A Norwegian Tragedy Will China Dominate the 21st Century?
By Jonathan Fenby

"Jonathan Fenby offers a well-informed and balanced assessment of China's past and prospects, recognising its remarkable economic achievements but also noting the huge economic, social and political challenges it confronts. China will not, he concludes, dominate the world in the 21st century. He is almost certainly right."
Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator, The Financial Times

"An excellent, current guide to the challenges and dangers ahead for modern China. It describes, with verve and insight, why the 'China Dream' may lead to a chilly awakening."
Robert B. Zoellick, former president of the World Bank Group, U.S. Trade Representative, and U.S. Deputy Secretary of State


Turbulent and Mighty Continent: What Future for Europe? Correspondence
By Sigmund Freud & Anna Freud

"This compendious volume, expertly translated and annotated, provides a riveting insight into the relations between the two psychoanalysts in the Freud household - the Professor, himself, and Anna, the daughter he named his Antigone...This exchange of letters and postcards, with ever illuminating notes, has the heft of an intimate biography. I couldn't put it down."
Lisa Appignanesi, Chair of the Freud Museum London and author of Mad, Bad and Sad

"In this 500 page shrine everything is perfectly collated, ordered, logged; every bit of background that could be found has been meticulously researched and impartially presented... I enjoyed it more by opening at random, picking out a letter as though it was loose, in a drawer, rather than ordered in a book. Read this way ... a reader can both experience and appreciate the ordinary in the lives of these two extraordinary people."
The Independent

"In this remarkable book, Anna also emerges as intelligent, and sometimes both feisty and capable, eschewing, without ever quite saying so, conventional choices made by so many of her contemporaries."
