Revision with unchanged content. Traditional contrastive rhetoric research is often restricted to the textual level of analysis. By providing both a textual and contextual view of genre across languages and cultures, this book presents a framework for contrastive rhetoric research which moves beyond the text into the context of production and interpretation of the text. The book examines the textual patterning of Australian and Chinese commentaries and interpersonal and intertextual features of the texts, as well as considers possible contextual factors which might contribute to the formation of the newspaper commentaries in the two different languages and cultures. This analysis contributes towards answering the questions: How do writers in different languages and cultures position themselves in relation to the topics that they write about? How do they manipulate the topic and address their readers by the use of various linguistic strategies and devices? How do the roles of the press and opinion discourses mediate and influence constructions of the Chinese and English commentaries? How do discourses of terrorism in these two settings relate to textual and intertextual practices? The book is addressed to researchers in contrastive rhetoric and discourse research. It is also directed towards scholars in intercultural communication and translation.

Roisin and Francois meet at a research station on the frozen ice sheets of Antarctica; each has been brought to this wild, remote location by a fierce desire to explore the world, but to do so they have both had to make difficult choices. As the story loops back through their lives, catching up with them only when a comet is visible in the skies above, we see how their lives have intertwined but never intersected until this moment. Theirs are lives filled with love and hope and history and heartbreak, in a story that shows how strangers can be connected and ghosts can be real, and how the way we choose to see the world can be as desolate or as beautiful as the comets themselves.

A young peasant girl is sold as servant and apprentice to a renowned geisha house. She tells her story many years later from the Waldorf Astoria in New York. Her memoirs conjure up the perfection and the ugliness of life behind rice-paper screens, where young girls learn the arts of geisha - dancing and singing, how to wind the kimono, how to walk and pour tea, and how to beguile the land's most powerful men. This story is a rare and utterly engaging experience, summoning up a quarter century of Japan's dramatic history, and opening a window into a half-hidden world of eroticism and enchantment, exploitation and degradation.
