The confidence man by Herman Melville( Book )

In Herman Melville's The Confidence-Man: His Masquerade, a group of steamboat passengers paddle to New Orleans on April Fool's Day. As the Mississippi carries them down river, everyone is selling something: quack remedies; stock in a mining company about to fail; a fraudulent charity for widows and orphans. Set on the eve of the Civil War, as the frontier rapidly expands and Native Americans are driven to near-extinction, Melville's narrative poses the question: "In which institution does one place one's faith'" A satire on the works of Manifest Destiny, The Confidence-Man was Herman Melville's last novel before he retired from writing.

1 edition published in 1994 in German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this remarkable, evocative narrative, the life of Auschwitz's Angel of Death is told in counterpoint to the lives of the surviving twins, who are themselves now inching into middle or old age. In stories that abound with ambiguity, anger, and redemptive hope, we encounter them first as children beginning their descent into Auschwitz by witnessing their entire families being led away to be killed. Later, we see the twins grateful for the soup and bread Mengele procured for them and reassured by his moments of seemingly genuine affection, yet terrified, always, by what he forced them to endure

Der silberne Schwan : Roman by John Banville( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dublin, 50er-Jahre. Als Billy Hunt, ein Freund aus Collegetagen, sich bei Quirke meldet, weil sich seine junge, attraktive Frau Deirdre angeblich das Leben genommen hat, kann Quirke den Ärger schon von Weitem riechen. Quirke, Pathologe und ehemaliger Trinker, ist jedoch kein Mann, der dem Ärger gerne aus dem Weg geht, und so ermittelt er auf eigene Faust. Deirdre, Besitzerin des Schönheitssalons >>Der silberne Schwan>>, ist ermordet worden, und in Betracht kommen vor allem ihr Geliebter und Partner Leslie White, ein undurchsichtiger ehemaliger Friseur, der es nach Deirdres Tod zu allem Überfluss auch noch auf Quirkes Tochter abgesehen hat, sowie der seltsame Geistheiler Dr. Kreutz, den eigentlich nur Frauen aufsuchen. Angetrieben von der eigenen Einsamkeit, dem schlechten Verhältnis zu seiner Tochter und von einer unstillbaren Neugier wird Quirke in Dublins zwielichtige Welt von sexuellen Obsessionen, Prüderie, Erpressung und Mord hineingezogen, in der selbst der Respekt einflössende Inspektor Hackett ihm kaum Unterstützung bieten kann.

The fable of the bees: or, Private vices, publick benefits by Bernard Mandeville( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although never censored, Bernard Mandeville's anonymously published The Fable of the Bees; or Private Vices, Public Benefits came to be regarded soon after its publication in 1723 as the Enlightenment's epitome of immorality. As a naturalistic account of the mechanisms that condition human desire and of the unintended stabilizing social consequences of self-interested action, it has since been recognized as one the eighteenth century's most significant works of social theory." "More sharply focused on Mandeville's social theory than any previous collection of his writings, this abridged and modernized edition includes the most pertinent sections of The Fable, a selection from Mandeville's An Enquiry into the Origin of Honor, and essential background reading from two of Mandeville's most important sources: Pierre Bayle and the Jansenist Pierre Nicole. E.J. Hundert's Introduction places Mandeville in a number of central eighteenth-century debates - particularly that of the nature and morality of commercial modernity - and underscores the degree to which Mandeville's reconception of egoism as a positive social force stood as a central problem, not only for his immediate English contemporaries, but for such philosophers as Hume, Rousseau, and Kant."--Jacket
