War with the newts by Karel Čapek( Book )
7 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and held by 464 libraries worldwide
Originally written in 1936, two years before Capek's death and three years before the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia, War with the Newts is considered by many to be Capek's greatest book. Working in the "fantastic" satiric tradition of Wells, Orwell, and Vonnegut, Capek chronicles the discovery of a colony of highly intelligent giant salamanders off the coast of an Indonesian island. Capek sardonically details all the reactions of the civilized world - from horror to skepticism, from intellectual fascination to mercantile opportunism - and the ultimate destruction from which it (and the newts) might not escape
The poetry of Jaroslav Seifert by Jaroslav Seifert( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 361 libraries worldwide
In 1984, Jaroslav Seifert (1901-1986) was the first Czech to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Although Seifert lived through the many historic turns of his homeland, his was not a political poetry, except in its constant expression of love for his homeland, its beauties and its values. He was the great poet of Prague, of love, of the senses. His work was unpretentious, lyrical yet irreverent, earthy, charming. Seifert was known for the simplicity of his verse, yet his poems are full of surprises, never what at first they seem. They are marked by imagery that is beautiful or comical, by good, deep values, and by love in all its forms. This is a collection of poetry written throughout his life
The Nazi concentration camps, 1933-1939 : a documentary history ( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 313 libraries worldwide
"Weeks after Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, the Nazi regime established the first concentration camps in Germany. Initially used for real and suspected political enemies, the camps increasingly came under SS control and became sites for the repression of social outsiders and German Jews. Terror was central to the Nazi regime from the beginning, and the camps gradually moved toward the center of repression, torture, and mass murder during World War II and the Holocaust. This collection brings together revealing primary documents on the crucial origins of the Nazi concentration camp system in the prewar years between 1933 and 1939, which have been overlooked thus far. Many of the documents are unpublished and have been translated into English for the first time. These documents provide insight into the camps from multiple perspectives, including those of prisoners, Nazi officials, and foreign observers, and shed light on the complex relationship between terror, state, and society in the Third Reich"--

The devil's agent : a novel by Hans Habe( Book )
6 editions published between 1957 and 1968 in German and English and held by 149 libraries worldwide
"The unheroic hero of this controversial story is George Droste, a native of Vienna, whose ironical adaptability to all kinds of situations stems from the fact that he comes from "a long line of waiters." Accidentally and casually he drifts into employment by both the Soviet and the American secret services, which flourished in that divided city on the Danube immediately after the war. His motives are neither patriotism nor political conviction. At first, the whole affair seems to him rather amusing, and an easy way to make some money. But as his assignments take him behind the Iron Curtain, to the United States, to Korea, his moral and emotional entanglement becomes increasingly stronger. He has fallen in love with Nora Guldendag, the wife of a Swedish diplomat who has vanished in the Soviet orbit, and who, presumably, was a British spy. Droste knows about Nora's hatred and contempt for espionage work, and because of his love for her, the conflict over his duplicity mounts. As their relationship develops and their love intensifies, he finds this conflict and turmoil impossible to live with."--Publisher description

Franz Kafka : pictures of a life by Klaus Wagenbach( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"In Kafka's writing, Albert Camus tells us, we travel "to the limits of human thought." And in this book, the world's leading Kafka authority conducts us to the deepest reaches of Kafka's own troubled psyche, to reveal the inner workings of the man who gave his name to a central facet of modern experience, the Kafkaesque. Klaus Wagenbach, who wrote the first major critical biography of Kafka, draws upon a wealth of new and recent information to produce a concise but finely nuanced portrait of the author, an ideal introduction to this quintessential figure of modernity." "With extensive reference to Kafka's extraordinary letters and diaries, Wagenbach shows us the author of Metamorphosis and The Trial perpetually caught between the irresistible attractions of the world and his ruthless desire for solitude and isolation. It was this tension, Wagenbach tells us, that gave Kafka's writing its uncanny quality and that haunted his intense, unresolved relationships with women. And it was in this tension that both his misery and mastery inhered, making his one of the most painfully powerful voices of the experience of the twentieth century."--Jacket
