The scene is set as Khadijah Hussein, a westernized, fashionable, Malaysian fashion model and the mother of two turns up at her local Mosque dressed in a Burqa complete with a veil. She is unable to communicate except to utter Muslim prayers. Khadijah's frantic husband contacts her Singapore alumni group including psychiatrist, Dr. Linda Belgrove, who diagnoses Khadijah as having suffered 'Identity Fracture, the worst case she have ever seen.' Members of Khadijah's alumni group decide to take her on a voyage of rediscovery to well known healing sites in Asia, Europe and America to restore Khadijah's identity and allow her to return to her children and husband. The result is a tongue-in-cheek look at Identity issues in Muslim Malaysia following the invasion of Iraq. Culture-clash, thousands of years old religious traditions, and the meaning of life are all examined in this fast-paced Humor Novel set in Malaysia, Singapore, Hawaii, France, Arizona, and the former North Borneo.

Infused with the cacophony of everyday existence and the neon dance of dreams, this intricate debut by Khadijah Queen channels the unbroken murmurs between body and spirit, methodically traversing an uncertain reality on a path that moves beyond the edges of words. In deference to Plato, Cratylus and Central American rituals, Conduit exposes a tender core, fearlessly pulling away the roughened muslin of our shared human skin.

Theses sitcoms and comedy-dramas live on as cable TV re-runs and through online fan communities, demonstrating mass appeal across generations of women and men. Connecting fan commentary with analysis by television scholars, this book explores the development of these series from the 1980s on, with a focus on the role of fan cultures in "reproducing" these popular American shows.

Feminist Auteurs examines a rich and diverse body of work that has received insufficient attention both in film studies and in feminist theory on film. Looking at individual films within the context of feminist film as a genre, Ramanathan examines film from diverse cultural traditions, while paying close attention to what might be regarded as feminist in different cultural contexts. The films chosen expand our ideas of feminism covering as they do film from Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia and the US. Full-length interpretations of twenty-four films, both older and contemporary, including Vagabond, India Song, Bhaji on the Beach, Chocolat, and Daughters of the Dust lay out a complete and powerful framework for reading women's film.

THE WORLD’S SCRIPTURES contain stories that our ancestors used to explain and teach things that they did not understand. Today, billions of people still believe in and dogmatically promulgate the stories and explanations the ancients recorded. Since those scriptures were written, scientists from all over the world have discovered the real answers to the questions the ancients faced. A Song of Humanity is a lyrical summary of what we Wise Men (Homo Sapiens) have learned about our universe, our world and we ourselves. Many chapters end with open-ended questions inviting readers to clarify their thoughts and beliefs. Practical advice for modern understanding and living weaves its way throughout this handbook for understanding where we came from, who we are, and where we are going.
