  • Incidents of Travel in Greece, Turkey, Russia, and Poland

    Karton Kapak
    His wandering spirit mellowing his analytic eye, John L. Stephens is the best kind of guide. Whether describing the richness of a seraglio in Turkey or the drama of a gambling hall in Russia, the congenial and charismatic style of his narrative-with its hearty doses of humor-is warming, while the enthusiastic accounts of treks, discoveries, and friends made utterly engages. Add to this Stephens' conscientious inclusion of historical, sociopolitical, anthropological, and sometimes mythological, context, and Incidents of Travel in Greece, Turkey, Russia, and Poland becomes the next best thing to being there. American traveler, diplomat, and author JOHN LLOYD STEPHENS (1805-1852) topped off an academic youth by exploring the world, eventually distinguishing himself in such endeavors as playing a primary role in the building of the Panama Railroad, and producing the era's preeminent record of Mesoamerican culture in his work Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatan.

  • Trübsal einer Straßenbahn: Stadtfeuilletons

    Sert Kapak
    Der brillante Feuilletonist Joseph Roth unterwegs in den Städten zwischen Katastrophen und Kuriosem, zwischen dem Alten und dem Neuen schärft er den Blick für die verräterischen Einzelheiten seiner Zeit.Joseph Roth war vieles. Der melancholische Romancier einer versunkenen k.u.k.-Welt, ein programmatisch Heimatloser und ein Verklärer seiner selbst. Die schmerzhafte Klarheit seiner seit 1919 entstandenen Feuilletons aus europäischen Städten ist dabei kein Widerspruch. Im Gegenteil. Sie zeigt den Schriftsteller und Journalisten als radikalen Zeitdiagnostiker, der inmitten einer kriegsbeschädigten, von Arbeitslosigkeit und Wirtschaftskrise gezeichneten Welt die Empathie zum Instrument seiner Wahrnehmung macht. Ob es das von der Weltstadt zur Provinzmetropole degradierte Wien ist, ein städtisches Obdachlosenasyl am Prenzlauer Berg oder die Tristesse des Ruhrgebiets Joseph Roth will die "Ereignisse von Weltgeschichtsqualität" in ihren unmittelbaren, in ihren menschlichen Folgen zeigen. Auf die gesellschaftlichen Parallelwelten des Überflusses reagiert er mit angriffslustiger Ironie. Der Band "Trübsal einer Straßenbahn" versammelt Texte, die im Wiener Blatt Der Neue Tag, in der Neuen Berliner Zeitung oder in der Frankfurter Zeitung erschienen sind. Virtuos verdichtet Joseph Roth die großen Themen der Stadt in der kleinen Form des Feuilletons.

  • Jerusalem: Ein historisch-politischer Stadtführer

    Karton Kapak
    Kein Ort auf dieser Welt ist so umkämpft wie Jerusalem. Weltreiche und Religionen liefern sich seit Jahrtausenden einen erbitterten Kampf um die Vormachtstellung in der „Heiligen Stadt“. Gil Yaron geht in seinem „historischpolitischen Stadtführer“ bis auf die Ursprünge der Stadt zurück und erläutert ihre historische Bedeutung aus Sicht der drei Weltreligionen. Er schildert den Verlauf des Nahostkonfliktes zwischen Juden und Muslimen seit dem 19. Jahrhundert und erklärt, warum beide Seiten bis zum heutigen Tag so vehement gegeneinander kämpfen. Yarons Buch ist zugleich eine Einladung an alle, die sich mit der Geschichte und Gegenwart Jerusalems beschäftigen wollen und diese einzigartige Stadt für sich entdecken möchten.

  • The Travels of Marco Polo (Wordsworth Classics of World Literature) (Wadsworth Classics of World Literature)

    The Travels of Marco Polo (Wordsworth Classics of World Literature) (Wadsworth Classics of World Literature)

    Karton Kapak
    Marco Polo (1254-1329) has achieved an almost archetypal status as a traveller, and his Travels is one of the first great travel books of Western literature, outside the ancient world. The Travels recounts Polo's journey to the eastern court of Kublai Khan, the chieftain of the Mongol empire which covered the Asian continent, but which was almost unknown to Polo's contemporaries. Encompassing a twenty-four year period from 1721, Polo's account details his travels in the service of the empire, from Beijing to northern India and ends with the remarkable story of Polo's return voyage from the Chinese port of Amoy to the Persian Gulf. Alternately factual and fantastic, Polo's prose at once reveals the medieval imagination's limits, and captures the wonder of subsequent travel writers when faced with the unfamiliar, the exotic or the unknown.

  • Holidays in Hell: In Which Our Intrepid Reporter Travels to the World's Worst Places and Asks,

    Holidays in Hell: In Which Our Intrepid Reporter Travels to the World's Worst Places and Asks, "What's Funny About This" (O'Rourke, P. J.)

    Karton Kapak
    Now available from Grove Press, P. J. O'Rourke's classic, best-selling guided tour of the world's most desolate, dangerous, and desperate places. "Tired of making bad jokes" and believing that "the world outside seemed a much worse joke than anything I could conjure," P. J. O'Rourke traversed the globe on a fun-finding mission, investigating the way of life in the most desperate places on the planet, including Warsaw, Managua, and Belfast. The result is Holidays in Hell--a full-tilt, no-holds-barred romp through politics, culture, and ideology. P.J.'s adventures include storming student protesters' barricades with riot police in South Korea, interviewing Communist insurrectionists in the Philippines, and going undercover dressed in Arab garb in the Gaza Strip. He also takes a look at America's homegrown horrors as he braves the media frenzy surrounding the Reagan-Gorbachev summit in Washington D.C., uncovers the mortifying banality behind the white-bread kitsch of Jerry Falwell's Heritage USA, and survives the stultifying boredom of Harvard's 350th anniversary celebration. Packed with P.J.'s classic riffs on everything from Polish nightlife under communism to Third World driving tips, Holidays in Hell is one of the best-loved books by one of today's most celebrated humorists.
