Bloodline Star Wars

Author: Claudia Gray
Publisher: Del Rey
ISBN: 9781101885253
Release Date: 2016-05-03
Genre: Fiction

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the author of Star Wars: Lost Stars comes a thrilling novel set in the years before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. “Unmissable . . . Bloodline’s tense politics, vivid new characters, and perfectly characterized Leia make it feel as central to the Star Wars universe as one of the films.”— WITNESS THE BIRTH OF THE RESISTANCE When the Rebellion defeated the Empire in the skies above Endor, Leia Organa believed it was the beginning to a lasting peace. But after decades of vicious infighting and partisan gridlock in the New Republic Senate, that hope seems like a distant memory. Now a respected senator, Leia must grapple with the dangers that threaten to cripple the fledgling democracy—from both within and without. Underworld kingpins, treacherous politicians, and Imperial loyalists are sowing chaos in the galaxy. Desperate to take action, senators are calling for the election of a First Senator. It is their hope that this influential post will bring strong leadership to a divided galaxy. As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia faces with distrust the prospect of any one person holding such a powerful position—even when supporters suggest Leia herself for the job. But a new enemy may make this path Leia’s only option. For at the edges of the galaxy, a mysterious threat is growing. . . . Praise for Bloodline “[Claudia] Gray paints a much more complete galaxy than we often get to see on the big screen. . . . Knowing that Rian Johnson (writer, director of Star Wars: Episode VIII) had some creative input on the novel provides hope that we haven’t seen the last of all of these wonderful characters. . . . Star Wars: Bloodline isn’t just a great Star Wars book, or a great Leia book, or a great book; it’s a great introduction into the larger world of Star Wars in general.”— “Bloodline is a nonstop page-turner that grabs at heartstrings that you weren’t aware of and yanks down on every one of them. The story is loaded with context for The Force Awakens that plants the seeds for The First Order in perfectly haunting ways, and leaves the reader grasping for more details on newly discovered favorite characters.”—Inverse From the Hardcover edition.

Star Wars and Philosophy

Author: Kevin S. Decker
ISBN: 9781459601017
Release Date: 2010-10-01

Sensed a disturbance in The Force lately? This is whats been setting your midi-chlorians tingling. Seventeen Jedi adepts got together to probe the deeper reaches of the Star Wars epic. A hazardous quest philosophy is more risky than not letting a Wookiee win. Now their wisdom has been imprinted on sheets of extruded wood pulp and conveyed across hyperspace into our galaxy. Why do bad Sith nearly always tell the truth and good Jedi often tell lies? When is it justified to raise an army by breeding clones? If the Force must have a Dark Side, how can the Dark Side be evil? Why and how did the tyrannical Empire emerge from the free Republic? Are droids persons, entitled to civil rights? Is Yoda a Stoic or a Zen master? This is the Jedis most precious possession. The answers are all here. You may want to go home and rethink your life.""A real 'tour de Force'! Star Wars and Philosophy is a terrific read for any reflective person gripped by George Lucas's archetypal space saga. This 'council' of philosophers illuminates a wide scope of pertinent social, political, ethical, philosophical, and religious issues of great significance to both our world and the Star Wars galaxy.""

Über «Star Wars» lässt sich wunderbar philosophieren: Hat Luke Skywalker einen Ödipuskomplex? Ist der Jedi-Orden eine postmoderne Religion? War Heidegger ein Sith-Lord? Und wie um alles in der Welt kann man Wookies verstehen? Dieses Buch versammelt philosophische, kulturhistorische und politische Analysen: von der durchkomponierten Mythologie der ersten drei Filme bis zu den archetypischen Familienkonstellationen der Skywalkers; von der rätselhaften «Force» bis zum ambivalenten Umgang mit der «hellen» und «dunklen» Seite; vom Einsatz politischer Metaphorik und Bildsprache bis hin zur Frage nach der Ordnung der Gesellschaft in Klassen und Geschlechter. Das Buch zeigt, wie viel Philosophie in der Populärkultur steckt und wie viel Spaß es machen kann, mit «Star Wars» über Heidegger, Augustinus, Lacan, den Taoismus, Wittgenstein, den Kapitalismus oder die Gender Studies nachzudenken. Denn es ist ja ohne Zweifel so, dass kaum etwas so sehr zum Denken anregt wie ein ordentliches Weltraummärchen. Mit Beiträgen von: Jörn Ahrens, Julian Baggini, Yves Bossart, Pierre Cassou-Noguès, Wolfram Eilenberger, Tristan Garcia, Thomas Groh, Linus Hauser, Alexandre Lacroix, Alexis Lavis, Clotilde Leguil, Harald Lesch, Nils Markwardt, Baptiste Morizot, Tobie Nathan, Catherine Newmark, Tomáš Sedláček, Harald Zaun, Slavoj Žižek Das Buch entstand in Kooperation mit dem Philosophie Magazin.

Empire s End Aftermath Star Wars

Author: Chuck Wendig
Publisher: Del Rey
ISBN: 9781101966976
Release Date: 2017-02-21
Genre: Fiction

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Following Star Wars: Aftermath and Star Wars: Life Debt, Chuck Wendig delivers the exhilarating conclusion to the New York Times bestselling trilogy set in the years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. EVERY END IS A NEW BEGINNING. As the final showdown between the New Republic and the Empire draws near, all eyes turn to a once-isolated planet: Jakku. The Battle of Endor shattered the Empire, scattering its remaining forces across the galaxy. But the months following the Rebellion’s victory have not been easy. The fledgling New Republic has suffered a devastating attack from the Imperial remnant, forcing the new democracy to escalate its hunt for the hidden enemy. For her role in the deadly ambush, Grand Admiral Rae Sloane is the most wanted Imperial war criminal—and one-time rebel pilot Norra Wexley, back in service at Leia’s urgent request, is leading the hunt. But more than just loyalty to the New Republic drives Norra forward: Her husband was turned into a murderous pawn in Sloane’s assassination plot, and now she wants vengeance as much as justice. Sloane, too, is on a furious quest: pursuing the treacherous Gallius Rax to the barren planet Jakku. As the true mastermind behind the Empire’s devastating attack, Rax has led the Empire to its defining moment. The cunning strategist has gathered the powerful remnants of the Empire’s war machine, preparing to execute the late Emperor Palpatine’s final plan. As the Imperial fleet orbits Jakku, an armada of Republic fighters closes in to finish what began at Endor. Norra and her crew soar into the heart of an apocalyptic clash that will leave land and sky alike scorched. And the future of the galaxy will finally be decided. Praise for Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath “Star Wars: Aftermath [reveals] what happened after the events of 1983’s Return of the Jedi. It turns out, there’s more than just the Empire for the good guys to worry about.”—The Hollywood Reporter “The Force is strong with Star Wars: Aftermath.”—Alternative Nation “The Star Wars universe is fresh and new again, and just as rich and mysterious as it always was.”—Den of Geek! Aftermath: Life Debt “Compulsively readable, the kind of caramel-corn book you just keep stuffing in your face until it’s gone.”— “Man oh man, this is good stuff. [Life Debt] reveals what Han and Chewie were up to after Return of the Jedi.”—io9 “Gripping reading . . . [This novel] hits the ground running.”—New York Daily News

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Deutsch, Note: 2,3, Christian-Albrechts-Universit t Kiel (Institut f r neuere deutsche Literatur und Medien), 50 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: "Es war einmal vor langer Zeit in einer weit, weit entfernten Galaxis...." - Dieser Satz leitet in den Krieg der Sterne" ein, ein Weltraumepos aus der Feder des amerikanischen Filmemachers George Lucas. Die Ver ffentlichung des ersten StarWars-Films hat eine Entwicklung eingeleitet, die ihresgleichen sucht und als Renaissance des Genres1 bezeichnet wird: Zun chst als Low-Budget-Film mit geringen Aussichten auf finanziellen Erfolg eingestuft, spielte Star Wars"2 schon am ersten Wochenende seine geringen Produktionskosten wieder ein.3 W hrend der Science- Fiction-Film der Siebziger Jahre haupts chlich d stere und pessimistische Zukunftsvisionen zeigte4, bestach Star Wars durch eine auf den ersten Blick einfache Handlung und griff auf altbekannte Erz hlstrukturen zur ck5. Die Technik, die als Hauptgegenstand das Science-Fiction-Genre auszeichnet6, wird in der Star Wars-Welt weder thematisiert noch problematisiert. Der m rchenhafte Charakter der Filme erw chst unter anderem daraus, dass die phantastischen Elemente7 des Films (Raumschiffe, Lichtschwerter, Ungeheuer, etc.) Voraussetzung und Medium der Handlung sind.8 Sie geh ren zur Welt des Geschehens, ohne vom Publikum oder den Figuren hinterfragt zu werden und erschlossen StarWars auch f r j ngeres Publikum. Dar ber hinaus ist hinter der actionlastigen Handlung von StarWars eine zus tzliche Dimension verborgen, die mit unz hligen verschiedenartigen Anspielungen und der Benutzung von mythologischen, religi sen, filmhistorischen und andersartigen Motiven die Filme zu einer intertextuellen Fundgrube macht, deren Wahrnehmung f r das Verst ndnis der Filme jedoch nicht unbedingt notwendig ist, sondern ihnen verschiedene Verst ndnisebenen verleiht.9 Die tendenziell positive Darstellung fremder Welten und Al

The Star Wars Enigma

Release Date: 2011-07-01
Genre: History

The year 1982 was a desperate time for the U.S. defense community. The United States had no effective system to protect itself completely from a Soviet attack with nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles, which the Soviet Union possessed in large quantity, and the doomsday philosophy of mutually assured destruction seemed inescapable. But people in the Reagan administration, including Reagan himself, were not content with what they viewed as a morally unacceptable status quo. Then Adm. James Watkins, a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, asked, "Wouldn't it be better if we could develop a system that would protect, rather than avenge, our people?" With that, the president's commitment to the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) became certain. Ultimately, SDI reflected Western political idealism, a powerful ingredient in the struggle to finally conquer the terrors of the Cold War and to allay the threat of nuclear holocaust. The Star Wars Enigma tells this dramatic story.
