Socialism . . . Seriously (eBook, ePUB)
11,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

"Katch has done the impossible: he makes socialism sexy . . . eye-opening, inspiring, and funny . . . this book might turn you into a closet socialist" (Judah Friedlander, actor and comedian). Opinion polls show that many people in the United States prefer socialism to capitalism. But after being declared dead and buried for decades, socialism has come to mean little more than something vaguely less cruel and stupid than what we have now. That's not exactly going to inspire millions to storm the barricades. Danny Katch brings together the two great Marxist traditions of Karl and Groucho to provide an entertaining and insightful introduction to what the socialist tradition has to say about democracy, economics, and the potential of human beings to be something more than being bomb-dropping, planet-destroying racist fools. "The most hilarious book about socialism since Karl Marx and his brother Harpo wrote their joke book." -Hari Kondabolu, filmmaker and comedian "If The Communist Manifesto and America's Funniest Home Videos had a baby, it would be Danny Katch's new book. It's a hilarious and fun way to think about what's wrong with our world, how it could be different, and how we might get there. Keep an extra copy of Socialism . . . Seriously in your bag and hand it to the next person who asks you what socialism is all about; as long as that person is not your boss . . . seriously." -Brian Jones, actor, educator, and activist "A lighthearted, easy read that packs an intro course on socialism into a short volume. With jokes that made me laugh out loud, and a lot of heart. Socialism is for lovers. Indeed." -Sarah Jaffe, Belabored podcast host

What Really Happened: The Lincoln Assassination...
14,39 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Think You Know Everything about the Lincoln Assassination? Think Again. After 150 years, many unsolved mysteries and enduring urban legends still surround the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by the popular stage actor John Wilkes Booth. In a new look at the case, award-winning history author Robert J. Hutchinson (The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible) explores what we know, and don't know, about what really happened at Ford's Theatre on the night of April 14, 1865. In addition, he argues that the deep-seated political hatreds that roiled Washington, D.C., in the final weeks of the Civil War are particularly relevant to our own polarized age. Among the tantalizing questions Hutchinson explores are: * Did the Confederacy have a hand in the assassination plot? * Who were Booth's secret accomplices, and why did he change the plan from kidnapping to assassination? * Why was it so easy for Booth to walk into the president's box to shoot him? Where were the guards? * How did Booth evade the largest manhunt in U.S. history for nearly two weeks despite being unable to walk? * Who gave the order to shoot Booth in the Garrett barn-and what happened to his body? Drawing upon both primary sources and the best recent historical research, What Really Happened: The Lincoln Assassination separates established facts from mere conjectures-and is the one book to own if you want to know "what really happened." Also look for the second book in the series: What Really Happened: The Death of Hitler, coming August 2020.

Abandoned Malls of America (eBook, ePUB)
19,18 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What happens when the symbol of commerce crumbles? This collection of nearly two hundred stunning yet melancholic photos captures the decline of one of the biggest symbols of American consumerism-the shopping mall. Seph Lawless, whom Huffington Post refers to as the "master of the abandoned," details the dilapidated state of these buildings that were once thriving with people and merchandise, now left to rot and be overrun with plant and animal life. In Abandoned Malls of America, Lawless showcases haunting images of shopping malls from all across America, from his hometown of Cleveland, OH in the Midwest to Birmingham, AL in the South and all the way to Los Angeles, CA on the West Coast. Alongside these beautiful images are first-hand accounts from people who grew up going to these malls, reminiscing on the dually wistful and fond memories of their once-favorite local hangouts. These essays include anecdotes from actress Yvette Nicole Brown (Drake and Josh; Community; etc.), actor Justin Kucsulain (The Walking Dead), New Yorker investigative journalist Ronan Farrow, and more. In this follow-up to his previous book, Abandoned, "artivist" Seph Lawless continues his journey photo-documenting the America left behind in the throes of economic instability and overall decline. Abandoned Malls of America is a perfect read for those interested in photography, architecture, or just longing for a little bit of nostalgia.

Gretchen Williams had finally been offered her dream job. After years of writing - screenplays, various freelance jobs, and erotic spanking romance - one of her book series had been adapted for television. She had been over the moon at the invitation to join the crew on set and overlook day to day operations. Of course she never expected to wind up as the whipping girl. The main actress balked at the idea of a hand coming anywhere near her perfect round behind, and after some deliberations Gretchen offers up her derriere for showbiz. She never dreamed her bottom would be on display for everyone to see, but the bigger problem is the sudden attention from the male lead actor. Tristan Callahan knew exactly what he was signing up for when he accepted the contract for a one year term, tentative for a second season at best. The subject matter appealed to him for a variety of reasons, ones he kept to himself. Until Gretchen throws a temper tantrum like a true diva. He takes her in hand, right in her own trailer, proving that he's been doing very little acting so far. They embark into a secret D/s relationship. When photos of them together at a local BDSM dungeon surface and leak to the media, they find themselves with tough choices to make. Will their relationship overcome the scandal or is Gretchen doomed to say goodbye to Tristan in true Hollywood fashion? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Augustine Poe. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/065794/bk_acx0_065794_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
