The “People Power” Job Superbook: Book 43. General World Job Guide (Work In a Foreign Country, South - Central America - Mexico - Caribbean – Asia - Middle East – Africa - Antarctica - Arctic Jobs) By Tony Kelbrat
eBook (ePub): $5.00
If you're willing to get dirty and work hard, you can find work anywhere. Based on all the research I've done in looking for a job in other than your home country or your home region as in the case... More > of the European Union, my general impression, though not laid in stone, is that except for a few pockets of freedom and enlightenment (Australia and Ibiza), unless you're a professional or a highly skilled worker, the party's over. What I mean is that at one time if a young person approached a border crossing anywhere, they usually let him or her in easily without hassles but nowadays they won't let you into a lot of countries unless you have a two-way plane ticket. You can't just go somewhere and bum around for awhile anymore. This is due to two reasons in my opinion: 1.)

Central Asia is a key theater in the war on terrorism. It is a region of fragile new states, all facing a wide range of challenges. Ungoverned regions―the cauldron of terrorism―are... More > common. As the U.S. State Department notes, the United States, “learned a harsh lesson after we disengaged from Afghanistan in the early 1990s.

One of the hallmarks of the two Bush administrations’ foreign and defense policies has been a growing rapprochement with India. Indeed, in June 2005 the U.S. Government signed a defense... More > agreement with that country. In part, this rapprochement is driven by and coincides with India’s increasingly visible role as a major Asian power.

Both the Taiwan Strait and the Korean peninsula harbor real dangers for the Northeast Asian region. The clash between an increasingly divergent nationalist identity in China and in Taiwan represents... More > a new challenge for U.S. policy in the region. Similarly, the rise of pan-Korean nationalism in South Korea, and an unpredictable North Korean regime that has succeeded in driving a wedge between Seoul and Washington, has created another highly combustible zone of potential conflict.
