  • Dalai Lamaby Mayank Chhaya

    I.B.Tauris 2008; US$ 14.95

    If Tibet is the stubborn weak link in China's drive for recognition and respect as a world superpower, then the Dalai Lama holds the key to China's ambitions.

  • Unknown Stalin, Theby Roy Medvedev; Zhores A. Medvedev; Ellen Dahrendorf

    I.B.Tauris 2003; US$ 7.12

    Josef Stalin remains one of the greatest enigmas of modern history. Unflinching, impenetrable, inhuman in his cruelty, bathed in misery himself, he represents to many a very paradigm of evil ? perhaps, in his icy rationalism, even more so than Hitler himself. More than a hundred biographies of Stalin have been written since his death in 1953, but 'The... more...
