2007 4770030347 / 9784770030344 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
Japanese for Busy People I: Workbook; includes CD / Edition 3 Japanese for Busy People is the most popular Japanese language textbook ser ies in the world. With over 20 components including texts, workbooks, CDs, videos and teacher's manuals, it is also one of the most comprehensive. Now , a decade after its first revision, the entire series is being redesigned, updated and consolidated to meet the needs of 21st-century students and bu sinesspeople who want to learn natural, spoken Japanese as effectively as p ossible in a limited amount of time. The book features not only a sleek, new design but also a unit structure th at groups thematically linked lessons together, making it easier than ever to learn Japanese. Moreover, it now comes with a CD containing audio for th e dialogues and listening exercises from the text. The exercises in the boo k have also been thoroughly revised to incorporate more comprehension and p roduction tasks.

This first of three volumes introduces "survival Japanese"-the absolute min imum amount of Japanese needed to live in Japan. Thus, the vocabulary and g rammatical items it introduces are limited to about a third of what is typi cally introduced in a first-year course. In addition, the book features not es on Japanese culture intended to expand the learner's understanding of Ja pan, its customs and people. Japanese for Busy People I is available in two formats: romanized and kana. The Romanized Version uses romanized Japanese throughout, with kana in the Opening Dialogu.

JAPANESE FOR BUSY PEOPLE II: THE WORKBOOK FOR THE REVISED 3RD EDITION INCL. 1 CD / EDITION 3, AJALT
87 AJALT JAPANESE FOR BUSY PEOPLE II: THE WORKBOOK FOR THE REVISED 3RD EDITION INCL. 1 CD / EDITION 3
Kodansha USA 2007 4770030355 / 9784770030351 Paperback Very Good/Very Good 
Japanese for Busy People II: The Workbook for the Revised 3rd Edition incl. 1 CD / Edition 3 Whereas Volume I of the Busy People series introduces the most basic patter ns for constructing simple sentences in Japanese, Volume II aims to provide students with the foundational skills for forming more complex expressions that will enable them to further advance their command of the language. As you look through this workbook, therefore, you will probably notice that t he Japanese presented in the back is considerably more difficult than what appears toward the front. Put another way, this means that by successfully completing the materials covered in Volume II and in the workbook, you will be able to proceed from "survival level" all the way to intermediate and e ven advanced fluency. This book has been designed as a supplement: you use it after completing each lesson in the main text in order to confirm your mastery of the grammar presented therein and enhance your ability to understand and carry out communicative tasks related to the topics covered. Toward this end, it has been written to be slightly more advanced, and faster-paced, than the main text while also dealing with topics a little outside those already found in the Target Dialogues and Speaking Practice sections.

2007 477003010X / 9784770030108 Hardcover Very Good 
Japanese for Busy People II: Third Revised Edition incl. 1 CD / Edition 3 Volume I dealt with "survival Japanese" for tourists and other short-term t ravelers and newcomers to Japan. Volume II, meanwhile, turns to the basics of Japanese syntax. The book is by no means only about grammar, however. Ra ther, it is designed to help learners consolidate their understanding of sy ntactical structure through lessons that focus on how to talk about topics relevant to daily life. In addition to serving learners continuing from Vol ume I, Volume II will benefit those who have already studied beginning Japa nese to some extent but wish to brush up on syntax. Major Features of Japanese for Busy People II, Revised 3rd EditionJapanese for Busy People II, Revised 3rd Edition will enable learners to progress sm oothly through the equivalent of the latter half of a typical first-year Ja panese course while gradually building speaking and listening skills. Learners approaching mid-beginner status often find themselves suddenly faced with syntax and vocabulary much more complex than what they have studied before. Such grammar and vocabulary do not appear as frequently in everyday conversation as those words and structures they have learned up to this point, necessitating that they spend ample time on review. Moreover, learners at this stage are expected to become familiar with verb tense and aspect, time expressions, conditional clauses, and other topics that require them to have a solid grasp of context and speaker intent if they are to fully understand the differences in meaning conveyed by each. Such points cannot be mastered by reading thro.

INDIA: THE SIEGE WITHIN, Akbar, M. J.
90 Akbar, M. J. INDIA: THE SIEGE WITHIN
Penguin USA 1985 0140075763 / 9780140075762 Paperback Very Good 
India: The Siege Within succeeds in explaining, as no other book has done, the resilient achievements of India's secular democracy as well as its vuln erability and failures. As such, it makes essential reading for everyone wi shing to understand today's India. Here M.J. Akbar, one of India's most distinguished journalists, discusses the origins and nature of the strains on Indian unity which have deep roots in history. Taking 1947 as his springboard, he provides a full historical, political and cultural survey of the main pressure points, and brings his analysis up to date to include the removal of Farooq Abdullah in Kashmir, an account of his meeting with Bhindranwale, the army operation at the Golden Temple, the assassination of Mrs. Indira Gandhi, and their implications for the future. Rising fundamentalism, separatism, the consequences of Partition, unease in Kashmir- on every side it seems that India's democratic unity is continually at risk.

The skirmish in the Rann of Kutch and the 1965 war with India, the Tashkent Conference, Bhutto's walk-out from the Security Council, Bhutto's rise and fall, and the nuclear deal with France - the author writes of these as a witness, and tells the inside story in this book. Blending description, analysis and anecdote, Iqbal Akhund's account casts a fresh light on these critical and still controversial events in Pakistan's history. There are perspective pen-pictures of the eminent personalities whom he met or had to deal with - Ayub and Shustri, Bhutto and Ziaul Haq, Nasser of Egypt and Tito of Yugoslavia. The book begins in the declining heyday of Britain's Indian Empire and describes the way things were under what the author calls the "Brown Raj". It outlines the author's personal reaction to the concept of Pakistan. It ends in Lebanon, in the midst of the civil war and Israeli invasion, drawing a thought-provoking parallel with Pakistan.

RASHOMON AND OTHER STORIES, Akutagawa, Ryunosuke
93 Akutagawa, Ryunosuke RASHOMON AND OTHER STORIES
Tuttle Publishing 2001 0804814570 / 9780804814577 Paperback Very Good 
This fascinating collection gave birth to a new paradigm when Akira Kurosaw a made famous Akutagawa's disturbing tale of seven people recounting the sa me incident from shockingly different perspectives.Writing at the beginning of the twentieth century, Ryunosuke Akutagawa created disturbing stories o ut of Japan's cultural upheaval. Whether his fictions are set centuries pas t or close to the present, Akutagawa was a modernist, writing in polished, superbly nuanced prose subtly exposing human needs and flaws. "In a Grove," which was the basis for Kurosawa's classic film Rashomon, tells the chilli ng story of the killing of a samurai through the testimony of witnesses, in cluding the spirit of the murdered man. The fable-like "Yam Gruel" is an ac count of desire and humiliation, but one in which the reader's sympathy is thoroughly unsettled. And in "The Martyr," a beloved orphan raised by Jesui t priests is exiled when he refuses to admit that he made a local girl preg nant. He regains their love and respect only at the price of his life. All six tales in the collection show Akutagawa as a master storyteller and an e xciting voice of modern Japanese literature.

96 Alai RED POPPIES
Houghton Mifflin 2002 0618119647 / 9780618119646 First Hardcover Fine/Fine 
A tight clean first edition/printing, protected in a new brodart wrapper, n ot price clipped/ex library or a book of the month edition. The sweeping epic novel Red Poppies, by Tibetan author Alai, is set in eastern Tibet in the middle of the last century. It chronicles the waning days of the once-powerful Tibetan chieftains and the rise of the Communist Chinese state. The tale is narrated by the son of one of the most powerful chieftains, a son considered an idiot by his family. But this supposed idiot consolidates his family's power and wealth with peasant good sense and cunning. And cunning is what is required to survive in this brutal world, where tribal revenge is exacted by ordering decapitations and the cutting off of tongues and ears. There's plenty of lusty sex in this picaresque novel, as well as bloody battles, devastating earthquakes, and the political maneuvering of Tibetan monks. The writing, translated from Chinese by Howard Goldblatt and Sylvia Li-chun Lin, is beautiful. In one strange and wonderful scene, mice are drawn to an opium processing shed by the intoxicating aroma; they gather on the rafters, swoon into the vats, and then are cooked and eaten as delicacies.

BLUE SUBURBIA: ALMOST A MEMOIR, Albanese, Laurie
97 Albanese, Laurie BLUE SUBURBIA: ALMOST A MEMOIR
Harper Perennial 2004 0060565632 / 9780060565633 Paperback Near Fine 
Blue Suburbia is a searing memoir so fresh, original, and honest that it wi ll break your heart and renew your faith in the human spirit. With each spare stroke of her pen, Laurie Lico Albanese paints a vivid port rait of the blue-collar landscape of her childhood -- rusted swing sets, au to body shops, greasy hands, home improvements -- taking readers along for the wild, treacherous ride that leads to her escape. Her mother may stand s ilently at the sink year after year, or lie in the basement weeping, but Al banese is determined to flee the deadening certainty of her parents' lives. Her story does not disappoint us. By turns haunting, hilarious, tragic, and romantic, Blue Suburbia is the chronicle of a determined young woman who overcomes family limitations, socio-economic obstacles, and personal fears to build a happy -- and blessedly ordinary -- life. Written entirely in free verse, Blue Suburbia's cadence is a steady, rhythmic heartbeat, pulsing with pain, rebellion, love, and triumph. This is the story many of us might tell, if we had the courage.
