There was probably only one person who could make Sarah Barcant, successful prosecutor, leave New York and return home to Smitsrivier, the small town in South Africa she left years before. Ben. Her lawyer mentor and inspiration; the man who encouraged her to get out and know the world now needs her back, to help him with one last case, part of the Truth Commission. In the back of a van, handcuffed, Dirk Hendrickes is being driven to the police station where once he was proud to call himself deputy. Later, down the same hot,dry road, will come Alex Mpondo, alternating between cursing Dirk and feeling sick at the idea of facing him, his torturer. And in Smitsrivier: James Sizela, who has passed years waiting for the moment when the man he is certain killed his son, will be forced to tell where the body lies. The people who are about to meet their pasts will not experience the real truth-telling in the court room, at the public show. The real truth will be felt offstage...

Forty pilot whales lie stranded on Darlington Beach, Tasmania. Marine conservation biologist Andrew Irvine knows he must act fast... The Bible teaches that as the whale was made for the ocean, men and women were made for God. Our relationship with him is the environment in which we are free to be fully human. Author Mike Cain unpacks Jesus' claims in John's Gospel and shows us why they cannot be ignored: sin, forgiveness and restoration affect us personally. With humour, originality, passion and sensitivity, Mike asks us to look again at Jesus: the real-life version, not the caricature.

Zupan, world-class athlete, extreme thrill-seeker, unapologetic hardnut and star of the award-winning documentary "Murderball," credits the eye-wateringly violent sport with saving his life. Told at a frantic pace in a powerful voice, and peppered with sex, bar fights, training, grunge metal and tattoos. Zupan's story is by turns funny, romantic, angry and inspiring.

The Last of the White Ants

The book opens with a young man applying for and obtaining a post in the Colonial Civil Service in Nyasaland (now called Malawi) a few years after the end of the Second World War. The long and memorable journey from Britain by boat, train and truck was shared by three other recruits destined for employment in Zomba, Nyasaland. Before he left Britain, the main character in the book, Sinclair Brown, had some doubts about the value of colonialism. These doubts increased as he worked, played and loved through the ten years leading up to Independence. The story is focused on the British Overseas Civil Servants who made up 99% of the white population of Zomba . It is about relationships, the work arena and social events that are woven into the relentlessly growing and threatening political power of President Banda. It is a light, easy-to-read book but it has been written as a public acknowledgement and perhaps memorial to the magnificent British Civil Servants who carried the Union Jack into the heat and dust of Africa. Was it all worth it? Maybe yes, maybe no, but the dedication and belief of those valiant men and women must never be under-estimated or forgotten.

Das schillernde Leben der Boxlegende ganz neu erzählt Muhammad Ali – drei Mal unumstrittener Boxweltmeister – ist eine der schillerndsten Figuren des 20. Jahrhunderts, seine Geschichte verknüpft mit den großen politischen und kulturellen Konflikten seiner Zeit. Für viele ist er ein Symbol für den Kampf für Freiheit und gegen Unterdrückung. Dem Menschen hinter dieser Heldensaga sind wir jedoch nie nahe gekommen. Der Bestsellerautor und Sportlerbiograph Jonathan Eig erzählt dieses außergewöhnliche Leben auf der Basis bisher unbekannter Quellen noch einmal neu. Der »echte Ali« war Pazifist und Boxer, Muslim und treuloser Ehemann, ein Schwarzer, der zum Symbol für den Kampf gegen Rassismus aufstieg, aber seinesgleichen demütigte – ein Leben voller Brüche und Widersprüche.

Philosophie fürs Leben

... und für andere gefährliche Situationen

Page: 400

Mit Sokrates und Co. auf Entdeckungsreise zu sich selbst Philosophie muss keine verstaubte Wissenschaft sein, die verschrobene Exzentriker in ihrem Elfenbeinturm praktizieren! Sie kann vielmehr zur unerschöpflichen Quelle der Inspiration werden, um die Herausforderungen des Lebens zu meistern. So haben es uns die großen Philosophen der Antike eindrucksvoll vor Augen geführt. Ob Sokrates, Aristoteles oder Diogenes – jeder von ihnen steht für einen nachvollziehbaren und gangbaren Weg, wie der Mensch zu sich selbst finden, ein erfülltes Leben führen und in Einklang mit anderen Menschen leben kann. Die Essenz ihrer Lehren ist auch für das moderne Leben richtungweisend. Um dies zu verdeutlichen, bettet Jules Evans seine Darstellung in reale Geschichten heutiger Menschen ein: Menschen, die mithilfe der Philosophie selbst schwierigste Situationen mit Mut und Würde bestanden. Dieses Buch bietet Philosophie für die Straße, den Arbeitsplatz, für Freundschaft, Liebe – eine Philosophie für Jung und Alt.
