A history of reading by Alberto Manguel( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in Swedish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book - that string of confused, alien ciphers - shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader. Noted essayist Alberto Manguel moves from this essential moment to explore the 6000-year-old conversation between words and that magician without whom the book would be a lifeless object: the reader. Manguel lingers over reading as seduction, as rebellion, as obsession, and goes on to trace the never-before-told story of the reader's progress from clay tablet to scroll, codex to CD-ROM

Mandela : en biografi by Anthony Sampson( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in Swedish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Den auktoriserade biografin om legenden Mandela Historien om Nelson Mandelas liv och verk är en av de stora berättelserna under 1900-talet - och en av de mest hoppingivande. Den brittiske journalisten och författaren Anthony Sampson har följt Mandela mellan åren 1951 och 2000. Han har också haft fri tillgång till Mandelas privata papper från fängelsetiden på Robben Island. Sampsons bok sprider nytt ljus över de moraliska dilemman och personliga val som Nelson Mandela tvingades till, både i sitt privata och offentliga liv. Den döljer inte Mandelas egna tillkortakommanden, men visar det pris han fick betala i sin kamp mot apartheid: att leva åtskiljd från dem han älskade. Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013, tilldelades Nobels fredspris 1993. [Elib]

The revolt of the elites : and the betrayal of democracy by Christopher Lasch( Book )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in Swedish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this challenging work, Christopher Lasch makes his most accessible critique yet of what is wrong with the values and beliefs of America's professional and managerial elites. The distinguished historian argues that democracy today is threatened not by the masses, as Jose Ortega y Gasset (The Revolt of the Masses) had said, but by the elites. These elites - mobile and increasingly global in outlook - refuse to accept limits or ties to nation and place. Lasch contends that, as they isolate themselves in their networks and enclaves, they abandon the middle class, divide the nation, and betray the idea of a democracy for all America's citizens. The book is historical writing at its best, using the past to reveal the roots of our current dilemma. The author traces how meritocracy - selective elevation into the elite - gradually replaced the original American democratic ideal of competence and respect for every man. Among other cultural trends, he trenchantly criticizes the vogue for self-esteem over achievement as a false remedy for deeper social problems, and attacks the superior pseudoradicalism of the academic left. Brilliantly he reveals why it is no wonder that Americans are apathetic about their common culture and see no point in arguing politics or voting. In a powerful final section Lasch traces the spiritual crisis of democracy. The elites, having jettisoned the moral and ethical guidelines provided by religion, cling to the belief that through science they can master their fates and escape mortal limits. In pursuit of this illusion they have become infatuated with the global economy. Their revolt, the author warns, is diminishing what is worthwhile about American life. This volume, completed just before the author's death, continues in his tradition of vigorous and original thought and should stir soul-searching among readers concerned about the future of America and its democracy

Afrika Framtidens kontinent by Richard Dowden( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in Swedish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Afrika har många ansikten. Det är en kontinent full av överraskningar, där inget land liknar något annat. Under tre decennier har journalisten Richard Dowden levt och rest i Afrika, och träffat framträdande politiska ledare och varit ögonvittne till många dramatiska skeenden. Afrika är en modern nutidshistoria över den afrikanska kontinenten. Här ges förklaringen till de många krigen och katastroferna likväl som till de framsteg som gjorts. Dowden diskuterar också vad den stora kinesiska närvaron kan betyda för Afrika och vilka vägar de afrikanska länderna kan gå i framtiden. [Publit]
