Why are Southeast Asia's richest countries such as Malaysia riddled with corruption? Why do Myanmar, Thailand and the Philippines harbour unresolved violent insurgencies? How do deepening religious divisions in Indonesia and Malaysia, and China's growing influence, affect the region and the rest of the world? Thought-provoking and eye-opening, Blood and Silk is an accessible, personal look at modern Southeast Asia, written by one of the region's most experienced outside observers. This is a first-hand account of what it's like to sit at the table with deadly Thai Muslim insurgents, mediate between warring clans in the Southern Philippines and console the victims of political violence in Indonesia - all in an effort to negotiate peace, and understand the reasons behind endemic violence.
FASCINATING NOVEL EXPLORES JESUS AND MARY’S CONTROVERSIAL BOND THROUGH THE LENSES OF CULTURAL, SOCIAL, POLITICAL AND HISTORICAL CONTEXTS. Mary Magdalene and Jesus of Nazareth’s mysterious, legendary connection can only be realized by revisiting their story through its Greco-Roman, Mediterranean cultural context. Early theologians censored details about theater, literature, dress, cuisine, wedding rituals, glass manufacturing, silk trade, politics and architecture of Mary Magdalene’s time when they did not fit dogma and doctrine. Cultural Historian Carol Aldenhoven McKay retrieves these lost frameworks as the story line follows McKay’s meticulous reconstruction of a formerly forgotten way of life. Blood and Silk: The Hidden Love Story of Mary Magdalene and Jesus of Nazareth is a novel fifteen years in the making.
