Tales of soldiers and civilians by Ambrose Bierce ( Book )
1 edition published in 1943 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This revised edition of Ambrose Bierce's 1892 collections of Soldiers and Civilians tales fills a void in American literature. A veteran of the Civil War and a journalist known for his integrity and biting satire, Ambrose Bierce was also a lively short-story writer of considerable depth and power. As San Francisco's most famous journalist during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, Bierce was hired by William Randolph Hearst to write a column for the San Francisco Examiner, where his Soldiers and Civilians tales first appeared during the late 1880s. During the post-Civil War years, Bierce recognized the growing nationalism in America and the increasing glorification of war heroes and soldiers. In response, he wrote his Soldiers tales. Although he was a Civil War veteran, Bierce had been a civilian for more than twenty years when he began to write the bulk of the nineteen tales that comprised his 1892 collection. Thus, the Civilians tales were written as a counterpoint to the preceding war stories. Bierce's intent was to explore the complex interconnections between soldiers and civilians. He recognized in Tales of Soldiers and Civilians that war and peace together comprise an interacting harmony. By the standards of his day and ours, Bierce's journalism was often brilliantly insightfully, viciously libelous, petty, and grand, frequently in the space of a single paragraph. This edition reveals the often compelling artistry of Bierce's original versions of the tales and the intentionally intricate design and scope of the original collection

All men are brothers = Shui hu chan by Nai-An Shih ( Book )
1 edition published in 1948 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This translation of a Chinese classic (14th Century) is the epic tale of a band of patriots in China during the latter part of Sung Dynasty and is considered by most to be one to the three or four greatest novels in Chinese literature. Shui hun chuan (water margin chronicles) is the adventure of a band of 108 outlaws (105 men and 3 women) struggling to help the Emperor rid himself of the despotic prime minister. Like Robin Hood, the bandit kings refer to themselves as the gallant fraternity. They come out to harass the authorities and to attempt to solicit followers to overthrow a corrupt government in the name of the Emperor. Chock-full of ghosts, innkeepers who make hamburgers of their guests, giants of superhuman strength, beautiful women in distress, wily intellectuals and crafty merchants, this is a timeless tale of love and adventure."--Publisher
