One of us : the story of Anders Breivik and the massacre in Norway by Åsne Seierstad( Book )

54 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On July 22, 2011, Anders Behring Breivik detonated a bomb outside the Norwegian prime minister's office in central Oslo, killing eight people. He then proceeded to a youth camp on the wooded island of Utøya, where he killed sixty-nine more, most of them teenage members of the country's governing Labour Party. In [this book], the journalist Åsne Seierstad tells the story of this terrible day and its reverberations. How did Breivik, a gifted child from an affluent neighborhood in Oslo, become Europe's most reviled terrorist? How did he accomplish an astonishing one-man murder spree? And how did a famously peaceful and prosperous country cope with the slaughter of so many of its young?"--Dust jacket flap
Two sisters : a father, his daughters, and their journey into the Syrian jihad by Åsne Seierstad( Book )

22 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The riveting story of two sisters' journey to the Islamic State and the father who tries to bring them home. Asne Seierstad puts the problem of radicalization into painfully human terms, using instant messages and other primary sources to reconstruct a family's crisis from the inside. Eventually, she takes us into the hellscape of the Syrian civil war, as Sadiq risks his life in pursuit of his daughters, refusing to let them disappear into the maelstrom. This is a relentless thriller and a feat of reporting with profound lessons about belief, extremism, and the meaning of devotion
The bookseller of Kabul by Åsne Seierstad( Book )

44 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two weeks after September 11th, award-winning journalist Åsne Seierstad went to Afghanistan to report on the conflict there. In the following spring she returned to live with an Afghan family for several months. For more than twenty years Sultan Khan defied the authorities - be they communist or Taliban - to supply books to the people of Kabul. He was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned by the communists and watched illiterate Taliban soldiers burn piles of his books in the street. He even resorted to hiding most of his stock in attics all over Kabul. But while Khan is passionate in his love of books and hatred of censorship, he is also a committed Muslim with strict views on family life. As an outsider, Seierstad is able to move between the private world of the women - including Khan's two wives - and the more public lives of the men. And so we learn of proposals and marriages, suppression and abuse of power, crime and punishment. The result is a gripping and moving portrait of a family, and a clear-eyed assessment of a country struggling to free itself from history." -- Provided by publisher

Quando l'autrice, giovane giornalista norvegese, entra a Kabul al seguito delle truppe alleate, una delle prime persone che incontra è Sultan Khan, il libraio. Con lui, nella sua bottega, inizia a parlare di letteratura, di cultura, della situazione del Paese, ma anche della sua famiglia, talmente rappresentativa del mondo afgano che Åsne pensa di poterla raccontare in un libro. Così, per tutta la primavera successiva alla caduta dei Talebani, viene accolta a casa Khan e diventa la figlia bionda del libraio di Kabul. È testimone di amori proibiti, di matrimoni combinati, di reati e punizioni, di ribellioni giovanili, e della severità con la quale la società islamica detta ancor oggi i modi in cui ciascuno deve vivere la propria vita

Zwei Schwestern : im Bann des Dschihad by Åsne Seierstad( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Schwestern Ayan, 19, und Leila 16, Norwegerinnen somalischer Herkunft, beschließen eines Tages, nach Syrien zu reisen und in den Dschihad zu ziehen. Das Umfeld der Schwestern ist ratlos, für die Eltern bricht eine Welt zusammen - der Vater macht sich auf nach Syrien, um seine Töchter zu finden und zurückzuholen. Die Frage, die alle umtreibt, ist: Wie haben sich die beiden Schwestern, die keineswegs streng religiös erzogen wurden und gut integriert schienen, radikalisiert? Åsne Seierstad dokumentiert die Geschichte von Ayan und Leila und ihrer Familie. Sie zeichnet den Weg der Schwestern in den Dschihad nach und schildert den Kampf der Familie nach dem Verschwinden der beiden. Seierstad liefert eine vielschichtige Erzählung über die norwegische Migrationsgesellschaft, die Mechanismen der Radikalisierung junger Menschen und die Absurditäten des von den Schwestern praktizierten religiösen Fanatismus im Spannungsfeld zwischen absoluter moralischer Rigorosität und alterstypischen Interessen und Hoffnungen

With their backs to the world : portraits from Serbia by Åsne Seierstad( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Serberne har stått i sentrum for det siste tiårets brutale krigføring på Balkan. I vestlige medier har de ofte blitt fremstilt som bødler, mens de ser på seg selv som ofre, enten for Milosevic' politikk eller for vestens bombing og sanksjoner. I denne boken er det ikke politikk, men serbernes tanker om livet, forfatteren har lett etter. Hva foregår inne i hodene på dem som lever i denne "paria-staten"? Hvem er de? Hva tenker de på? Boken viser mangfoldet blant menneskene i Serbia - fra nasjonalister og svartebørsforhandlere til prester og rockestjerner. Det tegnes et mangefasettert bilde av landet og nasjonen slik forholdene er i dag, gjennom flere illustrerte portretter av mennesker som representerer ulike sider av Serbia. Felles for dem alle er at de strever med å finne en plass i et land som stadig blir mer isolert, og der folk finner stadig færre faste holdepunkter og noe å tro på. Illustrert med fotografier i svart/hvitt. Åsne Seierstad er journalist og dekket bl.a. krigføringen i Kosovo i 1999 for Dagsrevyen
