Summary of Heinrich Harrer's Seven Years in Tibet by Everest Media, Pdf
Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had planned to escape from India during the war, but the war suddenly began, and I was taken prisoner. I was then transferred to another camp. With the help of like-minded companions, I collected compasses, money, and maps. #2 We were transferred to another camp in India, and this time we were transported by rail to the biggest POW camp in India. The conditions at the camp changed completely, and we had the Himalayas right in front of us. We thought about escaping over the passes to Tibet. #3 I had originally intended to escape alone, so that I wouldn’t have to consider a companion. But one day, my friend Rolf Magener told me that an Italian general had the same intentions as myself. We quickly joined forces on the basis that I would be responsible for all the planning, and he for the money and equipment. #4 I was often sent out to gather information for the escape plan, and I learned how to climb over the camp’s outer fence and into Marchese’s wing. I cut the wires, and we escaped into the jungle.
Chinese Modernity and Global Biopolitics by Sheldon H. Lu Pdf
This ambitious work is a multimedia, interdisciplinary study of Chinese modernity in the context of globalization from the late nineteenth century to the present. Sheldon Lu draws on Chinese literature, film, art, photography, and video to broadly map the emergence of modern China in relation to the capitalist world-system in the economic, social, and political realms. Central to his study is the investigation of biopower and body politics, namely, the experience of globalization on a personal level. Lu first outlines the trajectory of the body in modern Chinese literature by focusing on the adventures, pleasures, and sufferings of the male (and female) body in the writings of selected authors. He then turns to avant-garde and performance art, tackling the physical self more directly through a consideration of work that takes the body as its very theme, material, and medium. In an exploration of mass visual culture, Lu analyzes artistic reactions to the multiple, uneven effects of globalization and modernization on both the physical landscape of China and the interior psyche of its citizens. This is followed by an inquiry into contemporary Chinese urban space in popular cinema and experimental photography and art. Examples are offered that capture the daily lives of contemporary Chinese as they struggle to make the transition from the vanishing space of the socialist lifestyle to the new capitalist economy of commodities. Lu reexamines the history and implications of China’s belated integration into the capitalist world system before closing with a postscript that traces the genealogy of the term "postsocialism" and points to the real relevance of the idea for the investigation of everyday life in China in the twenty-first century.

We know of the blood and tears provoked by the projects of transformation of the world through war or revolution. Starting from the essay published in 1921 by Walter Benjamin, twentieth century philosophy has been committed to the criticism of violence, even when it has claimed to follow noble ends. But what do we know of the dilemmas, of the “betrayals,” of the disappointments and tragedies which the movement of non-violence has suffered? This book tells a fascinating history: from the American Christian organizations in the first decades of the nineteenth century who wanted to eliminate slavery and war in a non-violent way, to the protagonists of movements—Thoreau, Tolstoy, Gandhi, Capitini, M. L. King, the Dalai Lama—who either for idealism or for political calculation flew the flag of non-violence, up to the leaders of today’s “color revolutions.”
