Cele 70 minuni ale Chinei .

Editura: Rao

Anul aparitiei: 2008

China este pe cale să devină o mare putere economică a lumii. Ce se află însă în spatele dezvoltării sale fulminante din secolul XXI? Care sunt rădăcinile şi specificul acestei mari civilizaţii? Răspunsurile le găsiţi în acest volum de prestigiu, care prezintă în eseuri edificatoare şi cuprinzătoare aspecte diverse ale Chinei, de la minunile naturii - munţi, fluvii, Drumul Mătăsii, viaţa sălbatică - la arte, marile monumente ale trecutului şi oraşele animate de astăzi. Realizările artistice ale Chinei nu au egal: caligrafia, jadul, mătasea, ceramica, lacul, pictura, bronzul, mobilierul, grădinile - toate sunt descrise aici de experţi. Se acordă atenţia cuvenită monumentelor celebre ca Oraşul Interzis din Beijing sau Marele Zid, dar nu sunt trecute cu vederea sculpturi, palate, morminte sau temple mai puţin cunoscute, dar de o frumuseţe uluitoare. Admirăm splendorile vechilor oraşe imperiale Xi'an şi Nanjing, dar şi replica dată în contemporaneitate de zgârie-norii din Beijing şi Shanghai, metropole moderne, în plină dezvoltare.

Modern China: The Fall and Rise of a Great Power, 1850 to the Present

Editura: ECCO

Anul aparitiei: 2008

No country on earth has suffered a more bitter history in modern times than China. In the second half of the nineteenth century, it was viewed as doomed to extinction. Its imperial rulers, heading an anachronistic regime, were brought low by enormous revolts, shifting social power patterns, republican revolutionaries, Western incursions to "split the Chinese melon" and a disastrous defeat by Japan. The presence of predatory foreigners has often been blamed for China's troubles, but the much greater cause came from within China itself. In the early twentieth century, the empire was succeeded by warlordism on a massive scale, internal divisions, incompetent rule, savage fighting between the government and the Communists, and a fourteen-year invasion from Japan. Four years of civil war after 1945 led to the Maoist era, with its purges and repression; the disastrous Great Leap Forward; a famine that killed tens of millions; and the Cultural Revolution.Yet from this long trauma, China has emerged amazingly in the last three decades as an economic powerhouse set to play a major global political role, its future posing one of the great questions for the twenty-first century as it grapples ...

Will China Dominate the 21st Century?

Editura: BLACKWELL PUBL

Anul aparitiei: 2014

China's spectacular growth and expanding global role have led to visions of the 21st century being dominated by the last major state on earth ruled by a Communist Party. In this new edition of his widely acclaimed book, renowned China expert Jonathan Fenby shows why such assumptions are wrong. He presents an analysis of China under Xi Jinping which shows the highly significant challenges it faces which stand in the way of global domination. For all its spectacular growth, it has to deal with major political, economic, social and international tests, each involving structural difficulties that will put the system under strain. Based on the author's extensive knowledge of contemporary China and his close analysis of Xi's leadership, this incisive analysis offers a pragmatic view of where the country is heading at a time when its future is too important an issue for wishful theorizing.

Tiger Head, Snake Tails: China Today, How It Got There and Where It Is Heading

Editura: MCGRAW HILL BOOK CO

Anul aparitiei: 2012

In this compelling and lucid account based on years of research and first-hand experience, rooted in on-the-ground reporting, interviews, observations, analysis of data and a viewpoint that sees the country from the inside out, Jonathan Fenby links the myriad features of today's rapidly evolving China. "Fast-moving, informed, and illuminating" (The Guardian), Tiger Head, Snake Tails brilliantly demonstrates that the binary approach so often applied to China -- the country is either good or bad, set to reach the stars or collapse in chaos -- often boils down to the prejudices of its authors. By seeing China as a whole -- especially its history and involvement with the West -- and connecting the dots, Jonathan Fenby intelligently looks into its future, both internally and in its impact on the rest of the world.

But despite the endless stream of soothsayers, there has been no single book that pulls together the whole of the China story, linking its very disparate elements to present a coherent portrait that explains what China is and why it matters so much. In this compelling and lucid account based on years of research and first-hand experience, rooted in on-the-ground reporting, interviews, observations, and a viewpoint that sees the country from the inside out, leading journalist and China expert Jonathan Fenby links the myriad features of today's rapidly evolving China. By seeing China as a whole--especially its history and involvement with the West--and connecting the dots, Fenby intelligently looks into its future, both internally and in relation to the rest of the world.

The General: Charles de Gaulle and the France He Saved

Editura: MANCHESTER UNIV PR

Anul aparitiei: 2013

No leader of modern times was more uniquely national than Charles de Gaulle. In his twenties, he fought for France in the trenches and at the epic battle of Verdun. In the 1930s, he waged a lonely battle to enable France better to resist Hitler's Germany. Thereafter, he twice rescued the nation from defeat and decline by extraordinary displays of leadership, political acumen, daring, and bluff, heading off civil war and leaving a heritage adopted by his successors of right and left. Le General, as he became known from 1940 on, appeared as if carved from a single monumental block but was, in fact, extremely complex, a man with deep personal feelings and recurrent mood swings, devoted to his family and often seeking reassurance from those around him. This is a "monumental," "thorough," and "enjoyable" biography (Financial Times) of one of the great leaders of the twentieth century and of the country with which he so identified himself. Written with terrific verve and narrative skill, and yet rigorous and detailed, the first major work on de Gaulle in fifteen years "tracks the great man's career with journalistic industry" (Wall Street Journal), bringing alive as never before the ...

The History of Modern France

Editura: GENERAL BOOKS

Anul aparitiei: 2016

With the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte at the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815, the next two centuries for France would be tumultuous. Critically acclaimed historian and political commentator Jonathan Fenby provides an expert and riveting journey through this period as he recounts and analyzes the extraordinary sequence of events of this period from the end of the First Revolution through two others, a return of Empire, three catastrophic wars with Germany, periods of stability and hope interspersed with years of uncertainty and high tensions. As her cross-channel neighbor Great Britain would equally suffer, France was to undergo the wrenching loss of colonies in the post-Second World War era as the new modern world we know today took shape. Her attempts to become the leader of the European union was a constant struggle, as was her lack of support for America in the two Gulf Wars of the past twenty years. Alongside this came huge social changes and cultural landmarks, but also fundamental questioning of what this nation, which considers itself exceptional, really stood--and stands--for. That saga and those questions permeate the France of today, now with an implacable enemy to face ...

In his twenties, he fought for France in the trenches and at the epic battle of Verdun. In the 1930s, he waged a lonely battle to enable France to better resist Hitler s Germany.

France on the Brink: A Great Civilization in the New Century

Editura: KESSINGER PUB LLC

Anul aparitiei: 2014

This completely revised and fully updated edition of the book Bill Bryson called "superb" presents a sharply insightful, authoritative portrait of France today as it struggles to live up to its vision of itself amid storm clouds that won't go away. France on the Brink was chosen as a New York Times book of the year and hailed by the Wall Street Journal as "a comprehensive and entertaining diagnosis of what ails French society" when the first edition was published at the turn of the century. Since then, the crisis enveloping France has only worsened, and this second edition, completely revamped to cover the developments of the past fifteen years, offers a fresh assessment of where the nation stands. New chapters chart political developments under Presidents Chirac, Sarkozy, and Hollande; the rise of the hard right National Front; and the unrelenting economic woes that have led to unprecedented levels of disillusion and fragmentation. The country's social evolution is covered comprehensively, with description and analysis of urban and rural life, regional divisions, tensions over immigration and the fading of the symbols that denoted France's greatness. High unemployment, an archaic ...

The Siege of Tsingtao: Penguin Special

Editura: PENGUIN UK

Anul aparitiei: 2015

The only battle of World War I to be fought in East Asia, how it came about, and why its aftermath is still relevant today In 1914, Europe was not the only continent coming to terms with a new form of conflict. Through a mix of complex alliances and global ambition, the war had spread to northern China, where the German-held port of Tsingtao became a key battleground. To strike a blow at Kaiser Wilhelm's naval forces, Britain and its ally Japan lay siege to the port during October and November. In"The Siege of Tsingtao," the first of the Penguin China Specials on World War I, celebrated historian Jonathan Fenby examines the causes of the battle, the ulterior motives for it, and the path it helped set East Asia on for decades to come."
