Monsieur René Magritte by Adrian Maben( Visual )

60 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The house where artist René Magritte lived and worked was left untouched by his widow after his death in 1967 and it tells much about the man who found inspiration in everyday surroundings. Childhood experiences and the suicide of Magritte's mother are recalled by the artist himself in archive footage and he explains how this tragic event later inspired themes in his paintings. The film focuses on the recurring influences of certain objects and places in Magritte's art, his experimentation with futurism and his attraction to the work of Chirico before discovering his own unique surrealist style."--Container

Featuring rarely-seen footage from a trove of film and video materials kept secret for decades by Chinese authorities, the series also presents interviews--granted exclusively to the film makers--with the last surviving members of Mao's inner circle. For students of Mao's era, this series may well represent the most powerful learning tool available. Part one of the series covers the early years of Mao Zedong, his struggle against nationalist and foreign force, and his consolidation of power. Part two explores the formative decades of Mao's government, the Great leap Forward, and events leading up to the Cultural Revolution. Part three examines the Cultural Revolution, its political and economic shockwaves, and its human cost. Part four recounts the Nixon-Mao diplomacy and Mao's death, and assesses the importance of Mao's rule and philosophy in 21st-century China

Mao une histoire chinoise by Adrian Maben( Visual )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in French and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qui fut cet homme dont Richard Nixon dira qu'il a "transformé la Chine et changé le monde"? A la fois stratège militaire, homme politique, visionnaire, philosophe, mais aussi poète, il fut un manipulateur de génie, alliant sensualité, politique et révolution. Durant trente ans, Mao a régné sur la Chine, considéré comme un dieu dans son propre pays et vénéré comme idole révolutionnaire par des millions de personnes en Occident et dans les pays en voie de développement. Pourquoi et comment un fils de paysan issu d'une province isolée de la Chine profonde est-il parvenu à s'ériger en souverain incontesté de la nation la plus peuplée de la terre, possédant une aura et un pouvoir dignes des plus grands empereurs fondateurs de la Chine ? Qu'est-ce qui a engendré le pèlerinage idéologique de Mao à travers le nationalisme et l'anarchisme pour aboutir au communisme, avec comme point culminant une convulsion terrifiante, iconoclaste, et finalement vouée à l'échec : La Révolution culturelle, dont l'objectif fut de calquer les esprits d'une nation entière sur la pensée unique de Mao

Mao eine chinesische Geschichte = Mao - une histoire chinoise( Visual )

10 editions published in 2006 in German and French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mao Tse-tung (andere Schreibweise: Mao Zedong) gehört zu den herausragenden Figuren der Weltgeschichte. Er war Militärstratege, Politiker, Philosoph und Poet zugleich; ein genialer Manipulator, der Sinnlichkeit, Politik und Revolution zu verbinden verstand. Er hat, wie Richard Nixon es formulierte, "eine Nation bewegt und die Welt verändert". Mao regierte China dreissig Jahre lang. Er wurde im eigenen Land verehrt wie ein Gott und in der westlichen Welt und den Entwicklungsländern von Millionen Menschen als revolutionäres Idol verehrt. Wie kam es, dass ein Bauernsohn aus einer isolierten Provinz im chinesischen Hinterland (eines der abgelegensten Gebiete des Landes) es schaffte, zum unbestirttenen Herrscher der bevölkerungsreichsten Nation der Welt zu werden, mit einer Aura und Macht, wie sie den grössten Kaisern Chinas würdig gewesen wäre? (Quelle: Umschlag)
