A Vintage Shorts Original Selection “Why do some forms of violence—the beheading of journalists by the Islamic State, a bombing in Ankara, or the attacks in San Bernardino and Orlando—make us feel so threatened, while other forms—the 372 separate mass shootings in America in 2015 or the 4,219 Syrians killed that same September—do little to challenge our sense of safety?” From his base in Istanbul, Elliot Ackerman has written letters and essays that explore how global and seemingly remote issues like terrorism, US foreign policy, and other geopolitical forces play out and wreak distress upon the quotidian lives of civilians. Here assembled into a haunting piece, the fragments of a year’s notes open a window into life under President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s oppressive and nationalistic right-wing regime, the civil war in Syria, and the disintegration of the old order in the Middle-East. Exposing how a pervasive rhetoric of fear can shape a society and written with intimacy and a tremendous amount of compassion, this is an astute political commentary and first-person travel narrative par excellence. An ebook short.

Vom alten England in die Straßencafés von Paris, über das in der Augusthitze flirrende Korsika bis ins pulsierende New York führt uns diese fesselnde Familiensaga. Sie erzählt von der Macht der wahren Liebe über Jahrzehnte, Kontinente und Generationen hinweg – und davon, wie Herzen und Familien gerade dann miteinander vereint werden, wenn sie für immer verloren scheinen. England, 1928: Alice und Tom kennen sich aus unbeschwerten Kindertagen: sie, die vor Energie sprühende junge Aristokratin, und er, der noch unbekannte Maler. Ihre Liebe fühlt sich an wie die reinste Magie – doch nicht nur Alices Familie setzt alles daran, eine gemeinsame Zukunft zu verhindern. London, sechzig Jahre später: Die junge Fotografin Kate findet im Nachlass ihrer Großmutter eine alte Porträt-Skizze, die ihrer verstorbenen Mutter verblüffend ähnlich sieht. Was hat es mit der Zeichnung auf sich? Und wer ist die Frau darauf? Um dem Geheimnis um das Porträt und um die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter näher zu kommen, macht sich Kate auf die Suche nach dem Künstler, dem berühmten Maler Thomas Stafford ... Die Stunde der Liebenden erzählt von Sehnsucht und Hoffnung, von Verlust und Schmerz, von Abenteuer und Freiheit. Davon, aus Konventionen auszubrechen und den Mut zu finden, seine Ängste zu überwinden. Und vor allem von Liebe und Nähe, die man zulassen muss, um sein Glück im Leben zu finden.

In its transition from 18th century capital of the Ottoman Empire to economic powerhouse of the Turkish Republic, the city of Istanbul has been transformed beyond recognition. After the establishment of the Republic, Turkey increasingly turned to the West for ideas about how to create, shape and direct the development of a modern culture. This desire was felt most strongly in Istanbul, Turkey’s most populous city. Its status as the capital of the Ottoman Empire, and later the economic hub of Turkey, made Istanbul a forum for the different regimes to display their political, ideological and social policies in the context of the built environment. _x000D_ _x000D_ Some modernisation policies never came to fruition - such as the unsuccessful late nineteenth century attempt by young Ottoman bureaucrats to initiate planning reforms at a time when the Empire was on the verge of collapse. The new Turkish Republic at first neglected the old Ottoman capital, and later attempted to make it conform to its secular political ideology. After World War II, Istanbul entered a new era in modernisation, with the Democratic Party government conducting a large scale re-design of Istanbul’s urban form in order to show Turkey as a major political and economic force in post-war Europe and the Middle East. The scale of this modernisation process mirrored the spectacular transformation of Paris a century before: thousands of buildings were demolished, boulevards were carved out within the old city, and whole new residential neighbourhoods were created._x000D_ _x000D_ In telling the story of this dramatic transformation, Murat Gül investigates and traces the impact of these changing policies on the very fabric of the city itself - in its streets, buildings and landscapes - and in the process provides new insights into the history of Turkey._x000D_
