Paris : city of light, 1919-1939 by Vincent Cronin( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paris between the wars: our impression is one of gaiety, frivolity, fashion, of exuberant living - a city whose lights were put out by the terrifyingly rapid advance of the German panzers in 1940. And so, in some ways, it was. But as Vincent Cronin shows in this compelling and original book - which encompasses social, intellectual, political and cultural history - the full picture was much more complex. Cronin examines developments in the arts, fashion and politics, and has something surprising to say about each of them; but also investigates the achievements of Parisian philosophers and industrialists. It is notoriously difficult to perceive valid patterns across such a broad range of human activities as these, but that is exactly what Cronin has done. The result is a thoroughly convincing and engrossing portrait of a city outwardly confident and intent on enjoying life, but behind that uncertain, divided and ultimately incapable of standing up to aggression

Catherine the Great: autocrat and Empress of all Russia by Ian Grey( Book )

16 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catherine II of Russia was the most remarkable of the Enlightened Autocrats of the eighteenth century. She was a woman of compelling charm and elegance, a personality both enigmatic and fascinating. She had a prodigious appetite for work, great intellectual curiosity, boundless ambition and vanity, and at a time of license she was notorious for the number of her lovers. Her prodigal expenditure and her patronage of the arts made her reign an era of splendor, while her foreign policy and conquests carried Russian power and prestige to new heights. She cast a spell over most of her contemporaries in Russia and in Western Europe, and the spell has lingered: indeed, Voltaire's apostrophe -- "Happy the writer who a century hence will produce the history of Catherine II" -- well reflects the approach of most historians to her. But Catherine and her reign need to be examined afresh. - Preface
