    På flukt fra naziregimet i Tyskland kom den kjente Freud-eleven Wilhelm Reich til Oslo i 1934, invitert av professor Harald Schjelderup. Da hadde flere nordmenn allerede utdannet seg innen psykoanalyse i Wien, Berlin og Zürich. Reichs forelesninger ved Universitetet vakte voldsom debatt. Med ett ble det ubevisste og seksualitetens frigjøring satt på dagsordenen, og frontene var steile. Vidkun Quisling angrep Reich som en «jødisk-bolsjevikisk seksual.pornograf».Reich hadde en rekke norske kulturpersonligheter i analyse. Samtidig hadde han høye forskerambisjoner; han ville løse kreftens gåte og avdekke livsenergien som en medisinsk realitet. Sammen med Sigurd Hoel og Arnulf Øverland møtte han dessuten Lev Trotskij, som befant seg i Norge som flyktning.Du må ikke sove er et banebrytende bidrag til norsk og internasjonal kulturhistorie.

  • av David G. Chandler

    In this “engrossing,” (The New Yorker) vivid, and intensively researched volume, esteemed Napoleon scholar David Chandler outlines the military strategy that led the famous French emperor to his greatest victories—and to his ultimate downfall.Napoleonic war was nothing if not complex—an ever-shifting kaleidoscope of moves and intentions, which by themselves went a long way towards baffling and dazing his conventionally minded opponents into that state of disconcerting moral disequilibrium which so often resulted in their catastrophic defeat. The Campaigns of Napoleon is a masterful analysis and insightful critique of Napoleon's art of war as he himself developed and perfected it in the major military campaigns of his career. Napoleon disavowed any suggestion that he worked from formula (“Je n'ai jamais eu un plan d'opérations”), but military historian David Chandler demonstrates this was at best only a half-truth. To be sure, every operation Napoleon conducted contained unique improvisatory features. But there were from the first to the last certain basic principles of strategic maneuver and battlefield planning that he almost invariably put into practice. To clarify these underlying methods, as well as the style of Napoleon's fabulous intellect, Chandler examines in detail each campaign mounted and personally conducted by Napoleon, analyzing the strategies employed, revealing wherever possible the probable sources of his subject's military ideas. “Writing clearly and vividly, [Chandler] turns dozens of persons besides Napoleon from mere wooden soldiers into three- dimensional characters” (The Boston Globe) and this definitive work is “a fine book for the historian, the student, and the intelligent reader” (The New York Review of Books).

    Med utgangspunkt i ny og banebrytende akeologisk- og antrepologisk forskning forteller forfatterne David Graeber og David Wengrow hvordan historien blir et langt mer interessant sted når vi begynner å se hva som egentlig er der. Hvis mennesker ikke brukte 95 prosent av sin evolusjonære fortid i bittesmå grupper jeger-samlere, hva gjorde de hele den tiden? Begynnelsen til alt forandrer vår forståelse av menneskets fortid og viser hvordan man kan forestille seg nye former for frihet, nye måter å organisere samfunnet på. Dette er en monumental bok med formidabel intellektuell rekkevidde.«Et dristig ambisiøst verk ... underholdende og tankevekkende». Observer«For en gave ... Graeber og Wengrow tilbyr en historie fra de siste 30 000 årene som ikke bare er veldig forskjellig fra alt vi er vant til, men også langt mer interessant: strukturert, overraskende, paradoksalt, inspirerende». Atlantic«Banebrytende og uærbødig ... spennende lesning». The Guardian«Spenstig og potensielt revolusjonerende ... Dette er mer enn en fortelling om fortiden, det handler om den menneskelige tilstanden i nåtiden». Sunday Times«En fascinerende, radikal og leken inngang til en tilsynelatende uttømmelig sjanger, menneskehetens store evolusjonshistorie. Den søker intet mindre enn å fullstendig oppheve vilkårene som standardfortellingen hviler på ... lærd, overbevisende og ofte bemerkelsesverdig morsom ... når du først begynner å tenke som Graeber og Wengrow, er det vanskelig å stoppe». Boston Review«En spektakulær, iøynefallende og banebrytende fortelling om menneskets historie, flammende med ikonoklastiske tilbakevisninger av tradisjonell kunnskap.

  • - The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World
    av Iain McGilchrist
    244,-

    Why is the brain divided? The difference between right and left hemispheres has been puzzled over for centuries. In a book of unprecedented scope, Iain McGilchrist draws on a vast body of recent brain research, illustrated with case histories, to reveal that the difference is profound—not just this or that function, but two whole, coherent, but incompatible ways of experiencing the world. The left hemisphere is detail oriented, prefers mechanisms to living things, and is inclined to self-interest, where the right hemisphere has greater breadth, flexibility, and generosity. This division helps explain the origins of music and language, and casts new light on the history of philosophy, as well as on some mental illnesses.In the second part of the book, McGilchrist takes the reader on a journey through the history of Western culture, illustrating the tension between these two worlds as revealed in the thought and belief of thinkers and artists, from Aeschylus to Magritte. He argues that, despite its inferior grasp of reality, the left hemisphere is increasingly taking precedence in the modern world, with potentially disastrous consequences. This is truly a tour de force that should excite interest in a wide readership.

    From the international bestselling author of KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON and THE LOST CITY OF Z, a mesmerising story of shipwreck, mutiny and murder, culminating in a court martial that reveals a shocking truth. On 28th January 1742, a ramshackle vessel of patched-together wood and cloth washed up on the coast of Brazil. Inside were thirty emaciated men, barely alive, and they had an extraordinary tale to tell. They were survivors of His Majesty’s ship The Wager, a British vessel that had left England in 1740 on a secret mission during an imperial war with Spain. While chasing a Spanish treasure-filled galleon, The Wager was wrecked on a desolate island off the coast of Patagonia. The crew, marooned for months and facing starvation, built the flimsy craft and sailed for more than a hundred days, traversing 2,500 miles of storm-wracked seas. They were greeted as heroes. Then, six months later, another, even more decrepit, craft landed on the coast of Chile. This boat contained just three castaways and they had a very different story to tell. The thirty sailors who landed in Brazil were not heroes – they were mutineers. The first group responded with counter-charges of their own, of a tyrannical and murderous captain and his henchmen. While stranded on the island the crew had fallen into anarchy, with warring factions fighting for dominion over the barren wilderness. As accusations of treachery and murder flew, the Admiralty convened a court martial to determine who was telling the truth. The stakes were life-and-death—for whomever the court found guilty could hang.

    In this gripping sequel to his bestselling 1177 B.C., Eric Cline tells the story of what happened after the Bronze Age collapsed--why some civilizations endured, why some gave way to new ones, and why some disappeared forever At the end of the acclaimed history 1177 B.C., many of the Late Bronze Age civilizations of the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean lay in ruins, undone by invasion, revolt, natural disasters, famine, and the demise of international trade. An interconnected world that had boasted major empires and societies, relative peace, robust commerce, and monumental architecture was lost and the so-called First Dark Age had begun. Now, in After 1177 B.C., Eric Cline tells the compelling story of what happened next, over four centuries, across the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean world. It is a story of resilience, transformation, and success, as well as failures, in an age of chaos and reconfiguration. After 1177 B.C. tells how the collapse of powerful Late Bronze Age civilizations created new circumstances to which people and societies had to adapt. Those that failed to adjust disappeared from the world stage, while others transformed themselves, resulting in a new world order that included Phoenicians, Philistines, Israelites, Neo-Hittites, Neo-Assyrians, and Neo-Babylonians. Taking the story up to the resurgence of Greece marked by the first Olympic Games in 776 B.C., the book also describes how world-changing innovations such as the use of iron and the alphabet emerged amid the chaos. Filled with lessons for today about why some societies survive massive shocks while others do not, After 1177 B.C. reveals why this period, far from being the First Dark Age, was a new age with new inventions and new opportunities.

    "Contrary to popular belief, our predecessors had all sorts of obscene hobbies long before Christian Grey hit the scene. In this enlightening romp, learn about the first instances of homosexuality on record from the ancient world and the diverse history of nonbinary gender; encounter a thousand years' worth of hilarious and horrifying contraceptive methods; consider the positive and negative effects of the widespread availability of pornography in the digital age-and how our relationship to it changed during the pandemic; take a sneaky riffle through centuries of bedside drawers; and discover the dirty little secrets of luminaries such as Julius Caesar, James Joyce, Albert Einstein, and Virginia Woolf. Author Esmâe Louise James also identifies the key tipping points that directly inform current beliefs around sex to place the past in conversation with the present. By educating ourselves about the weird, wonderful, and varied spectrum of human sexuality and experience, we can normalize and destigmatize sex, write people of marginalized sexual identities back into the pages of history, and build toward a more liberated future"--
