Bosie : a biography of Lord Alfred Douglas by Douglas Murray( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lord Alfred Douglas, or "Bosie" as he was known, is destined to be remembered as the lover of Oscar Wilde. Dissolute, wellborn, and beautiful as a young man, his role in the events that led to Oscar Wilde's trial and imprisonment determined the strange celebrity that haunted him until his death. Biographies of Wilde generally give only a cursory account of what happened to Douglas after Wilde's death, but Bosie recounts the full and absorbing story of his complex life. A successful though now obscure poet, he renounced homosexuality after converting to Roman Catholicism and embarked on an ill-fated marriage to Olive Custance. Lord Alfred's time was largely consumed by his growing interest in religion and costly feuds -- he was imprisoned for libeling Winston Churchill -- and he died a neglected and lonely figure in 1945. - Jacket flap

"Neoconservatism: Why We Need It mounts a vigorous defense of the most controversial political philosophy of our age. In this book, the British commentator Douglas Murray takes a fresh look at the movement that replaced Great Society liberalism, helped Ronald Reagan bring down the Wall, and provided the intellectual rationale for the Bush administration's War on Terror." "Neoconservatism: Why We Need It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the core ideals that have guided American foreign policy at the dawn of the twenty-first century."--BOOK JACKET
Oscar Wilde wit's end ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Oscar Wilde was a prolific talent who ignored the boundaries in his art and his life. As a writer, he mastered many disparate forms: poems, essays, novels, plays and children's stories. His best-known work, The Picture of Dorian Gray, cemented his reputation as the most colorful force in the drab gray of Victorian England. But the nonconformity he expressed in his works and his appearance--he was famously flamboyant--would soon bring the Irish-born writer to despair. From his days at Oxford to the revelation of his homosexuality which resulted in a trial that led to his incarceration in the Reading Jail, traces the life of the legendary writer and wit
Bloody Sunday : truths, lies and the Saville inquiry by Douglas Murray( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One hundred and eight rounds of bullets. Fourteen dead. Fourteen wounded. Two sides to a story and a four-decade search for the truth ... It was meant to be a peaceful march. But on the afternoon of 30 January 1972 in the City of Derry a riot started, the army went in and firing began. 'Bloody Sunday' became a catalyst for three more decades of violence. In 1998 a new Inquiry was ordered. It took thirteen years. This book tells what happened when victims, soldiers, spies, politicians and paramilitaries finally appeared on the witness stand. It is about the search for truth, the hope of reconciliation and the people who still stand in its way."--Publishing website
