Combining the latest insights from KIng biographies and movement histories, this book provides an up-to-date critical analysis of the relationship between King and the wider civil rights movement. Delivering a fresh perspective on the relationship between 'the man and the movement', Kirk argues that it is the interactionbetween national and local movement concerns that is essential to understanding King's leadership and black activism in the 1950s and 1960s. Kirk examines King's strengths and his limitations, and weighs the role that king played in then movement alongside the contributions of other civil rights organizations and leaders, and local civil rights activists. Suitable for undergraduate courses in 20th century US history.

Martin Luther King, Jr is one of the iconic figures of 20th century history, and one of the most influential and important in the American Civil Rights Movement; John Kirk here presents the life of Martin Luther King in the context of that movement, placing him at the center of the Afro-American fight for equality and recognition. This book combines the insights from two fields of study, seeking to combine the top down; national federal policy-oriented approach to the movement with the bottom up, local grassroots activism approach to demonstrate how these different levels of activism intersect and interact with each other.

Why do we do develop habits? And how can we change them? We can always change. In The Power of Habit, award-winning New York Times business reporter Charles Duhigg translates cutting-edge behavioural science into practical self-improvement action, distilling advanced neuroscience into fascinating narratives of transformation. Why can some people and companies change overnight, and some stay stuck in their old ruts? The answer lies deep in the human brain, and The Power of Habits reveals the secret pressure points that can change a life. From Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps to Martin Luther King Jr., from the CEO of Starbucks to the locker rooms of the NFL, Duhigg explores the incredible results of keystone habits, and how they can make all the difference between billions and millions, failure and success – or even life and death. The Power of Habit makes an exhilarating case: the key to almost any door in life is instilling the right habit. From exercise to weight loss, childrearing to productivity, market disruption to social revolution, and above all success, the right habits can change everything. Habits aren't destiny. They’re science, one which can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

Martin Luther King Jr. is widely viewed as an American civil rights leader who applied principled and situational nonviolence in efforts to eradicate racism, poverty, and violence in the United States in the 1950s and 60s. It is too often forgotten that he was also a self-proclaimed "world citizen" with a global vision, and that he envisioned the advance of globalization long before most of his contemporaries. This book exposes the global King who united in spirit and practice with other world leaders and representatives of the World Council of Churches to promulgate enduring peace and human community. It brings us to a new appreciation of the global King and explains how he continues to inform our understanding of what it means to live and function in the "world house."

Das Leben des letzten deutschen Kaisers Christopher Clark folgt der Karriere des letzten deutschen Kaisers: die schwierige Jugend bei Hof, die Etablierung seiner Macht sowie seine politischen Auseinandersetzungen und Ziele. Mit dem Ersten Weltkrieg endet auch die Herrschaft Wilhelms II. Der Kaiser dankt ab und muss den Rest seines Lebens im Exil verbringen. Clarks sorgfältig recherchiertes Buch bietet eine neue, zuweilen provokante Interpretation des Monarchen und seiner dreißig Jahre währenden Regentschaft. Hätte Deutschland einen anderen Weg eingeschlagen, wenn ein anderer Herrscher als Wilhelm II. das Land ins 20. Jahrhundert geführt hätte? Inwieweit prägte seine Persönlichkeit die deutschen Geschicke? Christopher Clark nimmt zunächst Wilhelms Kindheit und Jugend in den Blick. Vater und Großvater, und damit zwei politische Lager – das progressive und das reaktionäre – stritten um die Erziehung des Prinzen. 1888 folgte Wilhelm seinem Vater auf den Thron. Clark untersucht Wilhelms außen- wie innenpolitisches Wirken und betrachtet schließlich auch dessen Rolle im Sommer 1914. Nach dem verlorenen Krieg und seiner Abdankung wurde Wilhelm II. zum Objekt des Hasses. Und noch heute ist sein Image weitgehend negativ. Clarks Ziel ist es nicht, Wilhelm II. zu rehabilitieren. Und doch fragt er zu Recht, ob die Geschichtsschreibung nicht zu einer Dämonisierung des letzten deutschen Kaisers beigetragen hat. 150. Geburtstag Wilhelms II. am 27. Januar 2009.
