'Memoirs of such richness are rare . . . a joy' JAMES NAUGHTIE 'A remarkable personal journey, by one of the great political correspondents of our world - eloquent, enlightening, exhilarating' PHILIPPE SANDS A trailblazer for women in journalism, Hella Pick arrived in Britain in 1939 as a child refugee from Austria. Over nearly four decades she covered the volatile global scene, first in West Africa, followed by America and long periods in Europe. In her thirty-five years with the Guardian she reported on the end of Empire in West Africa, the assassination of President Kennedy, Martin Luther King's march from Selma to Montgomery, the Vietnam peace negotiation in Paris, the 1968 student revolt in France, the birth of the Solidarity movement in Poland, and the closing stages of the Cold War. A request for coffee on board a Soviet ship anchored in Malta led to a chat with Mikhail Gorbachev. A request for an interview with Willy Brandt led to a personal friendship that enabled her to come to terms with Germany's Nazi past. Her book is also a clarion call for preserving professionalism in journalism at a time when social media muddy the waters between fact and fiction, and between reporting and commentary. INVISIBLE WALLS tells the dramatic story of how a Kindertransport survivor won the trust and sometimes the friendship of world leaders, and with them a wide range of remarkable men and women. It speaks frankly of personal heartache and of a struggle over her Jewish identity. It is also the intensely touching story of how, despite a gift for friendship and international recognised achievements as a woman journalist, a continuing sense of personal insecurity has confronted her with a series of invisible walls.

If you ask a school boy about the ideal life ... that is one without homework and very long vacations. The summer vacation is the ideal time for them ... but still one day the autumn is coming. If you ask an employe in a corporation about the ideal life ... he will say that he would love as the working week to have 2 days of work a day instead of 5. The school boy, no matter the age ... is not feeling free. Years ago ... when he was not in school ... he felt the freedom of doing only what he wanted to do. The employee from the corporation, even if he knows that he is paid very, very well ... he is not feeling free either. But why?! Well ... cause the society is teaching us ... somehow by force ... to live in ... “prisons”. Now let me give you another example. Let’s assume the case of a businessman, that already had success, has a beautiful house, has money, a good company, a wife, beautiful kids .... basically everything. And ... still ... if you ask him if he is happy ... he will only reply that a piece from the puzzle is missing. I know lots of businessmen that have a great success ... and even if they have everything ... almost all of them have a mistress that is completing their lives. It’s a non sense ... i know ... cause most of them have the perfect life scenario. An amazing house. A amazing car ... or cars. A beautiful wife. Very nice children. ... and?! Why this nonsense?! Why does a person look for something else when already has the perfect life?! Well ... cause what we call ... perfection ... is only a dogmatic way of seeing life. The missing piece from the puzzle is the mistress ... that makes him feel loved in a totally different way. She makes him be ... a free person. A hobby would make the school boy and even the employee from the corporation ... to love what is doing ... and also feel free ... enjoying the present activity. You see ... no matter what path we chose in life ... the moment when we forget about the dogmatic path of living ... we feel the freedom. We feel alive. Our actions ... will look like a total nonsense to the others ... but we will be happy. The human being is looking for perfection ... but the happiness is not found in there. The dogmatism will never help us to ... be us. But ... on the path of discovering ... the real path ... at least we will have the guts to ... dream ... about the real freedom.

Our wants for food, housing, medicine, transportation, luxuries, and all the other benefits of industrialization have resulted in the exploitation of our natural surroundings. We know our actions affect the physical world we depend on, so why must we be faced with catastrophic problems--overpopulation, the loss of bio-diversity, global warming, and the like--before we act to protect the planet's ecosystem--and then often inadequately? With astute analysis Peter Seidel explores the complex convergence of psychological, social, economic, and political factors that keep us from acting in our own self-interest. An environmental and human relations visionary, Seidel proposes adoption of a new "world model," a "universal ethic," and long-term societal goals. Educators and journalists must give us a better understanding of ourselves-creatures evolved to function in a hunter-gatherer society, not in the complex, hazardous world we have created. We must learn to use our minds to control our primitive drives rather than to satisfy them.

The disintegration of Soviet Union in 1991, led to five new countries gaining independence in Central Asia. The Muslims, a predominant majority in the region, had faced religious suppression under the rule of the communist. Thus, began an era where Islam was practiced with larger freedom. However, the governance of most of these states was with the autocratic leaders who had grown under the influence of communism. Therefore, it was but natural for them to soon impose religious restrictions. This close tussle in almost all these newly raised states, led to emergence of some radical groups. Over the years, the influence of such groups has spread to the extent of posing a threat to the stability of country like China. A foothold for radical groups in China is a possibility as its western province of Xinjiang has historical links with Central Asia and was part of Turkistan. Today Xinjiang due to its ethnic violence between the Uyghur Muslims and the Han Chinese is acknowledged to be quite volatile. The link of Uyghur's with Central Asia has further compounded China problem. Apart from the extremists, China is also concerned regarding the growing American presence within the region of Central Asia. To negate the American influence and restrain any turbulence on its western province supported by the extremist of Central Asia, there is a need for China to review its external and internal policies which will steer it towards a more politically and economically stable nation. Failing to addresses such simmering issues the nation will be trapped within the folds of 'THE INVISIBLE WALL OF CHINA'.
