White Eagle, Red Star
Author: Norman Davies
Publisher: Random House
Surprisingly little known, the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-20 was to change the course of twentieth-century history. In White Eagle, Red Star, Norman Davies gives a full account of the War, with its dramatic climax in August 1920 when the Red Army - sure of victory and pledged to carry the Revolution across Europe to 'water our horses on the Rhine' - was crushed by a devastating Polish attack. Since known as the 'miracle on the Vistula', it remains one of the most decisive battles of the Western world. Drawing on both Polish and Russian sources, Norman Davies illustrates the narrative with documentary material which hitherto has not been readily available and shows how the War was far more an 'episode' in East European affairs, but largely determined the course of European history for the next twenty years or more.
Controlling deforestation, which is responsible for about one-fifth of the world's greenhouse gas emissions, has become a major tool in the battle against global warming. An important new international initiative – Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) – provides economic incentives to forest users to encourage preservation of trees. Nearly all Latin American countries are introducing national REDD strategies and pilot schemes. This insightful book raises questions over some of the basic assumptions that underpin REDD policies in Latin America. It raises doubts about whether sufficient account is being taken of the complex social, economic, cultural and governance dimensions involved, advocating a comprehensive 'social development' approach to REDD planning. Forests and Climate Change is the first book to comprehensively examine REDD policies across Latin America, including a focus on social aspects. It will prove invaluable for academics and postgraduate students in the fields of environmental studies, environmental politics, geography, social planning, social and environmental impact assessment, development studies, and Latin American area studies. Policy-makers, planners and practitioners working on REDD at national and international levels (both official and NGO sectors) will also find plenty of refreshing data in this much-needed resource.
The Lands of Partitioned Poland, 1795-1918 comprehensively covers an important, complex, and controversial period in the history of Poland and East Central Europe, beginning in 1795 when the remnanst of the Polish Commonwealth were distributed among Prussia, Austria, and Russia, and culminating in 1918 with the re-establishment of an independent Polish state. Until this thorough and authoritative study, literature on the subject in English has been limited to a few chapters in multiauthored works. Chronologically, Wandycz traces the histories of the lands under Prussian, Austrian, and Russian rule, pointing out their divergent evolution as well as the threads that bound them together. The result is a balanced, comprehensive picture of the social, political, economic, and cultural developments of all nationalities inhabiting the land of the old commonwealth, rather than a limited history of one state (Poland) and one people (the Poles).

Author: Joseph J. Carr
This volume investigates the ways in which people in the early Middle Ages used the past: to legitimate the present, to understand current events, and as a source of identity. Each essay examines the mechanisms by which ideas about the past were subtly (and sometimes not so subtly) reshaped for present purposes. As well as written histories, also discussed are saints' lives, law codes, buildings, Biblical commentary, monastic foundations, canon law and oral traditions. This is the first book to investigate systematically this important topic.
Le Nez D'un Notaire
Author: Edmond About
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
I L'Orient et l'Occident sont aux prises - Le sang coule Maître Alfred L'Ambert, avant le coup fatal qui le contraignit à changer de nez, était assurément le plus brillant notaire de France. En ce temps-là, il avait trente-deux ans ; sa taille était noble, ses yeux grands et bien fendus ; son front olympien, sa barbe et ses cheveux du blond le plus aimable. Son nez (premier du nom) se recourbait en bec d'aigle. Me croira qui voudra, mais la cravate blanche lui allait dans la perfection. Est-ce parce qu'il la portait depuis l'âge le plus tendre, ou parce qu'il se fournissait chez la bonne faiseuse ? Je suppose que c'était pour ces deux raisons à la fois.

Author: Joseph S. Czestochowski, Edgar Degas, Anne Pingeot
Publisher: International Arts
Considered by Jean Renoir to be the greatest living sculptor of his time, Edgar Degas exhibited only one statute during his lifetime--the incomparable Little Dancer, Aged Fourteen. The work met with mixed reception, labeled vulgar by the conservative and quintessentially modern by the avant-garde. Following the artist's death in 1917, about 80 works were rescued, from his studio, and his heirs contracted with a foundry to case them in strictly limited editions, which have long since become prized pieces the world over. Documenting only four complete vintage sets of the bronzes, this lavishly illustrated catalogue presents for the first time stunning color images of the sculptures together with archival photographs taken of the original models found in Degas's studio in 1917-18 and historic photographs taken 50 years ago by Leonard von Matt. Included also are reprints of essays written in 1921 by a contemporary of the artist, by John Rewald to accompany relatively early exhibitions of Degas's work in the 50s and 70s, and by contemporary art historians, as well as appendices that include extensive exhibition, sales, and auction records, among other primary source materials.
