Tea--A Journey in Time explains how the industry has changed over the past three centuries right up to the present day. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the quest for plants and seed of commercial importance led to the transportation of plants from one side of the world to the other. These plants and seeds were in every sense as valuable as gold and essential to the British Empire and its continuing development and prosperity. The final chapter in this fascinating book breaks new ground by examining the state of tea plantations as we enter the twenty-first century. To the keen tea drinkers, it graphically shows present-day living conditions for the workers, as well as how tea is grown and manufactured. Beautifully illustrated with fine color plates, drawings, engravings, and photographs, both past and present.

A Journey in Time comprises more than two decades of nature photography by Peter Stearns, offering a comprehensive vision of Mendocino County through the lens of his camera. Arranged month by month into a yearlong guided tour, this sensitive exploration features 313 superb wildflower photographs. Lovingly researched text provides detailed information about where and when to find each flower in bloom, and for botany students, the Latin genus and species complement the more commonly used names. Twenty-four dazzling land- and seascapes are also included. Nature lovers and wildflower enthusiasts will embrace this timeless journey and its exquisite images. A self-taught photographer, Mr. Stearns read Andreas Feininger's books and studied the work of David Munch. "Feininger and Munch," he says, "are all you need to know about composition and color photography -- the rest is up to you. I came from a family that loved art and, in their later years, became painters, photographers, and silversmiths; I guess I'm following in their footsteps."
The Temporal Dimension in Counselling and Psychotherapy looks at time as an intangible phenomenon that is culturally created, historically framed, but only individually understood. Examining our relationship to time as well as what it means in terms of our mortality, it integrates historical, cultural and psychotherapeutic perspectives to shine a light on our experience of time from our current identity to past trauma, both in the consulting room and beyond. Divided into three parts, the book explores those time-related issues that emerge in psychotherapy, it initially focuses on our existence as individuals in time, with chapters discussing how we develop a sense of self as a being-in-time, how our relationship to time is coloured by the world we live in today, and our attachment relationships and past traumas. In part two, the focus narrows to the consulting room itself; the practical aspects of the time-frame and how these can be managed. The third part of the book concerns the impact of trauma and other crises on our existence in time, as well as our experience of it. Exploring time-related issues as people navigate different stages in the life-cycle, as well as for people affected by illness, trauma and bereavement, this insightful and thought-provoking book will provide insights for counsellors and therapists about what time means both to themselves and their clients.

Burma enters the world stage as the biggest exporter of rice, and its rich resources are developed on an unprecedented scale. Journey in Time chronicles this period in the lives of the Myaing family and their friends as it highlights the fascinating cultural and personal details that make them unique and interesting. Author Wai Wai Myaing confidently brings her loved ones to life as she describes their simple joys, aspirations, the worries that beset them, and the gentle Buddhist religion that guides them through their lives with dignity and grace.
