From humble origins as a Sri Lankan raised on a small rubber estate in war-ravaged Malaysia, Maha Sinnathamby migrated to Australia some 40 years ago and has faced countless obstacles and many failures. Yet through fierce determination, unrelenting drive, sheer hard work, and extraordinary vision, he has an enduring legacy of community-building achievements to his name and was listed within BRW’s 50 Most Wealthy Australians in 2011. In 1992 Maha’s private, under-capitalised firm purchased 2,860 hectares of inhospitable, inaccessible land in an economically depressed region of Queensland, Australia. Two decades later, despite innumerable setbacks, Springfield has emerged as Australia’s largest privately-owned, master-planned city; and is a striking example of what’s possible when you design a city exclusively around the needs of the community. Stop Not Till the Goal is Reached explores the 10 principles for fearless success that have guided Maha throughout his life. It explains the principles through Maha’s personal journey and provides other examples of astonishing achievements from around the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lucy Price-Lewis.

ASEAN´s Half Century (eBook, PDF)

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This authoritative book provides a comprehensive political history of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the ten members of which are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Leading scholar Donald E. Weatherbee follows ASEAN from its inception in 1967, when it was founded with the goal of promoting peace, stability, security, and economic growth in the region. Throughout, a basic assumption of its leaders has been that the achievement of the first three conditions is necessary for the fourth. Weatherbee traces ASEAN?s three reinventions: in 1976, it made security a primary Cold War interest; in 1992, it refocused on economic integration; in 2007, it adopted the ASEAN Charter, which was the legal basis for the establishment of the ASEAN Community in 2015. He shows how at each stage of its development, ASEAN has dealt at three levels of action: the regional international order; intra-ASEAN relations; and the spillover of the domestic politics of member states into regional relations, particularly on questions of democracy and human rights. ASEAN?s greatest contemporary political challenge is in adapting to the regional impact of the US?China rivalry, particularly over South China Sea issues. For ASEAN to maintain its claim to centrality as a driving force in the regional security architecture, the author argues, a fourth reinvention may be required. Dispelling the myths surrounding the organization?s achievements fifty years after its founding, this book will be invaluable for all readers interested in ASEAN?s role in the broader Asia-Pacific region.

In their book Drive Nacho Drive, Brad and Sheena Van Orden traded the American Dream for the open road, and set off in their temperamental 1984 VW van named ´´Nacho.´´ After 13 months of humorous and sometimes demoralizing misadventures along the Pan-American Highway, our intrepid subjects eventually arrived at the southernmost town in the world in Tierra del Fuego. This is where 927 Days of Summer picks up the trail. After shipping Nacho from Argentina to Malaysia on a container ship, Brad and Sheena resume their journey, this time with the ambitious goal of driving all the way around the world. When they roll out of the shipping container onto Malaysian soil, their odometer turns over to 300,000 miles. Is Nacho really up for the brutal journey ahead? This hilarious and harrowing tale cuts through the sweltering jungles of Southeast Asia to the buzzing hornet´s nest of India, from the remote Nepalese Himalayas to the stony hills of Anatolia, on to the Sahara Desert of Africa, through Europe and beyond. Whether dodging rickshaws on crater-filled roads, defying Maoist rebels on cliff-hanging Himalayan tracks, getting hopelessly stuck in the desert on the Pakistani border, or becoming the subjects of an international missing persons´ case in the remote mountains of Laos, there is never a dull moment in 927 Days of Summer. Come along as a diverse cast of characters guides our determined travelers through a world of unfolding landscapes and cultures on the road trip to end all road trips, and then ask yourself: can you really just go home, unpack, and eat a sandwich? 1.

Asia´s Cauldron: The South China Sea and the En...
9,95 € *

Over the last decade, the center of world power has been quietly shifting from Europe to Asia. With oil reserves of several billion barrels, an estimated 900 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and several centuries´ worth of competing territorial claims, the South China Sea in particular is a simmering pot of potential conflict. The underreported military buildup in the area where the Western Pacific meets the Indian Ocean means that it will likely be a hinge point for global war and peace for the foreseeable future. In Asia´s Cauldron, Robert D. Kaplan offers up a vivid snapshot of the nations surrounding the South China Sea, the conflicts brewing in the region at the dawn of the 21st century, and their implications for global peace and stability. To understand the future of conflict in East Asia, Kaplan argues, one must understand the goals and motivations of its leaders and its people. Part travelogue, part geopolitical primer, Asia´s Cauldron takes us on a journey through the region´s boom cities and ramshackle slums: From Vietnam, where the superfueled capitalism of the erstwhile colonial capital, Saigon, inspires the geostrategic pretensions of the official seat of government in Hanoi, to Malaysia, where a unique mix of authoritarian Islam and Western-style consumerism creates quite possibly the ultimate postmodern society; and from Singapore, whose ´´benevolent autocracy´´ helped foster an economic miracle, to the Philippines, where a different brand of authoritarianism under Ferdinand Marcos led not to economic growth but to decades of corruption and crime. At a time when every day´s news seems to contain some new story - large or small - that directly relates to conflicts over the South China Sea, Asia´s Cauldron is an indispensable guide to a corner of the globe that will affect all of our lives for years to come. 1.

Making Cities Resilient

As the world has transformed, so have cities. Today, cities are home to 54 percent of the world´s population, and by the middle of this century that figure will likely rise to 66 percent. According to the United Nations (UN) Habitat I (1972), Habitat II (1996) and Habitat III (2016) summits, cities are facing many serious challenges, including growing inequality, security concerns and the worsening impacts of climate change. Uncontrolled urbanization has led to many problems (haphazard growth of areas, emergence of slums, inadequate water and power supply, poor sanitation, shortage of transport and other civic amenities, shrinking green spaces, pollution, crime, and urban disaster risks such as fire, flood, road and industrial accidents, etc.). Worldwide, communities at the international, national and local level are continuously working to improve human habitats. In order to make our planet more sustainable, the UN has moved from the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Among the latter, the aim of SDG 11 is to ´´...make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.´´ In light of these challenges, various terms have emerged to help understand urban issues. Visualizing the problem, the United Nations program ´´Making Cities Resilient´´ is focused on mitigating the disaster risk in urban areas. This book analyzes terms such as: sustainable, resilient, livable, inclusive, smart and world class city, which have emerged in the process of combating urban challenges in today´s world. The book addresses emerging concepts for cities, challenges and potentials, urban environments, health and planning/policies. Covering 14 large cities in India, as well as case studies from Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Poland and Sweden, it provides a regional dimension to and micro-level perspective on urban issues.
