Chaucer, 1340-1400 : the life and times of the first English poet by Richard West( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard West weaves a fascinating picture of an age in his quest to reveal the nature of this extraordinary man, whose own character has always puzzled lovers of his comic masterpiece, The Canterbury Tales. As a child he survived the Black Death, later he fought in France during the Hundred Years War, served as a diplomat in Italy during the turmoil leading up to the papal schism, and became a Member of Parliament at the angry beginnings of the Protestant Reformation, the bloody Peasants' Revolt and the overthrow and murder of Richard II. The book begins and ends in Canterbury, the scene of Becket's martyrdom and a focal point of English history for more than two thousand years."--Jacket

Tito : and the rise and fall of Yugoslavia by Richard West( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly forty years, up until his death in 1980, Tito, the Yugoslav leader, was world-famous - first as a Partisan against the Germans, then as the first Communist head to break with the Soviet Union, then as a pioneer of the 'non-aligned' world between East and West. Yet, twelve years after Tito's death, Yugoslavia ceased to exist and its people were caught up in a violent civil war. Was Tito to blame? Richard West's revealing biography answers this and other questions
Daniel Defoe : the life and strange, surprising adventures by Richard West( Book )

5 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The many baffling, colorful facets of Daniel Defoe's person and career come into striking focus in this new biography by Richard West. Here is Defoe the tradesman, soldier, and spy, the journalist, novelist, satirist, newsman, and pamphleteer. Consistent only in his failure as a businessman, Defoe would never manage to provide adequately for his wife and their six children, neither in commerce nor by his undeniably prolific pen - a pen that in the year following Defoe's imprisonment, by West's estimate, wrote a half million words. That same year Defoe also founded a newspaper, The Review, for which he created such features as the lead story, the obituary, foreign news analysis, the gossip column, and the advice column. With a finesse and independence of spirit not unlike his subject's own, West unfolds his story of a maverick Defoe, a Puritan but no prude, a Dissenter without a constituency, a hack who never failed to pursue the truth and by the way also produced Moll Flanders, Roxana, A Journal of the Plague Year, and Robinson Crusoe. - Publisher
