As Financial Advisor to China, Arthur N. Young had an intimate insight as an on-the-spot observer of events during the critical 18 years leading to the fall of the Nationalists and the Communist takeover. Along with Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, Dr. Young worked closely with the highest-ranking officials of the National Government in carrying out monetary and fiscal reforms prior to World War II, and stayed through the war to aid with problems of war finance, including procurement of American aid. As the Pacific Rim gains increasing international prominence, this book will prove to be of particular importance to students, scholars, business and political leaders with an interest in Asian affairs.

The queens of Denmark have included a number of distinctive personalities, queens whose characters and whose fates have become significant features of Danish history. Because historical research has virtually ignored these women, the Koldinghus Museum has chosen to focus attention on Danish queens from the Viking period up to the Renaissance. With numerous illustrative artifacts, this exhibition emphasizes contemporary historical perceptions and the public presentation of these queens in the light of subsequent National Romantic attitudes. Includes a complete list of queens from the beginning of 900 until today and their lifespans in addition to a list of who they were married to and when.
