"Becoming"

Автор(и): Michelle Obama
ISBN: 9780241334140
Видавництво: Penguin

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her-from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it-in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations-and whose story inspires us to do the same.

"Nietzsche"

Автор(и): Stefan Zweig
ISBN: 9781843913832
Видавництво: Hesperus Press

This brilliant, newly translated edition of Nietzsche displays Zweig’s particular forte for creatively mapping the psychology of his subject and their historical significance. It is the compelling third part of Stefan Zweig’s much overlooked ‘Master Builders of the Spirit’ series, entitled ‘The Struggle with the Demon’.

Zweig eschews traditional academic discussion and focuses on Nietzsche’s habits, passions and obsessions. This work, concentrating on the man rather than the work, on the tragedy of his existence and his apartness from the world in which he moved in enforced isolation, is a brief tour de force and essential reading for anyone interested in Zweig or Nietzsche. One is drawn inexorably into Nietzsche’s tragic trajectory.

Illustrated with stunning new photographs relating to Nietzsche and his European locations, this is essential reading for anyone interested in Nietzsche, Zweig, first-class biographies and philosophy.

"Riot Days (Hardcover)"

Автор(и): Maria Alyokhina
ISBN: 9780241316429
Видавництво: Penguin

A Pussy Rioter’s riveting, hallucinatory account of her years in Russia’s criminal system and of finding power in the most powerless of situations In February 2012, after smuggling an electric guitar into Moscow’s iconic central cathedral, Maria Alyokhina and other members of the radical collective Pussy Riot performed a provocative “Punk Prayer,” taking on the Orthodox church and its support for Vladimir Putin’s authoritarian regime. For this, they were charged with “organized hooliganism” and were tried while confined in a cage and guarded by Rottweilers.
Evocative, wry, laser-sharp, and laconically funny, Alyokhina’s account is studded with song lyrics, legal transcripts, and excerpts from her jail diary―dispatches from a young woman who has faced tyranny and returned with the proof that
against all odds even one person can force its retreat.
