Lilian Munk Rösing portrætter på kalejdoskopisk vis Anna Anchers kunstneriske og personlige virke i "Anna Anchers rum". Anna Ancher står som en af de helt centrale skikkelser blandt skagensmalerne, og hun formåede både at samle og udtrykke den kunstneriske energi, der løb så stærkt de år. Hun kunne med stærke farver og kraftige penselstrøg skabe sensitive stemninger og sarte, levende lysindfald, der blev til udtryksfulde og levende rum i hendes værker. I "Anna Anchers rum" giver Lilian Munk Rösings en nuanceret og perspektiverende indsigt i Anna Anchers betydningsfulde rolle i dansk malerkunst, hendes stoflige, nyskabende kunst og hendes personlige liv som kvinde.Læs mere
History remembers Wellington's defeat of Napoleon, but has forgotten the role of Field Marshal Radetzky in the battles which led to Napoleon's abdication and first exile in 1814. As Chief of Staff to the allied coalition of 1813-14, Radetzky determined the shape of the most decisive campaigns of the Napoleonic Wars by creating the strategy that defeated the Corsican in Germany and then France. Neither Russia nor Prussia had been able to overcome Napoleon in battle and it took the brilliant diplomacy of Metternich and the military genius of Radetzky to ensure victory over the Emperor. In short, the Austrian contribution decisively tipped the balance against Napoleon - a fact which has always been overlooked by historians. It was Radetzky, too, at the age of eighty-two, who defeated the Italians in 1848 and 1849 and thus saved Europe once again from the prospect of international war and revolution. The wars Radetzky fought - and won - throughout his extensive military career were of the greatest possible significance in European history, yet today, he is almost forgotten - remembered only in the music of the Radetzky March, dedicated to him by Johann Strauss the elder.In this, the first biography of Radetzky to be published in English, Alan Sked paints a vivid picture of an exceptional, yet neglected commander of genius in a book which will be fascinating reading for enthusiasts of military and modern European history.Læs mere

Den Pulitzer-vindende journalist John Newman har modtaget et brev fra en professor, som leder ham på sporet af skatten Ravkammeret, der har været forsvundet siden Anden Verdenskrig. Professoren findes imidlertid myrdet, og John Newman får snart på fornemmelsen, at dette er historien om mere end bare en forsvundet naziskat. Hans søgen efter sandheden bringer ham til både Tyskland, Cypern og Israel, hvor han blandt andet samler spor hos en tidligere tysk ubådskaptajn, en lokal tosse og en journalists moster. Han bliver jagtet af både nazister og jøder, som ikke skyr nogen midler for at beskytte deres hemmeligheder. Men hvad er det for et mysterium, Newman er blevet involveret i, og slipper han nogensinde ud af det igen? Uddrag af bogen
Han havde insisteret på, at de skulle tage den store model. Jaguarens 500 hestekræfter pressede bilen frem. Foran dem trak to biler ud for at spærre vejen for dem. ”Du kan ikke nå at komme forbi dem,” udbrød Mila. Newman kørte bilen hen over kantstenen. Halvt oppe på plænen ved siden af vejen og halvt på vejen håbede han at kunne klemme bilen forbi. Der var ikke meget plads. Kom han for langt til venstre, ville de ramme træerne, og kom han for langt til højre, ville de støde ind i bilerne. Jo tættere de kom på bilerne, des mere sikker blev han på, at der ikke var nok plads. Men det var deres eneste chance. Om forfatteren

We are Human Angels can now count on many different translations (and other translations are yet to come) and has become the benchmark for the steadily increasing community of Human Angels in the world.Læs mere
Charles Dickens’ roman Oliver Twist fra 1838 er en af engelsk litteraturs absolut mest berømte værker. Den er en letlæst og medrivende tåreperser om den forældreløse dreng Olivers grumme skæbne i Londons underverden af ludere og lommetyve. Men den er samtidig et rasende sarkastisk opgør med det herskende samfundssyn i 1800-tallets England, hvor en ny og særdeles kynisk sociallov netop var blevet indført. Ved siden af den gode og renhjertede Oliver og den onde leder af lommetyvebanden Fagin møder vi et hav af farverige bipersoner, som både vækker latter og tårer, og det er gennem alle disse menneskeskildringer, Dickens’ roman først og fremmest lever.Læs mere
The New York Times Bestseller_____________For decades, the diet wars have pitted advocates for the low-carb, high-fat paleo diet against advocates of the exclusively plant-based vegan diet and dozens of other diets leaving most of us bewildered and confused. For those of us on the sidelines, trying to figure out which approach is best has been nearly impossible - both extreme diets have unique benefits and drawbacks. But how can it be, we've asked desperately, that our only options are bacon and butter three times a day or endless kale salads?

With The Pegan Diet, a food is medicine approach, Mark Hyman explains how to take the best aspects of the paleo diet (good fats, limited refined carbs, limited sugar) and combine them with the vegan diet (lots and lots of fresh, healthy veggies) to create a delicious diet that is not only good for your brain and your body, but also good for the planet.Featuring 30 recipes, and plenty of infographics illustrating the concepts, The Pegan Diet offers a balanced and easy-to-follow approach to eating that will help you get, and stay, fit, healthy, focused, and happy - for life.'Now, more than ever, we need to utilize the power of food to help our society overcome the epidemic of chronic disease.

A small culturally mixed community living in an apartment building in the center of Rome is thrown into dissaray when one of the tenants is murdered. As each of the victim's neighbors is questioned by the police, readers are offered an all-access pass into the most colorful neighborhood in contemporary Rome. Each character takes his or her turn "giving evidence," recounting his or her story--the drama of racial identity, the anxieties and daily humiliations born of a life spent on society's margins, but also the hilarious imbroglios that are inevitable in this melting pot of cultures. What emerges is a moving story that is common to us all. With language that is as colorful as the neighborhood it describes, Clash of Civilizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio is characterized by a seemingly effortless prose that borrows from the cinematic tradition of the Commedia all'Italiana , as exemplified by directors such as Federico Fellini. At the heart of this bittersweet comedy, winner of Italy's prestigious Flaiano Prize for Fiction, is a social reality we often tend to ignore and an anthropological analysis, refreshing in its generosity, that cannot fail to fascinate.Læs mere

A witty, moving philosophical novel, Jack Kerouac's The Dharma Bums is a journey of self-discovery through the lens of Zen Buddhist thought. This Penguin Modern Classics edition includes an introduction by Ann Douglas.Following the explosive energy of On the Road, the book that put the Beat Genration on the literary map - and Jack Kerouac on the bestseller list - comes The Dharma Bums, in which Kerouac charts the spiritual quest of a group of friends in search of Dharma, or Truth. Ray Smith and his friend Japhy, along with Morley the yodeller, head off into the high Sierras to seek the lesson of solitude and experience the Zen way of life. But in wildly Bohemian San Francisco, with its poetry jam sessions, marathon drinking bouts and experiments in 'yabyum', they find the ascetic route distinctly hard to follow.Jack Kerouac (1922-69) was an American novelist, poet, artist and part of the Beat Generation. His first published novel, The Town and the City, appeared in 1950, but it was On the Road, published in 1957, that made Kerouac famous. Publication of his many other books followed, among them The Subterraneans, Big Sur, and The Dharma Bums. Kerouac died in Florida at the age of forty-seven.If you enjoyed The Dharma Bums, you might like Kerouac's On the Road, also available in Penguin Classics.'A vivid evocation of part of our time'New York Post'A descriptive excitement unmatched since the days of Thomas Wolfe'The New York Times Book ReviewLæs mere

The Doctor's arrived...And his treatment is sizzling She's a young college student, set on a scrupulous career as a school teacher. I'm a doctor with a checkered past. Binge drinking on weekends, sleeping with women I care nothing for, and seeking summers with women I rent, has been my life. Until I saw her face on the club's website. The Dungeon of Decorum may have found her, but I'd take her as my own. Fighting men who wanted to use her in ways I found distasteful, I finally won her. She was mine to do with as I wanted. And I wanted all of her But she'd only get part of me. It had to be that way. She was my secret. From our first touch, a spark ignited, neither of us had ever felt before.

Could I face the world with what I'd done? Or would I run, leaving her behind me, safe as long as she wasn't with me? Love is temporary, at best. Happily, ever after endings are merely fantasies, or so we both thought...Læs mere
Now a major motion picture
The true story of one man's struggle to survive Muay Thai fights, drugs, and the notorious "Bangkok Hilton" prison in Thailand.
The first time Billy Moore walked into his cell packed with seventy prisoners, the floor resembled a mass grave, with intertwined arms and legs, and the smell of human feces was so strong he almost vomited. That night, he slept next to a dead man. It wouldn't be the last time. Behind the walls of Klong Prem "Bangkok Hilton" prison, life has no value. Overcrowded cells are a breeding ground for HIV, TB, dengue fever, and hepatitis, and the conditions are putrid and brutal. In an environment where drugs, murder, rape, and corruption run rampant, Moore fights to stay afloat above madness and his inner demons. A few years before, Moore had traveled to Thailand to escape a life of heroin addiction and alcoholism in England. In an attempt to stay straight, he became a professional Muay Thai boxer, worked as an extra in Rambo alongside Sylvester Stallone, and even fell in love. However, in the poverty-stricken back streets of Chiang Mai, Moore's life quickly descended back into chaos when he relapsed after trying ya ba, the deadly crack cocaine of Southeast Asia. Moore was imprisoned first in Chiang Mai Central Prison and later in Klong Prem prison, a hellhole of filth and horror that very few will ever experience and none would want to see again. As a "farang" (foreigner), Moore struggles to survive the prison's atrocities by making strategic friends, fighting in the prison's Muay Thai boxing team, and even converting to Islam and praying five times a day. However, what requires more stamina and grit than any of his boxing matches is not just dealing with dangerous Thai criminals that lurk behind prison walls, but also resisting his addictions in an environment where drugs run plenty and wrestling with guilt. A Prayer Before Dawn is no ordinary prison memoir; it's the story of one man's survival amid inhumane circumstances and, most importantly, his redemption in the most unlikely of places.
Announcing the completely revised and updated edition of The Wine Bible , the perennial bestselling wine book praised as "The most informative and entertaining book I've ever seen on the subject" (Danny Meyer), "A guide that has all the answers" (Bobby Flay), "Astounding" (Thomas Keller), and "A magnificent masterpiece of wine writing" (Kevin Zraly). Like a lively course from an expert teacher, The Wine Bible grounds the reader deeply in the fundamentals while layering on informative asides, tips, amusing anecdotes, definitions, glossaries, photos (all new for this edition), maps, labels, and recommended bottles. Karen MacNeil's information comes directly through primary research; for this second edition she has tasted more than 10,000 wines and visited dozens of wine regions around the world. New to the book are wines of China, Japan, Mexico, and Slovenia. And through it all the reader becomes ever more informed--and, because of the author's unique voice, always entertained: "In great years P trus is ravishing, elegant, and rich--Ingrid Bergman in red satin." Or, describing a Riesling: "A laser beam. A sheet of ice. A great crackling bolt of lightning."Læs mere
In this book, Rudolf A. Raff reaches out to the scientifically queasy, using his life story and his growth as a scientist to illustrate why science matters, especially at a time when many Americans are both suspicious of science and hostile to scientific ways of thinking. Noting that science has too often been the object of controversy in school curriculums and debates on public policy issues ranging from energy and conservation to stem-cell research and climate change, Raff argues that when the public is confused or ill-informed, these issues tend to be decided on religious, economic, and political grounds that disregard the realities of the natural world. Speaking up for science and scientific literacy, Raff tells how and why he became an evolutionary biologist and describes some of the vibrant and living science of evolution. Once We All Had Gills is also the story of evolution writ large: its history, how it is studied, what it means, and why it has become a useful target in a cultural war against rational thought and the idea of a secular, religiously tolerant nation.Læs mere
