Stories in stone : the Sdok Kok Thom inscription & the enigma of Khmer history /John Burgess. – Bangkok, Thailand : River Books, 2010. 197 p. : ill. ; 22 cm. ISBN 9786167339016. LCCN 2010354500.


About the Publication:

The founding of an empire, the settling of frontier lands, a king's gifting of gold pitchers and black-eared stallions to a Brahmin priest. These and other remarkable stories come down to us in the Sdok Kok Thom Inscription, one of the world's most important but least known ancient testaments.

Recovered at a ruined temple in Thailand close to the Cambodian border, the 340-line chronicle unlocks the early history of the Khmer Empire, the fabled Hindu civilization that built Angkor Wat and scores of other huge stone temples in Southeast Asia.

Yet the great annal has remained little known outside of expert circles. In this full and highly readable account, former Washington Post correspondent John Burgess traces the impact of the inscription, which was carved onto a sandstone monolith around the year 1052 AD, abandoned to the wild for centuries, then decoded by French colonialists.

He carries the story forward to modern times, when the temple where the inscription was found emerged as a haven for Cambodian refugees and resistance fighters during the war in their homeland. Today the temple is again at peace, its mission of preserving history accomplished.

Includes a full translation of the inscription by Dr. Chhany Sak-Humphry with assistance from Dr. Philip N. Jenner.

"While reporting on Cambodians fleeing war and revolution in 1979, John Burgess came across an ancient Khmer temple hidden in the bush...30 years later he returned to that temple to decipher its history. The result is this lovely book that tells the story of the temple and the larger Angkor Empire levened with Burgess' own odyssey to recover that history."

--Elizabeth Becker, author of When the War was Over

The makers & keepers of Singapore history / edited by Loh Kah Seng & Liew Kai Khiun. Singapore : Ethos Books : Singapore Heritage Society, c2010. xvi, 347 p. ; 25 cm. ISBN 9789810863579. LCCN 2010353562.

About the Publication:
This is a unique book in the field of history. While it is about historical matters and also about historical materials and historiography to some extent, it is really about something else: it is about how a society is able to produce its history.

It is about the conditions of historical knowledge production— political, institutional, global, social and epistemological. It is organized around three gates: the ‘front gates’ of institutions, the ‘side gates’ of transnational sources, and the ‘memory gates’ of oral histories.

I like this book⦠A retired university lecturer made a pilgrimage from Chiang Mai to Samui Island, his birthplace ⦠and stopped over at Suan Mokeâ¦The author talked about his journey and what he encountered. The individuals he met along the way were exquisite. The book teaches us both philosophy and religion.

Tinta Emas di Kanvas Dunia : Jejak Ahli Bedah Saraf, DR. Eka Julianta Wahjoepramono, Sp.B.S./ Pitan Daslani – Jakarta : penerbit Buku Kompas, 2010. 226 p. : ill. (some col.); 22 cm. ISBN 9789797094669. LCCN 2010339694

About the Publication :
If you think you're one in a million then he's one in TWO millions. A surgeon is so rare among Indonesians. Out of Indonesia's 240 million population, the country has only 120 surgeons, so the ratio is 1 in 2 millions. Imagine one surgeon serving two million people.

From the small group of Indonesian surgeons, Prof. Dr. Eka Julianta Wahyoepramono is one of the priveleged. He is a neurosurgeon, specialized in brainstem surgery, undoubtedly a very rare profession in this country. which is an achievement never done by any other Indonesian doctors. For that reason, Dr. Eka Julianta deserves his biography written by Pitan Daslani
