A superb autobiography by one of the great literary figures of the twentieth century, Simone de Beauvoir's Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter offers an intimate picture of growing up in a bourgeois French family, rebelling as an adolescent against the conventional expectations of her class, and striking out on her own with an intellectual and existential ambition exceedingly rare in a young woman in the 1920s. She vividly evokes her friendships, love interests, mentors, and the early days of the most important relationship of her life, with fellow student Jean-Paul Sartre, against the backdrop of a turbulent political time.

"Kuniyoshi The Faithful Samurai" is a pioneering publication dealing with the famous Kuniyoshi series of the 47 masterless samurai ("rônin"). It contains two complete series: "Seichô gishi den" ("The faithful samurai, 1847-48") and its sequel "Seichô gishin den", ("The faithful hearts, 1848"). This true 18th-century tale of 47 "rônin" avenging the death of their lord is enormously popular in Japan. The dramatized version, commonly known as "Chûshingura", ("Treasury of loyal retainers"), has endured for over 250 years as one of Japan's most popular Kabuki plays. Its heroes were often depicted in Ukiyo-e prints. Kuniyoshi was a master in the genre of warrior prints, and his series expressively portrays these warrior 'folk heroes'. This publication also includes translations of the texts recounting each hero's exploits that appear on the prints.

In 2005 the Hong Kong newspaper 'The Standard' reported that no less than 183 Chinese cities had the official ambition of becoming modern international metropolises. Urbanisation is the engine behind the economic, political and social advances in China. This book shows the influence of these unfamiliar cities on the world economy. After the explosive growth of vast cities on the Chinese coast near Peking, Shanghai and Guangzhou, the development is now spreading westwards. Metropolises are springing up like mushrooms in Central and Western China. Still, it takes more than just a large number of residents or skyscrapers, of course, to achieve metropolitan status. These vast cities still lack an international reputation, a lively cultural life, and the presence of different population groups. Or don't they?
