The Making of Modern Britain , Hörbuch, Digital...

In The Making of Modern Britain, Andrew Marr paints a fascinating portrait of life in Britain during the first half of the 20th century as the country recovered from the grand wreckage of the British Empire. Between the death of Queen Victoria and the end of the Second World War, the nation was shaken by war and peace. The two wars were the worst we had ever known and the episodes of peace among the most turbulent and surprising. As the political forum moved from Edwardian smoking rooms to an increasingly democratic Westminster, the people of Britain experimented with extreme ideas as they struggled to answer the question 'how should we live?' Socialism? Fascism? Feminism? Meanwhile, fads such as eugenics, vegetarianism and nudism were gripping the nation, and the popularity of the music hall soared. It was also a time that witnessed the birth of the media as we know it today and the beginnings of the welfare state. Beyond trenches, flappers and Spitfires, this is a story of strange cults and economic madness, of revolutionaries and heroic inventors, sexual experiments and raucous stage heroines. From organic food to drugs, nightclubs and celebrities to package holidays, crooked bankers to sleazy politicians, the echoes of today's Britain ring from almost every chapter. 1. Language: English.

El Amante de Lady Chatterley [Lady Chatterley's...

La obra prohibida por revelar hipocresias. Cuando Lawrence publico en 1928 su ultima novela, desato la furia de quienes se sentian aludidos por ella y que se apresuraron a declarar la obra como inmoral y a prohibirla. La verdad es que Lawrence en esta novela simbolizo en Lord Chatterley a todo el imperio britanico, paralizado e impotente, mientras que su esposa, ante la incapacidad del marido encontraba en un hombre de la clase media una alternativa. Los simbolos eran demasiado obvios para que Lawrence fuera perdonado y solo la labor de la justicia, que declaro que se trataba de una obra de grandes meritos literarios, logro acabar con las prohibiciones. Pero ademas de su profundo ataque a la hipocresia, se trata de una novela de argumento entretenido y por eso ha sido considerada como una de las grandes obras de la literatura inglesa del siglo XX.This is a novel that when it was first published unleashed the fury of those who felt alluded by it, and they rushed to declare it an immoral work. The book was forbidden for that reason. This novel symbolizes the British empire, with an entertaining plot, and has been considered one of the greatest works of English literature in the 20th century. 1. Spanish.

A candid business narrative and memoir from the founder of Jimmy Choo. Tamara Mellon made a fortune building Jimmy Choo into a billion-dollar fashion brand. She became the prime minister's trade envoy and was honored by the Queen with the Order of the British Empire - yet it's her personal glamour that keeps her an object of global media fascination. Vogue photographed her wedding; Vanity Fair covered her divorce and the criminal trial that followed. Harper's Bazaar toured her London town house and her New York mansion, right down to the closets. And the Wall Street Journal hinted at the real red meat: the three private equity deals, the relentless battle between "the suits" and "the creatives", and Mellon's triumph against a brutally hostile takeover attempt. In this candid memoir she shares the whole larger-than-life story, with genuinely shocking insider detail that has never been presented anywhere. From her troubled childhood to her time as a young editor at Vogue to her partnership with cobbler Jimmy Choo to her very public relationships, Mellon offers a gripping account of the episodes that have made her who she is today. The result is a must listen for entrepreneurs, fashionistas, and anyone who loves a juicy true story about sex, drugs, money, power, high heels, and overcoming adversity. 1. Language: English.

In 1972, Richard Forthrast, the black sheep of an Iowa farming clan, fled to the mountains of British Columbia to avoid the draft. A skilled hunting guide, he eventually amassed a fortune by smuggling marijuana across the border between Canada and Idaho. As the years passed, Richard went straight and returned to the States after the U.S. government granted amnesty to draft dodgers. He parlayed his wealth into an empire and developed a remote resort in which he lives. He also created T’Rain, a multibillion-dollar, massively multiplayer online role-playing game with millions of fans around the world. But T’Rain’s success has also made it a target. Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero. Racing around the globe from the Pacific Northwest to China to the wilds of northern Idaho and points in between, Reamde is a swift-paced thriller that traverses worlds virtual and real. Filled with unexpected twists and turns in which unforgettable villains and unlikely heroes face off in a battle for survival, it is a brilliant refraction of the 21st century, from the global war on terror to social media, computer hackers to mobsters, entrepreneurs to religious fundamentalists. Above all, Reamde is an enthralling human story - an entertaining and epic pause-resister from the extraordinary Neal Stephenson. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Malcolm Hillgartner.

Les Deplorables: How the Tea Party Put Trump in...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Les Deplorables focuses upon Donald Trump's third revolutionary effort to dismantle Franklin Roosevelt's new deal programs of big government that have dominated America since the depression of the 1930s. The first effort was Ronald Reagan's Moral Majority counterrevolution from 1980-89. The second attempt was led by Newt Gingrich's 1994 Contract with America and Republican control of Congress in the 1990s. This book explains the third American revolution in the aftermath of the Tea Party's victory in the 2016 election. The leader of the revolution, Donald J. Trump, can aptly be described as the Tea Party President of the United States. Despite winning the presidency, however, the Tea Party is engaged in a battle with establishment Republican (RINOs) for control of Congress and the media. The outcome of this contest will determine the success of the Trump revolution. If Trump's presidency is successful in carrying out his Tea Party agenda, Franklin Roosevelt's big government regime will end. Accompanying this revolutionary change will be a realignment of the party system that will likely overthrow the Democrats and make the Republicans the dominant political party under Tea Party leadership. Trump's Tea Party coalition, therefore, threatens the political establishment of both major parties, Wall Street, social elites, and the federal bureaucracy. This fits the classic definition of a revolution in which citizens overthrow the ruling elite. It is comparable to the American Revolutionary War of the 18th Century in which the founders of the new American Republic defeated the most powerful ruling elite in the world - the British Empire. 1.
