HEARING OTHERS' VOICES
A transcultural and interdisciplinary series edited by physicist Roh-Suan Tung and anthropologist Ruth Finnegan for Balestier Press (Singapore and London). It is designed, in simple and straightforward language, to inform and engage general readers, under-graduates and, above all, young adults and students to reflect on who and where they are and to explore recent advances in thought, unaccountably overlooked areas of the world, and key issues of the day
The first volumes were released in November 2018, preceded by the October launch of the Chinese version of Rob Janoff’s amazing personal account, Taking a bite out off the apple, a graphic designer’s tale, in Chengdu, west China.
Other books will appear over the coming years, many also with translations into Chinese and other world languages.
Less textbooks than sites for reflection and challenge, the series gives readers a unique route into greater awareness of our wonderful world, far and near, east and west, past and present.
The series logo has, by his choice, been created specially for Balestier Press by the celebrated designer Rob Janoff, creator of the Apple logo, hopefully a feature that will play well with a young adult computer-mad audience.
