Description:
New York: Vintage, March 1982. Trade Paperback. First Vintage Books Edition. Tanned with dust stains to top edge, otherwise As New. Not from a library. No remainder mark. xxii+309 pages. The "old revolutionaries" were Samuel Adams, Isaac Sears, Thomas Young, Richard Henry Lee, and Charles Carroll. Of widely varying backgrounds and interests, all of them had their greatest influence in the years between 1769 and 1776, and all of them saw their power transferred after the war to the men we know as "the Founding Fathers." In telling the stories of these men, Maier shows how the American Revolution was less a collective movement than a commitment to an ideal of a republic, which different people interpreted differently. She describes not just why Americans made the Revolution, but what the Revolution did to them.

Boston: Houghton Mifflin, May 2000. Hardcover. First Thus / full number line. As New book in an As New jacket. Not a remainder. Not damaged. xiv + 110 pages. Three hundred years ago, the art of French diplomacy saved nations and enthroned kings. In today's business world, those same princely principles can make or break corporations and launch careers. Written in 1716 by the "envoy extraordinary of Louis XIV," this sage and charming study of the art of negotiation is reputed to be the best manual of diplomatic methods ever written. It is similarly a model for business and life. The reason is simple: whether it's palace politics in eighteenth-century France or office politics in a twenty-first-century global market, you need to know how to deal with people effectively. As entertaining as it is educational, this trusted handbook contains a wealth of useful advice, with sections including "The Personal Qualities of a Good Negotiator," "The Fitting Mode of Address," "The Cool Head," "The Perils of… Read more

Calcutta in 1836: an uneasy mix of two worlds-the patient, implacably unchangeable India and the tableau vivant of English life created of imperialism's desperation. This is where Lady Eleanor, her sister Harriet, and her brother, Henry-the newly appointed Governor-General of the colony-arrive after a harrowing sea journey. Historically precise, gorgeously evocative, banked with the heat of unbidden desires.

Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. xii + 147 pages. At the heart of Origami Bridges is the delicate relationship of trust between analyst and patient, a relationship that grows out of the emotional give-and-take of the psychoanalytic process. In this collection, Diane Ackerman, with astonishing candor, lays bare her desires, anger, jealousy, fears, and anxiety, as she probes not only her present emotional landscape but also her past. And what gradually rises to the surface is an understanding of how the poet uses verse to purge her demons, express her delight, or confess secret longing, and through this process come to a better understanding of the self.

London: Hakluyt Society. 2004. Works issued by the Hakluyt Society, Third Series, Volume 14. Hardcover. First Edition. Blue cloth over boards with gilt titles to spine and vignette of sailing ship Victoria on front board. As New book in a Near Fine jacket. Jacket spine slightly faded. Not from a library. No remainder mark. xvii + 331 pages, 49 plates. Focusing upon three previously unpublished accounts of youthful English travellers in Western Europe, this study reassesses the early origins of the cultural phenomenon known as the "Grand Tour." Usually denoted primarily as a post-Restoration and eighteenth-century activity, the basis of the long term English fascination with the "Grand Tour" was firmly rooted in the mid-Tudor and early-Stuart periods. Such travels were usually prompted by one of three reasons: the practical needs of diplomacy, the aesthetic allure of cultural tourism, and the expediencies of political or religious exile. The outbreak of the English Civil War during the late-1640s… Read more

Description:
Stanford, California: Stanford University Press, June 1971. Trade Paperback. 1984 printing. Originally published in French in 1967 under the title Les Origines de la Revolution Chinoise, 1915-1949. Near Fine. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight, and uncreased. Suning and edgewear to cover. Not from a library. No remainder mark. 223 pages. The best introduction to Chinese Communism ever published. It focuses on the dynamic social forces underlying the Chinese Communists' rise in three short decades from obscurity to power. The author relates the events of this period to certain tentative generalizations about the nature and course of the revolution. He is concerned less with the May Fourth Movement as such, for example, than with the revolution's intellectual origins, less with the Communist party's early political history than with the place of Marxist ideology in that history, less with the military aspects of the war of 1937-45 than with the influence of nationalism in the growing success of… Read more
