READING: Yanis Varoufakis was 162 onvergetelijke dagen minister van Financiën van Griekenland. Wat we zagen van zijn onderhandelingen over de Griekse schuldencrisis met de Europese Commissie, het IMF en de Europese Bank was al intens. Wat we niet te zien kregen waren de dreigementen, verborgen agenda’s, chantage en verraad. In Volwassenen onder elkaar onthult Varoufakis álles. Een bloedstollende, waargebeurde thriller over hoe de macht werkelijk wordt uitgespeeld in Europa. Weergaloos schrijft Varoufakis over wat hij persoonlijk moest ondervinden: dat de kern van het Europese systeem door en door verrot is.

READING: The Arab Revolt against the Turks in World War One was, in the words of T.E. Lawrence, 'a sideshow of a sideshow'. Amidst the slaughter in European trenches, the Western combatants paid scant attention to the Middle Eastern theatre. As a result, the conflict was shaped to a remarkable degree by a small handful of adventurers and low-level officers far removed from the corridors of power. At the centre of it all was Lawrence. In early 1914 he was an archaeologist excavating ruins in the sands of Syria; by 1917 he was battling both the enemy and his own government to bring about the vision he had for the Arab people. Operating in the Middle East at the same time, but to wildly different ends, were three other important players: a German attaché, an American oilman and a committed Zionist. The intertwined paths of these four young men - the schemes they put in place, the battles they fought, the betrayals they endured and committed - mirror the grandeur, intrigue and tragedy of the war in the desert.

READING: In 1918, as the First World War ravaged the European continent, young American journalist Lowell Thomas traveled to the Ottoman Empire to report on the revolts breaking out as an indirect result of the savage European conflict. While in Jerusalem, he met and struck up a friendship with the infamous young British captain, T.E. Lawrence. Based on his travels and interviews with Lawrence, Thomas wrote the now classic With Lawrence in Arabia, the book that spawned the Lawrence of Arabia legend and served as the basis for the award-winning 1961 film of the same name. Fantastically paced with equal measures of fact and adventure, Thomas narrates the exploits of the infamous British agent who against all odds managed to join several factious Arabian tribes into a single combat unit. With Lawrence in command, this guerilla force would go on to defeat the great Turkish Army and ensure the eventual demise of the previously impenetrable Ottoman Empire. On the sweeping and the exotic Arabian desert that serves as the setting for this epic account, Thomas brings to life dozens of great historical figures including Emir Feisel, King Hussein I of Hedjaz, British General Edmund Alleby, and Lawrence, the enigmatic, “modern knight of Arabia.” With new forewords by modern explorers, this Explorer’s Club Classic edition of With Lawrence in Arabia is a must-have for every history buff and arm-chair adventurer.

READING: Een fascinerende reconstructie van de ontdekkingstocht naar de wereldberoemde Machu Picchu! Aan het begin van de vorige eeuw vochten avonturiers en ontdekkingsreizigers voor de laatste plaatsen in de geschiedenis boeken. Bijna heel de wereld was in kaart gebracht en slechts aan de meest onbereikbare plekken (de k2, Kangchenjunga, de Noord- en Zuidpool) viel nog eer te behalen. De jonge Amerikaanse universiteitsleraar Hiram Bingham III had zijn pijlen gericht op een ander doel: een verborgen stad in het Andesgebergte in Peru. Hij slaagde. Al op zijn eerste reis in 1911 door de jungle van de Inca's vond hij de nu wereldberoemde Machu Picchu. Bij terugkomst in Amerika werd de ontdekkingsreiziger onthaald als een held, en het speciaal aan hem gewijde nummer van National Geographic Magazine brak alle verkoopcijfers. In de eeuw die volgde werd er echter flink getwijfeld aan de reputatie van Bingham: was hij wel echt de eerste, en waarom nam hij zo veel kunstvoorwerpen mee naar Amerika? Mark Adams is redacteur bij diverse reismagazines, maar ging zelf nooit op reis. Tot het moment kwam (noem het een midlifecrisis) om een tocht in de voetsporen van Bingham te maken. Samen met een eigenwijze, antisociale Australiër die alles over de Inca's weet en een groepje gidsen die alleen maar Quechua spreken en cocabladeren kauwen, wandelt Adams door de Peruaanse jungle. Als lezer ga je met hem mee, en leer je en passant van alles over Machu Picchu, Bingham, Peru toen en nu, ontdekkingsreizigers, astrologie en de Inca's.

READING: T. E. Shaw, better known as Lawrence of Arabia, was one of the most romantic, heroic, and enigmatic figures of his day. The subject of myth and hagiography, he was equally accomplished in several fields—as archaeologist, diplomat, writer, and soldier—and he worked throughout World War I and after in the Middle East in efforts to promote independent Arab states. His autobiography Seven Pillars of Wisdom is one of the greatest works of its kind. The esteemed military historian B. H. Liddell Hart wrote this study of Lawrence in order to pierce the clouds of legend. He discussed Lawrence’s Oxford days, his experiences as an intelligence officer in Egypt, and in particular the tactics of guerrilla warfare he practiced so effectively against the large Turkish armies during World War I. Liddell Hart was one of the few to give Lawrence his full justice as both a man and a brilliant soldier. Long out-of-print, this book unravels the many puzzling features of Lawrence’s story and restores him to his proper place as one of the twentieth century’s heroic, but very human, figures.

READING: Een briljante misleidingsoperatie die het verloop van de oorlog DRASTISCH veranderde Op 30 april 1943 ziet een visser vlak voor de Spaanse kust een lijk drijven. Eenmaal aan land gebracht wordt het lichaam geïdentificeerd als de Britse officier William Martin van de Royal Marines. Een leren aktetas die aan zijn riem is vastgemaakt bevat zeer geheime documenten over de invasieplannen van de geallieerden. Majoor Martin heeft echter nooit bestaan. Het lichaam was van een overleden zwerver uit Wales en alle documenten zijn vervalst. Operatie Mincemeat vertelt het ongelooflijke verhaal van een uitzonderlijke misleidingsoperatie, waar de Duitsers met open ogen intrapten. Dankzij deze briljante leugen slaagde de geallieerde landing op Sicilië en werd een begin gemaakt met de bevrijding van West-Europa. Ben Macintyre (1963) is historicus en columnist bij The Times. Zijn zeer succesvolle geschiedenisthrillers worden in meer dan 15 landen gepubliceerd, waaronder Spanje, Duitsland en de Verenigde Staten. In Nederland verscheen ook Agent Zigzag. Ben Macintyre woont en werkt in Londen. `Grandioos. Prachtig verteld, meeslepend en vaak zeer aangrijpend. John le Carré `Macintyre s neus voor een fantastisch verhaal is die van de journalist, zijn verteltechniek is die van de romanschrijver. Mail on Sunday `Briljant en bijna belachelijk onderhoudend.

READING: Combining ethnography, film criticism, and his extensive knowledge of the Middle East, Steven C. Caton presents an innovative and fascinating examination of the classic film, Lawrence of Arabia. Caton is interested in why this epic film has been so compelling for so many people for more than three decades. In seeking an answer he draws from situations in his own life, biographies of the film's key participants, and analyses of issues relating to class, gender, colonialism, and cultural differences. The result is a many-prismed book that poses important questions of ethnographic representation and the discourse of power. Caton's approach is dialectical, and his readings of the film are situated within different historical periods, from the early 1960s to the present. Among the subjects he highlights are travel and colonialism in fieldwork and filmmaking, orientalism in the representation of the Other, and the film's ambiguous handling of masculinity and homosexuality. Caton looks at his own reactions to the film at various stages in his life and offers a thought-provoking account of the film's reception by today's high school and college students.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Rarely is a book published that revises our understanding of an entire world region and the history that has defined it. This groundbreaking volume makes just such a contribution. Neil Faulkner draws on ten years of field research to offer the first truly multidisciplinary history of the conflicts that raged in Sinai, Arabia, Palestine, and Syria during the First World War. In Lawrence of Arabia’s War, the author rewrites the history of T. E. Lawrence’s legendary military campaigns in the context of the Arab Revolt. He explores the intersections among the declining Ottoman Empire, the Bedouin tribes, nascent Arab nationalism, and Western imperial ambition. The book provides a new analysis of Ottoman resilience in the face of modern industrialized warfare, and it assesses the relative weight of conventional operations in Palestine and irregular warfare in Syria. Faulkner thus reassesses the historic roots of today’s divided, fractious, war-torn Middle East.

READING: Een leven zonder hypotheek en energierekeningen leek me wel aantrekkelijk... Tijdens een vakantie leert Marguerite van Geldermalsen de Jordaanse souvenirverkoper Mohammad Abdallah Othman kennen. Ze worden verliefd, trouwen en nemen hun intrek in een van de eeuwenoude grotten van Petra. Hun huis is tweeduizend jaar oud, uitgehakt in de rode rotswand. Marguerite wordt er de lokale verpleegkundige, maar ze leidt verder het leven van elke Bedoeïenenvrouw: ze kookt boven open vuur, haalt water met de ezel, danst tijdens huwelijksfeesten en ontbijt buiten in de opkomende zon. Marguerite en Mohammad krijgen drie kinderen en zijn volmaakt gelukkig. Aan dit sprookje komt pas een eind wanneer Mohammad overlijdt, na ruim twintig jaar huwelijk. In Ik woonde in een grot vertelt Marguerite Geldermalsen openhartig over haar bijzondere leven en gunt ze de lezer een kijkje in het dagelijks leven van de Bedoeïenen. `Ik woonde in een grot is een monument voor haar man, de Bedoeïenen en Petra.’ NOUVEAU

READING: Travels in Arabia Deserta, originally published in 1888, is a two-volume set which describes English poet Charles Doughty's extensive travels through the Arabian deserts and the discoveries he made there. The work became well-regarded for its beautiful prose as well as its extensiveness, which made it a benchmark of ambitious travel writing in the early 20th century. Written in the style of the King James Bible, the text is extravagant and creative. In the 1920's, it was discovered by British Army Officer T.E. Lawrence, who spurred the book's republication, this time with an introduction from Lawrence. The book has been in and out of print since then, but the Cosimo edition is a rare 1921 reprint, and includes the Lawrence introduction. Volume I includes T.E. Lawrence's Introduction, as well as accounts of Doughty's treks to Mecca, Ammon and Moab, the Mountain of Edom, Arabia, the Passage of the Harra, Teyma, and more. He also describes nomad life in the desert and ancient stories, peoples, and myths connected with his travels. CHARLES MONTAGU DOUGHTY (1843-1926) was an English poet and writer born in Theberton Hall, Saxmundham, Suffolk. He attended King's College London and graduated from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge in 1864. Among this author's works are an epic poem in six volumes titled The Dawn in Britain, published in 1906, and his well-known Travels in Arabia Deserta, for which he received much praise.

READING: It is 1916. The Allies are struggling in the Great War. The Ottoman Sultan calls for a pan-Islamic jihad against all non-Muslims except Germans. But Sharif Husein, ruler of the holy city of Mecca, is smarting under Turkish rule, fomenting Arab nationalism and lobbying the British to support him. It seems to the British a good idea secretly to encourage an Arab revolt. Setting the Desert on Fire is a masterly account of this key moment made legendary by T. E. Lawrence, but here filled with a wide range of characters including the British Prime Minister Lloyd George, whose desire to capture 'Jerusalem by Christmas' had consequences that reverberate to this day.

READING: A new biography of Lawrence of Arabia T.E. Lawrence is one of the most enigmatic characters in British history. At the outbreak of the First World War he was working as an archaeologist in the Middle East. He had no military training at all, and a strong distrust of politicians and senior officers alike. And yet he succeeded in a task where all these people had failed: not only did he unite the Arab nation - a nation at perpetual war with itself - but he also led them to victory against the Ottoman Empire. How he managed to achieve these incredible feats has fascinated and confounded historians ever since. The myths that have grown up around this remarkable man have been enhanced by the untruths Lawrence himself propagated. He was never captured and tortured by the Turks as he claimed, neither was he the first to target Ottoman troops by dynamiting their trains. And yet the truth is every bit as compelling as the fiction. He was far more ruthless than he portrayed himself, and the battles he fought were every bit as barbarous as those fought by his Ottoman enemies. He was also strangely determined not to take credit for his achievements: when offered the VC at Buckingham Palace he refused it, leaving the king holding the box. This brand new biography by the author of RORKE'S DRIFT uses primary sources to uncover the truth from all the fictions that surround this legendary man. It covers the actualities of the war Lawrence fought in greater detail than ever before, and also describes what happened to Lawrence after the war.
