Jury duty happens to everyone. When the call came to Graham Burnett, a young historian, he had a shock in store. A Trial by Jury is his startling account of how performing this familiar civic duty challenged him in ways he never thought possible and turned into one of the most consuming experiences of his life. Burnett begins with the story of the trial: a body with multiple stab wounds found in a New York apartment, intimations of cross-dressing, male prostitution, mistaken identity. And then, the unexpected drama: Burnett finds himself appointed the foreman, with the responsibility of leading the increasingly frenetic deliberations within the black box of the jury room. Soon he is sequesteredwhich is to say maroonedwith eleven others, a group of people who view their task, and often one another, with palpable distaste. Among his colleagues: a vacuum-cleaner repairman cum urban missionary, a young actress, and a man apparently floundering in a borderland between real life and daytime television. As Burnett steers the contentious politics of their temporary no-exit society toward the verdict, he undergoes an unexpected awakening. Having been plucked from his cozy nest in the world of books and ideas and then plunged into the netherworld of lurid crime, he learns the limits of what intellect alone can accomplish in the real world. Above all, Burnett discovers firsthand the terrifying ultimate power of the state and the agonies of being asked to do justice within the rigid dictates of the law. Part true crime, part political treatise, part contemplation of right, wrong, and the power of words,A Trial by Juryis a mesmerizing narrative of one man's encounter with crime and punishment, American style. It profoundly affects one's sense of the privilegesand the perilsof citizenship. From the Hardcover edition.

Arthur Sullivan: A Victorian Musician

A Victorian Musician

Author: Arthur Jacobs

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 0429872259

Category: Social Science

Page: 494

Published in 1992. This is a revised, enlarged edition of a book which on its original appearance in 1984 was hailed as a landmark in the study of Victorian musical life. It presents the figure of Sir Arthur Sullivan (1842-1990) not only as the celebrated co-creator of light operas with W.S Gilbert, but as a composer of all kinds of music from symphony and concerto to ballads such as ‘The Lost Chord’ and hymns such as ‘Onward, Christian Soldiers’. A prominent public life, with a knighthood in 1883, is contrasted with an unconventional private life involving a liaison of almost thirty years with an American living in London, Mary Frances Ronalds. The author’s access to Sullivan’s diary held by Yale University and to letters and other documents at the Pierpont Morgan library in New York gives this book both a unique authority and a deep human understanding. A new chapter updates research to the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth, 1992, and incorporates music examples.

Auf einmal stand da eine Armee . . . SEAL-Team 10: eine Elitetruppe. Die Mission: einen Al-Qaida-Führer zur Strecke bringen. Der Feind: Dutzende zu allem entschlossene Taliban-Kämpfer. Vier SEALs gegen eine ganze Armee. Und dann bricht die Hölle los. Die Army schickt Helikopter zur Verstärkung. Neunzehn Männer kommen um, ein einziger kehrt zurück. Dies ist sein Bericht. In einer sternenklaren Nacht im späten Juni 2005 verlassen vier US Navy SEALs ihre Basis im nördlichen Afghanistan in Richtung pakistanische Grenze. Ihr Auftrag: Gefangennahme oder Tötung eines hochrangigen Al-Qaida-Führers, der mit Osama bin Laden operieren und sich in den Bergen versteckt halten soll . . . Lone Survivor ist die Geschichte von Marcus Luttrell, des einzigen Überlebenden der Operation Red Wings. Nicht nur seine drei Kameraden sterben im Gefecht mit einer unterschätzten gegnerischen Truppe, auch die komplette Besatzung des Special-Operations-Aviation-Regiments, das zur Rettung per Hubschrauber losgeschickt wurde, findet den Tod. Nur dank der Hilfe von Einheimischen, die ihn aufnehmen, pflegen und vor den Taliban beschützen, überlebt der schwer verletzte Luttrell. Seine Geschichte handelt von Angst, Tod und grenzenlosem Leid, aber auch von Mut und Treue, von Freundschaft und Hoffnung – und von dem unbedingten Willen zu überleben
