Od 191 do 260:

191. Kenner, Hugh: “A Homemade World“ – The American Modernist Writers (Š – 1298; DB – 00-333)
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1975
Pages: 221
Price: 800 RSD

The “homemade world“ that Hugh Kenner poses is coeval with – and in contrast to – the world of Pound, Joyce and Eliot. While they were laying the international foundations of literary modernism, another modernism far more specifically American was being born in the work of William Faulkner, Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore – all of whom lived and worked in the United States – and in the novels of Hemingway and Fitzgerald, who, despite sorties abroad, drew their themes from America and spoke to America. It is Kenner’s thesis that these writers, so different from each other, nevertheless both inhabitated and created a common world – a homemade world scarcely at all indebted to European precedents and models.

192. Assayas, Michka: “Bono on Bono“ (Š – 2556; DB – 01-100)
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton, London, 2005
Pages: 323
Price: 1500 RSD

Michka Assayas is a music journalist and novelist who lives and works in Paris. Michka met Bono in London in 1980, and was the first journalist to champion U2 outside Ireland and the United Kingdom. Michka and Bono have spent the last two years putting this book together at Bono’s home in Dublin, and in Paris, Bologna and on the French Riviera.
“I’m a scribbling, cigar-smoking, wine-drinking, bible-reading band man. An activist travelling salesman of ideas. Chess-player, part-time rock star, opera singer, in the loudest folk group in the world“ – Bono on being Bono.  The book also encompasses  Bono’s reflections on his childhood, U2, politics, his work for Africa, etc.


193. Adkins, Roy and Lesley: “Jack Tar“ – The Extraordinary Lives of Ordinary Seamen in Nelson’s Navy (Š – 1351; DB – 01-223)


Publisher: Abacus, London, 2009
Pages: 429
Price: 1000 RSD

When Lord Nelson was born 250 years ago, the navy for which he sacrificed his life depended on one thing above all else – the thousands of sailors and marines whomanned the great wind-powered wooden warships. These ordinary men were drawn – often unwillingly – from all over Britain and beyond, and they made teh Royal navy invincible through skill, courage and sheer determination.
Jack Tar gives these forgotten men a voice in an enthralling picture of what their life was really like during this age of sail. Letters, diaries and other manuscripts reveal how they lived, worked, fought and died on board the warships. Their emotions and experiences are explored, from the dread of press-gangs and shipwreck, to the exhilaration of battle, grog, prize-money and prostitutes.

194. Maxtone – Graham, John: “Titanic Survivor“ – The Memoirs of Violet Jessop Stewardess (Š – 2242; DB – 01-380)
Publisher: Budding Books, Great Britain, 1999
Pages: 238
Price: 1000 RSD

Violet Jessop was stewardess for first-class passengers on the Titanic when it sank on its maiden voyage in April 1912 after hitting an iceberg. Her description of the sinking is chilling as she sees to the needs of the passengers before finding a warm coat for herself.
These memoirs give us a unique glimpse of life below decks aboard one of the great ocean liners. From Jessop’s unusual vantage point, we learn what life was like for those who worked on the ships: hilarious fellow stewardesses, cramped quarters, wartime alerts, impossible passengers, philandering shipmates, exotic ports, unrequitted love and tragic deaths.

195. James, Henry: “The Portrait of a Lady“ (Š – 1186; DB – 00-035)
Publisher: Random House, New York, 1951
Pages: 438
Price: 800 RSD
The Portrait of a Lady is a novel by Henry James, first published as a serial in The Atlantic Monthly and Macmillan's Magazine in 1880–81 and then as a book in 1881. It is one of James's most popular long novels, and is regarded by critics as one of his finest. The Portrait of a Lady is the story of a spirited young American woman, Isabel Archer, who in "affronting her destiny”, finds it overwhelming. She inherits a large amount of money and subsequently becomes the victim of Machiavellian scheming by two American expatriates. Like many of James's novels, it is set in Europe, mostly England and Italy. Generally regarded as the masterpiece of James's early period, this novel reflects James's continuing interest in the differences between the New World and the Old, often to the detriment of the former. It also treats in a profound way the themes of personal freedom, responsibility, and betrayal.

196. McSmith, Andy: “No Such Thing As Society” – A History of Britain in the 1980s (Š – 7065; DB – 07-190)
Publisher: Constable, London, 2011
Pages: 386
Price: 1000 RSD

To look back in 1990 at the Britain of a decade earlier was to look into another country. The British now lived in an ideological universe where the defining conflict of the twentieth century, between capitalism and socialism, was over. Thatcherism took the politics out of politics and created vast differences between rich and poor, but with no expectation that the existence of such gross inequalities was a problem that society or government could solve.
From the Falklands War and the miners’ strike to Bobby Sands and the Guildford Four, from Princess Diana and the New Romantics to Live Aid and the Big Bang, from the Rubik’s cube to the ZX Spectrum, McSmith’s brilliant narrative account uncovers the truth behind the revolutionary decade of the twentieth century.

197. Saviano, Roberto: “Gomorrah – Italy’s Other Mafia” (Š – 1911; DB – 01-233)
Publisher: Pan Books, London, 2008
Pages: 300
Price: 900 RSD

In the spring of 2006, what began as a reporter’s investigation of Neapolitan organized crime made international news headlines. Vigilante journalist Roberto Saviano compiled the most thorough account to date of the camorra, the Neapolitan mafia, which exerts a malign influence on contemporary Italy. At great personal risk, Saviano worked undercover in his native city in camorra-controlled factories, construction sites and even as a waiter at a mob wedding. He recalls seeing his first murder at the age of fourteen, and how his own father, a doctor, suffered a brutal beating for trying to aid an eighteen-year-old victim who had been left for dead in the street.
Unforgettable and utterly compelling, Gomorrah is a nightmare journey into a world of devastating brutality.

198. Bland, James: “The Complete True Crime Diaries“ (Š – 910; DB – 01-015)
Publisher: Index, GB, 2004
Pages: 379
Price: 800 RSD

From notorious killers like Crippen, Nilsen, the Kray twins, Florence Maybrick and Charles Manson to less infamous crimes of the last century and before, this is an intriguing catalogue of tragic, quirky, gory, ingenious, bungled and horrifying murders. Three hundred and sixty real-life murder stories, arranged in diary form for the fascination of all true crime addicts.
True Crime Diaries recounts a large number of modern murder stories, many of them already famous. The subjects were chosen according to author’s own preferences, with due regard for variety, oddities of character and quirks of fate.

199. Theroux, Paul: “The Great Railway Bazaar“ (Š – 5581; DB – 04-076)
Publisher: Penguin Books, London, 2008
Pages: 379
Price: 800 RSD

The Great Railway Bazaar is Paul Theroux’s account of his epic journey by rail through Asia. Filled with the evocative names of legendary train routes – the Direct-Orient Express, teh Khyber pass Local, teh Delhi Mail from Jaipur, teh Golden Arrow to Kuala Lumpur, the Hikari Super Express to Kyoto and the Trans-Siberian Express. – it describes the many places, cultures, sights and sounds he experiences and the fascinating people he meets. Here he overhears snippets of chat  and occasional monologues, and is drawn into conversation with fellow passengers, from Molesworth, a British theatrical agent, to Sadik, a shabby Turkish tycoon, while avoiding the forceful approaches of pimps and drug dealers. This wonderfully entertaining travelogue pays loving tribute to the romantic joys of railways and train travel.

200. Crick, Bernard: “George Orwell – A Life“ (Š – 2575; DB – 03-523)
Publisher: Secker & Warburg, London, 1980
Pages: 473
Price: 1500 RSD

This long-awaited book is the first full biography of one of the greatest English writers of the twentieth century. Probably no two english novels of the last fifty years have been more widely read than Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm; certainly no two works of English fiction have been more influential, in the original as in the translation, while as a political writer, literary critic, journalist and essayist, Orwell has few rivals.
Bernard Crick is the first writer to have been given complete access to the Orwell estate and to the Orwell archives. He has also interviewed Orwell’s many and distinguished friends and lesser-known contemporaries. He is also the first to have been given unlimited rights of quotation from all of Orwell’s published and unpublished work.

201. De Mille, Agnes: “To a Young Dancer“ (Š – 1755; DB – 00-181)
Publisher: Putnam, London, 1963
Pages: 170
Price: 1200 RSD

Agnes de Mille addresses this book to every young person who wishes to dance professionally. The Great coreographer and woman of the theatre gives generously of her experience in direct, unsparing advice, sharing the exaltation of dancers in their art, but never disguising the ceaseless hard work and dedication that the ballet demands. She discusses the problems which all young men and women must face if they are to become professional dancers, and makes shrewd and detailed suggestions about teachers, auditions and behaviour at rehearsals.

202. Storey, Richard: “Perfect Pesuasion“ (Š – 931; DB – 01-236)
Publisher: Random House, UK, 2009
Pages: 234
Price: 600 RSD

Perfect Persuasion is essential reading for anyone who wants to improve their powers of influence. Written by Richard Storey, an expert with years of experience in the field, it explains how to identify other people’s motivations, gives practical advice about staying calm when faced with resistance, and takes you through every skill necessary to win people over to your point of view. Whether you would like to influence colleagues or make changes in your personal life, Perfect Persuasion has everything you need to make sure you get your point across effectively.

203. Rand & Rose Flem-Ath: “When the Sky Fell“ – In Search of Atlantis (Š – 1253; DB – 00-849)
Publisher: Orion, London, 1955
Pages: 179
Price: 800 RSD

Rand and Rose Flem-Ath unravel the secret of the destruction of Atlantis. A study of ancient maps and Plato’s clues to the lost continent all point convincingly at Abtarctica – under a blanket of ice, say the authors, lies the lost city of Atlantis.
In this fascinating and detailed investigation, the authors discover the secrets of Atlantis by examining other conundrums: why have some areas of the globe experienced simultaneous mass extinctions; why are perfectly preserved mammoths encapsulated in the ice of Siberia; could the Sphinx be much older than has been thought; and who drew the amazingly accurate maps of the Americas and ice-free Antarctica that date from long before European explorers ever reached those shores.

204. Wilson, John: “Travelling Blind“ (Š – 1423; DB – 01-159)
Publisher: The Adventurers Club, London, 1963
Pages: 223
Price: 1200 RSD

During the fifties, John Wilson has felt his way more than 200,00 miles through Africa, Asia, the pacific and Caribbean Islands, Europe and America, and has twice circled the world. Merely as an account of travel, Travelling Blind has exceptional scope, but its unique interest derives from the fact that the author happens to be totally blind. This fact, though he treats its consequences with lightness and sometimes with hilarity, enables him to view the experience of travel from a new angle, and to describe places and events in terms which are often vividly revealing, simply because they do not depend on sight.

205. Warne, O. H: “Your Guide to Sardinia“ (Š – 1879; DB – 00-837)
Publisher: Alvin Redman, London, 1965
Pages: 186
Price: 1000 RSD

The author takes you on a trip round the coast with stops at places likely to be of interest to the holiday-maker, followed by trips into the interior. There is a general description of the historical background, the fullest information on air, sea and rail services, with a comprehensive list of the hotels and locande, and an excellent map at the back of the book.
There is plenty to see in Sardinia, numerous splendid examples of Pisan church architecture, Roman roads and ruins, especially noteworthy being the Roman amphitheatre in Cagliari, where people today live in the cages once occupied by wild beasts and Christian martyrs.

206. Clark, Leonard: “Yucatan Adventure“ (Š – 1389; DB – 00-867)
Publisher: The Adventurers Club, Londodn, 1955
Pages: 256
Price: 2000 RSD

Clark and one companion set off on their journey with equipment which cost  in total very little more than 10 pounds. Their journey, much of it on foot, took them to those great Mayan remains mostly to be found under dense undergrowth in Quintana Roo territoty and Campeche State. Towards the end they suffered great hardship through climatic conditions, water shortages, the attentions of such animals as jaguars and pumas, as well as those of  mosquitoes and other insects, and fever; and their general exhaustion was only increased when their pack animals failed. But apart from adventure there is acur+te observation and from it comes a splendidly readable and penetrating story of this land and its former glory, about which there is ever-increasing interest and speculation and about which so little has yet been written.

207. Sloan, Alfred P: “My Years With General Motors“ (Š – 1546; DB – 00-337)
Publisher: Sidgwick & Jackson
Pages: 472
Price: 1500 RSD

Alfred P. Sloan’s own story of his extraordinary achievement with General Motors has become the most famous book about management of this century. When Sloan joined General Motors in 1918 it was a sprawling, loosely organized company heading towards severe financial and management crises. By the time of his retirement in 1957, the company had become the largest private industrial eneterprise in the world, producer of about half the passenger cars and trucks in the United States and Canada. This is an almost unparalleled business achievement.
John Egan, chairman of Jaguar, writes the introduction to this edition, pointing out that Soan’s story is just as important to businessmen now as it was when it was first published in 1963.

208. Hyams, Edward: “The Traveller’s Bedside Book“ (Š – 1806; DB – 01-170)
Publisher: Faber and Faber, London, 1970
Pages: 261
Price: 1000 RSD

In this delectable assortment of travel pieces, Edward Hyams journeys from Indonesia to the USSR, from Australia to New York, from Wales to Persia – stopping often, and enchantingly, en route. All his varied interests – among them people and architecture, gardening and wine – help to make a book both wide-ranging and informative, in every sense a pleasure to read and re-read.

209. Horwood, Harold: “Bartlett – The Great Canadian Explorer“ (Š – 1417; DB – 01-192)
Publisher: Doubleday & Co, New York, 1977
Pages: 194
Price: 1000 RSD

Captain Robert Bartlett was the greatest ice navigator of this century, a bold and skillful seaman, and a truly heroic figure in the history of modern exploration. Born in Newfoundland in 1875, heir to a great family tradition of seafaring men, Bartlett spent over fifty years of his life mapping the waters of the Far North and led over twenty expeditions to the Arctic – more than anyone before or since. Although celebrated in his own lifetime, in both the United States and Europe, Bartlett’s name is not well known today. This splendid biography, based largely on Bartlett’s own memoirs, ships, logs and other documents, is a long overdue tribute to a man of vision and daring.

210. Cutler, Tom: “211 Things a Bright Boy Can Do“ (Š – 960; DB – 01-243)
Publisher: Harper Collins, London, 2006
Pages: 300
Price: 900 RSD

The essential life-skills handbook for bright boys of every age, featuring all those things thew didn’t teach you at school or Boy Scouts.

Divided into handy sections, this fascinating volume contains easy-to-follow tutorials and priceless tips, including: How to Be a Real man (how to mow the perfect lawn and how to tell if a girl fancies you); Bracing Outdoor Activities (cowboy ropecraft, how to punt and how to make a boomerang come back); Militant Cookery (how to make your own pickled eggs and how to spit-roast and dress a suckling pig); Parlour Diversions (shadow portraits, easy tunes for the glass harmonica, and classic and new party pieces and gags).

211. ed. Ellmann, Richard: “The New Oxford Book of American Verse“ (Š – 1336; DB – 00-215)
Publisher: Oxford University Press, New York, 1976
Pages: 1076
Price: 1000 RSD

American poetry is here displayed in all its variety over three hundred years. Many of the poems are intimately amorous or confessional, but there are also public statements in verse, amd philosophical and political lyrics. Some poems are satirical or humorous: some are folksongs, ballads, or hymns.
Ellmann here considers from the point of view of the 1970’s such earlier poets as Emerson, Poe and Whitman, and he presents as well the modern poetry of Frost, Stevens, Williams, Pound and Eliot. But he has also chosen from the last thirty years the leading contemporaries whose reputations are still in process of being consolidated – such as Imamu Amiri Baraka (Leroi Jones), Sylvia Plath, A. R. Ammons, Frank O’Hara, Allen ginsberg, adrienne Rich, etc. With these and their predecessors he exhibits the principal directions of American poetry, and the character of its achievement.

212. Uris, Auren: “How to Be A Successful Leader“ (Š – 2858; DB – 06-659)
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., New York, 1953
Pages: 237
Price: 900 RSD

This book gives you a systematic, practical method for appraising and mastering the problems of leadership. It is a method that looks at leadership in terms of everyday use and that is so flexible it can be used by many different people under many different circumstances.
Mr. Uris points out that the vital key to leadership lies in three basic techniques – autocratic, democratic, and free-rein.  All leaders use one or a combination of these methods, but, says Mr. Uris, the uestion is when to use which method. He then analyzes each method and shows you how to tailor it to your personal needs and to various situations.

213. ed. Carey, John: “The Faber Book of Reportage“ (Š – 996; DB – 00-956)
Publisher: Faber and Faber, London, 1987
Pages: 706
Price: 1500 RSD

What was it like to be caught in the firestorm that buried Pompeii in volcanic ash? To have dinner with Attila the Hun? To witness human sacrifice among the Aztecs? To stifle in the Black Hole of Calcutta? To watch the Charge of the Light Brigade from the heights of Balaclava? To see the Titanic slide beneath the waves?
John carey has chosen the eye-witness accounts in this book from hundreds of memoirs, letters and travel books, as well as newspapers. The time span reaches from ancient Greece to February 1986 when James Fenton, in the Philippines, joins the crowd rampaging through President Marcos’s hastily vacated palace. There are disasters, executions, and batles – often seen from unaccustomes angles: a French knight’s account of Agincourt; EL Alamein from a German armoured car. But peace has its dramas too. We set foot with the pilgrim fathers in the silent forests of America; we sit spellbound in the audience as Garrick plays Hamlet.

214. Matthew, Donald: “Atlas of Medieval Europe“ (Š – 1789; DB – 01-249)
Publisher: Time Life Books, UK, 1991
Pages: 240
Price: 1500 RSD

This atlas surveys the history of European culture and society from the decline of the Roman empire to the discovery of America in the late 15th century. The Roman world, which began to break up in the 5th century, was superseded by several different political societies with different interests in its traditions and different capacities to absord its legacy: Byzantium, Islam and the barbarian states of Western Europe. A central part of the book is devoted to a highly illustrated treatment of the fruits of civilization, thematically divided into aspects of urban society, rural society and the arts. For ease of reference the book is equipped with a chronological table, glossary, bibliography, gazetteer and index.

215. Swift, Jonathan: “Gulliver’s Travels“ (Š – 4576; DB – 00-733)
Publisher: The Children’s Golden Library, Madrid, 2004
Pages: 314
Price: 900 RSD

Lemuel Gilliver, a surgeon on a merchant ship, is shipwrecked on the strange island of Lilliput where the inhabitants are only six inches tall. After they overcome their timidity about the giant in their midst, Gulliver becomes embroiled in the islanders’ petty disputes about such issues as whether it is better to break an egg at the big end or the little end, the rivalry between those who prefer low heels and the ridiculous pomposity of their miniature emperor.
This is not the ned of Gulliver’s adventures, for he later finds himself on Brobdingnag, where the natives are incredibly tall; the flying island of Laputa, where the natives intellectualise from dawn till dusk; and, finally, the country of the wise Houyhnhnms and the vulgar Yahoos. All human life is satirised here, from politicians to priests an dphilosophers to poets.

216. Naipaul, V. S: “An Area of Darkness“ (Š – 2140; DB – 01-358)
Publisher: The Reprint Society, London, 1966
Pages: 288
Price: 1200 RSD

This is not only a discovery of India, but also a writer’s discovery of a great deal in himself. To see with such cool, Western detachment, and simultaneously to understand as no Westerner could, was an extraordinary and disturbing experience which only a writer so masterly as V. S. Naipaul could convey.
He travelled widely, going as far south as Madras, as far east as Calcutta, and as far north as Kashmir. He describes places, people and incidents with all the brilliance and sense of comedy which his readers have come to take for granted, but he does not confine himself to making a simple “travel book“ of them. They are used as points of departure into various aspects of India as a whole and of the thoughts and emotions it aroused in him.

217. Schwartz, Harry: “The Red Phoenix“ – Russia Since World War II (Š – 2535; DB – 03-506)
Publisher: Frederick A. Praeger, New York, 1961
Pages: 427
Price: 1200 RSD

The rise of the Soviet Union from the devastation of World War II to its present position as one of the two superpowers constitutes perhaps the most dramatic chapter in modern history. In THE RED PHOENIX, a distinguished journalist and authority on Russia traces step by step the astonoshing story of this transformation, providing a carefully documented, wide-ranging, up-to-the-minute survey of postwar Soviet history. Here, in short, is a shrewd and knowledgeable observer’s journalistic history of the Soviet Union since World War II. Filled with facts and authoritative analysis, it offers the reader indispensable background for an understanding of the crucial struggle of our time.

218. Newman, Bernard: “Far Eastern Journey“ – Across India and Pakistan to Formosa  (Š – 1394; DB – 00-904)
Publisher: The Travel Book Club, London, 1961
Pages: 221
Price: 800 RSD

Bernard Newman’s ambitious journey across southern Asia began in Pakistan, where he travelled northwards to the Khyber Pass to be entertained by the Wali of Swat, and on to Kashmir, with its lovely vales and mountains. Then across India – Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur, the Rajput country – to the Ganges valley, Benares and Calcutta. From there he went to Singapore and Hong Kong. The result is an up-to-the moment travel book that presents the facts in a most lively and readable manner.

219. Liversidge, Douglas: “The Whale Killers“ (Š – 1001; DB – 00-911)
Publisher: The Adventurers Club, London, 1964
Pages: 191
Price: 900 RSD

Here are true and most thrilling stories: the story of the survivors of a capsized catcher near South Georgia who kept alive on an ice-floe, gradually going mad and existing on row penguin; the kava orgies in the Pacific; the rogue whales – notably Mocha Dick – which sank ships and terrorized crews; Blubbertown on the threshold of the North Pole; the whaling skipper who ate his nephew; the frozen crew of the whale-ship which drifted for thirteen wears like a floating tomb; the foremast hand who trekked 1,700 miles to get help for his shipmates, only to be accused of deserting his ship; and the harpooner who, murdering the skipper and leading a mutiny, was obsessed with the idea that riches awaited him in Australia. These and many more amazing incidents are contained in this book.

220. Clunn, Harold P: “The Face of Paris“ (Š – 5498; DB – 03-960)


Publisher: Spring Books, London, 1960
Pages: 310
Price: 1200 RSD

Here is a unique book about a unique city. Between its covers the author has assembled the most remarkable and comprehensive collectionof facts about the magic which is Paris ever to appear in a single volume. This book is about a place which has for centuries fascinated not only the people of France, or even of Europe, but of the world. Its avenuesand boulevards, its monuments and public buildings, are more splendidly laid out than those of any other town in Europe. The magnificent tree-lines vista of the Champs-Elysees, the great architecture of Notre Dame, dominating the Ile de la Cite, the Seine flowing between the wide quais and the tall, handsome buildings – these are a few of the striking features of the Face of Paris.

221. Ramson, W. S: “The Australian Experience“ (Š -1061; DB – 00-483)
Publisher: Australian National University, Canbera, 1974
Pages: 344
Price: 800 RSD
Literary Criticism

In its challenge to look afresh at sixteen novels about the Australian experience of life – novels as different as  Harris’s Emigrant Family, Stow’s Tourmaline, Keneally’s Jimmie Blacksmith or White’s Vivisector – this book adds a new dimension to Australian literary criticism. The novels range from the nineteenth century to today; their subjects are as diverse as colonial utopianism, the savagery of the convict system, the treatment of primitive peoples, war and nationalism. Yet through them all runs one universal, human theme: the search for self-understanding.

222. Bradley-Beatty-Long: “The American Tradition in Literature“  (Š – 1094; DB – 00-514)
Publisher: Norton&Co, New York, 1956
Pages: 1733
Price: 1000 RSD
Literary Criticism

This is the anthology with which all others must be compared. It contains more than 400 pages of new selections – from Edward taylor to Adrienne Rich. It vastly increases the scope of the modern period, treating our century as much more than a mere glamorous appendage. It so enlarges representation of major authors that it can be favorably compared to any “major authors“ anthology. Big in content, practical and compact in format, high in quality, low in price – the American Tradition in Literature has been flatteringly imitated, but there is only one.

223. ed. Stewart, Douglas & Keesing, Nancy : “Old Bush Songs“ (Š – 1340; DB – 00-244)
Publisher: Angus & Robertson, Australia, 1976
Pages: 289
Price: 1000 RSD

A really comprehensive collection of Australia’s unique, colourful bush songs – old favorites such as “The Wild Colonial Boy“, “Wallaby Joe“ and “The Dying Stockman“, as well as many lesser- known songs and rhymes collected from early colonial books and newspapers and culled from the memories of old-timers.
The nucleus of this collection is “Banjo“ Paterson’s Old Bush Songs, out of print for many years. Much new material has been included, and details of sources and helpful explanatory notes have been supplied.
Here are songs of and about Australian people from the earliest days of settlement onwards – convict songs, songs of farmers and stockmen, pioneers and swagmen on the track. This is a collection to be enjoyed by all who appreciate the humour, the colour, the rich variety of Australia’s folk verse.

224. Allen, D, Tallman, W: “Poetics of the New American Poetry“ ( Š – 1334; DB – 00-250)
Publisher: Grove Press, New York, 1973
Pages: 463
Price: 800 RSD

In this new anthology, the editors present a definitive collection of the statements on their own poetics by twenty-five leading poets who, in Warren Tallman’s words, “achieve spectacular fulfillment in our century of what Whitman was calling for in his.“ For it is in Whitman that the editors see the beginning of the movements that extends into our day through the work of the poets grouped in the “New American Poetry“. The common denominator which the editors find in this movement, despite the divergence among the individual poets, is teh search “for new or renewed writing in hopes of a new or renewed world.“

225. Tanner, Tony: “The Reign of Wonder“ (Š – 1069; DB – 00-502)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1965
Pages: 388
Price: 1000 RSD
Literary Criticism

The adopted attitude towards reality and experience in American literature tends to be one of wonder and cultivated naivety rather than analysis and judgement. In this book Mr Tanner offers some reasons for this and seeks to demonstrate the peculiar importance of wonder in American literature, by examining a number of key  writers and showing how they confronted and assimilated reality. At the same time he considers some of the difficulties incurred by this approach and studies its effects on American style.

226. Borges, Jorge Luis: “An Introduction to American Literature“ (Š – 1062; DB – 00-524)
Publisher: The University Press of Kentucky, USA, 1971
Pages: 94
Price: 1500 RSD
Literary Criticism

This book is truly a distinctive volume. In it the internationally known Argentinian writer and critic, Jorge Luis Borges, offers a fresh and personal view of the literature of the United States. He touches not only upon most of the major works and writers but also upon such manifestations of popular culture as the western, the detective story, science fiction, and even the oral poetry of the American Indian. What began as a guide to study for his Argentinian students becomes for Americans a fresh and many-faceted view of their literature.

227. Falk, Doris V.: “Eugene O’Neil and the Tragic Tension“ (Š – 1077; DB – 00-489)
Publisher: Rutgers University Press, USA, 1958
Pages: 211
Price: 600
Literary Criticism

Eugene O’Neil, the man who, more than any other in America, gave the theater a new impetus and a new integrity, is still unexplained, unknown. This book is an interpretation of his plays, chronologically, in which the skills of traditional literary amd dramatic criticism are supplemented by the theories of modernpsychoanalytical techniques. Miss Falk’s analysis, more than anything heretofore written, explains O’Neil’s preoccupation with the “tragic tension“ – the pull of opposites: good and evil, joy and suffering, the will to live and the wish to die. The author shos that the conflicts in O’Neill’s own mind gave power and meaning to his expression of human suffering.

Pages: 383
Price: 600 RSD
Literary Criticism

This section on the USA covers literature from the early colonial writers to the present day. American culture tends to be viewed as a whole and not merely in its literary expression: many entries have therefore been devoted to writers outside the strictly literary field, including politicians, philosophers and sociologists. The Latin American Section gives comprehensive coverage to a much less familiar literature, now increasingly alive an dthe subject of rapidly growing interest.

229. Cowan, Michael H: “City of the West“  - Emerson, America and Urban Metaphore(Š – 1063; B – 00-485)
Publisher: Yale University Press, USA, 1967
Pages: 284
Price: 1000 RSD
Literary Criticism

Using essays, journals, and letters – including the recently publisherd early journals – Mr. Cowan reveals the subtle and striking ways in which Emerson forced traditional language to test and be tested by a new context of american experience. He also enalyzed Emerson’s self-dramatized roles of poetic experimenter, whose tools are the conflicting facts, ideas, and words of his era, and Romantic prophet, whose goal is to reconcile those conflicts. Extensive references to other writers, including Cooper, Hawthorne, Melville, and Thoreau, suggest that Emerson’s use of urban metaphor may point toward a literary approach that is both American and Romantic.

In a single, comprehensive volume Peter Conn summarizes the distinctive achievements of the novelists, poets, playwrights, and prose writers who have produced Alerica’s literary heritage. While the focus is on literary texts, the book’s seven chapters also locate American writing in relevant historical and cultural contexts.
Chronological tables and a guide to further reading also enhance the book’s value. With its lively and readable text and its exceptional range of illustrations, this major new book will appeal to everyone interested in the story of American literature.

He was on the seventh-floor stairwellwhen the tower collapsed , and woke to find himself buried on teh landing between the second and fourth floors. This is the story of how pitch Picciotto led the survivors to safety.

Publisher: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, New York, 1983
Pages: 237
Price: 1200 RSD

The years Bertolt Brecht spent in exile from Germany were trying, fascinating ones. Although thew have been documented, they have never been explored, especially without the stolid academic reverence that often shields our greatest artists and tehir work from fresh and candid insight. Brecht’s journey – personal and artistic – is here fully explored, from the time he left for Finland with his wife (and two mistresses) until his return from America to Switzerland. The years he spent in Hollywood with the remarkable community of artists that developed there – included were Heinrich and Thomas Mann, Lion Feuchtwanger, Alfred Doblin, Christopher Isherwood, George Cukor, Harold Clurman, Arnold Schobberg – are described in detail, as are Brecht’s collaborations with Fritz Lang, Kurt Weill, and others, and his role as the Hollywood Eleventh at the infamous HCUA hearings. His experiences in exile changed his thinking and his art.

Publisher: Brockhampton Press, London, 1998
Pages: 286
Price: 2000 RSD

There is no doubt that Adolf Hitler was able to call upon some masterful generals and administrators – Guderian, Rommel, Kesselring and more – but was Herman Goring, World War One aviation ace and early convert to the Nazi cause, one of these or a simple seeker after power and glory who did not possess the character or intelligence to advance anything other than his own wealth? The story tells how Goring readily shared in the progress of teh Reich, accepting power and delighting in the prestige but, a sHitler’s true policies showed through, as other co-leaders emerged and as the war turned against Germany, how he became disenchanted with the quest, began to lose interest and control, and hid away in unbelievable luxury while the Nazi dream expired.

Publisher: The MacMillan Company; New York, 1965
Pages: 274
Price: 1000 RSD

Here is a practical, straight-from-the –shoulder guide to survival and success at every echelon. This is not a business-school text of ivory-tower theories. It is the bluntly frank, fact-filled product of the author’s personal experience, not only as a top executive, but as counselor to the senior managements of more than a hundred of the nation’s biggest corporations. In this book you will find specific examples of the kinds of situations and personalities that can prove decisive in your career. They cover the entire executive hierarchy, from the promising young man who compromised his future by taking his superior’s advice that they “work together otside channels“ to the “absolute monarch“ of a giant mail-order firm who went through sexty-five vice-presidents because they questioned his infallibility.

Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Pages: 172

The Essential Anatomy of Britain is a brisk and personal survey of the power-structure of Britain at the time, as it faced a crisis in its relationship with Europe – culminating in the exclusion of sterling from the Exchange Rate Mechanism in September 1992.
It looks at the British predicament from the viewpoint of a reporter and chronicler who has been watching British and continental developments over three decades. It is written with a vivid sense of involvement, describing aspects of contemporary Britain – a Tory election party, a royal reception, an annual meeting at Lloyd’s, a session of the European Parliament or a visit to the Channel Tunnel – and then analyzing the forces behind them.

In this magnificent book, Bartle Bull charts the history of the African safari from the first great expedition of 1836, as Cornwallis Harris crossed the Transvaal with an ox-wagon, to the guides of today, carrying on their tradition in the swamps of Tanzania and the forests of Ethiopia.
Capturing the timeless beauty and excitement of the African bush, Bull tells of the men and women who made this land their home, among them Frederick Courtenay Selous, Beryl markham, Isak Dinesen and Bror Blixen, of the clients like Theodore Roosevelt and teh Princeof Wales, of the magnificent animals they stalked and of the Africans who made their expeditions possible.

Publisher: Bounty Books, London, 2007
Pages: 154
Price: 1900 RSD

This book is a record of 56 British birds that may still be seen and heard in spite of progressive urbanisation and the use of highly toxic chemicals in agriculture, which has caused havoc among such varied species as the chaffinch, the green woodpecker and the kestrel – as catastrophic as the bird-killing winter of 1962-3. Fortunately, the British bird population seems to be remarkably resilient. Apart from the purely aesthetic appeal of the illustrations, it is hoped “that the pictures and text together may form a reference book which will not only lead to the identification of some of our commonest birds, but also stimulate interest in  their habits and behaviour.

In the detailed descriptions and criticism of the outstanding marques the famous names of Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, Sunbeam, Mercedes and Frazer Nash naturally appear, and alongside them such less familiar ones as Ballot, Hispano-Suiza, Stutz, Hotchkiss, Deusenberg and many others. The chapter on competition motoring in the Vintage era will be of particular interest to all followers of motor sport.

Publisher: The World Publishing Co., Cleveland (USA), 1943
Pages: 712
Price: 800 RSD

This is the brilliant, stormy history of Eugene Witla, and artist of uncertain temperament and certain talent. Eugene grew up during an era when old conventions began to disappear, when the moral and social rigidity which had outwardly dominated Victorian society was fast giving way to a new freedom; and his life was to follow the pattern created by the conflicting forces which made up this era.
Eugene expresses his inward confusion in his erratic love affairs and in his work. The women with whom he becomes involved bring him temporary content, but leave him struggling nor does he find complete satisfaction in his art, though he becomessuccessful and wealthy through it. It is only when life has brought him tragedy and grief and the terror of loneliness that he finds in part an answer to his own confusion.

243. Lydon, John: “Rotten“ (Š – 1551; DB – 00-149)
Publisher: Plexus Publishing, Ltd., London, 2003
Pages: 329
Price: 1500 RSD

Punk has been romanticised and embalmed in various media. A youth revolt that became a worldwide afshion statement,mpunk’s idols were the Sex Pistols, and Johnny Rotten was its sneering Antichrist.
Nearly three decades later, John Lydon looks back at himself, the Pistols and the “no future“ disaffection of the time. Much more than just a rock autobiography, Rotten is an oral history of punk: at once angry, wittyhonest, poignant and crackling with energy. Malcolm McLaren, Sid Vicious, Chrissie Hynde, Billy Idol, Britain in the late seventies, the Pistols’ explosion onto the moribund music scene and their implosion under the pressures of superstardom – all these and more are dissected with Lydon’s scalpel-sharp pen, in perhaps the best book ever written about music and youth culture, by one of its most notorious figures.

244. Poundstone, William: “Labyrinths of Reason“ – Paradox, Puzzles and the Frailty of Knowledge (Š – 2716; DB – 03-646)
Publisher: Anchor Books, Doubleday; New York, London, 1964
Pages: 274
Price: 1200 RSD

A paradox is a series of logical premises that leads to a conclusion that contradicts the premises themselves. The phenomenon is as old as history, but in recent years scientists and philosophers have been studying several new paradoxes with increased intensity. These paradoxes raise the essential question of philosophy, science and all human experience: How do we know what we know?
In Labyrinths of Reason, William Poundstone takes us on an astonishing intellectual voyage into realms of delightful uncertainty. The paradoxes he explores are not hard to understand. He makes us think about black holes and time travel, coded manuscripts and unbreakable codes. Witty, sharply intelligent, and consistently provocative, this book will take you to the cutting edge of philosophical and scientific thought.

245. Vonnegut, Mark: “Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness Only More So“ (Š – 2532; DB – 03-528)
Publisher: Delacorte Press, New York, 2010
Pages: 203
Price: 1200 RSD

Here is Mark’s childhood spent as a son of a struggling writer in a house that eventually held seven children after his aunt and uncle died and left four orphans. And here is the world after Mark was released from a mental hospital to find his family forever altered. At the late age of twenty-eight – and after nineteen rejections – Mark was accepted to Harvard Medical School, where he gained purpose, a life, and some control over his condition.
The brilliantly evoked events of Mark Vonnegut’s life are at once perfectly unique and achingly relatable. There are the manic episodes, during which he felt burdened with saving the world, juxtaposed against the real-world responsibilities of running a pediatric practice. At times he felt that his parents’ lives would improve if onlythew had a few hundred more bucks in their bank account, while at other points his father’s fame merely heightened expectations that he be better, funnier (and crazier) than the average person.

246. Paytress, Mark:“The Rolling Stones – Off the Record“ (Š – 1891; DB – 06-315)
Publisher: Omnibuss Press, London, 2003
Pages: 459
Price: 2000 RSD

Here is a portrait of The Rolling Stones as they really were – rebels and iconoclasts right from the start. If the Beatles came over cheeky and irreverent, the early Stones looked and sounded more like a terrorist group carrying musical instruments. Mick and the boys rarely gave reassuring interviews to the press and all of the quotes in this book reflect the group’s uncompromising views exactly as expressed at the time.
Music journalist and long-time Stones observer Mark Paytress has captured the exact flavour of the times by using only contemporary quotes and organizing them to tell a riveting story. The result is a brilliant verbal documentary of British pop’s most outrageous and exciting band at a time when youth was grabbing the reigns of power from an increasingly uneasy establishment.

Stories that, with this volume, see the culminationn of his lively and magisterial – and sometime smischievous – history of our nation.

Publisher: Cardinal, London, 1978
Pages: 362
Price: 800 RSD

Although E. M. Forster was born in the Victorian era, amongst future Bloomsbury intellectuals at Cambridge he developed a fresh set of values which were to guide his life and make him one of this century’s most highly regarded novelists. He did not die until 1970 but he had written the six novels on which his reputation rests by 1924, the year in which his masterpiece  A PASSAGE TO INDIA was published.  Forster’s subsequent career as literary critic, political commentator,e nemy of censorship and supporter of civil liberties identified him as keeper of the liberal conscience. His belief in the primacy of personal relations was demonstrated by long and intimate friendships which ignored barriers of sex, race and class.

250. Bunuel, Luis: “My Last Breath“ (Š – 1867; DB – 06-324)
Publisher: Vintage, London, 1994
Pages: 256
Price: 1100 RSD

A master film maker, intimidable, and unrelenting in his assault on bourgeois values. Bunuel’s method is free from all artifice, and his honesty and humour are too extreme to accept any compromise in exposing our deceit and our decadence. Like Pasolini, his work offers a remarkably sophisticated political analysis, but remains based in the essentially peasant values of storytelling, and the purposefully unsystematic supervisions of laughter.
Bunuel’s many award-winning films include Belle du Jour, Nazarin, Los Olvidados, The Discreet Charm pf the Bourgeoisie and That Obscure Object of Desire. Madrid, Paris, Hollywood, New York and Mexico; Slavador Dali, Lorca, Andre Breton, Max Ernst, Miro and Charlie Chaplin all feature in this superb autobiography of Bunuel’s extraordinary career.

Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1965
Pages: 251
Price: 1000 RSD

Drake has long been one of the Gods in English pantheon – too long, perhaps, so that no one has attempted to see the man as he really was. In this book Erle Bradford, while denying that he has found out anything new about the great sailor, believes that he has added a “third dimension“ to the figure of Queen Elisabeth’s greatest fighting admiral. Where Nelson has possibly been overpraised (because he was a “romantic“ figure) Drake has been relegated to stories of adventure that are told to children. Drake, in fact, was a realist – a self-made man from humble stock, who managed to rise to the top in the dangerous and difficult Elisabethan world.

252. O’Hara, John: “The Horse Knows the Way“ (Š – 1304; DB – 00-330)
Publisher: The Cresset Press, London, 1965
Pages: 408
Price: 800 RSD

Although John O’Hara was honoured  (like Dreiser, Mann, Hemingway and Huxley before him) by the award of the gold medal of the American Academy of arts and Letters for his novels, there had long been a tendency to regard and admire him primarily as a master of the short story of contemporary American business and professional life. The demand for these stories (doubtless stimulated by their regular appearance in The New Yorker) had been insatioable and to cope with it he produced no less than four collections in as many years: Assembly (1962), The Cape Cod Lighter (1963), The Hat on the Bed (1964), and this, the latest one, which contains 28 new stories and brings his total output during these prodigiously fertile years to 101.

Pages: 250
Price: 1200 RSD

This is the first full history of the police and crime in the City of London. Beginning with the Privy Pykers nailed by the ears to the Cheapside pillory, Donald Rumbelow shows how, in spite of being hamstrung by the powerful ward committees  and by the unwillingness of the citizens to help them, teh City Marshals tried to suppress teh sanctuarx men and swaggering bullies of Stuart and Hanoverian London. Backing them were the watchmen, old weak men, generally the cheapest labour that could be hired, who at night wandered through the streets with rusty halberds in their hands, lighting lords to brothels or taking bribes, or sleeping in their watch boxes.

“When china wakes it will shake the world“, Napoleon predicted, and at last China is waking. On the eve of teh twenty-first century, its economy is rapidly outstripping those of the Unitd States and Japan, and a baby born today in Shanghai is expected to live two years longer than one born in New York City.
In this heroically researched book, husband-and-wife reporters Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl Wudunn illuminate bith the Chinese boom-state and the tottering dictatorship. With the same vigor and empathy that won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism, they travel from the highlands of Tibet to the bloody environs of Tiananmen Square and produce a canvas that takes in peasants and  real estate speculators, dissidents and corrupt officials. Insightful, affecting and bursting with color on every page, China Wakes is an exemplary work of reportage.

The tales of King Arthur, the knights of the Round Table, and the quest for the Holy Grail are the best-known  British myths. But these are only a part of a rich tradition of mythology, the origins of which lie deep in the early history and ancient religions of the British Isles.
Michael Senior distinguishes the most important elements in the development of myths, describes how the stories evolved and were embellished over the years in the Mabinogion, Geoffrey of Monmouth’s History of the Kings of Britain, and Malory’s Morte d’Arthur, and discusses the legendary links with specific places such as Glastonbury, Tintagel, and South Cadbury.
Manuscripts and paintings of the events and legends, and the sites discussed are illustrated in over 80 evocative colour and black-and-white photographs, giving the reader a vivid impression of the background of Britain’s mythology.

On august 5 of that year he met Nathaniel Hawthorne, an experience which was to have an emotional and artistic impact for the rest of his life. Hawthorne was the kind of father or brother whom Melville the man and the orphans in his early fiction had been searching for. The quest in art and life proved unending, continuing into tthe pages of Billy Budd, Sailor, which was written in his last years.
