"For centuries Afghanistan has been the playground of big powers, from Alexander the Great to the British Empire and the Soviet Union.

Here is a short history, setting the background to the current situation."
The Tale of Troy by Benedict Flynn( Sound Recording )

"There was once a time, nearly four thousand years ago, when the tall towers of a city called Troy reached gleaming into the sky; when its proud king fought against an invading army in a desperate siege. [The story] was so important to the ancient Greeks that its author, Homer, became a kind of hero. Long after his death artists, thinkers and ordinary people still look to his tale for inspiration."

Great men and women in the history of medicine by David Angus( Sound Recording )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 46 libraries worldwide
"Illness, disease and injury prompted the development of medicine from the earliest days of mankind: useful herbs, methods for treating wounds and even setting bones were passed down the generations by word of mouth. With the growth of civilisation came more scientific methods, generally discovered by significant individuals. This informative and entertaining audiobook presents the major figures in the history of medicine, from Hippocrates in Ancient Greece to the Roman doctor Galen, the medieval abbess Hildegard of Bingen and the Arabs Ibn Sina and Al-Razi. They are succeeded by Andreas Vesalius and his anatomical investigations during the Renaissance, and subsequently by William Harvey (the circulation of the blood), Edward Jenner (inoculation), before the discovery of penicillin and DNA. This is one of the most fascinating stories in human history and, as this audiobook shows, one of the most varied--and exciting!"--Container

Dangerous liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos( Sound Recording )
3 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 43 libraries worldwide
"Dangerous liaisons" is a gripping, unforgettable tale of passion, treachery and cruelty whose leading protagonists remain in the memory long after the story has been told. In their secret letters to each other, the unscrupulous yet seductive Valmont, his clever, manipulative accomplice, the Marquise de Merteuil and their various innocent victims, involve us in the machinations of a sadistic plot which ends in tragedy and misery for all. An enduring success since its first publication in 1782, and more recently through adaptations for the stage and film, the epistolary nature of the original make it equally powerful on audiobook

Samuel Taylor Coleridge by Samuel Taylor Coleridge( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
"Samuel Taylor Coleridge, in collaboration with his friend William Wordsworth, revolutionised English poetry; in 1798 they produced their Lyrical Ballads, poems of imagination and reflection using 'the language of men'. They pointed the way forward for a generation of Romantic poets. Coleridge's addiction to opium affected his poetic output, and yet the handful of poems he did produce were innovative. These ranged from the quietly conversational to the wildly imagined, and include two of the greatest in English literature: Kubla Khan and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner."--Publisher's description
