Folks. This here is the story of the Loop Garoo Kid. A cowboy so bad he made a working posse of spells phone in sick. A bullwhacker so unfeeling he left the print of winged mice on hides of crawling women. A desperado so onery he made the Pope cry and the most powerful of cattlemen shed his head to the Executioner's swine. And so begins the HooDoo Western by Ishmael Reed, author of Mumbo Jumbo and one of America's most innovative and celebrated writers. Reed demolishes white American history and folklore as well as Christian myth in this masterful satire of contemporary American life. In addition to the black, satanic Loop Garoo Kid, Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down features Drag Gibson (a rich, slovenly cattleman), Mustache Sal (his nymphomaniac mail-order bride), Thomas Jefferson, and many others in a hilarious parody of the old western. 1.

A breakout romantic comedy by the best-selling author of five critically acclaimed novels. Who says you can't run away from your problems? You are a failed novelist about to turn 50. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: Your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can't say yes - it would be too awkward - and you can't say no - it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world. Question: How do you arrange to skip town? Answer: You accept them all. What would possibly go wrong? Arthur Less will almost fall in love in Paris, almost fall to his death in Berlin, barely escape to a Moroccan ski chalet from a Saharan sandstorm, accidentally book himself as the (only) writer-in-residence at a Christian Retreat Center in Southern India, and encounter, on a desert island in the Arabian Sea, the last person on Earth he wants to face. Somewhere in there: He will turn 50. Through it all there is his first love. And there is his last. Because despite all these mishaps, missteps, misunderstandings, and mistakes, Less is, above all, a love story. A scintillating satire of the American abroad, a rumination on time and the human heart, a bittersweet romance of chances lost, by an author the New York Times has hailed as "inspired, lyrical", "elegiac", and "ingenious" as well as "too sappy by half", Less shows a writer at the peak of his talents raising the curtain on our shared human comedy. 1.

Christianity and Democracy
68,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Revision with unchanged content. This is a study of popular perceptions of the issues of Christianity in their connection with the issues of democracy. Such perceptions are common in a popular type of drama of the early 19th century the plays about American Indians. For the characters of these plays, church religion is not the only option, they favor equally well the democratic moral code, including personal freedom and obligation towards fellow countrymen. The following conversation between three Kentucky riflemen is a good example: Ralph. [drinks] Still you know I never gets drunk I m a duly sober man. Frank. But I thought on the last 4th Ralph. O Frank, that s part of my religion, on the 4th and 22d. Arthur. Why Ralph, I never knew before that you ever got religion. Ralph. Got religion! I m choke full of it. But understand me not church religion. My religion is not to stop the Mail to mind my own business, and let other people s alone. (R. Emmons, Tecumseh: or, The Battle of the Thames, 1836) The occurrences of this kind are typical and systematic: plays about American Indians consistently juxtapose two sets of values Christian and democratic so that the values of mercy and benevolence come alongside the values of freedom and patriotism. The book is addressed to English teachers and students and other readers who are interested in American popular literature of the early 19th century.

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE Written with the style of a great novelist and the intrigue of a Cold War thriller, Embers of War is a landmark work that will forever change your understanding of how and why America went to war in Vietnam. Tapping newly accessible diplomatic archives in several nations, Fredrik Logevall traces the path that led two Western nations to tragically lose their way in the jungles of Southeast Asia. He brings to life the bloodiest battles of France's final years in Indochina-and shows how, from an early point, a succession of American leaders made disastrous policy choices that put America on its own collision course with history. An epic story of wasted opportunities and deadly miscalculations, Embers of War delves deep into the historical record to provide hard answers to the unanswered questions surrounding the demise of one Western power in Vietnam and the arrival of another. Eye-opening and compulsively readable, Embers of War is a gripping, heralded work that illuminates the hidden history of the French and American experiences in Vietnam.

It's a God Thing

Often called 'the next Billy Graham,' Luis Palau is among the best-known American evangelists in the world today. His sermons on spirituality and the Christian life, as well as his calls for international and racial harmony, have been heard by hundreds of millions of people at public gatherings and on radio and television in more than ninety-five countries. It's a God Thing brings together stories Palau has gathered on his travels. These stories, often beginning with the words 'You won't believe what happened to me,' unfold to reveal an unusual and frequently miraculous series of events that transformed the life of the storyteller. Recent polls indicate that the vast majority of Americans-around 90 percent-say they believe in God. Yet even the most consistent churchgoers sometimes wonder why miracles-the recovery of a terminally ill child, the unexpected, much-needed check in the mail-happen to other people. Through its simple, true-life stories, It's a God Thing illustrates the small, often mysterious ways in which God orchestrates events to create something positive amid the confusion and pain of daily life and shows that, even when his intentions are not immediately clear, God gives each individual what he or she needs most.
