From the best-selling author of The Bone Collector and Devil's Teardrop comes this spine-chilling new thriller that pits renowned criminalist Lincoln Rhyme against the ultimate opponent - Amelia Sachs, his own brilliant protege. A quadriplegic since a beam crushed his spinal cord years ago, Rhyme is desperate to improve his condition and goes to the University of North Carolina Medical Center for high-risk experimental surgery. In a twenty-four hour period, the sleepy Southern outpost of Tanner's Corner has seen a local teen murdered and two young women abducted. And Ryhme and Sachs are the best chance to find the girls alive. The prime suspect is a teenaged truant known as the Insect Boy, so nicknamed for his disturbing obsession with bugs. Rhyme agrees to find the boy while awaiting his operation. Rhyme's unsurpassed analytical skills and stellar forensic experience, combined with Sachs's exceptional detective legwork, soon snare the perp. But Sachs disagrees with Rhyme's crime analysis and so ensues a battle of wits and forensics between Rhyme and Sachs, his best friend and soul mate. 1. Language: English.

The Complete Rocky Heavyweight Collection
40,49 € *

This is the film that catapulted Sylvester Stallone into the international spotlight and launched one of the most successful series of films in movie history, This is the story of a loser, a two bit boxer from Philadelphia, who gets a second chance in life by being offered an impossible shot at the heavyweight title. Stallone's performance is as powerful as his character's punches in the ring. This is one of the most exciting action movies you will ever see. Rocky is the simple story of a man whom fate chooses for a shot at glory in what has otherwise been an ordinary life. And while this subject matter is nothing new, it was unusual for Hollywood to release an old-fashioned 'feel-good' movie in the seventies, a decade whose films were mostly unconventional in attitude and anti-establishment in tone. Rocky is, of course, a fairy tale, but by grounding its characters in an everyday reality, the filmmakers were able to make them seem real and alive. And making the major contribution to that sense of reality was Sylvester Stallone, an out-of-work actor/writer whose faith in himself took him from utter obscurity to world-wide fame and fortune virtually overnight. Rocky II It's the rematch of the century as Rocky Balboa takes on Apollo Creed in this powerful follow-up to one of the most acclaimed movies in film history. Writer-director-star Sylvester Stallone succeeds in creating a powerful feel-good movie. After club fighter Rocky Balboa (Stallone) goes the distance with the world heavyweight champion, boxing fans clamor for a rematch. But Rocky, having sustained massive injuries in the bout, announces his retirement. Though he tries to make a new life for himself, Rocky realizes that he can't escape his true calling. The ring beckons once more, and the Italian Stallion must prepare for the fight of his life. Rocky III Rocky battles his most powerful adversary yet - the ferocious Clubber Lang (Mr. T) - in this hard-hitting actioner that comes out swinging with adventure, humor and emotionally charged human drama. For what may be the most exciting and fast-paced film in the series, Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars with explosive passion and intensity. As Rocky Balboa (Stallone) fights his way into the hearts of millions, life couldn't be better. He scores ten consecutive wins, lands lucrative endorsement contracts and becomes famous throughout the world. But when Clubber Lang KOs Rocky in a humiliating defeat, it becomes apparent that the Italian Stallion has lost his edge. Considering hanging up his gloves, Rocky receives encouragement from an unlikely ally: his old nemesis, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). With Creed's help, Rocky strives to regain the eye of the tiger before confronting Lang in a grueling rematch for the world heavyweight championship. Rocky IV East meets West when Rocky takes on a vicious Soviet fighter who literally killed his last opponent! Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars in this war between nations, in which the only battle is fought in a boxing ring. Rocky Balboa (Stallone) proudly holds the world heavyweight boxing championship, but a new challenger has stepped forward: Drago (Dolph Lundgren), a six-foot-four, 261-pound fighter who has the backing of the Soviet Union. This time, Rocky's training regimen takes him to icy Siberia, where he prepares for a globally televised match in the heart of Moscow. But nothing can truly prepare him for what he's about to face - a powerfully charged fight to the finish, in which he must defend not only himself, but also the honor of his country! Rocky V The Italian Stallion rediscovers his roots in this exciting, thrill-packed drama that reunites Sylvester Stallone with the Oscar-winning director of the original Rocky. Upon returning home from his latest triumph, Rocky Balboa (Stallone) learns that all his money has been lost by an unscrupulous financial advisor. To make matters worse, his fight-related injuries force his retirement from the ring. So Rocky, his wife Adrian (Talia Shire) and his son Rocky Jr. (Sage Stallone) move to their old, low-rent neighborhood in South Philadelphia. There, the fighter must resolve the deep-rooted resentment held by his son, a bitterness that grows when Rocky trains Tommy Gunn (Tommy Morrison), a young boxer who soon rises to national prominence. When Tommy turns against his mentor and publicly taunts him, Rocky knows he must fight once more. Rocky Balboa Armed with a highly credible heart-wrenching story, Sylvester Stallone leaps back in to the ring in this knockout final chapter as one of the most iconic characters in the history of motion pictures! Since retiring, Rocky reminisces about his glory days for the locals at his Philly diner, Adrian's. But his quiet world is shattered when the current reigning champion (Antonio Tarver) loses to a virtual, in his-prime Balboa in a computer-simulated match and challenges the retired Italian Stallion to the real thing! Never one to back down, Rocky does the unthinkable and agrees to the fight of his life...pushing himself to the breaking point to go the distance one last time.

Franz Josef Strauß
48,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Franz Josef Strauß (1915-1988) war zweifellos eine der prägendsten Gestalten der Bonner Republik. Nach seiner Zeit als Minister für besondere Aufgaben (1953-1955) leitete er nacheinander das Atomministerium (1955-1956), das Verteidigungsministerium (1956-1962) und das Finanzministerium (1966-1969), bevor er als bayerischer Ministerpräsident (1978-1988) bei den Bundestagswahlen 1980 für die CDU/CSU-Fraktion als Kanzlerkandidat ins Rennen ging. Als Politiker war Strauß stets mehr als ein bloßer Ressortminister oder bayerischer Landesvater, sondern immer auch ein einflussreicher deutscher Außen- und Europapolitiker. Das vorliegende Buch zeigt, dass Strauß als überzeugter Europäer zudem ein Wegbereiter der deutschen Einheit war. Die Untersuchung der Kombination seiner Deutschland-, Ost- und Europapolitik schließt eine bestehende wissenschaftliche Lücke. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf der Vermittlung der Milliardenbürgschaften der Bundesrepublik an die DDR zu Beginn der 1980er Jahre. Hierzu wurden bislang unberücksichtigte Quellen- und Archivmaterialien ausgewertet. Strauß' Ideen und Wirken erscheinen dadurch dreißig Jahre nach der Wiedervereinigung in einem anderen Licht, sodass ihm selbst der frühere politische Gegner Egon Bahr posthum attestierte: "Chapeau! In Ordnung!" Zusätzlich aufgewertet wird der Band durch zahlreiche Gespräche mit politischen Weggefährten und Zeitgenossen.Franz Josef Strauss (1915-1988) was without doubt one of the most influential figures of the West German Republic. After his time as Minister for Special Affairs (1953-1955) he was successively head of the Ministry for Atomic Issues (1955-1956), the Defence Ministry (1956-1962) and the Finance Ministry (1966-1969). Later, during his time as Prime Minister of Bavaria (1978-1988), he stood as a CDU/CSU faction candidate for the Federal Chancellorship in the 1980 election. As a politician Strauss was always more than just a departmental minister or Bavarian premier, being also a constantly influential German figure in domestic and European politics.This book shows that Strauss was a committed European and a trailblazer for German unity. By examining the combination of his policies on Germany, the Eastern Bloc and Europe, it fills a significant gap in the academic literature. Particular attention is given to the granting by the West German state of bonds worth billions of marks to East Germany in the early 1980s, making use of previously overlooked sources and archives. Thirty years after Reunification, this places Strauss's ideas and actions in a new light, so that even his former political opponent Egon Bahr posthumously attested: "Hats off! Well done!" The book's value is enhanced by many interviews with political colleagues and contemporaries.

National Resistance Movement of Iran

The National Movement of Iranian Resistance (NAMIR) was founded in the early 1980s by Shapour Bakhtiar, the last prime minister of Iran under the Monarchy before it was overthrown in the February 1979 revolution. Even though he was an opponent to the Shah, he assumed the post of prime minister "to save his country". Bakhtiar had attempted to forestall Ayatollah Khomeini's religious movement by introducing democratic reforms that had long been demanded by the moderate opposition to the Shah's dictatorial regime. Ultimately, he failed to gain any mass support and he was forced out of power. After months of hiding, he fled the country and became an active enemy of the newly formed Islamic Republic, which had established itself after the fall of the Monarchy. In August 1991, Bakhtiar was killed in France, where he was living in exile.
