Revolution 1989 Revolution 1989 is the first in-depth, authoritative account of a few months that changed the world. At the start of 1989, six European nations were Soviet vassal states. By year’s end, they had all declared national independence and embarked on the road to democracy. How did it happen so quickly? Victor Sebestyen, who was on the scene as a reporter, draws on his firsthand knowledge of the events, on scores of interviews with witnesses and participants, and on newly uncovered archival material. He tells the story through the eyes of ordinary men and women as well as through the strategic moves of world leaders. He shows how the KGB helped bring down former allies, how the United States tried to slow the process, and why the collapse of the Iron Curtain was the catalyst for the fall of the entire Soviet empire. About author(s) VICTOR SEBESTYEN was born in Budapest. He has worked as a journalist on many British newspapers including The Times, the Daily Mail, and the London Evening Standard, where he was foreign editor and editorial writer. He has also written for many American publications, including The New York Times, and was an editor at Newsweek. He is author of Twelve Days: The Story of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, Revolution 1989: The Fall of the Soviet Empire, and 1946: The Making of the Modern World.

Secret Project Notebook
9,40 CHF *

Fritz has just arrived in a place so secret it isn't shown on any map. Even mentioning its name is forbidden. Mail is censored. Visitors are not allowed. When Fritz-known as Franklin until he came here-learns that this remote spot in the New Mexico mountains is the site of a heavily guarded government laboratory, his curiosity takes over. Exactly what are his father and other scientists working on at the lab? It's common knowledge that their top-secret project has something to do with the war in Europe and the Pacific, but what? Fritz is determined to find out. With the help of Kathy, his seventh-grade classmate, Fritz searches for clues. He records each observation and every rumor in a notebook he doesn't dare let out of his sight. His sleuthing-and trying to avoid, evade, or outwit the two bullies who have it in for him-keeps Fritz busy. But he finds time to explore the area with his Spanish-American friend Manny, to become involved in a prank with unintended consequences, and to get into serious trouble when he and Manny show too much interest in a restricted area.

The Forgotten Foundations of Fundraising
22,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An entertaining, informative, and eminently useful guide that draws on psychology, data, and real-world experience to explain what really drives successful fundraising. In The Forgotten Foundations of Fundraising, Jeremy Beer and Jeff Cain, cofounders of American Philanthropic, a leading consulting firm for nonprofit organizations, offer practical lessons and unconventional wisdom for both nonprofit leaders and novices in the art and science of raising money. Drawing upon a wealth of experience, deploying an army of anecdotes, and using eye-opening American Philanthropic survey data, the authors provide a brisk, irreverent, and supremely useful introduction to fundraising for charities and nonprofits. The book explains the hows and whys of a variety of fundraising techniques, from direct mail to planned giving programs. It explores the benefits and pitfalls of prospect research, the keys to donor retention, and the essential elements of a healthy nonprofit culture. It gives insightful advice on making personal meetings count, soliciting foundations, and training young fundraisers. And it does so with sprightly prose and sharp observations. You'll never read another fundraising book quite like this one. Expertly deflating the pretensions of those who would make fundraising a bureaucratic and esoteric profession, Beer and Cain elucidate the practical knowledge and relationship skills that still matter more than anything else. They make an impassioned plea for the importance of civil society to American democracy and build a compelling case for fundraising as an honorable component of a healthy civic culture. Philanthropy is not about bottom lines and return on investment--successful fundraisers provide a platform for donors to affirm their ideals, values, and morals. Fundraising is serious, but learning about it needn't be a chore. The Forgotten Foundations of Fundraising is at once eminently practical and absolutely delightful.
