Description:
-University of Nebraska Press, 1998-. Stages 12. vii+192 pages with index. Decorated cloth. Very good. No dustjacket, not sure one was issued. "Naming and Unnaming" is a dazzling study that centers on the work of Raymond Queneau, one of the most influential French novelists of the twentieth century. Jordan Stump takes as his subject the many implications - epistemological, political, literary, sometimes even physical - of naming in Queneau's remarkable novels. From the idea that the names of characters offer a more immediate and perhaps even a more intimate understanding of their souls than we might glean from their words and deeds has grown the broad field of inquiry known as literary onomastics.

Description:
-C Hurst & Co (2003)-. First edition first impression 2003. xii+356 pages. Cloth. Near fine in dustjacket. This biography focuses on Ho's early political career, from his emergence at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, to his organisation of the Viet Minh United Front at the start of the Second World War. Using previously untapped sources from Comintern and French intelligence archives, Sophie Quinn-Judge examines Ho's life in the light of two interconnecting themes - the origins and institutional development of the Indochinese Communist Party (ICP) and the impact on early Vietnamese communism of political developments in China and the Soviet Union. She makes the case that Ho's significance within the Comintern has been overstated by both leftist and anti-communist scholarship; she shows that there were other forces and personalities who played important roles in the formation of the ICP, especially when Ho's political fortunes were on the wane. Of special interest is her… Read More
