Подзаголовок: The last great imperial adventurer
Рейтинг:
Поставляется из: Англии
Описание: The Last Great Imperial Adventurer. Soldier, explorer, mystic, guru, spy - Francis Younghusband began his career as a military adventurer and became a radical visionary. This award-winning biography traces the unpredictable life of the maverick with the `damned rum name`, who singlehandedly led the 1904 British invasion of Tibet, discovered a new route from China to India, organized the first expeditions up Mount Everest, and attempted to start a new world religion. Following in his footsteps, from Calcutta to the snows of the Himalayas, Patrick French pieces together the story of a man who embodied all the romance and folly of Britain`s lost Imperial dream.

Описание: At different times in its history Tibet has been renowned for pacifism and martial prowess, enlightenment and cruelty. The Dalai Lama may be the only religious leader who can inspire the devotion of agnostics. Patrick French has been fascinated by Tibet since he was a teenager. He has read its history, agitated for its freedom, and risked arrest to travel through its remote interior. His love and knowledge inform every page of this learned, literate, and impassioned book.
Talking with nomads and Buddhist nuns, exiles and collaborators, French portrays a nation demoralized by a half-century of Chinese occupation and forced to depend on the patronage of Western dilettantes. He demolishes many of the myths accruing to Tibet–including those centering around the radiant figure of the Dalai Lama. Combining the best of history, travel writing, and memoir, Tibet, Tibet is a work of extraordinary power and insight.

Описание: In 1982, while he was still a schoolboy, Patrick French met the Dalai Lama for the first time. Ever since, he has been fascinated by Tibet's people, its history, and its recent plight. "Tibet, Tibet" is a combination of travel and history. The book offers an exploration of one of the most beautiful, isolated, mysterious and misunderstood countries on earth. It follows Patrick French's progress on a journey through Tibet, sidetracked on the way by a cascade of information, thoughts and reflections on such subjects as the correct method of travelling across a desert by night; the advisability of not naming your children until thr sixth year; and events like the removal of a corrupt Regent's eyeballs by means of a yak's knucklebones in 1933.

Описание: At midnight on 14 August 1947, Britain's 350-year-old Indian Empire cracked io three pieces. The greatest mass migration in history began, as Muslims fled north and Hindus fled south, over a million being massacred on the way. Britain's role as world power came to an end and the course of Asia's future was irrevocably set. Patrick French offers a reinterpretation of the events surrounding India's independence and partition, including the disastrous mistakes made by politicians and the bizarre reasoning behind many of their decisions. Exploring the interplay between characters such as Churchill, Mountbatten and Gandhi, it reveals a tale of idealism and manipulation, hope and tragedy. With sources ranging from newly declassified secret documents to the memories of refugees, Patrick French gives an account of an epic debacle, the impact of which reverberates across Asia to this day.

Описание: 'The soldier, mystic and explorer Francis Younghusband, who fulfilled the romantic dreams of the late British Empire, was once as legendary a figure as Lawrence of Arabia. He lives again most vividly and entertainingly in this remarkable book. ' Michael HolroydIn this travelling biography, Patrick French tells the story of the man who held the world record for the 300-yard dash, discovered a new overland route from China to India, and organized the early assaults on Mount Everest. In 1904 it was Francis Younghusband who single-handedly turned a small diplomatic mission into a full-scale military invasion of the last unexplored country on earth: Tibet. Younghusband spent much of his early life as a leading player in the Great Game -- the battle of wits over the uncharted territory of High Asia -- and his presumed death as a spy in the Pamirs almost sparked off a war between British India and Tsarist Russia. But despite being a classic Edwardian, full of pomposity and repression, in the post-First World War era, he led the way in outlandish, mystical philosophical and sexual free-thinking.

Описание: This is the first major biography of V.S. Naipaul, Nobel Prize winner and one of the most compelling literary figures of the last fifty years. With great feeling for his formidable body of work, and exclusive access to his private papers and personal recollections, Patrick French has produced a lucid and astonishing account of this enigmatic genius: one which looks sensitively and unflinchingly at his relationships, his development as a writer and as a man, his outspokenness, his peerless creativity, and, his extraordinary and enduring position both outside and at the very centre of literary culture.'Its clarity, honesty, even-handedness, its panoramic range and close emotional focus, above all its virtually unprecedented access to the dark secret life at its heart, make it one of the most gripping biographies I've ever read' - Hilary Spurling, "Observer".

'A brilliant biography: exemplary in its thoroughness, sympathetic but tough in tone ...Reading it I was enthralled - and frequently amused (how incredibly funny Naipaul can be!)' - "Spectator". 'A masterly performance ...If a better biography is published this year, I shall be astonished' - Allan Massie, "Literary Review". 'Remarkable.

This biography will change the way we read Naipaul's books' - Craig Brown, "Book of the Week", "Mail on Sunday".

Описание:

A monumental biography of the Indian subcontinent from the award-winning author of "The World Is What It Is: The Authorized Biography of V. S. Naipaul."
Second only to China in the magnitude of its economic miracle and second to none in its potential to shape the new century, India is fast undergoing one of the most momentous transformations the world has ever seen. In this dazzlingly panoramic book, Patrick French chronicles that epic change, telling human stories to explain a larger national narrative. With a familiarity and insight few Westerners could approach, he provides a vital corrective to the many outdated notions about a uniquely dynamic and consequential nation."
