On Saturday 26 February, 1938, seventeen-year-old Georg Klaar took his girlfriend Lisl to his first ball at the Konzerthaus. His family were proudly Austrian. They were also Jewish. Just two weeks later came the Anschluss. A family had been condemned to death by genocide. This new edition of George Clare`s incredibly affecting account of Nazi brutality towards the Jews includes a previously unpublished post-war letter from his Uncle to a friend who had escaped to Scotland. This moving epistle passes on the news of those who had survived and the many who had been arrested, deported, murdered or left to die in concentration camps, and those who had been orphaned or lost their partners or children. It forms a devastating epilogue to what has been hailed as a classic of holocaust literature. `A work of literary genius` Michael Burleigh `A deeply moving book. I felt enriched and grateful after reading it` John le Carré `Told with calm and dignity. I shall not forget the mother and father` Rumer Godden `Admirable, combining very cleverly the historical and personal` Graham Greene `There have been many moving stories of Jewish persecution but none more overwhelming than this` Lord Langford `Mr Clare leads us gently, but inexorably, to the edge of the pit and then leaves us to look down into it` Edward Crankshaw,Observer `This poignant memoir is written from the heart... the truest defence against political hatreds for the future` David Pryce-Jones,Financial Times

THE LAST WALTZ Vienna May 1945 THE LAST WALTZ - Vienna May 1945 - is the uncompromising story of a United States O.S.S. four man, secret mission into Russian occupied Vienna in the uncertain days following the unconditional surrender of the German Armed Forces, and of a small, U.S. Army patrol sent to rendezvous with the four men on their return from Vienna in territory still being held by German SS troops who have not surrendered. As the war had progressed there was mounting alarm in Washington at the extent of Russian Intelligence activities in the U.S.A. and the lack of knowledge available to the U.S. Secret Service on their Russian counterparts. The Last Waltz was part of the process to redress that situation. On April 13th, 1945, the German garrison surrenders Vienna to the Russian troops and Vienna is to endure many days of terror and anarchy. Doctor Anna Holtz, a Swiss national and the daughter in law of an eminent Austrian scientist, fears for her life, and she has valuable information that was given to her by her father in law before he died. On the same night, four Austrian Officers and a Sergeant of the German Wehrmacht make plans for one of the officers, a Captain, and the Sergeant, who have both worked for German Military Intelligence, to surrender themselves to the U.S. Army and offer to return to Vienna with a U.S. agent to retrieve certain documented, secret information that will be valuable to the U.S. which is being safeguarded in Vienna, and also to help Doctor Holtz escape from Vienna. In another part of the city, John Spencer, a British secret agent, is preparing to leave the city and make his way through the German lines and return to London. Two days later, the Wehrmacht Captain and Sergeant surrender to a forward unit of the U.S. Third Army and are interrogated by Captain Maddox, a U.S. Intelligence Officer who sends the two prisoners direct to a Major Keller, a U.S. staff officer at Army Headquarters. The U.S. High Command recognises the importance of the information offered by the Captain and the need to get Doctor Holtz out of Vienna before the Russians become aware that she holds such valuable information. The High Command is also aware of the delicacy of the situation. The Americans seek the help of British Intelligence who have had Spencer operating in Vienna from before the war. Spencer is a maverick British agent recruited from the criminal underworld and during his period in Vienna as a British spy, he has continued to operate his own interests in the criminal, network. It is known that many members of the Austrian Resistance Movement are communist sympathisers, so British Intelligence decide to cash in on Spencer's other activities and contacts. Spencer is cajoled and blackmailed into agreeing to return to Vienna and joins up with Major Keller of the O.S.S. who has been assigned to head the operation into Vienna with the Austrian Captain and Sergeant. The operation has no official recognition and has been unofficially titled THE LAST WALTZ. Spencer makes arrangements for their return to Vienna through his underworld contacts. Captain Maddox, who had first interrogated the Austrian Captain, is ordered to take some of his men behind Russian held lines to rendezvous with Major Keller's party on their return from Vienna. This does not please Captain Maddox, or his men, because the rendezvous is in an area where German SS troops are still fighting their way West. In bo

This work is a translation of de Raynevals 1803 classic The Institutions of Natural Law and the Law of Nations. Having been translated into Spanish shortly after its appearance, The Institutions was the reference point of international law for much of the French- and Spanish-speaking world during the Nineteenth Century. As a result, arguably, it is the single most important text of international law to appear between the 1814 Congress of Vienna and the 1919 Treaty of Versailles. This, the first ever English translation of de Raynevals The Institutions, provides the English-language world with the last text conceived of, and written, during the era of bilaterial, European, Law of Nations; before the waltz into the Concert of Europe and the growth of multilateral diplomacy, with its end point todays United Nations. De Rayneval is a product of the Ancien Régime who turned to writing The Institutions after having been purged from the Quai dOrsay by the French Revolution. It may be said that in brokering the 1782 Peace of Paris which saw the United Kingdom recognise the United States of America, that Rayneval ended the war which his brother started; as it was Conrad-Alexandre de Rayneval who was the architect of the previous French policy of supporting, and later recognising, the American insurgence of the Thirteen Colonies. Through his faithful translation and introductory essay, Jean Allain makes this classic work accessible to the new audience of the English-language World.

A magisterial history of the Jews in Nazi Germany and the regime's policies towards them in the years prior to World War II and the Holocaust. Written by arguably the world's leading scholar on the subject. Himself a survivor, Friedlander has been a leading figure in Holocaust studies for decades and this book represents a definitive summing up of his research and that of hundreds of other historians. NAZI GERMANY AND THE JEWS: THE YEARS OF PERSECUTION is perhaps the richest examination of the subject yet written, and, crucially, one that never loses sight of the experiences of individuals in its discussion of Nazi politics and the terrible statistics and technological and administrative sophistication of the Final Solution.

"Sometimes I feel as if he's sitting next to me." Buchbinder on Beethoven No work has left a more lasting impression on star pianist Rudolf Buchbinder than Beethoven's Diabelli Variations. The Last Waltz explores the world of Beethoven, the publisher Anton Diabelli, and the musical Vienna of the early 19th century in 33 literary variations and offers a fascinating look at Buchbinder's personal approach to music: why did Buchbinder play the Diabelli variations at such a young age? How did he help to save Beethoven's manuscript of the piece? What does he think about while playing Beethoven? How much boogie-woogie is in Beethoven? Why should a musician trust him blindly when playing his music? And what inspired Buchbinder to send Diabelli's waltz to leading contemporary composers, reintroducing the Diabelli variations to the 21st century? The Last Waltz brings marvelous stories of music and people to life.
