Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit

Author: Yuval Noah Harari
Publisher: DVA
ISBN: 9783641104986
Release Date: 2013-09-02
Genre: History

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Der Graf von Monte Christo

Author: Alexandre Dumas
Publisher: andersseitig.de
ISBN: 9783955011017
Release Date: 2013-05-27
Genre: Fiction

Vollständige und illustrierte Fassung. Zwischen 1844 und 1846 veröffentlichte Dumas den Graf von Monte Christo als Fortsetzungsroman in der Zeitschrift Le Journal des débats und erzielte damit ungeahnten Erfolg. Noch bevor der Roman fertiggestellt war, erschienen bereits die ersten Nachdrucke. Die Geschichte spielt in der Zeit nach der Französischen Revolution in den Jahren 1814 bis 1838. Napoleons Stern ist untergegangen, und die Restauration unter den Königen Ludwig XVIII. und Karl X. hat stattgefunden. Dann folgt die Julirevolution von 1830, durch die der „Bürgerkönig" Louis-Philippe I. auf den Thron kommt. Der junge Seemann Edmond Dantès kehrt mit der „Pharao", einem Schiff des Reeders Morrel, am 24. Februar 1815 nach Marseille zurück. Er wird unschuldig verhaftet und eingekerkert. Neun Jahre später beginnt Dantès seinen groß angelegten Rachefeldzug, den er selbst nicht als Rache empfindet; statt als Beleidigter, dem eine Vergeltung zusteht, sieht er sich als personifizierte Strafe Gottes. Er hat sich eine neue Identität geschaffen als Graf von Monte Christo, ein düster-grimmiger Aristokrat von unermesslichem Reichtum, vollendeten Manieren und rätselhafter Herkunft.
