Life along the Silk Road By Susan Whitfield, Second Edition, 2015; The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble

Life along the Silk Road

Second Edition 2015

Susan Whitfield (Author)


In this long-awaited second edition, Susan Whitfield broadens her exploration of the Silk Road and expands her rich and varied portrait of life along the great pre-modern trade routes of Eurasia. This new edition is comprehensively updated to support further understanding of themes relevant to global and comparative history and remains the only history of the Silk Road to reconstruct the route through the personal experiences of travelers.

In the first 1,000 years after Christ, merchants, missionaries, monks, mendicants, and military men traveled the vast network of Central Asian tracks that became known as the Silk Road. Whitfield recounts the lives of twelve individuals who lived at different times during this period, including two characters new to this edition: an African shipmaster and a Persian traveler and writer during the Arab caliphate. With these additional tales, Whitfield extends both geographical and chronological scope, bringing into view the maritime links across the Indian Ocean and depicting the network of north-south routes from the Baltic to the Gulf.

Throughout the narrative, Whitfield conveys a strong sense of what life was like for ordinary men and women on the Silk Road, the individuals usually forgotten to history. A work of great scholarship, Life along the Silk Road continues to be both accessible and entertaining.

混世自白書:「今日美國報」創辦人努哈斯自剖發跡過程

Confessions of an S.O.B.

內容簡介


這不只是一個關於報業或大企業的故事,這是為所有人描繪的夢想實現藍圖。努哈斯說:「你必須設計、說服、讓別人隨你的腳步起舞。」
艾爾‧努哈斯為《今日美國報》創辦人、前甘奈特集團董事會主席。他從大學時代擔任記者開始,在報界力爭上游;一九八二年創辦《今日美國報》,使其在短短數年間成長為全美第一大報。六十五歲(1989年)退休後撰寫本書,此外每週為《今日美國報》及甘奈特旗下其他報紙寫「實話實說」專欄。
S.O.B.:son of a bitch是努哈斯的稱號。
這個從不諱言自己要名要利、也不管謙遜處世那些陳腔濫調,被形容為「什麼都做過」的SOB,且看他現身說法,如何在別人都覺得不可能的情況下、創設家鄉第一份一般性報紙;讓他帶你一睹董事室和新聞室內幕,將地方小報變成國際媒體巨人的過程。他將以新聞工作者的身份,毫無保留、一五一十地道出自己的經驗。
在《混世自白書》裡,他教你:
超越你的上司…
抵擋別人放冷箭…
甩掉想拉下你的混蛋…
做一個成功的混小子…
最重要的,樂在其中。

The idea of home is, for many of us, a complex layering of different time periods and geographic locations: where you were born, when you first encountered life as a three-year-old, where you wandered, where you had your first date and your first kiss, when your family moved, when you went away to school, or where your first job was...These are all seared into our memory as moments of comfort and discomfort, and we all have versions of that.
