In the late 1980s Paul Davies arrived in London from North Wales with a guitar and 400 in cash. His aim was to be a millionaire by the age of forty, and now with ten properties to his name he's well on the way to achieving that goal. Here he shows that getting wealth can have a kind face. It's a fusion of Eastern and Western philosophy, and it's been achieved by years of study and practical application. Why The Joy of Hard Work? Well, we've had the joy of this and that, and Paul feels rightly that motivation, not titillation, is what most people need. In this he wisely includes those who have - or may one day have. Here then is a handbook towards happiness for those who are actively engaged in the business of life, written by someone who's had setbacks but has succeeded, both in retailing and in property. If life is like a jigsaw puzzle, this excellent book will help you put the pieces together."

Portraits of "primitives"

Ordering Human Kinds in the Chinese Nation

Category: Social Science

Page: 235

Ethnicity is a highly politicized issue in contemporary China. Twentieth-century nation-building has been intimately involved with classification of China's fifty-five ethnic minorities and with fostering harmony and unity among nationalities. Officially sanctioned social science classifies the majority group, the so-called Han, at the pinnacle of modernization and civilization and most other groups as "primitive". In Portraits of "Primitives", Susan D. Blum explores how Han in the city of Kunming, in southwest China, regard ethnic minorities and, by extension, themselves. She sketches "portraits", or cognitive prototypes, of ethnic groups in a variety of contexts, explaining the perceived visibility of each group (which almost never correlates with size of population).
