No railway journey on Earth can equal the Trans-Siberian between Moscow and Vladivostock. It is not just its vast length and the great variety of the lands and climes through which it passes. It is not just its history as the line that linked the huge territories which are Russia together. It is a dream which calls countless travellers to the adventure of the longest railway in the world. From the birth aboard of Rudolf Nureyev to the childhood obsession with the railway of Lesley Blanch, to the weariness that eventually overcame Paul Theroux, to the excitement of the author’s own journey, this revised and updated collection of travellers’ accounts brings together emotions, descriptions and humour from a century of travel. This new edition of a classic anthology takes us through the tremendous achievement of the railway’s construction across harsh, unsettled lands through the earliest journeys of Western travellers and the trains on which they travelled, and their descriptions of fellow travellers, food, scenery, domestic arrangements, adventures on and off the train, convicts, revolution and war as the train carried them through a lonely, lovely landscape. The barrier of Lake Baikal was crossed by a British-built ice-breaker, put together on the lakeside until the link around the deep water and through the first tunnels of the route was completed. The railway played – and still plays – a huge part in holding this vast country together.

Sandakan Brothel No 8 Journey Into The History Of Lower Class Japanese Women

This is a pioneering work on "karayuki-san", impoverished Japanese women sent abroad to work as prostitutes from the 1860s to the 1920s. The narrative follows the life of one such prostitute, Osaki, who is persuaded as a child of ten to accept cleaning work in Sandakan, North Borneo, and then forced to work as a prostitute in a Japanese brothel, one of the many such brothels that were established throughout Asia in conjunction with the expansion of Japanese business interests. Yamazaki views Osaki as the embodiment of the suffering experienced by all Japanese women, who have long been oppressed under the dual yoke of class and gender. This tale provides the historical and anthropological context for understanding the sexual exploitation of Asian women before and during the Pacific War and for the growing flesh trade in Southeast Asia and Japan today. Young women are being brought to Japan with the same false promises that enticed Osaki to Borneo 80 years ago. Yamazaki Tomoko, who herself endured many economic and social hardships during and after the war, has devoted her life to documenting the history of the exchange of women between Japan and other Asian countries since 1868. She has worked directly with "karayuki-san", military comfort women, war orphans, repatriates, women sent as picture brides to China and Manchuria, Asian women who have wed into Japanese farming communities, and Japanese women married to other Asians in Japan.

Set Your Compass To The Stars touches the human spirit and frees the mind to search for the truth that is hidden. A Native American proverb says, “Everyone has history.” We must embrace all cultures and learn the history of the entire population if we are to allow change to evolve. The world is rapidly changing, but many things have stayed the same and must be reckoned with so we don’t repeat the same mistakes. “If we don’t know our history we are doomed to repeat what was done before.” Enclosed are images brought by new writers and some seasoned word-workers to bring us to reality.

I invite you to journey deep within, to where your soul finds harmony with its Creator, to that sacred place where true communion speaks to you through the same eternal vibration that creates the universe – that sacred place where the flame of spirit resonates in union with the vibration of your soul. Flowing within the memory of each of us is the knowledge of life, carried within the vibration of our soul as Infinite Presence. This natural frequency is awakened as you commune with the Heart of God through all of your senses – mind, body and spirit. It is in this place of pure communion that your soul becomes the vibration of light. This precious vibrational light takes you home to the silence between life’s ebb and flow and supports you in becoming the spark of life that joins spirit and matter into wholeness, beauty and wisdom. In this form of consciousness, there is nothing to let go of and nothing to process; you need only resonate with Infinite Presence and hold all aspects of your life as necessary ingredients to awaken your inherent wholeness. Go gently on your journey through the seven chakras into the Sacred Realms of Creation, and know that you are the pulse of life, living in the Heart of God. You are the radiant light that dances through the tree tops and you are the depth that embraces all the ethereal realms. You are the breath of life and you are the echo in the ancient and the vastness of the endless sky.
