In flagrante by Christopher Killip( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris Killip's 'In Flagrante' is often cited as the most important photographic book on England in the 1980s. Published in 1988, this work portrays the steady decline of communities in Northern England - former manufacturing powerhouses that were gradually compromised by the policies of Margaret Thatcher and her predecessors from the mid-1970s onward. Killip's black-and-white photographs provide an unflinching look at these disenfranchised northern towns and the poverty visited upon them by deindustrialization

Disgrace by J. M Coetzee( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Lurie, middle-aged and twice divorced, is a scholar fallen into disgrace. After years teaching Romantic poetry at the Technical University of Cape Town, he has an impulsive affair with a student. The affair sours; he is denounced and summoned before a committee of inquiry - willing to admit his guilt, but refusing to yield to pressure to repent publicly, he resigns and retreats to an isolated smallholding owned by his daughter Lucy." "For a time, his daughter's influence and the natural rhythms of the farm promise to harmonise his discordant life. He helps with the dogs in the kennels, takes produce to market, and assists with treating injured animals at a nearby refuge." "But the balance of power in the country is shifting. He and Lucy become victims of a savage and disturbing attack which brings into relief all the faultlines in their relationship."--Jacket

In South Africa, whose civil administration is collapsing under the pressure of years of civil strife, an obscure young gardener named Michael K decides to take his mother on a long march away from the guns towards a new life in the abandoned countryside. Everywhere he goes however, the war follows him. Tracked down and locked up as a collaborator with the rural guerrillas, he embarks on a fast that angers, baffles, and finally awes his captors. The story of Michael K is the story of a man caught up in a war beyond his understanding, but determined to live his life, however minimally, on his own terms
Translated accounts : a novel by James Kelman( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in an unnamed territory that appears to be under military rule. It is narrated in the first person, but the narrators remain anonymous, as do most of the other characters. The language used is atypically English, but akin to the translations that might appear in overseas "foreign offices." Perhaps someone transcribed firsthand accounts of certain incidents, events, and states of mind, as narrated by participants in the struggle, and then passed on the transcription for translation; or perhaps the accounts were simply translated firsthand into English and edited later." -- Jacket
