The giraffe's neck : a novel by Judith Schalansky( Book )

57 editions published between 2011 and 2019 in 13 languages and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adaptation is everything. Inge Lohmark is well aware of that; after all, she's been teaching biology for more than thirty years. But nothing will change the fact that her school is going to be closed in four years: In this dwindling town in the eastern German countryside, there are fewer and fewer children. Inge's husband, who was a cattle inseminator before the reunification, is now breeding ostriches. Their daughter, Claudia, emigrated to the United States years ago and has no intention of having children. Everyone is resisting the course of nature that Inge teaches every day in class. When Inge finds herself experiencing intense feelings for a ninth-grade girl, her biologically determined worldview is shaken. And in increasingly outlandish ways, she tries to save what can no longer be saved"--
An inventory of losses by Judith Schalansky( Book )

43 editions published between 2018 and 2021 in 10 languages and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each disparate object described in this book-a Caspar David Friedrich painting, a species of tiger, a villa in Rome, a Greek love poem, an island in the Pacific-shares a common fate: it no longer exists, except as the dead end of a paper trail. Recalling the works of W.G. Sebald, Bruce Chatwin, and Rebecca Solnit, An Inventory of Losses is a beautiful evocation of twelve specific treasures that have been lost to the world forever, and that, taken as a whole, open mesmerizing new vistas of how to think about extinction and loss. With meticulous research and a vivid awareness of why we should care about these losses, Judith Schalansky, the acclaimed author of Atlas of Remote Islands, lets these objects speak for themselves: she ventriloquizes the tone of other sources, burrows into the language of contemporaneous accounts, and deeply interrogates the very notion of memory"--
Atlas of remote islands : fifty islands I have never set foot on and never will by Judith Schalansky( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are still places on earth that are unknown. Visually stunning and uniquely designed, this wondrous book captures fifty islands that are far away in every sense-from the mainland, from people, from airports, and from holiday brochures. The author used historic events and scientific reports as a springboard for each island, providing information on its distance from the mainland, whether its inhabited, its features, and the stories that have shaped its lore

Atlas der abgelegenen Inseln fünfzig Inseln, auf denen ich nie war und niemals sein werde by Judith Schalansky( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2021 in German and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dass es immer noch Orte gibt, die schwer zu erreichen sind, erscheint uns heute nicht mehr vorstellbar. Judith Schalansky aber hat sie gesammelt: fünfzig entlegene Inseln, die in jeder Hinsicht weit entfernt sind, entfernt vom Festland, von Menschen, von Flughäfen und Reisekatalogen. Aus historischen Begebenheiten und naturwissenschaftlichen Berichten spinnt die Autorin zu jeder Insel eine Prosaminiatur, absurd-abgründige Geschichten, wie sie nur die Wirklichkeit sich auszudenken vermag, wenn sie mit wenigen Quadratkilometern im Nirgendwo auskommen muss. Sie handeln von seltenen Tieren und seltsamen Menschen von gestrandeten Sklaven und einsamen Naturforschern, verirrten Entdeckern und verwirrten Leuchtturmwärtern, meuternden Matrosen und vergessenen Schiffbrüchigen, braven Sträflingen und strafversetzten Beamten, kurzum: von freiwilligen und unfreiwilligen Robinsons. Nicht zuletzt fasziniert dieser außergewöhnliche Atlas durch seine aufwendige und besonders schöne Gestaltung. Kunstvoll illustriert und durchgehend in fünf Sonderfarben gedruckt, zeigt er nach Ozeanen geordnet alle Inseln im jeweils identischen Maßstab. Damit entführt uns Judith Schalansky zu fünfzig entlegenen Orten von Tristan da Cunha bis zum Clipperton-Atoll, von der Weihnachts- bis zur Osterinsel und beweist, dass die abenteuerlichsten Reisen immer noch im Kopf stattfinden: mit dem Finger auf der Landkarte. Ausgezeichnet mit dem 1. Preis der Stiftung Buchkunst als das »Schönste Buch des Jahres 2009«, mit dem »Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland 2011« und mit dem »red dot award: communication design 2011

Animal languages by Eva Meijer( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in German and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Animals use far more elaborate and complex language than we think. They chat, gossip, mourn, rhyme, speak in dialects and make jokes. Whales sing a different series of songs each season, which rhyme and are picked up by other whales in passing, making them 'hits'. Some species of bird have dialects that differ from one region to the next, and the birds that live on the regional boundaries are bilingual. Eva Meijer combines her field of study, philosophy, with her love of animals. That combination of academic interest and personal passion has produced a lucid and inspiring plea to listen more carefully to animals. She presents a history of philosophical thought about animals and language, addressing questions such as: when can you call communication a language? And what exactly is a language, anyway? Descartes decided that animals do not have a soul because they do not have rationality, and the best proof of rationality is the power of speech. Meijer shows that every species of animal speaks in its own way. Animals even have grammar: dolphins in their clicks, cephalopods in the colour patterns of their skin, and whales in the structure of their songs. There are some from whom humans could learn lessons about the efficient use of language: prairie dogs alert each other by a single call to the height and proximity of a potential interloper, even including the colour of their clothes and what they are carrying. This book makes clear that animals speak, not just by instinct but for social, emotional and creative reasons. Along with ideas from Aristotle, Descartes and Wittgenstein, Meijer takes Heidegger's beliefs about language as her guide: language gives us insight into the world around us and helps us to shape it. This notion is central to Animal Languages. Studying the languages of animals gives us a starting point for new relationships with them. Meijer argues that we should enter into conversation with animals, rather than making them the object of study"--

Blau steht Dir nicht Matrosenroman by Judith Schalansky( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2019 in German and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

»Blau steht dir nicht«, sagt die Großmutter, und auch der Großvater rät vom Matrosinnenberuf ab. Dabei ist es Jennys größter Traum: »Sie sah sich auf einem Schiff, umringt von singenden Matrosen. Sie hatte ihren blauen Anzug an, bis die Matrosen ihr ein blaues Hemd überzogen, wie sie es trugen. Es war viel zu groß, aber alle betonten, wie gut es ihr stehen würde.« Eine Kindheit am Meer. Eine Sehnsucht nach Freiheit. In ihrem eindrücklichen Debüt erzählt Judith Schalansky vom Aufwachsen an der Ostseeküste der DDR, von unbändigem Freiheitsdrang und dem Drang, die ganze Welt zu bereisen

The peregrine by J. A Baker( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From fall to spring, J. A. Baker set out to track the daily comings and goings of a pair of peregrine falcons across the flat fen lands of eastern England. He followed the birds obsessively, observing them in the air and on the ground, in pursuit of their prey, making a kill, eating, and at rest, activities he describes with an extraordinary fusion of precision and poetry. And as he continued his mysterious private quest, his sense of human self slowly dissolved, to be replaced with the alien and implacable consciousness of a hawk."--BOOK JACKET

Korallen ein Portrait by Jutta Person( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in German and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In ihrem schillernden Tierportrait taucht Jutta Person tief in die Natur- und Kulturgeschichte dieser Lebewesen ein, deren Status zwischen Stein, Pflanze oder Tier lange Zeit ungeklärt war. Nicht umsonst schienen Korallen rätselhafte Wechselwesen zu sein, die auf Unterwasserwiesen wuchsen oder als mineralische Wunder der Natur die höfischen Wunderkammern bevölkerten. Jutta Person erzählt von dem Auftritt der Korallen in Literatur und Kunst, zeigt, wie sie als knöchernes Amulett bei der Abwehr des Bösen Blicks halfen, und reist mit uns in die Andamanensee und ans Rote Meer. Eine Expedition in psychedelische Welten - und in die Geschichte und Gegenwart faszinierender Meeresbewohner, die wir angesichts von Korallenbleiche und Riffsterben umso dringender schützen sollten
