This volume, comprising eight closely related articles which were originally presented at the EUROSEAS 2004 conference in Paris, examines the depiction of foreigners in a range of Indonesian and Malay literary works spanning four centuries, from traditional texts in Malay and Javanese to modern Malaysian fiction and a Singaporean novel written in English. Sharing ideas of Said's conception of Orientalism and its 'twin-brother' Occidentalism, and Todorov's theory of monological and dialogical inter-cultural and inter-ethnic relations, the authors of the papers concentrate on the problem of the 'other'. The crux of this problem is how literary discourse of the examined writers, both traditional and modern, reveals the images and perceptions of their Malay and Indonesian neighbors and the world beyond, the Western world in particular.

Tales of the Earth : Four Events that Changed the World
Author: Richard Hamblyn
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
Blending history, science and eye-witness accounts, and arranged in chapters that correspond to the four ancient elements (earth, air, fire and water), Terra is a book about life, death and natural disasters. Through four case studies - the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, the European weather panics of 1783, the eruption of Krakatau in 1883 and the Hilo tsunami of 1946 - Richard Hamblyn paints a vivid picture of these turbulent events; their drama and scale; their inevitability and indiscriminate destruction.
