The origin and goal of history by Karl Jaspers( Book )

9 editions published between 1953 and 2010 in English and German and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in English in 1953, this important book from eminent philosopher Karl Jaspers deals with the philosophy of the history of mankind. More specifically, its avowed aim is to assist in heightening our awareness of the present by placing it within the framework of the long obscurity of prehistory and the boundless realm of possibilities which lie within the undecided future. This analysis is split into three parts: World history; the present and the future; and the meaning of history
The mission; a novel by Hans Habe( Book )

5 editions published in 1966 in German and English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In July 1938, less than five months after Hitler's rape of Austria, Franklin D. Roosevelt convened the International Conference on Refugees, at Evian-les-Bains, a small French spa. The official purpose of the conference was to deal with the growing number of Jewish refugees fleeing Europe. Thirty-two nations attended the conference, as well as observers from the Vatican, Jewish organizations in the United States, France and Britain, and Zionist groups from Palestine. The questions facing the delegates at Evian were hard ones, both political and moral. There were half a million German and Austrian Jews desperate for refuge. In the rest of Europe, six million apprehensive Jews were watching Hitler's progress. Germany boycotted the conference, but secretly arranged to send an unofficial representative: Heinrich von Benda, a famous Austrian Jewish physician, released from prison camp specifically to carry Hitler's secret proposal to the conference. Under certain conditions, Hitler would allow the Jews of Austria and Germany to emigrate. The conditions were horrifyingly simple. The Third Reich would sell its Jews--to the nations of the world--for $250 a head, $1,000 a family. Von Benda was to persuade the delegates at Evian to deliver this ransom. A physician to many of the crowned heads of Europe--now under suspicion by many of the very Jews he presumed to speak for--von Benda was soon known to most of the conferees as an ambassador without portfolio. His tragic, aging figure became a familiar one as he sought out delegate after delegate to plead his cause. Ignoring his failing health and all opportunities to provide for his own safety and that of his family, he summoned every reserve of eloquence and energy to convince the assembled diplomats of the brutal urgency of his mission before it was too late. This story is a fictionalization of that crucial gathering, an event carefully buried in the pages of history--because it might have prevented the slaughter of millions.--From publisher description
Poems of solitude by Jerome Chʼên( Book )

18 editions published between 1960 and 1970 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The six Chinese poets who are represented in this anthology are all medieval and date from the seven hundred years following the beginning of the Three Kingdoms in 220 A.D. They are not therefore contemporaries, nor do they form a school. They share a mood, subtle and infinitely variable, that gives them each a place in this collection. We are inclined to forget that the Chinese poet is always a civil servant, a diplomat, or a public figure. With the frequent political changes that have been China's birthright, many of her finest artists found themselves exiles and rebels. Juan Chi, the third-century poet, preserved his life with a studied eccentricity and almost continual drunkenness. Li Yü, a monarch-poet of the tenth century, had two separate political careers, the second ending in his being ordered to take poison. Pao Chao was killed in a rebellion, while Wang Wei and P'e Ti, the joint authors of Forty Poems of the River Wang sought refuge in obscurity. But lest this should lead the reader to expect poetry of violence and sudden death, it must be added that these five and the sixth and greatest, Li Ho "the ghost," who died at the age of twenty-six, but is one of the poetic glories of the amazing cultural heyday of T'ang, all are poets of peace. They found comfort not in indifference, but in the serenity of nature, in birds and rivers. They are all poets of landscape, and human beings appear only fleetingly. Theirs is a rich solitude, and much of its richness has been transmuted to us in this book. The combination of a Chinese scholar and a poet has preserved what is so often lost in translation in authenticity and rhythm.. - Jacket flap
The tales of Hoffmann by E. T. A Hoffmann( Book )

7 editions published between 1962 and 1968 in English and German and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This selection of Hoffmann's finest short stories vividly demonstrates his intense imagination and preoccupation with the supernatural, placing him at the forefront of both surrealism and the modern horror genre. Suspense dominates tales such as Mademoiselle de Scudery , in which an apprentice goldsmith and a female novelist find themselves caught up in a series of jewel thefts and murders. In the sinister Sandman , a young man's sanity is tormented by fears about a mysterious chemist, while in The Choosing of a Bride a greedy father preys on the weaknesses of his daughter's suitors. Master of the bizarre, Hoffman creates a sinister and unsettling world combining love and madness, black humour and bewildering illusion"--Publisher's description

This is collection of the stories written by a distinguished German author who died in 1973. Reading these stories entails abandoning the terms of one's own comfort. The author's relentless vision demands that readers allows themselves to be hypnotised, taken over by her repetitive cadences and burning images of grief and loss. And yet, in the beauty of her images there is a tremendous affirmation of the world
