The Awakening of the West is an insightful and elegantly written history chronicling the developing relationship between Buddhism and Western culture. As anyone familiar with the work of Stephen Batchelor (best-selling author of Buddhism Without Beliefs) would expect, The Awakening of the West is presented in a fresh and lively way and backed by thorough research. Using the innovative approach of starting with the present and working back in time, Batchelor makes it easy to connect familiar contemporary Buddhist teachers to their historical roots. He breathes life into history by capturing the personalities and times of famous and lesser-known but important Buddhist figures. After absorbing these stories and their context, readers will not only have a greater appreciation of Buddhism as a religion but can gain insights that can help them develop their own discerning wisdom. The Awakening of the West is a unique, engaging and important book for anyone seeking a greater understanding of Buddhism.

Although there have been many discussions about challenges faced by individuals going through East to West migrations, there are few literary accounts about those moving from the West to the East. Yet these migrations are becoming more frequent now due to advances in technology and the fact that a writer’s work can now involve an increasingly global audience. One way of expressing these challenges is through writing memoirs. Xenotropism and the Awakening of Literary Expatriatism through Writing Memoirs exemplifies the craft of memoirs written while living in a foreign country and explains how this is different from writing from home. The book is a theoretical analysis of xenotropism based on the work of three prominent writers in China’s history: Emily Hahn, Nien Cheng and Qiu Xiaolong. The author explores the relationship between xenotropism (turning towards foreign ideals and practices), its complexities and challenges, and the writing of a memoir and its impact on mental health. This discourse will contribute to new knowledge in the field of creative writing and Asian studies by illustrating how xenotropism or ‘turning towards foreign ideals and practices’ results in both personal and artistic development and builds an understanding and acceptance of different cultures within an individual. These processes of change and understanding, in turn, facilitate the writing of a memoir, which is a cathartic process having a positive effect on one’s mental state. Readers interested in creative writing or Asian literary studies will be able to understand the creative process behind writing memoirs from a combination of personal, research-based, literary and theoretical perspectives.

"The Awakening Land" continues the great, sweeping epic of the early Southwest. The story follows the fortunes of the Apodaca family from Spanish conquest through the late 1800s, as each generation struggles to survive in a harsh and bloody land. Ride with Miguel Apodaca as he deserts, recoiling from the gruesome atrocities of Don Juan de Onate's conquistadors, and meets lovely Summer Grass - an escaped captive girl of the Comanche. Experience the fearsome Pueblo Revolt and its tragic aftermath. Follow the river north again with Mateo and Cipriano Apodaca, as Don Diego de Vargas retakes New Mexico for Spain. In the small settlement of Corrales, meet strange, crippled Quirina Apodaca - and "White Witch" of the Corrales Valley, and later - Gregorio Apodaca, whose strength and courage become legend. "The Awakening Land" is also the story of Frenchmen Louis and Julian Bonneau - forced to leave their home in Bordeaux, and flee to America to escape the guillotine for an unspeakable crime. Another fugitive is young Gaetano Perna. Smuggled out of his small village in Sicily under the threat of Mafia vendetta, Gaetano will eventually find himself on the harsh New Mexico frontier where he'll discover love and become a man.
