East and West( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through careful studies conducted in the U.S., U.K. and East Asia, researchers came to the surprising conclusion that in many aspects, people from the 'East' and people from the 'West' think in diametrically opposite ways. Scientists determined that cultural differences trump theories that the brain's thought processes operate in much the same manner for all people. As cultures and economies become more interwoven, it is increasingly important to understand these differences and how they might affect communication and negotiations in both social and business settings."--Container

Reading Hardy's landscapes by Michael Irwin( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book proposes that a Hardy novel should be read very much as a Constable painting is 'read' - the landscape as significant as the figures who traverse it, the background as important as the story. It analyses the recurring emphases and implications in Hardy's innumerable descriptions of birds, plants, insects, light, weather, sound, movement. The ephemeral lives of his human protagonists are seen to be half dissolved in the ceaseless patterns of motion, change and dissolution in the teeming world they inhabit. Hardy emerges as no mere story-teller, in the nineteenth-century tradition, but as a poet and a modernist who dramatizes a vision, a way of seeing and understanding the world."--Jacket
