The battle for Spain : the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939 by Antony Beevor( Book )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in Swedish and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"When the first version of this book was published in 1982 under the title, The Spanish Civil War, Gerald Brenan described it as 'by a long way the best, and fairest and the most accurate book upon it'. Over the intervening years, a huge amount of new material has appeared in Spain and from documents finally emerging from Russian, German and other archives. Antony Beevor's Spanish publisher persuaded him that the time was right, with the approach of the war's seventieth anniversary, to rewrite the book taking advantage of the new information and reinforcing it with new research." "Antony Beevor charts not only the course of the war in a fresh light, but illuminates the vicious infighting on both sides. The hopes and fears of a whole generation foundered in disillusionment and despair at the cruel war which destroyed the Spanish Republic."--Jacket

Svärdet och spiran by Ken Follett( Book )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in Swedish and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Men hela tiden gnagde en fråga inom mig: Varför byggdes dessa kyrkor?" Så förklarar Ken Follett hur en internationellt framgångsrik thrillerförfattare valde att skriva en 1100-sidig roman om ett medeltida katedralbygge. Han var tvungen att ta reda på hur dessa människor överskred sin tids teknologiska och ekonomiska gränser. Hur gick det till när det medeltida Europa trotsade tyngdlagen och skapade byggnader lika märkliga som pyramiderna, Eiffeltorneteller Taj Mahal? Resultatet, Svärdet och spiran, kom ut första gången 1989 och är en äventyrsroman av samma storslagna dimensioner som en medeltida katedral. Med bred pensel målar Ken Follett upp medeltidens myllrande och färgstarka värld av bönder och herrar, riddare och munkar. 1100-talets grymma värld där skampålen stod mitt på torget, därvarje sår var dödshotandeoch barnen fick svälta ihjäl. En värld av makthunger, religiös fanatism, skönhetstörst,okunskap och vanliga hyggliga människors försök att klara sig från den ena dagen till den andra. I en berättelse som sträcker sig över en mansålder skildrar Follett hur människorna i Kingsbridge tar sig an det väldiga projektet att resa kristenhetens högsta katedral. Mustigt och rättframt skildras hur den styvnackade prior Philip och hans byggmästare Tom styr Kingsbridge förbi alla tidens blodiga blindskär i form av politiska intriger, hungersnöd, inbördeskrig, besynnerliga teologiska tvisteroch adelns hänsynslösa utnyttjande av sina bönder. Samtidigt som bygget växer sig allt högre, pågår det mänskliga livet som alltid, med kärlek, åtrå, nyfikenhet, avundsjuka och hat. Översättare: Gunilla Lundborg [Elib]

As civil war erupts, Sachi and her loyal friend Taki flee for their lives across a war-torn land. Rescued by a rebel warrior, she falls passionately in love.

I am Malala : the girl who stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in Swedish and held by 1 library worldwide
När talibanerna tog kontroll över Swatdalen i Pakistan vägrade en ofattbart modig flicka att låta sig tystas. Malala Yousafzai stred för alla flickors rätt till utbildning, vilket tisdagen den 9 oktober 2012 var nära att kosta henne livet. Malala var på väg hem då skolbussen stoppades av beväpnade talibaner. Hon sköts i huvudet på nära håll och det var få som trodde att hon skulle överleva. Sexton år gammal har Malala blivit en global symbol för fredliga protester och kampen för kvinnors rättigheter, och den yngsta någonsin att nomineras till Nobels fredspris. Jag är Malala är den sanna berättelsen om en familj som tvingats bort från sitt hem av terrorister, om kampen för flickors rätt till utbildning. [Barnbokskatalogen]
