Most widely held works by Jon Halliday
Mao : the unknown story by Jung Chang( Book )

70 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 3,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a decade of research and on interviews with many of Mao's close circle in China who have never talked before--and with virtually everyone outside China who had significant dealings with him--this is the most authoritative life of Mao ever written. It is full of startling revelations, exploding the myth of the Long March, and showing a completely unknown Mao: he was not driven by idealism or ideology; his intricate relationship with Stalin went back to the 1920s, ultimately bringing him to power; he welcomed the Japanese occupation; and he schemed, poisoned and blackmailed to get his way. After he conquered China in 1949, his secret goal was to dominate the world. He caused the deaths of 38 million people in the greatest famine in history. In all, well over 70 million Chinese perished under Mao's rule--in peacetime. This entirely fresh look at Mao will astonish historians and the general reader alike.--From publisher description

Pasolini su Pasolini : conversazioni con Jon Halliday by Pier Paolo Pasolini( Book )

7 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in Italian and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il cinema, il rapporto col cinema e col suo mondo è l'argomento principale di queste conversazioni tra il critico inglese Jon Halliday e Pier Paolo Pasolini. Halliday ritraccia con Pasolini l'intero suo percorso di regista, illustrandone la concezione del "cinema d'autore", affrontando gli aspetti tecnici, analizzando le opere, chiarendo la posizione di Pasolini di fronte alla censura. Ma la ricchezza della personalità dell'intervistato, la curiosità dell'intervistatore, la varietà d'interessi di entrambi fanno sì che la conversazione spesso si dilati, si appropri di altri temi. Si aprono rapidi, vivissimi scorci su certi momenti della vita di Pasolini: gli anni giovanili, il Friuli, Bologna, la scoperta di Roma, il formarsi delle amicizie. Ma, soprattutto, si toccano gli argomenti che hanno destato, fuori e dentro l'opera letteraria, l'interesse e la passione di Pasolini: le questioni di lingua, la religione, il rapporto fra letteratura e ideologia, fra cultura e politica e fra Chiesa e cultura in Italia. Riscoprendo così un ardore intellettuale e civile capace di mettere a fuoco problemi sempre attuali nel nostro Paese
