In Notes from the Jungle, John Price, the Principal of Jerudong International School in Brunei, explores every aspect of international education. He reflects on the aims of international schools in a period of global confrontation. He discusses the challenges of being a headmaster in the Far East and the trials and tribulations of expatriate life. He analyses Chinglish and Minglish, the psychology of globe-trotting teachers, the practice of diplomacy and even revisits Somerset Maugham. He takes the reader on journeys around Brunei, but also to Borobudur, Hanoi, Sabah and the hill stations of Malaysia. This is the first book ever to show what teaching in an international school is really like. Notes from the Jungle is a roller-coaster of adventure, invective and practical educational philosophy. 'I laughed my breeches off.' James Brooke 'A very amusing expose of the practice of headmastering.' Matthew Arnold 'Dum spiro, spero...where there is perspiration, there is hope.' Jesselton Times
