´´I have a dream today.´´ On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King spoke these words as he addressed a crowd of more than 200,000 civil rights protesters gathered at The Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. Two months earlier, President John Kennedy had sent a civil rights bill to Congress, but it was struck down. Although Kennedy was concerned about the possibility of widespread violence during this protest, he realized he was powerless to stop it and embraced the movement instead. Known as the ´´March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom,´´ the country expected to hear King deliver strong words to his opponents. Instead, his ´´I Have a Dream´´ speech was one of heartfelt passion and poetic eloquence that still echoes in our memory. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Martin Luther King Jr..

The return of the famous shared-world superhero books created and edited by George R. R. Martin, author of A GAME OF THRONES In the six decades since the alien plague known as the Wild Card virus spread a wave of mutations around the globe, humanity has begun to come to terms with its consequences. Grotesque half-human creatures known as ´jokers´ inhabit an underworld of their own, while the legendary prodigies known as ´aces´ have become real-world superheroes, complete with colourful names and costumes. Now a new generation of aces has taken its place on the world stage, becoming crucial players in international events. At the United Nations, veteran ace John Fortune has assembled a team of young heroes, known as The Committee, to assist at trouble spots around the world - including an invasion of zombies in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans, a freak nuclear explosion in a small Texas town, and a fateful showdown with the forces of the oil-rich Islamic caliphate in the Middle East. But The Committee´s opponents have their own aces and jokers ready to do battle, including a Marxist revolutionary, a brutal mercenary, a young boy with apocalyptic powers and - most terrifyingly of all - a sinister arm of the FBI known as SCARE.
As the anchor titles in a new ?Time Machine? Lyons Press baseball series, The Ultimate Cleveland Indians Time Machine presents a timeline format that not only includes the Indians? greatest moments?including World Series appearances and individual achievements?but would focus also on some very unusual seasons and events, such as the team?s 20-134 season of 1899 (the absolute worst in baseball history), the ´´Crybabies´´ of 1940 (who received this nickname after complaining about their manager to such as extent that fans even turned on them), or the infamous ?Ten Cent Beer Night of 1974? (when thousands of drunken fans stormed the field and forced the team to forfeit). Of course there are other events to recall, like 17-year-old Bob Feller making his debut and striking out 17 batters in 1936, or Albert Belle famously pointing at his muscle after a playoff opponent claimed (rightly) that he had corked his bat and one of his teammates sneaked into the umpire´s room to steal it back so the umps could not find out that it was corked. There are dozens of impressive, wild, wacky and wonderful stories over the years regarding Indians history and Gitlin is the perfect person to write it with his trademark humor and thorough knowledge of Indians lore.
In the 16th century, corruption, debauchery, and the general perversion of ethics were running rampant within the Roman Catholic Church. The public began to grow leery of the crooked church, and soon, they could no longer bite their tongues. Among the church´s most vocal opponents was Martin Luther, whose publication of the 95 Theses gave rise to the Protestant movement. This reformed brand of Christianity gradually spread throughout Europe, planting flags across the continent. France was among the first to latch onto the movement, and these new-wave Protestants became known as the ´´Huguenots´´. The exact origins of the Huguenot name is still disputed to this day, but most historians have agreed it is a French and German translation of the Swiss-German term, eidgenossen, meaning ´´oath-fellowship´´. The Huguenots mostly resided in the southern regions of France, along with the northern regions of Normandy and Picardy. They shared quite a few similarities with the Protestant Walloons, who lived in what is now Belgium, but the two groups were unique communities. Even so, both groups frequently convened to worship together as refugees. The Huguenots, whose belief system incorporated a blend of unorthodox Waldensian and Calvinist teachings, continued to bloom, which did not sit well with the authorities. Critics attributed the rise of Protestant-led riots to the no-good Huguenots. The Huguenots were known iconoclasts who rejected statues, paintings, idols, and other religious images, as often seen in the numerous statues and stained glass artwork in Catholic churches. Across Europe, rebellious Protestants seized Catholic churches and swiped all heretical images, destroying them with axes and hurling them into roaring bonfires. The string of ambushes included the 1562 Looting of the Churches in Lyon, which were followed by similar attacks in Zurich, Copenhagen, Geneva, and many more. Even in the face of persecution, the Huguenot influence gain... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Clem. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/081957/bk_acx0_081957_sample.mp3.

With another Canadian election slated for early May, 2011, Harperland: The Politics of Control, by Marin Lawrence, is a must read (or hear) before you go to the polls. ´´Harperland,´´ the story Stephen Harper´s first four years in power, soared to the top of the best-seller lists in the first week it was out. Peter C. Newman called it ´´A book of revelations.... This is Stephen Harper unplugged.´´ Don Martin of The National Post declared that it was an excellent book that provides insights, which the Prime Minister could well learn from. In Harperland, Stephen Harper´s governance comes under the microscope of prominent ´´Globe and Mail´´ columnist Lawrence Martin. Focusing on the growth of executive power under Harper and drawing on interviews with prominent insiders, Martin probes the smearing of opponents, the silencing of the public and diplomatic service, the secrecy, the prorogations, the unprecedented centralizing of power, and the attempted muzzling of the media. He examines controversies such as the existence of a secret dirty-tricks handbook, the Chuck Cadman affair, campaign financing, the dismissal of nuclear power head Linda Keen, the Afghan detainees cover-up, the turning of access-to-information laws into barricades to information, and more -- and lets readers draw their own conclusions. Tough but balanced, Harperland offers a clear picture of a skilled politician at a crucial point in Canadian politics. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Puttonen.

When young Ron Blomberg told his friends he wanted to be a Major League Baseball player, they practically laughed him out of town. Jewish kids just did not do that in the late 1950s, with the exception of a rare superstar like Sandy Koufax. Fortunately for Blomberg, his parents were a different story. As long as he was happy, they had no problem with their son growing up to be a doctor or a lawyer or a ballplayer. So, with his parents blessing, he prepared to ride his athletic skills as far as possible.Some 45 years later Ron Blomberg is viewed as a trailblazer. In addition to being the first designated hitter in the history of Major League Baseball - an accident of fate - he was also the first significant Jewish player for the New York Yankees. The only lantzman who preceded him to the Bronx hid behind the pseudonym of Jimmie Reese. Blomberg did not believe in hiding, either from pitchers with overpowering fastballs or from the baseball fans of New York. A witness to cross-burnings and synagogue bombings in his youth, Blomberg felt relieved when New York´s large Jewish population embraced him. He loved people almost as much as he loved to eat. Blomberg wore his religion on his sleeve and jumped at any offer of a free lunch from the beat writers assigned to cover the Yankees. As long as there was a corned-beef sandwich in it for him, he was there. Unfortunately, corned beef could not do for him what spinach did for Popeye. He had great hand-eye coordination, a powerful left-handed stroke, and a willingness to work hard - but he failed to avoid the injury bug. Once billed as ´´the next Mickey Mantle,´´ he managed only 52 home runs in his career. During his time in the Bronx from 1969-77, however, Blomberg witnessed the arrival of both George Steinbrenner and Billy Martin, and watched the Yankees battle themselves as well as their opponents in 1976 as they won their first pennant in 12 years and their first World Series in 15 seasons. Ron Blomberg´s ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alpha Trivette. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/008373/bk_adbl_008373_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
