Dylan the bard : a life of Dylan Thomas by Andrew Sinclair( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dylan Thomas was the best lyric poet of his age, who, by his life as well as his work, brought a new mass audience to his craft. A writer of rare and wonderful gifts, capable of producing some of the most beautiful lines in the language, Dylan was also capable of consuming devastating amounts of alcohol. Dylan the Bard explores how and why this enormously talented writer, torn between a search for personal peace and international notoriety, was slowly defeated by his own self-destructive nature. Mining new material, including personal letters from the poet himself and recently discovered photographs, Andrew Sinclair casts new light on the life, work and death of Dylan. He examines the divisions and tensions of Dylan's Welsh working-class heritage and puritanical English upbringing, and offers fresh, compelling insight into the relation between Dylan's poetry and his life
The sword and the grail : of the Grail and the Templars and a true discovery of America by Andrew Sinclair( Book )

20 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than ninety years before Columbus, Prince Henry St. Clair of Orkney reached North America with a Venetian captain and three hundred colonists. Based on stunning new archaeological evidence, The Sword and the Grail confirms Prince Henry's voyage and reveals the role played by the outlawed Order of the Knights Templar, who later evolved into the Masons of Scotland. This book is both an important revision of the history of the discovery of America and a fascinating revelation of the origins of the Masons. Some of the Templars carried their treasure to the St. Clair castle, where the knights' relics are still buried. The tomb of their St. Clair Grand Master, with the Grail carved on his stone, lies in Rosslyn, the core chapel of the Masonic movement. With the help of the sea skills and wealth of the Templars, Prince Henry tried to found with them a new Jerusalem in the New World, landing first in what is now Nova Scotia and then in New England. Written by a descendant of Prince Henry, The Sword and the Grail reveals startling evidence of the pre-Columbian European settlement of North America. It unveils secrets about the Knights Templar, the Grail, and the Masons that will fascinate the untold numbers of readers whose interest was stimulated by books like Foucault's Pendulum and Holy Blood, Holy Grail. All the research is original, and profound hidden mysteries of the Middle Ages are revealed at last"--Jacket

Jerusalem : the endless crusade by Andrew Sinclair( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jerusalem's stony ground yields neither water nor fruitfulness and its geography offers neither secure fortification nor breathless grandeur. Yet for three millennia this ancient and sacred city has been the focal point of an endless quest, drawing upon the passion and destructiveness of the three great religions that treasure it as their own holy city. To the geographers and sages of the Middle Ages, Jerusalem was the center of the known world. Christians claimed it as the site where Jesus Christ redeemed mankind on the Roman cross. The followers of Muhammad cherished it as the sacred city where the Prophet left his footprint on earth when he ascended to the Seventh Heaven. The Jews held it as the foundation of the Temple built to hold the Ark of the Covenant, Abraham's dream realized in stone, secured by David, and built upon by Solomon. These colliding claims by the peoples of Europe, Asia, and Africa elicited an outpouring of blood and treasure that would be the pattern for religious conflict throughout the rise and fall of Rome and Byzantium. Even after the formal crusades, the idea of Jerusalem was the focus of the energies of Reformation and Counter-Reformation. We may no longer see the axis of the earth running through Jerusalem, but the axis of history often seems to impale this ancient and holy city. The fervor it has excited and the bloodshed it has incited range from the stuff of ancient texts to today's satellite-relayed news reports. - Publisher
An anatomy of terror : a history of terrorism by Andrew Sinclair( Book )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andrew Sinclair's unique history of terrorism explores the methods and thinking behind terrorism and shows how the nature of terror has not changed since the days of the Assassins and the Mongol hordes. The only difference is that modern technology can kill in tens of millions rather than the tens of thousands the horror tactics of antiquity managed."--Jacket

Death by fame : a life of Elisabeth, Empress of Austria by Andrew Sinclair( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1898 Luigi Lucheni fatally stabbed Elisabeth, Empress of Austria, on Lake Geneva as she prepared to board a steamer from the Mont Blanc pier. Her life had been one of both profound sadness and inspiring perseverance; and in its course she set the style for the royal rebels who would follow her, particularly the late Diana, Princess of Wales. While still a child, Elisabeth was married to the Hapsburg prince Franz Josef, heir to the Austrian Empire. She gave him three children; one of whom, Crown Prince Rudolf, would later commit suicide at Mayerling. Finding the atmosphere of the Austro-Hungarian court stifling, the increasingly erratic empress traveled incessantly. Abandoning her husband to the attentions of the Viennese comic actress Katharina Schratt, Elisabeth went on errands of mercy to the docks and slums of London and Liverpool, Barcelona and Naples, Smyrna and Marseilles. She was the despair of local police, who could not protect her, even though she wore disguises. She supported independence movements in Ireland, where she hunted superbly alongside her close companion, the English cavalryman "Bay" Middleton; and also in Hungary, an integral part of her husband's deteriorating empire. When Lucheni assassinated the empress, he killed the most alluring royal figure of the Victorian age. But fame was her real executioner. Her celebrity had led to her death. Elisabeth had been driven into loneliness until she had lost all sense of reality, pursuing a desperate liberty that a confined marriage would never allow her
