181 editions published between 1941 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 2,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells the inside story of Russia from the treason trials to the Nazi-Soviet war. Joseph E. Davies was appointed American Ambassador to the USSR on November 16, 1936, and left for his post shortly thereafter. He arrived to find the treason trial of Karl Radek approaching its climax. He remained in Moscow until the eve of the Czechoslovak crisis. Mr. Davies' departure from Moscow did not end his activities in the field of Russian-American relations. After a year and a half as Ambassador to Brussels, he was summoned back to Washington to seve as special assistant to the State Department in charge of war emergency problems and policies. Mission to Moscow is a report to the American people on the facts which enabled Mr. Davies to predict the Nazi-Soviet Pact, the outbreak of the war, the German attack on Russia, and the amazing resistance of the Red Army. In addition to telling a new story for the fist time, Mission to Moscow tells this story in a new way. The book is made up entirely of confidential dispatches to the State Department, selections from diary and journal entries, and correspondence both official and personal. - Jacket flap

The autobiography of a super-tramp by W. H Davies( Book )

12 editions published between 1927 and 1984 in Chinese and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A vagrant de Tocqueville gives an eloquent, dry-eyed report of his tramping adventures in the violent underworld of late 19th century America and Britain An untutored Welsh tramp who became a popular poet acclaimed by the conservative Georgians and the vanguard Ezra Pound alike, W.H. Davies surprised his contemporaries with the unlikeliest portrait of the artist as a young man ever written. After a delinquent childhood Davies renounced home and apprenticeship and at twenty-two sailed to America--the first of more than a dozen Atlantic crossings, often made by cattle boat. From 1893 to 1899 he was schooled by the hard men of the road, disdaining regular work and subsisting by begging. Crossing Canada to join the "Klondyke" gold rush, Davies fell while hopping a train. His foot was crushed and his leg amputated. "All the wildness had been taken out of me," Davies wrote, "and my adventures after this were not of my own seeking." Praised by Osbert Sitwell for his "primitive splendour and directness," Davies evokes the beauty and frontier violence of turn-of-the-century America in prose that George Bernard Shaw commended to "literary experts for its style alone." The insurgent wanderlust that found an American voice in Jack London and Jack Kerouac is expressed here in a raucous true adventure story by the man Shaw called "the incorrigible Supertramp who wrote this amazing book.""--
Introduction to environmental engineering by Mackenzie Leo Davis( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in Chinese and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Davis and Cornwell's Introduction to Environmental Engineering is one of the most comprehensive resources on the multiple aspects of environmental engineering, from solid waste disposal to air and noise pollution. Pedagogically oriented toward engineers, the text places a much-needed emphasis on fundamental concepts, definitions, problem-solving, and design, while providing numerous homework problems and discussion questions in each chapter. The 4th edition features completely up-to-date coverage of environmental laws, regulations, and standards, as well as the addition of a new chapter on materials and energy balances, and end of chapter computer application problems. A discussion on environmental ethics complete with case studies and homework problems presents the legal framework that governs environmental engineering design."--Publisher's description

Mission to Moscow( Visual )

1 edition published in 1943 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In their relentless battle against Hitler, the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. were comrades ... or at least comrades-in-arms. Hollywood joined the fight with Mission to Moscow, based on Ambassador Joseph E. Davies' bestseller about his pre-World War II experiences in the Soviet Union. The film features Academy Award winner Walter Huston as Davies, plus accomplished actors playing the headline-dominating figures of Churchill, Stalin, von Ribbentrop, Litvinov, Molotov and more. For its sometimes-sympathetic picture of Stalin's regime, the film sparked impassioned debate then and remains fascinating now, both for its insights into early American-Soviet relations and its urgent sense of the danger the emerging Axis Powers posed to the world"--Container
