Calamities of Exile: Three Nonfiction Novellas - gebunden oder broschiert

ISBN: 0226893936

[SR: 2731022], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780226893938], University of Chicago Press, University of Chicago Press, Book, [PU: University of Chicago Press], University of Chicago Press, The three essays in this volume, each long enough to be referred to as a nonfiction novella, originally appeared in the New Yorker, where Weschler is a staff writer. They engage directly with the theme of political exile by delving into the lives of three exiles: South African author Breyten Breytenbach, who would attempt to re-enter the country to participate more actively in the struggle against apartheid, only to be captured and imprisoned; Kanan Makiya, an Iraqi whose Republic of Fear offered many Westerners their first in-depth knowledge of Saddam Hussein's regime; and Jan Karan, a participant in the 1968 revolution in Prague who, after years of running a smuggling operation in and out of Czechoslovakia, would return to his liberated homeland only to be denounced for alleged collaboration with its Communist oppressors. Lawrence Weschler is one of the late 20th century's best journalists, a master of the profile format. He offers the reader tremendous amounts of information, including extensive historical backgrounds, without ever sacrificing any of the immediacy or clarity of his prose. Given that his three subjects have each fought against oppressive regimes, it would be easy to portray them as simplistic heroes, but Weschler takes great pains to show the full complexities of their characters, even when it casts them in a less than flattering light. By reading Calamities of Exile, you will learn much about international politics, but, more importantly, you will learn much about people. --Ron Hogan, Amazon.com , 758952, Africa, 758932, Countries & Regions, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758954, Middle East, 758932, Countries & Regions, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758928, Social & Urban History, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 759012, Countries & Regions, 268041, Political, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 771710, Political History, 772144, Anarchism, 772052, Democracy, 275905, Fascism & Nazism, 772146, Marxism & Communism, 772054, Nationalism, 772138, Politicians, 275899, Revolutions & Coups, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922510, Reference, 922508, History & Philosophy, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 496616, Political Violence, 275890, Civil Liberties & Political Activism, 275870, Government & Politics, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275901, Political Science & Ideology, 275902, Anarchism, 275903, Communism & Marxism, 275904, Conservatism, 275918, Democracy, 275905, Fascism & Nazism, 275908, Liberalism, 275909, Nationalism, 275914, Political Science, 275910, Socialism, 275870, Government & Politics, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275915, Political Structure & Processes, 275917, Constitution: Government & the State, 275919, Elections & Referendums, 275870, Government & Politics, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276522, Sociology, 496634, Family & Social Groups, 276303, Law & Disorder, 496644, Methodology & Research, 276447, Population & Demography, 276482, Social Issues, 276530, Sociological Theories, 496640, Sociology of Work, 276411, Social Sciences, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 199 pages. Retrospective collection of novella-like accounts. One of the most important literary events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the Softcover Edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only by a University Press. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Lawrence Weschler's "Calamities of Exile". Nonfiction novellas on exile. Possibly the protean and indefatigable Lawrence Weschler's best book. "The three essays engage directly with the theme of political exile by delving into the lives of three exiles: South African author Breyten Breytenbach, who would attempt to re-enter the country to participate more actively in the struggle against apartheid, only to be captured and imprisoned; Kanan Makiya, an Iraqi whose 'Republic of Fear' offered many Westerners their first in-depth knowledge of Saddam Hussein's regime; and Jan Karan, a participant in the 1968 Revolution in Prague who, after years of running a smuggling operation in and out of Czechoslovakia, would return to his liberated homeland only to be denounced for alleged collaboration with its Communist oppressors.

You will learn much about international politics but more important, you will learn much about people" (Ron Hogan). "His thorough accounting of the men's covert operations, assumed identities, and strained relationships with fathers, wives, and colleagues creates a disturbing triptych of the perils of totalitarianism" (The New York Times). An absolute "must-have" title for Lawrence Weschler collectors. <b><i> This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. </b></i> One of the finest journalist/writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LAWRENCE WESCHLER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

"These three essays, these novellas--call them what you will--are extraordinary tales about excruciating modern themes: individual responsibility, national identity, and courage. In each case, the reader has to ask himself: What would I have done? 3 halftones.
