Towards Illiberal Democracy in Pacific Asia (St Antony's Series)
Towards Illiberal Democracy in Pacific Asia (St Antony's Series)
This book challenges the view that liberal democracy is the inevitable outcome of economic modernization. Focusing on the stable and prosperous societies of Pacific Asia, it argues that contemporary political arrangements are legitimised by the values of hierarchy, familism and harmony. An arrangement that clearly contrasts with a western understanding of political liberalism and the communicatory democracy it facilitates. Instead of political change resulting from a demand for autonomy by interest groups in civil society, the adoption of democratic practice in Asia ought to be viewed primarily as a state strategy to manage socio-economic change.

Hovenweep Castle
Hovenweep Castle
☼ PHOTOGRAPH PARTICULARS ☼ These photographs are from the Square Tower section of Hovenweep National Monument. An outlier of Chaco Canyon, it is a good place to get a feel for the architecture and “place” where the Anasazi briefly prospered, then moved and dispersed (becoming the Hopi, Zuni, and other modern Pueblo people of today). We took the rim trail loop which gives you a good look at the highly variable masonry buildings the Anasazi built. Buy and read the book: People of Chaco by Frederick Frazier before you visit Hovenweep or Chaco Canyon for a good understanding of the fantastic history of the people, who built these structures and lived out their lives here. If you read this book, you will also see why I had such an interest in traveling the Turquoise Trail and visiting Cerrillos, New Mexico. This is where the turquoise came from that was found in such abundance at Chaco Canyon….a stone very important to the ancient ones and modern day Pueblo people. At Hovenweep there are holes in the outside walls of many of the buildings designed to direct a shaft of light to a particular niche or place on a plaster wall in the interior to mark important celestial events (summer and winter solstices). These people grew corn, beans, squash and amaranth (grain). They may have grown cotton as well. Like the Chaco people, they had access to far off trade goods from the Pacific and Mexico. Turquoise, sea shells, macaw feathers, and copper bells have been discovered at many of the sites. Turquoise and fine pottery may have been their primary trade exchange items. Most of the buildings you see when you take the loop hike were constructed in the 1200’s. Amazing to gaze through the same windows they did and try to imagine the lives that they led. ☼ ACTIVITIES DAY FOUR OF TWELVE ☼ Day Four was pretty much a “travel” day on this road trip. We left Moab Thursday morning and headed for Farmington, New Mexico. We took a short trip west into the start of the Needles district of Canyonlands NP to see Newspaper Rock. Years ago, my wife and I had traveled into the Needles district with our four wheel drive Isuzu Trooper, driven the sand wash down Salt Creek and Horse Canyon to hike to Fortress and Castle Arch. Ed and I decided at Newspaper Rock to back track a short ways and try a paved “loop” route into Monticello. We climbed high and steadily on FR 174. The views were outstanding. At a “T” we turned right to a small frozen lake set in an aspen grove (Shay Road to Aspen Flat). Returning to Forest Road 174 we almost made it to the summit, when we ran into snow on the road too deep to tackle. A newer car had been left in the middle of the road, where they had become stuck. We retraced our route down the side of the Abajo Mountains (Abajo translates to “under” in Spanish), then on to Blanding, Utah. Here we had one of the best meals on the trip (Homestead Steakhouse). We visited the modern “Edge of the Cedars” Native American museum at Blanding then drove to Hovenweep National Monument. I kept shaking my head at all the changes that had taken place over the years since my wife and I made trips to the area. In the 70s the Edge of the Cedars was just a dirt trail to an overlook and pour over by some cliff dwellings. Back then, we had driven miles of dirt road to Hovenweep, to an unmanned small ranger’s station and parked right next to Castle ruin. We hiked down into the canyon to square tower ruin. On the last trip I filmed my wife and our kids hiking the area with a VHS movie camera. But now, Ed and I drove his comfortable Jeep on paved roads all the way to a large modern well staffed visitors’ center at Hovenweep, where the trail out to Castle ruin is paved. No longer are you allowed to hike down into the canyon floor beside Square Tower ruin. That said, the loop hike along the rim that has been developed, the excellent visitors’ center, and the helpful rangers - - make a visit and hike worthwhile. It also provides more protection to the ruins that unfortunately, occasionally are vandalized. From Hovenweep we headed for Farmington via back roads, with me constantly having heated arguments with the GPS navigator I choose to call “The NUVI lady”. She is usually right but when she errs it is a big one. We didn’t travel the route we intended to Farmington, but we got there. Shiprock was a footnote stop on the way to Farmington. With rain in the area we didn’t want to take any of the dirt roads leading close to it, so satisfied ourselves with “roadside” snapshots of the brooding volcanic neck that was such a classic landmark to early travelers (Shiprock). ☼ 3,875 MILE/12 DAY ~ 4 CORNERS ROAD TRIP OVERVIEW ☼ At the start of year 2011, I made tentative plans to take a two week solo “road trip” through the Four Corners area (The Colorado Plateau), during the last half of March. Then, if my wife could get the time needed off from her part time job, I also planned a “road trip” vacation to the Southwest, in April with he

☼ PHOTOGRAPH PARTICULARS ☼ Why build what appears to be a watch tower and/or a "defensive" structure at the bottom and head of a canyon? Your theory is likely as valid as any others. It makes you think, each time you look at what they built, how it was built, and where it was located. These photographs are from the Square Tower section of Hovenweep National Monument.

Teaching with Educational Technology in the 21st Century: The Case of the Asia Pacific Region
With the emphasis on faculty experiences and efforts to enhance higher learning in less-developed regions, Teaching with Educational Technology in the 21st Century: The Case of the Asia-Pacific Region is a comprehensive study of teaching applications involving educational technology.
The book encourages collaboration across geographical borders to promote information literacy, facilitate the learning process, and to establish a greater infusion of technology throughout the region. Intended as a guide, Teaching with Educational Technology in the 21st Century: The Case of the Asia-Pacific Region looks clearly at the impact of distance education programs, articulation issues and faculty technical competency levels, and offers solutions for policy makers and educators to remain current with basic technical applications. It explains how education is no longer confined to a geographical space and reaches out as a model to all interested in promoting quality higher education across geographical and cultural borders.
