6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Proud Tower: A Portrait of the World Before the War, 1890-1914 (1966). [Tuchman] brings to life the disparate worlds of the self-satisfied English aristocracy and the miserable poor whose conditions gave rise to international anarchism; revisits the national madness of the Dreyfus Affair in France; considers the naiveté and cynicism of the varied participants in the international peace conferences at The Hague; mounts a dazzling foray into cultural criticism with a meditation on the operas of Richard Strauss; and creates unforgettable portraits of such political titans as Thomas B. Reed, longtime Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, and French Socialist leader Jean Jaurès. Honoring the historian's ideal to envision life 'as it really was, ' Tuchman paints a fin-de-siècle world 'bursting with new tensions and accumulated energies.'"--Dust jacket flap
Notes from China by Barbara W Tuchman( Book )

12 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A journalistic tour de force, this wide-ranging collection by the author of the Pulitzer Prize'winning biography Stilwell and the American Experience in China is a classic in its own right. During the summer of 1972'a few short months after Nixon's legendary visit to China'master historian Barbara W. Tuchman made her own trip to that country, spending six weeks in eleven cities and a variety of rural settlements. The resulting reportage was one of the first evenhanded portrayals of Chinese culture that Americans had ever read. Tuchman's observations capture the people as they lived, from workers in the city and provincial party bosses to farmers, scientists, and educators. She demonstrates the breadth and scope of her expertise in discussing the alleviation of famine, misery, and exploitation; the distortion of cultural and historical inheritances into ubiquitous slogans; news media, schools, housing, and transportation; and Chairman Mao's techniques for reasserting the Revolution. This edition also includes Tuchman's "fascinating" (The New York Review of Books) essay, "If Mao Had Come to Washington in 1945"'a tantalizing piece of speculation on a proposed meeting between Mao and Roosevelt that would have changed the course of postwar history. "Shrewdly observed ... Tuchman enters another plea for coolness, intelligence and rationality in American Asian policies. One can hardly disagree."'The New York Times Book Review
A distant mirror : the calamitous 14th century by Barbara W Tuchman( Recording )

30 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourteenth century reflects two contradictory images: on the one hand, a glittering time of crusades and castles, cathedrals and chivalry, and the exquisitely decorated Books of Hours; and on the other, a time of ferocity and spiritual agony, a world of chaos and the plague. Barbara Tuchman reveals both the great rhythms of history and the grain and texture of domestic life as it was lived. Here are the guilty passions, loyalties and treacheries, political assassinations, sea battles and sieges, corruption in high places and ay earning for reform, satire and humor, sorcery and demonology, and lust and sadism on the stage. Here are proud cardinals, beggars, feminists, university scholars, grocers, bankers, mercenaries, mystics, lawyers and tax collectors, and, dominating all, the knight in his valor and "furious follies," a "terrible worm in an iron cocoon."

The proud tower : [a portrait of the world before the war, 1890-1914] by Barbara W Tuchman( )

18 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fateful quarter century leading up to World War I was a time when the world of privilege still existed in Olympian luxury and the world of protest was "heaving in its pain, its power, and its hate." The age was the climax of a century of the most accelerated rate of change to that point in history, a cataclysmic shaping of destiny. Barbara Tuchman brings to vivid life the people, places, and events that shaped the years leading up to the Great War: the Edwardian aristocracy; the anarchists of Europe and America; Germany and its self-depicted hero, Richard Strauss; Diaghilev's Russian Ballet and Stravinsky's music; the Dreyfus Affair; two peace conferences in The Hague; and, finally, the youth, ideals, enthusiasm, and tragedy of socialism, epitomized by the death of heroic Jean Jaures on the night the war began and an epoch ended

Tackles the pervasive presence of folly in governments through the ages. Defining folly as the pursuit by governments of policies contrary to their own interests, despite the availability of feasible alternatives, Tuchman details four decisive turning points in history that illustrate the very heights of folly in government: the Trojan War, the breakup of the Holy See provoked by the Renaissance popes, the loss of the American colonies by Britain's George III, and the United States' persistent folly in Vietnam
