Ausgezeichnet mit dem Man Booker Prize Jamaika, 1976: Sieben bewaffnete Männer dringen in das Haus des Reggae-Musikers Bob Marley ein und eröffnen das Feuer. Marleys Manager wirft sich schützend über ihn und erleidet dabei lebensgefährliche Verletzungen. Marleys Frau Rita wird ebenfalls schwer verwundet, er selbst bleibt mit leichteren Verletzungen an Armen und Brust zurück. Wer waren die Täter? Was waren ihre Motive? Ausgehend von dem Attentat und den Spekulationen, die sich darum ranken, entwirft Marlon James ein vielseitiges Stimmungsbild Jamaikas in den 70er und 80er Jahren voll Gewalt, politischer Willkür, Drogen und Intrigen, ausgestaltet bis ins kleinste Detail.

German Power

Author: Hans Kundnani
Publisher: C.H.Beck
ISBN: 9783406688645
Release Date: 2016-03-08
Genre: Political Science

Ist ein „deutsches Europa“ die bittere Frucht der europäischen Krise? In vielen europäischen Ländern wird es so wahrgenommen. Angela Merkel wird mit Hitler verglichen, die Rede ist von deutscher „Hegemonie“ und einem neuen deutschen „Reich“. Doch Deutschland ist heute ein anderes Land als im 19. Oder 20. Jahrhundert. Nur – welches? Einmal mehr könnte es zu einer Quelle der Instabilität im Herzen Europas werden. In German Power geht Hans Kundnani der Transformation Deutschlands seit der Vereinigung 1990 nach und stellt sie in den Kontext der deutschen Geschichte vor 1945. Dabei zeigt er Ähnlichkeiten auf und benennt einige Grundkonflikte – zwischen Kontinuität und Wandel, Ökonomie und Politik, Europa und der Welt. Kundnani kommt in seinem provozierenden Essay zu dem unbequemen Schluss, dass die „deutsche Frage“ wieder zurückgekehrt ist – in geoökonomischer Gestalt.

Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

If you’re about to get on a plane, what should you do--and avoid doing--to assure a safe flight? What does it mean if you see an ambulance zoom by? And is a black cat always unlucky? Though we may say we don’t believe in superstitions, they have an unmistakable power...and to be on the safe side, most of us secretly knock wood, don’t walk under ladders, and avoid opening that umbrella indoors. Broken up into categories such as animals, astrology, dreams, and flowers, this fascinating dictionary will alert you to thousands of beliefs, omens, and proverbs that you may never have known. Here’s just a few: * A dog hiding under a table means a storm is brewing. * To see an image of your future spouse, eat a whole salted herring in three mouthfuls, go to bed without a drink, and say nothing. * Scatter ashes over the roof of a house to protect it against lightning. * Bringing an axe into the home presages death. * When the aurora borealis--the colored lights that flash in the northern sky--appear, spirits are cavorting in heaven and a war is imminent. * Eating peanuts before an auto race brings bad luck. Among the many other subjects: clothing, days of the year, food, gemstones, herbs, hobbies,illness and medicine, marriage numbers, plants and trees, professions, and the weather.

Kaltbl tig

Genre: Fiction

Im November 1959 wird in Holcomb, Kansas, die vierköpfige Familie Clutter brutal ermordet. Wenige Wochen später werden die Täter Dick Hickock und Perry Smith auf der Flucht geschnappt. Truman Capote erfährt aus der New York Times von dem Verbrechen und beschließt, am Tatort zu recherchieren. Er spricht mit Bekannten und Freunden der Familie, mit der Polizei. Schließlich erhält er Gelegenheit, mit den beiden Mördern zu reden. Mit der Zeit gelingt es ihm, so viel Nähe zu ihnen herzustellen, dass sie ihm präzise Innenansichten ihrer Seele erlauben. Fast sechs Jahre nach ihrer Tat begleitet er sie bis an den Galgen. Capotes herausragende Rekonstruktion eines Mordes wurde eine Sensation und begründete ein neues literarisches Genre: die "non-fiction novel", den Tatsachenroman. In einer atemberaubenden Sprache erzählt er, wie aus Menschen Mörder werden. Mit Kaltblütig landete Capote einen internationalen Bestseller.
