At the beginning of her travels to China in 1998, Rosemarie Zens found a predominantly agrarian multi-ethnic state and initially photographed mainly landscapes and everyday scenes in urban and rural situations that reminded her of pre-modern times in our Western world. Within a time-frame of twenty years, ground-breaking developments took place. The memorable photographs show how China increasingly orients itself towards Western culture and how homogenizing forces such as science, technology and the global market influence individual life.

From Benjamin Bunny to Peter Cottontail, the Velveteen Rabbit to the Flopsy Bunnies, the Rabbit of Caerbannog to Bugs Bunny and Roger Rabbit, the winsome long-eared animal is a permanent fixture of our childhoods. We know rabbits for their place in our stories, myths, and legends, and also for how they helped us learn to tie our shoes. In this richly illustrated book, Victoria Dickenson explores the natural and cultural history of the most familiar of the lagomorphs. Tracing the history of the species, Dickenson brings to life the giant extinct rabbits of Minorca and the tiny endangered Volcano rabbits of Mexico while focusing on the European rabbit. She explains how humans became this particular rabbit’s greatest predator, coveting its fur and flesh, and how they distributed rabbits to such far-flung places as New Zealand and Australia to provide food and sport for settlers. Dickenson also examines the paradox of the rabbit as prey and trickster who outwits all rivals, as cuddly companion for children and symbol of unbridled animal passion. She looks at the use of the rabbit’s foot to charm away evil, celebrates the Year of the Rabbit, and discovers the Jade Moon Rabbit, who lives on the moon. Hopping from B’rer Rabbit to the Energizer Bunny, Rabbit is the perfect gift for anyone who loves these intelligent, adorable creatures.

Collected Writings Of Flora Belle Jan

Web Text This is the first time the writings of Flora Belle Jan, the Chinese American flapper and writer, are assembled into a single volume. The book consists of some one hundred pieces of prose and poetry, available from microfilm of newspapers and magazines that ceased publication prior to 1950. A native of Fresno, California, Flora Belle Jan was born in 1906. She lived above Yet Far Low, a restaurant owned by her parents, at 1007 China Alley. Her world at home was Chinese. Her world at school, with teachers and classmates, was American. Many of her classmates were also children of immigrant parents. Her own parents, Jan Chong and Jan Yom, had separately emigrated from Southern China in the late 1800s. Her classmates parents included immigrants from Ireland, Italy, Russia, England, Mexico, and Armenia. In her early years, the country of origin of the parents did not hinder the formation of close friendships among girls with shared interests and activities. Flora Jan and her friends enjoyed writing poems and stories, and aspired to careers in literature and journalism. She received encouragement from Grace May North, editor of the Sunnyside Club column in The Fresno Herald. Jans earliest works appeared in this column. Her topics were typically American, involving for example, a selfish prince, a faithful dog, a poor newsgirl, and poems about patriotism. In only two stories, The Chinese Girls Valentine, and The Contest, did she introduce a Chinese connection. Another important person in Flora Jans life was Amy Purcell, Superintendent of the Baptist Chinese Mission in Fresno. She recognized Floras talents. With Miss Purcells help, the Chinese Students Club of Fresno published The Trailmaker. Flora Jan, the only female member of the Club, played a major role in the publication. Flora Jans parents did not support her desire to further her education. She worked at various jobs and at age 18, earned money for college by writing feature stories for The San Francisco Examiner. For several of these stories, Jan invented the female character Ming Toy. Among eight children in her family, Flora Jan was the only one to earn a college degree and to pursue a career in journalism. Although Flora Jan attended the University of California, Berkeley for only one semester in the autumn of 1925, she left a strong impression on those who knew her. Her reputation as a prolific young writer, as well as her beauty and flamboyant flapper life style was remembered forty years later. Your mother was the Belle of Berkeley, was the remark said to my sister, Fiore Wang, who attended the University of California, Berkeley and there from graduated. Flora Jan transferred to the University of Chicago, where she studied English literature and graduated with honors in 1927. The impetus for her transfer to Chicago was due to Professor Robert E. Park. He directed the Survey of Race Relations project, and believed that Jan would succeed in assimilation into main stream white society. An analysis of Parks project and Jans participation may be found in the treatise, Thinking Orientals, by Henry Yu Most of Jans writings during her years in Chicago appeared in The Chinese Students Monthly, a magazine founded in 1904 and published by the Chinese Students Alliance in the United States of America. In her fictional works, Romance on the Roof and Transplanted Flower Blossoms, Flora Jan created humorous and delicate inter-racial romances. She served in the capacity of a Contributing Editor at first, and later became an Associate Editor of the Monthly. She also sold stories to the Chicago Daily News and to the magazine Real Detective Tales. In 1932, Flora Jan and her husband, Charles Wang, left Chicago to go to China. Probably the most compelling reason for their move was financial. Although Charles had earned a Ph.D. degree in psychology at the University of Chicago, he could not obtain

A basic introduction to the ancient system of astrology based on the Chinese lunar calendar from the author of Simple Feng Shui. Introduced by the emperor Huang Ti between 2700 and 2600 B.C.E., Chinese astrology is based on the culture’s lunar calendar, which is made up of five cycles of twelve years each, with a complete cycle taking sixty years. According to legend, Buddha summoned all the animals to come to him before he departed earth, but only twelve came to pay their respects. To honor them, he named a year after each animal in the order that they appeared: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Boar. These became the twelve astrological signs that determine your personality, behavior, and proclivities according to the year and time of day you were born. This age-old practice tells you what to expect—in life, career, and romance—in the coming years. Featuring illustrations and tables, this guide makes this exacting science and art of divination and personal analysis accessible to Western readers.

The Rabbit on the Face of the Moon is a collection of articles on mythology in the Mesoamerican tradition by Alfredo Lopez Austin, one of the foremost scholars of ancient Mesoamerican thought. Their span is diverse: myths and names, eclipses, stars, left and right, Mexica origins, Aztec incantations, animals, and the incorporation of Christian elements into the living mythologies of Mexico. The title essay relates the Mesoamerican myth explaining why there is a rabbit on the moon's face to a Buddhist image and suggests the importance of the profound mythical concepts presented by each image. The eighteen pieces in this volume are unified by their basis in Mesoamerican tradition and provide a fascinating look into a system of milennia-old legends and beliefs.

Bringing together a medley of stories, myths, and folklore Gary Varner shares a fascination and respect for humankind's early and contemporary cultures and wonders at similarities across the board. Here, he focuses on "Little People" and giants, animals and were-creatures, and the odd, helpful or threatening ways imputed to our earthly companions including dogs and cats, bats and spiders, and the stories people have told each other about them since time immemorial. Gary Varner has performed a valuable service in these books. [Presenting] lore from about the world, a collector's hoard of traditions rich and strange, ... Varner shows there really are obvious and puzzling similarities between widely separated cultures. Gary Varner has pointed the way to some important cross-cultural readings in the ageless themes of stone and water. - Jeremy Harte, Curator of the Bourne Hall Museum, Surrey, England, in Northern Earth magazine, #103, 2005 Menhirs, Dolmen and Circles of Stone is an excellent guide to large-scale magical stones and stone magic. This book is a must for anyone interested in megalithic sites. Most highly recommended. -PanGaia Magazine, United States As with other books by the same author, this is a book based upon broad research into the subject, stretching across the world. What results is a fascinating weave of stories and images, descriptions of sites and associated tales, that leaves a sense of a thousand deities whispering in the air. Because it is so broad a sweep, the positive outcome is an overreaching perspective of the patterns and commonalities held between human communities - our ancestors - all around the world. The book is a sound overview and provocation toresearch more deeply ourselves, to find alternative visions, tales and interpretations, to find out more about the sacred currents, their depths and importance - both to our ancestors and to ourselves. The author's notations are comprehensive, allowing us easily to follow the clues. A valuable piece of work. -The Druid Network, England * Gary R. Varner is a lecturer and writer on folklore and early religions. He is author of several popular books comparing legends and beliefs around the world, including The Mythic Forest, the Green Man & the Spirit of Nature (Algora 2006); Menhirs, Dolmen and Circles of Stone: The Folklore and Magic of Sacred Stone (Algora 2005); and Sacred Wells: A Study in the History, Meaning, and Mythology of Holy Wells. His approach incorporates details from ancient cultures and from Native American, UK and European, Asian, South Pacific and African folklore. Varner is a member of the American Folklore Society.
