Book Description: VINTAGE, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. For decades the Magistrate has run the affairs of a tiny frontier settlement, ignoring the impending war between the barbarians and the Empire, whose servant he is. But when the interrogation experts arrive, he is jolted into sympathy with the victims and into a quixotic act of rebellion which lands him in prison, branded as an enemy of the state. Waiting for the Barbarians is an allegory of oppressor and oppressed. Not just a man living through a crisis of conscience in an obscure place in remote times, the Magistrate is an analogue of all men living in complicity with regimes that ignore justice and decency.

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Random House UK | Jahrzehntelang ist der Magistrat ein loyaler Diener des Staates gewesen und hat die Amtsgeschäfte der winzigen Garnisonsstadt in einem Grenzdistrikt des Reiches geführt, ohne sich von der vermeintlichen Bedrohung durch die "Barbaren ", einem benachbarten Nomadenstamm, beirren zu lassen. Als jedoch eine Spezialeinheit der Staatspolizei eintrifft, um den Nachweis für kriegerische Absichten der "Barbaren "zu erbringen, wird er Zeuge der grausamen und ungesetzlichen Behandlung von Gefangenen. Vom Mitleid mit den Opfern aufgerüttelt, will der alte Mann ein Zeichen setzen. Gleichsam in einem Akt privater Wiedergutmachung nimmt er ein schwer misshandeltes "Barbaren "-Mädchen bei sich auf, um es schließlich zu seinem Volk zurückzubringen. Diese Expedition brandmarkt ihn als Verräter, er wird nun seinerseits Opfer von öffentlicher Demütigung und Folter. J. M. Coetzees früher Roman "Warten auf die Barbaren" (1980) gilt als eines der zentralen Werke des Autors. Das mehrfach ausgezeichnete Wer k stellt die Frage nach Würde und Mitverantwortung des Einzelnen unter einem Regime, das sich über Recht und Anstand hinwegsetzt. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 134 gr | 199x129x14 mm | 169 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780099465935
