1913 : the year before the storm by Florian Illies( Book )
10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 776 libraries worldwide
"It was the year Henry Ford first put a conveyer belt in his car factory, and the year Louis Armstrong first picked up a trumpet. It was the year Charlie Chaplin signed his first movie contract, and Coco Chanel and Prada opened their first dress shops. It was the year Proust began his opus, Stravinsky wrote The Rite of Spring, and the first Armory Show in New York introduced the world to Picasso and the world of abstract art. It was the year the recreational drug now known as ecstasy was invented. It was 1913, the year before the world plunged into the catastrophic darkness of World War I. In a witty yet moving narrative that progresses month by month through the year, and is interspersed with numerous photos and documentary artifacts (such as Kafka's love letters), Florian Illies ignores the conventions of the stodgy tome so common in 'one year' histories. Forefronting cultural matters as much as politics, he delivers a charming and riveting tale of a world full of hope and unlimited possibility, peopled with amazing characters and radical politics, bristling with new art and new technology, even as ominous storm clouds began to gather."--book jacket

In August, 1944, Major Hans Georg Klamroth was tried and executed for treason for his part in the July plot against Hitler. Wibke Bruhns, his youngest daughter, was six years old. Decades later, watching a documentary, she saw images of her father on-screen. "I stare at this man with the empty face. I don't know him. But I can see myself in him... I know I resemble him. I know I wouldn't be here without him. And what do I know about him? Nothing at all." How could her patriotic family succumb to Nazi sympathies? And what made her father finally renounce Hitler? With letters and diaries documenting the story of her family, from the time of Kaiser Wilhelm to the end of the Second World War, she unravels her family's history-- the experience of being German in the last century.--From publisher description
54 by Wu Ming (Writers collective)( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 573 libraries worldwide
In Hollywood, Cary Grant has grown weary of cinema's glamour, but Her Majesty's Secret Service will break his malaise with a bizarre diplomatic mission. In Naples, Lucky Luciano fixes horse races and begins to lay the foundation for the global heroin trade. And in Bologna, a bartender searches for true love and his missing communist father. It is 1954--the height of the Cold War--and these three are on a path toward an intersection that will involve the nascent KGB, Joseph McCarthy, Frances Farmer, Parisian lowlifes, Marshal Tito, David Niven, James Bond, and a very special television set called the McGuffin Electric. This book is a political thriller, a comic spy caper, a romance, and a social satire.--From publisher description

Napoleon's exile by Patrick Rambaud( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 372 libraries worldwide
"Patrick Rambaud closes his epic trilogy, which began with The Battle, winner of the Prix Goncourt and the Grand Prix Roman de l'Acadrmie Francaise, and The Retreat, with this stunningly intimate look at Napoleon. In 1814 Napoleon is racing back to Paris from the debacle of his Russian invasion. A plot afoot in the capital--to return a royal to the throne--succeeds, and Napoleon's marshals force him to abdicate and go into exile. Octave Senecal, Napoleon's loyal aide and savior and one of Rambaud's marvelous creations, tells the tale of their journey south through the angry, mob-filled countryside to Elba, a tiny island off the coast of Tuscany. Here Patrick Rambaud brings to life not the Napoleon of the history books, but Napoleon the man--a man horribly bored by exile, gambling with his mother to pass the time, spearing the occasional tuna with local fishermen, and fretting constantly that secret agents and murderers surround him. He is soon planning his escape, while in France his former soldiers spend their evenings drinking to the return of "l'absent." They won't have long to wait."--Publisher's website

Julian has invited twenty-one of the world's richest and most powerful individuals to sample his brand-new lunar accommodation, hoping to secure the finances for a second elevator. On Earth, meanwhile, cybercop Owen Jericho is sent to Shanghai to find a young female hacker known as Yoyo, who's been on the run since acquiring access to information that someone seems quite determined to keep quiet. As Jericho closes in on the girl and the conspiracy swirling around her, he finds mounting evidence that connects her to Julian Orley as well as to the entrepreneur's many competitors and enemies.

Red love : the story of an East German family by Maxim Leo( Book )
6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 260 libraries worldwide
The gripping story, lovingly told, of what held East Germany together - and what, in the end, destroyed it. Growing up in East Berlin, Maxim Leo knew not to ask questions. All he knew was that his rebellious parents, Wolf and Anne, with their dyed hair, leather jackets, and insistence he call them by their first names, were a bit embarrassing. That there were some places you couldn't play; certain things you didn't say. Now, married with two children and the Wall a distant memory, Maxim decides to find the answers to the questions he couldn't ask. Why did his parents, once passionately in love, grow apart? Why did his father become so angry, and his mother end her career in journalism? And why did his grandfather Gerhard, the Socialist war hero, turn into a stranger? The story he unearths is, like his country's past, one of hopes, lies, cruelties, betrayals, but also love. In Red Love he captures, with warmth and unflinching honesty, why so many dreamed the German Democratic Republic would be a new world and why, in the end, it fell apart
The confusions of young Törless by Robert Musil( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 256 libraries worldwide
Like his contemporary and rival Sigmund Freud, Robert Musil boldly explored the dark, irrational undercurrents of humanity. The Confusions of Young TOrless, published in 1906 while he was a student, uncovers the bullying, snobbery, and vicious homoerotic violence at an elite boys academy. Unsparingly honest in its depiction of the author's tangled feelings about his mother, other women, and male bonding, it also vividly illustrates the crisis of a whole society, where the breakdown of traditional values and the cult of pitiless masculine strength were soon to lead to the cataclysm of the First World War and the rise of fascism. A century later, Musil's first novel still retains its shocking, prophetic power
