Psychoanalysis of the sexual functions of women by Helene Deutsch( )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the author's second work into female psychology and sexuality. The first volume of her influential work, The Psychology of Women, appeared in 1944, to be followed by the second volume a year later. When the author came to consider the relationship of The Psychology of Women to Psychoanalysis of the Sexual Functions of Women, first published almost twenty years before, she observed: "It is evident that the first publication already contains all the building stones for the latter. What was first conceived by intuition and observation of a small number of analyzed women was later supported and confirmed by thirty years of experience."

Orpheus in Paris : Offenbach and the Paris of his time by Siegfried Kracauer( Book )

15 editions published between 1937 and 2016 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème couverture indique : "La biographie d'Offenbach est avant tout celle d'une époque : telle est la conviction qui sous-tend le propos de Siegfried Kracauer dans un ouvrage devenu classique depuis sa première parution en 1937. Protagoniste de ces pages adminrables, autant que le musicien et son cercle, autant que l'opérette elle-même, forme clef d'une nouvelle sensibilité et phénomène culturel unique : la société du Second Empire dans son ensemble, avec sa noblesse divisée, son aristocratie financière, sa population d'artistes, de bohémines, de journalistes et de lorettes, l'émergence des masses, l'importance prise par les salons, théâtres, cafés et passages, la célébration mercantile des expositions culturelles. Sur ce fond, vient se détacher la personnalité d'Offenbach, personnage humoral et contradictoire, dont Kracauer analyse, en même temps que les espoirs et les triomphes, la conscience malheureuse d'intellectuel d'exil : reflet de bien d'autres anxiétés que l'histoire ne devait que trop vérifier. Précédant les textes et les projets de Walter Benjamin, Jacques Offenbach ou le secret du Second Empire fut l'un des premiers ouvrages à explorer la typologie du flâneur et de l'homme des boulevards, amorçant une réfléxion dont nous n'avons pas fini d'épuiser les richesses."

Secret Tibet by Fosco Maraini( Book )

12 editions published between 1952 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fosco Maraini visited Tibet in 1937 and again in 1948. In 1951 he published Secret Tibet, an account that was a synthesis of the two journeys. This book is not a guidebook: the author's studies and journeys concentrated on the valleys and passes that bring travellers from India via Sikkim on their way to the forbidden city of Lhasa. Maraini spent much time in villages and monasteries along the way, at Gangtok, Phari, Iwang and Gyantse in particular. Lhasa he never reached. So how can he call his book "Secret Tibet"? Because he arrived commanding a serviceable knowledge of the language and with no need for interpreters was able to make a warm and fulfilling human contact with men and women representing the very soul of the nation - lamas, scholars, merchants, herdsmen, peasants, children, villains and even princesses. Above all he penetrates the secrets that make Tibetan Buddhism not only the sheet anchor for the nation's sense of identity but indeed a religion and philosophy as intriguing as it is paradoxical. The photographs taken by the author now stand in many instances as a unique record of religious artefacts irrecoverably destroyed

Fontamara by IGNAZIO SILONE( Book )

14 editions published between 1935 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The setting of this novel is poverty-stricken southern Italy under Mussolini's fascist regime -- but it could easily be any time, anywhere that the helpless and dispossessed see their very existence threatened by the powers that rule and own the earth. Ignazio Silone's searingly compassionate vision of the human condition gives a fable-like quality to this story of peasants searching for a way to stop the legal theft of their vital source of water -- a story that comes to center around Berardo, the untutored, hot-tempered young man who becomes their leader and eventually a martyr. There is no idealistic rhetoric in this deeply moving novel; instead there is a blend of pungent reality and earthy humor, of cutting irony and the unsentimental facing of facts, that makes "Fontamara" one of the major works of fiction to emerge form the social, political, and economic crucible of the 1930s
