The essence of Judaism by Leo Baeck( Book )
23 editions published between 1936 and 1978 in English and German and held by 1,177 libraries worldwide
This classic of Jewish religious thought began as a critical essay vigorously challenging Adolf Harnack's "Essence of Christianity". It grew into a comprehensive examination of Jewish religion and an invaluable key to understanding the background of Christianity and Islam. Jewish tradition permits conflicting schools of thought to exist side by side, as well as a many-sided interplay of ceremonial law, philosophy, theology and mysticism. It has never been greatly concerned with formulating dogmas. It is therefore a major achievement to have succeeded in defining its essential ideas and doctrines. This presentation is based upon Biblical, talmudic and later rabbinical sources. It preserves the variety and fullness of these classical originals; it avoids dogmatism; yet to Judaism, with all its diversity, it has given a definitive formulation. [Back cover]

Orwell's Nineteen eighty-four : text, sources, criticism by George Orwell( Book )
14 editions published between 1963 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,131 libraries worldwide
Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell's nightmare vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff's attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life--the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language--and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written.

The secret sharer is a story of a young, inexperienced sea captain who is faced with the responsibility of command and struggling to come to terms with self-doubt and anxiety. His growth in self-knowledge and command of himself and of his ship is portrayed by an encounter with murder, secrecy, and his choice to conceal a spectral fugitive from naval justice. - a secret sharer - aboard his ship. This tale draws on actual events and people that Conrad met or heard about during his many far-flung travels. In portraying men whose incredible journeys on land and at sea are also symbolic voyages into their own mysterious depths, this tale contributes to Conrad's acclaim as a major psychological writer
