Kulturminister Abid Raja er blitt kalt breial, brautende, poserende og dominerende. Hans liv har handlet mye om det motsatte: Om å skjule smertene og handikappet han ble født med, å skjule seg for volden og mobbingen - og å skjule kjærligheten til den han elsker. Skyldfølelsen hans - en blanding av skam og frykt, har hindret ham i å kjenne på de andre følelsene han som menneske er utstyrt med. Alt han har kjent, er et voldsomt sinne. Da han som voksen oppsøkte en erfaren, kvinnelig psykolog for å få hjelp til å beherske temperamentet sitt, spurte hun: «Har du noen idé om hvor det sinnet kommer fra? Er det noe annet i livet ditt som du egentlig er sint for?» Dette er den brutalt ærlige historien om Abid Rajas turbulente klassereise, hans mangeårige kamp for kjærligheten og den smertefulle frigjøringen fra skam, skyld og utenforskap.
Igjen ruller en krig over Europa. Kunne den vært unngått?I tredje bind av sine memoarer tar Thorbjørn Jagland leseren med til Strasbourg og sin tid som generalsekretær i Europarådet.Perioden fra 2009 til 2019 var preget av store og dramatiske hendelser i Europa og verden. Det tillitsfulle forholdet til Russland som ble etablert i årene etter murens fall var i ferd med å slå sprekker. Maidanopprøret i Ukraina i 2013, fulgt av Russlands annektering av Krim, representerte et foreløpig bunnpunkt i øst-vest forholdet. På samme tid var både EU og NATO preget av store indre spenninger. I dette brokete landskapet sto Jagland overfor en dobbelt oppgave - på den ene side å reformere et tungrodd og byråkratisk Europaråd og gjenreise respekten for Menneskerettighetsdomstolen, på den annen side å manøvrere - på vegne av rådets 46 stater og 800 millioner innbygger - i et stadig mer komplisert storpolitisk landskap.Gjennom boka trekker også forfatteren linjene frem til dagens politiske situasjon, og spør seg selv hvordan vi kom hit - om kontinentet ville sett anderledes ut nå, om andre valg hadde blitt fattet da.Det er en like fengslende som lærerik vandring gjennom de siste tyve års politiske historie, fra en utkikkspost helt i kjernen av de geopolitiske beslutningene.

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER'Affectionate, evocative, illuminating. A story of survival - of a flock, a landscape and a disappearing way of life.

James Rebanks' isn't. The first son of a shepherd, who was the first son of a shepherd himself, he and his family have lived and worked in and around the Lake District for generations. Their way of life is ordered by the seasons and the work they demand, and has been for hundreds of years. A Viking would understand the work they do: sending the sheep to the fells in the summer and making the hay; the autumn fairs where the flocks are replenished; the gruelling toil of winter when the sheep must be kept alive, and the light-headedness that comes with spring, as the lambs are born and the sheep get ready to return to the fells.
Mein Kampf (German: My Struggle) is a 1925 autobiographical Manifesto of Adolf Hitler, the Nazi Leader. The work outlines Hitlers political ideology and future plans for Germany. Hitler began the book while imprisoned for what he considered to be political crimes following his failed Putsch in Munich in November 1923. Although Hitler received many visitors initially, he soon devoted himself entirely to the book. As he continued, Hitler realized that it would have to be a two-volume work, with the first volume covering world of Hitler's youth, the First World War, and the ';betrayal' of Germany's collapse in 1918; it also expresses His racist political ideology and future plans for Germany. The second volume, written after His release from prison in December 1924, outlines the political program, including the terrorist methods that National Socialism must pursue both in gaining power and in exercising it thereafter in the new Germany.
