Dear readers,Reading empowers people with knowledge, and in CSMS Magazine, not only we bring the latest info about what is going on around the world, but also we give you in-depth analyses on issues pertinent to our concerned readers. What we do is who we are; and what we do is promoting education, literature and cross-cultural awareness. In this magazine, we put a lot of emphases in bridging the gap between ethnic and cultural lines so one day our differences could truly be an asset, a treasure to cherish, not a cause for major disagreements. We are not interested in projecting an elitist image; nor do we want to take our readers into clotted, theoretical labyrinths. As the summer season draws near, CSMS Book Club has put together a list of books that we believe would be of interests to our devoted readers.
