In this book, the start of my journeys was Hanoi - my native city, then travels were spreading from near to far. The first story was “Hanoi two thousands years” with legends of my home-city. Nhatrang, a city in the central region, and Mekong delta in the south region of Vietnam were two next visits. Other stories were my feeling and impressions of Vientian with friendliness, Angkor with a ride on elephant, experiences of many travels in Thailand, contrary impression of Myanmar , astonishment in Shenzhen, trading in Singapore, the world is not flat in India, Israeli charity… “Visa” was a special story about my experiences before travels. “Author's confidence” and “Short extracts of other travels” were the last in the book.

A major fraction of star formation in the universe occurs in starbursts. These regions of particularly rapid star formation are often located towards the centers of host galaxies. Studies of this kind of star formation at high redshift have produced astonishing results over recent years that were only possible with the latest generation of large ground-based and space telescopes. The papers collected in this volume present these results in the context of the much firmer foundation of star formation in the local universe, and they emphasize all the important topics, from star formation in different environments to the cosmic star formation history.

Since Luna and Lunar Orbiter photographed the far side of the Moon, the mysterious dichotomy between the face of the Moon as we see it from Earth and the side of the Moon that is hidden has puzzled lunar scientists. As we learned more from the Apollo sample return missions and later robotic satellites, the puzzle literally deepened, showing asymmetry of the crust and mantle, all the way to the core of the Moon. This book summarizes the author’s successful search for an ancient impact feature, the Near Side Megabasin of the Moon and the extensions to impact theory needed to find it. The implications of this ancient event are developed to answer many of the questions about the history of the Moon.

“Things Near and Far” was is the second part of Arthur Machen's autobiography. The first part is contained in “Far Off Things” (1922) and the third in “The London Adventure” (1924). Arthur Machen (1863 – 1947) was a Welsh author and renowned mystic during the 1890s and early 20th century who garnered literary acclaim for his contributions to the supernatural, horror, and fantasy fiction genres. His seminal novella “The Great God Pan” (1890) has become a classic of horror fiction, with Stephen King describing it as one of the best horror stories ever written in the English language. Other notable fans of his gruesome tales include William Butler Yeats and Arthur Conan Doyle; and his work has been compared to that of Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde. “The Glorious Mystery” is not to be missed by those with an interest in the life and work of this seminal writer. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
