On Their Own: a story of street children in Thailand by Colin C. Bell..
Based on TRUE events! Life was tough enough for Nok and his sister Ning after their father walked out, leaving their mother to raise them alone in a Bangkok slum, yet they made ends meet.
But when she suddenly falls sick and dies, the children have no option but to find their own way in this world. When they fail to find their mother's estranged sister far away from Bangkok, the two siblings end up on the streets of Bangkok. While fending for themselves and resisting the momentary temptations of vice and drugs and the trap of child prostitution, their unlikely dream is to find a new home.
Life is an ongoing daily struggle and the children try their best to survive, while desperately hoping for a way out. Is there a place for them where they can escape the street and the seemingly inevitable slide into crime, vice, and a wasted life?

Colonial Cambodia's 'Bad Frenchmen'

 

BY GREGOR MUELLER
Colonial Cambodia's Bad Frenchmen provides a captivating analysis of the gradual establishment of French colonialism in the late nineteenth century.
Drawing on new materials from French, Vietnamese and Cambodian archives, it reconstructs a time during which France struggled to give meaning and substance to its Protectorate over Cambodia.
It traces the lives of failed colonists most notably Thomas Caramen, who all constituted a challenge to the colonial enterprise by muddling its social, cultural and racial boundaries.
In its consideration of the critical role played by these colonists, this compelling book shifts away from governor-generals, grand discourses and the simple view of colonialism as colonizers versus colonized, to explore how things actually worked themselves out on the ground.
It examines in particular the 'civilizing mission' and educational initiatives; the slow destruction of the indigenous justice system; the policing of sexual relations between colonisers and colonized; the theft of Cambodian land and taxes by the colonizing power; and the brutal repression of resistance wherever and whenever it appeared.
Overall, Muller reveals the crucial role played by indigenous middlemen and marginal Europeans in the rise of the colonial state, and tells the fascinating tale of a Frenchman who came to represent everything that the colonial state dreaded.

The Charisma of Adolf Hitler

by Laurence Rees

 Adolf Hitler was an unlikely leader - fuelled by hate, incapable of forming normal human relationships, unwilling to debate political issues - and yet he commanded enormous support. So how was it possible that Hitler became such an attractive figure to millions of people? That is the important question at the core of Laurence Rees' new book.

The Holocaust, the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, the outbreak of the Second World War - all these cataclysmic events and more can be laid at Hitler's door. Hitler was a war criminal arguably without precedent in the history of the world. Yet, as many who knew him confirm, Hitler was still able to exert a powerful influence over the people who encountered him.

In this fascinating book to accompany his new TV series, the acclaimed historian and documentary maker Laurence Rees examines the nature of Hitler's appeal, and reveals the role Hitler's supposed 'charisma' played in his success. Rees' previous work has explored the inner workings of the Nazi state in The Nazis: A Warning from History and the crimes they committed in Auschwitz: The Nazis and the Final Solution. The Charisma of Adolf Hitler is a natural culmination of twenty years of writing and research on the Third Reich, and a remarkable examination of the man and the mind at the heart of it all.
