At Home in Sri LankaOrdinær pris 429,00 kr
A decade after the publication of living in Sri Lanka, photographer James Fennell revisits the `paradise isle' to discover exactly what it is that makes a great Sri Lankan home. Travelling with writer tom sykes, he has visited numerous houses and taken thousands of photographs, as well as interviewing owners, interior decorators, architects, stylists and designers. Collectively, the twenty-six properties showcased in this book - the very best examples - capture the essence of elegant Sri Lankan living.
Sri Lanka is a place of geographic and cultural contrasts, and its best architecture is structurally versatile, using features such as overhanging roofs, slatted walls and courtyards to cope with intense sunshine and sudden downpours in equal measure. Also in the interior, climatic factors dominate even the most luxurious homes: Valuable antiques and art give way to simple pieces of furniture, batiks, prints and artfully crafted cushions, with colour or shadow used creatively to enliven expansive walls. From the colonial grandeur of actress gillian anderson's secluded retreat and the sumptuous Wallawawa hotel to works by the celebrated architects Geoffrey Bawa (claughton house; paradise road the villa Bentota) and anjalendran (the crooked house; mount cinnamon), the structures in this book have one thing in common: They embrace the unpredictable natural environment, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living.

It's the second in our Local series, which unites intimate food knowledge with stunning gonzo-photography. From the Early chapter, you might cook up some fried taro cakes (kanom pak gad) or an egg in tamarind sauce (kai luk keuy) or rice soup with barramundi (kao tom pla kra pong). Then Mid is all about lunch and afternoon snackery: orange sour soup with prawns and mixed vegetables (gaeng som pak gung sod), papaya salad (som tum) and fried rice with pineapple (kao pad sapparod).
Finally, it's Late. That means jungle curry with pork (gaeng pa mu), late-night stir-fried crab with black pepper (pu pad prik thai dum) and bananas in coconut cream (gluay buat chee). It's high time you tried Thai.

kina - den nye supermaktenOrdinær pris 199,00 kr
Kunnskapsrikt og spennende om det nye Kina! Kina har gjennomgått en spektakulær utvikling de seneste 30 årene. Økonomien har vokst i rekordfart, skyskraperne har skutt i været og millioner av kinesere har tatt steget fra fattigdom til middelklasse. Selv om Kina nå er blant verdens supermakter, vet nordmenn forbløffende lite om landet. Den anerkjente utenriksjournalisten Sun Heidi Sæbø har reist i president Xi Jinpings fotspor for å gi leseren innsikt i dagens Kina og landets moderne historie. Den kinesiske suksessen har også mørke nattsider. Vi får lese om miljøskandaler, folkeforlyttinger, protestene i 1989 og fredsprisvinner Liu Xiaobos skjebne. Til sammen tegner Sæbø et interessant og til tider skremmende bilde av dette fascinerende landet som bare kommer til å bli enda mektigere og viktigere fremover.
