📒Pok Pok ✍ Andy Ricker
📝Pok Pok Book Synopsis : A guide to bold, authentic Thai cooking from Andy Ricker, the chef and owner of the wildly popular and widely lauded Pok Pok restaurants. After decades spent traveling throughout Thailand, Andy Ricker wanted to bring the country's famed street food stateside. In 2005 he opened Pok Pok, so named for the sound a pestle makes when it strikes a clay mortar, in an old shack in a residential neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. Ricker's traditional take on Thai food soon drew the notice of the New York Times and Gourmet magazine, establishing him as a culinary star. Now, with his first cookbook, Ricker tackles head-on the myths that keep people from making Thai food at home: that it's too spicy for the American palate or too difficult to source ingredients. Fifty knockout recipes for simple and delicious Thai dishes range from Grilled Pork Collar with Spicy Dipping Sauce and Iced Greens to Andy's now-famous Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings. Including a primer in Thai techniques and flavor profiles, with tips for modifying local produce to mimic Thai flavors, Pok Pok makes authentic Thai food accessible to any home cook.

📝POK POK The Drinking Food of Thailand Book Synopsis : A cookbook featuring the rich and varied drinking food of Thailand (and the drinks it's consumed with), with 50 recipes and travelogue-like essays, inspired by Whiskey Soda Lounge, Andy Ricker's Portland, Oregon, restaurant. A celebration of the thrill and spirit of Thai drinking food, Andy Ricker's follow-up to Pok Pok brings the same level of authority, with a more laid-back approach. Just as America has salted peanuts, wings, and nachos, Thailand has its own roster of craveable snacks: spicy, salty, and/or sour, they are perfect accompaniments for a few drinks and the company of good friends. Accessible and detailed recipes like phat khii mao (drunkard's stir-fry), kai thawt (Thai-style fried chicken), and thua thawt samun phrai (fried peanuts with kaffir lime, garlic, and chiles) provide all the tools to create the food and the experience of Whiskey Soda Lounge at home.

📒Pakistan Occupied Kashmir ✍ Virendra Gupta
📝Pakistan Occupied Kashmir Book Synopsis : Pakistan Occupied Kashmir: The Untold Truth' is a book about the territory of Jammu & Kashmir under Pakistani occupation. The region has been split up into two administrative units: Gilgit-Baltistan and Mirpur-Muzaffarabad, officially termed by Pakistanis as the 'Northern Areas, and 'Azad Kashmir' respectively. The media has constantly focussed on the Kashmir Valley, while the POK has remained neglected. Ignorance about the region borders on apathy. Even the circumstances under which the territory was occupied and the manner in which it was annexed by Pakistan have not been investigated by the scholars in requisite detail. The book traces the circumstances surrounding Pakistan's occupation of the territory, its current legal status, the growing popular discontentment and much more about POK's inside truth.

📒Pikachu S Global Adventure ✍ Joseph Tobin
📝Pikachu s Global Adventure Book Synopsis : Initially developed in Japan by Nintendo as a computer game, Pokémon swept the globe in the late 1990s. Based on a narrative in which a group of children capture, train, and do battle with over a hundred imaginary creatures, Pokémon quickly diversified into an array of popular products including comic books, a TV show, movies, trading cards, stickers, toys, and clothing. Pokémon eventually became the top grossing children's product of all time. Yet the phenomenon fizzled as quickly as it had ignited. By 2002, the Pokémon craze was mostly over. Pikachu’s Global Adventure describes the spectacular, complex, and unpredictable rise and fall of Pokémon in countries around the world. In analyzing the popularity of Pokémon, this innovative volume addresses core debates about the globalization of popular culture and about children’s consumption of mass-produced culture. Topics explored include the origins of Pokémon in Japan’s valorization of cuteness and traditions of insect collecting and anime; the efforts of Japanese producers and American marketers to localize it for foreign markets by muting its sex, violence, moral ambiguity, and general feeling of Japaneseness; debates about children’s vulnerability versus agency as consumers; and the contentious question of Pokémon’s educational value and place in school. The contributors include teachers as well as scholars from the fields of anthropology, media studies, sociology, and education. Tracking the reception of Pokémon in Japan, the United States, Great Britain, France, and Israel, they emphasize its significance as the first Japanese cultural product to enjoy substantial worldwide success and challenge western dominance in the global production and circulation of cultural goods.

📒When Slaves Became Masters ✍ Rattana Pok
📝When Slaves Became Masters Book Synopsis : Rattana Pok survived the unthinkable, savage and brutal regime of Pol Pot in Cambodia between 1975 and 1979. The prophecy of doom stated: "There will be bloodshed of an elephant's abdomen; there will be houses in which no one lives; and there will be walkways on which no one walks." In his childhood memoir, "When Slaves Became Masters," Pok wrote a tragic and gripping real-life narrative of his experiences growing up in Cambodia, one of the cruelest regimes that the world had ever experienced, after the fascist regime of Adolf Hitler. The United Nations' official death toll of the Cambodian holocaust is 1.75 millions, about 1/4 of the entire national population, died from starvation, mistreated illnesses, excessive forced hard labor, and murder. Pok's experiences and his family represent the experiences of several hundreds of thousands of families who had fallen victims to the Khmer Rouge regime. This non-fiction book will provide the readers with comprehensive understanding of Cambodia's history, tragic past, custom and culture. The book does not only describe the compelling tragedy, survival and reunification of his family members but also humors and romances of the times.

📒Fishers Of Garogos ✍ Hermien L. Soselisa
📝Fishers of Garogos Book Synopsis : Garogos is a small sand island barely rising above the sea off the eastern end of the large central Maluku Island of Seram. Unable to sustain agriculture, its 300-odd inhabitants are necessarily specialist fishermen. On the basis of her field-work in 1993 Hermien Soselisa paints a vivid picture of the precarious existence of the islanders as they struggle to secure their livelihood in the face of economic and ecological uncertainties.In Garagos, virtually everyone is a fisherman, exploiting a wide variety of marine resources, from shellfish and seaweed to sea slugs and deep ocean sharks. The sea provides food for daily subsistence as well as fish and other resources used in exchange for the products of agricultural communities in nearby islands. The Garogos islanders also depend upon the sale of their catch to earn money to buy other necessities of life.Soselisa provides insights into the customary marine tenure rights claimed by islanders, their varied strategies of dealing with the problems of meeting the subsistence needs of the household and the vagaries of the commercial market for sea resources. She also explores the sustainability of fishing in the face of market pressures and the depredations of commercial operations within the customary domain of Garogos islanders.The book is a valuable case study of an isolated and impoverished community that is nonetheless dependent upon the outside world for its very existence. This work adds to our understanding of artisanal fishing communities and indigenous systems of natural resource management in general as well as to our knowledge of eastern Indonesia in particular.The author, Hermien L Soselisa, is an anthropologist with the Maluku Studies Centre at Pattimura University in Ambon, eastern Indonesia. She is a graduate of Gadja Mada University and gained an MA degree in Anthropology from the Northern Territory University in Darwin. She also holds a PhD from the Northern Territory University (now Charles Darwin University). Hermien is the author of a number of articles and chapters on natural resource management. The manuscript for this book was completed while she was a Research Associate of the Centre for Indigenous Natural and Cultural Resource Management at Northern Territory University.
