The secret of the Hittites; the discovery of an ancient empire by C. W Ceram( Book )

35 editions published between 1955 and 2001 in English and German and held by 2,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: The Hittites, an ancient Indo-European people who appeared in Anatolia at the beginning of the second millennium BC, had become one of the dominant powers of the Middle East by 1340 BC. Early kings of the Hittite Old Kingdom had extended Hittite control over much of northern Syria eventually raiding down the Euphrates to Babylon. The struggle with Egypt under Ramses II for control of Syria led to one of the greatest battles of the ancient world at Kadesh in 1299 BC. The fall of the Hittite Empire in 1193 BC was sudden - perhaps because of large scale migration - and historical records were scarce. But then the discovery of Hittite cuneiform tablets at their ancient capital of Hattusa (now Bogazko, Turkey) in the 1940's yielded fascinating information about the people, their political organization, social structure, economy and religion. C.W. Ceram, author of Gods, Graves and Scholars, tells the dramatic story of the riddle of the scripts, the secret of their power and the mystery of their survival. In so doing he unlocks the secrets of this ancient empire

Götter, Gräber und Gelehrte; Roman der Archäologie by C. W Ceram( Book )

183 editions published between 1941 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Weltbestseller 'Götter, Gräber und Gelehrte' (Gesamtauflage: über 5 Millionen Exemplare) gilt als Wegbereiter des modernen Sachbuchs in Deutschland. C.W. Ceram erzählt darin die Geschichte der Archäologie als packenden, hochinformativen Tatsachenroman. Von Europa über den Vorderen Orient bis in die Neue Welt folgt er den Spuren der großen Forscher und Abenteurer. Der Leser scheint hautnah dabei zu sein, wenn Schliemann Troja entdeckt, Carter die legendäre Grabkammer des Tutanchamun öffnet, Koldewey Babylon freilegt, Thompson nach dem Schmuck der Maya taucht oder Champollion die Hieroglyphen entschlüsselt - und untergegangene Welten ihre Geheimnisse preisgeben. Cerams Klassiker ist ein bis heute unerreichtes Meisterwerk: die brillante Einführung in Methoden und Ergebnisse einer Wissenschaft. Für die Neuausgabe hat der bekannte Archäologe Michael Siebler das Buch durchgehend, aber behutsam aktualisiert. Die Bebilderung wurde vollkommen neu gestaltet und durch zahlreiche Zeichnungen von Hannelore Marek ergänzt

Eine Frau in Berlin : Tagebuchaufzeichnungen vom 20. April bis 22. Juni 1945 by Anonyma( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in German and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wer erfahren will, wie es wirklich war, wird sich an die Frauen halten müssen. Denn die Männer haben sich in den Ruinen als "das schwächere Geschlecht" gezeigt. So sieht es die Autorin dieses Buches, die das Ende des Krieges in Berlin erlebt hat. Ihre Aufzeichnungen sind frei von jeder Selbstzensur. Nicht das Ungewöhnliche wird in diesem einzigartigen Dokument geschildert, sondern das, was Millionen von Frauen erlebt haben: zuerst das Überleben in den Trümmern, ohne Wasser, Gas und Strom, geprägt von Hunger, Angst und Ekel, und dann, nach der Schlacht um Berlin, die Rache der Sieger. Von jenem Selbstmitleid, an dem die geschlagenen Deutschen litten, fehlt hier jede Spur. Illusionslose Kaltblütigkeit, unbestechliche Reflexion, schonungslose Beobachtung und makabrer Humor zeichnen das Tagebuch aus. Lakonisch stellt die Autorin fest: "Die Geschichte ist sehr lästig." Auch darin zeigt sich ihre innere Überlegenheit, dass sie sogar unter den vergewaltigenden und plündernden russischen Soldaten noch sehr genau zu differenzieren weiss
