Fire by Sebastian Junger( Book )
25 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 3,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For readers and viewers of The Perfect Storm, opening this new work by Sebastian Junger will be like stepping off the deck of the Andrea Gail and into the inferno of a fire burning out of control in the steep canyons of Idaho. Here is the same meticulous prose brought to bear on the inner workings of a terrifying elemental force: here is a cast of characters risking everything in an effort to bring that force under control." "Few writers have been to so many desperate corners of the globe as has Sebastian Junger: fewer still have provided such starkly memorable evocations of characters and events. From the murderous mechanics of the diamond trade in Sierra Leone to the logic of guerrilla warfare in Afghanistan and the forensics of genocide in Kosovo, this new collection of Junger's nonfiction will take you places you wouldn't dream of going to on your own."--Jacket
A death in Belmont by Sebastian Junger( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 2,743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the spring of 1963, the quiet suburb of Belmont, Massachusetts, is rocked by a shocking sex murder that exactly fits the pattern of the Boston Strangler. Sensing a break in the case that has paralyzed the city of Boston, the police track down a black man, Roy Smith, who cleaned the victim's house that day and left a receipt with his name on the kitchen counter. Smith is hastily convicted of the Belmont murder, but the terror of the Strangler continues. On the day of the murder, Albert DeSalvo--the man who would eventually confess in lurid detail to the Strangler's crimes--is also in Belmont, working as a carpenter at the Jungers' home. In this spare, powerful narrative, Sebastian Junger chronicles three lives that collide--and ultimately are destroyed--in the vortex of one of the first and most controversial serial murder cases in America"--From publisher description

Kognition, Kommunikation, Kultur : Aspekte integrativer Theoriearbeit by Sebastian Junger( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kultur gibt es nur da, wo es einen Diskurs von Kultur gibt, und jede Theorie von Kultur ist Teil ihres Vollzugs. Die Beschreibung von Kultur setzt zugleich eine Kultur der Beschreibung voraus und vollzieht sie. Sebastian Jünger versucht nichts Geringeres, als eine universelle Phänomenologie zu begründen, die sowohl sich selbst als auch die behandelten Konzepte Kognition, Kommunikation und Kultur hinsichtlich ihrer Bedingungsverhältnisse wie ihrer Wechselwirkungen zu bestimmen in der Lage ist. Dabei setzt er nicht wie üblich mit einer Aufarbeitung und gelegentlichen Korrektur vorliegender Theoriebestände an. Vielmehr beginnen die Überlegungen des Autors auf einer Ebene, die noch grundsätzlicher ist, nämlich auf der Ebene einer Theorie der Theorie. Kultur ist bei diesem Einstieg deshalb so relevant, weil sie insofern den konzeptuellen Limes von Theorie überhaupt bildet, als eine Theorie der Kultur nicht mehr zwischen der Theorie und ihrem Gegenstand trennen kann. Sein Ansatz, das Verhältnis zwischen Theorie und ihrem Gegenstand als wechselseitigen Bedingungszusammenhang zu modellieren, ist ein wichtiger Beitrag sowohl zur gegenwärtigen wissenschaftstheoretischen wie auch zur sozial- und kulturwissenschaftlichen Diskussion
