              What price does a family pay for an unapproved birth? Li Fu and Mei, farmers from a far-flung province seeking a livelihood in the capital, Beijing, flout the country's One-Child Policy by giving birth to a second daughter, Ying. Unable to pay the hefty penalty, their baby is for...cefully taken by corrupted officials and sold to an orphanage, and is eventually put up for adoption. Stricken by grief, the family falls apart. Li, obsessed with finding his missing daughter, leads a dysfunctional and chaotic life with his eldest daughter Yan after his wife walks out of the family. Seventeen years passed before he eventually locates Ying in San Francisco. However, his dream of a reunited family is quickly crushed when Ying, now an all-American girl, cannot accept her biological family's un-American way of life. Intolerant of their behavior and illegal immigrant status, Ying does the unthinkable - calling the immigration department to deport her family back to China. Overcome with guilt and remorse, Ying decides to go to China to face her father and tell him the truth about their arrest and deportation. Told from the perspectives of the two sisters, this novel reveals the dark side of cross-cultural adoption and love between father and daughter. The story is inspired by actual accounts of missing children in China, some of whom were abducted by corrupted officials for profiteering.

              Tony is one of millions of Filipinos scattered across the globe, working to send money back to his family. But unlike other migrants, he's no pushover at work and doesn't live in fear of losing his visa. Squatting in the office with an Irish co-worker to save money, Tony hustles ...as a web designer and battles with a ball-busting Scottish boss during the day. At night, he washes away the loneliness and fights the enormous pressure with booze and weed, saving most of what he earns to send back home. But the money from all the hard work never seems to be enough. If it's not a new phone for his teenaged daughter, it's for a cousin's birthday or an uncle who needs funding for a business. Everyone 's counting on his salary. So Tony plugs away, seeking small comfort in video calls with his family, finding short-lived happiness in skateboarding in empty carparks, and diving deep into the dark side of Sydney - away from the posh lights of the Harbor Bridge and smack dab into the seedy suburbs. Tony's life as a migrant begins to unravel as events come to a head, and he's forced to face the consequences of his actions. Translated from Filipino by Peter Dominique Mutuc, Migrantik is told through the lens of economic, emotional, and occasionally actual violence.

              While organisations need stand out products and services to be competitive, to remain competitive, organisations need much more. We believe the much more includes how organisations manage people, culture and data. The world of work is changing at an unprecedented rate. Other than... the COVID-19 pandemic, there are four other disruptive forces including demographic imbalances, geopolitics, technology and economic contraction that are accelerating the future of work. Written by Jaclyn Lee and Jovina Ang, the book focuses on the three fundamental elements of organisational success. The book is unique because it is a culmination of the authors' practical experiences and observations of how leaders and managers are managing the modern organisation. The authors draw upon the best practices from the top employers in Asia and across the world to illustrate the proven strategies for inculcating a digital and a data driven culture for making the right decisions and getting the most out of people. And they also refer to the many insights from leading thought leaders to substantiate their arguments throughout the book.

              Malaysian Son is the story of Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Setiawangsa. Growing up privileged under the authoritarian regime of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the imprisonment of Anwar Ibrahim led him to join the Reformasi movement. As a member of t...he multiracial People's Justice Party (KEADILAN), he later became the youngest elected state representative in the 2008 General Elections. In 2018, as Youth Leader of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition, he participated in the 2018 campaign against Prime Minister Najib Razak, spending time in jail and the courts. PH achieved a historic victory but, in spite of warnings from Nik who was a backbench MP, failed to achieve a cohesive and stable government. It eventually collapsed in 2020, leading to years of political instability that has yet to abate. Malaysian Son is a must read for all who want to understand the country's tumultuous recent history.
