Holy madness : romantics, patriots, and revolutionaries, 1776-1871 by Adam Zamoyski( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Holy Madness provides not only a fluid history of the tumultuous years that embraced the American and French revolutions, the Irish Rebellion, the Polish uprisings, the liberation of South America, and the Italian Risorgimento, it also probes the spiritual and emotional forces responsible for the founding events of the modern world. Zamoyski also captures the passionate revolutionary figures Lafayette, Napoleon, Benjamin franklin, Bolivar, Rousseau, and countless others who were caught up in the fervor of the nationalist crusade. As the cult of the nation rises again around the world, Holy Madness is a history that takes on chilling relevance in today's society."--Jacket

Poland : a history by Adam Zamoyski( Book )

27 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Polish and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No nation's history has been so distorted as that of Poland. In 1797 Russia, Prussia and Austria divided the country up among themselves, rewriting history to give the impression that Poland had never been a fully sovereign state, only a backwater that needed civilising. In fact the country they had wiped off the map had been one of the largest and most richly varied in Europe, embracing a wide variety of cultural and religious traditions, accommodated within one of the boldest constitutional experiments ever attempted. Its destruction initiated a series of struggles that culminated in the two world wars and the Cold War.Today, after the turmoil of the past two centuries, Poland has been restored to its rightful place as one of the most homogeneous and vigorous nations of Europe

Phantom terror : political paranoia and the creation of the modern state 1789-1848 by Adam Zamoyski( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French Revolution and the blood-curdling violence it engendered terrified the ruling and propertied classes of Europe. Unable to grasp how such horrors could have come about, many concluded that it was the result of a devilish conspiracy hatched by Freemasons inspired by the ideas of the Enlightenment with the aim of overthrowing the entire social order, along with the legal and religious principles it stood on. Others traced it back to the Reformation or the Knights Templar and ascribed even more sinister aims to it. Faced by this apparently occult threat, they resorted to repression on an unprecedented scale, expanding police and spy networks in the process. This compelling history, occasionally chilling and often hilarious, tells how the modern state evolved through the expansion of its organs of control, and holds urgent lessons for today

Chopin : der Poet am Piano by Adam Zamoyski( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zu Chopins 200. Geburtstag Frédéric Chopin ist nicht nur der berühmteste Komponist und Pianist der Romantik, er gilt auch als Inbegriff des romantischen Künstlers. In seiner exzellent geschriebenen Biografie macht Adam Zamoyski den Leser mit dem Menschen Chopin und seinem Leben bekannt: das kurze, von Krankheit geprägte Dasein, seine Kindheit, in der er in den polnischen Adelssalons auftrat, seine schillernde Karriere als Klaviervirtuose, -lehrer und innovativer Komponist in Paris, seine fast 10-jährige Liebesbeziehung zu der exaltierten Schriftstellerin George Sand. Dabei gelingt es dem Autor meisterhaft, die charakterliche Entwicklung Chopins nachzuzeichnen und ein farbiges Gesellschaftsbild des frühen 19. Jahrhunderts zu entwerfen. Und schliesslich entkräftet Zamoyski auf verblüffende Weise den Mythos vom romantischsten aller Künstler. Eine brillant geschriebene Biografie des berühmtesten Klaviervirtuosen und Komponisten der Romantik
Phantome des Terrors : die Angst vor der Revolution und die Unterdrückung der Freiheit 1789-1848 by Adam Zamoyski( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Für die Herrschenden und Besitzenden waren die Jahre nach der Französischen Revolution und Napoleon ein Zeitalter höchster Besorgnis. Die gekrönten Häupter lebten in der permanenten Furcht vor erneuten Rebellionen und waren überzeugt davon, dass ihre Macht auf dem Spiel stand. So entstand eine Politik, die mit einem immer aufwendigeren System von Bespitzelung, Zensur und Repression gegen reale und imaginäre Feinde vorging. Doch das Resultat war anders, als es sich die Mächtigen erhofft hatten. Der Polizeistaat und eine verfehlte Politik brachten - damals wie heute - genau das hervor, was sie verhindern wollten
