Napoleon Bonaparte England's prisoner by Frank Giles( Recording )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After his surrender to the Royal Navy, Napoleon became the object of massive English public interest. He would live out his last years on the island of St. Helena without ever admitting to being a prisoner. This close study of Napoleon in captivity attempts to reconstruct an authentic portrait of the fallen emperor by examining contemporary documents and records of public opinion. Napoleon worked hard to obfuscate his history of tyranny with a legend elevating him as the architect of a federation of free European peoples, thwarted by reactionary monarchs and British envy. Many English citizens collaborated in this legend, and joined in the condemnation of Napoleon's jailer and guardian, Sir Hudson Lowe. Frank Giles takes a fresh look at both Lowe and Napoleon, condemned to each other on an island for six years
The dog who couldn't stop loving : how dogs have captured our hearts for thousands of years by J. Moussaieff Masson( Recording )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson has long been interested in the relationships between humans and animals, and he's always been aware that there was something very special in our bond with dogs. No other animals love us in quite the same way as dogs love us. And it is mutual. Is it possible that we developed our capacity for love, sympathy, empathy, and compassion because of our long association with dogs? Over the past 40,000 years a collective domestication has occurred that brings us to where we are today--humans have formed intense bonds with dogs, and the adoration is almost always reciprocal--a love affair unmatched in the animal world
Lighten up [love what you have, have what you need, be happier with less] by Peter Walsh( )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his previous bestselling books, Peter Walsh helped audiences successfully get rid of the clutter in their homes, on their bodies, and in the six key emotional and spiritual areas of their lives. Now, in Lighten Up, Walsh explores what happens when the clutter is finally gone and shows listeners how to let go of wanting more and learn to live a richer, fuller life with what they already own. For many of us, the new austerity has left us feeling afraid and deprived, but Walsh explains that this shift in priorities is a great opportunity to reassess our lives and circumstances and make changes that focus us on the things that really matter. He asks two questions: How much does the life you want cost-in money, time, and energy? And what would your ideal life be? He then offers clear practical steps to help listeners find the balance between these two answers and offers ways to scale down their wants by repurposing, reusing, and reimagining what they already own so that they can create a life of clarity, balance, and peace
Empires of the sea the siege of Malta, the battle of Lepanto, and the contest for the center of the world by Roger Crowley( Recording )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thrilling account of the brutal decades-long battle between Christendom and Islam for the soul of Europe. This struggle's brutal climax came between 1565 and 1571, seven years that witnessed a fight to the finish decided in a series of bloody set pieces: the epic siege of Malta, in which a tiny band of Christian defenders defied the might of the Ottoman army; the savage battle for Cyprus; and the apocalyptic last-ditch defense of southern Europe at Lepanto--one of the single most shocking days in world history. At the close of this cataclysmic naval encounter, the carnage was so great that the victors could barely sail away because of the countless corpses floating in the sea. Lepanto fixed the frontiers of the Mediterranean world that we know today
2666 by Roberto Bolaño( Recording )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed in the last years of Roberto Bolaño's life, 2666 was greeted across Europe and Latin America as his most brilliant achievement, surpassing even his previous work in its strangeness, beauty, and scope. The epic's subject matter ranges from the heady heights of literature and love to the gritty realism of violence and death. Its throng of unforgettable characters includes an enigmatic Prussian novelist who vanishes from the public eye; a group of literary critics who share a passion for the novelist's works; an African-American journalist sent to Mexico on a sports beat after his mother's death; and a Chilean professor whose mind is slowly losing its grip on reality. Their lives intersect in the urban sprawl of Santa Teresa, a fictional Juárez on the U.S.-Mexico border, where the serial killings of hundreds of young working class women remain unsolved
