The old world and the new 1492-1650 by J. H Elliott( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impact of Europe on the newly-discovered world of America has long been a subject of historical fascination. But the impact of that discovery and conquest for the European conquering powers has traditionally received less attention. In this pioneering book J.H. Elliott set out to show how traditional European assumptions about geography, theology, history and the nature of man were challenged by the encounter with new lands and people; trading relationships around the world were affected by an influx of gold and silver imports from America; while politically, the sources of power were no longer confined to European territory

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

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 voyages of an Englishman carry him to such strange places as Lilliput, where people are six inches tall; Brobdingnag, a land of giants; and a country ruled by horses.

Then a family crisis occurs, and Jerry finds he must face his disengagement in his relationships: with his deceased wife, the circumstances of whose death he has never fully accepted; with his former girlfriend, whom he still longs for; with his daughter, who refuses to address the disease that threatens her life; with his son, who is in danger of losing the family business; and with his father, whom he has placed in a nursing home."--Jacket
