Diamond Select Star Wars Praetorian Guard 1/6 S...
183,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

The Praetorian Guard were an elite squad of First Order warriors assigned to guard Supreme Leader Snoke. There eight sentinels that divided into four pairs and each pairing had a different helmet and unique weapons. These crimson armored warriors are reminiscent of the Emperor's Royal Guard, but unlike those stoic sentinels these elite fighters spring into action when their master is threatened. This particular guard is armed with a Bilari Electro-Chain Whip. An electro-plasma filament is threaded through the whip's articulated segments and houses enough power to kill and opponent. The whip, at rest, is solid like a staff and can be used like a bludgeon in combat. Designed and sculpted using the original film costumes and on-set scan data, our 1:6th scale Praetorian Guard is as authentic as you can get. Every detail of the character and costume, every armor segment, every fold, every ridge of the mesh on the helmet have been captured in this high-quality, limited edition, hand-painted, 1:6th scale resin statue from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This piece is packaged with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity and complemented by a gloss black display base. Features: From Star Wars: The Last Jedi Designed and sculpted using the original film costumes and on-set scan data 1:6th scale Limited edition Hand-painted Hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity Gloss black display base

The Copyright Wars: Three Centuries of Trans-At...
9,95 € *
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.

Kenobi: Star Wars
8,24 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The Republic has fallen. Sith Lords rule the galaxy. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi has lost everything . . . Everything but hope. Tatooine-a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy. Known to locals only as "Ben," the bearded and robed offworlder is an enigmatic stranger who keeps to himself, shares nothing of his past, and goes to great pains to remain an outsider. But as tensions escalate between the farmers and a tribe of Sand People led by a ruthless war chief, Ben finds himself drawn into the fight, endangering the very mission that brought him to Tatooine. Ben-Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, hero of the Clone Wars, traitor to the Empire, and protector of the galaxy's last hope-can no more turn his back on evil than he can reject his Jedi training. And when blood is unjustly spilled, innocent lives threatened, and a ruthless opponent unmasked, Ben has no choice but to call on the wisdom of the Jedi-and the formidable power of the Force-in his never-ending fight for justice. Praise for Kenobi: Star Wars "Buy this book right now. . . . [This novel] manages to explore the depths of Ben Kenobi but still maintains the aura of mystery around his character."-Tosche Station "Addictive, engrossing . . . wildly entertaining . . . There are plenty of twists, turns, and surprises. . . . John Jackson Miller creates a story that reaches new heights."-Roqoo Depot "Brilliant . . . This is Star Wars fiction at its absolute best."-Examiner "Enthralling . . . almost impossible to put down."-Eucantina

Henry of Guise: The States of Blois (eBook, ePUB)
0,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This historical novel features the turbulent final days and the death of Henry I, Duke of Guise (1550-1588), who was a key figure in the French Wars of Religion between Catholics and Huguenots. In 1576 he founded the Catholic League to prevent the heir, King Henry of Navarre, head of the Huguenot movement, from succeeding to the French throne. A powerful opponent of the queen mother, Catherine de' Medici, he was assassinated by the bodyguards of her son, King Henry III in the conflict known as The War of the Three Henrys (1587-1589). The novel focuses, however, on the events from 12th of May, 1588, the famous day of the barricades, when the Duke of Guise had the crown of France within his grasp, and did not close his hand. Some have called it weakness, some virtue, some moderation, some indecision; and in fact, whatever view is taken of it, there are points in which it is opposed to the general character of the Duke, giving to these events a certain layer of mystery.

How Wars End: Why We Always Fight the Last Batt...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1991, the United States Army trounced the Iraqi army in battle, only to stumble blindly into postwar turmoil. Then, in 2003, the United States did it again. How could this happen? How could the strongest power in modern history fight two wars against the same opponent in just over a decade, win lightning victories both times, and yet still be woefully unprepared for the aftermath? Because Americans always forget the political aspects of war. Time and again, argues Gideon Rose in this penetrating look at American wars over the last century, our leaders have focused more on beating up the enemy than on creating a stable postwar environment. What happened in Iraq was only the most prominent example of this phenomenon, not an exception to the rule. Woodrow Wilson fought a war to make the world safe for democracy but never asked himself what democracy actually meant and then dithered as Germany slipped into chaos. Franklin Roosevelt resolved not to repeat Wilson's mistakes but never considered what would happen to his own elaborate postwar arrangements should America's wartime marriage of convenience with Stalin break up after the shooting stopped. The Truman administration casually established voluntary prisoner repatriation as a key American war aim in Korea without exploring whether it would block an armistice - which it did for almost a year and a half. The Kennedy and Johnson administrations dug themselves deeper and deeper into Vietnam without any plans for how to get out. Drawing on vast research, including extensive interviews with participants in recent wars, Rose re-creates the choices that presidents and their advisers have confronted during the final stages of each major conflict from World War I through Iraq. He puts listeners in the room with U.S. officials as they make decisions that affect millions of lives and shape the modern world - seeing what they saw, hearing what they heard, feeling what they felt. 1.
