The generalissimo : Chiang Kai-shek and the struggle for modern China by Jay Taylor( Book )
17 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 2,186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chiang was a man of war who led the most ancient and populous country in the world through a quarter century of bloody revolutions, civil conflict, and wars of resistance against Japanese aggression. In 1949, when he was defeated by Mao Zedong, he fled to Taiwan, where he ruled for another twenty-five years. Playing a key role in the cold war with China, Chiang suppressed opposition with his "white terror," controlled inflation and corruption, carried out land reform, and raised personal income, health, and educational levels on the island. --from publisher description

The Generalissimo's son : Chiang Ching-kuo and the revolutions in China and Taiwan by Jay Taylor( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in Chinese and English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In his youth Ching-kuo was a Communist and a Trotskyite, and he lived twelve years in Russia. He died in 1988 as the leader of Taiwan, a Chinese society with a flourishing consumer economy and a budding but already wild, woolly, and open democracy. He was an actor in many of the events of the last century that shaped the history of China's struggles and achievements in the modern era: the surge of nationalism among Chinese youth, the grand appeal of Marxism-Leninism, the terrible battle against fascist Japan, and the long, destructive civil war between the Nationalists and the Communists. In 1949, he fled to Taiwan with his father and two million Nationalists. He led the brutal suppression of dissent on the island and was a major player in the cold war between Communist China and America." "Jay Taylor underscores the interaction of political developments on the mainland and in Taiwan and concludes that if China ever makes a similar transition, it will owe much to the Taiwan example and the Generalissimo's son."--Jacket

The core ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Lying 4,000 miles beneath the surface and with temperatures nearly as hot as the Sun's, the inaccessibility of the planet's center has long been a problem for researchers. In this program scientists who have journeyed deep within the Earth explain how the core is studied and what findings reveal about the way the planet was formed. Incredibly, the malfunctioning of the Hubble telescope also led experts to a better understanding of the interior, and seismologists detonating explosives make contributions as well. But in Tokyo geophysicists who have recreated conditions at the core are finding evidence that it is cooling faster than previously believed, with serious implications for life on Earth"--Videodisc label

The future of cooking, Heston tells us, lies in the secret recipes of the past.

He is on a mission to recreate famous period dishes for the ultimate contemporary banquets. Heston's mission is to surprise jaded 21st century palates by scientifically reconstructing an inventive back-to-the-future banquet consisting of forgotten flavours, textures and taste sensations. In each episode, Heston explores a period of extraordinary gastronomic innovation; recreating 'lost' recipes, discovering forgotten flavours and ingredients and travelling to remote areas to source unusual foods"--SBS TV website
