Winner of the National Geographic Reader's Award 2018 Shortlisted for the Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year 2018 Shortlisted for the BBC Countryfile Magazine Country Book of the Year 2018 'For all the islomaniacs out there, Patrick Barkham's Islander looks unmissable' Robert Macfarlane 'Brimming with nature, this is a fitting tribute to the strangeness and beauty of our British isles' Financial Times 'Islander is a charming and attractive book... his shrewd study of the islander mentality [...] could stand for the entire country' Spectator The British Isles are an archipelago made up of two large islands and 6,289 smaller ones. Some, like the Isle of Man, resemble miniature nations, with their own language and tax laws; others, like Ray Island in Essex, are abandoned and mysterious places haunted by myths, ghosts and foxes. There are resurgent islands such as Eigg, which have been liberated from capricious owners to be run by their residents; holy islands like Bardsey, the resting place of 20,000 saints, and still a site of spiritual questing; and deserted islands such as St Kilda, famed for the evacuation of its human population, and now dominated by wild sheep and seabirds. In this evocative and vividly observed book, Patrick Barkham explores some of the most beautiful landscapes in the British Isles as he travels to ever-smaller islands in search of their special magic. Our small islands are both places of freedom and imprisonment, party destinations and oases of peace, strangely suburban and deeply wild. They are places where the past is unusually present, but they can also offer a vision of an alternative future. Meeting all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, from local legends to rare subspecies of vole, he seeks to discover what it is like to live on a small island, and what it means to be an islander.

Asian/Pacific Islander American Women is the first collection devoted to the historical study of A/PI women's diverse experiences in America. Covering a broad terrain from pre-large scale Asian emigration and Hawaii in its pre-Western contact period to the continental United States, the Philippines, and Guam at the end of the twentieth century, the text views women as historical subjects actively negotiating complex hierarchies of power. The volume presents new findings about a range of groups, including recent immigrants to the U.S. and understudied communities. Comprised of original new work, it includes chapters on women who are Cambodian, Chamorro, Chinese, Filipino, Hmong, Japanese, Korean, Native Hawaiian, South Asian, and Vietnamese Americans. It addresses a wide range of women's experiences-as immigrants, military brides, refugees, American born, lesbians, workers, mothers, beauty contestants, and community activists. There are also pieces on historiography and methodology, and bibliographic and video documentary resources. This groundbreaking anthology is an important addition to the scholarship in Asian/Pacific American studies, ethnic studies, American studies, women's studies, and U.S. history, and is a valuable resource for scholars and students.

Barkan's analysis of contemporary Asian and Pacific Islander immigration to the United States offers an up-to-date synthesis of data about global migration today. It presents a series of principles regarding new double-step patterns in populations movements across a rimless world at the end of the 20th century. This unique study examines world migration theory, a fourth wave of immigration to the United States since the 1960s, factors that affect peoples' decisions to migrate, their adjustment to new communities and their impact on them, and their deliberations about returning to their original homelands.

This is a cruising guide with a difference. Many boaters may not be aware of the opportunities for walks accessible from anchorages along the B.C. coast. For those who cruise with dogs aboard, and for those who like to venture ashore to stretch their legs, the book is illustrated with charming maps describing walks up and down the coast. Framed by the author's many years of cruising on a beautiful wooden sailboat along with her husband and two dogs, it tells tales of mishaps, adventures, explorations and glorious days on the water. The book is set against the stunning backdrop of the waters, mountains and islands between the B.C. mainland and Vancouver Island. If you are an experienced sailor with extensive knowledge of the B.C. Coast, are new to boating, or even a confirmed landlubber and armchair sailor, you will love this book. It is a "must have" in every boat's cruising library.

In America's increasingly diverse society, it is imperative that mental health providers prioritize the development of their cultural competence to assure that they are equipped to meet the needs of their clients. Cultural Considerations in Asian and Pacific Islander American Mental Health offers a broad array of perspectives from clinicians and researchers actively working with racially/ethnically diverse populations. This book addresses psychosocial cultural issues that impact the mental health of the growing Asian American population. The book opens with the concept of what and who is an Asian American, as well as the myriad distinctions and differences among various Asian groups. Covered chapter topics include a historical overview of the diverse populations among Asian and Pacific Islander Americans; a discussion of the tensions and similarities between empirically supported treatments and cultural competence; Asian and Pacific Islander American elders and depression; and a psychodynamic perspective regarding the treatment of dual diagnosis with an Asian American client. This book is a must-read for mental health clinicians, students, community workers, school counselors, and nurses who work with diverse populations.

As revealed in her diary, Maximilienne Carpentier is one of the most elusive and enigmatic figures of recent European history. Who was this strange woman? Where is the island she speaks of? Can we believe that she did away with her enemies as she describes? Was her father really a convicted criminal, her aunt a murderess, and her cousin a suicide? Who is the mysterious Claude Besson, her apparent help in time of trouble? What of the Royal Title she alludes to, or her claim that Charles VII of France ratified this valuable document? Although some details linger obstinately in the caprice of nineteenth-century political turmoil, the Carpentier diary nevertheless remains a fascinating document.
