New Europe by Michael Palin( Recording )

Where there's a will by John Mortimer( Recording )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is perhaps a natural instinct to put one's house in order and decide exactly what to pass on to the next generation. But here the trouble begins: does anyone really want, or deserve, all your worldly goods? Aren't there bequests of a more general nature that might prove to be of greater value to your friends and relatives? Pondering this question, John Mortimer reflects on the inheritance he received and discusses the knowledge he would like to pass on: the pleasures of drink, the justification for the odd lie, the absolute necessity of causing offence on occasion, and a vision of god as The Grand Perhaps. Drawing on his life as a barrister and writer, John Mortimer offers an instructive, often comic, account of what a decent life might be
The road to Wigan Pier by George Orwell( Recording )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When Orwell went to the north of England in the thirties to find out how industrial workers lived, he not only observed but shared in their experience. He stayed in cramped, dreary lodgings and subsisted on the scant, cheerless diet of the poor. He went down into the coal mines and walked crouching, as the miners did, through a one- to three-mile passage too low to stand up in. He watched the back-breaking, dangerous labor of men whose net pay then averaged $575 a year. And he knew the unemployed, those who had been out of work for so long they had sunk beyond despair into an inhuman apathy. In his searing yet beautiful account of life on the bottom rung, Orwell asks himself why socialism, which alone, he felt, could conserve human values from the ravages of industrialism, had so little appeal. His answer was a harsh critique of the socialism and socialists of his time."--Publisher's web site
Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell( Recording )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1936, George Orwell went to Spain to report on the civil war and instead joined the P.O.U.M. militia to fight against the Fascists. In this account of his experience, he describes both the bleak and the comic aspects of trench warfare on the Aragon front, the Barcelona uprising in May 1937, his nearly fatal wounding just two weeks later, and his escape from Barcelona into France after the P.O.U.M. was suppressed. As important as the story of the war itself is Orwell's analysis of why the Communist Party sabotaged the workers' revolution and branded the P.O.U.M. as Trotskyist, which provides an essential key to understanding the outcome of the war and an ironic sidelight on international Communism. It was during this period in Spain that Orwell learned for himself the nature of totalitarianism in practice, an education that laid the groundwork for his books Animal farm and 1984

It looked like a small boat, it had seats, it had these little colored lights--. And when Geoff suggested they climb aboard, a landslide was the least of their problems."
