"Haruki Murakami's Men Without Women examines what happens to characters without important women in their lives; it'll move you and confuse you and sometimes leave you with more questions than answers." -Barack Obama Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are lovesick doctors, students, ex-boyfriends, actors, bartenders, and even Kafka's Gregor Samsa, brought together to tell stories that speak to us all. In Men Without Women Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic, marked by the same wry humor and pathos that have defined his entire body of work.

After Trump: How Nationalism Can Save America ,...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What happens after Trump? This question, more than any other, will determine whether or not the movement to put America First and Make America Great Again succeeds. In his newest volume, Tom Kawczynski builds upon his knowledge of the past and analysis of the future to offer a pathway forward for America to realize even greater renewal in the embrace of unrepentant nationalism. Building the wall is but the first step as immigration and family planning policies are frankly discussed, the process through which nations are constructed is applied to revitalize our failing civic culture, and the first steps of what must be done for the future to ensure America does not revert to the dismal malaise of the Obama era. 1.

The Demagogue's Playbook (eBook, ePUB)
12,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What Happens to Democracy When a Demagogue Comes to Power?"It is hard to imagine understanding the Trump presidency and its significance without reading this book." -Bob Bauer, Former Chief Counsel to President Barack Obama What-and who-is a demagogue? How did America's Founders envision the presidency? What should a constitutional democracy look like-and how can it be fixed when it appears to be broken? Something is definitely wrong with Donald Trump's presidency, but what exactly? The extraordinary negative reaction to Trump's election-by conservative intellectuals, liberals, Democrats, and global leaders alike-goes beyond ordinary partisan and policy disagreements. It reflects genuine fear about the vitality of our constitutional system. The Founders, reaching back to classical precedents, feared that their experiment in mass self-government could produce a demagogue: a charismatic ruler who would gain and hold on to power by manipulating the public rather than by advancing the public good. President Trump, who has played to the mob and attacked institutions from the judiciary to the press, appears to embody these ideas. How can we move past his rhetoric and maintain faith in our great nation? In The Demagogue's Playbook, acclaimed legal scholar Eric A. Posner offers a blueprint for how America can prevent the rise of another demagogue and protect the features of a democracy that help it thrive-and restore national greatness, for one and all. "Cuts through the hyperbole and hysteria that often distorts assessments of our republic, particularly at this time." -Alan Taylor, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for History

Two of America’s most perceptive political reporters join forces for an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the race for the White House in Politico's Playbook 2012, a series of four instant digital books on the 2012 presidential election. This first edition, The Right Fights Back, follows the campaign for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, which promises to be one of the most hotly contested and closely fought in recent memory, as establishment Republicans, Tea Party favorites, and dark horse insurgents vie to take on President Obama in the November election. In The Right Fights Back, Mike Allen, chief White House correspondent for Politico, and Evan Thomas, the award-winning journalist and author of Robert F. Kennedy and The War Lovers, chronicle the dramatic events of this historic campaign as it unfolds. With exclusive real-time reporting from the campaign trail, The Right Fights Back provides detail, color, and in-depth analysis that take listeners beyond the hourly headlines and commentary. From the role of Super PACS and conservative interest groups to the clashes of personality and policy that will define the race to capture the GOP nomination, this is a history-as-it-happens account of the resurgent American right at the crossroads. 1.

Wildly imaginative. (Barack Obama on The Three-Body Problem trilogy)A new standalone military science fiction adventure from the New York Times best-selling and award-winning author of the Three-Body Trilogy. When Chen’s parents are incinerated before his eyes by a blast of ball lightning, he devotes his life to cracking the secret of the mysterious natural phenomenon. His search takes him to stormy mountaintops, an experimental military weapons lab, and an old Soviet science station.   The more he learns, the more he comes to realize that ball lightning is just the tip of an entirely new frontier in particle physics. Although Chen’s quest provides a purpose for his lonely life, his reasons for chasing his elusive quarry come into conflict with soldiers and scientists who have motives of their own: a beautiful army major with an obsession with dangerous weaponry, and a physicist who has no place for ethical considerations in his single-minded pursuit of knowledge.  Ball Lightning, by award-winning Chinese science fiction author Cixin Liu, is a fast-paced audiobook about what happens when the beauty of scientific inquiry runs up against a push to harness new discoveries with no consideration of their possible consequences.  This program is read by Feodor Chin, voice of Zenyatta in Overwatch.    1.
