из «третьего мира» – в «первый»
Lee Kuan Yew - 2000-10-03
Рейтинг Goodreads
Ли Куан Ю (1923 г. рождения), автор впервые публикуемых на русском языке воспоминаний, выдающийся политический деятель второй половины XX века. С именем этого человека неразрывно связана вся история создания, развития и процветания такого уникального образования как город-государство — Сингапур. Республика Сингапур менее чем за 40 лет национального суверенитета превратилась в один из самых индустриальных центров в Юго-Восточной Азии, заняв важное место не только в региональной политике и экономике, но и в системе мирохозяйственных связей и международной политике. Книга «Из третьего мира в первый» — это не просто мемуары политического деятеля. Это поучительные размышления о том, как добиться признания и успеха.

Альберт Эйнштейн
His Life and Universe
Walter Isaacson - 2007-04-10
Рейтинг Goodreads
Уолтер Айзексон, автор знаменитой биографии Стивена Джобса, написал книгу об одном из самых известных ученых XX века, Альберте Эйнштейне. Он не только подробно и доступно изложил суть научных концепций и открытий автора теории относительности, но и увлекательно рассказал об Эйнштейне-человеке. В книге приводится множество документальных материалов – письма, воспоминания, дневниковые записи. Перед нами встает образ удивительно талантливого человека, мечтателя и бунтаря, гуманиста и мыслителя.
