The Princessa: Machiavelli for Women
15,71 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A legacy of leadership for women only. For centuries men have used the lessons of Machiavelli's The Prince to gain and hold power. Today's women, struggling to succeed in a man's world, must learn a crucial lesson of their own: men and women are not equal--and that is a woman's greatest strength. From the wars of intimacy to battles of public life, whether confronting bosses, competitors, or lovers, the greatest power belongs to the woman who dares to use the subtle weapons that are hers alone. This provocative work urges women to claim what they want and deserve, offering a bold new battle plan that celebrates a woman's unique gifts: passion and intuition, sensitivity and cunning. It draws from history's legendary female divas and poets, saints and sinners, artists and activists--who, armed with a desire for justice and a spirit of outrageousness, achieved their impossible dreams. Their lasting legacy is codified in The Princessa: act like a woman, fight like a woman, and life will be yours to command.

Citizens and Kings: Studies in World Art, Book ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Citizens and Kings, the new blockbuster show at the Royal Academy in London, contains an almost overwhelming number of celebrated paintings and sculptures, even if one or two of them, such as Jacques-Louis David’s Marat Assassiné, turn out to be studio versions rather than the real thing.The show aims to trace the shift in attitudes towards the human personality that was set in motion by the American and French Revolutions and the wars associated with these great political and social upheavals. It is, quite literally, a history lesson conducted with the help of famous work of art, and to appreciate it fully, you have to carry the historical outline in your head - not merely the story of how governments rose and fell, but the pattern of cultural transformation as well. 1.

Miss Audrey Hepburn: A One-Woman Play in Two Ac...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Audrey Hepburn was not your usual movie star. She was the highest paid actress of her day, yet she never took a formal acting lesson. A child of war, and the daughter of a Fascist sympathizer, she spent her last years helping children of other wars. An Academy Award-winner for her first major film role (Roman Holiday), Hepburn continued her storybook career with such classic movies as Sabrina, Funny Face, The Nun's Story, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Charade, My Fair Lady and Wait until Dark. Her two marriages ended in divorce. Michael B. Druxman’s one-woman play, Miss Audrey Hepburn, is set in 1990. It finds the semi-retired actress in her home in Switzerland, filming a television commercial for UNICEF. It's not going well, and during a break, she ponders her life and the "ghosts" that still haunt her. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emma Riches, Simon Gutteridge.

A World Torn Asunder: The Life and Triumph of C...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Constantin C. Giurescu was Romania's leading historian and author of the seminal work The History of the Romanian People. His granddaughter's fascinating story of this remarkable man and his family follows their struggles in war-torn Romania from 1900 to the fall of the Soviet Union. An enlightened society is dismantled with the 1946 Communist takeover of Romania, and Constantin is confined to the notorious Sighet penitentiary. Drawing on her grandfather's prison diary (which was put in a glass jar, buried in a yard, then smuggled out of the country by Dr. Paul E. Michelson who provides the foreward for this book), private letters and her own research, Dr. Giurescu writes of the legacy from the turn of the century to the fall of Communism. We see the rise of modern Romania, the misery of World War I, the blossoming of its culture between the wars, and then the sellout of Eastern Europe to Russia after World War II. In this sweeping account, we see not only its effects socially and culturally, but the triumph in its wake: a man and his people who reclaim better lives for themselves, and in the process, teach us a lesson in endurance, patience, and will not only to survive, but to thrive. 1.

The Mists of Adriana - Book II , Hörbuch, Digit...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Adriana Barrows returns to Maine following a disastrous intelligence-gathering mission in Pakistan. Unlike the extremely competent and capable woman the listener met in the first book, in Book II the listener meets the entirely "human" Adriana, one who will need to deal with her own weaknesses and frailties. Once again, the narrator tells her story, believing that from his past experiences, he perhaps alone can help her to heal. But he once more gets to look backward into the depths of his own dark memories of wars fought and lost years before. Eventually, with time and patience he is able to pull Adriana away from the dark abyss of her depressions, but it is mostly a new challenge that can be met by them both that begins to yield a true recovery. But once again there will be a new challenge that will require Adriana's skills and training to be utilized and as in the first book, she must leave her narrator/lover behind. The difference this time is there is no doubt that she will return to him and their life together. But once she is gone, it also seems to him that the old lesson he thought might be behind them, will be taught once again: that when things seem too good to be true, they usually are. 1.
