Sydney Italian Festival
On 19 March, 1932, after nine years of planning and building, more than a million Australians crossed the newly opened Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest arch bridge in the world. This revised edition of Peter Spearitt's biography of the Bridge celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in March 2012. It tells the extraordinary story of the Bridge's design and construction, the drama of its official opening, and the way it has taken a central place in Sydney's celebrations and become a much-loved symbol of the city. The Bridge has inspired great art and drawn visitors from all over the world to marvel and climb it, yet is still so familiar that Sydneysiders refer to it endearingly as the coathanger. The Sydney Harbour Bridge celebrates not only a magnificent structure, but the people who use it.
Novelist Peter Carey draws the reader into a wild and wonderful journey of discovery and re-discovery of Sydney.
After a 3-year editorial effort, Enrich Professional Publishing is proud to offer the first comprehensive English language overview of journalism in China, The History of Journalism in China (10-Volume Set). Over the course of 10 volumes, and more than 2,000 pages, the series spans 200 BC to 1991, and covers all aspects of journalism in China's history, including newspapers, periodicals, news agencies, broadcast television, photography, documentary film, and journals. The History of Journalism presents the development of journalism in China against the backdrop of the major events in China's history (the first and second Sino-Japanese Wars, the Chinese Civil War, and the Cultural Revolution). The 10 volumes of The History of Journalism offer unique insights into all aspects of journalism in the entire Chinese-speaking world, from the Mainland to Taiwan to Hong Kong to Macau and to the larger Chinese diaspora. The author of this series, Fang Hanqi, Professor Emeritus in Journalism, has been called the "Father of China's Modern Journalism."
First published in 1855 and reissued here in the second edition of that year, this two-volume work celebrates the life of the author, wit and clergyman Sydney Smith (1771-1845). A founder of the second Edinburgh Review, Smith is best remembered for his entertaining observations and witticisms. The work comprises a memoir, written by Smith's daughter Saba Holland (1802-66), and a selection of letters, edited by Sarah Austin (1793-1867). Together, the volumes offer private insights into a man who lived much of his life in the public eye. Sharing her father's sense of humour, Holland peppers her memoir in Volume 1 with many of his best jokes, while also emphasising his character as a compassionate clergyman, loving father and dutiful friend. Volume 2 continues with Smith's letters, selected for the light that they shed on his character.
