This is the first book in a series in written in both English and Tongan about growing up in Tonga in the nineteen fifties and sixties. It's about village children playing marbles including with the hard shell fruit nuts used traditionally as well as the glass and ceramic marbles introduced by Europeans. The rules of each type of game are included as well as what happens when someone decides to break into a game and run off with everyone else's marbles. Each story is told in English and Tongan to assist readers to develop their skills in both languages. Tapani Mangisi has written it especially for those Tongans living overseas who are keen to strengthen their cultural ties and to preserve the Tongan language. He hopes to encourage other Tongans to share their stories about growing up in Tonga with the younger people in their families and their community.

Since the early 1990s, Sean Landers has made some of the most fascinating and repeatedly irritating art in circulation. The polar opposites of tormented self-doubt and endless self-aggrandizement run like threads through the artist's practice, as do several masks of failure that Landers uses as a strategy to preserve himself from impending loser-status. As the artist puts it, "My original idea was to make conceptual art entertaining, sloppy, emotional, human, and funny. Over the years I got so far out on this conceptual limb that I went around full circle until I was a traditional artist again. I tried to be ironic about it but eventually became sincere. Now I'm a happy victim of my own charade." This monograph presents an overview of Lander's oeuvre and includes works from 1992 to the present.
