Everybody know the face of Franz Kafka, whether they have read any of his works or not. And that brooding face carries instant images; bleak and threatening visions of an inescapable bureaucracy, nightmarish transformations, uncanny predictions of the Holocaust. But while Kafka's genius is beyond question, the image of a mysterious, sickly, shadowy figure who was scarcely know in his own lifetime bears no resemblance to the historical reality

My little armalite by J. M Hawes( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All Dr. John Goode asks is for a little house in north London where people read The Paper and speaking decent English doesn't get his kids kicked. Though spending 1984-89 studying East Germany was possibly a mistake, surely fifteen years of solid lecturing has earned John Goode the right to such a modestly normal life?" "But while planting a plum tree in his little south-London garden, Goode finds a long-buried assault rifle. Before he has time to think, he is sent staggering from the Red Lion in Peckham to Prague to Dresden. He finds that Europe, liberalism and the ice caps are all melting down faster than his inhibitions: normal is gone with the wind and cultivating one's own garden these days needs more than just a spade." "And if the world won't keep to the bargain he made in 1984, maybe John Goode, Doctor of Philosophy, has just found a tool to renegotiate the deal..."--BOOK JACKET

Excavating Kafka by J. M Hawes( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kafka's features, and that dreaded word, Kafkaesque, are known to millions who have never read serious literature. Generations of academics and critics have maintained the image of Franz Kafka as a tortured seer whose works defy interpretation. In Excavating Kafka James Hawes reveals the truth that lies beneath the image of a middle-European Nostradamus with a typographically irresistible name. The real Franz Kafka was no angst-ridden paranoid but a well-groomed young man-about-town who frequented brothels, had regular sex with a penniless-but-pretty girl and subscribed to upmarket pornography (published by the very man who published Kafka's first stories). Excavating Kafka debunks a number of key facets of the Kafka-Myth, including the idea that Kafka was the archetypal genius neglected in his lifetime; that he was stuck in a dead-end job and struggling to find time to write; that he was tormented by fear of sex; that he had a uniquely terrible, domineering father who had no understanding of his son's needs; that his literature is mysterious and opaque; that he constructs fantasy-worlds in which innocent everymen live in fear of mysterious and totalitarian powers-that-be

Englanders and Huns : the culture-clash which led to the First World War by J. M Hawes( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If Britain had stayed out of the Great European War of 1914, whose general line up (France and Russia v. Germany and Austria) and whose obvious flashpoint (the Balkans) had been clear to thinking men since 1879, Britain's history really would have ended, and not in tears, for the result would have been beyond doubt: Germany would have acceded to the place which must now seem her manifest destiny by the autumn of 1915 at the latest, before that war became the Great War, the slaughter of a generation, the breaking of Empires and the womb of horrors. This book is about how Germany blew it and about how Britain became her nemesis

Matchdays : the hidden story of the Bundesliga by Ronald Reng( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enormous success of German football is envied around the world ... Ronald Reng takes a unique approach to explain the history and peculiarities of German football. He follows the tracks of a journeyman footballer, Heinz Höher ... who has been in the Bundesliga all his life, from the first day of its existence in 1963 until now, as a player, manager, sports director and youth coach ... we see through Höher's story the wider picture of how German football, and even German society, developed from the ruins of the Nazi era to become the football and economic powerhouse of today. Born in 1939, Heinz Höher spent his childhood in Nazi Germany ... He became the small-town hero of Bayer 04 Leverkusen, a stylish winger and the first to let his hair grow like those strange musicians from England, the Beatles. He witnessed the big match-fixing affairs of the seventies, fought in vain the temptations of so many managers - alcohol and gambling - and realised that, even at 75, his real addiction is still the game"--Publisher's description
