Napoléon by Emil Ludwig( Book )

55 editions published between 1915 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 2,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using his unique ability to analyze character so admirably, Ludwig has presented a biography of Napoleon I, that concentrates less on the battles and more on the man: his inner history, intellect, self confidence, energy, imaginative power, clarity of thought, and natural dignity. The time line of this book is from Napoleon's birth in 1769 and to his death in 1821. Along his life's journey he became a uniquely talented man, a great soldier, and a great leader. It covers his heights of power and success: men and country followed him unconditionally, great kingdoms fell before him, and he became emperor. It also includes his extraordinary failings: the damaging French invasion of Russia, abdication, exile, defeat at the Battle of Waterloo, island confinement and his ultimate death

"Otto von Bismarck was more than a politician and a leader: he was the single driving force that turned the disparate states of Germany into one cohesive empire. He then went on to lead Germany and the rest of Europe intyo an age of political peace that lasted from 1871 until the outbreak of World War I. Under his influence, Germany thrived. Bismarck's use of statesmanship to fight for the interests of his country was legendary. As one of the most influential and powerful and powerful individuals in his country's history, [he] became a symbol of leadership and pride for German nationalists. ... Baismarck was not merely a hard and calculating statesman, but a man who ruled by pride, courage, and hatred. To fully comprehend [his] actions, we must first understand his feelings, his motivations and his private life. ..."--Back cover

The royal game & other stories by Stefan Zweig( Book )

11 editions published between 1944 and 1961 in English and German and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The art of the great Austian writer Stefan Zweig was a difficult balancing act. Zweig's major subject was human limitation, above all the ways in which the best of intentions can lead people into the murkiest of emotional and moral cul-de-sacs. And yet Zweig also hoped to illumine those dark places of the heart and mind, to show that it is not, finally, impossible to attain a true perspective on our limitations, even to care for each other. Zweig, much like his contemporary E.M. Forster, was liberal and humanist to the core, gambling on human goodness against the specters of oppression and despair."

This collection contains ten typically breathless and erudite dramatizations of some of the most pivotal episo
Suggestion and autosuggestion : a psychological and pedagogical study based upon the investigations made by the new Nancy school by Charles Baudouin( Book )

29 editions published between 1920 and 2015 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the year 1910 there has been in progress at Nancy a psychological and medico-pedagogical movement which we are entitled to regard as one of the notable scientific happenings of the present epoch. The terms autosuggestion, the education of the will, the force of thought, self-control, have long been current. But with the rise of the New Nancy School we have for the first time the elements of a really methodical synthesis of the phenomena and the disciplines which these terms connote. The pioneer in this development is a man whose devotion is rivaled by his modesty. During the years 1885 and 1886, Emile Cou e witnessed the work and the experiments of Li ebault, who was, as everyone knows, the father of the doctrine of suggestion, the founder of the first Nancy school, and the teacher of Bernheim. By the closing years of the nineteenth century, Cou e had grasped the thought of which he was in search. He discovered in autosuggestion the powerful and widely diffused force of which hypnotic suggestion, the only form of suggestion hiitherto studied in medicine, is but one among many applications"--Preface.
