This book examines how business, the social sciences, science and technology will impact the future of ASEAN. Following the ASEAN VISION 2020, it analyses the issues faced by ASEAN countries, which are diverse, while also positioning ASEAN as a competitive entity through partnerships. On the 30th anniversary of ASEAN, all ASEAN leaders agreed to the establishment of the ASEAN VISION 2020, which delineates the formation of a peaceful, stable and dynamically developed region while maintaining a community of caring societies in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. In keeping with this aspiration, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UitM) Perlis took the initial steps to organise conferences and activities that highlight the role of the ASEAN region. The Second International Conference on the Future of ASEAN (ICoFA) 2017 was organised by the Office of Academic Affairs, Universiti Teknologi MARA Perlis, to promote more comprehensive integration among ASEAN members. This book, divided into two volumes, offers a useful guide for all those engaged in research on business, the social sciences, science and technology. It will also benefit researchers worldwide who want to gain more knowledge about ASEAN countries.
A year after the disappearance and commencement of the international search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, no sign of the plane has been found - no debris, no bodies, no sign of the much-talked-about black box. Richard Belzer, George Noory, and David Wayne want to know why. Scrutinizing the theories the media and politicians claim are the ´´most likely´´ reasons the plane crashed, Belzer, Noory, and Wayne argue that if a year after a huge Boeing 777 has gone missing, and there´s still no sign of it whatsoever, it´s time to think outside the box. The public needs to stop being misled. If a plane and its passengers went ´´missing´´ once, what´s to stop it from happening again? Some of the theories the authors consider seem implausible on the surface, but the thorough research they´ve done and the continual failure of politicians, aviation authorities, and military members around the world to give any indication they´re wrong makes their arguments as good - if not better - than the more widely shared ones. The title of this thought-provoking volume, Someone Is Hiding Something, is a line spoken by former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad - perhaps the only government official to publicly acknowledge the true reason that neither Flight 370 nor the 239 people onboard have been found. 1.

Following the first volume, which described Buddhism in India, this volume discusses the historical and doctrinal development of Theravada Buddhism in its ?classical= homelands (Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos), as well as its spread and revival in India, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Indonesia. The various schools of Tibetan Buddhism are also presented in detail and placed in the context of Tibetan history, and local forms of Tibetan Buddhism in Bhutan and among the ethnic groups of Mongolia are also described. A final chapter discusses Buddhism among the Turkic peoples of Central Asia before their conversion to Islam.Nach dem ersten Band, der den indischen Buddhismus beschrieben hat, behandeln die Kapitel dieses Bandes die geschichtliche und lehrmäßige Entwicklung des Theravada-Buddhismus in seinen ´´klassischen´´ Ländern (Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Kambodscha, Thailand und Laos), aber auch dessen Verbreitung und Revitalisierung in Indien, Bangladesch, Malaysia und Indonesien. Ferner werden die verschiedenen Schulen des tibetischen Buddhismus detailliert dargestellt und in die Geschichte Tibets eingeordnet, aber auch die lokalen Ausprägungen des tibetischen Buddhismus in Bhutan sowie unter den mongolischen Volksgruppen werden beschrieben. Ein letztes Kapitel behandelt den Buddhismus bei den Turkvölkern Zentralasiens vor der Islamisierung.
The finest of all Conrad´s tales, Heart of Darkness is set in an atmosphere of mystery and menace, and tells of Marlow´s perilous journey up the Congo River to relieve his employer´s agent, the renowned and formidable Mr. Kurtz. What he sees on his journey, and his eventual encounter with Kurtz, horrify and perplex him, and call into question the very bases of civilization and human nature. Endlessly reinterpreted by critics and adapted for film, radio, and television, the story shows Conrad at his most intense and sophisticated. The other three tales in this volume depict corruption and obsession, and question racial assumptions. Set in the exotic surroundings of Africa, Malaysia, and the east, they variously appraise the glamour, folly, and rapacity of imperial adventure. This revised edition uses the English first edition texts and has a new chronology and bibliography.
