Legenden om Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel har været stedfast i verdenshistorien i mere end 60 år. Han var uden tvivl Hitlers mest berømte general og i historien står han som en enestående mand – stærkt motiveret, utroligt intelligent og overlegent dygtig, men ikke fejlfri. Rommel, der kunne være påtrængende, uforudsigelig og arrogant, led også af depression. Han blev født i 1891 i det sydlige Tyskland og sluttede sig til militæret som 18-årig. Med sin karakteristiske listighed og dristighed, gennemførte han alt han besluttede sig for, selv når oddsene var imod ham. Det gik først galt, da han havnede i en verden af politik som han ikke brød sig om og ikke forstod... Dette er historien om nazitysklands mest berømte general.HISTORIE er en serie om historiske begivenheder og personer, der har fascineret og interesseret os i generationer. I korte artikler og reportager får vi indblik i historiens med omtalte foreteelser og øjeblikke.Oprindeligt udgivet af Orage.
An aging judge about to step down. Aggressive prosecutors friendly with the judge. A disgraced president. A nation that had already made up its mind. The Watergate trials were a legal mess-and now, with the discovery of new documents that reveal shocking misconduct by prosecutors and judges alike, former Nixon staffer Geoff Shepard has a convincing case that the wrongdoing of these history-making trials was actually a bigger scandal than the Watergate scandal itself.
"Han havde sine fejder med de intellektuelle og med bønderne, og han lagde sig ud med udenlandske statsmænd på stribe. For sådan var han. Han elskede striden og kampen, både for sagens skyld og af og til for kampens skyld. Han hentede sine sejre – og sine nederlag, altid i ivrig kamp. Denne bog er et forsøg på – med bidrag fra ind- og udland – at tegne nogle streger til et portræt af Olof Palme. Det endelige Palme-billede vil historien tegne."Preben Dich har samlet en lang række beretninger om den legendariske svenske statsminister Olof Palme. Bogen er ikke et forsøg på at opklare Olof Palmes mord eller at ophøje ham til noget, han ikke var. I stedet tegner de forskellige beretninger et nuanceret billede af en politiker og et menneske, der satte et tydeligt aftryk både på sit eget land og i hele verden.Preben Dich er en dansk journalist og forfatter. Han har blandt andet udgivet biografier om historiske personer samt en samling journalistiske beretninger om den svenske statsminister Olof Palme og hans betydning for verden og hans samtid.
SJÆLDENT HAR SOCIALDEMOKRATER næret så store håb til deres formand, som de gør til Mette Frederiksen. Hun er partiformand, statsminister, arbejderklasse i fjerde generation, personificeringen af den socialdemokratiske sjæl og taler lige ind i partifællernes hjerter. Men hvem er kvinden, der er Danmarks yngste statsminister - og har hun det, der skal til? METTE F. - STATSMINISTER er historien om en socialdemokratisk bevægelse i forandring og indre konflikt.

Socialism 101 is a comprehensive and accessible guide to the historical and modern applications of socialism.In today's political climate, more and more presidential candidates are espousing socialistor democratic socialistpolicies. Once associated with oppression, socialism is now a current topic of conversation with everyday Americans, including policies like taxing the rich and healthcare for all. But what exactly is socialism and why does it spark such an intense debate? Socialism 101 provides an easy-to-understand, unbiased overview to the nearly 300-year-old origins of this mode of government, its complex history, basic constructs, modern-day interpretations, key figures in its development, and up-to-date concepts and policies in today's world. As capitalism has become less appealing and socialism experiences a surge in popularity, the need for clarification of what it means has never been more necessary than now.
Teen Vogue award-winning columnist Lauren Duca shares a smart and funny guide for challenging the status quo in a much-needed reminder that young people are the ones who will change the world.A columnist at Teen Vogue, Lauren Duca has become a fresh and authoritative voice on the experience of millennials in today's society. In these pages she explores the post-Trump political awakening and lays the groundwork for a re-democratizing moment as it might be built out of the untapped potential of young people. Duca investigates and explains the issues at the root of our ailing political system and reimagines what an equitable democracy would look like. It begins with young people getting involved. People like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever to be elected to Congress; David and Lauren Hogg, two survivors of the Parkland, Florida shooting who went on to become advocates for gun control; Amanda Litman, who founded the nonprofit organization Run For Something, to assist progressive young people in down ballot elections; and many more. Called ';the millennial feminist warrior queen of social media' by Ariel Levy and ';a national newsmaker' by The New York Times, Dan Rather agrees ';we need fresh, intelligent, and creative voiceslike Lauren'snow as muchperhaps morethan ever before.' Here, Duca combines extensive research and first-person reporting to track her generation's shift from political alienation to political participation. Throughout, she also draws on her own story as a young woman catapulted to the front lines of the political conversation (all while figuring out how to deal with her Trump-supporting parents).
#1 national bestselling author David Limbaugh warns Americans about the 2020 electionsand why the Democratic Party must not win. The Democratic Party is now a party of leftist extremismradical to the point of insanity: socialist, anti-Christian, in favor of de facto infanticide, and opposed to the rule of law (when it does not suit their purposes, including on the border). Bestsellling author David Limbaugh warns that the 2020 elections could be the deciding moment when America turns permanently socialist. Limbaugh offers a stirring call for all Americans who still love their country to rally behind the principle of freedom under law that this country was founded upon, and makes the case for electing Republicans to the White House and Congress in 2020.
NATIONAL BESTSELLER ';The breakout star of the new activists.' The Economist ';If Democrats are able to retake the House in 2018, it will be a victory built from Greenberg and Levin's blueprint.' Politico ';One of the biggest successes so far this year...Indivisible has played a leading role in turning out voters at congressional town halls to voice their opposition.' The New York Times ';The centerpiece of a robust new grassroots machinery.' Rolling Stone This is a story of democracy under threat. It's the story of a movement rising up to respond. And it's a story of what comes next.Shortly after Trump's election, two outraged former congressional staffers wrote and posted a tactical guide to resisting the Trump agenda. This Google Doc entitled ';Indivisible' was meant to be read by friends and family. No one could have predicted what happened next. It went viral, sparking the creation of thousands of local Indivisible groups in red, blue, and purple states, mobilizing millions of people and evolving into a defining movement of the Trump Era. From crowding town halls to killing TrumpCare to rallying around candidates to build the Blue Wave, Indivisibles powered the fight against Trumpand pushed the limits of what was politically possible. In We Are Indivisible: A Blueprint for Democracy After Trump, the (still-married!) co-executive directors of Indivisible tell the story of the movement. They offer a behind-the-scenes look at how change comes to Washington, whether Washington wants it or not. And they explain how we'll win the coming fight for the future of American democracy. We Are Indivisible isn't a book of platitudes about hope; it's a steely-eyed guide to people powerhow to find it, how to build it, and how to use it to usher in the post-Trump era. *All proceeds to the author go to Indivisible's Save Democracy Fund
A startling look at how concentrated financial power and consumerism transformed American politics, resulting in the emergence of populism and authoritarianism, the fall of the Democratic Partywhile also providing the steps needed to create a new democracy.Americans once had a coherent and clear understanding of political tyranny, one crafted by Thomas Jefferson and updated for the industrial age by Louis Brandeis. A concentration of power, whether in the hands of a military dictator or a JP Morgan, was understood as autocratic and dangerous to individual liberty and democracy. This idea stretched back to the country's founding. In the 1930s, people observed that the Great Depression was caused by financial concentration in the hands of a few whose misuse of their power induced a financial collapse. They drew on this tradition to craft the New Deal. In Goliath, Matt Stoller explains how authoritarianism and populism have returned to American politics for the first time in eighty years, as the outcome of the 2016 election shook our faith in democratic institutions. It has brought to the fore dangerous forces that many modern Americans never even knew existed. Today's bitter recriminations and panic represent more than just fear of the future, they reflect a basic confusion about what is happening and the historical backstory that brought us to this moment. The true effects of populism, a shrinking middle class, and concentrated financial wealth are only just beginning to manifest themselves under the current administrations. The lessons of Stoller's study will only grow more relevant as time passes. Building upon his viral article in The Atlantic, ';How the Democrats Killed Their Populist Soul,' Stoller illustrates in rich detail how we arrived at this tenuous moment, and the steps we must take to create a new democracy.
#1 international and New York Times bestselling author Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything, makes the case for a Green New Dealexplaining how bold climate action can be a blueprint for a just and thriving society.For more than twenty years, Naomi Klein has been the foremost chronicler of the economic war waged on both people and planetand an unapologetic champion of a sweeping environmental agenda with justice at its center. In lucid, elegant dispatches from the frontlines of contemporary natural disaster, she pens surging, indispensable essays for a wide public: prescient advisories and dire warnings of what future awaits us if we refuse to act, as well as hopeful glimpses of a far better future. On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal gathers for the first time more than a decade of her impassioned writing, and pairs it with new material on the staggeringly high stakes of our immediate political and economic choices. These long-form essays show Klein at her most prophetic and philosophical, investigating the climate crisis not only as a profound political challenge but as a spiritual and imaginative one, as well. Delving into topics ranging from the clash between ecological time and our culture of ';perpetual now,' to the soaring history of humans changing and evolving rapidly in the face of grave threats, to rising white supremacy and fortressed borders as a form of ';climate barbarism,' this is a rousing call to action for a planet on the brink. With reports spanning from the ghostly Great Barrier Reef, to the annual smoke-choked skies of the Pacific Northwest, to post-hurricane Puerto Rico, to a Vatican attempting an unprecedented ';ecological conversion,' Klein makes the case that we will rise to the existential challenge of climate change only if we are willing to transform the systems that produced this crisis. An expansive, far-ranging exploration that sees the battle for a greener world as indistinguishable from the fight for our lives, On Fire captures the burning urgency of the climate crisis, as well as the fiery energy of a rising political movement demanding a catalytic Green New Deal.
Firsthand testimonies from Guantnamo Bay, inspiring future generations to never repeat the human rights violations of the detention center.Law scholar and Witness to Guantnamo founder Peter Jan Honigsberg uncovers a haunting portrait of life at the military prison and its toll, not only on the detainees and their loved ones but also on its military and civilian personnel and the journalists who reported on it.Honigsberg conducted 158 interviews across 20 countries so that the people who lived and worked there could tell their heartbreaking and inspirational stories. In each one, we face the reality that the healing process cannot begin until we start the conversation about what was done in the name of protecting our country. These are a few of them. Many alleged operatives in Guantnamo were purchased by the United States for ransom from Afghan and Pakistani soldiers. Brandon Neely, a prison guard who processed the first group of suspected operatives to arrive in Cuba, flew to London to embrace the detainees he guarded after leaving the military. Navy whistleblower Matt Diaz covertly released the names of 500 detainees by sending them in a greeting card to a lawyer in New York. Journalist Carol Rosenberg committed the past 17 years of her career to documenting life at Guantnamo. And Damien Corsetti, an interrogator who came to be known as the ';King of Torture,' received ribbons and awards for the same cruel actions for which he was later prosecuted.In startling, aching prose, A Place Outside the Law shines a light on these unheard voices, and through them, encourages the global community to embrace humanity as our greatest tool to make the world a safer place.
What is the alt-right? What do they believe, and how did they take center stage in the American social and political consciousness?From a loose movement that lurked in the shadows in the early 2000s, the alt-right has achieved a level of visibility that has allowed it to expand significantly throughout America's cultural, political, and digital landscapes. Racist, sexist, and homophobic beliefs that were previously unspeakable have become commonplace, normalized, and acceptedendangering American democracy and society as a whole. Yet in order to dismantle the destructive movement that has invaded our public consciousness, we must first understand the core beliefs that drive the alt-right.To help guide us through the contemporary moment, historian Alexandra Minna Stern excavates the alt-right memes and tropes that have erupted online and explores the alt-right's central texts, narratives, constructs, and insider language. She digs to the root of the alt-right's motivations: their deep-seated fear of an oncoming ';white genocide' that can only be remedied through swift and aggressive action to reclaim white power. As the group makes concerted efforts to cast off the vestiges of neo-Nazism and normalize their appearance and their beliefs, the alt-right and their ideas can be hard to recognize. Through careful analysis, Stern brings awareness to the underlying concepts that guide the alt-right and animate its overlapping forms of racism, xenophobia, transphobia, and anti-egalitarianism. She explains the key ideas of ';red-pilling,' strategic trolling, gender essentialism, and the alt-right's ultimate fantasy: a future where minorities have been removed and ';cleansed' from the body politic and a white ethnostate is established in the United States. By unearthing the hidden mechanisms that power white nationalism, Stern reveals just how pervasive this movement truly is.
A practical, inspirational, revolutionary guide to social innovation Many of us have a deep desire to make the world around us a better place. But often our good intentions are undermined by the fear that we are so insignificant in the big scheme of things that nothing we can do will actually help feed the world's hungry, fix the damage of a Hurricane Katrina or even get a healthy lunch program up and running in the local school. We tend to think that great social change is the province of heroes an intimidating view of reality that keeps ordinary people on the couch. But extraordinary leaders such as Gandhi and even unlikely social activists such as Bob Geldof most often see themselves as harnessing the forces around them, rather than singlehandedly setting those forces in motion. The trick in any great social project from the global fight against AIDS to working to eradicate poverty in a single Canadian city is to stop looking at the discrete elements and start trying to understand the complex relationships between them. By studying fascinating real-life examples of social change through this systems-and-relationships lens, the authors of Getting to Maybe tease out the rules of engagement between volunteers, leaders, organizations and circumstance between individuals and what Shakespeare called ';the tide in the affairs of men.' Getting to Maybe applies the insights of complexity theory and harvests the experiences of a wide range of people and organizations including the ministers behind the Boston Miracle (and its aftermath); the Grameen Bank, in which one man's dream of micro-credit sparked a financial revolution for the world's poor; the efforts of a Canadian clothing designer to help transform the lives of Indigenous women and children; and many more to lay out a brand new way of thinking about making change in communities, in business, and in the world.
Die Wiedervereinigung Deutschlands in den Erinnerungen eines Diplomaten!Das Jahr 1989 war ein wichtiges für Deutschland, denn es war das Jahr des Mauerfalls. Doch dieser Triumph stellte das Land vor eine neue Herausforderung: die DDR musste nun in die Bundesrepublik eingeordnet werden. Jedoch glückten diese Veränderungen im „deutschen Jahr", welches eigentlich den Zeitraum 1989 und 1990 umfasst, besser als erwartet. Duisberg, der die Politik in dieser Zeit durch seine Position im Bundeskanzleramt aus nächster Nähe miterlebt hat, beschreibt die Ereignisse der spannungsreichen Verhandlungen und den resultierenden Einigungsvertrag mit seinen Einblicken.Autor Claus J. Duisberg wurde im Jahr 1934 in Frankfurt am Main geboren. Nach seinem Abitur studierte er von 1955 bis 1958 Rechtwissenschaften erst in Bonn, dann in Genf, und vollendete schließlich sein zweites juristisches Staatsexamen 1963. Ein Jahr später begann er seine Tätigkeiten im Auswärtigen Amt. Von 1986 bis 1990 war er zudem Leiter des Arbeitsstabs Deutschlandpolitik im Bundeskanzleramt und später von 1995 bis 1999 Botschafter in Brasilien. Bis 1999 war Duisberg Teil des Auswärtigen Amts, seit diesem Jahr ist er pensioniert.
