Strange rebels : 1979 and the birth of the 21st century by Christian Caryl( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After World War II, a secular, progressive consensus defined the international order. That changed in 1979, when a series of counterrevolutions swept the globe, blazing a path for a new era. China launched reforms that would make it the economic powerhouse it is today. Pope John Paul II traveled to Poland, challenging communism in Eastern Europe by re-igniting its people's suppressed Catholic faith. An Islamic revolution transformed Iran into a theocracy almost overnight, while the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan gave rise to that country's mujahedin resistance, the precursor to al-Qaeda. Margaret Thatcher became prime minister, returning Britain to a purer form of free-market capitalism--and inspiring Ronald Reagan to do the same. Weaving these stories into a brisk and gripping narrative, award-winning journalist Christian Caryl's Strange Rebels offers a groundbreaking explanation of the year that set the course for the twenty-first century."--

This account of the five simultaneous counterrevolutions in 1979 shows how that critical year changed the course of history and shaped the world we live in today. China marked the start of sweeping market-oriented reforms that have made the country the economic powerhouse it is today. It was also the year that Pope John Paul II traveled to Poland, confronting communism in Eastern Europe by reigniting its people's suppressed Catholic faith. In Iran, the Islamic Revolution transformed the nation into a theocracy almost overnight, overthrowing the Shah's modernizing monarchy. Margaret Thatcher became prime minister of Britain, returning it to a purer form of free-market capitalism and opening the way for Ronald Reagan to do the same in the United States. And in Afghanistan, a Soviet invasion fueled an Islamic holy war with global consequences; the Afghan mujahedin presaged the rise of al-Qaeda and served as a key factor in the fall of communism
Building the dragon city : history of the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Hong Kong by Christian Caryl( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book celebrates 60 years of the founding of the Faculty of Architecture at HKU. The development of the Faculty has paralleled the vibrant growth of Hong Kong, especially following World War II when it became clear that a new generation of first-rate architects and other building professionals were needed if Hong Kong was to adequately house its burgeoning population and develop into a world-class city. Hong Kong's role as a global city has been fulfilled, and HKU Architecture graduates can take pride in having contributed significantly to the city's dazzling skyline. The history of the Faculty, Building the Dragon City, makes it clear that the basic issues surrounding the education of building professionals have been vigorously debated for the last six decades and this has been reflected in the development of the Faculty

Norman Foster by Daniel Treiber( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Norman Foster is regarded, on account of his work over three decades, as one of the UK's leading architects. His buildings, from spectacular large-scale projects such as the Hong King and Shanghai Bank and Stanstead Airport to intimate interiors such as the Sackler Galleries, incorporate the latest technical innovations, which the architect uses with enthusiasm in close co-operation with engineers and clients. His architectural idiom maintains a balance between British understatement and seductive elegance. The architect and experienced author Daniel Treiber follows Foster's work from its beginnings in Team 4 with Richard Rogers to the series of new buildings in the 1990's that show him at the high point of his career. The book culminates with Foster's scheme for the world's highest skyscraper in Tokyo Bay and concludes with a detailed list of works
