              A Brief History of Thailand tells the vibrant story of Thailand's emergence--from its ancient beginnings to the present day. Thailand has transformed from a traditional kingdom to democratic constitutional monarchy, along the way becoming a prosperous Buddhist state, powerhouse i...n Southeast Asian affairs and dream travel destination. Told through an accessible narrative, this book covers Thailand's dramatic history, including: The true story of Anna Leonowens, the British governess hired to teach the children of King Mongkut in the early 1860s (later fictionalized in Margaret Landon's bestselling novel Anna and the King of Siam and turned into a hit Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, The King and I) The invasion of Thailand by the Japanese and construction of the Bridge on the River Kwai made famous by the Pierre Boulle novel and Oscar-winning film The mysterious death of King Ananda Mahidol, murdered in his bed in 1946, and a source of controversy ever since The development of Thailand into a leading tourist mecca, which began during the Vietnam War when it was used as rowdy destination for American servicemen on breaks The 70-year reign of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world's longest-serving monarch who was born in the U.S., educated in Switzerland, loved to play the saxophone and was idolized by his people The bloodless Siamese Revolution of 1932 that established the first constitutional monarchy in Asia overnight Author and historian Richard A. Ruth also explains how Thailand became the only country in Southeast Asia to resist European domination, how Thai Buddhism has wrought profound political and social changes, how Thai cuisine has conquered the world and, more recently, how the consequences of globalization and military rule continue to reshape Thai society. Written for anyone with an interest in history, travel or Thai culture, this latest book in the Brief History series will transport readers to faraway lands filled with fascinating stories.

              The highly anticipated next book in Tuttle's Stories for Language Learners series is here! This book presents 22 classic Chinese proverbs and the traditional tale behind them. The stories are bilingual, with the Chinese and English texts presented on facing pages. Each includes a...n explanation of how the proverb is used today, cultural notes, vocabulary and discussion questions. Audio recordings of the tales by native speakers are included, giving students a chance to advance their pronunciation and comprehension. Some of the proverbs featured in this collection include: Painting the Eyes on the Dragon Based on the story of a famous court painter in 6th century China who painted dragons, this proverb refers to the finishing touches needed to bring a work of art or literature to life. In a discussion, it refers to the final statements used to clinch the argument. Waiting for Rabbits by a Tree Stump Based on an ancient folktale about a foolish farmer who sees a rabbit kill itself in front of him by running into a tree stump, then gives up tilling his field to wait for more rabbits by the stump. This saying is applied to people who wait passively for luck to strike again. It also refers to impractical people who stick to one way of doing things only because it has worked for them once in the past. Pure Water Has No Fish; Perfect People Have No Friends Many versions of this historical tale exist. The one told here is about a 2nd century AD official sent to govern a far-flung outpost on the Silk Road who is fastidious in applying strict rules and thereby causes the local people to rebel against him. In the professional world, it is used to refer to people who do not like to work with an overly strict supervisor or colleague. Whether being used in a classroom or for self-study, Chinese Stories for Language Learners provides an educational and entertaining way for intermediate Mandarin learners to expand their vocabulary and understanding of the language.

              A world of dew And within every dewdrop A world of struggle The iconic three-line haiku form is increasingly popular today as people embrace its simplicity and grace-and its connections to the Japanese ethos of mindfulness and minimalism. Say more with fewer words. This practical... guide by poet and teacher Bruce Ross shows you how to capture a fleeting moment, like painting a picture with words, and how to give voice to your innermost thoughts, feelings, and observations. You don't have to be a practiced poet or writer to write your own haiku, and this book shows you how. In this book, aspiring poets will find: Accessible, easy-to-replicate examples and writing prompts A foreword that looks at the state of haiku today as the form continues to expand worldwide An introduction to related Japanese haiku forms such as tanka, haiga, renga, haibun, and senryu A listing of international journals and online resources Do you want to tell a story? Give haibun a try. Maybe you want to express a fleeting feeling? A tanka is the perfect vehicle. Are you more visual than verbal? Then a haiga, or illustrated haiku, is the ideal match. Finally, a renga is perfect as a group project or to create with friends, passing a poem around, adding line after line, and seeing what your group effort amounts to. Ross walks readers through the history and form of haiku, before laying out what sets each Japanese poetic form apart. Then it's time to turn to your notebook and start drafting some verse of your own!
