Welcome to the stunning conclusion of the award-winning and best-selling MARCH trilogy. Congressman John Lewis, an American icon and one of the key figures of the civil rights movement, joins co-writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell to bring the lessons of history to vivid life for a new generation, urgently relevant for today´s world. By the fall of 1963, the Civil Rights Movement has penetrated deep into the American consciousness, and as chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, John Lewis is guiding the tip of the spear. Through relentless direct action, SNCC continues to force the nation to confront its own blatant injustice, but for every step forward, the danger grows more intense: Jim Crow strikes back through legal tricks, intimidation, violence, and death. The only hope for lasting change is to give voice to the millions of Americans silenced by voter suppression: ´´One Man, One Vote.´´ To carry out their nonviolent revolution, Lewis and an army of young activists launch a series of innovative campaigns, including the Freedom Vote, Mississippi Freedom Summer, and an all-out battle for the soul of the Democratic Party waged live on national television. With these new struggles come new allies, new opponents, and an unpredictable new president who might be both at once. But fractures within the movement are deepening ... even as 25-year-old John Lewis prepares to risk everything in a historic showdown high above the Alabama river, in a town called Selma.

Excerpt from Reminiscences of Parmenas Taylor Turnley, From the Cradle to Three-Score and Ten; By Himself, From Diaries Kept From Early Boyhood: With a Brief Glance Backward Three Hundred and Fifty Years at Progenitors and Ancestral Lineage Mankind are worshipers of idols the more enlightened preferring the man hero, rather´than the dumb stock and stone! It is war that creates heroes! Therefore the masses crave war! A few people here and there, at different epochs and periods, in sentimental moods of despondency, or of occasional religious fervor, may decry the strong arm of the sword, and advocate tribunes of arbitration; but such advocacy will never prevail and such peaceful trib une will ever be the iridescent dream of the imagination! No human government was ever established, save by abso lute physical force´ - nor one ever maintained except by theexercise of that force. We, of these United States, never tire of boasting of our aft-warlike popular government, forgetting for a moment that our boasted government was created in blood and slaughter and that it has been maintained in deeper seas of bloodshed, and loss of life and destruction of material wealth, than all other nations of the earth have expended during our century of existence! The period is rapidly approaching when military force, on a colossal scale, will be invoked to determine and settle the disputes between contending political parties and factions in our government; and to suppress the corrupting ele ments and rottenness now fast accumulating! The power of concentrated wealth must and will rule nations and peoples, in the future as in the past! To this end the heterogeneous masses of the American Republic, gathered from all parts of the earth and called the populace, who are tickled, for the time being, with the appellation of sover eigns and exercising for abrief period the shadowy fiction, called eox papali - which in turn is the basis for that other fiction, Voice of God - will be set aside and kept in bounds by the strong arm of power, while superiors will maintain human government commensurate with the intelligence of the superior elements! The scramble for spoils of office is a barrier to good government by the populace. Equally erroneous is another feature of our American Republic, which is the boasted contention that State and Church are separate and distinct, and shall be kept so - that politics and religion have nothing in common! This is not true; never was, and never will be! No government formed by men since the world began was based on any other foun dation than some kind of religion! The most savage and barbarous tribes on earth have no conception of govern ment, save as a religion! Equally so, do all higher civili zations merge, finally, its aims, efforts and motives, in the religious sentiment dominant among them. The weaker sects will be subdued, and the one stronger prevail! Every political party works under the inspiration of a religion and all so-called political campaigns in a popular govern ment are in fact religious contentions - and religious campaigns! Even as I write this Introduction, and the autumn leaves are falling silently on my grassy lawn, Har rison and Cleveland are before the people for the presi deney; both parties being managed and commanded by political religionists, with a deep and pious fervor in the heart of every leader, determined to down his opponent.

Two nuclear wars. Three asteroids. Demonic madness that kills one third of the world´s population. Into this, a savior will rise, cloned from Christ. It´s not fiction. It´s prophecy. It is the dawn of the New Age. After six millennia of stagnation, humanity stands on the brink of its final great evolutionary step. But it is a step that has come at tremendous cost. Half the world´s population is dead. The Pacific Ocean is barren. The forests of North and South America are a charred wasteland. Central America has been reduced to rubble. The planet´s survivors face a fundamental choice: follow Christopher Goodman, the Messiah of the New Age and clone of Jesus Christ, or cling to the very worldview and the God who has wrought this destruction. Under Christopher´s leadership the world begins to experience miraculous recovery, and soon the first signs of humankind´s evolution emerge, just as Christopher promised. His fanatical opponents, however, charge that he is the Antichrist, and that his name, when written in Hebrew has the numeric value of 666. Reluctantly, Christopher determines to use their own superstitions against these fanatics. He reminds the world that the prophecies of Revelation were written by the Apostle John, and it was John, who after using his dark powers to survive for 2000 years, is responsible for the near annihilation of the planet. It was John, whose writings in the Bible radically distort what is to come and who will emerge the victor. Each person must choose. All that´s certain is that the world is catapulting toward a final apocalyptic conflict, and humanity´s salvation or damnation depend on the true nature of the Christ Clone. 1. Language: English.

The Copyright Wars: Three Centuries of Trans-At...
25,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Today´s copyright wars can seem unprecedented. Sparked by the digital revolution that has made copyright - and its violation - a part of everyday life, fights over intellectual property have pitted creators, Hollywood, and governments against consumers, pirates, Silicon Valley, and open-access advocates. But while the digital generation can be forgiven for thinking the dispute between, for example, the publishing industry and Google is completely new, the copyright wars in fact stretch back three centuries - and their history is essential to understanding today´s battles. The Copyright Wars - the first major trans-Atlantic history of copyright from its origins to today - tells this important story. Peter Baldwin explains why the copyright wars have always been driven by a fundamental tension. Should copyright assure authors and rights holders lasting claims, much like conventional property rights, as in Continental Europe? Or should copyright be primarily concerned with giving consumers cheap and easy access to a shared culture, as in Britain and America? The Copyright Wars describes how the Continental approach triumphed, dramatically increasing the claims of rights holders. The book also tells the widely forgotten story of how America went from being a leading copyright opponent and pirate in the 18th and 19th centuries to becoming the world´s intellectual property policeman in the late 20th. As it became a net cultural exporter and its content industries saw the advantage of the Continental ideology of strong authors´ rights, the United States reversed position on copyright, weakening its commitment to the ideal of universal enlightenment - a history that reveals that today´s open-access advocates are heirs of a venerable American tradition. Compelling and wide-ranging, The Copyright Wars is indispensable for understanding a crucial economic, cultural, and political conflict that has reignited in our own time. 1. Language: English.

Of all the generals in the ancient world, none matches the accomplishments of Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, and Hannibal of Carthage. This audiobook will look at the lives and leadership styles of these three commanders. Alexander conquered the fullest expanse of the known world and brought Europe and Asia under one sovereign. Julius Caesar was a master statesmen, capable of translating military victory into long-term political gains. His vanquishing of the Gauls and his political opponents laid the groundwork for several centuries of Roman imperial might. None could match the tactical genius of Hannibal, who threatened the destruction of Rome at the Battle of Cannae. Whatever their backgrounds, these rulers showed that the right military commander at the right time in history can destroy an empire, change civilization, and alter the course of world history forever. 1.

This compilation includes three Jack Reacher novellas and the ultimate fan guide, "Jack Reacher´s Rules". Deep Down: In thriller master Lee Child’s short story "Deep Down"; Jack Reacher must track down a spy in soldier’s clothing - by matching wits with four formidable females. Three are clean - but the fourth may prove fatal. Summoned by Military Intelligence to Washington, D.C., Reacher is sent undercover. The assignment that awaits him: The army is meeting with its Capitol Hill paymasters for classified talks on a new, state-of-the-art sniper rifle for U.S. forces. But vital details about the weapon are leaking - straight from the Capitol and probably into the hands of unidentified foreign arms dealers. The prospect of any and every terrorist, mercenary, or dictator’s militia getting their hands on the latest superior firepower is unthinkable. That’s where Reacher comes in. His task: infiltrate the top-secret proceedings and smoke out the mole. His target: a quartet of high-powered Army political liaison officers - all of them fast-track women on their way to the top. According to his bosses, it’s a zero-danger mission. No need to draw a gun...just chat over drinks. But Reacher knows that things are rarely what they seem. And he’s learned the hard way never to underestimate an opponent. Or four. Lessons that will come in handy when he starts digging for the truth - and gets his hands a lot dirtier than he expected. Second Son: A young Jack Reacher knows how to finish a fight so it stays finished. He knows how to get the job done so it stays done. And, in one of his earliest challenges, he knows that his analytical brain is just as important as his impressive brawn. Okinawa, 1974: Even at 13, Jack Reacher knows how to outwit and overpower anyone who stands in his way. And as the new kid in town, that’s pretty much everyone. His family has come to the Pacific with his father, who’s... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dick Hill, Lee Child. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/003859de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.
