Sahel : the end of the road by Sebastião Salgado( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in Spanish and English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1984 Sebastiao Salgado began what would be a fifteen-month project of photographing the drought-stricken Sahel region of Africa in the countries of Chad, Ethiopia, Mali, and the Sudan, where approximately one million people died from extreme malnutrition and related causes. Working with the humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders, Salgado documented the enormous suffering and the great dignity of the refugees. This early work became a template for his future photographic projects about other afflicted people around the world. Since then, Salgado has again and again sought to give visual voice to those millions of human beings who, because of military conflict, poverty, famine, overpopulation, pestilence, environmental degradation, and other forms of catastrophe, teeter on the edge of survival. With supporting narratives by Orville Schell, Fred Ritchin, and Eduardo Galeano, this first U.S. edition brings some of Salgado's earliest and most important work to an American audience for the first time. Twenty years after the photographs were taken, Sahel: The End of the Road is still relevant."--Jacket

The impact of war on children : a review of progress since the 1996 United Nations report on the impact of armed conflict on children by Graça Machel( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The impact of armed conflict on children is devastating and total. War wounds children's bodies and destroys their spirit. Using examples from around the world, this book analyses the special vulnerabilities of children when families and communities are torn apart, schools are destroyed and stability shattered. Children are routinely forced into active combat, sexually exploited and abandoned to malnutrition, starvation and disease. This book demonstrates how war's legacy of horror continues to affect children long after hostilities cease, especially through landmines and unexploded ordnance, the proliferation of small arms, the instability of refugee existence and the spread of HIV/AIDS. The toll demands an urgent response to protect children everywhere."--Jacket

Anderes Amerika by Sebastião Salgado( Book )

15 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1985 erschien in Paris der erste Band mit Fotografien von Sebastiao Salgado, der durch seinen spektakulären Band "Genesis" und, durch den Film von Wim Wenders über ihn im letzten Jahr Aufsehen erregte. Der Band gewann zahlreiche Fotopreise und wurde zu einer der bedeutendsten Fotobuchpublikationen der achtziger Jahre. Salgado reise für diesen Band zurück in das, was auch nach langen Jahren des Exils in Frankreich immer noch seine Heimat war, nach der er sich sehr sehnte: nach Südamerika. Er bereiste das Land sieben Jahre und fotografierte vor allem die Nachfahren der ursprünglichen Einwohner des Landes, die zumeist rechtlos und arm in den einfachen ländlichen Gebieten wohnen. Die Bilder ihres beschwerlichen Lebens, aber auch ihres Glaubens und des Mystizismus', der das Land beherrscht, fängt Salgado in meisterhaft verdichteten Kompostitionen ein. Der Band war Jahrzehnte lang nicht lieferbar und erscheint nun erstmals auf Deutsch mit einem neuen Vorwort des Verlegers Claude Nori zum Entstehen sowie den damals entstandenen Texten von Salgado selbst.
