In search of Mozart by Phil Grabsky( visu )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 499 libraries worldwide
Neglected genius? Wunderkind? Rebellious superstar? Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's (1756 - 1791) legend has become a series of myths that have made it almost impossible for a 21st century audience to know who the real man was. In Search of Mozart goes a long way to unravel these myths and understand the truth about this multi-faceted character. Via a detailed journey, we go to places to which Mozart is known to have travelled. This three-part series goes to the heart of old Europe and to that of genius itself. In Search of Mozart seeks to answer why Mozart is thought of as one of the world's greatest musical geniuses. Also, it asks what makes him so sublime to some, and a little too sickly to others? And what was the world like in which he travelled? Narrated through contemporary letters and accounts, In Search of Mozart features music from Europe's greatest orchestras and finest musicians; expert interviews; and some stunning towns and cities that Mozart both visited and performed in

The teenager Kafka Tamura goes on the run and holes up in a strange library in a small country town. Concurrently, Nakata, a finder of lost cats, goes on a puzzling odyssey across Japan. Only gradually do we find how these stories interweave

"Psychologist Joe O'Loughlin is being pushed away. His marriage is ending. Charlie, his eldest daughter, will barely speak to him. And Charlie's rebellious best friend Sienna is getting into more and more trouble, and taking Charlie along for the ride. Sienna has been almost like family to O'Loughlin-a troubled child who for years spent more time in the O'Loghlin residence than her own home. O'Loughlin's worst fears are confirmed when Sienna turns up at his front door, traumatized and covered in blood. The police find a major piece of the puzzle at Sienna's house: her father Ray Hegarty, a celebrated former police officer, murdered. The blood covering Sienna was her father's. She can't remember what happened, but, at the same time, doesn't mourn her father's death. O'Loughlin vows to unearth the dark secrets of Sienna's mind, hoping his efforts will win back the confidence of a daughter he may be in danger of losing forever. But as the accusations fly, the line between victim and accused begins to blur. When the detective in charge of the case seems all too eager to lay the blame at Sienna's feet rather than malign the honor of a respected former colleague, O'Loughlin begins to make his own inquiries. But each step he takes toward the truth also brings him closer to the path of a manipulative killer unlike anything he has ever encountered"--

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett( Computer File )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 227 libraries worldwide
Samuel Beckett, one of the great avant-garde Irish dramatists and writers of the second half of the twentieth century, was born on 13 April 1906. He died in 1989. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. His centenary will be celebrated throughout 2006 with performances of his major plays, but the most popular of them all will be, without doubt, the play with which he first made his name, Waiting for Godot. It opened the gates to the theatre of the absurd as four men appear on the stage, apparently with purpose but (perhaps) waiting for someone called Godot. It is stark, funny, bemusing and still deeply affecting half a century since its first production. In this new recording for Audiobook, John Tydeman, for many years head of BBC Radio Drama, takes a fresh look at one of the milestones in Western drama

Brazil an inconvenient history by Phil Grabsky( visu )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 189 libraries worldwide
While everyone knows of the history of slavery in the USA, few people realize that Brazil was actually the largest participant in the slave trade. Forty percent of all slaves that survived the Atlantic crossing were destined for Brazil, while only 4% were sent to the U.S. At one time half of the population of Brazil were slaves. It was the last country to officially abolish slavery (1888) and one of the ex-slaves is still alive today. This well-researched BBC production charts Brazil s history using original texts, letters, accounts and decrees. From these original sources, we learn firsthand about the brutality of the slave traders and slave owners, and the hardship of plantation life. With the Portugese colony of Angola acting as a "factory" supplying Africans to Brazil, it was cheaper to replace any slave starved and worked to death than to extend his life by treating him humanely. Few plantation owners sent for their wives to live in this hot climate, so the softening effect of family life was absent among the rough white settlers. Historians Joao Jose Reis, Cya Teixeira, Marilene Rosa Da Silva, anthropologist Peter Fry, and others recount the effect of centuries of slavery on Brazil today. This is an important documentary for Black history, African history and Latin American studies
Empire by Niall Ferguson( Sound Recording )

At its peak, the British Empire was the biggest empire in history. It governed a quarter of the world's land and dominated all its seas.

This is the crucial question addressed by Niall Ferguson

He is killed in the old temple and the people assume that the gold is a gift from the gods. The three sons of Ratharryn's chief each preceive the great gift in a different way: the eldest Lengar, harnesses his murderous ambition to be a ruler; Camaban, the second son, has a vision that will force the youngest brother, Saban, to create the great temple on the green hill where the gods will appear on earth. It is Saban who is the leader and the man of peace. It is his love for a sorceress that finally brings the rivalries of the brothers to a head." -- back cover
