Bill Spara, the chieftain of the Kilndaele tribe, is just returning to Swink-on-Polt, the capital of Carnish, located in the eaves and gutters and bushes around a human house.

More > concentrates of the founding of Class War in an attempt to open up a second front of inner-city civil disobedience during the miners' strike. Bone's aim was to topple the Thatcher government and to declare war - Class War.In 1984.The Sunday People branded Ian Bone ‘The most dangerous man in Britain’. They weren’t far wrong.

More > the way Thais walk, talk and think, in keeping with Thai customs, culture, proverbs and the Buddhist Path.” —THE UGLY AMERICAN BOOK CLUB— In this poignant tale and unlikely love story, newly-assigned Peace Corps volunteer and Vietnam War opponent, Malcolm Jossogne, arrives in Udon, Thailand to find a once quiet, upcountry town transformed by the presence of thousands of American soldiers into a vulgar shantytown of massage parlors, strip joints, bowling alleys, and neon-lit nights where bars and brothels outnumber Buddhist temples.

Harvest of a Quiet Eye By Craig Stevaux

As if in some kind of karmic joke, newly assigned Peace Corps volunteer and Vietnam War opponent, Malcolm Jossogne, arrives in Udon, Thailand in 1970 to find this once quiet, upcountry town has been... More > transformed into a vulgar shantytown of massage parlors, strip joints, bowling alleys, and neon-lit nights by the presence of thousands of American soldiers. Streets that once carried bicycles are now choked with caravans of honking blue taxis only American soldiers can afford. Bars and brothels outnumber Buddhist temples. Where saffron-robed Theravada monks once padded in silent contemplation, Led Zeppelin and Three Dog Night now blast from the doorways of GI bars, and drunken Americans on all fours vomit into the gutters. Grotesque imitation of American fashion, customs, and vices induces a cultural schizophrenia. Nearer to Hanoi than Bangkok, Udon is strategic to the U.S. military as it prosecutes the war. But it’s also here that Malcolm is to meet a Thai girl, “the other half of his flesh.”< Less
