Looks at southern Chinese martial arts traditions and how they have become important to local identity and narratives of resistance. This book explores the social history of southern Chinese martial arts and their contemporary importance to local identity and narratives of resistance. Hong Kong’s Bruce Lee ushered the Chinese martial arts onto an international stage in the 1970s. Lee’s teacher, Ip Man, master of Wing Chun Kung Fu, has recently emerged as a highly visible symbol of southern Chinese identity and pride. Benjamin N. Judkins and Jon Nielson examine the emergence of Wing Chun to reveal how this body of social practices developed and why individuals continue to turn to the martial arts as they navigate the challenges of a rapidly evolving environment. After surveying the development of hand combat traditions in Guangdong Province from roughly the start of the nineteenth century until 1949, the authors turn to Wing Chun, noting its development, the changing social attitudes towards this practice over time, and its ultimate emergence as a global art form.

In Princess, readers were shocked by Sultana's revelations about life in Saudi Arabia's royal family. Royal women live as virtual prisoners, surrounded by unimaginable wealth and luxury, privileged beyond belief, and yet subject to every whim of their husbands, fathers, and even their sons. Daughters of Arabia featured Sultana's teenage daughters, determined to rebel but in very different ways. And now, in Desert Royal, Sultana's fight for women's rights in a repressive, fundamentalist Islamic society, has an extra sense of urgency. The threat of world terrorism, the gathering strength of religious leaders and the discontent of impoverished Saudis are threatening to topple the comfortable world Sultana has known. But an extended family 'camping' trip in the desert brings Sultana and her relatives face to face with their nomadic roots, and nourishes her will to carry on the fight for women's rights in all Muslim countries. This updated edition contains an all-new chapter as well as a letter from Sultana herself, encouraging all women to take up the struggle for freedom for their abused sisters throughout the world.

This concise text describes the basic principles of crystal structure determination by X-ray diffraction and the application of these principles in practice. The technique is presented step-by-step and illustrated with a wide range of case studies, including the use of the most up-to-date equipment. Crystal Structure Determination explains how X-ray crystallography fits in with modern chemistry, why it is important, and what it can do, with the aim of enabling the reader to understand and assess structural results in books and research journals. There is additional coverage of related topics such as neutron diffraction and the application of computer databases. Mathematical treatment is kept at a relatively low level and is complemented by extensive illustrations and worked examples. This clear introduction to the topic will be an essential text for chemistry undergraduates. Other related science undergraduates (biochemists, environmental scientists, etc.) and postgraduate chemists will also find this book useful.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Sociology - Culture, Technology, Peoples / Nations, grade: 10, course: BA Dual Hons Social Sciences, language: English, abstract: The present term paper will try to compile the life and atrocities suffered by Saudi women, royals and commoners - the patriarchal society of Saudi Arabia, as well as the recent developments in Saudi Arabia with regard to women, both by taking references from the novels written by Jean Sasson as well as from the web sources. Princess - A trilogy, which is written by international author Jean Sasson, is a heart stirring novel about the life of a Saudi Princess Sultana, which is testimony to a woman of indomitable spirit and great courage. In this trilogy, Jean Sasson captured the flavours and reality of life in a country full of extremes and contradictions. Princess 'Sultana', a real Saudi princess closely related to king, lives those contradictions, with priceless jewels, many servants, unlimited funds at her disposal, but NO FREEDOM. Jean Sasson quotes princess 'Sultana' as, "A prisoner in a gilded cage with no vote, no control, and no value but as a mother of son, she is totally at mercy of the men of her life- her father, her brother, her husband'. In this novel, this bold Saudi princess gave an unvarnished look inside a closed society. 'Sultana' lifted the veil on the shocking world of forced marriages, sex slavery, honour killings and other outrages against women, both royal and common. By telling her story and miserable life of women in kingdom, 'Sultana' risked the wrath of the Saudi people and for this reason, she told her story anonymously through the bestselling author. This never forgetting real life story inspired me to write a term paper regarding society of Saudi Arabia, whose shimmers fade, when it comes to life of women
