Die Menschheit befindet sich ein einem unerbittlichen Krieg mit den Bugs, Insektenwesen aus den Tiefen des Weltalls, einem Krieg, der alle Lebensbereiche durchdringt. Die Bürgerrechte werden auf der Erde nur jenem zugesprochen, der seinen Militärdienst geleistet hat. Auch die Soldaten an Bord der Rodger Young müssen in den Kampf zeihen. Sie sind Starship Troopers, die Infanteristen in diesem galaktischen Konflikt, und sie trifft der Schrecken, die Einsamkeit und die Angst am härtesten ... 1959 erhielt Robert Heinlein für diesen Roman den Hugo Award, einen der international bedeutendsten Preise der Science Fiction. Seit seinem Erscheinen löst er immer wieder heftige Diskussionen aus. Eines ist jedoch sicher: Er ist einer der spannendsten Romane des Autors und zählt zu seinen Schlüsselwerken. Aufwendig fürs Kino verfilmt wurde das Buch Ende der 90er Jahre von Paul Verhoeven.

The term “cult film” may be difficult to define, but one thing is certain: A cult film is any movie that has developed a rabid following for one reason or another. From highly influential works of pop art like Eraserhead and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! to trash masterpieces such as Miami Connection and Fateful Findings, thousands of movies have earned recognition as cult classics over the years, and new movies rise to cult status every year. So how do viewers searching for the best or most important cult films decide where to start? In 100 Greatest Cult Films, Christopher J. Olson highlights the most provocative, intriguing, entertaining, and controversial films produced over the last century. The movies included here have either earned reputations as bona fide cult classics or have in some way impacted our understanding of cult cinema, often transcending traditional notions of “good” and “bad” while featuring memorable characters, unforgettably shocking scenes, and exceptionally quotable dialogue. With detailed arguments for why these films deserve to be considered among the greatest of all time, Olson provides readers fodder for debate and a jumping-off point for future watching. A thought-provoking and accessible look at dozens of cinematic “treasures,” this resource includes valuable information on the films, creators, and institutions that have shaped cult cinema. Ultimately, The 100 Greatest Cult Films offers readers—from casual cinephiles, film scholars, and avid fans alike—a chance to discover or re-discover some of the most memorable films of all time.

Most of us throughout the course of our everyday lives never step back and examine what is going on around us. We are so caught up on counting the days until Friday or checking our bank accounts online, that we fail to see what is occurring around the globe. For some of you the information contained within this book might sound familiar. Perhaps you read a brief headline or watched a thirty-second news clip on one of the subjects. This feeling of having read or seen something before is perfectly normal, and I promise that this sensation will come over you at least once while reading this book. Due to the vast amount of information our brain takes in on a daily basis, it needs to discard most things we encounter in everyday life. The purpose of Disturbing Times is not only to bring people back those discarded headlines but also to educate the reader on various other global issues. These topics are of great importance and they cannot afford to be forgotten. "Disturbing Times" combines the latest available data from various sources. Its main goal is to prepare humanity for a global future and its potential impact on our lives. This book aims to provoke such critical thinking by presenting a realistic picture of the world that surrounds us. Although at times the facts and figures presented here might be somewhat scary, this is the true reality in which we live. Various people have contributed to the making of Disturbing Times. I would like to thank Dr. Donald Foster-Gross for taking hours upon hours out of his busy schedule to edit my book, and for all his comments and suggestions. I also want to acknowledge Dr Ken Baucom for his advice and guidance.

Stattdessen gewinnt er den Trostpreis, einen Astronautenanzug. Als er dann das erste Mal in den fremdartig schimmernden Anzug schlüpft, wird sein Traum plötzlich wahr, allerdings ganz anders, als Kip es sich ausgemalt hatte: Er wird mitten ins Universum katapultiert und findet sich an Bord eines Raumschiffs wieder – als Gefangener von Piraten, die Böses im Sinn haben und keinen Heller auf sein Leben geben ...
