Burning Social Issues

The world would be a better place to inhabit if humanity at large could eliminate the thorny social animosities and conflicts. If the civilized human society needs to refrain from socio-cultural hostilities in future, it must uphold righteousness, peace and compassion. Violence targeting the disadvantaged people happens even at this moment somewhere in the world. The question, however, is why do some humans behave so violently and unethically? Do we share a gene coded with brutality with chimpanzees but have modern armaments and organizational skills than our non-human cousins do? But what, then, of the majority of humans who are peaceful and avoid such social wickedness? Of course, there is a brighter side to human nature- many people risk their lives for others, and some die while helping. Why? Simple lesson learnt in childhood that it's the right thing to do to a fellow human. The capacity to make the right choices makes us the most privileged species on our Earth. The author, who has three decades of scientific expertise, has compiled his essays in this book highlighting some of the burning social issues facing the society with case studies from Asia.

The Texas border is under attack. Police are overwhelmed and refugees flee in terror from eight small towns. Sergeant Jerry Nunez and his soldiers are ordered to retake one town from an unknown enemy. During the desperate fight, Nunez discovers how inhuman people can truly be, struggles to carry on despite tragic losses, and is forced to peer into the depths of his own brutality. And he learns a lesson as painful as it is true: for a warrior, loss of freedom and honor is a worse fate than death. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Dawson.

Tales from a Strange Southern Lady , Hörbuch, D...

Jan Fink's stories are drawn from her life experiences and the people she has met along the way. She allows her characters to channel their stories in their own voices. Stories that involve what it is to be human and capable of greed, hatred, brutality, and even murder. Her characters take us through the struggles of the human capacity for good and evil, the capacity to love, human frailty, the burden of guilt and sin, and realizing the dark side of their own nature. From Anna fleeing her eccentric Southern family, Olivia's childhood memoir, Damon Pierce's knowledge, John Love's quest for Clara Jean, Little Bill's Greenland to Pauley and Dylan's driving lesson, a mother's story of abuse, the long-winded George McNutt, Buzz the collector, and Archie's question, they are each in their own way searching for meaning and freedom. Tales from a Strange Southern Lady is fashioned with sentences that artfully paint perfect pictures and a sharp, wicked sense of humor. At the same time they carry that sort of Southern innocence and naiveté that makes the characters so likable and the bad ones so hateable. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Natalee Pfeifer.

ONE OF THE MOST ACCLAIMED BOOKS OF THE YEAR 'A big, sprawling, ultimately stunning crime tableau.' – Janet Maslin, New York Times 'You can't ask for more emotionally moving entertainment.' – Stephen King 'One of the best thriller writers on the planet.' – Esquire The explosive, highly anticipated conclusion to the epic Cartel trilogy from the New York Times bestselling author of The Force What do you do when there are no borders? When the lines you thought existed simply vanish?  How do you plant your feet to make a stand when you no longer know what side you’re on? The war has come home. For over forty years, Art Keller has been on the front lines of America’s longest conflict: The War on Drugs. His obsession to defeat the world’s most powerful, wealthy, and lethal kingpin―the godfather of the Sinaloa Cartel, Adán Barrera―has left him bloody and scarred, cost him the people he loves, even taken a piece of his soul. Now Keller is elevated to the highest ranks of the DEA, only to find that in destroying one monster he has created thirty more that are wreaking even more chaos and suffering in his beloved Mexico. But not just there. Barrera’s final legacy is the heroin epidemic scourging America. Throwing himself into the gap to stem the deadly flow, Keller finds himself surrounded by enemies―men who want to kill him, politicians who want to destroy him, and worse, the unimaginable―an incoming administration that’s in bed with the very drug traffickers that Keller is trying to bring down. Art Keller is at war with not only the cartels, but with his own government. And the long fight has taught him more than he ever imagined. Now, he learns the final lesson―there are no borders. In a story that moves from deserts of Mexico to Wall Street, from the slums of Guatemala to the marbled corridors of Washington, D.C., Winslow follows a new generation of narcos, the cops who fight them, street traffickers, addicts, politicians, money-launderers, real-estate moguls, and mere children fleeing the violence for the chance of a life in a new country. A shattering tale of vengeance, violence, corruption and justice, this last novel in Don Winslow’s magnificent, award-winning, internationally bestselling trilogy is packed with unforgettable, drawn-from-the-headlines scenes. Shocking in its brutality, raw in its humanity, The Border is an unflinching portrait of modern America, a story of—and for—our time.

Rhinoceros, The Chairs, The Lesson
19,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

These three great plays by one of the founding fathers of the theatre of the absurd, are alive and kicking with tragedy and humour, bleakness and farce. In Rhinoceros we are shown the innate brutality of people as everyone, except for Berenger, turn into clumsy, unthinking rhinoceroses. The Chairs depicts the futile struggle of two old people to convey the meaning of life to the rest of humanity, while The Lesson is a chilling, but anarchically funny drama of verbal domination. In these three 'antiplays' dream, nonsense and fantasy combine to create an unsettling, bizarre view of society.
