Dass sie jüdische Wurzeln hat, erfährt Randi Crott erst, als sie erwachsen ist. Und genau wie ihre Mutter 1942 soll auch sie jetzt über zwei Jahrzehnte nach dem Krieg mit niemandem darüber sprechen. Bis zum Tode des Vaters bleibt seine Geschichte verborgen. Weggepackt in alten Briefen und Dokumenten.
Mit großer Leidenschaft rekonstruiert die Autorin den Lebensweg ihrer Eltern. Er reicht von der Verfolgung der Juden in Deutschland über die deutsche Besatzung in Norwegen bis hin zu den Problemen der Vergangenheitsbewältigung nach dem Krieg. Randi Crott hat sich in einem bewegenden Buch auf die Suche nach der Geschichte ihrer Familie gemacht. Ohne Hitler hätte es mich nicht gegeben. Welches Gefühl ist für so einen Fall reserviert?
Ich bin auf der Welt, weil meine norwegische Mutter sich in einen deutschen Besatzungssoldaten verliebt hat. Aber es gibt noch eine andere Wahrheit, die mir lange genug verschwiegen wurde. RANDI CROTT

Joseph T. Fuhrmann, „Rasputin: The Untold Story“

ISBN: 1118172760 | 2012 | EPUB | 320 pages | 2 MB

A century after his death, Grigory Rasputin remains fascinating: the Russian peasant with hypnotic eyes who befriended Tsar Nicholas II and helped destroy the Russian Empire, but the truth about his strange life has never fully been told. Written by the world’s leading authority on Rasputin, this new biography draws on previously closed Soviet archives to offer new information on Rasputin’s relationship with Empress Alexandra, sensational revelations about his sexual conquests, a re-examination of his murder, and more.
Based on long-closed Soviet archives and the author’s decades of research, encompassing sources ranging from baptismal records and forgotten police reports to notes written by Rasputin and personal letters
Reveals new information on Rasputin’s family history and strange early life, religious beliefs, and multitudinous sexual adventures as well as his relationship with Empress Alexandra, ability to heal the haemophiliac tsarevich, and more
Includes many previously unpublished photos, including contemporary studio photographs of Rasputin and samples of his handwriting
Written by historian Joesph T. Fuhrmann, a Rasputin expert whose 1990 biography Rasputin: A Life was widely praised as the best on the subject
Synthesizing archival sources with published documents, memoirs, and other studies of Rasputin into a single, comprehensive work, Rasputin: The Untold Story will correct a century’s worth of misconception and error about the life and death of the famous Siberian mystic and healer and the decline and fall of Imperial Russia.

Invisible Armies – An Epic History of Guerrilla Warfare From Ancient Times to the Present

Liveright Publishing | 2013 | 827 pages | ISBN: 9780871406880 | ePub (e-book) | 6 MB

Invisible Armies presents an entirely original narrative of warfare, which demonstrates that, far from the exception, loosely organized partisan or guerrilla warfare has been the dominant form of military conflict throughout history. New York Times best-selling author and military historian Max Boot traces guerrilla warfare and terrorism from antiquity to the present, narrating nearly thirty centuries of unconventional military conflicts. Filled with dramatic analysis of strategy and tactics, as well as many memorable characters—from Italian nationalist Guiseppe Garibaldi to the “Quiet American,”.

Christopher Doran – Making the World Safe for Capitalism: How Iraq Threatened the US Economic Empire and had to be Destroyed

Published: 2012-05-16 | ISBN: 0745332234, 0745332226 | PDF | 296 pages | 2.82 MB

The Iraq war defined the first decade of the twenty-first century – leading to mass protests and raising profound questions about domestic politics and the use of military force. Yet most explanations of the war have a narrow focus either on political personalities or oil.
Christopher Doran provides a unique perspective, arguing that the drive to war came from the threat Iraq might pose to American economic hegemony if the UN sanctions regime was ended. Doran argues that this hegemony is rooted in third world debt and corporate market access. It was protection of these arrangements that motivated US action, not Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction or a simplistic desire to seize its oil.
This book will provide new insights on the war which still casts a shadow over global politics, and will have wide appeal to all those concerned about the Middle East, world peace and global development.

Alan Ryan, „On Politics: A History of Political Thought: From Herodotus to the Present“

ISBN: 0871404656 | 2012 | EPUB/MOBI | 1152 pages | 2 MB/3 MB

Three decades in the making, one of the most ambitious and comprehensive histories of political philosophy in nearly a century.
Both a history and an examination of human thought and behavior spanning three thousand years, On Politics thrillingly traces the origins of political philosophy from the ancient Greeks to Machiavelli in Book I and from Hobbes to the present age in Book II. Whether examining Lord Acton’s dictum that “absolute power corrupts absolutely” or explicating John Stuart Mill’s contention that it is “better to be a human dissatisfied than a pig satisfied,” Alan Ryan evokes the lives and minds of our greatest thinkers in a way that makes reading about them a transcendent experience. Whether writing about Plato or Augustine, de Toqueville or Thomas Jefferson, Ryan brings a wisdom to his text that illuminates John Dewey’s belief that the role of philosophy is less to see truth than to enhance experience. With this unparalleled tour de force, Ryan emerges in his own right as one of the most influential political philosophers of our time.
