The Art Of War/The Book Of Lord Shang (Wordsworth Classics Of World Literature)
1 The Art Of War/The Book Of Lord Shang (Wordsworth Classics Of World Literature)
Wordsworth Editions Ltd 1999 1853267791 / 9781853267796 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
The two political classics in this book are the product of a time of intense turmoil in Chinese history. Dating from the Period of the Warring States (403-221BC), they anticipate Machiavelli's The Prince by nearly 2000 years. The Art of War is the best known of a considerable body of Chinese works on the subject. It analyses the nature of war, and reveals how victory may be ensured. The Book of Lord Shang is a political treatise for the instruction of rulers. These texts are anything but armchair strategy or ivory-tower speculation. They are serious, urgent and practical responses to the desperate situations in which they were written. They have been immensely influential both inside and outside China.

The Battle Of The Frogs And The Mice: A Homeric Fable
2 The Battle Of The Frogs And The Mice: A Homeric Fable
2013 0399162852 / 9780399162855 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
You will never see war the same way after reading this extraordinary retelling of an ancient Greek fable about a tragically unnecessary battle between mice and frogs. With haunting illustrations, this miniature masterpiece ranks with Animal Farm as one of the greatest parables of human foibles. Originally published in 1962, The Battle of the Frogs and the Mice tells in words and pictures a classic tale of the foolhardiness of war. When Crum-snatcher, a Mouse, cautiously mounts the back of Puff-jaw, King of the Frogs, to explore the Frogs’ pond, the Mouse meets with a disaster which soon brings the two nations into mortal conflict. The course of this tempest in a teapot is developed with wit to assume heroic proportions, and the battle of this small world becomes the story of wars through the ages. George Martin has made an imaginative, free adaptation of a fable originally ascribed to Homer, but now believed to have been written about three hundred years after him by an unknown author. The book’s events are brilliantly depicted by the drawings of Fred Gwynne, a versatile artist known for his role as Herman Munster in the sit-com hit The Munsters. Gwynne’s haunting and unsparingly illustrations portray this chronicle from its pastoral beginning to its bitter end. Together, Martin and Gwynne have made a book of grim delight for adults and young readers alike.

Wordsworth Editions Ltd 2007 1840220856 / 9781840220858 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
From the unsurpassed imagination of the creator of Conan, Robert E. Howard, here are twenty-one tales of suspense, high adventure and Lovecraftian horror.

The Odyssey (Wordsworth Classics)
4 The Odyssey (Wordsworth Classics)
Wordsworth Editions Ltd 2002 1853260258 / 9781853260254 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
With an Introduction and Notes by Adam Roberts Royal Holloway, University of London Homer's great epic describes the many adventures of Odysseus, Greek warrior, as he strives over many years to return to his home island of Ithaca after the Trojan War. His colourful adventures, his endurance, his love for his wife and son have the same power to move and inspire readers today as they did in Archaic Greece, 2800 years ago. This poem has been translated many times over the years, but Chapman's sinewy, gorgeous rendering (1616) stands in a class of its own. Chapman believed himself inspired by the spirit of Homer himself, and matches the breadth and power of the original with a complex and stunning idiom of his own. John Keats expressed his admiration for the resulting work in the famous sonnet, 'On first looking into Chapman's Homer': 'Much have I travelled in the realms of gold...'

Lancelot of the Laik and Sir Tristrem, Alan Lupack
8 Alan Lupack Lancelot of the Laik and Sir Tristrem
Western Michigan Univ Medieval 1994 1879288508 / 9781879288508 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
This new edition makes available to students of English romance and of the Matter of Britain two significant Middle English Arthurian romances: Lancelot of the Laik and Sir Tristrem. The former, a late fifteenth century romance, tells of the adventures of Lancelot, bearing many similarities to the Vulgate Prose Lancelot, but also includes a lengthy section of political advice. The latter is an uncourtly, parodic poem about the knight Tristrem. With its introductions, glosses, notes, and glossary, this accessible edition enables students to enrich their sense of the texture of English treatments of the vast body of legends that grew around the court of Arthur.

Man in the Iron Mask (Wordsworth Classics), Alexandre Dumas
9 Alexandre Dumas Man in the Iron Mask (Wordsworth Classics)
Wordsworth Editions Ltd 2001 1840224355 / 9781840224351 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Introduction and Notes by Keith Wren. University of Kent at Canterbury The Man in the Iron Mask is the final episode in the cycle of novels featuring Dumas celebrated foursome of D Artagnan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, who first appeared in The Three Musketeers. Some thirty-five years on, the bonds of comradeship are under strain as they end up on different sides in a power struggle that may undermine the young Louis XIV and change the face of the French monarchy. In the fast-paced narrative style that was his trademark, Dumas pitches us straight into the action. What is the secret shared by Aramis and Madame de Chevreuse? Why does the Queen Mother fear its revelation? Who is the mysterious prisoner in the Bastille? And what is the nature of the threat he poses? Dumas, the master storyteller, keeps us reading until the climactic scene in the grotto of Locmaria, a fitting conclusion to the epic saga of the musketeers.

The Count of Monte Cristo (Wordsworth Classics), Alexandre Dumas
10 Alexandre Dumas The Count of Monte Cristo (Wordsworth Classics)
Wordsworth Editions Ltd 1998 1853267333 / 9781853267338 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
With an Introduction and Notes by Keith Wren, University of Kent at Canterbury The story of Edmund Dantes, self-styled Count of Monte Cristo, is told with consummate skill. The victim of a miscarriage of justice, Dantes is fired by a desire for retribution and empowered by a stroke of providence. In his campaign of vengeance, he becomes an anonymous agent of fate. The sensational narrative of intrigue, betrayal, escape, and triumphant revenge moves at a cracking pace. Dumas' novel presents a powerful conflict between good and evil embodied in an epic saga of rich diversity that is complicated by the hero's ultimate discomfort with the hubristic implication of his own actions.

Borgo Press 2002 1592248195 / 9781592248193 TRADE PAPERBACK Used; Very Good 
Previous owners stamp on page edges In March 1844 the French magazine _Le Siecle,_ printed the first installment of a story by Alexandre Dumas. It was based, Dumas claimed, on some manuscripts he had found a year earlier in the Bibliotheque Nationale while researching a history he planned to write on Louis XIV. The serial chronicled the adventures of D'Artagnan -- a young swordsman intent on joining the king's musketeers. Young D'Artagnan becomes embroiled in court intrigues, international politics, and ill-fated affairs between royal lovers. As this third serial begins, it is now 1660, and although promised the captaincy of the musketeers at the close of _Twenty Years After,_ D'Artagnan is still trailing his sword in the Louvre as a lowly lieutenant. Louis XIV is well past the age where he should rule, but the ailing Cardinal Mazarin refuses to relinquish the reins of power. Meanwhile, Charles II, a king without a country, travels Europe seeking aid from his fellow monarchs. Athos still resides at La Fère while his son, Raoul de Bragelonne, has entered into the service in the household of M. le Prince. As for Raoul, he has his eyes on an entirely different object than his father -- his childhood companion, Louise de la Valliere, with whom he is hopelessly in love. Porthos, now a baron, is off on some mysterious mission along with Aramis, who is now the Bishop of Vannes. (Volume I of II.)

Twenty Years After (Wordsworth Classics), Alexandre Dumas
15 Alexandre Dumas Twenty Years After (Wordsworth Classics)
Wordsworth Editions Ltd 2009 1840221631 / 9781840221633 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Wordsworth Press, Paperback, 2009, Book Condition: New, This title includes an introduction by A. M. de Medeiros, University of Kent at Canterbury. A year after the publication of "The Three Musketeers", Alexandre Dumas produced a sequel worthy in every respect of the original. In "Twenty Years After" the much beloved D'Artaganan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis reunite to fight the forces of evil. In the original novel they defeated Milady, a formidable foe; now they need to face her vengeful son Mordaunt, as well as countering the machinations of the sinister Cardinal Mazarin. Their adventures also take them to England, where Cromwell is about to topple Charles I. Meanwhile, they must overcome the obstacles which the passing of time has placed between them. Rediscovering strength in unity, they fight for Queen and country. "The Musketeer" novels were a huge success in Dumas' own lifetime, and have lost none of their original appeal. Translated into many languages and adapted for cinema and television, they have helped to make Dumas arguably the most successful exporter of French culture to the wider world.

Democracy In America, Volume 2, Alexis de Tocqueville
16 Alexis de Tocqueville Democracy In America, Volume 2
Vintage 1990 0679728260 / 9780679728269 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Vintage, Paperback, 1990, Book Condition: New; small remainder mark. When Alexis de Tocqueville traveled through the United States in 1831, his mission was to investigate the country's prison system. Instead, he wrote an enduring study of a democracy in its infancy--a study that embraced America's history, geography, politics, legal system, economy, and culture and that remains the most objective, thorough, and insightful of its kind. Here are intriguing glimpses of a vanished America, from town meetings in New England to Indians in the frontier territories of Alabama. But what will intrigue modern readers is how many of Tocqueville's observations still hold true: on the mixed advantages of a free press, the strained relations among the races, and on the threats posed to democracies by consumerism and corruption. This two-volume edition, long considered the definitive version in English, presents Tocqueville's original text, complete with footnotes, along with editorial notes and bilbiographies and a new introduction by Daniel J. Boorstin.
