Have you ever wondered why Asian women are among the most fit and thin women in the world? Many women have tried to understand the hidden secrets those Asian women keep but failed. The reason why it is so difficult to unveil the secret is that Asian women have a huge variety of traditions to keep them fit. Observing and interpreting everything in your own culture context individually will only lead you to inaccurate and ineffective answers. For example, you might be misguided by the surface that Asian women do eat as much as they feel like and very often even more than men, and they also spend much time watching television and much more time in front of a computer than women from western countries. Similar stereotype as above has produced hatred and jealous thoughts among many western women, who, even when living in Asian countries, cannot discover these secrets by themselves. Even though the Author has been focusing on the health and cultural principles of Asian Cultures, he ended up finding, all the hidden secrets to the widely envied as well as most desired Perfect Female body. Five years of research in China, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia, as well as famous autonomous regions such as Hong Kong and Macau, and conversations with dozens of women regarding the habits that contribute to their body-shape, no matter how much they eat or how old they are, lead to the discoveries of all the principles that reveal clearly what anyone can expect - the ideal body for women. It is interesting to notice the fact that these principles have no age limits. Asian women far beyond their 40's can still maintain an amazing body any young woman is dying for. This book is therefore a revelation of the best well-kept secrets among Asian women explaining how they achieve their obvious physical advantage easily, as well as a healthier lifestyle.
Comprehensive and authoritative, this Handbook provides a nuanced description and analysis of educational systems, practices, and policies in Asian countries and explains and interprets these practices from cultural, social, historical, and economic perspectives.
Many first and second generation Asian immigrants experience acculturation challenges to varying extents. These challenges, such as language barriers, racial discrimination, underemployment, the loss of support networks and changes in family role and structure, may exacerbate a myriad of mental health issues. In addition, their help-seeking behaviour, as shaped by a general adherence to a collectivistic worldview and indirect communication style, often creates challenges for the practitioners who are trained under a Western practice modality.
Drawing on literature from English-speaking countries with sizeable Asian immigrant populations such as the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United Kingdom, this text is designed especially for clinicians and students working with Asian immigrant populations. It discusses the therapeutic process in psychotherapy and counselling with these clients, exploring both key psychodynamic constructs and social systemic factors. Building on contemporary relational theory, which emphasizes the centrality of the helping relationship and sensitivity to the client's subjective realities, the book demonstrates how western-based concepts and skills can be broadened and applied in an Asiacentric context, and can be therapeutic even in social service and case management service settings. There are chapters on issues such as domestic violence, intergenerational conflicts, depression amongst elders, and suicide, discussing the prevalence and nature of the mental health issues and each containing case vignettes from various Asian ethnic groups to illustrate the application of relational approaches.
This book is an important cross-cultural reference for practising social workers and counsellors as well as for social work students undertaking clinical practice courses.

This book covers a broad range of topics in the history of economics that have relevance to economic theories. The author believes that one of the tasks for a historian of economics is to analyze and interpret theories currently outside the mainstream of economic theory, in this case non-Walrasian economics. By doing so, he argues, new directions and new areas for research can be developed that will extend the current theories. Familiar topics covered include: the division of labor, economies of scale, wages, profit, international trade, market mechanisms, and money. These are considered in the light of the well-known non-Walrasian schools of thought: the classical, Marxian, Austrian, and Cambridge schools.
