Бенджамин Франклин The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin


The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is the traditional name for the unfinished record of his own life written by Benjamin Franklin from 1771 to 1790; however, Franklin himself appears to have called the work his Memoirs. Although it had a tortuous publication history after Franklin's death, this work has become one of the most famous and influential examples of an autobiography ever written. Franklin's account of his life is divided into four parts, reflecting the different periods at which he wrote them. There are actual breaks in the narrative between the first three parts, but Part Three's narrative continues into Part Four without an authorial break (only an editorial one). In the «Introduction» of the 1916 publication of the Autobiography, editor F. W. Pine wrote that Franklin's biography provided the «most remarkable of all the remarkable histories of our self-made men» with Franklin as the greatest exemplar. The most famous writings of Benjamin Franklin include: Silence Dogood letters, A Dissertation on Liberty and Necessity, Pleasure and Pain, The Busy-Body letters, Poor Richard's Almanack, The Drinker's Dictionary, Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind, Peopling of Countries, etc., The Way to Wealth, Pennsylvania Chronicle, Rules by Which a Great Empire May Be Reduced to a Small One, Proposed alliance with the Iroquois, A Letter To A Royal Academy, Remarks Concerning the Savages of North America, The Morals of Chess, An Address to the Public, A Plan for Improving the Condition of the Free Blacks, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, Bagatelles and Satires, Franklin as a journalist and many more.

John Paton Davies, Jr. China Hand


At the height of the McCarthyite hysteria of the 1950s, John Paton Davies, Jr., was summoned to the State Department one morning and fired. His offense? The career diplomat had counseled the U.S. government during World War II that the Communist forces in China were poised to take over the country&mdash;which they did, in 1949. Davies joined the thousands of others who became the victims of a political maelstrom that engulfed the country and deprived the United States of the wisdom and guidance of an entire generation of East Asian diplomats and scholars. The son of American missionaries, Davies was born in China at the turn of the twentieth century. Educated in the United States, he joined the ranks of the newly formed Foreign Service in the 1930s and returned to China, where he would remain until nearly the end of World War II. During that time he became one of the first Americans to meet and talk with the young revolutionary known as Mao Zedong. He documented the personal excesses and political foibles of Chinese Nationalist leader Chiang Kai-shek. As a political aide to General Joseph «Vinegar Joe» Stilwell, the wartime commander of the Allied forces in East and South Asia, he traveled widely in the region, meeting with colonial India's Nehru and Gandhi to gauge whether their animosity to British rule would translate into support for Japan. Davies ended the war serving in Moscow with George F. Kennan, the architect of America's policy toward the Soviet Union. Kennan found in Davies a lifelong friend and colleague. Neither, however, was immune to the virulent anticommunism of the immediate postwar years. China Hand is the story of a man who captured with wry and judicious insight the times in which he lived, both as observer and as actor.

Erskine Childers The Riddle of the Sands


Written in 1903 by the active and ultimately executed Irish republican Erskine Childers, «The Riddle of the Sands: A Record of Secret Service» unfolds the story of a minor official in the Foreign Office, Carruthers, and his complete boredom with his occupation. Although his prospects are good, he feels an emptiness in his life, and this in large part encourages Carruthers to go sailing with his friend Davies. This acquaintance suspects German naval activity in the Baltic, and the two overcome numerous obstacles, both by suspicious German patrol boats and tricky inshore sailing, to discover information that complicates the feelings of both young men. The lone masterpiece of a man who died for a cause, this earliest of spy thrillers details not only the love of Davies, but the revival of Carruthers in a time of intrigue, adventure, suspicion, and burgeoning war.
