The Mind of a Terrorist: David Headley, the Mum...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

With the pacing of a thriller, a veteran journalist´s account of the terrorist behind the Mumbai attacks and a planned attack in Europe. David Headley, the American Pakistani also known as Daood Gilani, lived a double life. One day he would stroll through Central Park in his tailored Armani suit as a true New Yorker, and the next he would browse in the bazaar in Lahore wearing traditional Pakistani clothes. One day he would drink champagne at the most extravagant ♣ on another he would prostrate himself in prayer in remote Pakistan and pledge fidelity to Allah. Born in 1960, the son of an American mother and a Pakistani father, with one blue eye and one brown, Headley grew up between East and West. He was attracted to both worlds, even working as an informant for the US government, until one day he found he had to choose between the place of his birth and a radical form of Islam preaching global jihad. This is the disturbing story of the mastermind behind the 2008 attacks in Mumbai that killed 166 people - who two months later flew to Copenhagen to plan another act of terror with the help of al-Qaeda sleeper cells in Europe. Veteran journalist Kaare Sørensen has reconstructed his movements and planning in a tense feat of reportage. His account, based on extensive reporting, eyewitness interviews, and documentation including wiretaps, court transcripts, and emails by Headley accessed from a chat room cache of 9,000 messages, offers unprecedented insight into the mind of the terrorist. The author has provided updates and a new preface for the English-language edition. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Runnette.

Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

National Book Award, Nonfiction, 2012 From Pulitzer Prize-winner Katherine Boo, a landmark work of narrative nonfiction that tells the dramatic and sometimes heartbreaking story of families striving toward a better life in one of the 21st century’s great, unequal cities. In this brilliantly written, fast-paced book, based on three years of uncompromising reporting, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human. Annawadi is a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport, and as India starts to prosper, Annawadians are electric with hope. Abdul, a reflective and enterprising Muslim teenager, sees ´´a fortune beyond counting” in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Asha, a woman of formidable wit and deep scars from a childhood in rural poverty, has identified an alternate route to the middle class: political corruption. With a little luck, her sensitive, beautiful daughter—Annawadi’s ´´most-everything girl”—will soon become its first female college graduate. And even the poorest Annawadians, like Kalu, a fifteen-year-old scrap-metal thief, believe themselves inching closer to the good lives and good times they call ´´the full enjoy.” But then Abdul the garbage sorter is falsely accused in a shocking tragedy; terror and a global recession rock the city; and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power and economic envy turn brutal. As the tenderest individual hopes intersect with the greatest global truths, the true contours of a competitive age are revealed. And so, too, are the imaginations and courage of the people of Annawadi. With intelligence, humor, and deep insight into what connects human beings to one another in an era of tumultuous change, Behind the Beautiful Forevers carries the reader headlong into one of the 21st century’s hidden worlds, and into the lives of people impossible to forget. 1.

In this hour, no book has won more raves this year than Katherine Boo’s nonfiction portrait of a Mumbai slum. A stunning work of journalism, Behind the Beautiful Forevers takes us into the heart of a squatters´ settlement where the main economy is trash picking.Next, photojournalist Brendan Bannon has documented refugee crises, epidemics, drought and poverty throughout Africa. He´s committed to bringing Western audiences stories that reflect Africa as more than just a place of deep tragedy. The Africa he sees is also full of vitality and inventiveness. Then, Pir Zubair Shah risked his life reporting for the New York Times from Waziristan, in the heart of the Taliban-controlled Pashtun area in Pakistan. In the course of his reporting, he was detained by both the Taliban and Pakistani government forces. His work won a Pulitzer Prize, but he was forced to leave the country for his personal safety. After that, Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich -- hosts of the hit public radio show Radiolab. They make witty, sparkling radio about huge ideas. They also challenge a lot of assumptions about what it means to practice journalism. They hang out in their studio with Steve and chat about radio, science and a lot more...Following that, Tom Wolfe is back! And in his trademark white suit, no less.

Through the eyes of an inventor of new markets, Good Derivatives: A Story of Financial and Environmental Innovation tells the story of how financial innovation – a concept that is misunderstood and under attack - has been a positive force in the last four decades. If properly designed and regulated, these ´´good derivatives” can open vast possibilities to address a variety of global problems. Filled with provocative ideas, fascinating stories, and valuable lessons, this book will provide both an insightful interpretation of the last 40 years in capital and environmental markets and a vision of world finance for the next 40 years. As a young economist at the Chicago Board of Trade, Richard Sandor helped create interest-rate futures, a development that revolutionized worldwide finance. Later, he pioneered the use of emissions trading to reduce acid rain, one of the most successful environmental programs ever. He will provide unique insights into the process of creating these new financial products. Covering successes and failures, he describes the tireless process of inventing, educating and creating support for these new inventions in places like Chicago, New York, London, and Paris, and how it is unfolding today in Mumbai, Shanghai and Beijing.The book will tell the story of the creation of the Chicago Climate Exchange and its affiliated exchanges (European Climate Exchange, Chicago Climate Futures Exchange, and Tianjin Climate Exchange, located in China). The lessons learned in these markets can play a critical role in effectively addressing global climate change and other pressing environmental issues. The author argues that market-based trading systems are a far more effective means of reducing pollutants than ´´command-and-control”. Environmental markets may ultimately help to find solutions to issues such as rainforest destruction, water problems, and biodiversity threats.Written in an engaging, narrative style, Good De 1.
