SORT BY Relevancy
Samuel Hawley was born and grew up in South Korea, the son of missionary parents. After earning BA and MA degrees in history from Queen's University, he returned to East Asia to teach English for a year and ended up staying there for nearly two decades before retiring in Kingston, Ontario to become a full-time writer. He is the author of the nonfiction books Speed Duel: The Inside Story of the Land Speed Record in the Sixties, which received starred reviews in both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal; I Just Ran: Percy Williams, World’s Fastest Human, named one of the five "Best Sports Books of 2011” by the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation); and the monumental The Imjin War, the most comprehensive account in English of Japan’s sixteenth-century invasion of Korea and attempted conquest of China, hailed as “magnificent” by the South China Morning Post. Bad Elephant Far Stream is his first novel.
Samuel Hawley was born and grew up in South Korea, the son of missionary parents. After earning BA and MA degrees in history at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, he returned to East Asia with his wife to work as a teacher for nearly two decades, first in Japan and then Korea, ending in 2007 as an associate professor of English at Yonsei University in Seoul. He additionally served for three years as head of Yonsei’s 3,000-student Communicative English Department, and as publications chairman and editor for the Royal Asiatic Society, Korea Branch. He continues to serve as general editor of the Society’s annual journal Transactions, the oldest Korean studies journal in the world, published since 1900.
It was in Japan in the early 1990s that Samuel started writing for magazines and newspapers on topics ranging from Japanese fashion and international travel to the world of sumo wrestling, daimyo clocks and fishing at urban tsuribori. By the late ‘90s he had turned his attention to books. His most notable work from this period is The Imjin War (co-published by the Royal Asiatic Society, Seoul and the Insitute of East Asian Studies, UC Berkeley, 2005) the most comprehensive account in English of Japan’s sixteenth-century invasion of Korea and attempted conquest of China, an event of seismic importance in the history of East Asia. He next focused on US Navy ensign and American diplomat George C. Foulk, Washington’s representative in Seoul at the time of Korea’s opening to the West. Foulk, one of the first Westerners to learn to speak Korean and to travel extensively in the country, was perhaps the foremost Western expert at the time on the “Hermit Kingdom." Hawley's interest in Foulk resulted in two books, America's Man in Korea, and Inside the Hermit Kingdom (both Lexington Books, 2007).
This weeks Bad Attitude Guide To Good Citizenship has been postponed to bring you a show, hosted by special guest: General Gonzo S. Patton, here to discuss the goings on in the media, in America and to solve the problems of the day. Lord help us all, once the General has control, no telling what will happen. I can assure you of one thing, we took him off his meds a week ago and he keeps pulling at the chains ranting about a "grassy book suppository".
The Bad and the ugly :
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The state fire marshal’s office have charged a 22-year-old man for cutting a firefighter hose during the Baltimore riots Monday.
According to the fire marshal, Greg Bailey was identified as the man who “intentionally damaging a charged water supply fire hose” when firefighters were battling the blaze at the CVS at North and Pennsylvania avenues.
Really? You cut a f'ing fire hose after looters set a store on fire, you do it live on TV and do it again.
Don't mess with mom!
The teenage boy publicly shamed when his mom smacked him around at the Baltimore riots this week said he knows she "really cares about me."
A video shows Michael Singleton being dragged from the protests and whacked by his mother, Toya Graham, after she saw him on television and recognized a key piece of clothing.
"What caught my eye was his sweatpants," she told ABC News. "Even though he had on all black, I knew those sweatpants he had on, they had a stripe on the side of it and then his eye contact met mine. And I knew that was my son."
