Lord Acton by Roland Hill( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and German and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lord Acton (1834-1902), numbered among the most esteemed Victorian historical thinkers, was much respected for his vast learning, his ideas on politics and religion, and his lifelong preoccupation with human freedom. Yet Acton was in many ways an outsider. He stood apart from his contemporaries, doubting the notion of unlimited progress and the blessings of nationalism and democracy. He differed from fellow members of the English upper class, holding to his Catholic faith. And he angered other Catholic believers by fiercely opposing the doctrine of papal infallibility." "The book describes Acton's extended family of European aristocrats, his cosmopolitan upbringing, and his disrupted education. Hill discusses Acton's brief career as a Liberal member of Parliament, his work as editor and owner of learned Catholic journals, his battles for freedom for and in the Catholic Church, his friendship with William E. Gladstone, and his seven years as Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge University."--Jacket

Die Reise beginnt in Dublin. Im Boyne-Tal zeugen die mächtigen Ganggräber von Newgrange von der Megalithkultur des steinzeitlichen Irland. Der Hill of Tara war Jahrhunderte lang Sitz keltischer Hochkönige und Druiden. Kilkenny, Limmerick und Cahir geben mit ihren mächtigen Trutzburgen einen Eindruck vom mittelalterlichen Lebern. Auf dem Rock of Cashel steht eine der eindrucksvollsten Kirchenfestungen Europas. Die Halbinseln Kerry, Beara und Dingle markieren zusammen mit dem Killarney Nationalpark das touristische Zentrum des Südwestens. Auf dem Weg zu den bunten Pubs von Galway locken die Cliffs of Moher. Die steinige Hochebene des Burren und die Moore des Connemara Nationalparks sind typisch für die karge Nordwestküste.

A time out of joint : a journey from Nazi Germany to post-war Britain by Roland Hill( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Roland Hill’s biography,A Time Out of Joint, is a remarkable and moving personal story and much more: it enables readers to re-live European history during the darkest period of Nazi Germany and World War II, when traditional European culture and civilization generally seemed to be extinguished, but also to experience the return of peace and a time of hope. Roland Hill was born in Hamburg in 1920 to prosperity and culture -- his father was a sugar trader and his mother an opera singer. Both were of Jewish descent but had converted to Christianity. But the stable and tolerant world he was born into changed dramatically with Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The family moved to Prague, Vienna and Milan. Austria became Hill’s spiritual home where he was received into the Roman Catholic church -- a move which decisively shaped his life - and where he started his journalistic career. Nazi persecution scattered the family and he sought refuge in Britain, totally alone and with only a £5 note, classed simply as a “Refugee from Nazi Persecution”. Roland Hill survived the European maelstrom to take a full part in Europe’s resurgence and his moving story, full of drama and atmosphere - and based on a unique gift for friendship -- vividly evokes the highs and lows of his remarkable life
