A Month by the Sea: Encounters in Gaza by Dervla Murphy
6 of 9 people found the following review helpful
I have been to gaza, before the blockade and it was a pretty miserable place then. Since the war and since the blockade everything done to the gazans by the Israelies is to leave em with less then nothing. However one sees the indomitable spirit of these people, how admirable they are in face of this nazi treatment. The Israelies treat the Palestinians exactly as the Germans treated the Jews and the world allows it to happen in e 21 st century. Israel is indeed a cancer on the map.

Malayan Spymaster: Memoirs of a Rubber Planter, Ba&hellip by Boris Hembry
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
This book for anyone who has lived in Malaya is a Must. How a young man did so many things in a lifetime was amazing. He also chose a wife who was willing and capable to share all the hardships, constant moving, danger and endless separations to be his Helpmate in all of these adventures. I could not put it down. Not only is it a multi adventure story, but it is of a life well lived, serviing his country and helping Malaysia to be the success it is. All down to people like Boris Hembry
