After serving his Brooklyn district for years, Congressman Sullivan discovers that his once comfortable Irish-American majority has given way to a diverse district of blacks and Hispanics. Challenged by a more liberal opponent, he tries everything possible to maintain his seat only to painfully learn that he and his views are outdated and irrelevant to today's world. But he doesn't bow out of the race gracefully, and the fierce ensuing campaign brings new insights to the meaning of democracy and the terrors of a swiftly changing world. If, as it is said, all politics are local, this compelling story transcends politics and puts a human face on how the American democratic system really operates. Unforgettable characters and a powerful plot offer a remarkable and tense story of how tragic endings affect new beginnings. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Will Tulin.

In Istanbul - the golden city on the Bosphorus - ancient myths and modern evils are at work.... On a buzzing street in the fashionable district of Beyoglu, a young man drops dead. Ümit Kavas' death was natural, but the autopsy betrays a shocking truth: his last meal was human flesh. Under desperate pressure from their superiors, Inspector Cetin Ikmen and his colleague, Mehmet Süleyman, begin their most obscure investigation yet. How did Ümit Kavas, apparently a good, liberal man, come to partake in the greatest taboo of all? Did he act alone? And who was his victim? Soon they find themselves embroiled in a dark web of underground worlds: Turkey's old secular elite, a community of squatters, and a new gastronomy scene breaking every boundary. But where does the truth lie? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Barrett. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/head/000451/bk_head_000451_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Harvey Milk: His Lives and Death , Hörbuch, Dig...

Harvey Milk - eloquent, charismatic, and a smart aleck - was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977, but he had not even served a full year in office when he was shot by a homophobic fellow supervisor. Milk's assassination at the age of 48 made him the most famous gay man in modern history; 20 years later, Time magazine included him on its list of the hundred most influential individuals of the 20th century. Before finding his calling as a liberal politician, however, Harvey variously tried being a schoolteacher, a securities analyst on Wall Street, a supporter of Barry Goldwater, a Broadway theater assistant, a bead-wearing hippie, the operator of a camera store, and organizer of the business community in San Francisco's Castro District. He rejected Judaism as a religion, but he was deeply influenced by the cultural values of his Jewish upbringing and his understanding of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust. His early influences and his many personal and professional experiences finally came together when he decided to run for elective office as the forceful champion of gays, racial minorities, women, working people, the disabled, and senior citizens. In his last five years, he focused all of his tremendous energy on becoming a successful public figure. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joel Froomkin.

Brash, brilliant, handsome Nicholas Deketomis has built a highly successful career as a lawyer, protecting the rights of the innocent while winning multibillion-dollar lawsuits from the powers that be. "Deke" may have come from the wrong side of the tracks, but he's built a wonderful life for his close-knit family. His wife and two children live in a beautiful house in a seaside community along the Florida Panhandle. But their comfortable life is endangered. In the midst of a highly contentious lawsuit against a powerful pharmaceutical company, as well as publicly advocating for a liberal Florida State Senate candidate, this time Deke may have riled the wrong powerbrokers. Scheming against him are a local Bible-thumping preacher, an ambitious district attorney, and two malicious brothers running one of the country's biggest oil corporations. A vile conspiracy is hatched to bring down Deketomis; setting him up and attempting to convict him on a bogus murder charge would solve many of their problems. Deke is in the trial of his life, which quickly becomes a media circus. But this good man will not go down without a bruising fight - especially when he finds his family threatened. And just as it seems that his enemies may have him cornered, he finds help from the unlikeliest source. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffrey Kafer.

GO VISTA: City Guide Frankfurt am Main - Englis...
5,99 € *

For many years it required a lot of courage to reveal oneself elsewhere as a native of Frankfurt. The metropolis was considered one of Germany's more unattractive addresses, boring and impersonal. At that time, its quality of life showed itself only, if at all, to the city's subculture. The famous shopping mile Zeil was a bare row of department stores having the charm of containers and Frankfurt's nightlife consisted of the dreary red-light district around the central station. If the city drew any attention it was because of demonstrations and riots.All long gone. Designers have displaced demonstrators, street festivals sit-ins: The city, once infamous for being sick and smelly (it has been called Krankfurt and Gestankfurt, literally meaning ill-furt and stink-furt), has been refurbished and refurnished in postmodern design. With the highest cultural budget of all German cities the municipality bought during the wealthy 80s and 90s everything that promised urban flair and city chic: art, culture and big names. By now, the banking metropolis is, apart from some peripheral regions and neighbourhoods, top stylish and luxuriously modernised. The wallflower, it would seem, has become a bird of paradise and the wind beneath its wings is an invigorating Frankfurt lifestyle. The heart of the city, the historical Römer, with its historicised reproductions of half-timbered houses has long been the natives' favourite plaza and the tourists' most popular photo motive. All the prolific cultural attractions in Frankfurt - the Museumsufer across the river, the Alte Oper with the imposing Lucae Fountain, the postmodern Kunsthalle Schirn and the Museum of Modern Art by the Viennese Star architect Hans Hollein - have richly rewarded its residents for the many years of reconstruction and modernisation.Now Frankfurt is the envy of many visitors - its striking skyline, attractive art exhibitions and impressive museum mansions on the banks of the Main. But even if the rents have soared to astronomical heights and stylish Mainhattan hardly misses a beat when it comes to superlatives, the metropolis has always kept its provincial heart in the right place, it is still more a country town than a capital city - a look in the local section of the city papers will convince anyone. It's exactly this mixture that accounts for the new charm of today's Frankfurt: the contrast between megalomania and village idyll, the latent chaos of urban chic and lively side-by-side of many different cultures and lifestyles that is based on a long and liberal tradition of business and tolerance.

Yamaguchi's 2nd District (1928-1942)

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Yamaguchi's 2nd district was a constituency of the House of Representatives in the Imperial Diet of Japan (national legislature). Between 1928 and 1942 it elected five representatives by single non-transferable vote (SNTV). It consisted of Yamaguchi Prefecture's shima, Kuga, Kumage, Tsuno, Saba and Yoshiki districts. The district was most notably represented by two wartime ministers: Y suke Matsuoka, foreign and colonial minister in the 2nd Konoe cabinet and Nobusuke Kishi, trade and industry minister in the T j cabinet. After the 1946 redistricting all of Yamaguchi formed one limited voting at-large district. In 1947, the area together with six new cities in Yamaguchi (H fu, Kudamatsu, Iwakuni, Hikari, Yamaguchi, Tokuyama) formed the new SNTV 2nd district of Yamaguchi. Kishi was reelected there after his release from prison for the Yoshida Liberal Party in 1953, Hatoyama's Japan Democratic Party in 1955 and later the LDP's conservative anti-mainstream where he chaired his own faction.
