Seven pillars of wisdom by T. E Lawrence( Book )

26 editions published between 1936 and 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Seven Pillars of Wisdom we have a timely book, and one that will remain timely into the foreseeable future. In Lawrence we have an impeccable witness; not a diplomat, not a politician, not a lobbyist, but a scholar and a soldier who embodied that vestige of chivalry that has now all but vanished. He records what he saw and what he undertook, living among those warriors whom he led in a manner seldom experienced by any other officer. Hence, Lawrence had empathy for the Arabs that will hopefully be of keen interest to the present generations who are fed a daily diet of Islamophobia and Arabophobia, literally 'anti-Semitism', since it is the Arabs who are the sons of Shem. The picture given by Lawrence is of a people very different from today's media and Hollywood stereotypes that are part of a propaganda offensive to justify a genocidal war against a people and a faith which could not only have co-existed with, but which could have remained as firm friends, with the West on the basis of the friendship that had been cultivated by Lawrence. As Seven Pillars shows, the 'West' and the Arabs and all of Islam are now embroiled in a conflict that has it's roots in the diplomatic duplicity during World War I, which has brought chaos to a large expanse of the world, and which shows no signs of abating in the lifetime of any reader of this book. Lawrence here sets the dramatic background against which this tragedy is being played out
Revolt in the desert by T. E Lawrence( Book )

30 editions published between 1912 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arab Revolt of 1916-1918, when the disparate tribes of Arabia rose up as one great force to defeat an empire, was one of the most turbulent periods in the history of the Middle East and a pivotal element of the Middle Eastern arena of World War I. It sounded the death knell for the Ottoman Empire and paved the way for a new colonial power in the region - the British. It was T.E. Lawrence, a young army officer with a brilliant military mind and unmatched knowledge of the region and the Arab people, who - alongside the charismatic Faisal I - led the Revolt. These were epic events that changed the shape of the Middle East and affected Lawrence for the rest of his life. His magnificent first-hand account of the period is now a classic of 20th century literature

The jungle book : the Mowgli stories by Rudyard Kipling( Book )

30 editions published between 1936 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kippling hat mit diesem Buch seine Vorstellung von Indien eingefangen und mit ihnen das Dschungelgesetz als Modell menschlichen Gemeinwesens dargestellt. Vergeblich jagt Schir Khan, der Tiger, ein Menschenjunges. Die Wölfe nehmen es auf und nennen es Mowgli. Mowgli lernt die Sprache der Tiere und bezwingt später bei den Menschen seinen Feind Schir Khan. Das Wolfskind, der Panther Bagheera, die Riesenschlange Kaa und Baloo, der Bär, leben als "klassische", oftmals verfilmte Jugendliteraturfiguren weiter. (Quelle: Verzeichnis ZKL)
