Wouldn’t it be great to be free from financial worries? To be able to live the life you choose instead of working your life away? You can achieve this if you understand how the economy works, how consumerism seduces you into debt, and how to use the tools at your disposal correctly. Financial independence is too important to let others manage it for you. Morten Strange, financial analyst, ‘citizen economist’ and naturalist, draws from his 50 years of experience through the 1973 oil crisis and various stock market crashes and economic recessions to show you how to manage your money so you can be financially free. He explains, in simple terms, the mechanics of financial products and types of investments such as savings, bonds, shares and property, and offers practical guidelines you can apply immediately. What sets this book apart is its focus on the current economy and the ominous direction that it is taking. While most analysts focus on short-term solutions, Be Financially Free takes a global view. In this time of impending ecological limits and the end of economic growth, what will you need to do to achieve – and protect – your financial independence in the long term? Illustrated with charts, diagrams and case studies, this revelatory book will empower you to embark on the path to financial freedom.

Photography in Japan 1853-1912

Photography in Japan 1853-1912 is a fascinating visual record of Japanese culture during its metamorphosis from a feudal society to a modern, industrial nation at a time when the art of photography was still in its infancy. The 350 rare and antique photos in this book, most of them published here for the first time, chronicle the introduction of photography in Japan and early Japanese photography. The images are more than just a history of photography in Japan, they are vital in helping to understand the dramatic changes that occurred in Japan during the mid-nineteenth century. These rare Japanese photographs—whether sensational or everyday, intimate or panoramic—document a nation about to abandon its traditional ways and enter the modern era. Taken between 1853 and 1912 by the most important Japanese and foreign photographers working in Japan, this is the first book to document the history of early photography in Japan a comprehensive and systematic way.

Byram mangrove forest with a land area of 240 ha is considered as a degraded mangrove forest. However, the union of different elements, both man-made and natural – the rubbish dump, effluent ponds, intermittent semi-submerged skeletal trees, a mangrove estuary – somehow works in harmony to attract a number of bird species to such a small area. Famously known to avid bird watcher as the Pulau Burung Landfill Site, this semi-aerobic landfill is located in the Byram mangrove forest. Byram mangrove forest is part and parcel of this unique ecosystem. The Pictorial Guide to the Plant and Bird Life of Byram Mangrove Forest, Penang illustrates photos of plant and bird species thriving within the Byram mangrove. Thus, it is a recommended reading for educators, policy makers, academicians, researchers, students and land managers. Key features include: § more than 100 full-colour photos covering major plumage variation, § accurate and latest text describing the habitat, behaviour and status of birds visiting Byram mangrove forest, and § a magnificent guide that successfully captures the richness and biodiversity of the Byram mangrove, in an accessible form. This work should be considered as a continuity of another collaborative effort between Universiti Sains Malaysia and the Penang State Forestry Department on the mangrove ecosystem, from which a book, namely the Ecological Survey on Mangrove Forests: A Case Study of Balik Pulau and Pantai Acheh was published in 2006 by Penerbit Universiti Sains Malaysia.
