9780969703815: Terrian Journals' NSR: Not Spying, ... Really!: Accidental encounters with secrecy in a world of insecurities

Terrian Journals' NSR: Not Spying, ... Really! is a collection of true stories about surprising events and unexpected consequences in many different parts of the world. NSR stories are puzzling, funny, or disconcerting. They could just as well be excerpts from a diary of espionage. But they definitely are not. Terrian Journals' NSR tells the tale of our age of misunderstanding, when the innocent can find themselves unwittingly right in the middle of the action, observing intrigues, facing accusations, and witnessing paranoia activities and abuses first hand. Terrian Journals' NSR is not about collecting intelligence. It is about how easily a person can find him/herself in a situation where intelligence is not being fully applied.

About the Author:

The author of the Terrian Journals series begins writing Not Spying, ...Really? by being in the right places, or wrong ones, at the right times, or wrong ones. It all starts while living in Rio de Janeiro, Cordoba, and Valparaiso when nasty military dictatorships are on the way out and democracies are returning, seven years before the Berlin Wall collapses. The writing which becomes this book and others continues while the author is living in Fukuoka, Barcelona, Djakarta, Singapore, Tokyo, Québec, Fort de France, Quito, Santiago de Cuba, Miyazaki, etc. Travelling extensively, tens of thousands of kilometres overland, on foot, by thumb, bus, train, trishaw, and rickshaw, he crosses vast stretches of the Americas from Ushuaia to Inuvik, Asiaeur from Vladivostok to Tallin, southern Asia from Chittagong to Delhi, etc. He takes some ferries and planes too. He is invited to stay in ordinary people's homes or sleeps in very modest hotels, and sometimes in a tent. The author arrives in Buenos Aires in the middle of la guerra de las Malvinas, passes the first election days in many years in Rio de Janeiro and Mendoza. He arrives in Dhaka the day a dictatorship falls there. These events and others are just coincidences in timing for the author. Some of the Terrian Journals adventures are alone, others are with his Carioca friend Zita, and yet others are with his Kyushu partner Mariko. Before any of this, he is born in a subarctic city of Canada and earns degrees in political science, adult education, journalism, and community planning at three universities in Ontario and B.C. His work includes community journalism, planning, cooperative housing, civil liberties, and adult education. He and his partner work on their own in a very tiny, virtually non-profit adult education organization, which they carry with them.
