Bob Woodward, die Ikone des investigativen Journalismus in den USA, hat alle amerikanischen Präsidenten aus nächster Nähe beobachtet. Nun nimmt er sich den derzeitigen Präsidenten vor und enthüllt den erschütternden Zustand des Weißen Hauses unter Donald Trump. Woodward beschreibt, wie dieser Präsident Entscheidungen trifft, er berichtet von eskalierenden Debatten im Oval Office und in der Air Force One, dem volatilen Charakter Trumps und dessen Obsessionen und Komplexen. Woodwards Buch ist ein Dokument der Zeitgeschichte: Hunderte Stunden von Interviews mit direkt Beteiligten, Gesprächsprotokolle, Tagebücher, Notizen – auch von Trump selbst – bieten einen dramatischen Einblick in die Machtzentrale der westlichen Welt, in der vor allem eines herrscht: Furcht. Woodward ist das Porträt eines amtierenden amerikanischen Präsidenten gelungen, das es in dieser Genauigkeit noch nicht gegeben hat.

"The Bitter Bierce". Siegeszug der zynischen Vernunft Der amerikanische Schriftsteller Ambrose Bierce (1842-Weihnachten/Neujahr 1913/14) hatte nicht nur eine scharfe Zunge, sondern auch eine spitze Feder. Er war einer der schillerndsten Gestalten im literarischen Amerika des 19. Jahrhunderts - die personifizierte Provokation und ein gehässiger Zyniker, der kein Thema ausließ. Ganz gleich, ob es um allgemeine, kleine oder große Schwächen des Menschengeschlechts ging - seinem Hohn war nichts heilig. Berühmt wurde er mit seinem "Wörterbuch des Teufels", einer Sammlung galliger und pointiert-geistreicher Aphorismen.

The story of Charles Haddon Spurgeon's life is nothing less than titanic. Within 2 years and 6 months of accepting the pastorate of the New Park Street Chapel as a boy of 19, the Sunday service grew from 242 to over 7,000 in attendance. What can account for the meteoric rise in popularity? Why did so many wish to hear his sermons? It is the same reason why one ought to study the sermons of Spurgeon to this day: in a famished land of moralism, he preached the bread of Jesus Christ. Containing the first three volumes of the sixty-three volumes published from the Metropolitan Tabernacle pulpit, this book holds 164 sermons, 'as plump as a partridge, and as full of meat as an egg.' David A. Attebury is currently pursuing a Masters of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

But now she’s not only being seen, she’s getting involved. Recent attacks against nonhuman Fatae have escalated into hate crimes against magic users in general—humans included. With the Mage Council distracted by internal power struggles, Wren reluctantly steps up as spokesperson for the fragilely united Fatae and lonejack communities. And, because the cosmos deems her without enough complications, her partner-lover Sergei is drowning in his own problems. And she can’t help him—she’s the cause. With lives on the line—including her own—Wren is going to have to break the lonejack credo, ditch her long-cherished invisibility and take a stand. But burning bridges can be deadly… Originally published in 2007

Schlimmer als befürchtet Wo steuert diese Präsidentschaft hin? Und vor allem: Welche Folgen birgt sie für uns? David Cay Johnston, einer der besten Kenner des amtierenden amerikanischen Präsidenten, zieht nach dem ersten Jahr mit Donald Trump eine düstere Bilanz: Die Lage der Wirtschaft ist desolat, die globale Sicherheit in permanenter Bedrohung, das Alltagsleben spürbar eingeschränkt. Ein schockierendes Buch, nicht nur über den Präsidenten und die amerikanische Gesellschaft, sondern auch über die Instabilität der politischen Weltlage.

Virtuos erzählt die Schriftstellerin C.E. Morgan von den Menschen, die das Erbe der amerikanischen Geschichte in sich tragen, und erschafft damit ein an Faulkner erinnerndes, großes modernes Epos. Henry Forge und seine Tochter Henrietta haben einen Traum: Sie wollen das beste Rennpferd aller Zeiten züchten. Die Familie Forge gehört zu den ältesten und einflussreichsten Pferdezüchterdynastien von Kentucky, ihr Vollblut Hellsmouth bringt exzellente Vorraussetzungen mit. Doch als Allmon Shaughnessy auf der Farm anheuert, ein ehrgeiziger junger Schwarzer, und sich Henrietta in ihn verliebt, werden Kräfte freigesetzt, die seit Jahrhunderten das Leben in den Südstaaten bestimmt haben und immer noch machtvoll sind. Angst, Vorurteile und sexuelles Verlangen, Rassismus und Wut, die Kluft zwischen Arm und Reich, Unterdrückung, ja Gewalt sind die ständigen Begleiter dieses Lebens im Schatten der Sklaverei, die untrennbar verbunden ist mit der amerikanischen Geschichte.
