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.

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.

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.

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.

Four men in a rowboat make an historic attempt on the Northwest Passage to focus global attention on an environmental catastrophe. ´´Vallely transports the reader to places few will ever go: the very edges of the earth and of human endurance.´´ (Evan Solomon) In this gripping first-hand account, four seasoned adventurers navigate a sophisticated, high-tech rowboat across the Northwest Passage. One of the ´´last firsts´´ remaining in the adventure world, this journey is only possible because of the dramatic impacts of global warming in the high Arctic, which provide an ironic opportunity to draw attention to the growing urgency of climate change. Along the way, the team repeatedly face life-threatening danger from storms unparalleled in their ferocity and unpredictability and bears witness to unprecedented changes in the Arctic habitat and inhabitants, while weathering gale-force vitriol from climate change deniers who have taken to social media to attack them and undermine their efforts. 1.
