普利策奖两度获奖历史作家塔奇曼以一种极度流畅、诗意的文学笔法,将一战爆发前西方世界社会、政治、文化的主要面貌,清晰呈现在读者面前。这种写法,类似于威尔逊的《到芬兰车站》一书。不只如此,塔奇曼还通过他的叙述,把一战爆发内在的社会和政治变迁动力,交待得非常清楚。

During the fateful quarter century leading up to World War I, the climax of a century of rapid, unprecedented change, a privileged few enjoyed Olympian luxury as the underclass was “heaving in its pain, its power, and its hate.” In The Proud Tower, Barbara W. Tuchman brings the era to vivid life: the decline of the Edwardian aristocracy; the Anarchists of Europe and America; Germany and its self-depicted hero, Richard Strauss; Diaghilev’s Russian ballet and Stravinsky’s music; the Dreyfus Affair; the Peace Conferences in The Hague; and the enthusiasm and tragedy of Socialism, epitomized by the assassination of Jean Jaurès on the night the Great War began and an epoch came to a close.

 

2、The Story of Ferdinand

动画电影《公牛历险记》,情节温暖动人,费迪南是一头特立独行的公牛,“其他的公牛爱跑、爱跳、爱抵角,费迪南喜欢静静地坐着,闻闻花香。”在费迪南强壮、粗犷的外表下,有着一颗温暖柔软的内心。 “那些和他一起长大的公牛们成天打架,他们最大的心愿是参加马德里的斗牛大赛。

All the other bulls run, jump, and butt their heads together in fights. Ferdinand, on the other hand, would rather sit and smell the flowers. So what will happen when Ferdinand is picked for the bullfights in Madrid?

The Story of Ferdinand has inspired, enchanted, and provoked readers ever since it was first published in 1936 for its message of nonviolence and pacifism. In WWII times, Adolf Hitler ordered the book burned in Nazi Germany, while Joseph Stalin, the leader of the Soviet Union, granted it privileged status as the only non-communist children’s book allowed in Poland.

 

3、Gilgamesh: A Verse Narrative

《吉尔伽美什史诗》是世界文学课的必读,但我不得不说我希望早点读这本书。梅森的翻译简单易懂引人入胜。真实得让我觉得我是一个真正的巴比伦人,亲自听到的故事。这个故事真实地描述了和最好的朋友建立纯粹柏拉图式的关系是什么感觉。而且,剧中人物的冒险经历也非常有趣。

One of the oldest and most universal stories known in literature, the epic of Gilgamesh presents the grand, timeless themes of love and death, loss and reparations, within the stirring tale of a hero-king and his doomed friend.

A National Book Award finalist, Herbert Mason’s retelling is at once a triumph of scholarship, a masterpiece of style, and a labor of love that grew out of the poet’s long affinity with the original.

 

4、Wind, Sand and Stars

那个金色头发,神情略带忧伤,来自小行星B612的小王子,让全世界的读者记住了安东尼·圣艾修伯里的名字。如果说《小王子》是修伯里的一张名片,那么《风沙星辰》便更象是一个通道。它给我们提供这样一个契机,使我们得以进入修伯里的内心世界,读懂他终其一生的爱与信仰。

Recipient of the Grand Prix of the Académie Française, Wind, Sand and Stars captures the grandeur, danger, and isolation of flight. Its exciting account of air adventure, combined with lyrical prose and the spirit of a philosopher, makes it one of the most popular works ever written about flying. Translated by Lewis Galantière.

5、Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness 

书籍详情页面:http://www.yunjiale.net/Nudge

泰勒写《助推》的两个目的,第一个目的是用行为经济学的一些技术和方法来影响这个公共政策的制定。第二个目的是想制造一种新的所谓的思考模式,这种思考模式无论哪个政党都可以共同使用。这个行为经济学的一个原则就是要在经济学当中引用心理学的一些相关方法来分析人的行为。

Every day we make choices—about what to buy or eat, about financial investments or our children’s health and education, even about the causes we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. Nudge is about how we make these choices and how we can make better ones. Using dozens of eye-opening examples and drawing on decades of behavioral science research, Nobel Prize winner Richard H. Thaler and Harvard Law School professor Cass R. Sunstein show that no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way, and that we are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions. But by knowing how people think, we can use sensible “choice architecture” to nudge people toward the best decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society, without restricting our freedom of choice.
