The Heart Of The Country, A Survey Of A Modern Land. By

RRP $17.99

Ford Madox Ford (born Ford Hermann Hueffer 17 December 1873 - 26 June 1939) was an English novelist, poet, critic and editor whose journals, The English Review and The Transatlantic Review, were instrumental in the development of early 20th-century English literature. Ford is now remembered for his novels The Good Soldier (1915), the Parade's End tetralogy (1924-28) and The Fifth Queen trilogy (1906-08). The Good Soldier is frequently included among the great literature of the 20th century, including the Modern Library 100 Best Novels, Ford was born in Wimbledon[5] to Catherine Madox Brown and Francis Hueffer, the eldest of three; his brother was Oliver Madox Hueffer. Ford's father, who became music critic for The Times, was German and his mother English. His paternal grandfather Johann Hermann Huffer was first to publish Westphalian poet and author Annette von Droste-Hulshoff. Ford used the name of Ford Madox Hueffer, but in 1919 he changed it to Ford Madox Ford (allegedly after World War I because "Hueffer" sounded too Germanic in honour of his grandfather, the Pre-Raphaelite painter Ford Madox Brown, whose biography he had written. In 1889, after the death of his father, Ford and Oliver went to live with their grandfather in London. Ford graduated from the University College School in London, but never attended university."


Quite Curious (a Lowcountry Novella)

RRP $16.99

This will be a short, in between novella with multiple POV's and NOT a full length novel. ------ Graciela is hoping that, despite the reappearance of her father-who's supposed to be dead-her life in Heron Creek might be about the calm down. Her boyfriend's mother has other ideas, ones that include getting to know her son's new squeeze. The proposition makes Beau nervous for more than one reason, a couple of which would be news to Gracie. Amelia's therapy appears to be going well, so that's working in Gracie's favor, but with trouble brewing in Will and Mel's marriage, the moonshiners getting more involved in Heron Creek affairs instead of less, and Leo's sister Lindsay returning from her stint in the state pen, settled isn't the best word to describe life in the small town. Gracie is starting to think that maybe seeing ghosts is the least complicated thing about her...and she's probably right. Includes POVs from Beau, Will, Leo, Amelia, and Clete.


The Hope Of The Country With A Large Population

RRP $24.99

China has the largest population in the world. However, according to the United Nations, India and China are expected to simultaneously reach a population of approximately 1.38 billion by 2030, with India taking a slight lead. China will be all too happy to surrender its position as the country with the largest population. Where does this attitude come from? For China, this situation is symbolic of the solution to the excessive population and a milestone in the "Three-Stage" population development strategy, as well as the people's hope. In order to realize this hope, it firstly depends on the transformation from the previous high birth rate, high death rate, and low growth rate of population, to a high birth rate, low death rate, and high growth rate, and finally to a low birth rate, low death rate, and low growth rate. It also relies on the "post-demographic transition" to a low fertility level since the 1990s, and secondly, is closely related to the population change in the future. Therefore, in-depth studies on population and the development of population, resources, environment, economy, and society should be conducted on the basis of fresh experiences and theories from the international community, in order to move forward with the times to promote the solution to the population problem and realize the dream of rejuvenating the Chinese nation. As a result, population change is linked to this great rejuvenation, as the great rejuvenation requires the population change and, in turn, the population change facilitates the great rejuvenation.
