The story of three generations in twentieth-century China that blends the intimacy of memoir and the panoramic sweep of eyewitness history?a bestselling classic in thirty languages with more than ten million copies sold around the world, now with a new introduction from the author An engrossing record of Mao's impact on China, an unusual window on the female experience in the modern world, and an inspiring tale of courage and love, Jung Chang describes the extraordinary lives and experiences of her family members: her grandmother, a warlord's concubine; her mother's struggles as a young idealistic Communist; and her parents' experience as members of the Communist elite and their ordeal during the Cultural Revolution. Chang was a Red Guard briefly at the age of fourteen, then worked as a peasant, a "barefoot doctor," a steelworker, and an electrician. As the story of each generation unfolds, Chang captures in gripping, moving?and ultimately uplifting?detail the cycles of violent drama visited on her own family and millions of others caught in the whirlwind of history

A star-rating system identifies the finest producers and highlights those offering the best value, while an "author's choice" chart at the end of each section lists the very best wines." "The most comprehensive illustrated wine guide ever produced, The Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia is an unrivaled source of information for all lovers of wine-whether you are a novice wanting to explore the pleasures of wine, a wine enthusiast looking for inspiration, or an expert sommelier.

A history of reading by Alberto Manguel( Book )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in Swedish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book'that string of confused, alien ciphers'shivered into meaning, and at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader. Noted essayist and editor Alberto Manguel moves from this essential moment to explore the six-thousand-year-old conversation between words and that hero without whom the book would be a lifeless object: the reader. Manguel brilliantly covers reading as seduction, as rebellion, and as obsession and goes on to trace the quirky and fascinating history of the reader's progress from clay tablet to scroll, codex to CD-ROM

The revolt of the elites : and the betrayal of democracy by Christopher Lasch( Book )
2 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in Swedish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this challenging work, Christopher Lasch makes his most accessible critique yet of what is wrong with the values and beliefs of America's professional and managerial elites. The distinguished historian argues that democracy today is threatened not by the masses, as Jose Ortega y Gasset (The Revolt of the Masses) had said, but by the elites. These elites - mobile and increasingly global in outlook - refuse to accept limits or ties to nation and place. Lasch contends that, as they isolate themselves in their networks and enclaves, they abandon the middle class, divide the nation, and betray the idea of a democracy for all America's citizens. The book is historical writing at its best, using the past to reveal the roots of our current dilemma. The author traces how meritocracy - selective elevation into the elite - gradually replaced the original American democratic ideal of competence and respect for every man. Among other cultural trends, he trenchantly criticizes the vogue for self-esteem over achievement as a false remedy for deeper social problems, and attacks the superior pseudoradicalism of the academic left. Brilliantly he reveals why it is no wonder that Americans are apathetic about their common culture and see no point in arguing politics or voting. In a powerful final section Lasch traces the spiritual crisis of democracy. The elites, having jettisoned the moral and ethical guidelines provided by religion, cling to the belief that through science they can master their fates and escape mortal limits. In pursuit of this illusion they have become infatuated with the global economy. Their revolt, the author warns, is diminishing what is worthwhile about American life. This volume, completed just before the author's death, continues in his tradition of vigorous and original thought and should stir soul-searching among readers concerned about the future of America and its democracy

Christina, Queen of Sweden : the restless life of a European eccentric by Veronica Buckley( Book )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in Swedish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"She was born on a bitterly cold December night in 1626 and mistakenly declared a boy. On her father's death six years later she inherited the Swedish throne. She was educated as a prince, yet could eat and swear like the roughest soldier. She was painted a lesbian, a prostitute, a hermaphrodite and an atheist. She was learned but restless, progressive yet self-deceiving. Her leadership was erratic, her character unpredictable. No sooner had she enjoyed the lavish celebrations of her official coronation at 23, than she abdicated, converted to Catholicism and left her cold homeland behind for an extravagant new life in Rome."
