REVIEW
Use From the Back Cover Hiroshima Notes is a moving statement from Japan's most celebrated living writer on the meaning of the Hiroshima bombing and its terrible legacy. Kenzaburo Oe's account of the lives of the many victims of Hiroshima - the young, the old, women and children - and the valiant efforts of the doctors who care for them, both immediately after the atomic blast and in the years to come, reveals the horrific extent of the devastation wrought. In Hiroshima Notes, Oe offers a sensitive portrayal of the people of the city - the 'human face' in the midst of atomic destruction. The lives Oe describes and his insights into the nature of human dignity are an indictment of the Nuclear Age as powerful as the ruins in the Hiroshima Peace Park.

Review
This book is a must-have for everyone who enjoyed Foyle's Philavery. Like its predecessor, it brings together a plethora of words which appeal on account of their unusual sounds and meanings and which hint at the rich history of the English language. In this second collection, even more emphasis is given to the fascinating stories behind these weird and wonderful words.

Granta Books; First UK Edition (7 Mar. 2005)
Award-winning historian Steven Ozment gives us the fullest portrait possible of the German nation, holding a mirror up to an entire civilization- one that has been alternately Western Europe's most successful and most perilous. Taking us from the tribes of the Roman Empire and the medieval dynasties to the fall of the Berlin Wall and reunification, Ozment shows that the Germans are a people who desire national unity yet have kept themselves from it by aligning with autocratic territorial governments and regional cultures. From Luther, Kant, Goethe, and Beethoven to Marx, Einstein and Hitler, the country's leading figures have always tried to become more than ordinary mortals. In fact, Germans living centuries apart have shared in different ways a common defining experience: a convergence of external provocation and wounded pride, and an ability to exercise great power in response to both. Ozment brilliantly… Read More
