Most widely held works by Matthias Fienbork
Ill fares the land by Tony Judt( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in German and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "Ill Fares The Land," Tony Judt, one of our leading historians and thinkers, reveals how we have arrived at our present dangerously confused moment and offers the language we need to address our common needs, rejecting the nihilistic individualism of the far right and the debunked socialism of the past. To find a way forward, Judt argues that we must look to our not so distant past and to social democracy in action: to re-enshrining fairness over mere efficiency

The memory chalet by Tony Judt( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in German and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of short essays that had a breathtaking reception when they appeared, a few at a time, in the New York Review of Books. The pieces were remarkable both for their content and their method of composition: isolated at night in the prison of his paralysis, Judt would sort through his memories, arranging them, to better remember them, in the "rooms" of a Swiss chalet he recalled from an idyllic childhood visit, before dictating them in the morning to be published. The essays are at times political but always personal, calling up memories of food, youth, sex, education, train travel, and other subjects with a clarity and intensity born of both his historian's skills of observation and judgment and the heightened awareness of time's passage imposed by his undeniable mortality. Collected now in The Memory Chalet, these reflections make up a memoir that evokes, with clear-eyed passion, the life of the mind, as well as the body. --Tom Nissley

For ten years Geordie Greig was among a very small group of friends who regularly met Lucian Freud for breakfast at Clarke's restaurant on Kensington Church Street. Over tea and the morning papers, Freud would recount stories of his past and discuss art. It was, in effect, Freud's private salon
The road to Oxiana by Robert Byron( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1933 Robert Byron began a journey through the Middle East via Beirut, Jerusalem, Baghdad, and Teheran to Oxiana--the country of the Oxus, the ancient name for the river Amu Darya which forms part of the border between Afghanistan and the Soviet Union. The Road to Oxiana offers not only a wonderful record of his adventures, but also a rare account of the architectural treasures of a region now inaccessible to most Western travelers

Orient express by John Dos Passos( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1921 reiste der später weltberühmte Autor John Dos Passos durch den Orient, schon damals eine hochexplosive Gegend, und hielt seine Eindrücke in einem Tagebuch fest. Diese abenteuerliche Reise führte den damals 25-Jährigen von der Türkei über Georgien, Armenien, den Iran und den Irak bis nach Syrien. Sein packender Bericht liest sich wie eine Mischung aus Abenteuerroman und der hellsichtigen Analyse eines dramatischen Umbruchs, der bis heute fortwirkt. Geschrieben in knapper Präzision, mit ansteckender Neugier und Beobachtungsgabe, ist das Werk, mit dem Dos Passos dabei war, zu einem der wichtigsten Schriftsteller der amerikanischen Moderne zu werden, jetzt erstmals auf Deutsch zu entdecken

5 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in German and Undetermined and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teaching Plato in Palestine : philosophy in a divided world by Carlos Fraenkel( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was halten palästinensische Studenten von Platon? Was sagt die griechische Philosophie Bewohnern brasilianischer Slums oder jungen Muslimen in Indonesien. Carlos Fraenkel ist an Brennpunkte politischer, religiöser und sozialer Konflikte gereist, um dort Grundsatzfragen zu diskutieren: Was heisst Gerechtigkeit? Gibt es eine Rechtfertigung für Gewalt? Steht über dem menschlichen ein göttliches Recht? Die Philosophie kann die Gegensätze zwischen Religionen und Kulturen nicht aufheben. Aber sie zeigt uns, wie wir Positionen begründen und Argumente austauschen können - was in einer Welt der Sprachlosigkeit und Gewalt viel bedeutet. Ein ungewöhnliches Buch und ein grossartiger Beweis für den praktischen Nutzen der Philosophie. (Quelle: www.buch.ch)

In love by Alfred Hayes( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New York in the 1950s. A man on a barstool is telling a story about a woman he met in a bar, early married and soon divorced, her child farmed out to her parents, good-looking, if a little past her prime. They'd gone out, they'd grown close, but as far as he was concerned it didn't add up to much. He was a busy man. Then one day, out dancing, she runs into a rich awkward lovelorn businessman. He'll pay for her to be his, pay her a lot. And now the narrator discovers that he is as much in love with her as she is with him, perhaps more, though it will take him a while to realize just how utterly lost he is

No Man's Land Leben an der mexikanischen Grenze by Francisco Cantú( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was Francisco Cantú an der amerikanisch-mexikanischen Grenze erlebt, bringt ihn fast um den Verstand. Cantú hat Politik studiert und wollte am eigenen Leib erfahren, was an der Grenze wirklich geschieht. Als Mitglied der United States Border Patrol rettet er Verdurstende aus der Wüste, deportiert aber auch illegale Einwanderer oder erlebt, wie Familien auseinandergerissen werden. In seiner persönlichen Reportage zeigt er, was Grenzen für die Menschen wirklich bedeuten. No Man's Land mutet wie eine Tragödie an und bildet doch die Realität wahrheitsgetreu ab, unverzerrt, grausam und zutiefst berührend
