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 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Memory Chalet' is a memoir unlike any you have ever read before. Each essay charts some experience or remembrance of the past through the sieve of Tony Judt's prodigious mind. His youthful love of a particular London bus route evolves into a reflection on public civility and interwar urban planning. Memories of the 1968 student riots of Paris meander through the divergent sex politics of Europe, before concluding that his generation 'was a revolutionary generation, but missed the revolution.' A series of road trips across America lead not just to an appreciation of American history, but to an eventual acquisition of citizenship. Foods and trains and long-lost smells all compete for Judt's attention; but for us, he has forged his reflections into an elegant arc of analysis. All as simply and beautifully arranged as a Swiss chalet-a reassuring refuge deep in the mountains of memory."--Dust jacket flap

Orient express by John Dos Passos( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 38 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 36 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 24 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

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.

In seiner persönlichen Reportage zeigt er, was Grenzen für die Menschen wirklich bedeuten. Quelle: Klappentext/Verlag
