Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

It is known as the Island of Gods - and what happens in Bali might leave the spiritual guardians of this dreamy holiday destination weeping tears of dismay or gazing down with contentment that all is well in this Hindu domain. These are the events that made headlines around the world, or which were quietly played out behind a veil of tropical serenity. More than four million tourists, both rich and budget-conscious, visit the island each year; it is inevitable that things go wrong. Drugs, surfing, murder, love, death on the roads, hangovers, bombs, relaxation...they are all part of a cocktail of life in a land of looming volcanoes, hillside rice paddies and idyllic beaches Bali was the backdrop for two extraordinarily colourful weddings that ended in tears - the 'marriage' of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall and the ceremony that saw an English model joined in matrimony to a Prince who never was. There are the drug smugglers, such as the infamous Bali Nine, Schapelle Corby and the English grandmother Lindsay Sandiford, and the story of an American hold-up man who hit the convenience stores with a knife and a Balinese wife who plotted the brutal murder of her British-Australian husband. Then there are are the terrorists who killed more than 200 tourists and local people in an infamous bombing and the shocking story of the 'Body in the Suitcase' Murder, when a wealthy US socialite was brutally murdered by her daughter and her boyfriend.

Sweatshops In Paradise
Author: Virginia Lynn Sudbury
Publisher: iUniverse
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Pages: 184
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

When nine Vietnamese women arrived at Virginia Lynn Sudbury’s small law office in Pago Pago, on the island of Tutuila in the territory of American Samoa, she wasn’t certain she would take the case. The women, workers at the Daewoosa garment factory, were trying to get the company to pay them their promised wages. She decided to take the case, however—not knowing that it would take years to resolve. Sweatshops in Paradise tells the first-person account of the notorious garment factory/sweatshop class-action lawsuit Nga v. Daewoosa, which took place in the territory of American Samoa from 1999 until 2001. This precedent-setting case drew international attention to the issues surrounding involuntary servitude and trafficking in human beings in far-flung US territories. Written by Sudbury, who acted as the lead plaintiff attorney, Sweatshops in Paradise narrates the story of some three hundred Vietnamese and Chinese workers who were brought to American Samoa to work in the Daewoosa garment factory. There, they encountered civil injustices, rampant abuse, and imprisonment at the hands of the Korean factory owner and the local government. Chronicled in a frank, disarming, and at times humorous manner, Sweatshops in Paradise draws upon hearing transcripts, newspaper articles, and narratives from the largest lawsuit of American Samoa’s history. It provides a poignant accounting of the fears of the workers and the abuses they endured, the impunity of the factory owner, and the incomprehensible neglect of the evolving and tragic situation by the American Samoa government.
