Byron started it. The original rockstar. It was thanks to Byron that Itchy wound up living in Chamonix Mont Blanc, the death-sport capital of the world, among the high mountains and low morals. For the last few years he tried to numb the pain of his past with alcohol and adrenaline, but now a serial rapist is stalking Cham's tourist-thronged streets, haunting the same shadows as Itchy and triggering an obsession which will lead him far from Europe's peaks, to the depths of the valley and himself. The promise of Jonathan Trigell's first novel, Boy A, is confirmed in this depiction of the world of extreme sports and adrenaline junkies, where all the violent mistakes of a man's life come back to haunt him.

Cham and Whiteson "explore the biggest unknowns in the universe, why these things are still mysteries, and what a lot of smart people are doing to figure out the answers (or at least ask the right questions). While they're at it, they ... demystify many complicated things we do know about, from quarks and neutrinos to gravitational waves and exploding black holes"--Amazon.com.

This intriguing account of the vigorous survival of an Islamic community in the strife-torn borderlands of the lower Mekong delta, and of its creative accommodation to the modernising reforms of the Vietnamese government, shows how Islam provides a unifying focus for the Cham people in their diversely-constituted rural settlements. Although officially regarded as one of Vietnam's nationial minority groups, the multilingual Cham are part of a cosmopolitan, transnational community, and as traders, pilgrims and labour migrants are found throughout mainland Southeast Asia and beyond it.

Despite the extensive analysis of the historical, political and legal background of many Balkan conflicts in recent years, little attention has been paid to the tragedy of the Cham ethnic community. In 1913 the territories inhabited by almost half of the Albanian population were exempted from the boundaries of the new state of Albania. Nearly 700,000 ethnic Albanians found their homelands incorporated into Serbia and Greece and the land of the Chams, a coastal area between southern Albania and north-west Greece known as 'Chameria', was entirely incorporated into Greece. Since that time, the predominantly Muslim Chams have faced severe persecution in Greece, including forced expulsion from their homes, particularly under the Metaxas regime in the 1930s and also during World War II. The documents gathered together in this book address all of the periods of forced expulsions of the Cham population from Greece. The publication of these documents provides an unparalleled historical record of the Cham story, but more importantly illustrates the violations of human rights inflicted upon the Cham community. This book will be essential reading for scholars of Balkan history, politics and legal issues. It will provide a fascinating insight into one of the forgotten tragedies of the twentieth century.
