Hidden Treasures from the Author: Jackie J. Kim. Ten first-generation Korean women who migrated to Japan during Korea's colonial period tell their compelling stories in Hidden Treasures. Powerful narratives of migration, minority life, gender discrimination, and the often difficult social relations between Korean immigrants and the Japanese are included, written in the women's own words. During the colonial era, many Koreans came to Japan as migrant workers in search of a better life or were drafted as laborers. After 1945 they lost citizenship and were left to exist on the fringes of society. With fewer societal options available, women in particular were forced to transform and adapt. The women in this volume participated in tumultuous times in the modern history of Korea and Japan, involving physical, psychological, geographic, and cultural displacements. These women transformed themselves in multiple ways: one from colonial subject to diasporic subject, another from a young and naive virgin bride to a self-made matriarch. Each transformation involved risk, determination, and pain as the women grappled with multilayered structures of gendered, colonial, ethnic, and socioeconomic relations of power. Many of these transformations, however, also entailed self-enhancement, fulfillment, accomplishment, and, at times, triumph and joy. An introduction by leading researcher Sonia Ryang provides context for the very personal stories of these ten women. This unparalleled social history of Korean women in Japan will engage both students and general readers.

Hidden Treasures from the Author: Gene Levine. A stereogram is a two-dimensional image that, when viewed properly, creates a stunning, almost magical impression of depth. Objects seem to float or to pop out of patterns. And these complex and sophisticated designs, produced by two of the most famous stereogram creators in the world, are state of the art. They’re simply among the most beautiful and amazing available today, combining different types of effects in a single picture. Sometimes, the trick to seeing the stereographic vision won’t be instantly obvious; you might need to stare at the picture for a while, adjust your gaze, or look slightly beyond the page before everything falls in line. The results are worth it--and once you’ve learned the technique, a whole world of art and spectacle will be yours.

The Hidden Treasures Of The Ancient Qabalah from the Author: Elias Gewurz. Strength and beauty are the two attractive elements of our nature, but the masculine strength and the feminine beauty are in reality one and the same thing. That which we admire as strength in the man is the same element that fascinates us as beauty in the woman. - from "The Feminine Elements in Man and Their Redeeming Power" Kabbalah, the "Secret Doctrine of the Jews," was for many centuries the exclusive province of religious scholars who could read the old Hebrew Chaldaic language in which it was set down in the 12th century, when its mysteries were already ancient. But the thirst for spiritual enlightenment in our complicated age ensured that its arcane wisdom would inevitably come to light. Here, in this 1918 edition, we can share in the beautiful insights of Kabbalah, into the difficulties of attaining peace, the dilemmas of justice and mercy, the need for spiritual regeneration, the soulful exploration of time and space, and the arcane paths of union with God. Anyone with a yearning for knowledge of the numinous and the serenity it brings will find succor here. ELIAS GEWURZ also wrote Mysteries of the Qabalah (1922) and Beautiful Thoughts of the Ancient Hebrews (1924).
