  • David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants

    Karton Kapak
    'Gladwell's most enjoyable book so far. It is a feel-good extravaganza, nourishing both heart and mind'Financial Times   'I devoured in a single reading' Richard E. Grant   'When you read it, you feel like you can topple giants' Jon Ronson   What if everything we thought about power was wrong? What if, in the ancient story of the shepherd boy who topples a giant, David actually had the advantage? This thought sets Malcolm Gladwell on an extraordinary journey that takes him from art to basketball, the brain to revolutions, along the way weaving unforgettable stories of misfits, outsiders, tricksters and underdogs who have faced outsized challenges and won. With his trademark warmth, humour and gift for showing us the world through new eyes, Gladwell lets us see why the powerful aren't always what we think they are - and that some of us have more strength and purpose than we could ever imagine.   'Intoxicating, powerful and morally engaged' Guardian   'Truly intriguing and inspiring' Los Angeles Times 'Breath-taking and thought-provoking' The New York Times   'An energetic, counterintuitive exploration of why (and how) underdogs succeed' Guardian, Books of the Year   'Continuing to gently but persistently blow my mind' Lauren Laverne

  • The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden

    Karton Kapak
    As delightfully wry and witty as his bestselling debut, ‘The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared’, this is a tale of how one woman’s attempt to change her future ended up changing everything. Nombeko Mayeki is on the run from the world’s most ruthless secret service – with three Chinese sisters, twins who are officially one person and an elderly potato farmer. Oh, and the fate of the King of Sweden – and the world – rests on her shoulders. Born in a Soweto shack in 1961, Nombeko was destined for a short, hard life. When she was run over by a drunken engineer her luck changed. Alive, but blamed for the accident, she was made to work for the engineer – who happened to be in charge of a project vital to South Africa’s security. Nombeko was good at cleaning, but brilliant at understanding numbers. The drunk engineer wasn’t – and made a big mistake. And now only Nombeko knows about it … As uproariously funny as Jonas Jonasson’s bestselling debut, this is an entrancing tale of luck, love and international relations.

  • Deutscher Film mit türkischer Seele

    Karton Kapak
    Inhaltlich unveränderte Neuauflage. Die Filme von deutschen Filmemachern mit türkischer Herkunft erfreuen sich ei­ner immer größer werdenden Beliebtheit. Spätestens seit dem Erfolg von Fatih Akins “Gegen die Wand” ist klar, dass sich der “deutsch-türkische” Film längst vom “Betroffenheitskino” der 1970er und 1980er Jahre entfernt hat. Das Leben als Migrant in einer fremden Kultur ist längst nicht mehr das be­herr­schende filmische Thema. Die Sichtweise der jüngeren, oftmals in Deutsch­land geborenen türkischstämmigen Regisseure ist eine dif­fe­ren­zier­te­re. Sie sehen das gesellschaftliche Umfeld ihrer Protagonisten aus deutscher so­wie aus türkischer Perspektive. Spiegelt dieser Blickwinkel die Realität an­ge­mes­sen wieder? Und macht gerade dieser Punkt die Faszination und den Er­folg dieser Filme aus? Die Autorin Diana Schäffler befasst sich mit den verschiedenen Phänomenen des “deutsch-türkischen” Films von den 1970er Jahren bis zur Gegenwart. Ei­nen besonderen Schwerpunkt legt sie dabei auf die Darstellung der Migration im “deutsch-türkischen” Film. Mit aktuellen Zahlen, Daten und Fakten do­ku­men­tiert sie das Zusammenleben von Türken und Deutschen in der Bun­des­re­pu­blik. Anhand ausgewählter Beispiele stellt sie anschließend die aktuellen Ten­denzen sowie die Entwicklungsgeschichte des “deutsch-türkischen” Films vom “Betroffenheitskino” zum “Kino der doppelten Kulturen” dar.

  • Righting the Mother Tongue: From Olde English to Email, the Tangled Story of English Spelling

    Karton Kapak
    When did ghost acquire its silent h? Will cyberspace kill the one in rhubarb? And was it really rocket scientists who invented spell-check? In Righting the Mother Tongue, author David Wolman tells the cockamamie story of English spelling, by way of a wordly adventure from English battlefields to Google headquarters. Along the way, he joins spelling reformers picketing the national spelling bee, visits the town in Belgium—not England—where the first English books were printed, and takes a road trip with the boss at Merriam-Webster Inc. Wolman punctuates the journey with spelling wars waged by the likes of Samuel Johnson, Noah Webster, Theodore Roosevelt, and Andrew Carnegie. Rich with history, pop culture, curiosity, and humor, Righting the Mother Tongue explores how English spelling came to be, traces efforts to mend the code, and imagines the shape of tomorrow's words.
