Parameters of Disavowal: Colonial Representation in South Korean Cinema (Global Korea Book 1)

by Jinsoo An

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. The colonial experience of the early twentieth century shaped Korea’s culture and identity, leaving a troubling past that was subtly reconstructed in South Korean postcolonial cinema. Relating postcolonial discourses to a reading of Manchurian action films, kisaeng and gangster films, and revenge horror films, Parameters of Disavowal shows how filmmakers reworked, recontextualized, and erased ideas and symbols of colonial power. In particular, Jinsoo An examines how South Korean films privileged certain sites, such as the kisaeng house and the Manchurian frontier, generating unique meanings that challenged the do...

Ryker (Kings of Korruption MC Book 1)

by Geri Glenn

Charlotte

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve taken care of everyone around me, including my self-centered older sister, Anna. When her poor choices make us targets of the Devil’s Rejects Motorcycle Club, I grab her and we run like hell. A new city, a new job, a new life. It’s almost perfect – and then I meet Ryker.

He’s gorgeous, rugged and too cocky for his own damned good. But he’s a biker – exactly the type of man I’ve been running from. I have no business getting involved with a man like him. Too bad I can’t get him out of my head.

Ryker

As V.P. of the Kings of Korruption MC, I know all about violence and loss. In my world, getting involved with a woman never turns out well. Avoiding commitment isn’t something I ...

The ancient Vietnamese life in which Tung was raised is being torn apart. It is not enough to work hard and grow rice anymore. Now every farmer in Mai Dong has to pick a side.

The French or the Communists.

"They are going to murder your father."

Intelligence, humility and graft made Que an honorable figure in Mai Dong. His values ensured the family's survival through famine and flood. They will not protect him against the Communists, who need class-enemy victims for their land reform campaign.

Tung becomes protector and provider for the family, who struggle to stick together as World War Two, the French Indochinese War, and the American War tear his country apart over forty years.

Vietnam becomes the battleground for th...

Umar ibn al-Khattab

by hesham zula

The hero I am going to talk about in this book is the 2nd man in Islam, after the messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) and after Abu Bakr Assidiq. Perhaps you may all not believe me if I say that to write about this man for me was a lifetime dream. Well this man is a pioneering figure in the whole Islamic world, He was an expert Islamic jurist and he is best known for his piety and just nature and this was the reason Muhammad (p.b.u.h) gave him the nickname of Alfaruq (the one who distinguishes between right and wrong). He was a great leader, a self-respecting, broad-minded, a sincere, and God conscious Muslim who showed respect for all individuals. He is the man whose name is paired with justice and truth, strength and courage. This man is Umar Ibn Al Khattab.When Umar became a Caliph, Islam spre...

Te Ninden

by Wan-Cheung Yi

The Imjin War, 1592…

Korea’s Joseon Dynasty falls to myriads of samurai under the hand of the Japanese warlord Taiko-sama. Despite Japan’s victories, ninja master Ryo Uguisu witnesses a different type of war dominated by Korea on the seas. Trained in the Korean language, and charmed by Joseon’s luxuries, Ryo decides to defect from the Japanese army by disguising himself as a Korean. After dragging his birdwatching companion, a Korean-inarticulate blind martial artist, into his scheme, Ryo finds that the Korean and Japanese cultures aren’t all that similar. And to make things worse, the hordes of Taiko-sama always raze his potential homes.

How will the duo manage? How hard can playing Korean be? What of the Imjin War?

Emphatic (Soul Serenade Book 1)

by Kaylee Ryan

There comes a point in your life where you have to say enough is enough.

I wasted my college years on a guy who played with my head, played with my heart. I was blinded by the fairytale, the one that didn’t exist.

The day I gave up on the idea of happily ever after, my focus became me. Moving forward and establishing my career.

Until one day…

I didn’t expect him. My new boss, a six foot two, inked rock god. I believed I was working for the record label, I was wrong.

It’s impossible for me to keep my distance, believe me I’ve tried. He’s not who I expected him to be. He’s so much more he’s…Emphatic

The Boxer Rebellion

by Adrian Musgrave

Called back from his honeymoon by an urgent telegram from the New York Times, George Clarke Musgrave settled his new wife at her family home in New Jersey and then left for San Francisco on 9th July 1900, from where he sailed for China. His brief was to travel with the American force that was part of an eight-nation alliance with Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Austro-Hungary, Japan and Russia, mounting what was termed the “China Relief Expedition.” Earlier in the year, hundreds of Chinese Christians and foreign missionaries had been viciously attacked and killed in China's Northern provinces. This violence and blood-letting came to a head with the murder of the German Minister in Peking, at which time most foreigners and many Chinese converts fled to the foreign legations in the city...

If you want to discover the captivating history of Taiwan, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!The history of Taiwan is astonishing. Politically, Taiwan— was a warlord culture. The Portuguese, when passing by the island in the mid-1540s, called the island “Ilha Formosa,” which means “Beautiful Island.” Then the Dutch came in the 1620s, searching for a base of operations for the Dutch East India Company. Then the Han Chinese came in the 17th century. Many of these Han Chinese were refugees from the wars in China. This influx caused an explosive reaction. And then came the Japanese in 1894! Taiwan was subjugated to a Japanese program of inculcation. All the people of Taiwan had to learn Japanese, and Shinto shrines cropped up everywhere. Then came Chiang Kai-shek in 1949....

The Ramasun Files

by M Burton

After writing the stories that became Tales of Ramasun I and II I thought I was done with all things Ramasun, but I wasn’t. My mind kept wandering back to those long gone times and a few more stories were remembered, some with the assistance of old friends and colleagues from those times who read my books and got in touch with me. I put these new stories in my files but there weren’t enough of them for another book. In the meantime I came up with a number of stories that weren’t about Ramasun, but were inspired by Ramasun. Now is the time to clean out those files. It’s a mixed bag, but I hope you will find something to enjoy. The first eight stories are related to Ramasun in one way or another. The last six are pure fiction, in the ‘inspired by Ramasun’ category. Many ...
