'Kerr is the Bill Bryson of the Playstation generation' Billy had only gone out for a bacon roll but in his hungover state had vowed to find Buddha a more fitting home. The only problem was that the Buddhas new home happened to be in Bangkok. And so begins a journey that will transport Billy and his partner Ellen around the world and back again. Trouble is never far away from this hapless duo. They stumble across a Scottish themed brothel, buy hippo penis cream instead of malaria pills and highjack a stage to sing the Scottish Anthem. But all the fun of travel soon evaporates. An incident occurs that turns the couples's happy go lucky experience in to a nightmare and brings them close to death and even closer to madness. Startlingly honest, ridiculously funny and horrifyingly frightening, A Tale of Buddhas and Bandits is the true story of two years in the life of an itinerant couple.

The Garland Handbook of Southeast Asian Music is comprised of essays from The Garland Encyclopedia of World Music: Volume 4, Southeast Asia (1998). Largely revised and updated, the essays offer detailed, regional studies of the different musical cultures of Southeast Asia and examine the ways in which music helps to define the identity of this particular area. Part one provides an in-depth introduction to the area of Southeast Asia and explores a series of issues and processes, such as colonialism, mass media, spirituality, and war. The articles in this section are important in gaining historical, political, and social perspective. Part two focuses on mainland Southeast Asia, with essays representing Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Burma, Peninsular Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, and the minority peoples of mainland Southeast Asia. Part three focuses on island Southeast Asia, dividing the area into three sections: Indonesia, the Philippines, and Borneo. In addition to offering a detailed study of the music of each area, it also offers recent perspectives on the gamelan and theater traditions of Indonesia. Questions for Critical Thinking at the end of each major section guide and focus attention on what issues – musical and cultural – arise when one studies the music of Southeast Asia – issues that might not occur in the study of other musics of the world. An accompanying compact disc offers musical examples from Southeast Asia.

Ideal for any cultural anthropology course, this brief collection of ethnographic case studies exposes students to 15 different cultures. The groups selected are peoples whose traditional cultures are uniquely their own. Each has distinctive patterns and practices; each has faced the challenge of an encroaching world, with differing results. Moreover, they often provide the prime illustrations of important concepts in introductory anthropology course including Azande witchcraft, Ju/'hoansi egalitarianism, Trobriand kula exchange, and Minangkabau matriliny. As such, this volume can stand alone.

Back by popular demand... In the summer of 2004, Tony James Slater went to Ecuador, looking to become a man. Not all of him returned. But the bit that did was fuelled by a burning desire to do... something. Something that mattered. And, ideally, to get the hell out of England in the process. His dream was to blatantly steal his friend Toby's dream - of going to Thailand and becoming a professional diver. But when a man like this goes on a search for adventure - well, it's bound to end in tears. And yet - what can actually go wrong? I mean, really? With renovating a house? With volunteering? With sailing? And diving? Surely, those are the kind of activities that any old idiot can pull off? But then, this isn't just any old idiot. This is Tony James Slater - the man who was convincingly mauled by a domestic cat. And to make things worse - he's not alone... So batten down the hatches! Lock up your power tools! And for gawd's sake turn the electricity off. Because that idiot from Ecuador is back. And this time, he's brought the whole family... This book is the second in the series, following on from 'That Bear Ate My Pants!', which chronicles Tony's misadventures in an Ecuadorian animal refuge. It is followed by 'Kamikaze Kangaroos!', which charts his trip around Australia in a van called Rusty... They can all be read as stand-alone books, or together.

Tony James Slater knew nothing about Australia. Except for the fact that he'd just arrived there. The stage is set for an outrageous adventure: three people, one van, on an epic, 20,000 mile road trip around Australia. What could possibly go wrong? Of course, the van - nicknamed 'Rusty' - is a crumbling wreck, held together by the world's most garish paint job. They're criss-crossing the continent through some of the most inhospitable land on the planet - the infamous Aussie Outback. And isn't there something about Australian animals being... well, you know, kind of dangerous? Unprepared, under-qualified and hopelessly inept, Tony battles gigantic pumpkins, mechanical mishaps and suicidal kangaroos, armed only with a thong and a sense of humour. His companions struggle to keep him safe whilst climbing in drag, snowboarding off cliffs, and hiking hundreds of miles through the bush. One thing's for sure; this 'adventure of a lifetime' - if they survive it - is something they're never going to forget. So, scull those stubbies! Grab your galahs! And put down that platypus. LOOK OUT, AUSTRALIA! There's an idiot coming...
