Seeded among Israel's bohemian fringe of artists and visionaries, Reuven Sofer's Global Dawn project reaches a breathtaking climax on the mystical soil of Jerusalem. Our hero soon immerses us in his passions for women, music, philosophy and technology. The stern daily realities of modern-day Israeli life savagely challenge his path. Reuven's desire to raise planetary awareness in the global community echoes NASA's Digital Earth project, featured in a dedicated Foreword by Dr. Timothy Foresman, a pioneer of the Digital Earth community.

When her toddler's life is risked by the church leaders, Laura knows she has to escape.

After the Parch
6,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It's 2075. California is nothing like we know it. The USA has broken up and California has become an independent refuge dominated by a single omnipotent corporation. Eighteen-year-old Bran, a shepherd, is given a mission to traverse the California republic in 10 days to save his rural community from forfeiting its land. On the way, he teams up with a 17-year-old girl who has the skills and prowess of a warrior, an 11-year-old wild boy with uncanny survival skills, and a wandering musician with a secret revolutionary agenda. After the Parch is a fast-paced, vivid, dystopian fantasy with a chilling resemblance to the way we are, and a vision of what we might become. It's a well-crafted story and the plot flows naturally from one crisis to another, with three-dimensional characters right up to the taut and positive climax.

Succession to Muhammad
40,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In a comprehensive study of early Islamic history, Wilferd Madelung examines the conflict which developed after Muhammad's death for the leadership of the Muslim community. He pursues the history of this conflict through the reign of the four 'Rightly Guided' caliphs to its climax in the first inter-Muslim war. The outcome of the war, which marked the demise of the reign of the Early Companions, resulted in the lasting schism between Sunnite and Shi'ite Islam. Contrary to recent scholarly trends, the author brings out Ali's early claim to legitimate succession, which gained support from the Shi'a, and offers a convincing reinterpretation of early Islamic history. This book will make a major contribution to the debate over succession. Wilferd Madelung's book The Succession to Muhammad has been awarded the Best Book of the Year prize by the Islamic Republic of Iran for the year 1997.

The Crucible
8,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

Arthur Miller's classic parable of mass hysteria draws a chilling parallel between the Salem witch-hunt of 1692 - 'one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history' - and the American anti-communist purges led by Senator McCarthy in the 1950s. The story of how the small community of Salem is stirred into madness by superstition, paranoia and malice, culminating in a violent climax, is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations. A depiction of innocent men and women destroyed by malicious rumour, The Crucible is also a powerful indictment of McCarthyism and the 'frontier mentality' of Cold War America.
