"Madame Germaine de Stael is often regarded as the "mistress of an age," or (like England and Russia) one of the three great European "powers" of the nineteenth century. She was in some sense both, but she was also an important and influential writer whose works, astonishingly, have not, until this volume, been translated into English since the early nineteenth century. She absorbed the leading ideas of the Enlightenment on literature, politics, science, and the social order; turned many of them to her own uses and then bequeathed them to the nineteenth century, which adopted much of the Enlightenment through her works." "She had two related aims: by her writings on politics, to guide Europe as it entered the republican era and to help it maintain its cultural legacy and liberty; and to explain all literature by its relation to social institutions (which has had a profound effect on all subsequent studies of comparative literature). Here, in clear and flowing English prose that conveys both the personality and the style of the original - and that corrects the errors of earlier translations - are selections from Madame Germaine de Stael's major works, including Considerations on the Principal Events of the French Revolution, Literature Considered in Its Relation to Social Institutions, Essay on Fiction, On Germany, and her reflections on Russian and English as well as German national character. They make plain both her amazingly modern approach to such subjects as politics, literature, science, education, and women, and the tremendous repercussions her work has had."--BOOK JACKET

The Egyptian peasant by Henry Habib Ayrout( Book )

5 editions published between 1963 and 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egypt has changed enormously in the last half century, and nowhere more so than in the villages of the Nile Valley. But the conservative and traditional world of unremitting labor that characterizes the lives of the Egyptian peasants, or fellaheen, also survives, and nowhere has it been better described than in this classic account by Father Henry Habib Ayrout, an Egyptian Jesuit sociologist who dedicated most of his life to creating a network of free schools for rural children at a time when there were very few. First published in French in 1938, the book went through several revisions by the author before being translated and published in English in 1963"--Jacket
