Why is it happening, and what can we do about it? If we learn about the past, then perhaps there will be time to make changes for the future...

On a quiet sea, the biggest ship in the world is waiting. There is no noise from the engines. Up in the night sky there are hundreds of stars. Behind the ship, an iceburg - a great mountain of ice - goes slowly away into the black night. In the beautiful first-class rooms, rich passengers eat and listen to music. Down in the third-class cabins, families sleep. An exciting new life is waiting for them in America. But for many of the people in this small "city on the sea", this is their last night alive...

Steve Flinders

Format: Paperback

Some call it football, some call it soccer, and to others it's "the beautiful game". By any name, it's a sport with some fascinating stories. There is murder in Colombia, and a game that lasts for two days where many players never see the ball. There's the French writer who learnt lessons about life from playing football, and the women players who had to leave the club grounds because "Women's football isn't nice". The cups, the leagues, the World Cup finals, the stars, the rules - they're all part of the world's favourite sport, the beautiful game.

From out of the sky, from under the earth, from far out at sea - disaster comes. We build and invent new things - and sometimes bring disaster on ourselves. Today television and the Internet mean that we can watch disasters as they happen, and see their terrible results. From Pompeii to the Asian Tsunami, from the Great Fire of London to Chernobyl, the stories of disasters are frightening, but they have much to tell us. Disasters bring stories of fear, pain, loss, and death - but also of people whose extraordinary bravery and feeling for others will touch your heart.

Oxford Bookworms Factfiles: Martin Luther King

Level 3: 1000-Word Vocabulary

Alan C. McLean

Format: Paperback

Language Level: B1

The United States in the 1950s and 60s was a troubled place. Black people were angry, because they did not have the same rights as whites. It was a time of angry words, of marches, of protests, a time of bombs and killings. But above the angry noise came the voice of one man - a man of peace. "I have a dream," said Martin Luther King, and it was a dream of blacks and whites living together in peace and freedom. This is the story of an extraordinary man, who changed American history in his short life.
