The beauty and the sorrow : an intimate history of the First World War by Peter Englund( Book )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Englund examines the history of World War I through the experiences of the average man and woman-- not only the tragedy and horror but also the absurdity and even, at times, the beauty. In a brilliant mosaic of perspectives that moves between the home front and the front lines, he reconstructs the feelings, impressions, experiences, and shifting spirits of twenty particular people, allowing them to speak not only for themselves but also for all those who were in some way shaped by the war, but whose voices have been forgotten, rejected, or simply remained unheard

Den oövervinnerlige begynder i 1648 da trediveårskrigen er slut. Bogen er dels en skildring af Sveriges historie i perioden 1648 - 1660 dels et biografisk portræt af Karl X Gustav. I bogen beskrives de svenske krige i Nordøsteuropa, der var meget ødelæggende og det svenske felttog mod Danmark 1657 - 1660. Karl X Gustav betragtes som den mest anonyme af stormagtstidens konger men også som et destruktivt geni

Tystnadens historia och andra essäer by Peter Englund( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I Stillhetens historie og andre essays hengir Englund seg helt til den lille historien. Den stille gang og de langsomme skiftene kan ofte etterlate større avtrykk i våre liv enn den store historiens dramatikk. Mye handler om gjenstander og vaner som har blitt selvfølgeligheter i vår hverdag, slikt som vi ikke reflekterer over men som like fullt har en bakgrunn i det fortiden. Til dette hører bindersen, skrujernet, brillene, tannbørsten, utstillingsvinduet, og hamburgerens historie. Motenes endringer og ulike tiders skjønnhetsideal inngår i kroppens historie. Den spanske tyrefektningskulturen bringer tanker rundt dødens historie. Og verdens første finansboble handler om opphissede spekulasjoner i tulipanløker. Det er underholdende og tankevekkende lesning i de mest ulike emner som Englund byr på

5 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in Swedish and Norwegian and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dronning Kristina er kjent som en av historiens mest omstridte kvinner og som en skikkelse full av motsigelser. I denne biografien tegner Peter Englund et bilde av det levende mennesket Kristina, midt i en 1600-talls verden preget av maktkamp, blomstrende vitenskap, rå vold, Descartes og Moliére. Kristina var et maktmenneske, men ga avkall på Nord-Europas mektigste trone. Hun opptrådte som fredsmegler, men drømte også om å lede sine tropper i strid og bli regent i Polen. Hun gjorde opprør mot autoriteter, spesielt kirken. Peter Englund er en av Sveriges fremste historikere og forfatter av en rekke populærhistoriske bøker
