About looking by John Berger( Book )
26 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,382 libraries worldwide
"As a novelist, art critic, and cultural historian, John Berger is a writer of dazzling eloquence and arresting insight whose work amounts to a subtle, powerful critique of the canons of our civilization. In About Looking he explores our role as observers to reveal new layers of meaning in what we see. How do the animals we look at in zoos remind us of a relationship between man and beast all but lost in the twentieth century? What is it about looking at war photographs that doubles their already potent violence? How do the nudes of Rodin betray the threats to his authority and potency posed by clay and flesh? And how does solitude inform the art of Giacometti? In asking these and other questions, Berger quietly - but fundamentally - alters the vision of anyone who reads his work."--Pub. desc

Pig earth by John Berger( Book )
52 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,005 libraries worldwide
With this haunting first volume of his Into Their Labours trilogy, John Berger begins his chronicle of the eclipse of peasant cultures in the twentieth century. Set in a small village in the French Alps, Pig Earth relates the stories of skeptical, hard-working men and fiercely independent women; of calves born and pigs slaughtered; of summer haymaking and long dark winters f rest; of a message of forgiveness from a dead father to his prodigal son; and of the marvelous Lucie Cabrol, exiled to a hut high in the mountains, but an inexorable part of the lives of men who have known her. Above all, this masterpiece of sensuous description and profound moral resonance is an act of reckoning that conveys the precise wealth and weight of a world we are losing

From A to X : a story in letters by John Berger( Book )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 767 libraries worldwide
"In the dusty, ramshackle town of Suse lives A'ida. Her insurgent husband Xavier has been imprisoned. Resolute, sensuous and tender, A'ida's letters to the man she loves tell of daily events in the town, and of its motley collection of inhabitants whose lives flow through hers. But Suse is under threat, and as a faceless power inexorably encroaches from outside, so the smallest details and acts of humanity - an intimate dance, a shared meal - assume for A'ida a life-affirming significance, acts of resistance against the forces that might otherwise extinguish them." "From A to X is a powerful exploration of how humanity affirms itself in struggle: imagining a community which, besieged by economic and military imperialism, finds transcendent hope in the pain and fragility, vulnerability and sorrow of daily existence."--Jacket
The sense of sight : writings by John Berger( Book )
13 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and held by 715 libraries worldwide
With this provocative and infinitely moving collection of essays, a preeminent critic of our time responds to the profound questions posed by the visual world. For when John Berger writes about Cubism, he writes not only of Braque, Leger, Picasso, and Gris, but of that incredible moment early in this century when the world converged around a marvelouis sense of promise. When he looks at the Modigiliani, he sees a man's infinite love revealed in the elongated lines of the painted figure. Ranging from the Renaissance to the conflagration of Hiroshima; from the Bosphorus to Manhattan; from the woodcarvers of a French village to Goya, DUrer, and Van Gogh; and from private experiences of love and of loss to the major political upheavals of our time, The Sense of Sight encourages us to see with the same breadth, courage, and moral engagement that its author does
A fortunate man; the story of a country doctor by John Berger( Book )
45 editions published between 1967 and 2016 in English and held by 679 libraries worldwide
In 1966 John Berger spent three months in the Forest of Dean shadowing an English country GP, John Sassall. Sassall is a fortunate man - his work occupies and fulfils him, he lives amongst the patients he treats, the line between his life and his work is happily blurred. In A Fortunate Man, Berger's text and the photography of Jean Mohr reveal with extraordinary intensity the life of a remarkable man. It is a portrait of one selfless individual and the rural community for which he became the hub. Drawing on psychology, biography and medicine, A Fortunate Man is a portrait of sacrifice. It is also a profound exploration of what it means to be a doctor, to serve a community and to heal

Hold everything dear : dispatches on survival and resistance by John Berger( Book )
22 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and Turkish and held by 620 libraries worldwide
Political activist John Berger analyzes terrorism and the profound despair that gives rise to it. He writes about homelessness of millions who have been forced by poverty and war into lives as refugees. He discusses Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Serbia, Bosnia, China, Indonesia - anyplace the power of corporations, the military, or paramilitary elements is being exercised, depriving ordinary citizens of autonomy or livelihoods or most basic freedoms. This collection of essays suggests ideas and action that might bring suffering to an end. This book holds a reflective mirror up to post-9/11 realities
Keeping a rendezvous by John Berger( Book )
28 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 598 libraries worldwide
When he stands before Giorgione's La Tempesta, John Berger sees not only the painting but our whole notion of time, sweeping us away from a lost Eden. A photograph of a gravely joyful crowd gathered on a Prague street in November 1989 provokes reflection on the meaning of democracy and the reunion of a people with long-banished hopes and dreams. With the luminous essays in Keeping a Rendezvous, we are given to see the world as Berger sees it -- to explore themes suggested by the work of Jackson Pollock or J.M.W. Turner, to contemplate the wonder of Paris. Rendezvous are manifold: between critic and art, artist and subject, subject and the unknown. But most significant are the rendezvous between author and reader, as we discover our perceptions informed by John Berger's eloquence and courageous moral imagination.

Between the eyes : essays on photography and politics by David Levi Strauss( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 591 libraries worldwide
"In Between the Eyes, David Levi Strauss examines subjects ranging from "Photography and Propaganda" to the ephemeral imagery of dreams; from Sebastiao Salgado's epic social documents to the profoundly personal photographic revelations of Francesca Woodman. In "A Ferocious Philosophy," Walt Whitman, George Eastman, and Paul Virilio sit down to an imagined conversation about democracy and images. The timely issue of photographic "legitimacy" is addressed in "Photography and Belief," and in "The Highest Degree of Illusion," Strauss looks at the media frenzy surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001"--Jacket
Corker's freedom : a novel by John Berger( Book )
44 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 560 libraries worldwide
From the author of the Booker Prize-winning G. and the extraordinary trilogy Into Their Labours, an early novel, written thirty years ago and published here for the first time. An exhilarating and engrossing novel about the elderly owner of an employment agency whose romantic yearnings and inarticulate dreams propel him into a world of fantasy, Corker's Freedom displays the story-telling magic that is a hallmark of John Berger's highly acclaimed fiction. In this powerfully unsettling tale about the pitfalls of free will, we observe the gradual disintegration of one man's genteel and shabby life as he is driven, over the course of one day, to seek an illusory freedom from the bonds of responsibility. Berger explores the disturbingly gray areas between the private and the public self in a mordantly witty novel, which is always aware of the absurdity that resides in the midst of tragedy
