Articles of faith : the collected Tablet journalism of Graham Greene by Graham Greene( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Graham Greene died in 1991, at the age of 86, his reputation as a "Catholic" writer was assured. His books reflected an awareness of sin and confronted political and religious themes with a somber eye. From 1936 to 1987, the British Catholic journal The Tablet provided Greene with a forum for his works-in-progress and sometimes unorthodox religious views. For the first time his Tablet contributions are collected in one volume; much of the material has remained forgotten for half a century. For the first time, too, Greene's many book reviews for The Tablet are brought together. His column for the newspaper's "Fiction Chronicle" praised the anti-Fascist Italian novelist Ignazio Silone and even a science fiction by the Czech author Karel Capek
Haiti by Bruce Gilden( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in 5 languages and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From voodoo to violence in Gilden's chilling portrait of Haiti. Steeped in Voodoo and brutalized by its rulers, Haiti is a country where human life is cheap and animals hardly worth life. This book by photographer Bruce Gilden sets out to capture the unconscious violence that runs through the country from slaughterhouse to street, and the importance of Voodoo. Winner of the 1996 European Publishers Award, this stunning work is by native New York photographer Bruce Gilden who has been based in Paris for five years. Widely represented in numerous collections including MOMA, New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, Gilden has been the recipient of three National Endowment of the Arts awards. His previous books are 'Facing New York' and 'Bleus'

The dead yard : tales of modern Jamaica by Ian Thomson( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jamaica used to the source of much of Britain's wealth, an island where slaves grew sugar and the money flowed out in vast quantities. It was a tropical paradise for the planters, a Babylonian exile for the Africans shipped to the Caribbean. Since independence in 1962, it has gradually become associated with a new kind of hell, a society where extreme violence has become ordinary and gangs control the areas where most Jamaicans live. Ian Thomson's brave new book explores a country of lost promise, a country that most older Jamaicans in Britain cannot recognise as their own. Once a beacon of optimistic third world politics, the island is now sunk in corruption, hopelessness and drug wars. Jamaica's music was once the lilting anthem of idealists everywhere; now it is a repetitive glorification of homophobia and violence"--Global Books in Print

Napoli består av forfalne boligkvarterer der klesvasken henger høyt over trange smug, livlige markeder, mørkøyde skjønnheter, vespaer og fingerferdige lommetyver - men fremfor alt er dette pizzaens fødeby.
