Whip-smart, and with a ripped-from-the-headlines attitude, this book is a call to arms, demonstrating the unique ability of graphic design to speak truth to power. Part personal history, part design philosophy, and part advocacy, this volume showcases the arresting work of Oliver Munday. Employing humor and menace in equal measure, Munday wields graphic design as a tool of empowerment, activism, and resistance. Drawing from the history and utility of twentieth- century agitprop, from Russian Constructivism to the Black Panthers, Munday updates a timeless medium for the social media age with his stark and often unsettling imagery. Drawing on the madness of the 24-hour news cycle, Munday´s work has been featured on the op-ed pages of the New York Times, the New Yorker, Time Magazine, and the Atlantic. Munday exploits a digital platform to poke fun at the 2016 presidential election, renounces warfare in the age of drones, and examines the tragic legacies of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner, offering a perspective that must not be overlooked. His design, reflecting influences from Paul Rand to Globe Poster, champions a think more, design less philosophy with the ultimate goal to provoke contem-plation and even meaningful action.

By the best-selling author of The Dress Lodger, Sheri Holman’s new and most ambitious novel to date, Witches on the Road Tonight, uncovers the secrets and lies that echo through three generations of one Appalachian family. It is a deeply human, urgent exploration of America’s doomed love affair with fear. On the eve of World War II, eight-year-old Eddie Alley lies in bed watching his first horror movie, hand-cranked and flickering on the bare wall of a backwoods cabin. In 2011, Eddie’s daughter, Wallis, an anchorwoman for a 24-hour news channel, lies in bed with a stranger, spinning ghost stories. Between these two nights winds the story of the Alley family - Eddie’s mother, Cora, an Appalachian mountain witch who slips out of her skin after nightfall; Captain Casket, Eddie’s alter ego, a campy 1970’s TV horror-movie host; and Jasper, the orphaned boy Eddie brings home, who is determined to destroy Eddie’s illusions even if it means destroying himself. Deftly moving from the rural, Depression-era South to modern New York City, Holman teases out the dark compulsions and desperate longings that can blur the line between love and betrayal. Witches on the Road Tonight is an unflinching story that digs at the roots of myth - both familial and societal - and beautifully renders our perpetual yearning to make sense of the past in our present. 1.

Yellowstone is controlled by nature. Its beauty is breathless and tranquil. Crystal clear streams flow. Buffalo roam freely. It´s what´s happening beneath that will bring hellfire! The Yellowstone series, a new disaster thriller from international best-selling author Bobby Akart, takes the listener on a thrill ride as a cataclysmic event of extinction level proportions ticks away like a time bomb, awaiting its moment. Millions of visitors visit the Yellowstone National Park every year blissfully unaware they are on top of the greatest killer man has ever known - the Yellowstone supervolcano. Beneath this primal allure simmers a catastrophic threat. A caldera the size of Mount Everest, created hundreds of thousand of years ago, holds back super-heated magma, rising and falling, looking for release. Scientists agree. The eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano is overdue for an eruption. Events have been set into motion that lit the fuse of the greatest disaster mankind has ever known. Is it going to happen? Yes. Do we know when? Anytime, or not within our lifetime, hopefully. But if it does...The Yellowstone series is a wake-up call for those who disregard natural disasters as a threat. For most, the dangers we face from nature are not considered a disaster until they become a human catastrophe - quantified by body counts and economic damages. Otherwise, in most people´s point of view, it is merely another blip in the 24-hour news cycle. The eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano will be more than a spectacle to grab our attention. It will be the end of the world as we know it. About the Yellowstone series: Volcanoes are the Earth´s way of letting off steam. While most people look at volcanic eruptions as natural disasters, the fact of the matter is, without them, the Earth would explode. Deep beneath the surface of the planet, excess heat builds up, finding a way to vent. Like an overcrowded bus on a hot summer day, the 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Abernathy.

Serial Killers: 2 in 1 Box Set: Exploring the H...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Serial killer as a term can be difficult to define. Different criminal investigation units typically require two, three, or more attributable killings over a period of time before an individual can be considered to have joined the ranks of the serial killers. However, it is not really the numbers which can interest so many people and scare others. Instead, it is the often random nature of the killings. Rather than crimes of passion, crimes of financial reward, or instances when an individual has reached the end of their emotional tether, the crimes of serial killers have often been planned days, weeks, or months in advance. Targets can be random, but the killings are often planned in great detail. From cannibalism to mental health concerns, from ritualistic witchcraft to a simple interest in violence, learning what motivates these people can offer both insight and further confusion. Serial killers are big business. From the countless books, films, and television programs to the 24-hour news networks, there is something about these mass murderers that catches the eye and catches the attention. While many people are familiar with the better-known killers like John Wayne Gacy or Jack the Ripper, this is not the end of the story. There are so many examples of serial killers from around the world that many of them have simply been forgotten about. But that does not make their crimes any less serious. Instead, some of these serial killers committed heinous acts above and beyond those we have come to expect when thinking about the worst psychopaths in living memory. In cases such as these, the truth is often stranger than fiction. For every Hannibal Lecter or Norman Bates, the murders committed by the people detailed in this book are often more extreme, violent, and off-putting than anything you might find in fiction. 1.

Serial killers are big business. From the endless books, films, and television programs to the fascination of the 24-hour news networks, there is something about these mass murderers that catches the eye and catches the attention. While many people are familiar with the better known killers like John Wayne Gacy or Jack the Ripper, this is not the end of the story. There are so many examples of serial killers from around the world that many of them have simply been forgotten about. But that does not make their crimes any less serious. Instead, some of these serial killers committed heinous acts above and beyond those we have come to expect when thinking about the worst psychopaths in living memory. In cases such as these, the truth is often stranger than fiction. For every Hannibal Lecter or Norman Bates, the murders committed by the people detailed in this book are often more extreme, violent, and off-putting than anything you might find in fiction. As we delve further and further into the book, we will begin to see not only the extremities of the crimes, but the difficulty that the authorities face when trying to catch a killer. With so many serial killers on the record books of human history, it is a wonder that we have caught as many as we have. Even in the cases where no one has ever been arrested for the crimes, we can learn a lot about the mindsets of the individuals involved. As we travel further into the minds of the forgotten serial killers, we will not only learn more about what turns people into violent mass murderers, but we will learn how these individuals are shaped and treated by society. The morbid fascination we have with serial killers is matched only by the violence of the crimes in question. So, listen and find out more! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charles D. Baker.

Live from Downing Street , Hörbuch, Digital, 1,...

The relationship between those who wield power and those whose job it is to tell us what they are doing has always been fraught with tension. Politicians now expect to be on camera and facing aggressive questions from the moment they open their front door to the moment they return home at night. Everything they say and do is instantly broadcast and dissected on 24-hour news channels, blogs, and Twitter. It was not always this way. Live from Downing Street takes us on an absorbing journey through the hard-fought battles for the right to tell the public about the decisions taken on their behalf. Parliament once imprisoned those who dared to report what MPs had said. Broadcasters used to be banned by law from debating anything newsworthy and even from covering elections. Since that censorship ended, the two sides have clashed repeatedly. We follow the fluctuations of the power struggle from Walpole to modern times, dwelling in fascinating detail on those who fought back - Churchill, Wilson, Thatcher, and Blair. At the same time we learn of the emergence of the equally charismatic key players from radio and television: the Dimblebys, Day, Frost, Walden, Paxman, and Humphrys. Nick Robinson provides a colourful and personal examination of what life is like as the BBC’s Political Editor – a role described in a report for the White House as ´´the most important job in British political journalism´´. Peppered with informative but witty anecdotes, his account reveals his own considered view of the controversial issue of impartial reporting. Live from Downing Street is a gripping story written by someone uniquely placed to add his own perceptive insights and observations. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Shepherd.

A bold, arresting new work of fiction from the acclaimed author of Everything Matters! In this tour de force of imagination, Ron Currie asks why literal veracity means more to us than deeper truths, creating yet again a genre-bending novel that will at once dazzle, move, and provoke. The protagonist of Ron Currie, Jr.’s new novel has a problem­ - or rather, several of them. He’s a writer whose latest book was destroyed in a fire. He’s mourning the death of his father, and has been in love with the same woman since grade school, a woman whose beauty and allure is matched only by her talent for eluding him. Worst of all, he’s not even his own man, but rather an amalgam of fact and fiction from Ron Currie’s own life. When Currie the character exiles himself to a small Caribbean island to write a new book about the woman he loves, he eventually decides to fake his death, which turns out to be the best career move he’s ever made. But fame and fortune come with a price, and Currie learns that in a time of 24-hour news cycles, reality TV, and celebrity Twitter feeds, the one thing the world will not forgive is having been told a deeply satisfying lie. What kind of distinction could, or should, be drawn between Currie the author and Currie the character? Or between the book you hold in your hands and the novel embedded in it? Whatever the answers, Currie, an inventive writer always eager to test the boundaries of storytelling in provocative ways, has essential things to impart along the way about heartbreak, reality, grief, deceit, human frailty, and blinding love. 1.
