Most widely held works by Keith Laidler
The last empress : the She-Dragon of China by Keith Laidler( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in English and Spanish and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1856 Emperor Hsien Feng turned over an ornately carved jade name-plaque next to his bedchamber, an action with which he brought a much-desired new concubine to his bed and unwittingly sealed the fate of the Manchu dynasty. A centuries-old prophecy had foretold that Manchu rule in China would be brought to ruin by a woman from the Yeho-Nala tribe; in the darkness of the bedchamber those words became reality. The Emperor was entranced with the young woman he had chosen, and from that time her power over him was ensured. Her name was Yehonala." "Forced to enter the Forbidden City at the age of sixteen Yehonala lost her family, her betrothed and the life she had sought. She was entering a world of opulence, scholarship, intrigue and power struggles; a world that had remained for centuries untouched by the outside world or the passing of time, ruled by etiquette and tradition but with danger in every word or gesture. The beautiful young girl proved herself equal to all the court. She rose to be one of the greatest female autocrats in history, the most powerful person in China, maintaining her power with a mixture of seduction, intrigue, manipulation and even murder."--Jacket

China's threatened wildlife by Liz Laidler( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The rich variety of China's wildlife and natural environments is truly astonishing. Such is its importance as a key area of biodiversity that many plant and animal species are found nowhere else in the world - for example, the giant panda, Pere David's deer, the Yangtze dolphin and the Chinese alligator." "Liz and Keith Laidler have spent more than ten years travelling in China, exploring and filming their television documentaries of the country's beautiful wild places and the many creatures those habitats support. While their wonder at the diversity and richness of the animals and environment has remained undiminished, it is tempered by the sobering observation that, as elsewhere, this marvellous natural world is under threat." "In this significant book they record, region by region, the status of a wide range of species and habitats and the work that is being done to research their ecology and to preserve and protect them, especially since their own initiated programme - the first-ever international conference on China's wildlife, in 1987. In so doing, the book provides an important record of the conservation movement in China."--BOOK JACKET

Surveillance unlimited : how we've become the most watched people on Earth by Keith Laidler( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live in a surveillance society, but in ways that Orwell could never have imagined." "Your car is satellite-tracked, your features auto-identified on video, your emails, faxes and phone calls monitored. You are covertly followed via transmitters implanted in your clothes, via your switched-off mobile and via your credit card transactions. Your character, needs and interests are profiled by surveillance of every website you visit, every newsgroup you scan, every purchase you make. Big Brother is here, quietly adding to your files in the name of government efficiency and the fight against organised crime and terrorism." "As Keith Laidler argues in this urgent, important book, the potential for abuse is far-reaching and formidable. Surveillance can indeed fight crime. But, he asks, at what price? If we want zero crime, can we accept its price of zero freedom? Is the deployment of such technologies even legal? What will be their effects on the fabric of society? And what can we do to prevent their worst excesses?"--Jacket
