Inferno : the fiery destruction of Hamburg, 1943 by Keith Lowe( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1943, British and American bombers launched an attack on the German city of Hamburg unlike anything the world had ever seen. For ten days they pounded the city with over 9,000 tons of bombs. The firestorm they created was visible for 200 miles, and pockets burned for a month. The people of Hamburg had no time to understand what had hit them. As they emerged from their cellars and shelters, they were confronted with a vision of hell: a sea of flame, the burned-out husks of fire engines, roads that had become flaming rivers of melted tarmac, and hurricane-force winds. Writer Lowe interviewed eyewitnesses and gathered together hundreds of documents. His book gives the human side of an inhuman story: the long, tense buildup to the Allied attack; the unparalleled horror of the firestorm itself; and the terrible aftermath.--From publisher description
The fear and the freedom : how the Second World War changed us by Keith Lowe( Book )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Dutch and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fear and the Freedom is Keith Lowe's follow-up to Savage Continent. While that book painted a picture of Europe in all its horror as WWII was ending, The Fear and the Freedom looks at all that has happened since, focusing on the changes that were brought about because of WWII--simultaneously one of the most catastrophic and most innovative events in history. It killed millions and eradicated empires, creating the idea of human rights, and giving birth to the UN. It was because of the war that penicillin was first mass-produced, computers were developed, and rockets first sent to the edge of space. The war created new philosophies, new ways of living, new architecture: this was the era of Le Corbusier, Simone de Beauvoir and Chairman Mao. But amidst the waves of revolution and idealism there were also fears of globalization, a dread of the atom bomb, and an unexpressed longing for a past forever gone. All of these things and more came about as direct consequences of the war and continue to affect the world that we live in today. The Fear and the Freedom is the first book to look at all of the changes brought about because of WWII. Based on research from five continents, Keith Lowe's The Fear and the Freedom tells the very human story of how the war not only transformed our world but also changed the very way we think about ourselves."--Publisher's description

New free chocolate sex : a novel by Keith Lowe( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To make herself feel better, Samantha started running through all the positive aspects of the situation. For example, being locked in a chocolate factory would make an excellent basis for a magazine story ... But each time she glanced in Matt's direction, she felt a thrill of anxiety pass through her, and all thoughts of her documentary dissolved. No matter how she tried, it was going to be impossible to view this as a solely journalistic experience. Can your sworn enemy become your romantic obsession' Keith Lowe, the wickedly witty author of Tunnel Vision, shows that it can happen in this enchanting story of a man and a woman who learn that love is indeed the least predictable flavor in life's box of chocolates. Matt, the brilliant young marketing director of Trundel & Barr, one of the United States' leading confectioners, loves chocolate. To him it represents sensuousness and innocent joy; it is to be adored, worshipped, and exploited at every opportunity. For Samantha, however, chocolate represents something more sinister. Working on a TV documentary, she's discovered that the subject is not as sweet as she thought: While Western children cram their faces with candy bars, African children are working in horrendous conditions to produce them. Since Matt's company is one of the worst offenders, Sam soon decides it's her mission to expose it and, in the process, destroy Matt. Then, by accident or fate, Sam and Matt find themselves locked in the extremely close quarters of the Trundel & Barr chocolate factory. As their repeated attempts to escape from the factory fail, they realize that they are stuck with each other -- and they are finally forced to take a good look at the real reasons why they find it so difficult to get along. Both spirited and seductive, New Free Chocolate Sex is the perfect read for anyone who finds a smart romantic comedy to be the sweetest treat of all

Podivjana celina : Evropa po drugi svetovni vojni by Keith Lowe( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Slovenian and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evropa je bila med drugo svetovno vojno in takoj po njej moralno razčlovečena in materialno uničena. Avtor v svoji študiji obravnava obdobje 1944-1949, v središču njegovega zanimanja ni vznesenost novega začetka iz "Stunde Null", lotil se je težavnejše naloge: opisati kaos. Zgodovinski analizi je pridružil tudi pričevanja posameznikov, preživelih žrtev vojnega in povojnega nasilja, zavezniških vojakov, vojnih ujetnikov in humanitarnih delavcev, ki so bili priča grozodejstvom in skrajnim življenjskim razmeram. Rdeča nit knjige je strahovito povojno maščevanje, ki ni imelo nobenega opravka s sodišči in ustreznimi ustanovami. Žrtve so sedaj postale storilke grozodejstev, ki so lahko razumljivi samo z vidika medvojne izpostavljenosti mučenju, poniževanju in pobijanju, ki ga je izvajal zločinski režim in njegovi kolaboranti. Celina je dokončno podivjala, ko so, tudi zaradi političnih interesov, stvari ušle izvajeti. Izbruhnile so državljanske vojne, začel se je nov holokavst, novo etnično čiščenje. Mnoge države niso izgnale in pobijale samo Nemcev, na vrsto so prišli zopet Judi, Romi in manjšine, ki so "ogrožale" matični narod. Enostranskost študije je po avtorjevih besedah namenska, saj večina knjig to najbolj bolečo fazo povojnega preporoda zanemarja ali pa obravnava v širšem časovnem okviru
