Operation Protective Edge, launched in early July 2014, was the third major Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip in six years. It was also the most deadly. By the conclusion of hostilities some seven weeks later, 2,200 of Gaza’s population had been killed, and more than 10,000 injured. In these pages, journalist Mohammed Omer, a resident of Gaza who lived through the terror of those days with his wife and then three-month-old son, provides a first-hand account of life on-the-ground during Israel’s assault. The images he records in this extraordinary chronicle are a literary equivalent of Goya’s “Disasters of War”: children’s corpses stuffed into vegetable refrigerators, pointlessly because the electricity is off; a family rushing out of their home after a phone call from the Israeli military informs them that the building will be obliterated by an F-16 missile in three minutes; donkeys machine-gunned by Israeli soldiers under instructions to shoot anything that moves; graveyards targeted with shells so that mourners can no longer tell where their relatives are buried; fishing boats ablaze in the harbor. Throughout this carnage, Omer maintains the cool detachment of the professional journalist, determined to create a precise record of what is occurring in front of him. But between his lines the outrage boils, and we are left to wonder how a society such as Israel, widely-praised in the West as democratic and civilized, can visit such monstrosities on a trapped and helpless population.

The Muslim Brotherhood, or Ikhwan, has engaged in terrorism, assassinations, and anti-Western, anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence for almost a century—yet few Americans realize how powerful they really are. While we focus on al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, it's actually the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s oldest, most influential, and most anti-American Islamist group, that has become the preeminent voice and power in the Muslim world. Hiding behind a cloak of respectability and expensive Western suits, the Muslim Brotherhood is installing vehemently anti-American governments and power structures throughout the Middle East and the world, as we sit back and cheer for the "democracy" of the Arab Spring. In his new book, America’s Next Great Enemy: The Rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, Erick Stakelbeck teaches us the frightening truth about this dangerous group, from his first-hand experiences investigating the Brotherhood for eleven years, interviewing its members and visiting its mosques and enclaves. In America’s Next Great Enemy, Stakelbeck: Reveals how the Obama administration has put the Brotherhood on the threshold of power at every turn Examines the alarming ramifications for America, Europe and Israel of the Brotherhood’s rapid rise Warns against the West’s—particularly the Left’s—shortsighted, naïve and deadly embrace of the Ikhwan and Traces the group from its violent roots to its current strategy of “stealth jihad” With Middle Eastern unrest only growing hotter, and saber-rattling at the West only growing louder, the issue of the Muslim Brotherhood’s growing global clout will remain on the front burner of American national security challenges. Revealing and disconcerting, America’s Next Great Enemy is a must-read for every American hoping to remain in a free America.

Royal Dutch/Shell is a multinational behemoth. The company has long been regarded as a world leader and a model for other corporations. That is, until January 2004. In a truly dramatic statement, the company told an incredulous world that estimates of Shell's reserves had been inflated by a staggering 3.9 billion barrels. It was the first of a series of admissions that brought into question Shell's reputation for rectitude and sent its share price tumbling. Shell Shock is an engrossing account which reveals details that have never been included in any company accounts. It exposes the company's appalling environmental record, notably in Nigeria and the United States, and reveals the possible ecological consequences of current plans to extract oil from Sakhalin Island, off Russia's Pacific coast. As the company struggles to recover from what amounts to self-immolation, this timely account of its history shows how an internal cultural revolution and an obsession with spin besmirched the company's good name, the quality that mattered most to Shell's founders.

Der neue große Roman des Booker-Preisträgers Salman Rushdie erzählt in seinem neuen Roman eine zeitlose Liebesgeschichte in einer Welt, in der die Unvernunft regiert. Dunia, die Fürstin des Lichts, verliebt sich in den Philosophen Ibn Rush und zeugt mit ihm viele Kinder, die in die Welt hinaus ziehen. Ibn Rush gilt als Gottesfeind, sein Gegenspieler ist der tiefgläubige islamische Philosoph Ghazali. Die Geister der beiden geraten in Streit. Der Kampf des Glaubens gegen die Vernunft beginnt und entfacht einen so furchtbaren Sturm, dass sich im Weltall ein Spalt öffnet, durch den die zerstörerischen Dschinn zu uns kommen. Die Existenz der Welt steht auf dem Spiel. Dunia entschließt sich, den Menschen zu helfen. Mit großer Fabulierlust verwebt Salman Rushdie Märchenwelten mit unserer heutigen Wirklichkeit. Rasant, komisch und absolut hinreißend, denn Zwei Jahre, acht Monate und achtundzwanzig Nächte ergeben genau tausendundeine Nacht.
