The West and China in Africa: Civilization without Justice is an outcome of Dr. Alemayehu Mekonnen's personal intellectual struggle, life experience, and an attempt to understand Christ and his message within the cultural context of Africa. The intellectual struggle has to do with the paradoxical reality of Africa's situation. An attempt to reconcile the seemingly irreconcilable situation of Africa tests and stretches anyone's mind beyond limit. According to archaeological and geological findings, Africa is the first habitat of humanity and yet it is the least habitable place in the world today. The continent is extremely rich with natural resources, but it is known for poverty, disease, malnutrition, and starvation. As some Afro-centric scholars argue, Africa is the birthplace of world civilization and yet it is known for destruction. Social instability is rampant; coup d'etat and counter coup d'etat is common. Displacement and the number of refugees are ever increasing. As a person of African origin and now a US citizen, Mekonnen was able to see realities objectively in the eyes of an African and American. This book explores the myth and reality of Western, Eastern, and African dictators' role in the history of Africa.

With fast-paced and entertaining prose, Jeff Burbank captures the true stories from Las Vegas' seedy underbelly that have led to America's 100-year fascination with the aptly named Sin City.

Journalist and human rights activist Janine Roberts was funded for many years by a coalition of US and European churches to work on international human rights frontiers. This work led her to De Beers and its diamond cartel affiliates - after they clashed with an Australian Aboriginal community. She has now been researching and writing on De Beers and the diamond trade for over twenty years, during which time she has made several films, including The Diamond Empire, a feature length documentary shot in six continents, made for the BBC, Australia's ABC and WGBH (Frontline). Although this film was televised and critically acclaimed in the US and Canada, under pressure from De Beers it was severely edited by the BBC for broadcast in the UK and was completely suppressed in some other territories, including Southern Africa and Australia. Bertelsmann AG's British, Australian and Canadian Doubleday imprints then commissioned, paid for and advertised a major work by Ms. Roberts on diamonds - only to drop it at the very last moment, citing the "likelihood of litigation" by "notable and powerful businessmen and politicians." This book reveals everything - and more - that the BBC did not have the guts to broadcast and that Doubleday was scared to print.

As Khoo takes you behind the scenes of a large Kuala Lumpur cabaret and nightclub, be shocked and fascinated by the lives of a host of vividly drawn characters, from the dance hostesses, mamasans, managers, bouncers to the patrons themselves. Be prepared to find yourself in a totally different world, where money plenty of it is king, arousing greed, lust, violence. Yet, be surprised to find out that the players are, in truth, no different from us, the average guys, as they too could love, hate, dream, hope, despair, feel hurt, bleed, laugh and cry as we do. As a passionate storyteller, Khoo spins a tale encompassing other tales covering juvenile delinquency, growing up, deceit versus honesty, love, broken homes, corruption and abuse of power by police officers, rape, blackmail and murder. Be entertained.
