  《世界》内容简介

  英国国宝级作家、历史学家简·莫里斯通过自己从20世纪50年代到20世纪初的全球历程,用半个世纪的行走,书写了一篇篇令人心醉神迷的文化随笔。五十年的风云变幻,莫里斯见证了一个又一个重要的历史时刻,从人类首次登顶珠峰,到艾希曼审判和柏林墙的倒塌,再到香港的回归。五十年的生命历程,莫里斯从“他”到“她”,从新闻记者到文学作家,在双重身份变换间,她始终敏感地注视着这个世界。旅途虽匆匆一过,她却用历史学家的目光透过当下联系到过去,想象到未来。纷扰不断的中东、混乱的加勒比、冷战中的苏联、分裂的南非、逐渐褪去帝国光环的英国、流动的欧洲……在历史的变革中,她捕捉到世界剧变的20世纪下半叶中那些决定性的细节。

A brief introduction to the World

Jane Morris, a British national treasure writer and historian, has written a fascinating cultural essay through her global journey from the 1950s to the early 20th century. In five decades of change, Morris has witnessed one important moment after another in history, from the first summit of Mount Everest, to the Eichmann trial and the fall of the Berlin Wall, to the return of Hong Kong. Fifty years of life course, Morris from "he" to "she", from a journalist to a literary writer, in the dual identity change, she has always been sensitive to watch the world. Though the journey passes quickly, she uses the eyes of a historian to connect the past through the present and imagine the future. A troubled Middle East, a chaotic Caribbean, a Cold War Soviet Union, a divided South Africa, a fading British empire, a fluid Europe... In the midst of historical change, she captures the decisive details of the second half of the 20th century as the world changed dramatically.

About the author

Jan Morris (1926-2020), born James Morris, was an English writer, historian, and travel writer. He served in the British Army during World War II and was stationed in Trieste. In the 1950s, he worked as a reporter for The Times and then the Guardian, travelling around the world to cover major historical events, including the first summit of Mount Everest in 1953, the Suez crisis in 1956 and the Eichmann trial in 1961. For outstanding overseas reporting, he was awarded the George Polk Award for Journalism in 1960.

From the mid-60s, he worked as a freelance writer, walked the world, and began his transition from male to female. He finally underwent sex reassignment surgery in 1972 and changed his name from "James" to "Jane."

In a career that spanned more than half a century, she published more than 40 works, including historical works on the rise and fall of the British Empire, fiction novels, memoirs, and numerous works of travel literature and essays. With her keen insight and extensive historical literacy, the history and reality of the Middle East, the Far East, Europe, the Americas, Africa, Australia and other places, the world and the human heart are condensed into eternal moments in her pen.

For her outstanding contribution to travel writing, she was awarded the Thomas Cook Prize for Travel Literature in 2004 and the Edward Stanford Award for Outstanding Contribution to Travel Writing in 2018. She was awarded the Golden Pen Award for Lifetime Literary Achievement by English Pen in 2005, and in January 2008, was ranked 15th on The Times' list of the "Top 50 British Writers since 1945".

She died at her home in Wales on November 20, 2020 at the age of 94.
