Escaping Eleven (eBook, ePUB)
7,99 € *

In Compound Eleven, the hierarchy of the floors is everything.My name is Eve Hamilton, and on my floor, we fight.Which at least is better than the bottom floor, where they toil away in misery. Only the top floor has any ease in this harsh world; they rule from their gilded offices.Because four generations ago, Earth was rendered uninhabitable-the sun too hot, the land too barren. Those who remained were forced underground. While not a perfect life down here, I've learned to survive as a fighter.Except my latest match is different. Instead of someone from the circuit, my opponent is a mysterious boy from the top floor. And the look in his eyes tells me he's different...maybe even kind.Right before he kicks my ass.Still, there's something about him-something that says he could be my salvation...or my undoing. Because I'm no longer content to just survive in Eleven. Today, I'm ready to fight for more than my next meal: I'm fighting for my freedom. And this boy may just be the edge I've been waiting on.

Antarctica, Art and Archive (eBook, ePUB)
44,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Antarctica, that icy wasteland and extreme environment at the ends of the earth, was - at the beginning of the 20th century - the last frontier of Victorian imperialism, a territory subjected to heroic and sometimes desperate exploration. Now, at the start of the 21st century, Antarctica is the vulnerable landscape behind iconic images of climate change. In this genre-crossing narrative Gould takes us on a journey to the South Pole, through art and archive. Through the life and tragic death of Edward Wilson, polar explorer, doctor, scientist and artist, and his watercolours, and through the work of a pioneer of modern anthropology and opponent of scientific racism, Franz Boas, Gould exposes the legacies of colonialism and racial and gendered identities of the time. Antarctica, the White Continent, far from being a blank - and white - canvas, is revealed to be full of colour. Gould argues that the medium matters and that the practices of observation in art, anthropology and science determine how we see and what we know. Stories of exploration and open-air watercolour painting, of weather experiments and ethnographic collecting, of evolution and extinction, are interwoven to raise important questions for our times. Revisiting Antarctica through the archive becomes the urgent endeavour to imagine an inhabitable planetary future.

The Man From Clear Lake: Earth Day Founder Sena...
9,95 € *

On Earth Day 1970 20 million Americans displayed their commitment to a clean environment. It was called the largest demonstration in human history, and it permanently changed the nation's political agenda. By Earth Day 2000 participation had exploded to 500 million people in 167 countries. The seemingly simple idea—a day set aside to focus on protecting our natural environment—was the brainchild of U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. It accomplished, far beyond his expectations, his lifelong goal of putting the environment onto the nation's and the world's political agendas. A remarkable man, Nelson ranks as one of history's leading environmentalists. He also played a major role as an early, outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War, and as a senate insider was a key player in civil rights, poverty, civil liberties and consumer protection issues. The life of Nelson, a small town boy who learned his values and progressive political principles at an early age, is woven through the political history of the twentieth century. Nelson's story intersects at times with Fighting Bob La Follette, Joe McCarthy, and Bill Proxmire in Wisconsin, and with George McGovern, Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, Russell Long, Walter Mondale, John F. Kennedy, and others on the national scene. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Henry. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/crvn/000017/bk_crvn_000017_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

50 Reasons to Vote for Hillary Clinton , Hörbuc...
9,95 € *

Everything you need to know when deciding who you want to be the next President of the United States. This piece endeavors to highlight Hillary Rodham-Clinton accomplishments and qualifications to be President of the United States. While her criticisms and scandals are not avoided, they are also not rehashed ad-nauseum. Furthermore, we explore her political philosophy which is rooted in the Machiavellian "realpolitik" school of politics. Whether one loves, loathes, or is indifferent about America's female political powerhouse, it cannot be denied that her list of qualifications and accomplishments to serve as the most powerful person on earth is an impressive one. Moreover, there are two brief lessons on the nature of Machiavellian political theory and the nature of fascism, the latter being a political platform not so subtly espoused by her opponent Donald Trump. Questions about her political morality are raised where appropriate; however, in turn, the Republican and media witch hunts against her and Bill Clinton are addressed as well. It is a clear, factual, and concise effort to push the undecided voter into Hillary's camp, as we also illustrate the danger presented by Trump's brand of neo-fascist con-artist politics. In the end, November is just around the corner and the fate of America and the planet for the next four years rides on who is sworn into the presidency in January 2017. 1. Language: English.

Debut author Sally Thorne bursts on the scene with a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy all about that thin, fine line between hate and love. Nemesis (n.) 1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome. 2) A person's undoing 3) Joshua Templeman Lucy Hutton has always been certain that the nice girl can get the corner office. She's charming and accommodating and prides herself on being loved by everyone at Bexley & Gamin. Everyone except for coldly efficient, impeccably attired, physically intimidating Joshua Templeman. And the feeling is mutual. Trapped in a shared office together 40 (ok, 50 or 60) hours a week, they've become entrenched in an addictive, ridiculous never-ending game of one-upmanship. There's the Staring Game. The Mirror Game. The HR Game. Lucy can't let Joshua beat her at anything - especially when a huge new promotion goes up for the taking. If Lucy wins this game, she'll be Joshua's boss. If she loses, she'll resign. So why is she suddenly having steamy dreams about Joshua and dressing for work like she's got a hot date? After a perfectly innocent elevator ride ends with an earth-shattering kiss, Lucy starts to wonder whether she's got Joshua Templeman all wrong. Maybe Lucy Hutton doesn't hate Joshua Templeman. And maybe he doesn't hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.  1. Language: English. Narrator: Katie Schorr.
