The Cambridge History of China, Vol. 12: Republican China, 1912-1949, Part 1 Book Summary:
This is the first of two volumes of this authoritative Cambridge history which review the Republican period, between the demise of imperial China and the establishment of the People's Republic. These years from 1912 to 1949 were marked by civil war, revolution and invasion; but also by change and growth in the economic, social, intellectual and cultural spheres. The chapters examine economic trends in the period and the rise of the new middle class. Intellectual trends are surveyed to show the changes in traditional Chinese values and the foreign influences which played a major role in Republican China. Although it is written by specialists, the goals and approach of this Cambridge history are to explain and discuss republican China for an audience which will include scholars, students and general readers who do not have special knowledge of Chinese history. It will be useful both as narrative history and as a reference source on the history and politics of China.

La Marquise de Pompadour (Version complète tome 1 et 2): 1912 (French Edition) by Michel Zévaco Book Summary:
Lumineuse et claire, cet après-midi d’octobre 1744 semblait une fête du ciel, avec ses vols d’oiseaux au long des haies, ses légers nuages blancs voguant dans l’immensité bleuâtre, son joli poudroiement de rayons d’or dans l’air pur où se balançaient des parfums et des frissons d’automne.Sur le chemin de mousses et de feuilles qui allait de l’Ermitage à Versailles, – des humbles chaumières au majestueux colosse de pierre, – un cavalier s’en venait au petit pas, rênes flottantes au caprice de son alezan nerveux et souple...
Healer: The Controversial and Supernatural Life of John G. Lake Book 1 1912-1923 Book Summary:
The newest book on John G. Lake features material not seen in nearly 100 years. New articles and insights into the life of a man of faith were compiled and edited by Brett Wyatt, who spent hundreds of hours personally researching Lake in archives, under old buildings and in the living rooms of people who actually knew him. This expanded and revised version of Wyatt's previous book on Lake, includes both the positive and the negative, so that the reader can make an informed decision about the man and his ministry. Lake's work was covered extensively in the newspapers of his time and he was aggressive with his own public relations machine. Both are sourced in this book and its companion book to provide what is the most honest, unbiased picture of Lake ever presented in book form.

The Letters of Jack London: Vol. 1: 1896-1905; Vol. 2: 1906-1912; Vol. 3: 1913-1916, Standard set (Studies in International Policy) by Jack London Book Summary:
Jack London has long been recognized as one of the most colorful figures in American literature. From his birth in San Francisco in 1876 until his death in 1916, he lived a life rich with experiences and emotional intensity. Factory worker at 14; able-bodied seaman at 17; hobo and convict at 18; "Boy Socialist" of Oakland at 19; Klondike argonaut at 21; the "American Kipling" at 24, renowned author, social crusader, journalist, and war correspondent at 28; world traveler and adventurer at 31; prize-winning stock-breeder and scientific farmer at 35; self-made millionaire by the time of his death at 40: the facts became a legend in London's own lifetime.In less than 20 years, London produced some 500 non-fiction pieces, 200 short stories, and 19 novels (over 50 books in all). Of these books, at least three (The Call of the Wild, White Fang, and The Sea Wolf) have become world classics. London is America's most widely translated authors (into more than 80 languages), and although his works have been neglected until recently by academic critics, he is finally winning recognition as a major figure in American literary history.Comprising 1,554 carefully annotated letters, this three-volume work is the first full-scale, comprehensive collection of London't correspoThe image that emerges from London's letters is of an unpretentious, often sensitive human being, extraordinarily open and sometimes brutally candid. He was capable of writing deeply moving, poetic love letters, but he was also capable, when writing to or about those he considered enemies, of a dark bitterness and vicious invective. Like most of his published work, many of his letters ware simply good reading, written with his characteristic verve and blunt wit.This edition is lavishly illustrated, including 112 photographs, most of them from the London Family albums and many published for the first time.
