In Europe's name : Germany and the divided continent by Timothy Garton Ash ( Book )
21 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 1,437 libraries worldwide
"For forty-five years Europe was divided, and at the center of that divided continent lay a divided Germany. Throughout that time West German politicians were trying to reunite their sundered country, even as they performed an intricate diplomatic minuet with their European -- and, particularly, their American -- allies and East Germany's Soviet sponsors." "In this brilliantly nuanced book, one of our most respected authorities on Central Europe tells the story of German reunification. Drawing on sources that range from the files of East Germany's secret police to the personal papers of West German leaders -- and on interviews with such figures as Helmut Kohl, Eduard Shevardnadze, and the imprisoned Erich Honecker -- Garton Ash has produced a panoramic, dramatic, and definitive account of events that are continuing to transform the map of Europe. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.

Facts are subversive : political writing from a decade without a name by Timothy Garton Ash ( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 568 libraries worldwide
"Timothy Garton Ash is well known as an astute and penetrating writer on a dazzling array of subjects, not least through his many contributions to the New York Review of Books. This collection of his essays from the past decade reveals his knack for ferreting out exceptional insights into a troubled world, often on the basis of firsthand experience. Whether he is writing about how "liberalism" has become a dirty word in American political discourse, the problems of Muslim assimilation in Europe, Ukraine's Orange Revolution, Günter Grass's membership in the Waffen-SS, or the angry youth of Iran, Garton Ash combines a gimlet eye for detail with deep knowledge of the history of his chosen subjects. Running through this book is the author's insistence that, whatever some postmodernists might claim, there are indeed facts--and we have both a political and a moral duty to establish them."--Dust jacket.

Free world : why a crisis of the West reveals the opportunity of our time by Timothy Garton Ash ( Book )
13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 248 libraries worldwide
Britain may not be divided physically, but it lives culturally, economically and socially in a constant tension between Europe and America. And it's divided politically between a Right which argues that our place is with America, not Europe, and a Left which claims the opposite. This is today's English civil war. Both sides tell us we must choose between Europe and America. But how can we choose, when Britain has two faces pointing in opposite directions? Garton Ash argues that the beginning of national wisdom is to accept that this is who we are, that Britain faces both ways. What follows is, he says, a liberation - and a challenge. In this stimulating new book, Garton Ash examines how this has happened, and argues that Britain should resist choosing between Europe and America, but embrace a new role in harmony with both, and that instead of destructively bickering as we have for decades, we should be concentrating on grander and more durable aspirations for political freedom.
Freedom for publishing, publishing for freedom : the Central and East European Publishing Project ( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 192 libraries worldwide
"The Oxford-based Central and East European Publishing Project was a remarkable initiative to support embattled Central and East European publishers and journals, and to punch holes through the cultural iron curtain by encouraging translations and a 'common market of the mind' between East and West. The nine years of its existence straddle the largest watershed in European history since 1945, and the Project's history - told here by some of its leading participants - illuminates the nature of the recent changes in Central and Eastern Europe." "In a vivid personal account, Timothy Garton Ash recalls the work of the Project, ranging from smuggling in subsidies to underground journals and samizdat publishers in the pre-1989 period to supporting high-quality translations and East-West workshops in the period after 1989. Also included are an Introduction in which Ralf Dahrendorf, Chairman of the Project, reflects on the importance of both publishing and foundations for a healthy civil society; an annotated catalogue of the Project's work, prepared by Elizabeth Winter; and a detailed and original report by Richard Davy on the state of publishing in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary, with suggestions for further Western help."--BOOK JACKET.
