Romancing the East : a literary odyssey from the heart of darkness to the River Kwai by Jerry Hopkins( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the time of Marco Polo's trek across the Central Asian desert to the empire of the mighty Kahn, no other place on earth, not the languid South Pacific or even deepest, darkest Africa has so challenged and enchanted the Western imagination as have the fabled lands of the East! However soaked in blood its history and no matter how unsettling its social conditions and poverty, Asia has never lost its irresistible attraction or mystic. It has long been an inspiration for Western novelists, so much so that more than 5000 novels have been set in Asia in the English language alone. Storied names like Rudyard Kipling, Joseph Conrad, Pearl S. Buck, George Orwell, Graham Greene, E.M. Forster and many more have used their experiences in Asia as a vibrant backdrop for some of the world's most famous works of literature. In Romancing the East, best-selling author Jerry Hopkins combines his research and his own experiences as a longtime expatriate with an intimate knowledge of Asia and offers us a unique perspective on the impact of Eastern culture in Western literature."--Publisher's website

Why are these people smiling? Writer Jerry Hopkins came to Thailand for a visit in the 1980s to find out, and ended up a permanent resident with a temporary visa -a big, white farang haunting the bars and back alleys of Bangkok. His essays explore the mystery and mayhem of "The Land of Smiles " to hilarious -and sometimes disturbing -effect. Travel with him to a place where whisky is rum.

The Hula by Jerry Hopkins( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hawai'i in the 1970s was a vibrant time; a Hawaiian Renaissance was being led, in part, by the renewed popularity of and interest in hula as an integral part of Hawaiian culture. The Hula was originally written by Jerry Hopkins in 1978, with assistance from Rebecca Erickson, and it has been a significant narrative on the dance form ever since. Hopkin's book was the first to offer readers a comprehensive history of hula aimed at a general audience. Three decades later, The Hula has not been superceded. This reissue of The Hula, revised and edited by Hawaiian music and hula expert Amy Stillman and enhanced by poignant photographs and graphics, makes an overview of hula once again available to new generations of hula dancers and fans alike. -- from back cover
