From Memex to hypertext : Vannevar Bush and the mind's machine by James M Nyce( Book )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1945, Vannevar Bush, the engineer who designed the world's most powerful analog computers and the official responsible for U.S. scientific research and development during WWII, published an essay in which he predicted the development of a new kind of computing machine he called Memex. Today, computers in millions of offices and homes perform tasks that closely resemble the ideas that Bush proposed. For many people in the fields of computer and information science
The secret history of the Mongols : the origin of Chinghis Khan : an adaptation of the Yuan chʼao pi shih, based primarily on the English translation by Francis Woodman Cleaves by Paul Kahn( Book )

18 editions published between 1984 and 1998 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So begins Paul Kahn's elegant and readable adaptation of The Secret History of the Mongols, the Chinese version of which is known as the Yuan Chʼao Pi Shih. In open verse stanzas of great suppleness and power, Kahn has adapted the scholarly English translation of Francis Woodman Cleaves into colloquial language, making this exciting narrative accessible to all readers. The original Secret History is perhaps the oldest text written in the Mongolian language. It was composed in the mid-13th century, just decades after the death of Chingis Khan in 1227, and was the private property of the royal family. This uniquely detailed account of the rise of the great "world conqueror," no doubt partly served as a confirmation of the Mongolian nobility's status, and therefore may be compared with the Aeneid of Virgil and The Song of Roland. Although it opens in a mythical past, The Secret History of the Mongols quickly becomes a treasure-trove of factual information, not only about the life and career of Chingis Khan, but about the Mongolian people. It describes in fascinating detail the daily life, social structures, and customs of the tribes of Central Asia, and in terms of accuracy and immediacy eclipses the more familiar Travels of Marco Polo. It thus stands as a cultural and historical record of unusual value. -- Back cover
