9/11 through Saudi Eyes ( visu )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 356 libraries worldwide
"In this program, a broad cross-section of Saudis -- parents and neighbors of the accused hijackers, editors of Arab News and Asharq Al Awasat, political and military analysts, a psychologist, and others -- give their perceptions of events and issues involving September 11th. Interviews provide background on and insights into the lives and minds of the alleged hijackers, the recruitment practices of al Qaeda, the co-opting of jihad for militant political ends, Osama bin Laden's cult of personality, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and frustration over U.S. foreign policy. This video, the first documentary to scrutinize 9/11 from the Saudi perspective, is a powerful learning tool for students of political science, the Middle East, and Islam."--Distributor's website
A sleeping life : an Inspector Wexford mystery by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )

"The body found under the hedge was that of a middle-aged woman. The gray eyes were wide and staring, and in them Inspector Wexford thought he saw a sardonic gleam. But that must have been his imagination. The woman was a stranger. There was nothing to give him her address, name or occupation, let alone any clues that might lead to her killer."
Shake hands forever by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 236 libraries worldwide
Chief Inspector Wexford could discover no motive, no reason and no suspect. Probably he was reading meaning where there was none; probably Angela Hathall really had picked up a stranger, and that stranger had killed her. But why such doubt? Was Wexford becoming cynical and untrusting -- or was this one of the most ingenious crimes he had ever tackled?
Sins of the fathers by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )

Harry Painter hung for it, and Chief Inspector Wexford is certain they executed the right man. But Reverend Archery has doubts--because his son wants to marry the murderer's beautiful, brilliant daughter. He begins unravelling the past, only to discover that murder breeds murder--and often conceals even deeper secrets

Nostromo by Joseph Conrad( Sound Recording )
20 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
Set in the fictional South American country of Costaguana, Nostromo explores the volatile politics and crippling greed surrounding the San Tomé silver mine. The story of power, love, revolutions, loyalty and reward is told with richly evocative description and brilliantly realised characters. But, Nostromo is more than an adventure story; it is also a profoundly dark moral fable. Its language is as compellingly resonant as the sea itself; the characters absorbing and complex. It was Conrad's masterwork, a forerunner of Modernism, and one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century

Not in the flesh by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 85 libraries worldwide
Searching for truffles in a wood, a man and his dog unearth something less savoury - a human hand. The body, as Chief Inspector Wexford is informed later, has lain buried for ten years or so, wrapped in a purple cotton sheet. The post mortem cannot reveal the precise cause of death. The only clue is a crack in one of the dead man's ribs. The police computer stores a long list of missing persons: something like 500 people every day disappear nationwide
End in tears by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 84 libraries worldwide
PLAYAWAY. A lump of concrete dropped deliberately from a small stone bridge over a quiet road kills the wrong person. The driver behind is spared. But only for a while. It is impossible for Chief Inspector Wexford not to wonder how terrible it would be to discover that one of his daughters had been murdered. Sylvia has always been a cause for concern. Living alone with her two children, she is pregnant again. What will happen to the child? And, distinctly unimpressed with old-fashioned police methods, one particular member of the local press is gunning for the Chief Inspector
