Beijing English Major Seeks Technical Lit. I just received this request from an Internet acquaintance near Beijing China, working towards his Masters degree in English. I shall begin searching when time becomes available, but I thought some of you might like to see what is sought. Apparently, in many countries, is quite difficult for students of English to find such books as these. I had suggested last year that some program be established, perhaps with the aid of prosperous, powerful and influential people in business and government, to make such texts available to such students in such countries, on-line. I think much good might result from such a program. 1. Jean-François Lyotard. "After the Sublime: The State of Aesthetics."
