Undercover gegen den Terror

Author: Tom Marcus
Publisher: Riva Verlag
ISBN: 9783959716512
Release Date: 2017-08-14
Genre: Political Science

Tom Marcus wurde vom MI5 rekrutiert, um sein Land zu schützen – undercover gegen interne und externe Bedrohungen, den Terror und zum Schutz der größten Geheimnisse des Landes. Tägliche Entscheidungen, die Leben oder Tod bedeuten. Ein nie enden wollender Kampf, den viele seiner Kollegen nicht überleben sollten. Bei einem seiner Einsätze nahm er die Identität eines verwahrlosten Obdachlosen an – und stellte bei einem Verdächtigen außergewöhnliche Verhaltensweisen fest. Zeichen, die vielleicht niemand außer einem ausgebildeten Agenten bemerkt hätte. Tom ließ das Haus stürmen. Gefunden wurden einige Gewehre und sechs selbstgebaute Bomben. Diese hätten, so zeigte sich später, 60 Schulkinder töten sollen, die sich auf der Rückfahrt von einer Klassenfahrt befanden. Dieser fesselnde Bericht über einen Krieg, der um unserer Sicherheit willen geführt wird, weiht uns in eines der am besten behüteten Geheimnisse Europas ein – den britischen Geheimdienst MI5.

Weltgeschichte to go

Author: Alexander von Schönburg
Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783644122215
Release Date: 2016-04-22
Genre: History

Der Espresso unter den Geschichtsbüchern: stark, gehaltvoll, anregend Eigentlich geht das gar nicht: die ganze Weltgeschichte auf 280 Seiten zu erzählen. Aber Alexander von Schönburg kann’s, und er tut es so elegant und leichtfüßig, dass man plötzlich süchtig wird nach Geschichte. Er nimmt uns mit auf die Reise zu den wichtigsten Städten der Menschheit, von Babylon über Berlin bis New York. Die größten Helden werden benannt und die schlimmsten Schurken. Schönburg erzählt von Kunstwerken, Erfindungen und Ideen der Menschheit, vom Faustkeil bis zum Selfiestick. Zu Beginn, gleichsam zum Warmlaufen, fasst er über zwei Millionen Jahre Menschheitsgeschichte auf zehn Seiten zusammen, geleitet von der Frage: Wie hat es eine eher unbedeutende Affenspezies – in der Nahrungskette irgendwo zwischen Schaf und Löwe – geschafft, sich die Erde untertan zu machen? Überraschende Durchblicke quer durch das Dickicht der Jahrtausende, pointierte Anekdoten und Porträts (was verbindet Wladimir Putin und Karl den Großen?) und verblüffende Einsichten machen das Buch zu einem Leseerlebnis und zu einem echten Schönburg. Was er Ihnen über Geschichte nicht erzählt, werden Sie nicht vermissen.
