CRIMEAN DEADLOCK Ukrainian militants are the initial suspects in a terrorist attack on Washington, DC, until rumors surface suggesting Moscow was behind the bombing. But the investigation only raises more questions. Was the attack an attempt to mute US criticism of Russia, or a call to action to help suppress Ukrainian dissidents? Only one man can solve the riddle and mete out appropriate punishment: Mack Bolan. From Manhattan's Little Ukraine to the war-torn country itself, Bolan blazes a path of truth and justice to neutralize the threat…and prevent another slaughter on American soil even as the danger increases with enemies and allies emerging on both sides of the Crimean conflict. But the Executioner is no middleman; he has his own war to fight, and he won't stop until his opponents are ashes.

Totalitarian rule is commonly thought to derive from spe- cific ideologies that justify the complete control by the state of social, cultural, and political institutions. The major goal of this volume is to demonstrate that in some cases brutal forms of state control have been the only way to maintain basic social order.Dmitry Shlapentokh seeks to show that totalitarian or semi-totalitarian regimes have their roots in a fear of disorder that may overtake both rulers and the society at large. Although ideology has played an important role in many totalitarian regimes, it has not always been the chief reason for repression. In many cases, the desire to establish order led to internal terror and intrusiveness in all aspects of human life.Shlapentokh seeks the roots of this phenomenon in France in the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries, when asocial processes in the wake of the Hundred Years War led to the emergence of a brutal absolutist state whose features and policies bore a striking resemblance to totalitarian regimes in the Soviet Union and China. State punishment and control allowed for relentless drive to "normalize" society with the state actively engaged in the regulation of social life. There were attempts to regulate the economy and instances of social engineering, attempts to populate emerging colonial empires with exiles and produce "new men and women" through reeducation. This increased harshness in dealing with the populace, in fact, the emergence of a new sort of bondage, was combined with a twisted form of humanitarianism and the creation of a rudimentary safety net. Some of these elements can be found in the democratic societies of the modern West, although in their aggregation these attributes are essential features of totalitarian regimes of the modem era.

This book recounts the dramatic true story of the Discalced Carmelite nuns of Compiègne, martyred during the French Revolution's "Great Terror," and known to the world through their fictional representation in Gertrud von Le Fort's Song at the Scaffold and Francis Poulenc's Dialogues of the Carmelites. At the height of the French Revolution's "Great Terror," a community of sixteen Carmelite nuns from Compiègne offered their lives to restore peace to the church and to France. Ten days after their deaths by the guillotine, Robespierre fell, and with his execution on the same scaffold the Reign of Terror effectively ended. Had God thus accepted and used the Carmelites' generous self-gift? Through Gertrud von Le Fort's modern novella, Song at the Scaffold, and Francis Poulenc's famed opera, Dialogues of the Carmelites, (with its libretto by Georges Bernanos), modern audiences around the world have become captivated by the mysterious destiny of these Compiègne martyrs, Blessed Teresa of St. Augustine and her companions. Now, for the first time in English, William Bush explores at length the facts behind the fictional representations, and reflects on their spiritual significance. Based on years of research, this book recounts in lively detail virtually all that is known of the life and background of each of the martyrs, as well as the troubled times in which they lived. The Compiègne Carmelites, sustained by their remarkable prioress, emerge as distinct individuals, struggling as Christians to understand and respond to an awesome calling, relying not on their own strength but on the mercy of God and the guiding hand of Providence. The book includes an index and 15 photos.

Das Standardwerk: Über die »ganz gewöhnlichen Deutschen« als Täter Daniel Goldhagen hat mit seiner Studie über die Vollstrecker des Holocaust heftige Debatten ausgelöst. Seine These: Schon lange vor Hitler war der Antisemitismus tief verwurzelt in der deutschen Gesellschaft. Es waren nicht nur einige SS-Leute, sondern ganz gewöhnliche Deutsche, die millionenfach Juden erniedrigten und ermordeten.

Based on the rare and until now overlooked journal of a Renaissance-era executioner, the noted historian Joel F. Harrington's The Faithful Executioner takes us deep inside the alien world and thinking of Meister Frantz Schmidt of Nuremberg, who, during forty-five years as a professional executioner, personally put to death 394 individuals and tortured, flogged, or disfigured many hundreds more. But the picture that emerges of Schmidt from his personal papers is not that of a monster. Could a man who routinely practiced such cruelty also be insightful, compassionate—even progressive? In The Faithful Executioner, Harrington vividly re-creates a life filled with stark contrasts, from the young apprentice's rigorous training under his executioner father to the adult Meister Frantz's juggling of familial duties with his work in the torture chamber and at the scaffold. With him we encounter brutal highwaymen, charming swindlers, and tragic unwed mothers accused of infanticide, as well as patrician senators, godly chaplains, and corrupt prison guards. Harrington teases out the hidden meanings and drama of Schmidt's journal, uncovering a touching tale of inherited shame and attempted redemption for the social pariah and his children. The Faithful Executioner offers not just the compelling firsthand perspective of a professional torturer and killer, but testimony of one man's lifelong struggle to reconcile his bloody craft with his deep religious faith. The biography of an ordinary man struggling for his soul, this groundbreaking book also offers an unparalleled panoramic view of Europe on the cusp of modernity, a society riven by violent conflict at all levels and encumbered by paranoia, superstition, and abuses of power. Thanks to an extraordinary historical source and its gifted interpreter, we recognize far more of ourselves than we might have expected in this intimate portrait of a professional killer from a faraway world.

Das Opus Magnum des großen amerikanischen Psychoanalytikers und Bestsellerautors Irvin D. Yalom Der jüdische Philosoph Spinoza und der nationalsozialistische Politiker Alfred Rosenberg – nicht nur Jahrhunderte liegen zwischen ihnen, auch ihre Weltanschauungen könnten unterschiedlicher nicht sein. Der eine ein unbeugsamer Freigeist, der wegen seiner religionskritischen Ansichten aus der jüdischen Gemeinde verbannt wurde und heute als Begründer der modernen Bibelkritik gilt. Der andere ein verbohrter, von Hass zerfressener Antisemit, dessen Schriften ihn zum führenden Ideologen des nationalsozialistischen Regimes machten und der dafür bei den Nürnberger Prozessen zur Rechenschaft gezogen wurde. Und trotzdem gibt es eine Verbindung zwischen ihnen, von der kaum jemand weiß, denn bis zu seinem Tod war Rosenberg wie besessen vom Werk des jüdischen Rationalisten, als dessen »entschiedenster Verehrer« sich kein geringerer als Johann Wolfgang von Goethe bezeichnet. Fesselnd erzählt der große Psychoanalytiker Irvin D. Yalom die Geschichte dieser beiden unterschiedlichen Männer und entführt seine Leser dabei in die Welt der Philosophie und gleichzeitig auch in die Tiefen der menschlichen Psyche.

Was passiert hinter den Fronten des Jihad? Wie ticken Warlords und jugendliche Attentäter? Spannend wie in einem Krimi berichtet Souad Mekhennet von ihren teils lebensgefährlichen Recherchen in den No-go-Areas des Terrors, allein, ohne Handy, bekleidet mit einer schwarzen Abaya. Die Journalistin Souad Mekhennet verfügt über ungewöhnliche Verbindungen zu den Most Wanted des Jihad – und über ein einzigartiges investigatives Talent. Sie deckte die Entführung und Folterung des Deutsch-Libanesen Khaled al-Masri durch die CIA auf, interviewte den Führer von al-Qaida im Maghreb, obwohl ihr die Geheimdienste auf den Fersen waren, lernte ein ägyptisches Foltergefängnis unfreiwillig von innen kennen, enttarnte den berüchtigten IS-Henker "Jihadi John" und wusste nach den Pariser Anschlägen schon vor der Polizei, wer der in Saint Denis erschossene Attentäter war. Ihre meisterhaften Nahaufnahmen lassen uns die Kämpfe und Wünsche der islamischen Welt besser verstehen und führen uns heilsam vor Augen, dass sich der Clash zwischen Islam und Westen in Wirklichkeit nur in den Köpfen abspielt.
