Since the 18th century, people from Europe, Africa, India and China have made Mauritius their home. The result is a charming mix of cultural and religious traditions, against the backdrop of a tropical paradise. The dramatic landscapes of Mauritius feature high mountain peaks, white beaches and untouched rainforest, as well as rich fauna and flora. This is a welcoming country, where the people live in harmony with their natural surroundings. This selection of postcards from André de Kervern's collection is a timeless record of Mauritius. Each chapter focuses on a different region including the north, south, centre and the capital Port Louis, as well as on the island's people. Classic scenes of sugar cane plantations, railways, parades, horse races and verdant landscapes were all widely circulated fragments of cinéma-vérité. Complete with detailed captions and essays by Yvan Martial, these postcards offer glimpses of life in Mauritius from the 19th and 20th centuries.

This evocative collection of more than 150 picture postcards offers a fascinating insight into Japanese society in Singapore in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Based on the Lim Shao Bin Collection of Japanese historical materials at the National Library Singapore, this important study illuminates new historical perspectives on the Japanese community as well as related subjects like tourism, war and empire in pre-World War II Singapore.

Malaysia is one of the most intriguing countries in Asia in many respects. It consists of several distinct areas, not only geographically but ethnically as well; along with Malays and related groups, the country has a very large Indian and Chinese population. The spoken languages obviously vary at home, although Bahasa Malaysia is the official language and nearly everyone speaks English. There is also a mixture of religions, with Islam predominating among the Malays and others, Hinduism and Sikhism among the Indians, mainly Daoism and Confucianism among the Chinese, but also some Christians as well as older indigenous beliefs in certain places. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Malaysia contains a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Malaysia.

Dainty Japanese Or Yellow Peril

 Dainty Japanese  Or Yellow Peril

The "Yellow Peril" is a wide spread term and widely used stereotype.

The "Yellow Peril" is a wide spread term and widely used stereotype. How did it emerge and how did it develope? During the first part of the 20th century postcards became the most important pictorial mass medium. A fair number of postcards deal with Japan regarded by the West as an exotic country with dainty people. But since Japan declared war on all major Western powers between 1900 and 1945 the postcards changed. The Japanese are portrayed as dainty, funny soldiers by nations not involved in the wars, as heroic fighters by their allies or as ruthless, barbaric "Yellows" by their enemies. The "Yellow Peril", a new term, had been created - presently used again in the context of China's role as an emerging world power. Book jacket.
