores how, en route to any beneficial or eco-destructive development, film tourist industries co-produce atmospheres of place and culture with tourists/film fans, local activists, and nation-states. Drawing on international examples of cinematically-induced tourism and tourismophobic activism, Tzanelli demonstrates how the allegedly unilateral industry-driven ‘design’ of location stands at a crossroads between political structures, systems of capitalist development, and resurgent localised agency. With an interdisciplinary methodological and epistemological portfolio connected to the new mobilities paradigm, this volume will appeal to scholars, students, and practitioners interested in tourism, migration, and urban studies in sociology, anthropology, geography, and international relations.
