Knight in Paper Armor (eBook, ePUB)
5,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Billy Jakobek has always been different. Born with strange and powerful psychic abilities, he has grown up in the laboratories of Thorne Century, a ruthless megacorporation that economically, socially, and politically dominates American society. Every day, Billy absorbs the emotional energies, dreams, and traumas of everyone he meets-from his grandmother's memories of the Holocaust, to the terror his sheer existence inflicts upon his captors-and he yearns to break free, so he can use his powers to help others. Natalia Gonzalez, a rebellious artist and daughter of Guatemalan immigrants, lives in Heaven's Hole, an industrial town built inside a meteor crater, where the poverty-stricken population struggles to survive the nightmarish working conditions of the local Thorne Century factory. Natalia takes care of her ailing mother, her grandmother, and her two younger brothers, and while she dreams of escape, she knows she cannot leave her family behind. When Billy is transferred to Heaven's Hole, his chance encounter with Natalia sends shockwaves rippling across the blighted landscape. The two outsiders are pitted against the all-powerful monopoly, while Billy experiences visions of an otherworldly figure known as the Shape, which prophesizes an apocalyptic future that could decimate the world they know.

March of the Living
45,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The March of the Living, is an annual educational program which brings students from all over the world to Poland, where they explore the remnants of the Holocaust. On Holocaust Memorial Day (Yom Hashoah), thousands of participants march silently from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest Nazi German concentration camp complex built during World War II. Marchers come from countries as diverse as Panama, Turkey, Estonia and New Zealand. The program was established in 1988 and takes place annually around April and May, immediately following Passover, for two weeks. At the climax of the program is the march, which is designed to contrast with the death marches which occurred towards the end of World War II. When Nazi Germany withdrew its soldiers from forced-labour camps, inmates usually already starving and stricken by oppressive work were forced to march hundreds of miles in the snow, while those who lagged behind or fell were shot. This contrast of the living walking the path of a death march serves to illustrate the continued existence of world Jewry despite Nazi Germans attempts at their obliteration.

On Anxiety
36,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

We frequently hear that we live in an age of anxiety, from 'therapy culture,' the Atkins diet and child anti-depressants to gun culture and weapons of mass destruction. While Hollywood regularly cashes in on teenage anxiety through its 'Scream' franchise, pharmaceutical companies churn out new drugs such as Paxil to combat newly diagnosed anxieties. 'On Anxiety' takes a fascinating, psychological plunge behind the scenes of our panic-stricken culture and into anxious minds, asking who and what is responsible. Putting anxiety on the couch, Renata Salecl asks some much-needed questions: Is anxiety about the absence of authority or too much of it? Do the media report anxiety or create it? Are drugs a cure for anxiety or its cause? Is anxiety about being yourself or someone else, and is anxiety really the ultimate obstacle to happiness? Drawing on vivid examples from film such as the 'X Files' and 'Cyrano de Bergerac,' drugs used on soldiers to combat anxiety, the anxieties of love and motherhood, and fake Holocaust memoirs, Renata Salecl argues that what really produces anxiety is the attempt to get rid of it. Erudite and compelling, 'On Anxiety' is essential reading for anyone interested in philosophy, psychology and the cultural phenomenon of anxiety today.

Whitethorn
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 'Poem for Jenne,' which opens Jacqueline Osherow's ambitious and challenging new collection, a neighbor has planted larkspur and delphinium in the poet's yard and is tending them hoping to bring color and light into a household stricken by personal tragedy. As the bright blue, star-shaped flowers bloom for a second time, the poet writes, 'earth's reaching for her heavens, I for words / or any chink of rapture I can claim.' The pervasive theme, in this poem and throughout Whitethorn, is that human suffering may be irremediable, yet in nature and language one may find a key to unlock the mysteries of sorrow. Osherow searches for that cipher by exploring a range of suffering, from the personal to the historical and cultural. In the poem 'Orders of Infinity' she visits Treblinka and, in her inability to count the stones or quantify the real loss of the Holocaust, ponders the impossibility of imagining the unborn generations of the victims' descendants, an infinity of lives not lived, 'undreamed daydreams, mute conversations, ungratified indulgences, failed hints . . .' In Whitethorn, a book of enormous scope and emotional intelligence, Osherow unflinchingly examines the pain of her own personal history and courageously probes the greater mystery of evil and suffering in the world.
