The Senator's Secret , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 367min
9,95 € *

Politics, puppy dogs, and passion, oh my! When his Republican opponent outs him with a photo in a Facebook post, Senator Samuel Dalton doesn't have many options open to him. It doesn't matter that the photo is totally innocent. He has no choice but to come clean...until his staff suggest putting a spin on it that leaves Sam reeling. Sure, he'll end up with a lot of sympathy, not to mention the possibility of more voters from the LGBT community, but it still seems a pretty drastic solution. Now all they have to do is persuade Gary, the other man in the photo, to play along. It sounds so easy: convince the constituents of North Carolina that he and Sam are engaged. No big deal, except for the fact that they've only just met.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Solo. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/068465/bk_acx0_068465_sample.mp3.

Becoming Right: How Campuses Shape Young Conser...

Conservative pundits allege that the pervasive liberalism of America's colleges and universities has detrimental effects on undergraduates, most particularly right-leaning ones. Yet not enough attention has actually been paid to young conservatives to test these claims - until now. In Becoming Right, Amy Binder and Kate Wood carefully explore who conservative students are, and how their beliefs and political activism relate to their university experiences. Which parts of conservatism do these students identify with? How do their political identities evolve on campus? And what do their educational experiences portend for their own futures - and for the future of American conservatism? Becoming Right demonstrates the power that campus culture has in developing students' conservative political styles and shows that young conservatives are made, not born. Focusing on two universities - "Eastern Elite" and "Western Public" - Binder and Wood discover that what is acceptable, or even celebrated, political speech and action on one campus might be unthinkable on another. Right-leaning students quickly learn the styles of conservatism that are appropriate for their schools. Though they might be expected to simply plug into the national conservative narrative - via media from Fox News to Facebook - college conservatives actually enact their politics in starkly different ways. Rich in interviews and insight, Becoming Right illustrates that the diverse conservative movement evolving among today's college students holds important implications for the direction of American politics. 1.

Whose Global Village?: Rethinking How Technolog...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the digital age, technology has shrunk the physical world into a "global village", where we all seem to be connected as an online community as information travels to the farthest reaches of the planet with the click of a mouse. Yet while we think of platforms such as Twitter and Facebook as open and accessible to all, in reality, these are commercial entities developed primarily by and for the Western world. Considering how new technologies increasingly shape labor, economics, and politics, these tools often reinforce the inequalities of globalization, rarely reflecting the perspectives of those at the bottom of the digital divide. This audiobook asks us to reconsider "whose global village" we are shaping with the digital technology revolution today. Sharing stories of collaboration with Native Americans in California and New Mexico, revolutionaries in Egypt, communities in rural India, and others across the world, Ramesh Srinivasan urges us to reimagine what the Internet, mobile phones, or social media platforms may look like when considered from the perspective of diverse cultures. 1.

New Power: How It's Changing the 21st Century -...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Why do some leap ahead while others fall behind in today's chaotic, hyperconnected world? In New Power, Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms confront the biggest stories of our age - the rise of megaplatforms like Facebook and Uber; the out-of-nowhere rise of Trump and Corbyn - and reveal what's really behind them: the rise of New Power.  For most of human history, the rules of power were clear. To get ahead or get things done, you mastered 'old power', which is closed, inaccessible, and leader-driven and jealously guarded. Today, however, we have seen the rise of 'New Power' made by the many rather than the few, open, participatory, peer-driven and fed by our world of ubiquitous connectivity.  It is this New Power that has fuelled the rise of platforms like Facebook and a new species of YouTube celebrities and peer-based services like Uber and Airbnb. It propelled the unlikely success of Barack Obama's 2008 campaign and is at the heart of the increased number political protests and upstart businesses overturning traditional industries.  In telling the story of New Power, Heimans and Timms provide the techniques for using New Power to successfully spread an idea, lead a movement, or build a career in the 21st century. Drawing on examples from business, politics, popular culture, and social justice as well as old power forces like LEGO and NASA that have figured out how to blend old and new power to supercharge their work, they explain the new world we live in. They also explore the dark side of the changes we are living through: the way ISIS has co-opted new power to monstrous ends and the rise of the alt-right's 'intensity machine'.  In a world that is being shaped by New Power, this book will show you how to shape your future.  1.

Shadow State (eBook, ePUB)
7,38 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A thrilling account of how Russia is waging a hidden war against America and the West, using espionage, corruption, fake news, and KGB-style murder March 2018. Two Russian assassins arrive in a provincial English city to kill a former officer from Russia's GRU intelligence agency. His crime? Passing secrets to British spies. The poison? A lethal nerve agent, novichok. The attempted execution was a reminder - as if one were needed - of Russia's contempt for international norms. The Soviet Union and its doctrine are long gone, but the playbook used by the Kremlin's spies during that long confrontation with the West is back. And the underlying goal remains the same: to undermine democracy and exploit divisions within American and European society and politics. Moscow's support for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election has grown into the biggest political scandal of modern times. Its American players are well-known. In Shadow State, award-winning journalist and bestselling author Luke Harding reveals the Russians behind the story: the spies, hackers and internet trolls. Harding charts how the Kremlin has updated Communist-era methods of influence and propaganda for the age of Facebook and Twitter, and considers the compelling question of our age: what exactly does Vladimir Putin have on President Trump? Similar to those of the Cold War, Putin's ambitions are truly global. His emissaries include oligarchs, bankers, lawyers, mercenaries, and agents of influence. They roam from Salisbury to Helsinki, Ukraine to Central Africa, London to Washington, D.C. Shadow State is the singular account of how the Kremlin seeks to reshape the world, to divide the US from its European friends, and to remake America in its own dark and kleptocratic image. This is an essential read for anyone who wants to understand how our politics came to be so chaotic and divided. Nothing less than the future of Western democracy is at stake.
