The White Hotel is an extraordinary, daring colossus of a work in which is seen a startling poetry of violence and redemption. Fuge and threnody, it interlaces history, lush sexuality, psychological truth, fantasy and the craving for brutality, in the case-history of Lisa Erdman, a patient of Freud's. And travelling through the intricate patterns of her being, the reader is sent on an odyssey that seeks refuge beyond the nightmare of the 20th century.

Description:
The Chinese Educational Mission was one of the earliest efforts at educational modernization in China. As part of the Self-Strengthening Movement, the Qing government sent 120 students to New England to live and study for a decade, before they were abruptly summoned home to China in 1881.

To date, there are at most two credible studies in English and Chinese on the Chinese Educational Mission; both are deficient in source citation and tend to dwell on the students' experiences after their return to China rather than during their stay in America.
This volume will also appeal to specialists in Asian-American studies, for its comparing and contrasting the experiences of the Chinese… Read more

Description:
Condition: clean copy.Content: When R.M.Lockley settled on Skokholm, an uninhabited island of the Pembrokeshire coast, he was 24 years old. It was a boyhood dream to be 'with birds and flowers in some remote place, ' to live like Robinson Crusoe. He rebuild a ruined cottage with timber salvaged from a wrecked schooner. He farmed and fished to make a living. He studies the wildlife of the island. And with his wife, Do, he had a daughter. For 12 years Skokholm was their family home. When war broke out in September 1939, this dream island life had to be abandoned. Knowing he may never return, Lockley began writing about the history and wildlife of his island. He sent what he wrote to his friend and brother-in-law John Buxton - a naturalist captured by the Germans in Norway in 1940. These letters to a prisoner-of-war, intended to solace Buxton it his captivity became this book.244 pages, illustrated with drawings.
