Hier liegen ergänzend zu der früher erschienenen Sammlung ´´Sagen aus Zwickau´´ auch die Sagen des Zwickauer Landes vor, aus Crimmitschau und Werdau, Hartenstein, Kirchberg, Wildenfels-Wiesenburg und Umgebung, aus dem Mülsengrund und um Zwickau herum. Sie berichten von der Entstehung von Dörfern und Städten, von seltsamen Ereignissen aus der bewegten Geschichte, von Spuk und Wunderzeichen und den großen und kleinen Schwächen der Menschen. Ob es dabei um eine Flucht aus dem Kloster Frankenhausen geht, ob von der Vollmondgesellschaft berichtet wird, ob sich ein Reiter ohne Kopf bei Fraureuth sehen lässt, es die Wunderblume vom Rocksengrund zu entdecken gilt oder nur das sagenhafte Wetter die Menschen bewegt, an kurzweilig-spannender Unterhaltung ist kein Mangel.
Jews and Palestinians each claim it, and more blood has been shed over this small Mediterranean area than any other in the world. ´´Truth is stranger than fiction,´´ and it is eloquently demonstrated in the history of Israel. The story of the Jews is high drama with a divine component, but much of the plot has been veiled. In retrospect, one can see their powerful influence throughout eastern and western history, swaying world events, building up and bringing down kingdoms and dominions. World War I, for instance, has been called a war without rationale; but factor in the Jews, and a flood of meaning rushes in. The same could be said of the Renaissance, the discovery of America, and most conspicuously, World War II. Fortunately, Jewish historians have preserved a vast literature on their people´s tumultuous history, and the bitter details are indispensable if we are to rightly understand the explosive tensions in the Middle East today. This is an update of Stanley Ellisen´s 1991 best-selling book examining Middle East history from a biblical perspective. In addition to offering perspective on recent events, Who Owns the Land? traces the journey of the Jewish people through history and explains the events that have led to their determined stand in Palestine today. Describes the numerous Jewish migrations and expulsions, the emergence of Zionism, World War II and the Holocaust, and a biblical view of the Jews´ promised restoration. 1. Language: English.

In the 1930s, in the wake of the Nazi ascendancy in Germany, a wave of vicious anti-Semitism swept Europe, as Jews became outcasts in their own lands. As they clamored to escape persecution, the world turned a blind eye to their plight. One man, Isaac Steinberg, had a vision of leading his people from the holocaust to a new paradise on the other side of the world. His enthusiastic and resolute efforts to realize his vision left large cracks in the smug Anglocentrism that guarded his unpromised land. This lively account of the little-known Kimberley Jewish settlement scheme provides a fascinating insight into a series of events that came very close to changing the course of Australian history. 1.

From York to Whitby, from London to Sutton Hoo, from Edinburgh to Anglesey and from Hadrian´s Wall to Loch Tay, each of his ten walk narratives forms a portrait of a Britain of fort and fyrd, crypt and crannog, church and causeway, holy well and memorial stone. 1.

The Crusades is an authoritative, accessible single-volume history of the brutal struggle for the Holy Land in the Middle Ages. Thomas Asbridge - a renowned historian who writes with ´´maximum vividness´´ (Joan Acocella, The New Yorker) - covers the years 1095 to 1291 in this big, ambitious, listenable account of one of the most fascinating periods in history. From Richard the Lionheart to the mighty Saladin, from the emperors of Byzantium to the Knights Templar, Asbridge´s book is a magnificent epic of holy war between the Christian and Islamic worlds, full of adventure, intrigue, and sweeping grandeur. 1.
