When George Yancy penned a New York Times op-ed entitled ´´Dear White America” asking white Americans to confront the ways that they benefit from racism, he knew his article would be controversial. But he was unprepared for the flood of vitriol in response.The resulting blowback played out in the national media, with critics attacking Yancy in every form possible - including death threats - and supporters rallying to his side. Despite the rhetoric of a ´´post-race” America, Yancy quickly discovered that racism is still alive, crude, and vicious in its expression. In Backlash, Yancy expands upon the original article and chronicles the ensuing controversy as he seeks to understand what it was about the op-ed that created so much rage among so many white readers. He challenges white Americans to rise above the vitriol and to develop a new empathy for the African American experience. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Yancy.

Mark Twain’s daughter Susy wrote: ´´Papa…doesn’t like to go to church at all, why I never understood, until just now, he told us the other day that he couldn’t bear to hear any one talk but himself, but that he could listen to himself talk for hours without getting tired, of course he said this in joke, but I’ve no dought [sic] it was founded on truth.´´ Here is one of the great autobiographies of the English language - exuberant, wonderfully contemporary in spirit, by a man twice as large as life who—he said so himself—had no trouble remembering everything that had ever happened to him and a lot of things besides. Nothing ever happened to Mark Twain in a small way. His adventures were invariably fraught with drama. Success and failure for him were equally spectacular. And so he roared down the years, feuding with publishers, being a sucker for inventors, always learning wisdom at the point of ruin, and always relishing the absurd spectacle of humankind, which he regarded with a blend of vitriol and affection. 1.

The Corrosion of Conservatism
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As nativism, xenophobia, vile racism, and assaults on the rule of law threaten the very fabric of our nation, The Corrosion of Conservatism presents an urgent defense of American democracy. Pronouncing Mexican immigrants to be ´´rapists,´´ Donald Trump announced his 2015 presidential bid, causing Max Boot to think he was watching a dystopian science-fiction movie. The respected conservative historian couldn´t fathom that the party of Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Reagan could endorse such an unqualified reality-TV star. Yet the Twilight Zone episode that Boot believed he was watching created an ideological dislocation so shattering that Boot´s transformation from Republican foreign policy adviser to celebrated anti-Trump columnist becomes the dramatic story of The Corrosion of Conservatism. No longer a Republican, but also not a Democrat, Boot here records his ideological journey from a ´´movement´´ conservative to a man without a party, beginning with his political coming-of-age as a young émigré from the Soviet Union, enthralled with the National Review and the conservative intellectual tradition of Russell Kirk and F. A. Hayek. Against this personal odyssey, Boot simultaneously traces the evolution of modern American conservatism, jump-started by Barry Goldwater´s canonical The Conscience of a Conservative, to the rise of Trumpism and its gradual corrosion of what was once the Republican Party. While 90 percent of his fellow Republicans became political ´´toadies´´ in the aftermath of the 2016 election, Boot stood his ground, enduring the vitriol of his erstwhile conservative colleagues, trolled on Twitter by a white supremacist who depicted his ´´execution´´ in a gas chamber by a smiling, Nazi-clad Trump. And yet, Boot nevertheless remains a villain to some partisan circles for his enduring commitment to conservative fiscal and national security principles. It is from this isolated position, then, that Boot launches this bold declaration of dissent and its urgent plea for true, bipartisan cooperation. With uncompromising insights, The Corrosion of Conservatism evokes both a president who has traduced every norm and the rise of a nascent centrist movement to counter Trump´s assault on democracy.

Into Thin Air
11,99 € *

National Bestseller A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt. Everest, saw nothing that ´´suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down.´´ He was wrong. The storm, which claimed five lives and left countless more--including Krakauer´s--in guilt-ridden disarray, would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air, Krakauer´s epic account of the May 1996 disaster. By writing Into Thin Air, Krakauer may have hoped to exorcise some of his own demons and lay to rest some of the painful questions that still surround the event. He takes great pains to provide a balanced picture of the people and events he witnessed and gives due credit to the tireless and dedicated Sherpas. He also avoids blasting easy targets such as Sandy Pittman, the wealthy socialite who brought an espresso maker along on the expedition. Krakauer´s highly personal inquiry into the catastrophe provides a great deal of insight into what went wrong. But for Krakauer himself, further interviews and investigations only lead him to the conclusion that his perceived failures were directly responsible for a fellow climber´s death. Clearly, Krakauer remains haunted by the disaster, and although he relates a number of incidents in which he acted selflessly and even heroically, he seems unable to view those instances objectively. In the end, despite his evenhanded and even generous assessment of others´ actions, he reserves a full measure of vitriol for himself. This updated trade paperback edition of Into Thin Air includes an extensive new postscript that sheds fascinating light on the acrimonious debate that flared between Krakauer and Everest guide Anatoli Boukreev in the wake of the tragedy. ´´I have no doubt that Boukreev´s intentions were good on summit day,´´ writes Krakauer in the postscript, dated August 1999. ´´What disturbs me, though, was Boukreev´s refusal to acknowledge the possibility that he made even a single poor decision. Never did he indicate that perhaps it wasn´t the best choice to climb without gas or go down ahead of his clients.´´ As usual, Krakauer supports his points with dogged research and a good dose of humility. But rather than continue the heated discourse that has raged since Into Thin Air´s denouncement of guide Boukreev, Krakauer´s tone is conciliatory; he points most of his criticism at G. Weston De Walt, who coauthored The Climb, Boukreev´s version of events. And in a touching conclusion, Krakauer recounts his last conversation with the late Boukreev, in which the two weathered climbers agreed to disagree about certain points. Krakauer had great hopes to patch things up with Boukreev, but the Russian later died in an avalanche on another Himalayan peak, Annapurna I. In 1999, Krakauer received an Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters--a prestigious prize intended ´´to honor writers of exceptional accomplishment.´´ According to the Academy´s citation, ´´Krakauer combines the tenacity and courage of the finest tradition of investigative journalism with the stylish subtlety and profound insight of the born writer. His account of an ascent of Mount Everest has led to a general reevaluation of climbing and of the commercialization of what was once a romantic, solitary sport; while his account of the life and death of Christopher McCandless, who died of starvation after challenging the Alaskan wilderness, delves even more deeply and disturbingly into the fascination of nature and the devastating effects of its lure on a young and curious mind.´´

That a Jew living in Nazi Berlin survived the Holocaust at all is surprising. That he was a homosexual and a teenage leader in the resistance and yet survived is amazing. But that he endured the ongoing horror with an open heart, with love and without vitriol, and has written about it so beautifully is truly miraculous. This is Gad Beck´s story. 1. Language: English.

ANAAL NATHRAKH aus Birmingham infizieren die Massen im Herbst mit ihrem heiß erwarteten neuen Album Desideratum´´, dem Nachfolger zum 2012er Kritikerliebling ´´Vanitas´´. Produziert hat einmal mehr Gitarrist/Bassist und Programmierer Mick Kenney selbst, wobei der Gesang in den Necrodeath Studios in Birmingham aufgenommen und die Musik im The Black Flamingo in Orange County in Kalifornien eingespielt wie abgemischt wurde. Im Ergebnis stehen zehn emotional traumatisierende Hymnen akustischer Verkommenheit, die das pure Böse verkörpern. ANAAL NATHRAKH - Kenny, zusammen mit Sänger David Hunt aka V.I.T.R.I.O.L. - bestehen aus einem einzigen Grund: als Soundtrack zum Armageddon, als akustische Essenz von Bosheit, Hass und Gewalt, um den wahren Geist des Kranken in musikalische Extreme zu führen. Seit ihrer Gründung 1999 hat sich das hinterhältige Duo den Ruf erarbeitet, all dies zu verkörpern. Mit sowohl Geschrei als auch klarem Gesang vor einem Hintergrund aus kontrolliertem Chaos, stellen ANAAL NATHRAKH nichts anderes als unverhohlene Verstörung dar. Ihre bewegte Geschichte besteht nicht nur aus sieben begeistert aufgenommene Alben sowie einer EP, sondern auch aus Kollaborationen mit großen Namen wie Attila Csihar (Mayhem), Shane Embury und Danny Herrera (Napalm Death), Nick Barker (Testament, Dimmu Borgir), Joe Horvath (Circle Of Dead Children) oder Sethlans Teitan (Watain) zusammengearbeitet. Hinzu kommen ein Auftritt bei BBC Radio 1, zu dem sie die schmerzlich vermisste Ikone John Peel persönlich einlud, ein Headliner-Gig beim renommierten Kultfestival Inferno in Norwegen als internationales Live-Debüt, zahllose Platzierungen In Jahresbesten-Polls, ´´Album des Monats´´-Auszeichnungen und Titel-Storys in führenden Magazinen wie dem Terrorizer, die ANAAL NATHRAKHs Status als eine der führenden extremen Bands unweigerlich zementierten. ANAAL NATHRAKHs einzigartiger Sound zeichnet sich durch musikalische Unbezähmbarkeit aus, Erfindungsreichtum und Breite gepaart mit unfassbarer, entschieden misanthropischer, hoher Intelligenz. Ihren Songs wohnt eine greifbare Bedrohlichkeit inne, die im Metal-Bereich ohne Beispiel bleibt. In diesem Jahr haben sich ANAAL NATHRAKH das Ziel gesetzt ihre Mission, die Erde in die Sonne stürzen zu lassen, weiter voranzutreiben.´´

Emily Gets Her Gun: But Obama Wants to Take You...

In the wake of tragic shootings in Newtown and Aurora, the anti-gun lobby has launched a campaign of lies, distortion, misrepresentation, and emotional manipulation that is breathtaking in its vitriol and its denial of basic facts. Their goal is to take away our Second Amendment rights and then disarm law-abiding Americans. Emily Miller tells her personal story of how being a single, female victim of a home invasion drove her to try to obtain a legally registered gun in Washington, D.C. The narrative - sometimes shocking, other times hilarious in its absurdity - gives the listener a real-life understanding of how gun-control laws only make it more difficult for honest, law-abiding people to get guns, while violent crime continues to rise. Using facts and newly uncovered research, Miller exposes the schemes politicians on Capitol Hill, in the White House, and around the country are using to deny people their Second Amendment rights. She exposes the myths that gun grabbers and liberal media use to get new laws passed that infringe on our right to keep and bear arms. The gun rights debate isn´t just about firearms. It´s about protecting a fundamental right that is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. It´s about politicians who lie, manipulate, and outright break existing laws to get what they want. It´s about President Obama wanting a bigger federal government to control you. Not just your guns - you. The fight for gun rights is the fight for freedom. Emily Miller says stand up and fight back now because your Second Amendment will only be the first to go. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carla Mercer-Meyer.

The NBC journalist who covered - and took fire from - Donald Trump on the campaign trail offers an inside look at the most shocking presidential election in American history. Katy Tur was one of a select cadre of NBC reporters on the road during the grueling 2016 presidential campaign, reporting from small towns and venues across America for more than 16 months. At the beginning of the primaries, Tur was assigned the Trump campaign - a campaign widely considered a long shot by politicos and the media. But primary after primary, the novice outsider trumped his rivals and won the hearts and votes of many Republicans. His appeal to working-class whites, the GOP´s traditional middle and upper middle class base, and conservative evangelicals took him all the way to the White House, astonishing the nation and the world. Unbelievable is Tur´s inside account of being embedded with the campaign, revealing what it was like to report on the most combative and volatile major party candidate ever to run for office and win. At first, Trump tried to charm Tur into providing fawning coverage. When that didn´t work, he stooped to berating and shaming her, stoking the rage of his legion of supporters - many who threatened Tur and other penned-in reporters at his events. The vitriol reached such a fever pitch that following one rally, during which Trump launched a personal attack against her, the Secret Service had to accompany Tur to her car. But Katy was not alone. Millions of Americans watched in disbelief as Trump ordered Tur to ´´be quiet´´ during one of his many press conferences and called her ´´disgraceful´´, ´´third-rate´´, ´´not nice´´, and ´´Little Katy´´. In response, thousands of people across the country rushed to her defense, tweeting #imwithtur. Intriguing, disturbing, and powerful, Unbelievable is an unprecedented eyewitness account of the 2016 election from an intelligent, dedicated journalist at the center of it - a thoughtf 1.

Zadig ou la Destinée est le conte philosophique majeur de Voltaire. C´est à la fois un concentré d´humour, une critique au vitriol de la société du XVIIIe, et une réflexion cruciale sur ce que cela signifie d´être heureux. Le jeune Zadig a en effet tout pour l´être : il est beau, riche et vertueux, et s´apprête à épouser la plus belle de Babylone. Mais la destinée a d´autres plans en réserve, et notre jeune philosophe apprendra à ses dépens que le bonheur ne dépend pas uniquement de nous. Trahi par sa fiancée, traîné en justice par des canailles, menacé par des fanatiques religieux et secouru par un ange, Zadig traversera des épreuves rocambolesques - toutes l´occasion pour Voltaire d´exprimer tout son génie, sa cruauté, sa gaieté et sa haine de la sottise humaine. 1.
