The book, which enjoyed immense popularity in the years before World War I, is an early example of the espionage novel and was extremely influential in the genre of spy fiction. It has been made into both a film and TV film. The novel "owes a lot to the wonderful adventure novels of writers like Rider Haggard, that were a staple of Victorian Britain". It was a spy novel that "established a formula that included a mass of verifiable detail, which gave authenticity to the story - the same ploy that would be used so well by John Buchan, Ian Fleming, John le Carré and many others."

First published in 1903, The Riddle of the Sands, by Erskine Childers, is one of the earliest examples of a spy novel in English, and it has been extremely influential on the genre since. It is also one of the best-known tales of yacht fighting. This unusual combination has always intrigued Maldwin Drummond, who explores in The Riddle the book's two main themes: the life of the Victorian small boat sailor and the politics of defense prior to World War I. In this book, Drummond includes details of Childers's own sailing experiences and offers a detailed account of the reception of the book in official circles at the time. Drummond does her own detective work to highlight Childers's urgent message that Germany was preparing to invade England and that the British were not aware of any such plan. This new edition of the definitive study of the writing of The Riddle of the Sands is updated here with beautiful illustrations by Martin Mackrill.

Childers's lone masterpiece, The Riddle of the Sands, considered the first modern spy thriller, is recognisable as the brilliant forerunner of the realism of Graham Greene and John le Carre. Its unique flavour comes from its fine characterization, richly authentic background of inshore sailing and vivid evocation of the late 1890s - an atmosphere of mutual suspicion and intrigue that was soon to lead to war.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Excerpt from Englands Ende in der Schlacht bei Dorking: Erinnerungen Eines Alten Britten im Nächsten Jahrhundert; Eine Studie aus dem Englischen Übertragen Ihr Enkel wollt, dass ich euch erzählen soll, wie es denn zugegangen ist, dass vor nun bald funfzig Jahren dieses Elend über uns hereinbrach. Nun, ich habe freilich selbst mein hartes Theil mit davon erlebt; aber wahrlich, keine Arbeit werd mir noch so sauer, als zurückzudenken an die traurigen Zeiten an das trostlose Ende von alt-englands Weltmacht. Doch es mag auch gut sein, dass ihr's hört und leset; und wenn ihr jetzt von hier fortzieht in die Ferne, mag es euch eine Lehre sein, da wo ihr euch eu1'e neue Heimath gründen möget. Für uns kam diese Lehre nur zu Spät; und doch waren auch wir genug gewarnt, wenn wir nur hätten sehen und hören wollen. Die Gefahr kam uns nicht einmal eigentlich unerwartet: Sie brach plötzlich über uns herein, das ist wohl wahr; doch ihre Verboten hatten lange deutlich uns vor Augen gestanden; wir aber waren blind mit efi'nen Augen. Niemandem anders als uns selbst haben wir diese Schmach zuzuschreiben, in der gross-britannien zu Grund ging.
