Conversations with Ulrich Beck by Ulrich Beck( Book )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ulrich Beck is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential contemporary social thinkers. His work on risk society and his more recent writings on globalization and individualization have put him at the forefront of contemporary debates. These conversations succeed in shedding new light on these major themes as well as providing as insight into some of the commitments and beliefs that underlie them." "This new book presents Beck's ideas in an extremely clear and lucid manner, and is thus ideal for anyone seeking to come to grips with Beck's work."--Jacket
Napoleon & St Helena : on the island of exile by Johannes Willms( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The island of St. Helena, in the South Atlantic, is one of the most remote (more than 2000km from the nearest major land mass) and yet most famous islands in the world, due to it being the final place of exile of Napoleon Bonaparte, a role for which it was chosen because of its very remoteness from Europe. St. Helena today is a unique colonial survivor, almost without an economy of its own. Lacking an airport, the only regular link is by the Royal Mail Ship St Helena, the last of her type, and the inhabitants are dependent on the support of the British government. Almost the only thing going for the island is its history, with what tourists there are attracted by Napoleon's last residence, now maintained by the French government. This book is truly an account of a visit to "the last place on earth."--From publisher description

Talleyrand Virtuose der Macht 1754-1838 by Johannes Willms( Book )
6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in German and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Die Sprache ist dem Menschen gegeben, um seine Gedanken zu verbergen" - so liess der wohl berühmteste Diplomat der Weltgeschichte einmal den spanischen Gesandten wissen, als dieser ihn an ein nicht eingehaltenes Versprechen erinnerte. Johannes Willms geht in seinem neuen Buch dem rätselhaften Genie jenes Mannes nach, der es mit unnachahmlicher Geschmeidigkeit verstand, in sechs verschiedenen Regimen sechsmal eine führende Rolle einzunehmen und das vollständig besiegte Frankreich ohne die geringste Gebietsabtretung durch den Wiener Kongress zu lotsen. Talleyrands Opportunismus mit seinen geradezu mythischen Dimensionen hat ihm bis heute bei den Historikern eine schlechte Presse und heftige moralische Verurteilungen eingetragen. Anders als das gängige Bild vom skrupellosen Verräter portraitiert Willms' neue Biographie Talleyrand erstmals jenseits aller Klischees als Phänotyp seiner Zeit - einer Epoche gewaltiger sozialer und politischer Umbrüche, von der seine hochadlige Gesellschaftsschicht besonders stark betroffen war. Johannes Willms ist Historiker und Leitender Redakteur der "Süddeutschen Zeitung". Er hat vielbeachtete Werke vor allem zur französischen Geschichte vorgelegt, darunter Biographien Napoleons, Balzacs und Stendhals
