Details the most famous aspects of Jamaica, the music and its culture, as well as the Island's history, including the slave trade operated by Britain. Since independence in 1962, Jamaica has acquired a twin image as a resort-style travel Eden and as a new kind of Hell, presided over by drug lords.

Articles of faith : the collected Tablet journalism of Graham Greene by Graham Greene( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 315 libraries worldwide
When Graham Greene died in 1991, at the age of 86, his reputation as a "Catholic" writer was assured. His books reflected an awareness of sin and confronted political and religious themes with a somber eye. From 1936 to 1987, the British Catholic journal The Tablet provided Greene with a forum for his works-in-progress and sometimes unorthodox religious views. For the first time his Tablet contributions are collected in one volume; much of the material has remained forgotten for half a century. For the first time, too, Greene's many book reviews for The Tablet are brought together. His column for the newspaper's "Fiction Chronicle" praised the anti-Fascist Italian novelist Ignazio Silone and even a science fiction by the Czech author Karel Capek

The third man by Graham Greene( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
The setting is post-war Vienna, a once-beautiful city that was now nothing but war rubble. It's administered by the four victorious nations, Russia, France, Great Britain and the United States, and they all communicate with each other in the language of their former enemy. There's a somber mood, a feeling of decay and destruction throughout. And, of course there's a mystery, and lots of suspense, as the reader is swept into a story of intrigue, betrayal and constantly changing alliances. --Linda Linguvic at Amazon.com

Jamaica used to be the source of much of Britain's wealth, an island where slaves grew sugar and the money flowed out in vast quantities. Since independence in 1962, it has gradually become a society where extreme violence has become ordinary and gangs control the areas where most Jamaicans live. This book explores a country of lost promise
Primo Levi by Ian Thomson( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 12 libraries worldwide
"El 11 de abril de 1987 el escritor italiano Primo Levi encontraba la muerte en su casa natal. Más de cuarenta años después de haber sido rescatado de un campo de concentración nazi, parecía que Levi se había suicidado. El relato de Levi sobre Auschwitz, Si esto es un hombre, ha sido reconocido como uno de los libros esenciales de la Humanidad. Ninguna obra interroga nuestra reciente historia moral de manera tan incisiva, ni transmite más profundamente el horror del genocidio nazi. Escrito con la urgencia especial de dejar un testimonio, el libro situó a Primo Levi entre los autores más importantes de nuestro tiempo. Ian Thomson ha pasado más de diez años en Italia, y en muchos otros lugares, investigando y escribiendo esta portentosa, brillante y definitiva biografía."--Contratapa
